RickRoll in Type by Dencii RickRoll in Type by Dencii
For years, wars had both been waged and settled through his name. He had stood time and traces of his presence will be forever upon us. His pure awesomeness had been a source of wicked joy to those capable enough to harbor it, and great woe to its countless casualties.

To those who wish to ask how I did this, be warned! I have nearly lost my entire vision for staring at magnificence in its purest form for hours. My sanity and artistic capabilities are quickly following suit. This is the price that I must pay for attempting to contain that which is uncontainable. I have succumbed to The Great RickRoll!!!


I was saving this for April Fool's but I just can't contain myself.

Never...

...gonna give you up
...gonna let you down
...gonna run around and desert you
...gonna make you cry
...gonna say goodbye
...gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Peace everyone and don't forget to take it easy! Live and Laugh! And watch out for Mother Teresa. Then after Mother Teresa would probably Ann Frank but I'm thinking of reading her book first.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-01
A really well executed text art piece I always loved is RickRoll in Type by ~Dencii. Rick Astley is easily recognizable and the way the deviant managed to shade using this technique is simply brilliant and admirable. From distance is almost looks like a photograph! And besides that, what would be better on April Fool's than Rick Rolling your friends? All together now:
Never gonna give you up,
Never gonna let you down,
Never gonna run around and desert you.
Never gonna make you cry,
Never gonna say goodbye,
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you...

Lol that song used to drive my brother nuts. So we used to tease him that it was his favorite song because he also smiled and hid that smile when the song was on

OH YOU SON OF A….
The DeviantArt "Did you Know" journal was about permalinks today….
They discussed the advantages of Permalinks, like them being shorter and you could hide the artists name and deviation title.


And so they gave a permalink of this, hiding the title and RICK ROLLING ME :nuu: But very clever XD

From the thumbnail my thought was "now why would a Rick Astley portrait get a DD?"...

Congratulations on the well-deserved DD and the amazing likeness.

I'm almost trying to get Rickrolled today because I'm trying to figure out what the name of that song is. I think it's also Robo's theme in Chrono Trigger.

I've listened to them both, and the similarity is too strong to be passed off as a coincidence.
