I remember that Day. I was at university. A friend, half Japanese was supposed to have a presentation in Japanese History that day. She walked up to me nervously. “Stefanie!” - “What’s wrong, are you nervous?” - “There was an earthquake in Japan!” - “Yeah? That happens a lot there. You should know best.” -“No. I mean, a really strong one! My mother is over there! She’s in Gunma! What if something happened to her?” - “I’m sure she’s okay, calm down!” - “I’ve been trying to reach her the whole morning.”
Later that day she finally reached her mother, who was okay. They were only scared, because even in Gunma, the earthquake was kinda strong.
When I got home and watched TV, I finally realized what she meant by “a really strong one”. I spent hours watching the news and immediately contacted my friends and family over there (which of course were alright, since they don’t live nearby).
There are still so many people out there who haven’t got their homes back. And a lot of people lost their lives two years ago.
Japan is my second home. It’s been two years since the catastrophe, but I still grieve when I see those pictures. I’m happy none of my family and friends was involved. And so I think about others whose families and friends were.
I watched the movie of the trailer above last year. I’m posting it, because people shouldn’t forget what happened two years ago. My thoughts are with the victims.
Seriously, if you’re on DeviantArt and don’t know these, you definitely missed SOMETHING!
Sculptures as rich in details as these, I can hardly imagine how much talent and patience Ellen must have. Take a look!
-Ellen’s DeviantArt Gallery-
-her etsy shop-
as far I could read, she also offers custom made sculptures from time to time. I hope one day I’ll be able to get one :D I LOVE THEM
Paperman. Animated Disney short.
The full movie. I’m posting it, because I’ve seen it on several tumblr blogs I’m following, and it’s very inspirational!
I love the style, and mostly the animation of the facial expressions and the character design itself. Truly beautiful short movie. That’s what we want to see from Disney :D
Phobs, Phobs. I don’t think there are a lot of people on deviantArt doing comic/manga styled pictures who doesn’t know Phobs.
The young Russian artist has such a stunning unique comic style, like I’ve never seen somewhere else in my live. The characters have such lively expressions, I can hardly stop looking at the drawings. It’s always a pleasure when new works are uploaded. I’m hoping so hard that one day, this person will create animations, far greater than Disney. I truly admire this artist. So what are you waiting for?
No time to draw >___<
have a little piece of my Christmas Luck ♥
I’ll be back after the finals!
nya~ I know instagramm’s no real photography.
Wanted to show you some shots (mostly taken from the train, other’s from my former highschool)
from today’s lovely landscape anyway. Snowy snowy weather makes me feel so much better ;D
“Eric Hibbeler is a illustrator and concept artist who has worked in video games, animation and print media since 2008. He currently lives and paints in Kansas City, Missouri.”
What fascinated me first when seeing Eric’s Gallery on DeviantArt was the Unique environment design. That’s why I’d like to present you some of these pictures first.
what I loved most was the choice of colors. But also the technique. The sketchy way of digital painting with a few details added here and there and it looks already perfectly clean. Just fantastic!

The art of Aaron Jasinki caught my eye when DeviantArt featured this artwork on it’s facebook page:
ever since I’m in love with the paintings and the style. I think I’ve never seen so many colors just perfectly working together.
At least looking at his gallery on DeviantArt is a must for everyone who wants to enter a different world!
