Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

We have something very exciting coming up end of this week over on our youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCk0bZUbdVfEvpjBgOKi-Stg
We launched our youtube channel a little while ago and plan to do some nice promotional videos that show you our keys in a more 3d way than a normal picture does Right now we only have a few test videos up there but we have some fun ones coming out that I think people will enjoy-- they should be released on Friday if we can get everything done for it.
Anywho, some people have been asking about the free key giveaway. The next giveaway will take place over on our youtube, where we will be giving away 1 key every day for a week (so that's 7 free keys instead of 1!) I will make another journal to explain how you can win (it's going to be pretty much the same thing, just taking place over there)
After that giveaway, our giveaways will return to normal (so no worri
Character Design Contest!CHARACTER DESIGN CONTESTCharacter Design Contest! in Personal More Like This
We are finally launching our Character Design Contest!
I have been wanting to do this for a while now, something that’s a lot of fun where it gives you a chance to use your creativity and art skills to win awesome prizes!
In this contest, you get to design a character based off ANY key or piece of jewelry we have made. It can be based off one in our DA gallery, one in our etsy shop, or one that has already sold from our shop. It does not have to be a key, it can be anything we’ve made.
Anyone can enter, worldwide. Digital and traditional art accepted. It can be a fully painted picture or line art. Other media, such as clay/ sculpting or costume making, are acceptable as well.
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING
Design a character using parts inspired from a necklace in our gallery or shop.

The Devil Is In The DetailI'm taking my time on the Smoother Plasma theme, trying to get the more finer details right everywhere and making sure it looks right for KDE 4.10.The Devil Is In The Detail in Personal More Like This

Of course the details need to be smooth so I've paid attention in keeping the theme looking smooth all round and consistent. Hope you like it so far.
GNOME Shell Themes Packed For GNOME Tweak ToolFinally packed my GNOME Shell themes for the GNOME Tweak Tool yesterday, so now you can easily load the themes into the tool and switch themes. it's a great little tool for tweaking and changing settings in GNOME 3.GNOME Shell Themes Packed For GNOME Tweak Tool in Personal More Like This
It's really easy to make a metadata file for the themes but now myself, I can make themes quicker by using the tool as well, since I can edit the themes locally and have them already, since I use the tool for testing my themes
KDE 4Now KDE 4.10 has been released, the Smoother plasma theme I'm working on will be ready for KDE 4.10. There is nothing major but I'm just making sure it will offer some of the changes in 4.10, specifically new widget handle icons, adapted thin scrollbar design and some other bits that have changed.KDE 4 in Personal More Like This
It's nice to work on themes that don't break in every release, KDE have done a great job in preserving legacy for theme makers throughout the 4 series and extending customisation, UI options for the users. KDE4 isn't a one size fits all design, so never does it force a hard coded desktop design that's half for PC's and half for other devices(i.e like GNOME3, Windows 8, Unity does), it gives you a desktop the way you want it. KDE also made good decisions at the start of KDE4 with Kwin and desktop compositing, you don't need a separate desktop if you don't have 3D acceleration, in fact KDE4 can use Xrender software acceleration, which gives you some of the features of 3D acceleration(like trans

Want me to make you an OC? (open for watchers)Edit: thanks for the overwhelming number of requests! ^^ I have to highlight some things.Want me to make you an OC? (open for watchers) in Personal More Like This
1) this is something I do in my free time. It is not a top priority.
2) DO NOT send me a note about the progress of your request. I will not answer it. And I will likely ignore your request altogether.
Reminder that you asking about a request is very rude and basically insults me cause you think you are somehow entitled to my limited free time just cause you filled out a small form in this journal.
3) I am doing these in random order, and NOT ALL OF THEM.
4) do not request existing characters.
have a nice day ♥
End of edit.
I haven't done this since 2012 or so, but I will offer free custom OCs for fun again ♥
BUT PLEASE. Let me know if the design I make for you is not going to be used.
I would rather keep the design rather than give it away and let it gather dust forever. That's what made me stop last time...it was

6 months later - another video is here!Hello there dear retouchers.6 months later - another video is here! in Personal More Like This
Young, old, beginners, experts, masters and that can go on an on.
So yea, what I mean is that this video is for everyone - those who want to learn and those who allready know their field of work.
I think this second video is so much better than my first one, for several reasons:
- I learned alot since the last retouch video I did back then.
-I learned how not to let the recording interrupt my work or put me under pressure .
- In the parts where you need to pay attention and understand what im doing, Ive put little flying explainations along the video, and decreased the speed of the video to normal when its needed (at the beginning).
- The result actually cam out way better ^^.
The video is of this retouch, for those who wonder: http://nienna1990.deviantart.com/art/New-Version-Retouch-127123012
