Tip of the Week: VisualizingWhen you visualize the task before you do it, it makes it that much easier to accomplish and accomplished better. Especially for drawing and painting. Before I work on a film, I take about 10 or 20 minutes staring at something dark or close my eyes to try and visualize the movie before I start painting.Tip of the Week: Visualizing4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe that visualizing is the hardest and most powerful way to think. With conscious and persistent practice you can improve your ability to visualize.

Ax Cats are an open species!So I figured there was no real reason for me to keep Ax Cats a closed species, and in fact it would be better for me to have them be open to anyone.Ax Cats are an open species!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Feel free to create your very own Ax Cat! And please consider submitting your work to the Ax Cat folder on Toria-Art!
Please note that my usual "adoptables" rules still apply. I don't want any crazy colors, wings, silly tattoos/markings, etc. They can have war paint and maybe minimal piercings (though most of their body is covered in hard chitin scales). They can have bladed weapons attached to their legs, tail, or bonnet, or robotic light machine guns mounted on their backs (only the bigger, stronger ones, though), but nothing that requires manual operation. KEEP IN MIND THAT THEY ARE ONLY ABOUT AS SMART AS A DOG.
Ax Cats are also pack animals. A lone Ax Cat is a dead Ax Cat, as larger Torian creatures (such as the Torian Devil http://toria-art.deviantart.com/gallery/26680854#/d30y5gc ) will h

What is Spec work?Lately its like a new virus, spreading, this so called contest, were people pick the winning one but they dont give you nothing in return, but they make money. Correct me if im wrong, because probably i miss it but whats the prize in last deviant art event.What is Spec work?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Correcty me if im wrong, people are going to send designs and designs that took months or years in preparations from schools, wasting money in materials, electricity, tablets, tears and blood, and in the end they wont receive anything just a palm in your shoulder saying good job.
Can you pay your bills with your tiny name at the end on credits? Forget about the publicity crappy excuse. People will get paid for this but the winner and contestants they wont.

now i HAVE to post moreJust found out my one of my favorite editors, Ben Abernathy :iconBen-Abernathy: just joined deviantArt! the short history of us? he was the editor behind my FIRST project with DC back in 2000 even though i did not know it! When i landed the Wildcats Version 3.o, he took over as my editor and guided me thru the years- putting me on covers and allowing me to really try different things, explore design and try painting covers for monthly books.now i HAVE to post more3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Id' say without him taking the chance on me, i'd never have gotten this far in my career, and pushing the portfolio i have today with all the things i can provide. Editors like these are what the industry needs more of. Editors to guide talent and give them opportunities to better themselves, and in turn- hopefully introduce new things to the medium, not tell them what to do to just please the bigger man in charge. Our last project together was Justice League Beyond in which we worked together to develop a better way to create comics that are creat

BEFORE WATCHMEN and AH!Well, the word is out: DC Comics is returning to the world of WATCHMEN! And I am drawing all four issues of the DOCTOR MANHATTAN miniseries. First sign of the Apocalypse? You bet!BEFORE WATCHMEN and AH!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's great to finally be able to talk about this project. I signed on AGES ago, and have kept mum about it, until now!
WATCHMEN is arguably the greatest superhero comic ever produced, and without a doubt my absolute favorite. Being allowed to draw these amazing characters isn't actually a dream come true: I never thought something like this would happen. I'm pretty nervous, but having fun so far.
My history with WATCHMEN goes way back. In 1986 I was working at Thunder Road Comics in Burlington, New Jersey, and I sold every issue of WATCHMEN as they came out. It was a pretty amazing time: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS was also shipping, so superhero comics were enjoying a banner year. The mullets, parachute pants, and

Tolkien was, undeniably, a genius, but, for the love of creativity and dynamism; read another f**king book, people.
There's a world of culture, history and myth out there to seek inspiration from! Fantasy should be an exciting, twisted reflection of the world around us, not an endless stream of pirated Lord of the Rings DVDs.
Farewell to The CountJerry Nelson, best known as the voice and pupeteer of Sesame Street's numerically-obsessed vampire, The Count, has died:Farewell to The Count3 years ago in Personal More Like This
He did a great deal of work with Jim Henson and company, so, anyone who A) was a child, and/or B) ever watched TV, will most likely have seen or heard him at some point.
Due to the fact I suck at math, The Count obviously failed me on that front, but damn did I get some good tips on maniacal laughter.

"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,

Till for the win - Argument 4Back for another argument. This one is both hillarious, serious and sad at the same time!Till for the win - Argument 43 years ago in Personal More Like This
I put this up to you who really think that Rammstein are Nazis, and I post this video to prove you once and for all that you are wrong
This video is taped during Rammstein's live-performance in Philadelphia, the 26th of April 2012. If you pay attention to Till and Paul during the intro to Ohne Dich, you can see Till spit, and shout at someone in the audiance. This is all because that guy Till is angry with, was making Nazi-signs at them.
Till also got this dude kicked out from the concert, which wasn't more than right!
This was written all over the internet and I can't call it anything else but "Till for the win". Doing that to this guy clearly proves that they're all sick of people accusing them for being nazis. If they were nazis they would probably be proud over that guy, and recieve him with another of their own nazi-signs.

Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders. Senator Wendy Davis came in early in the morning with the expressed intent of filibustering: The goal being to delay the critical vote.Texas Abortion Bill Filibuster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic
Evil Dead RemakeIf an original film has a splendid core concept, but a budget too low or a director too inept to do it justice, I don't mind a remake. I'll applaud it.Evil Dead Remake3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The most toxic remake thus far has been "Total Recall", which was terrible simply because it used the original as a crutch at more than a few points and, despite having a massive budget and 20 years of technological advancement on the original: felt less exciting and epic.
Closer to the book, sure, but just not as much fun.
And now they've turned their gaze upon "Evil Dead".
Now, I'm not going to try and defend the original Evil Dead, because it's not actually that great a film. This is proven with "Evil Dead 2", in which the entirety of the preceding movie's plot and purpose is successfully reduced to an opening act. Something that wouldn't have been possible were the movie, y'know; good.
"Evil Dead 2" is awesome. It's called a "cult classic" for a reason, and, in my eyes, should have rendered the whole franchise "sacred", meaning you

So my first argument I will call Mann gegen mann
If Rammstein were truly Nazis, would they really let themselves be touched by naked men soaking in massage-oil?
Hm, no I don't think so.
As everyone know the Nazis didn't only grow hate against the jews, but also against handicapped people, gypsies and HOMOSEXUAL people. If you've seen and/or heard the video/song Mann gegen Mann you
