    This image is what brought me here in the first place. I saw it on the cover of a gaming mag and, mind blown, decided to google "Guild Wars Concept art" and landed in a place where i was pretty sure i had also found Aleksi's spawn image in 2004; CA.org It was a time of some pretty potent positive brain damage.

    Thank you Kekai !

    I used to think Rockwell's art was a delusional representation of "the good ol days", but these images proved me wrong and won me over.

    I was always more of a literatarure nerd kind of kid so my most profound inspirations back then were writers, but the W.I.T.C.H. comics (at least the original illustrations by Alessandro Barbucci) always struck a chord with me, trivial as they may be. That whole series just rocked my "needs more girls kicking ass" little world.

    Also, anything by Mucha but particularly "Princezna Hyacinta". The way she holds that flat-looking, graphic circle design like it's a three-dimensional object is still influencing my visions for my own art, even if I don't show anyone my horrible experiments :p

    When I was at the Prado in Madrid, I saw this one. You step out of the elevator and BAM! it's on the opposite wall, taking up 9.5 fucking metres, the entire wall, and I just stood there stunned into silence and actually had to wipe away a tear. Still don't know why, it's not a style I'm usually into.

    Also at the Prado, "Isabella II, veiled." It's a marble bust and you can't comprehend how amazing it is until you see it up close. It's solid fucking marble and it looks like there's a woman just behind that thin veil.

    The pictures that gave me a general goal for my life are in the Hayao Miyazaki films. I decided I would become an animator after watching it. Then I decided I would start writing stories on my own and drawing the characters. Then I decided I would get an academic degree instead of an art degree to help me write those stories, while can learn drawing on my own.

    It was also the Studio Ghibli or Hayao Miyazaki films that made me start my first watercolor paintings and to draw more.

    The pictures of galaxies rocked me a little, but it came gradually instead of suddenly. I had learned about the universe before seeing the picture, so the picture didn't come at a big surprise, but it allowed me to further admire the beauty of the reality we live in.

    The picture did made me realize again the insignificance of humanity, and that life, intelligent or non-intelligent, should be cherished not only for personal reasons, but also for its factual preciousness and rarity of existence, which is present before you and that is you yourself. It gives you one more reason to live when I feel like I have nothing to live for; it reminded me to embrace my rarity and acknowledge how lucky I am to be where I am now(this speaks from a free will perspective, that events are not determined but is due to possibility and probability). Thinking about this, sometimes I can't help but feel like I am a main character in the story of this universe, which is due to the fact that I am only conscious of my own thoughts.

    Posting in this thread again.

    I absolutely agree with the images of our planet and galaxies being posted as well. Absolutely gorgeous, and eye opening. As much as I hate portions of humanity, sometimes, for all the sickening and violent and depressing stories that come from our very own acts, I often forget the beauty that we as a race hold, and create. For every violent, greedy and malicious individual, we have those who legitemately try to make life worth living, and share their;- the human's races', collective ability, to understand.

    I look at our rich history of art and culture and literature and progression. And in these moments, I'm happy to be a person on this planet.

    I'm gonna end my ramble and post more of my favourite paintings now;

    Something about that Wu-Tang emblem really sticks in your head. It looks like their music sounds.
