Kung Fu Panda: Legends of 'Awfulness'Okay, this just HAS to be addressed.Kung Fu Panda: Legends of 'Awfulness'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
For anyone who hasn't heard, there is a new show on Nickelodeon called, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, a spin-off of the already popular series of movies of the same name. While the show was being pitched to television watchers, such as myself, I got excited!
"Wow, really?! A show about Kung Fu Panda? You're kidding me? More Po, Shifu, and the Furious Five? This has GOT to be too good to be true!"
And what great timing, by the way -- just after the second movie came out! The sequel was beyond fabulous, so why can't the show be? It's just a continuation of what's already been established, right?
WRONG!! WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!!!!
THIS SHOW IS AN UTTER DISGRACE TO ALL THAT IS KUNG FU PANDA!!!!!
I know more about the world of Kung Fu Panda more than these mediocre show-makers! Everything's become a farce -- "how can we take this pain-stakingly created world of culture-
rant + a question!i've been sick for the last few days which gave me an opportunity to finally put work aside and spend some valuable time clearing out my deviantart message center. as usual, this always puts a huge smile on my face, thanks to all of your wonderful comments, praise, encouragement, tips, and so on. thank you guys so much for that - i know there are lots of people who think i don't read their comments, but i read them all and they mean more to me than you think! it also always gets me thinking about my own art and how others percieve it.rant + a question!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
one thing i notice is that different people like my art for different reasons. generally, the more girly, pinup-like artwork gets the most positive feedback, while many others feel that i draw too much of that and should branch out to other things. some people enjoy my sketches a lot more than my finished artwork, whereas others really enjoy the more polished stuff. of course, that's normal, everyone has different opinions and taste.

Lucid dreamsA few days ago I had two lucid dreams. After the second lucid dream I wrote everything down so I wouldn't forget because this seems interesting to share.Lucid dreams3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't remember the first lucid dream. All I remember is being afraid because I realized I was dreaming and I didn't enjoy the experience. I tried hard to wake up, which I did after around 10 seconds. I then went back to sleep, not expecting to experience a lucid dream again (but really, the highest potential to get a lucid dream is when you wake up in the morning and go back to sleep).
When the second dream starts I'm initially not aware that I'm dreaming, so at this point it's a regular dream. I'm sitting behind the table in the living room of my parents' house and the mother of my sister's old school friend is there for some reason. I don't remember who was in the room besides her but it was probably one or both of my parents. I don't have an idea what everyone was doing, either. Suddenly the woman walks up to me and introduces he
I'm not sure if I'm a writer or a visual artist.It doesn't seem like so much of a big deal in that simple sentence, but it is blowing my mind.I'm not sure if I'm a writer or a visual artist.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT: I really wish I could have seen that this journal, the way it was written, implied I was having a dilemma with this, as I'm not. I appreciate all the advice, but my mind being blown is more to do with... I'm amazed I can be so passionate about two things at once. And sometimes I'm so passionate about one or the other, that I can only see myself as 'a writer' or 'a visual artist' at the one time. Because there's no way I could be anything other than a writer/visual artist when I'm enjoying doing one in particular so much.
I don't know if that made any sense.
It's a really hard emotion to communicate, but it's a very positive one.

(This is pretty obvious so I didn't think I need to point it out but it seems that some people need to hear it: No, I don't think all religious people are like this. Yes, I do know these are extreme cases. But the point is that these are all recent events and we shouldn't live in a world where this kind of intolerance still exists. I've lost count the number of times that I've been harassed by Christians so the next time you see someone picking on gay people, saying atheists should be killed, don't be a bystander and just let it happen. Speak up. Stop a crime before it happens.)

1st up was the 'Stone' project. The local comic book shop, The Grinning Demon has organised a comic to raise money for charity, written by Dan Abnett (a professional comic writer, who lives nearby). Different artists will be contributing to the book, with my bad-self turning in a whole page.
I'm gonna be named in the credits, and will more than likely get a link to my deviantart page in the back, when it gets published. My work is at the colourist at the moment, but I will be posting it as it comes back...
2nd is the 'Traveller' project. Again, the brainchild of Graham from The Grinning Demon, is a proposed ongoing comic based in the Traveller Universe.

Welcome to Filii-DiaboliFilii-Diaboli is a school based around the union of dark creatures from all across the world. Here we strive to teach our students the art of how to hone and control their skills through specific classes that specialize in individual subjects. The school was started up two years ago by headmaster Samuel Vitale with the vision that all these dark creatures could unite and further their skills as what they are and learn to face new challenges and experiences.Welcome to Filii-Diaboli3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Teachers are chosen specifically based on skill and unique abilities, only the best of the best and were sought out individually for their jobs.
The school in itself is a huge private academy located in Saratov, Russia. Because of the location, there are still humans living around which both act as a food source and a resource for the students and staff but can also be a threat. Students are to take caution when around them as to try not to draw too much attention to themselves and the academy.

I remember when I first met you, you saw one of my sonic the hedgehog drawings and wanted me to draw you shadow the hedgehog
I was an awkward little fuck and you were this bright happy outgoing young little cutie who became like a little sister to me in only months
and you were the one who got me into Legend of Zelda like really easily~
You are the shoulder that I cry on, the nerd I laugh with and make funny noises with
and when ever you're upset I try my best to make you laugh so I can see that sweet freckled smile
You are the most caring person ever and someday you would make an awesome mother (with a stay at home husband that cooks everything lol)
you're my little snuggle bear~ and I love you to death
You are the happiest girl I know
the first time I met you, you made me read your fanfiction yes I'm going to embarrass you

Another year of being L1M1TL3SS. If you remember, or if you're new, the rundown is that I'm, at the moment, Lifeless, trying to someday be Limitless. It's getting closer to being a reality, but I see now that I have sooo much more work to do than I originally thought. Woot! Lifeless and Lim are getting a little closer, starting to work together in the creation process, but the show seems to be predominantly run by Lim at this point. Lifeless has most of my inner darkness, which I wanna let out a bit and merge with the light to create something entirely new. I feel this will improve me greatly. ^^

Bummed about Animal gamesbah D: Depessed'dBummed about Animal games4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was poking around and caught eye of Wolf-Haven and Wolfventure....
what the fuck...? How come there's so many video games where you play wolves and just wolves D| Yes, WQ is shit, but god damn, there are other cool animals out there! Even in the wolf family, can we explore a different kind of wolf? ;__; sigh. With names like that, I can't even desperately hope that WH and WV will ever have other species choices.
What the wolf is to animal video games gives me that same sick feeling in my stomach I got when I realized the mmorpg community had no shame in copying WoW/Everquest.
I don't even get it, why are so many people so happy to intentionally compete with each other? @_@ How about a hyena once and a while or a fossa or a jaguar. A dingo and a thylacine, a tanuki or the dhole, the bear or the wildebeest. Even a coyote would be a nice bit of variety at this point.
Excuse me now, I'm need to go sulk in the corner.
PuzzlesMany people use the analogy... "each person is a puzzle piece, and we all fit together. We just need to find the right match." or something along those lines. I thought about it today and realized that I disagree with that.Puzzles3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I would describe myself as an entire puzzle. I am composed of hundreds of pieces. I think we all are.
When you love somebody, you give them the whole box of pieces. They can put you together or take you apart. They can take a few pieces with them and never return. And when that happens, you're just an incomplete puzzle. You walk around, and the spaces are visible. But you know what? Even an incomplete puzzle is beautiful. You have a special quality. You have character. Depth. Mystery. A special kind of person will always look at an incomplete puzzle and fill in the spaces.
Myself? I'm an unopened box of puzzle pieces. Perhaps I'm happy this way. Yet I can't help but wonder if somebody would try to put me together, and see the big picture.
Legend of Korra: Costume Design!One of the neat things about being the lead designer of a show like Young Justice is getting to interact with the fans through sites like this one, seeing the awesome fan art you guys do is a big inspiration for myself and a lot of the other artists and writers on the show. It really keeps us motivated knowing that you guys and girls appreciate the characters and stories we are creating. Along with great art my other favorite aspect of fandom, and easily the most hardcore representation of it, is the cosplayers and their dedication to show accurate costumes. So with SDCC right around the corner I thought I would share a little something interesting with all you Legend of Korra fans out there, as well as cosplayers in general. Last year at around this time my good buddy, Joaquim http://2-cents.deviantart.com/, who is a co-executive producer on Korra, asked my wife, she is a clothing designer by trade, to create a show accurate Korra outfit to be worn by the official model representing tLegend of Korra: Costume Design!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM
Thursday Jan 5, 2012
Marco arrived at the airport at around 6 PM... meanwhile, I was having a lot of trouble with my parents, who wouldn't take me.. and wouldn't allow me to get a taxi to go on my own... ended up calling my grandmother to go take me.... we left at around 8 PM ( I will never forgive myself for making him wait that long..)
Anyways, when I got to the airport, it took FOREVER for me to find him. X'D I was... probably as lost as he was. But, when I finally found him, we kinda did that whole dramatic "drop-all-your-things-and-run-to-each-other" and we hugged... it wasn't even awkward at all. It felt as though it were just natural and that I'd done it a million times already. It was... amazing...
we hugged for a long time and whispered stuff to each other in the middle of the airport... had our first little kiss, too. >//w//
