2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
2D section covers all kind of colored, shaded images, preferably drawn with outlines.
3D works is about polygonal objects of all kinds, textured and with some post-processing for nice looks.
Vector images refer to things drawn with hard lines and occasional shading, such as blueprints and ink-like drawings.
I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for anything that you can think of.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the bottom of this entry.
I am looking forward to working with you and seeing a happy finish

PIONEERS SPACE ARTISTS DD - FEATURE #8Hello guys,PIONEERS SPACE ARTISTS DD - FEATURE #86 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This is a very special feature that is really dear to me, with a spicy taste of nostalgia and still awe and jaw dropping when looking at those artists.
This is a tribute to all the amazing space artists I met during my 4 years around here on dA, artists who are still active, pioneers in this digital style, or inactive on Deviantart but still not to be forgotten.
Artists you must have seen at least once here for they brought to life, feed on and on and still do, space scenes which fascinate me, give me fruit for thoughts, undoubtful inspiration to everyone who wants to grow in painting, photomanip or 3D style, serving art at its best, helping each other.
Space art is a real community, almost like a learning school, a commuity which has all my respect which I am proud belonging to.
Serving space art gallery today as a CV is a great honor as formerly some of those below did too and served the best way they could.
Thank you for all tha

Artist Profile: Drell-7I'm going to try something new, here an artist mini profile for an artist who is unlikely to be profiled in any mainstream venue. My subject du jour is Drell-7 (aka Tom Peters) http://drell-7.deviantart.com/. I met Tom in '86 at the Origins convention when we were both working on illustration for Game Designers' Workshop's new RPG release, "Traveller: 2300" (later relaunched as "2300 A.D."). When we met it was like an instant click we both seemed to immediately understand where each other's art came from and recognized we traveled in the same groove (or gutter ).Artist Profile: Drell-72 years ago in Personal More Like This

This journal entry is about spam. Or rather, it's about what spam isn't.
According to the help section spam is this:
"What is "spamming"?
Spamming is the act of using deviantART as a means to commercially advertise using journals, deviations comments, forums or notes and is considered an abuse regardless of how or where the advertisements are presented.
Commercial business operations are welcome to advertise on deviantART but only through proper advertising channels as outlined through our advertising contact page located at [link] . Commercial entities creating accounts to advertise for free, will find their accounts closed and their websites potentially blacklisted."

'There's Some Good Worth Fighting For''It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you.

My most hated Star Wars changesWhenever George Lucas re-releases the Star Wars movies, he usually adds or changes scenes from parts of the movies which infuriates most fans. I don't support his changes either, but some of them fix continuity errors which I can understand. Here is my list of most hated changes from the re-releases.My most hated Star Wars changes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Star Wars: A New Hope-Obi-Wan's Krayt Dragon call
Both the 1977 and 2004 versions of Obi-Wans scream sound similar, but the 2011 Blu-ray re-release sounds WAY too different. He sounds "like a gay man stepping on a lego". I don't really get that quote's logic but I really don't like his new scream.
Star Wars: A New Hope-Greedo shoots first
I HATE this change. In the 1977 theatrical release, Han Solo and Greedo have a conversation and all of a sudden Han shoots Greedo in cold blood. Then, George Lucas changed that in the 1997 theatrical re-release and made Greedo shoot first. His reason for this was to make Han seem more like a hero for younger viewers. Seriously, why change that? Han was su

Star Wars: The Phantom Menace-Yoda
In the original 1999 version of the movie, Yoda appears as a puppet which looks like crap compared to the 2011 Blu-ray version which replaced him with a CGI Yoda and it looks SO much better.
Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith-The shouting clonetroopers
In the scene where Obi-Wan Kenobi fights General Grievous in the planet Utapah, an army of clonetroopers arrive to fight the droids that were spectating the lightsaber duel. In the original version of the film, the clones don't say anything, but in the Blu-ray version, they shout out orders and commands. I'm a big fan of the clones and they barely talk in the prequel trilogy so I welcome more talking clones.

Oz: Everything Wrong With Modern FilmThis following journal will have no slights against The Avengers.Oz: Everything Wrong With Modern Film1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I know I can be negative, but it's films like Oz: The Great and Powerful that make me concerned that SOMEONE has to be.
I was going to do an 'Analyzing and Improving' review of sorts of this film, but the problem is that that core of the movie is so trite and flimsy there's nothing to repair and nothing to improve upon.
This is especially sad because included on the DVD I saw was a mini-documentary on how one of Walt Disney's greatest aspirations was to make a movie for Oz...and the way the company honored a great storyteller who cared about characters and innovation, was to make a derivative, empty, lifeless special effects demo reel.
The special aspect of this film though is how, blow by blow, The Great and Powerful Oz is a text book example of EVERYTHING wrong with modern filmmaking.
The positives first. In keeping with its bizarre consistency with the zeitgeist, Oz has exceptional A-List acting talent, marvelo

A Tumblr post has been circulating, where Hot Topic is selling artist's works as T-shirts in their store, including popular fan art without the artist's permission, deviant artists included. It caught on wildfire when one user linked to deviantART's Submission Policy, stating users gave permission to dA by agreeing to their Terms of Service thereby allowing dA to sell it to third party royalty free.

$4 Billion? (£2.5 Billion, in real money)
Not as much as Pixar.....but then, if Lucasfilm were a house, JarJar would be the devaluing, sh*t-stained carpet a new owner would have to deal with.
And, no, I'm not going to denounce it. Disney buying Lucasfilm? That has potential, and I'm not talking Star Wars, here.
If I've read the press release on the Disney corporate website correctly, they now own EVERYTHING – including Lucasarts, which is a division of Lucasfilm.
Monkey Island/Day of the Tentacle/Sam & Max + Disney? That could be amazing!
As for the (inevitable) Star Wars 7, I'm really hoping they use the Thrawn Trilogy. In fact, I'm betting they do. Let's face it; Disney haven't ever had an original idea, that's why they keep buying up other people's work, and if they're hoping to have something released by 2015 they'll have no choice but to dive into existing material.
Of course, if they produce a Satur
Teenage Alien Ninja TurtlesI've just learned that filmmaker Michael Bay (aka - Uwe-Boll-With-A-Budget) has turned his withering gaze upon the Heroes in a Half-Shell, and has set about mutilating the franchise by informing us that their origin will change in his upcoming (oh god; if I have to refer to another film as this I may start weeping blood) reboot.Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Y'know in the Disney animation Bolt where the idiot pigeons give a one-word pitch at how to "improve" the series that the titular doggie has absconded from? It's a dig at crappy writers that have no idea how to come up with an original idea and so just shoehorn in absurd new story elements to an existing tale.
Well; that's basically what Mr Bay has said:
Nope. They're not mutants anymore. They're aliens.
