Open Letter to Masashi KishimotoDear Masashi Kishimoto-sanOpen Letter to Masashi Kishimoto3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello! I hope that all is well with you and that you are enjoying the weather at this time of year. I know where I live it can't seem to make up its mind and is rain and sun and hail and snow all in the same week.
Now, on to the real reason I am writing a letter.
I just want to thank you for these past few chapters of Naruto. They've been utterly, completely awesome. I can't stop re-reading, over and over, each chapter. Kabuto-san fighting the Uchiha Brothers and Kabuto-san's revelation that he is a dragon both left me completely awestruck. But even more so than that, finally seeing Kabuto's history, after so long seeing him as a scalpel-wielding, experiment-making henchman, is truly an honor and a pleasure. You, Kishimoto-san, have taken this character, a side character that would have been easy to write off as a nobody or kill as a matter of principal, and turned him into this unfathomable person of depth and caliber. The progression of Yakushi Kabuto throu

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED
TOBI IS ACTUALLY OROCHIMARU
LOLOLOL. maybe. we'll see.
but hey! sasuke didn't kill kabuto. SPIFFY.
suigetsu its awkward to touch people while they are sleeping dont you know manners at all. AND HE ISNT GROSS YOU JERK. HE'S A FREAKING AMAZING WHITE DRAGON. SHUT UP. YOU'RE JEALOUS. poor kabuto, molested in his sleep... lololol looks like a giant....yeah...
i thin philosophical!sasuke is my favorite kind of barbie. much better than ragemonster edition.
also can i say i really dont like madara. GOLLY THAT GUY GRINDS MY GEARS. his mother should have called him mary. well, madara is pretty close i guess. Madara-sue...mm.
anyway also anko is still alive. so yay for y'all who didn't forget her.
MAYBE KABUTO WILL GET TO NAP IN PEACE NOW. I still vote for the wake-up-after-the-war-is-over theory.
or maybe he's orochimaru now. probably not.
OKAY BED TIME. G'NIGHT.

Caithe and Faolain cosplay - ProgressHeyaa everyone!Caithe and Faolain cosplay - Progress2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Me and xPandorae have been working on a new cosplay project for a little while now:
Caithe and Faolain from Guild Wars 2! Gods, we love that game so much...
These are planned for Animecon 2013 in the Netherlands from 31 May till 2 June. I reallyyyy hope we can finish them in time!
We already have some make-up tests which my girlfriend (who is going to be Faolain ) just posted here on deviantArt:
I also have some more progress of Caithe which I just felt like sharing.
Paper prototype of Caithe's hair. A lot of tests have to be made to get the right shape of her hair. Right now we are busy making the actual leaves. Hopefully I can show something of that soon. :3
Thank you all.For all of this. Thank you.Thank you all.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't really have a good way to thank everyone properly for all of your generosity. I promise I will draw for you guys forever though. I mean, that's the least I can do. But thank you all.
You've made one stupid dumb person just... so happy. And that person is so fucking lucky to have people like you all around. I don't really know what to say. I've been moved to tears several times in the past week or so. I owe each and every one of you the world.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Skullgirls updatesHey guys a@,Skullgirls updates2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some updates on Skullgirls. Most of this stuff was mentioned already on Twitter and Facebook already anyway, but I figure I could mention it here as well:
The patch for the game is in the works. It will be full of a lot of major improvements and new features, plus extra color palettes for all of the characters.
Back to School Shirt-
Check out the Skullgirls store for a Back-to-School themed shirt! They're available on the site for a limited time only.
Was a fun excuse to draw Mrs. Victoria. owo
I might have said it before, but I always need to thank all of you who have been incredibly supportive and enthusiastic about the game, even in times when things were awfully quiet. Trust us, Skullgirls is still definitely on our minds, and we are still planning many things. There were a lot of other elements that came up that often slowed down progress. I know that is super vague and abstract, and I apologize for that.
Still, though, it is really
Hypno's LullabyCome little children, come with meHypno's Lullaby2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Safe and happy you will be
Away from your homes, now let us run
With Hypno, you'll have so much fun
Oh, little children, please don't cry
Hypno wouldn't hurt a fly
Be free, be free be free to play
Come down in my cave with me to stay
Oh, little children, please don't squirm
Those ropes, I know, will hold you firm
Hypno tells you this is true
But sadly, Hypno lied to you
Oh, little children, you mustn't leave
Your families for you will grieve
Their minds will unravel at the seams
Allowing me to haunt their dreams
But surely, all of you must know
That it is time for you to go
Oh, little children, you weren't clever
Now you shall stay with me forever
And that my friends is why I hate the poke'mon Hypno. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e206skdSBZA

Fursona design - opinions needed!Sorry I'm bothering you again. I thought I'd write this now when I finally have some time (thank God the exams end soon...)Fursona design - opinions needed!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Uhh, how to begin... I feel like the worst person ever, updating my fursona so soon. ;; Or, well, actually what's crucial now is your opinions - I know what I want but I don't know if it's too radical, even if the changes are quite small after all. I'm building a permanent version of my fursona which means that possible future changes will be very small, if there will even be any.
So, a thought about having a meerkat version of my fursona has really grown on me over the years, but the problem is that I don't want any more versions of my fursona (besides the main version I already have a ponysona). At least a thought having two main sonas doesn't sound quite tempting to me.
So, a while ago I had this crazy idea of giving my fursona some meerkat features. Oh, why meerkat? Well, actually it all began with an old joke between me and my friends, one of who s

“ The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life.

A little story...Wanted to share this story with you guys, and future creators:A little story...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After getting out of a slump, I wanted to share this story of something I went through a few years back. Bit of a read, but thanks for sticking through it
As you know, Comic-Con is arriving and as I prepare for it, I grow more and more anticipated with anxiety/joy in regards to the re-release of Last Man Standing.
As long, challenging, and mind-opening the creation of LMS was, something really stuck with me.
Before I had created LMS, I wanted to work for WETA Workshop. To those that don't know them, they've created props, designs, sets, costumes, and more for The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District-9, Elysium, The Hobbit and many more films.
I was obsessed and inspired with them. The creator, Richard Taylor was always a huge inspiration to me. After viewing supplements on the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings DVDS, I knew right there: I HAD TO WORK FOR THEM.
So I al
Things concerning the sudden inactivityAww yeah, deviantART is working again! I just hope it lets me to post this journal entry, which had originally laying around in my computer for ages - even if I knew I would rewrite it?? Well, that's me I guess?Things concerning the sudden inactivity2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many of you can probably guess the reason to my recent inactivity, since now, when I finally can browse my inbox properly, I can see it's not just me having experienced some difficulties in using deviantART lately. You know, you can't remove things in your inbox or browse any pages but the first one, and even the search (which has been the only thing working to me) has been lagging. When the thumbnails stopped working yesterday, I almost thought it all would begin from start but thank god it didn't.
I don't dare to say everything seems to be working again properly because every time I say that something terrible happens, but... Well, I hopethingswillbealraightfromnowon. ;v;
Still, I can't promise to be SUPER active here, because it seems like my illness is coming back, RIGHT wh
IP confusionIt's sad to see people fighting about intellectual property rights when they apparently have no clue what those are, how they work and what is allowed (and not).IP confusion3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Prime example: http://boltstrueno1fanever.deviantart.com/art/Onyx-Forepaw-Feb-2012-Ref-286737985 vs. http://yasuoxingxing.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4vcima
Obviously the latter is similar to the first.
The question is: is this allowed?
To answer that question, it is important to understand what rules apply and what intellectual property (IP) is.
There are three different kinds of IP that can apply here:
As the name hints this is the right to make copies of a work. It does not protect ideas, only the actual recorded work - artwork, documents, music etc.
This means that if someone copies your art (by directly copying it, by tracing it or otherwise adapting your work) you can certainly take action, but there is little you can do to prevent someone else creating their own
Some updates on life - both here and irl...Because I really don't know which word to use for them since the situation is kind of a combo of both good and bad, I think? Uhh I really don't know what I'm blabbering about since I have some real things to tell you about.Some updates on life - both here and irl1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, the thing is, I didn't make it to any of the art schools (well, one of them wasn't actually an art school) I applied for. Yup, laugh at me if you like, but I'm not done yet since I still have one chance to get in. But for that, I really have to improve my skills in traditional art more than ever, which means that I won't have time for digital media for a while. Therefore, don't expect to see too much digital art from me for a bit, except commissions etc.! I'm not too confident about my art in general right now, not to mention the traditional pieces, so I'm not sure if I'll share those. But that'll remain to be seen!
I'll try to work hard on my personal art which surely takes some time, but I'll do my best on making sure that I'll have some time for my li

This attitude is not ok, for many reasons beside it being completely illogical.
1) You don't get to decide who is a geek or not a geek. Period. Geekdom is about acceptance, not rejection. If you're all about Not Liking Other People That Like The Stuff That You Like, you're not a geek, you're a hipster. Who found a pair of glasses.
2) You don't get to decide who is hot and who is not hot. That girl at the con with thick thighs and a little bit of muffin top? She is a perfect 10 in my book, bro. Except that women's bodies aren't up for the judging. Her attractiveness or lack therof does not define her geekiness. The same way that it does not define her social experience. Pretty
