LONDON 2012 + FINE ART FEATURESHello everyone!!LONDON 2012 + FINE ART FEATURES2 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

Mermaids- the New Wave In Pop Culture?
Over the past few years mermaids have been swimming there way into pop culture leaving their mark in the art world, the literature world, and the movie world. Women are taking up jobs educating and performing as mermaids while costume designers and cosplay artists are enjoying the challenge of creating realistic looking tails. This journal feature is going to share with you a little bit of the "mermaiding" world while drawing reference to the many ways in which mermaids are popping up on deviantART!

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 PAINT1 year 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: The Impact of Color1. - WHAT IS COLOR?PE: The Impact of Color1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Color is the aspect of things that is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by them, as received by the human eye and processed by the human brain. It is a function of light and biology, not an exact science, no two people can see it exactly the same.
The human eye and brain together translate light into color. Light receptors within the eye transmit messages to the brain, which produces the familiar sensations of color. Newton observed that color is not inherent in objects. Rather, the surface of an object reflects some colors and absorbs all the others. We perceive only the reflected colors. Thus, red is not "in" an apple. The surface of the apple is reflecting the wavelengths we see as red and absorbing all the rest. An object appears white when it reflects all wavelengths and black when it absorbs them all.
"Colors are the deeds of light, its deeds and sufferings."
(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

Also another important thing is that please read the rules carefully and do as instructed if not your submission will not be accepted as we will check that you have followed the rules correctly before we accept your submission.

9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!1. - Ink can be used for drawing, writing or painting, anything you chose! You can use it with a brush, cartridge pens or drawing nibs, even a goose-quill will do!9 Reasons to LOVE YOUR INK!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
2. - Ink can be water-soluble or, unlike watercolor, waterproof. Once dried out, it stays where you left it, it doesn't run away from you!
3. - Ink can be watered down and used as washes, just like watercolor, but it can be used at full strength, achieving more consistent results!
4. - Ink, when dried on paper, results in a very appealing velvety surface.
5. - Ink is in many cases a lot cheaper than watercolor, even school quality (very cheap) inks bring lovely and very satisfactory results.
6. - Inks are colorful! Forget the black ink, you will be able to buy whole variety of colored inks. Also, you can mix them together to create many more colors & hues!
7. - White ink is a perfect assistant in many other techniques, use it to create highlights and special effects!
8. - Ink

Getting the Most out of dA: CommentingUsually, when you read something involving 'Commenting', you think of deviations and the commenting platform that allows other members of the community to voice their thoughts and opinions on the art shown. However, what is pretty evident, and something that most of us may forget, is that deviantART runs on the ability to give and get comments, be it on pieces of artwork, our profile pages, forums, and everywhere else in between.Getting the Most out of dA: Commenting1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
In a sense, without the ability to give and get comments, deviantART wouldn't be much of a website, much less #1 of online art communities around. Comments are not solely the cause of what makes deviantART what it is, but it has a huge impact on a lot of things. By giving and getting comments, not only do we interact with other members to really make this a community, we also have the ability to get our voices heard.
It's quite an odd concept with us all facing screens, typing out our thoughts and opinions, but one thing we shouldn't forget is that commen
