Choose any media or medium and there is no question that Drones have become the white hot center of debate for a multitude of deeply consequential concerns for the entire Earth Sphere. No matter the digital end point or theatre of conversation, whether it be politics, war, privacy, pop culture, or the rise of machines – Drones or UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) are the current catalyst du jour in any number of flashpoint discussions.

From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural WorldSince human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest – until all those trees were needed to create the naval armadas of dueling empires. Only the Earth’s natural forces, like earthquakes, have been more destructive and wasteful than humanity.Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural World in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

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

Dragons, we are speaking from ancient texts gathered form the beginnings of kept records of any kind and fro

Why do we call them 'destroyers' anyway?It's a common trope in sci-fi that Space is an Ocean [WARNING - TV TROPES LINK], and so when we talk about spacecraft classification, naval terminology creeps into our work. I think some of this is unavoidable. For one, the Space is an Ocean meme is a powerful one, and it's been heavily reinforced over decades of use. The other is that while I personally expect any future space forces to evolve from the Space Commands of existing Air Forces, once you get the ability to build large space-going warships and send them days or weeks out of contact from home, the Navy's organizational model starts making more sense over the Air Force model (pace, SG Universe.)Why do we call them 'destroyers' anyway? in Personal More Like This
But that's not what I want to write about.
I think this 'creep' has extended so far that we've forgotten (or just didn't know), what all of those ship classifications even mean, or haven't taken a good look at whether a particular wet navy
Painting a Deity/godDuring painting an image of any deity/god an artist must remember that a deity as such is an intellectually emanated(manasi sristi) being. That is, each deity represents a particular and specific aspect of cosmos/God. And the image of deity is supposed to bring to mind that essence or the aspect of that particular deity.Painting a Deity/god in Personal More Like This
There are two distinct ways in which an artist creates his works. He proceeds from universal to the particular or from the particular to the universal. In the case of the imagery of the deity it is the first case. It is called Dhyatva Kuryat, the intellectual conception precedes the actual creation of work.
For example, in the imagery of Brahma, apart from representing all the lakshanas(symbols) like the four heads, four hands, lotus etc, one must make sure that the real essence of the deity is represented. Brahma is basically a Rajasik(active) deity always involved in the action of creation of universe. Hence any depiction of him as being extremely violent bordering

Part 1. Like with "The 2800" story arc, a meeting will be held on Khitomer to discuss the Iconian Threat until reports start coming in about Deep Space Nine falling Under Attack by the Iconians. A combined Federation, Klingon and Romulan Fleet will arrive in an attempt to drive off the Iconians. The Iconians soon destroy Deep Space Nine despite the Combined fleets best efforts, this will establish the Iconians as a real and imminent threat prompting each government to pump out new ship designs to better combat the Iconians.
Part 2. In the Aftermath of the destruction of Deep Space Nine, the Starfleet Corp of Engineers Mobilizes to begin construction of a new more advanced station capable of defending itself much better than the Old Deep Space Nine. Meanwhile On the Way to a Surveillance Mission to the Veridian System,there is a mysterious ship in the vicinity of the Veridian Star, The Same materials detected near the Hobus Cinder are detected on the ship r
I just can't believe itI'm still in shock about the "Final Bow" of Leonard Nimoy, I remember when I was a little kid my Parents told me they almost met him at the Atlantic City Airport. One thing I'm remembering from Star Trek TNG (Which he guest starred in) Tasha Yar said that "Death is that state in which one lives on only in the memory of others which is why it's not an end. no goodbyes. Just good memories." Not to mention McCoy saying "You know he's not really dead as long as we remember him."

2D + 3D CommissionsHello, you arrived at my Commisions page2D + 3D Commissions in Personal More Like This
If you are interested in getting a CGI image created for you, please continue to the section you are interested in. There are three sections:
2D section covers all kind of colored, shaded images, preferably drawn with outlines.
3D works is about polygonal objects of all kinds, textured and with some post-processing for nice looks.
Vector images refer to things drawn with hard lines and occasional shading, such as blueprints and ink-like drawings.
I do all kinds of art and I'm opened to different styles (vector drawings of a Star Wars ship, 3D render of a Stargate vehicle, blueprint for a Dune tank and of course every kind of original universe objects and scenes) so don't be afraid to ask for anything that you can think of.
You can also check examples of my commisioned work and private gallery works on the bottom of this entry.
