Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The SanctuaryThree weeks later. Due to the incident of Lumine and the new generation reploids going maverick. The new generation reploids production has been halted. Growing weary from the Reploids maverick actions, Humans have created a settlement away from the reploids from different places on earth. The New Generation Reploids incident of going Maverick was kept classified so it won’t spread fear to humans.Megaman X9 Chapter 1: The Sanctuary9 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
X and Zero reported this incident from the higher authority. They mention about their comrade Axl in comatose because Lumine lashes something on his forehead. Axl have not awaken for 3 weeks so X and Zero decided to bring Axl to a more advance investigatory process because he does not show any sign of recovery from the Headquarters. They admitted Axl in New Generation Reploids Research Facility.
Dr. Craig Sid one of the most brilliant scientist of that time hears of the situation. He gets very interested when he heard that it has something in relation

(After you defeat 1st Maverick)
Dr. Craig Sid makes a worldwide announcement to the humans affected on the present maverick attacks. He expresses sympathy over the humans harmed by the Old generation Reploid mavericks. Showing a kind heart, he offers a newly built human settlement near the Jakob elevator. The settlement will only be for humans to secure them from another maverick attacks. He welcomes any humans who wanted to reside to that place. It was dubbed by Dr. Craig Sid, “The Sanctuary”. Humans are pleased with the announcement. Many humans immediately go to the sanctuary Dr. Sid proposes but some stayed to their places because they don’t trust the reploids anymore.
Hearing this, Dr. Sid gained the trust of X and Zero. The hunters realizes that it was Dr. Sid who created the Sanctuary.

Just How Big is the U.S.S. Vengeance?I've run a few very basic preliminary calculations to try to see just how massive the Dreadnought-class battleship U.S.S. Vengeance from "Star Trek: Into Darkness" is going to be. And if we take the official length of the new Enterprise as a whopping 700+ meters, this vessel is indeed going to be a giant monster.Just How Big is the U.S.S. Vengeance?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
John Harrison explicitly says that she's twice the size of Enterprise, and I confirmed that by doing a comparison measurement of the two CGI models. So using that and other official numbers as a basis and using very rough visual estimates to get some ballpark numbers, here is what I get for the Dreadnought Class if we take the Enterprise's length at 760 meters or 2,500 feet the length given in the "Experience the Enterprise" promotional feature from the 2009 film's advertising campaign. I am also using a deck chart I found for the new Enterprise (at her enormou
2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
2D section covers all kind of colored, shaded images, preferably drawn with outlines.
3D works is about polygonal objects of all kinds, textured and with some post-processing for nice looks.
Vector images refer to things drawn with hard lines and occasional shading, such as blueprints and ink-like drawings.
I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for anything that you can think of.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the bottom of this entry.
I am looking forward to working with you and seeing a happy finish

1. They don't have flaws. Flaws are the first thing that should be explored in character, at least after the first flashes of inspiration have passed and you start moving into more concrete turf. People say Mary Sues are defined by lack of flaws; the flip side insists that giving your character "issues" won't make a character any less of a Mary Sue. Now, my definition of a Mary Sue doesn't involve flaws or the lack thereof; a Mary Sue, to me, is defined by the disproportionate amount of attention given to a Sue by the plot and the priorities of other characters. So, yes, it possible for a Mary Sue to have legit flaws and still be a Mary Sue. However, the difference between "issues" and a character flaw is what role they play in the character's deve
Finally read BEN DrownedSo yeah, FINALLY took the time to read Ben's story XDFinally read BEN Drowned2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I must say, Ben was added to my art due to popular demand. In the beginning to me he was just one of those random creepypastas who I didn't really care about, like how Tails Doll or Sonic.exe is to me currently. Basically someone who I don't really care for and is just there.
But after reading his story, watching the videos, and chatting with him on cleverbot (XD) I think he's probably one of my top creepypastas now, right beside Splendorman and Eyeless Jack.
I spent over an hour just reading the damn thing, watching the videos, and looking at pictures to do with Ben; which is the longest I've ever spent on a single pasta.
The pasta itself was well done, and didn't contain too many cliches that I've seen in other videogame pastas.
Although the part about finding the cartridge at a garage sale of a creepy and mysterious old man, that part I've seen once or twice before in other video game pastas. But of course, I don't

E3 Thoughts Day 3Wii Fit TrainerE3 Thoughts Day 32 years ago in Personal More Like This
You know, I was on the fence about the new Smash Bros game. Even with Mega Man I didn't really see anything remarkable about the game to peak my interest. But then when Nintendo unveiled the Wii Fit personal trainer as a playable character? F**k Yeah! Bludgeon your opponents to death with YOGA moves? That's the sort of nonsensical whimsy that I think was sorely lacking from this version of franchise. Count me in!
Still not sure how the 3DS and Wii U version are going to interact with each other, if at all. Iwata has said that the 3DS will have different stages, so that suggests that they aren't compatible. But then, if they're not compatible, why put out 2 games at once? Frankly, I like the idea of being able to play against Wii U opponents from the comfort of my 3DS. That would be really cool, but I don't know if that's a thing they're looking to do or not. Hmm..
PS: Maybe it's just me, but I found it rather hilarious how all the characters were practicing Yoga
Sharing is CaringSo as most of you know I posted a video tutorial of me making one of my dragons on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vCiPn7MUjw&context=C4b5df20ADvjVQa1PpcFNlI9Ovm88GNUagg5YVFu4EzQY19W7S2b8= It's been pretty cool seeing the dragons people have made from watching it. I think it might be fun to post them in a journal, just to see how different and unique they all turned out.Sharing is Caring3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know some of you have expressed concern that the video will just encourage copycats. Well, after over two years of posting online I have learned a few things. First, imitation and copying is inevitable. It sucks but it IS going to happen at some point if your work becomes popular enough. I do have copycats, and I do keep an eye on them. I can't really do much about them, unless they blatantly copy a design. So I've learned to live with it. I appear to have a very protective fanbase, as I am constantly alerted by you good people when anyone might be copying me. I like to think that most people can figure out
Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?

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.

Here's a sample of responses I've heard from some editors over the years when I've raised practical business concerns regarding comic book publishing:
"No, we don't know exactly what books you'll be doing, but we're (insert name of big publisher) Comics, so sign exclusive with us and not (insert name of competing publisher who has titles ready for you)!"
"This is a (insert name of big writer) book! I know he's late, but just think of how many people would love to be in your shoes!"
"The page rate isn't good, but at least you'll be getting to work with (name of big superhero whom you're supposed to be a fan of)!"
"We won't fly you out or put you into a hotel, but you should come so you can sign at the booth for us! Who doesn't love signing autographs?"
What do these statements have in common? They're emotional arguments made to sidestep yo

You cannot understand how happy I am to see this exists! I saw this on a pride page, and freaked. Although I strictly consider myself female in both gender and sex, I recognize and support those who don't. People don't understand that there a people who are male, people who are female, and people who are every possibility in between. I understand. However, I can't pretend to understand some of the prejudice some people face because of their gender identity, but I want them to know, I support them. If you ever need to talk, message me. I'm always open, and always willing to help. Just remember; stay strong, and stay beautiful, my little lovelies.
Although there is one more important thing to remember, as always:

International Tiger Day + FeatureYesterday was International Tiger Day: an annual day of both celebration of the beauty of, and awareness of the plight of, tigers. Tiger populations around the globe have plummeted due to hunting, habitat loss and climate shifts. 100 years ago there were more than 100,000 tigers left in the wild. Today their numbers sit at a meagre 3,200. Three subspecies of tiger have already gone extinct. The remaining 6 subspecies are either endangered or critically endangered. In a decade, they may all be completely extinct from the wild. They've lost over 90% of their habitat, and the shifting climate is threatening to remove what little we've left them. If we don't mitigate the impacts of climate change now, the Sundarbans (their largest remaining stronghold) will be under water in 50 years. It's not a problem for our granchildren: many of us will live to see this.International Tiger Day + Feature1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

What art schools can and cannot doWhat art schools cannot do:What art schools can and cannot do2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Art school cannot take you from complete beginner to professional in a few years.
Art school cannot motivate you.
Art school cannot guarantee you a career.
Art school cannot make you enjoy drawing.
What a good art school can do:
Art school can take intermediate drawing skills and develop those into an industry-relevant portfolio.
Art school can introduce you to other artists who will help and encourage you.
Art school can give you advice on developing a portfolio, opportunities to show your work and introduce you to helpful books, blogs and websites.
Art school can give you invaluable experience in meeting deadlines, accepting critiques, and meeting a client's needs.
Basically, what good art schools do is take a gem and polish it. If you aren't passionate about drawing, if you've never drawn before in your life, if you just want to have fun in college or if you're not sure what you want to do with your life, art school will only massively waste your time and
