Sensibilities - Myths and Legends of Russia: the Illustrations

Sensibilities - Myths and Legends of Russia: the Illustrations
Let us have more pictures, shall we? Several of us are experiencing December blues and quite unable to rouse ourselves to the spirit of the season. I hope these may provide a few moments' entertainment at the very least. I never did manage to post these illustrations here. I did post a link to my dA gallery instead a few months ago, but links are no fun. Besides, there are fewer illustrations there. Cross-posted at told_tales and storybookland I feel so silly and awkward sometimes, posting these things in communities; especially having to sign off with my name as the illustrator. 'She waved her right hand, and lakes and woods appeared; she waved her left hand, and various birds began to fly about'Illustration for The Frog Princess. 'I'm Rumbling Thunder! 'Ivashko too walked and walked, and met the three-headed dragon'Illustration for The Three Kingdoms. ‘The fox is carrying me away … Cat Cotonaevich, rescue me!’ This is one of two of the earliest illustrations which I completed.

Take this Weeping Willow for example: 100 pens are attached to the branches of a Weeping Willow tree draw onto a circular disc 5.1 metres in diameter and made up of 10 segments.

The Definitive Hyper Realistic Pokemon Collection Not too long ago, I saw a post of several pictures in which Pokemon were depicated in a “hyper realistic” manner.

I needed a comprehensive, definitive page to always look back on; and what better place than our very own Triggerplug. Nightmare Inducing: Cartoon Characters As Crazy Killers Artist Dan LuVisi brings us this series of cartoon characters as evil, murderous, terrifying baddies.

Year In Review: The 11 Best Short Films of 2011 Over the course of the year, curating the Short Film of the Day feature has given me a deep and affecting appreciation of the art form. Before, I hadn’t given much thought to the little bastards, but the truth is that they are incredibly versatile and representative of the boundaries that film can break. They can be jokes told well or human dramas driven home. They can be a perfect bite or demand to be expanded into a full meal. They can feel classic or break out into the long, strange realm of experimentation.
