Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child

Today when checking my notifications on deviantart I found the following comment: (I think this kind of outrageous comments)
How to get allot of attention in Deviant Art:
2#-have a sexy body
3#-take pictures of yourself nude
4#-take picture 2 girls kissing each other
5#- act cute in the comment section
6#-Have allot of tattoos
this is my answer:
Learn to see things from another perspective:
1#- I'm not bisexual
2#-the body is art
3#-I take nude photos for where you see vulgarity I see art
4#-two girls kissing is the sexiest out there. hey what's wrong with that? There are sexual tendencies and they respect them.
5#I'm friendly with everyone because I am an educated woman
6#-I do not care what you think about my tattoos, I do it to capture memories in my skin that you like best
My work art is about free speech and my images are not all naked, I am part of a community of girls and I promote the photos, we are models with different stereotypes of beauty, sorry i
Troubleshooting:How to Photograph Christmas LightsTroubleshooting:How to Photograph Christmas Lights3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I recently read an article on Reddit that explored the best way to photography Christmas lights and it raised some interesting points. Rather than re-hash what has already been said, I've delved into a few tutorials around the web to give an overview of some hints and tips - and will link them all at the end of this article so that you can investigate for yourself.
When you take a Photograph, the camera will often over-compensate with the colours that it's trying to capture and objects that look fairly white to the naked eye don't appear so in the photo that you've taken. White Balance aims to override that. But just setting your camera to Auto White Balance and hoping for the best is not good enough...
The above shots show the same location taken firstly with auto white balance - and then secondly with the white balance set to shade. Setting Shade me

Most denizens of the West think of New Zealand as a little known outpost of civilization somewhere beyond Australia at the ends of the Earth.
Could any land be any farther from the European motherland, birthplace of the Renaissance that is the Genesis-point of the visual arts narrative we continue expanding and evolving today? And yet this remote country of islands in the Pacific has suddenly become a cinematic storytelling powerhouse, a film-friendly factory for the creation of some of the most important touchstone mass entertainment experiences to influence our popular culture in recent years.
Need references?Although drawing and painting "from life" is way much more effective and efficient than drawing from photos (I'll be writting a separate journal about this soon, no worries), you simply can't have a person to model for you every time you want to create something. And there are situations when you don't exactly know how to place that bloody hand or if the foot is drawn correctly. Similiar issues can happen with architecture, perspective... with everything you draw. Then, when you look for help, you may stumble upon Stock gallery and you find awesome things. Remember about crediting the used stock directly!Need references?3 years ago in Art Features More Like This

collaborationsSo I noticed that some people upload art that has been done in collaboration with another artist. How does something like that work? How do you collaborate on a piece of art when the other person is on the other side of the world? Or do these people all know each other in real life? (which I can't imagine...)collaborations1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And how does it work, how do you decide witch part of the drawing you start or end, en where the other person can finish it off. A lot of questions, I guess can only be answered by those of you who experienced it or by doing a collab.
Anyway.. this is kind of a way of calling out for me, I'd love to do a collaboration some time, but don't really know how it all works and who to ask for this, since everybody here is such a great artist in its own way
So here I'd like to call out to find someone interested in doing a collaboration with me!

Poet of Lovers & Rebels, Poet of Dreamersby MARX77
As is the case with all artists, poets too are greatly influenced by the world around them and how they perceive it.
The splendor of the heavens above, the dynamics of the earth beneath their feet. The uncertainty of life, the inevitability of death. But more importantly, a poet's inspiration comes from what they carry within themselves; their memories, relationships, their dreams, joy and grief. Verses borne of turmoil and tragedy decades ago continue to resonate to this day and are as relevant now as they were back then. Truly poetry is an art form for the ages!
Among the few greats still spearheading the world of literature today, long after they themselves have pass
Corvettes 1953 through 1984A Very General Summery of Corvettes up to the C4. (by Randy)Corvettes 1953 through 19846 months ago in Personal More Like This
The 1953-82 is generally pretty easy to decide the year and most people can narrow it down to a few years…
However- There are a few years that can be tough to decide the year. The thing that you have to keep in mind is A LOT of Corvettes are changed from stock by the owner's and a lot of the year markers and emblems are gone or changed to suit the owner.
In Very General Corvette Terms:
The 1953-55 basically look alike. If you see one of these year Corvettes chances are that it will probably be a 1954. There were 300 1953 Corvettes built and about 220 are currently accounted for. There were 700 1955 Corvettes produced. The 55 was the first year for the V-8 265 and the side emblem has a big “V” in “CheVrolet”. All but seven 1955 Corvettes are V-8 265 cid. (So there is your Corvette quest- find one of the seven 1955 Corvettes with a straight six-cylinder!) There were 3,640 1954 Co

In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Hola, Hector is my name (AKA elsevilla), I'm a comic artist and illustrator from Mexico and I've been a member of DeviantArt for the past 12 years.

I wouldnt be here if it wasnt for my parents and the DeviantArt community, that always keep me focused in right direction. I just want to say thank you guys, for making my dreams come true.
Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level. You suddenly find yourself magically reaching that special deviantART "destination" that is a connection point of art, life, community and communication that has no specific Office # designation.

The Latest Thing of Beauty

Imagine that you are a young social worker, dedicated to finding out the hidden and forgotten old souls who haunt the cold, mean streets of the city. You seek to report on their living conditions, possibly recommending they be removed from their roach-infested “homes.”

Something in return.Now I know everyone has stuff they are going through. It's not easy but sometimes we need to pull ourselves up after falling. Some of us have friends, family, random strangers that just happen to be there for us. Others have no one. We think about ourselves and the ones we care about most for the reason we are human and nothing more. When I draw I think about these things and other struggling and wish that some day I could help them.Something in return.2 years ago in Personal More Like This

What is the way I can further express not just the day to day thoughts but also thoughts that exist in neither day nor night?

Psychology meaning of doodles/drawings.*Disclaimer* not my own written work just a collection of notes from many sources.* Last Edit: 8/23/2014Psychology meaning of doodles/drawings.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many of us doodle and you may not realize it but doodles will actually tell you a lot about your personality and mood. The size, position as well as what the object(s) of focus of will lead you to some key clues. There are many different shapes, designs and colors of doodles, just as there are different dream scenarios, but there are some that are quite common and, as such, more easily interpreted.
Size and Placement
Large doodles that take most of your page, you are likely to be attracted to nature. Moreover, you might also have a reserved personality, but would want to socialize.
Small doodles on a corner of the paper suggest that the person is neat and organized in his/her ways. Because the drawing is placed on a side of the page, it shows that a person does not like wastage and prefers everything in its

Old school is the best school. I used to buy Coca-Cola in the 16 oz. returnable bottles. It was the best tasting Coke. The carp they sell today in cans and plastic tastes like cans and plastic. But then, that's what the generation of today wants. Lousy digital audio (no wonder we have so much really shitty and annoying music), grainy digital photography with odd looking areas where the digits don't resolve the detail properly, cheap crappy appliances, bland automobiles - the beat goes on. Worse yet, any thought of providing good customer service is completely gone now in modern retail. And no fins on cars. Remember the Thunderbird remake about 10 years ago? Made to look like a 1955-57 T-Bird - but No Fins! No wonder the car was a miserable failure, it looked terrible, no excitement. The original T-Bird was fun and sexy, easy to get in and out of. The remake was mostly bo
