On TES elvesAlright can I just say how much I love the elves in the Elder ScrollsOn TES elves2 years ago in Personal More Like This
J.R.R. Tolkien popularized elves as these otherworldly, divinely beautiful creatures which sorta established the standard for the race in all modern fantasy that came after. They're nearly immortal, distant, and to me, plain boring. Then around comes Morrowind, the game that really made me fall in love with TES, its world and its lore!! The elves of TES have a long history, and each subrace has their own cultural identity. The elves no longer just sit in their Crystal ivory towers (well I guess some of them do) and sing to their trees or whatever - they're flawed, complicated PEOPLE, and extremely proud of who they are. The haughty Altmer, the hostile Dunmer from the Ashlands, the cannibalistic Bosmer, the late Dwemer and their scientific achievements…. when was the last time any elves modeled after Tolkien's work had this much cultural diversity??
I love the fact that Bethesda actually created some of the most inter

Thoughts on art[Because it's 4 AM and I can't get to sleep.]Thoughts on art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you're stuck on a blank page and don't know what to do, draw something from reference. Draw something from memory. Or just start drawing and see what happens. The worst thing you can do is keep that page blank even longer.
Silhouette is hugely important. It defines character. Of an environment, a character, a machine, anything. Start with the basics. Stick figures of poses, or blocking out of masses. Or drawing of lines of motion. Start with a large brush and wait until the very last moment to make it any smaller. Repeat.
Too much detail will often worsen the overall image. Be selective. Break it up a bit. Don't be repetitive; a rock formation shouldn't have rocks all the same size. Don't draw every single strand of hair; break it up into a few choice clumps and strands. Don't be afraid to leave areas rough and un-detailed if the eye isn't meant to focus there.
Color influences emotion. Colors in real life are often much less saturated t

Photomanip: Working with TexturesWelcome!Photomanip: Working with Textures2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures are a critical part of so many photomanipulations, but they're not as easy to use as they appear. Below are some great examples of photomanipulations that, in my opinion, demonstrate excellent use of textures:
The goal of this article . . .
. . . is to serve as a resource for those of us who enjoy having textures be a predominant part of our photomanipulations and mixed media work so we can learn to use textures properly. Texture misuse or abuse can ruin an entire photomanipulation that otherwise might have been good. No matter how good we are at something, we can always grow to be better.
This journal represents the opinions of only one person: me, and it does not claim to be the end-all,

Is this a Deviation?I was in Greece visiting my family recently... and after everyone went to sleep, I couldn't. I knew there was a beauty outside that I rarely have a chance to see. And a deep, primal hunger drove my need to be outside to breathe in.Is this a Deviation?3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
It was pitch dark. I couldn't see anything but the stars and maybe the driveway lights. But my camera can see so much more.
That's the milky way coming just about almost out of that chimney of the little house where I was staying.

You are always welcome to draw something for Katie, but I'm no longer offering art back. She is better now.
Please consider ing this journal if you support it; it may get more exposure, which would give Katie more art.
...So, as my scrap-watchers know, my little sister Katie is sick. (I mentioned it here for those who wanted to leave her a comment.)
Well, her cough worsened and today she is in the hospital with Dad. Her fever hit 105 degrees Fahrenheit, but it is lower now and she is getting the best care that they can give her. It's pneumonia again, and she'll probably be in the hospital for several days before she can come home.
Among other things, she took her Kindle Fire with her, so she has internet access—i.e., I can e-mail her a link to this journal.
Edit: Katie's internet access at the hospital is not very great, so she will be seeing all these pictures when she arrives home! Dad believ
Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-ConNo matter how tired your feet are by what is actually Day 5 of Comic-Con, counting Preview Night, no matter how exhausted your body and empty your wallet, there's always a bit of sadness in the air when the last few hours of Comic-Con wind down.Sunday, Day 4 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In the deviantART booth, we witnessed something a little magical when the voice came over the loudspeaker to announce that Comic-Con was closed at 5:00 pm sharp, the remaining straggling attendees and exhibitors packing up stopped what they were doing and burst into applause. It was a mixture of relief, pride, and fulfillment of a successful convention.
Someone yelled, "See you in 365 days!" and there was a true moment of community with everyone in earshot. Sure, it's a sad sentiment, but it gives us all something to look forward to, and the months ahead will be filled with the happy memories of all we accomplished over the past week. Friends met that stop by every year, new friends, new properties to become fans of, new comic books to read and

Raffle? Is that the correct word? Anyway, those of you that follow my polls know that I wanted to do something special for my 300k pageviews. And after... I think it was for 150k, when I was giving 3 months of premium, there were like 3 or 4 winners ( and I didn't have enough points ) I will do this with raffle instead (because there will be only one winner, a lot more people will have a chance to win, plus theres this thing with DA now where your pageviews gets counted when someone visits your gallery as well...) .

I want to fall in love with art all over again. Going through the painful process of growth as the art-bones stretch and your creativity get's set loose after wondering if you had any creativity at all!
2015 marks a new year and a new start, make the most of it and don't start it unprepared!
Here follows a list of things I'd like to do in 2015. You could call it a bucket-list. You can copy mine or make your own, but this might give you some ideas for yourself.
1. Going through all the fundamentals all over again.
It has been a few years that I studied any fundamentals and they seem to be lost somewhere in a dusty corner of my brain. I will buy: Books, video's, classes and study it by drawing or painting the knowledge I get from this. After doing so I will discus the topics with some fellow artist friends and see if they have feedback or perhaps anything to add that I might have missed.

You stood outside of a large room, a heavy metal door stood in the way of you and the subject. The subject in question is a male hunter, randomly catched like the previous were, and he was for some unkown reason was friendly towards you. You checked things off your checkboard, the hunter, himself was recently turned. He still looked almost human, he had his claws, sharp teeth, and last week he managed to jump at heights and pounced on your co-worker, killing him instanly. All the scientists calls him Hunter or Project Delta, Hunter wore a collar around his neck, his name imprinted on the dogtag. Hunter no longer wore his old alltir, he now wears a plain white tee shirt and plain white pants. You watch beeped, alarming you that it was time to feed him.

Just letting you guys now there are 8 days left to join in on this!
So for fun and self development I decided to challenge myself to each month, focus on 1 color a month and figure out different palettes to use with it. After hearing several people say they liked the idea and wanted to join in, I decided to make it a bit more interesting and open it up to the public as a Color Jam of sorts.
when will it be?
the Challenge will begin on August 1st and end on August 31st
How do you participate?!
Step 1: Find some line-art featuring a red character.
:iconComicteamup: :iconFlats-for-colorists: and :iconcolor-me-club: are good places to start.
Keep the image pretty simple so you can focus mainly on the color combinations that relate to red, I'd advise

Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child
Violence in Brazil (video)Yesterday we had another protest in my city, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil.Violence in Brazil (video)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The police attacked innocent people who kept yelling "NO VIOLENCE" and "You there, soldiers, you are also explored"... we sat on the ground under the rain and cold in a demonstration of peace, but even so they threw Tear Gas and rubber bullets against people who weren't doing anything wrong. I was there. So people ran in fear, trying not to fall nor to be smashed by a hundred feet... A mass in panic. But the more they pushed us back, more angry we felt.
This videos cannot show the real chaos that was yesterday, only a small part of it. Those footages are from manifestants, 'cause the media won't show what really happened.
There's no turning back. We won't stop now.
