INDIEGOGO ENDED!! Phase one is over!EDIT: 11/18/2014INDIEGOGO ENDED!! Phase one is over!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, as I said of tumblr, I want to thank everyone for their support! We collected almost 10000 through Indiegogo donation! I know it's far from what the goal is but don't worry! We are planing phase two of the campaign! We will not stop just because we didn't reach our goal out of a first try! We will fight until we finally get there!
To everyone who donated and shared the campaign: Thank you! Your support is what helped us get even this far, we really couldn't have done without you! ;u; As I said above, we will continue to fight until our goal is reached so we aren't stopping just yet!
I will update everyone once phase two starts and I will most likely reopen Special Order (and add new ideas for it). If I still owe you those, don't worry! I quite busy with the School Festival (which was a total success! The

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed i
In Memory of Satoru IwataToday it has came to my attention to inform you all that Satoru Iwata has sadly passed away a few nights ago from complications of a bile duct growth,his passing has affected many gamers emotionally,even if they previously haven't really supported his viewpoints w/ Nintendo,but bare in mind he helped forward Nintendo into the 21st century and has helped them strive on throughout the years he was president up until his untimely death. He was a humble and gentle spirit who had a steady mind to help keep the company alive with perseverance and helped bring Nintendo fans and gamers alike together,but now since his passing we've felt a big part in our gaming community just fall apart,but we must remember and reflect on how he helped reconfigure Nintendo from the time he began working with them in the 80's (helping out with games like Earthbound,Kirby and Pokemon,etc.) up until his passing and that all he has done for them and the community in general,we must be thankful for all the hard worIn Memory of Satoru Iwata5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Zeviant FartThere's nothing more I can add to the debate/communal rant currently taking place that has not already been said, other than repeat my opinion that, if something requires explanation, it's not art. This is doubly so when it comes to a logo, which is supposed to convey a message by way of a simplified image, be that message a name or a graphical representation of purpose and/or meaning.Zeviant Fart1 year ago in Personal More Like This

After the success of "What if Gravity Falls was an anime", I made another one which was longer and more insane than the previous:
But I wasn't able to finish it without the huge support of my fans over on Patreon!
The huge surprise is that the creator of The Amazing World of Gumball, Ben Bocquelet, retweeted my fan animation!
And I'm so happy that it reached and featured on Cartoon Brew, a site I watch to check for news about cartoons and animations.
Not only that, the number of my Patrons doubled since the release of the animation!
Thank you everyone for your love and support!

So, you like to kill things?Watch any kind of Bear-Grylls-let’s-drink-some-tasty-urine survival show on TV and the pee-swilling host will invarably bring up the matter of humans detaching and distancing themselves from the source of their food.

As with anything in the first world: if we can pay people to do it for us, we do. There’s nothing wrong with this, nor is there anything wrong with electing to hunt down your own food.
There is, however, something very wrong with hunting down and killing an animal just for the sake of it, be it a common deer or something more exotic:
“Hunting is a legitimate sport!” Some people will no doubt cry, while stroking their favourite firearm.
No. It’s not.
Waiting for an animal to wander over to the bait you laid out for it so you can shoot it in its dumb face with a ranged weapon from your beer-can littered sitting position will NEVER be a “sport”.
I don't fave watermarks.I’ve harped on about this before and I’m going to do it again…..and again and again…..until people stop doing it.I don't fave watermarks.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I do not fave pictures that have watermarks right across them.
This isn’t me being monumentally arrogant and thinking that I alone faving a piece of work bestows upon it some kind of greatness. This is just me having an artistic eye.
If you’ve slaved to create the most astounding piece of work to have ever graced the galleries of deviantart, something that puts all your peers to shame and will remain a benchmark that others aim to match for years to come…..and then across the middle of it you decide to slap a watermark that you spent 5 minutes farting out: you just f**ked up your artwork. You have added something that detracts from my enjoyment of the piece and I’m not going to fave it.
There are a number of brilliant artists out there who I’m on the verge of unfollowing, simply because it irks me so much to see a

Now, I don’t know a huge amount about Tom Preston (AKA Andrew Dobson), I’m just aware of the sketchy details: he drew fetish stuff, he tried to deny it, he posted some incendiary journal entries and some people claim his art is no good.
Excluding the denial part, that sounds eerily familiar to my online shtick. The only difference seems to be in our approach to faceless internet hate. Where TP appears to have taken it very, very personally, thus fanning the flames, I treated mine for what it was: faceless.
That’s the first thing you should always remember when reading through comments about your work: everybody is a phantom. An avatar with a silly name. Their comments could be good, their comments could be bad, but ultimately, unless you’re certain the individual behind them has some in
How to Remove that GHASTLY Orange 'Core' TagDeviantArt seems to be raising the price of premium membership, and are now renaming it to what I'm sure they were hoping would be indicative of their pseudo-edgy brand, but in reality, is just confusing the hell out of people.

Christ I'm old.
Now, I don't have a problem with dA changing their prices. Inflation is a real thing, and a business has to do what it must to stay afloat. What astounds me, though, they're making such a big deal out of it. Aren't you supposed to not have some big front-page celebration of raising prices? Aren't you just supposed to sneak it in, not say a word, and hope nobody really notices? And if people do raise a fuss, make some business-ey statement about "operating costs" and "economic trends" in some big-worded pile of lip service to quell the peasant folk?
And not only are they making a big deal out of it

What I've been up to since Sunday? NOTHING. I honestly needed a bit of a break, especially since I don't have much time for it. Next event is in couple of months and it's gonna be hella big, if not, I will be busier than ever.

[WIP] Metal Sonic[WIP] Metal Sonic3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I finished the model, some of the rigging stuff and some basic materials.
I tried to stay sort of close to the official model (like always) but I made some slight changes here and there. (like always )
-The shoulder pads are bigger and have a more defined, sharper form
-The eyeball is very reflective, unlike the pitch black one in official renders
-The thighs and upper arms have a slightly different shape
-The armor on shins and lower arms are sharper with more distinct edges
-Small additional air vents on the back (not visible here)
Instead of a regular metal material I went for a car paint look for the blue and the red materials. I think it looks better, what do you think?

For f**k’s sake. Terrorists are not under your bed. They are not hiding around every corner. They are not in the seat next to you. The few that are out there only win if you start to think they might be.
In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

Avoid UbisoftA while back, just after I had completed whichever iteration of Assassin’s Creed involved the pirate guy, I said that Watchdogs was probably going to be a crap game. A number of people said I was wrong to badmouth a game without playing it, but my argument was that you could gauge the quality of an upcoming title by the studio/publisher’s previous output. With that in mind, it’s fairly obvious that Ubisoft’s preferred method is to dazzle the weaker minded with pretty, pretty graphics in order to sell as many copies as possible before someone points out that the game actually plays like a dog (which – what ho - is exactly what Watchdogs did).Avoid Ubisoft1 year ago in Personal More Like This
