SECRET BOOK PROJECT AND NEW PAINTINGS REVEALED!SECRET BOOK PROJECT AND NEW PAINTINGS REVEALED!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I would like to apologize for not responding to comments, and being slow on notes! I have been very busy with a project over the past year that I am excited to announce now. Later this month I will be releasing a collection of preliminary work from my Thumbelina series, inspired by the writings of Hans Christian Andersen.
The images will include sketches and underpaintings from the first part of the series, and will be bound into a softcover book. The book will be 38 pages, and include over 50 working images that have been my initial steps in creating the collection of existing paintings, as well as future images. Visit my blog for more images and info! https://annie-stegg-tlyt.squarespace.com/new-blog/2013/8/4/a-sketchbook-and-new-paintings

Huge Feature and new Feature folder!Huge Feature and new Feature folder!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hi everyone! As one of the new projects in honor of our group's 2nd birthday, this week we have decided to celebrate it with a series of activities and new features to our group.
And we decided to kick it off with the new Feature Folder. To say thanks to our participating deviants who have been kind enough to help this group get to where it is now.
With the help of :iconflaminandfamous789: , :iconKeytarist:, :iconMcMaggot: , and I :icon619warrior281: we have chosen deviations from each of the folders whom we feel need to be show cased for their great talents.
Have you been chosen? Or have you YET to be chosen?
Our picks for Colorful Fractals:
The deviant :iconlucid-light: chose to say " My artwork "In Love" is an expression of feelings that I have for my soulmate. The pattern is intricate, fiery red with green blooms... showing the complexity of my feelings, the fiery passion. The green blooming flowers repre

The Village Bicycle Project
Pet projects. Groups, prompts, contests, news serials. We all have them, whether it be one, or two, or ten if we've got a premium membership and a largesse of time. We start them for various reasons: to make a change for the better, to provide an opportunity that wasn't there before, or simply to make our mark on this wide and diverse community. Of course, it wasn't always like this. When I was first kicking around deviantART, News was still in beta (heck, beta-testing was still in beta) and Groups were nothing more than a glint in the ninja milkman's eye. What few projects there were were run out of the forums, individual journals or dedicated accounts, while the vast majority of contests came directly from the Gallery Directors. But now, thanks to these new features, anyone can be a community volunteer. You might not get the hat or the tacit permission to fling poop or rend innocents with your dinosaur teeth, but you are a community volu

The Evolution of CultureCulture EvolutionThe Evolution of Culture3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The evolution of culture flows through a number of different dynamics. I want to look into each one of these dynamics as they behave individually and interact with each other to generate large-scale cultural evolution. The primary activity of every human being is the formation of "meaning architectures". A meaning architecture is a system for predicting and controlling ones circumstance to achieve a satisfactory condition. The content of "satisfactory condition" and the strategies for prediction and control are highly variable and their movement is both one of the primary consequences of and drivers of cultural evolution. This is because our actions are all always determined by our "meaning architectures" (in combination with our capabilities and actual circumstances).
I. The bio/developmental individual
Every meaning architecture starts on our specific and general biological inheritance.
What is Spec work?Lately its like a new virus, spreading, this so called contest, were people pick the winning one but they dont give you nothing in return, but they make money. Correct me if im wrong, because probably i miss it but whats the prize in last deviant art event.What is Spec work?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Correcty me if im wrong, people are going to send designs and designs that took months or years in preparations from schools, wasting money in materials, electricity, tablets, tears and blood, and in the end they wont receive anything just a palm in your shoulder saying good job.
Can you pay your bills with your tiny name at the end on credits? Forget about the publicity crappy excuse. People will get paid for this but the winner and contestants they wont.
Its a shame that deviant
Fantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 22I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock and Where to Find It - Feature 223 years ago in Art Features More Like This
works that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't provide
myself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way I
choose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image in
my head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. The
image also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.
Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

ATB - An alternative to watermarks: MetadataWe have all seen watermarks on images, here on dA and around the internet. And even though they have become a necessary step in the aid of preventing art theft/misuse of art, they are not always ideal. It's really hard to signature or watermark an icon that is 50x50 pixels and still show it off, for example. And even in larger pieces of art, sometimes they just look ugly or, like the watermark option offered by dA, take up too much of the image.ATB - An alternative to watermarks: Metadata2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

Make a Difference #162Artists join deviantART to share their art and appreciate others. Due to the many artists out there, it's easy to get towed under and generally obscured from the public.Make a Difference #1623 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Make a Difference aims to do exactly that. This series of articles will hopefully make a difference to you as well as the artists featured weekly. Just by giving one minute of your time to write constructive comments, favourites and even watches will make a difference to these artists.
:iconKarianneeKaas:'s photography is well executed, shown in how the photos are increased in impact and effect through the various poses of the models, the composition and colours (or lack of). Many of her pieces have no comments at all, so don't hesitate to go and give her some feedback if you have time!
