Conceptual photography-Forever alone on DeviantartI apologize for these types of posts....It just saddens me so much to see how Deviantart has changed its front page system....and if it hasn't changed...then what is going on?!Conceptual photography-Forever alone on Deviantart3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Photography has always taken blows for not being considered art form and Deviantart is allowing those blows to be justified. I'm not saying every photograph needs to be conceptual to be considered art, but come on...give us something to work with! The photographs that have been appearing lately are, technically, terrible photographs, yet may be popular for another reason *cough cough, cosplay or BOOBS* Deviantart needs to save the fine art realm of photography...are those not the photos that spark and inspire the many minds on Deviantart? This is mainly for the portrait section of photography. Honestly, go view the photography section, then people and portraits....on the first page is there anything that inspires you? Shouldn't that be at the top of the list? There are so many talented insp
Thursday: A Day in ParadiseThanks to everyone who participated in last week's Way Back contest! I hope you enjoyed diving into deviantART's artistic history. Make sure to take advantage of that Premium Member only feature from time to time.Thursday: A Day in Paradise3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This week, we're having an art creation contest! While we enjoy having different types of contests, it's always fun to have a good, old-fashioned art contest.
The theme for our art contest will be A Day in Paradise!
What does paradise mean to you? Is it a sandy beach, relaxing with a good book? Or is it cliff diving from a tropical oasis into crystal clear water? Or perhaps paradise is on your couch, playing your favorite video games. Whatever paradise is for you, we want to see it!
And the best part? Any medium is accepted! Feel free to take a photo of your paradise, depict it in a traditional piece, write a story about a trip to your own oasis -- it's up to you!
Submit your entries to the <a href="http://premiummembers.deviantart.com/gallery/35853770">
CONTEST: Remember Me! (please fave this article!)Hello everyone!CONTEST: Remember Me! (please fave this article!)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As you probably just read, the PortraitClub :iconportraitclub: will be holding a contest! We have some fabulous prizes to win: features, points , and even some premium subscriptions ! For those of you interested please read on further for the contest's theme!
The theme for this contest will be "Remember Me". We leave it up to you, the artists, to decide what this phrase means to you! There are several different approaches you can take, but if you're stuck, here are a couple ideas you might consider:
-A portrait so outrageous or bizarre it cannot be forgotten
-A sentimental portrait of someone you'd like to be remembered
Now remeber, as we are the Portrait Club, the entries must be portraits! However, you can submit portraits of any medium (except literature)! Whether you're a photographer, a traditional artist, or a digital artist, we welcome you to submit to our contest! Please read on though for the rules!

dArp: Myths, legendsNo matter if you believe in supernatural beings or not, myths and legends of all kinds do fascinate and affect our life all the time. Be it as a child when we listen to stories, be it as an adult when watching movies or reading books.dArp: Myths, legends1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
There are endless stories about such supernatural beings. Some are rather famous, some totally unknown. Todays dArp shows you just a few artworks dedicated to those. It's up to you, to show us more! And maybe share your favourite myth/legend with us as well.

PAIN and A LYRICAL Feature!I wish I could find out what the heck is wrong with me! I've been to the doctor recently because of this pain I've had in my leg and it just grows steadily worse over a few days until I take anti-inflammatory pain killers and then the process just starts over and it gets bad again. SO ANNOYING. It doesn't matter what position I'm in, it just is not going away and tonight I can't sleep because of it.PAIN and A LYRICAL Feature!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

feature for drawing
Drawing is a form of visual art that makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium. Common instruments include graphite pencils, pen and ink, inked brushes, wax color pencils, crayons, charcoal, chalk, pastels, markers, styluses, and various metals (such as silverpoint). An artist who practices or works in drawing may be called a draughtsman or draftsman.
A small amount of material is released onto the two dimensional medium, leaving a visible mark. The most common support for drawing is paper, although other materials, such as cardboard, plastic, leather, canvas, and board, may be used. Temporary drawings may be made on a blackboard or whiteboard or indeed almost anything. The medium has been a popular and fundamental means of public expression throughout human history. The relatively easy availability of basic drawing instruments makes drawing more universal than most other media.

14. + 15. FeatureHey everybody,14. + 15. Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
some of you might noticed that I didn't do a feature last week. I was so damn busy with university stuff and moving into my new apartment and it was also a 2-hour drive to get there. I still have no internet connection there and frankly, having no internet was REALLY tough, since everything is mostly online now... It also sucks that I haven't been doing photography for a while now. It's like my camera and I have become strangers.
However, I'm at my parents' house now. That means I have internet.
So here's a double feature.
P.S. Did I mention that I finally got my driving license?

Hi guys! Time for another feature, but first I'm sure you guys have heard about The Review Project over at LitLoveCommunity by now. The task is to post 'reviews' of a writer or of a writers body of work on their deviantart page (or, if they have a book on Amazon you can post it there, just let me know their DA name when you send me the link). Well I have started my quest and I am going to share my reviews here so that you can see and maybe get some more people involved :>
Elizabeth's work displays a beautiful modernicity; she can take two contrasting ideas and combine them to make something fresh and innovative. She knows how to make language new again and her work is always exciting and inventive.
Melissa's portfolio of work is a revelation, unlike anything else I've read before. With hints of Hemingway, Cummings, Smith and something uniquely new Melissa delivers time after time something original and haunti
