Inspirational feature: Tomb Raider Concept art
Hey Concepteez,
There is a lot of excitement in the DA community regarding the latest release of Lara Croft game. We thought it is the right time to show you some concept art from the game.
Enjoy the images:

If you want to download the high res images make sure to visit the source and also check out 'The art of survival from BradyGames'
So the real question, are you buying this game or have already bought it?
Is it better than the previous games? and do you like the artwork in the game?
With that I wish you have you a great weekend,

Featured Artist: Andy Hutchinson
This week’s featured artist is Andy Hutchinson :iconandyhutchinson:. Until very recently Andy was part of the Aus-Art admin team. He took on the role around the same time as many of the current admins did (myself included). This might not have been so long ago, but in that time Andy's eye for detail and understanding of photography has taught me a thing or two. Even if he doesn't know it. On behalf of the Aus-Art admin team I'd like to thank Andy for his contribution to the group, and wish him luck with his new job. Though his job might take him away from his role on the team, I certainly hope it doesn't take away from his pursuit as a photographer.
We have many skilled photographers contributing to our galleries on Aus-Art, but Andy's work frequently cause to pause, wonder, and reflect.

And last but not least is a surprising blas

Women in Art
I just read through the new dA article "Authentic Citizenship: Part 2," and I was really kind of dismayed.  I mean, cool artists and advice and all, but.... You know, I'm a decent comic buff, a sci fi and fantasy fan since I could read my father's books, and fell in love with art at least half from the illustrations on the covers of said books (thank you Michael Whelan!).  But I'm still analytical and honest to a fault, and I have to say that my love of comic and fantastic art requires a huge tolerance for lots of objectifying images of women.  More even than average, and most figurative art is about the female form.  Still, I follow a lot of incredibly talented artists, in illustration as well as other fields, and many of them are women.  So I thought, maybe the field is opening up.  But in that article, which mentions 23 separate professionals, not including the 2 spotlighted, the only woman mentioned was a model, not an art

Life After Pi: please watch

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 26, 2014, 9:53 PM
Hi guys,

I know this probably won't reach many people but I feel obliged to share. Remember when the VFX team for Life of Pi went bankrupt 11 days before winning an Oscar for their work on Life of Pi, and didn't even get a thank you from the Director for making that movie possible? This is a documentary on that; and very much worth your time.

Spread the word, and support VFX!
