The beginning of time
Most scientists now think that time started with the beginning of the Universe.
And we are pretty sure that the Universe began about 13,700,000,000 years ago.
Temporal measurement, or chronometry, takes two distinct period forms: the calendar, a mathematical abstraction for calculating extensive periods of time, and the clock, a physical mechanism that counts the ongoing passage of time. In day-to-day life, the clock is consulted for periods less than a day,
PracticeBy now everybody already knows that becoming a good artist doesn't come from talent alone. On contrary; talent is a myth. Like the famous quote goes: "Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration". Meaning so much that even with a good idea and a bright mind, you still have to work your ass off in order to achieve something. While this makes mad skills available for basically everybody, I still hear many people complain about practice being a rather boring thing, or about them practicing a lot but still getting nowhere.Practice4 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
So I thought; Oh well... Why no article about practice?
Conscious vs unconscious practice
First of all lets divide practice in roughly two types. You have the conscious type of practice. This is the kind of practice in which you're sitting down and thinking to yourself "Hell yeah! I'm gonna draw some <subject> today to get better at this!". And then there's the unconscious type of practice. The type of practice that is often more playful an

ENGIE: PROTOCOL 1-1-3Zee Captain's note of summons had sealed my fate.ENGIE: PROTOCOL 1-1-33 years ago in Personal More Like This
I felt a cold pull at my stomach. Something else was coming, re-awakened by the presence of Captain.
Something worse than the shuffling noises of the red beasts outside. The sound of falling cannonball.
Whatever that fleshy monstrosity was, it cared not for me, but it's presence here led ANNIE straight to me.
...And it came to pass on the morrow, that the goddess in the machine came upon me and she wanted vengeance.
She was online, the thermonuclear bombardment of the core databank cube had failed to shut her down.
She was still alive, after all these years.
The explosive crash-landing of the hunter machine through the old roof drew THEIR attention.
I was now between two wild beasts, out for my blood.
What was Protocol 1-1-3?
Memories of Directorate weapon codes lingered in my mind, poisoning my thought pattern.
Could it be?
...So this was to be my death.
ANNIE had let me know that she

Charles snippy: TRANSFERENTRY: 377:Charles snippy: TRANSFER3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.
Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied. Holes in the ozone layer, irreversible changes in the atmosphere, radioactive fallout, wild-life mutations, the days growing darker and the sky turning black - none of this mattered to them.
These changes must have been so gradual that no single generation was able to protest it.
Everyone was happily, playfully, and joyfully ignoring the world outside o

The TwentyFourth: Freelance CollectiveWhat Are we?The TwentyFourth: Freelance Collective1 month ago in Personal More Like This
The 24th Collective is a group of handpicked artists and freelancers collectively working on art and paid projects. We hope to achieve excellence in creative design by combining the best of a group of freelancers. In it's essence a global creative agency formed by freelancers working together. We believe in Success Through Collaboration.
The Idea & Concept
When companies or businesses hire freelancers they usually hope to get their work done at a relatively lower price than from a creative agency, and all freelancers have strengths and weaknesses; which means sometimes, the outcome of projects might not be of the same standard as that of a professional creative agency. With the 24th Collective we hope to do the best for both groups - making sure that freelancers aren't under-paid for their work and that the hiring agencies get the best possible final product through the combined effort from experts in each field.
Ponyscape v0.4!!Hi Everypony!!Ponyscape v0.4!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is with great pride that I present to you Ponyscape version 0.4!! It's been nearly a month in the making, and I think it's come quite a ways! For anyone who doesn't know, Ponyscape is my custom-built derivative of Inkscape, a vector art creation program, which adds features and fixes bugs pertaining to all artists (but especially useful to pony artists).
You can find the changelog for previous versions in their respective journals:
I have compiled binary packages for Windows, Linux Mint 14 64-bit (should also work on Ubuntu 12.10), and Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. On Windows, download the zip file and extract it using 7zip or winrar and run
This Winding Road - or Mr OversensitiveI often get called oversensitive - and maybe I am, I don't know. If it is the case then at least it is tempered by general good cheer! And by that I mean if it seems that I let things get to me in the notes or journals I write and post up here, then that's not generally accurate! I don't dwell. I don't carry it around, letting it inform the mood of any given day. I'm not bitter and harried. I'm a happy sort of a bloke!This Winding Road - or Mr Oversensitive1 year ago in Personal More Like This
However, I do like to know what's going on. I like to know how my head is working, what I'm trying to get at, and how I'm responding to the medium, the audience, and my peers. I can't help but to question myself at every stage, and check my thinking and integrity. If I'm not doing that then I'm just coasting! And I'd be a big fat baldy liar if I let everybody think that it was all easy, and that I really didn't give a fat poo what anybody thought about my work. Maybe we're not meant to care what people think, if we're touching them or not, if we're failing

STOP calling your crappy porn 'artistic nude'. Mornin'! :iconvictorydanceplz:STOP calling your crappy porn 'artistic nude'.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, i've been on dA off and on for about 6 years now. That's a lot of time of involvement in this community.
I'm primarily a writer, and i had many inactive periods here, but i always came back to enjoy amazing art & share amazing ideas with amazing people.
And i'm back again, feeling quite inspired these last few months.
I appreciate any form of visual expression, but as a hobbyist my main interest is photography.
Among everything else, i love good artistic nude photography!
So in my many scavenges-for-wonders i couldn't help but notice some very annoying phenomenona concerning this kind of art, which will be my *kahm* pleasure to present to you further on.
But first of all, i'd like to explain how it came to the provocation for writing this spiteful journal.
I'm (meh, only partially to be honest) sorry for publicly pointing at other individuals, but it seems it had to be done.

My personal online psychiatrist is making me narrate this nonsense down on the chip embedded in my tooth in hopes that someday I may be cured of my "incompatibility" with ANNET, or at least possibly reduce the "mild psychosis caused by work-related stress" as she calls it.
I know that it's not going to happen. The problem is something genetic and while those goons in the genetics department would love to get their machines into my brain, I prefer the lack of sleep and headaches to lobotomy.
I seen the reports on their test subjects: "total neural shut-down", "subject resists integration with the net, increasing the signal strength lead to damage to the 85% of the frontal lobe."
Call me old fashioned, but I like my brain the way it is.
I've had that day-dream again. Day-mare is more likely.
A flash-mare? Not sure what to call these, really.

THAT'S RIGHT YOU ARE A SHOE.
THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT NOT BEING A SHOE BECAUSE IN MY MIND YOU ARE ONE AND THAT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE.
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU CONCEPTUALIZED AS A SHOE IN MY IMAGINATION YOU SHALL REMAIN AS SUCH.
THIS MAKES ME WONDER WHETHER ALL PEOPLES AND OBJECTS CAN BE CONCEPTUALIZED AS SHOES AND THUS BECOME SUCH, GRANTING ME ABSOLUTE POWER OVER THEM. DOES SNIPPY HAVE A CLEVER ARGUMENT? NO HE DOESN'T, HE'S A SHOE. SHOES CAN'T HAVE CLEVER ARGUMENTS.
I FEEL LIKE THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD HAS BEEN LIFTED OFF MY SHOULDERS NOW THAT EVERYTHING IS UNDER MY CONTROL, NOW THAT YOU ARE ALL SHOES. I NO LONGER HAVE TO ANSWER TO MY REGRETS AND PAST MISTAKES BECAUSE THEY ARE SIMPLY SHOES.
I WAS EVEN ABLE TO PAINT PHOTOSHOP IN PURPLE COLOR (TO PLEASE CAPTAIN) AND SHE DIDN'T EVEN PUT UP A PROPER FIGHT BECAUSE I IMAGINED HER AS A SHOE.

After getting out of a slump, I wanted to share this story of something I went through a few years back. Bit of a read, but thanks for sticking through it
As you know, Comic-Con is arriving and as I prepare for it, I grow more and more anticipated with anxiety/joy in regards to the re-release of Last Man Standing.
As long, challenging, and mind-opening the creation of LMS was, something really stuck with me.
Before I had created LMS, I wanted to work for WETA Workshop. To those that don't know them, they've created props, designs, sets, costumes, and more for The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District-9, Elysium, The Hobbit and many more films.
I was obsessed and inspired with them. The creator, Richard Taylor was always a huge inspiration to me. After viewing supplements on the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings DVDS, I knew right there: I HAD TO WORK FOR THEM.
So I al
