So I am 22 year old Sculptor trying to figure out how this "real world works". I'm rather short, only 4'9". By the ones who love me I am called a dwarf because not only am I short but I have red hair and work well with metal and wood :P so I just accept it. I'm also crazy about a few things such as comics/tv shows/BOOKS/and DRAGONS ! ! ! so if you want me to go all crazy on you just mention one of those. I also love to cosplay and to use my artistic talents to help with that.

(Note. This blog of mind is kind of all over the place at times. From my art, others' art, pretty pictures of nature or cute ones of animals, to cosplays and other fandom stuff. Anyways One day I may get more organized and make one just for art, or just for fandoms, but for now, this is what it is. Hope you enjoy it !)

Stunning Anamorphic Artworks That Can Only Be Seen With A Mirror Cylinder

A year ago, we wrote about Jonty Hurwitz and his amazing anamorphic art that can only be seen in the reflection of a mirrored cylinder. Although the technique was created in the late Renaissance (16th century), artist like Jonty and István Orosz made it popular again.

What’s interesting about these anamorphic pieces is that most of them look like rubbish without a mirror cylinder. Some of them are so distorted that you can only guess at what the reflected image will reveal. You could probably even use this technique to pass a message on to a fellow secret agent.

Hurwitz says he creates his art by scanning a three-dimensional object and then using special software to come up with new physical forms, but each artist has their own technique.

Noelle Stevenson's NIMONA has been a part of my life for a solid two years, so it’s weird to think that it’s going to be over in a li’l over three weeks (??whhhaa???). 
This is the webcomic that got me into webcomics, and that’s the coolest thing. I just realized that my first comic starts the very week that NIMONA ends, and I’m getting a really strong Circle of Life vibe. 

This is so nice. Thank you.

Where is the Wheel of Time HBO series?

They can’t handle the accurate portrayal of the captivating and terrifying GoT ladies. You think they’re ready for Nynaeve?

Photographs of Mirrors on Easels that Look Like Paintings in the Desert by Daniel Kukla

Portfolio / Lens Blog

Last spring, Brooklyn-based photographer, Daniel Kukla, took refuge for a month in a cabin in the Joshua Tree National Park as part of an artist’s residency by the United States National Park Service. From sun up to sun down, Kukla roamed the desert with a mirror, easel, and camera. He photographed the propped mirror to catch the opposing elements within the environment, creating abnormal yet striking imagery as a result.

A character can still be a great character without being a good person.

In fact, some of the best characters are terrible people.

Because a character’s worth should be based on how complex and interesting they are, not their morality if they were real.

Industrial designer Scott Summit, of Summit ID, creates incredibly beautiful prosthetic pieces. They are created on a 3D printer, with the user’s other limbs as a point of reference, resulting in beautifully symmetric limbs.  

His philosophy of creating personal and elegant rather than mass-produced, functional pieces really shows through the grace of his work.  

Some of the more beautiful things that come out of this philosophy range from recreating a tattoo that was lost to matching a purse to looking like a piece of sport equipment: whatever is important and personal to the wearer’s life become reflected in their new prosthetic limb.

Concept art and animation panels for Treasure Planet 2

Before Treasure Planet was shown in cinemas, Thomas Schumacher, then president of Walt Disney Feature Animation, mentioned the possibilities of having direct-to-video releases for Treasure Planet as well as a television series. He stated that they already had “a story and some storyboards and concepts up and a script for what a sequel to [Treasure Planet] could be,” and that they also had a “notion” of what the series would be.

Director Jun Falkenstein and screenwriter Evan Spiliotopoulos began early development on Treasure Planet 2. In the sequel, Jim Hawkins and Kate, his love interest and classmate at the Royal Interstellar Academy, must team with Long John Silver to stop the villainous Ironbeard from freeing the inmates of Botany Bay Prison Asteroid. Willem Dafoe was set to voice Ironbeard. The sequel was canceled when Treasure Planet disappointed at the box office.
