I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'
Disney closes LucasArtsF**k you, Disney. F**k you.Disney closes LucasArts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are not angered by this news, you're obviously a very young gamer and probably (rightly) see LucasArts as nothing more than a mediocre-Star-Wars-title-discharging-sewer-pipe.
Disney bought LucasFilm because of the Star Wars cash-cow, but the number of classic IPs produced by LucasArts throughout the 90s makes the descision to close it rather than attempt to return to the studio to its glory days pretty staggering.
I actually see way more potential in LucasArts IPs than Star Wars.....but then, so would anyone with even the most stunted of creative minds.
Disney obviously still own all the properties, but the LucasArts brand is gone, and it's the end of an era, even if they start picking at the corpse for ideas to ruin.

About the Username Change and the Imeji CheinjiI never believed that name change would exist due to many valid reasons, but yet, they made it. Honestly, I've been wanting to change my name since long time. I'm in no ties or any desire with "Pearl" in any way which I named it when I was quite young. Also that name makes me sick sometimes- so a new name change is going to be a great, refreshing start.About the Username Change and the Imeji Cheinji3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, yes I do plan to change name yet my icon will remain not changed to keep people to recognize me. And here I want to write a journal about being really careful, be smart and think twice if we decide to change name: to not cause that kind of trend where "Oh I got bored with that name, lemme change onto another" and making a'la Japan's trend of changes known as imeji cheinji.
Firstly, try to imagine, if there is artist (or active watcher, popular artist, active friend or even troller which you dislike etc.) which you admire is known under Crystallox2* (and you probably will notice how many people also call that person as "Crys"
Change for the sake of change.Well…..that was immature drivel.Change for the sake of change.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don’t know a huge amount about the “New 52” take on the DC universe (I stopped paying attention to DC’s output when they changed their logo to look like a half-unwrapped Acme magnet) but if the Justice League: War animation is any kind of summary, I’m glad I’ve not wasted my time.
Batman now seems to think it’s impolite if he doesn’t tell everyone who he is, Wonder Woman has taken to talking like a really, really bad Shakespearean actor and Superman is a dick.
Ignoring the animation’s terrible narrative, what struck me like a rancid kipper in the face was how god-awful the character designs were. In this instance; particularly Darkseid’s. Yeah, he wore a bucket on his head in the past, but it worked! It added to his menace as a laser-firing brick of doom. You took one look at him and you knew who he was.
Watch Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. THAT version of Darkseid is an ic
Sherlock vs ElementaryThe concept of taking the world's greatest detective out of his Victorian era setting and dropping him into 21st Century London shouldn't have worked. It should have failed as miserably as I thought it would.Sherlock vs Elementary3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hooooo. Was I proven wrong on that one.
The scant six episodes of Sherlock contain some of the best material the BBC has ever produced and proved that the detective can work his deductive wizardry in any time period.
Which is probably why CBS have gone all Chinese and are ripping it off.
When I heard that there was going to be an "American version" of the show; the eye twitched but didn't bat. This happens, and often HAS to happen. A show must fit with the scheduling, and US series are a lot longer than those on British TV, so things have to be stretched.
THEN I learned that it's NOT a remake of BBC's Sherlock, but a brand new series called "Elementary", which is "radically" different because it's set in New York.
Unsurprisingly, the Beeb are a bit miffed by this.

Yooka-LayleeI’ve had a few people asking me about Yooka-Laylee, the first game from Playtonic, a tiny developer made up of ex-Rare staff.Yooka-Laylee3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m guessing people are bugging me about it because I was a concept artist on the least popular of the Banjo Kazooie games, a series to which Yooka-Laylee is the spiritual successor.
Aside from having worked with some of the Playtonic staff during my stint at Rare, I have no connection to the title, nor any inside information about it.
My general opinion of it is: it’s a piece of epic trolling!
With the symbiotic characters, the art style, the googly eyes, even the colour scheme of their logo; the Playtonic guys are basically sticking their finger up at Microsoft and saying “This is what we wanted to be making, not that Kinnect shite you forced us to work on”.
I like that.
I like that a lot.
Best of luck to them!
The AvengersYou know that giddy, gleeful feeling that renders you incapable of doing little more than giggle like a lunatic?The Avengers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much had that from start to finish during the Avengers film (Which was released on Fair Blighty's shores as "Avengers Assemble" thanks to the past efforts of Steed and Peel).
There have only been a handful of movies that invoked that kind of response in me: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Abram's Star Trek, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and the first Iron Man film are those which immediately spring to mind.
Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!

I literally get more homework after every single class I take, and this is the kind of homework you need at least one full day to finish.

I don't draw 24/7, and I'm sure neither do you. So please, please stop asking me about new updates, or telling (nay, ordering) me to update my comic on a daily basis like I used to.

"When did Videogames become so violent and scary? " -Wreck-It-Ralph
What do you feel makes a Video Game "Mature"? And is it possible to create a Mature action game that sells without having to step into the UltraViolence/sexuality territory?
If you don't live in the U.S., what do people in your country considered "M" ratings?
Okay, okay, I kind of know what you're all thinking with this topic, and I just want to state: I don't mind violence in Videogames. I love fighting games, I play FPSes-- heck, I don't mind it in other genres either, like the over the top movie Kickass, or the anime Gantz... To add to that, I don't think that VideoGames contribute

Well; that was rather good, wasn't it?
Splendid art, voice acting and a compelling narrative on par with any live-action, prime-time series.
The resolution at the end, though, felt a little rushed. While I'm glad there was one, it had an air of finality about it, as though it's uncertain a second season will ever transpire.
If there isn't one; it'll be a crime, given all the work that went into crafting Korra's world.
SteamToday I finally got a Steam Account. I know, I know, I'm late to all these things.

But for whatever it's worth, I did get a Steam Account and have been trying it out. I rather like it, actually, though I am disappointed in the number of Mac compatible games available. At least a bunch of really good games like Portal, Braid, Limbo, and Bit.Trip are here. Steam is what I think all video game consoles will someday morph into... and it's most definitely a step in the right direction. It's got it's kinks that still need ironing out, but it excels in the most important areas such as friendly user interfaces and ease of purchase.

Fall of the Union?On the 18th of September, Scotland may break from the UK.Fall of the Union?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
As a resident of these isles, I can tell you that the general atmosphere surrounding the vote is a bit…..”meh”.
This is kind of alarming. It’s a big f**king deal for both sides of the border and people should be paying a little more attention, especially up in Scotland, since it’s they who will determine what transpires.
My opinion on the matter is that unity brings strength, but people have a right to decide their own future and if the Scots feel they’re better off going solo then they should vote “Yes”.
However, I feel that those behind the calls for independence (the same people who will hold power with a “yes” vote) are playing on an opportunity presented to them by the economic downturn between 2008 and now. It’s made their sales pitch much more enticing to those whose finances were shaken over the last 6 years by evil forces in London (naturally, they don
