Who is Dr. Strange?
Dr Stange colored by DM-P18

The faces of Ethan Hawke, Johnny Depp, Jon Hamm, Joaquin Phoenix, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto have been click bait for a thousand sites waiting for news of the star of the next Marvel movie franchise. According to Mike Fleming over at Deadline it now looks like Marvel have finally landed their perfect

Art For a Cause UPDATE: The art book is complete please check out the Indiegogo campaign hereArt For a Cause1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Game artists from around the world are uniting to create an art book to support Kevin Griffith's (CowAndCheese) battle with terminal lung cancer.
Kevin Griffith is a senior artist on the Diablo 3 team at Blizzard and has been fighting a rare and ruthless form of cancer known as Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma (ASPS).
The art book will feature original fan art from Kevin's favourite games and everything about this project screams deviantART to me! We have a ridiculously talented community of artists and I'm calling on YOU to put your skills to work for an amazing cause.
All proceeds from the campaign will be donated to cover medical costs for

I’m rather irked that anyone would think that, after all this time, I would actually plagiarise anything. Parody for the sake of comedy, sure, but not flat-out copy.
Let me tell you what I know: the creative process grants you access to infinite possibilities. As such, I have never, ever felt the need to copy someone’s work. If I am aware of something that exists, I veer away from it. Partly because it would just feel wrong to steal someone else’s ideas, but mostly because….it’s boring! I get a kick out of devising new things. It’s one of the most enjoyable and satisfying endeavours you can pursue.

"Scars can come in handy. I have one myself above my left knee that is a perfect map of the London Underground."—Prof. Albus Dumbledore
Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

''Bahrainham''?Unsurprisingly, after the murder of the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists last week: media hysteria is higher than normal, with news networks reporting on virtually nothing but counter terrorism plans.''Bahrainham''?7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Joke news network Fox was clearly so caught up in it all that they went into full reality meltdown, claiming that parts of Britain had become no-go areas for non-Muslims, and that “Muslim Religious Police” were patrolling parts of London, attacking anyone who did not conform to Islamic law.
Birmingham, they said, was a city populated purely by Muslims, and people not of that faith just didn’t go there…..which was news to me. I live just outside it, I venture in on a weekly basis and, as far as I am aware, I am not a Muslim.
The, clearly bat-sh*t, journalist that made these insane accusations was immediately pointed to and laughed at by, well, everybody, and went on to apologise for his “terrible error”.

Leave the fandom? ME?!?Bronies, we need to talk.Leave the fandom? ME?!?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, so yesterday someone sent me a note on Deviant Art reminding me how there's been some drama in the brony fandom lately and asked if I had ever planned on quote unquote "leaving the fandom".
First of all: Why am I getting this as a note on DA? Seriously, this isn't Tumblr guys, send me stuff like that on Tumblr, no one talks to me on Tumblr!
Second: Oooooooh, surprise surprise, there's drama in the fandom and let's completely ignore the drama that's been going on in other fandoms and the fact that there has been drama in this fandom ever since day 1 pretty much! (anypony remember the 4chan wars?)
Third: ME LEAVE THE FANDOM?!?! REALLY?!?
Look guys, I know a lot of people in the brony fandom have "left" us or have just stopped making fan-content due to either having to move on with their life or they just don't like it anymore and that has you down but why am I being asked if I'm leaving the fandom? I
That birthday thingThat birthday thing1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well if it hasn't been made abundantly clear already, everyone reading this should know that I have virtually no decent people skills. For some reason saying a simple "thank you" is as far out of reach to me as the moniker of Best Pony is to Diamond Tiara. But unlike Diamond Tiara, I do not hide behind the excuse of "my father is rich and therefore all of my detestable behavior should be excused, so damn cool your jets I only insulted Scootaloo that one time."
So, to make this as impersonal as possible, I would like to thank each and every person who sent me a "happy birthday" message, through a comment, Note, Shoutbox shout, YouTube video link or otherwise
And believe me when I say there were a lot of you.
A lot of you.

No one expected the house Hiccup Horrendous Haddock was sorted into.
He was from a Viking Clan after all. Viking's were honest, loyal, proud, brave, united, and loud, of course. They could swing hard and swig harder. Vikings were Gryffindors and Hufflepuffs and to be sorted into any other house proved you lacked True Vikings Spirit.
Vikings didn't go into Ravenclaw. That was a place for Greeks and scholars and those pompous Englishmen.
Vikings certainly didn't go into Slytherin. A Roman would be more suited for such a place of backward dealings, craftiness and lies.
Hiccup could handle the shock of his classmates (a Horrendous Haddock? In Slytherin? How could he ever expect to take over as chief?) and he could handle his father's disappointment in those short-worded letters. Hiccup was always a bit of a loner and the Slytherin lifestyle catered to that just fine. Everyone in Slytherin minded their own business more or

A huge thing happened that I already thought to be impossible: I got into the University of Applied Sciences (in digital-oriented graphic design) from a reserve spot, and I got the freaking notice less than a week from the start of the semester (Wednesday 20.8.). I had to go through a crapload of preparations, as I wasn't waiting for that one at all.
The image I got from the entry exam results was that I'm too far off in the reserve to get inside realistically, but apparently one person didn't accept the spot and I was chosen as the only reserve student. So many mixed emotions right once I got that, but now I can say it's all just nothing but joy. Now I know what I'll be mainly doing for the next four years, it all sounds very promising even from the art perspective.
It was the only school I applied to, and I was all prepared f

*RP Rules and EtiquetteWell now, it seems that a lot of people on DA, and across the internet for that matter, have a huge misconception about what Role Playing actually is, let alone the fact that they have no idea how to do it properly. Most of those who are clueless are children (under 18) who not only have no idea what they are doing, but also clearly had no proper instruction, or very bad instruction, on how to Role Play correctly, let alone proper Role Play etiquette. The rest of the clueless ones that are actually adults are one of four things: generally ignorant and need proper instruction, received bad instruction on how to RP, are arrogant jerks who think they are the center of the RP, or are drama queens seeking attention and will throw a childish tantrum if they don't get their way.*RP Rules and Etiquette3 years ago in Personal More Like This
