A defense for Princess CelestiaNOTE: This is not intended to attack anyone. Please refrain from flaming other people for having different opinions.A defense for Princess Celestia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my vision, Princess Celestia is apparently the most hated/disliked/disregarded pony character among the good guys in MLP:FIM. And she also receives a mass amount of false characterization and crude joking from the community.
I find it very difficult to search for her on YouTube, Deviantart, EQD, Google images, ponibooru, without stumbling upon several videos/deviations of Celestia being trollish, tyrannical, cruel, sexual deviant or just an all-out depraved monster. Of all the cartoon characters i've seen so far, i've never seen one being so fanonically butchered as Celestia is.
Here are some arguments that gave origin to all the "Celestia abuse"
She sent Luna to the moon
Now i think i understand why people are so strongly focused on this argument; specially because they think it was too much of a "cruel" fate

PE Prose Basics: Pacing ( and Show vs. Tell)Hello, everyone! As you all know, this week over at projecteducate is Prose Basics. We're here to help all you prose writers (whether flash fiction, short stories, or novels) get better at your craft with some basic tips for growth. Today, I'm going to be talking about something you've probably heard about again and again: pacing.PE Prose Basics: Pacing ( and Show vs. Tell)1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
What is Pacing?
No, it's not what you do when you're stuck on a scene and need to get up and stretch those leg muscles to get your writing juices flowing. It's actually a very important ability that writers have to control the speed their story is read. You as the author get to manipulate the reader in a way and make the speed of the story match the scene. What better way to drop the reader right into the moment? But, pacing also holds the ability to make or break your story and keep or lose your reader's interest. This is why it's so important in writing.

An Introduction to Medieval ManuscriptsEarly Christian and Byzantine ManuscriptsAn Introduction to Medieval Manuscripts1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Before the book, there was the manuscript. I’m talking medieval manuscripts, those ancient tomes associated with dusty monasteries and devout prayers. In fact, most European medieval manuscripts were made for religious purposes, and the first known manuscripts, or codices, are early Christian. The codex was developed in the 4th to 6th centuries C.E. as a means to carry and read texts in an easier way. In ancient times, scrolls and tablets were the common way to go. With the coming of the evangelic Bible, other means were needed to carry the Christian message across the world. The codex was lighter than a tablet, and easier to read than a scroll. It was also made from parchment or vellum, which lasted much longer than papyrus, the material used for scrolls. There are scientific, philosophical and mythical texts written down in manuscripts. However, by far the most manuscripts of Medieval Europe contain texts from the
ARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art ChatroomARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art Chatroom3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many people has asked me about the rationale behind my nickname - Artgerm in many occasions. To me it is more than just a nick, it is actually my mission statement in my art journey, which I would like to see people get "infected" by my works and inspire them to create art. I've been drawing for the past 20 years, in which 16 years in digital medium. Art has already been part of my life long time ago - it is my passion, my profession and my life. Although majority of my time has been devoted to the commercial projects and my family and leave me very little time to impart my art knowledge to others outside of my studio, my mission statement has never and will never change.
As a result, I've decided to setup a deviantArt chatroom recently called Artgermination for all digital art discussions, which I put in a good amount of my time daily to interact with other dA members, sharing with them my journey in art and con

Hey guys - those blog posts on giant dinosaurs are still coming, but now they will be coming to my redesigned website ( www.skeletaldrawing.com ), as I'm incorporating my blog into the main site, rather than running it separately on Blogger. I'll cross-post for a while, but if you like to read them you should get in the habit of checking out the site instead.

105 Free Paper LinksHi, my dear dino-guys! While I'm planning some work, I came to my mind to report in this journal entry a precious list of my favorite papers (most of them from PLOS ONE) that might be of help or good thorough reading to people like me who simply can't stop learning about dinosaurs. Such very interesting documents, accompanied by beautiful HD pictures, and these aren't only new species-descriptions but also revisions, phylogenetic analysis and taphonomic observations.105 Free Paper Links1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Beyond the Extended Cut... I will reignite.And so the end creeped upon us. With the Extended Cut behind me I can finally say that I've seen the full extent of how BioWare wanted to end the Mass Effect trilogy... And I disliked it. Don't get me wrong, the Extended Cut is a vast improvement over the vanilla endings and I think that everyone should check it out - but it is still the same unfitting ending, it is still something taken out from another story and sewn onto Mass Effect's glistening skin, with it still kicking and screaming (yes, this is just a personal opinion and no, I am not bitter about that - I just dislike how it ended). The themes that made Mass Effect so great are still either nowhere to be found, or twisted around to present a vision I just cannot accept as something that belongs there. My fanface is itching, my writer sense tingling... Not the way I want to end one of the greatest sci-fi experiences of my nerdy little life.Beyond the Extended Cut...

2014 has the dinosaur games of your dreamsFor some reason my Journal about Primal Carnage has disappeared... I can´t remember deleting it...2014 has the dinosaur games of your dreams1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, due to the slow progress and the increasing number of bugs and class changes which the community disagrees with, I´ve lost interest in the game, for now. Maybe when they reveal what role their Acrocanthosaurus model plays (which is a really nice looking model) I´ll come back, but for now, I´ve got different games I can look forward to.
I already mentioned that I appreciate that the Primal Carnage developers at least met halfway with the accuracy-insisters and created a new feathered raptor skin, gave the Pteranodon a quadrupedal launch and made a short-faced, stubby-armed, fast-running Carnotaurus. Considering scientific accuracy likey wasn´t the first thing the devs had in mind when they wanted to make a military shooter between men and dinosaurs, I didn´t think any other dinosaur game would try to at least stay a little bit close

Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:

Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child
Dinosaur News #34New dinosaurs include new species of Mochlodon M. vorosi. There are also reportedly three other new iguanodontians, Huxleysaurus hollingtoniensis (formerly a species of Iguanodon), Darwinsaurus evolutionis, and new species of Mantellisaurus M. carpenteri, but no one seems to have the paper (at least not in digital form).Dinosaur News #342 years ago in Personal More Like This
A neonatal Talenkauen santacrucensis specimen, a new specimen of Mei long (miraculously also in a sleeping position), and the soaring cycle of Diomedea exulans are described. Evidence of South American stegosaurs is confirmed. Aphelocoma californica are found to react to their dead and Corvus moneduloides are found to use casual reasoning. Potential cellular and molecular mechanisms for the development of early feather types are suggested. The evolution of quadrupedality in different ornithischian groups is investigated. The backwards flight of trochilids is found to be quite efficient.

The mitochondrial genome of Ectopistes migratorius, the braincase of Alioramus altai, the water vapor conductance of Troodon formosus eggs, the history of African sphenisciforms, gut parasites in dinornithiforms, a new specimen of Austroraptor cabazai, and an ornithomimid bonebed are described. A detailed review of neural spine bifurcation in Morrison sauropods is published. Cacatua goffiniana are documented exhibiting self control. The validity of currently interpreted feather colors of fossil dinosaurs is disputed. All non-euornithine avialan specimens (including new Sapeornis, confuciusornithid, and enantiornithine specimens) that preserve leg and foot feathering are found to have pennaceous feathers on their hind limbs. Jeholornis and enantiornithines are found to have had only one functioni

There are things that I like about interacting with others and also a great deal of things that I absolutely hate - like having to bite my tongue for the sake of being polite. If I can't tell someone that they're doing something that's fucking pissing me off without some weird disproportionate reaction, I can at least let it out here so that it doesn't fester into a mental illness. I meditate, yeah, but it takes years of training to be able to do the Vulcan thing and express my emotions internally. That, and THAT'S FUCKING UNNATURAL.
