What must any of us do before we can understand what we read in the Book of Life? When is one ready to write upon its pages his or her own contributions?
Life is no passive gathering of information. It is not a spectator sport. Only in participation is one truly alive. In order to express feelings or opinions about anything in life, one must have a personal experience of it. Only personal experience conveys the qualification and the right to speak, to write or to create art as explanation and explication of any topic of discussion and debate.

A Warning in Another’s Eyes
Stop and Stare
Staring is not the same as intently gazing into another person’s eyes as a manner of communication.
That can be a quite pleasurable experience. Staring into another’ eyes too often presages the delivery of a warning or very bad news. The fixed stare is the facial equivalent of a flashing amber light, indicating you should proceed but only with great caution. Keep that in mind as you peruse t

Of Angels and Demons Vol. 1
“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”
— TheMaidenInBlack, of theWrittenRevolution

Ebony Armor TutorialHappy new year, guys!Ebony Armor Tutorial2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Still working on my Ebony Armor every day.
Now, I'm back from my 2 weeks off and I can only work in that armor in the evenings
Anyway, I wanted to create a small booklet for you with a step by step guide
of the build of the Ebony Armor with included patterns.
For people out there who want to do the same armor.
I hope, this turns out well.
Never done a whole tutorial by myself before.
And if you like to commission me with something, dagger, sword, armor, don't hesitate to ask me
Here's my Ebony Armor collection so far…

Something is in the Basement by david-sladek
It's October and the sacred 31 days of Halloween are upon us-time to get your gore on! The chill is in the air, the leaves are on the ground, and Halloween candy has been out since Labor Day. So while you’re waiting in the Starbucks line for an overpriced double pumpkin spice whatever, pass the time with this year’s scary movies reviews!
Insidious (Series 2010–2013)
Hmmm... (Little Edit).... what is it with all those tits- and lady-crotch-shots with those pseudo-intellectual titles like "A dream of your lost desire" or "Loneliness of your heart" that spam DA? Giving it those "artistic" names does not turn a cheap tits- or vagina-shot into an artwork automatically. I am so annoyed, not so much with seeing female parts again and again *yawn* but with the fact that so many people try to sell sex with the "arts" label.Hmmm... (Little Edit)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Looks like I should create a penis-cloesup with the title "Bringer of life" or "The mighty snake of forgiveness" or something like that. I wonder if it would be deleted?

I have to say I am devastated.

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that

Dia de los Muertos
“Day of the Dead” is not the “Latin American Halloween.” On Dia de los Muertos, Mexican families visit the spirits of their dead in the cemeteries where they rest. They bring food and other gifts as part of a happy celebration of departed loved ones. Halloween originated with the fear of the sprits of the dead visiting the living so food was offered as bribery for the spirits to do no harm. It was a scary once–a–year intersection of the world of the living with the world of the dead. Day of the Dead continues to be a celebration as antidote to mourning the passing over of loved ones. It is about the ind

Between Sci-Fi and Fantasy
Create a character or a scene featuring the concept of Sci-fi and/or Fantasy by using my Stock as a reference.
What is Fantasy?
It's an alternative world featuring magic or supernatural creatures/events. Vampires, werewolves, magicians, gargoyles, fairies, Slenderman and all those creatures are part of a fantasy genre. We often see fantasy in medieval times, but it still can happen in 2013. Examples of fantasy stories: Supernatural, Avatar, Narnia, Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft.

Long tweet from Gerard about the end of the bandGerard just posted a very long tweet: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/n_1rjdh4fLong tweet from Gerard about the end of the band2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The explanation is kind of of vague, but he makes two things clear: the band didn't end due to scandal or argument, and MCR is indeed done. So whether the fan theories about legal issues are true or not, the break-up is permanent, and it wasn't quite as abrupt as it seemed.
As incredibly disappointing as this is, I'm glad he said this early on so we can stop pondering over theories and start to move on with our lives. While I thought the theories were interesting, I worried that they brought false hope and dragged this on longer than necessary. Now we finally have to put MCR to rest.
But even though MCR is over, the guys' stories certainly aren't. I just hope they find happiness in whatever they do.

You know what makes me sick and tired?
Why is it ok to depict nude women, sometimes quite blatantly (those make it on the front page…), but if you show MALE nudity… some people get their panties in a twist.
I get a lot of positive feedback, don't get me wrong. My watchers are cool and overall very nice and they watch me for a reason... I mean, look at my gallery... men, men and even more men, dressed and (half) naked men.
BUT then there is those people that have never even talked to me before... they send me notes, try to tell me how to do MY art, telling me I create porn and that naked men are ugly... I instantly delete shit like that, otherwise I would have a few quotes

The 25 winners of the Benoit Mandelbrot Fractal Art Contest were contacted in mid February to supply large format files of their winning images and also a short bio explaining their interest in fractal art, software used and general information about their work if they chose to do so. We were also informed that the first exhibit would be held in Logroño, in Northern Spain. Javier Barrallo, a Professor of Mathematics at The University of the Basque Country, Spain and also one of the panelists for the BMFAC was our contact for this. The current exhibit will be in the Casa de la Ciencia (House of Science), in Logroño, the Capital city of RIOJA until June 10th. I'll post a few pictures Javier sent further down. Javier also says he will send more pictures soon.

On December, a friend of mine, musher known as a legend, the great mentor to me has passed away, I traveled up to the mountains and went on mushing alone (skijoring: cross-country skiing + sled dog, it looks like that: http://i.pinger.pl/pgr221/0fa2234e000267884b460f96/justyna_kowalczyk_10.jpg but with a dog pulling you) with my leader Arnaq. Instead spending Christmas at cozy places, I've been very hardly training cross-country skiing (skate style) alone and with my dog as well. On that month I've been doing negatively physically as well mentally, especially that feeling of emptiness after losing someone where you will never see this person again- sport was absolutely to best thing to help myself to overthink many things and make me to stand on feet properly.
But other than sport by itself I did but that trip was kind of my personal memorial for that musher who passed away. In his name I went on mushing. For
