Helping a friend fight Breast Cancer I was recently asked by Michael Walker, defyprocrastination, http://defyprocrastination.deviantart.com/ to donate an original piece of artwork for an online art auction. His friend Kristin Brown Williamson recently was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I was honored to help. Here is a link to Kristin's website, which tells a little more of Kristin, and where you can also donate money to help her out. http://www.stayclassy.org/fundraise?fcid=266967Helping a friend fight Breast Cancer1 year ago in Personal More Like This

The auction will begin Nov 14 here: http://www.32auctions.com/organizations/10724/auctions/11937, along with many more art pieces. This is for a good cause, so please visit the auction and put in a bid. Also, I would like to add something special for my deviantart friends. If anybody who has favorited this journal and buys Gorilla Thoughts, I will also include the original Leopard in a Log.
Morrowind FeatureMorrowind Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is my favourite game of all time, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been planning for awhile to put together a game-inspired feature; unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since most Morrowind-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Morrowind is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2002. The central plot concerns the deity Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses.
Lord Voryn Dagoth had been a good friend of Lord Indoril Nerevar, but they tu

Into the Realm
“Evening songs of burning wood and mead and laughter, of blood and hunts and fellowship: our halls echo with memories old and new. A day through forest and field, chasing the smell of spring, a moment above the morning mist to steal a glimpse of seas twinkling on the horizon; an eternity before our gates, in wonderment at the carved quests of heroes, coming alive at a fingertip’s request. Witness a lifetime into the realm… it is quite the adventure.”

You may recognize me. I am Gabriel, archbishop of the Order of the Sun. I work alongside my friend and deacon, Ezekiel, to bring spiritual refuge to your village. While we attempt to remain out of your affairs unless brought to us, we have taken notice of the hardships you’ve endured, as well as the current exodus of many Merchants from the village. There are some sort of politics involved in this, I’m sure, but we will not judge based on that, for my Creator has given me my place for other purposes.

Does anyone have any tips for finding art on Tumblr? I'll copy and paste what I told someone else:
Do you have any tips for finding art? I can hardly find anything. Searching for "mcr art" or something similar yields few results, and searching "my chemical romance" yields WAY too many results and almost no fanart. Plus, when I do find something, half the time I can't tell if the poster actually drew it or not.
Basically I thought I could just search "my chemical romance fanart" or something, but few people use "fanart" or "art" tags. Any advice?
(This is referring to the art blog I mentioned in the poll.)

Just like how the stages differ between the 3DS and Wii U versions of the games, the Trophy Collection will also be different between the two. 3DS will have trophies based around handhelds (with Saria from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as the example shown), while the Wii U version will have console-based trophies.
A Trophy Shop will be found in SSB4, allowing players to buy trophies with either the gold coins earned in-game or with Play Coins.

No Strings Attached (ノンストリングスアタッチヅ Non Suturingusu Atacchidu) is the name of Kuro's Fullbring. The object of his affection and therefore Fullbring focus is the katana passed down within his adoptive Familiy. When the katana is fullbrought, it manifests as a claymore.
No Strings Attached is capable of two types of cuts. One that can injure or kill, or one that can suppress memories.

This elegant, deceptively simple piece is a true eye catcher. I want this hanging on my wall, it's something I'd be proud to show off. It's colors are so subtle but at the same time make a very powerful statement to me. and the patterns are both very Greek and Art Noveau at the same time.
Hebe is only a minor character in my stories but she is the star of this contest thanks to her artist, who just so happens to be named Heba!!
Her other entry in the contest is also worth checking out. It has a very sad feel to it but captures a dramatic feeling and has definite style with that positioning!
