Journal #2First off, a big apology to all the people wondering where I've been the last couple of weeks. Life has been... hectic as of late. But now that school's out I'll be dedicating quite a bit more time to deviantArt and to the activities that got me so involved in this site. Chiefly making some Daedric armor! I haven't had time to work on it but I'm still very excited about the project, mainly due to the discovery of bondo filler putty (A big thanks to fairlyodd1217, go check out his iron helmet http://fairlyodd1217.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5a0on4). My original daedric helmet is really rough because I lost patience with trying to smooth out the bondo, but now that I know better than to rush it (and filler putty to help smooth it even more) I'm thinking I can get my pieces to the prop level quality I had envisioned.
It's also worth nothing that I think it's high time I got with the times and make my files available for download. My original plan was to make this all very pers

Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi

Although usually associated with religious paintings as a form of portable personal iconography, the diptych can actually be any two images presented in side–by–side juxtaposition. Classic diptychs are joined together with a middle hinge, so the images can be “closed” and worn as a pendant on a chain. But art galleries often simply hang the “related” photos or paintings together, or place both within one frame—as is the case with the contemporary diptychs in this collection.

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

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

On TES elvesAlright can I just say how much I love the elves in the Elder ScrollsOn TES elves in Personal More Like This
J.R.R. Tolkien popularized elves as these otherworldly, divinely beautiful creatures which sorta established the standard for the race in all modern fantasy that came after. They're nearly immortal, distant, and to me, plain boring. Then around comes Morrowind, the game that really made me fall in love with TES, its world and its lore!! The elves of TES have a long history, and each subrace has their own cultural identity. The elves no longer just sit in their Crystal ivory towers (well I guess some of them do) and sing to their trees or whatever - they're flawed, complicated PEOPLE, and extremely proud of who they are. The haughty Altmer, the hostile Dunmer from the Ashlands, the cannibalistic Bosmer, the late Dwemer and their scientific achievements . when was the last time any elves modeled after Tolkien's work had this much cultural diversity??

Biokinesis the use of kinetic energy to reprogram cells and DNA.
So that's what it is?
I used this on myself?
Apparently my p-shifting isn't just from my therian blood.
Biokinesis is the use of kinetic energy to rearrange, or control genes inside of the body. If Biokinesis were mastered, wouldn't it be possible to genetically reprogram yourself? The answer, in theory, is yes.
By genetically reprogramming yourself, you could become a possible super human. Anything would be possible. For example, if you were to reprogram the genes in your eyes, you could make them see further and better. You'd also be able to see motions so fast, that they would normally not be possible to see. For super human, the reprogramming process would include things like lack of pain sensing, or something like that.
But there would be more to it that that! Yes, way more. It would take months for that type of evolution to take place. All the necessary things to be changed woul

she had 4 more female kittens and she didn't want to take the male she was hissing on him.
so my mom thought to take him home and raise him a bit. and then take him back to her work..
but my little sister got used to the cat.. and she cried, didn't want my mom to take him away.
so we kept him. now he is about 1 year old..

I am living with my mom about 3 years now, and most of my life I was living with my grandma, because my mom brake up with my father because he was a alcoholic and he then started living outside.. and my mom gone to live with another man (that my sister is from him, even thought about few months they stopped living together).
so because my grandma had health problems she couldn't hold a big apartment and pay for it.. so I had to move to my mom at the age of 18..
it was the most saddest day for me..

I live out in a rural county and have to take a fairly windy, two-lane road to get into town. I am on said road at dusk, going five under because the deer like to play chicken with my van. A muscle car with a souped-up engine, flame decals and the license plate "WRK 4 FUN" comes roaring up behind me, going at least 20 over the limit. the road is made of blind curves so he cannot pass me. This infuriates him, so he flashes his brights, curses, gives me the finger, etc. I do not speed up, because hitting a deer might kill me. After about 60 seconds, he decides to pass me on the left, on a blind curve.

I slam on the brakes and get out to make sure everyone is okay. He hit the cruiser mostly on the side, so the driver's side engine, mirror and door are wasted but no-one is seriously hurt.

This probably means he's somewhat inbred, but the slightly hippy-dippy owners of the graveyard think it means he's a "Spirit Animal" and let him stick around/feed him as a good luck thing.

Lightning has a pretty sweet deal going on- he gets a few corn cobs a week and all the lawn he can eat, plenty of large gravestones and a couple of mausoleums to hang out behind in case of nasty weather, and since he's well inside city limits, is perfectly safe from hunters, despite being a trophy animal. (and while Boulder Police have proved that there are people dumb enough to poach in the middle of residential areas, the people dumb enough to do that tend to also be superstitious enoug

Guy who commissioned work from me: Hey do you have that thing? I'm really excited to see what you came up with.
Me: Ah, no.
Guy: Where is it?
So, I had some commissioned work I've been doing for a guy who'd been serving in Korea, and I wanted to keep it super-safe, so I put it in my super-safe, water-fire-and-smudge proof portfolio/case. Which is also where I keep my botanical plates.
Which I had to turn in for a semester review.
And which, apparently, my teacher took with her on her annual trip to Finalnd.
We managed to get a hold of her briefly, she does have them, and they're fine, and will be back with her after the elections.

1. PROJECT HIPSTER-TROLL IS A SUCCESS!
Went to boyfriend's Brother's wedding, filled with equal parts Hipsters and old Jewish people, who were awesome (the Jewish people, not the hipsters, you ninnies). The ceremony was lovely, except that the couple had scheduled it for out doors at 3PM in June, prime thunderstorm time. When the judge got to the "does anyone here object" part, trollstorm responded with a truly spectacular crack of thunder. I have to applaud the judge who responded immediately with 'No more comments from the peanut gallery!" and got on with the ceremony before anyone could get electrocuted.
Once inside, I found I was seated with the music snobs and literally the first thing out of the bearded one's mouth was "so what do you listen to?" (beardy was the one who really got on boyfriend's case with the musical snobbery last tim

They may be only marginally accurate and heavily influenced by their fandoms.

The Hunger Games: Ancient Rome, but in the future. Also, stupid love triangle that makes me want to punch everyone involved.
Adventure time: A boy and his shiny ditto wander around Candyland harassing a creepy old man. Also, Penguins are the most evil things ever.
Game of Thrones: Over-sexed nobles (and one under-sexed one) with funny pets fight over a chair. Also, dwarf guy kicks ass.
Star Wars the Clone wars: A very British guy and his derpy-but-going-evil buddy have adventures in space with the most adorable soldiers ever. Also, some orange chick.
Avatar, the Last Airbender: OLD MAN IS BEST BENDER. and Hot guy sets things on fire. Also, some kid with an arrow on his head.

Bicyclists, a RantI am having an ongoing problem with certain bicyclists. (also, warning, long rant is long)Bicyclists, a Rant in Personal More Like This
To clarify, I group people who ride bicycles into three categories, as follows:
Commuters: People who ride their bikes every day, usually to go to work or class. I have no problem with these people because they do things like wear helmets, have proper lights on their bicycles, and obey traffic laws. I applaud them, and would join their ranks if my ears would let me balance on a bike.
Amateurs: People who ride their bikes only sometimes. In my town it's usually because of a festival or because they've had their license revoked for some reason. Perhaps it is because they aren't old enough, and are hence unfamiliar with the ways of the road, like riding with the traffic, and actually stopping at stop signs. More often, they ride because their licenses have been revoked for drinking, texting or because they're too old/blind. These people know the rules but apparently just don'

3. I like mac and cheese.
4. BEST. HALLOWEEN. EVER.
I stayed at boyfriend's house and we dressed as Costume Judges.
When trick-or-treaters came up, we would judge their costumes, hold up numbers and distribute candy accordingly. 1-3 got the crappy old people candy and lozenges , 4-6 got jolly mid-range candy like sweet-tarts, milk duds, etc. 7-9 got good candy like M&Ms, skittles, and mini-snickers. 10's (there were only 5) Got full-size Snickers or Hershey bars.
Most of the best costumes were parents and their very small children, and off-season cosplayers.
The absolute worst was the drunk guy who banged on the door at 3AM wearing nothing but a (regrettably, used) condom.
He claimed to be "Sexy" and stood on the porch drunkenly whining/yelling for "Rees pees"

For Equine-Artists-List 's purpose we have said that someone with 4 or more equine pieces may be considered an equine artist. (this is not to say that anyone with less can not also be an equine artist, but the purpose is to find those

Artists Toolbox: Colored PencilsColored pencils are widely used as a fun and readily available art tool. I'm sure most if not all of us have tried our hand at colored pencils, even if it was only while we were children. While colored pencils may not be as respected as paints such as oil, acrylic or watercolors, colored pencils shouldn't be under-estimated in the impact they can and do have on the art world.Artists Toolbox: Colored Pencils in Art Features More Like This
Different Types of Colored Pencils
Wax based colored pencils are probably the most common and readily available types of colored pencils on the market. As with any type of colored pencil, these come in varying qualities and prices.
Oil based colored pencils in my experience are not as easy to find unless you are shopping online or in an art store. These colored pencils are excellent if you are planing on coloring on wood or another similar surface. Blending oil based colored pencils ca
