Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.
Tomb Raider Empire offers you, dear loyal raiders, a little quiz that will help to make things clear. It will be really interesting for us to hear your answers on the given questions and we are sure it will be inter

My Opinion on Internet TrollsMy Opinion on Internet Trolls4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to take some time to talk about the one thing on the internet
that truely gets on the nerves of decent websters like us: Trolls.
and, because I am a man with a good sense of humor.
I decided to discuss like i'm on stage at Comedy Club.
AND, since I dislike trolls.
it may be best if you imagine "Gilbert Gottfried" voice while reading this
(trust me, it'll be funnier that way)
"Today..I want to talk to you about single most ANNOYING thing

that charge ridiculous prices to cross a rickedy old bridge in order to get to Grandma's house.
NO, I am talking about Internet Trolls.
whose only probably difference from traditional trolls..
is that they are found at a Compute

That's right. I have now officially decided to become an independent hobbyist artist. .
My recent video take down due to copyright infringement, the lack of control I had over Major Man (mainly due to the fact that he doesn't belong to me) , and my senseless obsession for him, made me forgot who he really was, and that real artists draw for FUN and not for fame. .
I also think that Fan-art is only a step through art, and that making original stuff is important too.
I've decided to bring on my own personal stuff and to make my own superheroes. Because I can do it, and It'll be so much better for me to have my own characters. It will also help me to develop my imagination and my creativity. Also, I'll, finally, be free to do what ever I want with them.
Lack of Appreciation..is getting ANNOYING!Lack of Appreciation..is getting ANNOYING!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am getting kind of annoyed, right now..
It seems as though nobody really cares about all the hard work, and time spent that I put in this webpage.
I mean..I spend long hours either writing or drawing
and, I get little attention and recognition for my work.
I used to think that I get little reviews of my artwork
because they are only pencil drawings (and, therefor: Difficult to see on a Search Engine)
but, even when i DO dedicate longer hours to coloring my drawings in (which takes DAYS)
it often just sits there, with little to NO reviews (same as my lineart)
at some point, I look at my art pieces and ask: What's the POINT?!
i like to think I do better at writing (and, sometimes i DO)
but, even after working so hard on my fiction pages..most of the time, maximum comments go as high as ONE or, NONE.
I've tried submitting my work to proper groups.
but, i've even struck out on that strategy as well.
either from my submission expiring after waiting for Weeks, even MONTHS!!

I WILL MYSELF GET RID OF THIS PROBLEM !
This is an appeal to the commonsense of my watchers !
What can I say about this guy ? Other than that he made epic drawings (including COMICS), has epic ideas, and is working on an EPIC fanfic, whose prologue has been done lately ?
Do you know how many watchers he has ? 1 !!! and it's me.
Sedusa vs Stewie... Come on, this is awesome !
So, dear watchers of mine, I'll gently ask you to fix this big mistake and unfairness by adding him to your deviantWATCH, he's worth it ! He has amazing ideas and so are his drawings !

My Christmas break is going to be filled with work I need to finish, including commissions (which I REALLY hope I can get finished with finally, sorry for the wait!).

My mom and youngest brother are coming over for Christmas as well. I've also been asked by my other two bros to do the design of their album cover for their band's debut CD. Hopefully I can squeeze in a few designs for that! And do some mailing... one commish in particular and a few gifts.
I've also got some other big plans happening in December, but I'm waiting for details on what I should be doing first. But Let's just say I got my first real job, be it freelance, as an artist.
Now, I must go finish my Praxis paper for an academic course... the very last one of this semester, thank HEAVENS.
God bless, guys!

Random journalMan, I haven't done a journal here in FOREVER! >#<Random journal1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's been at least six months, and that's simply unacceptable!
So I'm going to post a little update journal here to solve that major inactivity.
As you can see I've made a bit of a change to my friends list on FA.
Rather than just listing them all I put them into three categories: daddies / caretakers, brothers / cubby buddies, and fatty friends.
Now you know my friends' specialties and why I enjoy their company
I've also added ~Auzzie to that list.
I've known him for a while now, ever since being on BabyFur.ME which was a while back, and we just recently started talking again. I really enjoy his company and we have absolutely FANTASTIC rps together, so he deserves a spot on my list.
On a different note, I have a nice month-long break from school coming up, and during that time I hopefully will work on some stuff for this account as I haven't posted any submissions in a while either... >#

My mind is being strange againWell it always is but I really couldn't think of a titleMy mind is being strange again1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, I was listening to some Disney songs
And I keep imagining these things.
Ombre singing I'll Make A Man Out Of You (makes a bit of sense, I guess?)
The Other Mother singing Mother Knows Best (Original and Reprise. Again, makes a bit of sense, right?)
Demar singing Be Prepared (Understandable)
Coraline singing I Won't Say I'm In Love (Maybe?)
Norman singing Jack's Lament and/or Poor Jack (Not the movie versions, but still. I have nothing to say for these ones either way.)
Sheera singing Streets Of Gold (IDEK anymore)
and this one isn't Disney but
Norman singing Epiphany from Sweeney Todd (BRAIN. BRAIN STOP.)
Help me actually no don't
I Propose a Challenge...Only those of great wit and courage can take this challenge up. I challenge you to draw a human being transforming into an animal. Not anthropomorphic. Full animal. It can be ANY animal, however, and any human/anthro, real or random, or even a fictional character. This challenge is made for those who normally don't draw animal transformations, that's why I'm proposing it. I'm not saying you have to like the challenge, all I ask is that you do it. It doesn't have to be a sequence drawing, just a simple one stage picture is enough, unless you want to do it in a comic sequence.I Propose a Challenge...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I mainly direct this challenge towards
