Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.Protect Your Work1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon's QUOTE OF THE MILLENNIUMRex Colt: Woah Doc, you play videogames?Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon's QUOTE OF THE MILLENNIUM2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Dr. Darling: Yes, Rex. Videogames are a proven coping mechanism, like any hobby. They've been shown to improve hand-eye coordination, problem solving, social interaction, and self-confidence. And no studies have managed to to prove a correlation between videogames and violence. Frankly, anyone who thinks games are bad for you is a f*cking idiot.
Rex Colt: Woah there Doc! Easy!
Dr. Darling: No Rex. F*ck stands for: Failing to Understand our Capacity for Kindness. It's an acronym. Though I suppose this isn't a game anymore, is it?

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta
Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)Most of us have heard about Colour Theory - be it in school or on dA or as a term thrown about by someone somewhere. But what exactly is it? And how do you use it? This is what this article is striving to explain especially in regards to photomanipulation.Know your Basics - Colour Theory (the manip way)4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Technical Part
Thankfully, there's tons of reading material about colour theory. Starting with the wikipedia article on the subject (which seems rather dry and boring to be honest) and ranging to tutorials written by deviants for their fellow artists. Those are the ones I'd like to recommend to you to get started in colour theory:
Still too dry and technical?
Okay, let me put it this way: the use of colours in your artwork can determine its mood and atmosphere. If you do it well, it can draw in the viewer and make them see what you want them to see by putting emphasis on certain parts. Colour theory gives you a way to know in

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

The Street Photography of Chris Weeks
It was only after many long frustrating hours of trying to describe what’s so special about the photographs of cweeks...
That I finally realized I was trying to describe something that wasn’t there.
I finally realized that the magical something that sets cweeks’ works apart from others is that his camera disappears. There is no sense as you look at his photos of street scenes and other captures that you are looking through a lens, even the lens of a particularly talented photographer. There is a sense of simply walking through a town and seeing what you happen to see – without the

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

A summary in English:
Yesterday was the end of that dark world we lived.
Today, planning and acting we get what we want.
Life has no remote control, if you want to change something, get up and do it yourself.
Ayer fue el fin del mundo... si, de ese mundo oscuro en el que solías vivir.
De ese mundo en el que era mas fácil quejarse que atreverse a mover un dedo.
En el cual culpabas a todos de tus desgracias, cuando muchas de ellas tu mismo las propiciabas.
Ese mundo que nos parecía injusto, pues no sabíamos beneficiarnos del el.
El mundo en el que nos sentíamos desdichados y hasta pobres, solo por no saber valorar todo los grandes tesoros que teníamos, como nuestras manos, piernas, ojos, vida, familia, casa, perro, etc, etc y un millón mas de etcs., y nos enfocábamos mas en los valores materiales que no teníamos.
El mundo en el que todo justificábamos; no hacíamos ejercicio porque n
