Royal Families Story Contest: Deadline ExtendedIn June 2012, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Diamond Jubilee, along with many of her subjects. Some looked upon the event with disdain, while others treated it with complete indifference. Kings and queens have existed in this world for centuries, sometimes loved, sometimes hated, often controversial but always fascinating.Royal Families Story Contest: Deadline Extended1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The stories of royal families - whether real, fictional or a mix of the two - are enduring and plentiful. Think of Henry VIII and his six wives; the mystery of the Russian Princess Anastasia; the legends of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table; the princes and princesses battling evil queens in fairytales and folklore; the Disney Princesses carrying you through an hour and a half of sheer magic...
Tales of royalty, old and new, are still told to this day, and that is what I am asking you to do for this contest: tell me a story about a royal family.
Below you will find what I believe to be a comprehensive list of rules and guidelines. I have tried to anti

Escaflowne is my top 1 favourite series since 1997, but I'm extremely lazy about finding new info or reading about lore. But that's the same for all the fandoms I've joined in my life. Well, almost all (I actually read a lot about political and history context in Rurouni Kenshin in 1998~). This week I learnt about some of the lore and more things about the manga.
I have some amazing new links thanks to :iconsmcandy: and :iconrad1986: that I want to share!

Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural WorldSince 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.Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural World2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he dreams up fresh narratives and new characters with fellow Story Artists and Disney directors.
But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations
