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).

CONTEST!CONTEST!3 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
Thing that PISS me off (From a Lesbian)Thing that PISS me off (From a Lesbian)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

This week is going to feature stunning animation, interviews with amazing people and a strong focus on Pre-Production within Animation. Also during the week I'll have facts about animation that you might not have known about!

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. ^_^

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

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

Attack on concentrationEver just have one of those days where you just can't focus because you'd rather be doing something else?Attack on concentration2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

Now, I’ll cut to the chase. …“living dinosaur” cryptids :iconfacepalmplz:.
I have been divided on the subject for awhile and I’ll admit to falling pray to its romantic (all be it unlikely) concept. What helped me brake free of its spellbinding hold, was when I leaned how religious nuts kept trying to impose the idea to make an argument about evolution being wrong. Now I look at the outdated “living dinosaur” cryptids and think, why do they have such pore anatomy and always end-up being naked . You’d think that with all the advancements in paleontology, eyewitnesses would report “land eagles” and “fuzzy alligators”, that validate our fossil finds, not report over-sized lizards, right. This kind of evidence, along with the fact that we have only found that birds are the only surviving dinosaurs, points out obvious hoaxes from anyone who knows better -_-. Now, even w

Hump-backed ornithomimids: I did it firstJust sayingHump-backed ornithomimids: I did it first2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Two years ago I created this little fellow, the descendant of the Australian coelurosaur Timimus.
Back then Timimus was believed to have been an ornithomimosaur and to show signs that it hibernated. So I assumed it would be possible for it to have a hump or similar structure to store fat during hibernation. I specifically mentioned that it didnīt have enlarged dorsal spines as that seemed just too weird for an ornithomimid to be true.
Less than a year later a new study debunked the hibernation theory, and it was also reclassified as a tyrannosauroid, making my hump-backed hibernating ostrich-mimic horribly outdated. Seriously, a lot of discoveries and studies make my already drawn dinosaurs more and more obsolete; some of the "crackpot theories" like herbivorous Balaur, ostrich-like Deltadromeus and carnivorous cer

But I think Wii U's Miiverse is such a cool feature, and adds what I think it a really fun new layer to things by allowing me to share my silly/random/stupid thoughts and observations with the world at any given point in the game. I guess that's essentially like a non-video Let's Play? I dunno. I wouldn't get to draw pictures or focus on what I'm trying to say that way though, and nobody else gets bogged down by my grinding or wandering. So I like this. ^_^
