..Hi guys! Reason I have been deadI just wanted to say that I'm so very sorry for not having posted anything in half a year. Long story short, I have been extremely.. EXTREMELY busy. I honestly haven't been able to draw 6 months and it is killing me. I want to draw -- it is my life -- however, it's my last year of college and I really have to focus on being successful in my last year which is so difficult with my job and upcoming internship I know that I should at least take some time out for drawing but I'm so terribly busy, it gives me that feeling that I shouldn't, that I have more important things to finish and while I know that's not true it still gives me that guilty feeling...Hi guys!

Yoshi StoryI have to admit, I am incredibly surprised by the overwhelming success and appreciation of the recent comic "A Yoshi Story"Yoshi Story2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In less than 24 hours the comic has generated almost 200,000 views and been featured on a number of different outlooks including DA's tumblr, facebook, ICanHasCheezeburger, Memebase, and more.
As much as I would like to take credit for the comic, I want people to give proper credit due to DA user Commisar-Erdno for writing the story in the first place. All I did was draw it. Credit for the concept and execution goes to Erdno. So please be sure to check their DA page out and tell them how much you loved the comic.
It's also rather fun to see the comic being used as a Rorschach Test of people's optimism/pessimism. Either way, it's still fun to see everyone's interpretations of the story.
So thank you everyone for your support. I really did not expect a comic about a Yoshi sacrificing itself to save Mario to become so popular and loved by s

I have paid off the remainder of my car insurance, saving myself $125 a month. I was debating for the first several days on paying down my credit card, but then I realized my balance for my insurance was low enough where I could pay it off, and I still had some money to pay off my card.
Any money that I get from this point on will go towards helping to pay off my Discover card. Credit cards are such double edge swords. It was what helped me through the worst of everything, but now I need to pay it down. I

I will not be subjected to criminal abuseIts time for another story, do you guys want a story? I will give you one. This one is about my early days in the work industry and how you should always becareful and know your legal rights before you head in, you do not want to be subjected to criminal abuse without knowing. This happened a few years back, straight out of Design College, when I was still an 'Amateur Graphic Designer' as they like to call me. So I was searching online for jobs and found one that requires a Graphic Designer with artistic skills who can create original characters as well as making little icons and graphics stuff. I was like HELL YEAH THATS ME, so I sent them my portfolio, back then it had really unprofessional messy drawings and then a few graphic design works and photography bullshit pieces that I threw in here and there to show my 'range', I didn't have a consistant style and I had no idea what people wanted to see lol.

Level 5 Trolling and Pacific Rim BeatenLevel 5 TrollingLevel 5 Trolling and Pacific Rim Beaten2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If this is old news, forgive me I just found it and thought it was hilarious:
Level 5 Studios (the company most noted for the Professor Layton series) was having their 15th year anniversary this week. Along with discounted game prices, part of the celebration was to make a wallpaper featuring player voted favorite characters. Unfortunately for Level 5, the voting of these characters quickly came under attack by trolls who hijacked the results and submitted obscure minor characters instead. The final list included the airplane from Aero Porter in first place with 46,000 votes.
Rather than toss out the votes and start over, Level 5 just rolled with it and produced the wallpaper with the skewed results anyway. You can download the wallpaper here: http://www.level5.co.jp/15th/vote/
I think what I love most about this is that they actually went with the airplane. The inanimate object from the Aero Porter games gets TOP BILLING on the poster. That's hilari

As a member of the internet, communist groups, and the Controversy Inc DA group, I get into a fair amount of arguments. I like to think that I present my arguments fluently and coherently, but I'm not ignorant enough to think I'm always right.
Everyone makes logical fallacies. Everyone. No exceptions.
Logic is not the natural state of the human mind, because we are creatures of emotion rather than rationality.
But, as someone who hates logical fallacies, especially when I make them, I'm making this guide so that they become less common.

Silent Hill: RevelationWow. And I thought the first Silent Hill film missed the point.Silent Hill: Revelation3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was surprised that a sequel was made at all, given the rather poor narrative (and acting. That kid was almost as bad as the brat from Phantom Menace) of the first movie, but in comparison with Revelation, it was positively Shakespearian.
If there's a third film in the franchise, I'll be amazed (to a point. We have had, what is it, 5 Resident Evil films, now?)
How hard is it to wrap your head around the concept, Film-Makers? Silent Hill has no face, it has no agenda, it's just an evil f**king mirror that reflects your personal demons. It's the perfect vehicle to use different actors to tell different stories with each and every film. It's potentially the James Bond of horror set-ups. Play it right and you could get 50 films out of it, easy.
You devolve it into a generic, fun-fair, ghost-train and you're pissing away the concept with such force you blow a hole in the lavatory wall.

Mass Effect: Retaliation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foFmDj87ltM
What do we have here? This is the largest expansion to the multiplayer to date.
Well, first and foremost, we have an entirely new enemy faction: the Collectors are returning to Mass Effect!
The old faces from ME2 will be coming back with the Praetorian, Scion, Abomination, Trooper and Collector Captain, and these familiar foes will fight alongside the new Dragoons and different Geth drones.
Two new allies will be made available, the Turian Ghost Infiltrator and Havoc Soldier. Jet packs, people.
Just when you thought getting thrown off the map as a Vanguard was fun.
Bioware says "many more" characters will be added on a "regular basis".
Collector Weapons will be made available as well, coming with the assault rifle, SMG, and sniper rifle all in your favorite crunchy buggy flavor!

Alaska!Here's a quick journal entry to say I'm baaaaaaaa~ck! I'll get back to work tomorrow, but am busy unpacking and going through pictures today fro the trip. The trip to Alaska was amazing and I loved every minute of it. It's such a different place compared to California! We went rock climbing, hiking, and scuba diving while we were there, but those are things I do quite frequently here. The real treat was ice trekking and mountaineering on the glaciers. I think glacier trekking is my new favorite hobby! I love using the ice pick and the crampons. They made ice climbing and hiking a breeze! Here's a couple pictures of the funsies!

the myth about talentMany people are under the assumption many of the high profile artists in the digital art community are mainly good because of talent. This is not completely true(in my opinion). What does make them great is the simple fact of constant and regular practice. But if you still like to cling to the word, then talent is just in other words an ambition and motivation. This word,"talent" has been branded with something that you think is something that can only be inherited and if you dont have it you are doomed to fail. Many people has lost potential careers because of this.the myth about talent3 years ago in Personal More Like This
well folks let me put that myth to rest because i think anyone with ambition and motivation can learn any tool and any skill.And if you are not learning it, it is because you are not working hard enough on it.its simple as that.The practice will open your eyes and you will develop to see things in different ways, once again this has nothing to do with talent.

I know there are a million "how to be popular" guides on DA and a million more parody versions of them. This article isn't about becoming popular, or starting drama or racking up pageviews as fast as possible for the sake of seeing a larger number.
This article won't make your art better, or make you more a more popular personality. However, what I've noticed is that many artists are missing out on feedback and exposure that they should be getting if not for a few common mistakes. Time after time, I've read on Artist's Confessions, or just browsing through members' personal journals that their gallery doesn't recieve any traffic and they can't improve because they're not getting any feedback. They feel like their lack of popularity is a personal statement. That their art isn't worth looking at. This is entirely untrue.
Hopefully this will help you, the underexposed artist, to b

I feel that art is overwhelming, its something so immense, so abstract, so godly that getting remotely close to actually mastering any of its endless nuances feels unobtainable.
At a certain degree it is, but what i have been noticing for the past ...humm... almost two years now... is that, the only way you can climb the next step in this endless staircase is not to give up while you are about to fall from the step you are into.
You are drawing something, and it feels wrong, it feels bad, and you erase it, you draw it again, and it looks even worse and you twist it, bend it, erase it, do it again, then its really horrible, and lastly you say: screw this, i give up, its over, no point because i cant do it.
And you give up on the entire piece, and all the effort, all the struggle, the horror was in vain, went down the drain.
When you are about to do this, don't.

Schematics and layout to come soon!
Gaining access to the War Tardis docking station is a simple matter of telepathic thought to open the doors to the War Deck in the bowels of the Time Lord Citadel. The ships are docked in a stationary hover mode along a vast circular room that stretches upwards and downwards. Each layered docking station is a series of scaffolds that begin with a massive hexagonal door, and reach out in all directions to the floating war Tardis which is at the end of similar paths. Each War Tardis quietly humms and sits in splendid (temporal and space) anchor awaiting it's crew and troops. Each ship has been equipped with the proper land based and temporal based weaponry depending on the mission. As you look up you see the underside of other type 91 Tardises about 50 feet above you and 50 feet below you see the twisted tops of spires and menacing spikes of other War Tardises in their golden glory on the next deck levels.

The plan works like this: People who play nice are allowed to create communities for like-minded players. Those who can't are slowly and gradually demoted through a point system and eventually grouped together with other ass-hole players. I dunno about the rest of you, but I wouldn't want to spend even 5 minutes playing on a server with the absolute scummiest of the scummiest players in the world, would you?
Since this is just an announcement details are scarce. We don't know precisely how people are voted up or down, who controls that, how it's done, or anything of the sort. But I have to admit that this passive-aggressive way of dealing with the vocal minority that piss everyone else off and ruin online gaming for the rest of us who play fair is... kinda clever and a genuine at
