I've been playing this AC4 for a while and I'm loving it
Ubisoft did an amazing work and game looks awesome.
I'm waiting for this new program called Archive_X to be updated to support AC4.
In meantime I'm trying to extract it with Ninja ripper but it won't be as good as ones from Archive_X.
So please be patient As soon as I get him I'll convert him for XNALara
I'm pretty busy with faculty and exams so I don't release new models often :\
BTW I'm rigging Charles Lee atm and he's half finished so expect him as well.
For AC4 I'm planing to convert Edward first than Anne Bonny
Thanks for support

Detective Inspector Lestrade entered the dark cottage and spied the distraught man Frank Lloyd sitting on his sofa by candle light. A uniformed Officer passed by and assured Lestrade that they would have the power on in an instant. Lestrade then approached the man and asked for his story.
“My wife is away on a business trip, so I'm here alone for the week,' Lloyd said. 'I was watching an old movie when the lights suddenly went out. Just then, I heard some strange noises coming from the bedroom. I got up to investigate when all of a sudden someone came flying out of the bedroom in such a rush that they knocked me down. Although I did not get a look at the offender, I did hear them open the front door and run out.. At this point, I crawled over to my desk and picked up my phone to call you people. When I got off the phone I lit some candles and checked the bedroom, that’s when I saw that my wife's diamond r

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

World Building Part 1 - The SetupBefore we get into the details of building a world, its a good idea to start a document that will house all of the information about your world. You can start this document with placeholders and fill in the information as you figure it out. Your document should include the following sections:World Building Part 1 - The Setup3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Planets - where you can list the planets in your world if there is more than one, moons, suns, and what the planet would look like from the sky (any rings, color etc...). You can then go into the continents and cities.
Species - where you list all the species of all the planets. This section will give what each species characteristics are from life spans to looks to development, abilities even reproduction if you want to delve that far. You also might want to mention the culture, religion, etc.. of the species here as well.
Characters - where you keep all the profiles of all your characters. Not only that, you can add their history, story lines, plot li

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!
Poses, composition and perspective
Expressions and emotions
Colour theory, selection and mixing VS light

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

He took the case and started his investigation. The woman seemed to have come for an early walk, too. Seeing her handbag lying nearby, Lal ruffled through it and found what he wanted - her identity card. Her name was Lakshmi, and her house was about a ten minute drive away. Her number was also written on her card. Lal phoned the given number.
"Is this Lakshmi's residence?"
"Yes. And I am her husband. What do you want?"

Fight terror with humour.I’m selective over what I go to the cinema to see. If I don’t think a movie needs to be seen on a big screen, I’ll happily wait for the DVD, seeing as they cost about the same as a movie ticket these days.Fight terror with humour.2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Comedy films are the best example of this practice. I’ll see them eventually, but they almost never tempt me into a cinema viewing.
The Interview however, I may go to see twice. I don’t have any kind of inside knowledge about how funny it will be, nor does the known plot scream “must see!”. I’m simply going to make a point of catching it at the flicks out of pure spite toward the hacking group who are making terror threats over it.
The Interview is about a celebrity journalist and his producer, who land an interview with the leader of North Korea. The CIA recruit the duo and charge them with the task of assassinating him.
The whole thing smells a bit like the Cold War classic Spies Like Us. The DPRK, however, isn

-COMMENT ON THE PICTURE HE HATES
-flame on the person who drew/used a base for the picture
-want it to go away
now let us analyze what's wrong with this...oh, I see, EVERYTHING! here is why...
-If you hate a picture, just leave the page, how hard is that?
-if you hate the picture, DON'T COMMENT
-Don't hate the person who draws/ used a base with the picture, that is just stupid
- You do not own dA, and if this person owns the character or doesn't own the character but doesn't claim them as theirs, the picture should not be removed

I monitor content on DA via “browse” as it changes regularly and has work that the community thinks to be high quality. It’s generally where I spot artists whose material I want to see more of. Over the past few days, though, after posting a response to DA inexplicably choosing the letter “Z” to be their logo, people mentioned that the “Super Pretentious” cartoon had surpassed DA’s own “Boldly” journal on the “What’s Hot” list. Thinking that to be funny as hell, I switched to “What’s Hot” t

Ever since I posted Wolf Link and Midna I've been getting an influx of messages asking me to teach, reveal my secrets, take people under my wing, and so on. The sad thing is I can't spend all that much time one on one with everybody asking me to teach them. So I've decided to put together this massive block of text, relating some of my personal experience in plush making and listing off all my resources at the bottom. This will cover the very basics of plush and pattern making so if you are completely new to plush making this is for you, if you're not and you're just looking for resources skip to the bottom. I hope this will be helpful to someone!
First off, the reality. The big secret. The key to becoming a good plush artist is...

One thing I've noticed with a lot of the messages I got were that a lot of people were scared of screwing up.
