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

Power BreakdownOH MY GOSH YOU GUYS. He's just AMAZING.Power Breakdown2 years ago in Personal More Like This
:iconcalculatus: This guy decided to make a breakdown of abilities of Blaze and Penn for me and there are some crazy stuff here!
Check it out!!!))
You gave us a few of Blaze's and Penn's abilities in the past but I decided that it wasn't good enough for me, so I fleshed their powers out some more by taking their skills and physical and spiritual properties of fire into account.
·Fire flows in his blood, making him immune to all foreign contaminants such as poison and disease.
o This would lead to regenerative healing factor since the flames would be constantly cauterizing his wounds. This is kind of like how phoenixes heal themselves.
Fire elementals are abnormally strong since fire spiritually represents strength.
·He holds a symbiotic bond with fire, and can emit* it from his body through fire breath, explosions, flame armor, rocket-propelle

Talks with Tolkien artists: annoulakiAs a great Aragorn fan myself, I adore the gentle illustartions of :iconannoulaki: - annoulaki, a young Greek artists who depicts lovely scenes from his family life. She almost declined the interview for not being "good enough artist", but I managed to convince her that skill is not what's most important for these talks, and that her pictures are interesting and inspiring enough to be shared with you.

As you may have noticed, I've just posted a new deviation devoted to Dean Winchester, one of the heroes of the CW show Supernatural. In my fan art the character is surrounded by flames, a reference to his little stay in hell However I think that the "no flames version" is not bad either If you want to check it out, it's on my scraps. Just click on the miniature below and you will be face to face with Jensen Ackles.
The guy gave me some hard times. I had to draw his face 8 times. I almost went nuts but I don't give up easily even for a stupid fan art. It took me one week but I'm pretty happy with the result. I hope it looks like him and when people saw my fan art they immediately recognized Dean Winchester from SPN.
As we talk about Supernatural it is time for a little fan art feature. Here are, from my point of view the best SPN fan arts on

Part 1: Submitting with POWER
I know there are a million "how to be popular" guides on DA and a million more parody versions of them. This article isn't about becoming popular, or starting drama or racking up pageviews as fast as possible for the sake of seeing a larger number.
This article won't make your art better, or make you more a more popular personality. However, what I've noticed is that many artists are missing out on feedback and exposure that they should be getting if not for a few common mistakes. Time after time, I've read on Artist's Confessions, or just browsing through members' personal journals that their gallery doesn't recieve any traffic and they can't improve because they're not getting any feedback. They feel like their lack of popularity is a personal statement. That their art isn't worth looking at. This is entirely untrue.
Hopefully this will help you, the underexposed artist, to b

Kind of tokka fic? I had to.My name is Toph Beifong, and everyone around me knows it. They can tell by my radicalness that radiates from me, and the flying boar crest on my much-too-fancy dress Katara had given me to use for this occasion. The occasion? We are going to a high end dinner-party arranged by Fire Lord Zuko to welcome back his sister from her rehabilitation. She had been in the crazy house for ten years, and finally she was able to come out.Kind of tokka fic? I had to.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It pained me to know that so many people had been worried about her, even after what she had done. Luckily, with Aang and Zuko working together, they will soon be able to create an armistice between the remaining three nations. But for now, the three nations representatives sit apart, not speaking to one another. I take my seat with the rest of the Gaang, right between Sokka and Suki.
Sokka and Suki had had a complicated relationship the last few years, and had drifted apart. Suki was all business, always out helping on the front lines while Sokka was here, trying
