Youth of Spring
The birth of spring
The start of Spring brings a period of renewal and rejuvenation with the first day of Spring, also known as the vernal equinox, occurring roughly on March 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. That day is supposed to contain an equal 12 hours of daylight and night and is one of two days out of the year when the sun passes directly over the equator.
Spring is nature’s alarm clock with the first day of Spring signall

I've been so busy on here with young-photo-club, Death-Chicks, GetDailyDeviations, and my own Group Spotlight features that I haven't been able to do a feature of random things I've seen and adored here on DA!

Mythical or Magical the Crowned Princes of Horses
It’s a common error to refer to unicorns as “mythical” creatures, since they actually appeared in Greek natural histories, rather than mythology. Unicorns were thought to be very real, albeit well–hidden. They are possibly the purest symbolic essence of the cult of the “Majestic Horse,” usually being all white and reputedly only being in danger of being captured by virgin females. Whatever their magical origin and possible reality, they have long been captivating creatures in artists’ imaginations.

How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?A photographer like me who portrays beautiful women is sometimes accused of damaging people. Why? Because we raise the bar for everybody to an unhealthy level. We give wrong expectations of how you or a partner worthy of you are supposed to look. We use all the tricks to make the people in the pictures always look perfect and beautiful – how can a normal person keep up with this?How beautiful do you have to be to be loved?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, from my point of view the answer is simple, maybe too simple for you: you don't have to keep up with this. In a funny way I face the same problem as you, but from the other side: how can I keep up with you? You have not only your looks, you have your own unique way. You have your personality, your style. You have your way of walking and talking. You can make a real connection with somebody. You can touch them. You can make them feel your caress. You can make their heart pound.
How can I as a photographer keep up with this? I only have a stupid picture, how can I make someone's heart pound?
Why Read?It's something we've all heard many times before, 'If you want to be a great writer, you need to be a great reader.' We're advised to read whenever and whatever we can, and there are plenty of guides to help you up your reader's word count, but it's not always clear why we should be doing so. Well in this editorial, WritersInk will be providing some answers.Why Read?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let us not forget that reading should be an enjoyable experience, and that can be considered reason alone to pick up a book (or click on a literature deviation), but for the aspiring writer there are a few more benefits to consider.
“We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read.” -- Jules Verne, Journey to the Center of the Earth
Reading is an inspirational experience. A good story or a well-told poem is satisfying to read in of itself, that's why we started writing them in the

Art Analysis #10: Dance by Alphonse MuchaBy Alphonse MuchaArt Analysis #10: Dance by Alphonse Mucha6 years ago in Personal More Like This
This analysis copyright Scott M. McDaniel, 2009.
I ended up last week by saying I'd do a Maxfield Parrish piece this time, but I lied horribly. The Parrish piece I'd picked is Daybreak, one of his most popular and well known. It's based on the principles of Dynamic Symmetry. I need some more time to work through that, so I'll do it three weeks from now. Instead, I'm going to do Dance by Alphonse Mucha. It's part of a series of four panneaux based on the muses (some of them, anyway). Aside from Dance, there are (from left to right) Poetry, Music, and Painting. This Art Nouveau style may have come before the term "pinup," but hey, these are pinups.
You can see the common layout and circular frame motif. I'll concentrate on Dance, but keep in mind that they're a set designed to be displayed together in a room. Mucha was one of the first t

The Top Reasons for Manuscript RejectionOne of the things that the literary agency I work for does some weekends out of the year is teach seminars on query writing and the first 5 pages of manuscripts (which, basically just means the first page of the manuscript). The seminars last only a day or two, but aim to help writers improve their queries and start of their books so that they have a better chance of standing out in the ever-growing slush pile. Since I know many members of the literature community here aim to one day be published writers, I thought I would share our sheet of the top reasons for manuscript rejections. Please note: These are in no particular order.The Top Reasons for Manuscript Rejection2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
Wrong genre Agents have guidelines for specific genres that they like to represent. Just like you and me, they have certain genres they love and certain genres they don't. Sometimes, it's not because of personal preference, but because they don't know the market for some books as well as other agents who are very passionate about

Newest Bellydance Video!Hello!Newest Bellydance Video!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a little while since I shared a bellydance video here! This is my most recent one. Here I am dancing to the band Ghost B.C. from Sweden. They're amazing. I was very fortunate to see them live only an hour away from where I hail which is quite a distance from Sweden. I hope to see them again soon.
This dance is improvised! HOWEVER! I did actually choreograph a dance with my new friend in dance, Nicki. We are very happy with it and I hope to share it with you soon!
That is all for now, cheers!

Through Sulamith's EyesThrough Sulamith's Eyes3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I consider Sulamith Wülfing being one of my most beloved illustrators of all the time - ever since I found her works. What do I find especially exquisite in her pictures? The colours she used. The way she used to draw and paint hands and cloth. Generally.
Who was Sulamith Wülfing?
She was born in 1901 in Elberfeld, Rhine Province of the Kingdom of Prussia, as a child of Karl and Hedwig Wülfing. For her further existence and creativity, important was the fact that her parents were Theosophists (as wikipedia says: Theosophy refers to systems of esoteric philosophy concerning, or investigation seeking direct knowledge of, presumed mysteries of being and nature, particularly concerning the natur
Tutorial Tuesday: ArmorOkay. So this one is a special request. And I love drawing armor more than anything else so I'll happily do this tutorial.... The only thing is that unlike drawing a hand or a human face, there isn't a definitive right or wrong. Armor in many cultures was an artistic expression as much as it was a practical piece of equipment, and as such armor varies a great deal depending on time period, technology, culture, and personal aesthetics. And given such I could probably write a book on all the different ways you could design armor for your characters, I'll just scratch the surface here with major things you want to consider when designing your characters armor, and then after recommend you do some research on how armor appears throughout the ages and cultures, As Roman armor looks vastly different compared toTutorial Tuesday: Armor3 years ago in Personal More Like This
