Mako Mori vs Samus AranSo I was watching Pacific Rim for the 50th time the other day and it suddenly dawned on me. Mako Mori is Samus Aran.Mako Mori vs Samus Aran10 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you are all probably aware, I’ve taken a lot of heat in the past for supporting Metroid: Other M, a revolutionary Wii game that had a very unfortunate English translation. The main bulk of Other M’s story focuses on Samus Aran taking orders from her former boss Adam Malcovich as they explore a derelict space station. Her complicated relationship with Adam is a central aspect to Samus’s character, but for reasons that still baffle me, the gaming communities have pretty much ripped to shreds their relationship as being “weak” and “disempowering towards female characters.”
I’ve explained in the past why I disagree with that assessment, but let’s try something else here. Let’s compare Samus Aran to one of the recent pinnacles of strong female characters in FILM: Pacific Rim’s Mako Mori.

Steins;Gate Akihabara location (image intensive)Ever since I got back on track being an anime otaku, I make it a point to check out every title for each season before deciding on which to remove from my list. I'm pretty sure that along with others, I wasn't too impressed by the art-style for Steins;Gate's anime. The pace for the first episode was rather slow too, until the last few minutes which left me with goosebumps and confusion. So I gave ep 2 a try. Even more goosebumps and confusion. When I finally got to talk to a friend about it, it turns out that he has the game and xbox platform. He highly recommended it, and I borrowed the whole set on impulse.Steins;Gate Akihabara location (image intensive)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once I started the game, there was no turning back. The build-up for the storyline was just too awesome. Just as I thought I had reached the climax, it was only mid-point in the game, and from there the turn of events started snowballing as if rolling down a steep slope non-stop. The pace of the story made it very thrilling!!! To think I never thought much about novel games; this

Rayman x Betilla ?since I cant comment on person who uploaded this http://sta.sh/01qoxbqekli8 I decided to write my comment on it in journal formRayman x Betilla ?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
it is truth that Rayman was created by Betilla (+her sisters) thanks to lums and Mystical Moon beams etc... but that doesnt mean everyone must tolerate this.
"I mean....seriously?! Have any of you guys watched the trailer?? "
yes, we have, so what ? we are fans, we are used to make our own vision of Rayman and his world. its not like everybody has same opinions as you or me. I create fan-series based on Rayman but I am not alone who makes fan-series of him. thats same for couples. for example some Rayman-fans like couples that are not actually official in Rayman games (RaymanxFan-character, Mr. DarkxBetilla or Voodoo Mama etc.).
"I mean, do you want to fall in love with your parent?? Gross!!"
there are times when we come up with couples that are just not n

Dear friends and watchers,
5 years ago i joined DA and to cellibrate this, i am holding a contest!! It's called "The Dream of.....".
We all have dreams, some great, some small, some we managed to fullfill and some will always be dreams. That´s life.
We artists here on DA have a gift to put some of our dreams to words, poems and for us manipulators into fantastic images.
Being creative and to visualize the things that come to mind is also a good way to escape the real world for a while and travel to places,
where no man has gone before. Borrowed this from startrek, hope captain Kirk doesn´t mind!
We all love to photoshop, so there has to be some kind of heart in this work what you hopefully want to make!!
The rest is totally up to you to make. All genres are allowed, you are totally free. No specific stock or other restrictions!!
Rules, I thought there were no rul

it was most unusual for him to ask that, and usually i am shit at even promoting my own stuff... if it wasn't for my fans and readers...whoo boy XD
so i stood baffled as to how do i even do this... and then i looked at the files he had sent me...
f&/k it! i know exactly how to go about this!

not kidding! this dude, Adrian Smith, wipes the floor with my value skills and composition skills XD
brilliant designworks, graphic novel is not of the wordy variety as he allows the art to tell the story, and genres and stories being very personal taste based i can't tell you whether or not it will be your c

One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel"Feminism means you can't like sexy things"One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After doing a series of comics standing up for women's rights, there's a lot of really negative rumors going on around me right now. Most of which point to the hypocrisy that I use to draw fetish artwork and that recently I made pin-ups that were "sexy" in nature. Because, of course, if you're an artist who stands up for women's rights from that moment on you're not allowed to EVER draw women in a way that might be construed as potentially "sexy," lest you be labeled a hypocrite.
As I've mentioned before in previous journals, I really can't stand this mentality the internet has of polarizing extremes. You've always gotta be in one extreme or you're in the other. There's never the possibility that you could be in the middle like, you know, a normal person would be.
I understand why that is: it's easier to point out fallacies and bitch and whine about people when they fit into nice neat black and white spec

A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend
