Steve Jobs - Community Contest & Tribute:icontechgnotic:Steve Jobs - Community Contest & Tribute4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A number of media outlets are closely monitoring the artistic response by our community to the death of Steve Jobs.
For me, Steve Jobs is an icon. The John Lennon of our time. And while his wife and children, as well as Apple and Pixar, are the landmarks of his life, Steve Jobs encapsulates the core values that have inspired a generation, separate from the images put forth by his companies.
It is his iconography that we as a community should come together and try our hands at capturing. No small feat, but it is precisely what I'd like to see us do. The iconography of Steve Jobs himself. Apple and Pixar and those types of images aside, Steve Jobs transcends these accomplishments through the meaning of his life's work, his vision, and the inspiration that he will continue to be to us all.
Iconography is the branch of art history which studies the identification, description, and the int
Why Rock, Paper, Scissors? D:I understand that scissors can beat paper, and I get how rock can beat scissors, but there's no way paper can beat rock. Paper is supposed to magically wrap around rock leaving it immobile? Why can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors. Why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of collage ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they attempt to take notes in class? I'll tell you why. Because paper can't beat anybody. A rock would tear it up in two seconds. When I play rock paper scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, oh sorry, I thought paper would protect you!Why Rock, Paper, Scissors?

Sucker PunchedThis is a LONG one so settle in!Sucker Punched1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve been re-watching Sucker Punch a lot lately and have been humorously admiring how misunderstood it is. It’s almost comical how a movie that comes right out and says “I am about the negative connotations surrounding the constant sexual abuse and objectification that women endure,” gets reviewed and dismissed as “just another pandering male geek fantasy of objectified sexualized women.”
I could write a book on the various subtle metaphors and messages Sucker Punch visualizes, but I don’t wanna bore you all. But to demonstrate what I mean let’s just dissect a small piece of it.
Before we begin we need to understand two things. First, Director Zach Snyder made the film with the express intent of it being a feminist critique on geek culture. If you don’t believe me, hear it from his own words: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/features/interview-zack-snyder-on-the-sexuality-and-world

As we traverse the final phases of maximum raw information accumulation, potentially equipping us for jacking in to the promise of the Singularity, the contents of many lifetimes’ worth of knowledge, art, education, and history are now at our fingertips. More and more Universities, libraries and arts institutions have swung open their digital doors and granted access to their lectures, courses and curricula free of charge to anyone in the world with a connection to the web. Access to education is fundamentally shifting our society towards an unmappable

The Street Photography of Chris Weeks
It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

Pardon my language but -- what the Hell is wrong with the dA admins?
I mean really?
I get it, I really do. You're busy, you don't really want to do your job, and you've been taught to have the least possible concern for other people as you can as to avoid branding this website with a 'bad reputation'.
This place is supposedly all flowers, rainbows, and happy people frolicking away in eternal bliss sharing art, and being merry.
Meanwhile the truth is this place is the biggest joke on the internet. It's filled and continually filling up with so many sockpuppet troll accounts, cyber bullies, and spammers with such rapidity it puts Myspace or any other social media site to shame.

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

Welcome back, me!Hello my dear DA friends,Welcome back, me!6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've been gone for quite some time. Don't even know if anyone's still watching me or if I'm writing to myself right now but I made it, I am back on DA. And this time, I'll try to submit art more frequently again. Here's what I have to say first: Good job on developing this platform, deviantART I haven't submitted a drawing for a long time and it is now way easier, more comfortable and more fun than I remembered doing it a few years back. Wow! Can't wait to discover all the new features and gimmicks here. It definitely helps motiviating me to keep submitting things.
So a lot happened since I was really active on DA. For anyone who's interested, here's a short summary of my past 4-6 years. I gratuated from high school, been to university, got my bachelor's degree in information technology and economics, been drawing for friends and family mostly, still stalked my favorite artists on DA regularly , found a new pa
Gothic PeopleGoths are usually pictured as evil Satan's worshippers, who work at graveyards and are just rude and mean and all... b*tches. ... Right... Actually, the people who have been mean to me have been usually normal people... or more like "normal" people. The goths I've talked to have always been nice. Well... maybe one "goth" was kind of dumb towards me once... but you know how you can trust these people on the net... could have been a poser... or just a wannabe... or a goth. There are different kinds of Goths. It doesn't mean they can't be mean. Anyone is mean when they feel threatened/gets pissed off and so on.Gothic People3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't really know am I goth or not... sometimes I'm pretty sure of that, and most of the time... I don't really care. I know what I like. If people have a name for it, so be it. I'm just tired of the typicalness. I like change. Break habits and rules. Try different things. ... not in bad way, though. And then... I dress all black. I like black. It's a pretty eh... "color".
