Was 1979 the most glorious year in world history?
I will give you three compelling arguments for why the answer is yes. For starters, it inspired the best pop–rock song about coming of age ever recorded: The Smashing Pumpkins’s 1979. Second, it is the year that gave us two groundbreaking developments in sci–fi filmmaking: Ridley Scott’

Realm-of-Fantasy is proud to present our So You think you can Design an Logo? Contest.
With all the excitement about logos in deviantART lately,
we figured what better time than now to have the community design one.
So you think you can design a Logo? You think you've got what it takes?
Ok, well here's your chance to prove it.
RoF is growing larger everyday, and we have become the Largest Fantasy and Sci-fi Art Gallery on deviantART.
We feel it is time to re-brand to properly reflect the size, depth and genre of our group.
We thought what better way to celebrate this than to ask you to be apart of this, and have the redesign as a contest theme.
Your Fantasy artwork has inspired so many people through the years, and we would be honored if it was your artwork that defined us.

Valentine's day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than participate in this brand new

Book called Find It in Everything — this contest challenges you to look beyond the obvious and find abstract heart shapes in everyday and ordinary things.

I found a heart at the beginning of the year whilst browsing shop aisles for a mirror. It had an imperfection, a tiny little heart on the bottom corner, but I fell in love with it anyway. I decided to take the collage approach and use two images to showcase where and how I found my “heart.” You can do exactly the same! Or you can have a singular image that shows a heart... whatev

To Battle The Horde
“What do we die for, if not family, friends and freedom? We have fled from a crude reality, yet fate and war chase us, shake us like winter winds bully a wooden house. So let us fight evil with bravery, oblivion with willpower, doom to our very last breath: we have risen together, and together we fall. Where but here, at the last outpost of our kingdom, can we defeat the horde?”

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions
Tutorials and techniquesQuite a lot of people keep asking me for tutorials and to be honest I see no point in creating yet another strip on how to paint skin/clothes/light/carrots/whatever. There are so many of them out there that it would be simply a waste of time to sit and basically copy what's already been told.Tutorials and techniques4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Instead, I've decided to make a compilation of different tutorials and charts that I personally use to learn how to paint.
The most important thing you need to learn even before starting to read a tutorial is that all walk-throughs are meant for you to understand how things work. My point is that after reading and later practicing a tutorial called 'how to paint a glass duck' you should be able to paint not only a glass duck but also anything else made of glass. You should concentrate on understanding the rules and patterns instead of trying to copy what you see on the image. Otherwise you'll end up knowing how to paint only a few things from only one perspective and one lightning pattern.

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi

A question I get a lot.I get this question a lot. ( six times in the past two days)A question I get a lot.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
How can I draw like you?
This is my point of you on this question.
Once again.. this is just MY opinion, and not everybody will agree with it.. but.. here it is
I'd probably not recommend you try to emulate my style or my way or working.
What I would recommend though is that you try to go outside and sketch, sketch people in the street, people walking, sitting, getting up, taking off their clothes or putting them back on, people hugging, people fighting, people in conversation in a group, people on the bus, swimming, dancing, eating, ( lot's of eating as it is pretty hard to convey exactly the feeling of eating), sleeping, people thinking... If you want to tell stories, most of your images should have people thinking.. that's what is going to make your images come alive.
Use a tablet if you have one, a sharpie, a pastel, a rock dipped in ink..anything that can make a mark.
The tool is cool, but secondary.. first.. you n

I love cosplay and I have no plan on stopping but I began to doubt these " Fan pages"
I've made mistakes, I've grown and will continue to learn. I've matured and come to realize that I want this to be my beloved hobby and not my job. I don't want the attention I thought I once wanted. I want to make these costumes and bring a little life to them for my own reasons and share them with people that want to see them instead of forcing my updates onto everyones feeds.
I got back into cosplay in 2011. Everything was new to me again. I didn't have parents around telling me I couldn't wear this or dress up as that and I suppose I just wanted to push my own limits. I found people enjoyed my costumes more when there was less of the actual costume, it felt nice to have people recognize what I was wearing (or wasn't haha). It made me feel a
Tutorial Tuesday: PosesDrawing poses sometimes is a very difficult thing to do. Sure, drawing someone standing straight up and down perfectly lined up with the "camera" isn't that tough. But what if we wanted to turn them, or put them in a dynamic pose? How the crap do we do that?Tutorial Tuesday: Poses2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well first things first, you need to know how the human body works. So if your reading this and you don't have any concept of human proportions, or how the body moves, then that's the first thing you need to do. Go look at people. Draw real life people, not manga, or comic book people as they're exaggerated. Draw real life people so you know what comic and manga artists are exaggerating. Figure out how their body works and moves. That's going to make the next part make alot easier.
Okay. So now we have basic understanding of human proportions, and how the human body moves. How the hell do we draw them in a specific pose? Well it's simple my friends. The key to drawing human poses is the stick figure!

5 Year Plan*Because I'll be teaching in about a week at SCAD, I've been thinking a lot about what to tell the students. And I wrote it out so that I could solidify it in my head. This stuff is for younger artists mostly, so feel free to skip.5 Year Plan3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I spend time with another comic artist, sometimes I'll ask, "What's your 5 year plan?" In other words, what steps is he taking in order to gain control over his career in order to move up the ladder? Usually I don't get much of an answer.
The reason I think many comic artists aren't forward-thinking has to do with the way our industry is set up. Whether by conscious design or through the neglect of its participants, younger freelancers get into a habit of complacency while hoping for a chance to suckle from the teet of a major publisher. Waiting around for a career doesn't promote the idea of freelancers taking active control of their OWN careers.
If I had to sum up the 5 Year Plan
