Shepherd's Journal - Missing Page by smartguy123
Shepherd's Journal - Missing Page
"The Heart of Atlantis."
"It's the Heart of Atlantis. That's what the shepherd was talking about. It wasn't a star, it was some kind of crystal, like these. Don't you get it? The power source I've been looking for, the bright light you remember, they're the same thing!"
'It cannot be..."
"It's what's keeping all of these things, you, all of Atlantis, alive!"
"Then where is it now?'
"I don't know. I don't know. You'd think something this important would've been in the journal but... Unless, the missing page..."

I've been in an Atlantis phase recently so I decided to watch Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire last weekend. I love this movie, and I'm really glad it's starting to reach cult status. It's one of my favorite Disney films. In fact, it's very similar to Laputa: Castle in the Sky, which is probably why I like it so much. Both films include a search for a lost civilization, a princess of the civilization that wears a glowing magical pendant connected to a mother crystal that is wanted by the movie's villian. Both have a young man that falls in love with said princess and both try to uncover the secrets of the lost civilization. In my opinion, Ghibli's film told the story better, but I still love Disney's effort. :) So anyway, I also decided to draw a page from the Shepherd's Journal, the ancient book that leads the team to Atlantis. This page refers to the Heart of Atlantis, and was of course stolen by the villain to hide it from everyone. I tried to be as faithful as possible, but unfortunately I always ran out of room for the lines of Atlantean script, so they're cut off at the ends. Oh well. I'm not Milo. XD

The best scene, and best music, in the movie:…

Favorite Style of Art: Fan art, but I like all art
Deviant Status: Artist and Art Appreciator

I am mostly an art appreciator but I do love to draw, whether it's a doodle during class or a drawing I work on for days at home. I don't consider myself to be an excellent artist, not at all. I just draw for fun and because I enjoy doing it. Most of my drawings fall into two categories. Art projects I worked on in art camp or art class, and art I do completely for fun. The art I do for fun is mostly fan art, such as drawings of characters from my favorite shows, movies, and video games. Most of my fan art is from the past several years, as I've strarted to draw less and less of it.

I joined DeviantART mostly to look at and comment on the AMAZING artwork that can be found everywhere on this site. Some of this art just completely blows me away. I'm confident that these emerging artists will go great places some day. I also joined to upload some of my works, both fan art and art projects, and see what other artists think of them.

I don't do much on YouTube, mainly like and comment stuff, but here's my channel :…

Also just a quick serious question. Are my watchers out there? I know I haven't been posting a lot of stuff recently, mainly because I've been busy and haven't had a lot of time to sit down and draw something for an hour plus. I've also mostly run out of older things to upload, so I don't have the luxury of pulling something out and uploading it without actually creating it. I have several things planned and I hope to draw and upload them between now and the end of the year. I do art mainly for myself, but it's nice to be able to display it publicly on a site like this. It lets me get feedback and talk with other artists about things we all enjoy and have in common. I don't really care about having a huge following but it would be nice to know that some people keep up with me. If no one looks at my art then what's the point of uploading it? Please leave a quick comment, just so I know I still have people that care about what I upload. Thanks everyone! :)
