CSR Challenge 10: Lost In a Storm

James stumbled through the dark snowy wasteland, the only light and color coming from the strange glowing icicles that were scattered about. James stopped for a moment to pull his flashlight out and grab one of his extra scarfs. He quickly wrapped the scarf around his neck and pulled some of it over the bottom of his face, hoping to fend off some of the cold. He never thought snow could be so.. Cold. Maybe it was just this snow though. After all normal snow was definitely not black. The wind picked up howling and whispering in his ears. A violent shiver racked James body, and he quickly decided that he had stood around long enough. James flicked on his flashlight and resumed his walking. The wind picked up again, becoming more violent, pushing against James. The snow started

Weekly Artist Interview: burningmonk
Follow @team for weekly art tips and monthly challenges from artists you love! This Wednesday we're featuring urban photographer @burningmonk. Longtime Deviant (18 whole years!), @burningmonk specializes in capturing the Tokyo metropolis. If you want to learn how to take photos like him, he made a whole resource of photography compositional tips as well as night photography tips! And don't forget, we also feature his answers on our official Facebook page. How and when did you get started in photography? When I came to Tokyo in 2008, I had a simple camera that I barely used. Over my first year in the city, I realized I needed motivation to go out and explore it deeply, so I bought a more ‘serious’ camera and it all grew from there. What do you hope a viewer feels when they see your photographs? I’m not sure. I would hope that they simply enjoy the experience of seeing my photos. But beyond that, the specific feeling is entirely up to them. I don’t have any desire to make

Weekly Artist Interview: Ubermonster
Follow @team for weekly art tips and monthly challenges from artists you love! We have a special guest for this week's interview: artist Anthony Francisco @Ubermonster, Creative Director at Dolphin Entertainment and former Marvel Senior Visual Development Artist. You might be familiar with his work as the designer of baby Groot, Dora Milaje, Okoye, Nakia, and Thor: Ragnarok's Loki. @Ubermonster also expanded on this interview on Twitter Spaces! Be warned, the following interview will contain major spoilers for the MCU movies Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War. Let's ask what everyone wants to know: you worked for Marvel for 9 years, tell us how you got that dream job. Before going to Marvel I had already been working in the industry for 12 years. I got in because I knew Charlie Wen, the co-head of visual development and designer of the on-screen Thor, and Marvel needed a creature designer for Guardians of the Galaxy. An art colleague of mine, Kevin Chen, recommended
