finally as promised i made a video demonstration about painting a picture in photoshop.
i started from scratch, made a sketch in photoshop and from there started painting. for the overall image it took me 3 hrs so i was rushing a bit, so please exuse anatomiocal mistakes.
Also, i started off with only basic brushes, and i made advanced ones as the video progressed. that way i wanted to show you various purpose for different brushes and how to use them.
i didnt put any text in this demonstration, since this is just for viewing the process, but i plan on making shorter - mo

This is what I would call an awkward movie. It has the big budget set pieces of an action movie, the sterile camera work of a romantic comedy, the colorfulness and style of a comic book adaptation, and the goofy acting and script of a parody. I can't tell if it wants to take itself seriously or make us laugh with it's "wit." I can't tell if it wants to have decent action, or just a bunch of quick cuts. It's very hard for me to pin down what this movie was trying to be.
There are moments when it seems like they're trying to copy The Princess Bride (one line in particular was lifted right from it), Indiana Jones (rivalry between colleagues over treasure where Indy always loses), The DaVinci Code (secret vaults and amazing machines), Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Kahn (submarine like battle in a nebula of clouds), Mr. and Mrs Smith (two competent secret agents who love each other), and Mission Impossible (tower heists and elaborate schemes). Unfortunately, it neve

For most of you, this journal is unimportant. it's just me talking about some notes I received. so you can just skip it.
I'm making this journal because I got a really big number of these cases.
it goes like this:
person A (a Muslim) starts a discussion with person B (Islam hater).
then when the discussion reaches a level where A seems to be blocked or can't provide strong arguments or is faced with insults and strong language, A comes to me and asks me to intervene in order to "convince" B.
My usual reply to this specific kind of requests is to decline and refuse to help. simply because I believe this is wrong for the following reasons:
1- if you don't have enough knowledge to engage in a debate, you shouldn't. you risk giving wrong facts and false information about the subject.
2- it's not a good habit to start things that you can't finish. if you always count on others to help you, you'll never learn enou

20K Pageviews, and Thank You!Hello, friends!20K Pageviews, and Thank You!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I opened this account more than four years ago, to read and write Assassin's Creed fanfiction. I certainly didn't expect it to become such an important part of my life. So many new friends, talented artists, readers have entered my life; and I have had the honour of a Daily Deviation twice. It is an emotion I will never forget.
Out of all the websites where I post my works, deviantART is certainly my favourite. This is where I found the most chances to exchange opinions, to make my writing known and find others' works - even more than Tumblr, where it gets lost in the endless dashboards we all have.
I've been wanting to give special thanks to several people for a while now, and my 20k pageviews just seemed like the perfect chance.
First off, there is a group of Deviants I want to thank sincerely. You are the ones who follow my updates regularly, who never miss a single story; I smile when I see your notifications, and even in the case we have never talked I always
Internet Copyrights 101Since there was an app recently on Facebook which resulted in numerous copyright infringements and legal issues, I figured now would be a good time to refresh everyone on basic internet copyright rules.

Follow the TOS
This should be self explanatory, but please follow the Terms of Service agreements you signed for whatever website you're currently on. Not all websites have the same rules and restrictions in their TOS and you should treat each site individually and not expect that since you got away with something on one site means you'll get away with it on another. Most websites do not allow uploading of content that is not your own.

A lot of copyright infringement happens because people don't bother to take the time to ask the original creators if it's alright to repost. It usually doesn't take much effort to send an e-mail or note asking for pe

That's a screenshot from this kickass little Sci-Fi short called The Leviathan, it's made by Ruairí Robinson and you can find it here, [link], and it looks awesome!
As far as I can gather it's about humans hunting giant space whales, possibly in the atmosphere of a gas giant, which would make it even cooler
This has to be turned into a movie. Seriously if we're getting another 4 Adam Sandler movies this year, can we please just get this one movie about a huge alien space whale? please? pretty please!?

The Street Photography of Chris Weeks
It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

What is this? Jessik all prettied up and feminine?! DUN DUN DUUUUN!!
Reckless here! So Charge and I are working on a lot of serious 40k stuff, Chooser of the Dying, Ghoul Stars Conspiracy and some other stuff that is yet to be named, lots of Grim Dark Goodness. However, before we take off and get down to business with the more serious themed stuff I'm gonna be doing a few more silly/ecchi pieces. The idea is Jessik is about to be deployed, in more ways than one as the stories she's involved with are all very grim, so why not let her live it up a little before we put her through hell eh?
So, looming on the near horizon look forward to some fun mostly OOC art while we gear up for the big stuff.

The Sorcerer's Dragon - SynopsisTo Whomever This May Concern,The Sorcerer's Dragon - Synopsis2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've actually been receiving a lot of questions about what The Sorcerer's Dragon is about from those who have recently found my page and I wanted to be able to post up the synopsis for my book. I'm also in contract with Whiskey Creek Press to get this published and I'm still waiting to hear on the release date for it. I've been working on this story project longer than I've been a member on deviantART. This story is important to me and so are all of the characters that I've created and other friends' characters that are in Selena's and Thor's adventures as well.
The Sorcerer's Dragon is only the 1st out of 4 books total in my series, the Armageddon Series.
The Dark Knights' Betrayal, book 2 of the Armageddon Series
The Apocalyptic War, book 3 of the Armageddon Series
Armageddon, book 4
For those interested, here is the synopsis for Book 1:
The One Hundred Years War destroyed everything.

Real Life Developer Brick WallsLost Silver was a very simple game for me to finish. I already had the base engine done before I even HEARD about Lost Silver. All I had to do for Lost Silver was the maps, the NPC's, the graphics (some of them at least), the sounds, and the Pokemon data (unown levels, shiny). With most of the work done by the engine I previously had, Lost Silver was a piece of cake.Real Life Developer Brick Walls1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Cursed Black is NOT that piece of cake.
I started the engine from scratch on November 2010 or 2011.. it's been so long I can't even remember. Ever since then, my college classes have been taking a big toll of my time. None of you know this, but I'm shooting to get a Bachelors of Science in Biology. Biology, for those who are studying, takes up a FUCKTON of time to study because of term memorization and understanding concepts that almost seem surreal and fake until you see them applied in real life. That's mostly taking up most of my time -- college.
I also live on my own now, so I have to work way more hours to keep my apa
Returning characters in new R&C GameHello group members and watcher, if you haven't heard yet then Insomniac has announced that a new game called Ratchet & Clank Into the Nexus. Insomniac say the game will have their traditional elements like the games before All 4 One and Full Frontal. They also say the games suppose to be a epilogue to the R&C Future series. Not only will old character like the Smuggler, Cronk, and Zephyr will make an apperance but Talwyn Apogee will make a appearance since Quest for Booty. I believe it was people like us who brought her back as a main character and we should be happy about that.
