50 reasons not to date a graphic designer
by a bourbon for silvia on November 10, 2010
1. They are very weird people.
2. There are billions of them in the world, like colors on the screen of your computer.
3. They will analyse conversations in layers.
4. You will spend the day assembling furniture from IKEA.
5. They drink and eat all kinds of weird shit just because they like the packaging.
6. They hate each other.
7. You'll come out the last out of the movies because you have to see the full list of credits.
8. They cant change a light bulb or without making a sketch.
9. They fuck up all the tables with their cutters.
10. They rather study the paisley pattern on your outfit than listen to what you have to say.

Your last name stays put.
The garage is all yours.
Wedding plans take care of themselves.
Chocolate is just another snack.
You can be President.
You can never be pregnant.
You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park.
You can wear NO shirt to a water park.
Car mechanics tell you the truth.
The world is your urinal.
You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is just too icky.
You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
Same work, more pay.
Wrinkles add character.
Wedding dress $5000. Tux rental-$100.
People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them.
New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet.
One mood all the time.
Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
You know stuff about tanks.
A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
You can open all your own jars.
You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.

Photography vs. paintingThe late 18th and early 19th century was a time of rapid social change, maybe more so than ever before in a timespan of a mere hundred or so years. Coming on the heels of the First Industrial Revolution followed the Second Industrial Revolution, which gave us the assembly line, the rise and fall of many markets, high unemployment rates, and the birth of the middle class. Advances in medicine lead to a higher life expectancy and lower child mortality rates, and Sigmund Freud shone a bright spotlight on the human mind, essentially marking the beginning of psychology as a serious science. Technology was rapidly changing and evolving, and with it so did social values.Photography vs. painting2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is this time period that sees the birth of abstract art. It started off with the paintings of Manet, whose technique involved painting in patches of color, rather than the layered technique that was common and accepted for the time. Monet (similar name, different guy) focused on the color and the way light plays with the s

Spaceman with no face 2 by bradwright
I've been playing Alien: Isolation for the last few weeks and it is scary as hell.
Alien Isolation Q&A with bradwright
Brad Wright, longtime deviant in the dA community, steps into the shoes (space boots) of Giger and Moebius as a concept designer for the Alien Isolation videogame. The game reportedly marks a return to the terror of the original “Alien” film in which scaring the audience to death was the goal, rather than the uncorking escalating levels of defensive firepower that defined the sequels.

I Have Seen The Future and It Is Retro!Over the past month, the deviantART community has been hard at work creating thousands of t-shirt designs for our latest Design Challenge, Retro Future: The Future That Never Was. Today, we are happy to announce the 75 semi-finalists, from which two winning designs will be chosen! Each of the winning designers will receive $1,500, 25 tees with their design and their t-shirt will be featured for sale in the deviantWEAR shop.I Have Seen The Future and It Is Retro!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Group Icon Designing Contest (Winners Announced)WINNING ENTRYGroup Icon Designing Contest (Winners Announced)9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This entry feels like the best representation for the group. The spinning animation is subtle and not too flashy, which suits the dark and serious atmosphere of the campus. The name is prominent and easy to read. Equally as important, as one of our staff members said, it's visually pleasing while not too distracting when inside a deviation artist comment's box.
It was a close tie between this entry and the winning one, as this one was very well put together. The reflection brought to mind a pool of blood, and the design behind the text is very expertly crafted and mystifying. The only things I didn't feel worked with this icon was how bright it seemed and the animation.
This animation had a very unique and respectable concept, especially with the insinuation of walking through hexed doors into the castle's main lounge, a good use of the group's lore. The only issue is the icon seemed a bit to

My category of choice is (unsurprisingly) Photo-Manipulation (although I was considering Space Art and Scifi for a moment).
Since I am not a real CV I took the liberty to ignore the lack of stock credits or description in some of the deviations, and some others already have a lot of favorits, but so what. Other than that they should all be eligible (I think). Enjoy the features!

Community Feature Project: If I Could DDHave you ever wished that you could pick a Daily Deviation Feature? I'm sure we've all seen an amazing piece of art or stock that we wished could have a bit more exposure. Well, this is your chance! This December we are encouraging you to feature your fellow deviants with a journal of images that you would feature as a Daily Deviation if you could. So let's embrace the Holiday Season and spread some good cheer by joining in and featuring our community!Community Feature Project: If I Could DD1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Think: "What Daily Deviations would I choose if I were to become a CV today?"
The Game Plan
Create and publish a journal feature of images that you would choose for a Daily Deviation Feature from your preferred gallery.
(i.e. Stock providers would feature images from the Stock & Resources gallery. Photo Manipulators would feature manips, etc.) Choose one gallery you would most want to be CV of!

PE :Artistic ExcusesYou know, everywhere in the world, inspiration strikes, new artists are born, and new styles are born. We all start as beginners and take our time...but then certain points...there are times when we feel a certain way about our art. Some people don't think that they cannot get better when you know you can. Some people feel they should quit....when you can keep going. Some people feel like you're nothing...when you are something...those things are called excuses...there is no excuse why you cannot accomplish your goals to become an artist. The quotes you see oftenPE :Artistic Excuses9 months ago in Personal More Like This
"OMG! Your art is so cute!"
"That is awesome!"
"I love your art"
"Your art is very cool and different."
That alone should motivate you to keep going. But if you still feel weary of your art and if you still feel like your art cannot get better even after comments that should motivate your to keep going, here's a guide to help you out and a guide of excuses that are often shown w

Our esteemed leader Giz chose DeeJayCRO and Futurology
Lil Onestopshopper chose giz183 and Senzune
And myself?...I can't possibly choose a favorite, there are far FAR too many magnificent wallpapers and artists to choose from SO I went back through every addition to the gallery this year and chose wallpapers that jumped out and screamed hysterically at me
Wallpaper-Planet would like to thank everyone for a wonderful year of screenie-customizationish-goodness! We hope you have a great new year full of alcohol, food and digital fun.

Realm-of-Fantasy is proud to present our So You think you can Design an Logo? Contest.
With all the excitement about logos in deviantART lately,
we figured what better time than now to have the community design one.
So you think you can design a Logo? You think you've got what it takes?
Ok, well here's your chance to prove it.
RoF is growing larger everyday, and we have become the Largest Fantasy and Sci-fi Art Gallery on deviantART.
We feel it is time to re-brand to properly reflect the size, depth and genre of our group.
We thought what better way to celebrate this than to ask you to be apart of this, and have the redesign as a contest theme.
Your Fantasy artwork has inspired so many people through the years, and we would be honored if it was your artwork that defined us.

Daniel Berard is a graphic designer from Quebec, Canada. He has been doing graphic design professionally for the last twelve years. He is specialized in corporate identity design (logo, brochure, web) and photo manipulation.
When did you first discover your passion for art?
It goes back to high school. I had to create this fake magazine for a class and this is pretty much where it all started. I loved the experience and decided to take a graphic design course the next year.
