A little story...Wanted to share this story with you guys, and future creators:A little story...5 months 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

Sonic Re-bootI have heard two rumors so far, SEGA giving away Sonic to Nintendo and the Sonic Re-boot.Sonic Re-boot4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am not sure but the Sonic 're-boot is not real. Whew! It is only a simple rumor.
What is the Sonic 're-boot about?
The Sonic 're-boot is just a rumor, but lemme explain. SEGA is going to "delete" the Sonic characters. For instance, Amy Rose, Miles "Tails" Prowler, Shadow, etc... and what I have heard, they are going to change Sonic' s appearance. Sad, right?
When is it going to happen?
Next year. I don't have the exact date. Sorry.
Now onto the other rumor. (I move real fast)!
SEGA is gonna give away Sonic to Nintendo. I don't know why... I guess they have become TOO much of friends. LOLz
I don't believe any of these are gonna happen, but oh well. What can I say?
And that is it.
Bye! God bless.
Fanart haters you better readHey guys! Its been about a month since my last entry and I felt like this needed to be discussed or at least brought up. (Because there isn't anything more important..yeah)Fanart haters you better read5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Lately I've seen a lot and I mean A LOT of people on this site close their accounts because of bullying, and its not because they stole art its because of the art they created (actually several rather famous artists have deactivated their accounts because of so.) Usually its either because the person creates distasteful fan art or writes poor fan fictions. SO? Just because you may not like something a person makes doesn't mean you have to harass and belittle them. So what if their grammar is poor? So what if their art is not up to standards or is distasteful? Nobody said you had to look at it! Why is there all of this hate? Well, a lot of those self proclaimed critics of fan art claim they that are trying to clean up or purif

An official press release went out today announcing that the Mass Effect 3 post release content schedule will provide a more fleshed out experience for our fans.
"BioWare will expanding on the ending to Mass Effect 3 by creating additional cinematics and epilogue scenes to the existing ending sequences. The goal of these new scenes is to provide additional clarity and closure to Mass Effect 3."
The “Extended Cut” will help answer some questions and give closure to the chapter of the Mass Effect story.
"We are all incredibly proud of Mass Effect 3 and the work done by Casey Hudson and team," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Co-Founder of BioWare and General Manager of EA's BioWare Label.

Poor Edric has been trapped in the fade for months.And no. I haven't left DW to rot in the darkest corner of my brain yet. The story still plagues me to no end, and for it to stop bothering me, it has to be drawn. Haha. Thank you to those who are still in this with me. Thank you for all the love you have given my pet project.
If there's one thing an artist is sure of, it would probably be the fact that every artist is caught up in a perpetual battle against one's own skill. The moment you first pick up that pencil is the moment you start competing with your self. An artist is caught in a life-long quest to improve his craft.

Kyle finished ME3RANT TIEMS!Kyle finished ME32 years ago in Personal More Like This
As always, unpopular opinion, but I kinda liked it. It was a little loop holy, yes, but It made sense too me to an extent especially since Jill died. Yes. Jill died. I did not get a cut scene where she gasps for air back in London, or whatever it looks like. I'm not sure if I want this to be a 100% canon or what, but for now, it makes sense. I've expected my Shepard to die, ever since I heard about ME3 back in 2010. "Welp! Jill's gonna die!" She died, but she died a hero.
Aren't I sad that my Shepard, that invested a year worth of comics, went through many heartaches and hard decisions with perished? OF COURSE I'M UPSET! I burst crying when I realized she's gone, and my husband had to pass me a tissue, is how bad I cried. I honestly expected no less, as it seemed like a logical end for hero of the galaxy. I'm very upset, and I feel extremely empty right now, but something like this, can be easily fixed by going back few saves (/trollface/)
Over all, I liked

TralalaSo, my manager finally got an antique violin I've been eyeing for months "appraised". I put that in parenthesis because all 3 people couldn't get a definite number on it. All three said "well, it could be worth anywhere from $100 to $5,000." There's no way of finding out which Hopf family member or sub member made the damn thing. I personally searched for 4 hours trying to find the particular stamp/burn style in the neck to no avail.Tralala2 years ago in Personal More Like This

What I have been up to?Many of my faithful watchers have been asking lately whether I am alive, what happened, whether I am still drawing.What I have been up to?5 months ago in Personal More Like This
The truth is, I am alive, working full-time, and not drawing much.
About 6 months ago a friend of mine got me into BL / Yaoi, so I spent the past few months writing and illustration some stories of that genre. Yes, explicit. I needed to get some of my negative energy out somehow, and this seemed good enough. It was surprisingly amusing, especially after being severely influenced by Junjou Romantica and Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi. Those series are too adorable.
Surprised? So was I. Who knows what else I might discover in some dark corner of my mind. XD
And how have you guys been?

Story, If you'd like to read
I am trying to pay a debt that I have with the bank and they are charging me $690 USD (what I originally missed paying) and $930 of taxes. (They were charging 40% taxes even if I was paying on time and then I stopped being able to pay on time because the money I was able to put went to pay for the taxes and not the actual money I owed.) After I stopped being able to pay regularly, this amount escalated to $1790, which I haven't been able to pay so far.
The money I have been earning goes to house expenses and material to go to conventions to sell art and then that money back to house expenses again in a vicious circle. xD
I received a mail in which it said that if I pay before the 19th of April, I would only have to pay the $690 no taxes. But since I only have 10 days to pay it seems really difficult for me to

Requesting Aid To Anime FannatikuHonestly, I don't normally post things like this-- requesting shares and contributions from my friends and followers-- but this particular instance is a little closer to my heart and I feel like it's important that I help out as much as I can.Requesting Aid To Anime Fannatiku9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Anime Fannatiku is Southern Utah's very own modest-sized anime convention. Despite it's small nature, this convention has been running strong in the community for years and it has played an important role in bringing the local anime/comic/cosplay interests together. In 2011, I was fortunate enough to share my second Artist Alley table with them and it was one of the most memorable convention experiences I've ever had.
Last week, Anime Fannatiku completed it's seventh successful two-day event, Fannatiku Fest 2013. Unfortunately, during this event, they took a big hit when an unscrupulous individual stole a video projector that was being borrowed from the hotel. Understandably, the convention staff
Well known tales with a twist (chronomancy)On a forum I run someone opened a thread and explained how he tried to run the tale of Robin Hood in AD&D 2. He still plays that game, and it is still my favorite edition. So I thought about what went wrong and what can go wrong with that concept. Of course one of the key problem is: The players already know the story. The secound key problem is: if we focus on same characters then "good roleplaying" would mean they act as it was written in the original story.Well known tales with a twist (chronomancy)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
How to fix both problems? If the players don't play the original characters or normal main characters of the legend, but play some character who already know the story. I remembered the book "Chronomancer" and one of the kits that is there. Someone who went back in history to experience some of the glorious battles in person. If we think about that Kit or let some NPC or item send the PCs back and forth in time we have exactly this opportunity. But how would I create a campaign based on time travel, visiting important moments of

Was Bakura really Bakura when he was Bakura?I don't think Bakura's soul was sealed away with Atem's at the end of the series. Especially since Bakura split his soul all over the place, sealing it in different things. Kind of like horcruxes. I know his main bulk is within the Millennium Ring, but maybe it's possible for him to still be in existence well after the ending arc. And we just saw the Millennium Items fall into an abyss. They might be able to be excavated again. But then maybe the soul in the ring isn't even Bakura's original soul...you know, the thief from Egypt. Maybe it really was Zorc in control the entire time. The Thief King was very confused when he melted away into sand, remember? But it gets kind of gray in that area. Who was really in control at what time, which Bakura was the real one? Was it the thief, Zorc, or some crazy hybrid-Bakura? It's so hard to tell, and nothing's really been extensively explained.Was Bakura really Bakura when he was Bakura?10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Not quite sure but...Is it me, or do fanatics of OC x Canon pairings like myself seem a little more...Not quite sure but...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hostile, as of late?
I'm not sure how to describe it, and it's not only in Fan-Pairing Fans, it's in general Fandom appreciators. I don't know, it just seems like the stronger the belief of one person, the deeper a conflict can stir from other people. Ignorance isn't exactly the term, but... The rantings, going on and on about "Who should be with who" and "My idea of the fandom is more accurate than your's", it seems more like a playground toss-about rather than an actual Adult conflict.
People here and on other sites seem to have it in their head that they are the 'big shit', and really it's quite childish. Most of what I hear now is "Oh, well you have your own ideas of the fandom too, you're just mad because I have more people to back me up than you do!"
Buddy, you should be fending for yourself here.
I notice whenever there is a conflict on dA or other chatting sites, the people with the more watchers

Homophobia is the third big whammy against discrimination, with racism and sexism being the first and the second. None of them have been totally eradicated (and probably won't ever be) but the signs of improvement over the years are now quite visible. There are far less ethnic supremacists than there ever used to be, there are plenty of women who are more successful than men these days, and in an increasing amount of places in the world gay people are finally getting equal rights. Homosexuality has always been under scrutiny from the church, more than any other body of people, but even that has begun to turn - slowly but surely. Many churches are realising that gay marriage isn't a massive imposition on their particular religion, and that legalising it doesn't even necessarily require them to perform mari
