Mega Man X Fanimation and Monty (to clarify)To anyone confused about Monty's involvement in this let me clarify.Mega Man X Fanimation and Monty (to clarify)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Aside from being one of my best friends, huge inspiration and mentor for years...
-He encouraged me to go for it. To do a fan animation of my fav game series rather than use my original lame looking robot character who had no background story or fan base. I already wanted to do an X fan film, so it was clear. (X8 not being my fav of the series, but it was my only resource for models at the time)
-I was hesitant to go through with it out of fear that Capcom would sue me...but this is the guy who made Dead Fantasy...so went on anyway. It was a risk I had to take and thankfully Capcom played it cool.
-He tweaked my animation in the 1 clip from 1:34-36 to make the spin kick look more badass.
-Zero's black visor was his idea.
-He provided the KOS-MOS gatling guns and helped me make th

This is the group's system for the Shadow battle activities held within Shadow Arena only. It requires MorphosManager to be present in the chat.
An alternative to the system would be through the use of coin flipping and a narrative form of battle.

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE...." I haven't reached the point where I think I'm good at this. that's the drive. i know that its in me to be really good at it. and i think i've come close a few times, but i don't usually look at things i've completed and feel content. Which that means the next thing you start, you go in with that attitude that 'this time, I'm gonna get it right.' it doesnt mean you hate everything you do, but i'm never content. And maybe i never will be but i secretly know that that's what makes you grow." - Jamie HewlettTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS OUT THERE....2 years ago in Personal More Like This

After the battle on the Moon, Sigma had his "final defeat", along with Lumine and his plans. X and Zero are just a few steps away from reaching the dreamed peace between reploids and humans... However, dozens, if not hundreds of dangerous Mavericks are still around the world since the fall of the space colony Eurasia, followed by the Nightmare Phenomena and the Maverick Spring - not to mention that the Sigma Virus is still spread through all the world. Finding and putting an end to these criminals is duty of the Maverick Hunters, and it doesn't seem to be such a hard task now that Sigma is gone... But what if one these criminals build a huge conspiracy to wage another war? What if Sigma is not really gone?

Last night at around 6:00 pm, my mother and my sister took my dog, Wrigley, to the animal hospital. For those of you that read my last explosive entry, you know that for the past two months, he's been battling bone cancer. Well, his battle's finally over, and he's not suffering anymore. He put up a good fight, and I'm so proud of him and his brother Max. He's not alone anymore, and that's what's gotten me through these last two day. Sometimes I find myself looking for him, listening for him, only to realize that he's not here anymore. And it's ok.
I want to apologize to those of you that read my last post, I didn't mean to sound so bitter. But I also want to thank you, because without these past few weeks of venting, crying and screaming, I don't think I would have been able to accept it so well. I still took it pretty hard, but not as badly as I thought I would.

Everyone is supposed to share their story of how they discovered DeviantArt and he or she is doing now with their art. So, here's my story of how I discovered this site.
I actually knew about this site for a while before I finally took up the courage to join it. I would look up images of Nintendo characters, because that was my current obsession, and I found :iconnintendrawer:, :iconsaiiko:, and :iconyoshiman1118: and their art. I loved it. I seriously loved it. My friends and I would talk about Nintendo throughout 8th grade and we would write stories for them, particularly Luigi, Yoshi, and Daisy since they were my favorites. I would draw these guys during my classes, even in my late CCD classes. Then, I became obsessed with Kirby. I loved the anime and the games and I would constantly try to draw King Dedede, since he was

I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

So, I guess my plan had some minor flaws. Namely that when you tie up deviantART staff with yarn and lock them in their office supply closet, they can use scissors and letter openers to break free. I even put a mirror on the inside of the door to confuse them! How did they know that was the way out? They're some smart humans.
They broke free, activated their laser pointers, and regained control of the servers and databases while we were dreadfully distracted. Now, everything is back to normal on deviantART. Worst of all, they said we "were very, very bad" and that they were "disappointed in us". That guilt is hard to live with, my friends.
We're back to drawing board now. No, we won't give up hope of total world domination. We're so close, I can feel it! Watch out, world! This isn't the last you'll see of FUR.
But world domination will have to wait until another day. Who's ready for a cat nap?

Censoring the InternetA few weeks ago I made mention of feminist Anita Sarkeesian who started a kickstarter for a web series called "Tropes Vs Women" specifically centered around how women are portrayed in video games.Censoring the Internet3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Despite the fact that kickstarters are payed for by people who've made the decision they want to contribute their money to the project, Anita came under attack from gamers for "scamming" audiences when her fund far exceeded the target goal. Just this past week it's come out that a 25 year old man from Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, Canada, created a video game where the object is to punch the crap out of Anita. Wounds, bruises, and blood gush out the more you beat her up in this virtual game, and it's drawn some widespread attention.
Whether you agree with her viewpoint is not the issue, it's the fact that this retaliation is just "wrong" on so many levels. Do these people realize that what they're doing is shooting themselves in the foot? Making a video game where you beat up someone who's making
