Days. Weeks. Months. How long had it been? I didn't know anymore. When your nightmares were all the same, when every day involved the same horrible, useless task, time became…irrelevant. My hands were still scarred from shifting away the rubble of a ruined castle, searching for something, anything, that would tell me she was alive. That against all logic, she wasn't dead. In all that time, I was alone. Tillie, Sky and Jace all searched at my side, but I was by myself. Nobody could reach me past the wall I'd constructed around myself, the wall that had been put up to keep me from burning everything in a ten-mile radius. Those scars on my hands, those earned while searching in vain for her, I refused to heal. I wanted to forget, but at the same time, I wanted to remember. I wanted to remind myself everyday of how I had failed myself, and how I had failed her.
Shingeki no KyojinOh my God, you guys. I need to share my current addiction with you. Shingeki no Kyojin (literally, 'Advancing Giants', but translated into English as "Attack on Titan") is without a doubt the most amazing anime series I've seen all year. It's only 11 episodes in, so I can't vouch for how well it'll turn out, but so far it is spellbinding. The story is set in a world where the remnants of the human population live inside cities surrounded by enormous walls due to the sudden appearance of the Titans, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour humans seemingly without reason. The story centers around the life of Eren Jäger and his bff/stalwart protector/foster sis/possible secret admirer Mikasa Ackerman, whose lives are changed forever after the appearance of a colossal Titan brings about the destruction of their home and the death of Eren's mother.Shingeki no Kyojin1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ah man. Everything about this anime is just so BIG - the theme song, the scale of the conflict, the stakes of losing, the way cool fighting style
What Are Original Characters?What are original characters?What Are Original Characters?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hello everyone! Today we are going to go over the concept of "What is an original character" and this is actually part one of a two part news article series. The second article will be released at a later date.
What do original characters have to do with the Manga/Anime gallery here on deviantART? Well just about everything. The Manga/Anime gallery is designed for original characters only, and by original, I mean original. Here is an example of what I mean...
Drawings of characters submitted into the Manga/Anime gallery can only be your ownThe drawings of characters need to be from your own universe.If the character you are drawing is placed into another "existing universe" such as Pokemon or Naruto, they do not belong in Manga/Anime, instead they belong in fanart.Your own character, your own world, your own creation, then it can go into the Manga/Anime gallery
If anyone is still confused by that, I can show you some visuals using my character

Our Dear VeteransI saw a documentary today http://youtu.be/ix0EPH3jPxk on Desmond Doss, a conscientious objector who reused to kill yet he received the highest military Honor.Our Dear Veterans3 years ago in Personal More Like This
He prayed for his Company B and while A got decimated, B went untouched. He dragged about 75 injured/dead soldiers across the plateau under heavy fire and lowered them with a rope to safety. He refused to leave them behind. A Japanese soldier reported that he had him in his sights the whole time but every time he tried to shoot him, his gun would jam up. He was really under God's protection. When he asked his superiors to give him time to read his Bible for strength, they put their plans on hold and allowed it because shoot, whatever he was doing (or rather, allowing God to do) was working.
Mr. Doss was a very devout man and he is a gem, a human national treasure. I only hope my existence serves to benefit others nearly to the same degree his did. He was so sold out to God th

And the winners are...
In the Judge's Section:
Chosen by :iconmistytang::iconzimeta::iconshoomlah:
Give me your voice by Khioora
What the judges were saying: "Khioora's piece definitely jumped out at me when I was first browsing through the entries- it's a striking illustration, granted, but I was also taken with the integration of both 1830's fashion, and Romantic period portrayals of mermaids with more delineated legs. I'm not a huge fan of fashion in the 1830's, but I'll be the first to admit that it's a blast to draw; I think Khioora did a great job of capturing the so-called "Waist and Extravagance" of the period with both her characters' overall silhouette, and her general detailing of the costume. Great stuff!"~ shoomlah

Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?Over the weekend at SDCC, Warner Bros announced that the new Man of Steel sequel will also feature Batman. The team-up movie will be followed by a Flash movie and then a Justice League Avenger's style team-up movie. This has a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering what exactly is wrong with DC and Warner Bros respectively. Why Flash and not Wonder Woman? Why add Batman when reports have been told that Christian Bale doesn't want to return and we'll likely get a completely new Batman? Why do a team-up so soon after the first Man of Steel movie instead of fleshing out Superman's modernized world better?Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well... to put it bluntly I don't think Warner Bros really gives a shit about comic book themed movies and they're only going through these motions because they feel like they HAVE to rather than because they WANT to. Just take a look at their track record.
History of Bad Marketing
First off, Warner Bros has a problem of relying too heavily on the people th
Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?An important point in the characterization of Paper Stars is that each character has one very important characteristic that defines them as a person and influences their day to day lives. Each of these traits are supposed to be both the character's greatest asset and their greatest flaw. They both build the character up and destroy their progress. And in this journal, I wannted to share with my readers an in-depth analysis of Benjamin Jastrow.Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Easily the antithesis of Sara, Benjamin's defining characteristic is his altruism, and all of his other traits are influenced by it or are a result of it. His mild, gentle nature is centered around his carnal fear of causing others discomfort, which, in turn, becomes his own discomfort. His kindness is not limited to only those he cares for--it stretches to all those he meets, even when they are cruel to him, and he willingly shoulders the blame for any and all grievances around him. He is a human scapegoat, an alacritous martyr willing to give u

SAY NO TO FREE ARTEvery day, there are more and more posts on here seeking "artists" for everything from auto graphics to comic books to corporate logo designs. More people are finding themselves in need of some form of illustrative service.SAY NO TO FREE ART7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
But what they're NOT doing, unfortunately, is realizing how rare someone with these particular talents can be.
To those who are "seeking artists", let me ask you; How many people do you know, personally, with the talent and skill to perform the services you need? A dozen? Five? One? none?
More than likely, you don't know any. Otherwise, you wouldn't be posting on here to find them.
And this is not really a surprise.
In this country, there are almost twice as many neurosurgeons as there are professional illustrators. There are eleven times as many certified mechanics. There are SEVENTY times as many people in the IT field.
So, given that they are less rare, and therefore less in demand, would it make sense to ask your mechanic to work on your car for free? Woul

AND THE WINNERS ARE....
IN THE JUDGING SECTION:
The judges fell head over heels in love with this lovely imagining of the would-be "Fool's Errand"
that would have been made in the 2000s. All the characters designs, back-story and thought
behind it made us VERY happy! Amazing work!
Another movie that would have been made in the 2000s! This one has a very Disney design
and the fun feel of the early 2000s Disney movies
like The Emperor's New Groove. Wonderful work!
We loved the representation for this on-going in and out of production movie,
Don Quixote. The characters are obviously very different from each other and
compliment each other very well! The sun and windmill silhouette pay great homage to the original story.

Policy StatementThis is ridiculous to me, but I guess to be 100% fair to all who visit this page, I ought to post this statement up front:Policy Statement2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have made it clear from the outset that I am simply not interested in arguing with people with opposing views over the internet. To disregard that request is, in my view, trollish behavior. "Discussion" is a waste of my time. Every minute I spend "arguing" with someone (who has not arguments, but rather, beliefs) is a minute spent away from poastering, sending emails, making phone calls, trying to raise a little money, and other useful things to advance Occupy/Anon/anti-SOPA, and other progressive movements.
If someone wants to discuss on this page how to advance the goals of Occupy, Anon, anti-SOPA, pro-women, 'green,' etc., or, how to make these poasters more effective (including suggestions and requests), they will be welcomed and their comments will receive a courteous reply. If people want to exchange friendly, admiring, helpful, or even flirtatio
