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

Paul Tobin, There and Back AgainPaul Tobin, There and Back Again8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Most denizens of the West think of New Zealand as a little known outpost of civilization somewhere beyond Australia at the ends of the Earth.
Could any land be any farther from the European motherland, birthplace of the Renaissance that is the Genesis-point of the visual arts narrative we continue expanding and evolving today? And yet this remote country of islands in the Pacific has suddenly become a cinematic storytelling powerhouse, a film-friendly factory for the creation of some of the most important touchstone mass entertainment experiences to influence our popular culture in recent years.
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 cruelty9 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.

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

DO YOU HAVE YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS IN MIND? HOW ABOUT YOUR OCs? BOOK COVER ART?
If you have a project for me, send a Note here in Deviantart or drop a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll have a nice chat and work things out.
I'm trying to build up the profile and starting if off by offering affordable commissioned arts and prioritize on Original Characters.
Promoting them in this experimental pseudo-3D style that I've been working on.
1. ORIGINAL CHARACTER AND FAN-CHARACTER from video games and anime.
For example a character created in roleplaying games, fanfic characters or the very character that is born within your imagination.

about life. :> I hope it does the same for you~
Stop spending time with the wrong people.
Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they'll make room for you. You shouldn't have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it's not the people that stand by your side when you're at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you're at your worst that are your true friends.
Stop running from your problems.
Face them head on. No, it won't be easy. T

Over 350 deviants showed up to celebrate all things deviantART, setting a record for the highest attended deviantMEET in history in the process... until now.Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Almost exactly three years later -- on Saturday, June 30, 2012 -- at the same location in Hyde Park, London deviants once again turned up in droves. Smashing the previous record, our London deviantMEET 2012 saw over 550 deviants throughout the day.
Most deviantMEETs include a group photo, usually taken towards the end of the event's festivities. However, we wasted no time taking our group shot in front of the Albert Memorial, as we wanted to ensure we were complying with Hyde Park's rules and regulations for large gatherings. With a group this massive -- and awesome -- it's hard not to draw attention!

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?

Bear with me, it is 5am here in Las Vegas. I woke up early due to having major jet lag of 8 hours difference. It is now 1pm in London, my body clock thinks I am still in London but I cannot keep my eyes open pass 9-10pm as at this time it is 4am or so in London.
Before I studied Digital Photography, I studied Animation, before that Film and Art. One of my friends, a classmate in my animation class showed me the video below on Facebook and I thought to share it with my watchers here on DA.
The video is about 4 Disney Background Artists (Mark Davis, Eyvind Earle, Josh Meador and Walt Peregoy), each of them, in their own style draw/ paint the same tree from still life. The whole moral of the video is for budding artists who like to, let’s say, draw Sonic exactly how they see him in media. When they should be drawing what they feel and what inspires the
