Of Angels and Demons Vol. 1
“Hush, my friends. Let me tell you of those gods whose lore has left our lands, of the long–dead songs of angels and demons; let your hearts brave the ill–luck of broken vows and breathe the influx of borrowed spells. Walk with me on the winds of a victory of kings, and tell me now: whose flock will be crushed under the blow of defeat? Will you bathe in the white solace of the banners of salvation, or burn in the fiery fire of the warriors of damnation?”

Anyway, I wish you all the best for 2013, my dear watchers and other deviants!
I wish you strong health and lot of love - family love, friend love... simply be in touch with those you love and who love you and stay healthy, because it is the most important thing.
I have to say I am devastated. I have troubles to finish my thesis (20 hours left), because we are now dealing with very serious issue in my family, which unfortunately touches both issues I mentioned above - health and family love. I am very sad and my nerves are ruined, I am trembling like an old junkie hard to concentrate, believe me...

To Battle The Horde
“What do we die for, if not family, friends and freedom? We have fled from a crude reality, yet fate and war chase us, shake us like winter winds bully a wooden house. So let us fight evil with bravery, oblivion with willpower, doom to our very last breath: we have risen together, and together we fall. Where but here, at the last outpost of our kingdom, can we defeat the horde?”

End Date: 31st October
Prize Donations Wanted!
Legends-Of-Skyrim is hosting its first contest to celebrate the opening of the group!
The aim of the contest is to write a piece of literature from the point of view of an evil character related to one of Skyrims main quest-lines. A few examples of acceptable characters are: Mercer Frey, Ancano, Alduin, General Tullius/ Ulfric Stormcloak etc.
The evil character can be portrayed in any way you like. Will your piece offer redemption to the character, or were they intending to be evil? Were they working for the greater good but wrongly accused, or maybe they genuinely believed that their evil actions benefited everyone? Your entry can also throw the evil NPC into any situation you want, as long as it is lore friendly, and it can include other NPC's that the evil character would have encountered.
To enter, simply tell us you want to join in this journals comments and fol

How are you? ^^ I hope your 2013 will be full of wonderful Deviations XD *____* and, yeah yeah, also health, money, love etc!
My first year on DA has been wonderful! I love so many categories and here I really appreciate the way Deviants interact each other!
Thank you very much for your words, comments, favs...
I'm trying to give more exposure to those Deviants who, in my opinion, are underappreciated. Is for this reason I began to share every month some deviations! ^^ (Look at my last journals!)
This month I would like to share with you the Deviation I suggested during my first year!
This is a very strange case -->
--> First suggestions: 31st of December (2011) and 1st of January (2012) Last two: 31st of December (2012) and 1st of January (2013), yesterday and today! XD
It means nothing, I know, but it's fuuuun!! *--*

7 TIPS FOR THE 21-YEAR-OLD ME by Bobby Chiu
When I was a student in college working on my skills as a character designer, I’d had periods where I would sit at my desk working as hard as I could but having little to show for my efforts at the end of the day. I remember sitting there surrounded by blank pieces of paper, trying to come up with an amazing style that nobody had ever seen before. I would do one drawing and not be satisfied, so I would lay a new piece of paper over it, re-draw it with slight changes to features here and there. This would still not be good enough so I would put another piece of paper over my revision, make more minor adjustments trying to perfect this new style I was searching for.
I did this for weeks on end, tweaking and polishing over and over, working hard every day. But in the end, did I come up with a brand new style, something amazing that

Goals, Ambitions and Commissions (A Lending Hand)IMPORTANT UPDATE 6/6/14: This will be the most important update for this journal. By the time August comes, i will have exceeded my goal of $200 in sales by $106!!! Whether those who bought a print was to support my dream or just enjoyed the art that i provided, thank you so much for buying something from me. Knowing that there are people out there that like my work so much that they're willing to pay for it is an incredible feeling. I've made some connections through this that i would have never had the opportunity without. On top of that, i got a job as an usher for the theater that's opening across the street! I start training next Saturday (14th). I'm both nervous and excited, mainly nervous because of my social anxiety, but this will be a great experience to help me with my filmmaking career having to be around so many people.

Characters I Love: SupergirlCharacters I Love: Supergirl8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Jenn from Dangerous Ladies @ DA
I had been thinking about doing something like this for a while. Outlining why I enjoy certain characters and who better to start out with than my favorite superheroine, Supergirl.
I feel slightly bad that I can't recall when I first learned of Supergirl's existence. After much thinking (and head pounding) my best guess is it was with the Superman: The Animated Series episode Little Girl Lost. Now before I was a Supergirl fan I was (still am but as I say, Kara is easier on the eyes lol) a Superman fan. I know people call him boring, a boy scout, but Superman is the archetype superhero. Personally, I like the idea of an absolute good guy hero so Supes always will be one of my favorite heroes. So as a much younger Mad Man (minus my pen though) I watched STAS and fed my growing love of the DCAU. Then we get to Little Girl Lost and I meet Supergirl.
The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )

Everybody knows that abstract art can be art,
and most people know that they may not like it,
even if they understand there's another purpose to it.
Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only
what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.
