Color composition!A Couple of months past, the last book of James Gurney came to my hands. It was about color and light and it has the greatest review about the subject I've ever found on a book for now.Color composition!5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Because of that great discovery, I've decided to compliment it with my own experience and that is why I started doint light tutorials:

Color composition tutorial --> http://vandervals.deviantart.com/art/Tutorial-painting-a-dragon-201830846?q=gallery%3Avandervals&qo=1
But I think that I did something wrong, I tryed to explain color composition just by working in 1 picture, and so that you understand that it is necesary that you see more than one.
That is why I decided to make this picture selection and show you some pictures that I think represent the color composition very well. Here they are ordered by issues:

- Firstly, the BIG news! Kraken Releasing (yes, that's what they're called) is putting out not one, not two, but THREE Godzilla flicks on Blu-Ray this year!
EBIRAH: HORROR OF THE DEEP
GODZILLA VS. HEDORAH
GODZILLA VS. GIGAN
Thusfar, all that's confirmed are dual language tracks, but special features and/or whether or not any of the films will have their respective American-produced dubs (superior in quality to the "international" dubs) have yet to be mentioned. Given that it's a relatively small set from a new company under the Section 23 label, we can at least hope for more than the drag-and-drop releases from Sony a few years back.
- Secondly, a hardcover graphic novel adaptation of GODZILLA (2014) is being released by DC (though sources say it might be Legendary Comics) - either way, Art Adams, Eric Battle, an
Waitaminute...2 MILLION?!So....apparently I kinda' sorta' MISSED that my DA page finally passed the 2 million pageview mark.Waitaminute...2 MILLION?!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That's really something.
After doing a little digging, it became apparent that I've been on Deviantart for no less than 9 years (that's including the time from my first DA account, after moving to this one).
Man. 9 years. How DO you people put up with me?
In the spirit of celebration, I'd really like to make something to thank everyone. If you have suggestions, please respond below! I can't guarantee I'd be able to make anything too massively complex, but thoughts and well-wishes are appreciated!
Here's to another million, perhaps?!
Godzilla granted with Japanese CitizenshipThat's right! Sixty-one years after Godzilla's first appearence on the silverscreen, Japan decided to recognize his most famous cultural icon as citizen of Japan!Godzilla granted with Japanese Citizenship8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
After being heralded as national hero by japanese authorities, Godzilla was given a special residency certificate. The objective, according to Tokyo civic leaders, is to promote tourism in the region.
Also to celebrate Godzilla as a national icon, recently Toho ordered a replica of Godzilla's head to be put atop their headquarters building in Tokyo, as can be seen here

Skydomes paintedSo at this point its pretty much textured. I painted the skydomes last night. I made a day and night version with layered clouds above and below the floating island which have a cool effect. I think these will end up being separate pmx files. I'd like the skydome to change from day version ot night version with a slider or two. The street lamps I intend to glow just haven't taken to time to do it in maya just for show. Mostly I need to fix up some things and get ready to send to 3d max.Skydomes painted1 year ago in Personal More Like This
BRS painting texturesAnd you thought what I showed you last time was all! Nope gota do highlights and shading. I want this to sorta look like a huke inspired thing so I've grunged up the texture some.BRS painting textures2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I took the model into mudbox and loaded up the parts of her piece by piece and then assigned the texture in layers like photoshop. From there I can add more layers and use these layers to physically paint onto the model so highlights go where I need them too. Its a lot faster then guessing and testing your texture on the model.
I can use stencils and brush effects to replicate that grunge charcoal effect huke uses. You can sort of see it close up. I didn't want to go nuts with it just enough to see it.
After I'm sorta happy with it I can export it out with all the layers to photoshop. I usually touch up what I did in mudbox in photoshop since photoshop is a little more powerful then mudbox as far as painting and texturing goes.
When I'm happy I can make a make a flatten texture and try it out on the

I felt pressure on my sheets. My eyes snapped open and a hand clamped tightly around my head, turning me to face my assailant. In the dark, I couldn't make out much, but I could see blue. It looked like the bottom half of a mask, only being partially visible in the dim light of a clock and drawn curtains. They leaned down, and the cloying stench of what I could only assume was blood wafted into my nose. I cringed, regretting not peeing before I turned in. I shut my eyes tightly for a moment, but opened them to get a good look at my assailant. The mask was surprisingly simple, and yet somehow te

Godzilla 2014 news roundup!Man, it's been quite a week for Godzilla news!Godzilla 2014 news roundup!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, Oscar Nominee Ken Watanabe (THE LAST SAMURAI, MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA, BATMAN BEGINS, INCEPTION) is joining the principal cast of GODZILLA!
Unlike most modern blockbusters/revivals/reboots, the studio seems to be going for higher caliber actors rather than superstar recognizable faces. It reminds one of the casting mentality for JAWS (paraphrasing - "We have our star...it's the shark...so let's focus on just getting really GOOD actors, not really famous ones.")
What's even cooler is the first ever set photo! Check out that charred helicopter!
But that's not all! Gareth Edwards sends a special message out via Youtube! Seems to be that this set is a Japanese airport...intriguing!

The Stomping Landhttp://www.kickstarter.com/projects/524168447/the-stomping-land/posts/502044The Stomping Land3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dear Deviants! I'm posting for you here to let you check out the kickstarter of a certain little project to which I got a little involved. The Stomping Land is an online video game in which players undertake the rol of tribal hunters to hunt and survive in a world of dinosaurs and prehistoric creatures.
Luckily I rushed in them just in time to shout out "WAIT! what if...we use non-cliche dinosaurs?" And the reactions were great!
The devlopers are very open and friendly and hopefully we'll be able to see all types of wonderful yet unfortunaly currently unpopular ancient creatures such as prestosuchids and Azhdarchids as well as some dinosaurs that never make it to popular media, like Stygimoloch and my beloved Austroraptor.
So if you are interested in the game as a project (I honeslty think it's a kickass one), you want to support the popularity of new ancient species in the eyes of new generations, or ju

Finnedyria CONTEST RESULTS!I have gone through all the entries and i have finally decided who I like the best and feel works the best into the world! I also wanted to choose entries that did not look to much like a finnedyr to begin with like bodyshape. THERE WERE Lots of amazing enteries! but could only be 4 winners! The criteria I wrote down at the beginning of the contest had a lot to do with why I choose the ones under and why I didnt choose others. I felt like the ones under really fit the criterias I added. I had many other favourites to, but I felt many of them looked to much like cats or dogs, which might be the reason why they did not get picked. BUt great work! fun to see so many people design creative things!

death vigil out in julydeath vigil out in july2 years ago in Personal More Like This
so, this july i am starting death vigil, published by image/top cow. it will be a monthly series limited to three 8-issue arcs, so there is a definitive ending. with this i have learned some of the things about publishing independent comics, and i am planning a video with some tips after i summarize my experiences. hopefully it will prove helpful for others to get their stuff published
but apparently rule 1 is promote preorders. preorders are crucial for independent books as they define the print runs, and are crucial to the sucess of the book.. so.. as my far more experienced friends told me to do....
death vigil is preorderable ...pretty much in any place or webstore that carries US comics.

It left us all touched and sad, knowing Vahl's adventure is finally over.
Or is it?
It might've been episode 200, or 199, I can't remember. But he said something along the lines of:
'You guys can keep it going with fan art and fan fiction...'
He has given us a mission.
I speak to you, Fellow Adventurers: If we keep up the fan fiction, keep up the fan art, then A Skyrim Tale will never truly be over.
He has given it to us, as a gift from him to us. We must keep it up...
One day, just one day... we can see Vahl again... one more time...
