Ib 1.04!Hello everyone! You guys may not know me, since I don't post journals, but I'm ToxiicLolita and I help out in the group^^Ib 1.04!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, as the title says, there is a new and updated version of Ib!
From vgperson's tumblr:
"Over a year after the release of version 1.02 (and a little less than a year after the release of my translation), Ib has been updated to version 1.04. (1.03 was an intermediate version: 1.02 with smaller filesize, and it was only available on compilation CDs and stuff.)
I may post a complete list of changes later, but here are the big ones:
- The music is compressed, so the filesize is smaller. (About time.)
- There are new paintings and conversations to find in old areas.
- A new branch is available that leads to two new endings.
- After any good ending (read: Ib escapes), you can start the game over, keeping track of your endings and such.
- After you beat the game once and continue as mentioned above

Q and A ZeronisSup guys and girls!Q and A Zeronis9 months ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I want to apologize for not responding to you guys. I get piles of comments and notes on this account.
I know I've been getting many questions via PM and notes on DA and Facebook, but I haven't been able to answer them all. I do read them so keep commenting and sending notes!
I would like to have the opportunity for all to ask me common questions about me or anything art and game related here. I'll look through the comments and update this Journal Entry with new Q&A.
Only request is that you ask some relevant questions and not something too personal and inappropriate.
With that said, ask away!
1. What type of Program do you use? What tablet do you use?I use Adobe Photoshop CS5. I have tried couple other programs like SAI, Alias Sketchbook Pro, and Painter X, but photoshop has all the tools I need to create art.I have Wacom Intuos 5 and Wacome Cintiq 22UX mounted on ergotron arm.

The Truth Behind the Lyrics- WRITING CONTEST! CONTEST TIME!!!!The Truth Behind the Lyrics- WRITING CONTEST!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So! I've announced a while back that there would be a contest to kick off my newcoming as the admin to this group. I've thought about this for a while, trying to come up with some ideas inspired by the ones you guys gave me, and I finally decided the contest theme!
THE TRUTH BEHIND THE LYRICS CONTEST
Music is one of the biggest influences in artists of today, including writers. No matter their melodies, the lyrics always delve deeper into the thoughts of whoever wrote it.
Find a song. It can be any song you like; one you randomly find on Pandora, or one you select from an iPod shuffle. Your task is to create a story with the title of that song.
Obviously, the story has to pertain to its title; it can be pertaining to the story in a metaphorical sense, or in a literal sense. FOR EXAMPLE, if you chose the song "Wires" by The Neighbourhood, you could

And we only have one chance to be here,
So tell me why you're hurting yourself?
I guess I just do not understand (What's the meaning of life?)
Everything I've been told I believe,
And yet people that I love just leave
Is something bothering you a lot? (Bothering you a lot?)
I think I'm old enough to understand,
So there's no reason to hide from me
I know you said that you're not lying… (And well maybe that's true…)
So I'll push away any doubt I have...
Because I know you will tell the truth
Welcome to my perfect world,
According to Angelica!
It's my turn to run the show!
Next to Cynthia~!
With Tommy, Chuckie, Phil and Lil,
I'll never feel alone…
So we can play games all day long,
While the Earth is spinning…
Round and round and round and round and round and round,
While the Earth is spinning
Welcome to my wonderland,
With new adventures everywhere
As long everything's the same,
I will be okay

a girl who holds the hornets in her ribs--
who bubbles hysteria in stings
and bleeding, decaying things--
who's crawled so far back into her shell
that she'll just never be naked again.
Mature themes in American AnimationWhen I first discovered Anime, my mind was blown. Here were Japanese animations being made which told adult stories with sex, violence, and all sorts of things I'd never seen before done in American films. As a teenager the constant pandering to children and the reluctance to accept more mature themes and ideas in American animated films pissed me off. Why can't american cartoons be taken more seriously and have stuff for adults too outside of South Park and The Simpsons?Mature themes in American Animation3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In 1998 Stephen Spielberg tried to change that. After having a successful run of kids cartoons (Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pink and the Brain, etc), he took it a step further by giving us a PRIME TIME cartoon series aimed at adults. It was called "Invasion America." It was a sci-fi epic, featured a slew of big name actors including Leonard Nimoy, and featured more adult oriented themes such as sex, violence, and swearing!
It sucked and was a resounding failure.
The epic plot they were trying to weave would never be compl
Sons of the StormIf something could come close to the excitement that I felt when I first joined Blizzard over 4 years ago (not that that's diminished now!), it would be today, when I'm honored to be joining the ranks of the Sons Of The Storm!Sons of the Storm1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Long before I ever thought that making it out here was at all possible, I looked up to these artists who're the core and spirit of Blizzard's art and essence - and to be ranked among them now is a huge honor - especially on this, as their 10th anniversary!
Thanks to René 'Twincruiser' Koiter for setting the whole gallery up, and of course to Samwise, the original 1st Son, and still the burning heart of Blizzard's art and soul.
Cheers! And here's to another 10 years of the Storm!

And thanks too to everyone here - I don't get around to replying as much as I used to or as I'd like, but having been on dA almost

Lit Contest: The More Things Change...the more they stay the same.Lit Contest: The More Things Change1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Iiiiit's contest time! All original literature welcome.
This is a speculative fiction contest—the technology requirement could cover steampunk, 'John Carter,' 'The Windup Girl,' 'Watchmen,' '2001: A Space Odyssey' or about anything else you can think of. The one thing that isn't permissible is magic.
That was a joke.
Your story must center around the development of a relationship between two entities.
Some things to consider:What kind of relationship is it? (No, "relationship" doesn't have to mean "romance.")Who/what is it between?Is the development positive/negative?
The relationship must be noticeably changed at the end.Distance/death don't count if they're still besties or whatever.I don't mean changed personalities. I mean a changed relationship.
Plausible but (currently) nonexistent technology must be integral to the development of this relationship.Time travel goes forward.Nothing goes faster than light, a

1000 anatomy sketches challengeHello and happy holidays everyone!1000 anatomy sketches challenge5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Since the new year is approaching rapidly, and my mind was on new years resolutions, i thought up a challenge for myself to improve my anatomy. And it would be boring to do it alone so i invite you all to join me.
Here's how the challenge goes:
1. The goal is to reach 1000 anatomy related drawings as fast as possible. There is no deadline.
2. You don't have to start in 2015, you can start now.
3. Comment on this journal with a link to the drawings you made for this challenge. I will keep an eye on this journal and if you comment anywhere else i might not find your comment. Don't link me in a reply though, my reply stack is chaos, you wouldn't want your comment to get mixed up there. I will check new comments every now and then and award points but i won't look through conversations. So if you finished a sketch or a bunch of sketches then come to this journal and write a new comment every time
4. The drawings can be posted anyw
