My sincere thanks Happy 12th birthday, deviantART!My sincere thanks3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In two days, on August 7th, deviantART will celebrate our 12th year on the Web. As deviantART's third employee (behind spyed and chris), I've spent over 40% of my life working for the site.
The last 12 years have oftentimes been a roller-coaster ride of the highest highs and the lowest lows, but having the opportunity to help build a site like deviantART -- that truly impacts the lives of millions of people -- while getting to work with good friends and talented peers, has been well worth any hardships. It's been the best experience of my life.
My time at deviantART has been an incredible ride and I've learned more than I thought was possible. From gifted co-workers to sage advisors and mentors, I'm forever grateful for every relationship and interaction, and I'd like to thank everyone who has made it possible for deviantART to get where it is today.

OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !AFTER A 9 MONTH CLOSING PROCESS....OFFICIALLY MOVED IN !3 years ago in Personal More Like This
WE CLOSED ON MY NEW HOME ON NOVEMBER 15TH! :iconfinallyplz:
I just spent the past weekend getting everything in and partially unpacked.
I'll be ready to go on comics here shortly.
To give a quick overview of the situation i was faced with for the last 6 months, :icontomitakeflash: and I have been living out of a suitcase under the roof of friends. It's been very taxing on us. Essentially being homeless for 6 months put a BIG slow down on my productivity here on DA. It put a HUGE strain on Brad and my relationship and pushed our friend's nerves to the brink. Now that all is said and done, I feel we are stronger people for having to work through this. I now have a newly renovated 4 level, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, finished basement, beautifully landscaped slice of heaven to call my own.
No more apartment neighbors,
No more wasting money on rent,
It's the perfect place for Brad and I to make our own, and grow our lives.

Mako Mori vs Samus AranSo I was watching Pacific Rim for the 50th time the other day and it suddenly dawned on me. Mako Mori is Samus Aran.Mako Mori vs Samus Aran2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you are all probably aware, I’ve taken a lot of heat in the past for supporting Metroid: Other M, a revolutionary Wii game that had a very unfortunate English translation. The main bulk of Other M’s story focuses on Samus Aran taking orders from her former boss Adam Malcovich as they explore a derelict space station. Her complicated relationship with Adam is a central aspect to Samus’s character, but for reasons that still baffle me, the gaming communities have pretty much ripped to shreds their relationship as being “weak” and “disempowering towards female characters.”
I’ve explained in the past why I disagree with that assessment, but let’s try something else here. Let’s compare Samus Aran to one of the recent pinnacles of strong female characters in FILM: Pacific Rim’s Mako Mori.
Short contest! Huge prizeSo I wanted to give away the rest of my points that I had left from the previous contest. So Im going to make a challenging short contest this time!Short contest! Huge prize3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Draw the following characters under.
- They need to be in an enviroment doing something together
(can be whatever aslong as they are not just sitting there or standing there)
- Challenge yourself on backgrounds and poses and shading.
Characters you will be drawing
You have to include them all and no one else.
You can also find more picture of them in my galleryfolder animal characters.
I will judge on effort and creativity of the chosen idea. 50/50
Its all up to you what you end up making them do, and you cannot write a story to explain the picture, try to make the picture explain itself.

Google Maps had a Wikipedia layer that brought up links to Wikipedia articles connected to the region you were surveying. It was a brilliant way to learn about locations you have not yet visited, or to delve into an area's history.
A week or so ago, and apparently with no warning, Google removed this function and have now been flooded with complaints.
Is it just me or are big name companies growing increasingly incapable of doing ANYTHING right?

25,000 die from hunger every day, a million is withering away in prisons due to the war on drugs for victimless crimes, human rights violations abound, preventable disease and lack of clean water is killing millions per year, banking cartels immune from prosecution are stealing trillions, drones are blowing up children in half, etc, etc..
Fuck all that, right? The media didn't tell you to care. Take the red pill, friends, and walk away. Keep your mind under your own control. This is not a lack of compassion the three fellow human beings who tragically lost their lives today. It's a lack of respect for those who use every marketable tragedy to further their ends and profits. I

Why is Pokemon Black and White 2 trolling me?Ok for Heartgold, I made a commitment to catch ALL the Pokemon, I wanted to follow the original idea of 'Gotta Catch'em all' before Pokemon America dropped that slogan after realising Ash only filled up like 10% of the Pokedex. And thats what happened, I caught all 493 Pokemon and got my certificate. Hours of leveling up, hours of breeding, hours of finding the Pokemon (Including buying previous versions just to get certain Pokemon), hours of looking up what items/stones are needed to get certain evolution, good job me.Why is Pokemon Black and White 2 trolling me?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then Pokemon Black and White came out, I kinda half expected there to be a new Pokemon game coming out with new Pokemon anyway, so I wasn't too bothered by completing my dex again for the 5th gen games. Its actually not as bad because instead of trading Pokemon over (Which can take quite a while) this time you can play the slingshot minigame where u shoot your pokeball at 6 pokemon at a time, its a nice little game to make it seem like you are doing more than jus

How are you doing?
Not that good, I'm here in office, doing stuffs instead of enjoying the
summer in the beach. jeez. I'm kind of tired of the daily routine but
need to be productive. I'm spending a lot of time in front of the
computer, searching for inspirations and designs
Could you tell us something about yourself- what's your name, where are you from, do you work/study?
I'm Ernie Parcon, I'm a filipino vector/vexel artist, from philippines ofcourse. I'm currently working at the bikemate trdg industry (we are more on jerseys and bike cycling stuffs.)
When and how did you discover art?
It was 2011 when i started doing vector and vexelling. i'm inspired by
the filipino vector artists like vincent raphael aseo, Sonny luli
pagara, Rizaldy Catapang and Christian Dalida, and when i saw their
work, i was shocked and said "This is almost non-human!"

"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,

'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.I wish I was joking, but another bout of sexual harassment against women creeped up this week (only days after the Might No. 9 fiasco). This time in the form of an indi video game a woman is trying to get green-lit to Steam. The game is about depression and is just suppose to help people understand what it’s like living with it, and for this “grievous” action she’s been the target of harassment campaigns. She’s received harassing phone calls, death threats, her personal information and addresses posted for everyone to see. She’s had to change her phone number to stop the harassment, and even pulled the game originally to try and calm this crap down.'Don't Feed the Trolls' needs to die.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bravely, she’s decided to post it anyway and is trying desperately to showcase how awful, hurtful, and disgusting our gaming community can be when we stay silent.
