Entralink exploredI really like White Forest, I like how the pokemon change based on what trainers you've brought. It made me think. This is kinda like being the mayor of the town and deciding who lives. In that regard, it's also kinda like animal crossing. It's a good use of the features but not implemented in the best way. The mapping is really grid-like and boring, the viewpoint is way too zoomed out, and there's not enough buildings or rewards. There is so much more they could do with it!
They really could do some kind of building mechanics with it...(I love stuff like that)
For example, you could have a list of buildings you can build. You could build a small pokemon center, and invite a nurse joy along to it. Or maybe you could build your own (non-league) gym! You could then have someone run the gym with a team you select. You could set up the gym puzzle like the underground traps in DPP. You should be able to invite trainers from all over the region to join too, and then when a friend visits they
Amazing design: Remoraid Octillery Mantyke MantineWarning: long article ahead.Amazing design: Remoraid Octillery Mantyke Mantine4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Remoraid is a small blue fish pokemon. It's entire body is made to mimic a handgun, complete with a trigger, butt of a gun, hammer, and a gun's front sight. The inspiration is due to it's ability to shoot jets of water from it's mouth, including a variety of beam-based moves.
Although mostly based on a remora, a pure saltwater fish, it can be found in a variety of freshwater locations throughout johto due to the lack of water types at the time (same as chinchou).
This is explained in the games by it swimming down to the sea when ready to evolve. It's also partly based on an archer fish (it's ability to shoot down bugs out of the air) which would partly explain this.
Upon it's evolution to Octillery, Remoraid changes drastically, which has often stumped many fans. The reason for this is due to the similarity between a tank's tracks and an octopus' tentacles, and a turret and an octopus' snout. Remoraid essentially goes from gun to tank. This is proven by it'

Here's my usual (ang getting increasingly late) report about the cons we attend!
We went as a Disney group last Toycon! And I just realized we don't have a decent complete group shot. That's okay I guess because it's definitely not the last time we'll be wearing the costumes, and we all had things we wanted to improve. We have a habit of doing that with new cosplays wear them to a con and observe pictures from it after to see what looked wrong or felt uncomfortable about the costumes or wigs or makeup. It's helpful! Some of our friends were also unable to join us for Toycon so we'll definitely be doing this again.
Most of the photos are from my camera but I borrowed some from friends and albums we were tagged in.
LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS-
So we saw this store, and we needed to take a photo in front of it for obvious reasons So there's Dom :iconweakman: as Captain Li Shang, myself :iconbehindinfinity: as Ping, and Bok as Ling from
Da fuq - Gen VIGuys. Come on. Shut up.Da fuq - Gen VI3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I really don't see why people are being so butthurt about the new generation. I think that the starters/legendaries are miles better than most of what we were given in Generation 5. They complain that they don't look enough like Generation 1, 2, and 3; but if they did, it wouldn't be diverse enough -__-. I honestly think that they look really nice and they're fun designs. The legendaries look really interesting too.
Then the fact that they're finally using 3D models is SO AWESOME. I mean, come on. ITS 3DS!! Do you really think they were going to continue with pixel base stuff for forever? No.
Then we have those people saying that Pokemon stopped at GBA. Obviously not. Pokemon still exists. And the games are still fun. They might not be better than the predecessors, I agree, but they're still Pokemon and they're still fun. I happen to have high hopes for this generation! And before we have more information I think you should be optimistic and expect the best.
How do I start as an Illustrator - QA responseHey guys.How do I start as an Illustrator - QA response1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I'm gonna be responding about the rant I put about a week ago.
So the one that won the most votes was "How do I start as an illustrator" next to "How do I know what to charge $$$". I know there's a lot of struggle going on with the "money" thing because it's a big issue when you are starting to set yourself into this abstract scale of valuing your work. Besides that professionals would mostly avoid this question since maybe it's sensitive or they're just secretive about how much they charge (for whatever reason). I might take on that one next week because of how important it is.
First of all.
I want to do a statement. I am not a big shot in the industry or whatever. I don't consider myself as someone that has that much experience. I'm actually someone who's just recently breaking in. Just wanted to make clear that the fact that I'm doing a "How do I start as an illustrator" journal doesn't turn me into Mr. Knowitall. It's just my perspective and how do I think it is, b

Since Valentines day is around the corner, I thought it would be an excellent idea to get some romance flowing.
And since one of my favorite things in the WORLD is OC couples, how can I avoid such an opportunity?:iconchuuplz:
This is what you'll need to do:
Pick any of my Zelda OCs (I will make some lists) and draw them in a romantic (or sexual :iconstudmuffinplz way.
You must pair them with another one of my ocs, OR one of your own!
If you really don't want to draw a couple, there is an alternate submission. You can draw one of my Zelda OCs all cutesy for Valentines. ^^ I'll be sharing with you some hints on couples that make me squeal, but depending on how you draw my OCs, the hints may not even matter. These hints can help those who don't see a pairing within my OCs or have no OCs of their own.^^ OR if you just pref

If you’re 25+ and get anxious seeing really young people make great art; please don’t.
Just because they’re 13-16 doesn’t make you any less successful as an artist.
Remember: today it’s so much easier to start taking commissions, find tutorials and references,lots of art youtube channels, paypal, free digital art software, cheaper drawing tablets, art livestreaming, online communities willing to give feedback etc…
When I was 13 I didn’t even know how to browse the web - I wasn’t yet fluent in english.
I didn’t know what “deviantart” was
nor did I not know about “tutorials” or “commissions”.

Development and Experience: ConformityThis got looooong... but being something important to me, I feel you guys should take some time and read it, I wrote it out for you.Development and Experience: Conformity4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So go ahead, help me entertain the delusion that I'm significant.
So this is an issue I understand many of you struggle with, and that is discouragement. It comes from many sources, a lot of them external, but the strongest source comes from within.
As young artists the worst thing I can advise you to do would be to lock yourself into a mode of working. I've expressed this in an earlier journal about 'Sugi-Style' and how defining yourself by a style not only limits how others see you, but how you see yourself. There is SOOOO much out there, yes even beyond Anime, and I find it disturbing to see how young many of you are and how much pressure your place upon yourselves to mimic the style of someone else. As a one whose experimented with many 'styles' I can say it's an incredible practice if you want to be diverse.

Contest 16 - Redesign Zero SuitContest 16 - Redesign Zero Suit1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And the winners are...
What the judges were saying: We really enjoyed Phobos-Romulus's simple but functional Zerio Suit design! The details like the cooling system and oxygen inlet really show how this suit would work within the Varia suit. We also enjoyed the increase in Samus' muscle mass and Justin Bailey colors. Amazing work!
What the judges were saying: The HR Giger vibe to this version of the zero suit by: Omegachaino struck us different yet plausible given the original Metroid's inspiration came from Alien. The complexity and armoring makes sense to protect a more vulnerable Samus within the Varia suit. Also, gotta love that hairstyle!
So you wanna be an artist?Hello fellow deviants. So, looking to be a better artist? Wanna improve? Well I got some tips for you. Drawing is fairly easy, really. It just takes greater skill to draw something good. It takes time and patience. Lots of practice will help you greatly! I've been drawing since 4 years old. 17 years later, here I am continuing to draw because I have a passion for art. I've always loved art. If you wanna be an artist, you gotta have that passion, that need to draw. Remember now that it takes lots of time and patience. Lots of studying will help. It's all skill. If you are not proud of what you drew, don't bring yourself down. Just look at the mistakes and tell to yourself, how can I improve? Practice, practice, practice. It makes better. Look around for inspiration, it's everywhere. I remember coming upon my favorite artists' works and thinking, I'll never be that good. But don't let that sadden you. Just work hard, put a lot of effort into your drawings. If you don't have patience, whySo you wanna be an artist?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

What makes me laugh about fan 'games'Or more so the people that make most of them. On deviantART I follow progress on a lot of fan games. But in truth the people that lead them don't know the first thing about game development, bar a few. About the only "game developers" I respect on dA are Neo-DragonCP, Hydrargirium, Heavy-Metal-Lover, and iametrine. There's a few up and coming developers who are actually doing great too such as RianSky and Elaynii and people so dedicated such as AtomicReactor. No offence to any other game leaders, but anyone else I've seen has never striked me as a developer. All that I see these days are screen mock-ups and promises. Promises about "new regions, new pokemon, new features, amazing battles, swift characters, flawless GUI's", but the thing is, the people who make these things don't know what to do when it comes to actually making them happen in a game.
