There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
From the Exorcist through Paranormal Activity, generation after generation of “believers” seem to have come to the reali

My father is leaving ItalyFinally he' s leaving Italy.My father is leaving Italy2 years ago in Personal More Like This
God dammit, he' s leaving Italy.
Why Id I start with these two sentences?
Because one is the opposite of the other; with a simple and clean why.
He told me already he is leaving the Island. he told because his work is killing with a low salary and because there' s nobody loving him anymore, that he needs to be with his family, to leve Italy for a vacation, for a break.
I am happy he is: last time he did, I lived normally, without reciving his bad calls, without hearing that accusing voice of a bad father, without one of the worst men I know around.
Bad because... I don' t want him to leave.
I have the suspect, he won0 rt come back this time, that he will leave permanently.
People started even to call me "Prostitute" but not because I am one (NEVER) but because when I' m with him, I "Act like one":
When he feels to pik me up, he comes and I go with him. I become so fancy, nice and I fake to be a beloved daughter of him, even if he doesn' t love me and
advice on some stuff to look up before tutorialsso im gonna be starting to make some tutorials soonadvice on some stuff to look up before tutorials3 years ago in Personal More Like This
before that you should look up some informations
you probably noticed that in my work it is often hard to distinguish if im using a zbrush model or just painined it all in photoshop
reason for that is simple.
my realism rendering is greatly based on 3 d rendering processes.
by this i mean as i learned 3d i became aware of the stuff we usually visually take for granted.
qualities of material, importance of reflectivity, ambient occlusion, and subsurface scattering.
to any 3d artist these are everyday terms, while 2d artists usually paint them without often even being aware of wheat they are really doing
for instance , a 3d artist will at any given point use 2 types of shadows. cast shadows from a direct lightsource, and ambient occlusion shadows which naturally appear more intensively the closer planes of an object are together.
i can get into this and make it a long discussion , but easier w

An update from Dave...After 6 months of looking into my legal options, I am no longer pursuing legal action against the person who has made heinous accusations against me. I was advised it would be too difficult and expensive to pursue action against a person who does not live in the same country as me, nor could it be enforced by Australian law.An update from Dave...2 months ago in Personal More Like This
So now, I no longer have to be quiet and can now address these outrageous allegations against me, specifically regarding my supposed involvement with Psyguy and the claims made against him.
He was my co-collaborator on GG-guys and Does A Thing, and I considered him a friend.
I am not responsible for the actions of Psy. I was not aware of, or informed of, any of the actions he has supposedly done. I did not enable him or encourage him. Psy makes his own choices.
Assuming the allegations are true, I do not condone his actions, and those claiming to be affected by him should take the necessary steps to seek legal action.

Better than the Disney version (Sarcastic edition)While Mowgli's brothers stuck closer to the original story than Disney's Jungle Book, it lacked somewhat in the production values and its running time. So if I was to choose one movie that improves on its Disney counterpart in every aspect, it would be Lion and the King by Dingo pictures.Better than the Disney version (Sarcastic edition)7 months ago in Personal More Like This
From the stunning animation, the amazing voice acting and its gripping story, this underrated classic needs to be fully appreciated as the masterpiece of cinema it truly is. Much better than that crappy knockoff which ripped off Hamlet and Kimba the White Lion.

Ranks & Occupations
Everyone needs a job in this Underground Eden, and if you don't pull your own weight you will be kicked out into the wastes. Our Eden has no space for the useless, even if we do allow the elders and pups to remain within our Eden
There are a bunch of different types of ranks in TDE. The first being Eden ranks, which spend most of their time in Eden, these dogs are considered civilians, and rarely if ever go out into the wasteland. The second being Convoy/Military ranks that spend time both in the wastes and eden, these are dogs more suited towards militant operations, and supply runs as they both protect Eden and explore the Wasteland. The third is Wasteland ranks, not part of a pack these dogs are generally either lone wastelanders or the unfortunate who don't have the strength to compete in a pack environment, and then finally there is the raider ra

PE Feedback: How to Give a CritiqueHOW TO GIVE A CRITIQUEPE Feedback: How to Give a Critique3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's a great thing that you want to critique other deviant's works and help them improve their skills through your constructive feedback. By critiquing fellow deviant's works, you are developing your critical thought and vision and thus, developing yourself as an artist. However, critiquing is not all about pointing out what others did wrong. As ChewedKandi has pointed out in 'How To: Critiquing Artwork' "a critique is giving your opinion in a constructive manner about a subject - be it a piece a music, a piece of art, the meal you've just ate and so on."
That's the main point of this article: to share a few pointers on how to give a quality critique while providing links to a compilation of useful guides that focus on this very same topic.
Introduction: Let's start!
First things first! You've come across a piece of art that caught your attention and
New exciting information!A recent update from Michael Dimartino Tumblr posting "More Korra excitment! Some more sneak peeks of book 2 characters. Desna, Eska, and Varrick."New exciting information!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First up, Desna (left) and Eska (right) , Korra’s cousins:
DESNA (Waterbender), ESKA (Waterbender)
Korra’s cousins are sixteen year-old twins who have a strange connection and seem to communicate without saying a word. They’re both Waterbenders, and when they work together they can accomplish amazing feats, such as shooting entire icebergs at opponents. Korra has always found them incredibly annoying because they look down on her for being a rube from the South, even though she’s the Avatar.
Next up, shipping magnate and facial hair enthusiast Varrick, presumably not to be confused with the Dragon Age character of the same name:
Billionaire shipping magnate from the Southern Water Tribe. He’s a little eccentric, but very charismatic. He sp
