Favorite Chaos God!I guess after re-reading some Warhammer books and playing some games again I'm finally in my Warhammer State. YEAH! Now I'm jacked up steroid abusing space marines wielding heavy ass armor and weaponry that I'm... pretty sure realistically would be way too heavy for anyone to wear... and in a world where anyone either looks super pissed or super dreadful. Yes people, it's everyone's favorite Ultimate Ultra Masculine Power bomb of a series.Favorite Chaos God!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And by far, what Warhammer has that a lot of series's seriously lack is... A Great Lore! And some of the coolest Gods in all of fictional history and gaming. So tell me guys. Out of the 4... (No 5 I guess if you count the renegade one) which one is your favorite of the main Chaos Gods.
(Warning: All These Gods Are Super Fucking Metal! So Beware If You Can't Handle The Heat!)
Since I hope most people have info on who or what they are. I'll skip trying to explain it all, but if you forgot a little, I'll just give
Starving ArtistThe Starving ArtistStarving Artist11 months ago in Personal More Like This
This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc

Nails like claws buried deep into his cheek as she breathed softly, surely bloody lips drawn into that scornful smile he both loved and detested.Sick3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And then she was gone, back into the sweet torments of his mind. And then, like venom, she left him on the floor, dead and strangely calm.
I had to get this out of my head.

Skyrim... Day 9, 10, and Rage QuitDay 9Skyrim... Day 9, 10, and Rage Quit1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I think I might've severely kneecapped the main story, but I'm not sure. See, I was tackling the cloak and dagger Foresworn conspiracy in Markarth. I found all the evidence I needed to find, went to talk to my inside man, only to be set up for his murder. I was jailed and allowed to speak to the Foresworn king but... um... I kinda... killed him?
After killing him I made my way through the underground tunnel, fought some dwarven machines and spiders, and as soon as I escaped I was rewarded by the Silver-Blood, given a full pardon, and all my items returned. So I'm kinda torn here... On the one hand, it was pretty clear that the Foresworn were pretty much enslaved and their land stolen and that the Silver-Bloods were to blame. But on the other hand, all the attacks were killing innocent people, and their bandits had been kidnapping and killing a lot of the people I've been rescuing in quests.
I don't really like EITHER group. The Foresworn are like terrorists, an

TRON: Uprising on Netflix!edit 5/19: Quick reminder that all episodes of TRON: Uprising are now available to view in HD on Netflix! c: Enjoy!TRON: Uprising on Netflix!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you might remember, a few months ago we recieved the news that TRON: Uprising was discontinued. The fandom exploded with tweets, blogs, tumblr posts, and petitions in protest - much of which the DA community was involved with as well! The petitions for Uprising (and Motorcity) in total added up to somewhere around 10,000 signatures. While these didn't seem to be enough for Uprising's producers, suddenly we're closer to bringing back Uprising than we ever were before.
A new site called smgo.tv (Show Must Go On) is a newly-launched project interested in backing cancelled shows and bringing them back to the table. The site recieved enough emails from Uprising fans to add it to its small list of shows that may have a chance to come back. BUT, they need fans to help prove it's a viable choice to revive Uprising. This process has three stages (y

Skyrim Quest LagI don’t think I’m gonna be able to keep playing Skyrim at the moment. Not because I don’t want to, but because I’m running into severe quest lag that is hampering my gameplay.Skyrim Quest Lag1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What happens is that quests don’t update properly. I’ll reach a spot I’m suppose to be in, and the next part won’t start, usually leaving me stuck there. Dragon souls take about 2-3 in-game days to collect, so I’ll be roaming the world all alone and suddenly get “zapped” with a soul from a dragon I killed days earlier. Talking to shop keepers doesn’t work. Like I’ll press the button to sell, but no menu pops up. I’ll leave the shop and roam around later and suddenly their menu pops up at the most random times. Also, dragon words won’t automatically unlock either, forcing me to stand infront of them for days before they finally “take effect” and unlock other parts of the game.
It’s severely handicapped my ab

McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!Today is an incredibly exciting day!!!McCall's Patterns + Yaya Han = Cosplay patterns!1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I feel incredibly lucky that on my birthday, I can finally reveal a long-awaited dream come true with all of you.
McCall's Patterns reached out to me last year to see if I would like to design some patterns for them. (Still reeling over this sentence, btw.) I had a meeting and lovely tour of their offices, and then got to work. My ideas were overflowing, but I knew exactly which patterns I wanted to design first...
We're proud to present "Yaya Han's Ultimate Bodysuit Pattern" as the first finished collaboration between McCall's Patterns and me.
It's a pattern we are sorely missing in the cosplay world - I know from having to alter and draft my own bodysuit patterns for many years. This patterns will make it easy for cosplayers (and everyone else) to tailor a bodysuit that will fit them like a glove, and use it as a base for thousands of costume ide

PE: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)
How to interview a politician.A tiny snippet from Jeremy Paxman's interview with Silvio Berlusconi.How to interview a politician.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

WARNING - Please readIf you take commissions or make adopts please do not let the users Pixlett or ToxicMutagen buy from you. They will pay after a few days, BUT they will issue a credit card chargeback on the purchase. (They "share" a Paypal name/email, so I am suspicious that it is just the same person who moved accounts)WARNING - Please read9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm now in the negatives in Paypal due to the chargebacks, and sadly Paypal does NOT cover digital goods (including art) so I won't be getting this money back.
They are doing this to other users/my dA friends as well.
Here's just 3 of the chargebacks they sent me to show as proof. (They have spent thousands on my art, their paypal email is firstname.lastname@example.org)
As you can see, I tried to provide evidence for one of them (still have many to go through)

Eu não sou a melhor pessoa para passar dicas à alguém. Na verdade, eu nem me considero suficientemente capaz de dar algum ensinamento. Mas eu sempre fui muito curiosa e interessada com o mundo da pintura digital, ficando horas e horas e horas assistindo vídeos de 2 horas de duração no Youtube, livestreams intermináveis, a fim de aprender. Apesar da necessidade de se ter uma paciência (de ouro), foi o que mais me ajudou a aprender e a desenvolver os meus conhecimentos. Criando esse hábito, acabei conhecendo e desenvolvendo as técnicas que apresento hoje nos meus trabalhos. Provavelmente como muitos de vocês que agora me leem, cheguei a pedir a ajuda de muuitos artistas que eu admirava, e alguns até me ajudaram como podiam, mas a maioria simplesmente não se importa com o quanto
