A TRIBUTE TO REALISMA TRIBUTE TO REALISM11 months ago in Personal More Like This
-Why don't you just take a photo and a bunch of other stupid yet justified questions-
After years of being bothered by the same question , I have finally decided to write down my feelings and thoughts about this issue. And I think the timing is perfect considering I've somehow reached a stage of finding satisfaction in my own work; which will hopefully result in this journal being informative, interesting, maybe even educational, but above all stop people from being prejudice. If I had written it earlier it probably would have resulted in ranting and raging, at least to some degree.
I hope you will enjoy this read, but unless you think you can relate or learn more about some things, stop reading because this is going to be LONG
Let me start by asking you - what about your own work makes you feel like an artist? What makes any of us 'artists'? Many people imagine artists to be somewhat like mad scientists, but the

stevo505: Will we ever see some behind the scenes content, such as motion-capture and voice-recording sessions?
Karl: Yes, we intend to show lots of behind the scenes content, but are working to ensure that it isn’t delivered in the same old vein as developer diaries. We’re going to do something very special in not-so-distant future, although I don’t want to give it away right now.
aragorn2: The game will have any stealth system or it will be more action style?
Karl: We’re working very hard to ensure our combat system has a variety of different play

Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and realityReboot of Tomb Raider franchise was probably the most heatedly discussed topic over the last 4 years. We didn’t know if it would become a success or yet another fail, but there was one thing that was clear as a day – fandom split in two. One group supported and firmly believed in the reboot. The other group hated and resented the idea of it claiming that Lara Croft is dead for them now.Tomb Raider 2013: expectations and reality1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Now the game is out. It IS a success. Franchise that was on a razor edge before was saved. But there is one question that remained unanswered – did people who resented reboot change their mind or they just receded in the dark mourning over the character that is dead for them now.
Tomb Raider Empire offers you, dear loyal raiders, a little quiz that will help to make things clear. It will be really interesting for us to hear your answers on the given questions and we are sure it will be inter
The second secret unlocked!Dear raiders, a month ago as a present to Lara’s BD, we created the Treasure Vault project and revealed the first secret we had prepared for you. The time to unlock the second one has finally come and we are happy to present you an exclusive collection of videos and commercials Lara appeared in. We’ve collected everything we managed to find and it turned out to be quite an impressive pile of videos so we divided it into three thematic sections which we will reveal one by one. So enjoy part one – Commercials. Two others are soon to follow!The second secret unlocked!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

New TR games ANNOUNCED + TRAILERS and CONCEPT ARTExciting news, raiders!New TR games ANNOUNCED + TRAILERS and CONCEPT ART1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Earlier today we posted a blog about two possible Tomb Raider games and they both were just officially confirmed!
Rise of the Tomb Raider
Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio, today announced its latest title in the critically acclaimed and award-winning Tomb Raider series, Rise of the Tomb Raider . The game will redefine survival action in Holiday 2015.
In her first adventure, Lara Croft was forged into a true survivor, but she glimpsed a deeper, secret world. In the next chapter of her journey, Lara must use her survival skills and wits, learn to trust new friends, and ultimately accept her destiny as the Tomb Raider.
“With the power of the new generation, and our proprietary Foundation engine, our high octane action moments will be even more epic. Multiple locations around the world will be filled with exploration spaces that are some of the most beautifully hostile places on earth and over three times larger than we could

What do you think? Looks gorgeous to me and that parachute part was especially breathtaking. That is definitely something we haven’t tried before and that is gonna be soooo much fun.
And that’s not all as for the amazing videos. Did you get excited over the scene of Lara’s escape from the prisoners’ camp and her first kill? Well now you can see the full scene from the moment of Lara being captured up to the final gun shot. Enjoy:

You now have the option to include/exclude your journal from the Journal Portal, and from your Journal Tab's new "Featured" section.
The Journal Portal in the footer of deviantART now pulls from the Journals category but excludes all "Personal" posts. This means, you must categorize your Journal on submission for it to even qualify to appear in the footer of dA. This has substantially increased the quality of posts that appear there.

Dear Raiders, we’re thrilled to announce that after long weeks of preparations we are finally ready to launch

And do you know how those were created? All these masterpieces used to be very rough sketches once, like this:

Sorry to bother you...Hello all,Sorry to bother you...5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I thought I'd take a moment today to write a journal which is probably long overdue. I believe there is a common misconception floating around that CVs are so busy, that when you send us DD Suggestions, or other messages, you are being a bother.
Quite regularly the DD Suggestions I receive start with something along the lines of "I am sorry to bother you..." or "I know you are busy but.."
I'd like to assure you all that no suggestions you send, or any other type of contact made with me (or any other CV for that matter) is something to feel sorry or bad about (unless you are legitimately harassing us or something).
I've often heard community members talk about how many notes CVs get daily (often this number appears to be near 100) and I feel the need to say that this is very far from the truth. On average I receive maybe 5 notes a day. On a slow day I may not get any at all and on a busy day I may get up to 10. While I can not speak
Attention NeededDD-Catalogue needs a higher folder limit!Attention Needed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Currently deviantART imposes a limit on the number of folders/subfolders allowed in all group galleries.
Unfortunately, this means DD-Catalogue can't keep up with the number of new folders created in the main dA gallery.
We feel, as a paying supergroup, this limit should be raised.
Add this journal to your favourites to show your support against the current limit!

no talentno talent1 year ago in Personal More Like This
this is my final say in the argument against natural born talent vs skill. we all start out by drawing scribbles that slightly resemble things. i was about 3 yrs old here., and had probably already been drawing for some time since i was brought up in a family of artists. drawing only gives back with the time we give to it, and it takes a lot of patience, more needed in the beginning, and a lot of determination to keep at it even though we are continually frustrated.
hope this inspires some of you to keep going, or some of you to start, it will be even better if more of you, my dA friends, stop making excuses saying you werent born with the ability to make your dreams come true. the only thing holding you back is yourself. drawing is but a skill which we learn through lots of practice, determination, observation and patience. if you also have the undenied passion for it, you may see yourself getting further than others.
it also helps if you're able to be ho

The challenge ends in around 10 hours
Due to the big positive feedback by over 80 artists among you who showed their interest to participate in an art contest where the Challenge is to re-draw an around 2 year old deviation, this will be done.
The deviation has to be 20-28 months old ( June 2011-January 2012) and contest entries have to use the Draw This Again Meme of course!
The contest starts right now and will endure for 6 weeks which means it ends on Friday the 1st November 12PM
Allowed are all kinds of deviations, if drew a small dog, or a video game character or a nude woman, or original characters or a comic etc. it is all allowed as long as the image is around 2 years old.
Recent draw this again meme deviations can NOT be used, they have to be done for this contest.
There will be a public poll to determine 5 winners, i will also geta jury of 3-5 artists together who would jude the re-drawings in addition to the public poll.
This is meant as a challen

every month i will open a suggestions thread for artists you think are good and should get more attention but really dont get the views ...and trust me, i have seen artists whose skills i can only envy having far less views ....faaaaaarrr less than me
even though they are actually superior to me in many aspects.
so this is the idea.
every month i will post a suggestions for a feature journal
you post suggestions of artists you think should be featured
generally we are looking for people under 500k views but it is not a rule
from the suggestions i will choose 5 most suggested and feature them for a week.
we will be doing this every month
in this we all win.. as i too will find more people to follow XD
so roll out the suggestions!
this gonna get good!
ps NOT limited to comic artists!
pps....well f%&k! this escalated quickly XD
might have to rethink the amount of people featured per journal.... maybe 10, cant overdo it a
Getting the Most out of dA: GroupsGroups are a platform on deviantART which allow you to share your art - what it is primarily used for. Immediately, once your art is accepted into the Gallery, your art is sent to the message centres of many members of that particular group, gaining you instant and wider exposure.
