Update 11 XII 2013 - there will be no Storm over Gondolin, unfortunately The Tolkien Estate has forbidden making it - message form the filmmakers published at the projects fanpage at Facebook:
We come to you today with some sad news. The Tolkien Estate, the legal body which manages the rights to Tolkien’s works, has asked
How to Suggest a Daily DeviationSo I've come across multiple polls asking, "Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?" Sadly the most frequently chosen option was, "I don't know how to go about it." Not yes, not no: the uncertainty of the process.How to Suggest a Daily Deviation3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I will make this as easy as possible.
1. Go here, and note one of the Community Volunteers in charge of the category of art you're suggesting. If you'd like you can also favorite this journal for reference.
The note should be as such:
:thumbxxxxxxx: (found to the right of the deviation, underneath the groups).
A reason why (is preferable but not necessary).
The deviant being suggested should not have had a Daily Deviation in the past 6 months (check this by going to the deviant's page and typing /dds after it) if they have none then you have no mat

@YukoRabbitJapanese artist YukoRabbit's beautiful artwork is both passionate and incredibly detailed. With strong lines, forced perspective, and captivating characters, it's hard not to look twice at each of her digital paintings. She's able to draw you into the intricate lives of her attractive adolescent muses with her intriguing concepts. With a strong sense of movement, her work seems to dance around the page entangling both the viewer and the subject.@YukoRabbit2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

schnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting

Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit: Elves
Tolkien’s texts are notable for their abundance of characters, many of them mentioned perhaps only once, other playing very important parts in the stories. However, it is often very difficult to find any description of how those characters look, and this is what we, artists and illustrators, are usually most concerned with.
So here it is – Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit – a list of all those characters, whose physical appearance is mentioned in the texts, including The Silmarillion and The History of the Middle-earth.
To start with, the Elves. As we know, during the march from Cuiviënén t

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
Hi everybody! What to say... I am homebody that draws things for a hobby, and doesn't have nearly enough time to do so as much as she'd like. I am a student (though not for long) and like to let my mind wander with Tolkien (and others) when number crunching gets to be too much. I'm Catalan, female and study chemistry and engineering.

For more info, click the following journal
After careful consideration, I decided to go on with the feature for points plan.
The general idea is to give beginning artists the chance to have their artwork featured on my front page. This might seem pointless to some, especially since there are busy services out there (like dAhub) that give you points for faving and watching artists. But hold on, it might just be worth it for you. With services like dAhub there's no guarantee your watchers will eventually keep active, or even like your work. In contrary to that kind of service, my feature won't give you points for watching or faving. Any person that watches you, will do so out of

Welcome here and let me introduce you, Flipfloppery, who is a really talented artist with an amazing and interesting comic called, Awaken.
♣ Let's start simple. Please, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hey! I'm Koti Saavedra, aka Flipfloppery on the internet, I'm 27 and I'm from Chile. I graduated from animation some years ago and I was working as an animator in a studio I co-founded until recently, but right now I'm in the process of making my webcomic Awaken my full time job.

9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR1. - Watercolors are FAST. They dry fast and you can finish a painting within one day. Given that you learn with every finished painting, you learn fast!9 Reasons to PAINT WITH WATERCOLOR3 years ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Watercolors don't stink. No dangerous chemical fumes, no headaches, usable around little children. Isn't that a wonderful reason!
3. - Watercolors are easy to clean. You don't make a lot of mess, and if you do, what water fouled, water will clean.
4. - There is no need for white paints. All the lightness is already given by your paper.
5. - Watercolors are practical to use outdoors. All your tools will fit into a small pocket.
6. - Watercolors are RELAXING. It must be the flooding, but whenever working with water and brush, your mind is set on ease.
7. - Watercolors bring transparent, delicate and ethereal results. Sometimes even a few well-lead brush strokes deliver sightly accomplishment.
8. - Watercolors are DIVERSE. They can be used in many very different ways and are ea

But at last you should know that as the author of the "The Autumnal Equinox" , what I put as first priority to judge this contest was the care and attention the participants have paid, and whether or not the result of their amazing works shows Anahita & Michael rather than only the references they have used.
