Altered Destinies 2 COM by OrionPax09
Altered Destinies 2 COM
This is a commission for :iconhaster:, depicting a scene from his fanfic, "Altered Destinies". Here we see Shinji after getting dumped in the pool, and not getting a lot of sympathy.

Update: Rei's highlighting and shading is now complete, and I've done some extra touching up. Now, onto Asuka.

Attack Turtle
When Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman first came up with the idea of the TMNT, a lot of people were probably surprised by the idea that cute, pet turtles could ever be dangerous. But this little guy proves otherwise...

If you want to see just how far this turtle will take it against cats that are more than twice his size, check this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QpVCQ…

A Step Forward and a Delay At Once

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 16, 2015, 6:41 PM


COMMISSIONS WAITING LIST


As I've mentioned before, my new painting program, Manga Studio 5, is far more versatile and has a lot more going for it than anything I've previously worked with, and as people have seen, I'm getting much better results. And as such, I've been able to abandon some of the tricks and shortcuts I've previously used to achieve my previous artworks for new techniques that have gotten me much better results.

However, at the same time, there have been a few hitches.

One of the tricks I've abandoned was simply using black as my catchall shading color and relying on different blending modes to make a piece work. The benefit of this is that my pieces have been turning out much better. But the problem is that I now have to manually choose different colors for each layer of shading and highlighting. And while Manga Studio 5's capabilities make putting the colors in place a piece of cake, choosing the colors has proven to be a trickier.

To aide in the selection, I've been tracking down swatches for hair and skin colors, but even so, it does take time to set up entire color palettes for a piece. But then I realized that perhaps I can save myself some future aggravation by setting up color, shading, and highlighting palettes for characters I routinely draw. So I've been working on setting up such character references to save myself trouble. So far, it seems to be working, though I do expect that it will take a bit longer to get everything down the way it should be.

On the subject of art, I'm going to be spending some time, focusing on clearing up the commissions that the mess that is my life has slowed me down on. Again, I appreciate the patience everyone has shown me, and I vow that I will get everything done as soon as possible.

Spring Break Rape Goes Unchallenged

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 16, 2015, 5:54 PM


COMMISSIONS WAITING LIST


Edmund Burke is quoted as saying, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Well, that saying was spelled out in a very graphic, horrific manner during Spring Break in Panama City, Florida, where a girl was gang-raped on the beach, in broad daylight, in front of hundreds of men and women. Any one of which could have stepped in and done something to try and help her. And instead, simply stood back, continuing to party while watching the show and even recording the rape for posterity.

What makes this even more horrendous was the fact that this travesty might well have never been discovered. The victim herself reported that she didn't remember the incident, and that she might have been drugged. If the witness who had recorded the crime hadn't been investigated by police in Alabama in regards to a shooting, and if those police hadn't stumbled upon the video stored in a cell phone, this crime might never have been uncovered.

Sheriff Frank McKeithen called the video, "Probably one of the most disgusting, repulsive, sickening things that I have seen this year on Panama City Beach, and I have seen a lot of them." He also went on to say, "Within 10 feet from where this is happening, there are hundreds, hundreds of people standing there watching, looking, seeing, hearing what is going on, and yet our culture and our society and our young people have got to the point where obviously this is acceptable somewhere, but I will tell you it is not acceptable in Bay County."

Here are some links on this story.

And on top of all this, McKeithen also made it clear that this is far from the first such video that the police have discovered. And I have to shudder at the thought of how these people have come to treat such a monstrous act of cruelty. They don't report it, they don't do anything to help the girl in question. They just stand back and enjoy the 'free entertainment'.

I only have one thing to say to all of those :censored: who were too busy getting drunk and lighting up and whatever to do so much as lift a finger to stop a rape; I hope you all burn in Hell.
