Custom Breaking Bad FiguresCustom Breaking Bad Figures3 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!
60 seconds interview with...Jo SchwabPhotographer Jo Schwab JoSchwab from Berlin has been on dA for the past three years. He is a very accomplished portrait photographer and his gallery shows a variety of portraits of women, in the "nude portrait" genre. He has received two DDs for "Olga" and for "Anesja" the latter a particularly stunning colour portrait of a black model. Jo has many fans and countless imitators but no one quite manages to match his uncanny ability to capture the undefinable.60 seconds interview with...Jo Schwab4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Some of his best work is to be seen only on his website http://www.joschwab.com/ where he shows greater versatility than in the work posted in his dA gallery.
I have asked Jo a few questions. This is our first interview in a long time. Our "60 seconds interview with.." are meant to be short and to the point.
Send me a note if you would like to be interviewed or have suggestions for an interview.

GTK Theme PreferencesFound some interesting news on webupd8 again.GTK Theme Preferences2 years ago in Personal More Like This
satya164, the man behind the Greybird GTK3 theme, wrote a program that allows users to change colors of GTK2 and GTK3 themes using a graphic user interface. Great news for everyone who does not like to dig around in textfiles.
Together with the ACYL Icon Theme by pobtott this might make some great theming very easy.
Looking forward to try it.
Clearlooks portDigging around in my bookmarks, I just found this port of the default Gnome 2 theme. Apart from gtk 3.0, 3.2 or 3.4 - whichever you might need - it also includes a theme for Xfwm.Clearlooks port2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Users of Arch will find it in the AUR, on Debian unstable and Ubuntu 12.10 the package clearlooks-phenix-theme can be installed. Also, a manual download can be found on the website.
I used this theme to copy the GNOME 2 desktop using Xfce.
I just found it here on dA: Clearlooks Phenix
Example Random Tileset is upSo a few people asked me "can you put up an example of a random tile set"?Example Random Tileset is up3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sure. It really looks like a lot of work, but really, it is not. But remember, what you put in to it is what you get out of it.

Really, it is very simple. I would love to have some "extra" random tile sets available for download if people make them
