this year that will end soon has been a one of the most wonderful experiences I have had, all those dreams and thoughts of being a real artist have been fulfilled after a year taking multiple classes meeting amazing artists, I could have never dream of metting, friends with the same passion and drive, motivation to keep me going for forever, I've found all of that, in one year adventure.
the previous year I said I wanted to be a concept artist and that was my goal, but I've found that I can't stop exploring and trying new things, which has changed they way I do my artwork and made me see that animation art is where I want to go, and where i'm going, amazing artist like Shyoon Kim, Tron Mai, Jay Oliva, Mark McDonnell, Andrew Cawrse and many more have influenced my life in a way I never though before it could happen.
SO, what happen at the end. I've found m
Texas Abortion Bill FilibusterIn case you live outside the USA and haven't heard of this yet, Texas was preparing to vote on a radical bill that would effectively outlaw abortions within their boarders. Senator Wendy Davis came in early in the morning with the expressed intent of filibustering: The goal being to delay the critical vote.Texas Abortion Bill Filibuster2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wendy Davis talked for 11 hours straight. No food. No drinks. No bathroom breaks. She couldn't even pause for a moment to take a sip of water or else she'd give up the floor and the vote could get underway. 11 hours straight she talked and just before the midnight cutoff she was interrupted, and the vote began... only to become absolute pandemonium as the crowd watching protested the interruption.
The GOP insists that the vote carried and passed, while the Democrats insist that they were still taking votes after the midnight cutoff thanks to the chaos that ensued. This is going to be one of those instances where the GOP are gonna try to lie and shove their way through our diplomatic

i practiced abour 17 yeears now to get this bunch of mostly self taught techniques to work
most of my stuff is a digital painting now, made or drawn in photoshop cs3. never switched higher as cs3 satisfied all my photoshoppin needs
i used to do quite a bit of modelling in 3d studio max, but it was too technical of a program so eventually i gave it up and completely switched to zbrush as it provided me with excellent set of organinc modelling and texturing tools

Zuko will continue to adapt to his role as Fire Lord
The Search takes place immediately after The Promise ends
Gene Yang and Team Gurihiru remain as the creative team
We will see how Azula’s stay in the mental institution has affected her
Katara and Aang’s relationship will develop more, but will be a very minor aspect of the story

If you like this article, please add it to your favorites to help spread the love for the art and artists within.
It is widely known that many famous artists, composer, and authors have had the frustration of having a work they felt was sub-par gain huge popularity while pieces they worked harder on and adore sat un-noticed. This is the same for everyday deviants. I recently ran a poll asking for deviants to share with me their thoughts on this and share their own art. Here are some of the answers--the first piece being the most faved and the second being the one they wished had more love. More will be featured in future articles.

Custom Breaking Bad FiguresCustom Breaking Bad Figures4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I sculpted up a few portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White from my favorite show "Breaking Bad". I was finally able to put the finishing touches on 3 custom figures of Walt, all of which were given to the creators of the show this past week.
It's been a helluva lot of fun, and a tremendous thrill to get to meet the artists behind this terrific show that has been so inspiring to me. Kinder people you will not meet!
So here's a look at the finished custom figures. These were pieced together from various sources, using Hot Toys bodies, and clothes I found on ebay and then altered. The heads were all painted by some talented friends of mine, and they really brought Walt to life. It's been a lot of work to try and piece these together in my free time, but I really enjoyed doing it.
ps- A random winner was chosen from my last giveaway. I'll do another giveaway in the coming months, I'm sure. thanks!
Nick ParkWell I am sure this is a name a lot of you are familiar with! But for those of you who need an introduction to him, Nick Park is stop motion animator who works for Aardman Animations in Bristol. So to name a few works that you may be familiar with are Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep and Creature Comforts.Nick Park3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
His works have been nominated for and also won quite a few BAFTA awards and Oscars.
He continues to work with traditional stop motion animation and plasticine, so the old 'move it a bit and take a photo' technique. His first feature piece for Aardman, A Grand Day Out, was a student project at the time. This was funded by the studio which allowed him to continue to work on it part time whilst continuing his studies. This became a huge hit and was nominated for an Academy Award for Animated Short Film. Unfortunately he lost this award to another short, Creature Comforts, which was also his work anyway!
His animations have graced British TV for many years and it has gained a lot of a

What's Dreamtalia? - Disclaimers
DREAMTALIA (or in Japanese language, Yumetalia "夢タリア") is a WIP RPG original fangame, created by :iconkyokyo866: and :iconpianodream: , on the anime/manga series Axis Powers Hetalia. It features numerous characters from the series as they live through surreal, original adventures. The genre of the game is described as Adventure/Fantasy with a dash of Horror.
It can be considered as a large western-made HetaGame project, and aims to be broadcasted on Youtube and possibly NicoNicoDouga, in a similar manner to RomaHeta, HetaQuest or HetaOni. However, Dreamtalia's storyline has nothing related to the mentioned series.
The original plot of Dreamtalia was inspired by a roleplay session Kyo and insertAWESOMNESS had, which was then rewritten and turned into a whole story by Piano and Kyo.
Please take note that this project is purely FANMADE and t

- Marking a solid logo and/or copyright across your image, disturbing part of the subject. The watermark may be opaque, partially transparent or even embossed;

I offered to help out with project educate and set up a beading tool compilation for all the beading beginners out there, and it might turn out an interesting read for the intermediate too. I want to explain the tools, the must haves and the should haves.
There where so many different tools, pliers, and cutters, snips and what else. So I decided to make the 101 the one place you could look for, when you need to look up stuff. And to make sure you don't get bored with me babbling away we get right to the point Beading tools cover all those things you need to start with beading and as well those to make beading life a lot easier and comfy. We all do love when it gets comfy don't we?

Back from surgery (again)!Sooo.. I had yet another surgery yesterday.Back from surgery (again)!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wasn't even expecting it! I had a checkup planned yesterday to see how my pacemaker battery was doing, and the doctor told me I needed to have it replaced within the next two months before it dies.
(A pacemaker [via Wiki] is a medical device wired up to the heart that uses electrical impulses to regulate the beating of the heart. The primary purpose of a pacemaker is to maintain an adequate heart rate, either because the heart's natural pacemaker is not fast enough, or [in my case] there is a block in the heart's electrical conduction system.)
The doctor continued on asking me, "have you had anything to eat today?" in which I went.... "???"
I had only had two spoonfuls of yogurt that morning... and then she told me she was doing pacemaker operations that afternoon, and was able to get me in.
So I went in for a checkup and I came out from surgery with a new pacema
Not a Rant, Motivational (plz read)Things have been hard....Not a Rant, Motivational (plz read)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I read it a lot. I read it all over my messages, my messengers, everywhere there are messages of "things have been hard". I did a experiment with myself over the last few months. I didn't talk about the "things" that were hard in my life unless I absolutely had to or to vent a little about short frustrating incidents. I am a blabber mouth for those who don't know me too well. Frank and honest to a fault. If something goes wrong I am typically the first in the room to go"Oh well, shit happens! F this, F that." It has been difficult not to say every day "things have been hard." I did cave and say it once and a while but not as much as it would have pleased myself to say it. Before I start anymore. Read this as positively as possible. I am not making complaints, I have achieved my freedom.
I have been fighting my own "things" since 2007. I suppose really what it is, is that when dealing with difficulty it is just grief. Grief that it just won't stop. I went

And I'll admit, a few of these freak me out by the art and the way they just end like, you see the monster and then BAM next story and you don't know what happened. And I'm the only one in my house righ tnow and my cat enjoys making random noises.
But then other ones just kill me.
Like this one I just read. There's this guy in his house and he hears something outside, and it's night. So he gets out a katana (yes) and opens the door.
And standing right there, staring at him, is this thing. It kinda looks like a decaying zombie, it's flesh is rotted and falling off in some places. One of it's eyes is missing and the other is blank and staring out from its socket. It's mouth hung open like it didn't have the ability to keep it up anymore. Its right hand seems to be gone, replaced by a garden sickle.
The monster stares. And then speaks.
"Ah . . . wrong house."
It walks through the wall and disappears.

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for
