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.

PE: Tolerance Towards Daily DeviationsIf you're like me, one of the first things you do every morning is turn on the computer to check the DDs for the day, if you make this a habit sooner or later you'll see something featured that you won't like at all, making you spill your morning coffee all over the screen.PE: Tolerance Towards Daily Deviations2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Oh the crime! That poor coffee going to waste.
Before you hit the Caps Lock button and begin an essay about the drop of quality of DDs, stop. Take a deep breath, maybe walk around for a bit to cool down, and think about what you're going to do. To begin with, complaining about the DD leaving a comment is extremely disrespectful for the artist because most of the time, they didn't even ask to be featured. Instead, take a moment to consider why was it picked, DDs are chosen for far more than just being visually attractive, as the article Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend explained; we often look f

Can you look in a mirror?And I don't mean look as in checking your hair, fixing your clothes. I mean, look in such a way you see your physical imperfections...as well as all the things that make you beautiful. Not judging, just looking. Seeing that you have acne, but you also have gorgeous eyes. Seeing the little bit of fat but also seeing the curves it gives you. Seeing your round arms but also seeing your strong legs.Can you look in a mirror?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And don't stop there. Look deeper. Look to yourself. Are you brave enough to face and admit to all your faults? Are you humble enough to view all your talents and not blow them out of proportion? Can you, after that examination, feel proud when looking at yourself? Or do you feel defeated? Does that defeat make you want to change, or brings you so low you begin to degenerate?
Some say that people's exteriors should match their interiors. I admit, that would be just and fair- but it would also confuse people. Humans are not totally bad or totally evil. We have a bit of both within us. The

I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

So you want to write something, but you're having writer's block (or artist's block if you also draw part-time)?
If so, here's something that can ease it, and help improve your writing skills! I guarantee that you'll regain your strength and confidence in regards to writing your own novels, if you take some time to read this article and try out the tips I give you!
There is only one problem with rewriting a transcript from your favorite TV show: you don't own 100% of the prose writing. Rewriting transcripts is like fan fiction, because you are taking copyrighted dialogue from the show and turning it into prose with copyrighted characters and settings, just like when you are writing your own story with the same copyrighted characters, settings, or whatever the creator(s) of the show have created themselves. If you want to rewrite a transcript (or script itself) and still get 100% copyright infringement free-writing, I recommend creating your <strong>

The Hylian alphabet and writing in EnglishAs you may know by now, the alphabets which I have altered for use with the Hylian Language Project are a combination of singular and syllable letters. This gets mistaken a lot as being upper and lowercase however so I'd like to make an effort to explain a bit more how the alphabet works, and further, how to properly use it when writing in English.The Hylian alphabet and writing in English2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, if you haven't familiarized yourself with the alphabet, please take a moment to look over the Hylian Language lesson 1, found here:
This can get a little bit confusing when writing in English because of a few extra letters which are dependent on pronunciation. Namely the two different characters for I, the two R's, and the lack of a letter x.
The first i in Hylian looks kind of like a box with a lid. This is the long i, and in English can be used in words like "link" or "sing" as stated in the lesson. The "short I" is used in most English words which contain an I, such as "his", "it" or "with" as stated in the lesson,
Threatening Emails (Mens Rights Activists are sad)I've noticed lately that internet forums like DA, youtube, and reddit are teeming with "Men's Rights Activists" who fight against feminism, say that women can't be gamers, try to downplay the significance of rape, deny the existence of gender wage gaps, and seem to spend every waking moment anonymously trolling and making up statistics about how men are really the one's shut out of politics and big business.Threatening Emails (Mens Rights Activists are sad)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
These people are the inheritors of a tradition of anti-women politics that is easy to trace back to the push in the last century to keep women from getting the right to vote, or more recently to have the right to be in the military.
They're on the wrong side of history, but there are plenty or racist and anti-gay "movements" for which that is equally true.
Feminism is the push for equal political, economic, and social rights for women. You have to willfully twist the meaning of that pretty hard to attack it.
More than that, though, I've discovered that any online
