ProjectPorkchop is all about bringing more exposure to the many talented yet under appreciated artists going unseen on deviantART daily. The artists chosen truly deserve more attention based on low counts of favorites, comments, and watchers, added to their incredible artistic talent.
Krzysztof is a professional traditional artist from Poland. His technique is heavily influenced by the polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński, who is his inspiration. He classifies his works as surrealism or "magic realism" and his works are simply awe-inspiring! He uses a glaze technique which is very difficult but the color and depth he achieves is well worth the effort! This artist is a must add to your watchlist!
Camille is a varied hobbyist from the United States. She is passionate about fantasy art and gaming and creates beautiful desktop wallpapers. If you are a fan of Skyrim, you will definitely want to pay her gallery a visit! Her digital paintings are nicely rendered with great intensity and lots of action! Camille is brand new to DeviantART, so lets make her feel welcome!
Carol is a traditional artist from the United States. She enjoys painting in the style of surrealism while incorporating some influence of horror and the macabre. Her color palette is very soft and not overpowering and her brush strokes add wonderful texture to her paintings. She also has a small collection of very humorous ink drawings which are sure to put a smile on your face! Carol is a real sweetheart too, so make sure you stop by and say hello...you will be glad you did!
Mikko is a hobbyist artist from Finland who works in the film and animation industry. He is also a very talented photographer and captures some wonderful natural landscapes as well as street images. His emotive portraits are very nicely staged and he chooses his models and wardrobe very well. The high contrast adds great dramatic effect as well! Be sure to visit his gallery today and leave some feedback!
VB is a varied professional artist from the Netherlands with a very unique hobby! He restores pieces of old furniture and turns them into beautiful and fully functional artwork! He predominantly works in the styles of Brocante, Decoupage, Shabby Chic and Vintage, among others. He believes in making furniture unique and says "Old furniture tells a story, with a future that is yours to be part of...Forget modern mass produced furniture, believe in the possibilities of owning something as individual as you are!"
1 Which type of art are You creating ? RiccardoClerici - Actually I am most active as photographer. But I’ve been a musician for over 20 years. When I was 30, I decided to go to a school of arts because I wanted to learn how to draw. And I also wrote poems sometimes.
2 Why this kind of art ? RiccardoClerici - To be honest, I do not know…I just leave things flow out of me. I’m a sorta of vehicle. And every single thing I do: poetry, music, drawing, photography, reflect a state of mind. As I told, I’ve been a punk rocker for a long time. Since my last band’s split in 2010. Then a friend of mine who, at that time, used to study at the art academy in Milan saw my pictures and she told me that I have a good eye…That day a new chapter of my life begun.
3 When did You started create Your art? RiccardoClerici - Quite young…at 14-15 I wrote my first songs and poems. But the first music lessons I took, I was a kid: 5-6 YO. But I didn’t really like the way the classical music teacher use to teach…too much discipline and no space for fantasy and creativity. I was, already at that age, a volcano of ideas ready to explode and used to feel a burning desire to do something mine…I didn’t want to be a copy of someone. I used to say…”Ok, I may play Per Elisa on the piano but…why? This does not reflect anything of me…where is art here? Beethoven wrote this beautiful piece of music, not me...” My Grandfather and my mother were musical teachers and probably used to see in me an half failure. At least, until I began to realize my stuff by myself. It’s only a pity that I couldn’t had the opportunity to show something to my grandpa, as he died long time ago, when I was 12.
4 What kind of art do You like to watch the most? RiccardoClerici - I mostly like pictures took around, with people who do not know to be in a picture. I like to see lives caged into frames. And also erotic arts and some nudes are not bad at all. Sometimes depends from the photographers…to be more or less explicit…I like shadows on female bodies. Not gynecological close ups.
5 What is Your inspiration? RiccardoClerici - It may come from everywhere and from everyone. Sometimes I just have an idea…and it bugs me until I realize it. Or I see a girl that I didn’t neither know and she capture my fantasy. Classic dancers, you can’t imagine how is hard to look natural. Try to smile standing on one leg keeping the other next by your face. I have a lot of respect for what these girls do. They do it for passion…and you can feel it strong.

PLEASE SEND DD SUGGESTIONS TO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING
Cartoons refers to art styles suited to representing abstractions of reality; that is, exaggerated or otherwise non-realistic visual aesthetic. This idea is most prominent as it's easily understood, but to exact "cartoons" further is to probe some more - especially in the context of comics. Cartoons and comics share a close and complimentary relationship in visual communication, being especially true to sequential art among other forms of narrative in illustration. This understanding is an area of scholary interest due to the increasing acceptance of analogies being established between written & visual communication - highlighting the way in which sequential images actually constitute a visual language.
Commentary in abundance about comics and cartoons individually is justly avoidable in the context deviantART categories; the explanation is better defined by a more concise descriptor to be explained without embellishment and in plain terms. Although the category "Cartoons & Comics" appears to distinguish the two at first glance, this isn't the case to the extent that you might expect. There are subtle differentiations between sequential and illustrative types of artwork but they're unified under the same heading which aims to marry them rather than the contrary.
There are many interlacing traits of comics and cartoons such as with the dynamic styles of cartooning lending effectively towards pictorial depictions in storytelling. In turn, corresponding art styles are used to accentuate the storytelling within a myriad of genres in comic books. Hence, cartooning as a form of illustration in comic books is of huge prevalence.
Below are examples from the Comics & Cartoons category; using the differentiation of pages/strips next to drawings/paintings - the main contextual differences from the submissions menu process:
As you see, some deviations could fit comfortably in both "comics" and "cartoons" within the category; this highlights the relationship between them which creates a grey area between the most pronounced ends of the small spectrum. Just like art exists in a wider sense, our category for Cartoons & Comics is one that is actively evolving as a particularly fast-paced industry and overall movement. As your CV for this gallery, I hope to sustain your trust during my term - so that should you find yourself to query something - anything - then you can be encouraged to seek my help. Keep rockin', gang.
Hello,my darlings I've been so busy lately,hardly any time to just sit around, saw about 50 bands this summer,maybe more,some concerts and festivals,inside Romania but mostly abroad , Metal of course and some operas in Bucharest with my brother,we're crazy about the opera but also I made him come to Amon Amarth and Arch Enemy and he's mad about them now.. he was always into grunge and alternative stuff and always teased me about being a metalhead
Had no time for digital art.. painted some things and gave them as presents,sew some Romanian traditional blouses and gave them as presents as well to my dearest two girls in the world, my best friends
aaand another thing.. I`m mad about Bruno Pelletier , a Canadian singer, since I saw him in April in Paris ... such a warm and amazing voice , he shares his birthday with Bruce Dickinson, 7th August and my zodiacal sign, maybe that`s a reason for such an attraction and French, omg I love French, I`m currently re-learning it
I recently changed my status from a miss to a mrs , if you know what I mean
I'm very healthy and having a great time all the time, such a wonderful life, it may be getting harder, but I will always have this
Take care,my dear friends
