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

119: Our Sonic Generations"You'll get bored of it, you know."119: Our Sonic Generations3 years ago in Personal More Like This
" 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.

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."

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...?8 months ago in Personal More Like This

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.

What the Judge's Were Saying: We really loved the designs and the story sounded intriguing! It seems like a great off-beat story for Disney to do with charming characters everyone is sure to fall in love with. Congratulations on first place!
What the judges were saying: We adored the idea of Laura and her cow, an historical story of a girl dragging her delightful cow across the country in a quest for peace. Absolutely wonderful idea! We'd LOVE to see it on the big screen - great material!

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?

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

I'll probably delete this if this blows up badly, since I just want to iterate this one thing; so please, be courteous.
I didn't think I needed to address this at all, actually, but here we are. Please also note, I'm not here to debate with you (edit: Unless you have read all of this very carefully and not just skimmed it like some of you debaters are doing). If you think that it's okay to copy or redraw and then sell the copied art, that's great, please take it up in your own journal or maybe even the forums; i'm sure you'll find a lot of people to debate with there . There's been drama a'brewin' somewhere, don't bring it here, because my issue isn't with the artist in question anymore (for the most part...), but rather with the fans (some who are decent artists themselves so i'm more baffled about that) who think tha

"Ok! ______ (name) your turn!" Axel yelled.
You: Do i have to?
Axel: Yes you do so go over to that bag!
You: I'll get you for this.
I dug my hand into the black bag and dug out a paopou fruit plushie... then Sora stood up, so i was guessing it was his.
Kairi: *whispers* Lucky her...
You: Ummm.... let's go...
Sora: Ok lets get going...
I literally threw Sora into the closet, but i didn't intend to... I was just really nervous. Next thing I knew, I just heard the door click!
Axel: YOU ONLY HAVE SEVEN MINUTES!!!!

He was making such a cute face I couldn't help but blush!

I felt something warm on my lips, then i realized that sora and I were kissing. I kissed back too. I could feel all the emotions and feelings that i had for
