34,633 Deviants Online
Starting from 11th result Go to first result

Hi guys! This is the first time I'm doing this and I hope this continues on, if everyone enjoys this! :heart:
Every beginning of the month, I will randomly choose 5 deviants in my watch list to feature and pick 3 pieces of their artwork that I enjoy~
As a bonus, I will also give a short piece of feedback about their art (not a critique unless prompted afterwards)!

I will be using as my random number generator and pick accordingly to the numbers of my watchers!

Let's begin!

Our first feature is:


Galaxy by Gansta-kitty Warrior Designs by Gansta-kittyGray Wing by Gansta-kitty

Ok, I really live your art style! It's super adorbs :heart: Usually, I don't like to draw animals, but you make me want to draw cats cats cats!!!

Our second feature is:


For my Mentor by Witchy-Cat Japanese Flash by Witchy-Cat Blue haired bae by Witchy-Cat

The Showcase

If you granted a wish or if your wish was granted, please leave a comment or send the group a note. We need to know who granted the wish and who has their wish granted. If you grant multiple wishes, please save us time by listing everyone instead of just saying you granted everyone's wish. For core membership and point wishes, please tell us if you granted the wish in full.

Please note that the wishes to be featured are usually gathered on Friday and the features might come a few days later, meaning that your wish might not be feature then but the week after. We also limit journals to a maximum of 30 wishes.

That's all for this week folks! Wish Fondue will return next week with new wishes.

Contest! Grand prize over 2k points!Hello and welcome to our first contest!
We are honored to host a contest with Deneesi and SoggyGames - they are looking for a pixel start screen that can be used in their game. All the details are below!
Theme of the Contest: Start screen for "Neon Rampage" game
:bulletgreen: What is Neon Rampage? 
It's an original space shooter, designed for mobile gaming. The main goal is to survive and buy upgrades. Shoot and dodge while hordes of varied enemies come raining down. 
The game itself is still deep in development, but it is available to download here (note that there are still bugs in the game).
Although the game graphics are not pixel art, the creators still desire a pixel start screen.
This game will be available to be downloaded for free. However, you can donate to support the creators here<

:iconcrliterature: :iconcommunityrelations:
Ghouls and Ghasts and ne'er do wells, welcome once again to the LaBORatory for our annual celebration of stories in the season of all things spooky.
This year, we return to the abandoned house at the end of the block, with the upstairs window from which something always seems to wave at passersby. We drive along the lonely stretch of road at midnight, eyes unblinking, hoping to catch a glimpse of the girl who hitches a ride, only to vanish from the passenger seat when we pass the old cemetery. We point trembling fingers over the rail at the spectral ship that has spelled the doom of generations of captains and crew. We roll the ball into the old, dark nursery, and wait to see if it will roll back out again.
This year, we are telling ghost stories. Have a seat by the fire, won't you?

Eleven.. Cover Contest!
So, for as long as I can remember I've had access to the most incredible range of books, from novels, tall tales and everything in between; all of those I've read (and I'm sure you all agree) it's most frequently their covers you immediately think of when you hear their titles.  It goes without saying that a picture tells a thousands words, and cover art, for that specific reason has to grab the reader by the eyeballs and hold their attention right through to the very last page in a yummy, captivating smorgasbord of plot teasers, incredible characters and dreamy (or dystopian) landscapes.   Essentially, book cover p0rn :D
Visiting bookshops used to be as much about the cover art as it was about the text on the pages, which is why these days seeing the dozens of dreary, completely plain covers which do absolutely NOTHING to sell the book leaves me a little cold.  Further I just can't understand why publishers are going in this direction.

Talks with Tolkien artists: DanPilla

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 5, 2015, 5:39 AM

This is the 50th interview in this series! Celebrate 
:icondanpilla: - DanPilla is a digital artist from Brazil. He claims to be a hobbyist artists, but it is hard to believe that he is not a professional when looking at his work:

Legolas by DanPilla Gandalf by DanPilla

Ancalagon vs Earendil by DanPilla
Annatar (Sauron) by DanPilla Galadriel by DanPilla
Ulmo And Tuor by DanPilla

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?

I live in a very small town in Brazil, far from big cities. I love to draw fantasy. Also I love books, movies and television shows. I like to collect all about Tolkien's Middle Earth, but my collection is still very small. And I am also very passionate about video games!

2. When did you read Tolkien's books for the first time, and what impression did they leave in you?

I was very impressed, I was completely attracted. It is impossible not to love the atmosphere of Middle-earth.

3. How extensive is your knowledge of Middle-earth? Do you consider yourself Tolkien expert?

I do not consider myself an expert on Tolkien. There is still much to browse and read. It takes much time to assimilate everything, and my time is a little limited because of work.

4. Did you read the books, or see the movies first? How much did the movies influence your imagination when reading the books?

The movies. I started reading "The Lord of the Rings" after seeing the film in theaters in 2001, so this greatly influenced me in my reading. But that was a long time ago, and I still did not draw as we as today.

5. Now, could you tell us something about you and art? Are you a professional artist, or is art just your hobby? When did you start doing it, and who or what influenced your style?

Drawing is a hobby for me. I wish this activity would give me profits, then I would be earning for doing what I love. I draw since I was a kid, but I just started doing digital art since 2001, when I bought a tablet. Many artists I meet on Deviant Art are sources of inspiration, there is extremely talented staff here. Many movies, books and games also influence me.

6. You have been on deviantar for several years, but started submitting Tolkien fanart, from character designs to epic scenes from the Silmarillion, only at the beginning of this year. What happened in that time?

Long ago I imagined doing artworks of Middle-earth. But it was only in 2014 that I felt I was really ready and dominating the digital arts to start drawing Tolkien. But I know that I have still much to learn about digital.

7. How do you choose which scenes and characters to illustrate?

Sometimes reading a passage inspires me or one of the scenes of some of the movies. Or when I see the work of any other artist.

8. Who is your favourite Tolkien character?

Gandalf! Needless to think about it to be able to say, lol

9. What other book or movies (or anything else) inspire you to create fanart, and why?

I have dozens of ideas for new designs, but I have little time to execute those ideas. I could cite many films and books, but I'll tell you what I'm currently doing: a fanart based on the game "Bloodborne" which I am hooked to.

10. What art technique is your favourite? Do you rather keep to the art techniques and styles you are familiar with, or do you experiment with new ones as well?

My art is digital, so I like to use the tablet and Photoshop. I am always with an open mind to learn new ways within digital art.

11. Do you have some tips and tricks you would like to share with the other artists?

I'm always looking for tips and tricks myself. Watching tutorials on youtube and watching the work of artists I like.

12. Could you give us a link or thumbnail from your gallery of
- a Tolkien illustration you are most proud of?

Roads Go Ever Ever On by DanPilla

- a picture from other fandom or original picture you are most proud of?

The Great Battle (2014 Version) by DanPilla
(In this drawing I felt I evolved, so for me its a milestone.)

- a picture that fits your current mood?
The Serpent God by DanPilla
(looking forward to big events)

- a picture that was hardest to paint?

The same Tolkien illustration that I am most proud of, Roads Go Ever Ever On

- any other picture you would like to share with us and why?

Not finished!! lol

13. Is there some artist(s) at dA you know, who doesn't have as much attention as they would deserve? If yes, could you give us some thumbnails from their gallery?

This is a great artist: :iconpeet:
Gwindor's Charge by peet

15. Is there something else you would like to tell to the fans of Tolkien and your art?

I would to like to say thank you, thank you so much for give me support! And follow me on facebook:…

Thank you very much for your time and answers!

15 Under 15 FeatureFirst, I keep forgetting to link you all to an interview I did for a local business about my photography. It's not terribly exciting (because I'm not terribly exciting), but you can read it here:
Second, don't forget to send me suggestions for fashion portrait and commercial fashion DD's! Suggest a favorite artist, your friend, and even yourself! Your suggestions are highly appreciated! :heart:
Third, tomorrow will be the day I submit some non-people photos.  Prepare for the apocalypse, or something like that. They're of some abandoned buildings I explored in California a couple of years ago. I am desperate to go back, so I figured reminiscing would be nice and I never remembered to submit them here before :P Oh!  And then I have a few street and architecture photos from then to submit as well, I just won't be submitting them all tomorrow. And hosagu has presented me with a photo challenge to capture a butterfly photo or two as a
15 Under 15 Feature 2I think I'm going to make this my new continuous series for features, what do you think?

15 Under 15 Feature 4I had a thought yesterday inspired by my frustration with the universe. I'm sure it's been said before and said better by others, but: Why are we so focused on the negatives and what we hate, instead of the positives and what we love? I always make a point to feature work that I love and promote artists I love, because, well, I love them and I want them to succeed. However, the negativity is sometimes overwhelming especially when I'm scrolling through my facebook feed,  photographers and models are constantly cutting down other photographers and models publicly.  If we all promoted a little more love (not just for photography and the rest of the arts, but for everything), it would make the world a much lovelier place to live in! Promoting somebody else's hard work doesn't make your own work any less. Anyways, just some things to think about!
And on to this week's 15 under 15 feature, which promotes 15 exceptional and inspiring deviations with under 15 favorites!

The first 20 people that comment on this journal (I might do more) will be featured below and I'll choose three deviations I like most from their gallery! 
If you comment, you must to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (me) and three pieces of my art on the first place. 
The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone

1 :iconaskchiliandcinnamon: I consider them as an amazing person to talk to, silly and just plain awesome. I love them, and would do quite a lot to make sure they're happy.

Question 152 - Enter Jamie and Rea's Nieces by AskChiliAndCinnamon
Shia is just the cutest thing~ I seriously expect her to end up in Wonderland. Every time I see Daryn, I think WARFSTACHE~! Lena looks like she's going to kill me, so I'll stop looking at her. O.O

Shadows Begone by AskChiliAndCinnamon
This one definitely made my heart strings get ripped out. I just love the dream-like atmosphere and theme of revival in this piece. <3

Question 110 by AskChiliAndCinnamon
I can't say much except that I was going through a little bit of depression when this cane out, and it lifted me right out of it. This amazing person has such a silly yet serious art style that I love so much.

2 :iconbackburner26: I don't really know him as well as I would like to, but I consider us friends, definitely.

Elite Duo Burner and Sean by backburner26
Anything Pokémon I instantly love, especially if it involves my buddy Sean~! You did a great job on this! 

Needed Help by backburner26
It's a little sad but true. I wish I could give all of my friends a really big hug. 

Burner Buck Icon by backburner26 
There isn't really much I can say other than that it's made exceptionally well~!

4 :iconyour-golden-heart: I can't describe him, even if I had a million years to. Love you~

The Audio Message (IDATSPA) 1The house was empty, silent, the owner had been away all day. And then with a tiny golden light and a small pop sound, he appeared out of nowhere. 
"I find it ironic that in a world where humans are Pokemon and Pokemon are humans, they have more trouble then our world." The human said to himself, as he walked around his house, making sure everything was ok. Just then, he got a text from his boss. 
"Jack, I told you to take the day off from work, so why the heck did you work?"
"Wow, he must not know me whatsoever." Jack said as he texted back. 
"Look, Arceus, I know you're worried about me, but it happened five years ago!"
To which Arceus typed back: 
"Ugh, fine, but if you're gonna pull a stunt like that again, at least do it with a partner."
"Oh my..., no, I'm calling him." Jack said, bringing Arceus up in his contacts and hitting the call button. After a couple of rings he picked up. "What, Jack?" "Look, sir, I respect that you're worried for me, I respect that yo
A bewitching and lurid chapter, I can't help but have my spirit be encaptured by its beauty.

  The Dark.It always starts with the dark. It can be comforting to some. Downright terrible for others. And then there are the lonely ones. They can stand the dark, because in a see of sadness and nothingness, it makes them feel better. I don't know why, I'm not that far. 
Anyways, lonely people are sad people. I'm a lonely person. I am also a good person. But we all know what happens to good people. Their lives destroy them. It's almost impossible to be nice these days, because whenever you are, the world throws everything bad that can ruin your life. 
As it might have done to me. I don't know. 
Anyways, the dark can help someone feel less pain. It can make your problems feel like nothing, because your problems are surrounded by nothing. Nothing can feed it, keep it going, or ask it to change. It has no input, so eventually, your problem is nothing to you anymore.
The dark.
Anyways, if you don't know what I'm talking about, just forget about this journal. I'm talking to anyone rea
Though this piece is directed personally to someone, I must say that I keep coming back to it, with its mysterious charms and somber atmosphere.

  The KnightI'm here to protect you
do what I can do
to save you from the collapse
of the world around you
I tried to be around
both night and day
but when I had been banished
there was nothing I could say
I had left you in the rubble
and I couldn't dig you out
because it wasn't my fault I had left
it was the King and Queen, but I'll come back, without a doubt
I've taken off my armor
that had once been so bright
and my sword and shield are gone from hand
to lay dead in the light and the night
Now without my armor I finally find you
And you look up and gasp
for without my armor, you realize
It was when I left that your world collapsed
I hope you realize that I'm just the prince
and the King and Queen control me
But when it comes to you, I don't care what they say
For you, I'll try anyway
When I left, your world turned rubble
And it covered every part of you
But the King and Queen, I have to defy
I'll dig you out, and that's because I love you
This one definitely tugged at my heart. Whoever these are written for, I feel happy that they have this amazing guy for them. 

5 :iconibanyourface1982: He's on of my besties~

I love things that make me so sad I cry. One of these are really heart warming for a bit, but still.... I love them~<3
