From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television? Who is this literary hero whose portrayal over the past century by such past masters as Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett to today’s vanguard talents Robert Downey, Jr. and Benedict Cumberbatch has inspired such a continuing outpouring of fan appreciation?

Hey dear watchers!
Long time no new version of XPS i see. But don't worry here's a new one!
This is also a kind of needed update for evryone using the previous versions since they will expire tommorrow...
Expire? What does that mean?
- It means that your version of XPS will not start anymore. You will get a error message on startup.
But i liked my version, why upgrade?
- New features have been added and old ones are still working! I tested the version myself and saw nothing that doesn't work anymore.
Wait, you said 'New Features'?
- Yepp! Here they are:
- > No expiration date anymore. This program will work as long as you want it to!
- > Save as 'old Generic_Item' as an option is now available under 'Modify> Save Generic_Item'. Old Generic Item just means that these exported models will also work in XNALara. This works most of the times but not when

What is XNALara/XPS
XNALara is a real time posing and rendering program written by Dusan Pavlicek and had been released for the first time on February, 20, 2009 on tombraiderforums.com.
Dusan, the creator of XNALara, managed to extract Lara Croft's model from the game Tomb Raider Underworld (TRU), converted it for his program, using the Microsoft XNA framework, and shared it, letting people play with it and create art.

Hey dear watchers,
Here's a new XPS Version with a really helpful new feature
Again? I just recently upgraded to XPS 10.9.6!
- Yes that's true but XPS 10.9.6 was a needed update because older versions expired! This version has a nice new feature + the features of version 10.9.6 are of course all still included. If you don't want to update that's okay too! Your current version won't stop working.
Okay, so what is this new feature?
- The new feature is the support of 2 UV layers instead of 1.
- UV mapping is bascially what tells a a model how to display a texture. A full explanation of that is here for the ones that are interested: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UV_mapping
Just like you can do layers in Photoshop, Gimp etc you can also do layers of different UV layouts. Meaning that you can make a new, maybe easier to bake a AO maps - layout without corrupting your mo

Hi! This is the homepage/base for a brand new project - the one hundred fans collaboration. The idea is this - each fan contributes one drawing of a chosen Marvel hero or villain and then an editor puts them all together on a software programme to form an awesome poster showing group love for Marvel. No great artistic ability is need, this is supposed to be fun, but the submissions have to follow a few rules:
1. The figure must be full colour.
2. All forms of media can be used; markers, paints, digital, coloured pencils - whatever !
3. Figure must be against a white background and have no scenery around them.
4. Only one figure may be submitted by each participating fan.
5. The editor (whoever volunteers) may, of course, also submit their own work.

This guide is for pressure sensitive pen tablets. It is going to be much easier to do things with a tablet. Ones by Wacom are good, and you can get a bamboo for under 99$ USD.

It's important to stick with default ones to learn all the settings. You can do so many things with the hard round brush.

Regarding AC models...Hey guys,Regarding AC models... in Personal More Like This
Sorry I'm taking some time to release those models. I started to work on Kidd, but I am taking a short break from it. The fact is that MDA (creator of the extractor tool) is currently trying to figure out the skeleton format from all the games, so I think it's better if I wait for it to be actually possible, or officially declared impossible.
Just to avoid any waste of time, you know.
If at some point the original bones will be extractable together with the characters, I think I'll re-release the previous models with their ingame skeleton and skinning. In that case, I will also port other characters that I never really considered due to the huge amount of work required on my part.
Please be patient.
Have a nice day you all ♥

1. Saving your .psd with all layers hidden makes a smaller file compared to saving it with all layers visible.
2. You can use the Crop Tool to quickly increase the canvas size of an image by holding down Ctrl + Alt whilst dragging the Crop Tool outside the current canvas.
3. If you want to see only one of your layers at a time, hold down Alt whilst clicking the eye icon of the layer. (do it again to show all layers again)
4. Holding down Alt while in a dialog box turns the Cancel button into a Reset button, so you can reset the values back to default.
5. If you want to just quickly check a very heavy .psd file, you can hold down Shift + Alt while clicking the Open button. This way Photoshop will open a flattened version of the file.
6. You can change the gray background that surrounds your image with the Paint Bucket Tool, just hold down Shift and make click on the background.
7. Not a very unknown tip, but if y

Chell died at the end of Portal 2? True or False?Theory:Chell died at the end of Portal 2? True or False? in Personal More Like This
Chell died at the end of Portal 2. The turrets shot her and she died instantly without noticing the turrets shooting her, since it happened so fast.
According to Greek Mythology. Heaven is a cornfield. As you rise to heaven, you are accompanied by your friend and hear calming music.
The turrets break into song. Then you get shoved out of a shed into a field of wheat, accompanied by your only friend, the Companion Cube.
Okay, lemme just start off by saying that it could be true. Although Valve have not confirmed this, but it IS a possibility.
Portal 2 already made a Greek Mythology quote, this being said by the 'Different Turret':
"Prometheus was punished by the Gods for giving the gift of knowledge to man. He was cast into the bowels of the earth and pecked by birds."
Prometheus IS indeed a greek god. (To my knowledge.) So, this theory could be true.
If you watch the end of the game, she is shoved into a field of corn/wheat and there is NOTHING in the distance. Nothing.
