Hyrule Gets ‘Game of Thrones’ Intro Treatment
Some amazing artists put together this animated sequence, which mimics the opening credits of Game of Thrones, except with a map of Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We have to give some major props for this video’s uncanny ability to make us feel incredible amounts of GoT-related excitement for this weekend as well as mist
:::WARNING::: THIS IS A SHIPPER'S RANTThis is a rant. It is a pro-BBxRae rant. It includes an anti-BBxTerra rant and a very small anti-RobxRae rant. It's also full of Teen Titan episode and both types of comics' spoilers. You've been warned. Continue at your own risk.:::WARNING::: THIS IS A SHIPPER'S RANT4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Hello there! I am an adamant BBxRae fan. It's got its own folder in my favorites. That folder has like 8 pages. I LOVE BBxRae.
Now, I know there are people who hate it. The whole entitled to your opinion and blah blah. I just happen to think they would make the perfect couple. After all, they understand each other very well. Or, at least, they've got the potential.
I'll admit, in the TV series, they don't show that much of a connection. BUT WAIT. Why is Beast Boy constantly trying to get Raven to laugh or even just smile? Why is he constantly trying to get her involved? WHY IS HE ALWAYS AROU

Were they sane they might just keep quiet until they actually have some games to push, but their advertising suggests they're taking aim at the remaining limb.
"Check this out; Xbox, snap TV....it does two things at once, so I can play games while I watch my favourite show at the same time."
People knew this was impractical/useless when we were first presented with the concept.....in 1989, when we watched Back to the Future 2.
Who the f**k is running this marketing campaign??!!
Death Battle Suggestions: QuestionThis character is probably one of my favorite superheroes. He's the detective I find more interesting than Batman. I'm shocked HE hasn't gotten a TV show by now! But...that's beside the point. I opened my Death Battles by pitting him against Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright, which he won (mostly). It was pretty fun and entertaining, so I figured...what the heck? Why not list some characters I think he'd be good to fight against?Death Battle Suggestions: Question1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Obvious choice? Maybe. But you have to admit it would be interesting to see who would come out on top--the original character or the expy for the character. Also, if someone takes it, I demand that you reference the comic where Question says "Rorschach sucks".
Two rather low-profile vigilantes with a bit of a reputation for being brutal. Yay or nay?
Two incredible non-powered fighters whose sanity tends to be...well, questionable at best (no pun intended).
Ancient Egyptian Art and MythologyAuthor's NoteAncient Egyptian Art and Mythology2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Ancient Egypt was a HUGE society with a rich culture and a highly developed religion. Egypt is one of the most famous ancient cultures because of its unique funerary practices and its incredible architectural feats. Now some of you are reading this because you're interested in Ancient Egyptian art and others of you are (like me) take an art history course and reading this to help study. I will be tailoring this journal for those taking an art history course but no one wants to be bogged down with bland information so I'll try to keep this interesting (not that it's hard because it's ANCIENT EGYPT!)
Note that dates aren't terribly important just make sure you are in the right century
What you really need to know
The entire period of Ancient Egypt lasted from 3500 BCE to 1070 BCE and was broken into four periods: the Predynastic and early dynastic periods (which we are

Common Cliches in Manga Authors MakeThis is an exercise for myself to improve my own writing skills via identifying pitfalls and mistakes other authors make when attempting their own stories. These are the most common offenders. Other suggestions are appreciated.Common Cliches in Manga Authors Make2 months ago in Personal More Like This
If they're not the main cast, they are congress level retarded. The author especially makes the "baddies" as incredibly dumb and incompetent as possible. The author thinks this makes the protags look like badass heroes when in reality it just makes them look no tougher than your average school yard bully.

The author never seems to put themselves in the shoes of characters or do any research on organizations in general. So you end up things like milita
CLOSED!SECOND AND FINAL ROUND, VOTE IN THIS POLL YOUR FAVORITE PHOTO http://francescadelfino.deviantart.com/journal/poll/4206883/CLOSED!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thank you all for your patience. I'd like to apologize for closing the voting process while it was in progress and for asking you to cast your votes again, but I felt it was needed after receiving several complaints concerning the current voting rules, so I have reconsidered some points.
The complaints I received involved some of the contest participants advertising their entries in journals, polls, notes, etc. and asking other deviants - i.e. their watchers - to vote for them. I would like to make it very clear that these deviants didn't do anything wrong nor tried to cheat. They did so because they were told it was allowed, so none of the blame should go on them.
However, I always value your feedback greatly and I am sorry that this situation has upset so many of you. I understand your point and in an attempt to make things more fair to e

This is a little different commission guide. Most importantly it is kind request on my clients to follow these, since it makes me very comfortable and work in pleasant conditions on their art.

Are You Afraid of the Grimdark?After I started posting Animorphs fan art this past week, I got into a discussion with several Deviants about the way the original book series ended. My stance was, I didn’t like Animorphs’ gradual slide into bleak depressing hopelessness, where nothing works out for any of the main characters and it’s heavily implied that they all die. The whole thing felt like K.A. Applegate toying with the readers’ emotions for five years just to say “See? This is why war is bad, people!” Yeah, I get that. But I prefer stories where the good guys triumph, where they overcome insurmountable odds and achieve their goals. It’s hopeful, it’s inspiring, and it’s why I love to read stories.Are You Afraid of the Grimdark?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

ReBoot Returns!!!!VANCOUVER, BC (September 30, 2013) – A renowned global animation brand is about to be re-booted.

In conjunction with the re-birth of Mainframe Entertainment, a name celebrated for its pioneering achievements in computer-animated television, the company has unveiled the first two series in development: an all-new version of the popular ReBoot franchise and Tiger’s Apprentice, a CGI animated series based on the trilogy of young adult novels written by award-winning author Laurence Yep.
The reimagining of the venerable ReBoot series comes just in time for its 20th anniversary. Making its debut on television screens in 1994, ReBoot was centered on the world of Mainframe, where a guardian program sprite and his friends defended the system from superviruses bent on creating havoc and

Through The Lens #13 ~ Mastering CompositionArguably the most important challenge that faces every artist is that of mastering composition. Artists spend their entire life experimenting with different compositional tools in order to achieve desired effects. Throughout the academic history of art various books and theories have been written about principles and elements of design. The following list is not comprehensive and may vary from other lists that are out there, but I attempted to compile the most useful list of compositional ideas that I could with photographic examples of each of the ideas. Sometimes as artist we can spend so much time on technique and subject matter, that the basic composition of the piece we are trying to create gets overlooked. These powerful compositional tools not only help us to create more cohesive and complex art but they also help us to speak about art. Using the universal language of design, we can communicate with other artist in a seamless and direct way.

"All right, we're here." Standing in the middle of her female friend's room, Lucy crossed her arms under her breasts, feeling self-conscious from the other woman's intense gaze.
"So what do I have to do to make up for the favor I owe you?" she wanted to know, inwardly whimpering at just how much she owed her friend.
