New Godzilla trailer up!Go here for the highest quality version to be found online!New Godzilla trailer up!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So here's what we know:
- Action will take place in Japan, Hawaii, Las Vegas (that's the Mini Liberty, not the NYC original), San Francisco...and SOMEWHERE in the Pacific Northwest?
- Godzilla has been around since 1954...and the US military spent several decades just trying to KILL HIM.
- The MUTO creatures are in the trailer, as the flying one can be seen along with its long hook-like arm.
- There's SOME sort of egg-sack-thing on one of the nukes...could they be MUTO eggs?
- Cranston's character was involved in a nuclear accident in Japan 15 years prior to the film, and smells a conspiracy.
- Watanabe's character discovers some sort of massive fossil underground...
And there you have it
- Firstly, everybody needs to get in the mood by listening to this:
Keep your eyes on that page. Godzilla is coming...TOMORROW.

Color composition!A Couple of months past, the last book of James Gurney came to my hands. It was about color and light and it has the greatest review about the subject I've ever found on a book for now.Color composition!4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Because of that great discovery, I've decided to compliment it with my own experience and that is why I started doint light tutorials:

Color composition tutorial --> http://vandervals.deviantart.com/art/Tutorial-painting-a-dragon-201830846?q=gallery%3Avandervals&qo=1
But I think that I did something wrong, I tryed to explain color composition just by working in 1 picture, and so that you understand that it is necesary that you see more than one.
That is why I decided to make this picture selection and show you some pictures that I think represent the color composition very well. Here they are ordered by issues:

- Firstly, the BIG news! Kraken Releasing (yes, that's what they're called) is putting out not one, not two, but THREE Godzilla flicks on Blu-Ray this year!
EBIRAH: HORROR OF THE DEEP
GODZILLA VS. HEDORAH
GODZILLA VS. GIGAN
Thusfar, all that's confirmed are dual language tracks, but special features and/or whether or not any of the films will have their respective American-produced dubs (superior in quality to the "international" dubs) have yet to be mentioned. Given that it's a relatively small set from a new company under the Section 23 label, we can at least hope for more than the drag-and-drop releases from Sony a few years back.
- Secondly, a hardcover graphic novel adaptation of GODZILLA (2014) is being released by DC (though sources say it might be Legendary Comics) - either way, Art Adams, Eric Battle, an
GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go OnGODZILLA (2014) has hit theaters, and for months (years for most Godzilla fans), potential audiences have been anticipating a return to form for the Lizard King - a film that will revisit the themes of the 1954 original and deliver a brooding, apocalyptic story of destruction and doom.GODZILLA (2014) review - The Showa Must Go On1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, what we got could best be described as a sequel to THE TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA (1975).
Trust me, I wouldn't begin a review with a hyperbolic, attention-grabbing statement like that without explaining it. For the moment, let us turn back the clock and toss out a quick recap of the film's plot. Obviously, this review will contain a metric crapload of SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS, but you'll complain anyway, so let's get on with this.
After a mysterious event in 1954 regarding the Castle Bravo nuclear test and an unknown giant organism, the story jumps to 1999, where two scientists, Dr. Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) and Dr. Graham (Sally Hawkins) are investigating a massive underground tomb in the
Godzilla Encounter and Pacific Rim!Man, I got back from G-Fest not but 24 hours ago...and there's so much to talk about!Godzilla Encounter and Pacific Rim!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Firstly, I went and saw me some PACIFIC RIM with the G-Fest crew. MAN what an amazing time at the theater - it was like watching a wrestling match. The theater rocked with elated cheers as steel fist smashed against reptilian flesh and bone.
As to the plot...I reached a strange revelation while at my table during the convention proper. If PACIFIC RIM, flaws and all, were an animated feature...would anyone have ANY complains about it? Personally I prefer the live-action-cartoon approach - it makes the universe feel all the more rich as a sumptuous visual feast.
That being said, the film isn't performing the way it should. It may pull a HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and stick around for a time, earning its money over a period of time, but it's not looking great at the moment. Go see it! And a second and third time! There's a lot riding on PacRim's success so go support it!

In the spirit of celebration, I'd really like to make something to thank everyone. If you have suggestions, please respond below! I can't guarantee I'd be able to make anything too massively complex, but thoughts and well-wishes are appreciated!

50 Years of Guarding the Universe
An American Doujinshi by Matt Frank and Josh Bugosh
In the year 1965, from the depths of an arctic glacier, awoken by an accidental atomic explosion, came crawling the Friend of all Children, the Guardian of the Universe, the Terrible Terrapin of Tokyo, GAMERA. Sweeping the Japanese box office, and quickly becoming an pop culture icon in his own right, Gamera captured the hearts of kaiju fans the world over, both young and old. After 12 feature films, Gamera’s 50th anniversary is upon us in the year 2015…and any rumors of a celebratory film were quickly silenced. As the months march on, it seems less and less likely that the mighty reptile will recieve his due, even as the kaiju genre enjoys a resurgeance in popularity.
Ergo, kaiju artist Matt Frank, best known for his work on IDW Publishing’s various Godzilla comic series, has begun work on a standalone story, The Last Hope. Intended to be produced as a one-shot, self-p
GODZILLAJust saw the new Godzilla movie.GODZILLA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As a huge fan of the original Japanese Godzilla movies, I was not dissapointed, thoroughly enjoyed it and my only complaint was having to watch it in 3D...
Also, Godzilla is pretty fat but i don't mind that so much.
Never been a fan of watching movies in 3D anyway - it costs more, glasses sit on my eyelids, eyes hurt after a while and movie theatres tend to be warm so i sweat a bit where the glasses contact my eyelids and have to wipe occasionally, and I dont like the movies to tell my eyes what to focus on, I actually like looking for little details/cameos/easter eggs. Plus I so rarely go to the cinema that my last pair of 3D glasses gathered the thickest layer of dust it possibly could and I had to buy another pair.

But really. DeviantArt must have some of the most militant, irate, nasty people that this side of the internet has to offer. You never know what will set people off.
Just recently, I kindly suggested to a fellow deviant that they needed to include a mature tag on their work. I've done this before a few times in the past, and none of the instances have been too pretty. Essentially what happens is you get cussed out by the artist. Oh gee, thanks. It's things like these that just goes to show that behind a computer screen, people are absolute dicks; and this is in part one of those reasons why I'm not so keen with people in general. Which brings me to another point: try getting into an argument with a friend; they'll start talking about how they really think of you. The argument will never go, "I think you're being very inconsiderate right now!", it'll go something like, "well have good luck getting a job with that useless degree you're wasting thousands of dol
To those who can't take criticismCriticism is a pretty vast word with a simple meaningTo those who can't take criticism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many take it as "hating","trolling","being jealous" and much more idiotic things.
You don't have to be better at something to be able to criticize it. Infact, that would ruin the entire point of criticism.
It's like you go out to get a pizza because you don't know how to cook, and the pizza tastes like shit. Do you have to do better than the pizza to make it taste bad? No! It tastes like shit either way.
Some people may like the pizza, and that's good for them. Respect it.
Same goes for music, you don't have to be a #1 rated musician to not like a song. It's human to like/dislike things. Claiming people to be "jealous" just shows that you cannot comprehend simple criticism. Some people may put it harsher than others (I for one am fairly straight forward) but it's nothing to be upset over.
Someone may actually like your shitty inika moc color rape.

ANOTHER RANT THINGSeeing how apparently bronies are very... dogmatic (for the lack of a better word) with their show, seems they have made something that makes me want to facepalm again. The bronies are very fond of mixing a show about a bunch of pastel-coloured horses and something more adult. (I.E. The Dresden Files, which they actually did.) Harry Dresden aside, today, we're going to talk about the thing known as "Fallout: Equestria."ANOTHER RANT THING2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes. They've mixed a game about the aftermath of a nuclear war and pastel-coloured horses. Yeah. It even has its own wiki and website. Really. But to summarize the story, from I read.
The main character lives in a Stable (Vault) which her celebrity crush ran away and she goes out to chase her and 'rescue' her. The main character much later in, the main character meets a sniper who nearly blows her head off and they got on random misadventures, including that the main character gets addicted to 'Mint-als' (Mentats), and finally find her celebrity crush.

You have helped me in so many ways. I wish you would be able to see this. If people spread it around maybe you will but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the impact you have had on my life. There was a time I was very depressed and didn't think well of myself. I found your videos about a year and a half ago now and I have been hooked since then. I tried to watch all the videos from before that, which I still haven't completed, and I fell in love with the connection you had with your fans. You never changed to get a bigger fan base and you didn't let the fame go to your head. I started to fall for you. Then as time went on, I was in a relationship that I got out of recently with someone who meant well but didn't have time to do anything with me, would rather play games with his friends and push me to the side

SciFi Japan recently posted an article that details yet ANOTHER failed attempt to do an American-made Godzilla movie, entitled "Godzilla Reborn".
And even more interesting, it would have been a direct sequel to "Godzilla 2000", written by the same man behind that film's American adaptation, Michael Schlesinger.

Anyway, congratulations to the VT crew. Now for a little story. First video I ever watched from them was the Doctor Who TARDIS mod (the one separate from A Skyrim Tale) when I happened to be watching a bunch of Doctor Who stuff that day. If I hadn't clicked on that one video, I probably never would have heard of them again, if at all, for a long time. I subscribed one year ago on July 17th, the day the Vacation Roleplay Map in Gmod came out.
Now my most successful series, Poet's Journal was recognized by my favorite person in the entire world and I feel so lucky and blessed that that happened. Not only that, Venturian himself told me
