Artists you should be watching - Volume 1Whilst browsing deviantART for underappreciated art to feature in my series of news articles, I have come across a few great artists who really do deserve far more attention than they get. I decided to feature a few of them here:Artists you should be watching - Volume 13 years ago in Art Features More Like This
robybaer has been on deviantART only a month and already has a gallery full of wonderful paintings. With great use of soft colours and attention to detail, she is definitely one to watch.

Freya7 has some lovely photography, particularly her shots of sunsets which have a crisp focus and rich colours. She deserves more attention.

Fantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 32 I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsFantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 3210 months 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.

Why is Seychelles hated so often?As a Seychelles cosplayer and role-player, I am very aware of the hate Seychelles receives. I know that there are reasons out there, but are they even reasonable? In this rant, I reveal why the common reasons of hating her barely make any sense. We are all entitled to our opinions, so she may be the most adorable thing ever, or appear to be boring and unappealing to others. Also, I'm not saying that you have to love her, or even like her! But you shouldn't really have to hate her when there are practically no reasons to do so.Why is Seychelles hated so often?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The reasons (in order) in this rant are: "She gets in the way of yaoi!", "She gets in the way of my OTP!!", "She is such a bitch!", "She is a whore!", "She gets ALL the guys in Gakuen Hetalia!", "She's a Mary-Sue!", "I don't like her because of her skin color!", "She gets paired up with EVERYONE!", "She's a FEMALE!", "She's an island!", "I don't like how people portray Seychelles in their fanfictions!", "Seychelles is totally a useless, unnecessary character!",

Defining Street Photography
by Dave Beckerman
Most types of photography can be easily defined by their subjects. A wedding photographer takes pictures of weddings. A portrait photographer poses someone and takes their picture. The nature photographer covers a wide area, but it is easy to categorize.
Street photography is difficult to define because it can encompass just about any subject.
If I were to ask you to name a few famous street photographers, you might pick, Garry Winnograd, Henri Cartier-Bresson, or maybe Robert Frank. But if I asked you to define street photography – that would be more difficult. You might say that street photography is candid pictures of strangers on the street. That might be a good start, but it doesn’t really describe street photography.
To start with, street photography doesn’t need to be done on
Street Photography for dummiesStreet Photography for dummies3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What do we need to shoot a Street picture?
1. A camera
Whatever kind of a camera is good. Either it is a ridiculously expensive rangefinder or an unbelievably cheap point and shoot compact. Either it shoots digital or it shoots film. Either it weighs a ton or it weighs few grams. ANY camera is fine as long as you have it with you.
2. A public place
This can be out in the streets or at the beach or inside a hotel's lounge or in a diner place or inside a supermarket or a mall or a school or whatever PUBLIC place. This public place must be visible in our picture. And things must be happening in this public place.
Exactly, people! We need people in candid situations. Definition of "candid" from Merriam-Webster's online dictionary: "subjects acting naturally or spontaneously without being posed" Definition of "candid" from Wikipedia: Candid photography is best described as un-
My first exhibition!Tonight I joined my first photography exhibition! It was a group exhibition organised in a public space in Alghero and gathered some local photographers, including my son, GothicNarcissus.My first exhibition!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When I received the invitation to join the exhibition, I couldn’t believe it! Each artist could only show four works and the choice felt like giving birth to triplets! I couldn’t choose because I love each of my photos like children, so I decided to tribute the local audience: I chose two photos of the place I live in, and then two I love very much and which represent my “genre” of choice.
The exhibition will stand until May 23rd.
Our photo exhibition extended for another two weeks, an unexpected success!
Street Photography - The OriginsAs we all know from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding everything was invented by the Greeks. Well, ok we left some trivial things to be invented by the Chinese as well. What you may not know is that Street photography was also invented by the Greeks before Photography itself was even invented.Street Photography - The Origins3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment or "the supreme moment". The Greeks believed the concept of Kairos is achieved when such a moment is grasped for otherwise the moment is gone and cannot be re-captured. According to ancient Greeks, Kairos was the god of the “fleeting moment.”
Interestingly the ancient Greeks had two words for time, chronos and kairos. While chronos is quantitative, kairos has a qualitative nature.
Does the above remind you of the "Decisive moment", the essence of Street Photography?

Creating the world of Nefis SeyAlright, this is a work in progress, and I'd like some input and help from those of you watching the group.Creating the world of Nefis Sey2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've decided to make the world called Nefis Sey. Which is Turkish for "Beautiful Thing" and/or "Perfect Dream"
I have some brainstorming down for the world itself, but would like suggestions of any NATURAL wonders you'd like me to take inspiration from.
I am also looking for names for the creatures, and designs for other inhabitants of this world.
This is what we have so far.
The creatures currently called Nefis Sey. They need a new name.
If there are any people in the world, they will be few and far between, nomadic, or sheltered, and devolved. There may be evidence in the form of ruins from lost civilizations.

Where to find Street in dAWell...obviously not in the site's Street Gallery unless you are willing to dig hard.Where to find Street in dA3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I've been hearing complaints and I'm complaining myself about the Street Gallery. As it seems it is impossible to open people's heads and stick the definition of Street Photography (if there is one) on their brains.
So, what can we do?
Fav the real street images that you see in the Street Gallery
This way, they'll rise above the empty streets, girlfriends, converse shoes and all the irrelevant stuff that floods the Gallery, in the Popular view of it.
Watch the Street Groups
and enjoy the street shots that come everyday in your inbox.
Once, there was only one Street club in dA. Now there are several Street groups that you can follow.
Try them, find out which ones are alive, which ones are worth watching, stick to them and support them.
In alphabetical order , I present you the Street groups of deviantArt

I'm aware that my profile says '2 years', but I've decided to measure my dA activity time starting from the day I've uploaded my first Deviation. Oh hey, there it is:
What can I say about this year... to think it was full of events would be to underestimate it, so I'm just going to go through some of the highlights that this site has introduced into my life:
- I've met a lot of wonderful people and artists, which were (and are) very polite, respectful and caring to my artworks ;
- My attitude towards Felicia from Darkstalkers has changed from 'not really caring about' to 'downright hatred' (yeah, you KNEW I'd reference her in such a post!);
- I've promoted my OCs and projects literally to the whole world and gathered an awesome international fanbase;
- My art style has become more and more sophisticated - I'd even have the balls to say it grew dramatically in its uniqueness;
