According to the Chinese zodiac, 2012 has ushered in the year of the dragon upon the world stage.
In addition to occupying an ages old position in our cultural consciousness, legend and folklore surrounding
the dragon mythology has long been firing the kiln of our dreams with fright and menace. When we are speaking of

I goofed up big time in writing the Dracula article.
Dracula is such a favorite novel of mine that it never dawned on me that I should bone up on some basic facts about the story and its author, Bram Stoker. So I didn’t even glance at Wikipedia before I started writing. Big mistake.
Hours after the article was published as part of the big Beta rollout of the new Front Page of deviantART, I was awakened by comments informin
Collection: BridgesCollection: Bridges in Art Features More Like This
Bridges hold many meanings for us. They represent a short cut (but with a certain danger; as evolved apes, falling is still a primal fear). They represent boundaries and crossing over them. They signify one’s past and one’s future. Visually, they can be as awe-inspiring as the Golden Gate or as sweetly bucolic as a row of wooden planks spanning a country creek. Bridges for foot, train and vehicle traffic all have their distinctive separate characters. But they all share in silent witness the secret stories of personal crossings that ended in triumph or something less.
“The fate of the bridges is to be lonely; because bridges are to cross not

There’s something about the brilliant colors of the dying leaves of autumn that reflects the wonders and the sorrows of life. It’s as if by waking up each morning into this beautiful world of natural colors, we are being given our bittersweet reward for surviving another year on the planet. We are regaled with a brief seasonal ceremony of the turning of the leaves, nature’s gift for our eyes as a promise she will soon return after her yearly rest. And then it’s time to let winter’s grey pallor unfold over us in blankets of dark cold rain and bright brisk snows; we sleep, the autumn’s leaves having promised

Collection: Haunted HousesCollection: Haunted Houses in Art Features More Like This
Coming across a deserted house, whether hidden by the distance of a rolling countryside or by the shadows of adjoining city ghetto dwellings, is like stumbling across an unnoticed, unburied corpse. It is obviously dead now, but once it was full of lives. Coming across a haunted house is different. Deserted or still occupied, it is a place where lives, unsatisfied, have refused to move on into a full death. The houses reflect their tenants. They are living dead structures, refusing to return to dust.
“What terrified me will terrify others; and I need only describe the spectre which had haunted my midnight pillow”

About Star Wars: ImmolationHey guys.About Star Wars: Immolation in Personal More Like This
For those who aren't familiar with my whereabouts on deviantART -- or more specifically my old and developing plans on deviantART -- me and my brother, fellow artist and writer :iconLightning-Powered:Lightning-Powered, have been working on a Star Wars fancomic for the past couple of years. We've gone to some incredible lengths to make it the best it can be and we've been working on it tirelessly since we developed the idea.
Keep in mind that this was written several years before Disney's takeover of LucasArt, before the Clone Wars 3D series, before all the major revisions took place in the Star Wars universe; think of it as just after the movies (Episodes 1-3) exclusively.
We started this comic as a true labor of love, for pleasure, and to cultivate or skills as writers and artists. I think we've accomplished at least a little bit of our goals with just our #0 issue alone. And though we've still got a long (understatement) way to go (we're thinking the whole series will

DeviantArtist Questionnaire1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?DeviantArtist Questionnaire in Personal More Like This
I has been 7 years according to my front page; I I even remember what that day was like in Feburary. It was a good feeling to finally get into the "real world" and show my art around the world, as opposed to just around the house.
2. What does your username mean?
Originally my name was different than it is now--it was "Thetrainingartist," and that was pretty descriptive, I think. My new username (as of dA introducing the name-change feature), "Atlas," is a joke between me and my brother a while back.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Focused. Patient. Determined.
4. Are you left or right handed?
I am, as my friend JonasScharf would say: a "southpaw."
5. What was your first deviation?
This. I remember making it too. I should draw this again one of these days just to compare the artistic growth.

I really appreciate it--seeing all the positive response to my work really makes me happy, and I'm very grateful for the support.
Recently, I've been getting a few inquiries about commissions, and since things have settled down a bit, I will be accepting commissions again. Only there is a catch: since I'm busy (nearly) full-time with a comic project in the pipeline, I'll be opening only 4 or 5 slots a month for the foreseeable future. I'll be doing INKED, PENCILLED or COLORED single character portraits, busts or full-body shots; NO backgrounds (aside from a tasteful ink-splatter, or a frame, etc. if appropriate). You can either have the piece in BLACK & WHITE or COLORED. PAYPAL only, and it's first come first serve.

...except Carl Grimes.
Who goes into the woods alone to taunt Walkers?
Who leads a horde of Walkers back to camp and gets people killed *cough*
Who walks backwards alone with two Walkers chasing him?
Who hears people screaming and runs blindly towards them during a Zombie apocalypse?
Who puts ALL common sense aside and risks the lives of EVERYONE just "to be a kid"?
Carl Mother-fucking Grimes.
You enjoy that little treat, Carl Grimes.
I look forward to the day you are torn to pieces.
I hate you, Carl Grimes.
I hate you so much.

-- Patching In - Autobot, Medical Doctor/ Field Medic, Ratchet Calling In. --
Greeting my human friends. I am told that the 14th of this month is a very special day among the human race. Valentines Day, If I am not mistaken. A day to show love toward people you care about. yes? You know, we have...well more like had...a day like that back on Cybertron. Although, Love was rarely used among our kind. Or perhaps its just myself.
With that being said, I can relate....
From the deepest part of my spark, I wish every single one of you a very happy Valentines Day. Don't break my spark, humans. After all, I do NEED THAT!!

Went Undercover as a Student at a UniversitySorry for lack of updates, I have been away for a bit. But now I am back to tell more stories and upload more art. Anyway. Sometimes Ry can be a troll (Just sometimes). And I did exactly that last week actually. I pulled off a 21 Jump Street. Right, so I was in Melbourne for a convention and I also stayed longer for a few days to hang out with friends. The night before convention, my friend Alice (Who is a core member of the Japan Club) invited me to visit her University at RMIT for a Japanese movie night as part of her Japan Club's activity. At first I was a bit unsure whether I should go or not since I am not a member of the club or the Uni. But I do like to watch Japanese movies, so I went! :iconmingplz:Went Undercover as a Student at a University in Personal More Like This
So there I was, in a room full of young fresh Uni students. One thing I noticed is that when I went into the club room, some people knew each other but many were first timers, they were all introducing themselves to each other, and I did as well. At that mome
Found my Japanese friend missing for 10 yearsOk, Ryght, so, around 10 years ago I had a Japanese friend back in High School. He was over as an exchange student for a few months. When he arRyved, we anime lovers kinda heard the news and wanted to check him out.. cos me and my friends were kinda obsessed with Japanese stuff. Somtimes we would even speak gibberish Japanese to be more cool. So anyway I heard about this Japanese fella called Tomoo, he was a year below us and I really wanted to meet him but had no idea how... I have never made friends with a Japanese person before and was kinda nervous, so I just kinda brushed it off. Then one day.. my friend Ming somehow made friends with him and introduced Tomoo to me. I was shaking.. I was sweating.. I didn't know whether I should shake his hands or high 5 or hug or what... At the end I chose to bow, well thats what Japanese do right? So I bowed, I remember bowing and felt stupid after. IreallyhadnoideahowtogreetpeopleandIstilldon't. So eventually we started talking and we beFound my Japanese friend missing for 10 years in Personal More Like This
Was once banned on DA for 3 weeksYeah cos im just cool like that! I was once banned on Deviantart for 3 weeks for inappropriate content. Its kinda like saying I've been to jail (Without the butt pain), prison changes a person!Was once banned on DA for 3 weeks in Personal More Like This
Heres a picture of me when I was banned on DA.
This was back like 4 years ago at least, when my drawing style was still vector ish looking. Those who watched me back in the day might have seen it, I think it even had around 400 favourites before it got taken off, it was a drawing of Batman in the batcave with naked girls on his monitors and you see Batman with his dick out (There's even a bit of semen coming out..). Anyway half a year later after it was posted up, some guy (or a girl i never found out who) decided to report on me and DA took the image off as well as banned me for around 3 weeks. I was a bit angry.
But this changed me, ok this journal is not about the time I spent in jail and how cool that was lol. But about how this changed my philosophy and personality, through this experience
Pokemon Rainbow RP Group ShoutoutSo I am not sure if you guys noticed, but if you look at pages I manage, I am part of a group called PokemonRainbow . A group I started around 2 years ago, the last time I talked about the group on my page was when the group started actually! But I think it might be a good idea to talk about it a little bit to let you know what it is, its a Pokemon Role Play group I created so members (We call ourselves the Rainbros) can have fun and share their creativity and love for Pokemon. You make your OC (Original Character) on the group, you don't even need to be a Pokemon Trainer, we allow you to be anything you want so be it a doctor, lawyer, dancer, artist, chef, grunt, rocket scientist even, just as long as you are not a Champion or Elite Four or Gym Leader then its fine, because those roles are used for the progression of the story.Pokemon Rainbow RP Group Shoutout in Personal More Like This
My Deviantart StoryMy Deviantart Story in Art Features More Like This
Deviantart is like the mother who gave birth to me. She gave me life as an artist, she allowed me to showcase my skills and creativity and even to express my ideas. Without Deviantart, there would be no Ry-Spirit!
Deviantart also allowed me to make new friends! Some of my closest friends I made are through here on this very website. And no they are not the three people in the image above, but those guys looks fun, contact me if you are one of the three people in the picture. Thanks
Deviantart has helped me grow as an artist and as a person too! Through positive feedback and compliments from the nice community!
Deviantart is like a home to me. This is the website I visit the most, I have made the most friends here, I also follow many other talented artists here who has inspired me. DA is my home!

Above is a visual representation of what I will look like if I was born a girl. The answer is I would be a hot big boob sexy Asian chick. How did this thought came about? It started when my friend omuuu asked me today. "What do you think of your appearance?", and I was like "i think im decent enough to not scare people away, and look quite handsome from some angles and lighting". Then she asked "if you were the opposite gender, would you have changed in either aspect?" and that got me thinking. I actually stumble upon this thought a few times before, and in all scenario I always end up a slut. Let me explain.
Did you know that if you are a girl, you get bonus face points? Like if you are born an ugly guy, you remain an ugly guy. However if you were born an ugly girl, you are still a girl and pe
What does your username mean?A lot of the time I read people's username and wonder what they mean, sometimes it tells of their age, their gender and interests. If you get someone called MsNaruto1994 then you can probably tell its a 18 years old Naruto fan girl. However if you get someone's username like Kill982Fuk138, then you just gota wonder and becareful with your conversation with them because they may be psychologically unstable. And I think thats what I wanna understand, what is the history behind everyone's username? Why is Chancake a cake? Why is k-hots so hot? Why is Dragonith a dragon? Why is batwa a bat? Why does Lunaoverthecow have Lucin in her name but I have never ever seen Lucin? When is EXP282 gonna get more EXP? Why is Cry-to-the-wind crying... to the wind? Why is PancakeLament so yummy?

Are you the Main Character of your own Life?Thats a funny question to ask actually, "Are you the main character of your own life?" I can't really imagine anyone saying someone else is the main character in their own life, like 'Yeah my friend Bob, he is the main character, I am just a supporting role in his epic tale, pretty much if he dies I would also have to take my own life because his story has finished'. No. Im sure everyone consider themselves as the main character of their own lives, it's my story, my life, etc etc. I guess the real question is, how important is your story?Are you the Main Character of your own Life? in Personal More Like This
Eversince I was a small ugly child, I have considered myself to be the STAR of my own movie. "The Life of Ry" is the title of the film, without sounding too egotentacles, it just mean that I felt I was destined to do great things, this might have something to do with how I was brought up, I was very optimistic, I was quite spoiled even, I was always happy and laughing, it may have something to do with me being an only child and the fact that I
