A.k.a. "That beautiful detailed flowery art style".
Art Nouveau is an art movement that was most popular between 1890 and 1910. It originated in England and France, where it spread over the last two decades of the 19th century. The origins in each respective country vary though. For example, the German "Jugendstil" was first used 1897 as criticism against cheap mass production of works from artists like Henry van de Velde. Art Nouveau was by far no consistent art movement; there were several geographical differences, although some basic characteristics stayed the same. Those key features are decorative curves and flowery elements.
All in all "Art Nouveau" constisted of divergent art movements in Europe.

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

Working for free is the answer. You might balk at this because some critics say this gives the appearance that there is NO value to skill and talent. However- consider this: Working for free gives you amazing experience. It allows you to practice on someone else's project, see your work in print, establish a reputation and learn- big time. People who won't work for free WILL pay for a course! What better learning experience is there than to work with a client- such as a library or an independent book store or a school- producing poste

i really hate rape cultureand it seems like deviantart is a fucking cesspool of rape culture. from making tasteless jokes about it, to creepy fetish pictures, to all the fucking fangirls who fantasize about shotacon and yaoi rape... just what the fuck?!???i really hate rape culture10 months ago in Personal More Like This
i've seen so many pathetic stamps and stupid memes about rape, so many offensive pictures of women getting raped (some even having the women get murdered and raped postmortem) and tons of fan-girls who buy into the whole "rape is love" trope when it comes to their yaoi. And then you have the fangirls slapping "shota" on all of their 'uke" characters. do you even know what shota is? it's art of kiddie porn like seriously what the fuck?
and what pisses me off the most is that there have been people that i have really admired and respected here, like fantastic artists, who have left because of all the rape culture. i've seen people politely try to explain to these scumbags how rape is offensive and triggering. and how do these

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier.

Listen to me and stay home with me by the fireplace. My mother had said.
But I didn't listen.
I walked the path and didn't listen.
I played with them and didn't listen.
I thought they were nice.
I thought they were friends.
Their big brown eyes fooled me.
Their kind smiles fooled me.
They welcomed me to their homeland.
They swayed around the Willow trees.
They scratched me.
They bit me.
They stabbed me.
They tormented me.
They pushed me.
They tied me.
They drowned me.
And this is how I ended at the bottom of the swamp.
