Golden Age of IllustrationGolden Age of Illustration2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
When in the second half of the 19th century newspapers and illustrated books became popular and widespread thanks to improvements in printing technology, many artists found their base to spread their skills. The official time span of the Golden Age of Illustration is said to be from 1880s to 1920s, but it varied a little bit between Europe and America.
While European illustrators were influenced mostly by the Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau and Post-Impressionists (especially by Les Nabis, a group of Parisian artists), their American colleagues focused around Howard Pyle's Brandywine School of American Illustration in the Brandywine Valley.
Amongst the most popular artists of this time we find Arthur Rackham (UK), Howard Pyle (US), Ivan Bilibin (Russia), Theodor Kittelsen (Norway), Edmund Dulac (France), John Bauer (Sweden), Beatrix Potter (UK), N.C. Wyeth (US), Sulamith Wülfing (

EDIT: Some things have suddenly come up for me at the end of the month, so I'm moving the contest end date from Oct 31st, to Nov 30th.
Well, we haven't had a contest in quite some time, so I thought I would start one.
The theme will be "The Women of Dreamworks". This is just a small, and hopefully fun contest. I don't have much to offer for prizes, just some points.
However, MoonyMina has offered drawing prizes to go along with the points. (see the prizes below)
The point of this contest is to celebrate the great female characters that Dreamworks has created and brought to life. So each picture MUST feature TWO or more female Dreamworks characters (crossovers between Dreamworks movies is welcomed).
No mature pictures.
This is an art contest only, so no fanfics.
Both Traditional and dig

i all! I'm really looking forward to seeing what comes from this project as I have already put a lot of work into it and have become quite attached. My friend, Iain, and I have decided to travel for a year together. We both have always wanted to but have never had the opportunity for various reasons, but we've decided that there is no time like the present! We have begun designing products to sell in order to fund our year-long adventure starting in England (where Iain lives), traveling all through Europe, sailing across the Mediterranean, and traveling southeast through India, China, Japan and finally New Zealand. One of our fund raising endeavors is to create a deck of playing cards to sell throughout our travels and via our online store. We imagine a deck that is both unique and stylized, featuring a variety of artists with a range of styles and a common theme of world travel and global commun

TMI movieI promised yukihime-san I'd do a quick review for the movie so... I loved it <3 <3 <3TMI movie1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As a fangirl it made me very happy - the detail in the sets was awe-inspiring, and I thought the actors did a pretty amazing job bringing the characters to life. The costumes were gorgeous, the snark was fantastic (there was lots of laughter in the theatre) and the actions scenes! THE ACTION SCENES!
If I try to make myself stop fangirling and be objective I guess I can acknowledge that it has flaws. I don't think it will have the broad appeal of The Hunger Games - it'll appeal mainly, I think, to fans of the series and people who enjoy gothic, kick-ass fantasy/action movies.
I'm a bit confused by the way the writers chose to end the confrontation with Valentine (SPOILERS how exactly is the prologue in CoA meant to work?) but that didn't in any way detract from my enjoyment. It's definitely not the best movie I've seen this year, but it's probably the movie I had the most fun watchi

Fear not, Leviathaneers. Although Dalek Week 2013 was about five or six months ago, you've still got many weeks before Dalek Week 2014, which will be taking place in July.
The official dates are: July 21st to July27th
Don't worry about time zones, we're cool with that
But we're letting you know now so you fans can pick the themes this time! As you know, you usually get to suggest themes but last year we had to get on with Dalek Week 2013 before we ran out of 2013!
That was quite fun, actually.
EDIT: And so, we can't wait any longer. Here are the themes:
Day 1: Little Alek and Deryn(childhood)
Day 2: Genderbend
Day 3: Fairy Tales
Day 4: Music
Day 5: Good Morning
Day 6: Highschool(or)College
Day 7: No Way Out
>Those were some great suggestions. Lots of people were asking for genderbend, fairy tales, music, and highschool/college AUs, and that Little!Alek and Deryn idea just couldn't be ignor

Últimamente he visto muchas series con actores adolescentes y prácticamente todos son lo mismo: protagonistas que son entre los menos populares, que son los arraigados o que son los perdedores que quieren ser populares; los populares son los ricos, porristas, presidentes de la escuela, los malos y/o que odian siempre al protagonista; los bullyng son de los populares o los que visten de rufián con el cliché de hacer maldades, insultar o golpear; los nerds son los que usan lentes, con granos y risa estúpida; y siempre, siempre... la chica mas linda de la escuela tiene estos dos papeles a escoger, 1 ser la mas dulce caritativa chica popular con alma de ángel o 2 ser una perra (para no decir put&) millonaria popular mandona de la escuela (y eso le va también para el chico pero no se le dice perro, sino perra también)
No han visto que ninguna serie a cambiado esos o romper esos cliches para ver como son los adolescentes actuales?

He who birthed the strange tale into our world with a spurt of kaleidoscopic intergalactic vomit has now decided its end. CliveBarker has chosen his favorite Chapter Eight to bring the multi-imagined Hydra-headed beast of a story to the end. All that remains is Chapter Eight illustration submissions remaining open for the next two weeks. And with the perfect visual, Odyssey II: Propulsion will become another hallmark in deviantART history.

I really need the money y_y
I’m a university student in a foreign country and not being born in the UK (but in Europe) means I don’t get financial help from the government…
Therefore I’d appreciate it if you guys could commission me ;u; They aren't expensive or at least I don't think they are in relation to what I'm able to draw... Any little thing helps, please!
What will I draw?
Both traditional and digital drawings.
For traditional coloring, I'll do colored pencils, felt tips and crayon drawings.
