Texture Your World ContestTell us the story of your world in textures!Texture Your World Contest1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
We are surrounded 24 hours a day by objects that have texture, they may be smooth or bobbly, old or new, bold, bright, shiny or dull. You might see a texture every day and never notice it until you start looking. Do you sit at a desk that's textured, or pass an interesting tree on the way to work or school?
We want you, in the form of a triptych (thats 3 images forming a larger image see example here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triptych ) to tell us the story of your textured world. Each individual texture should stand on its own, both as a useful resource and as a cohesive part of the whole story. What story you tell through your texture triptych is up to you - but they must be textures that tell a story of your world in some way.
There are 3 categories for this contest, each of which you can submit to twice.
These are textures created digitally by

Liam Sharp 3.0 - True Talent Never RestsWatch depthRADIUSLiam Sharp 3.0 - True Talent Never Rests7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
August 16, 2013 / by $techgnotic
Liam Sharp was and is one of the most sought after comic artists in the business. After bursting on the scene by drawing the bestselling Marvel UK title of all time, Death Head II, he was back in America illustrating top line comics like Superman, Batman and Spiderman as well as special projects for people like Stan Winston. For anyone unfamiliar with his amazing work, his galleries can be found on deviantART. I recently got lost for an entire day perusing a single file of his Conan illustrations.

Final Thoughts from Clive Barker
Odyssey. I can think of no better word to describe the journey that took place these past few months.
With the prologue, “They’re Mad, They Are,” I began work on a vessel that was not yet ready for sea. And on that holed ship, together we embarked over open waters towards an unknown destination.
What I then witnessed both touched and humbled me. You, the mighty crew of the HMS Ody

There is no volunteer for 3D Art!? What do we do now?
First than anything, let's give a warm farewell to the volunteers who have stepped down from the team recently: ditto9, DpressedSoul, DemonMathiel, StamatisGR and WillowXD
As you can see, one of them is WillowXD who until recently, took care of the Game Development Art and Digital Art > 3D, meaning we don't currently have somebody taking care of 3D Art. Who do you send your 3D suggestions to then? For the time being, please address your suggestions to Moonbeam13 in the meantime a new volunteer is selected.

How did you first discover deviantART?
Back in 2004, TheRyanFord was already a well known member and he told me, "you should check out deviantART and post up some of your work." So, I did and here I am 7 years later.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
The cool thing that I love about dA is the feedback. Every time I posted work on deviantart I always got helpful feedback, rather if it was good or bad. Also, we have great company culture.
What is the story behind your username?
Haha, there was this family owned music store near my old college called "Bionic Records." When i was taking art/design classes and other liberal study classes, I would always go to bionic records on my lunch and buy some cd's or vinyl records. Anyway, I neede
Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!Hello folks! So this month is Flash, Animation and Flash month for the ArtHistoryProject.Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
So me and SqueakyToybox have been discussing about the idea of having a joint contest! We struggled for a while to find a good theme that would apply well across these mediums. So then we thought deviantART is full of members across the world. Even myself I'm from the UK and SqueakyToybox is from Australia so we're literally halfway across the world from each other.
So we thought a good theme to set you all is:
We would like you to create a piece of work using animation, video or Flash and we will award prizes for each gallery! So we will have a prize for a winner and runner up for film/animation and the same for Flash.
You have until the end of this month, February 28th to send all your work in and we'll announce winners shortly after! Now we appreciate that's not exactly a lot of production time for this sort of wor
Darkroom Exposed: HDRDarkroom Exposed is a series of articles highlighting talented deviants, noteworthy art and helpful information all about the Photography > Darkroom gallery on dA.Darkroom Exposed: HDR1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This issue features HDR (high dynamic range) photography, which allows for a greater dynamic range (variation between the light and dark areas) than regular photography. This can have a range of effects, between creating an image more like what you see with your eyes and depicting hyper-real results with a painterly feeling.
Some digital cameras can shoot HDR in-camera but HDR images can also be created using digital editing software with multiple exposures of the same scene. 'Fake' HDR can also be created from just one exposure. Here are some beautiful examples of HDR photography...

Well to be completely honest, i had no idea that this site even existed, until i got with husband . He told me about this website that is dedicated to artist , and I took and look and decided to join.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
Its addicting !! Ok well it is but the real reason why, is because of how amazing everyone is. The people i had met when i first got on da were amazing! The more and more people i meet, i feel like im growing not with only myself but with all of those around me.
Also i would have to say all the inspiration i have gotten from so many different types of art, and the biggest thing is being able to relate to people, because we all have our story !

Urbex #2Urban 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 highlight exactly what Urban Exploration is, how it's achieved and the some of the best Urbex Photographers here on deviantART.Urbex #21 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The internet has provided Urban explorers with many opportunities to garner news of new locations, the best places to go to 'urban explore' and what to avoid. Additionally social media means that we can share places that others will never see, and never hoped to see until the introduction of the internet and the ease with which we can communicate. So as this series goes on, we're going to look at some of the top Urban Exploration websites, at the current time, online.
