StarCraft II is the hot tournament videogame that just may breakthrough as the harbinger of the esports phenomenon and one of the great cultural game-changers of all time.
Midnight in Anaheim. Caffeinated casters boom rapid fire commentary rattling the packed hall. Elite Starcraft players from around the globe execute complex strats that would have made Rommel the Desert Fox himself proud. 20,000 are in attendance, on the edge of their seats, and cheering as loudly as any soccer match as they watch the 30-foot screens hanging from the rafters. Another four and a half million are watching the streams live. The feeling is that of an NCAA Final Four game, set in a European soccer stadium, somehow shoehorned into a casino showroom in Las Vegas. It’s all of the skill, the fan devotion and the spectacle anyone could pos

-Mr. Bilbo, where are you off to?
-I'm going on an adventure!
The very recent release of The Desolation of Smaug trailer quite inspired this contest's theme. It's just six months to go! Your task in this contest is not simply to draw a character or place from the Middle-earth, that would be just another boring Tolkien competition, wouldn't it?
Fire. Mountain(s). Ruins. Shadow. Flower. Treasure. Couple. Smoke. Lights.
9 words for one quest! Your entry must include at least 3 of these things (and you should mention the ones you've picked in your deviation's description). It must refer to something that actually happened in the Middle-earth or other realms from its dimention described by Tolkien. Entries showing nothing but a character posing like a statue or copied screenshots from the movies won't be accepted, this is
Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural WorldEarth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural World4 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Since human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many
only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to
look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest
civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest –
until all those trees were needed to create the naval armadas of dueling empires. Only the
Earth’s natural forces, like earthquakes, have been more destructive and wasteful than humanity.
“The Romantics” were a movement of poets, painters, philosophers and others who launched
the first Great Dissent against the idea of our Earth as being only a resource to be used up.
They sensed the destruction of the
I really do love you - England x Reader You and Arthur were best friends and you two were countries, and you two always yell at America when he does something wrong, but when you two hit America on the back of his head. You two would touch hands, and you two would blush and pull your hands away. One day after the meeting you were walking home when you heard a voice, "Hey (name) can I come to your house?" said a British voice. You turned around only to see Arthur, "Oh! Hi Arthur. And you can come to my house." You answered, "Well thank you love." 'Did he just say 'love' to me!?' Your mind blush like crazy, but you didn't want Arthur to see. So you two walked down to your house. *at your house* You told Arthur that you were going to get something from your room. Arthur was scared that he was going to tell you that he loved you so much. And you were going to do the same thing by giving Arthur a gift, but he got you something better then a gift.

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

I don't know you, but I watch a lot of awesome people. Some of them are insanely talented artists whose artworks can leave you breathless. Others are incredibly friendly and always have something nice to say. Others are worth watching for other reasons.
The point is that I so wish a lot of you watched them just for being amazing.
With that in mind today I start with these feature articles that, (unlike others which only contain a bunch of thumbnails) will give you a good reason why you should add the featured artist to your watchlist.
As mentioned, the reasons why I select them to be featured will be diverse; some of them will be what I consider underappreciated, some of them will be already "famous", others will be here for being a great inspiration community-wise, etc.
And so, to open these articles, I decided to feature a great friend of mine for some year

RevengeA pirate with a grudge can make a terrible enemy. Captain Carriedo finds this out when Captain Kirkland captures him and humiliates him in an obscene way. Warning!!! OMORASHI don't like, don't read!!!Revenge2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Captain Antonio Fernandez Carriedo awoke to the familiar swaying motion of a ship at sea. Immediately, he noticed that something was not right. His eyes shot open, only to be met by impossible darkness. He tried to move, only to tug helplessly at the ropes that held his arms and legs still. The poor man broke out in a panicked sweat, he fought his restraints in frantic tugs.
"I see you're finally awake. I was beginning to think I'd hit you much too hard Anthony."
The Spanish man froze, heart jumping to his throat. Icy cold fingers slid down his temples and removed the thick blindfold. It didn't take the green eyed man long to adjust to the dimly lit room. He immediately recognized it as a cabin. A prisoner's cabin, if he wasn't mistaken. By dim candle light he look
Developing Artists FAQHey everyone, just wanted to make a new journal about some stuff that's goin on in my head, and to those who care feel free to read.Developing Artists FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I've just graduated with a BA in the Arts (WOW SOOOOO HARDCORE) in late April. Aside from handling small freelance and commission stuff between my spare time, I also started working full time at a local mobile game studio as a concept artist and animator.
Now thinking back on my journey so far, I've met a lot of obstacles and obviously overcame many of them, and the ones I didn't overcome I keep on trying. For the longest time, while being in this online art community filled with countless talents of various degrees, I have sought knowledge amongst the community here, and in turn people have also came asking for knowledge in return. While I specialize in the entertainment industry as a visual production and sometimes pre-production artist, there have been many learning curves that I had to tackle by myself, because lets face it, if school wa

AND THE WINNERS ARE....
IN THE JUDGING SECTION:
The judges fell head over heels in love with this lovely imagining of the would-be "Fool's Errand"
that would have been made in the 2000s. All the characters designs, back-story and thought
behind it made us VERY happy! Amazing work!
Another movie that would have been made in the 2000s! This one has a very Disney design
and the fun feel of the early 2000s Disney movies
like The Emperor's New Groove. Wonderful work!
We loved the representation for this on-going in and out of production movie,
Don Quixote. The characters are obviously very different from each other and
compliment each other very well! The sun and windmill silhouette pay great homage to the original story.

Technomancer Contest! Over!Time to host my first contest of the 2013 year! Hopefully it will be the first of many. Enter this contest for your chance to win cash prizes (or points equivalent).Technomancer Contest! Over!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
For this contest I want you to draw a technomancer. It can be a completely new character, or you can turn one of your current characters into one. It can be any race (human, elf, alien, panda, so on and so forth) from any time period (future, present, past, steampunk...). I'm leaving this fairly open to interpretation because I want to see some crazy wiz-biz!
Do not know what a technomancer is? Well as a necromancer controls the dead, or a cryomancer controls ice, technomancers control technology. For a better idea check out here ->http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technomancy. As I said already this is fairly open to interpretation and will accept any form of technomancy as described in that wiki article.
- Entry must include at least one character being a technomancer

Lost in time?What is the value of memory in human culture?Lost in time?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
More specifically, what role should remembering-and forgetting-play in our daily lives? These are the central questions that we addresses in this life. But we have too much information.
For centuries remembering was considered essential not only to the perpetuation of society but to the maintenance of individual existence. Survival often depended on the memory of how to perform specific tasks, what values to honor, and what personal or collective identity to assume. Remembering, in short, put one in touch with the things that mattered, engendering wholeness and wisdom. Forgetting, on the other hand, led to emptiness, ignorance, and death.
With the advent of modernity, however, doubts about the value of memory grew while the negative implications of forgetting were re-evaluated. In many quarters, forgetting came to be defended for the way it frees us from the past, opening the door to new perceptions, new possibilities, and new beginni
Illustration and Emotion according to Petar...In my never-ending crusade to prove to Deviantart users that 99% of them are illustrators and that it's a legitimate form of art, I thought I would share this cool article. The blog Muddy Colors is an excellent resource for any illustrator, professional or aspiring or hobbyist, and this is a particularly insightful entry from one of my favourite illustrators, Petar Meseldzija on the topic of making emotionally charged work. Scroll down to the bottom of the entry and this is part I of II so stay posted!Illustration and Emotion according to Petar...4 years ago in Personal More Like This
My own commentary as it relates to deviantart: We can get a little short-sighted here. I've been thinking a lot about this recently because I've been looking at some of those "draw this again!" memes and, while it's really inspiring to see so much improvement in technique, there are very few entries which change anything about the drawing (the pose, the scenario, the background, the emotio

I've known Fernosaur for a few years by now. Despite what you can see in his profile saying he has been a deviant for barely a few months, he actually has been here for over 7 years with his previous account, Penril
During all these years I've seen his art evolve, acquiring great quality, comparable with professionals in the digital illustration industry. Even so, his friendly and sometimes even silly approach to his followers is always evident and its something that hasn't changed; joking, teasing and flirting... he's a big goof.
His style is very recognizable without being monotone or boring. Even with the great quality of his work, it surprises me the very few attention it receives; this feature is intended to contribute to change that.
