The truth about the 'KONY 2012' hype"No one wants a boring documentary on Africa. Maybe we have to make it pop, and we have to make it cool.

The Upcoming Thumbnail GridThe Upcoming Thumbnail Grid8 months ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On DeviantArt, your deviations are paramount, and we want to present them in the best way possible, even in thumbnail form. Over the past few months, we've been working on a new thumbnail grid that maintains the integrity of your deviations, no matter their dimensions or content types. Our goal is to be better at displaying art than any other site on the Internet.
Problems We’re Solving
We can do better than the current thumbnail grid, which includes uneven or irregular gaps between deviations. These gaps don't have any visual rhythm, causing your eyes to jump all over the place. Some content types, including literature, journals, pixel art, and emoticons, don’t look ideal. Our new grid focuses on fixing these issues while modernizing the look and feel of DeviantArt.
Below are some concept designs that represent one avenue we’re exploring. (These are works-in-progress and not final. Also note that the category menu

It'll be a 12-fold sketch-a-thon with equal parts randomness and equal parts YOU! Ain't that awesome? I know I am, but I mean my idea, guys! So, I'll announce the rounds here in my journal, you come in and give your suggestions, and then I'll choose randomly and match the suggestions with the current states and art will happen! Woooo!
Now: LET'S! GET! DOWN! TO! BUSINESS!
Your job is to choose 12 characters. Here's the rules:
- Each person can suggest ONE character. Your first comment is the one that counts, so choose wisely.
- If we have more than 12 suggestions, I'll choose randomly, with change of swaying the dice in favor of any character I'd particularly enjoy taking part in this. ;D
- Suggesting a character again will not raise the chances of them being chosen. I'll only take un

Winter is Coming
Few phrases are more closely associated with the Game of Thrones fandom than this one. We know that winters in Game of Thrones are long, often lasting several years. It is also difficult for people in that world to predict when the seasons will change, the Citadel even has a special, rare breed of white raven they send out to deliver the news of the changing season. While this may just be the way that the seasons in the world of Game of Thrones

Character Design: An introductionCharacter Design: An introduction3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

With all the "art theft" things going on, I wanted to attempt to draw a line between my side of things. The most recent one that seemed to spread all over dA was the fact that someone referenced someone else's piece to make a similar piece. Did they use the linework that the artist drew without permission? (I don't know for sure). I see it all the time mostly with fanart. I don't look at much fanart and the only fanarts that I've done (on this acct.) is Spyro and Kija . Otherwise, it's either personal art or other people's characters. (Which I'm not grouping under fanart because they aren't published books/games/movies, etc) Certain fanarts seem to get more respect than others.

I might resume the Bionicle project during the summer. As of now it will remain on hiatus.
I do think you'll see a 2011-2012 sketch dump though (as I'm always sketching) and you'll probably see a Toa-Mata Wallpaper soon. Unfortunately, you likely wont see any long term rendered and polished work for a while due to focus being placed on my professional site.
What I plan to do for bionicle is a portrayal of Makuta and Matanui as mythological iconography, such as
and a redesign of a Bohrok, TakaNuva and a Rahkshi.
This, however, is a reduction of what i originally planned to do.
I obviously bit off more thanI could chew.
For example I will not be doing the Toa Nuva. Knowing how much time it took to create the original six...I'm not doing them again, lol. Keep an eye open Just in case they ap
