Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

Johnny Cash: The Man in Black
Johnny Cash was without a doubt one of the most influential, acclaimed, and popular singer–songwriters of the last century.
February 26 would have been his 82nd birthday. Many of Cash’s recordings are now almost universally known—songs like “I Walk the Line” and “Folsom Prison Blues.” As a result of his work he has been inducted into the Country Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

:iconcalculatus: This guy decided to make a breakdown of abilities of Blaze and Penn for me and there are some crazy stuff here!
Check it out!!!))
You gave us a few of Blaze's and Penn's abilities in the past but I decided that it wasn't good enough for me, so I fleshed their powers out some more by taking their skills and physical and spiritual properties of fire into account.

Where do you place value?I've been noticing a trend in a lot of Christians feeling like they need to defend themselves. So I'm going to share some things that have helped me with this.Where do you place value?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
An easy way to deal with this is to put more value on what God says about you than you put on what other people say about you. Which do you hold in higher regard? Does what other people think and say about you dominate your outlook? Or do you hold what God says in a higher esteem? It's good to value and respect other people. Even if someone is wrong about something, that person is still valuable. They are valuable to God, and so they should be valuable to you. But that doesn't mean you need to value that person's words or opinion, especially if they are wrong about something. If you only put value on what God says, no accusations or insults from others should affect you. For this to be effective, you need to know what God says. The bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is about Jesus and His finished work. Jesus is God's word. If i

Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit: Elves
Tolkien’s texts are notable for their abundance of characters, many of them mentioned perhaps only once, other playing very important parts in the stories. However, it is often very difficult to find any description of how those characters look, and this is what we, artists and illustrators, are usually most concerned with.
So here it is – Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit – a list of all those characters, whose physical appearance is mentioned in the texts, including The Silmarillion and The History of the Middle-earth.
To start with, the Elves. As we know, during the march from Cuiviënén t

I decided to put my knowledge to use, for the benefit of our artistic community and all people out there trying to thrive.
As I've written in my ID, I'm a literature and language teacher. I've been working hard to get my master degree in French Literature and Narrative Theories, which will come latter this year.
And as for this, I thought I could be at your service to read your literature deviations and post you honest constructive critics based on the best of world wide letters!
But I have to be clear about one thing: I am not the kind of person that only say what you might want to hear.
I will never be rude or disrespectful BUT... it is needed of me to say sometimes things you may not agree or accept.
If you ask me for a critic don't be upset if I eventually point an aspect of your composition that needs to be improved.
I'm sure that it's not

Recoloristas sueltos en DeviantART.Hola, gente;Recoloristas sueltos en DeviantART.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Escribo esto con la intención de convocarlos a leer esta entrada:
*Para empezar, ¿Qué son los recolors/recolores y los recoloristas?
Los recolores o recolors es el robo de una imagen con el fin de modificar sus colores o modificarla desde cero. En resumen, es un tipo de robo de arte que realizan algunas personas, el cuál consiste en modificar el dibujo de un personaje con fines de "crear su propio personaje", con la excusa de "no saber dibujar".Los recoloristas son las personas que se dedican a hacer este tipo de cosas, con fin de crear su personaje u otros fines para sus no creaciones.
Los recolores no son creaciones, es el robo de arte de otras personas. Por lo tanto, no es original, sino que es marcado como algo malintencionado.
*Ejemplo de recolorista: :iconscarface-15:*¿Está bien lo que hacen estas personas?
Definitivamente no está bien. No está bien

Life Drawing, painting, and Richard Armitage.LOL! As some of you may have noticed, a lot of my art lately has been drawing (mostly pencil) and some more figure drawing.Life Drawing, painting, and Richard Armitage.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I returned to taking classes in life drawing. It's been long overdue! I used to take figure drawing class at least once a year (if not several times a year), but there has been a long lapse, which made me feel like I was losing my edge. So finally I managed to get back to it, and it's been wonderful. So, expect to see more figure drawing (i.e. nudes) in my gallery.
I've mentioned this in my blog but I'll say it here too: figure drawing is a core part of many artists' education and a lot of us return to figure drawing regularly to keep our skills sharp.
I know that some people (even some artists!) think there's something wrong with drawing nudes (like it's "indecent"), but to me, it's all about stretching my drawing capabilities, and life drawing is one of the best ways to do that! So, I apologize if anyone doesn't like the nudes, but they are here to stay

It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Dear deviantART...I am refusing to use the rebranded name because, I'm annoyed about the rebrand. I'm annoyed about your direction, your lack of focus in key areas and your lack of communication.

Last year you spent a lot of money on a rebrand, this year you've cut 50% of your work force, entire departments have been decimated and peoples lives have been thrown upside down without notice. But you never really communicated to anyone why. You still don't, you're not telling the community what's happening and that's only going to hurt you. People will see that helpdesk tickets take longer to get a response, people see that lots of people are no longer staff and you're not letting them know why. You know that people have a belief that the site is dying, you're only furthering it right now. How much of a better state would the site be in if the rebrand hadn't happened? Would I and the rest of the people that lost our jobs without notic
