Back in action with a couple of EventsHello everyone, Sorry for the long long Hiatus, had quite a few things to sort out before today. with the new year and all the late work I had to finish, I'm still behind with some commissions but hopefully with my new daily schedule set up, i will catch up on those as well, so if you are on such a list and been waiting for a long while, please give me just a bit more time, i will catch up on these late work. @__@Back in action with a couple of Events2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I started a daily monster sketch, so hopefully this will help make up for my lack of action for the past months. please feel free to join in on this excercise as well, i care less about the quality about these works, the important thing for me is keep doing one each day, hopefully to do this for a whole year. =] I think it will be a big dedication and accomplishment. =]
another Event i want to start is a contest of sorts, which would have two parts. the first part would be asking you to submit your original character for a random selection, this can be an image or description

Remember RememberPeople across the pond often explain Britain's "Bonfire Night"/"Guy Fawkes Night" as the UK's version of their July 4th celebration.Remember Remember1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Penchant for detonating sparking, explody things aside, they're not at all similar.
One is about a nation celebrating its independence (or the defeat of alien invaders, depending how strong your grip is on reality) the other is basically a nation trolling terrorists, rubbing their faces in failure.
That the thwarting of the November 5th gunpowder plot is remembered is arguably one of the two reasons why the Brits are universally unafraid of terrorism (the second being that Fair Blighty has faced down the largest war machines the world has ever seen. A random yahoo that wants to blow himself up is an irritant by comparison). You leave the nations of the UK alone and they fight among themselves in a 600mile long drunken brawl. However, if an outside force so much as prods them with a stick in a manner that they find remotely unpleasant, they unify
Learning to read, with Jolly Jack.Well, that was fun.Learning to read, with Jolly Jack.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as not

Crossroads of the world.My Battle Bunnies comic (which I will return to in the new year) takes place in (and under) a major trade centre of the fantasy world where the story is set. I’ve mentioned in the description of a few related images that this expansive city is a mix of Istanbul and Jerusalem, both in terms of aesthetic (particularly that of the Crusader era) and that control over it is desired by multiple factions.Crossroads of the world.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A documentary series has recently started on the BBC that details the history of the city known today as Istanbul. The first couple of episodes of Byzantium: A Tale of Three Cities are currently available on the BBC’s iPlayer*, and are well worth a watch if you’re as interested in history as I am. It’ll also give you a better idea of why I chose Istanbul as a template for Azkendaren.

Filed under 'M'....for 'Misplaced'As a kid, I always idolised those crazy characters in movies that worked in a chaotic environment, filled with papers and books. You know the ones?

Architectural PhotographyGalleries monthArchitectural Photography6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The Architecture Photography gallery which can be found here on DeviantART is full of beautiful structures, man-made creations and details. There are often crossovers between some of the Architecture works found here and some located within the Abstract and Surreal galleries and again this demonstrates how Art can fit into so many categories at any one time. Here we hope to highlight the true descriptions of the Gallery and it's sub-categories. As always if you have any questions, ask away in the comments.
Bridges and Suspended Structures
Deviations that belong in this gallery are photographs where the focus is a bridge or a built architectural structure. It can be a close up of part of a bridge, or a complete shot encompassing the whole creation. Often, photographs found within this gallery could also cross over into galleries such as Animals Plants and Nature -
Yeah, this'll end well.....Let me try to wrap my head around this: certain parties in the U.S government don't like the idea of assisting the poor, of the county they serve, with health care expense, because of the cost.Yeah, this'll end well.....1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Their "solution" to this is to shut down the government (something which isn't possible in any other nation on the planet), which will cost more, decrease public spending, lower the demand for imports, damage global economy and generally tarnish the U.S's international reputation even further?
The rich making others suffer in an effort to get their own way.
I believe that's called "tyranny".
Anime: home of the arsehole.I can list a whole range of eastern-born cartoons that I think look absolutely gorgeous, and whose visual style I wish very much that I could emulate.Anime: home of the arsehole.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Only a handful of those, however, can I refer to as being "good". Or even "tolerable".
Having watched them for most of my life, going back to things like Mysterious Cities of Gold and the original Astro Boy, I can say with a certain degree of authority that: Japanese storytelling is a bit wank. Daring and dynamic visuals, sure. Crap narrative.
And it can't ALL be blamed on "bad translation".
There's a wide range of gripes to be had, but chief among them these days is that the major characters, those who one would assume you're to root for, across however many episodes the series consists of, are generally complete and utter dicks.
I'm currently wading through Gurren Lagann, a series which people have raved about for a while but which I'd not had the chance to watch until now (spoiler approaching, should you be in the same boat).

this is a contest for a character for the "Anima: Gate of Memories" video game.
I will be very clear, there will be NO PAYMENT for any winners here. You enter if you want to do this, and we are in no way trying to scam anyone of doing free work.
What the winner will get out of this contest:
1. the winner's character will be 3D modeled, and put into the game as a character inside the game and story. We will work to incorporate this character into the story, without him or her just standing around for nothing.
2. the winner's full name will be in the credits.
3. This character will be copyrighted primarily to this game, you are allowed to use the artwork for your portfolio, but may be a bit complicated if you want to sell him/her off to a new client. Details of copyright can be discussed with the winner.
What we are looking for:

Wacom Pen Nib a bit short? Might not be the nib...I've noticed recently that on heavily-used Wacom pens, especially those owned by a complete klutz such as myself, have a tendency to eventually get really short nibs. So short that it can only detect pressure when held completely perpendicular to the screen. At first you think, "Oh, wow I need to change the nib, that is seriously worn down, geez!" And when you change it out for a fresh one, it's JUST as short as before....Wacom Pen Nib a bit short? Might not be the nib...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So what's wrong? To find out, give your pen a back-and-forth shake. Does it sound like the innards of the pen are shifting, rattling back and forth? Press on the eraser tip. Does the tip's length suddenly come back? If so, this means that the body of your pen has begun to come apart, thus making the shaft longer and loosening up the inside. (The following is a description of an Intuos4 pen. But others should be similar.)
To fix this, it's an easy matter of removing the duo-switch, (just get a fingernail underneath it and pry it, don't worry, it's strong,) then the co

The prologue of my original manga is complete and up online, [HERE]
MILK★ is about idol groups in the year 2275, and the culture and conspiracies that surround them. It's a very sci-fi setting, with cute girls and dystopian concepts (which I lllllllove ahhahaha) ~~ I love cute happy things that make me smile.. but I also love UNDER-LYING SECRET FUCKING WEIRD CONCEPTS *____* (what have I become)
Uhm, unfortunately, for the bad news.. OTL|||
MILK isn't something that I can keep doing as a manga format. :c (At least, not for now)
I did this prologue mainly as a personal goal to see how I could do and what I could do with it. I loved making it, but it is just too much work for not enough reward u___u Maybe when I have a stable income it's something I could tackle. Actually, I would love that. >o<' But until fu

Great Portfolio is greater than College DiplomaGreat Portfolio is greater than College Degree.Great Portfolio is greater than College Diploma8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Of Course, I’m not exposed to every school in the world but from my general knowledge, personal experience and some basic logic: School is way too expensive to attend, especially if it takes you years later to get a decent job after graduation.
Here are three reasons why I’m not happy with most, not all, colleges in america. Especially for artists.
IT COSTS WAY TOO MUCH MONEY! I hear now that some art schools are charging $30,000 a year, for three years. That’s $90,000 of debt. Most professionals in my field of concept art don’t make that in a yearly salary. It’s more expensive than some medical schools and that’s becoming a doctor of some sort. So why is it so expensive? Doesn't matter, it just is.
Think about it this way. You are about to invest almost a tenth of a million dollars for the promise of being a capable person in the industry. But by the end, all you get is a piece of paper and a
