I want to thank a ton of you guys! So here is how I am going to thank 33 of you! (Yes there's a lot more then 33, but that's all I can do for now...)
- Give 25 of my watchers a 5 piece journal feature
- Give 5 of my watchers a 5 piece front page feature (my front page, for a month)
- Give 3 of my watchers 100
So what do you have to do to get one of these prizes? Just three simple things:

Miku Started, or should I say Start Your Engines?!I couldn't get a lot done because I started kinda late and I don't have the energy to stay up like a vampire today because I had to get up so early to return the rental truck and other things.. Anyways, I started on the head and quickly painted up some eye, eyebrow and eye lash textures. As you know its a first pass so they will probably be improved later when I really texture her.Miku Started, or should I say Start Your Engines?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not too much to say. Her face felt wide to me because of how far apart her eyes are. I guess its just the artists style for 2013. Also I'm trying to bring all the illustrations together to do the model. So the highlights are off the illustration in my miku announcement journal post while the eyes are inspired by the little nendroid and image behind the 3d model in the screen shot.

Site Update: More Like This on DeviationsFor those of you who are in beta, you probably know what I'm referring to, if you don't, please be informed here: http://wreckling.deviantart.com/journal/Site-Update-More-Like-This-on-Deviations-348746775Site Update: More Like This on Deviations2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Before I start talking about this new feature, here are the pro and con for this feature.
1.enables sharing, discover more from different artist and from the same artist
2.Help promote your artworks when displayed, help promote other artist
1.Distracting from the deviation that you are viewing
2.Displays non related deviation or not up to standard deviation
3.Some deviants find it like ads. They want to be able to pick who they want to have featured with their deviation.
4.Takes longer to load
After considering all these pros and cons, honestly, I think this feature has potential. Deviantart is going in a good direction although they might not be implementing it the right way. Deviantart is about community of artists, their works ,

Iron Man 3
Ben Kingsley is indeed playing the Mandarin in the film. During the Iron Man 3 sneak peek, he was shown sitting on a throne and had some menacing dialogue. The final part of the sneak peek showed him putting on his ten rings. I have no idea where the sneek peek is, but the moment I find it, i'll post an update here.
Director Shane Black confirms Iron Man 3 will definitely be inspired by Warren Ellis’ “Extremis” story arc, citing it only logical to go in this direction after dealing with an Alien invasion (in The Avengers). Footage shown during the panel featured scenes with an “Extremis”-like armor coming to him through sheer force o
Beware of Some Tutorials... This is just my opinion. I have to lead with that. Everyone is free to agree or disagree and disregard.Beware of Some Tutorials...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've had loads of people over the past few months ask me to create tutorials.
I never have. I'm not sure when I will, and I'll tell you why. Deviantart is filled to the brim with the most *awful* tutorials. And now that "Tutorials" have a priority category ( meaning they get to the front page every single time regardless of how many hits they get), some users have been creating tutorial after tutorial just to abuse that loop hole.
Thing is, I find a lot of these people who create the tutorials, have no business creating them in the first place o_o;. Some of them ( not all) aren't doing it to be helpful to the masses. Some of them are doing it to try to make one (to see if they can set it up, to see if they can make it interactive), or to see if they can use the exploit. Those people are not helping you.

North Campus Classrooms and Buildings
SCHOOL OF HEXING
Where? Northwest campus
The School of Hexing is one of the most dangerous buildings on campus, especially for those who haven’t been invited into the building by means of taking classes. It’s certainly very important that new students learn anti-hex spells, as a wrong turn could land a student in the infirmary—or worse.
The rooms of the Hexing building shift according to the fears of those who are in them. While the classrooms tend to behave themselves, wandering students would find unknown rooms warping to reflect their deepest fears. The only room that’s suggested to be safe after class hours is the Hexing building’s library.
The one good thing about the Hexing building is the number of

Adoptables, Buying AdoptablesBUYING AN ADOPTABLEAdoptables, Buying Adoptables3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Have an Adoptable Fund ready
Having some extra cash in your paypal or extra points in your dA helps you a lot in case you wish to purchase a limited hold-time adoptable. To avoid scamming, many adoptables artists ask for payment within a certain time frame (one or two days generally) and having a fund helps you when you see an adoptable you really want. Sometimes artists will let you put an adoptable on hold, but it's still better to ask first if the 'hold' option is available or not before claiming.
Find an Adoptable that you really like
Adoptables often come in sheets or maybe you follow a lot of adoptables artists and no one can deny that there's a lot of choice around dA. Since you finances are not unlimited, you might find yourself in the tight spot of choosing an adoptable over another. The point here is, you need to *choose*. Because asking both and then making one

Q of the Week:Difference of Steam/Diesel/CyberpunkWEEK 2Q of the Week:Difference of Steam/Diesel/Cyberpunk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every week I will be discussing a new question of the week about steampunk. This one is a day early (busy tomorrow).
Question: What is the difference between Steampunk, Dieselpunk, and Cyberpunk?
A: First, a small history lesson. Before the Victorian Era, James Watt came up with the designs for the steam engine that became prominent in the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution took place between the years 1750-1850 so before and during the Victorian Era (1837-1901). The Edwardian Era took place between the years 1901-1910 which then was followed by WWI, a time of peace, then WWII. The use of steam powered engines faded out during WWII due to the inefficiency of steam power.
Before WWII, experimentation on diesel fueled engines began, but there was not a high demand for it until after WWII. Petroleum usage had risen, so people were looking for an alternative to petroleum. Congrats, your minute history course is complete.
So what’s the diff
