Why Is Winter Coming
Winter is Coming
Few phrases are more closely associated with the Game of Thrones fandom than this one. We know that winters in Game of Thrones are long, often lasting several years. It is also difficult for people in that world to predict when the seasons will change, the Citadel even has a special, rare breed of white raven they send out to deliver the news of the changing season. While this may just be the way that the seasons in the world of Game of Thrones

10 Reasons You Shouldn't Quit ArtYou know i keep my journals short, so i'll jump right to it.
1. When you get an idea for a character, or an illustration or a comic, you can just draw it. You don't have to browse and see if anyone else drew it already, or commission other artists to do it.
2. If you get really good at art, your favorite artist might watch you back.
3. You might eventually get paid for it.
4. Because even if there's tons of art out there, and many great artists, no one, and i mean NO ONE can ever draw what you draw. There can be similar ideas, but only you can bring your particular flavor of art to life.
5. The awesome comments. The better you get at art, the more awesome and elaborate comments you get. Who doesn't want to get praised?
6. Art trades with really good artists!
7. Because quitting is lame.
8. Because when IRL people ask you what you do and you say you're an artist, you get the most interesting reactions. It never gets old.
9. Because you get to browse the internet a

Storage Areas or Twilight Zones?
Most basements and attics are part of the house, but not a part of the home.
Especially in childhood, these poorly-lighted areas are, at best, under a family’s occupation – but one can never trust that any spectral entities or spirits who might be there, abiding in the shadows, are ever fully loyal to the current family living in their home. Here’s a gallery of deviations to help you recall that first afternoon you eve

Our Top 5 On-Screen Dragons: A Guide to
The dragon is a staple of so many fantasy stories that it can be difficult to keep up with them all.
Dragons in different universes abide by different rules; some are friendly, some are clever, some are pure evil, and some are trainable. What all dragons have in common is that in the realm of TV and movies, they need to look good to properly play their part in the story. There are hundreds of dragons that have shown up on
The Tree as Beautiful Machine
While searching DeviantArt for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on DeviantArt that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.
Manavata means “humanity.” A social movement was born in India bearing that name, with “Humanity is our identity” as their guiding mantra. Like the many facets making up a sparkling diamond, here is a collection of photographs to remind us we are, together, one beautiful humanity.
“If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.”

In A Maze
Most of the mazes in our gallery are of the outdoor garden variety. At least the “contestant” seeking escape from these mazes has the sun’s position to anchor their own movements. Indoor mazes are more difficult, with the addition of overlapping hallways, mirrored walls and ceilings and total darkness being possible components. Whose idea of “fun” was this, anyway?

Hi there, my name is Mike and I'm a hobbyist that wants someday to become a professional.|
I started to be interested in digital art 3 years ago. I didn't really worked or improved myself in the first year and also, I was taking many breaks, BIG breaks. However as I woked more, my interest grew and when I saw a beautiful peace of art I always wondered how to do it. Eventually I started to try and do it, learning all the techniques and having a lot of fun.
I'm working in Photoshop, Cinema4D, RealFlow and AfterEffects. This is also the order in which I began working in them.
