Medieval Beskar'gam by daStig177
Medieval Beskar'gam
Inspired by functionality (I'm no armor expert so don't ham on me super hard), with a helmet based off of the jousting style.

On The Trail
Don't run, you'll just die tired. Ebbing off of my energies gained from watching the EP VII trailer, I drew my Mandalorian atop his craft on the hunt.
Fallout AK112 by daStig177
Fallout AK112
Country of Manufacture: USSR
Date of Manufacture: 2012 
Caliber: 5mm

This gun really doesn't get the love it deserves.  For Ryss5an, a modder on the nexus, I've drawn a side profile view of what I believe the AK112 from Fallout 1 and 2 would look like had it been shown in detail.  For a long time I've been wanting this gun in New Vegas due to lore, nostalgia factor, and the fact that it is simply far cooler than that pansy M4 assault carbine.

Hello there, I'm an aspiring concept artist.
I try my hardest to upload one Deviaton per week, but this may not always occur due to lack of creativity or craploads of homework.
Also, don't be offended if I don't make a comment on your page if you gave me a favorite. I'm always pretty busy with something and don't always have time to thank people.

As I sit in front of my monitor I look back on where I came from.  My old work is just horrendous to look at... the past isn't a fun thing for me to reflect on.

That is especially the case now.  My biggest support in my life is no longer there.  I am without a girlfriend after 3 years of pure love and compassion.  My first real relationship draws to a close.  I can only look back on that with positive although extremely painful thoughts, unlike other past aspects of myself.  While I will never know why she lost interest in loving me when we were passionate not so long ago, I will still love her as I have always.  She's gone to college and I'm still in the confines of my high school, it only makes sense that she embrace her freedom while I huddle alone in the corner.  It turns out that after so long we just weren't compatible.

Never have I experienced more pain in my life.  I writhed and twitched, sobbed uncontrollably after the initial period of shock.  I thought about her so often before we split that that effect still lingers.  Each time I think of her I remember that it is no more and shed a tear.  

The real question is what the future holds.  I know I haven't made art for some time now.  School has worn me down to the bone.  I started feeling dead inside last week before we broke up.  I have become woefully uninspired.  My grades have suffered.  Yet I am growing stronger, harder by each minute.  At night I am most vulnerable to thought, and instead of creating work I have mourned.  But I'll keep trying.  I don't turn down a challenge, and I wont turn down life.  Only God knows what the future has in store.  

For now I need a break.  Thank god Wasteland 2 just came out.

Sorry, but this is the excuse EVERYONE who steals art gives.  Here's the problem with your arrangement.

A. You're drawing the attention away from the creator of the original content

B. This isn't an "image you found" sharing site.  Get a Flickr or an imgur account if you want to do that.  

C. The purpose of DeviantArt is for YOUR original content to get out there.  Posting works by others, whether you intend harm or not, will cause things like this to happen and give you a bad rap.

D. You may say it on your profile, but you DON'T say it on this image.  Therefore, you're stealing credit by fooling others, and therefore stealing art.

It's not me you should be apologizing to.

Ich sprache zwei Sprache und hat viele Deutschen Freunde.  Deine Geburtsland ist nicht eine gesunde Ausflucht fur deine Kompetenz.  Meiner Ansicht nach, der Durchschnitt Deustcher mehr Intelligent als der Durchsnitt Amerikaner ist.
