Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `RahllRemember the control room scenes of The Hunger Games? Did you know the concept work for that control room and the 3D displays was done by our very own Reid Southen (Rahll)?Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `Rahll3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Reid is a senior member on deviantART who has been on the site for six years. Reid is also doing concept work for Jupiter Ascending, an upcoming 2014 sci-fi film.
He had posted a journal about his work on the Hunger Games back in February, but wasn't able to upload his work right away. He posted this deviation to his deviantART gallery yesterday:
"I had the pleasure of doing a lot of design work on the control room in the movie, from the interfaces to the holograms and such. Hybride in Montreal did a great job bringing it all to life, and it was fun seeing their tests and the f
Big and I mean BIG news. And wolf PHOTOS.Hi pals!Big and I mean BIG news. And wolf PHOTOS.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Huh, I have a big news about my life.
I finally got a job.
To make you understand - Prague is the capital of the Czech republic, so I am leaving Brno, my home city. The bad thing is that whole my family lives in Brno and I am used to have a very strong bound not only with my closest relatives, but also with aunt, cousins, grandparents. I am the first family member who leaves our city and is moving away.
It is not any disaster, it is just 200 Km, but for the very first time in my life, I will be alone, living on my own.
It was incredibly fast - I got a job on Wednesday.
On Thursday, my mom found a flat which would be nice. And on Friday, I signed the contract with the owner of the flat, so I got a place for living I am moving next Friday. Huh. Huuuh.
The flat is amazing - tiny, but clean, modern, with stuff like bed, internet, sofa, tables, toiler, shower, modern furniture and much more things included. The location is incredible - right next to the underground
Torosaurus is Not TriceratopsEvidence states that Torosaurus and Triceratops are distinct dinosaur genera, not synonyms.Torosaurus is Not Triceratops2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here is the paper: http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0032623#abstract0
Then here is the abstract:
In horned dinosaurs, taxonomy is complicated by the fact that the cranial ornament that distinguishes species changes with age. Based on this observation, it has been proposed that the genera Triceratops and Torosaurus are in fact synonymous, with specimens identified as Torosaurus representing the adult form of Triceratops.
The hypothesis of synonymy makes three testable predictions:
1) the species in question should have similar geographic and stratigraphic distributions
2) specimens assigned to Torosaurus should be more mature than those assigned to Triceratops
3) intermediates should exist that combine featur
Fur and otherToday, one person asked me by Etsy, why in my photos I use real fur. I think it is appropriate to respond publicly, if anyone else is important.Fur and other2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love the fur and other animal materials, but I am against the commercial production of fur. All the fur that I have is the gifts and waste. This is part of the animals that died of natural causes or killed by necessity, not for their fur.
I'm against killing animals for decorations or entertainment, but if the animal is dead, I think that we need use his body as much as possible.
I think it is possible to use materials of animal origin, which are a by-product (if the animal is killed for their meat, but may also use the skin)
I'm not a vegetarian, but I watch with great interest for the work on the creation of artificial meat. I hope that in the future for meat and skins will contain technology that is not going to suffer real animals. This route seems to me more promising than a complete rejection of animal products.
I am attitude very nega
Dimetrodon-backed Spinosaurus is a mythI am once more here, rebuting another mistaken but popular mainstream belief.Dimetrodon-backed Spinosaurus is a myth2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, here is the issue: Sailbacked Spinosaurs.
Spinosaurus has traditionally been depicted with a sail. Jurassic Park 3 is also to blame for this as well.
But just because it's depicted as such, doesn't mean it's true. In fact, it's in this case, it's pretty wrong.
The comparisons used to give Spinosaurus a sail are Dimetrodon and Edaphosaurus, they even literally put a Dimetrodon-esque sail on a spinosaurid body in some reconstructions, like the one shown below:
Obviously, the artist of that image has not even had a look at the pictures of the fossils. By looking at the fossils, it's pretty obvious that Spinosaurus' neural spines looked nothing like it. In fact, Spinosaurus spines actually resemble bison spines more(not a perfect match though) than those pathetic thin rods.
In fact, no suitable comparison can give you a sailbacked Spin

Why is Paleoart Important? - A Response to CauPaleontologist and eminent blogger Andrea Cau has recently written a somewhat controversial article (be mindful that it's translated from Italian) about paleoart and what he calls "paleoartismo". Paleoartismo, from what I can understand, is a sort of "acme" paleoart, wherein the illustrator doesn't have a full understanding, or appreciation, of what they're illustrating. The article has generated a bit of flack, and other paleoartists and enthusiasts have written their thoughts in places like here andWhy is Paleoart Important? - A Response to Cau2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Important Item to AddressAlright, before I start with anything else, please check this out first:Important Item to Address4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Do you have a friend who is, Gay, Lesbian, Trangender, Pansexual or Bi-sexual? Would you really like to have them get shot in the head for just being any sexuality besides Heterosexual? Also the fact that their death/murder would be a completely legal thing to do? What about if you are a Homosexual yourself?
The asshole that created this act, really wants people of these sexualities KILLED and wants to pass a bill that if; Anyone who isn't a heterosexual or even CLASSIFIED as one . . . They can be killed ON FUCKING SITE and their murderer will not be charged with anything. Also, if you SUPPORT any of it, YOU can be sent to jail for 10+ years or guess what?
YOU TOO CAN ALSO BE KILLED AS WELL ON FUCKING SITE. You don't even have to be a homosexual. If you support the LGBTQ+ community, you can get FUCKING KILLED FOR IT.
The asshole I mentioned is trying to pass this bill in Cal

That's right, I am open for Pokemon-commissions now. I decided not only to draw your favourite Pokemon, but also to feature one of your pictures in the description, which will be viewed by thousands of people! I wont take too many commissions by now (about 3 or so), so better get your offer now!
There are two possible commission-types:
You tell me, which Pokemon I should create a Pokedex-entry for and you can also tell me, if I should include some specific information or features etc. The price is set to 120-170 USD (depending on complexity), as these kinds of pictures cost me a lot lot of time and work! If you want me to include other Pokemon in the background (like other evolutions or other little Pokemon) it will add to the price.

Nigeria, in the last decade or so has seen thousands of people die because they were Muslim OR Christian. They are killing each other by the hundreds with guns, machetes, or whatever means available. Women and children slain in their homes because they were a different religion. What possible God sees this as OK? OH perhaps it's the god that commands his followers to kill thousands and thousands of people in the Bible. Seems like the same one to me.
There are property rights and what the government refers to as "indigeneship" in Nigeria. It means whoever was first to live on a particular parcel of land, has the rights to it. Add to this law of "indigeneship" the fact that Nigeria now produces a LOT of oil and you have the makings of a war. Ironically, the "democratic" government has embezzled four t
