Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion is one of my favourite games of all time, surpassed only by Morrowind, and I've been planning for a long time to put together a feature with original artwork. Unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since almost all Oblivion-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
Oblivion is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2006. The central plot revolves around the efforts to thwart the fanatical cult Mythic Dawn that plans to open the gates to the demonic realm of Oblivion. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are quest lines for several guilds, and many side missions. Despite being less diversified and immersive than Morrowind, the incredible amount of quality third-party add-ons add a lot of scope and replay value to the game.

The third game in the video game series, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is coming out on May 19, 2015. In preparation for the release of this game, here's a compilation of some of the best of The Witcher fan art, as well as descriptions about some of the complex and interesting characters found in this world.

Announcements and Updates
>One Week Left to get your submissions in! Let's go, go, go!
Let's get right into the May event, which I am calling:
LEAGUE OF THE FUTURE
In the far future, the League of Legends still exists. Technology has overtaken magic as the dominant force in Runeterra. Lasers, spaceships, and advanced artificial intelligence are now commonplace. The champions of the League are all still alive and still fighting.
How It Works
For this event, you must re-imagine a champion (or champions) as they might exist in a futuristic League of Legends. Perhaps Tristana has anti-gravity boots to allow her to jump around. Maybe Garen now wields a giant laser blade. The possibilities here are limitless.
Some Simple Rules
10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit ArtYou know i keep my journals short, so i'll jump right to it.10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit Art3 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
1. When you get an idea for a character, or an illustration or a comic, you can just draw it. You don't have to browse and see if anyone else drew it already, or commission other artists to do it.
2. If you get really good at art, your favorite artist might watch you back.
3. You might eventually get paid for it.
4. Because even if there's tons of art out there, and many great artists, no one, and i mean NO ONE can ever draw what you draw. There can be similar ideas, but only you can bring your particular flavor of art to life.
5. The awesome comments. The better you get at art, the more awesome and elaborate comments you get. Who doesn't want to get praised?
6. Art trades with really good artists!
7. Because quitting is lame.
8. Because when IRL people ask you what you do and you say you're an artist, you get the most interesting reactions. It never gets old.
9. Because you get to browse the internet a

A dude named Barium Master Wrote this along with a link:
New DLC info came with the 1.8 patch. The information confirms DLC for the PS3. The patch information also gave information on the next DLC entitled Dragonborn. This DLC will contain Dragon mounts and new armors like Chitin, Bonemold, Nordic, and Salthrim armors. The DLC will add one or more new questlines primarily focusing on the Dragonborn. And the DLC will take place on a large island north of Skyrim called Solstheim which is the new homeland to the Dunmer after the eruption of Red Mountain.

Godzilla 2014 reviewLet's do this.Godzilla 2014 review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What did I think of this movie?
Honestly, I can see where a lot of people were having a huge problem with this one, especially the kaiju fans.
And especially coming off of Pacific Rim of last year.
And....*sigh* Godzilla Final Wars.
What did we get as the last Godzilla movie to be made by Toho? A monster bash, right? Or more like Godzilla just hammering it in about how awesome he is after he just defeats one opponent after another in less than 10 seconds. Poor Hedorah. Was on screen just to be impaled by Ebirah by accident. Mostly because Godzilla tossed Ebirah out first, then tossed Hedorah onto Ebirah's claw.
And he had the same sort of stupid green agenda with the same depth as Birdemic.
Yes, I am now comparing Godzilla Final Wars with Birdemic. It was that awful.
But Pacific Rim in its absurdity, which was just delicious due to all the archetypes being just over the top hammy. And it's why we enjoyed t

After much deliberation and discussion, the SplitTooth contest is finally here!
We've decided that this toothy group deserves a toothy representative to match it! ;v; That's right, SplitTooth is in need of a mascot! (Which we are giving you guys the opportunity of designing! ;u; )

The Voice of SmaugI'm late to the party as always, mostly due to work. But I did listen to the main trailer in which we heard Benedict Cumberbatch as Smaug.The Voice of Smaug2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The whole "come now, don't be shy..." line sold it to me.
There we go, that's Smaug's personality. Baiting and seducing the tasty burglar to come out and be either eaten or roasted.
I seem to recall about three years ago, I posted all these internet speculations on what Smaug's voice would be like and who would play it. And apparently, yeah, we all got it wrong.
It wasn't Jeremy Irons. Thank God!
It wasn't James Earl Jones.
It wasn't Brad Dourif either, though I kinda hoped it would be.
It was Benedict Cumberbatch.
And as you can see, he's playing an airplane, I mean DRAGON!
I swear, revealing the design on a Boeing-777 is both silly and awesome at the same time!
But score one for us, we finally got a size measurement of our favorite gold hoarding dragon, right?
As for the tons, I'm guessing he's close to Jonathan's we
Wasn't I clear enough?I'd explained it the best I could. The easiest way as possible since english isn´t my first language.Wasn't I clear enough?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've received "immature" comments and notes saying that I'm a JERK or a B#$%H because I left the fans down all because I discontinued the comic and started a NEW one...
Let me clarify you what a PROLOGUE is:
A prologue is an opening to a story that establishes the setting and gives background details, often some earlier story that ties into the main one, and other miscellaneous information.
In other words: it's a story that comes BEFORE the main story. I mean... like if this summarize didn't have enough...
When I first uploaded the comic pages (that was 2008), I had a prologue on mind but never converted it as a graphic because I thought it wasn't really necessary. After organizing my ideas even more, I realized the comic NEEDED the help of the prologue because readers needed to have more knowledge of the backgr

So, I'd like to do a few art trades to try and combat that.
If you're interested, comment on here with one of your characters and I'll consider it I'll only do about 1-2 I think and I'll note the people I choose. So, yeah, choose one of your OCs and if you have a preferred one of mine to draw just suggest it.
A few things: don't be upset if I don't pick you, I'll only choose people of a similar ability to mine, if I choose you you need to put effort into the picture, my drawings won't be instant, absolutely NO pictures of couples/anything like that (I can't cope with it right now), it has to be something I can draw (no humans).
I hope some of you will be interested c:

I will introduce one new thing to picklemas this week:
Basically, I'll make some adoptables, but you won't know what they are! I'll only show present boxes, and you get to choose any one. I make the adoptables in advance, and assign them to a box, so I cannot alter which adoptable you happen to choose! These adopts should be ranging from 5 to 10 points each.
Have a wonderful Picklemas, and keep a close eye on your inbox for presents!
Crazy DLCs coming near summerDirect quote from Joystic.comCrazy DLCs coming near summer3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Metal Gear Rising Revengeance was already pretty crazy, being a sci-fi character action game about a cyborg cutting people up into pieces, based on a military stealth game. New DLC announced by developer Platinum Games brings the insanity into uncomfortable new levels.
For example, "VR19: Unarmed Combat Training" contains side-scrolling, unarmed brawling gameplay. That's part of 30 new VR missions, including one set in a dark room. These are the PS3-exclusive missions we'll be getting in North America.
"Soul of the Snake" is a special wooden sword ... that speaks in Solid Snake's voice when used. "Passionate feelings are alive and well for the cardboard," according to the Google Translation of Platinum's post. We'd translate it more naturally, but that's too wonderful to change.
The second announced DLC puts you in the shoes of enemy cyborg,

I've just lost my enthusiasm to do anything. Draw... work... live.
Everything I do ends up shit and I feel awful.
I try so so hard and yet someone always does it better. Nothing turns out right any more, not that it did in the first place. Everything I draw, someone can draw it better. Everything I write, someone can write it better. Everything I do, someone I can do it better!
It's just not fair! Just when you think you've got something good going, something happens to ruin it
Uhh... I just want to give up. Nothing any one has said to me can cheer me up. Sometimes, I just want to curl up into a little ball and die...
I can't cope with it any more! I just want to have something go right for me for once. Haven't I been through enough bad stuff yet without this too?
So, yeah... Sorry. Probably no art for a while, since I'm too depressed to do anything remotely good.
Don't try to make me feel better, it won't work. I'
