Want to work on a game with me?Edit: Do not link me to character designs/comic pages/etc! I AM NOT LOOKING FOR THAT! If you don't have background designs, then don't apply! Sending unrelated artwork is unprofessional and a waste of my time.Want to work on a game with me?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey folks, as I’ve mentioned a couple times, I’m working on a game project! As of right now, I’m handling all of the artwork myself, and it’s a pretty daunting task. So, I’m looking to outsource some of the work.
Naturally I don’t expect good work for free. This would be a paid gig!
If you would like to be involved but are short on time (I can relate) we could possibly work something out where you just sketch the backgrounds and someone else inks/colors them. It’s the design aspect I need assistance with.
If you’re interested, please send me an email with some samples of your artwork @ email@example.com.
Please spread the word! I need applications ASAP. You can help b
In Response to a Post...Cross-posting from Tumblr since this is more relevant to my dA. The following post is in response to the following confession on tumblr:In Response to a Post...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
DISCLAIMER: This is NOT saying the person who wrote this is WRONG. Just surprised because I have a bias and don't always see how another person interprets my actions on the internet. Please DO NOT harrass the OP for this confession. I doubt the people who already disliked me and saw just the confession will change their mind over my thoughts but might as well post it here as an FYI of sorts.
When I post art, I always expect crit. Even though I don't formally request it, I do assume some people to come by and evaluate my stuff because they feel like they can communicate with an artist with something helpful. And even though I get a ton of comments daily and might not reply to all of them, I do try to at least read through most. Save for the occasional friendly

Guard Dialogue Overhaul http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/23390/?
Updates the Guard dialogue to be much more diverse and has them comment more specifically on your accomplishments in the game rather than repeating the same dialogue over and over again.
Flyable Broomsticks http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/19069
Adds a crafting recipe and a levitation spell that makes brooms flyable. Be a witch!
Adds footprints for when you run in snow or ash. Makes animals and dragons leave prints as well. Good for hunter immersion.

I don't mind Leo's crush on Karai that much.
I mean, I don't like her character, I never have in any of the turtles universes ( I pretty much always dislike girl characters for some reason ._. I dunno why. ) but I know she and Leo have always had this weird fascination for one another, so it's expected they'd stay constant with that. Plus, yknow... raging teenager hormones and all.
But what really makes me accept it is how perfectly Raph is reacting to it.
God. Damn. Raphie, seriously, I love you so much. Unnnf.
Makes me wonder if Leo'll get all jealous and possessive when Casey comes in and becomes Raph's best buddy. Eeeee.

I'm sitting in the little living room of the bungalow I share with my boyfriend, buried under a pile of dogs (I have threetwo corgis and a Chihuahua), and attempting to not hyperventilate into a paper bag.

I'm doing Cover # 3 for the official Adventure Time comics! Words can't describe how excited and flattered I am to have this opportunity! When I was first offered the job, I had to take a break from my desk to DANCE. Working on official comics for one of my favorite cartoons has always been a dream of mine. I'm thrilled to be working alongside with webcomic royalty like Ryan North and Emily Carrol, and the other amazingly talented creators on board. <3
Here's a little teaser! I'm told the final colors for this cover may be tweaked slightly in the final. Shannon Watters (editor of Boom! comics) requested a more girl-centric cover, so as you can guess I really had a field day with it.
I may be doing more work for the comics in the future, but I'm not sure I can comment on that just yet. Stay tuned, an

Over the past couple of days I've posted either illustrations about controversial issues or made journal posts with potentially polarizing topics. But wonderfully, the vast majority of the responses to those have been overwhelmingly intellectual and well thought out discussions. I just wanted to thank everyone who participated in those discussions because I know how easily it all could've devolved into opinionated attacks, arguments, and "drama." It really makes me happy to see that I can put out a topic and people can discuss said topic without being a jerk about it. That's truly fantastic and I am very happy users proceeded with calm and collected responses. It's been a treat to read through them all.

Now as many may or may not have heard, the back room people of the group have been trying to piece together a definitive story of Neo Robia for you and now after much thought and deliberation, we have decided the best media in order to provide you of this is in the form of a Radio Drama!
Over the last month we have started to alter the existing scripts we have to make it more “audio friendly” so that it will be more fulfilling once you listen to it, but in the mean time, everyone’s favourite alcoholic skunk has written a mini teaser trailer in order to help advertise the Radio Drama.

A Link to the Past 2A Link to the Past 2 for the 3DSA Link to the Past 23 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nintendo just announced this as part of their Nintendo Direct presentation, along side other titles like a Yoshi's Island sequel.
Nintendo. STOP BEING AWESOME. STOP IT!
Miyamoto said once that he wanted to remake A Link to the Past for the 3DS. Now it looks like this is the genesis of that idea. Of course being Miyamoto just a simple remake isn't good enough, it's got to include all new dungeons and gameplay mechanics while staying true to the tried and true top down gameplay. Any new handheld Zelda game that ditches the bullshit touch control system to move is a great idea in my books, but doing it with one of my absolute favorite Zelda games of all time? Nintendo, I love you.
Hypothetical question: Since this game takes place in the same universe as A Link to the Past, features locations from that game, and now that the game engine is made... couldn't they just release the remake to A Link to the Past as well? I mean, don't get me wrong as a Ni

Minecraft - Custom PVP Map - ''Traders''Map can be downloaded here: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/traders/Minecraft - Custom PVP Map - ''Traders''3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made another Player Vs Player map in Minecraft. The map is called "TRADERS" and it utilizes the Testificate trading system to achieve cool weapons.
The goal is simple. When you begin the game, two teams are simultaneously dropped into opposite worlds. Both worlds are a mirror version of each other, so no one has an advantage or disadvantage. The two teams will have 15 minutes to dig, collect, trade, enchant, and equip, before the sand doors connecting the worlds come tumbling down.
You can dig for iron to make weapons and gear... but there is no Diamond or Gold located anywhere on the map. If you want diamond weapons and gear (or enchantment potions or quick tools), you need to trade with the Testificates.
Scattered across the landscape are treasure chests, each containing emeralds. Collect these emeralds and use them to purchase good weapons and gear from the Testificate traders.
When the door comes down...

A Fantastic Tool for Combating Art ThievesLooking back at that art thief incident, I was reminded of the times in which I came across a familiar work in a thief's gallery but had NO idea where the original was. I was lucky that someone was able to recognize my work and inform me of the theft, but there are so much unreported theft on deviantART and on the Internet as a whole, and its harder to report the theft without links to an original source. Now, I know I'm not the first to discover this tool (in fact, I'm probably the last and will most likely receive a chorus of "Oh, I already knew that!" responses, but this is too important to ignore), but Google has extra features to its image search engine: reverse image search.A Fantastic Tool for Combating Art Thieves4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Controversial OpinionsYou know, sometimes having opinions can make you feel like no one else shares your views, especially if your views aren't being widely vocalized around you. Case in point: It's just been announced that J.J.Abrams will be directing Star Wars 7, and the internet is raging with butthurt about how shitty Abrams is, making over abundant lens flare jokes, and bemoaning the reboot of Star Trek in the process.Controversial Opinions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thing is... I like J.J.Abrams. I liked LOST (despite it's shitty/rushed ending). I liked Super 8. I liked Cloverfield. I even enjoyed the recent Star Trek reboot and am looking forward to the sequel. I never had a problem with lens flares or noticed them being over used. And I think overall Abrams has made a fairly consistent batch of quality movies, which is a amazing considering how many directors flip flop between great and shitty.
But I can't often come right out and say that sort of thing because when I do I get attacked for having an opinion that runs counter to the vast majority o

Black MarchHay guys, remember SOPA and PIPA and all that?Black March4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well the music and film industries keep pushing for new laws, so it doesn't look like anyone's getting a break yet.
The assclown that came up with SOPA has now written up PCIPA, or "Protecting Children from Internet Pornographers".
Yup, preventing piracy wasn't a good enough excuse apparently, so now they're using child porn as an excuse to censor the internet and monitor everyone.
At least ACTA looks like it's gonna get kicked out by the EU pretty soon, due to all the protests and petitions.
Politicians may be corrupted and senile as fuck, but if enough people threaten to get them voted out of power, well they can't really argue with that. So keep spreading the word, join protests and at least sign some petitions.
Finally, to fight back against the music, film and other industries that are pushing these laws, you should join Black March and not buy any media for the rest of this month. Don't go see any movies, don't buy any CDs, DVDs or v
