On Justin.It goes without saying that this is probably the hardest thing I've ever had to write. How do you describe the impact that your absolute best friend has had on you, even in death? How do you write about your idol taking his own life? How do you put into words your feelings about someone that you were so known for adoring that your name will forever be inextricably linked to his? I'm not sure if I even can, but I'd be damned if I didn't at least give it a try.On Justin.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
By now, it's common knowledge. Justin Spencer Carmical, an Internet reviewer known to many as JewWario and my best friend in all of time and space, died by his own hand on Thursday, January 23, 2014. And as has been said, anyone that knew Justin, a group that I am so incredibly proud to call myself a part of, is most shattered by the fact that the way he left us was the polar opposite of his personality -- at least outwardly, as we all now know.

My Two cents on Portfolio ReviewsYou know, I see quite a bit of portfolio on a regular basis, and even more so when I go to comic con and CTN.My Two cents on Portfolio Reviews1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This time around was the same thing, I saw quite a few portfolios. Some good ones and some that miss the mark.
There were a few in particular that caught my eye.. a few extremely good ones, and a few that just didn't work, and I wanted to try and share my opinions about portfolios in general.
This is just my point of view, based on MY experience and definitely not a definitely law, rule, or "must do". Just what I noticed in many student's and young professional's portfolios.
The first thing that strikes me is how similar portfolios can be from one student to another..I can almost always tell when one student is from Art Center, San Jose State, Otis, Sheridan or any other major school. It's a good thing and a bad thing. Mainly a bad thing though
Just a few personal thoughts on portfolios since I just came back from comic con and saw a ton over there.
Your portfolio should be a r

I got to experience pretty much everything you guys mentioned in the last journal xD though not to such extremes in some cases. Overall everything was ok. China was cool and HK of course is shopping heaven. I'll make a better post later after I sort out all these photos. Most of the pics I took are of weird things... =3=
But anyway before that!!!!!!!!!!!!
When I was in Shanghai, this little sparrow (?) flew over and landed near me, so I approached it like I always do when I spot birds, expecting it to fly off when I try to poke it..but it didn't 80! So I picked it up.
Sorry for the crappy photos, my dad took them and he never focuses on the right thing OTL
I carried it around with me for the rest of our time in that area, but then left it behind cause I c

BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(Hi people!BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday I went to ZOO Olomouc with my great friend amrodel - she has never been to this ZOO and because it is one of my the most favorite animal facilities, I really wanted to show her! And because amrodel is a lion lover and because baby lions were born in Olomouc, we could not have a better opportunity to meet! It is always a pleasure to see :devamrodel and we really had fun. It was fantastic to watch whole lion family - father imon was so desperate, because his babies wanted to play with his tail! He really seemed very unhappy about it. But we had fun.
Thank you for great meeting and for a great present (amrodel gave me a printed version of her famous and beautiful photo of my beloved wolf Lobo), friend
In the ZOO, I saw also something which took my breath away - I will show you later!
But after I got back, I got some leight gastric problems. I had them also today, but it was very far from anything serious. But during this eve

In this raffle happens something that wasn't happened to me : one of my close friends won ;v;
Around of deviantart there are many many many fake raffle/giveaway/contest that people did only for visibility and every time some of their friend won , I usually don't participate because it's tiring know to never have a chance.
In my previous raffles people I don't know won my prize and I was really happy for them , because everyone need to have the same chance of each other ;v; , this time I was really really surprised to see the name of my friend , I have to be really honest to you , I think to choose another name becase "oh no people can think I cheated" but this would be very dishonest and unfair to her and I

Save Elephants from Train Accidents in IndiaThis week, a passenger train in eastern India plowed into a herd of elephants. Seven of the animals were killed, including two babies, and at least ten others were seriously injured.Save Elephants from Train Accidents in India8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Though the terrified herd ran away at first, they eventually returned to the railway tracks to mourn for hours before forest guards and railroad workers drove them away again.
Railway authorities have repeatedly ignored requests from the forest ministry department to reduce their speeds inside the elephant corridors. As a result, at least 50 elephants have been killed by trains since 2004 in West Bengal state alone. Ironically, Indian Railways' mascot is an elephant calf.
These intelligent, compassionate animals deserve to be protected from suffering these horrible deaths. Tell India's railway authorities to implement safety measures to stop elephants from getting struck by any more trains!

Twenty-five years ago, under strong international pressure, in which Jacques Cousteau was a key leader, the International Whaling Commission enacted a moratorium on international commercial whaling.

Hawaiian monk seals are the only pinniped species (seal, sea lion, or walrus) that is found exclusively in the United States. The monk seal faces impending extinction (within 50 years) as a result of habitat infringement, entanglements, contaminants, food limitation, and other threats. In addition to contributing to biodiversity, monk seals are a top marine predator and play a vital role in the ocean ecosystem; their loss would likely have ecosystem-wide repercussions.

As such, I'm going to make one complete, constantly updated directory here.
Feel free to make your requests here as well. Just leave me the name of the series and the character (they have to be chibi though, they fit better in the folders lol). I actually prefer to do sets as opposed to singles, so don't be shy in requesting more than one. I reserve the right to decline (though I likely won't without good reason.) I can't guarantee they'll get done quickly or at all, but no harm in trying, eh?
