FAN ART FRIDAY: Heroes In A Half Shell
New York City, chemical ooze, and the delicious smell of pizza can only mean one thing — Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
For being named after Renaissance artist greats, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo, had rather humble beginnings. Let’s travel back to 1983 to when Kevin Eastman created the idea for the turtles during a brainstorming session with his friend Peter Laird. Eastm

of Independent Cinema
Movies featuring the latest in high tech digital effects, eye-popping CGI environments and ear-splitting surround sound, are often described as “pushing the envelope.” But they’re mega-million-dollar productions that are delivered back to the studios by the filmmakers precisely as pre-ordered. Rarely is there danger of disaster, so what envelope has been pushed?
“Envelope-shredder” might be a better designation for Brian Taylor...
Who, usually in collaboration with partner-in-mayhem Mark Neveldine, has given the world such films as Crank, Crank: High Voltage, Gamer, Pathology, and recently Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

A Gallery of Narrative Dreams
A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Disney’s Academy Award Winning Big Hero 6 pushed the boundaries of realistic animated storytelling with Hyperion, the new software developed specifically for the film.
It simulates the physics of light, creating a more lifelike environment. Hyperion allowed the Big Hero 6 team to capture the air and light of San Francisco in a way never before possible and the spectacular results are visibl

Update! Added in a few more photos, as well as my Deidara trial cosplay. Sorry it's still taking me long to reply to everyone! My inbox is flooded. 22k+ messages, gah.
Ajisen Ramen near our school is closing down (much to our despair) so to say goodbye, we had a Shippuuden trial photoshoot. I say trial because it was just me and Sasuke that day, and my costume wasn't what I'd call complete. (It wasn't even mine, I just borrowed it to see if I'd be able to pull it off.)
I wasn't too sure how I'd fare as Naruto, but I'm glad there haven't been any violent objections about my character choice. We're still undecided about who we'll be cosplaying for the proper S

Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare!Before I write about cosplay makeup, I figured I should discuss some skincare basics. I feel it's important to know how to take care of your skin before you start putting gunk on it! This is really very basic so I think those of you with your own regimens already might be bored by it! But here it goes!Before Cosplay Makeup: Basic Skincare! in Personal More Like This
I'm not an awesome guru wizard thing, but I'll just share some general concepts and products that work for me. It's different for everybody, but I hope this will be helpful! For your sreference, my skin type is combination: normal to dry with an oily nose. Hahah! Not my T-zone, just my nose!
Recently, my male friends had gotten very interested in makeup for cosplay and asked me for tips on how to go about it. (I think this was fueled by Kaname's visit to our country for Cosplay Mania '12, and they saw how beautiful he looks. ) I decided to ask them about their skincare regimen to figure out what products might work for their skin type.

XNALara/XPS and Windows 10Hello Evryone!XNALara/XPS and Windows 10 in Personal More Like This
Just a quick Journal to tell you (the ones that didn't try yet) that XPS still works with Windows 10, so you can upgrade without worries. (Since my Installation is a fresh one and not actually upgraded from a previous used System you may not need to do this at all.)
However in order to get it to work you still need to download the XNA 3.0 Framework. Also you will need .NET 3.5 which is like in Windows 8 not automatically enabled. There are three ways to get it it, 1 is the utterly easiest way of all:
1. Run XPS and a popup will appear, telling you this application needs .NET 3.5. It asks if it should download the missing components so let it do that.
2. Enable it following these instructions: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_install/how-to-instal-net-framework-35-on-windows-10/450b3ba6-4d19-45ae-840e-78519f36d7a4
3. Download it from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21 and install.

XnaPosingStudio (XPS) is a "XNA Model Viewer" and 3D posing software based on (and compatible to) XNALara, for any 3D character. With a rather rudimentary way to make a keyframe animation. Free of charge.
There a few thousand different posable character for XNALara/XPS ... free available.

Hey dear watchers,
Here's a new XPS/ XNALara version. This time it has Temple of Osiris Lara models added with their original bone weights.
They are meant to be in original state, which is why some things like face posing may not be possible (as the ingame version doesn't have facial bones).

My Cartoon Network 20th RetrospectHey Guys!!My Cartoon Network 20th Retrospect in Personal More Like This
So ya'll should know by now that it Cartoon Network's 20th Birthday thoughout October.
I just wanted to tell my retrospective of the last 20 years.
I didn't discover CN until 1995 when my family got Cox cable. (god that's real old now XD)
I was a nickelodeon fan then. (How times have sadly changed.) When I finally watched CN, it was like love @ first sight. I got to see cartoons that I haven't seen before like The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Top Cat, Huckelberry Hound, Tom & Jerry, etc.
Nothing like Old School right!
Then 1997. That's when CN reallly shined. They started making original cartoons, called Cartoon Cartoons. Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, Cow & Chicken, Ed, Edd, & Eddy, 2 Stupid Dogs, I Am Weasel, Courage. Man I can go on and on.
And Of course, TOONAMI. The Best Damn Action Block Ever!!!!!!
I finally get to see what Anime was. DBZ, Reroni Kenshin, Yu Yu Hakasho, Gundam. And then [adult swim]. Cartoons that I was banned to watch cause of their

And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages. At first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
And then the whining school boy, with his satchel And shining morning face, creeping like snail Unwillingly to school.
And then the lover, Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad Made to his mistress' eyebrow.

Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and beaded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth.

Based on the timeless children’s book, Pollyanna is a beautifully realized portrait of the indomitable spirit of one person raising the dour spirits of those around her featuring stunning cinematography and winning performances. Sure it may be a little sentimental, but it doesn’t fall into full on schmaltz thanks to the talent on show.
