Urbex 19#Schools...have you ever wandered through a school after hours and felt just a little bit spooked? I have occasionally - and also office blocks, but that's another article!

"Urban Exploration is the exploration of man-made structures. Usually these are abandoned ruins, or components that used to be part of everyday life but are no longer seen on a regular basis by the human eye. This series of articles aims to high
The dA commUNIty and YouThe dA commUNIty and YouThe dA commUNIty and You1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
When first stumbling upon deviantArt, whether 5 months or 5 years ago, we decided to join because we wanted to share our art. We wanted our work to be seen, to be appreciated, to be understood. However, it can be a long and difficult journey from obscurity into the spotlight. Many newcomers and even long-time deviants are sometimes overwhelmed and discouraged by a seeming lack of interest and/or exposure for their work. After all, that's what dA is for, right? Not necessarily - the answer to that question is a bit more involved than a simple "yes" or "no".
Society in general has become used to instant gratification. Want the new album by your favorite artist? With the click of a mouse, you've got it! Need to get in touch with your cousin who's moved to Italy? It's easy -- just Skype! The college you want to attend is across the country? No problem, they offer online courses!
You may be wondering how this is relevant to dA. Well,
Favorite Art QuotesWe have art so that we may not perish by the truth.Favorite Art Quotes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Life beats down and crushes the soul, and art reminds you that you have one.
For me, painting is a way to forget life.
An artist is a dreamer consenting to dream of the actual world.
A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.
While I recognize the necessity for a basis of observed reality... true art lies in a reality that is felt.
The question of common sense is always what is it good for? - A question which would abolish the rose and be answered triumphantly by the cabbage.
James Russell Lowell
Listen carefully to first criticisms made of your work. Note just what it is about your work that critics don't like
Where do you draw the line with 3D realism?I graduated a few years ago with a degree in illustration and animation. Something one of my tutors asked us once really stuck in mind, so not in exact words it was something to this effect:Where do you draw the line with 3D realism?1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
"How much 3D realism is too much? If the 3D is too realistic isn't it just worth to photograph or film something?"
It's a good question really, everytime 3D modelling/animation hits the roof with realism, you know it's inevitable that someone is going to come along and make it one step better. But imagine hours and hours and hours and hours (you get the idea) of 3d modelling, then rendering, then all that post production work, just to make a scene or characters look realistic. Anyone who does 3d modelling or animation/film can tell you, loading bars are one of the banes of their work.
They can often produce amazing results these days, there's no doubt 3D modelling and film have taken amazing strides over many years. Of course some situations you absolutely can

Awhile ago I was seriously considering deactivating my account, cause I felt that what I did wasn't enough and no one liked it, that was until a special person appeared, FictionChick (by the way... awesome nick ) and without knowing it she tought me that art its not about how many viewers, favorites or watchers you have, its not about a silly number on your main page... Its about reaching someones soul and make them smile when they're sad, move them in beautiful and unknown ways, that even if it only reaches one person, then that's okay, cause you made a difference in that one person, and for that I'm very thankful my friend
Then, after her, all of you came and made me think, "Hey,maybe I was wrong all along..." and now I can see that I was, and I wanted you guys to know, I will for ever be grateful.
That's all, hope I didn't make anyone feel unco

HAIRY WERWOLF T-SHIRTS!
Click to see larger example
Had this design in my mind for a while with all the brainstorming for more t-shirts for my store, and I came up with this! I'm sure its not 100% original, but hope you guys like it! Also, what other colors do would you be interested in? I'm also considering doing feline fur patterns, like tiger, leopard, etc. I'll have to re-do the entire thing to make a black version, so for now I'm sticking with the white. Mostly because it stands out way better.
Click here to purchase a shirt!
I apologize that the price is high, but I only make a few bucks off each of my t-shirts, so I can't do much to take the price down. Please note that there are kids' sizes too, so don't confuse them with the adult sizes.
Enjoy and leave feedback in the comments about more from this style!

Culpeo babbles: Childhood OdditiesOdd topics require odd titles.Culpeo babbles: Childhood Oddities1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This journal exists because the other one's getting old and i needed something to keep this interesting. Also, the amateurish journal skin i created years ago annoys me and since i'm an absolute N00b when it comes to CSS i thought it would be best to finally remove it.
The last nights i was biking through our town to do nightshift (i love doing that. Not a single soul around and you realise how quiet even the civilised parts of the world can get) and while letting my thoughts flow i was grabbed by some intense nostalgia for some reason. I remembered my childhood especially and....how ridiculously naive i used to be back then. The way i saw the world, all the things i had to learn and understand first (the very anatomy of „sarcasm" for example).
I remembered some cases that appear especially wondrous to me nowadays when i think about it so i thought it would be funny if i share some of them.

And I'm back for the feature... oh my, I wasn't here for almost 2 weeks Sorry cuz of that, but I have to make ton of stuff for college, so I probably won't be here that much in next upcoming weeks. So I hope you can also wait for my new stuff which I draw (a little slowly...I paused process cuz of school ).
But I also have great news for you. One of my newest drawings which I still draw, I record. So soon you'll be able to see on our YouTube account whole process how I draw my paintings. From sketch till finished piece. But I guess I'll have to post it in few parts (cuz I already draw it more than 14 hours and I just started ).
And here is the feature. I featured some amazing character and environment pieces by great artists all around dA. If you like these works, then fav them... and you can also fav this article and help these artists, so they can get more attention. Thank you and I hope you enjoy this feature

i have seen in my life many artists who proclaimed they want to develop their skills, and kept bashing on everyone and everything on the way....and for some reason those guys never got anywhere...
here is why..
there is a value to different approaches, different styles. realism, manga , cartooney disney, my little pony, furries....don't waste your time tryint to bash any of the stuff you don't personally like
you are missing out, bigtime!
see there is a reason why that stuff is popular. and by that i mean on the visual side. so instead of flaming , trolling and bashing, try understanding the inner workings of it.
here are some specific examples
realism- it is a wonderfully complex base , reflects one's skill in capturing reality, but in it there are differences between photo referenced, real life work and no reference. ALL HAVE THEIR VALUE AND IMPORTANCE! from photos you can learn alot, gain analytic skills, develop an attention to
