Choose any media or medium and there is no question that Drones have become the white hot center of debate for a multitude of deeply consequential concerns for the entire Earth Sphere. No matter the digital end point or theatre of conversation, whether it be politics, war, privacy, pop culture, or the rise of machines – Drones or UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) are the current catalyst du jour in any number of flashpoint discussions. From the front page headlines of news outlets around the world, to op-ed pages debating national security vs. non-juridical “just
Ban ListI Broke your rules, what will happen?Ban List2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have a private Ban List, if you break my rules I'll add you there, if you break my rules twice, you can't request for a whole month (under normal conditions)
Why so special with the rules?!
Because You have the chance to get a decent quality drawing, comic even animation or flash comic from me... for free.
Every rule has a reason:
Rule 1 ask to not ask if I'm doing request or give incomplete ideas
BECAUSE it's a waste of time, I already AM answering those questions in my profile page and journals!
As well, inconclusive ideas like "I have an idea involving slime" are too ambiguous and simply are prompting me to "ask for details" which take more time,if you give the idea from the begging I can give feedback and/or start doing the commission.
Rule 2 Says to ask what you want into a comic or a drawing, I hate people tell me to do animations or flash comics
Sorry sir, Are you paying me? You have the chance

One or the OtherA difference between the parties comes to this; one says, "We want to make laws so you won't do that which is bad for you," the other says, "Spend all your money so you can't afford to do what's bad for you." Notice how this party leaves out that being in debt is bad for you. The worst thing is the common man is saying, "I can make my own decisions, so leave me alone. I need my money to get by, stay away." And as always the politicians on either side aren't listening to the common man because their ears are too stuffed with money from B. B.

Project X ZoneQuick summary: Namco Bandai, Sega and Capcom decided that Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal was too wimpy so they decided to make a more epic looking game in Project X Zone, a crossover tactics game using characters from there respective titles with a good chunk announced already though is expected to climb to 200 by launch on the Nintendo 3DS.Project X Zone3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know its not fair to judge a fighter against a tactic but bloody heck this looks amazing in comparison to the Playstation game. XD
While I don't know many of the characters revealed so far, there are enough there to make me hyped for this game, with Kite and Blackrose from dot.hack, X and Zero from Megaman X, and a bunch of others I recognize and respect. Once more, though not sure if its new, they take the tactics concept and add to it with cross attack, allowing up to 5 characters with in range of the same target to attack all at once in what will be very lovely 3D sprite an
Genie philosophy (Part II)Recently, i was thinking about why are genies also called "djinn" (the same word in singular and plural form).Genie philosophy (Part II)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
And some time, i talked to a philosopher on this topic.
And now i now why doesn't this word have plural form.
It turns out that:
F i r s t :
The word "Djinn" doesn't have plural form because they are "unity in multiplicity" (It means that djinn is the one force which has a lot of manifestations we call djinn/genies)
And s e c o n d :
They are fully and permanently dependent, they aren't able to exist independently at all. They are like some energy of fire or/and of passion.
So, i can make the conclusion that djinn is not a creature or creatures. Djinn is nothing but the special energy. (So, it is called "Djinn-energy" or simply "Djinn").
And genies are ones who have the "Djinn-energy" or are created by it.
If we say "genie", we talk about one creature. And when we say "Djinn", we talk abo
Why the childish gender wars?One thing I noticed is that many deviants have misconceptions about what the opposite gender thinks or how they view them. In turn, some of the stamps that people make come across as sexist, even if they didn't intend for it to be sexist.Why the childish gender wars?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I found at least two stamps that were intended to be sexist, one about men and one about women.
The one saying that men are better than women in support of a man/author/sexist bastard named Dick Masterson. This guy is unbelievable and seems to be mentally disturbed, psychotic, or a sociopath... he's probably both. I'm not blowing things out of porportions, in fact, I haven't even scraped the tip of the iceberg. He has a website called www.menarebetterthanwomen.com and it literally makes me sick.
On the flip side, there's a stamp pretty much calling men dumbasses and sex obsessed. This also got me very mad. They claimed that women had more brain cells and thought about sex on average only once a day where as men think about sex once every 58 seconds. T

Pretending this is a coloured drawing ready for toning. Make sure you image is set to grayscale mode and not RGB or CYMK. For each gray you wish to have a different sized tone, colour it on it's own layer. Naming the dot sizes you want will help you keep track. Also when you start you image make sure the DPI or Resolution is set to either 300, 600 or 1200.
Go to Filters>> Pixelate>> Colourhalftone and something like this will appear
Channel 1,2 and 3 are RBG. Red Blue Green. The numbers you place control how Red, Blue and Green line up with each other. So in theory. If you place channel 1,2 and 3 all with the same number, for this instance 0 and leave channel 4 at the angel of 45 you should then get something that appears as such.
For me working at an angel of 100 degrees for RGB works great but that is what channel
Practice One Kick 10,000 TimesWell, it is a brand new year, and time for a new Journal entry filled with my rambling thoughts. Now, I had intended to keep the tone of these journals to be silly or at least tongue-in-cheek for the most part, and not wanting to subject those few individual readers to useless rants about the various injustices in my life, frustrations, drama, or any "dear diary" nonsense that best belongs on a Facebook page (maybe).

Recently, I was asked by one person about what were the inspirations for creating my characters, and any advice I could give about making existing characters better ones. I suspect that the reason for this particular query might have come from the ever-increasing number of elastic female characters that have shown up on DA over the past few years. With so many charact

Event Ponderings *Update 4/24*---4/24---Event Ponderings *Update 4/24*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nearing completion of all of my commissions and I am kicking around a few ideas and other event-related musings.
1. If I am going to attempt another Alphabet of TF, I have an altered approach to it. Naturally some letters of the alphabet will not be as popular as others so prices should vary from cheap for the less popular letters to some letters which are very popular (B for example). So I am imagining an auction approach to reserving specific letters, meaning that some letters will be able to be picked up cheap if less people are interested in it.
2. Another event idea involves starting with a character and alterations to her will be reserved in a manner that will be branching out and stacked (if that makes any sense). While this concept is not something I have done myself, I believe it has been done by other expansion/transformation artists here on DA. I wouldn't want to feel like I am pushing into someone else's idea.
3. The 'What's in a Name?' event skips over the

A person who goes by the name 'BlameThe1st' :iconblamethe1st: actually said this.
Here is the entire, but probably ongoing conversation. http://comments.deviantart.com/1/342947938/2864387328
I take exception to the word "ONLY".
Isn't ONE incident of multiple homicide too many?
He sights three incidents, but how many people killed?
How many men women and children traumatized in ONLY those three incidents mentioned?
Not to mention the massacres that ONLY happened in places OTHER than schools.
When I asked Blamethe1st if he found the statistic of three school massacres acceptable, he dodged the question.
"My point is that, the shock of these atrocities aside, In the end, they are anomalies, not the norm. Violent crime is still on the decline".

Genie philosophy (Part I)There is interesting thought I has at the moment.Genie philosophy (Part I)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Why people consider that a lamp and a bottle are the same things for all the genies?
So, i think different:
The lamp-genies are really slaves of their masters. They can't be freed by only granting 3 wishes. I mean that the lamp-genie must obey its master until its lamp belongs to this master. So, he (or she) can be changed. The lamp-genie can be freed only when master wants it.
The bottle-genie is different. It isn't enslaved to the bottle. This is just a prison for a genie. Only cork with special stamp can stop it form freedom. So, when someone open the bottle, he (of she) is NOT master, but rescuer. And (un-) bottled genie can grants 3 wishes for the rescuer, or it can just kill him (or her), if it is really angry or even evil.
It turns out this:
The lamp-genie is a slave - the bottle-genie is a prisoner.
The lamp-genie grants infinite amount of wishes - the bottle-genie grants either only 3 or no wishes at all.
The ring-genie can be

Requests are limited to one to three characters in a single image. That means no comics, no sequences or sprite animations. Art Trades are different though, my half of a trade will be limited depending on what the complexity of the other's half will go... Kind of like a rubber band, the farther you pull, the harder it'll snap. So the Trades will always be on EQUAL terms.

Today we're discussing Vocamon, formerly Sora Takenouchi:
(The pinup will be added when it appears)
Vocamon is a pop idol digimon, with much of her data having been acquired from Vocaloids and pop music celebrity video tapes. In her previous forms (assuming she had a history in the digital world), she was managed by Etemon to be a cute and sweet pop star. However, as she grew she slowly grew rebellious, finally breaking off from Etemon in her ultimate stage. In this, her mega stage, Vocamon has come into her own as a more mature pop idol, having become the sweetheart of many digimon. Shoutmon in particular has become smitten with her and follows her wherever she goes, as she tours around the digital world, giving shows for her many fans. Etemon has become her nemesis, attempting to sabotage her shows.
The Greatest Experiment in Capitalism: AnalyzedWhat gives the government the right to forcibly redistribute wealth from the rich to fulfill the needs of the poor?The Greatest Experiment in Capitalism: Analyzed3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The above seems to be the battle cry of many free market idealists, which inspired me to write this article. Surprisingly, many people who offer this contention aren't rich, and are unwitting beneficiaries of government control.
My initial thought was a bit cheeky. The middle class is currently paying about 50% of their income in taxes, while the rich pay about 15%. The rich buy politicians to keep it this way. What gives a rich person the right to steal from the middle class not for their needs but for sport?
Although there is a lot of truth to that, it's still important to address the main point: the aversion to the government using force to redistribute wealth. This sounds good in concept, and if you keep it in abstract terms it's hard to disagree with it. However, the supe
