CONCEPT OF: Project OffsetWelcome to our periodic spotlight feature where we take a look at the concept art and design of a game or film. The intent here is to get the creative juices flowing, remind people what's out there and what's being done, and to not lose sight of the quality of professional work. We can also discuss what works and maybe what doesn't, what you dig, or what you DONT dig.CONCEPT OF: Project Offset6 years ago in Personal More Like This

What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Artists Beware!! Thieves Trying To Steal PasswordsCopied & pasted from: :iconyuuza:Artists Beware!! Thieves Trying To Steal Passwords2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every once in a while i get someone trying to hack into my facebook or deviantart. Lately someone sent me a link to a fake tumblr log in screen trying to steal my tumblr password. that person is obsidianwingsofmidnight.tumblr.com
Yes, i am making this public so that people know what kind of person obsidianwingsofmidnight is and be aware of messages from him/her.
this person claims they were hacked as well. That might or might not be true, either way i don't want to go hunting them down, just be careful of ANYONE sending you links, especially people you never talked to before.
A note for every deviant out there.
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM PASSWORD THIEVES:
1. Start out by having a very strong password. Having passwords that have numbers and symbols (*!@#$%) is a great way to start, but a sure way of having a strong password is just having a very long one. I saw an article where it said that nothin
Happy New YearLet's all start the year off with some stuff I wish I had growing up:Happy New Year2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I read an article last night on people who are mentally strong and the DO NOTS of being that person.
I took those notes, and listed them, including how I learned to overcome these obstacles. It's a long read, sorry, but I figured this year it's time to open up and share that knowledge that I was once taught by someone I consider my mentor, business partner and bestfriend, Stephan.
1. Don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself - I used to feel this way as a kid. I was a child of divorce, and used it as a crutch when I was younger. I hate a (mentally) abusive step-mom who would constantly take me down. I began to feel that maybe it was true, and I wasn't going to be the person I wanted to be.
You can't think that way. No one likes or enjoys a Debbie Downer. Someone who is constantly on the negative or pining for sympathy. I began to overcome these complications with art or writing. Using tha

How to Plot Like a GrimIn ten simple steps, you too can plot like a Grim.How to Plot Like a Grim3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
1. Get an idea
This can be a brief snippet of dialogue. Or an ending that just seems perfect. Sometimes it's just the concept of what I'd like to see a character go through. I write that down. Usually it doesn't see the cold light of day for at least a couple months, but when I've thought about it long enough and can't seem to get the idea out of my head, that's when I sit down and start plotting things out a bit.
2. Work out the basic plot
Now that I've got the idea, I need to work out the basic details. But how do I do that? Well, I write it down. Then I think about the different angles to get to that idea. I write those down. If it's dialogue, who's talking? What do they feel? Who are they talking to? If it's a snippet of a scene, who's in the scene? Why are they there? What are they doing? What's going on outside of that scene?

Nuzlocke-Challenge Awards time!!!So, I've been teasing at it for a while, and now I think it's time to officially open our first awards events! Get excited people! It's time to recognize the best of what our community has to offer. =-)Nuzlocke-Challenge Awards time!!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
***DISCLAIMER: this awards event is not tied in to the Year-End Extravaganzas held by the official Nuzlocke forums in any way! Different organizers, and different pools of members, as we know many people here on dA are not on the official forums. We've also specifically tried to highlight different kinds of awards to distance ourselves from the Extravaganzas - that's why there are less skill-based awards here and more community-oriented awards - and why we're doing this in summer instead of winter. We're not trying to compete with the forums at all. They'd crush us anyway. X-D***

Ranking System-----------------Ranking System3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Ranking Ladder
CANNON FODDER: Lacky (Trieste), Omega (Fogna), Sharkbait (Sorte), Novus (Fiume)
This is the starting rank for all new members. These are at the very bottom of the pecking order. At this stage you get no perks, and are likely to be picked on by those who outrank you, since you have yet to prove your loyalty and usefulness. These guys are a dime a dozen, so don't try and mouth of to any of the higher-ups, or you'll be on your ass and out of the door within seconds.
GRUNT: Associate (Trieste), Vagabond (Fogna), Rascal (Sorte), Optio (Fiume)
Your first rank-up. You're little better off now! At this stage you've shown you're sort of useful and capable of following orders. You will be expected to undertake sparring with higher-ranked dogs to improve your fighting skills, and you'll start to receive better missions.
MID: Soldato Bosso (Trieste), Gamma (Fogna), Hoodlum (Sorte), Centurion (Fiume)
