Hyperrealism is a genre of painting and sculpture that resembles a high quality Photograph, It's the type of art that your mind might not accept it as a hand-made artwork. Hyperrealism is far more advanced than Photorealism by the methods used to create the resulting paintings or sculptures. The term is primarily applied to an independent art movement and art style in the United States and Europe that has developed since the early 2000s.

Composition - Learning and Breaking the Rulez! A Camera can only shoot what you put in front of it!!!Composition - Learning and Breaking the Rulez!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
We all know that there are limitations on a camera compared to the fantastic power of the human brain and eye as image processors. Being out in the 'field' so to speak, with the camera, our senses are alive and we literally capture all aspects of the things that surround us in our memories.
However it takes effort and preparation to fully capture those senses in a photograph for other people to enjoy. Or just to mark an occasion simply for your own memories.
What You Need
A Camera first and foremost is the most important aspect of this process as well as the ability to see a prospective picture in your surroundings. Whether it's an SLR or not doesn't matter, however the next important thing is a Tripod. Tripods not only allow for definition and finery in a shot but they also make you stop, slow down, and take time to set up for an awesome photograph. If you've got a di
Of Art and Science: Welcome to the intersection."The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious — the fundamental emotion which stands at the cradle of true art and true science." — Albert EinsteinOf Art and Science: Welcome to the intersection.2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The words 'art and science', 'sci-art', and 'the intersection of science and art' are often to be heard in arts circles right now. Revolving around the interplay between artistic and scientific interpretations of ideas, art and science collaborations are very much on the rise. However, the bond between art and science is far from new; the boundaries between art and science are - and always have been - porous and diaphanous. Both science and art use imagination and creativity to develop ideas and explore the world. Both are questioning, inventive disciplines. Art and science collaborations are seen as new because we have come to perceive the arts and sciences as enclosed and separate. But if this hasn’t always been the case… how did the idea of a barrier between them com

Urban Exploration - Or URBEX as it can be more commonly referred as - is the examination of unseen or off limit parts of the urban world. This can involve underground rooms, caves, disused buildings and so on.

A Glimpse into Futurism Art❖ IntroductionA Glimpse into Futurism Art2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Futurism was an avant-garde artistic and social movement founded by the Italian writer, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It emphasized and glorified themes related to the modern concepts of the future, including speed, technology, machinery, violence and objects such as cars, airplanes and industrial cities. It was largely an Italian phenomenon, though there were parallel movements in Russia and England.
Futurist ideology influenced all types of art. It began in literature but spread to every medium, including painting, sculpture, industrial design, architecture, cinema and music.
Futurism exalted the dynamism of the modern world, especially in science and technology. It employs techniques of Divisionism, Cub

How photography helped end a warIt's said that a picture says a thousand words, but this isn't always true. Sometimes they say far more than that. Un-edited photography is the closest medium we have to capturing reality, and for that reason it's incredibly powerful. On a personal level, photographs help us capture memories of our loved ones, and of times gone by. On a larger scale, pictures can tell stories of hardship, suffering and hope in a language that transcends culture. Photography can evoke emotion - but more than that, it can move people to action.How photography helped end a war2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The power of photography was maybe never clearer than during the Vietnam war (1955 - 1975).
There are three pictures in particular that became iconic. They showed the human side of war, and the inhumane side of it. They showed the true horror that people endure and what kind of brutalities it makes people commit to other human beings. As the war dragged on, there was a growing movement of people who opposed the war. These pictures served as a powerful catalyst, an

Emotions Abstract by zampedroni
The earliest known artworks of humans, found on cave walls dating back about 40,000 years, tell stories.
Usually the stories are of amazing hunts for enormous wooly mammoths and other food sources. Others suppose they were plans for hunts, no different from a coach’s football plays.
Today we are learning of abstract artworks on the cave walls, seemingly deliberately hidden, and much farther back, painted by medicine men huffing hallucinogenic herbs. The purpose for these totemic abstracts is unclear. While native art worldwide retained its

Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article.
The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!

A (modern) history of dA emoticonsIntroA (modern) history of dA emoticons2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
As you wander around deviantART pages, there is noticeably one art medium that invades almost every element of the site. Whether it is the deviantART galleries, journals, news section, comments, forums, chatrooms, avatars or even dA profiles, it is hard to find a spot that hasn't been infiltrated by a familiar set of small, coloured, pixel circles. The art form I am talking about is of course the emoticon and throughout the past 10 or so years they have been happily adopted by deviantART and its community.
Although emoticons can often be spotted on a wide range of other instant messengers (IMs) and social media sites, deviantART has come to house a unique branch of these miniature art pieces. Whilst the majority of these alternative sites opt for simple, predominately yellow emotes with a range of basic expressions, the art community here at dA have stretched the art form far beyond its natural boundaries and developed entirely new styles of emoticons
