Odyssey Propulsion 2The parasite that is monstrously mutating Paul offers an alliance against Maya, Paul’s other dubious “protector.”Odyssey Propulsion 23 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The parasite is Tal’Shen, spawn of Lysanna, hunted forerunner of an ancient aquatic-based intergalactic Cthulhuian-type race once again knocking on Earth’s door. Which “female” is Paul to trust? Is the fate of humanity in question or is this all the hallucinatory fever dream of a dying man?
Only four more chapters! Yet so many questions!
The pressure points have been set: self-survival, self-sacrifice for a greater cause, transmission of a vision of species survival and renewal, trust and deceit in equal measures possible in each relationship. Now it’s time to for the penultimate Big Reveal as to what it’s all about – to set up the Ultimate Big Reveal to what it’s really all about! There’s just time and space enough for you, oh skilled and deviou

Perhaps one day, SuperdAmn can be an official extension in the Chrome Web Store if this policy continues, but for now, the below procedure should do:

Requested Review - Treasure PlanetDisney's 'Treasure Planet' (2002)Requested Review - Treasure Planet3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this is my first requested review! (Yay!) I have a few of these planned based on the asks I get on tumblr (ovah here http://animakitten.tumblr.com/). Before I start this review, I need to start with the 'This is my opinion, you can agree with it or not' speech. Like I mentioned in the past, not every film is liked or disliked by everyone and everyone has the right to say what hey like or dislike about it. Of course it's better not to be an asshole about it and try to give coherent arguments when it comes to analyzing a film, that's why I usually research before reviewing a film I like or dislike.
For example, I usually disagree with Roger Ebert but I like reading his input because he does know a lot about film making and states his opinions with well written arguments, therefore I respect him. Which is funny because I disagree with him 90% of the time.
Alrighty, onto the review. So let's start with a bit of history.

One of the best way to deceive your enemy is camouflage. Leaf, mud, seeds, stick, tree stump, tree bark... the possibility are endless!

ESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMICESTABLISHING THE INITIAL STEPS FOR A WEBCOMIC2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hi I’m Andrea Dotta: a Pro comic artist and animator and one year ago I had the insane idea of making a powerful webcomic to show my works to more people as possible. Now I’m in a positive development towards my goal. If you want to do a webcomic, always do your best as their are millions of webcomics on the internet.
In this article, I would like to share the things that I’ve learned this year so I hope you will get something from me.
IDEA: There are no bad ideas, there are only ideas that are not developed. To develop your idea, you need to be authentic - think of your real life experiences to give credibility to your story. If you need a sad story, think of a sad story in your life. If you want a happy story, think and say what i

The House of DreamsI built a little House of Dreams,The House of Dreams3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And fenced it all about,
But still I heard the Wind of Truth
That roared without.
I laid a fire of Memories
And sat before the glow,
But through the chinks and round the door
The wind would blow.
I left the House, for all the night
I heard the Wind of Truth;
I followed where it seemed to lead
Through all my youth.
But when I sought the House of Dreams,
To creep within and die,
The Wind of Truth had levelled it,
And passed it by.

Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: SteampunkWelcome to the land that never was in an era that had never been looking forward to the future that never came.Neo-Victorian Steam-powered Fantasy: Steampunk1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome, to steampunk.
1. What is steampunk?
Steampunk is a retro-active subgenre of science fiction that incorporates elements of historical fiction, adventure, horror, speculative fiction, fantasy and alternative history. It exists as a hybrid genre that focuses on a re-imagining of the Industrial revolution when men and women create analog machines to achieve the fullest of human potential. Usually set in Victorian England during the mid- to late-1800’s or the American “Wild West” era, this genre incorporate the spirit of Jules Verne and H. G. Wells in their setting and general mood as well as the new-found relationship between man and his machine.
Steampunk has since become an aesthetic movement, sparking off subcultures that focus on visual art, comics, music, clothing, accessories and “custom mods” where modern-day m
At the Turn of the TideAs I am now rewriting a few lines for Episode 40, I look back at the last few months and cannot help myself but to issue a smile, complimented by a cheerfully raised eyebrow and a massive discharge of endorphins by my pituitary gland. We have arrived at our mid-season finale with style, if I may say so myself. The path wasn't always easy, one had to endure quite a bit of stress, invest massive amounts of time, handle not only respect and love, but also obsessive hate, ignorance and a plethora of quite colorful misunderstandings, stemming mostly from my willingness to honestly express my opinions, ignoring whether or not they fit into one of the well-defined thought molds available.At the Turn of the Tide3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Our little endeavor has managed to overcome the loss of interest following BioWare's release of the Extended Cut, when a lot of people decided that "this will do" (which is a very cool thing when you think about it – I always emphasize my jealousness aimed towards such an approach). We lost viewers along the
I hiked a mountain in a ballroom gown. (video)Yep, got on my ballroom gown and hiked up a mountain with it. I really wasn't expecting to get that far but we ended up getting to snow level! It was quite beautiful, very skyrim like, but even more green! We made a video below and photo's will soon be on the way! Also on a further note! I will be doing very little computer stuff over the next 24 hours. (Time to restart my system completely, to kill off some nasty problems and cookies I have been fighting for months now.) Check out the video below though, It was quite a trek! If you want to read more about the expedition read the video commentary section.I hiked a mountain in a ballroom gown.

This only goes back as far as July since that was when I started as a Community Volunteer. In the following days, I will be submitting three journals showcasing these beautiful works of art. They are my favorites, the ones that I take great pride in featuring and revisiting every now and again.
