I've found a certain value in doing these wallpacks in themes as opposed to just one big download of various graphics at the end of each year. I found that it really brought a certain level of polish and cohesiveness to the packs, as evidenced by the Drowned Harbor wallpack. It also helps serve as a point of inspiration and focus/North Star throughout the process.
The theme of this wallpack is "symbolism" and it's effect and/or control over us. Everything from religious symbolism to superstitions to occult to symbolism around death and the afterlife and so on.
I tried to cover this theme without being too brash or obvious. I wanted

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Artist WalkthroughThis walkthrough focuses on:Artist Walkthrough3 years ago in Personal More Like This
- guiding you as an artist and improving your artistic skills
So having said that... let's get started!
I have been drawing for a long time. Since I was little I would draw all the time on anything I could find. That passion for drawing and art has always stayed with me. But the problem is talent or potential will only get you so far. If you really want to become a great artist you will have to put in many hours of work. And you would preferably have someone there to guide you. Even now I am learning about basic skills I wish I had learned years ago. That is the problem of being self taught... you have to figure everything out yourself. Of course there are benefits to that too. Self taught artists are generally very motivated and passionate people. I have only come to the point where I am now just because I am passionate and slightly obsessed with drawing. But I want to know more, learn more and improve more. So that is why I am setting up this little drawi

StarCraft II is the hot tournament videogame that just may breakthrough as the harbinger of the esports phenomenon and one of the great cultural game-changers of all time.
Midnight in Anaheim. Caffeinated casters boom rapid fire commentary rattling the packed hall. Elite Starcraft players from around the globe execute complex strats that would have made Rommel the Desert Fox himself proud. 20,000 are in attendance, on the edge of their seats, and cheering as loudly as any soccer match as they watch the 30-foot screens hanging from the rafters. Another four and a half million are watching the streams live. The feeling is that of an NCAA Final Four game, set in a European soccer stadium, somehow shoehorned into a casino showroom in Las Vegas. It’s all of the skill, the fan devotion and the spectacle anyone could pos

Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

My Own Builds | New Images for WatchersI have a problem. I have several images that show progress of my builds and I want to share them with my watchers, but I don't want to stuff my gallery full of progress images.My Own Builds | New Images for Watchers11 months ago in Personal More Like This
I thought earlier that I could use something like Twitter or Instagram. The idea was that I would post the photos on there and then I wouldn't be filling my gallery with progress images. But I realized anything I post off-site of dA won't get nearly as much attention from my watchers than it would on my dA page. So what's the point in even doing that?
My current solution is to post a progress image of what I'm building to my MinecraftPhotography deviantART page, but when I have another update photo or a different angle to post, I won't post that in a new image. What I will do is replace the first image with the updated one. (I can simply update the original. I've done this to several of my images when I find they need better editing or a watermark.) I will write a description of the build and it's current state

Based on Melissa de la Cruz's New York Times best-selling novel, Witches of East End centers on the Beauchamp family, where in season one sisters Freya and Ingrid discovered they are witches with ancient magical powers. With the help of their mother Joanna and Aunt Wendy, they learned how to cultivate their craft and work together to defeat unearthly enemies seeking revenge on their family, while keeping their abilities a secret from the town.
This season, with the portal to Asgard open, what comes through will forever change the lives of the Beauchamps. Darkness surrounds East End as a new stranger arrives. Joanna is still weak with poison in her blood as the Beauchamps search desperately for a cure. With the death of Penelope, Killian and Dash's warlock powers return. #DarknessIsRising

Age of Ultron***Minor Spoilers***Age of Ultron4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Even at their worst (Iron Man 2), the Marvel movies (The real ones, not that sh*t Fox and Sony keep excreting) are always a fun ride, well worth the price of a cinema ticket. Age of Ultron maintains that level of entertainment.
Despite having a huge array of characters nibbling at screen time, it never feels as sluggish as the midsection of the first Avengers flick. It rockets along at a glorious pace and maintains focus on its own story, but at the same time, Age of Ultron isn’t as good a tale.
Whereas Avengers felt like the end point that multiple movies had been leading up to, Age of Ultron doesn’t seem to further the series’ overarching narrative. It exists purely so we can spend more time in the company of the characters we know and love. Not a bad thing per se, especially with the usual barrage of fast quips and gags causing some genuine LOL moments (“I’m sorry”), but it does

Rise From the Dead
“Where are tonight the sword and its swinger, the holy spells and their singer? Where is the light to scatter the ghosts, the sight of dawn to shatter the frost? Fears can be hidden, and hearts’ fire kindled, but will shadows be caged and demons faced? The curses of liches linger like winds of winter, and wolves howl a hymn for the undead's hunt… who will be safe from the grim reaper’s swing, and who will fall in its grip?”

This whole controversy with Star Wars and the whole cruciform lightsaber feels like that quote, man. For me, the new Star Wars trailer hasn't left me with much of an opinion because there was very little shown. Fair enough, it is teaser, it is supposed to keep us hopping on our hemorroid-donuts in glee until the actual thing comes out. That is not to say the teaser didn't leave an impression on me, ho no. Right now, let me shock you all with this stunning revelation:

Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin
