New models tomorrow!Hi guys! I just wanted to give you all a quick rundown as to what was coming up. Since my lego order isn't here yet, I'm going to be posting a lego model I've been meaning to post for quite a while now. I also have a few small mini figures to throw in as well. This should tide you all over until next weekend. I just hope that package gets here soon. I have a back log of tons of new minifigure designs but I can't show them yet until this basted order gets here. I wonder how long it would take to get here if they strapped my order to a rocket?New models tomorrow!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not dead, but I got great news!Hi guys. Sorry for the lack of updates, but my "wonderful" teachers at school decided to go medieval on my ass this week with 4 tests and 3 papers to write up. But that's all in the past now so it's time to get back to work. Since I didn't post anything last weekend and probably not anything this weekend; because of schoolwork, I'm gonna grind through this weekend getting a little something prepared for you all this up coming thanksgiving week. What I have in mind is that my school break starts this upcoming Wednesday and runs til Sunday, so I figured I'd add something new to the gallery each day. That's five days of new lego material! This doesn't mean there is going to be little content either, oh no. Also I got my new camera last week and I am loving every minute using it (SO SHINY)! Thats all for now, have a great weekend!Not dead, but I got great news!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If I had a time machine...Ya know if I had a time machine I'd be using it right now to find out when that blasted lego order of mine would get here because it still isn't here yet. As of right now I'm on fall break at my school, which means I'm off for the next four days. Now I called lego today and gave them my tracking number, and from what I can tell my order was shipped from Connecticut on the 26th of Sept. and is currently in New Jersey. Right now I'm a little tempted to hop in my corvette and floor it all the way to New Jersey and snatch it up at the post office and run away like some evil villain. MWUAHAHAHAHA *ahem* As of now I'm not too sure what I'll be posting this weekend. I have a few ideas but haven't settled on anything as of yet. I just want my order. Guess I'll go back to playing the backlog of games I haven't finished yet.If I had a time machine...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So much this weekend! ^^Well everyone it's that time again. Time for some awesome new models and minifigures. This week I've got a revamped version of my Lightning Dragon. I've also got three new minifigures lined up for you as well. All of which bare the style of the samurai. The first minifigure is the lowest class of them all, the Ghost. The next up is the Raiden model. Lastly is Raijingeki of the Bushido class. Each one sports different traits and attributes. On a side note, you'll start seeing more minifigures like Raijingeki in the near future. I plan on using this new type of model frame as much as possible. It's given me so many more new possibilities than its predecessor. Now for next week I have five new minifigures already done. All that needs to be done is for them to be uploaded. For now check out this weeks newest models below, and as always leave a comment and drop a fav if you like. Until next weekend everyone, I bid you adieu. ^^So much this weekend! ^^2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Too much to do, and so little time!Hi guys, just wanted to let you know I'm not dead. I've been really with school lately because I'm transffering to the main branch of my college for the fall and everything is a bit hectic at the moment. I really don't know when I'll be uploading anything big again. It might not be til the end of April when I'm done with finals. That doesn't mean I'm not working on anything though. Right now I'm actually trying to figure out how I can further improve the mars mission hypersonic dropship I have. I wanna give it a full blown makeover, and give it an up to date look. I hope this works out for me.Too much to do, and so little time!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Yeah, you're going to have to leave Deviant to look at it properly. I promise it won't bite.
It's finally here! ^^Well everybody it's finally done. The epic dragon is 100% complete! I gotta say that this re-build was really a lot of fun! There were a few headaches along the way but what was the hardest thing was that it took a only three days to build but out of the whole 72 hours I only slept about 6 hours because I really wanted to get this done because my midterms are coming up and I didn't want to disappoint any of you who were looking forward to this. ^^ Before I move on, for those of you might ask that you want a step by step build on my dragon that isn't gonna happen. I jumped around so much the only real part I could help you with is the legs and the wings. A step by step is kinda outta the question, sorry. Moving on, the dragon wasn't the only thing on my to-do list for today. If you read my journal yesterday you'll remember that I said I'll be adding some new minifigures as well. Well I don't go back on my word. Ladies and gentlemen I give you two new soldier types. The Wolf aIt's finally here! ^^2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Introducing the deviantART Collection on FotoliaToday, we are announcing the launch of the deviantART Collection on Fotolia, a selection of over 3,000 images from artists on deviantART. It is a grand experiment bringing together the excellence of work on deviantART with an opportunity for artists to gain worldwide commercial exposure for their work.Introducing the deviantART Collection on Fotolia2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
What is the deviantART Collection?
A while back, we announced our partnership with Fotolia.com through the StockProject group, where you can find hundreds of free stock images. We teamed up with Fotolia once again to create the deviantART Collection.
A team of professional photo editors started filtering through images on deviantART looking for excellent photographs that would work on commercial websites, like Fotolia, that sell images for designers and art directors to use in magazines, advertisements and product packaging. The team then offered artists on deviantART an opportunity to

Today we are looking at the Typography gallery, with our Top Tips provided by the wonderful assistance of pica-ae
Check out the tips!
This is one of the first lessons you learn in Typography: "Keep the text readable!" If nobody can read, what you wrote, what's the sense in it?
Now keep in mind that this relates to Design! In Design, Typography is a tool that helps you convey a message. If Typography stands on its own, as an artform or sub-category to Art, this rule is no longer decisive.
If you look at Art, rules are meant to be broken!
There are two sides to why it may be okay for a piece to lack readability.
Too many fonts / Hard to read single words. You can find this very often with music quotes. By using different font siz

PE: The Basics of Giving CritiqueA lot of people seem to think that giving a critique requires you to have an art degree and a lifetime of experience. This is merely an excuse barrier to stop you from trusting yourself in the art of delivering a fine critique. Today's Project Educate guide is an aid to help you consider the basics of critique, and in particular critique on dA.PE: The Basics of Giving Critique2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This article has been written as a guideline overview only and one persons advice. There are hundreds of existing "how to" guides for critique already existing on dA, so if this one doesn't suit you, take a browse and see what else you can find!
The key rules to critique
1. Keep in mind you are writing a CRITIQUE not a CRITICISM. Be wary of your word choices and make sure you keep in mind you are helping the artist for improvement. Be Constructive, not Destructive.
2. Consider you audience- who is the artist reading this critique? How may they react to your words? Be wary of patronising the person you are c

So, you just uploaded your latest image/writing onto deviantART and featured it in your gallery with a slight satisfaction you have achieved something. Fantastic, that is step one and now you can sit back and watch everyone's responses come pouring in and showing you everything you need to do to make your work even more fabulous.
The fact is; getting someone to critique your work isn't as easy as that. If you want critique, you need to seek critique and put in the good effort to get it. It won't always work, no plan is fool proof, but here are some places and advice that could help you find the feedback you desire. Not every place on this list will be your cup of tea, but try and see what works for you.

Pokedex CollectionsThanks to needlesandfred for the picture. Check it out at this http://fav.me/d4mj60ePokedex Collections3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello there! I'm going to be talking about Pokedex Collections. These are collections of artworks of all the Pokemon there are. That's one picture for all 649 Pokemon (That's the current count for now) that exists. If you're interested in doing it, then continue reading.
What exactly is a Pokedex Collection?
To put it simply, a Pokedex Collection is just one picture for each Pokemon in a collection. For example, a complete collection would be all the 649 Pokemon there is, and a Kanto collection will consist of Bulbasaur all the way to Mew.
Should I consider starting on one?
Give a quick glance at your gallery and ask yourself a few questions.
Do some of your Pokemon pictures share the same style? (E.g. Coloring technique, outline style, identical characteristics).
Have you got the motivation continue doing more, if not all of the Pokemon?
Can you continue working
Premade Dolls and their pricesHere's an up-to-date list of all of the premade dolls I have ever made (last updated 3/29/14).Premade Dolls and their prices3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unless otherwise indicated, they are available for sale. Payments are done via Paypal. Shipping is done via USPS. Please allow $5 for shipping in the U.S. and Canada, or ask if you live somewhere else. If you order multiple dolls, I'll shave $5 off the price of each doll after the first. Please see my ordering info post for more details about buying one, or contact me if you have any questions.
I only premake one of each doll. If you want a doll that has already sold you will have to order it custom, and I can't guarantee it will 100% match the dolls in the photos. Information on how to order customs is available here.

The Timeless Code of the Eternal OutsiderWhy Drive will be the movie that is remembered in years to come. Film Noir is a genre of “life in the shadows” movies that became popular in America during the uncertain times of World War II. Westerns have remained a shorthand for the American psyche with their sullen outsiders with a personal code of honor bucking the system. Samurai films mirror the lone avenger protagonist, but set against a longing for a lost society of incorruptible values. Now and again a notable contemporary noir or western or samurai film emerges with little fanfare amidst all the commercial cacophony of the louder, bolder, more spectacular action films that rule today’s box office. One such gem of film blending all three genres flashed out of the shadows briefly in 2011. It’s called “Drive” and I think it is the greatest artistic achievement of the past year.The Timeless Code of the Eternal Outsider3 years ago in Personal More Like This
