Oblivion FeatureOblivion Feature2 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.

Ok we're back, sorta. School is a terrible environment for art. And I have a lot of people who can vouch for that XD Anyway, the point is, I won't be working on it at 10 a day. Not for now, anyway. What is going to happen instead, is, I'll be drawing the remaining Pokemon first, then :IconAldenlite: will vector them. After that I'll color them all at one go, and you guys will see the complete collection. About time, I know. It's coming to the end of a school term, after which I have a week to rush up my homework, and of course, the project. Hopefully I can get it up by then.
Anyway due to the new sequence of actions, we'll actually need 3 progress bars to handle this.

J. Paul Getty - The Liberation of Masterpieces as Open Content
The J. Paul Getty Museum has initiated an Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible.
A first sharing of 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection, including many masterworks, has just been made available and all are free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.
In a brilliant stroke, the Getty Museum has liberated one of the top collections of art in the world not just for access but for use. The museum is literally “beaming up” the great works in its collection as living resour
Holiday Card Project 2012Holiday Card Project 20122 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It's back! With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA
Superior Spiderman vs regular spidermanwell, just got through reading two volumes of superior spiderman and i gotta' say i love this more gritty and violent spiderman. while he does have issues with a superiority complex, for the most part i agree with his methods. He put a bunch of trackers to watch over the city rather than have to hope to randomly see something and get lucky, he is pushing his personal appointments and keeping them, he broke up with mary jane to stop putting her in danger and stop going in an eternal loop and he finalizes on beating the shit out of villains to teach them good and proper why crime doesn't pay. Now i know people say, but spiderman doesn't beat people nearly to death and that's wrong, and yadda yadda. But think on it, as otto himself pointed out, spidey let massacre go and what happened? an extra 30+ body count including one of spidey's own personal friends. while the ideal fantasy hero is one who never kills, reality is a finalization to an enemy needs to be a serious optSuperior Spiderman vs regular spiderman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
List of tips that you wont here that often.Some tips you wont hear that often.List of tips that you wont here that often.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Be happy about yourself.
You can work forever just to make that one painting look perfect. This might restrict you from doing more work and might prevent you from doing more work for your clients. Make it look good and if there is time left, make it perfect. Okay that one is kind off common but now the fun starts.
2. Don't try and hit on a girl or guy via chat or something while you have tight deadlines.
Just don't, it takes up enormous amounts of time and concentration. So for all you single sexy artists, just wait until your deadline is finished.
3. Stay in shape, physical and psychological.
First off its always good for you to be in top condition so you can preform way better. But this also helps in a lot of other aspects, for one it helps you sleep better. Feeling good about yourself improves your self confidence and that will also show in your work. Another good reason is self reference photo's, if your better in shape odds are that you're bo

It's weird and moving to see a year of your life playing in a theater! Here's the trailer for DreamWorks' next movie: helmed by Chris Sanders, alohalilo, (Lilo and Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon) - meet the The Croods! The first, prehistoric, family tries to survive the end of the world - but they have to survive each other as well. Watch a script that handles multiple relationships between innovative characters combined with amazing environments and creature designs. Great family film - with a sloth. Who doesn't love sloths?
The Croods premieres in theaters March 22, 2013. Featuring the voices of Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, and more!

Guy who commissioned work from me: Hey do you have that thing? I'm really excited to see what you came up with.
Me: Ah, no.
Guy: Where is it?
So, I had some commissioned work I've been doing for a guy who'd been serving in Korea, and I wanted to keep it super-safe, so I put it in my super-safe, water-fire-and-smudge proof portfolio/case. Which is also where I keep my botanical plates.
Which I had to turn in for a semester review.
And which, apparently, my teacher took with her on her annual trip to Finalnd.
We managed to get a hold of her briefly, she does have them, and they're fine, and will be back with her after the elections.

Top ten GOOD Mary Sues in existenceWelcome to another ‘Article’ of mine about a subject matter that is a torment for creative wannabes and honey for all brainy wannabes who want to be critics.Top ten GOOD Mary Sues in existence2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, about a month ago I was talking about the Worst Mary Sues ever conceived (To be seen here: http://thelasttrueartist.deviantart.com/journal/Top-10-Worst-Mary-Sues-in-Existence-322123529). Ever since then, I got some new experience concerning the topic, and I concluded, that if we were to judge ‘Mary Sue/ Not Mary Sue’ the way Mary Sue tests and Hunters want to judge, then pretty much every single pop-cultural character is a Mary Sue and Gary Stu.
And I thought – Well, why not try counting down Mary Sues that are actually good? I suppose those who read every single of my journal entries already know that I have the biggest requirements for the story than anything, and it shows with my personal countdown – Pretty much every single ‘Worst’ Mary Sue of mine got there because they wer

1. PROJECT HIPSTER-TROLL IS A SUCCESS!
Went to boyfriend's Brother's wedding, filled with equal parts Hipsters and old Jewish people, who were awesome (the Jewish people, not the hipsters, you ninnies). The ceremony was lovely, except that the couple had scheduled it for out doors at 3PM in June, prime thunderstorm time. When the judge got to the "does anyone here object" part, trollstorm responded with a truly spectacular crack of thunder. I have to applaud the judge who responded immediately with 'No more comments from the peanut gallery!" and got on with the ceremony before anyone could get electrocuted.
Once inside, I found I was seated with the music snobs and literally the first thing out of the bearded one's mouth was "so what do you listen to?" (beardy was the one who really got on boyfriend's case with the musical snobbery last tim

Although this generally applies to fictional stories of a fantastic nature, many characters are associated with a particular "element". I say element in quotes due to the fact that the term does not simply encompass the traditional European or Chinese elements. Depending on the story, an element will be just as likely to take the form of a special ability as it is to be expressed as a motif for a character. The shape the element will take (or not, as the story's universe permits) is quite literally limited only by the imagination of the writer.
I'd like to take a closer look at the character types that wield these elements (standard and non-standard alike). Just think of it as a repository for characters with similar abilities. With that said, I'd like to establish a few rules by which I will use in these examinations:
The elements present in the story must be capable of being called upon in some shape or form and
