Morrowind FeatureMorrowind Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is my favourite game of all time, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been planning for awhile to put together a game-inspired feature; unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since most Morrowind-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Morrowind is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2002. The central plot concerns the deity Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses.
Lord Voryn Dagoth had been a good friend of Lord Indoril Nerevar, but they tu
Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

Guidelines to what you can do with my artworkAlright, so I think a few people are confused as to what I actually allow with my work, and what I don't so here goes:Guidelines to what you can do with my artwork6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Read it ALL please!
What I DO allow:
I do allow people to share it on places like Tumblr, Facebook, or even Pinterest -- places where 'sharing' is the main thing rather than claiming.
However, the watermarks and signatures must remain on the images. That means no editing them out or cropping them so they're not visible.
I allow people to reference my work as long as it's in private and they don't post it anywhere.
However, I would much prefer if people referenced stock photos of the real thing instead as my work isn't a great example of accurate anatomy. Sometimes close, but not accurate.
I allow people to who have commissioned me or those I have done gifts, art trades, or even requests for in the past to us
Relativity Contest - Great Prizes!Relativity Contest - Great Prizes!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Ravenswd and I are proud to announce our 2nd annual Relativity contest!
The theme this year (overwhelmingly selected by our Watchers) is:
Your Original Character (OC) as a Hero or Villain in the Relativity Universe
Since this is a Relativity contest, simply drawing a picture of your OC as a superhero will not count. You must incorporate something from Relativity into the piece. Either another character from the universe or something that is a direct and obvious reference to the world.
ANY of the Relativity characters can be used. That includes the characters in or out of costume. Supporting characters or villains may also be used.
A full list of characters, profile sheets, and references can be found in the RelativityComic Group here ---> http://relativitycomic.deviantart.com/gallery/
Your character can be, but doesn't have to be, a costumed hero or villain. Your OC could be a heroic cop on

I found out like on thee day they posted their 'upgraded logo' that they'd (likely) just stolen/copied the logo of another site
and it's like PAHAHAHA, really?
I know I should be mad or disappointed but... I just can't be. It's just fucking hysterical when you get down to it. An art site...supposedly centered around community and sharing art...steals a logo from another art site?
Although... I doesn't much surprise me since you know, despite all the utter bullshit they've had going on with art theft among their members and such, why wouldn't they gank another site's logo? I mean who needs copyright or reserved rights, right?
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh irony, you fickle fucker.
On a personal level I think the logo is rubbish. It's nothing but a 'z' with a line through it.
Is it a new minimalist phase or something?

Manavata means “humanity.” A social movement was born in India bearing that name, with “Humanity is our identity” as their guiding mantra. Like the many facets making up a sparkling diamond, here is a collection of photographs to remind us we are, together, one beautiful humanity.

A recent "conversation" has brought to my knowledge a group dedicated to "protecting" the character, Princess Celestia, who is from the show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. If you know me, you know that I LOVE the character of Princess Celestia and that I've been a spazztastic little defender of hers ever since I became a fan of the show (My friends, Jandrus13 and Dusty-san know VERY well how I've been about that). I don't remember if I've ever written Journals about how I feel about her, but I know I've ranted and lectured people a bunch in the past about my feelings toward Princess Celestia and putting up logic and a good defense in her behalf for her actions in the show.

This May, possibly June or July, if the project is fully funded, I will begin production on a short film and book entitled, Mother Bears.
To follow the project and receive live updates, check out the film's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MotherBearsTheFilm
What is this book and short film about?
Mother Bears will take you behind the scenes featuring Black Bears, their cubs, and the people who study and protect them in The Great Smoky Mountains National Park. You will witness intimate moments between the mothers and their cubs and see the threats that they face each day.
As you know, bears are very important to me, and the life of the bears are put into danger by humans every day. Humans that get way too close, whether unknowing about the risk, or just simply do not care. In a part of the film I will be recordin

AND in the process truly spell out my feelings about the recent Godzilla movie... and compare it to Godzilla 1998 while I'm at it.
I guess the best way to start this would be to sum up my feelings for the 2014 remake of Godzilla in one sentence...
"Like a Breath of Fresh Air."
Coming off the dying wake of Tri-Star's 1998 attempt, it was just nice to see that someone... somewhere... in jaded-ass Hollywood respected the fucking material. Was just nice to know, nice to see it given some measure of seriousness. And that's where the 1998 version STILL loses me to this day, despite the burning ire I had for it having mostly died down. Emmerich and Devlin's version just felt like it was 'too hip' to care, and it's main monster kinda symbolized that tho

How to Write a Query LetterPublishing WeekHow to Write a Query Letter2 months ago in Literature Features More Like This
A query is kind of what it sounds like -- you're ASKING an agent or publisher if they're interested in seeing your book. But a query is more than hey what's up I'm awesome my book is awesome look at it plz! You have to write a professional letter that will entice the person who will read it into writing back with a HECK YES SHOW ME YOUR BOOK! (Okay, they probably won't say it like that. But you get the gist.)
The first line in your query should be:
Dear Ms./Mr. AgentLastName OR Dear Ms/Mr. EditorLastName
This might sound obvious, but you never EVER want to address a query with Dear Sirs/Madams or To Whom it May Concern. You also don't want to address it to the publisher or the agency. You are writing a specific agent or a specific editor, whom you've taken the time to research. You know what this person likes and you think he or she will like your book. So address them personally.
The next lines should should look something like:
