ATalkHappy Easter everyone! I feel like... I just want to talk today. Because I think there's things I've learned and feel and think that sometimes I just want to say.ATalk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's start with stories.
What I find great about any form of storytelling is how honest it is. There is no other form of shared knowledge that can teach us how to live our lives better. None. That being said, we see stories in everything. We look at a tree with a fence grown into it, and think of when the fence must have been built, who may have built it, etc. We see a couple arguing on the street and ponder as to what could have gotten them to this point. We hear a snapping twig in the woods, and plan our escape route from whatever magnificent beast lurks in the brush! As human beings, we LOVE stories. But why?
We love stories because they teach us how to live. Think about any good movie, book, or other story. It should have moved you in some way. Some stories teach us how to deal with the intense hardship

An artwork of your animal friend
By an animal friend, I mean your own pet, but it can also be your family pet, family dog for example, as well as some animal you're closely connected to and love very much, like that one special horse of your granddad's you made friends with and love to ride.
Does my animal friend have to be..uhm...alive?
No. I even encourage making an artwork of an animal you loved very much, but unfortunately is no longer with you, for whichever reason. Always wanted to draw your dog you spent so many wonderful years together? Now's a good time.
Introduce us to your animal friend

So long, 2011.2011 was quite the year of extremes.... On the negative side of things, I had my dreams crushed, lost my faith in myself again, lost my mother, and started letting people step all over me (albeit in ways they probably didn't think hurt me as much as they did...). On the positive side of things, I started finally getting mature about what I need to do artwise, rallied (for lack of a better term) an intensely amazing small group of 2-3 friends (and one more-than-friend ) which I actually opened myself up to (not all the way, but more than I ever have before), and started feeling better about myself again by contacting people already in the art industry who told me to keep going (which is good considering all the times I considered just giving it up this year.... still am, admittedly).So long, 2011.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I learned more than I have any other year, I think, and at least 90% of what I learned I learned through lots and lots of pain. But hey, everything I learned was important, and I know I'll use it to make

Photomanipulation Contest PreparationsSome weeks ago, i asked what you think about a contest to test your photomanipulation skills. There was positive feedback, but this contest needs a bit more preparation than the usual ones and won`t start before Januar 2013.Photomanipulation Contest Preparations3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since last weekend i asked around 20 cosplayers or photographers for the permission to use their photos as Stock images for this contest. Trying to build up a collection of 50+ photos for participants to choose from.
Of course the goal is to create a photomanipulation which is fighting game related. After we had contests about colorating, specific styles, games, series it is again a contest not seen before in a game related dA group i think and might be a cool start for FGE to rock 2013 as well
If you are a cosplayer or photographer, you are welcome to recommend you photo(s) for this contest. Just reply here

Again, this journal is once again strictly meant for my EXPANSION followers. Sincerest apologies to those who feel excluded :/ ...
We've narrowed the site providers down to 2, and we'll begin construction of the site by the end of this week!

I want to thank everyone for their patience thus far, and I hope everyone is still as excited about this venture as I am! Content is coming along smoothly, and all the final pieces are coming together. I gotta get back to work, but I wish everyone an excellent week, and will be updating (significant) progress as February marches on!

2012 is going to be a fantastic year for Tomb Raider and Lara Croft! To celebrate the approach of the next Tomb Raider video game, members are challenged to create a ‘I Knew What I Must Become’ artwork. Create a visual or written idea of what you think or what you would like Lara to be like or to look like after her survival adventure on the mysterious island: the moment she becomes a Tomb Raider! The artwork must be titled "I Knew What I Must Become" to show that it is intended as entry into the competition. The challenge before you then is clear: to explore the unknown regions of your creative mind; to use the skills that you have to create a ‘I Knew What I Must Become’-themed artistic jewel.
All forms of creative media are allowed., visual art, artistic writing, photographic art and so forth. Donate your creative idea to the treasure vault gallery. If your jewel shines th

The chosen artists will spend two days at Comic-Con, where they will be able to cruise the convention floor, attend panels, and be introduced by Comic-Con to prominent artists in the industry, with a chance to pick their brains and gain artistic inspiration right from the source.
The recipients will each receive:

What Spyro's Kingdom WasWe finally have visual of what the first game concept of what Spyro's Kingdom looked like.What Spyro's Kingdom Was3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently, this game was originally going to be a MMORPG, in the Legend of Spyro-themed universe. The Portal of Power is mentioned, and we were going to have to use toys to play as our dragon characters in the game world. And just like Spyro's Universe, we customize our lairs. This game idea was proposed to Activision, but it was rejected.

Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny NunsI recently learned that the stereotypical "Japanese Fan Girl" is not some sort of mythical sasquatch of popular culture. I know they exist because my work somehow attracted the attention of one.Unstable Cannibal Zombie Bunny Nuns3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She showed up online one day and started posting weird fan-art and (thanks to google translate) weirder messages.
It was amusing, if a little creepy. Especially when someone found a few pictures she had drawn of a decidedly underage version of myself being violated by tentacles.
I let that slide because, hey; she was a Japanese Fan-girl. They're innately odd.
But then it turned out she was actively following me around the internet, frequenting the same sites and forums as me. Specifically B3TA; a place where you really shouldn't go unless you speak English, have a tough skin and an understanding of serrated British humour.
Fan-girl did not, and was subsequently torn to shreds.
Despite everyone's advice, however (including mine and most of the B3TAns) she kept going back. As such, I don't have m

Phew. That lighting is hard. I think I will reserve it for more important shots.

I won't upload any more scenes, as I'd like the film to be at least a bit of a surprise.
Oh wait, I just realized there are a couple of frames cut off the end. Oh well, not missing much.

Usually I wake up, prepare nomnoms, settle in front of the computer and search for some morning drama. butthurtbrigade was one of my favourite places to acquire my morning dose of concentrated baawws. Now when it is gone I will be forced to actively search for the dramas elsewhere and I don't like that.
