Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
I was fascinated this week by an article about the Photographer who survived a year only on Penguin Steaks. When I read further I was enlightened about an exhibition to the Antarctic that I had never before heard of. In 1914, Sir Shakleton along with 27 men, 69 dogs and a cat sailed from Buenos Aires to Antarctica. They wanted to be the first to cross the Antarctic Continent on foot. However their boat became trapped and they lived on the ship for 10 months. Some of the photographs captured of those moments are wonderful - timeless creations of moments when all you really have to keep yourself occupied with, is thinking and existing. To cut a long exhibition short, they spend almost two years (some of them) existing on penguins and biscuits. But the whole time they were there, Frank Hurley, a Photog

“Creativity is knowing how to hide your sources”
- Albert Einstein
I don't know about you, but Light Painting has to be really unique and awesome in order to impress me. So when I stumbled across the work of Darren Pearson aka Darren Twin - I was astounded at the creativity and simple methods used to create his conceptual photographic pieces. Darren creates LED pictures of Skeletons Skateboarding, dancing and living - exploring what the Mail Online has termed as the bare bones of our daily lives. And it really is precisely that. Darren takes the ordinary, the mundane and the normal of everyday life and lights it up by night by painting bones. Check it out for yourself. That prompted me to go searching for some of my favourite light painted pieces here
Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing AutumnFor many Photographers, Autumn is now officially here and is one of the most exciting seasons to capture in terms of colour, change and vistas. Early morning mist, late afternoon sun, orange, red and golden hues - Autumn has a lot to offer in many countries. If you're like me, Autumn often arrives all at once and it can be tricky to know how to make the best of the season before it's over. A couple of days of high winds and rain can ruin the best Autumnal captures by ripping the leaves down before you've even got the chance to snap - so it's great to be prepared for the season.Photography Troubleshooting: Capturing Autumn in Deviant Events More Like This
Leading lines are particularly useful. Yet so many people quote ' Look for leading lines...' or 'You've captured the leading lines here perfectly' and really do we even know properly what they are? The purpose of a leading line is to draw a viewers eye into the photograph and then on a journey - through it. Think of it as a visual narrative. They can be intentional and ind
Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with MistGetting the camera out, and the scarf, hat and gloves, and heading into a misty morning or hazy evening can result in the best kind of photographs. Atmospheric, moody and ultimately a fine example of whatever current season you're in - these kinds of shots present themselves at awkward moments so it's vitally important to be prepared. In previous years I've got up at the crack of dawn and ventured out with all the excitement of a young child on their first day of school - only to come home with a grazed knee and broken felt tip pens. Or rather, washed out, blurred and altogether rubbish photographs.Photography Troubleshooting: How to work with Mist in Art Features More Like This
Fog is a popular mist - we often get confused and just term it all as fog or all as mist. It's not quite like that. It's all about the visibility, if we can see less than 1km through it then it's fog. If we can see between 1 - 2 km then it's mist. So when is the best time to catch these ground level clouds at their best? Fo

Hello! Tell me who you are and what your craft is!
Hi! I'm Logan Pearce and I am a bladesmith/swordsmith. I focus on spreading knowledge about the art of forging and making knives.
How did you get into it and how long have you been doing it?
It's a tradition and business that has been passed down through generations in my family. My grandfather started it and I was raised by him. His form of babysitting was handing me a hammer. >.< I first started selling knives when I was 7 years old and that is when I consider my career started. So technically I've been doing it for 20 years. It was only in the last few years that I really started trying to improve my work and make knives that are more popular in the knife community. Because of this, I've had to basically teach myself a whole new way of doing things and many people c

Hello! Tell me who you are and what your craft is!
I am Cheryl and I craft everything! My main ones are crocheting and cosmetics.
How did you get into it and how long have you been doing it?
I started doing cosmetics in 2002 I used to work for a cosmetic company in bournemouth called bomb cosmetics. I restarted again once I qualified as a complementary therapist about 3 years ago. I use my knowledge of aromatherapy to make unique soaps, lipbalms and other toiletries. I started crocheting last October and I learnt through youtube videos.
What difficulties have you found as you progress?
With cosmetics I had to shelf it temporarily due to becoming pregnant. Many of my essential oils are not safe to use! Also I found alot of trial and error in regards to using colours. I tried out many types and found certain ones worked better

Hello! Have you always been a crafty person? Or has this passion taken you later on in life?
Hello! I can assure I've always loved crafts. I think it's because I've always loved toys ( or in general three-dimensional figures) and when I was a child I was very demanding with my toys. I was never completely satisfied with the quality of mass produced ones so I would have liked to design my own. It's for this reason I entered the world of crafts. I started sewing little simple plushies and sculpting little figures out of plasticine, but I hadn't the appropriate materials so I couldn't made anything seriously. This was a bit frustrating so I left it for a while.
I returned to this passion last year, when I

PE - Furcadia Ports and Stamps: CategorizationSometimes the category system here on dA can get a little confusing. For example; you created a piece using pixeling techniques but you intend to use it as an icon. Where do you categorize it? A lot of people just are not sure. So this article should help to clear it up.PE - Furcadia Ports and Stamps: Categorization in Personal More Like This
When it comes to categorization, intended use can be a huge factor. In this case, Furcadia portraits would belong in the Icons and Handhelds gallery instead of Pixel Art or Anthro, because while it may have been created pixel by pixel and the subject is anthro, it was created for use as a portrait (often shortened to port), with specific size parameters and place of display kept in mind. By putting them in Icons, ports are easy to find and media doesn't separate them; some ports are not done in a pixel by pixel manner but as they are similar in theme and intended use, they should be seen in the same area. As this is not the first time this has been discussed, I feel the need to

Over the past few months, we've been diligently working on cleaning up the category tree of old and unused categories. While most of this will go unnoticed by the community, what you will notice is the change from "Miscellaneous" galleries to "Other". The reason for this change is simple. The concept of Miscellaneous leads one to believe that it's a junk drawer category for everything under the sun when the intention was to be an "Other" category for deviations that don't fit well in other sub-categories of the tree. We're also working on u

Goodbye 2012 - Big FeatureOne more year is almost over....Goodbye 2012 - Big Feature in Art Features More Like This
For me it was a pretty normal year, neither really good nor really bad. But in regard to Photography it was a great year for me.
I got my first DSLR Camera and i even earned some money with my photos. I love taking photos and i hope that this will stay the same next year.
Within this year i got over 1800 watchers and that really means a lot to me. Thank you so much ! ♥
For now i have some amazing photos from 2012 for you, i am sorry that the Feature got so long, but there where so many amazing photos that i just couldn't stop.

Watchers Feature II. ( Part 1.)Hey everyone :iconslipperyhugplz:Watchers Feature II. ( Part 1.) in Personal More Like This
I have reached 1000 watchers and as a small thank you i am going to do my second watchers Feature !
You really don't know how much your support means to me. I am a person that feels insecure easily and i am unsure of a lot of things, including my photos. I love taking photos but i never expected so many people to like them. Don't get me wrong, i don't take photos for others but for myself. For me walking with my dog, holding my camera in my hands, with no one else around, is a wonderful experience. But nevertheless i appreciate every single watch, comment, fave and view i recieve. It makes me unbelieveable happy ! Even if i don't have much time i try to come online at least once a day to read your comments and they always cheer me up ! I know that it takes me a lot of time to answer them and i am really sorry about that ! But all in all i just want to say that i love you all and that i am really grateful

Merry Christmas everybody !
And if you don't celebrate Christmas i wish you wonderful holidays.
The weeks before the winter holidays were really stressful for me. As some of you already know i had my practical driving test and i failed. It was a shock for me when the examiner told me to drive back to my driving school immediately. But there wasn't much i could do about it so i tried it again two weeks later and i passed You really don't know how nervous i was, my knees where shaking a lot while i was parking the car. But right now i am just happy that it is over. And i don't have to do anything for school these holidays So i will try to take a lot of photos ! Holidays are always my creative time
Since my mother is working today i will celebrate christmas

As a final close-out to our Project Educate: Feedback Week, we have one more special treat!
You've critiqued like crazy, and you received some great critiques as well! Awesome job!! But what good are critiques if you don't ever use them?

Planetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition!Mythology of the PlanetsPlanetary Mythology Photomanipulation Competition! in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to the latest "dark" photomanipulation contest, supported by Community Relations here on deviantART. This contest will challenge you to think outside of the box, for you will have to not only create something, but you will need to do a bit of research and think about why you are creating it. Are you ready for a competition that is out of this world?
Before we go any further, let me clarify that PLUTO COUNTS!
What do I have to do?
Choose one of the planets (or Pluto) in our solar system, listed below. Moons or suns can be a part of the larger picture, but they do not count as your god/goddess.
Your job is to create a PHOTOMANIPULATION in which you show a myth around a planetary ruler (that is, the god or goddess after which the planets were named).
The gods/goddesses can be Greek, Roman, or other.... but they must be planetary rulers.
Photomanipulation Contest: Rebirth and RenewalWelcome to the latest community competition for Photomanipulation!Photomanipulation Contest: Rebirth and Renewal in Deviant Events More Like This
This is the official kick-off blog for the latest, greatest EXTREME PHOTOMANIPULATION CONTEST here on dA! The contest is backed by communityrelations with HUGE prizes and hosted by CRPhotomanipulation. This journal describes the rules for the contest. Please read it carefully.
What we mean by "Extreme" photomanipulation
You should reach beyond your comfort zone and create a deviation that is bold, unique, and better than you thought you could create. Try something new. Break the mold. You've got this!
We have HUGE prizes. So, we are expecting HUGE results.
Theme: Rebirth and Renewal
Our theme, Rebirth and Renewal, was suggested by administrators of CRPhotomanipulation. You are hereby challenged to create a photomanipulation that shows rebirth and/or renewal. For example, it could sh
Community Voices: What is a Daily Deviation?DDs: The deviantART definitionCommunity Voices: What is a Daily Deviation? in Deviant Events More Like This
So, as the title says, What in the world IS a Daily Deviation (DD), anyway?
You know what deviantART says about it, right? Under :faq61: it says:
A small assortment of submissions are chosen each day by a select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large.
That says nothing about a DD being a perfect specimen of art-- in fact, it doesn't even use the word "art" at all. Basically, as CVs, when we are giving a DD, we are doing so because we think the image is interesting and well-done and deserves your attention. It may be technically exquisite. It may be technically quite good but exceptionally thought-provoking. It may be exceedingly creative. It may be all of these things! Above all else, it should stand out in some way from others in that medium or gallery.
10 Things a Photomanip Newbie Should KnowHi all,10 Things a Photomanip Newbie Should Know in Deviant Events More Like This
I wanted to talk for a moment to our newbie photomanipulators or even older photomanipulators who are out of the fray. How are you? Welcome to the inner circle.
Here are some things that you (and all photomanipulators) need to know about dA and the photomanipulation community.
1. Stay in touch with the Photomanipulation CV (currently me, Aeirmid).
Watch me. No, that's not an ill-formed plea for pageviews, favorites, or watchers. Actually, I rarely even post art anymore. I am the Community Volunteer (CV) for photomanipulation, which means I regularly run contests, feature art, share news, post Daily Deviations (DDs), and do other things to support the community. It is in your best interest to watch my journal because I post every photomanipulation-related update there. This information is important to you so you can learn about upcoming events, changes in rules, new groups, and other news.
2. Watch :devcommunity

The status quo in the photomanipulation community is GO! GO! GO! We have been extremely busy with creating, supporting one another, and dreaming up contests and other fun challenges. I have been delayed in reporting our news for personal reasons, so this news article is jam-packed with goodness that you, the photomanipulation community, need to know!
Let's get started!
Calling on Community Leaders
We have a wonderful photomanipulation community here, and I'm really honored to serve you all as your Community Volunteer (CV). I have been trying to post weekly news, conduct interviews and do features, post DDs, organize Project Educate and other community challenges, host critique events, and hold contests that I hope are challenging and interesting. I absolutely love doing all of this, but I am also trying to get a Ph.D. and am going to run into trouble juggling it all in the Fall.
So, I will be asking a few of you who I know well and trust to hel

Exposed, but not overexposed.
I hope I am introducing some of you to new artists to watch and love.
And if you've loved them before, here's your chance to love them again!
These artists were carefully chosen because their work displays not only technical prowess and knowledge of the medium, but also a great deal of creativity. They are always imitated but never duplicated. They make me want to reach inside myself and be a better artist-- learn more, be more patient, try and try again. I hope you will also get inspiration from these pieces.

I am happy for you to meet FP-Digital-Art, an Italian artist who has been with us on dA for a bit more than a year. Please enjoy the interview that he was so kind to give, and don't forget to take a moment to check out his gallery!

Creative Challenge #1What is this?Creative Challenge #1 in Deviant Events More Like This
After a bit of ado, we are happy to introduce some new challenges that we hope will inspire some more creativity in our community as well as encourage ALL of us (ourselves included) to learn some new skills and expand our repertoire! For these challenges, we will require the use of one piece of stock that, while lovely and very useful, might typically be considered "overused," and one new skill or technique.
We know there are a lot of challenges out there already, but here are the goals for ours:
To address concerns of "copying" and "lack of creativity" by challenging people to think more creatively about their art,
To help members of our community learn more and expand their skills by challenging them to learn new techniques, and
To maintain the focus of our community on art, growth, and support.
Let's get started!

It has been a prevailing topic for a while now around the internet and amongst community members in respects to Digital Art and Traditional Art.Digital Art vs Traditional Art in Art Features More Like This
Digital Art: is a general term for a range of artistic works and practices that use digital technology as an essential part of the creative and/or presentation process.
Traditional Art: refers to fine arts that use the old methods for creating artwork, such as pens, brushes, clay and other tools. Although traditional arts has different techniques than digital arts, but in fact, the different forms of art are all related to each other by the same concept, which also involves digital arts.

Digital Art - Why it's such a popular mediumThe World of Digital ArtDigital Art - Why it's such a popular medium in Art Features More Like This
Stepping out of the real world and into your imagination is an experience that is both shared and held close to all of us. Most of us here express it in our own way in respects to art and the art form. As time moves forward technology progresses on, that type of expression is finding new means and mediums to be painted upon.
Digital art has exploded with the modern age and with it brilliant and fantastic artists have emerged from its rupture. So why is Digital Art so popular.
Cordyceps by jeffsimpsonkh
What makes Digital Art so appealing that most would give up traditional art to move onto something more accessible. Is it money? Is it the potential to further your own artistic ventures? Some say all and others none of the above. It's all personal preference but I am sure we can all observe how popular Digital Art has become. Not just for the artists down the street but as

While on my Holiday vacation in Grants Pass Oregon to visit my parents and grandmother I ventured into a local comic shop. It was a really nice comic shop and had quiet a selection. I was browsing one of the isles when I came across not one but two comics side by side from Anthro artists here on DA! It's pretty amazing and a humbling experience when you stumble across artists work from DeviantART out in the real world! Especially artists you've been following for years! Congrats you two on your accomplishments and sharing your talent and imagination with the rest of us!
The comics I came across are "Lackadaisy" by tracyjb and "Nordguard - Book One - Across Thin Ice" by screwbald and Tess Garman !

Let's take a quick look at what a Daily Deviation is first. You might remember this article from our last PE week A Daily Deviation is NOT an award, but a feature. If you haven't already, you might want to take a look at it! It's a great read and you can get a good foundation as to what a Daily Deviation stands for.
So, I'll be touching on the subject of "Complaints about quality declines in Daily Deviations". Why is this so important to touch on? That's a great question and I will be more than happy to answer it below as I describe some key factors that are often overlooked in the way of art vs quality.
Addressing Quality of Deviations
"A picture is worth a thousand words."
There is a lot of this going around "Daily Deviations are losing quality. They're not as beautimous as they used to be.". How about we step out of the shoes of "what is and isn't art" for just a s

Bring your Type to Life
This may sound abstract at first, but to keep the theme as open as possible, I choose a rather abstract title. There are many directions in which you can go. You could choose an anthropomorphic direction, where you breathe life into letters and give them human or other animate characteristics. Another route would be to create the letters out of living objects, such as plants or animals.
Which direction you choose, maybe even a third or fourth one, does not matter. What matters is that your letters are brought to life!
What kind of letters you bring to life, words, glyphs or sentences, is 100% up to you. This contest has a more visual approach, so you will not be judged on the creativity of the meaning you choose to give to the letters. However, don't rush it! Even one letter can appear completely different than another. Be wise with the letters, word

PostScript as a programming language has changed the work of designers 30 years ago. In short, PostScript was able to interpret any data (vector f.e.) into printable raster graphics, which require dpi settings; Type as well as graphics. This was necessary to allow the same output on any laser printer that supported PostScript, making it easy to share and exchange files without the danger of acci

Celebrating Diversity #1Welcome to this new series of Art Features! Even tho most of you are aware of the many many galleries and categories here on dA, I think most of us move in a sort of "comfort zone" between Galleries, Channels or Groups that provide us with a constant flow of new art. And sometimes we forget all the other great artforms, styles and media that are out of our "comfort zone". And today I want to step out of that warm and cuddly place and feature some awesome works from places on dA I don't usually visit!Celebrating Diversity #1 in Art Features More Like This

R and S - Font Gallery Update!!I am very happy to make an announcement today that is something that I have been eyeing suspiciously for a while and now am very relieved to see it done:R and S - Font Gallery Update!! in Deviant Events More Like This
The Resource & Stock Images > Fonts gallery has been relaunched!
Take a look at the changes here!
Now, without going into much detail, it used to be subpar. The category names were unprofessional and confusing, leading to frustrating search results and many many miscats.
Over the last month there has been a lot of work put into changing this status.
So first of all I’d like to thank Elandria and Dan-Heffer who were very much in favor of the change and supported me in my endeavours to come up with a good gallery tree, despite being no experts on the topic of fonts, but giving me an outsiders input
Naturally I have to thank Moonbeam13 as well, as she supported the idea as well and made t

A Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of TypographyA Brief History of Typography in Art Features More Like This
A little insight into the history of not only Typography, but also of written language. This article will be far from covering it all, but focuses on highlighting some of the major events and periods in the history of Typography.
From the Greek roots τύπος typos = "impression" and -γραφία -graphia = "writing".
~ 30th Century BC – 200 AD
Or "Script of Nails / Cuneiform Script" is probably the oldest form of written text. This calligraphic form of writing was carved into clay tablets.

~ 800 BC – present
This is the basic alphabet used in all Western languages. The Romans based it among others
Project Educate feat. Negative SpaceProject Educate feat. Negative SpaceProject Educate feat. Negative Space in Art Features More Like This
This feature of Typography showcases works that play with negative spac. This recurring theme in both Art and Design, challenges our mind in sometimes such a subtle manner that it is simply amazing. Using negative space for words while keeping the text readable is a trick that shows us how our minds are capable of so much more.
