Thanks to all those who took the time to vote for our next contest subject!  It was a close call, but in the end, the ENDINGS won!   So welcome to our fifth contest...


DRAWN TO ENDINGS



Here is What It’s About...



Create a traditional or digital work of art (based on our theme) from your favourite live action (non-animated) TV show or Movie!  (Please remember - no photomanips)

'Drawn to Endings' :   Draw a scene that represents 'Ending' from a live action TV show or Movie.   Here are some ideas... Your drawing can represent 'ending' as in death, the ending of a relationship, the ending of a war, the ending of a chapter in someones life... etc.  It can involve any number of characters from your favourite show as long as it represents 'Ending' in some form.   Your artwork can be based on an actual scene from the show or a scene you create using characters from the show.  Here are a couple of examples (from our admin's galleries)...

He Will Knock Four Times by Jellyneau - From Doctor Who - When he heard the four knocks, the Doctor knew it was the end of this regeneration.  

Words by Jellyneau   - From Supernatural - Chuck literally spelled out ‘THE END’, and it was.  The end of the apocalypse.

Usual Suspects by TheNeenster  -  From Supernatural - The ending of an era.



ENTERING THE CONTEST:



1.  You must be a member to enter - but it's super easy to become a member... just join!

2.  Entries can be traditional or digital art (no photomanips please) and must be based on a live action TV show or Movie (not animated).

3.  You can enter up to three times (though only one entry per person can win)

4.  Entries must have been originally submitted to dA after March 30, 2013.  The contest ends June 15th, 2013.

5.  In your description you'll need to do the following:

:)  Comment on your work being part of this contest - you might say something like... "This was drawn for the 'Drawn to Endings’ contest being put on by 'Live Action TV & Movie Art'  -  :iconliveactiontvmovieart:



:)  Include the name of the Movie or TV show your drawing, painting, etc. is from :teevee:.   Extra points for adding the names of the characters featured in the scene.



:)  Comment on the scene:  If it's not clear, explain how your scene represents the theme 'Ending’'.  NOTE:  We really take your explanation into account... especially if it is a toss up between your work and another person’s work.  Spend a bit of time on the explanation and it may well be worth it!



6.  When you submit your art, please put it in the 'Drawn to Endings' Contest folder.

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 shooting all three of the visually spectacular The Lord of the Rings movies at once. Creating the rise of the epic fantasy with a scale never before seen featuring breathtaking locations, grand battles, and stunning special effects, the trilogy’s blockbuster success ensured the film industry never looked back.


But for some that is not enough. For those who have read the books, seen the movies (repeatedly), thrown hobbit themed parties, what’s left?



The ultimate tribute, the one to rule them all—Cosplay!


This is what truly separates the real elves, wizards, and hobbits from the rest. One does not simply walk into Tolkien cosplay, it is a long and peril filled journey. Luckily for us a few brave souls have undertaken the quest and brought us their best Bilbos, Frodos, Gandalfs, Galadriels, Thorins, and co.


Get ready for second breakfast because a cosplay feast awaits.

hoo boy.

Hello there, girls and boys and Goblins and RBCs and assorted Dear Readers.

I'm really very sorry GND updates have slowed to a trickle, nay, a Chinese water-drip trick, just as we hit what is pretty much the epic-est storyline I have up my sleeve for the moment. There are some incompressible times issues in coordinating with my various wonderfully skilled but also busy and much imposed-upon colour sorceresses, and these are pages that can't quite be dashed off quickly, what with the Costume Porn and getting certain Significant Looks just right... Besides that personally, I have had little time to spare on them (or certain long-ago planned commissions, *cough*) this semester. I've been working on volume 2 of ''Alyssa'' for the French BD market, and am kinda nose-to-the-grindstone, blinkered by the deadline on that. Not that it's not pretty fun, I think we've improved the gag writing and I am very happy to meet enthused readers at the various book fairs I've been to. Volume 1 has won a couple of prizes and, rumour has it before the official sales figures are reported, is selling well. Which is all a whole lot of yay.

My website, blog, and GND have been outrageously neglected. I'm looking at a frantically busy month of June to wrap this album up, and then, hopefully, I can pay attention to all these other things and indulge in geekiness this summer.

I am nonetheless very contrite, because it always seemed to me that an unspoken part of the clause in doing webcomics properly is maintaining updates; and because this stuff is a self-feeding cycle where updates mean comments mean happy artist glow mean more inspiration and zeal to carry on mean more updates. And I used to be quite capable of splendidly ignoring RL responsibilities and suchlike to gleefully doodle fanarts, but it seems I must take note, aghast, that some creeping sense of priorities has seeped through the brickwork, and rerouted my energies slightly more towards the ''paid and career-furthering work'' engine, not to mix metaphors. Whoddathunkit.
Also, lets not be cute, tumblr happened. Without having one of my own yet even, daaaaamn.

Slightly muted Inner Fangirl or no, I do feel I owe myself, you, the characters, and this 6-year (!!) project a bit more than just letting inspiration dry up in the midst of Other Things To Do and eventually dropping it. By hook or by crook, I'm gonna bring this ship* to safe port somehow.** That's sorta a promise.
I hope most of you will still be here for that. And again, I am very sorry, for invested and caring readers, if the little patch of fandom that is GND has been unrewarding of late.

Thanks for your patience and all the comments that keep me buzzed, and I hope I'll have something for you soon. There's a juicy page in the colouring pipeline at the mo. In the meantime, do enjoy the high-class drama and epic visuals going down over at AsheRhyder 's, because I sure am.

(Also someONE I shall not name so as not to throw him to the wolves, kinda volunteered building a wiki page to keep track of all the GND characters. Updates on that project eagerly anticipated!)

Cheers all.

*(In this case that was a metaphorical ship, but then we all know which 'ship I mean by that also. Nudge nudge wink wink say no more. :P )
**(I have similar good intentions regarding a certain old unfinished fanfic of mine also.... I know, I know.)

*Blows the dust off my front page*
Hey guys! It's been a while since I've updated my journal. I have some wonderful news to share.
I'm going to be working at the Walt Disney Animation Studio as a visual development trainee! It's been a dream of mine to work as an artist at Disney feature since I was a little girl and I can't believe it's actually happening. I'm extremely happy to start and I can't wait to meet all the amazing people who work at Disney and absorb as much as my mind can absorb. Woo!

So I commissioned this fabulous girl to do this fabulous fatty of my cat Wicket:
Wicket by MinjiXMuu-chan
And I would like to commission like...a billion more from other people. Because I am kind of a crazy cat lady. So um, if you draw cute animal graphics for a reasonable price and think you'd be willing to draw him too let me know :O I want to collect a bunch!

If "teacup" Himalayans were a real thing, he'd be one. But they're not so he's just my tiny boy.

EDIT: I'm not really in the market for anything other than cute animal graphics, so I'm looking for artists who specialize in those. I understand your friend might draw amazing people portraits or whatever, but I'm not looking for those right now. So please if you or a friend specialize in cute animal graphics, you're the links I'd like :) Everything else, not right now please.

THANKSGIVING JOURNAL

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 22, 2014, 12:36 PM


No features today. For once in my life here on DA, this time i want to show all my true love to all people who are supporting me here. Only a few are doing it since i joined DA, some of them never wrote a comment, but always faved every single new work. The rest always do it, so is cool, because im always curious to know what people feel watching it, from the images to the concepts.

But the real thank you is for all the people who hate my guts. Not here, well, here there´re a lot of arrogant assholes, or people who seem to have a lot of free time and are always ready to write stupid critics without a base, etc etc.... the funny ones.

If you know me, i really never give a fuck about good or bad comments, faves, views... Numbers are... numbers. Today is a great day for me, because finally, after a hard working year, i made real a dream. Life so strange, the 2012 was so hard for me, no money to pay bills, i was so close to be a homeless, sometimes i had to choose to spent my money for to eat... or to paint. Last year change it all. Now im feel so lucky to live the life i always wanted to live, paying my bills making all the things i love, after years of trying it so hard.

So thank you, motherfuckers. All the haters, all the people who doubt me, all the people who tried to make money with my stuff, the liars, the industry, all the judges of contests who told me i´ll never sell my stuff painting that horrible and disgusting things.

You all fail. Without your help, maybe i stopped to paint years ago. Thanks to all the punks who made me feel at home and gave me the values of the do it yourself, the spirit of rebellion and the FUCK YOU attitude. Thanks to all the dj´s from the Bronx who created a culture from nothing, a real inspiration. Thanks to the graffiti writers of my hood for let me know art. And thank you, money, for let me know you´re the real devil and i dont need you for to be happy and made me see the meaning of life and show me how beautiful life can be.

I feel so good today. Maybe i´ve never felt so good in my life. So.. time  to celebrate it.

If you´ve readed it all, please check this one

and you´ll understand better what im talking about. Cheers.

Keep on rocking my brothers and sisters.

So. I have some news.

"New York Times bestselling author of the LEGEND series Marie Lu's new fantasy trilogy THE YOUNG ELITES, in a Renaissance-like world where young children who survive the blood fever are often gifted with god-like powers, three rival societies battle for supremacy, in a major deal, for publication in fall 2014, to Jen Besser at Putnam Children's, by Kristin Nelson at Nelson Literary Agency (World)." (via Publisher's Marketplace)

There it is! The Young Elites. I drew some pics and pinned some Pinteresting things:

Young Elites art and details

Think X-Men meets Assassin's Creed 2 meets Game of Thrones. Those elements are all in there somewhere, mashed together into literary guacamole with a big keyboard-shaped spoon. (That was a terrible analogy. I apologize. Sort of.)

I cannot express my excitement at working with Team Putnam/Penguin again. I cannot. They are a team of Young Elites with all sorts of crazy powers. And Agent Kristin is a Superwoman who guided this little author through some seriously whacked out early versions of the story. Luff. :heart:

"Whacked out early versions, you say?" Yes, The Young Elites and I went through some growing pains before I managed to kick this story into line.

About a year ago, I decided I wanted to write a fantasy series. I grew up reading almost exclusively fantasy and science fiction, and the very first (thankfully unpublished) manuscript I ever finished in high school was a fantasy. So I always knew I would head in this direction. I came up with the initial idea for The Young Elites in early 2012 and excitedly wrote a few chapters. I tossed it. I tried again. I tossed it again. I did this several more time over the span of the next year or so, until I'd probably written enough words to have filled an entire book. Still, I couldn't "find it." I had characters, I had a premise, and I had a world . . . but I didn't have a story. Not until a few months ago did I finally figure out my problem.

I had the wrong protagonist.

Picking the right protagonist for your story is one of the most important decisions you can make as a writeróand it was a decision I never had trouble with for Legend. Day and June were my protagonists the instant the story sparked in my mind. They came fully formed, their personalities and attitudes complete and their character arcs ready to go. I took off running with them.

With TYE, I didn't have this same ease. I started out telling the story from the point of view of a boy we'll call Faketagonist. Faketagonist had a cast of (hopefully) interesting secondary characters swirling around him . . . but he himself was bland and uninspired. Too normal. Too 'nice'. Things happened to him and around himóbut he never took action. Faketagonist waited a lot and relied on too many people. He was not protagonist material.

Then, I heard her. Off to Faketagonist's side was a secondary character, a girl with snow white hair and a missing eye, a dark past and an even darker character arc. I hesitated to give her the lead role, to be honest. Adelina Amouteru is a bit like a teenage female version of Magneto and Darth Vader. She is not a nice girl. She has twisted opinions about the world and the people around her. Day (from Legend) was a boy who walked in the light, but Adelina is a girl who walks in darkness.

And I worry, because even though Adelina and I are very different in many ways, I see pieces of myself in her that I'm not proud of. We all have our dark side, don't we? (Okay fine, maybe you don't, but please nod along and humor me. Plus, we need to get together and work on nurturing your inner mwahaha.)

There are also superheroes, supervillains, royalty, bad boys with hearts of gold, bad boys with hearts of dead puppies, good boys who drink their tea with a spoonful of cunning, good girls who make mistakes, badass girls, badass boys, boys and girls who do stupid things, smart things, and everything in between. Oh, and magic. Naturally.

This is, of course, all what I'm picturing in my head. I'm not done with the story yet. And I'm working VERY hard to make sure that this book doesn't make CSI's Horatio Caine go, "Well, it looks like the Young Elites are nothing more than . . . *sunglasses* the Young Disappointments. EEEEEYYEEEEAAAH!"

That's about all I have to say for now. I hope you guys will like it. I can't wait for you all to read it in Fall 2014! Until then, I'll be writing furiously and hyperventilating into a paper bag.

P.S. After Faketagonist was removed from his leading role post, he managed to pull himself together and turn into a surprisingly fun secondary character. He has congratulated Adelina and now lives on set in his secondary character trailer.
