What is realism?
Realistic art is art that captures so much detail, it looks almost real/photographic. Fantasy art can also be realism if it the level of shading/tones/ details create a photographic appearance. Realistic art is quite mind blowing. In realism, there are is no lineart. Usually, there is a giant range of tones and colors that breathe together. If it is monochrome, the tones are equally as varied, but greyscale instead.
Take a look at some breath taking pieces of art:
PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the Legend3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b
PE: Getting the Most out of dA: Chat and ForumsThe Forums and the Chatrooms, collectively known as the dAmn (deviantART Message Network), are home to many kinds of discussion. In this article we'll briefly go over the different forums and chatrooms there are, with some specific attention to those that are helpful for you as deviant who wants to contribute to the community.PE: Getting the Most out of dA: Chat and Forums2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
First, the forum are not the place to go ask for help or report a problem with deviantART - but they do have the handy Need HELP? thread which tells you exactly where to go with your question.
So if not that, then what are the forums for? Let's break it down down down to the subcategories!
Tip: before making a thread, always have a look not only at the Forum Posting Guidelines to the top, but also at other recent threads to see what the forum is for and what response you can expect.
PE: Power of PerspectivePE: Power of PerspectivePE: Power of Perspective2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Perspective is the angle and depth of a piece of art. Changing perspective allows for drastic differences. There is more than one kind of perspective, and all of them allow for more dynamic pieces of art if used correctly.
There are three common choices, and these are explained later.
Usually perspective deals with how close things appear, and correctly rendering perspective adds depth to an image and increases the impact of the composition.
One Point Perspective
One point perspective is where there is one vanishing point in a piece. . A vanishing point is essentially the in-the-distance-until-you-can'
t-see anymore point.
You see this perspective often, images of roads, or landscape often have one point perspective.
Examples of one point perspective:
It's All About Presentation (Mostly)As more and more people start taking pictures of their nether regions on their iphones or posing myspace style in front of their HTC's - the competitive world of getting a Daily Deviation gets just that much harder... I kid. But... daily, I am bombarded with awesome suggestions (which I love) and I'm not complaining about. But there has to be a criteria of sorts, that sets an image above the rest. Here are a few things I look for that you might not have noticed before... The first thing I look at when I stumble across an image or view a suggestion from somebody, is how the artist has presented their work to the deviantART Community.It's All About Presentation (Mostly)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Your image isn't everything. Not anymore. In the past I have given Daily Deviations to pieces with titles that are a combination of random letters and numbers, or that are very obviously still the source file title - or that tends to be just a keyboard mash-up. Everyday CVs are sent many many notes suggesting pieces o

They tear through my arms,
my legs, my back.
They leave behind this red,
the Water of life.
Pouring out through these cuts,
only never to return.
Leaving my pain with me,
staying to torment me.
As I watch it drip
And pool below me.
I remember all the feelings,
of happiness before this.
They hide from my eyes,
Where did they go?
Are they in this pool?
Forming at my feet.
or could they possibly be,
in the river running?
In the red, it flows

About Ciel & SebastianThere are a lot of enquiries on Ciel and Sebastian and I thought it will be good to jot them here and for some quick references.About Ciel & Sebastian3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ciel and Sebastian are both Ball-Jointed Dolls (BJDs). For a quick explanation of what a BJD is, here is the Wikipedia's explanation:
"A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. BJD style has been described as both realistic and influenced by anime. They commonly range in size from about 60 centimetres (24 in) for the larger dolls, 40 cm (16 in) for the mini dolls, and all the way down to 10 cm (4 in) or so for the tiniest of the tiny BJDs. BJDs are primarily intended for adult collectors and customizers. They are made to be easy to customize, by painting, changing the eyes and wig, and so forth."
These BJD doesn't come with makeup, outfits, eyes , wig. The price quoted for these dolls is usually just the basic doll (head+body). To cut long story short, I have appended some information about them:

Worthy of death in 30 seconds to 1 billion peopleAfter my last journal, multiple people have told me that I hate religious people and religions. First, I'd like to contend the charge of hate. "Hatred (or hate) is a deep and emotional extreme dislike that can be directed against individuals, entities, objects or ideas." My strong dislike for faith is not emotional in nature. I have good reasons for holding the opinions I hold. Unquestionably believing things which are not falsifiable is a recipe for disaster.Worthy of death in 30 seconds to 1 billion people2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But don't I select the absolute WORST of the religious folk for my journals which represent a tiny minority? Most Christians and Muslims really don't beat their kids for not reading the Bible, or the Koran. That's obvious true, but entirely besides the point.
My argument has always been that the majority of moderates who self-identify as members of certain religions are good not because of their religion, but in large part despite it. The majority of modern Christians would be stoned to death in the days of the Old Testament, or

Help Stop HomophobiaI am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.Help Stop Homophobia3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom
