MASTERPOST: Mericcup GIFs(original post date: Nov 2012)MASTERPOST: Mericcup GIFs2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am posting some Merida/Hiccup GIFs that I made for these:
Since stamps are quite tiny and you can't really use them outside deviantArt, I've decided to upload the original GIFs. I didn't want to submit each one as a deviation so I've collected them into one masterpost instead.
Feel free to use, provided that:
1) you do not hotlink the images (right-click and save as, please; I don't want to have to re-upload these)
2) you do not alter them (ask permission first if you want to make any changes)
3) you do not claim them as your own
4) you credit back to the original makers.
In addition, if there is anyone who has made or come across other Mericcup-related GIFs, comment with a link to the image so that I may add them below. This entry serves as our group index.
This masterpost will be frequently updated.
April 1/50 for 150 Raffle!BULLETIN:April 1/50 for 150 Raffle!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
As a way to kick off April's coloring contest, we are once again hosting the 1/50 for 150 Raffle! All you have to do is +Fav this journal, which puts you in a random drawing to win an easy 150 dA points! Pretty easy, huh? So easy and effortless, you'll probably wake up in a few days having completely forgotten, and wondering just who this color-me-club fellow is that's throwing random dA points at you.
There will be a winner added for each extra 50 +Fav's this journal receives. So you have, at minimum, a one in fifty shot at winning! However, the winner cap will be at 500 +Fav's, so get yourself in quickly to be in the first 500 before the cap is reached!
Of course, this whole raffle thing is just a big ol' ruse to stir up attention to an even bigger event. Yep, already mentioned it earlier, but colorists unite(!) we're also kicking off our next coloring contest!

What I want to see in Star Wars: BattlefrontSo looks like they were right, we are never gonna get a Battlefront 3, but hey at least were getting another Battlefront, and by DICE, one of my favorite game companies! Here are my ideas and wants for the upcoming game, please feel free to comment and share your own ideas!What I want to see in Star Wars: Battlefront2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is an obvious want for any gamer familiar with DICE's work. I expect to see some good looking visuals as I shoot at clankers and rebel scum.
Improve the AI
Well, if DICE even bothers to add AI, I want them to make the AI actually fight and avoid dangers.
Make a good story
Maybe continue the plot of the 501st(both Republic and Imperial times) or tell us some more stories from the Clone Wars. Also make a campaign for the other factions like the Rebellion and MAYBE the CIS.
A big arsenal of weapons
I don't want to see ever Clone Trooper or Stormtrooper carrying the same gun, I want to see something different. Add in carbines, smgs, lmgs, shotguns(that don't look like the rifle), pistols(that don't

Petition: Release The Black Cauldron Uncut on BluMany people know that The Black Cauldron is one of Disney's most obscure animated films to date. What some may not know was that the movie had scenes too gruesome to be in the movie that they had to be cut to avoid letting the movie get slapped with a PG-13 or R rating. some scenes were seamlessly removed, but the removal of some scenes, namely during the Cauldron-Born sequence (the film's climax), were very noticeable. It is also evident because of a jump cut during said sequence due to the music.Petition: Release The Black Cauldron Uncut on Blu6 months ago in Personal More Like This
The movie would have been released uncut on VHS in the late 80s. However, that had not happened due to the success of Disney's The Little Mermaid.
I am making this petition as a way to ask the Walt Disney Company that if they plan to release The Black Cauldron on Blu-ray Disc any time soon, don't miss on this opportunity to release the movie with the cut scenes restored back into the film. After all, if Warner Brothers can release Little Shop of Horrors on Blu-ray with both the t

-------The Power of Magic-------
When I was a kid, one of the greatest things possible to witness was magic. To me, my dad was a magician, no doubt about it. He could make coins appear from pockets and behind ears. He could guess what card you or your friend chose. He could blow cigarette smoke from his ears.
Actually, that last one was due to having punctured ear drums, so wasn't really magic... but you get what I mean.
Of course, now that I'm older, I know all these tricks myself. They're the easiest ones in the book. I've learned them myself, and occasionally blow the minds of kids who are now at the age I once was when I was being amazed by this apparent 'magic'.
That experience, of seeing something you believe to be utterly impossible become possible, is amazing. It's the reason I love illusionists and magicians, and the reason I've spent most of this insomniatic evening watching videos of Dynamo the magician.

5 Fundamental Skills (by Bobby Myers)5 Fundamental Skills Every Artist Should Master5 Fundamental Skills (by Bobby Myers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(by Bobby Myers)
As an artist, your job is to immerse your viewers into a world that you have built and guide them safely through it. Artists have much in common with storytellers. Storytellers have several tricks that they use to keep their readers coming back for more. Like storytellers, artists can use similar tricks to help them produce more compelling artwork. In this article, we will explain 5 fundamental skills that every artist should master. Let's take a look!
The most important aspect of art to me personally is the composition. It sets the stage for everything else. This is your way to guide and lead the viewer to make them feel as if they are actually in your picture. If this part of the process is not created and controlled properly, everything else can and probably will fal
2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions3 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

OPPOSITES CONTESTSTAR WAR OPPOSITES CONTESTOPPOSITES CONTEST2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Theme/Idea: Create an artwork which shows 2 definite opposites of the Star Wars Universe. It could be...
...two sides of one character (e.g. Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader),
...or two opposing characters (e.g. Obi-Wan Kenobi/Asaji Ventress),
...planets (e.g. Tattoine/Dagobah),
...spacecrafts (e.g. TIE-Fighter/Jedi Starfighter)
Whatever ideas you have, whatever opposites come to your head.
The 2 opposites have to be together on one artwork. So no 'one picture of Anakin Skywalker' and 'another of Darth Vader'. They have to be on the same sheet of paper!
Entrants do not have to be members of this group. So spread the word and tell everyone about this contest.
Every entrant may submit 2 different artworks.
The entry has to be made especially for this contest. So no submitting old artworks!
Character Feature: Shyla ShepardThe seemingly indomitable Shyla Shepard has lived a harsh and tragic past. After losing her family at sixteen to a bloody Batarian pirate attack on an Alliance colony, the young fighter joined the Alliance military only to lose her entire squad in a deadly thresher maw attack. In the years since, these early scars have forged a new identity out of the shattered ruins of the child whose family died on Mindoir. Known for her “tough but fair” approach, Shepard’s fight against the geth incursion broke new grounds for humanity when she became the first human Spectre on the galactic Council’s elite forces. But recent rumors have put in question Shepard’s loyalty to the Alliance forces. Our investigator setup an exclusive interview to delve into the truth behind the legend.Character Feature: Shyla Shepard3 years ago in Personal More Like This

LokiSo, I've been getting a lot of questions on how I made both my first movie Loki armor and helmet and Avenger Loki's costume. Here I'm just going to do one mass explanation so I can link people here and not have to explain ever time.Loki3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First movie Loki:
Armor:I cut up crazy carpets, hot glued them together and then paper mached them. It worked great! But I should have sanded the plastic first because the paper mache didn't stick well. The circles you see are the bottom of pop cans that I cut up and the silver pieces on my shoulders are the sides of those pop cans woven together.
In retospect though, It would have been WAY WAY easier to cut and paint, gloss and then glue together craft foam for the armor. It works oh so much better than plastic. It's a lot easier to work with and move in. Plus, you don't have to do any paper mache. The one issue is if you decide to use it you'd have to reinforce the back with something, I'd just suggest cut and glue fabric.
The Helmet: ....of god...that he

Rise From the Dead
“Where are tonight the sword and its swinger, the holy spells and their singer? Where is the light to scatter the ghosts, the sight of dawn to shatter the frost? Fears can be hidden, and hearts’ fire kindled, but will shadows be caged and demons faced? The curses of liches linger like winds of winter, and wolves howl a hymn for the undead's hunt… who will be safe from the grim reaper’s swing, and who will fall in its grip?”

DON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah BradleyDon't go to art schoolDON'T GO TO ART SCHOOL- By Noah Bradley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The traditional approach is failing us. It's time for a change.
I'VE HAD IT.
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won't do it. Unless you're given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.
I have a diploma from the best public art school in the nation. Prior to that I attended the best private art school in the nation. I'm not some flaky, disgruntled art graduate, either. I have a quite successful career, thankyouverymuch.
But I am saddened and ashamed at art schools and their blatant exploitation of students. Graduates are woefully ill-prepared for the realities of being professional artists and racked with obscene amounts of debt. By their own estimation, the cost of a four year education at RISD is $245,816. As way

Today the bookbinding glue finally arrived at my house, so I will start with the second book on the weekend. Exited? I am ^^
I will make (or at least I will try to make) a video about the binding, but until I upload it it will take a while...
So, what I wanted to ask you:
How shall I do the cover? On the first book there is a steampunk compass rose, so I want to stay at "steampunk themed" travel and was thinking about the following options:
- a map
- a zeppelin
- an astrolabe
- one of your ideas. Do you have a suggestion?
Please comment and let me know which one you want/ if you have another idea.
So, it is time for some stats ^^
Land the book is in at the moment: England
Entries so far: 2, the third is in progress ^^
well then, here is the traveling list:
The ones with a red dot in front of their name should give me their adress as soon as possible, if the book comes to the country you live in and I don't have your adress I will have to d
