__________Official Sphinx OC Contest Information__________
Contest Dates/Timetable: October 1st to October 31st - Midnight to Midnight (EST)
Contest Theme: Create Your Own Sphinx Original Character
With the upcoming launch of my original manga, Sphinx (drawn by the wonderful WickedJuti), coming up on the horizon, I've decided to hold a full-fledged contest to help bring the community into the setting that I've created for this story. I also wanted to get a chance to support the amazing imagination that thrives here on deviantART, which has pushed me time and time again to continue my projects and pursue art. And by separating this contest into both v
Watercolor papers review[Originally posted on my blog but I thought some of you might find this of interest here ]Watercolor papers review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I frequently get questions about the paper I use for my illustrations, I thought it would not be a bad idea to make an in-depth review of watercolour papers: the ones I have tried, whether I liked or disliked them and why, their caracteristics, and what you should pay attention to when looking for a good watercolor paper.
Keep in mind that all opinions are my personal ones, and refer to how I work - the right paper for me may not be the right paper for you, depending on your personal techniques.
Also, I use watercolour paper because I almost systematically mix markers with watercolour and thinned acrylics, but if you use markers only I would not recommend them - they suck the ink out like crazy.

You see, I've been in Japan lots of times and yes, they have this cosplayers everywhere on the malls. Taking pictures hahaha including trainstations, bus stops, and more especially in manga stores.
I can't stop laughing the fact that people go to Japan because of Anime hahaha and they think things they watch on Anime is the same in Japan hahaha lmfao jk jk jk or maybe it's just me cause I always go there. Anyways, make your interest decided. I prefer South Korean beauties (Korean People are cute) but for hi tech and advance technology, I'll go to Japan. (Cause everytime I go to Japan people ask for anime hahaha which is the truth haha I shop Anime there)
MinecraftI just got Minecraft and holy hell is it addictive. I've played around with the iPhone app before (building stuff with infinite blocks with no enemies to fear), but I wasn't prepared for how addictive the full version of the game actually is.Minecraft4 years ago in Personal More Like This
To my credit, I had a little help before starting the game by using a seed which spawned me in the middle of a NPC village, thus giving me shelter and resources to survive my first few treacherous nights. But after a few days had passed and I got used to the controls and crafting, I ventured out and built my own little hut and started digging away.
The first few nights were exceptionally scary, even though I was in a nice safe house. But gradually I learned that Creepers are less creepy to me now than they are simply annoying, and I find myself being more creeped out by those ominous Ender Men.
After digging a very inefficient hole near my house and gather up more resources (cobblestone) than I could handle, I decided to venture out and build a bi

It's simple and I won't bore you with 42819203 paragraphs and bullcrap.
So here's what's going on. I am in need of a new OC for my upcoming webcomic and as you know, I am crap at designing OCs and their clothes THEREFORE, I NEED YOUR HELP.
What you must DO
Design a an outfit for a NEW Original Character.

You must design an outfit with clothes that are futuristic looking. Example of my OCs in this webcomic:
You can even border on fantasy looking designs e.g.
BUT PLEASE DON'T OVERDO IT and make the character look like s/he's belongs to a dragon age.
Here is a very good example:

The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneySaw The Hobbit last night. It was very good... if a bit long. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for seeing all the little details interconnecting The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings and all that, but for the average watcher... eh... it kinda dragged. I overheard several people saying they fell asleep during the film, and I noticed more than once a number of people fidgeting and looking at their watches. Still, it's a damn fine movie and It's a shame we have to wait so long for the next two films.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having The Hobbit being written during the beginning of Lord of the Rings is pretty smart. You could effectively watch the 3 Hobbit movies and then immediately move right into the 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Kudos to Jackson for that, it'll be great to marathon run the two trilogies back to back.
This movie was, like the book, much lighter and funnier than The Lord of the Rings and I was surprised at how much from the books they actually kept. They

Noah and The Winter Solider DiscussionNoahNoah and The Winter Solider Discussion1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve already mentioned that I enjoyed Noah in a previous journal, but after talking with friends and family and reading reviews online I feel inclined to bring it up again. See, Noah is under a HUGE assault like no other movie in recent years has been. On one side Christians are lambasting it for deviating too much from the sanitized version of Noah’s Ark they’re familiar with and “removing god” from the storyline (I’ll get back to why that’s ridiculous in a minute), while atheists are lambasting it as more of the same “Christianity propaganda” they’ve worked so hard to avoid. The bottom line being that BOTH sides are refusing to see the movie due to their ideological beliefs.
And that’s just sad.
Noah is not a perfect film, but it’s still one that I think everyone should watch, both religious and non. Noah is, at it’s core, an interpretation of the classic story by an amazing film mak

But one of the coolest things about nerdfighteria is that we have our own minecraft server called... wait for it: Nerdcrafteria!
Nerdcrafteria is one of the most awesome Minecraft servers I have ever participated in. The server is broken up into several different worlds. The Main World, The Nether, Minington, and Gladitorial. All of the worlds have borders around them preventing players from roaming too far and making the strain on the server too much to handle, but all of the worlds are also massive enough that you likely won't notice.
The Various Worlds
The main world is where towns and cities exist. You cannot break blocks here except on town plots that you purchase with the server's equivalent to money = Llamas. This helps prevent griefers from destroying all your hard work and gives you a place to call home. If you don't have enough

More Greek mythology in Portal?Just a minor edit to this: This is actually appliable only to the Portal 1 series I was just amazed that greek mythology CAN be applied to the first game just as it was obviously applied to Portal 2.More Greek mythology in Portal?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After answering a comment on DevArt I realized that Rattmann's and Chell's story is much like the story of Ariadne and Theseus. Doug being Ariadne and Chell Theseus who is suppose to kill the Minotaur, aka, GLaDOS.
His scribblings in the Portal 1 game were unicolor (red) - much like the most paintings depict Ariadne's thread to be red-colored. Also, the whole Aperture building is like a maze and at some point you have to rely on his drawings (the thread) to find the right way through.
All this leads to the Minotaur - the ultimate boss, GLaDOS.
Ariadne also fell in love with Theseus on first sight - much like Rattmann had endeared Chell as his only hope even though he barely knew her.
Ariadne had eloped with Theseus (just like Rattmann was supp

Writing and Characters in a Mafia-like Setting
Ok, so no one here has ever been in an actual mafia, nor do we want to make it too dark, but as a group we still need to have some kind of plausible standard for exactly what our mafia is like. In order to establish this median, and thus render the plot wholly more realistic, research is needed!
Here I've provided a few links for you to get started. I highly recommend all members, accepted or not, look at this; we will be doing more faction-oriented things later on so it's important to understand the dynamics within each group!
