"b-big brother... h-help..." she whispered, but her calls went unanswered. She kept telling her self that this was all just a dream and she would wake up in her bed at home. Oh what a bad dream this was. She closed her eyes tightly and wished to wake up. The door opened and some one walked in. She opened her eyes and saw Nicolai. He was smiling at her.
"Hello," he crouched down next to her, "here let me help you up." He reached out to pick her up, she flinched and tried to roll away. He frowned and picked her up any way. "You're mine rather you like it or not!" He placed her on the bed, "don't cry." Nicolai touched her cheek and smiled down at her. "Marry me~" She shook her head, which made him smirk, "I wont stop until you do~" he grabbed her wrists and held them above her

Was 1979 the most glorious year in world history?
I will give you three compelling arguments for why the answer is yes. For starters, it inspired the best pop–rock song about coming of age ever recorded: The Smashing Pumpkins’s 1979. Second, it is the year that gave us two groundbreaking developments in sci–fi filmmaking: Ridley Scott’
I don't fave watermarks.I’ve harped on about this before and I’m going to do it again…..and again and again…..until people stop doing it.I don't fave watermarks.4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I do not fave pictures that have watermarks right across them.
This isn’t me being monumentally arrogant and thinking that I alone faving a piece of work bestows upon it some kind of greatness. This is just me having an artistic eye.
If you’ve slaved to create the most astounding piece of work to have ever graced the galleries of deviantart, something that puts all your peers to shame and will remain a benchmark that others aim to match for years to come…..and then across the middle of it you decide to slap a watermark that you spent 5 minutes farting out: you just f**ked up your artwork. You have added something that detracts from my enjoyment of the piece and I’m not going to fave it.
There are a number of brilliant artists out there who I’m on the verge of unfollowing, simply because it irks me so much to see a

:iconcalculatus: This guy decided to make a breakdown of abilities of Blaze and Penn for me and there are some crazy stuff here!
Check it out!!!))
You gave us a few of Blaze's and Penn's abilities in the past but I decided that it wasn't good enough for me, so I fleshed their powers out some more by taking their skills and physical and spiritual properties of fire into account.
·Fire flows in his blood, making him immune to all foreign contaminants such as poison and disease.
o This would lead to regenerative healing factor since the flames would be constantly cauterizing his wounds. This is kind of like how phoenixes heal themselves.
Fire elementals are abnormally strong since fire spiritually represents strength.
·He holds a symbiotic bond with fire, and can emit* it from his body through fire breath, explosions, flame armor, rocket-propelle

Angelo Sotira (aka spyed)
Co-Founder & CEO of deviantART
I'm closing in on 11 years of running deviantART and if there's one thing I know for sure it's that when you guys are right, you're right. And that at dA, ego and our own sense of self worth comes second to how much we care about deviantART and our collective love of what we represent together. Prepare for me to be humiliated.
Before we get started, here's to fulfilling my promise to publishing the deviations made by akreon and vesner to the entire community for all to see, no matter what they were, after we invited them to get an inside look in to deviantART HQ and our operations. and maybe another cuz they're kinda scathing!
Some of you are wondering what the heck I'm talking about. So let's skip to the punch line and then talk about how we got here:

"Never Be Ashamed"
I couldn't help myself. The moment I saw a name placard for "Steven Blum" my nostalgia and long-standing love of all things LucasArts Adventure Games flung my body into auto-pilot and directed me to that booth. In front of him were posters and lithographs of various characters from recent anime recently localized into English, but I inadvertently dumped his mind back into the 90's when I lost all decorum and totally fangasm'd over his role voicing Ludger Brink in The Dig.
"Wow," Steven reeled at my impulsive outburst. "That was...so long ago."
It was spring 2010, just one week before my transfer to the biggest AAA project in our publisher's history. I was at the Wizard World comic convention in Anaheim California. I knew there was going to be celebrity, but not the rockstars that defined my youth. Being a c
best ways to keep up with me!so i recently realized i like twitter.best ways to keep up with me!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
i like it for the fact that it keeps all the updates under notices. it's limit of size for messages helps us all keep our questions and thoughts concise, and it's easy to follow up on stuff
so, if you want a quick and easy way to ask questions, and keep updated add me
@stjepansejic on twitter
you can also add me on facebook , but that thing is a mess
i would like to reply all the questions here, but with the sheer amount of works, and galleries and notes it is getting really hard to follow up on things.
so it is an easy way to get any answers you may be after.
now, as for chapter 5, i will start it off in march, but it won't go full speed before mid april. by that point i will have cleared all the previously accepted projects and past that point i won't be taking on more work for hire stuff because... well, your support made it possible to actually focus

Realm-of-Fantasy is proud to present our So You think you can Design an Logo? Contest.
With all the excitement about logos in deviantART lately,
we figured what better time than now to have the community design one.
So you think you can design a Logo? You think you've got what it takes?
Ok, well here's your chance to prove it.
RoF is growing larger everyday, and we have become the Largest Fantasy and Sci-fi Art Gallery on deviantART.
We feel it is time to re-brand to properly reflect the size, depth and genre of our group.
We thought what better way to celebrate this than to ask you to be apart of this, and have the redesign as a contest theme.
Your Fantasy artwork has inspired so many people through the years, and we would be honored if it was your artwork that defined us.

StarCraft II is the hot tournament videogame that just may breakthrough as the harbinger of the esports phenomenon and one of the great cultural game-changers of all time.
Midnight in Anaheim. Caffeinated casters boom rapid fire commentary rattling the packed hall. Elite Starcraft players from around the globe execute complex strats that would have made Rommel the Desert Fox himself proud. 20,000 are in attendance, on the edge of their seats, and cheering as loudly as any soccer match as they watch the 30-foot screens hanging from the rafters. Another four and a half million are watching the streams live. The feeling is that of an NCAA Final Four game, set in a European soccer stadium, somehow shoehorned into a casino showroom in Las Vegas. It’s all of the skill, the fan devotion and the spectacle anyone could pos

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject
Artwork survival guidePrelude.Artwork survival guide7 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are mistakes you will regret forever. Among them are a lot of brainless actions that pertain to your artwork. I will sum up a few for you to avoid. Fortunately, I haven't made all of them myself (yet) but also collected a few from other artists.
Save a lot of files.
Don Seegmiller says he saves up to one hundred or more per painting. If your disk space is limited, you can later burn them to DVD, but you'll be thankful to have a file to go back to if all goes wrong. Save it externally, too, if you can.
Keep those saved files around.
There's no characteristic pigment or stroke to a piece of digital art. Anyone could have produced what you have. The only safe way to prove you are the original creator (in court, if necessary) is to keep files in working resolution, with any layers and whatnot. What the negative is to photographers, that original file is to you.
Always save the copy first.
Before making destructive changes like cropping, always save a new file first, or you w
