Color Inspiration - OrangeThis is the second of a 7 part journal about colors. I'll take the opportunity of the 7 Days Color Challenge to share some material I've been gathering recently.Color Inspiration - Orange1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I've been obsessed with colors since I started to work with them and it's really nice to know their meanings and symbolism before applying them on a project. Hope you enjoy it!
Before the orange fruit was introduced in Europe, there wasn't a word to designate this color. The color was inicially referred to as ġeolurēad (yellow-red) for reddish orange;
Specialists believe that orange increases our brain's oxygen supply creating a refreshing and stimulant effect;
According to studies, orange is the color most related to fun. That's why it's popular among children;
Orange is the complementary color of Blue even on its

About Project Porkchop
The DeviantArt Experience can sometimes quickly become the quintessential example of that most frustrating problem: too much of a good thing. There just aren’t enough hours in the day to peruse the thousands of submissions and postings of artistic innovation, creativity and sheer beauty that are generated everyday.
So thank you for ProjectPorkchop!

Yesterday I did my last exam and I am finally freeeee! I wanted to thank you for all the sweet wishes, because they worked: everything - well, almost everything, but it's okay - went well. I only have to wait for the results, now.
I'm looking forward to using my camera again, because unfortunately I've left it all alone during this hard period. In the meantime, let's enjoy some wonderful pictures!

News and artworks that i liked!Hello guys. This is a little journal entry to news and a feature with artworks that i like.News and artworks that i liked!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The first news: From now on i'm going to be posting less artworks than usual.
The second news: I'm on partial hiatus.
The third news: The last artwork that i posted, Infinite, in a collaboration with Whendell Souza began to be worked before "Burning Inside". And "Burning Inside" was created in 04/02/2014.
Did you know that...
... "My Creativity is Broken" was created with ideas of "The Planet Odyssey"?
... "Paradise" was created to be a small part of a artwork series that never existed?
... and, the same "Paradise" was rebooted by Y44N when i met him in a extinct web forum?
... there were two other works such as "Pyramid State"?
... i didn't wanted to post the work that earned me a DD, "Go Away"?
... and i was depressed when i created "Go Away"?... is there a job as the "Desolate" in my sta.sh th
.what if.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
i get rid of everything -
one summer i found
a dead stag beetle
laying on the pavement,
brittle and crisp
dried out by the sun,
he must have thought
that he'd died and
gone to hell
the year i got hit
in the temple
with a hammer, hard
but not hard enough,
funny what happens
when you pull a voice
out of its chest
just because it looks
done, slick and silver
and only a sliver meant
what it said, i feel
deflated, i wish
i'd have known then
that in a couple
of years i'd have written
as a bad dream, written
you off in a poem
with the leaves and the
trees and the moon
as a fat white opal, sunken
into the wall that divides us,
the border from
my land to yours,
she is nothing but
to me -
what if all the dead
opened their mouths
and said everything
they wished they had?
(i saw the stars weeping when my nose bled)

My DeviantART StoryWe come to DeviantART for many reasons, accidentally or on purpose. Here's mine... When I first joined DeviantART just over ten years ago, I simply filled in the sign up details and clicked a few buttons and forgot about it. I was pointed to DeviantART by a friend in America who was actually using the site in her art classes as part of their work. I wasn't sure how DeviantART would work for me. Then the July London bombings happened a year later and I was caught up in it, but luckily one train behind all of the action.My DeviantART Story11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I managed to safely relocate myself and make the journey back home amidst security checks, police searches, frightened passengers and confused people. Not least my parents who were unable to make contact with me because the phone networks were jammed. Unsure of my emotions, I decided to write about it and it was then that I realised I wanted a platform to launch such writing from. I logged back into DeviantART and headed to the Shoutbox (fon

Odyssey Propulsion 7
He who birthed the strange tale into our world with a spurt of kaleidoscopic intergalactic vomit has now decided its end. CliveBarker has chosen his favorite Chapter Eight to bring the multi-imagined Hydra-headed beast of a story to the end. All that remains is Chapter Eight illustration submissions remaining open for the next two weeks. And with the perfect visual, Odyssey II: Propulsion will become another hallmark in deviantART history.
So many writers and artists from around the world contributed amazing gifts of their wildest imaginations, collaborating with each other and offering suggestions and encouragement to
Surrealism FeatureOne of my absolute favorite genres of art is surrealism.

Spines and Backbones
“Backbone” as a metaphor has always evoked determination, strength of character, toughness of spirit.
It is also an indicator of alignment, of being on the right track, of having everything in life in functioning order. “Breaking” one’s back means utter devastation, paralysis, losing everything. Being “spineless” is perhaps the worst insult any man would care to ever hear about himself. And then there’s the
