Aviary Happy Birthday by mysteryxio
Aviary Happy Birthday
For those of you who get the pun, I know, I'm terrible.  For those who don't, look it up.  Anyways, this is my B-day for the site, who for many years has helped artists of all kinds.  From traditional, to storytellers, to modernist, to fanartistry, deviantart is one of the greatest websites around.  I actually had trouble trying to decide what to make.  After seeing a few birds in the pic I decided to just go with that.  Some are obvious, others you need a little imagination to see I think, but if there is one place that's got plenty of that it's this site.  How many do you see?  Which one's are your favorites?  I know I am not a very good artist, but hey it's the thought that counts right.

You ever have one of those days when you don't really feel anything, like there are no emotions to you at all?  Well that's pretty much been what my life is like now.  For the longest time, I've had this numbness inside of me.  As if I lack the ability to feel things long term.  I've Beverly held a grudge against anyone and my anger subsides fairly quickly.  The moments of happiness don't last long.  Whenever I get sad, it somehow just goes away.  It's kinda how people describe loosing their faith, the only difference being that for me it's emotional more than it is spiritual.  I know I should be happy with my life and thankful for what I have, but there is just this emptiness and it all started a few years ago.  I don't have the exact date but I just remembered not having any drive or passion anymore and the numbness just followed.  Now I've graduated from college and I have no idea what to do.  Even before I graduated, I had no idea or passion of what I wanted to do and now...I don't know.  I mean what kind of life can truly be lived without any type of drive or passion toward anything?  I know I'm alive but it doesn't seem like I'll ever experience what it is to live.  I mean, there isn't really any point...if you can't enjoy it in the long term, ya know.  
Krampus by FStitz
Krampus has recently become more known thanks to movies and TV. From Christmas episodes of Grimm and American Dad to the Horror Comedy movie of Krampus, he is starting to gain more and more fame. With fame comes internet recognition and fanart. Now there is art that is well done, art that is mediocre, and art that was done that makes it look like it was done in Microsoft Paint from the 1990's.

This drawing falls well into the first category. The colors and shading are astounding. I love all the minor details that are in the picture itself. The cracked walls of the buildings, the well defined muscles on the creatures, the ridges on the horns are all intricate. The contrast of the background with the rest of the picture really draws your eye and help tell the story. The way Krampus and his cohorts look just scream demonic and the Christmas tree helps to identify what this is supposed to be. The bells are a nice touch, breaking up the singular color in each creature and the dark colors really help the eyes and mouths pop.

Not everything in this picture is perfect though and like every viewer, there are things I would've liked to seen differently. The Krampus story, as I know it, does not involve any creatures that are like Krampus, however I believe that this was a good choice on the artist's part. Having three demons creates greater emphasis on what is going on and really helps to convey the story and takes up space well. I am also not fully versed in Krampus folklore, so I may be missing something. If so I apologize. The slingshot, though a nice subtle touch, was something that I didn't notice until later, it did not stand out as much as I would have liked. It made it appear as if the three were only going after a child who was innocent. The placement of the tusks in the leader seem awkward and tusks in the one with the beak seems unnecessary. These are minor though and, as stated before, they are more about personal preference, as is the case with all art.

Overall, I greatly enjoy both this picture and the artist's style. I hope that they continue to amaze us with the art that they create. This truly does get across the darker side of Christmas.

This was something I drew a few years ago and I thought that I had lost it. It was recently rediscovered in a magical place under my bed. I love the game and he is probably one of my favorite characters ever. It's not exact and I've added a few quotes from the game but it is still mine and even if it isn't perfect I love it all the same. Someone please make a movie based off of this game.

I signed up as AJcamp64 on Mad Wonderland, I'm just hoping to get more info about the clubs (as they do not have a general info like the others) and why a song keeps playing whenever I open a page

Oh I believe it's cause the Alice of the Clubs is re-editing the description for the clubs but to give you a general idea the Clubs are the tanks. Meaning they focus more on defense and support. ^^
