Super Saiyan 2's original name, among other thingsAccording to the recent post from the Dbz fansite Kanzenshuu, the SS2 transformation was initially named "Super Saiyan grade 5", long before it was properly named when Goku stated the SS2 name in the Majin Buu arc. Why 5th grade some of you may ask? Thats because it includes the first 4 Super Saiyan forms/powerups of:Super Saiyan 2's original name, among other things2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Super Saiyan 1
Super Saiyan grade 2/Ascended (The muscly power up achieved by Goku, Trunks and Vegeta)
Super Saiyan grade 3/Ultra (The even more muscly powerup that further increases strength but reduces speed achieved by Goku, Trunks and possibly Vegeta, Cell)
Super Saiyan Grade 4/Full power (The calm Super Saiyan state achieved by Goku and Gohan)
Super Saiyan Grade 5-Later known as Super Saiyan 2 (Achieved by Goku, Gohan, Vegeta and possibly others)
Interesting isnt it? For the people who love what-if's, I guess the term "SS5" technically existed in this manner, but not in the way you expected it

So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?Ladies and Gentlemen, due to an overwhelming response of "Yes" on one of my latest polls (I think it was something like 35-3 in favor), I'm going to write this journal about my experiences when it comes to photography, and, in all honesty, a majority of it will be aimed at cosplay photography given that that is what I have done the most of since I decided to get a bit more serious about photography. I also feel like it is very important to say that I'm not at all, in any way, saying that this is the "right" way of doing things. What I write about in this journal, and what I say are my own opinions, formed from 4 years and multiple conventions/outside shoots worth of experience. You all are more than welcome to agree or disagree with me, and I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments section, as well as ask me any questions you might have (PLEASE keep it respectful, folks).So...You Want To Be A (cosplay) Photographer?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

First of all, let me warn you that by the end of this journal entry, you may find yourself sick of my face. (If you aren't already.) I'll be using mostly myself as an example for the things I'm going to discuss, because I'm the only person I can poke fun at without restrictions.
I get asked a lot of questions about these cosplay photos that most of you have come to know me for. Sometimes it's about the techniques we use, requests for tips and advice for other people who want to do something similar. Other times, the comments come from people who aren't familiar with cosplay, but are curious about it and are interested to know more. So I thought of making this li

Catwoman Costume Making ArticleCatwoman Costume Making Article2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I finally get to translate article about my “Batman Returns” Catwoman costume. And just right time for Halloween x)
I'm very sorry if there are mistakes in the text! And I'm sorry that there are no wip photos, I did not make them, unfortunatelly. But in this article I tried to upload the materials, that helped me to make my own costume.
Well, first of all few words about why I chose this version. I’m a cat person, I always had cats at home and I love them very much. So it’s not a surprise that I also love such an amazing character as Catwoman. And my first meeting with her happened, when I was a child thanks to Tim Burton’s movie “Batman Returns”. I was amazed by Michelle Pfeiffer’s acting and since then her Selina Kyle is the only one for me. She’s beautiful, dangerous and a little crazy, exactly how Catwoman should be. I always loved the stories about transformation of

And since tumblr has a following size that's a third of my dA, a lot of people may be missing my WIP shots. So I hope it won't bother anyone that I make and update journals that show my process. I hope you'll find them interesting and inspiring. And also, I hope people will stop asking me what program I work in lol on top of the fact that it's listed in my interests under Tools of the Trade, I've also had a FAQ made so please check those before asking questions.

Even NASA Confirms - Abilities Gained Through Sungazing
Ever wanted to be in more than one place at a time? That's right, I'm talking about the super-human abilities that can be gained by those who follow the protocol for what's known as sun-gazing, a valid practice recently confirmed by NASA. Many proponents of this ancient technique, used by many cultures such as Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetian and Indian yoga, report not only healing benefits to common illnesses, but obtaining super-human abilities such as advanced telepathy and going completely without the need for food.
What is Sun Gazing?
Sun gazing (also known as sun-eating) is a strict practice of gradually introducing sunlight into your eyes at the lowest ultraviolet-index times of day – sunrise and sunset. Those who teach the practice say there are several rules to the practice. First, it must be done within the hour after sunrise or before sunset to avoid damaging the eyes. Second, you must be

5) Jak and Daxter.
I really love the first Jak and Daxter game. It's exactly how I imagine typical but good platform game. Nice Character designs, wonderfull fantasy world, some small but nice humor, a decent story, good gameplay and some good and creative missions.
Then there was part 2... and for my taste, specially in compare with part 1, it was horrible. The nice livehearded fantasy world got replaced by a clichee dark alternative evil future world and lot of The Characters (accept Daxter) where totally uninteresting, the control of vehicles was terrible, specially if you have time limit, its impossible!
Noting so much against going a bit more dark, but in my opinion they got way too quick way too dark, leaving nothing left of what make part 1 so great...
So I would like to see a reboot of p
10 Game Cliches we wish were real...(not by me)10 Game Cliches we wish were real...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Who says that video games warp the minds of kids? I grew up playing video games, and I turned out OK. That being said, there's a few things from the world of video games that I find myself wishing worked in real life. I've compiled a list of those cliches from video games that would make life so much more awesome. So let us begin.
Wouldn't you just love checkpoints? About to ask a girl out for the first time? Ready to skydive at 20 thousand feet? Had enough with your job and feeling like telling your boss where to shove it? Why not hit up a quick save point first, just in case things don't go according to plan? That way, you can always reload if you need to. Saving often even allows you to explore multiple paths before choosing the one with the best outcome. In other words, punching your boss in the face may not be the right way to go, but with a save point, you could try it out anyway!
No Fall Damage
Gravity, ahh. It's something always holding us do
