Art Criticism: The Real DealHow many of you think of art criticism in a more or less negative way?Art Criticism: The Real Deal2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I read an incredible book by Terry Barrett called "Criticizing Art" for My Visual Cultures & Critical Practice class in my senior year of college. This author and the class has enlightened my view of what art criticism is and the components of it. And I'm posting this here on dA to share it with you.
This community is part of the bigger Art World, believe it or not. And every person who posts a comment on an artwork is practicing a form of art criticism. You don't have to be some snobby Art Historian from New York to be an Art Critic. Critics come from many different backgrounds- poets, musicians, historians, artists and everyday people- using what they write about to add to communicate what is "likeable" to the community. Critics are what drive the popularity of artwork- which essentially drives the interest in the communities they work in as a whole.
So here are some REAL Art Wor

UPDATE: Bracer Raffle #2 =DUPDATE: Hey Friends, I get to go on a surprise camping trip this weekend! Unfortunately that means I won't be able to call the raffle until Monday or Tuesday, but to be fair the raffle will still end on Saturday! So all those entering must enter no later than tomorrow night! I will see you all again next week!UPDATE: Bracer Raffle #2 =D2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It has been a crazy busy summer! So, busy that I have not nearly been as active with my photography and clothing as I would like. I also have been promising more bracer raffles for the future but have gotten behind schedule with them! So to start off the slide into fall I would like to host another bracer raffle!
So here is how it works:
-Favorite this Journal. (this is how I will keep track of the contestants)
-You must be watching me. (This is a gift to my friends, not passerby's! It is ok to start watching me now. )
If you are the winner, you will get to pick either one pair

Thank you! My first encounter with Tolkien was in first grade, when my mother
Introducing the deviantART Collection on FotoliaToday, we are announcing the launch of the deviantART Collection on Fotolia, a selection of over 3,000 images from artists on deviantART.

What is the deviantART Collection?
A while back, we announced our partnership with Fotolia.com through the StockProject group, where you can find hundreds of free stock images. We teamed up with Fotolia once again to create the deviantART Collection.
A team of professional photo editors started filtering through images on deviantART looking for excellent photographs that would work on commercial websites, like Fotolia, that sell images for designers and art directors to use in magazines, advertisements and product packaging. The team then offered artists on deviantART an opportunity to

Theme Songs for The Big FourSo I saw a journal entry where you set your music to random and write down the song that comes up for each step of a fictional story. I like the idea, and being me, had to make my own.Theme Songs for The Big Four1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Only, instead of being the theme music being for a story, this time it's the theme music for characters and couples.
Still following me? If that was a yes, great! If no, stick with me, you'll see!
OK, to begin select your music player of choice and set it to random.
For each of the characters/couples below, record which song came up and, if you're feeling adventurous, your feelings about the choice.

OK, here's mine. I'm using my trusty 9-year-old Insignia MP3 player for this, and I have a lot of epic instrumental pieces on it (As I'm sure you will see).

Negativity in fandom, and the dreaded 'thoughI was talking with a friend about how some fandoms are super fun to be a part of. And some...not so much. I regret to say, as much as I love Korra, it's not a particularly fun fandom for me. Neither was Avatar. (They're FAR from the only fandoms that suffer from the problems I'm going to be "talking" (word-vomiting) about, but they're the ones I've had the most experience with.)Negativity in fandom, and the dreaded 'though3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Fandom has become a dirty word. I have literally been accused of participating in fandom. Wait, accused of what? For me, the whole idea of "fandom" can be summed up in one word: excitement. Man, I love getting excited about shit. And I LOVE talking to other people who are excited about shit! And then our excitement spirals around each other's and then we make awesome creations with that extreme excitement. EXCITEMENT-BENDING! This is what happens EVERY time I post a fanart, and I c
