1 year of deviousnessOne year. Times really running I'd say. Last year on August 13 I joined deviantART. With no expectations just curious where I would find my place among all those great artists out there. Since then so much changed. I learned A LOT from the community. I found new beading techniques I did not even have heard of till then, I found a massive amount of inpirations and I started drawing digitally because I adore a whole lot of artists that are already masters in this discipline and inspire me to keep improving, to keep trying out new things and not to give up when things won't work like I expected them to do. The last part mostly goes to your account my dear watchers. I want to thank you for being among my 124 watchers and among 5,437 pageviews in one single year. Most of all I want to thank my active watchers such as !Clock-Inu or ~MusicAndArtItsMyLife. They are my two really ACTIVE watchers I'd say, those who also take an interest in me and my art or at least they show me. I do not1 year of deviousness9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Place: City-state of Greater Gibraltar
The new millennium has arrived, and the celebrations have been euphoric. The Gibraltar Dam has been in operation since 1951, and the others (the Tunis Dam, Sicitaly Dam, Dardanelles Dam, Alexandria Dam, Suez Dam, Congo Dam, the three along the Chad River (overflow line) and the Ubangi Dam) have just been completed. The new Chad Sea and Congo lake, have been desalinized and are now being used to irrigate the newly named 'Saharan Breadbasket' and the thousands of square miles of crops and farms that have now sprung up all across it. The salt taken from the water was then shipped to the drained Lake Rudolf and then covered over with several hundred feet of sand and soil too keep it from causing local environmental hazards. The Congo Rainforest is spread out over a wider area and done so too preserve the local plant and wildlife as the basin was flooded too make the Congo Lake. The Mediterranean grows increasingly warm overtime as

OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

THE NEXT THREE YEARS OF MY LIFE
I had received a job offer at Microsoft. I guess this could have been one of my first 'big time' jobs, so I was a little ecstatic. It felt like a slow build to get to this point, after numerous indie games and under the table freelance jobs, but finally it had come.
I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I

The trenches ignite in a ghastly chorus of napalm, the sibling fingers of blazing death extend skyward as if reaching vengefully towards an ambivalent god. All around me, my ears are stung by the tormented and panicked screams of soldiers, their studious diction long-since degraded into a primal ensemble of war cries and gritted exclamations for blood. It is absolute bedlam, the rhythmic breaks between bursts of machine gun fire descend with deafening trepidation like melancholy angels, only to be summoned away forcibly by another crack of the gun's bellowing wrath. Swarms of lead bees zip past my head, so much that they are ignored, if one hits me it hits me, I can't stop it. The bunker is just yards away as myself and my platoon make a furious dash for that protective maw.

"Never Be Ashamed"
I couldn't help myself. The moment I saw a name placard for "Steven Blum" my nostalgia and long-standing love of all things LucasArts Adventure Games flung my body into auto-pilot and directed me to that booth. In front of him were posters and lithographs of various characters from recent anime recently localized into English, but I inadvertently dumped his mind back into the 90's when I lost all decorum and totally fangasm'd over his role voicing Ludger Brink in The Dig.
"Wow," Steven reeled at my impulsive outburst. "That was...so long ago."
It was spring 2010, just one week before my transfer to the biggest AAA project in our publisher's history. I was at the Wizard World comic convention in Anaheim California. I knew there was going to be celebrity, but n
A Transmission from Alpha Sierra (with links)Billy looked out the view port of the Valcore transit shuttle as it approached Starbase Equador and entered into a docking protocol. It was several kilometers long, and a dozen or so other ships could be seen nearby. It was the main commercial hub of the Kanangar Sector, and a key installation for the TriGalactic Federation in this area.

The shuttle entered through an entrance below a large construction module to the left, and landed within one of several docking bays within the enclosure. Billy and the other passengers around him had built up a certain kind of restlessness that comes with working long hours on a remote mining colony, and they were all eager to catch up on some rest and relaxation. Starbase Equador had ten thousand inhabitants: military, beurocracy, corporate, contractors, as well as migrant labor and a number of unemployed. It w

This story is true.
While I exaggerate some of the events in this story, and will not name certain specifics out of the interest of continued employment, everything in this story is true.
It is also a very long story. The story of 2011. The story of the year I spent going through unemployment, internships, freelancing, temp work, and reconstructing my own life from the ground up. It's about coming to the realization of my pride being my downfall, how much I thought I deceived myself into thinking I was any good at anything, how little I truly knew about myself, and of course, the ways in which I rectified it all...a little bit.
It's a story that continues as I still live on into the next day, and the day afterward, as the transition isn't anywhere near a heroic conclusion. But such is a matter of life; I am on this hero's journey of mine until the day I kick it. Perpetual change.
This is also a story I've
