dA love for everyone! #35

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 13, 2012, 3:16 AM

:dalove:         :la:         :dalove:         :la:         :dalove:

As the title suggests, this news article's goal is to spread the dA love into everyone's heart! You will find here a little bit of everything, from awesome interviews with talented artists, art features, group promotion to random deviants' features. I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: Inna-Vjuzhanina :iconinna-vjuzhanina:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

It's my upbringing that formed my set of values and believes which consequently define what I do. And each person is judged by his/her deeds, right?

:bulletyellow: How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

I guess once I found an artwork of one great 3D artist on Internet and luckily it had his dA address. I came to check his gallery and was absolutely taken aback. Naturally I didn't want to miss a single update and so I created an account. Few months after I started experimenting with 3D myself, but soon realized I couldn't get enough of "creative freedom" in this medium and started making my first steps in digital painting.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

Probably that was since childhood. I just never took it seriously and never though it would become such a great passion in the future. When it actually turned into passion… I guess sometime after joining dA. When you have wonderful people around you who appreciate what you do, who are always ready to help with advice, give a meaningful critique and who can share your passion, you find yourself falling in love with art more and more until it becomes the love of your life. :D

Ariel by Inna-Vjuzhanina

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

My inspiration is a funny thing. I jokingly call it "a coconut from an outer space". It just appears out of nowhere, hitting you on the head and your mind starts to act on its own, forming a new concept with a lightning speed. Like thousands of pieces joining together and voila, you have a new concept along with irresistible desire to paint it right now.

And my creativity is at its maximum at night, definitely at night. In the daylight the progress on the paintings is ridiculously slow and I have loads of factors to distract me, while night has some special magic when there's just me in my artistic world and nothing else.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

Before I turned to digital painting I've been trying clothes design, photography and 3D. So I guess if I hadn't fallen in love with digital painting I would be doing some of those. Probably photography, it's my number one fave after painting.

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?

Ah, that's definitely this one: Mommy told to burn it... Love has different forms and the idea was to show a very unusual one. A child always loves his mother and does what she tells to do. So what if a loving child turns out to be a dragon and his mother wants to see the ashes of the city that refused her a refuge once? Mommy told to burn it down, must obey.

Mommy told to burn it... by Inna-Vjuzhanina

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

Sure thing. There's no such thing when an artists riches a limit and he understands – Ok, that's it, I'm the king of the world now. You never stop learning, no matter how good you are. Obviously when you only begin the number of things you find out is much bigger, but there's no full stop in this story. And naturally when I need to paint something I've never done before I don't feel sure of myself. I always postpone that part of painting as long as I can, crazily detailing all the other parts until there're nowhere to "escape". Bad habit. But the more you practice, the less insecurities you get.

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

I don't think so. I mean art is what brings me joy and excitement, but I never seek for a refuge in the world of my mermaids, dragons and superheroes. When there are problems – like real serious problems – my spirits are too low to fully put my heart and soul into the painting and I just can't work in any other way.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

Are we still talking about art or I can spill out the list of my life dreams? :D I believe the first option would be more appropriate. Ok, if seriously - when talking about art and things you want to try there's no such notion as "no chance", it's more "too lazy/not sure how/don't want to waste time for all the attempts… etc." If you really want to do something you seek for the ways, not excuses. Personally I've always wanted to do a little comic, but the mere thought of how much time it will take immediately puts the idea into the "maybe some other day" box. So it's just laziness, probably I don't want to do it as strong as I think.

Esmeralda by Inna-Vjuzhanina

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Well apart from obvious and the most important advice – being patient and practicing a lot – I would advice not being afraid of making mistakes. Make them. Only your own mistakes will give you a real understanding of how the things should be done right and why exactly it is wrong. When you start you read loads of tutorials which tell you – do this and never do that. But until you do that very forbidden "that" you won't understand why it's a bad idea to use it. Or quite on the contrary – find out that for your own style this and that trick can work just perfectly. Develop your style, don't be afraid to experiment and never stop mastering your skills. Art is a magical thing, so never stop bringing magic to people. :heart:

Literature Feature

ColorblindI gave away my name today
and it might be a metaphor, but I think
we only remember the quietest suicides
the walls are thin enough to listen
as the angels try to scratch free;
bloodied fingernails and God says everyone
screws up, sometimes
I'm waiting for a silent night.
I only ever believed in solid ground
and depressions' tides, and sometimes,
those little wounds I nursed deep
within my vocal chords (because
my voice is dying, too)
I can see the beautiful people, now
overdosing on their own opiums of
self-acquittal and dissolution
they ran out of ways to ask for help.
I'm fragile, but my glass ribs
aren't holding much
and I'm through trying to find something
different, because it's scary to know
what exactly's the same
yesterday I was someone else and
tomorrow I'm further into inevitabilities of
who I promised I'd never be--
I'm waiting for a happy ending,
but if you love something
you let it go.
BirthUntil the ovum opened like ghost skin,
Pooled like the ocean
And poured from my mouth.
I wasn’t aware of how god-like
We sinners could easily be.

The Widow and the WeedThe Widow crouched down besides the skylight of the warehouse, watching the activity inside. Below, about twenty people worked with chemistry equipment. They were producing a drug known on the street as Nail. It had recently been introduced as a knock-off of Spike, although the high didn't last as long and it was too impure to make Benders or Venus from. However, it was cheaper than Spike, with only a slight profit being made off of it. The Canadian Syndicate, the group producing it, was giving up massive profits to undercut their competition. However, it was also increasing drug related deaths as well as theft and related crimes, and that was why the Widow was going to put a stop to it.
After a few minutes of observation, she had most of the information she needed. The men and women working were all gang members. Unlike many gangs, the Syndicate didn't enslave people to work in their drug labs, so she could attack without having to worry about harming innocents. The only person she di
IsolationBehind the smiles and laughter,
The sheer happiness displayed,
Behind all that layer of generosity,
The respect presented,
Conceals a loneliness and timidity in her façade,
All but shy, she still puts up that fake,
That false sense of being,
In the fifteen years of her life.
Although happy,
Although gratified,
Although caring, and although loving,
She knows she can't find where she belongs,
And that only serves the isolation she knows is deep down
A true meaning behind her existence.
In case she wonders,
In case she hopes,
In case she wishes,
In case she even dares,
She'll in the end be separated from those
That is found as her best friend.
And even then, despite immunity to keep a forever companion,
She'll discontentedly put up her sham of a pretense,
Because she'll know she doesn't belong,
Can't search for that place where she'll fit right in,
Since she's all but a 15-year-old girl,
Too young to run,
Too young to live alone,
Too young to hide,
Too frightened to scurry from the protec
EmbraceSometimes we need to stop
analyzing the past,
Stop planning
the future,
Stop trying
to figure out precisely
how we feel,
Stop deciding
with our mind and what we want
in our hearts,
And sometimes
we have to go with
"Whatever happens-happens."
Because when everything you have
is gone
you will be left with nothing
but regrets.
and for once, just once
we just stop
and smell the roses,
enjoy life,
things will be different
You will be left
with your faith
and that's all you need to embrace.

In our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.

What's New

New Submit Interface (Beta Testers Only), deviantART's upload and publishing platform, has a redesigned submission process! This new version, which is only available to Beta Testers, includes a simplified and tidier interface that makes it easier to understand and use. In addition to the visual changes, we also added the ability to submit to multiple Gallery folders.

Screen Shot 2012-04-12 at 1.21.13 PM by danlev

New Writer Toolbar (Beta Testers Only)
Formatting in Writer just got easier! Check out the brand new Writer toolbar, which includes new functionality such as headings, lists, and text alignment! Though these formatting styles worked in the previous version of Writer, they could only be used if you manually typed in the HTML or copy and pasted from another application.

Screen Shot 2012-04-04 at 11.37.43 AM by danlev

Want to try these features? Upgrade to a Premium Membership and enable Beta Testing in your Account Settings.

Bug Fixes

  • When using the "next" and "previous" buttons to browse through "newest deviations" and "newest favourites" from the Profile Page widgets, the "back" button was not working properly. Fixed by shadowhand
  • Search on chatrooms page was slow and caused excessive stress on the database. Fixed by shadowhand
  • A minor display issue about long Group names in the Message Center has been addressed. Fixed by ZombieCoder
  • Some Group Profile Pages did not list all Journals in the "recent journal entries" module. Fixed by allixsenos
  • Group administrators lost ability to edit settings for the blog widget on the Journal tab of Groups for a short time. Fixed by helloandre
  • The Journal Skin editor modal appearance was severely dated. Fixed by mpsb
  • deviantART's oEmbed API had several corner cases where it was not fully compliant with the specifications. Fixed by drommk
  • Some links on automated emails were not working properly. Fixed by drommk and ZombieCoder
  • When editing an item's title, the box now expands vertically as you type and never shows a scrollbar. Fixed by samshull
  • Updating the main image of a deviation that was submitted from now correctly updates the EXIF information. Fixed by kouiskas
  • When selecting only one item, broken hovercards would appear on other items when they shouldn't have been shown. Fixed by samshull
  • When the last row of items had only one item, hovering it would make the pager jump. Fixed by samshull
  • Clicking on the title of a thumbnail in Writer would open the deviation instead of adding it to the piece. Fixed by kouiskas
  • Added a new preview and share buttons on the header of items. Fixed by kemayo
  • Reloading writer reopens your current draft instead of creating a new one. Fixed by kemayo
  • Links clicked in the writer preview window now open in a new window. Fixed by kemayo
  • Uploading from the toolbar stopped working. Fixed by aMoniker
  • had upload errors in IE8. Fixed by inazar
  • Writer toolbar showed the underline button highlighted when a link was focussed. Fixed by inazar
  • Pasting a deviation to move it within Writer would reset its width and height. Fixed by Alisey
  • Dragging deviations from the sidebar not onto writer would result in them reverting back to a weird position. Fixed by Alisey
  • Dragging and dropping thumbs was generally broken in IE. Fixed by Alisey
  • The Journal editor now gives the "put-art-here" hover indicator to everyone rather than just subscribers, since thumbnails are not restricted to just Premium Members anymore. Fixed by kemayo
Your Feedback

dj-corny suggested that the deviantART navigation should stick to the top of the screen when scrolling down the page so that it's always available. 

Suggestion: Sticky top menu by dj-corny

RockstarVanity created of visual mock-up of advanced Poll settings, which includes the ability to close a poll and limiting voting to certain groups of people.

Mock-Up for Suggested Poll Revamp by RockstarVanity

In the Suggestions ForumtheOrangeSunflower brought up the idea that there should be a way to view all collections that a deviation is in. This would not only be a great way to discover new artwork, but it'd also make collections more visible and encourage members to curate their own collections.

Check out my favourites to find out!


My Life Update:

I have finally wrapped my head around the fact it is 2015! where does the time go?. 

My art mission for this year:
Grow as an artist: I would like to explore new mediums and improve my current skills.
Be a better person: I would like to be a good example and helpful resource for others.
Fill the world with art: I want to increase my sharing of other artists and art that have inspired me.

I would LOVE to have my work displayed somewhere but that's a dream I might keep for 2016 or 2017.

For now I am busily creating pieces for commissions, kick-starter pledges and  Melbournes Supanova in April (its so exciting)!


 Have a most wonderful day!

Hi :) - so I'm starting new series of journals with useful resources - mainly because I'm running out of topics to write about and I just like some diversity. (I'll continue to post general art/motivational journals too every now and then)
Here are some of my favorite youtube artists, that inspire me and I hope that these resources might be helpful for you too.  :) (Smile) 

Level Up
'Level up!' is an idea of two Polish artists - Wojtek Fus ( WojciechFus ) and Darek Zabrocki ( daRoz ), who want to teach and learn from each other. Level Up has expanded a host team by amazing Jonas De Ro (JonasDeRo ) There are weekly, 2 to 3-hours long livestreams with critiques, overpaintings and Q&A's. It's so wonderful to watch them paint and talks about important tips on art and life as an artists. Also check out their lovely Facebook group and website with lots of resources.


Art videos that inspire, instruct, and entertain by Sycra Yasin ( Sycra ), who is a freelance artist and online art instructor on YouTube and His videos are so educational and he explains art fundamentals so wisely and quite great to understand. He also has a lots of resources on his website


Instructional How to Draw videos for artists by Stan Prokopenko. His drawing lessons are approachable enough for beginners and detailed enough for advanced artists. His philosophy is to teach timeless concepts in an entertaining way. Really adore his figure drawing videos.


Awesome videos - tutorials and speedpaintings by sinix . He provides different unique videos that offer people other ways to indulge in their love for art and all things creative. His "Montly Inspiration" videos are my favorite. 


Digital art tutorials by incredible artist Marc Brunet (Bluefley ) . It's so great to hear his thought-process along the stunning artworks that he makes and records on youtube videos. 

Captivating videos with lots of great insights by Feng Zhu, who 
has been working in the entertainment design industry for the past 15 years. There are lots of great advice and tips on art process. 

So, how about you - who are your favorite youtube artists? 

This week I found some lovely resources - two tumblr blogs about art/style/design - this and this one, awesome post about creative thinking by Grant Snider, great pinterest board about creative crafts, epic video of how were made the gravity scenes in Inception, the "secret door", that takes you to absolutely random place on Earth and inspiring video of Iain McCaig, who is best known as a principal designer on the three Star Wars prequels. :)


P.S. I quite frequently post some sketches and artworks in my art tumblr - and I have a weekly Music Sunday post on  and weekly 8 songs playlist.
and a youtube art channel:) (Smile) 

Have a wonderful week!
