  2. Why isn't there a better education system yet !?

  3. Did any of you guys heard the rumor of a possible release of Blade & Soul in NA/EU before the Aion 4.5 update ?

      Aion 4.5 for NA launches on the 29/1/2014.

      Aari

      It was my pleasure.

  4. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6Cl6nHv_uw You don't need to understand the concept/beauty of orchestral music to know this piece of art here is simply breath-taking
    1. Hyuna

      Hyuna

      That sounds similar to a theme in Super Smash Bros.

  5. What does "censoring" mean, in this context :huh:
  6. How Bns Was Made

      xDraGoon

      Please spare me your hypocrisy and dry sarcasm

  8. Heya, thanks for the art-suggestion. Will take it into consideration when I'm working on something again, although I have since compensated for it and things are working out fine.

    Thanks you, regardless, though :]

    - Lith. ...Colorful.

  9. Sword of the Stranger: 10/10

  10. If you still have problems with coloring try using a water brush and watercolour pencils. I had trouble with coloring as well and it really helped me.

  11. Finally learned to play this ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAkoDHYpJLo ) on piano. I'm so happy right now (> ~ <)

    1. Lithia

      Lithia

      Good to see a fellow pianist here :3

      Does the song have the same feel without the back-beat, though? (or does the sheet-music compensate for that as well?)

      Regardless: nice song.

      - Lith. ...Pianism.

    2. xDraGoon

      xDraGoon

      Yes i listened to a few arrangements and changed a few parts, but it definitely sounds awesome even without the back-beat.

  12. The world is kind of like a 7 billion piece jigsaw puzzle. Every single person in the world is one of the pieces. Every person in the world has a specific place, but you can’t force one of them to be in a place they don’t belong. When you do that, the edges get kinda wrinkled, and if you try too hard, the edges will get so bent that that piece will never fit again.

    1. Tashigi

      Tashigi

      Disagree respectfully.

    2. Asuna

      Asuna

      gonna agree with tashigi.
