Warm Bodies ...Warm Bodies ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Watch it. Seriously.
I just got back from the cinemas, where I caught Warm Bodies with my bestie from LASALLE. I know what you're thinking, that the movie didn't look that great. Yet another zombie movie amongst the throngs of supernatural the media flings at us, yet another teenage romance to appeal to every young adult with a pulse. And I will be the first to admit that when I first heard the outline of the story - a cute young man who just happens to be undead falls in love with a young girl at first sight - I was skeptical. I assumed it would become a rehash of Twilight, and I just got over the nausea of seeing those posters cluttering all the billboards.
However, after trawling through the trailers and finding them appealing and funny, I decided that the movie was worth a shot. It advertises itself as a quirky, humorous take on zombies, throwing in a mix of teenage romance

I hate that thesis SO much... I feel like total idiot, I somehow can not write it. Why?!
It is my the last attempt to complete it, if I do not finish it properly, I totally lose my chance to get my second Master degree. Which would be pretty embarassing, because not only I already have all the credits I need, I even passed the graduation exams! After so much work, it would be stupid to end without the title just because of inability to write stupid 80 pages.
Also, I wish USA a lucky hand when it comes to voting! It might be interesting, I will definitely watch US elections interesting material for a student of political science. I do not mind to share my opinion - I would vote for Obama. But I do not feel like advocating my opinion, I have no problem with those whose attitude is different
The first few photobooks have been already shipped!
P.S.: still exercising, still riding a bike (two days, then a pause), still eating 5x a day. I have problems with drinkin

Skullgirls updatesHey guys a@,Skullgirls updates3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some updates on Skullgirls. Most of this stuff was mentioned already on Twitter and Facebook already anyway, but I figure I could mention it here as well:
The patch for the game is in the works. It will be full of a lot of major improvements and new features, plus extra color palettes for all of the characters.
Back to School Shirt-
Check out the Skullgirls store for a Back-to-School themed shirt! They're available on the site for a limited time only.
Was a fun excuse to draw Mrs. Victoria. owo
I might have said it before, but I always need to thank all of you who have been incredibly supportive and enthusiastic about the game, even in times when things were awfully quiet. Trust us, Skullgirls is still definitely on our minds, and we are still planning many things. There were a lot of other elements that came up that often slowed down progress. I know that is super vague and abstract, and I apologize for that.
Still, though, it is really

Busy, commission, No Mo' BOGOi haven't gotten a chance to go on my artist alley adventures because i've been busy lately. i finally got some commissions so I'm doing those. also i got a job interview and i don't know if they are interested in hiring me but they might. I'm actually going to talk to them tomorrow to talk about the position and more information on what they are looking for. i think its a design job so I'm crossing my fingers. i really want to finally have my first professional job since graduating. i did have an internship with jet morgan games while i was in school and i am officially a clean up artist for reverge labs. unfortunately they haven't sent me any assignments. i can't wait till that happens though, i'm kind of excited. i really hope that this job interview leads to something because my bills are piling up. why are u so sinister GROWN-UP LIFE, can't u just leave me be.Busy, commission, No Mo' BOGO3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Im a 3d Character Artist, why do i need 2D skills?I was asked this a couple of times recently from students, thought i would share my thoughts here with you guys n girls.Im a 3d Character Artist, why do i need 2D skills?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My answer consists of 2 things:
1. Because 2d helps to rapidly build a visual library of self-knowledge in your brain, which ultimately through focus and repetition translates into 'artistic instinct'.
2. Because 2d is much faster to iterate with, enabling more rapid development of 'artistic instinct'.
Have you ever noticed when watching a master artist at work, that the subject seems to come alive so quickly, or that meaningful lines, shapes or silhouettes jump out right away, and then think:
'They seem to know exactly what shapes to put where, how to nail the composition so quickly, how to draw everything perfectly, without even thinking about it!!'
This is artistic instinct.
What you are watching is an artist call upon their whole lives worth of visual library development and self-knowledge, expressed using their 'artistic instinct' in the form of the subject.

Because when you are told to remove a famous google wallpaper you posted as your deviation (which is forbidden by dA), there is nothing better than to go to an account of a person who told you to remove it. And yeah, the best thing you can do is to tell THAT person, that you saw HER art posted long time before she posted it. Although it is total lie and bullshit.
What to say?
I am pretty sure I do not need to prove I really took this photo and that I am the only copyright owner. And that this photo simply COULD not be seen before I posted it, because the original was only on my laptop I think people, who are able to write such false accusations, are annoying and pathetic that person obviously has some problems to understand the sense of this site, because comments like ,,you can post everything you want on your site" (means dA account, Note) show that this person absolutely does not care about rules of dA

Supercon is June 29-July 2 (I will not be attending July 2 since I have to be a witness in court...) and I will be slaving away at my table, doing commissions for pretty much 80% off. Fun times right? Last year I was so busy my wrist locked up and I had to FORCE myself to pull through. It's MADNESS! MADNESS I TELL YOU!
Despite all this, I miss posting and I miss drawing in my sketchbook nonstop. It's SO CLOSE to being full and I'm just itching to get a new one.
Anyways, don't want to ramble - just wanted to give my watchers and commissioners a little shout as to where I am currently.

If you want power, you need to turn the outlets on, and to do that you gotta push a switch down.
TV has far fewer commercial breaks.
English police are super nice (watched the British version of "COPS" and was amazed at how polite everyone was, even the criminals).
The second floor is called the first.
French Fries are called Chips.
Chips are called Crisps.
American-centric music doesn't stay here (Heard "Sweet Home Alabama" quite a number of times over there).
You are not expected to tip people (this was very hard for me to accept and I always felt guilty not tipping our waiters).
You are not expected to clean up your messes in food courts or.. anywhere actually (Janitors come by and clean up for you. Has something to do with security and getting rid of bomb threats).
Elevators are called Lifts.
Air conditioning seems scarce.
Always carry a big bottl

"E" is still not working properly :/
But I have to say that the last art-thief who told ME whole made up story about how she took a photo, which in fact belongs to me, totally cracked me up it was just soooo funny that I even could not report her she gave me such a good laugh, that I am almost GRATEFUL to her! I wish all art-thieves here on dA would be so stupid and funny hahaha!
Also, one thing really pleased me - I had my public transport ticket on the table. As I always pay for three months, I have to have an ID card with a photo of me. This small ID photo was taken in spring 2011. Next to this card, I had a little pack of another "ID" photos I got for my driving licence. Those photos were taken some week ago, so spring 2012.
I just took 2011 ID photo and compared it with 2012 ID photo.
People, I just gazed at a result!!!
There is SUCH a difference...
In 2011, with all that fat, I looked so much older, my face was just pig-pink and round ball wi

There is a new kiriban - catch my 822 222 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note, if you want to win a feature (just no feature for porn or animal cruelty, thanks for understanding) good luck - kiriban is close now!
And guess what: a miracle happened!
DA finally removed that photo which was stolen from me AND it even banned the thief. Incredible! Well, thanks, dA, for removing it, it is nice to see this problem fixed
But it still makes me a bit upset - reports sent by original authors have high priority for dA. And it still took a month to remove the stolen work. I think it really makes almost no sense to report art-thieves, who post google photos, as nobody cares about it here quite sad...

Alright...*picks self back up*...wow. First of all, Thank you. To all the fans, gamers, comic book readers, tv show watchers; thank you for trying our Walking Dead game. The feedback, the reviews, have blown all of us away here at Telltale. I can't tell you how many "walkthroughs" I've watched on YouTube because I love hearing everyone's reaction to our game and seeing how everyone plays it differently. We are already hard at work on the next episodes, but this kind of stuff lights a fire under us and pastes a permanent smile on everyone's face. Please, keep that feedback coming as it only helps us to better the future episodes!
Thanks again everyone and keep on playing!
