Thank you, Anonymous Deviant : )
Appreciate it much.
Thanks thanks... : )
Still catching up... : )
So many new features... done browsing the 9,000+ deviations in my devwatch stacks.
It's been a while.

Yeah I know.

Been a while since I've done something GFX-related. That is, of course, if you don't include those LEGO art.

Sometimes the demons in this soul need release.

Too many of them these days.

I lost count when I noticed the nine inch fanged one with blue eyes.

With nose rings.

Art... always is a good outlet.

A good release.

Of demons and nurtured ewoks alike.

The luckier demons become works in progress.

Others... rough sketches on paper.

The unluckier ones are stuck in the mind. To be recycled into demons once again.

Stripped of their vanities.

Yet twice the demons they were before.

And fatter this time.

Those recycled demons.

Some though manifest their desires in dreams.

I desire a new blanket of dreams tonight.
... will catch up... : )
PAGING Halferlove... PAGING holoden.

Hmm... back to code-works.
DevArt should do something about its journal navigation buttons.  MY
Jedi instincts are having a hard time looking for the Edit button
every now and then.

NOW the six weird THINGS about ME (TAGGED BY Tessa/hackweed)

I can't work in front of the computer if I'm not
WEARING a three year old white hanes t-shirt.
(I don't care if it has five holes in it already.)

I refrain from TYPING the small letter 'g' if possible.
I believe it is used by aliens as a hypnosis tool for
their first wave of invasion.

I pull nose hairs (MY nose hairs) to feel pain and know that I'm alive.

I teach The Force to my kids. Now you hear my
4++ year old girl saying 'Use the force, Papa'
every now and then. A week ago she upgraded to
'You can't touch me my force field is on.' (MY 3 year
old boy does not talk fluently yet so we
communicate through mental telepathy.)

(Music... war... and neurons.  foxpro.ntsl119.com/archives/00…)

EVERY time I see cool artworks online (AND OFFLINE)
my fingers gear towards a place where I can find an
Add Favourite button. Even if it's not DeviantArt.

I believe that an upcoming massive alien invasion is
inevitable and that the sound that U2 produces is our
salvation. SUNDAY BLOOODY SUNDAY.

There are instances that I view 6 as 8 or 3. Must be the font... : ]

"Papa, let's use the force na lang."

That's what my four year old told me when the bouncing ball we were playing with rolled underneath the chair and we were both too bummed out to move our butts to get it.

Any DeviantPrints tips you would like to share?  What resolution should I be using... dimensions... dpi... etc.

Any insights would be of great help... thanks in advance.
The 15th pack of DepthCore was released days ago… along with some 'heated discussions'.

185 submissions for the 15th pack for an art group existing for 2 years and 7 months…  

Quite some numbers.

Last night I excavated my CDR-chives.  These hold my internet loots.  The collections that would not fit anymore in my dual 80GB hard disk are stored there.

One of these CDs contains Depthcore's first release… the Cataclysm Pack.  Released June of 2002, after being delayed for two months since its inception on the third month of that year.

The old blue-ish box-type lay-out is there.  The artworks are there.  The pioneer member list was there.

We were 15 then.  Just 15. And the release contained around 35 artworks… individual pieces and collaborations included.

Yes we were 15… but we have among other things… respect.

Respect.

Respect for a fellow member's skill.  Respect for his artwork.  Respect for Depthcore.

It wasn't written officially. But it was there.

We have respect for the group as a whole.  We don't submit rushed-for-the-sake-of-submission artworks.  (And please don't get me wrong here… I'm not saying there are rushed submissions as of late (besides who am I to judge one's artwork when I am here miles away from a fellow depthcore member)).

I remember working on Splendid Illusion, our first collab with Justin.  I remember the 32MB .psd file on my AMD 350Mhz/128SDRAM machine.  I remember the effort placed on that piece.  I remember how long it would take to open that file.

It was all for the love of Depthcore…or as I would prefer stating it… respect for Depthcore.

The 'digital to the core' line…

Of course we have 'negative-trendwhore-trendwhore' feedbacks even then.  (Which probably had inspired the url of one of our founders : ] )  

But we have always, as Justin points out… lived with that the-hell-with-them attitude.  We had fun… we create… we release… DC-life goes on.

Honestly I have no problems if it's 2D or 3D or 4D or 6D.  It's the effort that is placed into the artwork that counts a lot.  The passion fused… which is partly in line with respect for the 'core'.

And who else can judge that but the individual himself.  Not me… not the viewers… not the founders but the creator itself.  We don't often moderate (I don't remember having one) submissions from day one.  We assume that when you were admitted/recruited to this group you know what depthcore quality is.

And you have respect for the legacy of depthcore.

I don't have problems too seeing heated arguments… and 'internal love fights'. If things bleed, it shows we're alive.

It shows too that we have freedom within.  The borg don't rule us.  We tame the borg.

What I'm having a hard time accepting are the pissing-each-other-kiddie attitudes.

I have nothing against a fellow depthcore member views even if it is partly against the group (or the current pack).  If it makes sense, then why not listen?

If it is released then there are underlying reasons.  In fact I admire the honesty and straightforwardness.  I admire the candor.

I don't have problems with our lead defending the group.  I admire that too.

What I don't admire are the one-line arguments made for the purpose of mocking which is of course detouring the topic at hand.

Depthcore is about skills and respect.  Not about skills alone.  Nor respect alone… it goes hand in hand.

The old members have carried this group with pride, skills and respect.

Engrave that legacy into your digital souls.

Happy Easter, everyone!
What makes you… you.


On our way home after a client visit this day, I was too tired from two weeks of almost virtually having no sleep creating Project Sopheia, that I was able to sleep in the bus.  In the middle of the travel, I have this realistic dream that I was passing this part of the road where we usually pass on our way home.  We've been passing that part for almost a year now and I was not quite surprised that the image projected in my dreams was so realistic and not the usual fuzzy, distorted and dragon-filled weird type of dream.

I woke up just minutes before reaching that part and ironically, the bus driver decided to use a different route… for reasons unknown to me… for the first time.  I wasn't even aware this alternate route exists until that moment.

It didn't bother me that much, we're at home now and as usual I'm still in front of the computer at two in the morning.  I was even about to sleep when I realized what if I was not dreaming?  What if there's this certain portal that took a part of me (or worse the whole part of me) and it was a parallel world journey that was manifested in that dream.

What if dreams are a sort of 'bug' in that system of body snatching, swapping and bouncing beyond parallel dimensions.  What if it is this very bug that causes dreams?  What makes me sure that this is really me?  That I am really what I am.  Besides, what makes you so sure that you are really you?

What if some species in time are able to grab memory already, compress, decompress and store it on a different body.  How will that body recognize?  What if all this soul searching, journeying inwards is caused by this swapping of entities or whatever you call the human body and soul?  You tend to look for the 'original' you... beyond time, beyond space.  That's the whole quest of out lives… forever looking for that part of us, that very self that was snatched while we are abducted from one dimension to another.

How will I know?  How will you know?
I've been very busy with work lately... haven't touched digital art related matters for quite some time.  But i'll be back.
For now... if you're interested in blogs or foxpro or programming and anything infotech related, you might be
interested with these workblogs of mine.

Stay cool, deviants.
Got infected/hit with that W32/MYDoommm mass-mailing worm.  Someone was kind enough to tell me about the symptom of that worm a couple of days ago.  It was tonight when the problem worsen that i visited Symantec.com
www.symantec.com
and verified that i am indeed infected.

Anyway... you can download a removal tool at SYMANTEC.  That's what i used to remove the worm.  
securityresponse.symantec.com/…

You can view more info abou this worm in the links:
securityresponse.symantec.com/…

APOLOGIES to those who have received this worm from me.
Maybe someone can invite this guy to join DEVART.
Awesome sidewalk chalk art...

I know how to operate this PC... tinker with the inner things (or chips if you prefer)... tweak and optimize.
Change hard drives using the left hand (right hand raised... eyes on TV) and press ALT-CTRL-DEL two minutes before
Windows shows its famous Blue screen of death (which i have customized to a green one btw)

... BUT
i don't know how to operate a microwave oven.
Now it's 01:31AM... i'm coding and i'm HUNGRY.
Life it seems never runs out of irony.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
DeviantArt is about sharing... something like Christmas if you don't believe one.
