Remembering Stan Lee

Mon Nov 12, 2018, 2:03 PM

Stan Lee by KidNotorious

Today, the world is certainly a lot less super as we mourn the loss of Stan Lee. A humble genius who at one time commented that he wasn't sure that what he did meant anything, Stan Lee was a legend and he will surely be missed by many. He brought us fantastical worlds and infinite possibilities and provided not only escape but an opportunity for many.  Rest in Peace, Stan Lee, thank you for being our superhero :heart:

I never thought that Spider-Man would become the world wide icon that he is. I just hoped the books would sell and I'd keep my job.

I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic-book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize: entertainment is one of the most important things in people's lives. Without it they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you're able to entertain people, you're doing a good thing.

These are just superb. It's hard to look at them, as you lash away the tears 8( Will miss you, Stan. I hope they continue to use the magic of CG to cameo him in all future marvel movies.

how awesome was Stan Lee? get his take on race issues… we sure could use those words of wisdom in today's climate.

Thanks for including mine in your feature. I had the honor of meeting him a few times. He was a great guy!

This man built my childhood from the ground up. I will never forget the first time I cracked open my dad's old Captain America comic book and was taken to a new world entirely. That was probably 9 years ago now. I'll never forget this legend.

we truly did lose an icon
love all the amazing art dedicated to him though, he'd be so happy

this legitimately makes me sad, and i'm not even a marvel fan !
Silver0Eye Featured By Owner Edited Nov 13, 2018
A man, and a legend of its time, and beyond. We truly lost a great artist, writer and wonderfull person. Someone that created own worlds, universes and their awesome citizens. A creator of storys, that inspired many people around the globe, and let them take a break of the grey, everyday. He completed his journey here, and now sets out to a new one, with adventures, beyond the horizion.

Love this <3 
What a legend 
Not immortal in body but only in soul so it seems
thanks so much for sharing!
Nall608 Featured By Owner Edited Nov 13, 2018
Spider-Man was the first Marvel Super Hero I read and was one of my favorites. Yesterday I couldn't stop crying when I learned about this as it saddens me that we lost a great man who gave us so much. This was an excellent art tribute you made. R.I.P. Stan Lee, thank you for all the hero's you created for us to look up too and I hope you are at rest in Heaven. :(

I respected him, when he was alive.
ShoJoe Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Why? Why not respect him when he's dead? You 1 of those people that believe the bs some people are saying about him?
FirstDrellSpectre Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018  Hobbyist Artist
I never said that. I was thinking that many start respecting artists after their deaths. I still respect Stan Lee, I also respected him when he was alive.
ShoJoe Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Ok then. Sorry if I assumed wrong.

I still respect him during and after he was alive. While I didn't get too indepth with the comics, I watched a good portion of the Marvel superhero movies that have come out in recent years and enjoyed my time I spent with a few of them.
LathonAdkins Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018
Stan may be gone. but he will never be forgotten. he was a legend. And Legends Never Die.
The-JaPon-ii Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018  Hobbyist Writer
I grew up loving Spiderman. He is my favorite superhero. He was relatable and funny. 

On that note, my family would come together sometimes on the weekends to watch marvel movies. We had a running gag joke of spotting Stan Lee, we considered those "Spot the Stan Lee" moments as one of the best moments in the movie.

It makes me upset to know he past, i would have loved him to live on a little longer, but knowing he died peacefully is good enough. I'll miss him.

Thanks for everything Stan...say hi to Jack for me...Excelsior!
Kingmolestia Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018
This man has been a household name in my families lives since we've had a home, for over 50+ years he's been apart of our lives. Stan Lee is a true inspiration and a legend, he is and always will be, my idol. Stan Lee has indirectly affected millions and millions of lives. He now lives in our hearts and our minds. Let us never forget this inspiration of a man. Live on true believers, and excelsior.
IkeFanboy64 Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Though I don't care much about Marvel, it does truly suck that someone of such influence is now on the other side.
kyrtuck Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
He lived long and did so much.
SockTheSheep Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018
Such a sad day :(
I would always smile whenever Stan Lee would pop up on the screen in all his movies
Now I will miss those lovely and always funny moments :(
rest in peace and thank you for all the laughs you have given us~

We'll all miss him. He's making comics up in the stars now. <3
Ehsol-namu Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018

I am no avid comic book reader. My mother doesn’t exactly encourage it, so yeah…..But even she admits that Stan Lee has done so much for the world, and I have watched the Spiderman movies with my family and to this day Spiderman remains my most favorite comic book superhero, and I am grateful for Stan Lee for creating him. I feel in a bit of lose because I did enjoy Stan's cameos in the movies and with his death it means that we will never see him anymore in the future movies, but....he has had a long and fulfilling life and....yeah, may he rest in peace.

 I'll remember the laughs you brought. I'll remember how many times I curled up and cried. I'll remember the countless times I screamed in outrage. I shall remember for always, Stan Lee. Your legacy shall carry on through the generations. I hope to see you in the next life.

Stan Lee... you are one super hero... and you'll be missed.

In a way I`m happy for him, like some one before me said: he had a good run.
95 years, that`s not bad.
He lived long enough to see his creations reach a large audience and be adapted into good movies.

Ehsol-namu Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018
Yeah, I feel happy for him as well ^^ 
xXThe-Needed-ManXx Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018
I don't read super-hero stories anymore,but this Prolific creator is an inspiration for me. I like it that he never gave up this dream. Rest In Peace Stan Lee.

Ouch - But seriously, jadenarcher1998, please post your porn somewhere else. Quite a few of us are geniunely sad about the loss of Stan Lee.
I, for one, really feel like this is the sort of thing that shouldn't happen. Stan Lee was one of those people that I just assumed would go on for ever - I never really realised that he was 95 and his death during my lifetime was inevitable. He really was such a good man, and all the quotes from him that I've seen clearly show this. He will be missed, and he will never be forgotten by the community that he created. He built a world from the ground up, and so many millions of people have come to love his creations.

I've never been a fan of superheroes in general, but I have immense respect for Stan Lee. Even though I've never read a Marvel comic in my life, I understand the massive impact that Stan Lee had on the world. I hope that whatever afterlife he's in is one he deserved.
StarWarriorRobby Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's all thanks to Stan Lee that we not only have our favorite superheroes in all of media, but we also have the opportunity to become heroes too in any other way. Sure, things won't be the same without him, and our MARVEL shows, movies and comics will be empty without his famous cameos. But, his legacy will on forever and continue to inspire everyone to make their superhero dreams come true. All we can do now is continue to live on, keep facing front, hold on to those memories with Stan Lee and keep doing what is right.

We'll never forget you, Stan Lee. 

Thank you for everything.

Everytime Stan Lee would show up on the screen me and my dad would always scream:
"Stan Lee!"
And then laugh :(

The saddest part is, he won't get to see how the greatest fruit of his labor (the Infinity War movie) turned out.

Thank You for Your Feedback on Eclipse!

Last week, we announced the Beta launch of DeviantArt Eclipse — a completely redesigned version of DeviantArt that puts more emphasis on artists and their art. As a Beta release, Eclipse is still under development and only available to a small portion of the DeviantArt community. We use the Beta release to gather feedback that allows us to closely analyze deviant engagement and sentiment.

Over 4,000 deviants have already tried Eclipse and many have shared their invaluable and much-appreciated feedback. We’ve received nearly 1,700 individual Eclipse feedback reports — including 407 bug reports, 532 feature requests, and 748 pieces of general commentary. Our team has read through and triaged over 60% of these reports and has a goal of completing all of them in the coming week. Thank you to every deviant who has taken the time to share feedback. Whether you’re someone who provided a few words or several paragraphs of candid response, we appreciate the passion you have for helping us ensure Eclipse will meet the needs of our diverse community.

This Is Just the Beginning of Eclipse

As with most Beta releases, we launched Eclipse knowing there were bugs and highlighted a handful of the most obvious in our release journal. We wanted to release sooner than later so we can begin this journey together – gathering feedback and insights and applying it into our development, fixes, and improvements. Plus, as Beta Testers, this is what you signed up for! We need your deviant-expertise to help identify bugs everything from baby bugs to elusive, exotic bugs.

Based on feedback, it’s clear there are certain areas of Eclipse that are leaps and bounds ahead of the “green site.” It’s also clear there are some things that need to be improved. We expected this and continue to welcome your feedback — the good and the bad. We’re in this together and want to hear from deviants every step of the way.

We're Exploring More Ways To Customize Your Profile

Eclipse provides new ways to personalize your Profile, including the ability to select Header Art for your page, linking to your social media platforms, and stating your commission status. However, with the removal of Custom Box, we heard, loud and clear, that deviants want more options to display content.We’re also in the process of exploring other ways you can customize your Profile.We’ll be sharing tips and varied examples of ways you can really customize Profiles. In the meantime, here’s one example of how @katy-l-wood is testing Eclipse’s current abilities to enhance her Profile.
Many deviants asked for the ability to showcase a single deviation on your profile. This is something we are already working on. We’d also like to clarify that, for the foreseeable future, Custom Boxes within Groups will remain as they are. Groups will eventually be redesigned with Eclipse in mind, but that process won’t be complete for many months. We’ll provide advance notice about any removal of Custom Boxes in Groups.

Addressing Your Other Top Concerns

The new Feedback allows easy viewability of your most recent and unread notifications; however, we’ve seen concerns about Feedback needing improvement as a whole. For example, deviants report it’s cumbersome to remove notifications and it’s hard to remove notifications in bulk. We’ll be making the “remove” button more accessible so that you can one-click remove (or one-click save) just as you could on the “green site.” We’re still reviewing the experience of mass removing feedback and hope to have updates soon.We are currently working on issues regarding Header Art and avatars – specifically, their size and quality. Icon codes and plz accounts will be coming soon to Eclipse. :iconlaplz:The new text editor makes it easy to write Literature, with the option to add formatting and illustrations to your work. That said, the Literature experience in Eclipse is still a work in progress. As we mentioned in the Beta journal, using Literature and journal thumbnails is not yet finished. Literature thumbnails in the sidebar (under “More Like This”) are also not yet finished.Improving the display of Literature thumbnails is something our Product and UX teams are already actively working on improving.Having a “Show More” link on deviation descriptions and comments allows for a cleaner viewing experience; however, based on feedback, we've removed "Show More" from deviation descriptions and comments.While search in Gallery, Favourites, and Journals didn’t make it into the Beta version of Eclipse, it’s our aim to bring this functionality to Eclipse.Several deviants brought up that the ability to include thumbs by pasting a URL (or thumb code) is not currently possible. We mentioned this in the original announcement, but we want to reiterate this is not working as intended and will be implemented in the future.

Of course, this isn’t a complete list. It represents our first step at addressing some of your top concerns and we’ll be sharing more responses and updates — including bug fixes — in the weeks ahead.

Keep it Coming!

In the release process, things are constantly evolving as we gain insights and implement updates. Please keep in mind these updates can take time to get used to. As you continue to explore Eclipse, share your thoughts and concerns through the Eclipse overall feedback or bug report/feature request forms. While we encourage general discussion in the journal comments, using the official form allows us to triage and act on feedback in a quicker, more manageable way.

We also want to give a shout-out to the amazing deviants who’ve produced really thorough Eclipse reviews:
