Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `RahllRemember the control room scenes of The Hunger Games? Did you know the concept work for that control room and the 3D displays was done by our very own Reid Southen (Rahll)?Hunger Games Control Room Concept Design by `Rahll3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Reid is a senior member on deviantART who has been on the site for six years. Reid is also doing concept work for Jupiter Ascending, an upcoming 2014 sci-fi film.
He had posted a journal about his work on the Hunger Games back in February, but wasn't able to upload his work right away. He posted this deviation to his deviantART gallery yesterday:
"I had the pleasure of doing a lot of design work on the control room in the movie, from the interfaces to the holograms and such. Hybride in Montreal did a great job bringing it all to life, and it was fun seeing their tests and the f
A Brief Discussion About Tonal ContrastTraditional Art WeekA Brief Discussion About Tonal Contrast6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
In last Traditional Week, we talked about the elements which if you ignore can destroy your painting and all your hardwork.
What Ruins A Painting?
Contrast and Values were one main element that either can make your works fruitful or ruin it. It needs to be discussed more broadly as a lot of new artists have trouble to establish a good tonal contrast. Result? Despite their brilliant artistic skills, the picture does not pop up! It looks dull, muted. That is not the fault of the drawing or skills, it's the lack of observation and understanding lights.
Contrast is the difference between two values which helps you to dis

PE: Literature Basics SettingsLiterature Basics WeekPE: Literature Basics Settings1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
Along with characters and plot, setting is one of the most important choices we make when we write. In the most basic terms, setting is where your literary work takes place. It's up to you, as the author, to use it and mold it to fit the needs of your writing, make it more than just a backdrop to your prose or poetry.
A good setting becomes like a character itself. It can be express moods, offer comfort or hindrance. The setting can even be the main antagonist - consider the Overlook Hotel in Stephen King's The Shining, or the island in the 2000 Tom Hanks' film, Cast Away. In both of these examples, the protagonist(s) have to survive their surroundings, one mundane, the other ... less so.
Make Your Setting Work For You
Everything in your written work must be chosen for maximum effect. When deciding on your setting, decide what you want to accomplish with it. Here are some possibilities.
Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!Years and years ago, at the beginning of my illustration career, a veteran illustrator got mad at me, and at a number of my colleagues, for charging too little. We all protested loudly. "But, dude," we said, "we are not veterans like you, with years of experience and stunning portfolios to back us up. We are newbies, and we need to eat, too, so we'll take what we can get. We're not in direct competition with you, so why do you care?" Then, we added, with great smugness, "Oh, and our rates are the current industry standard, so pthbbbbbt!"Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Except more than a decade's gone by, and I see that my colleagues and I are now veterans, with our own pretty portfolios and lengthy CVs. We have become the indignant illustrator's direct competitors, and we're not earning that much more than we were at the start of our careers. We're certainly not getting what he did, at the height of his. And we did this to ourselves. Oh, sure, we're not solely re

Collection: MushroomsCollection: Mushrooms9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
No other plant looks, feels or tastes like a mushroom. They can bloom after a rainstorm and fill up a meadow in the woods that was empty the day before. They are a delight in the eye of the epicurean, but though tiny and fragile, strike terror in the hearts of non–woodsmen like me. Identified properly, they are a marvelous salad. Misidentified, they can mean sudden death. Such tiny, pretty forest dwellers, but with power over even a starving man. Such is a mushroom.
“I am… a mushroom; On whom the dew of heaven drops now and then.”
– John Ford
RAINMETER WORKSHOPMaking a Weather Skin or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love WebparserRAINMETER WORKSHOP5 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a simple weather skin that shows the current weather using MSN Weather. The other major site used is Yahoo Weather. The measures are from Poiru's upcoming Gnometer suite.
-Same old, same old
-The first three variables are used to set your location, hi or lo temperature, and what units the temperature is to be displayed in. weather.LH-valid values for this are Hi or Lo. WeatherCode is the most important variables. It is used to find your location. Go to MSN Weather, and set your location. Look for the little RSS icon on the right. The RSS url will have your WeatherCode in it. The url will look like hxxp://weather.msn.com/RSS.aspx?wealocations=wc:#WeatherCode#&weadegreetype=#TemperatureUnit#. Your WeatherCode is the string between #WeatherCode#. Lastly, TemperatureUnit displays the temperature in Fahrenheit or Celcius; valid values are C or F.
My Deviantart StoryAnd using the first journal skin I ever made no less :,PMy Deviantart Story1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Welp, my journey on this site started out WAAAY back when in 08' (which feels like so long ago and yet so little at the same time a;lksdfmsd)
I started out with an account that had no numbers or piranhas in its name to speak of, and only a tiny number of deviations to its name. (I never deactivated it either, if anyone wants to poke at the barren wasteland that it is for posterity xD :iconarogence
On that account I would run into many artists that would be HUGE inspirations to me, and some of them I've formed friendships I never would've imagined having :,D The work that they did back then (and still do now) has played a big part of influencing where I'm at today with what I want to do as an artist, and really in my life in general.
If not for deviantart I would've never met one of my closest friend's imaginable, :iconMischiefLily:, we've been through a TON of stuff over the years, and she means the absolute world to me. Both o

Last year (and the year before) I've been at the Spiel fair in Essen and of course there's always the Comic Action as well. I've been there... 7 (?) years ago as an artist myself and know the visitors and the "regulars". Tillmann might be somebody most people might know.He's a legend.
Anyways. What really surprised me was the fact that so many artists prefered to hide awkwardly behind some books or not even trying to make eye contact. It felt a bit like everybody coming too close to their table might bite. Or worse: buy something.
Some people did (more than) fine but at least 75% of the artists made the whole artist row pretty unappealing.
- smile and make friendly!) eye contact with people strolling by
I'd like to stamp that as a mantra into your brain. You are attending the fair to SELL something so invite the people to chat a bit, come closer

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

“When I left high school, I had all my plans to go to college, but I had no money. And I decided then, the best thing for me to do is not worry about getting money to go to college — I will educate myself. I walked down the street, I walked into a library, I would go to the library three days a week for ten years and I would educate myself. It’s all FREE, that’s the great thing about libraries! Most of you can afford to go to college, but if you wanna educate yourself completely, go to the library and educate yourself. When I was 28 years old, I graduated from Library.”
— Ray Bradbury
