Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.

There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.

Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer

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

No doubt it's someone who had a problem with the fact that Maxtaro recently got rid of his inflamatory Tumblr blog not too long after I spoke out on his actions a week ago. I got a few butthurt comments saying "You got my favorite blog deleted!" and some trolls coming to me giving me crap but in the words of a Pokemon fan, it's not very affective. Obviously I didn't ask Maxtaro to delete that, I just warned everyone about him. He deleted it on his own accord so if any of you fans of his are saddened by it, go whine and complain to him, he deleted, not me. If that's not the case and it's another kind of hater, well it doesn't matter, it's still not effective.
And don't show any sympathy for me because I'm really not hurt by this at all, it's actually quite funny if you think

I mean all the others were just constantly like "FUNFUNFUNFUNFUN!!!" and the real Pinkie isn't quite that ADHD. And someone pointed this out on YouTube: why didn't they just get the element of Laughter to test it out and see who the real Pinkie was? Well, it would have probably taken extra work to go get it rather than just get the paint they needed to dry. The part at the end with all the other Pinkie's getting sent back was hilarious! Apparently they can morph their faces and grow fingers (freaking hilarious!) and some of them get all bloated like balloons when they get shocked by Twilight's magic! The other Pinkies sure were hilarious and random and it was cute

This is what I would call an awkward movie. It has the big budget set pieces of an action movie, the sterile camera work of a romantic comedy, the colorfulness and style of a comic book adaptation, and the goofy acting and script of a parody. I can't tell if it wants to take itself seriously or make us laugh with it's "wit." I can't tell if it wants to have decent action, or just a bunch of quick cuts. It's very hard for me to pin down what this movie was trying to be.
There are moments when it seems like they're trying to copy The Princess Bride (one line in particular was lifted right from it), Indiana Jones (rivalry between colleagues over treasure where Indy always loses), The DaVinci Code (secret vaults and amazing machines), Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Kahn (submarine like battle in a nebula of clouds), Mr. and Mrs Smith (two competent secret agents who love each other), and Mission Impossible (tower heists and elaborate schemes).

1. Never offer artistic advice or hint at the possibility that the way young and inexperienced groups of artists work might in some way be flawed.
2. Every comic must be inherently drawn better and be funnier than the last.
3. Humor is NOT relative/subjective.
4. Nothing is funny. Ever.
5. Even the most trivial aspects of your comic must be taken 100% seriously.
6. Failure to incorporate conflicting suggestions for improvement = incapable of accepting criticism.
7. Trying to quelch flame wars also inexplicably = incapable of accepting criticism.
8. Trying to explain your artistic decisions = incapable of accepting criticism.
9. Having lots of watchers = having an inflated ego.
10. Reaching the frontpage = getting Daily Deviation.
11. Every character you draw (even ones you do for commission/jobs) = your personal opinions and beliefs which you must obviously follow rigidly IRL.

I've only been playing Minecraft for about 2-3 days now, so I am a total noob. For example I had no idea you could burn wood to make coal, which seems so logical now in retrospect.

I found redstone within 40 minutes of starting completely new! That's gotta be something, right?
The second game I started was actually the first I ever began. I had previously moved away from my nice comfy home to try and build the ultimate monster free safe house. It wasn't going well so I wanted to get back to my regular home, hence my awkward trips through the water and burning of trees to see where I was. T
1 Year of SYACIn January 2011 I started a small series called "So You're a Cartoonist" with the intent of only doing one or two of them. Due to the "controversial" nature of the first couple strips (note that I use quotation marks there) I received a lot of internet attention and before I knew it, the small series of annoying observations turned into a full blown web comic.1 Year of SYAC in Personal More Like This
Had I been able to foresee the series's popularity, I probably would've done a lot of things differently. I wouldn't have started by having so many episodes picking on things like Anime fanart and responses to trolls, and I would have done a much better job of setting up the comic's world and characters. As it stands right now, I"m still uncertain about what direction this series is going, though I am settling into a comfortable groove.
For me the success of the series has been a double edged sword. On the one hand it's helped me jump out of internet obscurity, opened up new comic opportunities, and gained me a huge online follow

I don’t hate Anime and MangaYou know, just because I am critical of Anime and Manga devotion, doesn't mean that I hate Anime and Manga. You're looking at a guy who owns around 32 hand painted cels from his favorite Anime shows and movies, has a row of Anime/Manga action figures standing perfectly in a row on my shelf in front of my computer, and has a rather extensive Anime DVD collection and two bookshelves of Manga.I don’t hate Anime and Manga in Personal More Like This
My criticism of Anime/Manga is less about the material itself, and more the common practice of style mimicry by my fellow artists. And even then, it's more that I am critical of it being used WRONG than the fact they're using it at all. I don't mind looking at Anime and Manga artwork, and I don't think it's wrong for people to MAKE Anime and Manga inspired artwork.
But I DO think it's wrong for people to copy the big eye'd style without understanding what goes into creating it, or how to use it properly. Too often when we're young we copy what we see first, and since Anime and Manga are so pervasive

After posting my SYAC comic about pirating, a DA user pointed me in the direction of a program called "crossover." Basically this program simulates running PC programs in a Mac environment without the need of a partition or installing Windows. The program costs about $40, but they have a 30 day trial and on a whim I decided to see if it worked. Lo and behold, within minutes I was playing one of the 2-D sidescrolling games I made about 5 years ago on my PC. Ahh the nostalgic memories of trying to program and art direct. When I switched to a Mac I had to leave behind a lot of small, but helpful, programs. Thus far I haven't really "needed" them to make any art, but it would be nice to be able to still use them and this program helps with that. Maybe during one of my upcoming livestreams I can broadcast some of the games I used to make?

SOPAA few months back I wrote a journal about an internet censorship bill that was looking to be passed in the congress. The bill was poorly written, but the broadness of the wording freaked a lot of internet dwellers out. People were scared their favorite websites would be censored or removed completely.

SOPA = Stop Online Piracy Act
Once again it's very broadly written and could have very serious implications if it gets passed. The bill is written with the expressed purpose of being able to take legal action against online piracy in foreign markets. It seems likely that the bill is meant to snub out piracy sites like ThePirateBay.org, but the wording is so broad that it's very possible that it could have serious repercussions elsewhere.
Yesterday the bill was supposed to be voted on, but it was delayed due to a filibuster. It's currently set to be voted

New front page system?Honestly I don't know how people will respond to this? Negative or positive? I don't know, all I know is I have to say it.New front page system? in Personal More Like This
I have already made a poll about it and it seems the majority weren't even aware there was a new system, most people actually thought it was a bug...says a lot about it already. Anyway... I have sent and inquiry and I can now officially confirm DA is running a new front page system. Let me explain what it basically does. The 'popular page' called so because popular works are featured there has changed. The new system is designed to give a leg up to more 'undiscovered artists'. Basically? the system no longer works according to favourites like the old system did. More obscure categories are granted priority over more popular ones e.g Fanart-anime manga- movies TV would be replaced by a image with a lower fav count from Fanart-digital-vector. Before I get lynched by people accusing me of being annoyed/jealous because my own work is no longer featured on the front pag
