It’s our first communication with another human upon being torn from the serenity of the womb.
Our mother’s hug. If all the hormonal agents are functioning properly, this will be the important few moments of bonding and being loved that will maximize our chances at life-long wellness and happiness.

Houman Takes Us On A Human Journey Across DeviantArt
The old adage is that “Every picture tells a story”, which is true to a certain point. When you see the feature of street photography curated by hosagu you’ll see that we need a new saying, for not every picture is created equal. Sit back

There was once a time when art depicting the lands west of the Appalachian Mountains as pristine wilderness awaiting exploration was censured by church and state as distracting from more important matters of the common pieties of home life. But there have always been those who need visions of grander realms for the journeys they can only dream of experiencing, but that may one day be rest stops on their great–great–grandchildren’s celestial road maps.
“In space, race doesn't matter, nationality doesn't matter. In space, you see the world as a globe and you don't see the boundaries.”

Shine a Light
Light means so many things in our lives beyond mere illumination.
Cinematographers call the hour just before the sun sets “the magic hour.” Movie producers and directors schedule the shooting of love scenes and other important moments in their script to take advantage of the powerful effect that “magic hour” sunlight subliminally exerts on our psyches. The Dutch master painters of the 17th century were expert in focusing the eye on the “story

Once Upon A Time
Fairy tales usually begin once upon a time—a time that need not be identified because the tale, and its meaning, are of a timeless nature. The landscape of a fairy tale is often dreamlike, as if to tell us trying to apply normal logic to the story will only confuse the point that the storyteller is trying to make. Fairy tales usually involve dangerous journeys, often following after or searching for a wayward loved one, and entail a getting lost in the mists of time and space. The climax is almost always the discovery of a heretofore unknown inner store of courage in the face of evil and imminent death. Fairy tales tell our child
The Tree as Beautiful MachineThe Tree as Beautiful Machine3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
While searching DeviantArt for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on DeviantArt that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.

The island of Berk once had a troublesome problem with looting airborne raiders, but thanks to Hiccup and his dragon/best friend, Toothless, a peaceful coexistence reigns in the Viking land. It wasn’t an easy undertaking to get to this point, but audiences all over have sure enjoyed the journey of these action packed films.

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem

Living Rainbow Taking Flight
The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.
YouTube / DeviantArt Group (Link Below)Youtube has an amazing art community and I love YouTube because I have learned from so many other artists and video has given a new dimension to the visual arts. I define YouTube as both a Museum and a School. As an artist, I am able to communicate with artists from around the world and be inspired by great work. As an avid learner, I know that reading and seeing are two totally different things. I have been able to learn so much more from watching artists work in YouTube videos than in any text that I have ever read. There are TENS OF THOUSANDS of art channels on YouTube, and there is no visual arts category for us to upload in to. For years, visual artists have been hidden, despite our great contributions to YouTube. We are once again forced to think "outside the box". I feel that DeviantArt is the most significant art community on the internet and YouTubers can certainly use it as a means to network and exhibit their work.

If any of you guys have any suggestion of who or what you would like me to draw next, don't be shy and just say
Sometimes I don't know what to draw, I get stuck, get angry and quit drawing at that point so your suggestions would really help!
So I think that's all for now.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!

Lowell is a varied art student from Domenica. He is a real lover of nature and favors the style of dramatic realism. His paintings are absolutely breath taking with his stunning bright colors, and the way he uses those colors together is very pleasing to the eye! He excels at creating dramatic angles that really draw the viewer in and make for a dynamic and interesting composition! You are sure to fall in love with Lowell's colorful gallery!

Leading an Even More Creative Life in 2015!I hope you all had a fantastic holiday, and that you've got 2015 off on the right foot. This is pretty important, because in many cases we all have lots to do for school, work, or life, and for many of us this takes us away from our Creative Goals! Unless ART is your profession, chances are you have to find ways to incorporate a more creative lifestyle just like you would a workout routine!

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions

Microsoft, ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME?! This...this is one line you have crossed too far over!
Where do I fucking begin? Oh, I know, let's start with the name of the new Xbox console, the BIG REVEAL that Microsoft gave to us, and it is called...."Xbox ONE"!
Xbox ONE.....XBOX ONE?!!!! XBOX-FUCKING-ONE?!!!! THAT'S THE NAME YOU CAME UP WITH? XBOX ONE?! WTF, Microsoft?! THAT'S THE MOST SHITTEST NAME I'VE EVER HEARD!!!
But it's not just the name that sets me off, oh no, there's more, guess what? XBOX ONE is NOT backward compatible with 360 games!!! And to add insult to injury, it have been confirmed that Xbox ONE BLOCKS ALL USED GAMES ON IT, meaning if you decide to buy a cheaper used Xbox ONE game, and wants to play it on the console, TOO BAD!!! IT WON'T LET YOU DO THAT, YOU'RE FORCED TO BUY THE NEW FULL PRICE GAME!!!
As if Microsoft wasn't greedy enough, they had to go and pull this bullshit on us!

Strength and Discipline
When “strength” is the topic, do you think of physical or machine power—or of will power and determination to achieve the goals of your cause?
Relative to size, no human being has ever been as powerful as a common ant. And one person’s life ambition is often another person’s conception of total madness. Context and perspective is everything — as you’ll find illustrated by perusing the following gallery of image
