Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

This weeks featured artists is a talented concept artist and illustrator from Poland - maykrender. You should checkout his gallery or website!

Featured Journals and literature

(And you love me anyway)I trap secrets
behind onyx teeth,
creasing my wrists
with your melody.
You spill truths
from incandescent fingers,
rejoicing (lamenting) companionship
through chrome power lines.
We swap batteries and candles,
hoping we light each others' ways
while still stumbling along our own.
I get too trapped
by my life's natural disasters
to remember to celebrate
the close-earned commodities
that spill into yours.
(I want to take this moment
for the thoughts that rot to frustration
on my tongue, but this should be
about both you and me.)
I want to cradle your dreams
in my palms, the way you steady
my fears in yours. But I bleed your heart
with my (self) hate, and a deeper connection
drowns in the eddies.
Will we get there? Time
is unmoldable, and it marches on
whether we (I) prepare or not.
But you make me forget it,
if only for a Skype 3 a.m. hour.
Of Irrevocable SoulsMother, I have learned
of all the places in the universe
mementos from the underworld
break through
within an owl graveyard,
death beading
maps not meant for following--
a fleeting touch of the galaxy.
The moon is on fire,
a dreaming globe;
in the silence,
a strong and broken man
plagued by phantasms
the tails of falling stars--
"The bone yard glows, but you are still here;
friends shouldn't say goodbye like this."
From Out of the Clear Blue Sky Comes a FeatureGreetings, all. I felt a sudden urge to create a Feature. I have more in early development, so if you aren't featured in this one, watch for upcoming Features from me. :love:
Please take the time to get to know any new-to-you names from this eclectic mix of fine deviants. I hope some new dA friendships start here! :nod:
Bridgitte is recognizable as a busy promoter and supporter, particularly within dA's literature community! :heart: In her own gallery you'll find apocalyptic literature and more. She can also be found hard at work supporting the group Apocalypse-writing
Don't let the fact that he's " antisocial dark wizard" stop you from visiting his gallery. ;) He's also a "Philosopher, Literary Artist and Entertainer." You'll find him

Udara Jay.

In this tutorial, i will explain how i created some of my recent "isometric" works. For example:

Staircase to Heaven by tatasz Surface by tatasz

Softwares needed: Apophysis and Chaotica.
Prerequisites: you will need some previous knowledge on how to use Apo and Chaotica. If you have any doubts, please check those out:

Plugins used: square.

TIP 8 - lazy skewing

Sometimes, you can first tile and then skew, since unskewed squares are easier to tile. Can be handy when you need to tile a reasonably huge surface with skewed squares.

For example, lets make a pattern like one below. You can tile directly the skewed squares, but you can also tile "default" squares, add a common linked transform (as described in Part 2) and skew the whole block at once.

Unskewed block                                                    Skewed block
Sk1 by tatasz Sk2 by tatasz

In the parameters below, check transform 2: it is the block`s container, and it is the only skewed one.

<flame name="sq" version="Apophysis 7x Version 15C.9" size="777 510" center="0.978061373034762 0.826019851119642" scale="98.690655" oversample="1" filter="0.2" quality="1" background="0 0 0" brightness="4" gamma="4" gamma_threshold="0.01" estimator_radius="9" estimator_minimum="0" estimator_curve="0.4" enable_de="0" plugins="" new_linear="1" curves="0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1" >
   <xform weight="1" color="0.52" symmetry="-1" square="1" coefs="1 0 0 1 0 0" chaos="0 1 0 0 0 0 " opacity="0" />
   <xform weight="0.5" color="0" symmetry="1" linear="1" coefs="1 0 0 1 0 0" post="0.866025403784439 -0.5 -6.12303176911189E-017 1 0 0" chaos="1 0 " opacity="1" name="container"/>
   <xform weight="1" color="0.52" symmetry="-1" square="1" coefs="1 0 0 1 0 0" post="1 0 0 1 1 0" chaos="0 1 0 0 0 0 " opacity="0" />
   <xform weight="1" color="0.52" symmetry="-1" square="1" coefs="1 0 0 1 0 0" post="1 0 0 1 2 1" chaos="0 1 0 0 0 0 " opacity="0" />

   <palette count="256" format="RGB">

TIP 9 - Triangles

In some situations, using just squares could lead to overlaps. When this happens and you need some triangles to complete the pattern, you can use, for example, starblur by zy0rg.

Some Usage ideas

You can use your isometric tile as a standalone piece:

Mv25n by tatasz

Or tile it using linears:

Surface by tatasz

Or use a foci final transform:

Builder by tatasz

Those are not the only options: you may try putting your isometric patterns into hypertile, grand julian, splits elliptic, spherical... The possibilities are endless.

Hello, and welcome to another edition of Digitalists new interview series:

Behind the Screens: Digital Art Masters

Through these interviews, we will get an in-depth look into the minds
and careers of DeviantART's most influential digital artists.

Today's featured artist is neverdying


Daniel Berard is a graphic designer from Quebec, Canada. He has been doing graphic design professionally for the last twelve years. He is specialized in corporate identity design (logo, brochure, web) and photo manipulation.

When did you first discover your passion for art? 

It goes back to high school. I had to create this fake magazine for a class and this is pretty much where it all started. I loved the experience and decided to take a graphic design course the next year.

The Stand by neverdying

Where do you find your inspiration?

Mostly movies. I watch a lot of movies every week and different genres too...this is why you see me jumping from one genre to another. Games and music are other inspirations.

Zero Gravity by neverdying

What is your favorite piece from your gallery and why?

My favorite piece is Worlds Factory because it's a simple idea that I think I've successfully illustrated in a clear and clean manner. Anyone can easily understand the concept and fill the gap with their imagination. That's what I like about art, don't tell a complete story, let the people see what they want.

Worlds Factory by neverdying

As a professional digital artist, what advice can you give to those who are trying to become successful in the business?

For a start, don't show everything you do. Think of deviantART and similar sites as portfolios. Only show your best work. Another thing is to use social media platforms as much as you can do. This is where business is at nowadays.

Payback by neverdying

There are a lot of people in the community who think receiving a Daily Deviation 
is essential for achieving popularity on DeviantART. From experience, 
how much would you say getting awarded Daily Deviations has 
impacted your success on this site? 

Essential? No, I don't think so. But yes they help to a certain extent to gain views and watchers. Just remember that they are not an achievement, but a one-day feature.

Leap of Faith by neverdying

Name three influential artists on DeviantART whose works 
inspire you and tell us why you look up to them.
All of his works scream genius. The guy sure knows his softwares and he
is incredibly creative and talented.

Next stop: Earth by ErikShoemaker  Winter is Coming by ErikShoemaker   Ariel by ErikShoemaker

His sci-fi pieces are really stunning and imaginative. I can look at them for hours and I
always find something I didn't see before.

Inside The killzone by Shue13  Rubynia by Shue13  The Sign by Shue13

 Another talented artist. His works are very detailed, especially his last few pieces.
Not that the work he did before wasn't good, but I think that he recently reached a whole
new level in photomanip.

Mother Of Dragons by Whendell  Fairy of the Lake by Whendell  Witch by Whendell

Till the End by neverdying

Thank you neverdying for sharing your wisdom and experience with the community! 
Join us next week for another installment where we will be interviewing


We are feelings..

Hello to all of you lovelies! :la:

Love Heart by LOVEMAYUlollollol by LOVEMAYULove Heart by LOVEMAYU

I have a few announcements!

1.} My "Journey Through the Underworld" contest will come to an end tomorrow! You still have all of today, and a good majority of tomorrow to get an entry in! Please have a look at the rules here:

Judging will begin on the 2nd of October and winners will be announced
no later than October 7th.

A Journey Through The Underworld Contestants
1.] Create a digital, photo manipulation, or traditional artwork depicting what you feel
a journey through the underworld would look like. Please feel free to do your research.
Many cultures believe in "The Underworld" but have different views and portray them
as they view them. I would like to know your view.
2.] All images will be judged equally on creativity, and technique.
3.] Your image DOES NOT have to be dark, horror, or macabre related. Remember, this
image should be created

You can have a look at the other entries here:

Journey Through the Underworld Contestants

There are only 9 entries so far, and I had hoped for more. I hope you will have a look, it may be worth it to enter! :happybounce:

2.} I have opened a new Photo Manipulation group:  Manipulating-Legends This group is strictly for manipulations based on legends, folklore, and myths. Please do not submit regular manipulations, they will be declined.

3.} I am weary about my next contest: "Lago Delgi Idoli". If there are not enough entrants to unlock all of the prizes, that contest will cancel. All of the points up for grabs through Manipulating-Legends have come out of my own pocket. I would like to see that contest be successful. You can find the rules and theme here:

Behold: The Ultimate ContestI will be offline for all of September, and possibly a good portion of October. I am scheduled to have surgery on September 2, and will need 
recovery time. So I am going to post this now, in hopes that I will come back to some extremely amazing works of art! :la:

If there are not at least 18 entries per level at the close of the contest, it will cancel out and the contest will end with no winners. If you would like to help with donations please note me. All entrants must link to the contest journal in the description of their entry. Please help spread the word! :la:

4.} I have started three new boxes on my profile. They are: Daily Favorite, Weekly Favorite, and Monthly Favorite. Keep an eye on my page, you may find your work in one of them! :happybounce: I have decided to begin trying to suggest DD's again. Those works that find their way into the "Monthly Favorites" box beginning in October, will be my one and only suggestion for the month. I have been here over a year and have not received one, and have only had one of my suggestions make the mark, so LOT'S OF LUCK TO YOU! I will wish for the best :la: :excited:

Haunted Dolls and Creepy Clowns are Here!
Found a great contest at :iconcastle-of-cards:
You should join in on this one.....
This is what the blog had to say:
In light of the upcoming Halloween holiday, I'm calling for artwork depicting either haunted dolls, creepy clowns (or both!) After watching "The Conjuring" and the most recent episode of "Face Off" wherein scary clowns were the challenge-I got inspired. Below are the specs:
Bullet; Blue Size- This is one of the few times in the year that I am not requiring a "card" shaped size. I hope that allows for more freedom in your creations.
Bullet; Blue There MUST BE either a haunted doll or creepy clown in your image. You also may have both in your work. In fact, I encourage that idea. :) (Smile)

  #our generation contestThe 70s were a wild, hippie-filled time, Michael Jackson and Madonna set the tone in the 80s while wonderfull movies like Forrest Gump, The Sixth Sense, Mrs Doubtfire (bless you, my captian), Tatanic and many more dominated the 90s followed by great polical change (the first black president of the US, the first woman as Germanys Federal Chancellor, e.g.) in the 2000s.
So many things are happening in the world. So many things to leave a mark (good, bad or neutral) on you as time passes.

  The Illuminated World ContestStock & Resources
The Challenge
Imagine a world where the soft glow of the magnolia blossoms illuminates the sidewalk. The reaching branches of the tree cast their light over the street, reflected in the gathering puddles of a spring rain. A garden nearby is a riot of colors against the deep shadows of the night. The harsh artificial street lights that we know today are gone. What would your world look like? Is it a world where the need for fossil fuel has been eliminated, or have the scientists bio-engineered the earth into a beautiful apocalypse?
The idea of bio-luminescent plant illumination is a real project in progress by three scientists in San Francisco, California. These scientists are engineering marine bio-luminous bacterial DNA into plants to make them glow. You can read more about their project here: Glowing Plants: Street Lig

Hello Friends, Watchers and Visitors,
I have started a new Contest, called "Twisted Tales" 
* To be clear from the start, this is a PHOTOMANIPULATION-Contest!!!
* This contest is not for professionals, but for beginners and intermediate users of photoshop!!
There are a lot of fairytales, urban legends you can choose as inspiration or maybe something from your favourite movie/tv-series, but
your work has to have a twist in it or maybe a refference to a horrormovie. You are free to choose the stocks you like, but they have to be legal!!
I support stocks from other websites like pixabay etc., but no google, imgur, lenagold etc.. 
Give credit to the stockproviders and i like direct-links to the stocks used in your work.
You may enhance your work with some digital painting, but not from scratch!!
I won't except explicit sex or horror, the twist should be subtle and not to disturbi

Welcome! Please read before joining
:police: Here are the rules to keep up..please feel free to send a note if you have any question! We don't decline fantasy and sweet things as long as it follows the rules so don't be fooled by the name of our group
:skullbones: First of all WE ARE NOT A GROUP ABOUT THE TV SERIES, we get a lot of submission about this, we accept them if they show visible fantasy/darkness/scifi, but not plain characters.
