My penance for such indulgence?
"What kind of punishment is that?" some may ask. Gardening is supposedly therapeutic.
Not my garden.
Venturing out there is a bit like playing Jumanji.
Where's that machete?

Tip of the Day: ConcentrationAn essential ability for success is to bend your concentration towards the things that matter the most.Tip of the Day: Concentration3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Punch your mental distractions in the face and start concentrating on what matters.
If it's a loved one that is distracting you, don't punch them... just ask them to give you time to concentrate

10 years?!? wow!!!haha wow, i just noticed that I've officially been on deviantart for 10 years now. gotta draw something to commemorate that soon! i'm not gonna lie, it means quite a lot to me. even though i didn't know it at the time, putting my artwork online and joining art communities like deviantart has become the foundation of pretty much my entire LIFE as i know it now. i mean i started uploading my artwork to this site for fun, just to get in touch with other artists and gain some exposure, and now it is my career. i firmly believe that my fanbase here on deviantart and the things i've learned here have EVERYTHING to do with me being able to work as a freelance artist. i discovered so many inspiring and great artists through this site. the reason i chose the Utrecht School of the Arts as my college was because i followed Bakenius and loved his work; when i didn't like the school i was attending at the time, i contacted him through deviantart notes and he advised me to check out his school10 years?!? wow!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The AvengersYou know that giddy, gleeful feeling that renders you incapable of doing little more than giggle like a lunatic?The Avengers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much had that from start to finish during the Avengers film (Which was released on Fair Blighty's shores as "Avengers Assemble" thanks to the past efforts of Steed and Peel).
There have only been a handful of movies that invoked that kind of response in me: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Abram's Star Trek, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and the first Iron Man film are those which immediately spring to mind.
Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!

Acts of Creation Part 1CREATED BY…?Acts of Creation Part 14 years ago in Personal More Like This
Two words that define so much in a persons head, not so much about who did/does what but, about who created the whole character, the concept, the supporting cast…
Picture this (in an awesome Rod Sterling voice); a talented artist sits alone in his studio wanting to be appreciated for his ideas as well as his artistic talents. On his drawing board sits a rendering of a superhero. This character is dark and brooding, like any good piece of art it speaks volumes. We can see he is angry, that he prefers to serve his form of justice at night and violently. The poor state of his costume shows that he has either had a bad night or that he lacks the wealth of a Bruce Wayne. Along the bottom is written "THE MIDNIGHT FREAK".
Ding – dong. The doorbell rings and his friend turns up with whom he is going to see a movie, this friend is a writer.
So the writer sees the drawing and thinks it is amazing, what's more it inspires him to come up with ideas that the artist didn't. Now the arti
Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: SteampunkWelcome to the land that never was in an era that had never been looking forward to the future that never came.Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: Steampunk1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome, to steampunk.
1. What is steampunk?
Steampunk is a retro-active subgenre of science fiction that incorporates elements of historical fiction, adventure, horror, speculative fiction, fantasy and alternative history. It exists as a hybrid genre that focuses on a re-imagining of the Industrial revolution when men and women create analog machines to achieve the fullest of human potential. Usually set in Victorian England during the mid- to late-1800’s or the American “Wild West” era, this genre incorporate the spirit of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells in their setting and general mood as well as the new-found relationship between man and his machine.
Steampunk has since become an aesthetic movement, sparking off subcultures that focus on visual art, comics, music, clothing, accessories and “custom mods” where modern-day m

Lived Long and ProsperedThe great Leonard Nimoy has died, age 83.Lived Long and Prospered2 months ago in Personal More Like This
There’s not really much I can write about the chap or his impact on sci-fi culture that you’re not already aware of. We all knew and loved him as Spock from Star Trek. Hell, I named one of my webcomic’s characters after him.
Nimoy never forgot about his fans, either, and how it is they who ensured his lasting popularity. It’s telling that it was he who cameoed in the recent Trek films and not Shatner.
Being the awesome man he was, his final words to the public (by way of twitter) were “LLAP”.
“Live Long and Prosper”.

Of art and being a scientist[Original post on my blog]Of art and being a scientist2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have been meaning to write this blog post for a while, but did not really know where to start or how to it would come out.
Although I do not talk very often about anything other than my art stuff here, I have mentionned before that I am a scientist. I defended my PhD last fall, and am currently a postdoc in a major research institution in the UK that shall remain unnamed...
The few times when I have talked about this, either on Facebook or DeviantArt, I was amazed to see all the enthusiastic comments from science students, scientists and science enthusiasts all around. I also received quite a high amount of mail with questions about being both an artist and a scientist, and balancing both an art and a science career.
I personally find it unsurprising that so many scientific-minded people are also artists - the qualities you need to be a good scientist in

By now half the "world" knows that I no longer "work" on deviantART. I can assure you that this is not some cruel practical joke. Many probably wish it to be one but, unfortunately, it is not.
What I am going to do here is offer up a small explanation, of sorts. Due to pending legal issues the specifics of the entire story are unable to be published by me.
This is a small explanation regarding the events leading up to the involuntary termination. I offer the truth, nothing more.
A few weeks ago I started dialogue with Angelo regarding some serious business matters. A number of issues that I had with deviantART, Inc. were bothering me so I thought it pertinent to make an attempt to remedy them.

A very talented corset maker and designer, Ms. Cristiane Tano, suggested that I share my corset-making kickstarter project here.
