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
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?3 years ago in Personal More Like This

2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!I thought now would be a good time to make the calendar available to the public since they were shipped out to me yesterday! After the successful trial run of last year's calendar, I wanted to make an even better cosplay calendar for 2014!2014 Yaya Han Calendar - it's here!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To summarize: The 2014 Limited Edition Yaya Han Calendar features 12 months of new cosplay images printed on glossy 11x17 paper, which flips open to a 11x24 calendar. Out of the 12 monthly images, only 2 have been released before, all others are brand new and shot exclusively for the calendar. None of the images will be available as a print or poster, you will only be able to see them in the calendar.
FREE shipping within USA and Canada, $10 shipping everywhere else! It is again $24.99, just like last year, and will be signed and personalized by me! I'll post some teaser pics soon but you get a great idea of the calendar's look from the cover and back cover alre

I will made Christmas gift for you all and explain it C: Its not that hard as it seems.
When I write Kirana e-mail what she need to take for this shoot, it was something like "You need 1 pound of floor and 10 small balloons. No. 20 are better." So, how it was done? We put water in 2 balloons and Kirana stand still, Ten and Fei pop balloons with needles after mine "1,2,3!!!" and in that second I took photos. Easy and hard at the same time.
I will give few advices. We tried to use stick with needle, but it was too lame. It made only a small hole and water pop out like...well...it wasnt cool at all. So much better do it with hands using some strength. Also its really hard for mode

i all! I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes from this project as I have already put a lot of work into it and have become quite attached. My friend, Iain, and I have decided to travel for a year together. We both have always wanted to but have never had the opportunity for various reasons, but we've decided that there is no time like the present! We have begun designing products to sell in order to fund our year-long adventure starting in England (where Iain lives), traveling all through Europe, sailing across the Mediterranean, and traveling southeast through India, China, Japan and finally New Zealand. One of our fund raising endeavors is to create a deck of playing cards to sell throughout our travels and via our online store. We imagine a deck that is both unique and stylized, featuring a variety of artists with a range of styles and a common theme of world travel and global commun

I am working on a class project on (you guessed it) Mary Sue characters.
This may seem like an odd question for a university scholar, but the prompt is very interesting to me. Once upon a time I made a Mary Sue character who was perfect in every way and loved to read about Mary Sue characters because they are such an ideal persona. So then, why do so many people dislike or even hate these once beloved creations? Thus, is the reason I search for the UNDERLYING reasons and possible perceptions of these "gods."

What I personally find the hardest to draw is feet and hands. I found that with a lot of practice and a lot of frustrating mistakes my feet and hands actually look at the very least almost the way i want them to be.
Now my favorite Style of drawing is Anime or sometimes semi-realism, and i find that by doing studies of the more traditional style realism actually helps improve my anime pictures greatly. For instance i would practice drawing my hands and feet in different positions holding different things and from different angles. I also find it extremely helpful while i'm drawing and i'm having a particularly hard time drawing a hand or a foot in a certain position i will stop for a

Ok everyone its that time of the week again for another awesome tip from your drunken neighborhood Mtn-Man! So last time I was able to talk to y'all it was about the human figure, and I gave you some rough guide lines and a whole bunch of rambling. So today we'll be continuing that discussion featured in my last Tuesday Tip, entitled Move Yo' Body, Every-Everybody.
Ok, so just a little quick refresher, lets talk about gesture drawing. A gesture drawing is work of art defined by rapid execution. Typical situations involve an artist drawing a series of poses taken by a model in a short amount of time, often as little as 30 seconds, or as long as 2 minutes. Gesture drawing is often performed as a warm-up for a life drawing session.

MetamorphosisMonths back, I wrote a comic about Jane Fitzpatrick's backstory (which is technically completely 'original,' as Jane and her background are totally separated from any Avatar characters or elements) which was accepted to be included in Grayhaven Comics' upcoming project, 'You Are Alone.' The project's Kickstarter was successful, and so this comic that I wrote and DoodleBuggy did a brilliant job bringing to life is supposed to be published later this year. You Are Not Alone will be: "A 200+ page anthology of hope with tales of overcoming bullying, homophobia, racism, depression and abuse." You can find more information about it here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1429812861/you-are-not-alone-1Metamorphosis2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The comic is finally done! And you can read it here:
It is a standalone piece written for elementary/high school students, but it also serves a small slice of backstory for Jane's character.
