Art History - Greek and Hellenistic ArtIntroductionArt History - Greek and Hellenistic Art1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
The period of Greek Art began from the Cyclidian and Minoan civilization. Ancient Greek Art and Hellenistic Art have and had been influenced by several other cultures and their art. We are going to look at the latter part of the Ancient Greek Art period on to the Hellenistic period from Geometric Period, Oriental Period, Archaic Period, Classical Period and Hellenistic Period respectively. This will also include some context, social, religious, or political, to go along with it. This article will mainly focus on the art form in potteries, sculptures friezes in temples if possible. Architecture has not been included for the sake of already lengthy size. Click the images to see an enlarged view in sta.sh.

Using my drawings for tattoo designs...I get questions about this on a daily basis, so I'm just gonna reiterate for the people who are new to my work.Using my drawings for tattoo designs...4 months ago in Personal More Like This
*If the drawing you're interested in is labeled as a commission or is in my "Commissions" folder PLEASE DO NOT USE IT.*
Out of respect for me and my commissioners, who were kind enough to pay me to make something custom for them and then allow me to share it with everyone, I'd really, really, appreciate it if you don't treat my commissioned works as if they're free tattoo flash art.
It makes me sad. T____T
Also, don't reproduce my artwork for commercial reason, claim it as your own, make & sell prints, repost/redraw without credit, blah blah blah blah.

Wow, it's been a while since I last made a journal! This one will be pretty brief, but I feel like I need to make one. After all, I feel most ashamed that I've been so busy, I have been unable to take full advantage and abuse my premium as much as possible this past month, therefore, one last journal on my last day, to make my profile pretty, I'm decorating it with ceilonn's magical art.
So, here's a thing on my mind
Well, funny story, lots of things have been on my mind lately! IB students have like, 0 time for just not thinking. But recently, I was thinking more about my art, and what made me happy about it. Why I do art. Because when it comes down to it, when I first started seriously doing it, it was more out of obligation than my own choice. I made art because it interested other people, and it was an easier way to gain effort points on assignments. Back in middle school and early high scho

SubjectivityEdit: Due to my forgetting that some people are prone to read into what I have to say, here are a few disclaimers.Subjectivity10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I am not bothered by anything said below. I am merely curious.
I am not hurt by anything.
I only wish for your insight and some thoughtful discussion on the matter.
Your encouragement is valued but not necessary. What I want to see is what YOU would do in my situation, not words to salvage my completely intact, unwounded and absolutely confident feelings.
My self-esteem is alright. Thank you all for worrying, but no need. Your replies will allow me to have a better look at how other people feel in a situation like this. I will be able to use that in my art and writing in the future.Once again, I am not hurt or bothered. I must reiterate this because I find that I don't make myself emotionally clear.Please take the words below at their literal value. If it helps, please read it in a monotone.
Recently, VERY recently, I received this comment on one of my pieces:

This is an example of my miniature polymer clay koi:
Please keep in mind I only use polymer clay fish I make myself for my projects. I would never hurt or kill an animal in any of my works. In a way, I suppose it is a compliment, but being flagged as an animal abuser is not.
This post isn’t intended to be snarky or rude. I’m hoping that by seeing a real koi fry next to my fish that people will understand mine are fake.

Today I'm featuring :iconTo-Ka-Ro: who is a pretty cool lady, she's been really supportive and encouraging for a long while now, so she deserves quite a lovely feature to commend that lovely spirit. She has a really interesting style, I can't put my finger on it, but its really damn beautiful. There is something very new and fresh about her particular style, which is something pretty rare to find on Deviantart. There is a huge mixture of influences, lots of colour and lines that really work in such a complimentary and beautiful way. Its like, sailor moon was puked over with lots of colour, then got heavily criticized by the creators of Avatar and got refined by a crazy genius. In the

Today I have another special feature for you. And this one is very dear to my heart!
DreamerWhit has been my friend since 3 years back and I've helped her to improve over the years by (what it feels to me like) keeping her under my wings. But lately she has become such a great artist that we now help each other out equally as much! But she is still one of those insanely underrated artists that I know and I'd be more than thrilled if you could go and give her some of that love of yours!
Below are some of my recent favorites from her gallery!

Q. When did you first start drawing seriously?
A. Hum, I always loved drawing, I guess I started actually focusing on fundamentals such as anatomy a few years ago. Prior to that I just drew because I loved it, now I'm trying to kick it up a gear and start nailing down the ever so annoying perspective grids and colour theories.
Q. What's the most and least encouraging advice anyone's ever given you?
I don't think I've ever recieved advice, so much as been so bloody stubborn and competitive. My friend Hayley used to draw at school with me, and everyone adored her work. Which tbh, it was all bright and beautiful so you can't blame them. However it really drove me to keep practicing and working harder.
I've had a few people tell me I'm I'm really bad at drawing, entirely un-creat
