If you win, you will receive a custom corset and bracers or vest and tie/bow-tie made to fit your body and designed by me. If you need examples of what I make, check below! All but a few pieces of clothing below were designed by me.

Two new maps, Hydra and Condor.
Five new characters, the batarian Soldier and Sentinel, geth Infiltraitor and Engineer, krogan Battlemaster Vanguard, and the asari Justicar Adept.
New weapons: the heavy-hitting Striker assault rifle, geth Plasma SMG, and the Kishock Harpoon Gun
New abilities: the geth Engineer will be able to send out a shockwave like the asari can, and then go into a lockdown like Armor Lock in Halo: Reach. The geth Infiltrator will have, I believe, Marksman, only with a tactical overlay. The batarian Sentinel has a paralysis web that he can shoot to ensnare enemies. The asari Justicar can project a protective bubble to shield their allies.
Available on April 10th for the ultra-competitive price of free.
While download is free, you will still have to unlock the weapons and characters with the existing unlock system.
Maybe they'll release a paid version of this later

If you've been following my work you may know I've drawn, and am in the process of drawing, all generations of Pokemon. You may also know that from the second generation on, I've been drawing them quite inebriated :icondrunkplz: This leads them to be crude, messy, and instead of acting as standalone pokemon comics they become insights into the mind of a drunk artist.
That brings us to the new project I would like to invite all artists to join, as long as they are above the legal drinking age of their country of residence: DRUNK POKEMONS :icondrinkplz: :iconohhellyeahplz:
1. You get drunk
2. You draw/paint/sculpt a new, non-existing Pokemon (or a "Fakemon" for short)
3. Another (drunk) person takes your Fakemon and gives it a name and type (other details optional)
4. Another (drunk) person takes this Fakemon and draws its evolution, including it's name and type

We got a great response to Premium Membership Day last week and even entered some new members into our sacred society! Keep your hazing to a minimum, please.
For this week, we're having a limerick creation contest! This poetic device challenges you to create a story using five lines only, and rhyming in the style of AABBA. So, the first, second, and fifth lines rhyme, while the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other. As Wikipedia describes, a limerick can be light-hearted and silly. So, have fun with it!
Your theme is: Sports! :iconbasketballlaplz:
For example, here's one I made:
Lil' Billy was so, so small
He stood only 3 feet tall
But with a swing and a hit
The bat he did split
Only to gain a foul ball.

5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)There are lots of tips, chestnuts, and other pieces of advice that I've heard over the years--tidbits of wisdom passed on from one generation to the next, from professional to professor to prospective student. Some of them are drawing tips, some of them are tricks to dealing with publishers, and some are general guidelines on how to survive in comics. Most of them are useful and true and will stand the test of time, but a few of them have become hackneyed platitudes and have gone unquestioned for too long. Here are 5 that I'm questioning...5 Comic Book Truths (that I don't think are true)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. READERS WILL ONLY LOOK AT A PANEL FOR 5 SECONDS, SO DON'T SWEAT IT TOO MUCH.
I understand the intention of this bit of wisdom, and I mostly agree with it: drawing great interiors is important, but at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down with small details that most readers won't even notice.
But here's my concern with this: if you treat every panel like it's disposable, then you're less likely to make an impact with reader

A Naked New YearFor the record I welcomed 2013 in a proper dress but I did want to address my new fascination with nudity. For years I have been doing shots that have craftily avoided the visual of the "nether regions". Lately I have abandoned that rule and for good reason. It is my opinion that the female body is the most beautiful and incredible thing ever created. I dont see any shame in it and I believe in smashing down the old stereotypes that sex and sexuality is a dirty thing. I have been researching alot on what it is that defines the border between porn and art and I think it is about time that we ladies reclaimed our naughty bits from the dirtbags and the pornogrpahers who have taken sole, visual possession of them. I believe that nudity, full female nudity can be portrayed with elegance and artistry. I also believe that sexuality can be portrayed with absolute and utmost dignity and elegance. I realize that many people think that photos and visuals depicting things such as masturbation andA Naked New Year3 years ago in Personal More Like This

With 13,000 new deviants joining deviantART each day, we want to ensure everyone's user experience is seamless. A common question from new and old deviants alike is: "What do username symbols mean?" Over the years, as we’ve surveyed deviants, we’ve found that very few understand symbols.

I seriously cannot begin to thank you all for your selfless donations for the prize in last month's contest. We shot well past our goal, nearly doubling the limit, and we really have quite the awesome prize package for the participants from April. Basically, we have enough to go around, so everybody who made the runners up listing is guaranteed some swanky dA swag of sorts!
Seeing this group come together like this and so generously put forth the thought and love to other aspiring artists, supporting them, bolstering them to achieve greater heights in artistic caliber, really makes the color-me-club's membership so unique above the rest. Even when we meet the goal, that doesn't stop you guys from donating, because you really, really, really, want to pitch in regardless of whether we've already crossed the finish line or not.

Kick Sexism Out Of GamingIf you do just one thing today, read this article - http://www.vg247.com/2012/04/12/enough-we-must-all-try-to-kick-sexism-out-of-gaming/Kick Sexism Out Of Gaming4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I won't post the whole thing here, but the issue can be summed up with this quote from the above article: "The truth is that games are sexist in their depiction of women to a depressing degree. I raised the point on a press trip dinner last year: how many female characters can you think of that aren't obviously designed to be sexually attractive to men? Apart from Shepard, no one around the table could suggest a single one."
I've made my thoughts on this issue very clear before, and taken some flak along the way for it - but it has got to stop. Is there anything wrong with wanting to make characters look attractive? Of course not. But the ridiculous degree to which female characters are sexualised is not going away - and if anything - getting worse. Take Ashley Williams for example - in ME1 she was a tough as nails soldier - the o

Gaming industry news source Gamasutra.com reports: "After less than a year on the market, The Old Republic is going free to play. In November, Electronic Arts plans to add a new free-to-play option on top of the existing subscription service, allowing users to play any character class up until level 50, albeit with a few restrictions on accessing new content and other game features."
A "free to play" business model is a method of publishing games most commonly seen in social (Facebook) and mobile games; but is also an expanding model for MMOs. It's often a switch made when a game starts to see falling subscription numbers. By
