Where do you place value?I've been noticing a trend in a lot of Christians feeling like they need to defend themselves. So I'm going to share some things that have helped me with this.Where do you place value?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
An easy way to deal with this is to put more value on what God says about you than you put on what other people say about you. Which do you hold in higher regard? Does what other people think and say about you dominate your outlook? Or do you hold what God says in a higher esteem? It's good to value and respect other people. Even if someone is wrong about something, that person is still valuable. They are valuable to God, and so they should be valuable to you. But that doesn't mean you need to value that person's words or opinion, especially if they are wrong about something. If you only put value on what God says, no accusations or insults from others should affect you. For this to be effective, you need to know what God says. The bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is about Jesus and His finished work. Jesus is God's word. If i

:iconcalculatus: This guy decided to make a breakdown of abilities of Blaze and Penn for me and there are some crazy stuff here!

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.

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

Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:

1. Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
I am a full time professional artist and create work exclusively influenced by the writings of J.R.R Tolkien. I am originally from Chester, England but have lived in sunny Southern Spain for the last 6 years. I have exhibited and sold work world wide and work primarily in oils, acrylic and clay.
2. When did you read Tolkien's books for the first time, and what impression did they leave in you?
I suppose it all started from a very early age when I first
[Feature] (Undiscovered) Medieval-Themed ArtworkI've been wanting to do a feature for a while, and this Project Educate contest seemed like the perfect chance to do it. In this journal I've collected some pieces of art which depict medieval topics and/or are drawn in a medieval style. I've tried to choose deviations which don't have quite as many favourites as they deserve. Enjoy![Feature] (Undiscovered) Medieval-Themed Artwork1 month ago in Art Features More Like This

I decided to put my knowledge to use, for the benefit of our artistic community and all people out there trying to thrive.
As I've written in my ID, I'm a literature and language teacher. I've been working hard to get my master degree in French Literature and Narrative Theories, which will come latter this year.
And as for this, I thought I could be at your service to read your literature deviations and post you honest constructive critics based on the best of world wide letters!
But I have to be clear about one thing: I am not the kind of person that only say what you might want to hear.
I will never be rude or disrespectful BUT... it is needed of me to say sometimes things you may not agree or accept.
If you ask me for a critic don't be upset if I eventually point an aspect of your composition that needs to be improved.
I'm sure that it's not
My favorite „The Lord Of The Rings“ MomentsJust like so many other people, I have a long history with "The Lord Of The Rings". From my very early childhood up to this very day I have been fascinated with Middle Earth and everything connected to it. "The Hobbit" is my favorite book of all time and "The Lord Of The Rings" Trilogy is my favorite movie of all time. Seeing that "The Hobbit" is coming to cinemas this winter, I think it is time to re-watch these movies once again and list up my favorite scenes. Since I own The Special Extended DVD, I will use the extended cut for this list. Please keep in mind that this list is just based on my personal opinion and therefore maybe you'll be upset that your favorite scene might not be on this list. If so, you are welcome to tell me which scene that is, but please remember that everybody is entitled to their own opinion. I will try to give reasons for why I love the scenes so much, so maybe you can understand my opinion.My favorite „The Lord Of The Rings“ Moments2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all hea

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Life Drawing, painting, and Richard Armitage.LOL! As some of you may have noticed, a lot of my art lately has been drawing (mostly pencil) and some more figure drawing.Life Drawing, painting, and Richard Armitage.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I returned to taking classes in life drawing. It's been long overdue! I used to take figure drawing class at least once a year (if not several times a year), but there has been a long lapse, which made me feel like I was losing my edge. So finally I managed to get back to it, and it's been wonderful. So, expect to see more figure drawing (i.e. nudes) in my gallery.
I've mentioned this in my blog but I'll say it here too: figure drawing is a core part of many artists' education and a lot of us return to figure drawing regularly to keep our skills sharp.
I know that some people (even some artists!) think there's something wrong with drawing nudes (like it's "indecent"), but to me, it's all about stretching my drawing capabilities, and life drawing is one of the best ways to do that! So, I apologize if anyone doesn't like the nudes, but they are here to stay
