Overthought, Underbaked: The Controversial New DA Logo
So, in response to requests for my thoughts on the new DA logo — and being disinclined to type the same response repeatedly — I will lay out my impressions here.
To paraphrase a certain swordsman: "You keep using that logo, but I do not think it conveys what you think it does."
The new logo is certainly clever, and as a designer — setting aside any resemblance to the platzkart.ru logo, accidental or otherwise — one can easily imagine the careful thought that went into its concept and execution, but...
If there is one thing that I took from my schooling in graphic design, it was the importance of clarity: of meaning, of import, of impression. This was true for any work, its composition, it layout, its style — its effective visceral message. Logo design, above all, is go

This isn't a short journal, however, it may be of use to you. So brace yourself, perhaps you are about to level up!
As per request of :icondamaimikaz: to explain my process with environments and how I design and paint them, I decided that I'll make a journal out of her request for all my readers to benefit from instead of just sending her a private reply.
If does thou gets even the slightest beneficial knowledge or the briefest moment of clarification from this journal, thine success will make me happy. It's a win win. Pardon for the sort of archaic language!
All right, so first of all - Why is it called Landscape Painting 1? Well, I might update with a follow up. That's why.
Second of all, almost all that I write here exists as knowledge readily available at your disposal somewhere on the internet, presented by people who are much better at this than myself. I doubt that I'll bring new ideas, but I'm willing to answer your questions and perhaps writ

We’re scarily already halfway through the year! Next month sees another round of camp NaNoWrimo as well as the glorious Flash Fiction Month. We hope to see lots of involvement and good writing come out of those!
Us CVs are really keen to see some diversity in our DD choices each month. We’re keen to see pieces that are a little different, or broach genres/themes that perhaps are not as common as others. If you do see anything out there which meets those and are fabulously written, please do send in your DD suggestions to any of us!

Our Anniversary Gift, To You
Today marks theWrittenRevolution's fifth anniversary, and we can finally re-start a project we were very fond of: and in the best tWR fashion, we bring it back to you packed with innovation!
What is the Mentorship Project?
It's a learning system for our members, that works through a series of mentees (aka the deviants who want to learn, or rather, "be taught" new things) and mentors (the more experienced deviants who feel confident enough to teach - and maybe learn something new also ), that we help form pairs to follow the Project.
What does the project consist of?

If you don't know these people, they are intelligent, kind hearted, and entirely too good to be associating with layabouts like me.

My Landscape PhotographyHi! my name is Ferdinand I'm a digital artist working as an Art Director in game and outsourcing company. Beside doing paintings i also love photography most of my images are landscapes. I really like shooting landscapes because it's gives you the freedom and have the chance to explore your world around you and there's no limits on how you visualize your creativity. And it's a great source of inspiration and reference that i applied on my paintings. I traveled occasionally just to enjoy the pleasure and to embrace the awesomeness of our mother nature.My Landscape Photography8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Do You Want to Host a Workshop?Hello allDo You Want to Host a Workshop?1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
As you may be aware, I recently revived Writers-Workshop and now into the fourth workshop since starting again. Three of these workshops have been run by myself, but what made the group so awesome in the past was having different hosts each month. This also meant drawing in from different experiences, skills and cultures from all over deviantART, giving a wide variety of workshop choices. We are now looking for future workshop hosts, trying to book up to the end of this year, with a different workshop each month.
You can run it by yourself, or with a friend or on behalf of another group, we are all for that. Your workshop can also be whatever you like as long as it fits the month period. If you are unfamiliar with our group format, it might be worth keeping an eye on the current workshops to see how it all works. There is a dedicated backroom team to support you also, so you're not

I know this has nothing to do with my drawings but since I know that a lot of you like the Assassin's Creed franchise I decided to post this on here.
This video is my first attempt of creating a fanmade trailer. It took some hours but I am pretty happy with the outcome.
I always thought the song was really fitting for the story of Rogue.
So I would be really happy if you could give me some feedback and tell me what to do better next time.
Hope you like it!

I Was Not Ready For This
What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those
