Summer Feature of GrimGloomTale  Please add this article to your favourites, so more people could see us!
Hello again! It's been 3 months since our previous seasonal feature and it's time for a next one, the third one. As previously, I'm picking deviations which have below 300 favourites, but it's still really hard - I'd feature all of them if it didn't take so much space. If you liked some of the works here especially, don't hesitate to suggest it for a Daily Deviation, here you may find all the tips how to do it.
Autumn Feature of GrimGloomTale Our group is 1 year old! This feature is the most meaningful from all the year, as there's no seazon closer to GGT in atmosphere than Autumn - it's also a kind of summary from all the year... So, this year (and I mean not since January, but since previous October) we had 4 contests (you can see links to all of them on our journal page) with many wonderful entries and loads of great prizes donated by really kind people, we got 6 awesome contributors, affilated with plenty of nice groups and pinned Creeping Wednesdays.Autumn Feature of GrimGloomTale 7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
And, of course - hundreds of amazing works!
In this feature you'll find works that have under 100 favourites only.
Winter Feature of GrimGloomTale As it was said some time ago, we will have a group feature for all our members once a season...Winter Feature of GrimGloomTale 1 year ago in Personal More Like This
and now it's time for the first one. The next such article, Spring one, may be expected in April.
As you may see below, we lack artisan crafts and sculpture creators. Don't hesitate to invite them.
Up and Coming IIThere is an abundance of talent here on deviantART, and I love browsing our fashion photography galleries for emerging artists, at the forefront of the next wave of new talent.Up and Coming II6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
There are always people who catch my eye, and I collect their names and keep an eye on them, because watching people make the most of their talent and fulfill their potential is a wonderful experience. I'm going to share some of the fresh talent I'm currently admiring and amazed by, so that when they're out shooting big campaigns and stories across the world, we can say I told you they were special!"
So have a look at these wonderful artists, this feature is the first in the series, check out the previous one here.

There's something new in town...For a long while now, I've been itching to create a group that encompasses the whole of the People & Portraits Photography Gallery. After chatting it through with ^3wyl today, we decided to launch one - and so ~PeopleAndPortraits was born! It's for every single sub-gallery of People and Portraits Photography. Every single one. You'll find a folder for every one of them and you'll find that you can submit not one but TWO works a week to each one. What else are we giving you...well...There's something new in town...8 months ago in Photography More Like This

Not So Traditional Tuesdays #11Sorry about this being a day late! I was out half of the day yesterday, and lost track of time while painting for the rest of it.Not So Traditional Tuesdays #114 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This little feature is now into the double digits of editions . This wasn't something I that had I planned on doing. Originally this was just a one off article because I was bored one day, and started typing in random search words. It is still fun to do though, so I think it will keep going until it no longer is.
I like to think that the things that make one piece of art great applies, for the most part, to other genres. A painter can learn how light and shadow fall from photography, photo-manipulators can learn about composition from a great Manga drawing, and literature can give you the inspiration to try something new or take your work to the next step. You may never try all art forms you see! You can however take what you learn from them and incorporate that into your own work. It could be the difference between stagnating and tha

Now with the warming out of the way, Hi, and welcome to the 44th edition of Traditional Tuesdays. This week, like all of the other weeks, I'll be featuring fifteen works of art from the Traditional Gallery. Any more than that might and you might loss interest or it could cause your monitor to fail in an explosion of awesomeness. I would feel guilty if that were to happen, so I'm keeping it at fifteen! The Traditional gallery is a vast storeroom of work that covers many mediums and genres. I've tried to show a diverse array of artwork, but I don't have room for them all. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

"A photograph says that you were so important, I stopped everything else to come and preserve you."
This week Horacio Coppola died. Many will not know the name, but in the Photography world he was pretty awesome. He died age 105, and was famous for taking Black and White photographs of Buenos Aires in the 1930s. But he also photographed normality. Some of his works included egg and twine - quite simply an egg and a piece of twine. Others featured a typewriter, but ultimately he shot normality, the everyday things that people overlooked. He's said to be one of very few photographers who manage to capture the romance, vitality and squalor of a great city. So a legend has died, but somewhere another will rise up through the ranks. Who inspires you? Which historical Artists have provoked you to reach the place where you are now? Or who you aspire to be?

Celebrating Diversity #13In this issue of Celebrating Diversity, I would like to remind you of an amazing feeling...when you see a piece of art created in a medium or genre that you have little or no experience of working in, and it feels like you're witnessing something magical, something beyond your comprehension.Celebrating Diversity #135 months ago in Art Features More Like This
It's wonderful to revel in the joy of How do they do that? and find inspiration in the creations of other artists. So I challenge you to take a step outside of the galleries that you regularly browse and immerse yourself in the experience of indulging in something new.
How do you celebrate diversity?
Do you regularly browse, comment on and collect art that's wildly different from what you create?
Do you watch artists who use mediums that you don't use in your own

"No photographer is as good as the simplest camera."
Since getting my first D-SLR, three years ago now, I have never been completely comfortable with the methods I use to transport it. With the camera came a bag, typical camera bag, over the shoulder type. But it's still not quite right. There are a wide range of camera bags out there now. Including one from deviantART - the dA Pro Camera Bag, but nothing has ever been quite what I need. The three common types of carrying a camera bag seem to be across the body, two straps on the back or even a belt. What do you use?

Today's theme is Tolkien - and take a look at all these fabulous traditional art pieces! Thanks a lot to *SandraHultsved, =Natalia-Luz, ~Doertchen, *erinclaireb and ~JadasArtVision for suggesting some artworks for this feature. Apart from this, I decided to extend Creeping Wednesday and include a short 3-questions interview with a person strongly connected to a specified theme. The next theme is a Rat. Let's see what you can find.
3 questions to :iconvilva73:, a fine Tolkien illustrator!What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?Well, you know, there wasn't any other kind of painting and drawing than traditional back then (the '70s, '80s). I've been drawing and painting ever since I remember; my mother used to say that if you'd given to little Basia some pencils and paper, she could have dissappeared quietly in a corner for long hours .

Thanks to his contribution in Alien movie, which was awarded with an Academy Award for Best Achievement for Visual Effects, Giger became famous worldwide and turned out to be an inspiration for many artists.Creepy corners of Giger's mind - Art History11 months ago in Traditional More Like This
Hans Rudolf Ruedi Giger was born on the 5th of February 1940 in Switzerland. He started developing unusual interets and behaviour in his early childhood, having a habit of wearing only black clothes or making his playroom in an only room without windows in his parents' house. He spent a part of his time on constructing toys on his own... like some very nice, shiny daggers.
In the '60s, he moved to Zürich and studied Architecture and

Today is New Years Eve, so before we share the roundup for December, on behalf of the Lit CVs, I wish you all a fantastic 2013!
It’s been a year of progression for the literature community, one I hope you will all join us on the continued journey for 2013. The community isn’t just 4 volunteers, it is ALL OF YOU, and I hope you share your ideas and get involved.
December has showcased some fantastic pieces of writing, and because of this we have actually snuck in a few bonus features. On Christmas day, we had 4 Literature DDs and from mid-December onwards we added some extra DDs over the weekend- something which we will now be doing every weekend!
(ps. Did anyone notice we’d snuck in some extra DDs lately?)

From today, every two Wednesdays I'm going to feature several findings from Traditional Art - with their theme fitting this serie's name, of course. Every feature will have a separate theme on its own - and this one is about the tales collected by Grimm brothers. Also, I'd love to see your suggestions with works to feature next time - and the next feature's theme is Shakespeare's Ophelia!
And what do you think of this journal skin of mine? (:
