The Warrior and the Mage
“Preys of the thirst of blades and hunger of spells, what are we but witnesses of a war of two? Steel cloaks the hills as mist rises from the seas, and the night grows bright from shining swords and enchanted words. Whose blood will it be on the meadows, whose cry will echo the victory? When the drums are put to sleep, who will rule between the warrior and the mage?”

It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

Avoid UbisoftA while back, just after I had completed whichever iteration of Assassin’s Creed involved the pirate guy, I said that Watchdogs was probably going to be a crap game. A number of people said I was wrong to badmouth a game without playing it, but my argument was that you could gauge the quality of an upcoming title by the studio/publisher’s previous output. With that in mind, it’s fairly obvious that Ubisoft’s preferred method is to dazzle the weaker minded with pretty, pretty graphics in order to sell as many copies as possible before someone points out that the game actually plays like a dog (which – what ho - is exactly what Watchdogs did).Avoid Ubisoft in Personal More Like This

As with anything in the first world: if we can pay people to do it for us, we do. There’s nothing wrong with this, nor is there anything wrong with electing to hunt down your own food.

“Hunting is a legitimate sport!” Some people will no doubt cry, while stroking their favourite firearm.
No. It’s not.
Waiting for an animal to wander over to the bait you laid out for it so you can shoot it in its dumb face with a ranged weapon from your beer-can littered sitting position will NEVER be a “sport”.

Is Invisible Children Trustworthy?Since I posted the Kony 2012 video, a lot of people have been telling me that the organization is not to be trusted with donations and is under investigation (but raising awareness is still good).

" I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor do I doubt for a second that Joseph Kony is a very evil man. But despite this, I'm strongly opposed to the KONY 2012 campaign.
KONY 2012 is the product of a group called Invisible Children, a controversial activist group and not-for-profit. They've released 11 films, most with an accompanying bracelet colour (KONY 2012 is fittingly red), all of which focus on Joseph Kony. When we buy merch from them, when we link to their video, when we put up posters linking to their website, we support the organization.

I've noticed that these creative stages that you go through in that small time period of just one artwork is a manic type of emotional storm.The manic mania when you're Arting. in Personal More Like This
Funny enough, being artists also means you're probably a more sensitive person than most.
This following stage story is based on my own experience. Yours might be completely the same or perhaps you encounter different emotions thought he development stages. They are sort of placed in order, but you usually don't experience all of them in one artwork. (or do you?)

You got this idea in your head of the thing you want to make. It is not a completely clear vision, but you slowly get worked up and cannot wait to get started working on it. Sometimes if it takes to long for you to get started (procrastina

and this is what I tell them.
Find out for yourself what you really want to do with art, there are so many different professions.
Graphic designer, Concept artist (mobile and high end), Illustrator of bookcovers, or card games.
Once you can make your pick, or at least pick 1 or 2 you must find the best work on the market in those fields.
Find out what makes the best art of your favorite field the best art. What do they paint? How do they paint it? With knowing this you can find out about the things you need to study.
The most basic study aims are the following:
What forms of light art there? And how does it influence things?
The book Color and Light by James Gurney will give you a lot of insight.
How do you paint shapes? How do you light them the right way?

I want to fall in love with art all over again. Going through the painful process of growth as the art-bones stretch and your creativity get's set loose after wondering if you had any creativity at all!
2015 marks a new year and a new start, make the most of it and don't start it unprepared!
Here follows a list of things I'd like to do in 2015. You could call it a bucket-list. You can copy mine or make your own, but this might give you some ideas for yourself.
1. Going through all the fundamentals all over again.
It has been a few years that I studied any fundamentals and they seem to be lost somewhere in a dusty corner of my brain. I will buy: Books, video's, classes and study it by drawing or painting the knowledge I get from this. After doing so I will discus the topics with some fellow artist friends and see if they have feedback or perhaps anything to add that I might have missed.
Here is a
Home!Yes, I am back home. I hope this time it will be longer than one week before I/'ll get back there LOL. Two previous times when Igot back home from hospital, I stayed home for a week then I had to go back there because the pain and fever and all this shit came back. I hope this time I will stay home FOREVER (I mean, in next month I have to go back there for control tests and then I will have to go back there for like 4 days so they could take off the tube from my insides LOL I'm a cyborg I have artificial parts inside). When I was in hospital I tried to draaaaw to not forget how to do it completely, I finished few unfinished pictures, so I'll color them and soon finally upload new shit on my both accounts (this one and the KodamaCreative one). Also I'll try to answer on the most of the comments, thank you for so much warm, lovely words on my previous journals, for all wishes, you are all very lovely and I'm really not worthy to have so amazing watchers, friends and fans.Home! in Personal More Like This
LOL I got le daily deviation...on my newest picture "I am the Plague". I had to write le journal about it, because everyone does it, so I don't wanna be worse HURRRLOL I got le daily deviation in Personal More Like This
It wasn't suggested by anyone (thanks guys, I see how it is :iconthatsgreatplz: LOL) They even wrote something, like, "I am the Plague by *Yaoi-World is an atmospheric piece with good composition and appealingly sketchy line work. " appealingly sketchy line work, that's right baby, tell me moar :iconshewantsyouplz:
Apparently, when you get a DD you are not notified about it. If I wouldn't be vain and wouldn't click this picture to check how much views it got LOL (don't look at me like that, I know you do the same :iconbitchpleaseplz I wouldn't even know that it's there. So you know guys, it's good to check your EVERY. SINGLE. PICTURE. once for a while to see if there isn't any hidden daily deviation there.
And generally I don't feel so excited about it as I should I guess. I mean, looking at the level and numbe
Back again Q7Q/I hope none of you paid much attention to it, but week after I came back from hospital, I disappeared for another 1,5 week e7e; it's because I ended up in hospital again generally because I felt awful and as doctor said I had complication after previous treatment and they expected it, but absolutely not so soon. For now I'm back home, they told me that my pancreas (because that's the main reason of my problems) is slowly curing and in next month I should make some tests to see if everything is fine there. And let's hope that in meanwhile everything will be alright, even if doctor said that's pretty possible that soon I'll start to have same symptoms (so fucking optimistic we are, mr doctor). ANYWAY for now I'm back home on hard diet, I lost next 3 kilo, what gives 10 in total since my hospital adventures started LOL and I'm feeling weak BUT thanks god, sitting by my pc and drawing/writing doesn't force me to much of physical effort so I'll do my best to get back on my track and spam yoBack again Q7Q/ in Personal More Like This
This is not okay (about tracing)I just got a report from one observant and kind person about someone tracing of my picture.

This is kind of funny because few days ago I recieved another report about someone using this picture for this (gyazo link http://gyazo.com/168daa2efddfd7b4e0c88d7118dc7e5e ) and it makes me wonder if Christmas time is the time for people to become dicks or what?

A Message From The New Founder~Hello!A Message From The New Founder~ in Personal More Like This
As we all know, Romantic-Vandalism, this group's original founder, has moved on.
And as a result of this I am now the new founder.
I'm very excited to be here! I hope that you can all accept and support me, because honestly, running a group is rather challenging, and I will need you all to help me with this task.
To help improve the group, I have found someone to take the place of co founder.
:iconHaseFick: will be filling this position. She will be doing blogs and helping out with contests and such.
In the following weeks I hope to help get this group back on track. I plan on having weekly updates, talking about the latest FMA related news and I will feature an artist as well.
Thank you for putting up with so much (What with the leadership changes and lack of activity) and for reading this message.
Leaving PLEASE READWe need a new founder. Sadly, the days of me liking FMA is starting to dwindle and I cannot keep running this club. I apologize for that. However I need someone to replace me. The other co-founders have also lost a great deal of interest in this club to. So please if anyone wants to take on the job of running this club PLEASE NOTE *Romantic-VandalismLeaving PLEASE READ in Personal More Like This
