If time travel were ever possible, wouldn't we be seeing people in time machines coming from the future? o_O

or would they be so secretive about being here nobody really knows about it?

or does the government know about it already, yet they're refusing to say anything to the public in order to pacify us?

THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW.

We finally have visual of what the first game concept of what Spyro's Kingdom looked like.

heliosx.com/spyro/index.html

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.

:iconsmushey:

Wanna kill yourself? Imagine this.

You come home from school one day. You've had yet another horrible day. You're just ready to give up. So you go to your room, close the door, and take out that suicide note you've written and rewritten over and over and over You take out those razor blades, and cut for the very last time. You grab that bottle of pills and take them all. Laying down, holding the letter to your chest, you close your eyes for the very last time.
A few hours later, your little brother knocks on your door to come tell you dinners ready. You don't answer, so he walks in. All he sees is you laying on your bed, so he thinks you're asleep. He tells your mom this. Your mom goes to your room to wake you up. She notices something is odd. She grabs the paper in your hand and reads it. Sobbing, she tries to wake you up. She's screaming your name. Your brother, so confused, runs to go tell Dad that "Mommy is crying and sissy won't wake up."

Your dad runs to your room. He looks at your mom, crying, holding the letter to her chest, sitting next to your lifeless body. It hits him, what's going on, and he screams. He screams and throws something at the wall. And then, falling to his knees, he starts to cry. Your mom crawls over to him, and they sit there, holding each other, crying.

The next day at school, there's an announcement. The principal tells everyone about your suicide. It takes a few seconds for it to sink in, and once it does, everyone goes silent. Everyone blames themselves. Your teachers think they were too hard on you. Those mean popular girls, they think of all the things they've said to you. That boy that used to tease you and call you names, he can't help but hate himself for never telling you how beautiful you really are. Your ex boyfriend, the one that you told everything to, that broke up with you.. He can't handle it. He breaks down and starts crying, and runs out of the school. Your friends? They're sobbing too, wondering how they could never see that anything was wrong, wishing they could have helped you before it was too late. And your best friend? She's in shock. She can't believe it. She knew what you were going through, but she never thought it would get that bad… Bad enough for you to end it. She can't cry, she can't feel anything. She stands up, walks out of the classroom, and just sinks to the floor. Shaking, screaming, but no tears coming out.

It's a few days later, at your funeral. The whole town came. Everyone knew you, that girl with the bright smile and bubbly personality. The one that was always there for them, the shoulder to cry on. Lots of people talk about all the good memories they had with you, there were a lot. Everyone's crying, your little brother still doesn't know you killed yourself, he's too young. Your parents just said you died. It hurts him, a lot. You were his big sister, you were supposed to always be there for him. Your best friend, she stays strong through the entire service, but as soon as they start lowering your casket into the ground, she just loses it. She cries and cries and doesn't stop for days.
It's two years later. Most of the kids from school to a counselor/therapist at least once a week. Your teachers all quit their job. Those mean girls have eating disorders now. That boy that used to tease you cuts himself. Your ex boyfriend doesn't know how to love anymore and just sleeps around with girls. Your friends all go into depression. Your best friend? She tried to kill herself. She didn't succeed like you did, but she tried…your brother? He finally found out the truth about your death. He self harms, he cries at night, he does exactly what you did for years leading up to your suicide. Your parents? Their marriage fell apart. Your dad became a workaholic to distract himself from your death. Your mom got diagnosed with depression and just lays in bed all day.

People care.
You may not think so, but they do. Your choices don't just effect you. They effect everyone. Don't end your life, you have so much to live for. Things can't get better if you give up. I'm here for absolutely anyone that needs to talk, no matter who you are. Even if we've NEVER talked before,
I'm here for you.
♥ It hurts. Things do eventually get better. don't give up. ♥

Copy and paste this as your journal to show people there are people out there that care.

A clear explanation of why you can not laugh at the kids and beginners.
Some users (not just spectators, but also good artists) young authors criticize, laugh at "curves" works. This is silly, especially when the authors do not ask for criticism.
Criticism does not work, it just hurts. Assist cautious practical advice and training. The importance of studying anatomy, drawing and theory to understand himself. It is impossible to impose.
The only important thing: the love of his work, love for the intermediate result and a great desire to paint / sculpt. It is better if the young author will draw hundreds of pictures a month of unsuccessful than successful one once a year.
At the same time, it is important to invest ourselves into work, rather than mechanically drawing the line. But investing is not possible if you do not love yourself and your creativity.
I started sculpting in 2006. If I were recaptured desire, if not there were people who liked even the first of ... I'd never sculpted Melhar, Aelhar and others.

:pokeball: UPDATE :pokeball:
Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :iconaldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. :P About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.

Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.
Sketched: 644/725 (Reuniclus)
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: - 89%
Vectored: 600/725 (Seismitoad)
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: - 83%
Colored (And Complete): 560/725 (Serperior)
:star::star::star::star-half::star-empty: - 77%




Hey guys, I'm working on a new Pokemon drawing project with :iconaldenlite:. This project involves the sketching of all 649 Pokemon there is to date. What happens is, I sketch each Pokemon, Aldenlite will vector the outlines, and I'll color them in.

I'll update our progress frequently on this post, so come back and check every few days. We're working at a speed of around 10 everyday, and we plan to finish by early March. That's quite fast considering we started on 30th Nov in the evening.

We have 649 Pokemon to finish, but since we're working on all the different forms (E.g. Unowns have 28 forms, Castform has 4, etc), this brings the number up to 725.

Here's a list of all the additional forms we are going to do:
:bulletblue: Unown (A-Z, ! and ?)
:bulletblue: Castform (Normal, Sunny, Rainy, Snowy)
:bulletblue: Deoxys (Normal, Attack, Defence, Speed)
:bulletblue: Burmy and Wormadam (Plant Cloak, Sandy Cloak, Trash Cloak)
:bulletblue: Cherrim (Overcast, Sunshine)
:bulletblue: Shellos and Gastrodon (West, East)
:bulletblue: Rotom (Normal, Heat, Wash, Frost, Fan, Mow)
:bulletblue: Giratina (Altered, Origin)
:bulletblue: Shaymin (Land, Sky)
:bulletblue: Arceus (Normal, Fire, Water, Electric, Grass, Ice, Fighting, Poison, Ground, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Ghost, Dragon, Dark, Steel)
:bulletblue: Basculin (Red-Striped, Blue-Striped)
:bulletblue: Darmanitan (Standard, Zen)
:bulletblue: Deerling and Sawsbuck (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter)
:bulletblue: Meloetta (Aria, Pirouette)
:bulletblue: Genesect (Normal, Shock, Burn, Chill, Douse)

Progress:
Numbers in brackets includes the extra forms we'll be drawing
:bulletpurple: Generation I: 151/151
:star::star::star::star::star: - 100%
:bulletpurple: Generation II: 127/100(+27)
:star::star::star::star::star: - 100%
:bulletpurple: Generation III: 141/135(+6)
:star::star::star::star::star: - 100%
:bulletpurple: Generation IV: 137/107(+30)
:star::star::star::star::star: - 100%
:bulletpurple: Generation V: 4/156(+13)
:star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty::star-empty: - 2%

Overall progress: 560/725
:star::star::star::star-half::star-empty: - 77%

Edit (9/9/2013)
Hey! Just letting you all know that every-now-and-xen made a tutorial for using this Calculator! So if you're having troubles with my wording for it, please check out her tutorial at this [link]! In addition, she also provided a site and a how to for finding the actual color at the end, so please do have a good look there too!

Edit (11/17/12)
OKAY GUYS, HERE'S THE DEAL WITH CONTACTING ME ON TUMBLR, don't send me an ask there about this calculator unless you honestly can't figure something out. Also, if you have a question, check the second link below (which has answers to questions) to see if someone else asked something similar to what you want to ask.

On that note, please realize that I made this OVER A YEAR AGO (back in early 2011) and that NEW INFORMATION has come out since then in the comic and that Hussie has also released information that I never saw. Please don't contact me on tumblr to inform me about Karkat and limebloods or anything. Chances are I know by now, but thing is, I'm not planning on ever updating the calculator (except on an off chance when the comic ends and we have all the information about trolls, but don't get your hopes up).

I haven't really been spammed, but I do get the questions about it on occassion and I do feel like I've answered a couple of the same/similar questions, so. Also I'm not really exactly in the homestuck fandom anymore, so it's a bit weird sometimes to get the questions. I'm not trying to be rude, if you really need help with this, I'm willing to help, but it's still a bit strange and awkward for me.
Thanks for understanding.

Here is my contact on tumblr and the answers page (please don't always expect me to answer instantly, I may actually have real life stuff going on)
Having problems with the calculator? Contact me here --> eseli.tumblr.com/ask
And then watch this page for the answer --> eseli.tumblr.com/tagged/blood-…

I rarely get on deviant art anymore, so if you ask me on the journal entry, then I probably won't notice the message for another month! At least if you ask me through my tumblr, I should be able to get to the question within 24 hours!

ANOTHER EDIT!

Hey guys! I've noticed a few people messing up a little bit during calculations and with determining blood color!

When you calculate your sign, If you have FOUR/4 signs, divide by FOUR/4; if you have FIVE/5 signs, divide by FIVE/5!!! You want the average of your signs!

If you end up with a number above 12, then you've messed up in your math somewhere and the above is probably the solution!

And when you go to determine your blood color, don't round the number! if you have a 4.5, then you have a yellow-green blood color, not Nepeta's! (through rounding up)



EDIT: Wow! This sure got popular while I was away from Deviant art!! If anyone is curious as to where I am now, you can check out my tumblr: eseli.tumblr.com/ ! If you could also direct all questions and compliments to my ask box there (with something saying "About the Blood Color Calculator" or something so I know what you're talking about!), then that would be appreciated (seeing as I barely get on dA anymore)!

And I'm actually rather amazed to see that it's gotten this popular! Especially in the last month! I never thought that anyone would find it, especially in my journal!

Also!! Someone left this in the comments:

"To get the exact code for the color, this is a helpful site. www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…
Just put in the two trolls you fall between, and select three midpoints. One for each one, .25, .5 and .75
:3"

Calculate Your Troll Blood Color! (For Homestuck fans~)

I was thinking about this during Anime Club and thought it would be cool to share it (because you can have so many signs that relate to the trolls it turns out!)

1.)First, you need to find out your 4/5 patron trolls (YES! I said 4/5). Here are the ones you need:

     -Star Sign: everyone probably knows their's, so this one's easy!~ If you don't, it's not hard to look up.

     -Moon Sign: use this www.lunarium.co.uk/moonsign/ca… to calculate it. (in all honesty, I played around with it and hour/minute doesn't really matter). You have to scroll down after you hit [Calculate Moon Sign].

     -13 Zodiac Sign: you know the new zodiac with Orphiuchetus (or whatever it's called)? Get your sign from that.

     -Chinese Zodiac Sign: I lined the Star Signs and Chinese Zodiac next to each other in the order scientists/astrologers put them in, now you need this (here's my cheat sheet ovo):
-Rat = Aries
-Ox = Taurus
-Tiger = Gemini
-Rabbit = Cancer
-Dragon = Leo
-Snake = Virgo
-Horse = Libra
-Goat = Scorpio
-Monkey = Sagittarius
-Rooster = Capricorn
-Dog = Aquarius
-Pig = Pieces
Please note that if you have a birthday in January/Febuary, you'll probably have TWO (2!!) signs for this, due to Western New Year and Chinese New Year (you'll  have to look up the day of Chinese New Year for your birth year though, for it changes yearly (but it's ALWAYS in Febuary))

2.)Now it's time to calculate, the following chart assigns a number value to each sign based on HEMOSPECTRUM order (so Karkat will be first), though it basically still follows Zodiac order. You will add all 4/5 of your values together and then find the average of them by dividing by the number of signs you have (if you have 4 signs; divide by 4, if you have 5 signs; divide by 5).
                -Cancer (Karkat) = 1
                -Aries (Aradia) = 2
                -Taurus (Tavros) = 3
                -Gemini (Sollux) = 4
                -Leo (Nepeta) = 5
                -Virgo (Kanaya) = 6
                -Libra (Terezi) = 7
                -Scorpio (Vriska) = 8
                -Oriphiuchus (n/a) = 8.5
                -Sagittarius (Equius) = 9
                -Capricorn (Gamzee) = 10
                -Aquarius (Eridan) = 11
                -Pieces (Feferi) = 12

3.)Once you get your average, then look at the chart above and compare the number value you get to the numbers of each character (though ignore Oriphiuchus, there is no character for it and therefore no blood color). Where ever you're number falls in comparison is where your troll blood color is, though it's not perfect and can be various hues where you are (for example, a 4.5 could be barf green or lime green/yellow-green)

Here's my calculation as an example:
-Star Sign: Pieces/Feferi (12)
-Moon Sign: Aries/Aradia (2)
-13 Zodiac: Pieces/Feferi (12)
-Chinese: Dog/Eridan (11)
12+2+12+11=37
37/4 = 9.25

Landtroll or Seatroll?!: if you end up with a number between 10 and 11, you maybe a bit confused by where you dwell. well, if it is 10.5 or higher then you are a seadwellar and 10.499999...etc. means you're still a landdwerllar!

Be sure to post your results! Here's a little fill in you can do when you post :) :

-Star Sign:
-Moon Sign:
-13 Zodiac:
-Chinese:

-Blood Color:

If you have any problems understanding anything, just let me know~ :)

This is not some journal about personal woes. I just want to talk briefly about some attitudes towards realistic (and other) art styles that I've come across that... It just kinda seriously bothers me that people think that way about me and other people and themselves.

So here it is; Drawing realism does not equal elitism.
I don't draw realistically because I think it makes me better than other people and I don't know anyone else who does either. I draw realistically because I like drawing that way. Because I'm very particular about details and drawing little tiny details makes me ridiculously happy. It's just how I like to draw.

It doesn't make me better than you or anyone else.

I don't think any of you are below me because you draw anime/manga or cartoon styles. More power to you because I tend to struggle with it, honestly.
And if we all drew the exact same way, all our art would be the same and it would be boring as hell.
Your art style is unique- it will always need work, refinement, and technical boosts, but your art style will never EVER be "bad". There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the way you or anyone else draws.

Drawing is sort of an escape for a lot of people- it makes them happy so if you don't like someone else's art, then it's not your cup of tea so leave them be. Don't leave some asinine comment about how you don't like it. They are not obligated to draw in a way that makes you or anyone else happy. Their art is FOR THEM.
Which also means-
YOU are not obligated to draw in a way that makes some prick on (or off) the internet happy. Some loser leaves a comment about how your art is "bad", ignore them. Come talk to me even if it gets to you or if you just want to improve some aspect of your art. 
If Some loser thinks the way you draw a character is "wrong"- the only thing "wrong" there is how this miserable person thinks about art and artists because you draw or write a character any freaking way you damn well please.

Some true egotistical jackass thinks your picture or nuzlocke should be drawn to suit their preference? HOW ABOUT NO.

Don't go there.
Don't be that person.

If you're one of my watchers and you think it's okay to complain to another Nuzlocker about their art or that they don't update fast enough- STOP. STOP IT RIGHT NOW. It is not even remotely okay.

No one
has done that to me so far and there are almost 1,000 of you. Not. a. single. one. But I have seen some of you (who say nothing but nice things to me) causing trouble for other Nuzlockers.
Why? I don't know.
But I expect you to have enough common sense and just the simple decency to treat other people and nuzlockers, no matter how they draw or how well, with the same amount of respect as you have all given me because they are just as deserving of being treated like an actual human being as I am.

/end rant.
Aerover and out.

VIDEO: Super3dcow has done something absolutely amazing with INK! Through what I can imagine to be an incredible amount of work, the panels of INK have been given motion and sound in a really amazing and immersing experience!

You can view it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYTWDv… I'd recommend watching in HD!
Also, please comment on it with what you think! Hopefully Act II should be made into a video as well!
Soooo much thanks to the creator of the video for turning my comic into something so cool!

NEWS: And  I'm sure you've been wondering about the fate of INK-- it is certainly NOT BEING DROPPED! I was on a temporary and sudden hiatus due to school, stress, and some other factors. It will return; hopefully very soon. So just sit tight and INK will be back! Until then, watch that awesome video!
