My deviantART Story! A Whole Decade on dA!WOW! I cannot believe that tomorrow makes ten years… TEN YEARS on deviantART. I took a minute and thought about where I was and what I was doing ten years ago… For one, I was a freshman in high school. I was taking a bunch of really hard classes and was not loving life, angsty teenager and all that jazz . I was still reading and writing, though at the time I was probably writing Harry Potter fanfics instead of my own, original stories.My deviantART Story!

I remember I had first picked up photography as a hobby the year before. I had found my father’s old Yaschia FILM slr and had not a CLUE what I was doing with it (I found it again last week and I still have no idea LOL). I went with my mom to the drug store, picked up some film, and started snapping photos. This photo of my old dog, Corey, is the only one I still have in my gallery from that film strip (yes, I actually went to a STORE to get film DEVELOPED!):

Featured Arts: The Realm of FantasyPlease support the artworks of these artists. I hope you enjoy this.Featured Arts: The Realm of Fantasy2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Fantasy art is a genre of art that depicts magical or other supernatural themes, ideas, creatures and settings. While there is some overlap with science fiction, horror and other speculative fiction art, there are unique elements not generally found in other forms of speculative fiction art. Fantasy art is strongly linked to fantasy fiction. Indeed fantasy art pieces are often intended to represent specific characters or scenes from works of fantasy literature.

Odyssey Update 1This first weekend of reading and re-reading Odyssey selections was just as intensely rewarding as last year. I am incredibly grateful to once again be able to share this process with all of you. Having Clive Barker on board for Odyssey II is truly an enlightening and educative experience. There is nothing more thrilling than reading through each of the entries and then re-reading the chapters that truly resonate and carry with them immense writing skill. This story could have gone in so many worthy directions and genres, and there was no end to the creativity and storytelling skill on so many of the submissions.Odyssey Update 13 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

I'm not talking about normal "DRWVV MAH OC" clutter, which we all deal with! And that doesn't really both me, since it's so misdirected and wrong that you can just ignore it.

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

Jaevid is a halfbreed, which is a terrible thing to be in Maldobar. The human kingdom of Maldobar has been at war with the gray elf nation of Luntharda for two decades, making his mixed racial background very taboo. Frowned upon by both humans and elves as a genetic mistake, Jae feels he has no place to belong—until a chance encounter lands him in the academy for dragonriders and changes his destiny. As Jae begins his first year of training as a fledgling rider, he quickly learns who his true friends are. He finds lasting companions

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

The Russian translation was published just two days ago.
