Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
From the Exorcist through Paranormal Activity, generation after generation of “believers” seem to have come to the reali

A Year Or So Of Square ImagesHi,A Year Or So Of Square Images1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I removed tons of crap from my local collection of my creations and ended up with a few possibly interesting ones. Apparently dA journals don't support the <table> tag, only those unwieldy thumb tables with ridiculously small thumbs, so I made an external page with a nice layout and lynx to dA pages:
Btw some of the images are older than a year or so, I just decided to adopt squareness about a year ago so I would have to worry about only a single printing format, and then decided to squarify a few older ones as well in order to preserve them for posterity. I've noticed I haven't been making much greatness lately, which is a motivational issue and one which I will have to deal with myself or get a "real" job.
Below are the thumbnails anyway for your convenience and delight. The web page looks a lot better though!
Have fun, be amazed or whatever applies

art theft spread aroundhttp://vk.com/art.ideasart theft spread around2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I guess some of you might have already seen this in loish 's journal, but I think we should spread this around.
Basically, this community is using a BUNCH of artists' works (my has already been taken down, since I've asked and linked to it), but from those I've recognized the community still uses loish, andrahilde , Apofiss, andaglas and a whole lot of other DA artists' drawings for their purposes, without A SINGLE CREDIT.
They even make (made) magnets for selling using the works.
More of that, as I've been trying to contact the admins of this group, and I've been told that "Oh, don't worry, nobody was making millions using your work" and "Don't worry, there were only a few magnet sells and the community doesn't do it anymore blah blah". As I tried to make them understand they have NO RIGHTS for using other deviants' works whatever the hell they want without giving the original artist credit I got told that " I do never erase the artist

This is amazing. It turns out Altair, Ezio, and Desmond are NOT from the same blood line. People assume they're related because they all have Eagle Vision, but everyone has that potential locked away. It's just that Altair, Ezio, Haythem, Connor, and Desmond (or more) have unlocked this ability somehow.
You guys seriously need to see the vid. It's amazing.
Aaaand it seems like they might be doing another ancestor for AC4--or it's simply for the next gen of Assassins. It's hard to tell right now, but it's amazing to find this stuff out.

Art BooksAlvaroArte asked me if I could suggest some books on realistic drawing and concept art which was timely as I've been thinking about writing a post about it. So, in no particular order here are some books I recommend.Art Books2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Keys to Drawing (Dodson) - A lot of my early drawing lessons a knowledge was based in this book. Great exercises.
Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain (Edwards) - A cornerstone art book, it (re)teaches you how to really observe your subject with various exercises.
Imagination Station (Kistler) - While likely not applicable to you guys, it's a wonderful art book for little kids who find it fun and teaches good art principles.
Understanding Light and Color:
Alla Prima (Schmid) - This is not a how-to painting book but delves into how to think and understand light, color, edges, etc. My painting bible.
Imaginative Realism (Gurney) - This author of Dinotopia does a good job addressing how to approach realistically painting subjects that do

I would like to state how community flow is really important for me. No, not only for me but to many people. Just many people aren't aware of this.
I think the interactions between the artist and watchers - and whole community relationships thing - is one of the most vital parts that our creations exist. Writers have fans, travelers, artists, illustrators, companies, fashion bloggers etc. and so on. You may call it as a "fanbase", thus I prefer to not call because "fans" and "fanbase" has a lot of negative stereotypes and image about blindly screaming "minors". I'd prefer to name differently, because I do not view them as minors. Absolutely. I view them as an every worthy human on equal worth as the creator and that's a fact. They are just guests to
Warm Bodies ...Warm Bodies ...2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Watch it. Seriously.
I just got back from the cinemas, where I caught Warm Bodies with my bestie from LASALLE. I know what you're thinking, that the movie didn't look that great. Yet another zombie movie amongst the throngs of supernatural the media flings at us, yet another teenage romance to appeal to every young adult with a pulse. And I will be the first to admit that when I first heard the outline of the story - a cute young man who just happens to be undead falls in love with a young girl at first sight - I was skeptical. I assumed it would become a rehash of Twilight, and I just got over the nausea of seeing those posters cluttering all the billboards.
However, after trawling through the trailers and finding them appealing and funny, I decided that the movie was worth a shot. It advertises itself as a quirky, humorous take on zombies, throwing in a mix of teenage romance

Sighing softly waiting for your friends to show up for your birthday, You were turning (age). You were also excited because your friends said they had a surprise/s for you. You wondered what it might be, maybe some anime or new clothes they would try to get you too wear. You were drawn out of your thoughts when you heard pounding on your door.

Big Ben ResponseA succinct summary of the recent complaints:Big Ben Response3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"You somehow magically gained the ability to draw near-photorealistic buildings overnight and you choose to use this amazing newfound skill to draw a building in the background? Get serious dude."
This is a redrawing of Big Ben (using a different reference photo BTW) to show that I am actually capable of drawing architecture just fine. I only used the computer for the poster version because I wanted more control over it.
I'm gonna be leaving Big Ben the way it is in the poster. There's nothing to "own up to" about it other than saying "sorry I used such a recognizable image source of a popular and well known landmark as reference." I did not trace.
Curious that so many of the people crying "copyright infringement" over me using reference are also the same people who take my comics and make "parodies" of them by cutting, rearranging, and re-uploading th

And this IS watercolor painting. 100% watercolor. Kthnxbye.
I've been a lot in traditional art society, and just... I spotted this artwork. No, at the first it was a photograph for me. For really long time I wasn't interested to take a look deeper at that common photograph until I got bothered by loads of people to take a peek on it.
That really knocked me out from chair, is not the fact it's 100% painting but it's watercolor. I've seen 100% photo looking a like acrylics, oils and really mixed medium ways of paintings but... watercolor alone? And that's from simple watercolor "squares" palette.
I'm not really fan of photo-realistic paintings, I do love real life paintings with very artistic touch and with it's own original style... but for this one I have lots of "wow" for this artist to master watercolor on insane level of skill by using simple techni
Favourite artistsI could do a poll about this but I feel like when I did I just got people posting a whole bunch of icons and not much explanationFavourite artists2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Who are your favourite artists? (Either here on dA or outside this site/the internet)
What do they do that inspired(s) you to watch them?
Post as many as you can but could you also explain as to why they are your favourite?
Do you feel they are a reason you continue to work harder at your chosen craft?
I'm not trying to be nosy really, just curious. It's easy to post a bunch of icons of people who may have done something you've liked but I'm looking for the artists who are your ultimate favourites.
The ones whose artwork/works inspire you, help you, give you feels, and excite you when their work shows up in your inbox.
Take all the time you need on this lol no rush to answer.

He was absolutely so very sexy! Having short dark brown hair with an oddball curl sticking out from the top of his head. He wore a tan army suit, with black shoulder cuffs. Also a brown undershirt, and a dark blue tie. The color of his pants matched the main color of his army jacket, then the last thing you noticed he had on was his army boots which were about two shades darker then his hair. He was amazing. Then you realized how much luggage he had! There must have been at least 6 or more bags at least they were small though. You wondered if he would accept you, even though him being a android and all. He looked pretty much human no flaws at all. You reached out to touch his face but then spotted a piece of paper. You picked it up and read it.
