Many times a friend or a deviant has said to me, "oh I could never fold origami, I'm not gifted that way", but it's just not true! As part of projecteducate's Artisan Crafts week, I'm going to show you how simple it is to find and fold something gorgeous and to present it well to your internet audience.
With just a little inspiration and a bit of patience, ANY one of us could fold something absolutely lovely. So what are you waiting for?? Let's get folding!
1) BE INSPIRED
First of all, you need to figure out what you want to fold. You need inspiration from looking at gorgeous origami, from admiring nature and the world around, or maybe it'll just hit you like a random lightning bolt. We are super privileged to have many experienced and skilful origamists on dA, many who create their own models from scratch. From persona

My name is Eddy , i was born and raised in Lima and a few years ago i moved to Boston. I got into photography about 2 years ago after a really bad breakup because i guess i really needed to feel good at something and since i always loved art i decided to give photography a shot and now i'm really glad i did it has helped me a lot.
Why are you on deviantART?
I am on deviantart because i feel that this is a great community of artists and i feel more comfortable to open myself to personal ideas or concepts here than in any other social network ..but when i'm not sharing my work i also enjoy browsing for art and it is usually from traditional artist like Pixiecold or Lora zombie.

Tell us a bit about yourself, Senju-HiMe! How did you get into photography and why?
I was thirteen when I found out what photography really was. I had never thought of taking pictures as a way of expressing myself, as a type of art. Before, I drew, I painted and I wrote poetry and songs. Then, just after I finished the first episode of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 1 -by recommendation-, I suddenly became interested in photography. I was mesmerized by the make-up, styling, lighting and poses they used, and I decided I wanted to do the same. It was all by chance.
Why are you on deviantART and what makes you stay?
Always when I browsed through Google Images, there was always a link that directed me to deviantART. In my country (Spain) deviantART is not known, and so again, it was all unplanned. I decided to

'Maxstep' was first heard at Gayo Daejun 2011??As some of you may know, at the end of this past october, SM Entertainment released a collaborative album/music video called “MAXSTEP" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au5fic4IqEs)'Maxstep' was first heard at Gayo Daejun 2011??1 year ago in Personal More Like This
SM Ent. and Hyundai partnered up to release the ‘PYL Younique Album‘. Members included Super Junior‘s Eunhyuk, Girls’ Generation’s Hyoyeon, SHINee‘s Taemin, Super Junior-M‘s Henry, EXO-K‘s Kai, and EXO-M‘s Luhan. It is the first time an entertainment agency has collaborated with a car company to release an album... BUT this is not the first time we have heard it!
Crusing on youtube as I usually do, I found the 'Hallyu Orchestra' clip that SM did for Gayo Daejun 2011(right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=dCSBQtJs0hc) and right at 3:18 in the video is a dance sequence with Eunhyuk, Taemin, and Kai dancing to Maxstep... 10 months before it was officially released.
an interesting fact, no?

Know your Basics - TexturesThere are a lot of tutorials out there on how to create / photograph texture as well as how to use them on a technical level, but the question of why and when to use textures is rarely touched. This article wants to fill that gap and therefore looks at texures from a slightly different perspective.Know your Basics - Textures1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures in Manips as you know them
For a photomanipulator, the first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word "texture" are images that can be used in soft light or overlay mode to texture a manipulation or parts thereof. What most manipulators therefore have in mind, are images like the following:
Beautiful textures, sure, and useful, too, but have you ever thought of doing more with them than the aforementioned overlays? And have you ever considered using other kinds of textures, too?

Tell us a bit about yourself, Bloddroppe! How did you get into photography and why?
I've been interested in art since young age. I used to draw a lot during high school, especially realistic portraits. But after a time I felt that I wanted to experiment with other medias. I photographed a lot of nature with a point and shoot camera at first but I felt that I would like to try working with models instead. So I asked my best friend to model for me in a great field of flowers. I think it was my first shoot with a model so it was very fun and since that shoot I've wanted to continue with photography.
Why are you on deviantART?
I think I discovered deviantART through the site Gaiaonline. I used to post my photography there and was recommended to look up the site. I immediately started to upload my work and recieved gr

I feel like we, as humans, take time for granted, and that we don't really realize how fast things go, and that memories are never really movie-perfect, to rewatch over and over again. The more I try to remember experiences that I've been through, it seems like everything is blurry and a bit out of context. I may have said this a long time ago, but that's probably why I take so many pictures and hold onto so many things, is becasue I know I'll never be able to 100% recognize all that has happened. Even if it was one day ago, it will never be as vivid.
Here I ask you all this:
What is one of the greatest and most precious memory that you have, or something that you hold onto that just helps you remember what happened?
It could simply be a shirt, and just that smell brings back a happiness, or sadness.
It could be dried flowers.
