This Gets on my Nerves - ProportionsRecently I stumbled across a lot of posts here on DA concerned with drawing the human form, and how to differentiate easily between the male and female form without drawing upon obvious sexual characteristics. It's aaaalll about the skeletal structure.This Gets on my Nerves - Proportions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Basically, as a rule of thumb, the skeleton of a man has wider shoulders than hips, in a "V" shape. The skeleton of a woman has wider hips than shoulders, though not quite as drastically so as the opposite in men. More like an "8" shape. To confuse matters, make them both the same width for an androgynous looking thing. It's simple and it works. As a rule of thumb.
By sticking to this, you can get away without ginormous boobies on your Fe-MOCs, and having... idk, hair or somethin' on a He-MOC.
The post in question is this: by :iconcandy2021:. I really, really reccomend looking up some of her posts concerning proportions and body types. Even though they're geared towards drawing, they also apply to 3D models and MOC makin

kk quick conceptsthe matoran race is split into three different groups: toa, tohunga, and turaga, so when i talk about toa, im just talking about all three, but anyway, for my headcanon toa are completely organic with the exception of their endo and exoskeletons, there can be males or females of either element, but there is hardly any sexual dimorphism between the two, aside from voices, faces, genitals and ever so slightly, the hip to shoulder ratio, all in all they have a fairly androgynous look. toa, if left alone they will venture around in the nude, only wearing shorts for common decency around glatorian, skakdi, and vortixx, or other clothed races, or a pair of sandals to protect their feet.kk quick concepts1 year ago in Personal More Like This
toa of fire are skinny as hell, due to the majority of there fat being converted to fuel
toa of ice are usually hefty and need a layer of fat under their "skin"

Gallifrey really does exist ??????????????????????I learned yesterday from Deviant Art user Holly :iconShockwaves-Sister: that a planet has recently been discovered which is said to resemble Gallifrey, the Doctor's homeworld from our very own D O C T O R W H O !!!!!!!!!!!!.Gallifrey really does exist ??????????????????????3 months ago in Personal More Like This
There is a petition online to change the planet's name, currently called 'HD 106906 b', which sounds dead boring like those planets that get named something like 'P4X-639' in the US Sci-Fi series 'Stargate SG-1', to change the planets name to GALLIFREY !!!!!!!!!!!!.
The online petition currently has, at the time of writing this brief Journal, 67,942 signatures, I've done it, so please do too, let's get this newly discovered planet named GALLIFREY !!!!!!!!!!!!.
It needs at least 90,000 signatures in total, so it seems to be halfway there

Humans Becoming Robots, Robots Becoming HumanOn March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a “Google Driverless Car.” The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, instantly increasing limited human speed, strength, endurance and accuracy.Humans Becoming Robots, Robots Becoming Human2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

No matter the digital end point or theatre of conversation, whether it be politics, war, privacy, pop culture, or the rise of machines – Drones or UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) are the current catalyst du jour in any number of flashpoint discussions.

What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Paths to Adventure fantasy and sci-fi map Jam- extAs presaged in my poll, I am extending the jam for another month to July 1st. Also,I didn't do it but my watch backlog was wiped in the last update. Perhaps it is for the best.Paths to Adventure fantasy and sci-fi map Jam- ext2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of my favorite parts of role playing is the creation of maps and floor/deck plans and no fantasy novel is worth it's salt without a map at the beginning. On the theory that I am not alone in this (and because it won a poll back in January) and after an un-foreseen delay (and another one because I didn't want to compete with Obscurijam) I am pleased to announce the Paths to Adventure map jam.
1 Art must be new and made for the jam.
2 Art can be a map, deck or floor plan, star chart, or other diagram used to show the relative locations of at least 2 objects in their environment.
3 Leave a link here to your entry.

ON GOING ARMEDIt has become a bit controversial to carry weapons, but I carry anyway. Openly: knife and pistol.ON GOING ARMED1 year ago in Personal More Like This
People who raise an eyebrow get a friendly smile and explanation.
People who whine get a polite but stern explanation.
Honestly, most people seem to assume I'm a policeman... others for reasons I cannot imagine take me for a bounty hunter. Most seem quite surprised when I say "no, sir/ma'am - I'm just a law abiding citizen exercising my natural right and responsibility to see to my own protection."
It does help to be perfectly friendly and open about it.
And it helps to get it in your bones that there really is nothing odd about going armed.
If you honestly believe it and feel totally natural about it, it seems to disarm most people's anxiety (*most* people, not all. people who carry their anti-gun obsession around like a club to beat people with cannot be reached - they have religion: shun them).
But the thing is - people who go armed in a manner or with an attitude of making a big stink

Well guys, I must announce that this particular account is going to be, more or less, closing down. I don't plan on updating it anymore, and I will probably only pop in once in a great while to check messages. Kind of like how I've been doing for a while now. XD
My interests have done a 180 and I don't feel like I can maintain this account properly anymore. Any updates I do make would likely be uninteresting to the majority of my watchers, and it certainly wouldn't fit in with the somewhat existing scheme of things on this account.
So... instead of trying to morph it, I figured it was time to start fresh.
For those interested in still keeping up with my art updates, you can now find me at BabyBarracuda. Be warned though: themes will consist of lots of classic TV shows, original art, perhaps some photography, and the occasional costume, which probably won't be anime-related anymore. XD
To those who will keep following despite the account and theme c
