  1. New Rat Queens Artist Stjepan Šejić Explains The Science Of Female Fantasy Armor

    Ah, those skimpy outfits make perfect sense now!

    Armor for women in fantasy and comic book settings is either dangerously impractical or just entirely nonsensical. Or is it? Rat Queens' new artist, Stjepan Šejić, thinks he knows the secret, and wants to share it with all you clueless dudes out there.

  4. Superheroines Jump Into Action In This Delightful Fan Art

    Today in Awesome

    DeviantArt user Pryce14, AKA Jamal Campbell, has some awesome art in his gallery, including a ton of great art of superheroines!  His ladies are in proportion, sexy but not objectified, and generally look pretty badass (check out that Psylocke!).

  5. DeviantArt Teams With Madefire for User-Created Digital Publishing

    Digital comics are great, but largely they're just stagnant images of pages of a print book. Not that there's anything wrong with traditional comics, but there's just more potential with digital formatting. To help artists harness that potential Madefire has created a Motion Book Tool to bring sequential art to life, and DeviantArt just teamed up with them to let its users create vibrate motion comics.

  6. If Websites Existed In Game of Thrones’ Westeros

    I See What They Did There

    Caldwell Tanner didn't use HBO's Join the Realm website to create these unique House Sigils. Instead, he came up with his own designs for what popular websites might hang from their proverbial castle walls if they lived in the world of Game of Thrones. And we decided to join in on the fun. Look at the House Sigils and mottos from Twitter, Wikipedia, The Mary Sue, and more!

  7. Star Wars Characters as ’80s High Schoolers are Pretty Bodacious

    Denis Medri made seven portraits of Star Wars characters in the style of kids from a 1980s High School movie a la The Breakfast Club or Ferris Bueller's Day Off. You have all your standard cliques represented: Preps, racers, punks, and more! These pictures are truly awesome and make you go, "Yeah! Han would totally be the 'bad boy' who always works on his car." That said, my question is this: Would any of these '80s Star Wars kids have actually gone to see Star Wars? Make the jump for a gallery of the rest of DenisM79's pictures and a link to his deviantART page.

  8. Check Out This High Fantasy Take on The Avengers

    Fans Do Cool Things

    Fanart never ceases to amaze us. The time and the talent poured into depictions of often fictional characters, the results of which have the power to even outdo the PR teams and artists who are actually employed to promote the thing in the first place. It's what we love about fandom: the power that fans have to take one thing they love and mix it with so many other things. Like these super intense illustrations by deviantartist theDurrian, which takes characters from The Avengers and infuses them with "high/dark/epic fantasy."

    You show me a kid who has never wanted to be a superhero, and I'll show you a lying kid.

Read on for a gallery!

  10. This Fan-Made Harry Potter Tarot Deck Is Magical

    This is just like magic!

    I'm not a tarot user but I find the art on many decks to be incredibly beautiful. A few years ago, Dark Horse was going to produce a Buffy the Vampire Slayer deck but it fell through. These fan-made Harry Potter tarot will never be sold in stores due to copyright issues but artist Laura Freeman, nasubionna on DeviantArt, did some really great work on them. Hit the jump to see more, plus her justifications for who she chose for which card.
