There are people who literally spend hours of their life every day following me. People who obsessively save every work of art I post online. People who comment and hypothesize about everything I do, even when I am not doing anything. People who make their own comics, websites, and blogs because of me. People who meticulously sift through my stats, my comments, and near-decade old journals. People who obsessively screen-capture everything I say or do anywhere online. People who seemingly have no life other than to talk about every aspect of my own. People who, day in and day out, never tire of talking about me to their friends online.
These people are amazing and I am continually astounded by them and the things they come up with... over a worthless and unimportant cartoonist.
Not even a good cartoonist either. Just an average, slightly stubborn, mediocrely popular on a dubious website... cartoonist. Not a politician with real influence in the world. Not a famous

The Used Game ParadigmOver the course of this past generation I've been watching the video game market react to the way it's been forced to deal with increasing changes. I've come out against used game sales and even written a journal about boycotting GameStop because (like most people at the time) I believed they were the root cause of all the problems the video game industry has. But that's something I don't believe now as intently as i did then. From where I sit, piracy and used games sales are a problem, but not in the way game companies want us to believe that they are.The Used Game Paradigm2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Used games are a good thing for consumers. We get to try games out, and if we don't like what we see or finish it early, we trade it in and try another title instead. It's a very good system for us since video game rentals are much harder to come by. Most video rental stores in America have gone extinct and outside specific Red Box Kiosks there aren't a lot of places for consumers to rent video games. The exception, of course, being thr

Hey guys, I'm currently having writers block on my personal project so I decided to make two lists I'm certain you've been waiting for. I am going to start with the characters I personally hate and then afterwards I'll make a list of character I do like. Now, I want to note that if you like these character I will not judge you, I will not look down at you, I can respect you for it. These are just the characters in fiction that just drive me to my breaking point. So, without further hesitation, here are my top 10 most disliked characters.
#10 Gart Default from Robot and Monster
All I can really say about this guy is that he's not the worst character on the list, but he is defiatly a dick. He only lives to torment his brother, harm his workers, pretty much has roaylty sucking his golden metallic testicles. Yeah, he's like Mr. Burns except where Burns at least had some redeeming qualities, Gart has none. Gart is pretty much every evil boss character incarna

This time they're going after Studio Ghibli's "The Secret World of Arrietty" and accusing, once again, that liberal Hollywood's agenda is corrupting children and turning them into "occu-toddlers." They also turned their sights on the new adaptation of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax. They claim that both movies "demonize the 1%" and that people "offended" by these movies should fight back by... littering. Don't believe me? Watch the video and get ready to facepalm: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuFcWkFJZgk

MMD In defense of rip artists ...MMD In defense of rip artists ...2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
DeviantArts (DA) is probably unique in several ways, but the thing that I've found strangest and have had the most difficulty with grappling with is their tolerance(?) of "rips". Which is why I think this could be an interesting discussion.
"Rips" are models taken from commercial computer and video games and used for "something else". Make no mistakes about it, probably 99.99% of rips are illegal in the sense that they were "stolen" from something else. Which, given the existence of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), makes it kind of strange that DA tolerates any rips on their servers at all. May be they really do deserve the kind of reputation that they receive on other forums on the Internet, or they just aren't making enough money to be worth the bother to sue. Who knows? The fact remains is that at the moment DA seems to be a safe haven for rippers and nowhere are they perhaps more visible than in the MMD field.

Microsoft's lead creative director Adam Orth got angry over the backlash always online DRM has gotten lately (thanks in no small part to Sim City and Diablo III), and decided to take his frustrations to twitter. Orth made a plethora of sarcastic remarks, insulting people's place of residence, and mocking anyone not rich enough to always have an internet connection. By doing so, not only did he make himself look like an ass, he may have inadvertently revealed that the upcoming XBOX 720 may include always online DRM. Nice...
Since he's made his twitter account personal, you'll have to visit this http://www.screwattack.com/news/microsoft-lead-creative-director-uses-twitter-defend-rumored-always-xbox-720 to see a sampling of the remarks he made.

Though not quite going what I'd call "viral", it's interesting how far my 12th Doctor concept art (featuring Ruth Wilson as the Doctor) has gone beyond DeviantArt today (even retweeted by Paul Cornell!). The most Thunderdome-like exchange was undoubtedly on the Facebook group "Doctor Who and the TARDIS by Craig Hurle". Many of these amounted to "No GIRLZ! LOL. Bring BACK DAVID TENNANNNNNT." But a few people opposed to the idea of a female Doctor (which honestly, isn't the main agenda of the piece- I just think Ruth Wilson in particular would happen to make a really good Doctor) tried to stand up like bipeds and debate. One guy covered pretty much all the points I've heard against without sounding too hateful. Though he does lead off with one of those "I'm not sexist or bigoted, but..." beginnings. And we know how those comments usually end up...
"I am not saying this in any way to be bigoted, sexist, or in any other way suggesting that a woman would be less of

CGI Zelda Movie Shut Down... 6 Years Ago
Imagi Animation Studios, the company responsible for the CGI Astro Boy and TMNT movies, made a 1 minute test reel to show to Nintendo trying to pitch for a Legend of Zelda movie. The pitch made in 2007 was ultimately turned down by Nintendo, likely due to Nintendo being extraordinarily squeamish about letting an American animation company handle one of their properties after the abysmal failure of the live action Super Mario Bros movie. And hopes that this project would ever be looked at again were rendered null and void when the american branch of the animation company was shut down back in 2010.
But the good news for everyone is that you can see this

For that I hollowly apologise, because, like the nature of the comic, the pain was unavoidable, but there is still more to come. I'm still in the process of torturing myself, my characters and most of you. There were a few comments where people assumed this was the last page in the story and I just want to assure you it's not, don't worry, I'll let you know with a big THE END at the end of it. Sorry in advance, but thank you all for for your comments and your emotions and numerous icons of crying. They make this worthwhile.

PE: Adoptables[deviantART related]PE: Adoptables8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Adoptables are Original Characters, short OC, created by one deviant to be obtained by others.
There are different ways of how to get hold of them, that will be explained in detail further below of this article.
While the copyright and the idea remains to be property of the adoptable creator, the new owner usually has the right to do "whatever they want" with the OC.
That means, they can change certain characteristics of the overall look, can give them names, can create background stories and everything else that makes them a complex character. Additionally to that they can use that adopt to be used as avatars, in new artworks, as page dolls, as characters in stories or RPG and much more.
Of course there are still rules by the original creator that should be followed.
Mostly people who are not much into visual art and those that have a hard time to come up with original characters themselves do benefit from them. Adoptables are always pre-made and that means you al

The DeviantArt MMD community is notorious for its drama and mini-conflicts. It has also been the one in which I've encountered some of the rudest people on the Internet. However, I have also been rather fortunate in being able to become acquainted with some of the nicest, talented and knowledgeable people I've ever encountered anywhere. Many of these have graced my gallery with their visits, comments, encouragement and attentions. And a few, perhaps some of the most talented, have graciously given me access to hard to get models, exclusive previews of their MMD work and even insights into their methods of doing things.
Occasionally, I am gifted with real gems and this was the case when garmus1 dropped a note in my inbox the other night. Apart from the depth of knowledge that he gives into his methods, he's also given me permission to share that knowledge with the rest of the community.

So a rumor that was leaked, and then possibly confirmed, is that not only is MLP:FiM getting a movie (a direct to video movie I'd wager), but a spin off series as well. This spin off series will be called Equestria Girls and be about the Mane 6 crew being transported to Earth and transformed into humanized versions of themselves.
And bronies are throwing a tantrum, yet again.
I've kinda given up trying to understand brony mentalities these days. You adore the crap out of humanized MLP fanart, but you don't support the idea of it being somehow "official"? I mean, I get that you enjoy the show because you're a niche and unexpected demographic Hasbro should be mining for oodles of cash, but at the same time you all do recognize that the show IS made for little girls and kids in mind, right? It's a giant toy line advertisement through and through, so why are people freaking out over the idea that they introduce characters or scenarios to sell toys? Did none of

We all loved her very much and this has been a crushing blow to all of us.

R.I.P. Mary Tamm, 1950-2012Devastating news today: Mary Tamm, the original Romana (and probably the most glamourous "Doctor Who girl" ever) has died after a long battle with cancer. Truly shocking, especially on the heels of Caroline John's death from cancer just weeks ago (and Nick Courtney and Lis Sladen last year). Her Romana was a brilliant, "too cool for school" character who really felt more like a partner-in-crime for the Doctor than a "companion". Do yourself a favor and watch the KEY TO TIME season if you haven't seen it. It's wonderful stuff (I'm especially fond of THE ANDROIDS OF TARA), and the best thing about it is Tamm's brilliant performance.R.I.P. Mary Tamm, 1950-20123 years ago in Personal More Like This

"I DON'T LIKE IT!"Mmkay, so...I do like reading fanfiction. I like reading what imagination and ideas fans can come up with and put it into literature. BUT, there are simply some fanfics that make me scream in my head "I DON'T LIKE IT!!!! }:C" So, on the fanfiction website I read the summary before reading, saying their OC/FC was a slave to one of my favorite guy characters, at first I discarded the thought of reading it, but later I thought I was too harsh and read it, I cringed through the beginning: it started off with the FC describing her "harsh" life, her drunk dad and blah blah blah I kept begging for the "woe is me" past to be over with. She was captured by my favorite guy - making him out of character (OOC can work ONLY when the non-canon personality can at least be anything but favoring the FC on the spot!) -_____- So I dragged through, hoping the story was good as the reviews said it would, more and more guys were acting like complete DOGS to this author's FC.
