New Group Direction and Art FeatureHello Everyone!New Group Direction and Art Feature1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
We are in the process of pointing the group in a new direction. I recently noticed our active members are hose of the digital art, photomanipulation, and stock community. As a result we have reduced the group gallery down to just that! We will also be adding more opportunities for members to become more involved with the group, and soon we will be adding a new type of member status to the group! If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for things we should do with the group feel free to send the group or one of our moderators a message.
Also, please welcome our new moderators: :iconTeddy-Cube: :iconAlexandraVBach: :iconareemus: :iconLovesRedRose: :iconeclipsy:

This group focuses on encouraging artists.
Thankfully the operation was successful and I am recovering well and would like to thank the members for their good wishes, which are very much appreciated.:iconttaasst:
:icondboland2012: did an amazing job in my absence and will continue helping with the group when he is able, which I am very pleased about. I have included some of my favourite artworks from his gallery in this feature not only as an expression of thanks but because they are beautifully painted as I am sure everyone will agree.
Another feature of amazing artworks from our very talented members, which I hope everyone will enjoy and be inspired by. Our membership is steadily growing and at the time of submitting this journal is 3,813 and our galleries as I always write, contain even more amazing and inspirational art, which is well worth viewing as

The F Works
Welcome to the 10th in the series of The F Word. Recently I asked my watchers in a poll about their one favourite work by an artist in deviantART, with a reason as to why they chose it, even if it wasn't mandatory. I also have a few more wonderful works to feature as well along with some other information around dA including contests!

"The image is soooo sweet I love their fun and full of love emotions and the wackiness of the image truly magical and lovely! "

When you want to quit art, think about this...I think most of us had it at some point. A moment in which we felt sad about our art. It might have been a full developed artblock, or just a small moment of hopelessness, perhaps questioning our artistic career, asking yourself "Why did I actually start doing this?".When you want to quit art, think about this...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've had many moments like that. Most of them triggered by another failed drawing, a total lack of inspiration (while I needed to get creative work done --nothing more annoying than that!), or another harsh critique that was just a bit too much to handle, at that particular moment.
I've had many times that I doubted myself. There have been times when I questioned my creativity in general. Times when I was sad about just another harsh critique, or depressed for being turned down by another group or publisher. Times when I got angry and shouted that I wanted to quit art altogether.
But eventually, I never quit.
The point is... no matter how angry or sad I am, it always takes me a while to calm down and

The stuff that artists go through.There are so many pro's and con as to being an artist, professional or as a hobby.The stuff that artists go through.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
It feels nice to be able to express yourself through something you make and when that something turns out to be looking good we get this sense of accomplishment.
Most of the time though there are bad feelings mixed with the good ones.
Not being understood. Those moments where your friends or family does not understand that you have to desire to be alone and work on your art. Those copious amounts of hours you spend working and they wonder why you wouldn't rather be outside relaxing in the sun or hang out with your friends.
The only people who will ever fully understand this are other artists or simply very understandable people. It's important they they will eventually understand so there wont be any hurt feelings. Try to explain ti as calmly and rational as you can, perhaps with using examples in terms they would understand.
Pumpkin CarvingHalloween is just around the corner. To celebrate, this week's feature is all about the awesome works of art made from this delicious orange fruit. Some pumpkin carvings are made to be viewed lit up, the image projected being the goal of the carving. Others are made to be viewed by the light of day and are wonderfully detailed sculptures. Lit or not, they're all stunning.Pumpkin Carving1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

Este número hemos tardado un poco más en lanzarlo debido a las vacaciones y la gran cantidad de material que incluimos. Intentamos comprimir al máximo el archivo para subirlo de una sola vez y no tener que dividirlo (resultó ser un poco incómodo en el número anterior).
En esta entrega, tal y como en el número 2, hemos incluido arte tradicional, digital, 3D y fotomontaje, así como también 3 tutoriales exclusivos para Templum.
Hacemos un llamado a todos aquellos artistas que quieran compartir tutoriales. Enviadnos vuestros tutoriales para poder compartirlo con nuestros lectores!! creemos que seguir paso a paso la creación de un trabajo facilita el aprendizaje, ¿por qué no compartir con el mundo nuestros conocimientos? ^___^

Topic 1: Am I on the right track to becoming a better artist?
Does your work from today, look closer to your initial goal than your work from last week? (this needs to be both in skill and idea.)
Good skills: Honing your technique, training you muscle memory, being more knowledgeable about your tools and art rules. With art rules I mean: Perspective, form, light, texture, composition.
Good ideas: Storytelling, characteristics, charm, emotion and design. Not just making things look polished but also convey something more, something that brings it to life and speaks to pe

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.

So Close Yet So farSo Close Yet So far7 months ago in Personal More Like This
An ended project called "so close yet so far" which was all about our daily routine lives and how we communicate with people in every possible way, our feelings towards each other from miles away and how we actually handle the situation when we see someone doesn't matter if she/he is a family member, wife, husband, friend or a complete stranger, through a webcam or a photo shared on Facebook. It was all about capturing the moment and sharing it. From the moment that this idea got born many have shared not only their presence they actually shared their lives with me and at the same time many misunderstood the reason of this call for their participation. Many talked about their routine lives, wishes, dreams...and some about their deepest secrets that even the closest people to them are not aware of...so far we are from each other, even when we are with someone, and so close is that distance when a heart is open.A project that was not about

The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.Concept art is getting bigger and bigger. More people know what it is nowadays, it gets shown in the media more often and more books get released. This automatically results into more people wanting to become concept artists. So many artschools are now creating special courses all towards game art or concept art. (Game art can also include UI design, 3D modeling etc.).The 5 bullshit myths of concept art.11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Yet it is a fairly new thing to most people and the idea of "becoming a concept artist" has grown rapidly over such a short time that a lot of people who are new to it seem to get a lot of misguide info. I am going to try to list this misguided info and direct you to the correct info.
(Again I would always advise you to do your own research and form your own knowledge and not just simply agree with what you read online, not from anyone, not from me. Even though i'm right .. ofcourse. *wink *wink )
Devious Journal EntryFreaky Features AHOY!Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This week I am featuring works that are more.....unusual
So I broke free from mainly featuring photographers (as I tend
to do) and showcase some the the amazing artists out there!
Most are either digital and traditional art, but I did slip a few
photos in there as well.
I try to feature artists that have created something showing
extraordinary talent in either the execution of creating it, or
in the message that it portrays.
Never stop imagining, creating, and sharing.
