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:

DA's Insular Taste PhenomenonIt's been quite a while since I wrote a preachy "THINK ABOUT YO' ART"-type journal, and some of my newer watchers may not know that this is a particular(ly annoying) habit of mine. This is a subject I've had on my mind for quite some time for a number of reasons, and it's recently coalesced into a semi-soluble form so here we go. (As an aside- this journal does have some recycled ideas from a previous post of mine, but obviously I hadn't really said everything I wanted to on the subject.)DA's Insular Taste Phenomenon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's no mystery that I love this website. I came in at the tail end of the pre-critique wonder years, when the internet discovered and exploited that, yes, we don't always produce the highest quality art here. There's a lot of unpleasantness directed towards DeviantArt. At RISD, I made a point to never mention that I had an account here, because of the looks of disgust I would get haha and people would think about me differently. It was

Why Skyrim makes me feel like I'm on drugsNow, without going into too many details, I've had enough strange times to be able to identify 'strange times'.Why Skyrim makes me feel like I'm on drugs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But the sequence of events I just experienced in Skyrim have made me question my own reality.
I hope you're bored, because this will undoubtedly become long winded.
After playing ME3 for weeks, I decided to go back to Skyrim. Some of you might remember that before ME3 came out I was having a hard time finding a skyrim husbando. When I finally did, he left me waiting at the alter for two days. Yes, two days. Then after the vows he RAN OFF. After some searching I found my lizard lover and ordered him to my home to make tasty foodstuff and collect money for me. After some misadventures involving a lot of cabbage and some barrels, I returned to my breeze home only to find it empty. This worried me. It had been days since I ordered my husbando to the kitchen and he was yet to appear. Concerned, I began to trace the path he would have taken to get to me, imagining finding him left

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

Much Ado about ScorchHey Scorch fans! *claps hands together* …I~M CRU~EL… for not updating or never even mentioning what's happened to Scorch. But you know what I love about you guys, is that you're STILL talking about it after all these years.Much Ado about Scorch1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may know, back in 2004, when I started going to college, I began drawing early concepts for Scorch. Halloween of 2007 those fun little ideas first materialized as an experimental webcomic that I put on SmackJeeves and DrunkDuck. What started as a fun project, to my surprise and joy, ended up growing a pretty diehard audience and some loyal fans. As Scorch was really starting to take off, I thought it might be time to take it seriously and submit it to a publishing company.
Unfortunately, personal life tragedy struck before anything came of this. After getting my heart broken a few times all production stopped and I kind of went on an existential trip down the rabbit hole. It was a several years long 'tragic' adventure, which somehow… I managed to surv
Before you throw that pity party read thisBeing in touch with your weaknesses is important in order to grow as an artist, but are you so hung up on what you can’t do well that it’s holding you back? I'm not talking about the intermittent (or frequent) attacks of complete blockage, or even lack of inspiration, but full out pity parties.Before you throw that pity party read this2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve seen far too many people on dA who post exercise after exercise, writing in the artist comments that once again they’ve failed, they’ve read hundreds of books, studied the masters for so many years, and they still cannot draw a photorealist rending of a man’s head. First of all let me say that I highly respect “self taught” artists and I’m not discouraging anyone who chooses (or must) go that route. However, setting realistic goals and finding your niche is extremely important. Let me say this: not everyone will be able to paint like a Baroque period artist! But that doesn't mean you can't be a painter, it just means
Common Misconceptions: Traditional ArtFirst of all, hello! It's been almost a year since I contributed a blog post to this lovely group so I want to say hi I'm back folks! I have a lot of artsy things to share with you all that I've learned (and am still learning) so hang on tight! While I was thinking what to write as my first topic, I decided to kind of go back to the beginning as far as our thinking as artists goes in the creation process. I've come up with a short series called "Common Misconceptions" just to debunk some myths and misguided trends that are so often part of what we experience as we grow. This first "Common Misconceptions" topic will focus on traditional art.Common Misconceptions: Traditional Art2 years ago in Personal More Like This

What I Turn To When My Brain Goes 'Blurgh'I really want to share with everyone the artists and places I often turn to when I'm feeling low on inspiration. Right before I begin a painting I will always browse through my catalogue of inspiration for a kind of... artistic boost before I begin.What I Turn To When My Brain Goes 'Blurgh'2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Firstly, my main source of inspiration does genuinely spring from my imagination. I've been drawing since I was about six-years-old and I always have a seed of an idea singing to me from some part of my brain. The need to breathe life into that little idea is a terrible itch, but a gratifying one.
Most of my pictures are inspired by women. Obviously. I love female anatomy, so my ideas will always start with an idea for a pose. The hair is my favourite part and that often completes the image in my mind - I love creating the flow and shapes. Colour comes next, often inspired by the environment and season I picture the subject in. The image grows from there.
But of course I am inspired by what I see around me. It's fair to say that prett
When People Try to Use YouHey,When People Try to Use You2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just wanted to send this because it's always nice to be appreciated. Your comics are beautiful and I think that the even more important thing is that the advice you give is completely true. I have tried to find ways to explain the creative-process to my parents or friends who asked, "How can you come up with this stuff?" My answer had always been, "I don't know. I practice?" Comparing my answer to yours I feel rather stupid, but you have a wonderful turn-of-phrase and can clearly explain what most of us can't.
I do have one question for you, though, and I'm not entirely sure about how to go about solving the problem.
My parents and friends are really encouraging with my design work in school (I'm a New Media Designer), but I find that sometimes I end up being smothered by their help. They start suggesting ideas and offering every scrap of advice on colors and how I should design things. I do take their advice and perhaps make a few compositions and

OCT 101 (2012) EDITDisclaimer: this is not a personal attack against any OCT's, oct admins, or conduct of oct admin teams in general. These are observations, thoughts, and tips that I felt should be taken into consideration when one decides they want to run an OCT in hopes that it makes things a little easier for people.OCT 101 (2012) EDIT2 years ago in Personal More Like This
FURTHER DISCLAIMER: every oct is different, someone doing things differently from the norm is not bad. These are all merely tools and guidelines meant to help. I've heard a lot about personal attacks being made using both my posts about OCT's as a way of bullying and pushing around the admins of other Tournament groups, and I do not condone it in the slightest. I'd like to apologize for anyone that has had that done to them.

Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as not

'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.

So okay some of you got jellin of my fine japanese language desu ne.
I thought of why not teach my lovely watchers speak japanese?
Okay let's start with the simple one. If you want your sentence to sound like japanese you need to put 'desu' at the end of each sentences. Now before we start using 'desu' let me tell you first what it means. It would be stupid if you're using the word that you don't know right? Okay the word 'desu' comes from the latin word 'Canius Femina' meaning bitch. For example I love you desu (I love you bitch).. Tehehe kidding aside. Okay the meaning of 'desu' is really hard to explain but basically it's a polite modifier or it can also mean " It is ", "Those are" , or "I am." or whatever.
Now that you know the word desu let's use it in a sentence.
