Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit: Elves
Tolkien’s texts are notable for their abundance of characters, many of them mentioned perhaps only once, other playing very important parts in the stories. However, it is often very difficult to find any description of how those characters look, and this is what we, artists and illustrators, are usually most concerned with.
So here it is – Tolkien Illustrator’s First Aid Kit – a list of all those characters, whose physical appearance is mentioned in the texts, including The Silmarillion and The History of the Middle-earth.
To start with, the Elves. As we know, during the march from Cuiviënén t

Hey there! My real name is Olga, I live and work in St. Petersburg, Russia (it’s a wonderful city but recently I dream to run away from here). Now I'm an artist in a small company owned by the Austrian corporation Novomatic that produces graphics and animations for casino gaming machines. What else can I say... I just love Shakespeare’s plays, Jane Austen’s novels, Tolkien’s tales and Norse mythology. All of this help
The Pre-Raphaelite BrotherhoodThe BrotherhoodThe Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in 1848, London, by William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Later on it was joined by William Michael Rossetti, James Collinson, Frederic George Stephens and Thomas Woolner. Their plan was to change art by removing the mechanistic approach which appeared after Raphael and Michelangelo. The seven considered Raphael's paintings having a corrupting influence on art, hence the name.
Intentions and thoughts
The Brotherhood wanted to return to Quattrocento Italian art for its detail, strong colours and compositions. They published a periodical, The Germ, to promote their ideas and creations and recorded their debates in the Pre-Raphaelite Journal. They specifically opposed the founder

Ice Bucket Challenge supports animal crueltyI'm sure everyone heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge. Stars do it, YouTubers do it, normal people do it... I won't do it. And I strongly suggest you don't do it either.Ice Bucket Challenge supports animal cruelty3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Why should you not support the Ice Bucket Challenge?
Because you actually support animal cruelty.
The donated money goes to the ALS Association. They research ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), "a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord", or for normal people: It's a disease that kills off nerve cells and eventually leads to the patients death.
The problem is, they use animals for their experiments. They manipulate the genes of mice and apes or inject chemicals to simulate the symptoms of ALS.
They actually have a page about it on their website.

September Song Contest--WINNERSSeptember Song Contest--WINNERS4 months ago in Personal More Like This
We are proud to announce the winners of the contest!
This piece had a very clear story behind it that aligned with the meaning of the song, and the expressions on the characters' faces are very well done.
This would be a song difficult for many to draw to, but we think they matched the tone of the song well with the idea they had in this picture. Cleverly designed characters.
Though there's no obvious story with this one, it's arguably one of the most beautifully done entries and the colors, setting, and character all portray an obvious emotion and represent the song well.
Winners, it is your responsibility to collect your prizes. Contact all the donors listed below to claim them. Thank you to everyone who participated and thanks for your patience during the voting process. We hope you look forward to our next contest, to be revealed soon!!

Regarding the Boston Marathon BombingI've tried to write this journal a few times, but I am having trouble finding words.Regarding the Boston Marathon Bombing2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I live in Massachusetts, so Boston is "my home" when I travel and the city that I most strongly associate with myself. I'm mad. I don't know how to feel about things like this other than to be mad. In an age of immediate and 24 news, it's hard to not know who or why, and endlessly frustrating to watch people fight and blame without any factual information.
I do love the quote from Fred Rogers that has been going around. But I also think about the words of people like George Carlin. Is this just how we live now? I feel like people my age, who were teens during 9/11, live our lives just assuming that any and every day there's a chance we could be violently and senselessly killed by a random act of violence. Does that mean that the people who do these things have succeeded?
