GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go OnGODZILLA (2014) has hit theaters, and for months (years for most Godzilla fans), potential audiences have been anticipating a return to form for the Lizard King - a film that will revisit the themes of the 1954 original and deliver a brooding, apocalyptic story of destruction and doom.GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go On1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, what we got could best be described as a sequel to THE TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA (1975).
Trust me, I wouldn't begin a review with a hyperbolic, attention-grabbing statement like that without explaining it. For the moment, let us turn back the clock and toss out a quick recap of the film's plot. Obviously, this review will contain a metric crapload of SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, but you'll complain anyway, so let's get on with this.
After a mysterious event in 1954 regarding the Castle Bravo nuclear test and an unknown giant organism, the story jumps to 1999, where two scientists, Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Graham (Sally Hawkins) are investigating a massive underground tomb in the

70's mayhem art contest! Ends April 370's mayhem art contest! Ends April 33 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I mentioned, there is a contest for the 7th character...because I was too lazy to draw one..
Anyway, I will give you a description of what the character will mainly look like, and you can add on!
7th character: A smart, but perky girl with some cool glasses, perferably brown hair. A skirt of some sort, and make her look like from the 70's atleast! You are given lots of freedom with this, so go crazy!!
Villian: Guy or girl..just do whatever you think will be cool and funky! This is entirely up to you!
Sidekick pet companion (good or evil side): something outrageous, but it has to be a land mammal . Be creative! The animal has to have some sort of unusual accessory, just for kicks.
Note: you do not have to do all of these, but it will give you more of a chance to be picked.
Anyone can enter. All mediums welcome. Any sty

These feelings, they're not normal.
I've been aware of this for a while.
I tried to ignore them.
I tried, desperately.
I told myself I'd be better off.
But I just can't take it any longer.
My feelings for you, are much larger that I originally planned.
Much, much larger, than I ever even thought possible.
When I told you I wanted to be there for you, as a friend,
I think I really meant, that I want to be there for you, as much much more.
I want to wake up in the morning to a text message from you, every day.
I want to crawl out of bed thinking about you.
I want to sit on the couch and be lazy with you.
I want to cook for you, or with you.
I want to see you smile when I tell you about my day.
I want to smile when I see you getting sleepy.
And I want to lay next to you and drift into sleep.
But I'd give up all these hopes..
To make you feel the same way.
The clearer it becomes to me, just how much I love you.
The clearer is becomes to me, that you don
Loving and Hating your own work...Being creative, we all hit bouts of loving some work and either growing to dislike it, or even hate it. This isn't ALWAYS the case, but having the objectivity to start disliking our work is what helps us grow and want to be better. But here's the kicker, when you're trying to create something bigger than a single piece of art, how do you keep interested in a project?Loving and Hating your own work...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyone who's been following me for a while knows I'm quickly becoming the king of false starts. Julie Rush, Battlefield Babysitter, Sherlock Fox, and most recently Space Time Fabuloso are all projects I intended to run with and have a blast with, but soon after starting and even getting SOME production going on them I fall out of love with them and feel if I don't love it, no one else will and if I don't love it why would I continue to do it.
Yet I see tons of folks who have their O.C.'s or even personal comics (of any quality) and they stick with them for yeeeeeears. I can barely get a few months into a project before I b

WHY ARE YOU ALL GIVING A SHIT ABOUT FAN-CHARACTERS AND FAN-FICTIONS?!
SURE, people make them, and SURE they're fun to do
THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GO ANYWHERE

SORRY PEOPLE, BUT IT'S THE TRUTH
Trully, anyone who wastes they're time doing such idiotic things such trying to fix them, they're only wasting time they could've actually used to do something USEFUL with their lives, but no, instead they go and ruin everyone's fun time :U
In my eyes, fan-characters and fan-fictions are made for the sole purpose of having FUN with something you LOVE. AND SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. UNLESS
Open for 1-3 fursuit commissionsI just had a customer cancel due to needing the money to repair their roof, the refund came at a bad time for me and thus I am needing to replace the money refunded.Open for 1-3 fursuit commissions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I will be taking just enough work to replace this customer on my list, be it one fullsuit, one quadsuit, a halfsuit and a head or three heads, so on and so forth.
Quotes are open from now to Sunday.
EDIT: I may close quotes sooner than Sunday ... I mean... I already have 2 head-only designs I really want to do, soooo if I get one more head only I'd really like to make and all three can commit then I will close up quotes early so I can get back to focusing on working.

The Legend of Zelda: The Edge and The LightHello everyone! Years ago, I started drawing a 'Legend of Zelda' fanfiction that I posted here, but due to personal issues, I completely had to stop drawing it and put it aside. I'll rather not go into my reasons for falling off the face of the earth, but I was always sad I couldn't finish that story, and a lot of fans of it were sad too. But now it's back, and completed, and you can buy this book in print! But in a slightly different format to traditional comics...The Legend of Zelda: The Edge and The Light3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This fanfic, called "The Legend of Zelda: The Edge an The Light", is a comics-prose-music story - something that combines all three of these things. Working in a mix of prose and comics makes me work faster, by giving the story the kind of depth that only prose can give, while getting to draw comics of the characters too. All-in-all, it works very well, and I'm happy to share this experience with everyone on DeviantArt.

theres a thing called the bystander effect
your neutrality and willful ignorance to attempt to avoid and downplay the issue or play up the "facts" to justify literal race driven murder is only adding to and perpetuating the violence
racism doesnt necessarily only exist in violent acts like michael brown's murder and so many others. racism exists in micro-aggressions as well, it exists in how we think and how we act and in stereotypes. i understand a lot of us probably grew up with this shit with parents and other relatives, hell i grew up with a lot of racist, ableist, homophobic and transphobic shit from my surroundings growing up in the south. but you gotta

this is me following the example of some very brave users commenting on the recent changes of the site. Let me start off by saying that this journal is not supposed to be a hate speech, it is supposed to reveal concern based on observations I've made over the past weeks.
As we all know, presenting unannounced change to a huge crowd of people is difficult. Opinions will be all over the place, criticism will be voiced among all kinds of feedback, be it positive or negative or even neutral.
To me, people's reactions to the changes are not only because change is uncomfortable at first or because the new design doesn't meet with their personal taste. Not this time.
Their reaction is a valid criticism, precisely pointing out how the changes of the community affects its users in a negative way.

I wanted to personally say thank you to everyone that's here.
From my closest friends, to many acquaintances, to any watchers, and lurkers, and idols or inspirations, and every other person in between,
I want to say thank you to every solitary one of you for what you've done for me in my life.
I want to thank my best friends for being there to talk to in any crazy times that have come our way good or bad, as well as thank you for always being open in sharing things back with me, and being the awesome people you are
I want to thank all my watchers, new and old, and really just ANY one that's ran across my artwork before and had gotten a smile or a laugh out of what I do. In the past year or so a handful of you have actually messaged me saying I'm an inspiration to you in some way, and I'm still flabbergasted anytime that it's happened.

It was officially announced that there will be a BRAND NEW Sailormoon Anime in Summer 2013! The original Japanese VAs for Moon and Tuxy seem to be reprising their roles (based on the conversation in the event). We don't have much more detail, a letter from Naoko said she hopes we like the new series and she's happy to be making it. She said she's overwhelmed at the support the series still has and it makes her happy. She didn't think she could do something new but now she's happy she can bring them back!
They said the audience is intended to be the original fans of the show. It will be like a "powered up" of the original story, aimed at the good girls (and boys!) who grew up with the show. TOEI is doing it.
There was something in the announcement about it being released worldwide but we don't know the details. We do not know what this means as far as a possible English dub/sub. We don't yet know when/how this will reach a US market.

I Don't Tolerate Art ThievesI tolerate my fans, watchers or people who favs, collects artworks for inspirations, make an adaptation, draw something similar or close resemble to my style or work; but taking my work or even other good artists' work directly and slapping it into your DevART gallery OR even from Tumblr, Reddit, CGHub or whatever art gallery site, blog and shit, without permission, violating my copyright and signature stamp, and not even acknowledging the origin, source or rightful owner of the work is down right disgusting.I Don't Tolerate Art Thieves3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You make me lose my respect to you as either a fan, an aspiring artist or an online friend. I trust all my watchers and fans and new visitors, and I don't expect any of you to be perfect, but there are boundaries and stealing other people's hard work and effort is one of them.
Thank you to a noted few who report to me about the art theft. You are awesome, and I love you.

I Know that it is common knowledge that the art-world generally regards deviantart as a beckon of professionalism and respectability. To see something like this while browsing for serious prospective employees on another busy work sunday on a serious talent search site that is totally serious business guys is totally going to get you banned from the art world and loose you all the jobz you would have gotten that day! This is an outrageous prank! This is not what DA is about!
Come on guys, perspective.
If your gallery is so important to your life and career that you can not stand to have even one of your precious thumbnails momentarily obscured lest every employer decide that cats are no longer the "in" thing this year and black list you from the industry, you probably shouldn't be on DA. Yes, some people get a lot of traffic from DA, but lets be honest, this is not an appropriate site in which to host any kind of serious portfolio. Fine,
