CopycatsIt's true - no one in this world can be 100% original and there is nothing wrong with being inspired. But when someone attempts to make a duplicate of your image in your style using your art as a raw template/blueprint, that's what I call copying.Copycats1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you decide to copy someone else's work, the least you can do is credit or put your own ideas into it. Don't use or attempt to duplicate their layout. Don't make a blueprint out of their art and use it for your own. There is a big difference between inspiration and copying! Have some pride in yourself! Don't copy others for the sake of your PRIDE. If you get heavily inspired, don't leave out the credits. If you want to become an artist or fulfill it as a serious hobby, act like an artist with individuality. Try to be unique, find your own style, and stop using others for your own benefit. Even if you do copy, don't think that the original creator of the idea may never find yo

The concept of Astrology or “study of the stars” has been around since the ancient world and can be traced as far back as the first dynasty of Mesopotamia.
For some, the stars are a portent of the future and help inform one on the best course of action to take based on the stars’ alignment. If born under a specific “star” or month during the year you may have certain characteristics and manneri

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

The New Street Photographer's ManifestoFebruary 7, 2013/by techgnoticThe New Street Photographer's Manifesto2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.

Which brings us to each year’s communal celebration of the passing of our lifetimes:
New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

What can you tell me about yourself?
I am just a person who puts together wallpapers as a hobby. I generally make all things, such as music, code stuff, I make renders lately. I'm just a simple person.
What is your outlook about art in general?
I like art, I think it's very cool and it's great to be part of a community of others who enjoy it just as much. I don't really plan anything I make, I just do as I feel at the time I feel it.
What was your last project, and what was its outcome?
Art wise was my Desktop Gadgets, that turned out nice I had some interest. Community wise my giveaways and events get alot of activity, my group too
How would you describe your art?
Mostly Desktop wallpapers aside from renders and gadgets. Theres nothing fancy about my art really.

SurrealismSurrealism1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.
