Final Fantasy VII Loveless ACT 1-5PrologueFinal Fantasy VII Loveless ACT 1-53 years ago in Personal More Like This
When the war of the beasts brings about the world's end
The goddess descends from the sky
Wings of light and dark spread afar
She guides us to bliss, her gift everlasting
Infinite in mystery is the gift of the goddess
We seek it thus, and take it to the sky
Ripples form on the water's surface
The wandering soul knows no rest
There is no hate, only joy
For you are beloved by the goddess
Hero of the dawn, Healer of worlds
Dreams of the morrow hath the shattered soul
Pride is lost
Wings stripped away, the end is nigh
My friend, do you fly away now?
To a world that abhors you and I?
All that awaits you is a somber morrow
No matter where the winds may blow
My friend, your desire
Is the bringer of life, the gift of the goddess
Even if the morrow is barren of promises
Nothing shall forestall my return
My friend, the fates are cruel
There are no dreams, no honour remains
The arrow has left the bow of the goddess
My soul, corrupted by vengeance

.:The Templars in Assassin's Creed Black Flag:.The chaos in the Caribbean at the time that elapses Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag allows to the Templars take the opportunity to increase its influence in the region. In our history, this secret sect includes historical figures like Governor Woodes Rogers and the pirate Benjamin Hornigold. Due to the political turmoil of the time, Edward Kenway will have to see what's behind the masks of these public figures to progress as Assassin. Both officers and criminals have ulterior motives and doesn't always act with bad intentions.

Speedpaint in Verve!Here is an hour long painting I did in Verve to see if it could produce something decent in it... not bad! I really love the more traditional look. Always wished Photoshop had something like this. Still pretty tricky to work in Verve and it feels very limited still but for an alpha version its fucking awesome.Speedpaint in Verve!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
And if you missed it, here is an overview of the features you can find in Verve, a new GPU based painting program I discovered recently. The developer is working on it at the moment so it's still in early alpha, but still shaping out to be quite interesting

SO anyway let's get this thing officially rolling! YEAH! Before work pulls me into the abyss again.
We're going to be working on silhouettes!
ex: http://i396.photobucket.com/albums/pp45/Elyzius/cartoon_silhouettes.gif , http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m173a59xhg1qcbajko1_1280.jpg
A silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single colour, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject.
"When an object's silhouette is difficult to make out, we have a tough time keeping track of what we're seeing. It's why so many comics and drawings use the visual shorthand out outlining figures and objects. The shades and values of an object are secondary to the basic shape when it comes to recognition. As such, effectively managing silhouettes is a vital tool for visual narratives." - Aaron Diaz

30 Day Fanart ChallengeSo this dA account is supposed to be my fanart account (Although for the most part it's just been my Despicable Me fanart account) but I always meant to do some fanart for other things I like too, so I'm creating this meme. It's basically for anyone who wants to do it, but I'm going to be doing it too.30 Day Fanart Challenge3 years ago in Personal More Like This
* Draw one piece of fanart every day. Can be as simple or as complicated as you like.
*Fanart can be of anything in books, movies, video games, manga, anime, television and comic books but each day has to be dedicated to something different, not the same book, movie, video game etc.
That's it, it's pretty open.

It's from Yugioh. But...seriously? This is the monster design they were going for with this guy? Couldn't the dragon head be on his tail or something?
I know the Japanese can be weird at times, but really, guys? Who got wasted on the sake to make this monster?
I think I'm gonna go cuddle with Neltharion. Because that scares me.
A little stressed...Personal Art?What? I hardly know the meaning of the word anymore XDA little stressed...Personal Art?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Anyway, I've been finding myself a little stressed these past few weeks...I am trying to transfer colleges, my brother moved out for college, I have so much work...everything is just so stressful.
And then I looked back on my workload for the summer and realized that I really haven't created anything for myself. Art is really what keeps me going and feeling happy...the fact that I haven't really taken any time for myself this summer was quite a bummer. I just want one piece to hang up in my room to call my own.
I'm not making this journal to whine though! Quite the opposite. I found myself sketching out a large dragon on a piece of 24inch bristol board this morning, and I knew I wanted to finish him This project could take a few days, but I am hell-bent on getting it done. It really would be nice to finish him and have something big all to myself It seems like all of the big works I create nowad

This is very heart warming to see other artists inspired by my works. The greatest compliment is to see someone else mimic you and that certainly holds true. If I missed any one's piece inspired by me, just leave a link to it in the comments and I'll throw it up here. Check these out.
