Foo!? Where are you?! Oh, dang you're fast! Thanks for that save back there, but what the heck was up with that rex of a Pokemon?!
I... I’m not really sure what his problem is, but this jungle’s always been pretty harsh. But enough about that. We need to find where all of the villagers scattered off to. I’m pretty certain we’re actually in the middle of an island, with all this water around us no matter where we go...
Island?! But we're not in the middle of an ocean... are we?
No, it’s not like that. I think we’re next to a giant pond. Rather, in the middle of it. I know Prismatic Jungle has one of those, so I think that’s where we might be. It’s colorful enough for that, anyway. My grandfather did more traveling than I ever have... he would know for sure. Hmm, well, we

All Your YesterdaysThanks to :iconT-PEKC: I became aware of the newest (and if you want free) E-book of Irregular Books.All Your Yesterdays2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's the second volume of All Yesterdays, the book (written and illustrated by the brilliant C.M. Kosemen, John Conway and Darren Naish) which produced new impulses for Paleoart, and especially gives us a free ticket for speculation on high level.
The new book is a documentation of what happend after the publication of Vol. 1.
Memo Kosemen initiates the All Yesterdays contest and (apparently) everyone who has read the book beginn to produce All Yesterdays themed artwork, from well known paleoartists to part time paleo-amateurs. For a few weeks Deviant-art boiled over because of the sheer number of entries. Every day I saw more beautiful/strange/interesting artwork. We saw the first homosexual dinosaur couple, spiderwebs between the horns of chasmosaurs and pachycephalosaurs which try to look like rocks (to count just three prominent cases).

" DO NOT URINATE IN THE ELEVATOR
- Urinate before leaving home.
- If you're coming back home, please kindly wait just a few more seconds until you are out, it will not take so long.

The best of all is that note clearly indicates who this was written TO because of the language our president used on it, so we all can know who did it, since only one of our neighborings speaks that dialect
The point is (in my opinion): Does an elevator really take that long that you can't wait a LITTLE bit more??? :iconwhywouldyoudothatplz: lol it seems some people get exasperated so easy. Dunno why but I totally imagine our president also putting chairs for the

1. “Homosexuality is a sin and there is no place in heaven for gays”
I don’t fucking care. You “Religion” does not run my life and my afterlife is MY concern. You can disagree with my decision to be with a person of the same sex but you can in no way apply YOUR religion to my life. PLUS I don’t want to be in your heaven anyway.
2. “Homosexuality will lead to bestiality”
This is just fucking stupid. My wife is in no way anything near a dog or goat. The fact that people say this just shows how ignorant they really are. This statement relates to the fact that you believe that one of the people in the marriage is not a person… has not consented, and is below normal human standards.
3. “Homosexuals are pedophiles”
Also fucking stupid. Homosexuals are no more likely than straight people to be pedophiles. If I wanted to be a pedophile I would just join the clergy and have all the protection I n

We'll probably want to give everyone a few days of enjoying Pokemon X and Y and getting up to date with information before finalising applications. That way you'll be able to participate in the first mission, finalise your apps, and it gives us a little more time to prepare art assets for this groups shift to Super.
Things such as Guild leader profiles and icons are also in the works for journal missions. There's still a lot to be done for the overall presentation of the group. I appreciate everybody's patience and I'm really happy to see how supportive the community has been so far! You guys are making a lot of really cool stuff already.
I'll have the official Guild Registration Apps finished and ready soon, along with information on starting accessories and the like, which I know a lot of members have been holding out for. Only 4 more days to go!
CONTEST!CONTEST!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I love my watchers, but it is becoming harder to thank each individual person for helping me out. So, I've decided to hold a contest, as a way of saying thanks. It's not much, but I figure it's a small way of giving back to the people who have supported me and helped me get to where I am today.
The theme is very simple. Create a piece of artwork involving any of my birds. It can be one of them, two of them, all of them, one of them and one of yours together, anything. It can also be any medium. Drawing, photo-manipulation, poetry, crafts, anything! If you create something that absolutely blows me away or that I can't help but love, I may be tempted to buy it. If you're not sure whether or not your idea qualifies, you can note me.
Here are some reference pictures of my birds, and a bit of info that may be helpful about each. The more inventive you are with this, t

Exciting day alreadyFinally went to Social Security to change my name with them this morning. Painless trip, I might add. I don't know why I always think it's going to be a nightmare in there.

In other news, as I was walking home I passed two guys sitting on their stoop talking to each other. Just as I walked by, I got whistled at for the first time. I can see how that would become annoying and unwanted very quickly. Today though, I was okay with it. Looking at this positively, it means I don't just pass; I'm apparently hot. I'll take that.
In the future, that kind of thing will probably be met with eye-rolling and faster walking. Just this once though, I feel pretty good.
And I wish a wonderful day to you as well. ^_^
CEA Blog: Mature ContentHey guys, today I want to talk about Mature Content on deviantART and hopefully clear up some misconceptions that exist around it.

How the mature content filter works
All members over the age of 18 can choose to enable or disable the mature content filter to suit their needs. All members with a registered date of birth under the age of 18 have the mature content filter locked on and can not disable it. All logged out visitors have the mature content filter enabled and can not disable it.
The mature content filter is split in to two types, strict and warning. The strict filter is completely voluntary and prevents any deviant with the mature content filter on from accessing the work. The general or warning filter is the standard mature content tag and will remove the image from immediate view when browsing and place an warning page on the devi
OZO's cancellationHeya.OZO's cancellation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Specially heya for all people who were reading Odd Zoroark Out and are expecting the next pages. However I have some unfortunate to tell you regarding that.
The comic is now cancelled.
Before anything, I'm really sorry. But things turned the table real bad and I cannot no longer hold the task. But I own you an explanation so lemme tell my reasons:
First....I don't like the story anymore. I lost motivation. I don't feel happy about it anymore. I mean it was just...about a dumb zoroark that for some reason ends up in Random Doom universe like a dumb mary sue story.
Other reason, many people took me by granted. Reading it just because I made free fanservice of Random Doom. I know I picked a popular fancomic to base on and seriously, I fully regretted that. I feel like very few gave me actual credit and the majority even forgot I was the one making the fancomic. I bet if I continued the comic as the next pages involved Veruka and Vincent, most people will totally squeal for t

I tend to watch something when I eat lunch as a little break from drawing/writing. Not really in the middle of anything at the moment, I decide to start something new. I'm like "Let me check out the first episode of this 'Attack on Titan' no one will shut up about? I mean, maybe it's okay."
And then I watched six episodes, using every ounce of willpower I had to walk away from it where I was. Damn it. XD
I'm still thinking about it. I still want to be watching it. But I get the feeling I could lose my whole day waiting for a good stopping point (or finish what's available and have no choice but to wait to keep going). And if you're familiar with the kind of story Attack on Titan is, and imagine I'm trying to work on a story like Rain, you can see where I might be a little disoriented. XD
