Star Wars: A New Hope
The Empire Bargains by dvsdesigner
Who’s the most important person now in the Star Wars franchise? JJ Abrams? Think again!
It has begun. Below you will find the trailer to the beginning chapter of the next Star Wars sequels, Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, a new trilogy for a new generation. One well crafted 88 second trailer later, and it's just what we were hoping for. X-Wings, Tie Fighters, brand new Light Saber designs, the Millenium Falcon and just enough intriguing character moments to have us all gu
What Future Brings - the Beacon of Hope.This has been a wild, wild week for me. Never before have I juggled so many things at one time, between work, private life and the stuff I will write about in a second. First things first, let me get the single most anticipated question out of the way, so as not to keep you in further suspense - the next episode of "Marauder Shields" will be up on Wednesday, 16th of May, which basically means that I am skipping a single episode this week. Believe me, the decision didn't come easy, but it was either that or turning in a half-done, cut-up episode, which wouldn't do Zaeed any justice, nor would it present Emily Wong's legacy in the light it deserves. But let's not get even further into spoilerish territory right now.What Future Brings - the Beacon of Hope.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For the past week I've been busy like a bee, flying around frantically, organizing bits of stuff I know extremely well and large pockets of stuff I've never even touched before... But knowing that it will be worth it in the end. Allow me to wear my Renegade face for the rest

It seems the Force has truly Awoken, at least it has here on DeviantArt.
It has been one week since the teaser trailer for the first of the Disney owned Star Wars movies was released. Twitter and Facebook nearly broke under the deluge of postings of the trailer and frame by frame commentary of it. Each commentator hoping to spot something everyone else had missed.

Clothing Design Contest (closed for Judging~)Okay it's that time again!Clothing Design Contest (closed for Judging~)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That's right contest time!
It's been a while and I've been trying to figure out just what kind of contest I've wanted to hold.
After a long debate with me, myself and I, we came up with the decision for a clothing designing contest. I've never held this kind of contest so it should be fun, yes?
Anyways here's basically what I've decided to do.
I've got a cute little husky girl in need of a wardrobe.
Yep that's my little Suki, isn't she cute?~
As you can see she is rather cold in her current clothing.
She comes from the land of ice and snow and needs something more suited to such a life style.
She'll be needing 2 sets of clothing (winter ware and summer ware), so that makes 2 first place prizes, second, third ect. If you're still interested please read more below.
All updates shall be added here when I have them, so if you see a journal update look he
Official W.I.T.C.H. Hypno Art Contest!This will be my first ever contest and I thought about how I could make it big so I decided to offer big prizes and as many contest winners and runner ups will be given prizes as well as a grand prize winner I want this to be as successful as possible for this contest and I wanted to add an angle to it as well so I thought of my favorite show of all time I must say W.I.T.C.H. and than I thought it would be ok to just post normal W.I.T.C.H. art like you can find all over DA AND LET ME TELL YOU THEIR ARE SOME GREAT ONES OUT THERE, but I also have seen some unique types out their two some that add my personal favorite angel hypnosis. It to me adds new feeling to the world of W.I.T.C.H. and I wanted to use some type of effect in the art submitted so I thought it would be great if some of the art entries had some characters of W.I.T.C.H. under the spell of the horn of hypnos (i.e. hypnotized forever etc, etc).

Fascists attack!Last night the MPAA took down Megaupload and several staff members were arrested, on the grounds of copyright infringement.Fascists attack!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In response to this, Anonymous launched their biggest attack ever against organizations like the MPAA, RIAA etc and took down their websites.
Since the SOPA protest was received extremely well, it'll be exciting to see what other political moves the internet can make in future.
The fascists won't be able to beat down protesters on the internet like they did with Occupy Wall Street.

But I have a solution!
Why not think of SPRING?
The sun stays out longer to reveal a teaming array of life just waiting to be unveiled. The flowers are just starting to burst open with vibrant colours and the promise of long summer afternoons begin to float along the wind.
So the theme is very simple... Spring! (And I do mean the season, not the verb~.)
All you have to do is draw one of my characters (in colour) with the idea of spring in mind.
Traditional and Digital pieces are both accepted.

Nov.21/11It actually sickens me what people will say about you , like you aren't even real . I understand constructive criticism and even flat out rude comments don't bother me , but they do bother other people . On my latest photo , I was called anorexic , ugly , disturbing etc. As well comments like "why don't men look like men anymore?" What has society become that we find it socially acceptable to EVER talk to someone like that . If I didn't have thick skin that would bother me a lot more . But for the people it does bother , you could be taking away an innocent life by talking to someone like that . It just makes me so upset how we treat each other and that it's just going downhill . I have a project for you . Go to school/work tomorrow and go up to one person who could use a compliment and say something nice to them . Little things can make a big difference .Nov.21/113 years ago in Personal More Like This

StarCraft II is the hot tournament videogame that just may breakthrough as the harbinger of the esports phenomenon and one of the great cultural game-changers of all time.
Midnight in Anaheim. Caffeinated casters boom rapid fire commentary rattling the packed hall. Elite Starcraft players from around the globe execute complex strats that would have made Rommel the Desert Fox himself proud. 20,000 are in attendance, on the edge of their seats, and cheering as loudly as any soccer match as they watch the 30-foot screens hanging from the rafters. Another four and a half million are watching the streams live. The feeling is that of an NCAA Final Four game, set in a European soccer stadium, somehow shoehorned into a casino showroom in Las Vegas. It’s all of the skill, the fan devotion and the spectacle anyone could pos

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.
In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I
Goodbye Star Wars Expanded Universe......Well there goes the Expanded Universe. Its been a privilege to contribute to the universe but now some of my SW works are just part of a glorified "fan fiction". I'm still looking forward to contribute to the new canon but part of the Star Wars fan in me died with the official announcement. I just hope that some parts of the EU will make it through to the new canon. As far as future Star Wars works are concerned I can no longer draw on my knowledge of the EU cause the slate has been wiped clean and everything will be new territory from here on out. Whether this is good or bad I really can't decide at this point. I'll just have to wait and see how things pan out.Goodbye Star Wars Expanded Universe......8 months ago in Personal More Like This

In 2014, DeviantArt turned 14 years old. Fourteen years is a long time, some of you reading this may be younger than that. I've gathered some historical information with the help of Moonbeam13 and some members of the Community Relations team to help enlighten those of you who have joined in recent years and missed out on a chunk of DeviantArt's life.
I hope you enjoy taking a step back in time!
Please note: it is extremely difficult to track down some events in deviantART's history (in particular, the first few years) and that some dates are only approximate.

A subject’s hands are the make–up artist’s nightmare. But a subject’s hands are the artist’s delight. All the lines, scars or arthritic bumps are a road map of our lives. The smooth or rough of the skin indicates a life of labor or leisure (or, at least, cerebral tasks). The gesticulations of the hands, captured by the alert and sensitive artist, can often articulate so much more than mere words.
“Now join your hands, and with your hands your hearts.”
