The ring bearer by SusaStrawberry
The characters in J. R. R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings have been enticing readers for over 60 years.
Today fans are able to journey to the magical realm of Middle-earth through the wizardry of Peter Jackson’s revolutionary six film cinematic adventure.
Jackson ushered in the age of the modern day movie franchise by questionably shootin
Wheel Of Time FeatureSo anyone who is a fan of the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan knows that the fourteenth (and last book) is coming out on 8th January 2013. And to anyone who isn't a fan .... well you should be. Cause it's awesome.Wheel Of Time Feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Anyhoo, I am uber excited for this book coming out. I started reading these books about ten years ago and have been hooked on them ever since. And now the last book is coming out! Unfortunately Robert Jordan died in 2007, but he passed on the mantle to Brandon Sanderson, in order for the sereis to continue. Personally I think Sanderson has done a fantastic job with the continuing the story. But it is a shame that Jordan didn't get to see the finish himself.
And here is where my feature comes in. I did think about posting this on 8th January, but lets be honest, it just wouldn't get done then. I'll be far too busy reading my book.
There is an amazing amount of WoT fanart on Deviant Art and I thought it'd

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:

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.

I'M SURE YOU ALL don't REMEMBER THE PIECE OF WRITING I DID BACK IN NOVEMBER, DEMISE OF THE SPIRIT'S GUIDING LADY. Well. Back in February, I decided on the spur of the moment to turn it into a comic series. I figured, 'oh it's pretty short, and I've already got everything written and all the characters designed, why not?' Then things happened and pages started to fly out and it was decided that I was going to get it published, and... well... IT WAS! The zero-budget comic ended up being done in just six months (for the first couple months I was just treating it as a side-project, but if I'd known it was getting published it would've been completed a

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

Murder at the Castle! Let the investigation begin!Last night, Cinderella was to host the greatest ball in all the land in honour of her Husband, Prince Charming. It had been months of hard work; every servant and helper furiously putting together the finest of touches to ensure everything was perfect. Invitations had been sent out to exclusive friends and acquaintances alike, reaching the farthest parts of fairyland. It was to be the event of the century.Murder at the Castle! Let the investigation begin!1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
There was no denying, Cinderella had become highly stressed of late. Organising such a fabulous ball had taken its toll, especially when perfection was her objective. Her inner control freak had taken over and she no longer cared who she upset or angered as long as the ball was exact. Friends were no longer happy with her, she wouldn't keep promises- let alone attend unnecessary events such as Alice's weekly tea party. In fact, even her own husband, who all this was for, had not been in her mind.
The Ball was lavish; champagne fountains, golden swans, shimmery streamers, a stylish d&

This is why you (and your art) get ignored.People often get the sense of being ignored in the art-scene, especially here online. We all try so hard to get our foot in the door, it's like trying to stuff yourself in an overfull bus like a sardine in a can.This is why you (and your art) get ignored.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes you just want to socialize with other artists you admire and you seem to be talking into a brick wall or perhaps you've send your portfolio to a company over a dozen times and still don't even seem to get the smallest response or feedback. I will try and tell you WHY you get ignored and HOW you can get noticed instead.
I will go through the following cases of being ignored:
Do know, that even though being ignored feels very personal it's hardly ever personal at all!
Your comment(s) gets ignored.
It happens ever so often. You notice an artwork or a discussion and you weigh in with your opinion or admiration, perhaps even some feedback? T

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.

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.
