International Women's Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women's Day, is marked on March 8 every year.In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc. In many regions, the day lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men

Good morning people! Welcome to the second volume of The Great Mandelbulber, a series of interviews to discover the Mandelbulb3D world with the eyes of artists who use it.
The wait is finally over, here it is the interview with MarkJayBee! Please, have some time to read it, you won't regret!
The Great Mandelbulber - MarkJayBee
Hello MarkJayBee! Tell us some about you.
I live in the small seaside town of Largs, on the west coast of Scotland, which has some wonderful scenery and sea views. As a visual artist and photographer, living in this location has always acted as a great source of inspiration for me, and I count myself very fortunate to live here.
I've been producing artwork in one form or another for as long as I can remember and that goes back quite a long while!! My influences mainly stem from Science F

Odyssey II is the second mass collaboration event to be conceived on deviantART this time under the watchful gaze and guiding hand of none other than Clive Barker - - the master of fantastical narratives. The result will be published next year in digital and traditional book form.
Read about the Project and participate in the creative event of the new millennium (before it ends, of course, with the apocalypse). Here is the current prompt inspired by the latest Odyssey II chapter chosen by Clive.

LIFE IS GOOD JAN 24Welcome to the great white north it may be cold outside but I have a cozy warm house. My husband bought me some flowers today what a sweety. So it may have been cloudy outside but the flowers brought a bit of bright cheeriness inside. It is great to be able to go to the store and be able to buy fresh berries even at this time of the year. Having fresh blackberries and strawberries and raspberries is like having summer in a bowl.LIFE IS GOOD JAN 242 years ago in Personal More Like This

This is going to be the last of the Birthday features that I have done over the past 3 years.
Our lives change and I presently have very little time to be here at deviantART anymore. I am having to give up a lot of responsibility and things that I used to do here on a regular basis. My main group :#only-wallpapers: , groups, notes, and comments are overwhelming at times, so I have chosen to cut way back so that I can get back into my art and have more time to see some of my personal friends here that I am sure they must feel like I have totally neglected them. Sorry guys and gals! Hopefully some of these changes will get me back in the normal mode again. Then I can be here more often with less to do. I miss a lot of you people!
Now on with the final Birthday Feature - Happy Birthday Everyone

It's not like the usual parameter pongs, but a co-operation between two artists with different styles, where the result shows off each artist's style. Just imagine Leichenengel's colourful psychedelic style with :devjimpan73: metallic spirals and shiny gems.

How to Give a FeatureI know that many (or maybe most) of you already know what features are and how to give them, but I realized that many deviants don't know how features work and don't even realize they have access to giving out features. This is just a little guide for those who aren't as informed, and for those who already are, maybe it'll encourage you to give out some more features. =)How to Give a Feature4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
What are features?
A feature is just what it sounds like- a feature.
On deviantART, a feature refers to a collection of deviations (merely a nickname used to describe a particular piece of art that has been submitted to deviantART1). This collection is normally displayed in someone's journal or in a news article in the form of thumbs.
Many features have some sort of theme meaning that a feature can revolve around a particular artist, a certain color, a specific medium used, ect. Or a feature can have no theme at all and it can simply be a bunch of works that you like. The possibilities really ar

FYI i learn more from watching things so most of these are gonna be video tutorials, artists talking while painting and timelapse paintings, since i prefer analyzing peoples workflow and try it out than straight tutorials that tell you what to do (not there's anything wrong with it though )
LEVEL UP: https://www.youtube.com/user/levelupsessions
omg.... the amount of stuff you can learn from these amazing artists is crazy! i suggest watching from session 1 till the latest. you cant miss a thing these guys say, plus these guys are pretty fun most of the time. its a nice light, but informative bunch of videos
