A little story...Wanted to share this story with you guys, and future creators:A little story...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After getting out of a slump, I wanted to share this story of something I went through a few years back. Bit of a read, but thanks for sticking through it
As you know, Comic-Con is arriving and as I prepare for it, I grow more and more anticipated with anxiety/joy in regards to the re-release of Last Man Standing.
As long, challenging, and mind-opening the creation of LMS was, something really stuck with me.
Before I had created LMS, I wanted to work for WETA Workshop. To those that don't know them, they've created props, designs, sets, costumes, and more for The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District-9, Elysium, The Hobbit and many more films.
I was obsessed and inspired with them. The creator, Richard Taylor was always a huge inspiration to me. After viewing supplements on the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings DVDS, I knew right there: I HAD TO WORK FOR THEM.
So I al
Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise
Skyrim ReviewTwo or three years late but whatever! We can't all buy stuff day one, right? Anyway, if you've been following my journal entries as I've started playing Skyrim you can probably tell how this review is gonna go down.Skyrim Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I hate complicated things, and Skyrim is a game with a deep and rich history that can be very difficult for newbies like me to get into. Right off the bat the game throws all sorts of names, races, powers, legends, lore, etc at you. Too much of that can be a big turn off (heck I know people who still haven't read Lord of the Rings because there were too many names), but luckily Skyrim does a good job of easing players into the game.
There is a main campaign you have to follow to technically "beat" the game, but you don't have to follow it. The moment I had a chance to break free of the story I did so and I went exploring. That allowed me, a new person unfamiliar with any of the lore of the Elder Scrolls series, to experience the world at my own pace. The world is so e

DLC I have Installed
Dragonborn - Don’t really care for this one so far. Just hasn’t peaked my interest yet.
Dawnguard - I’m REALLY enjoying this one, although as you’ll see it’s necessitated that I add some mods to help keep it from breaking my game.
Hearthfires - I enjoyed this one too. Very relaxing and fun to hunt the world for resources to build your own homes, marry, and adopt children.
Birds - Adds extra birds flying around the world.
Enhanced Wetness and Puddles - This is a work in progress mod that makes puddles appear in towns when it’s raining. They’ll grow to a specific size then shrink to nothing when the rain stops. Just giving the world a little bit more realism. Unfortunately it’

Research HeadacheI decided to start the new year off by doing a research binge. For the past 48 hours I’ve been seeking out documentaries, specials, books, websites, ancient literature, etc. I kinda like to think the brain is like a sponge, absorbing everything that’s put around it. The basic idea is that I soak up enough of this knowledge I can use it on a more instinctual level when I’m writing.Research Headache10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Fun though this is in it’s own way, it’s still work. As much as I am enjoying doing all this voluntary research I am beginning to feel a little burnt out by how much information I’ve been assimilating.
This isn’t really related but if you haven’t seen the History Channel’s miniseries “Vikings,” you should definitely check it out if you can. Quite impressed with it, and loving the attention to details and character development. Kinda like Game of Thrones in it’s tone and brutality, but without all the “sexposition” dialogue and
About Card Sagas Wars...This is from both me and :iconorkimides:About Card Sagas Wars...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"I'm going to try to disipate some doubts about CSW, I know you have been waiting a long time so I'll try to answer the most common questions:
First and most important is that the project has not been cancelled. We started to work professionaly and we have been expending a lot of time
without developing fully CSW to improve ourselves in other areas and taking a break doing different kind of things.
The truth is that we still have a lot of things about CSW that we haven't showed yet and some day will be shown;
my advice is that you just keep going on with your lives and someday you will find some update, but for the moment there isn't none.
Nothing of this can be published on the main site because we lost access to it a long time ago, we talked about that time ago. Also we can't release a first version
and then update it with downloable characters because the core of the game is not done, you might think it is by the videos, but it's

MCBA and Sim CityMCBA Spring ConMCBA and Sim City2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm fairly certain I'll be attending the Minneapolis Comic Book Association's (MCBA) Spring Comic Con this year. I usually attend this convention every year and I enjoy it a lot. But it has been a long time since I've attended a convention (almost a year now), so I am nervous about having enough new stuff prepared. I'll fill you guys in on the details as we get closer to the convention date, and if any other conventions pop up I'll let you all know too.
I'd love to attend the MCM convention in England again, but I just don't know if I'll be able to afford the plane tickets in time.

Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders.

Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic

How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?A photographer like me who portrays beautiful women is sometimes accused of damaging people. Why? Because we raise the bar for everybody to an unhealthy level. We give wrong expectations of how you or a partner worthy of you are supposed to look. We use all the tricks to make the people in the pictures always look perfect and beautiful – how can a normal person keep up with this?How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, from my point of view the answer is simple, maybe too simple for you: you don't have to keep up with this. In a funny way I face the same problem as you, but from the other side: how can I keep up with you? You have not only your looks, you have your own unique way. You have your personality, your style. You have your way of walking and talking. You can make a real connection with somebody. You can touch them. You can make them feel your caress. You can make their heart pound.
How can I as a photographer keep up with this? I only have a stupid picture, how can I make someone's heart pound?

I am just very curious to find out what people think of the game
I'll kick off:
The first thing that sprang to mind was the beautiful color palette. After the relatively dim and grey setting of AC III this was a positive shocker. The color palette is strong and uplifting.Then what I so far find the most beautiful part of the game.... The soundtrack... wow.... I just love it!
The gameplay is very smooth and I haven't run into alot of bugs yet.
I keep finding myself sailing around and stuff. I actually have to force myself to do another story mission. At about 30% The Jackdaw was allready a floating fortress It's just cool to run and sail around being a pirate.

A Link to the Past 2A Link to the Past 2 for the 3DSA Link to the Past 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nintendo just announced this as part of their Nintendo Direct presentation, along side other titles like a Yoshi's Island sequel.
Nintendo. STOP BEING AWESOME. STOP IT!
Miyamoto said once that he wanted to remake A Link to the Past for the 3DS. Now it looks like this is the genesis of that idea. Of course being Miyamoto just a simple remake isn't good enough, it's got to include all new dungeons and gameplay mechanics while staying true to the tried and true top down gameplay. Any new handheld Zelda game that ditches the bullshit touch control system to move is a great idea in my books, but doing it with one of my absolute favorite Zelda games of all time? Nintendo, I love you.
Hypothetical question: Since this game takes place in the same universe as A Link to the Past, features locations from that game, and now that the game engine is made... couldn't they just release the remake to A Link to the Past as well? I mean, don't get me wrong as a Ni
Controversial OpinionsYou know, sometimes having opinions can make you feel like no one else shares your views, especially if your views aren't being widely vocalized around you. Case in point: It's just been announced that J.J.Abrams will be directing Star Wars 7, and the internet is raging with butthurt about how shitty Abrams is, making over abundant lens flare jokes, and bemoaning the reboot of Star Trek in the process.Controversial Opinions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thing is... I like J.J.Abrams. I liked LOST (despite it's shitty/rushed ending). I liked Super 8. I liked Cloverfield. I even enjoyed the recent Star Trek reboot and am looking forward to the sequel. I never had a problem with lens flares or noticed them being over used. And I think overall Abrams has made a fairly consistent batch of quality movies, which is a amazing considering how many directors flip flop between great and shitty.
But I can't often come right out and say that sort of thing because when I do I get attacked for having an opinion that runs counter to the vast majority o

Warum Venedig?„Warum hat man nicht jede Stadt so gebaut?“ Das war mein Gedanke, als ich zum ersten Mal nach Venedig kam. Kanäle statt Strassen, Boote und Gondeln statt Busse und Autos, Brücken und Treppen statt Fussgängerstreifen und Ampeln. Die Haustüren führen einfach ins Wasser hinaus. Ich stellte mir vor, wie der durchschnittliche Berufsmensch am Morgen sein Aktenköfferchen packt, Frau und Kinder zum Abschied küsst und schwungvoll durch die Türe geht - und mir nichts dir nichts ins Wasser fällt.

But I will be updating here soon with info on some wig sales! We're in need of money and space, so I'm going to be selling some of the wigs that I've been wanting to restyle or have already restyled. I might also be selling some wigs and costumes that I'm retiring. This will probably include my Yami Yugi wig, Sora wig, my 1st Yusei wig (not the one I currently wear), Johan wig, Dr. Fudo wig, plus a few others. I still need to figure out how much some of these will cost to ship, but once I do have things worked out I will be putting some of them on ebay and posting links here; so stay tuned for that :3. This is not a time to bug me for commissions; I'm just selling some things that I already have (I'm sorry! D: )
