3D Printing with Bees3D Printing with Bees8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
How awesome is this? Dewar's (the whiskey brand) created an ad campaign that used bees as a "3D printer" ...or as they called it "3-B printing." They created shells of the sculpture they wanted to create and let 80,000 bees loose inside of it. Over time, the bees created beautiful honeycomb sculptures.
Nice work Dewar's and the agencies behind the campaign, Sid Lee New York and The Ebeling Group!
Suddenly realize X and Y is a fairy taleI just realize how much X & Y is based on a kind of medieval / RPG / or something like that, with 3 starters turning into Pokémon that resembles a Tank, Mage, Rogue, and also a Pokemon who actually is a sword, and a new type which is Fairy.Suddenly realize X and Y is a fairy tale1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We have also seen a lot of castle like buildings, in the videos and screenshot there has been shown.
Sounds like Fantasy, knights, magic and fairy tales to me!

The PS4 will not be backwards compatible with the PS3, may cost somewhere between five and six hundred dollars, will focus on social media, and have a touchpad on the controller…… I'm done. I. Am. Done. For the first time in my life, I am definitely, most assuredly, without even so much as a quark's worth of doubt, not buying a Sony console. Welcome to the wonderful world of PC gaming, self, because we, are fucking DONE.
I can already hear the defenders of the faith firing up their excuse cannons so let me just make this clear right now- I don't want to hear it. I've put up with Sony's bullshit for well over a decade and I already know every single goddamn thing you'll say verbatim down to the fucking inflection. I too was once a defender of the faith. I once had my very own Defense of Sony's Stupid Bullshit Cannon, firing off excuses into the massive, tumultuous SEA of legitimate complaints, well-founded detractions, and scathing, ac
Assassin's CRAP III(Contains spoilers for every main game in the AC series.)Assassin's CRAP III2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a longtime fan of the Assassin's Creed series going all the way back to ACI which, despite its extreme threadbareness, was a game I found enjoyable. There's nothing quite like parkouring around the Middle Eastern holy lands stabbing religious zealots in the head and accruing massive piles of dead bodies to the extent that the game engine starts yelling OH MY !@#$%^&*ING GOD, ENOUGH ALREADY and deletes them because it can't render your carnage-mountain without shitting its framerate. ACI was not the greatest in terms of gameplay mechanics but the story was interesting and I liked it despite its flaws and shortcomings.
ACII was my favorite in the series. It introduced air-assassinations and pulling shitheads into bales of hay for covert stabination, among other things. The highlight of that game for me was jumping down from a high ledge like a demented howler monkey, landing knife-first on some bitch's head, then running away

looking back to about a year ago i had doodled a very rough sketch in my sketch book of a girl walking an octopus. and when i say rough i mean rough. the sketch itself was nothing more than a study of contrasting silhouettes. i was drawn to the play between a very rigid character and a squiggly one.
i had forgotten about that sketch until i heard about a steampunk t-shirt design for www.welovefine.com. i thought that this design might have a chance so i went ahead and finished it off. well it got alot of attention and i am happy to say that it won the competition. the shirt started to sell

This just made me realize even more why I do this.
So many young girls have a distorted picture of what a healthy beautiful body looks like. A beautiful body comes in many sizes and shapes, but not by not eating...
I just wanted to make sure, that even though im pro-curves, that doesn't mean I don't find skinny girls beautiful, heck I think skinny girls can look absolutely gorgeous at times, my personal preference is just curves, on me and other women.
It's so incredibly sad that so many young girls think that they are supposed to starve themselves to look attractive, instead of just being you, and being happy and a good person. With this, beauty comes naturally.
And anorexia is terrible. It's a very serious disease, which leads to death in many cases.
So to get to the point, another reason why I do this, is to spread the good vibe about being

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.

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

Joining UDON?Easily the most asked questions we get here on our DeviantArt site via private Notes is whether or not UDON is hiring new artists or how to go about joining our crew.Joining UDON?8 years ago in Personal More Like This
We're not currently looking for any more artists to join UDON. We have enough artists to tackle large corporate projects and don't want too many mouths to feed. If that changes and we're looking to expand again, we'll let you all know here on the site.
In the mean time, if you want to improve your work and reach a professional level, look to the following:
- Quite simply, is your artwork at a professional level? Be absolutely honest with yourself when analyzing your work. It's a very competitive field and weak spots in your work can severely hinder your ability to finding regular jobs.
- Do you have a strong grasp of proportion/perspective? Being able to draw solid-looking characters and environments is crucial. Are your environments as well thought out and designed as your characters? Can you place c

My university, CSUB, has this really neat "Campus Gamers" club that coordinates free public events every year. One of their charity events is called "Extra Life," where they raise thousands of dollars for the Lauren Small Children's Medical Center at Bakersfield Memorial Hospital, which is part of the Children's Miracle Network of hospitals. Campus Gamers was able to raise $10,000 last year and they aim to raise $16,000 this year.
I was so touched seeing them buy a booth at my local con just to sign up people of all ages for "Extra Life."
I'd like to help them in any way I can with the donations, so I'll be selling my prints

Exercise 19: BraidingTHIS WEEK's EXERCISE POST : THE FULL POST AND DETAILSExercise 19: Braiding1 year ago in Personal More Like This
EXERCISE: Create 5 examples of braiding on the given worksheet
Braiding is more than just a hairstyle for girls. Braiding refers to the overlapping and look of intersecting strands whether it be hair, leather, chain link, etc. This is a simple exercise one you understand the way different strands lay over each other. This isn’t to say men can’t have braids either. Look at the Lord of the Ring movies for example, and how they treat braids on male characters. The “look” of braiding can also be found in armor, clothing, and accessories. It is a simple yet basic skill to have at your disposal.
What should you look at for doing this exercise?
What “trick” you will use to remember how to place the braids. Either remember the zig-zig in the m

All this talk about "OMG SLUGBOX YOU CAN'T USE COPYRIGHTED CHARACTERS IN A PRONO!" has led me to write a journal entry to you all about this. I've hung around the law school in town long enough to know how this works, and beyond that, went through PLENTY of research (weeks) to arrive at my decision to, in the future, release a My Little Pony inspired Pin-Up series. For sale. YES, I said for SALE.
As a GENERAL OVERVIEW, Parody falls under our First Amendment (that's freedom of speech) Rights. That's Fair Use law.
BUT!! You CAN'T just outright use copyright characters willy nilly and get away with it. That's not parody, that's theft and copyright violation. A PARODY MUST COMMENT ON AND REFERENCE ITS ORIGINAL MATERIAL TO BE LEGALLY CLASSIFIED AS PARODY, AND BE PROTECTED BY LAW. It must acknowledge it, to a clearly distinguishable extent! While you might THINK it's a good idea to "completely change names," it's often not. If you d

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.
