Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.So... I've been downloading Devil May Cry OSTs And while listening to "I'll be your home" I realized something- About my Rants and Raves towards the new DmC:Reguarding The New DmC: We'll be okay.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's Nothing we can do. Nothing
But thats okay- Because they can't simply come in and take away the Dante, the emotions, the love, the hate, the frustration of being stuck on Vergils last battle and finally screaming "TAKE THAT YOU WHORE!!!!" at the screen at the end of the game!!!! No. They can't.. they can't take what they've already given us.
This new game is much like a cold: All we have to do is lay back, relax and it'll go away.
I can't wait for it to come out- perhaps if not many people enjoy it they may realize how many are outraged.
I complain not. Its a good thing I'm not a Devil...
Because I'm bawling. Crying. Sobbing. All and any derivitives for the tears inside me. To be a nerd and quote the song I'm sobbing to: "The tears inside me calm me down"
Thinking about that reminds me of DMC3's last few cutscenes...

As always~ English is not my native language so you might come across mistakes. My apologies! If anything is unclear feel free to ask me in the comments.
I'm just showing you what works for me and what's my personal liking. I'm focusing on eye make-up and additional tips. If you think this way of doing a boys cosplay make-up is is using way too much make-up that's totally fine. Everyone has his/her own preferences and this tutorial is just a hint who it can be done.
The shape of eyes differ a lot from one to another, so if you want to try it the way I do my make-up you might have to adjust it to your own eyes. Maybe you have already run into this problem before while seeing a well done eye make-up in a tutorial or worn by an asian cosplayer. Furthermore be aware of the fact that the shape of your eyebrows, wearing c

Mary Sue is the new foot binding.If you don't know what foot binding is, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot_bindingMary Sue is the new foot binding.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Why do I draw a comparison between these two? I will explain why.
Foot binding is a classic example of a sexist practice where women are limited, quite literally and in a physical sense, to the point of serious disabilities in order to live up to a certain image of feminine beauty. A notion, if you will, of what females should be. The usage of the Mary Sue term works the same way.
Yes, I know what Gary Stus are, and yes, I know they exist. However, in the case of most male characters, it's far more acceptable to make them strong/intelligent/cunning/resourceful/capable or even more than one of these.
For female characters, this is not so. The second they show themselves to be even slightly above average in any kind of way, no matter how well-balanced they are otherwise, they're termed Mary Sues. It becomes unacceptable to even think, for one second, that female fictional charact

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone!Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.
EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

From all over people have expressed how they feel about it. People have gone into large detail on what they like about this.
I want to talk about anxiety in general and how the image came about.
3 years ago I was hit hard by the disorder. It was so bad I got suicidal at points. Not the attention starving kind. Seriously contemplating it. Life was hell.
To someone who hasn't experienced it. I'll try and describe it from my own experience and point of view.
At any random point in the day I can get these attacks. During these attacks I'm overwhelmed with the feeling of imminent death. No rational thinking can erase the thought or feeling. Imagine having a gun held to your head. And you know it's going to go off. You just don't know when. That's what happens when I experience an attack.
I get these daily.
I hide it well from people around me. By just walking away. Or keeping to myself a lot.

I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat

And everything I had been scared of receded like a fleet of ships into the distance. And they moored there. On the horizon. They weren't completely gone but some commanding officer had said 'let's just leave the habour for a bit, shall we? Let's go where the blue turns to green. Okay? Let's empty this bay for a while.'
So I lay in bed in only my underwear with my sheets pulled tight around me and I could feel my heart fluttering. Not like a human heart. More like a wing. One wing of a very small bird. Creating a breeze in my body between my ribs and up into my throat.
I actually raised one hand to check it. My heart, I mean. I placed my fingers between my breasts and felt for the beat. I expected it to be racing. To feel it as a blur. A quiver. Like a plucked string but

1) A1-sized black matt paper, plus a black corrugated board as a common base for most of my shots. The Bras Basah outlet of ArtFriend is my best friend (no pun intended) when it comes to craft materials.
2) The transparent plastic tray that holds your nendoroid, it helps to produce great lighting effects!
3) The quintessential figma stand. That's how I get all of them to stand on their own. Most tedious aspect of the session, since it must be kept in the blind spot.
4, 5) Speedlights remotely triggered via my pop-up flash. Gel them, adjust their positions and output power till you achieve the desired effect. Heck, try out different gels too!
6) Another speedlight as key on a lightstand, and I usually deploy it with a 1/4 CTO for subtle warmth. Again, try out other corrections to achieve other effects!

Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!http://devilmaycry.org/community/threads/official-incoming-dmc-art-book-reveals-vergil-is-neros-father.15205/Devil May Cry- Vergil confirmed as Nero's father!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So apparently the newest DMC artbook confirms that Nero is Vergil's son, but from what I've been reading in that forum, a lot of plot ideas got mixed around, dropped, or simply unused, plot contradictions and timing contradictions.
I've taken Japanese for three years and although I've forgotten 90% of it, I'm still pretty familiar with the basics and understanding sentence possessives. In the first post when scrolled down to the bottom of it, it shows a picture with Japanese text with two white circles.
The first circle is Nero's name in katakana. The second circle is saying Vergil's with a possessive. So "Baajiru no..." and then something, something in kanji. I can't read kanji so the sentence would have to say something to the affect of using the japanese words for father being "otousan" or "chichi".

On TES elvesAlright can I just say how much I love the elves in the Elder ScrollsOn TES elves1 year ago in Personal More Like This
J.R.R. Tolkien popularized elves as these otherworldly, divinely beautiful creatures which sorta established the standard for the race in all modern fantasy that came after. They're nearly immortal, distant, and to me, plain boring. Then around comes Morrowind, the game that really made me fall in love with TES, its world and its lore!! The elves of TES have a long history, and each subrace has their own cultural identity. The elves no longer just sit in their Crystal ivory towers (well I guess some of them do) and sing to their trees or whatever - they're flawed, complicated PEOPLE, and extremely proud of who they are. The haughty Altmer, the hostile Dunmer from the Ashlands, the cannibalistic Bosmer, the late Dwemer and their scientific achievements…. when was the last time any elves modeled after Tolkien's work had this much cultural diversity??
I love the fact that Bethesda actually created some of the most inter

That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the
Be comfortable being uncomfortableI was one of those people who were afraid to dream big.Be comfortable being uncomfortable1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I am sure this is a feeling that my fellow readers share with from time to time (if not all the time). Born in a small town in a developing country did funny things to my confidence and self esteem when I was growing up. It seems that life conveniently places roadblocks and detours along the path of my dreams. When I was a toddler, I wanted to be a fighter jet pilot. Only to realise that we don't even make our own airplanes! When I was in high school, I like to doodle and draw comics on the pages of my notebooks. Fellow students love them till my home room teacher found out about my secret doodling time one day. He tore up my book in front of everyone and that killed my comic artist dream instantly. Despite that, my dream to be a creative was too big to ignore and I insisted on doing arts and design after I graduated. Even then, the product of my upbringing still defeats me every now and then.
