Project Sketch 'Em All UPDATEProject Sketch 'Em All3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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. 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.

Vectored: 600/725 (Seismitoad)

After a whole lot of effort, Claire Hayes (producer) managed to get on the phone with Valve's head of legal, and not only do we now have their express approval to make the film, AND to raise money for the production (!!!), but we even got praise for what we've done so far!
I love the smell of victory in the morning. It smells like napalm.

1950 - Laposky's Oscilon
Our story begins in 1950 with Benjamin Francis Laposky, a sign painter and army veteran who was also an artist and mathematician. In addition to getting a kick out of creating Magic Square Puzzles, Ben created what is arguably the first set of computer generated images, "electrical compositions" using a cathode ray oscilloscope:

Artist Identity and Art’s Purpose
A new movie, while only mildly stirring contreversy here in the USA, is causing quite an uproar in England. Anonymous is a big budget Molotov cocktail of a cultural provocation hurled by the producer-director of Godzilla and 2012, Roland Emmerich. He brings the same subtle and nuanced touch he exercised in those films to his latest film, in which he takes up the scorchingly contentious (if little known outside college literature departments) debate ongoing between the “Stratfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by the late-16th Century actor named Shakespeare) and the “Oxfordians” (those who believe the Shakespeare plays were written by Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford

Honestly didn't see that one coming, but I am happy nonetheless. While the first game wasn't very remarkable, I just love the art style and the stark contrast the game presents compared to every other post-apocalyptic-near-future-world that exists. Chock me up to interested.
Didn't see this one coming either. Quite surprised, but personally don't care. I've never really paid attention to fighting games much, yes even Super Smash Bros. I have a feeling this will be one of those games that we think will be amazing, but the newest generation of kids won't understand why they should care (kinda like DuckTales).
Sidenote: Quite disappointed with the way they handled the demonstration by bringing out a woman to play multiplayer with and "destroying" her while simultaneously saying shit like "just give up... it will be over soon." Scripted or not, that scene was appalling.

Happy 4th of JulyHappy 4th of JulyHappy 4th of July2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bla bla bla. Independence. 1776. America. John Adams. Hooray.
So there's been this "internet declaration of independence" that's been going around the web recently, and to be honest I think it's a load of bull. As much as I love free speech and rights and etc, I simply can't get behind it, and it disturbs me that so many companies ARE getting behind it. There's just too much entitlement from people on the internet who think they "deserve" everything, and it's really beginning to creep me out. I'm all for abolishing SOPA and ACTA other things like it, but I just can't in good faith get behind the "internet declaration of independence." Sorry.
What's with this weird anti 4th of July backlash that's going on? All the people complaining about the "patriotism" and stuff. I know it's always existed, but I've never seen it this massive before. Do people really just not understand the point of holidays? It's lik

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.

Morrowind FeatureMorrowind Feature2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is my favourite game of all time, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been planning for awhile to put together a game-inspired feature; unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since most Morrowind-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Morrowind is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2002. The central plot concerns the deity Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses.
Lord Voryn Dagoth had been a good friend of Lord Indoril Nerevar, but they tu
9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS1. UNIVERSALITY - Acrylic are probably the most versatile of paints. You can thin them with water and use as watercolor (they will remain permanent upon drying, unlike watercolor), apply them in full strength, create textures.9 reasons to appreciate ACRYLICS2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. COMBINABLE - This medium is very suitable to be combined with anything you wish - watercolor, ink, pencils, oils... Free your imagination and experiment!
3. NUMEROUS SUITABLE SURFACES - Acrylics can be used on paper, canvas, wood, metal and many more surfaces (this is true, even though they don't adhere towards some surfaces as promptly as oils). This is a great advantage, when you get used to this medium, you can paint at whatever material you've got available.
4. DON'T STINK - That's right, all of you that have experienced headaches caused by oil paint might just appreciate an acrylic vacation!
5. FAST DRYING TIME - Composition doesn't seem right after you put down your first layer? This is not a problem, wait half an hour

"[Name]! Guess what? We're gonna get you in the game! Now!"
"Are you serious, [Brother's name]? You better not be trolling me."
"It's true, [Name]-chan." Japan joined the conversation, "He is not 'trorring', whatever that is. We found a way to get you inside the game."
"A person inside the game has to come out for you to enter, though. Equivalent Exchange; just like in the laws of alchemy." [Brother's name] added.
"Who will come out? I have to be with Romano, so he's not gonna go." I reasoned.
I was very curious as to why Japan would want to come out. Putting my thoughts aside, I asked him why he volunteered to switch with me.
"I berieve onry the four of us (counting Romano) should know about this. It would arso benefit us because [Brother's name] might need assistance with this operation."
"That's understandable." I commented.
"There's also another problem; you can only stay inside the game for half an hour. Is that okay with you, sis?"

"Romano, I only asked if England can get you out of the game; not about when you were imprisoned by him and saw his kitchen in flames. Hey, have you talked to Japan recently?"
"Si, I saw him talking to some guy on his phone not too long ago. I swear he hasn't gone a day without that thing."
Then [Brother's name] walked in my room, cellphone in hand and engaging into deep conversation with the person he was talking to. "Yeah, okay. So I'll talk to you later. Bye.", he then turned his attention to me, "[Name], the preparations for getting you in the game are underway. We're almost ready."
"Really? Thank you so much!" [Brother's name] just smiled and walked out, heading toward his room.
"He seems like someone you could fully trust, unlike my idiota of a fratello.", Romano mumbled.

"What if I run out of time again before I arrive there?"
"You didn't know where I was back then and spent most of your time searching for me. Now that you know where the garden is and where I'll be waiting, we'll have enough time for our date." Romano blushed at the thought of us finally together.
"You have a point there. So it's decided! We'll meet at the garden!"
"By the way, how long can you stay inside the game?"
"Only about 30 minutes..." came my sullen reply.
"Che cosa!? That's too short!"
"I know. That's what I said. I wish I knew a way to stay there longer..."

Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know
