Now I made Mirkwood elves! Legolas, Thranduil, Oropher!
Such a random title - it's been a while since my previous entry.
I'm alive - so far - and I'm pretty sure i'm gonna die by the end of this month because of midterms Oh kill joy.
Anyways, guess what, I made my very first plz accounts!
They're part of my icon family (http://kittykatkanie.deviantart.com/journal/Noldorin-Icon-Family-Updated-10-5-218743173), but since they're not really related by blood (well, maybe they are but Tolkien never really specified it) to the actual family, I made plz accounts for them

"NEVER SEEN BEFORE" - big Tolkien themed contest
Details in MirachRavaia's own words:
I recently got a comment on my art which made me realize that there are many scenes and characters in Tolkien's book which almost never get illustrated, while you can find hundreds of illustrations for others. Just a few examples would be
- the events during the Scouring of the Shire
- the Ringbearers arriving and living in Valinor
- Galadriel living in Eregion or passing through Moria to Lórien
- Pippin exploring Minas Tirith with Bergil
- the "lesser known" kings of Gondor and Númenor and Chieftains of Dúnedain
- Túrin attacking Glaurung in front of Nargothrond's gates BEFORE the dragon's look paralyzed him
For this contest, you need to find one that you have NEVER seen illustrated before. I won't give you more examples so you can think of your own, but feel free

Summer is - sadly - over and it's time to go back to school for some, to university (for me and for the first time, actually) and to work for others. So, whatever you're going to do... good luck!
I hope these wonderful photos can help you relax in this stressful time of the year. Enjoy.

Fanart Incentive Scheme!Hey guys.Fanart Incentive Scheme!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feature a lot of EBF fanart on the Facebook page and on my website, and have decided to start giving free Steam copies of EBF4 to anyone who gets featured.
I think I'm also going to retroactively award some copies to people who have been featured in the past.
Here's the fanart I've featured on my website so far: http://kupogames.com/category/fanart/
Also, for anyone who's done fanart, you should go post it in Steam's community section for EBF4. It's kind of empty right now, even though a lot of fanart already exists for the game.

Just a matter in general. Including my rants - just because it's in my Japanese's nature to be picky about respect and manner and shat like that lol.
I wanted to express my opinions about it, so it's not something I expect people to agree.
(Though, if you are completely against it, I rather don't want to know about it. Please keep it to yourself.)
It came to my attention that some people think that if you give credits, you can take other artists' work and edit over it. (If you get a permission, that's totally great - but in most cases, people don't.)
When I mean "other people's work", I don't mean by screenshots from any "official works" that exists (like anime screenshots, comic pages, etc). I'm specifically pointing out works that are done by an individual (just like us).
It's really sad and annoying to see when you find someone using an illustration from random websites and drawing their stuff over... ruining the original wo

Contest: Crossovers! As kids, we often mashed our toys together, regardless of Copyright. Superman would take command of G.I. Joe to defeat the combined forces of Doctor Doom and the Decepticons, while Barbie took a break from her idealistic lifestyle to become a Pokemon master. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got recruited into Starfleet and taught Spock the wonders of pizza. (And from the furor arose Mister Rogers in a blood-stained sweater.)Contest: Crossovers!3 years ago in Official DeviantArt Contests More Like This

Hey guys, I just got back from an 11 day trip to Sweden.
It wasn't a particularly interesting trip; I didn't do much sightseeing or anything fancy. Just chilling out with student type people and experiencing some very different living conditions.
My brother's been studying in Luleň for the past year, and he'll be going home soon, so this was my last chance to visit. Most of the students were gone by the time I got there, but there was still a bunch of awesome people left. My brother's got a flat all to himself now, and lots of leftover gear (bikes, food etc) from the other students.
I already visited in January, so the journey there was pretty routine; Ryanair to Stockholm, and then got a sleeper train to Luleň. Went with a slightly more expensive cabin this time, and although it
The sudden realizationMy boyfriend and I watched a documentation about Indie gaming yesterday. Not that I'm so much into gaming, but I do enjoy an occasional documentary. And if there's one thing that I have in common with those Indie game makers is that we're both artists and we're both working on an own project, although that project is very different in nature. The movie followed a few of those indie game makers through the making and publishing of their projects.The sudden realization2 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of the people that were followed, was Phil Fish, the developer of a game called Fez.
While his game seemed to be pretty good looking (I'm not a gamer, so I've never played it), the drama around the making and the release of the game was what I remembered most. Threatening to kill a fellow co-worker and that kind of stuff. At the end of the movie, both I and m

The wolf is a common motif in the foundational mythologies and cosmologies of peoples
throughout Eurasia and North America (corresponding to the historical extent of the habitat of
the gray wolf). The obvious attribute of the wolf is its nature of a predator, and
correspondingly it is strongly associated with danger, destruction, making it the symbol of
the warrior on one hand, and that of the devil on the other. The wolf holds great importance
in the cultures and religions of the nomadic peoples, both of the Eurasian steppe and of the
North American Plains. In many cultures, the identification of the warrior wit
When Art becomes Pressure...I only learned about it yesterday that a young artist just recently committed suicide over what seemed to be about her art. I don't know all the details, nor did I know her in person, but what her boyfriend wrote on her Facebook page prompted me to write about the issue. I can't say, if her art was the main reason for her to come to the conclusion to end her own life, but it seemed to be one of the things she thought about a lot. Out of consideration I am not going to tell names, or how old she was, because it doesn't matter. A life was lost.When Art becomes Pressure...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
She loved to draw and constantly did strive to improve, which we all can relate to. She seemed eager to participate in conventions, having her own stall, and to participate in the online art community, and that's where I want to add a few things.
Just to be clear, I am not saying the following was the exact reason for her decision, but rather a piece, which could have come into play. Many little things are accumulating before the limit is
Event: ItaSaku Month 2012Hi Everyone,Event: ItaSaku Month 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
You might remember about a poll we created a few months ago that asked if you would be interested in an ItaSaku month. Well, there was an overwhelming vote of yes (which doesn't really surprise me--you're all such loyal ItaSaku fans ). We also asked what month you thought would be a good ItaSaku month, and the majority vote was December. Thus, it's time to celebrate a month of ItaSaku!
What is ItaSaku Month?
ItaSaku month is a month long event dedicated to celebrating the friendship and/or love of Itachi Uchiha and Sakura Haruno.
How do I celebrate ItaSaku month? [Bullet; Black][Bullet; Black][Bullet; Black]
You can celebrate ItaSaku month however you would like, but for each day of the month, there will be a theme that you can create work for. The goal is to create one piece per week for one of the themes
The Secret Drawing IngredientIf you're an artist of any kind it's extremely important to hone your craft and technical abilities. After all, the better you draw and the better you are at mastering the drawing tools you use - the easier it is to convey your unique message for public consumption.The Secret Drawing Ingredient2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But how important is technical ability, really? Obviously, it's very important. Understanding anatomy, light and shadow and perspective are key to solid drawing. It's important to always be improving in those departments. It's also very important to master the tools you use to draw with. Learning to render or color professionally can only increase your appeal to both fans and other professionals.
But what about developing artistic appeal on a much deeper level?
It's not just about finding a pleasing style. Anyone can do that with enough practice. You can always choose a popular artist and emulate his or her style. The blueprint is right there. But why d
