Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:

The Art of Self-Promotion brrr .__.Hay bbys<3,The Art of Self-Promotion brrr .__.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's summer again: time for my yearly journal update lol;;
It's been a busy year of balancing my work for the university with training to become a pro recurve archer and, perhaps most challengingly, actively pushing my art. I got to know some really cool people in business and entrepreneurship, as well as amazingly successful and inspiring artists like Brosa, and I must say their mentality has really made me reevaluate the art world and my role in it.
The business mentality is one of attaining success as measured by public interest, whereas artists tend to focus on improving for themselves. The idea here is that "if I can get my art to a point where I am happy with it, the rest of the world will see it and just follow". I was a firm believer in this, thinking the quality of art should speak for itself, and always feeling anxiety central at the thought of spamming people too much with my work. However, I've realized this way of thinking is flawed f

My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.

Hobbit ConHey there,Hobbit Con1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve been asked to submit some pictures from the HobbitCon2.
Unfortunately, most of the rather few pictures I made are quite crappy for I asked too much of my simple camera.
Also my best friend, who went with me, said if I submit any pictures featuring her, there will be trouble.
And when a gnome like me made any pictures from the stage, there were always quite a lot of heads in the way, plus I forgot completely to make any photos on the first day.
So have mercy on the little I can show you.

The immature version of a barbary drake (adults coming soon), they're so named for their barbarous nature (mind your fingers). Barbaries are voracious eaters, and when full grown quite capable of tackling prey larger than itself (mind you there isn't too much larger than a full grown barbary). Hatchlings display a wide variety of colour patterns, often in outrageous combinations. These bright, distinctive pelts are thought to advertise the immature drake's venomous nature to any would-be predators. Although somewhat unpredictable in captivity, whelps imprinted at hatching can be domesticated with some measure of success.

You gave us a few of Blaze's and Penn's abilities in the past but I decided that it wasn't good enough for me, so I fleshed their powers out some more by taking their skills and physical and spiritual properties of fire into account.

Life at the moment -Last night Israel agreed and signed on a humanity ceasefire, which earlier today was even extended until 00:00 tonight. Yet even still, just now, Sunday morning here in Israel, Hamas has broken the ceasefire by shooting more missiles towards us. I can not tell you how terrifying the situation is for someone who actually live in this situation for 20 days of war, and more so, for years upon years of living under the constant threat of Hamas missiles (more than 12,000 rockets were shot towards Israel in the last 12 years!). At the same time I cannot explain to you the sadness I feel towards innocent civilians in Gaza who also live under the terror regime of Hamas, who constantly and deliberately using them as a human-shield and as leverage for its own propaganda!Life at the moment -10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Most denizens of the West think of New Zealand as a little known outpost of civilization somewhere beyond Australia at the ends of the Earth.
Could any land be any farther from the European motherland, birthplace of the Renaissance that is the Genesis-point of the visual arts narrative we continue expanding and evolving today? And yet this remote country of islands in the Pacific has suddenly become a cinematic storytelling powerhouse, a film-friendly factory for the creation of some of the most important touchstone mass entertainment experiences to influence our popular culture in recent years.

Recoloristas sueltos en DeviantART.Hola, gente;Recoloristas sueltos en DeviantART.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Escribo esto con la intención de convocarlos a leer esta entrada:
*Para empezar, ¿Qué son los recolors/recolores y los recoloristas?
Los recolores o recolors es el robo de una imagen con el fin de modificar sus colores o modificarla desde cero. En resumen, es un tipo de robo de arte que realizan algunas personas, el cuál consiste en modificar el dibujo de un personaje con fines de "crear su propio personaje", con la excusa de "no saber dibujar".Los recoloristas son las personas que se dedican a hacer este tipo de cosas, con fin de crear su personaje u otros fines para sus no creaciones.
Los recolores no son creaciones, es el robo de arte de otras personas. Por lo tanto, no es original, sino que es marcado como algo malintencionado.
*Ejemplo de recolorista: :iconscarface-15:*¿Está bien lo que hacen estas personas?
Definitivamente no está bien. No está bien
On the Subject of Tribute PiecesIn our time as a group, we have received pieces that were made as "tributes" to recent disasters. Pray for Japan pieces, Pray for Poland pieces, and of course, 9/11 pieces.On the Subject of Tribute Pieces3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As we have said before, we will not be accepting any of these pieces. In addition, we are instating a rule that all deviations must depict an event at least ten years old. Anything depicting an event that is less than ten years old is considered "current events" and does not belong in our group.
The reason we're doing this is because tribute pieces are really often in poor taste. Your intentions might be good, but when you make a tribute piece with Hetalia characters, it's kind of turning a tragedy into a fandom event.
Not to mention, most survivors of those events and even people who weren't affected directly by said events do get offended by Hetalia being used to depict tragedies that are all really still fresh wounds.
Think about all of this through the victims' perspectives. If you're moved to emotion because of

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
