It's been a really long time since I last had a feature so a few days ago I posted a topic on the DeviationThumbshare forum. The idea was for members to share the art they were most proud of and I have to say I am surprised with the quality of works posted!
Here is a selection for you to enjoy. Go leave your comments, add new faves and spread the love!!! :dalove:

Lately I've been seeing several deviations on the front page with the word ADOPT in the title, and the artist asking for people to adopt them but in exchange of money, via paypal or whatever. How the fuck does this work?

Is it like "pay me and I'll send you a nice HQ print" or just "pay me money and we'll pretend you're taking care of this drawing I made"? Cause that's just sad.

Assassin's Creed - A Feature

NOTHING IS TRUE. EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED.



So, for a while now I've developed an obsession with Assassin's Creed.
Open world games are the best invention since... the invention of video games, I swear.

Been looking for some AC art here on dA and found lots of awesomeness, so a feature was in order.

I am very very pleased to announce the winners of the contest 'At the End of Time'!! :la:


The objective of the contest was to envision the concept of the end of time and provide a personal interpretation. How do you imagine the end of time will be? What do you think will happen? What will happen to the people, what will happen to the world when it faces its final moments? What will it look like?


I can tell you that choosing the top 3 was no easy task because there were many very very good entries, but the judges have made their decision.

Before presenting the winners I want to thank all the members that submitted their entries. That alone deserves a special mention, I wish I could give you all a prize!!!


But now... ON TO THE WINNERS!!!!!


*drumroll*

Meet Drew Struzan, the guy that drew all the movie posters I (we, surely) love: Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, The Goonies, Star Wars and more... probably the best movie poster artist.

I found this nice interview, check it out:

This is why I love artists so much. Beacuse they can create art like this

PETACHE by boykokolev

with oil paintings.

A modern day masterpiece if you ask me.

Seriously... oil paintings!!!! I couldn't be that precise if I had the shaaaarpest pencil at my disposal and this person does this with brushes.

CLEARLY deserves more faves and comments that it's gotten so far.

And his whole gallery is worth having a look.

Hope everybody's doing ok!!

It's been really hot here these past weeks and I wanted to bring some cold into my life -I very much prefer cooler climates to hot ones, especially with this suffocating hot we've had this summer- plus there have been having some heavy rains this past week, so I thought it'd make a nice theme for this feature. Hope you like it!

...  Everyone!

Hope it's been a good first day of the year! Fortunately, mine has been so far. Also, my summer vacations start today today so I really can't complain, can I? 1 month off of work!!


I don't have any fancy presents to give you but I wanted to share with you my start-of-the-year hymn

Hope everyone's doing fine!

This is a small update to drop two quick notes

The first one is to let you all know that the two clubs I'm admin of are now official DeviantArt groups


:icondigitalartnetwork: and :iconhogwartsart:


Feel free to drop by and join us if you feel like it!



.II.

The second one is to recommend a beautiful animated movie called Mary and Max

.I.

I just realised last Nov 1st was my DeviantArt birthday... been here for three years... it certainly doesn't seem that long, and it also means I'm three years older than I was, lol (am I good at maths or what?)


.II.

On another note, I want to thank the staff of noticias for featuring Shine, shine, shine as their recommended artwork of the week.
Gracias gente!! Un honor :tighthug:


.III.

And on yet another note, but not at all less important, please check out the art of John Morrisey a.k.a. PENANDINKDRAWINGS. He's got truly awesome pieces, most of them done in pen and ink, plus a lot of patience.

I just finished reading La sombra del viento (The Shadow of the Wind) by Spanish novelist Carlos Ruiz Zafón and just LOVED IT.

This feature revolves around the story. Some works are directly related to the novel, others allude to certain moments and parts of it.

If you have read the novel, you might understand what each deviation has to do with; if you haven't read it... go to your nearest bookstore and get a copy!!!


Whatever your case is, I really hope you like this feature.

:love:
