The regime of Malaysia's National Coalition Front (Barisan Nasional), had bribed to the official recruitment agency of Bangladesh, to allow a huge number of Bangladeshi workers (estimated about 600,000 people) deported from their homeland to Malaysia for such despicable and non democratic action.
We are hereby requesting ladies and gentlemen to provide solidarity supports and necessary assistances for us, to ensure the election can be conducted in clean and fair manners. For more information and evidence, here is the news link: http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-967755.
I just need your vote in this petition. That's all I ask and share this post to help all of us and the future of our country.
I hope this could turn the tides to our favor. Even our police force is corrupted and aiding these phantom voters to tear our chance to have a better government.

The real truth behind where Super Sonic came from!Many people will say that the creator of Sonic was inspired by Dragon Ball ZThe real truth behind where Super Sonic came from!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Which is why there are 7 chaos emeralds. (Which isn't too far off.. But at the same time isn't completely true..)
The 7 Dragon Balls were based from an old Japanese legend of 7 mystical Gems that give you incredible power.
So actually Sonic is more based from the truth of that legend.
Moving on to the Super Saiyan of Dragon Ball Z.
Not a lot of people know this, but that legend was based from a Buddhist depiction of a mediator at full awareness and understanding of self.
As seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XPDf8L-0XEc
(Skip near the end if you don't want to watch the whole thing to see the Super Saiyan guy-thing)
Notice the hair?
(Well in truth it's not actually hair its a lotus flower.
The lotus flower represents a journey from the dirty lower life to blossoming into perfection so the golden lotus represents the perfect ascended being infinity blooming from the head with awareness.)

So I'm currently reading a book with a ton of interviews from famous photographer and I wanna do the same for the next blog, so if you want, here's a few questions (but not limited to just these) for you to answer
1) How did you first get started into photography
2) Who and what are your influences
3) Have you ever been published or received a DD? If so, what piece? (include the thumbnail if you want).
4) What kind of education do you have in photography, or are you self-taught
5) Have you ever worked in the field of photography
6) Do you think it's important to have a philosophy
7) What advice would you give to an upcoming photographer
1. For me, photography came with an urge to learn more, to watch different kinds of art more, to experiment, after I foun

OK, so many of you have heard this already, but there's a hacker going around on DA, he's getting into peoples accounts, and even worse, he deactivates them completely. There is a way to avoid this though, if you ever get an email from nobody@Da.com or something like that, asking you to change your passwords, don't do it, it's a trick to get your account hacked, just delete the email as soon as possible.
IF A PERSON CALLED SIMON ASHTON ( SIMON25@HOTMAIL.CO.UK ) CONTACTS YOU THROUGH EMAIL DON'T OPEN THE MESSAGE. DELETE IT BECAUSE HE IS A HACKER!!
TELL EVERYONE ON YOUR LIST BECAUSE IF SOMEBODY ON YOUR LIST ADDS HIM THEN YOU WILL GET HIM ON YOUR LIST. HE WILL FIGURE OUT YOUR ID COMPUTER ADDRESS, SO COPY AND PASTE THIS MESSAGE TO EVERYONE EVEN IF YOU DON'T CARE FOR THEM AND FAST BECAUSE IF HE HACKS THEIR EMAIL HE HACKS YOUR MAIL TOO!!!!!...

Anyone have point commissions open (closed)Update: I'm waiting on some replies and then when I do find out exactly how much some of the stuff I've ordered will cost, I might open this again.Anyone have point commissions open (closed)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I checked my card and I had some money left so I bought 800 . Does anyone have point commissions open? Also if you don't have them open, you can suggest someone who you know is reliable to me as well . I might not be able to buy more for a while so don't expect me to be able to commission anyone again for a couple of months unless I open commissions myself ^^
The only thing I ask is that you be able to do one of these: humans, kemonomimi, boys, and girls.
Things I'm specifically NOT interested in: anthro, literature, icons, realism (unless it is :iconrandomeries: I loved that request you kindly did for me a while back) and crafts. If I think of more I will update.

Finally the DBZ Group out-takes I'M SO SORRY THIS TOOK SO LONGFinally the DBZ Group out-takes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kita was ages ago now however I really have been so busy yes that old chestnut but it's true
ANYWAY I'm here now to make it up to you as I'm about to type up this long photo-journal, so I hope you enjoy-
To start off I suppose I should tell you a bit about the group. I formed it in 2011 as a group on facebook with just a few friends not really expecting many people to join but having it out there just incase, to my delight friends of friends saw it and other people saw it on the Kitacon forum and it wasn't that long before we actually had quite a few people. We arranged to meet up on the Sunday in the afternoon and due to infuriating costuming issues (near enough my entire costume was made at the convention because it was so last minute I'd brought a whole bag full of cosplay making bits and bobs) I was actually late to meet everyone for the group which I felt awful about but it was only half an hour at most. oops! thankfully everyone wa

an introduction to my Anthro universe.. :PI got a question the other day, about what dog breed Sam and Saunders in their anthro form is supposed to be.an introduction to my Anthro universe.. :P2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started answering the comment, but soon found out it would just end up being a looooong reply... And I thought, as I wrote, that maybe others would be interested in what breed they and their relatives are, as well as Spike's breed, some character origins, how the people (or anthro) in my little fictive universe views their fellow inhabitants, and a bit of history around this whole thing.
Therefore, I'm deciding on writing a journal entry about this.
The different breeds.
Saunders and Sam were originally, when I first created and designed them, supposed to be Golden Retrievers. Thus, they did in fact both have floppy, furry ears just like the Golden has. For some reason, I felt this made the characters look sad, so I changed - I think - Saunders' ears first to stand up just like a Terrier's ears. Sam's ears changed shortly after. I kept this change as I thought it ma
Necks for anatomy practiceI need to see loads of examples before I can get something. So here's loads of necks doing the weird necky things that necks do.Necks for anatomy practice2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To get what's going on with the tangle of muscles and tendons catch necks in action. Watch people in cafes. Pause TV. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer has particularly good lighting for drawing.) Then check out how cartoonists simplify the confusion. Maybe even check out some anatomy to see what's going on beneath the skin. Each gives you a different piece of the puzzle.
Organized by where the head is relative to the shoulders, then by where the camera is. So each group should have the same muscles and tendons bulging out. (If you post drawings from any stock here, do check the stock artist's rules.) NOTE: Images marked with ⬅ are NOT stock. Use them for practice, but don't post. (There's only one image marked since there's so much great stock.)
If you stumble across good neck stock, especially with good shadows, I'd l

I'm sure many of you don't know the story of what I've been up to, so I'm going to summarize a very long story for you.
Back in April 2012, I posted an image of me holding my original HTTYD movie ticket, and had a long story of how the movie changed me. A friend by the name of Jeffrettalyn suggested I send the letter to Dreamworks, to hear what they have to say.
I was in my last semester of school at the time, and around the same time, a friend of mine suggested I make a plush and send it to Dreamworks. After spending some time thinking and questioning others about it, I decided to go forward with it when I could, and send both together.
I believe it was September 18th when I finally started working on it, and I didn't finish it until late February! After pouring in more time into this Toothless plush than any other before, I hesitated to send it away, for I had grown quite attached to it. I talked with many people, and tried to get as much support as possible. 5 Weeks
