nobody makes art. there is just stuff.i feel the urge to publish my latest thoughts on the excessively tired topic of what is art and what isn't.nobody makes art. there is just stuff.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
i deem it as a tired topic because it doesn't fucking matter what is art and what is not.
further, i feel like most people's ideas on what art makes art is just backward.
nobody makes art.
nobody makes art.
people simply create stuff they want to create. maybe it's art in their mind.
other people who consume any sort of such creation may deem it art or not in their minds.
whatever anybody has in their mind about any such creations doesn't make nor change those creations.
a painting, photograph, sculpture or song doesn't give a flying fuck whether you consider it art or not.
it won't feel sad if you don't, and it won't change itself in an attempt to become art in your mind.
it is what it is, and that's stuff.
locations don't make art either.
there are museums and galleries that are as full of garbage as they are full of art.
there are also basements, attics and garages fill

2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
2D section covers all kind of colored, shaded images, preferably drawn with outlines.
3D works is about polygonal objects of all kinds, textured and with some post-processing for nice looks.
Vector images refer to things drawn with hard lines and occasional shading, such as blueprints and ink-like drawings.
I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for anything that you can think of.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the bottom of this entry.
I am looking forward to working with you and seeing a happy finish
Please note that preferably I acc

NETFLIX’S GAMBIT House of Cards Returns
In 2011 the online streaming and DVD rental service Netflix made a conspicuous bet
By outbidding established television networks like HBO, Showtime, and AMC, Netflix secured the in–development series House of Cards, ordering twenty–six episodes to air over two seasons. On February 27, the show’s third season will return to air on Netflix, which means that if you were thinking of going out

We are finally launching our Character Design Contest!
I have been wanting to do this for a while now, something that’s a lot of fun where it gives you a chance to use your creativity and art skills to win awesome prizes!
In this contest, you get to design a character based off ANY key or piece of jewelry we have made. It can be based off one in our DA gallery, one in our etsy shop, or one that has already sold from our shop. It does not have to be a key, it can be anything we’ve made.
Anyone can enter, worldwide. Digital and traditional art accepted. It can be a fully painted picture or line art. Other media, such as clay/ sculpting or costume making, are acceptable as well.
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING
Design a character using parts inspired from a necklace in our gallery or shop.

Whole work in progress video... YouTubeWork in progress painting videoWhole work in progress video... YouTube2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
And I finally uploaded whole video painting progress from my recent painting Hidden Temple (drawing below). I wanted to post it already yesterday but I rendered it like 10 times already and I just couldn't submit it (it rendered more than 8 hours). So now it finally worked (though I still can't see full HD resolution. I recorded screen on 1920x1080px, but for now I can only see 720. I don't know why I hope it'll work later). I drew it 7.5 hours, and video is 6 times faster than actual drawing. So you'll be able to see whole progress in one hour.
And here below is video which I uploaded on our YouTube account Tincek-MarincekART. Like you see it's from drawing above...I drew it flipped like I said under the drawing. It's matte painting and you can see how many layers I use

High FlightOh! I have slipped the surly bonds of EarthHigh Flight3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .
Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Fan Art Law
Mon Sep 10, 2012 by techgnotic
t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

The Climate Denialist Plea for InactionThe Climate Denialist Plea for Inaction1 month ago in Personal More Like This
As they tend to do from time to time in an effort to distract from the climate science consensus, a group of scientists who are also climate "skeptics" have published an opinion-editorial (op-ed), trying to make the case against taking action to address climate change. As usual, the article is little more than a regurgitation of a number of climate myths we have debunked at Skeptical Science.
The signatories of this newest letter are also worth noting for their lack of noteworthiness. Although the climate denialist blogs have labeled them "luminaries" and "
