An open letter of thanks to thatgamecompanyDear thatgamecompany team,An open letter of thanks to thatgamecompany2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After many reflections and doubts, I couldn't come up with a better way to thank you properly than this - sharing my thoughts with my companions and fellow players, all over the world, hoping that this eventually gets to you somehow.
If it happens, I want you to know this. No matter who of you gets to read this letter in the end; everyone at thatgamecompany has, and will always have, my eternal gratitude for making it possible - for me and thousands of other players - to enjoy one of the most extraordinary, unforgettable, amazing experiences we will ever come across in our lives.
I think that, in a way, videogames are an unlucky medium. Not because of their popularity, which is immense, or their range of opportunities - for the truth is, in fact, the exact opposite. If, in this world and these times, there is a form of art which can claim to be creative, widespread, open to anyone and easily accessible, videogames are definitely that form of art, thanks to th

Conclusion...You know what? Fuck society.Conclusion3 years ago in Personal More Like This
According to it;
I'm disgusting, or a big joke, because I'm attracted to the same sex.
I'm fat, because I choose to eat when I'm hungry.
I'm ugly, because my face and hair isn't perfect or pristine.
I'm weird, because I'm not exactly the same as everyone else.
I'm too nice, so clearly I'm 'fake' or I'm getting too friendly.
I'm stupid, because sometimes I just don't know what the answer is.
I'm a liar, becuase I didn't tell everyone, everything.
If being and doing all those things makes me a outcast, then I'm happy to be one.
Like the old saying goes, "Better to be a tiger for one day, than a hundred years a sheep."

" I'm sorry, what?"
"You'll get bored of it, and then you'll hate it. That's what happens."
I simply turned and smiled. "Heh, you obviously don't know me very well, do you?"
Even when I was small, people used to tell me that I'd end up working for SEGA. I was crazy about the blue hedgehog from age six, and it's safe to say I haven't stopped since. I just smiled, though. It just seemed to be one of those things people said. I always knew that I wanted to, but I lacked the confidence for a long time, and as a result simply thought I lacked the appropriate skills. I've been in the online community for all of my teenage years, developing all aspects of my artwork mainly for the basis of showing my love for the franchise and the ethos of the series to others. The day I was hired, I knew things were starting to look up for me. I'd always made a promise to myself that I would do my best to make an impact however I could.

So finally, after 1 month, we reached 100 members.
Hopefully this group (army) will grow.
As you know, Michael Jackson’s Death Anniversary is close. And well, for those of you who don’t know, it’s 25th June.
Basically I don’t believe that he’s dead. And I’m sure many of you agree with me but this group is not for my personal opinions and I respect everyone’s beliefs. So we’re holding a tribute contest for 25th June.
Remember, it’s ONLY if we get enough participants.
Michael Jackson Tribute Contest (2012)
It’s a tribute contest so the theme could be ANYTHING, as long as it’s related to Michael Jackson.
If you want to submit literature, you shouldn’t upload a picture with it.

Something about dedication in drawing improvementUPDATED: 2013/11/02 Added 1 personal suggestion at the bottom...Something about dedication in drawing improvement1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Couple of days ago I came across a series of notes & quotes made my various Japanese artists on how to improve drawing. This was not really an article per say but more of cut & paste collection from different source, so the artists had very different background varying from manga-ka, animators & illustrators (including general illustration). While some of them did have specific approach in development, majority of them had 1 thing in common. Which is to weight the practice in quantity, in other word "draw as much as you can".
To me this was rather obvious cause I some what went through this practice earlier in my as I became so called "Artist". (Well that's what people call me and not what I personally feel...) Although the difference is that initially I didn't do it because I wanted to improvement but I just picked up pencil because I like drawing. But in any case their was couple of
Has Anyone...? Has anyone ever noticed how similar Luke Castellan and Anakin Skywalker are in terms of their transition from good to evil, from light into darkness? For example, in both cases they were corrupted by a purely evil entity that desired revenge against the forces of good(the Olympian gods and the Jedi knights) that they(Luke and Anakin) had chosen to ally themselves with. Also, both Luke and Anakin were angry and bitter and felt like their ally, or parent in Luke's case, owed them something. Kronos and the Emperor, aka Darth Sidious, aka Chancellor Palpatine, the evil entities I mentioned before, used that anger and bitterness and, once they had Luke and Anakin on their sides, their new servants' desire for vengeance to fuel their own plans for revenge against their enemies. However, I believe Luke is decidedly less weak-willed than Anakin, as it took Kronos more time to turn Luke evil than it took the Emperor to convert Anakin to the Dark Side.Has Anyone...?6 months ago in Personal More Like This

We all know it. Making something and then showing it out there makes you very vulnerable, emotionally.
What if people think it's shit? What if they think it's weird... what will they think? Will that reflect on how they think of me as a person?
I know what some of you are thinking right now... 'You should care less about what people think of you or you art.'
In a sense you are right.. than again, you SHOULD care what people think of you and your art! They are your market and potential clients.
It's easier when you're already doing your dream job and couldn't care less for other potential directions... but most of us will always stay interested in new opportunities.

The true testEphesians 4:32The true test1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
The true test for us is not getting over someone doing us wrong but can we find the strength in Jesus to forgive and love them. Jesus wasn't friends with the Pharisees but He still loved them. When He was up on the cross He ask God the Father to forgive them. It is easy for us to seek revenge that comes natural for us but to forgive that is a true test. Could we find it in our hearts to pray for them in the hope that God's grace might find them.

All the required characters have been turned in, so that means the final due date is one month from now on February 6th.
You can still sign up for characters, but the due date for any character is February 6th, even if you sign up a week before that day.
Also, since we only have one month left, people who've reached their max amount of charcters can do a few more if they wish. Let's say... three more if they so choose.
For this collab, we will be drawing all the Disney girls we can!

Any girl character can only be in the collab once. In other words, if someone has already taken her, then you can't sign up for her.

Live for Jesus not for a religionYou say I am being religious but I don't have a religion, I have Jesus, He lives in me. You say I am being ridiculous but doesn't it sound like your being ridiculous for not believing in Jesus. You see me and say, "he has changed, he found religion" but I say thank you Jesus. God crushed religions, it is an abomination, we don't need a religion we need Jesus. Was Jesus being ridiculous when He died for our sins? Jesus didn't die for us to have a religion. He gave us life so He might dwell in us. Now if He wasn't ridiculous for dying for us and He didn't do it for a religion. Wouldn't you say living for Jesus and giving your life up for Him isn't ridiculous? If Jesus gave up His life for us then why would we think we are not called to do the same for Him. Love God seek His glory in Jesus, if we beleive in Him and the word of God to be true then where does it say live in Jesus but also keep doing things as the world would do?
