I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'
Disney closes LucasArtsF**k you, Disney. F**k you.Disney closes LucasArts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are not angered by this news, you're obviously a very young gamer and probably (rightly) see LucasArts as nothing more than a mediocre-Star-Wars-title-discharging-sewer-pipe.
Disney bought LucasFilm because of the Star Wars cash-cow, but the number of classic IPs produced by LucasArts throughout the 90s makes the descision to close it rather than attempt to return to the studio to its glory days pretty staggering.
I actually see way more potential in LucasArts IPs than Star Wars.....but then, so would anyone with even the most stunted of creative minds.
Disney obviously still own all the properties, but the LucasArts brand is gone, and it's the end of an era, even if they start picking at the corpse for ideas to ruin.

Well; that was rather good, wasn't it?
Splendid art, voice acting and a compelling narrative on par with any live-action, prime-time series.
The resolution at the end, though, felt a little rushed. While I'm glad there was one, it had an air of finality about it, as though it's uncertain a second season will ever transpire.
If there isn't one; it'll be a crime, given all the work that went into crafting Korra's world.
Powermon Give AwayHello ma friends, here is your friend darksilvania with a happy anouncement (at least for someones will be happy)Powermon Give Away2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You see, as I wander trough many fellow fakemon artist's pages, I come te realize every fakedex has only a very few fakemons, oscillating between 150 to 200 fakes, and when I see mines, well, there are over 500 there...
Probably many would think its not a big problem having so much of them, but lets be realistic, I cant even remeber half of them and in the end I dont like many of them...but I think some of you do...so...I decided I will stay with only a ver short number of fakes and the rest...its here for selling!!!
Im still looking which are the ones Im keeping and which are the ones Im selling, so if you are interested be patient, also, dont worry, no money involved, this time is gonna be points only, so, stay tunned for more news

Age of Ultron***Minor Spoilers***Age of Ultron2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Even at their worst (Iron Man 2), the Marvel movies (The real ones, not that sh*t Fox and Sony keep excreting) are always a fun ride, well worth the price of a cinema ticket. Age of Ultron maintains that level of entertainment.
Despite having a huge array of characters nibbling at screen time, it never feels as sluggish as the midsection of the first Avengers flick. It rockets along at a glorious pace and maintains focus on its own story, but at the same time, Age of Ultron isn’t as good a tale.
Whereas Avengers felt like the end point that multiple movies had been leading up to, Age of Ultron doesn’t seem to further the series’ overarching narrative. It exists purely so we can spend more time in the company of the characters we know and love. Not a bad thing per se, especially with the usual barrage of fast quips and gags causing some genuine LOL moments (“I’m sorry”), but it does
The erasure of human history.Let me tell you a little bit about the House of Wisdom.The erasure of human history.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was founded in the 8th century, eventually becoming based in Baghdad, and was a major intellectual centre during the Islamic Golden Age. Scholars there made it their business to collect as much information as they could, from all corners of the known world. They would collect books and texts and return them home for translation. It made the people of the Islamic world among the most culturally advanced on the planet.
They constructed astronomical observatories, they forwarded the science of medicine, mathematics, chemistry, zoology, geography and cartography. They drew upon the work of both those who had come before, and their contemporaries, and then advanced it. Many inventions from the Islamic Golden Age have had a legacy that lasts up until this very day:

It is the 6th game in the series. You’d have thought by now that all of the flaws, so glaringly obvious in the first game, would have been dealt with, but no. If you try to run up stairs – for example, between the decks of your ship – the player character will leap onto the railing and refuse to come down.
That the main enemy in Ass Creed is still the method of navigation tells you everything you need to know about Ubisoft’s design ethic: “make the game pretty and that way we don’t have to address the mistakes we keep repeating”.
The aesthetic is the only reason I stuck with the series, up until Ass Creed: Revelations, when I finally gave up the battle of attrition against the controls, deciding that there were better games out there for me to spend my time on. In that respect, Ubisoft are much like Rockstar, only that Rockstar present a beautiful virtual world and then

Operation: Birthday Cake and our 3rd RequestBBS contest! For those of you who may be new, the RequestBBS is a way for players to perform odd jobs and sidequests in Chrono X.
Yes, we felt the need to hold another contest. You see, our first contest was made when Chrono X's fanbase was relatively small, thus the entries we received were fairly limited and we wanted a bigger selection.
The second RequestBBS contest we had a slightly bigger fanbase, but due to hosting issues at the time, I am unable to show the rest of you who won that contest. We had to get a whole new forum and that meant the previous entries were lost Not to worry, I did pick out a winner on my end and it has been written and ironed out. But none of that matters now! With both a bigger fanbase and a stable host, we can safely hold this contest for all to enjoy! P
A story, in seventeen acts.Once upon a time, about a century ago, there was an INCREDIBLY HANDSOME guy who drew crummy Mario comics on the internet.A story, in seventeen acts.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And then about twenty more years later there was some new ones, oh man.
BUT, SUDDENLY, THE VAST TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS HIS CRUMMY COMICS ONCE HAD WERE MISSING!
One has to move their EYES to see the next panels of the comic! Was he mad? Surely all of the villagers would rise up and stab him in the neck! He'd surely be sorry then!
But the crummy comic maker (who had large muscles and a rugged chin) assured everyone that there is indeed a 'dot swf' version out there somewhere in the sea of buttocks drawings located in his magic cartoon making device, and also that they should shut up.
He explained that he was going to put up comic pages, mondays, tonsdays and frondays,(EDIT: My editor has brought it to my attention that these are not real days and that it should say 'Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays', but what does he know. A whole lot of butt, that's what
Boobs!......Are they too big?Boobs!...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After I uploaded my last submission I got a couple notes complaining about the breast size on the minotaur girl. While I purposedly made her very...chesty, I noticed whenever I draw a "regular" female body I end giving her breasts that a lot of people consider too big, and when I draw smaller chest sizes is because I focus on it.
What do you people think? Do I draw them too big, in general?
Funnily so, not long ago I found out I should use bras a cup size larger, since I always had markings with the ones I currently wear (42 E), so meh!
Winter Soldier and Imminent Failure****SPOILERS****Winter Soldier and Imminent Failure1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I may need to watch it again, or I may just be cranky that we’re never going to see more 1940s retro sci-fi goodness, but I don’t think Captain America: Winter Soldier was as good as the first Cap movie.
It felt like a generic action film that didn’t really do much with the glut of material that it threw at you over the course of its time on screen. At worst, it criminally underused elements that could have made things more interesting had the makers not tried to shoehorn so much in there.
Zola’s presence, for example, is little more than a bullet-point, despite the wonderful set-piece. Makes you wonder what that vast computer rig was called. The Exposition 4000?
Then there’s the over-used trope of “The guys you’re working for are – shock/horror – THE BADDIES!”. I hate that. I really, really hate that. It doesn’t matter what kind of spin you put on it; that tired old twist just reeks

A While Ago, I Made a Bad FanFictionRecently, I found an old Sonic comic that I made quite a while back. From what I could tell, it is perhaps a good 7 years old, and so most of it felt foreign to me as I read it. Foreign in the sense that the structure is laughable. Imagine a crummy fanfiction, if you will, that was given the honor of being translated into a 100+ page comic. That's what I made then, and that's what I'm looking at now.A While Ago, I Made a Bad FanFiction2 years ago in Personal More Like This
With that said, I'm thinking about posting it.
Not as a legitimate art piece, mind you, but as a means of entertainment. I fully recognize that this mess of a comic book is sub-par in quality, and that's why I wish to present it in a style like most "A Dramatic Reading Of..." videos. So yes, this will be presented with voice-acting. Along with pauses for commentary on it as well. More importantly though, I want it to uphold the same message underlined in "Filler Art: the Message", that all artists came from very humble beginnings, and through the means of practice and constant aims at self

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map
Copyright AbuseOk, the cold hard truth here, If you put something on the internet out to the public, expect it to the inspire others. It just shows they enjoy your work and want to learn from it, that's what being a Idol is about.Copyright Abuse2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"In a recent decision of the Full Federal Court, the Court reaffirmed the fundamental legal principle that copyright does not protect ideas and concepts but only the particular form in which they are expressed. The effect of this principle is that you cannot copyright a style or technique. Copyright only protects you from someone else reproducing one of your actual artworks – not from someone else coming up with their own work in the same style."
You can become known for doing something a certain way but you can't own it, you can only own the work as a whole. The same go's for characters, if its just similar not the same copyrights don't apply, even more so if its a generic design to began with.

Megaman's best selling game is Megaman 2 at 1.5 million units. it is only Capcom's 32nd best selling game.
Megaman has also had over 100 games, which is a lot for a franchise that isn't as popular as people actually think
basically i don't think there ever needs to be any more megaman games because there are more than enough already
and if you want more there are plenty of good fangames in development
