LONDON 2012 + FINE ART FEATURESHello everyone!!LONDON 2012 + FINE ART FEATURES3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How are you doing there?? I am so excited!! On Saturday the 30th I am going to fly to LONDON!!! Oh yeah, I am already looking forward to it. I think I am going to be there for a month or two, I've always dreamt to do this experience and I am totally eager to get there. As on Saturday the 30th there will be also the amazing DeviantMeet in London I do really hope I will be able to join all those who are going to take part to the event, if so I am double excited and I can't wait to get to know all of you guys ^^
They say people have not much time to read, therefore I quit with the boring part (lool) and let's do some features though!! I've always done (mostly) photography features, but recently I started to appreciate also the incredible amount of fine art pieces that some world-beating artists shared on this wonderful platform. I think it's the same for a musician, don't you think? If you like to play Chopin you simply CAN'T play his music all life l

Oh, guys. Do you remember those little contests I used to host back when I had money for prizes? Me too. And I miss them. So I've decided to ignore my oft-dire financial situation and bring them back.
The primary purpose of these contests is to have art-based fun. While there is obviously that element of competition there, the idea is to enjoy the process of creating your art rather than worrying about winning. It's not about perfection, it's not about skill, it's about doing. You have an
9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT1. FORGIVING - Oil is, even today, still one of the easiest and most forgiving mediums you can work in. Creating an oil painting is in fact relatively easy compared to other mediums such as watercolor or pastels.9 reasons to adore OIL PAINT2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
2. EASY TO CONTROL - Oil paints are easy to put onto a canvas or panel. You just put some paint on your brush and rub it on the canvas or panel. The paint will generally not run or move.
3. SMOOTH BLENDING - Oil paints are king of the ring when blending colors together and creating subtle blends. Wet-on-wet is the sure fire way to get a smooth transition in your painting.
4. COLOR STABILITY - One great property of oil paints is that they don't change color when they dry as opposed, for example, to acrylics or watercolor. Oils stay pretty-much the same for a long period of time (however, in a very long period of time, oil paintings have tendency to yellow).
5. EASY TO REMAKE - It's simple, just scrape the paint off with a paint knife and repa

PE Abstract and Surreal: IntroductionIntroduction: Defining abstract and surrealPE Abstract and Surreal: Introduction3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The term abstract comes from the Latin word abstrahere (to draw away) and refers to the concept of abstraction. In abstract art it means that the artists uses a visual language of form, color and line to create an image which is almost free from any references in the visual world. Related terms are nonfigurative art, nonobjective art and nonrepresentational art.
In abstract photography the actual subject doesn’t matter much – it’s not important what you see but how you see and feel a picture. This is why abstract artists often refuse to reveal the subject of their photographs or even the used technique. They prefer not to distract the viewer from the deeper concept of their artwork. However, a lot of abstract photographers c

"To fall in the void as I fell: none of you knows what that means… I went down into the void, to the most absolute bottom conceivable, and once there I saw that the extreme limit must have been much, much farther below, very remote, and I went on falling, to reach it."

Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.Hi everyone! It's been awhile. This post is a little important so I have a feeling im going to be making it a little long... Also, I'm doing it from my phone. So, there may be weird typos.Why I left DA + currently hospitalized.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you don't wanna read the whole thing here's a basic summary:
I left DA because of Internet hate which brought down my confidence; I got a lot of hate the same day I found out my grandfather died which really made it worse, I planned on coming back the beginning of January but I was hospitalized because of a bowel obstruction and I am still currently in the hospital and plan to come back mid February. Also I feel like shit.
Long version: I guess I'll start... With why I left. It's a really complex reason and I really hope everyone will understand, but I think there might be some people who just won't. And by that I mean, I am aware I have a handfull of followers who might feel neutral about my art rather than full out liking it. Or maybe I'm just talking about the people who don't really like my ar
