FINAL - August Poll Period * CLOSED!:icontransparentplz:FINAL - August Poll Period * CLOSED!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Hello dear members, watchers and visitors
This is the new way to find our winner of our POLL SYSTEM: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED of this period!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins a 3 months sub, our usual prize.
Follow the RULES to VOTE...AND EVERYONE VOTING and ING THIS BLOG will enter a draw to win 100 . The participants may and should click the Favourite Button too - you have another cha
Purification Ritual For Animal RemainsMy artwork and other practices with hides, bones and other animal remains has always been intensely spiritual. I didn’t like seeing them displayed as mere trophies or status symbols, and so set out to remake them as sacred creations and beloved personal artifacts, guides in costumed shapeshifting and curiosities for consideration. I wanted them to be revered, not merely possessed.Purification Ritual For Animal Remains7 months ago in Personal More Like This
There are a lot of factors outside of my control in this. I can’t control who buys a particular item (other than turning away the occasional rude customer) or what they do with something I made once they have it. I’ve just had to learn to let go and let gods in that regard. But I can do my best to seek out my target audience and present my work in a way that will appeal to them, and keep working my intent into everything I create. And I add a bit of a ritual to it, too, whether you want to believe it changes things on a distinctly spirit
Favorite Feature New Year Special!I would like to give out a big thanks to all of you reading this, watching me and supporting me in my work.

Community loveI just caught up reading the more than 700(!!!) messages you left me at my last journal and I'm pretty much left speechless.Community love9 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I initially posted the message to give some clarity to the fact that I'm offline for days sometimes, and that it takes me a while to read my messages (as if it doesn't take time already, considering the amount of messages I receive). Since it's the internet, I didn't actually expect people to care. Let alone; so many people.
Apparently people send messages for me to DAcompliments, or even made journals to show their support to me.
Which is really kind, but it also surprises me. Don't get me wrong. I'm more or less used to getting tagged. Mostly for my journals. Occasionally even for my art --

WISDOM NUMBER THREE!!! Work smart and leave your comfort zone. This part is my qualifier for art school, tutorials, and educational resources in general, because they can be good, but only if you make them good. Once you've gotten in to the habit of drawing consistently, it's important to start being mindful of what you're drawing, how you're drawing it, and why you're drawing it. A key ingredient of success is hard work, but if that work isn't purposeful it might not move you

PE: Contrast in Digital ArtThis article aims to introduce different kinds of ‘contrast’ in digital art, although most of the following points can also be applied to other media as well.PE: Contrast in Digital Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
(noun) - Contrast is a principle of art. When defining it, art experts refer to the arrangement of opposite elements (light vs. dark colors, rough vs. smooth textures, large vs. small shapes, etc.) in a piece so as to create visual interest, excitement and drama.
1. Colours and Brightness
One of the first things to come to mind when we think of ‘contrast’ are colours contrasting with each other.
(The colours labelled as 'primary' are the primary colours in the RGB colour model. Primary colours of the CMYK colour model are cyan, magenta and yellow.)

Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing BasicsToday I'd like to take a moment to talk about airbrushing basics. I feel that it is an art form that is very under represented here on deviantART and perhaps with a little education on it, more people might become interested in airbrushing.Artists Toolbox: Airbrushing Basics1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Airbrushing can be used for various different things, from body art, to painting model cars and planes, to painting sculptures, to painting automotives, T-shirts, canvas, even cake decorating, etc etc, the possibilities with airbrushing are pretty limitless and as such can be a wonderful art form to get familiar with and perhaps even utilize yourself. Oh, and did I also mention that airbrushing is fun?
Try it, you'll like it!
Airbrushes come with a few different features which I've outlined below to help make an educated guess on what type would best suit you if this is something you're interested in trying.

Let's Learn Portraiture: Natural LightingWelcome to the second installment of Let's Learn Portraiture! The previous installment was about Model Communication. For this installment, we will be tackling a topic for those photographers who enjoy taking portraits outdoors.Let's Learn Portraiture: Natural Lighting2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Portraiture with Natural Lighting
1.) Avoid Direct Sunlight
While it can really bring out the color of the eyes and make them pop, having your model stare into the sun should never be on the agenda. Not only is it exceedingly uncomfortable for your model, but it casts very harsh shadows. In most cases, you want to position your model with the sun behind them, or to the side.This will illuminate the hair and offer a nice glow. The issue then is that the subject's face may be too dark (underexposed). To solve this, you can bounce some light back into th
