He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.
In 1979, screenwriter Dan O’Bannon craft

The Lonely PathThe Lonely Path3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions
Get to know us - Beatniks - 6Apr12I came up with an idea of a daily blog which consists of interviews. The questions I asked are:Get to know us - Beatniks - 6Apr124 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1) How did you first get started into photography
2) Who and what are your influences
3) Have you ever been published or received a DD? If so, what piece? (include the thumbnail if you want).
4) What kind of education do you have in photography, or are you self-taught
5) Have you ever worked in the field of photography
6) Do you think it's important to have a philosophy
7) What advice would you give to an upcoming photographer
1) I first started photography 5 years ago. I wanted to try it out and it turned out to be my passion. I've always loved animals which is why wildlife and macro photography turned out to be the things I like doing the most. I ended up working with National Geographic and I've had the chance to go to some really cool places. We live on an amazing planet and my aim is to show the world what they might not notice or take the time to appreciate.

Necks for anatomy practiceI need to see loads of examples before I can get something. So here's loads of necks doing the weird necky things that necks do.Necks for anatomy practice3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
To get what's going on with the tangle of muscles and tendons catch necks in action. Watch people in cafes. Pause TV. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer has particularly good lighting for drawing.) Then check out how cartoonists simplify the confusion. Maybe even check out some anatomy to see what's going on beneath the skin. Each gives you a different piece of the puzzle.
Organized by where the head is relative to the shoulders, then by where the camera is. So each group should have the same muscles and tendons bulging out. (If you post drawings from any stock here, do check the stock artist's rules.) NOTE: Images marked with ⬅ are NOT stock. Use them for practice, but don't post. (There's only one image marked since there's so much great stock.)
If you stumble across good neck stock, especially with good shadows, I'd l

Joss Whedon's Top Ten Writing Tips!I recently made a post and shared an article I found where Joss Whedon shared his top ten writing tips. The first five are here and the full list is on our blog! Great stuff!!!Joss Whedon's Top Ten Writing Tips!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Written by Art Fuller
Find the full article here.
Joss Whedon is most famous for creating Buffy the Vampire Slayer, its spin-off Angel and the short-lived but much-loved Firefly series. But the writer and director has also worked unseen as a script doctor on movies ranging from Speed to Toy Story. Here, he shares his tips on the art of screenwriting.
1. FINISH IT
Actually finishing it is what I’m gonna put in as step one. You may laugh at this, but it’s true. I have so many friends who have written two-thirds of a screenplay, and then re-written it for about three years. Fin
Does Intelligence Play a Role In Creativity?Today I'd like to share a highly insightful article by Tanner Christensen from creativesomething.net entitled "The Relationship Between Creativity and Intelligence." Here's some of what he has to say:Does Intelligence Play a Role In Creativity?2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Intelligence is classically defined as "the ability to acquire and utilize knowledge."
Creativity is the ability to come up with new ideas through a mental process of connecting existing concepts. The ideas don't have to be revolutionary (which is a common misconception many people have about creative thinking), they just have to be new for the thinker.
Intelligence certainly plays a part in creative thinking, but not how you might expect. ... Intelligence only gets you so far when it comes to creativity. To be creative is to pull existing knowledge into a new situation and quickly sort through potenti

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.
