UNEARTHED - AtlantisHello Groupies! It's that time where we show you true and interesting information based upon the places, artifacts, culture and mythology of Lara's travels. This time, we're bringing you the speculations and history of the island of Atlas, or better known as Atlantis. There are many ideas and theories of the location of the lost empire. Today, we will primarily focus on the most common and most plausible location and version which is believed to of been in the Atlantic Ocean between what is South America and Africa today, just south of of Iceland.UNEARTHED - Atlantis1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The origins of the speculation of the Atlantean civilization was truly started from Greek philosopher and mathematician, Plato's dialogue Timaeus and Critias, written in 360 B.C. where he wrote:
"For it is related in our records how once upon a time your State stayed the course of a mighty host, which, starting from a distant point in the Atlantic ocean, was insolently advancing to attack the whole of Europe, an

Deceptive Deviants.If you don't stand for something, you will fall for anything.Deceptive Deviants.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is a journal I've been meaning to write for a while but I don't know where to begin.
I'm going to list some scenarios that have bothered me and afterwards give a short comment.
Just to be clear:
- This concerns traditional art only.
- I don't disapprove or dislike all of these examples but I want all media and alterations be listed in the artist's notes.
- This is just my pet peeves.
- there are many deviants that I like that use effects.
- I'm not an art-nazi, this is for those who pretend to be something they're not.
ONE LAST UPDATE:
- This does not include correcting scanning and photography quality loss - I have no problem with that.
1. Sepia color overlay.
There are many deviants that change the color of their graphite drawings from black & white to a faded brown in Photoshop. Fundamentally I don't have a problem with that but it should be listed in the media since
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 reality3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Illustration by Pencil-Stencil and Inna-Vjuzhanina
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
