Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know

Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography ContestIt is time for another Typography contest! The theme of this contest will be…Bring Your Type to Life - A Typography Contest3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, word
Leia english lyrics [Nano]Every time I dream, I can hear your voiceLeia english lyrics [Nano]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
reaching out to me as I keep drowning
In this heart, an empty canvas
I will blacken it with tears
Illusions that seem to never end
Falling through like an hourglass
Shrouded by all these mysteries
Warmth that feels so familiar
Heartless words that escape my lips
Laughter threatens to eat my soul
Fearing taking a step ahead
What awaits me no is a future of gray
Praying to see an answer
Amongst these broken lies
If my words were to reach you
what would you say?
Scattering the light broken in pieces
Shattering the darkness from within
I can hear a voice as it grows distant
pulling me back into life...
If I were to lose all that surrounds me
If I were to find only a void
I would give up all my senses
Just to fall into your arms
Illusions that seem to never end
Hidden under a vacant smile
Fearing words that were never said
Echoing in endless layers of gray...
Failing to find an answer
I hold my breath again
Desperate to break away

OC CONTEST 1300 points and art!!! CLOSEDHello, sweeties!!!OC CONTEST 1300 points and art!!! CLOSED1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Again it’s time - time for a new CONTEST. I hope all of you will join and invite a lot of friends. Thinking about the topic I saw a picture (actually just a little sketch) of my OC Sakura. As a result I have decided for the following theme/contest.
Draw my OCs Sayuri or/and Sakura. References you can see below.
Sayuri and Sakura are best friends; however, their characters are very different.
She loves cooking and is a very friendly and nice girl. Sayuri protect other people but she isn't very strong. She has a fan as weapon.
For other people she is like a mother (nice and frank).
She is a ghost.

A (modern) history of dA emoticonsIntroA (modern) history of dA emoticons2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As you wander around deviantART pages, there is noticeably one art medium that invades almost every element of the site. Whether it is the deviantART galleries, journals, news section, comments, forums, chatrooms, avatars or even dA profiles, it is hard to find a spot that hasn't been infiltrated by a familiar set of small, coloured, pixel circles. The art form I am talking about is of course the emoticon and throughout the past 10 or so years they have been happily adopted by deviantART and its community.
Although emoticons can often be spotted on a wide range of other instant messengers (IMs) and social media sites, deviantART has come to house a unique branch of these miniature art pieces. Whilst the majority of these alternative sites opt for simple, predominately yellow emotes with a range of basic expressions, the art community here at dA have stretched the art form far beyond its natural boundaries and developed entirely new styles of emoticons

Teenage Alien Ninja TurtlesI've just learned that filmmaker Michael Bay (aka - Uwe-Boll-With-A-Budget) has turned his withering gaze upon the Heroes in a Half-Shell, and has set about mutilating the franchise by informing us that their origin will change in his upcoming (oh god; if I have to refer to another film as this I may start weeping blood) reboot.Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Y'know in the Disney animation Bolt where the idiot pigeons give a one-word pitch at how to "improve" the series that the titular doggie has absconded from? It's a dig at crappy writers that have no idea how to come up with an original idea and so just shoehorn in absurd new story elements to an existing tale.
Well; that's basically what Mr Bay has said:
Nope. They're not mutants anymore. They're aliens.
After Transformers: This should be buried on the dark side of the Moon (or whatever it was called), I vowed never to piss away my money or, more importantly; my time, watching any future film Bay is connected with.

A Brief History of Marvel's Film RightsSome people took interest in this from my last journal ( Spider-Man and the Avengers ) so I thought I’d try to explain it better here. Please keep in mind that this is a SUPER CONDENSED version of events that took place (starting 60 years ago) that led to the convoluted mess that is currently Marvel’s various film franchises. Also keep in mind that I will be using industry shorthand like saying “comic book industry” to refer to the American comic book industry giants of Marvel and DC, because that’s how we do things here. Anyway, here we go!A Brief History of Marvel's Film Rights10 months ago in Personal More Like This
