Found something usefulThis is probably of no importance for you guys/girls. but I just wanted to share with you something about me:Found something useful3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I am happy. Alhamdulillah I got a couple of useful things that I was seeking for a long time:
first, I got the copy of the whole Qur'anic manuscript of the Topcapi Museum (Turkey). the manuscript is attributed to the Khalifah Uthman ibn-Affan -may Allah be pleased with him-. it's one of the few eldest surviving manuscripts of the Qur'an. COOL
second, I also got an edited copy identical to the original of the whole Qur'anic manuscript of Tashkent (Samarkand), another one of the Qur'ans attributed to Uthman and one of the few eldest copies... COOL AGAIN
I need these manuscript copies in order to analyze the oldest available copies and compare with the current ones. now that I have a copy at hand, I can check by myself (and debunk) the claims of some people that the Qur'an was not preserved.
Third, I could finally find the whole Revised standard Version (RSV) of t

Mini Character Design interviewSomeone that is working toward her thesis in Character Design asked me for a mini interview. Here's the interview, for those who are interested:Mini Character Design interview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When did you start with character design and what motivated you?
WHEN I WENT TO CALARTS, ONE OF THE CLASSES I HAD WAS A "CHARACTER DESIGN" CLASS. MIKE GIAMO, WHO IS A GREAT TALENT, TAUGHT IT. I HAD ALWAYS LOVED DRAWING CHARACTERS AND MAKING UP MY OWN, BUT SOME OF THE PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN HE TAUGHT US REALLY OPENED MY EYES TO HOW MUCH MORE I NEEDED TO LEARN. I GOT HOOKED IN THAT CLASS, BUT IT WASN'T UNTIL YEARS LATER, WHILE AT DISNEY ANIMATION, THAT I STARTED TO ACTUALLY DO CHARACTER DESIGN PROFESSIONALLY.
What are your main resources for inspiration?
ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING. I LOVE GREAT ANIMATION STYLE ARTWORK SO I HAVE A LARGE COLLECTION OF OTHER ARTISTS' SKETCHBOOKS AS WELL AS MOST ALL OF THE "ART OF" DISNEY, SONY, DREAMWORKS, AND PIXAR BOOKS. THEN THERE IS THE IN

Imagination Is Limited.Have a look at this.Imagination Is Limited.8 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's not so good, actually. Can you believe that it took the artist TEN years of constant drawing practice until she was able to draw this?
I believe it, because I'm the one who drew it. I was eleven years old, and had been drawing all my life because it was fun. Because it was an improvement compared to what I drew at age seven, I used to believe that improvement would magically come by itself if one just kept drawing from their imagination, and doing nothing else. New forms and understandings of anatomy would coincidentally happen to come, little by little. Hadn't it been like that for all those years? From my drawings I could see that I didn't know how to draw an arm correctly, but I believed that if I would draw the arm over and over again from my imagination, the arm would suddenly look better at some point because I had invented a new way to draw it.
Needless to say that improvement is painfully slow when you draw from your imagination exclusively. I met an a

When I last visited home, I found some neat old drawings I did when I was a kid, so I’ve been having some fun redrawing them. These are from the very late 80s and/or the very early 90s. Most of them were villains for a Go-Rama video game that was essentially a ripoff of Super Mario Bros 2. Skull-Man was definitely a proposed Robot Master. I don’t know if this was for the Nintendo Power Mega Man contest or not. It’s probably too old to be that.

A. The Purpose
B. My Ultimate Goal
The purpose I had in mind as I created this is in two parts. Firstly, I wanted to see people create awesome art and enjoy themselves. I don't care who wins. I will not even see the names when I'm voting (my judges may, but I won't the way I will). I will be also joining in with you guys as well making my own contributions (any judge's contribution will not be placed in the contest).
My Ultimate Goal
My second and complete dream for this contest is to take all the entries and create a really epic art book. For this to happen, I will mandate that a minimal of 20 medium to high quality art be submitted. This is the soul of the contest is creating an art book, so I'm working tirelessly to promote to both clubs and individual deviants to get that many entries and much more.

It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

His Books of Blood in the 1980s established him as a premier master of the horror narrative, on an equal level or even surpassing Stephen King, who said of him;
I have seen the future of horror, his name is Clive Barker.
Like King, Barker’s works of horror have been adopted and adapted for movies, his stories becoming the basis for the Hellraiser and Candyman series and many more. Beyond his stories being used as source material, Barker has worked as screenwriter, producer, actor and director in the film world.

The game is good and with some polishing and fixing some bugs "the engine is it's worst issue though it's not so bad" this could make a great remake of Sonic 1, but what i liked best in the game is the sprites, i always wished if someone has ripped Sonic sprites from the game, so i looked over and over but i wasn't lucky enough to find any!
Anyway i decided to rip them myself, it took me four of hours but i managed to rip them all, i apologize for any missing sprites
I'm not sure who made these sprites but credits goes to "Kieran the Hedgehog", "Edward the Cat", "Alones" and "Fast the Hedgehog" for the sprites!
For those who aren't familiar with the game here's the official trailer in Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGvrk_rbC5s

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta
