Reading Challenge 2016This year I will be continuing my reading challenge from last year, updating only those categories, which have no entries so far. So I won't spam you, my dear watchers, too often (especially with 'Book you own but never read')
And I am not going to post any new reading challenges after finishing this. If you would still be interested to know, what I am reading, you can find me on GoodReads (username is the same as here on DeviantArt). Sometimes I add book reviews on that site, but so far they are all in Lithuanian. If I read the book in English, might write review in English. But so far most of my reads are in Lithuanian.

Reading Challenge 2015Reading Challenge 2015
I am not going to read all of these books in one year. For me it is more like lifetime goal. I just need this to motivate myself into reading something not usual for me
If the same book fits more than one category, I will write it at all of them. (No, it's not cheating in order to finish challenge faster. At least I don't consider it as this )
[x] A book with more than 500 pages: "The Works of Edgar Allan Poe"; "The Magus" by John Fowles
 A classic romance:
[x] A book that became a movie: "The Works of Edgar Allan Poe"; "Allegiant" by Veronica Roth; "The Magus" by John Fowles

ContestsThis summer I decided to join 2 contests and create something in traditional art
The first one is "Unzip your genes" hosted by :iconyoungmoons: http://youngmoons.deviantart.com/journal/Traditional-art-contest-Unzip-Your-Genes-362480930
And this is my entry to it:
The second one is "Abstract Art" hosted by :iconx-EQ-x: http://x-eq-x.deviantart.com/journal/Abstract-Art-Contest-366473415
My entry to it:
Work updateI looked through some of my photos taken in summer and decided to upload some of them.
This time I tried Color & Balance function to come up with interesting colours.
Here are the results:
One More FeatureThe last feature of 10 favourites. This time they are from different categories.
Everyone can believe in whatever he or she wants.
This one says everything by itself.
This piece of literature shook me very deeply.
1000 words can change a life.
Stereotypes... They are so absurd.
It feels better then someone hates same things as me. I feel like I am not the only one getting annoyed by various things.
Can someone explain why Twilight is so popular? I read the books (they were interesting), saw the movies (not so good), but still can't understand this obsession of some people.
This 3D render looks so realistic!
Pixar becomes Pixel
Comics FeatureMy top 10 favourite comics.
She is queen of comics and probably everybody knows why
And he might be king of comics.
Very interesting futuristic/surrealistic concepts.
Good sense of humour.
I just love how stupid this fox is!
The reality of students' life.
Awkward situations are funny.
Does this mean that you can die out of hunger because you are in love?
Artisan Crafts FeatureI have a very few artisan crafts in my favourites.
She makes very nice and original jewellry.
I am a fan of Harry Potter series and this artist does very good repaints of original dolls to look them more natural.
This polymer clay rose looks very realistic.
Such a tiny hippo!
I love tiny replicas of real things.
Some imagination, free time, desire and it is possible to make your own toys.
Origami is very interesting kind of art. It requires being very accurate.
I like then fantasy things come to real life.
The flower looks very nice.
Photography FeatureTop 10 photos from my favourites.
Truly amazing. Just love how this photo looks. It makes me feel so small. And the building reminds me of ship shearing the seas of sky.
The man in the photo looks fearless. And he can catch fish with his bare hands! I think now I know how ideal man looks like
The first time I saw this, I thought that this is a drawing with black pen.
Empty, abandoned places always looked charming for me. While looking at photos like this, I think what was there before, who lived there and so on and on.
For now forest is my favourite thing in photos. Especially mysterious, foggy and dark ones.
The colours are so vibrant. Sometimes I think that this artist is trimming between photography and photo manipulation with risking to over saturate colou
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper

Find Your Homestuck Troll Blood Color!Yeah so here is how it works! You need to figure out your sun sign, and your moon sign. There is a calculator similar to this one out there, but it doesn't take in account jade bloods or mutants. This also doesn't require rounding. Hussie has already stated that the only troll blood colors that exist are the ones we have seen in the comic + lime. I also had to take in account that the jade blood color is rare, but the odds of getting jade with the distribution unadjusted are extremely high, so I figured out a way to make it work so it makes sense. I also took in account that fuchsia blood is extremely rare, and so is being mutant. The distribution that I am working with is a pyramid. I'll explain the breakdown at the end.

The Simple Character Creator FormulaThis is a copy-paste (with some additions) from my Tumblr blog (http://spaztique.tumblr.com/), but it must be reposted.
Twilight of the Hakurei, the club-wide comic tennis/RP (http://walfasstationwagon.deviantart.com/gallery/41877816), is turning out just as I suspected: AMAZINGLY. However, one thing that really astounds me is how well the character system is working. If you're not familiar, it's simply this:
1. Pick the character's biggest strength that affects other people. Note the key phrase, "that affects other people." For example, "He's really good at cooking," is not a strength: that's just a regular skill that only applies to one area of life and doesn't really affect others. However, "He's a fast learner," or, "He pays attention to detail," or, "He's very generous," is a strength because it applies to more than just cooking, but any other skill and especially relationships.
2. Pick the character's biggest weakness that affects other people. Once ag
