New Orleans, the Comeback Kid
Vibrant, raucous and, more than any other metropolis in America—truly alive! New Orleans is the one city in America that nobody believed would not stage a comeback after Katrina tried her best to kill its Big Noise. New Orleans is protected by Jesus or hoodoo or both—it’s all one glorious mixed–up gumbo goulash of cultures believing in live and let live.
Most cities in America are mostly alike in most everything. New Orleans is the exception. It is unique. It has had a separate evolution and it’s the most arts–based cultural treasure in our nation. The city i

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?”

There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t

Into the Realm
“Evening songs of burning wood and mead and laughter, of blood and hunts and fellowship: our halls echo with memories old and new. A day through forest and field, chasing the smell of spring, a moment above the morning mist to steal a glimpse of seas twinkling on the horizon; an eternity before our gates, in wonderment at the carved quests of heroes, coming alive at a fingertip’s request. Witness a lifetime into the realm… it is quite the adventure.”

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?

DA racism part IISo, I've been having fun calling out more DA nazi-fanboys and one of them accuses me - I shit you not - of lacking "honor" for reporting him. Being a coward, like they all always are, he blocked me in a huff after leaving a final response, but I've prepared a reply nonetheless: http://bogleech.tumblr.com/post/36174211916/so-the-da-nazi-guy-finally-blocked-me-but-onlyDA racism part II in Personal More Like This
This, by the way, is the forum he and some of his pals a proud member of: http://vnnforum.com/
I don't think people realize how serious a problem these types are. They're tolerated all over DA under the notion that what they choose to believe and express deserves the same freedom as what everyone else believes and expresses, which is like saying that a murderer or a rapist deserve to be "tolerated" for their own cruel and harmful choices.
These people whine that they're being oppressed, that they're being met with intolerance, that their rights are being infringed when they're silenced, as if it somehow doesn't matter that
Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 6 in Personal More Like This
A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:

The main brush toolbar itself has a click-and-drag function, allowing you to store all your often-used brushes in each of the "lanes". You then can click the button on the upper-right and then a fu

160 years before the events of Pokémon as we know the today, the regions were caught in the web of ever rising conflict...
Rival nations, Johto and Kanto, have been competing for centuries. At times the tensions have risen to the waging of wars between them. Bad economics, unscrupulous trade, spreading disease, and idea theft has been enough to spark high tensions between these two.
Recently, an unknown Pokémon (Mew) has disabled all the automated weaponry on both sides. (However machines are still usable, such as cars.) Being stranded without weapons, both countries have seen a lull in war. It has been 30 years since the last all-out war, but there is still enough mistrust within living generations to spark the fire. Moreover, the independent actions of occasional guerrilla fighter skirmishes keep tensions high.
In fear of their neighbouring country, Johto sought out a new form of protection: Pokémon.
Up until now, people lived in fear of Pokémon.
Awesomely stupid insultsFound these online since I was bored.Awesomely stupid insults in Personal More Like This
Shock me, say something intelligent.
I don't know what makes you so stupid, but it really works!
How did you get here? Did someone leave your cage open?
Sorry, I can't think of an insult stupid enough for you.
Have you considered suing your brains for non-support?
Calling you stupid would be an insult to stupid people.
You must have a very low opinion of people if you think they're your equals.
Your IQ involves the square root of -1.
You're so stupid, that when you saw someone stealing your TV, you ran after them saying "You forgot the remote".
Were you born an idiot or did you have to work at it?
I would insult you, but you'd only take it as a complement.
Don't like my sarcasm? Well, I don't like your stupidity.
Everyone has a right to be stupid sometimes. But you're abusing your privilege.
You're living proof of reincarnation. No one could possibly get to be so stupid in just one lifetime.
If your IQ was as high as your weight, you'd be a gen

Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.
