New models tomorrow!Hi guys! I just wanted to give you all a quick rundown as to what was coming up. Since my lego order isn't here yet, I'm going to be posting a lego model I've been meaning to post for quite a while now. I also have a few small mini figures to throw in as well. This should tide you all over until next weekend. I just hope that package gets here soon. I have a back log of tons of new minifigure designs but I can't show them yet until this basted order gets here. I wonder how long it would take to get here if they strapped my order to a rocket?New models tomorrow!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

It's finally here! ^^Well everybody it's finally done. The epic dragon is 100% complete! I gotta say that this re-build was really a lot of fun! There were a few headaches along the way but what was the hardest thing was that it took a only three days to build but out of the whole 72 hours I only slept about 6 hours because I really wanted to get this done because my midterms are coming up and I didn't want to disappoint any of you who were looking forward to this. ^^ Before I move on, for those of you might ask that you want a step by step build on my dragon that isn't gonna happen. I jumped around so much the only real part I could help you with is the legs and the wings. A step by step is kinda outta the question, sorry. Moving on, the dragon wasn't the only thing on my to-do list for today. If you read my journal yesterday you'll remember that I said I'll be adding some new minifigures as well. Well I don't go back on my word. Ladies and gentlemen I give you two new soldier types. The Wolf aIt's finally here! ^^2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Too much to do, and so little time!Hi guys, just wanted to let you know I'm not dead. I've been really with school lately because I'm transffering to the main branch of my college for the fall and everything is a bit hectic at the moment. I really don't know when I'll be uploading anything big again. It might not be til the end of April when I'm done with finals. That doesn't mean I'm not working on anything though. Right now I'm actually trying to figure out how I can further improve the mars mission hypersonic dropship I have. I wanna give it a full blown makeover, and give it an up to date look. I hope this works out for me.Too much to do, and so little time!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Top Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring IllustratorsI wrote this thing. If you want to repost it on your blog or journal, please credit me with: Article by illustrator Kristina Gehrmann - www. mondhase.deTop Seven Mistakes Made by Aspiring Illustrators2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Selling yourself as a beginner
I found a prime example of this in a forum for artists seeking work. The thread title was „Starting-out artist looking for a chance",, and the thread told that the artist is „looking for a client for whom I may draw" and has „just graduated from art college".
We all were at this point once, but usually it takes too long to realize that „beginner" is the wrong mindset, even if you are one. Such statements sound like excuses and are guaranteed to weaken your position. Don't make excuses. Do not justify your work, and do not justify your prices. This is a tricky habit to acquire since we're not very confident by nature, but remember the image you wan
NEW MODEL: MX-81 Hypersonic Operations AircraftWell as promised here is one of my favorite lego models of all time. Introducing the MX-81 Hypersonic Operations Aircraft. This giant comes packing tons of play features that anyone who's a lego fan would love to have. This also makes one heck of a show piece as well, which is mostly the reason I haven't posted it here. It's been sitting in my display case since 2008 and really hasn't moved since. There was another reason I brought it of the display case as well, which is that like the Epic and Lightning dragons, I will be modifying and improving the MX-81 Hypersonic Operations Aircraft. There is actually quite a bit of things I can improve on this model. Most of its mechanical, but aesthetic wise its pretty much perfect. The links are below. Go check it out, and as always leave a comment! ^^NEW MODEL: MX-81 Hypersonic Operations Aircraft3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Dude, where's my Droid?It’s weird to know that we’ll see AI driven machines within the next two decades. Maybe even the humanoid automatons of science fiction.Dude, where's my Droid?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
It’s all being taken very seriously by certain parties. Some scientists have approached the UN and asked for the issue to be addressed in a more formal capacity, with a hope that laws against these machines taking certain roles will be put in place. Specifically “killer robots”. They don’t want to see a machine deciding when it’s right to pull the trigger.
That concern is perfectly understandable, but there’s another that is less touched on: are robots getting too cute?
Russia under the Cult of Putin?I really thought China was going to be the big problem for the 21st Century. They’re quietly taking over chunks of Africa and South America in order to leach them for resources, they’re trying to expand their reach in the Pacific by challenging claims over strategic islands (and when that fails, they BUILD new ones!) and their human rights record is smeared with the blood and filth of their own poor.Russia under the Cult of Putin?6 months ago in Personal More Like This
That one of the “old” superpowers would do something to upset the delicate balance that’s been in place since the end of the Cold War was unthinkable. After everything that happened in the 20th century and the blanket of fear and doubt it cast over the world, what kind of person would risk a return to the dark days?
Well, Putin gave the answer, there. I thought the chap was sinister, but ultimately harmless. A cool headed fellow that had as much pride in his nation as any other Russian. For a while last year I was even thinking; we really don’t need firs

These last words...I am so unprepared for life. So not ready for this. So gonna fail at so many things.These last words...7 months ago in Personal More Like This
But you know what? To hell with it. I'm never gonna be ready. Sure, I'm gonna fail a lot but I AM GONNA SURVIVE THIS. And in 4 months I'm gonna look at this and laugh.
PS: Picking out the fedoras I'm gonna have to leave behind is literally the hardest choice in my life. Especially since they don't seem to fit into the suitcase anyway.
PS 2: Muhahahha now they do. Should I happen to forget anything on my journey to California, at least I'll have my fedoras XD
PS 3: My only regret is not getting to scan my stacks of drawings that's been piling up.
A few words of summary (personal ramblings)So... It appears that I am less than a week away from my life taking a drastic turn. Ya know, moving to USA, suddenly changing the primary language I use, not to mention being totally on my own, half a globe away from the nearest friendly soul I know, yadda yadda. And starting studies at the Harvard of animation schools, yaaay. All these months people have been asking me "Aren't scared to go study in US on your own?" and I'd reply "Heck naw, ain't nobody got time for that. I got me some more important stuffs to do right now". It was technically true at that time. Yet, here we are now and I'm starting to think that this is about the time I start freaking out. Still got more important things to do, like packing up my stuff and figuring out how I'm gonna survive in this strange and hostile land of America on my own.A few words of summary (personal ramblings)7 months ago in Personal More Like This

The legends were true?!Geek culture has many myths and legends, ranging from fabled disks and cassettes containing unreleased sequels of beloved games to Easter Eggs found only within the code of early versions of certain titles.The legends were true?!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The most well known of these legends, the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, The Excalibur of Geek mythology, is that of the lost E.T. Cartridges – arguably the worst video game in history - buried somewhere in the New Mexico desert.
Now, they’ve been hiding unwanted stuff out in the deserts of America as far back as 1923. When filming finished on Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments, they worked out it’d be cheaper to just bury the set than dismantle it. This lent the E.T. Cart legend a little credibility, but even I was skeptical of anything ever being found….

Big update: MindBound and how I got hereHello guys!Big update: MindBound and how I got here1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I hope things are going well for everyone. It's been quite some time since I wrote a DA journal...maybe a year or something? Social networks usually get compromised when things happen in life, and I feel kinda bad about it. But I'm glad to finally establish a better balance in my art life, so that I can keep it going on DA.
First of all, thank you so much! I want to express my gratitude to everyone, on DA, plurk, and other sites, who have read and responded this webcomic. Honestly, I have never expected it to have much reaction, and I'm very happy that it's well received. It started out as an vague idea for my 2014 personal project, and I have been doubting a lot because of the weird theme and the fact that there are already lots of amazing comics on DA. But my conscience told me to do something for my cause so I tried anyway... you'll never know unless you try!
Every comment means a lot to me and boosts my motivation

RPGs need to find a new angle.I’ve been skimming through previews of Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt.RPGs need to find a new angle.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am so bored with the standard aesthetic of RPGs.
Swords, sorcery, European environments.
I’m sure that my weariness of these visuals stems from the fact I live in England, and that I grew up playing amid the ruins that scatter the borderlands of the North East. Ancient mounds, the remnants of Hadrian’s wall, fallen abbeys and frontier fortifications; because I see all that in REAL LIFE, I have no desire to wander digital versions.
Fable 2 and 3 are exceptions. Those are clearly fantasy versions of England, but they nod to different periods in history. 16th and 17th century rather than 11th and 12th. Flintlocks over chainmail. It adds something new.
I never bothered to finish Skyrim, but I’ve played Fallout 3 and New Vegas a dozen times, because the latter games are, to British eyes, a more exotic world. They are just as strange and foreign to me as a land l

It started in Northampton earlier in the year and has since spread to a number of other towns and cities around Fair Blighty.
The horrific Northampton Clown was the first. “Patient Zero”, if you will. He would simply….appear. Sometimes he would knock on doors and randomly offer to paint the window frames for the bemused resident (though he never seemed to carry paint or a brush). On another occasion, he emerged from a lake and handed out balloons.
Since this hellish creature first showed up, there have been a deluge of sightings, from right across the country, causing such a degree of distress that the authorities are issuing advice.
Remember RememberPeople across the pond often explain Britain's "Bonfire Night"/"Guy Fawkes Night" as the UK's version of their July 4th celebration.Remember Remember1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Penchant for detonating sparking, explody things aside, they're not at all similar.
One is about a nation celebrating its independence (or the defeat of alien invaders, depending how strong your grip is on reality) the other is basically a nation trolling terrorists, rubbing their faces in failure.
That the thwarting of the November 5th gunpowder plot is remembered is arguably one of the two reasons why the Brits are universally unafraid of terrorism (the second being that Fair Blighty has faced down the largest war machines the world has ever seen. A random yahoo that wants to blow himself up is an irritant by comparison). You leave the nations of the UK alone and they fight among themselves in a 600mile long drunken brawl. However, if an outside force so much as prods them with a stick in a manner that they find remotely unpleasant, they unify

I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when
Squirrels....of DEATH.As a rule, I run under the assumption that if word of an outbreak or pandemic suddenly hits the news, it's already too late. With people moving across the world at the rate they now do, an incident can be reported on one side of the planet and by the time the networks broadcast it, the bug is probably crawling in through your living room window.Squirrels....of DEATH.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, when I hear that a squirrel just outside Los Angeles has been found dead and racked with The Plague, I get a little freaked out.
That's THE Plague.
You know: the one that killed 200 million people in Europe BEFORE the advent of mass transportation.
Now, there are plague animals running wild all over the place, and the Black Death can actually be treated at the moment, but the bacterium has been at large for centuries, giving it plenty of time to turn real nasty. Our antibiotics get less effective by the day, with the bugs they're used on becoming more and more resistant to them through misu
