Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

Skeletons simultaneously attract and repulse us, much like the contemplation of our one day inevitable deaths.
We would like to as much as possible shut out thoughts of our mortality, even though it is the one thing all human beings have common — the price of being alive is to know we will one day die. Skeletons are always there to remind us of this one grim universally equalizing reality, an iron
Cosplay FAQCOSPLAY FAQ!Cosplay FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Most of the time, I find FAQ to be a little bit pretentious, but I've finally decided to make one simply because, I get one of these questions at least once a week, and while I love giving you all the individual help that I can, those of you who have asked these questions and received answers know they tend to be suuuuper long winded (I have a hard time explaining any other way), and I just don't always have time to answer in as much detail as I like. So here I can make sure I give all the basic info I can think of, but you are more than welcome to note me or comment with any further questions!
First, this one is really more for my sake, but has been asked a few times: Can I make a replication of your (whatever character) cosplay?
Let me first say that I don't feel knowledge belongs to any one person. I am more than happy to explain in detail to you how I have done absolutely everything on any of my cosplays. From makeup to a

Well, we can't be all born with mad talent. But there are certainly ways to speed up the process for you! In the journal here, I listed some tips and tricks that helped me getting to the point where I am now. I thought I'd share them with you. And maybe you can add to the list. I'm always willing to learn.
Give up on being a mangaka -- or hold more realistic expectations
Admit it. Most of us here started drawing manga because we liked the style at a certain point. How awesome would it be to one day become a pro in that field. A real manga artist (or mangaka, like they say in Japan)! The truth is... becoming a mangaka isn't that easy. It it were, many more people would be one. First of all, mangaka's live in Japan. That's the only country with a manga industry big enough to actually ha
How art tutoring should be nowadaysYes. Another one of my rants that starts with a personal experience.How art tutoring should be nowadays2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It was a day like any other, and I was just surfing DeviantArt, browsing the many deviations in my inbox. While I did so, my eye wandered to something that was called an 'tutorial on manga anatomy'. As usual, I was curious about the content. And as the preview image was pretty small, I wanted to check this out. It seems like this girl, let's name her Abbey (it's not her real name, but I think calling her 'that girl' is so damn confusing) had made a tutorial on male manga anatomy. Nothing wrong with that, you'd say. But I've been following Abbey for a while already. I originally met her in the forums, asking for feedback on one of her fanart drawings. Mostly anatomy related stuff. I gave her some tips. We talked a bit. And I followed her soon after, as I thought her art looked pretty promising altogether.
Now, I didn't know Abbey in real life. But she was a beginning artist, nowhere towards a level
Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.Why many artists suck at marketing1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S

When I'm looking through books in a brick and mortar store, I flip to the middle of a book for some reason and then put it on the shelf as if I ever had any intention of buying it (I don't know what compels me to buy a book anymore, to be honest). HOWEVER...
When I am here at deviantART, our supercool scrolling thumb feature allows me to see the first sentence of a story and make the determination on whether or not I want to continue reading. That said... I don't read much around here.
Boy, rhetoric is fun. We know why.
I don't judge a book by its cover but goddamn I will judge a story by its first line. It's called a "hook" for a reason. No one wants to read your story if your opening sentence is

If the severely acne-scarred face and coarse exterior brought on by his alcoholic and depressed life was the book cover of his being, then Charles was the ultimate book that could not be judged by its cover.
The exquisite collection that was this everyman artist’s art consisted of thousands of poems, hundreds of short stories and six novels—mostly all wrenchingly autobiographical, mostly all about moments of epiphany and grace in an otherwise miserable and unhappy existence. The perfect explication of the common man's deepest truth; it's not easy to be here.
Unvarnished and brutal blunt force trauma underlined with hope, beauty, longing, and love.
Therein lies the power of his poet

TO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS...."The advice I like to give young artists, or really anybody who'll listen to me, is not to wait around for inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself. Things occur to you. If you're sitting around trying to dream up a great art idea, you can sit there a long time before anything happens. But if you just get to work, something will occur to you and something else will occur to you and something else that you reject will push you in another direction. Inspiration is absolutely unnecessary and somehow deceptive. You feel like you need this great idea before you can get down to work, and I find that's almost never the case." - Chuck CloseTO THE ASPIRING ARTISTS....2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Weird DreamSo I had this weird/awesome dream last night, here's what happened:Weird Dream2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was in some kind of concert area place, but everyone was waiting for the event to start. I had no idea what it was, but I was hoping it was Hollywood Undead or Linkin Park or something cool like that. The setup was more like a movie theater, but the stage was like something you'd see at a concert. So I'm there alone, just waiting for the damn thing to start or figure out what the hell it was.
Then someone came by and sat next to me, some stranger. I didn't acknowledge or greet him, because you know, kind of antisocial with things like that. Just sitting there waiting for the thing to start. Some time passes by and my eyes started to wander. I noticed the guy sitting next to me has some awesome tattoos, they looked just like the one's that Xavier has, as in the serpent like dragon winding down his arm.
So I'm like "Hey, I like your tattoos dude." And he's like "Thanks." and then that voice, sounds so familiar. And I l

I personally think you brought this argument upon yourself. Oh, and beware, what you post on the internet will most likely haunt you for many generations to come. It's best to not get involved with stuff you aren't familiar with, to avoid future embarrassment.
Now, there is a difference between shipping yourself with a fictional character for real enjoyment, and shipping for "the lulz." Believe me, I ship random people all the time together in the [name] fandom, but only for my watchers' enjoyment, not mine. The point is: "If you ship crack pairings seriously, you're going to go down hill from there."
