ManlyCosplay Feature -BeardsThere is nothing quite as manly as fine facial hair. Many of the manliest characters sport impressive beards, and it requires a special kind of cosplayer to pull off such a character well.ManlyCosplay Feature -Beards4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are some of ManyCosplay's favourite bearded cosplays from our galleries!
Leonidas. Beard. Enough said.
Even Kratos' beard looks angry and aggressive.
Barret is known for his massive size, artificial gun arm …and his epic beard!
Hawke pimpin’s a well-trimmed beard.
What would Ezio be without his beard?
I don’t think I have to add any explanation for this one. Epic beard is epic!
Curly beards FTW! Also, an excellent cosplay of a classic series!
On sheer volume, you cannot beat this beard;
Ganondorfs beard is a classic:
Asuma knows scraggly beards.
Artist Toolbox: Game Art toolsThis is just the base journal as i had some issues with sta.sh last night. the real one will go live on the Project educate page at 3pm edt, 12pm pst about 4 or so hours after ValaSedai's to give her's some time, since mine is after hers. <3Artist Toolbox: Game Art tools2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So as per the theme of Artist's Toolbox week, we continue on with the various tools Game Developers, or more specifically, Game Development Artists would use Now these are only some tools that I will go into detail with (generally the main ones) but I will list various others at the end of the article that I know of but are less common.
Let's get started!
One of the main Game Development tools out there for concept art, texture art, storyboard art, etc. Photoshop is a must have must know tool in the GDA world and is often one of the main programs installed at various studios. Photoshop has evolved from what it was originally (quite literally a photo editing tool with basic art skills) to a program a large
Need for ToleranceFrom Reddit:Need for Tolerance4 years ago in Personal More Like This
(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.)

Foreign Words the English Language NeedsOh hello. I’m finally getting around to making this news article that I said I might do, like, a month ago. Sorry, I’m not used to writing news articles. Bear with me.Foreign Words the English Language Needs3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country

Just few days ago I announced the voice acting casting and now, when it's over, I must say, I'M OVERWHELMED with the amount of help and submissions to the animation project! ;A; Overall, I've got over 250 submissions that I'm still checking out (so I'm sorry If I my replies are a little delayed..But I'm just a person, not a company X'D). Regarding to the fact that I've got so many submissions and the choice of the actors is constantly getting harder for me (some of them were so great I've been nearly spasming due to the excitement), I've decided that I'll announce the cast on Monday 21th Thank You once again for all Your concern and interest in the casting and project overall, I promise to submit more works in progress from the project as soon as we have something new

It's a basics to intermediate level course, which is about where I stand in my knowledge so it was an amazing opportunity. Plus it's inspiring me to create new work so bonus!!

Going to plan some community events for the summer so stay tuned
Now for the advice part
One thing I noticed with students, grads and even people just aspiring to make Art their "forever job" is that they are far too sensitive. Getting snippy when someone asks questions, points out technical flaws (no not your "style" excuse is going to cut it, if the anatomy is wrong and distracting to your work, that is a technical flaw).

I was going to be a Surgeon.
As a child, it was Veterinarian, but as I grew up I realized with my brain, I should use it to help people. How better to help people than to save lives?
It didn't work out. Second semester of ninth grade I started getting stomach aches. Sounds like no big deal but it was, as a kid who had never been sick suddenly getting out of bed in the morning was a challenge. I missed school. A lot of school. Fell far enough behind that for the first time in my entire life I was going to have to struggle to pass my classes.
Me—the child who got A's in her sleep—all because of some stomach aches. "They can't be that bad, you just don't want to come to school." But I did want to go to school. Problem was, insecure kid that I was, I started to believe everyone who told me I was making it up. I was a skipper, a delinquent.
Then it got worse. Grade ten rolled around and suddenly I have headaches, too. Migraines. Every day. To my frien

On January 25, 2013, Google Image Search Engine introduced a new format for showing image search results to online users. This format shows full resolution images on Google's Image Network.
Why it is bad for users ?
1. Users have to click more to get to the final image.
2. Users can not search for similar images.
3. Users do not get correct image descriptions.
4. It will be difficult for users to find the images they are looking for.

So I thought I'd do a little re-cap of the last few months for those who for some reason haven't been with us:
Kitacon - Once the registration numbers were increased, Sparky, Floppy, Buddy, Mini and myself all managed to attend this in April and what a weekend. Two very different stories from the team after this one, though we all started in the same place at the Friday night party, as Floppy and Mini stayed out all night enjoying party con to it's full reputation while Sparky and I spent our time at the con during daylight as they slept it off. Two of us spent the weekend in photoshoot world, playing in the wood-like areas outside the main hotel, resulting in lots of photos and a video:
The footage of Sparky wasn't used in this one, but it's still in Nert's folders so look out for her twirly staff action in future videos, along with video of our little
