Talks with Tolkien artists: Eirwen980
:iconeirwen980: - Eirwen980 is an artist from Italy whose illustrations of Tolkien remind on fairy-tales, with a wonderful use of negative space. Take a look at her gallery before reading the talk!

1.  Hello! For the beginning, could you tell us something about yourself?
This is a little difficult but basically I'm a former illustrator in love with everything fantasy/magical since I was little, I have always loved to draw and luckily I had the chance to study art and to follow my passion.  

2.  What brought you to deviatArt and how did you pick your username?

I had an old account

Officially Leaving DeviantArt.

Hey everyone.
I just wish to inform you all I am officially Leaving deviantart.
Yes. I mean this.
The reason being personal matters that i would rather not discuss, yet also dont want to happen again. Its better off avoiding the situation.
I've had an absolutley amazing time on this website and met so many amazing people.
I love you all and I wish you a farewell...You guys made me who i am today <3
I'll keep my profile activated so you can still see and comment on my art however.

The 6 years of work i put into this profile was really worth it because of you all...I could never thank you enough...all 850+ of you. But Im afraid its now time for me to go. I love you all and i wish you the best. Keep striving to be better and GET better because of it.

Love you all, and thank you again <3

Happy 27th Anniversary, Sonic The Hedgehog
27 years young.  Where has the time gone?
It seems like only yesterday when I was playing on the original Sonic game for the very first time in the early 90s.  A simpler time.  Where games' stories only relied on your imagination as you journeyed from a-b.
I think that is what has made Sonic work well when he began is that the gaming was kept simplistic therefore it was effective.
And in the 2 1/2 decades since his 1st appearance he has done a lot.  'Been on multiple generations of consoles from the Megadrive to the Xbone and had multiple animated series.  Sat AM for me is the best with it's well-written character and story archs, ensemble cast and superb art direction.  And because of the equally great protagonist in Sally Acorn :) 
So to be at this point on his 27th Birthday in June 2018 where he seems to be recovering from some games that could have been better *cough Sonic 360* *cough Sonic Boom* to games like Sonic Mania that was the highest rate

A word from us
During the chaotic reaction to the SCP wiki and our associated social media logo changes for Pride Month, a number of users began trolling our platforms in ways that required staff intervention. In the endeavor to remove toxicity, several of the users and staff members who run or moderate our social media platforms overstepped their authority in disciplining several accounts which were not actually trolling and had legitimate concerns or criticisms of the change.
We apologize for mistaking those accounts for trolls, and for overreaching with our moderation in the past few days and earlier. Staffing changes have occurred because of these mistakes, including the removal of disciplinary positions from users and staff deemed overreaching, and we are working on ensuring this will not happen again. We hope you can understand that, in the event of a large number of responses, people can make mistakes. We also hope you can appreciate that we are trying  to make amends.

Project in WIP: Forever Rogues

It's still alive after 3 years I'm working on this, h e l p.
What is this?
This is a project about the Babylon Rogues. I'm planning it along with Cerberus and CrashRatchet008.
It will be like an illustrated book, with (of course) illustrations and a text side by side. This is a not profit project, just a fan project.
What it will talk about?
As you can see, it will talk about the latest and greatest adventure that the Babylon Rogues will ever do. This story takes part after the Zero Gravity/Shooting Star Story events and it will ignore Free Riders events. (Because Free Riders doesn't exist, right?)
It won't only tell their future, but also their past.
We've created and wrote the predecessor group of Rogues, also known as their parents. As extra after each chapter, you will s

Tickle Purge RP
So, I was just watching the original Purge and realized there's a super confusing tickle scene in there...which, of course, sparked my interest in an equally confusing tickle RP.
Essentially, it's just the purge, but rather than shooting and assaulting and murdering, it's tickle torture and tickling people to death and things like that. You can play a victim who has been caught by a bunch of purgers, or you can play a purger going about their night torturing others.
Your purgers/victims can be real characters from TV, games or film or whatever, or it can be OCs.

Proud of you (vent)
So I was thinking a lot last night and I was unable to sleep.... so let me share my thoughts, I apologies if I trail off... So please bear with me.
I’m so proud of you all....
At least 90% of you have depression and anxiety and I know from experience that it’s hard to see the little things you do everyday as achievements....
But let me tell you... Even if it’s just getting out of bed... or getting changed, or brushing your teeth or eating a meal or having a drink of water....
Those are HUGE achievements!
You may not see them as that but that is the depression... that tiny voice saying that you’re worthless and can’t achieve a simple task is wrong...
Living with those depressions and anxiety makes it seem like you have to conquer the world before you’ll feel like you’ve achieved something... but know every day you wake up, you get out of bed and you achieve even one tiny thing like eating or drinking or he’ll, even waking up... those are s

The ArtRPG Dilemma
Reading for good night sleep... xD
This is an open debate. I welcome every opinion or criticism on the matter.
These are observations I've made during the years of playing ARPG, I would really like to explore ways of making the experience more immersive and enriching.
I have created my first DeviantArt account 8 years ago and for most of that time, I was participating in some kind of ArtRPG group (ARPG for short, though that may also refer to Action role-playing game). Starting with HARPG I slowly left my comfort zone to explore. ARPG art has always been a big part of what I do here and why people watch me I guess, without that, I'll be just YCH/YHH/commission seller (if I'm not already considered one). Now I don't want that to be my trademark. I'll be always indebted to people who support me. But that's not really what this is about.
First of all, I'd like to say some nice things. As an artist, gamer and student of art education, I cons

How strong is Smash Bros?
Despite being one of the most hyped and iconic franchises in the entire history of the video game industry, Super Smash Brothers doesn’t really have much presence in the VS debating community. This is possibly due to the fact that it is a crossover series. Now, this is understandable, but it does bring up an interesting question. Just how strong is Smash Brothers? I’ve searched all I can to give the answer to this. And I’m just about to give it to you. Ready? Set. Smash!
Firstly, let’s talk about Strength. There’s a commonly held misconception that Master Hand created the Smash Bros universe. But simply, this can’t be true. By Sakurai’s own words, this can’t be true. In terms of the Subspace Emissary mode, Sakurai said that “Master Hand is the ruler of the World of Trophies” while “Tabuu is the ruler of Subspace” which implies that these are two different places controlled by different forces, right? And that
