"Look up, the stars are fading
And I am still here waiting
To see you again
Be with you my friend

When the moon is gone forever
I hope you're up there somewhere
I'll see you again
Be with you my friend

'Cause all the roads they lead to where you are
And all the streetlights shine like they were stars
That's where you are

Let's spend tonight on top of the world
And we can do anything,
We can be anything
I'll meet you tonight on top of the world
As real as it seems,
You're only in my dreams

Look out across the water
Faces of lonely daughters and mothers who care
But just can't be there
Swear that I will see you someday
I have to find a way
To show you I care
Even if you're not there

So I'm following the road to where you are
(Meet you tonight on top of)
The streetlights they will guide me to the stars
That's where you are

Let's spend tonight on top of the world
And we can do anything,
We can be anything
I'll meet you tonight on top of the world
As real as it seems,
You're only in my dreams

My heart is empty without you
Sometimes you don't know what you do
And I need you tonight
I'll fall asleep and it's alright
Close my eyes and I'll be by your side

Let's spend tonight on top of the world
And we can do anything,
We can be anything
I'll meet you tonight on top of the world
As real as it seems,
You're only in my dreams

Let's spend tonight on top of the world
(On top of the world)
As real as it seems,
You're only in my dreams"

Hey all,

Another quick speed painting. This one depicting a small world/sphere tethered onto a larger world as it is being built. Who knows... I just wanted to paint something. :)

Took me about 35-40 mins or so.

There is a poem started for this, but having to touch on the concepts of Fire Water and Asia, it's hard work - and I'm not really a poet.

If there is desire, I'll finish it.  Otherwise, enjoy the graphic.

I did this in this version, a beautiful "red night" version and a darkly foreboding caustic yellow sky and sea version which had serious emotional impact - but settled on this one.

Go with me on a journey into the Hyper conscience to discover you true nature through The reality consortium.
This is an intellectual technique which I have already explained in the past.
It is done entirely within Bryce. Any version will work.
I did post-process the colors a bit in Paint Shop Pro.
This is a pseudo-random mapping technique.
It consists of a radial light (with a gel) and a large bumped sphere.

Enjoy!

Luke 22:47-53
47. While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him,
48. but Jesus asked him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49. When Jesus' followers saw what was going to happen, they said, "Lord, should we strike with our swords?"
50. And one of them struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.
51. But Jesus answered, "No more of this!" And he touched the man's ear and healed him.
52. Then Jesus said to the chief priests, the officers of the temple guard, and the elders, who had come for him, "Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come with swords and clubs?
53. Every day I was with you in the temple courts, and you did not lay a hand on me. But this is your hour--when darkness reigns."

John 18:1-13
1. When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and he and his disciples went into it.
2. Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
3. So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.
4. Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5. "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6. When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.
7. Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8. "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go."
9. This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me."
10. Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)
11. Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"

12. Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13. and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.

All painted from scratch in Photoshop CS5. These initial concepts consist of thumbs and more refined images. Each idea took between 10 mins and a few hours to do, depending on revisions and perspective accuracy. I did these images some months ago.

I'm always impressed with those pictures of abandoned cars people post (ones standing in woods, near lakes, etc.)

Since I live in Switzerland, it's pretty much impossible to find an abandoned car... (we're a very, very tidy people ;-))

I found this one in front of a museum (yes, it's not exactly abandoned, it's a piece of art ...)

WELCOME


Hi there and welcome to the first installment of Home of the ARTist, the e-mag of Daily-Deviations .


First of all, I, as the Founder of Daily-Deviations want to apologize for several things.

I am sorry that this is published so extremely late. And I am also sorry that this is not as beautiful as it was supposed to be.


I hope you´ll be able to forgive us if you keep in mind that this was the baby of our former founder Jonathan. He left us, though, because he had to face some serious problems in real life and we can understand that he couldn´t finish this project anymore, and even though I am feeling sorry that I was not able to make it as good as he wanted it to be at the beginning I still hope you´ll have fun with our e-mag.
Greetings, CaryM



Anyway, here´s the e-mag now filled full of features from some talented artists that we know you'll enjoy.

Some of you may be wondering how we came up with the idea to create an E-mag. Well there are several reasons, but we'll give you a few. We wanted our fantastic group to expand. This allows us to put out more content and celebrate even more fantastic artists who may not have a lot of exposure. In addition, we can now feature individual artists. Finally, we did it for you! We wanted to entertain our members with more features, great art, stories, comics and more.

Before we get started, we want to remind you that if you want to be part of our E-mag, you can find instructions on how to contribute. [ daily-deviations.deviantart.co… ] AND you can feature your work on the homepage of Daily-Deviations for just 10 points per day. [ daily-deviations.deviantart.co… ]

We hope you enjoy what we have to offer and continue your viewing and support.


DEVIANT OF THE MONTH


We start this installment off with a bang by presenting our Deviations of the Month for the months of July and August. These pieces were first recognized by the staff of Daily-Deviations, and then member voted as the best pieces of their month.
A big congratulations to chrigi76 - chrigi76.deviantart.com/ … his amazing piece The Sunken Village chrigi76.deviantart.com/art/Th… which won DotM in July

The Sunken Village by ChristianGerth

A huge majority of 89 deviants thought this piece was the best of the nominated deviations and such a deserved winner. And just to show how successful the piece is chrigi76 has had TWO 5 star critiques, over 2700 faves and over 92000 views! AND its popularity continues to grow.
And also a round of hands to lady-symphonia - lady-symphonia.deviantart.com/ for their outstanding work entitled Elixir of Life - lady-symphonia.deviantart.com/… which won DotM for August.

Elixir of Life by Lady-Symphonia
Also another member favorite, win the polls by a land slide. This piece has been featured in 35 groups and gained:  276 comments 2,604 favourites and over 16k view views.

Remember to keep voting in our deviation of the month polls so more DD's can be given to our groups members.

Other deviations of the month:

FEATURES


Now the meat and potatoes (or for our veggie friendly supporters, the carrots and tofu?) of our first installment of Home of the ARTist, we welcome you to read about some of the featured artist and writers this month.


JKingstone


Our first feature goes to Jessica Kingstone. Some of you may know her as JKingstone around DeviantArt and some of you may not know here at all. Regardless where you fall on your acquaintance with Ms. Kingstone you're in for a treat.

Background


"I'm a traditional pen and ink illustrator, with my main area of illustration being in fantasy art or fairytale art. I love taking everyday scenes and hiding fairies, ogres, imps and other folklore in between the people going about their everyday lives, as well as inventing entire new worlds and creatures. However, I also enjoy doing portraiture and a lot of graphite work. I am a writer also, and all of my stories are illustrated by myself as and when they develop." – Jessica Kingstone


A sample of Ms. Kingstone's gallery

  [ jkingstone.deviantart.com/art/… jkingstone.deviantart.com/art/… jkingstone.deviantart.com/art/… jkingstone.deviantart.com/art/…

Be sure to check out Jessica's profile page on Deviant Art where you can find her gallery which features more works. [ jkingstone.deviantart.com/ ]


Interview with JKinstone



Home of the ARTist: Why did you join DeviantArt?

Jessica Kingstone:  I joined deviantART mainly because I wanted to share my artwork with others and be inspired by other artists. I originally started on Fanart-Central, but I wanted to have a broader view of art, not just fanart, so I came here instead. 

HotA:  How long have you been an artist and what inspired you?

J K: I've been a dedicated artist since 2005, though I guess you could say that I've been an artist all my life. My biggest inspirations throughout my life have been my mum, *SapphireIllusions and my best friend ~NightJinx but I also get inspired heavily by music, nature and other artists like Brian Froud, Alan Lee, Imperial Boy and Kris Kuksi.

HotA: Your work is unusual and original where do you get the ideas from?

J K: Most of my ideas form from zoning out while listening to music. Whether it's just one line in a song or an entire symphony that I'm listening to, it usually comes from there.

However, if I'm doing commissions for people, sometimes this works, other times the ideas just pop out as I'm doodling the sketches. I try as far as I can to really put myself into the world I'm trying to draw and I look at it from all angles so I can get a 360 view of what's going on. Sometimes that in itself creates an entire world just from one scene!

HotA: You use an incredible amount of detail, how long do your pieces take and are you happy with them once you have finished?

J K: My pieces can take anything from 2 weeks to 6 months to do depending on what size it is and what it entails. Things like the Lackadaisy Masquerade piece ( jkingstone.deviantart.com/art/… ) took nearly a month to do, whereas the Breakfast is Served Commission ( jkingstone.deviantart.com/art/… ) took nearly three months, so it really does depend on the detail levels.

With regards to whether I'm happy with them, it's become a usual thing for me to have to do things twice. I'll be working on something, realize it's really not going right at all and then I'll bin it. When I start working on the second one though, I'll still not be satisfied with how it's going, but I generally learn from the first one what mistakes not to make it again! I'm never happy with my work once it's finished because I look at it and think, "man I could have done that bit so much better." By which time it's a bit late,   but that's what helps me learn and develop because I never rest on my laurels, I'll always strive to make the next piece better than the last.

HotA: What is your next piece going to be and do you think you can achieve a DD with it?

J K: Well my next piece is another commission for *windyautumnmoon which features a carrion crow and his nest. Only, this is no ordinary nest. Built in the rafters of his companion's house, an entire community has grown! Comprised of rather intelligent little mice, they are employed by Paw the Crow to keep all of his jewels, trinkets and anything else that he has pinched in tip top shape, and of course to stop them from being stolen from Paw.

It will be an A3 (29.7cm x 42cm) full colour piece, with (hopefully) more detail than ever before! There are multiple plains of perspective to play with in it, and many hidden things for everyone to try to find.

Whether or not I'd get a DD for it is another matter since I'm such a hard critic of my work, so it's up to all you guys on that front I guess  

HotA: What advice do you have for other traditional artists?

J K:  Never work on your original lineart. I always used to live by this rule in the fact that I would always scan the original lineart, and then print it off on my high quality paper very faintly, and then work on top of that so that if I did mess it up or whatever, I didn't have to redraw the entire thing. When I started working on A2 scale (42cm x 59.7cm), I would work on board which meant I couldn't print onto that, I could only trace which, in itself, is a majorly laborious process that just took all the fun out of everything.

So, the biggest advice I'd have is never work on your original artwork  




Alec4U


Alec Maynard, better known as Alec4U, has been on Deviant Art for a short while, but opinions about his talent should not be diminished by this fact. He has already been featured by one of the primer literature groups of DA, DailyLitDeviations (DLD). Without further adieu, we give the spotlight to Mr. Maynard as he tells us a bit about himself. To view and read more works by Mr. Maynard, do stop by his Deviant Art profile page and check out his gallery. [ alec4u.deviantart.com/ ]

Background


Hello, my name is Alec Maynard and you have entered the depraved depths of my imagination, the metaphoric Iron Earth where I dwell. Inside this war torn, festering, wasteland exist a hope. A slither of fluorescent creativity that mutates itself into short stories, scripts, poems and a myriad of ideas yet to be channeled into legible prose.

When I write fantasy or sci-fi, I like to inject drama, dark humour, and horror to create a realistic and harsh environment, which not only forces the characters to suffer their hyperbolic fantasy trials, but also deal with some of the same, interesting, crap we have to put up with in our lives. Surely contracting a disease, being dumped or repressing closeted homosexuality will not be a problem for a real hero when compared to that hydra he butchered last week?

Perhaps, on a whim, you care to indulge in the horrors and complexities of the human condition. The base fears, insecurities, and dilemmas of the human psyche that torment us all; from the most heinous criminals to the sweetest old ladies. If so, then my horrors or poetry are the material for you.

If any of these areas interest you, and you are not afraid to read stories and poetry that indulges in the challenging, the disturbed and the human condition then visit my DeviantArt page and enjoy. >=3

Samples


Below are sampled of Mr. Maynard's work that has garner both praise and a small following throughout Deviant Art. To give you an idea of each story, we've give to you but a preview of the full versions. To continue reading please follow the link at the beginning of each preview.
RAVENS ROOM

I sit alone in the room – the watch on my wrist ticks in the background – I am the only living presence yet I am not alone. The lingering silence alters my hearing and elevates my awareness – not to perfection – enough to pick up the finest of acute sounds, even those that are seemingly not there. A single candle sits opposite me upon my desk. It has been burning for quite some time and seeps upon itself in a depraved dissolution with its once perfect waxy form warped and excreted down its sides. I make up my mind and hastily grab a pen and parchment to begin a letter to my friend; it is of the utmost importance. My body twitches at the sound of looming voices that resonate beyond the safety of my bedroom door. They speak in noiseless whispers that beckon me from my roost and attempt to coerce me away from a fate that I am most deserving of.

BATTLE OF HOLT

Battle For Holt
Battle for Holt
----------------
Alec Maynard
The forest spirit, Oxylos, padded gently through his domain. Emerald shrubs and flowers blossomed beneath each footstep. He ambled along the track until he reached a smooth flat rock that offered him a platform to survey the mountain below. Scattered amongst the wooded mountain face, beside the region's only river, was the fledgling town of Holt. Primitive humans lived there residing in huts on the trees. Oxylos puffed out his chest with pride. He had raised them from mere apes, and they now were able to feed themselves and live in independence under his protection.
He leapt from his podium and galloped down the slope. Hind legs stretching out behind him as he left the ground, front legs digging into the dirt as he returned. In seconds he was among them. They left their miniature homes and bowed before him. He glowed from their faith. Oxylos collapsed onto his belly, and rested amid the men and women of Holt. Children clambered over his gia


This is just a preview of the full version:
At the riverbank, Oxylos rolled onto his side then let the women climb down and clamber onto one of the rafts which floated to the centre of the vast river for safety. The villagers waved and cheered their protector. He smiled at their warmth but didn't realise until it was too late, that they weren't cheering him but attempting to warn him. A giant set of teeth clamped down on his neck cleaving his weakened skin. Pyros thrashed his head left and right letting his serrated teeth sink deeply into Oxylos's neck, severing the spirit's major artery. Warm blood flooded Pyros's mouth and drenched the sand below. Pyros stared coldly into Oxylos's eyes, he watched as they twitched in panic and then the black of death smothered them. The creature's eyes rolled up inside his head and his heart stopped. Pyros's insides fluttered with joy as he let go of the forest spirits neck and watched him collapse. The humans sat horrified as Pyros gorged on Oxylos's flesh to the backdrop of the forest consumed in flames.

Being a farmer's daughter would have meant a life of hard work but self sustenance would almost certainly be guaranteed. However, being a farmer's daughter whose father had abandoned her and her mother meant a life of poverty. Mother was hard working and strong willed but even her resolve couldn't bring us enough money to live a comfortable lifestyle. One day tax was due but we hadn't the money to pay, so mother brought me the last cow and told me to take it to market. I reluctantly agreed. The farm lay in a small field surrounded by a seemingly never ending montage of trees, so tightly packed that sunlight failed to break through the expanding shield of emerald greens and Vandyke browns. The path I trod pierced the hallows of the dark woods like a knife through butter. Small animals rustled in the bushes and birds chirped soulful serenades in the background. Over all the years I had made the journey from the farm cottage to the market, the mys


This is just a preview of the full version:
"I am" he paused, "Well I am more of an artist myself than an observer, most of the paintings in my palace are of my hand. In fact I have a painting in the works as we speak but it is lacking a model for the foreground. If you were to model for me you may take the bag of gold"

At first I felt hesitant but my family's needs were far too great. I nodded my head in acceptance and moved towards a chair opposite the bed that lay positioned behind an easel that held a canvas. He took his position in front of the easel and took out an assortment of paints and brushes as I sat down on the chair.

"No! No!" he shouted making me jump to my feet, "You have to stand behind the chair, then you need to strip down to your bare skin"

"But I, I can't…," I cried out helplessly.

"In art nude models are in keeping with nature, whoever heard of clothed figures" he chuckled, "Anyway where's the fun in painting a clothed model, especially one as…as precious as yourself.", He was staring straight at me, I couldn't hold his gaze. I just bit my lip and began to undo my red, laced dress. I felt the loss of its presence more than ever as it fell from my pert bosom. A dark smile appeared on his face and his gaze moved down from my eyes as my dress fell to the floor. I blushed and clung to myself trying desperately to preserve my dignity. I felt shamed, embarrassed and cold as he began to paint onto his canvas.



SapphireIllusions


SapphireIllusions has been a member of Deviant Art for 2 years and has been gracing members with her heraldic, traditional and cultural works of art. Give a warm welcome, as SapphireIllusions gives us a bit of background about her life and work.

Background


I've been interested in art and heraldry, in particular, since I was in my teens, and after drifting in and out of various attempts at careers, including motherhood (which was the one I actually managed to stick at for longer than 2 years!), I finally took the plunge and became a full time artist.

My main source of work comes from the RAF Heraldry Trust [ www.deviantart.com/users/outgo… ] for whom I am recording all of the heraldry assigned to units of the Royal Air Force, a project which began in 1996. The project is being funded by sponsorships, so if anyone would be interested, they can find all the details on the website.
Although I have always been a traditional artist working with paper, pencils and paint, I discovered the joys of Photoshop a couple of years ago and in terms of being able to render certain effects in fantasy art and the heraldry, it's been a very exciting development for me!

Below is a sample of SapphireIllusion's work which she points out "all of which have some form of heraldic reference."

primalfuryan


Our last feature for this installment is primalfuryan. He's only been at Deviant Art for 9 months, but his work has also been praised by a number of respectable groups. One member described his work as, "the colors take up a life of their own, simply its emotionally infused." With a description like that, it's a wonder how he's come close to 40K pageviews in a relatively short time span.

Interview with primalfuryan



Home of the ARTist:  Why (or what) made you start your art?

Primalfuryan: Hmmm let me see ..well my Mother inspired me and she used to make flowers on the paper for my schoolwork she used to give me brushes and pencils to color those flowers and I loved to color those flowers and my Mother always appreciated me and she always had a serene smile on Her face so that made me entangled into art verse

HotA: Are you professional or is it just a side hobby?

Prima: Paint colors talk to me. It is not profession my art is my friend when I am angry or frustrated or want to express any emotion I make the art these colors tell me that they are with me in every part of my life.

HotA: What types of art do you prefer?

Prima: I prefer painting, drawing digital and traditional both I am also a amateur photographer and calligrapher also work with artisan crafts so I believe artist should not have boundaries should be wild open to every field of life the reason I love painting is I love to play with colors it is Excalibur feeling.

HotA: Who is your favorite artist?

Prima: There are many but a few are Pablo Picasso ,Salvador Dali ,Leonardo da Vinci ,Van Gogh ,Zeng Fanzhi ,Damien Hirst ,Gulge, etc.

HotA: What are all the tools you use for your art?

Prima: EVERYTHING! Either it's a leaf from the road or the palette knife or the brushes or the pencils markers as I also make artisan crafts so anything that is necessary to give the proper effect is my tool for the art.


HotA: How long does it take you to finish a piece?

Prima: Depends on the conditions sometime it takes a year sometime just 1 day it depends on my variable moods or the life scenario but until i complete the painting it is in my mind like (I have to complete it soon lol).

HotA: When did you start your art?

Prima: I started my artwork in the childhood I am just a normal artist just like Isaac Newton says that I am standing at a sand beach playing with knowledge stones there is a whole lot of ocean of knowledge in front of me so I am still learning.

HotA:  Were you self taught on your own or did you take class or go to some kind of school?

Prima: Yes self taught animal instincts have learnt everything on my own..

HotA: Was their ever a point that you were not satisfied with your art?

Prima: Many times I want to still add some more depth into the art I keep growing but I am mostly contented with myself that I created something good in the end.

HotA: What do you think is the secret to mastering art?

Prima: Secret is look closely to the thing or phenomenon in every shape and dimensions give it time and colors will start revealing themselves then again practice the strokes every artist have their strokes take it slow keep working on your art and keep learning.

HotA: What words of wisdom would you give to a beginner that inspires to you and your art style?
Prima: Don't be in a hurry work on your art complete it the way you want to create something extraordinary don't forget the basic structure of art is to enjoy it so enjoy working and playing with digital or traditional paints.

HotA: Please tell us a little bit about you?
Prima: About myself well I love to hear make change music. I am a DJ with RJ as well. I love many music forms, same goes with art. Anything made from heart is beautiful art; either it is painting or digital manipulation or a simple photograph of a flower. Anything from heart reaches hearts, so I always put my soul into the art so it creates smiles on people faces or just a thought or a minute emotion that is all.

Now you too, take care, stay safe and stay happy. Have a very, very pleasant day my dearest friend JJ. (HUGS)

My first entry for the 21st :iconmandelbulb3dteasers: challenge set by last months winner :iconrecycledrelatives:

Here I used Quintic with julia on.. 
see the challenge rules here ----  21st Mandelbulb3D Teaser!These are the rules for the 21st Mandelbulb3d Teaser :iconmandelbulb3dteasers:

Glenda :iconrecycledrelatives: recycledrelatives was the 20th teaser winner and here is her message and rules for this month:
++++++++++++++++++
I'd like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who voted for either of my entries. It is such a thrill for me to win one of these Teasers! :heart:
For the 21st Teaser, let's start with dark-beam's list of under-utilized formulas once again. Pick either the Quintic or Ruckerbulb formula. Add no more than two extra formulas or use the formula by itself. The formulas may be used in any order. There will be three additional restrictions this time:
You cannot use both the Quintic and Ruckerbulb formulas together in the same fractal.
No volumetric lights allowed.
No reflections allowed.
I have very little experience with either of these two formulas, so I hope to see their potential in your entries. Have fun!

AHHHH! I have internet again.  We had a storm roll through a few days ago which really buggered up things around here. No electricity, and perhaps most importantly, NO INTERNET! Talk about freaking out LOL.

Fortunately we did get power back on, so even though I was stranded without the net, I did have my cell phone so I could grab the parameters from M's pong. Now, you'd think it would be easy to copy something on you smart phone, and then paste it into a .txt file so that you can then pick it up via usb connection from your smartphone's sdcard to load onto your computer. Nope. YOU NEED A FREAKING APP. At the risk of digressing too much... it was actually comical with the suuuupppperrrrrr-slllllooowwwwwww 3G crap connection watching me try to figure out how to transfer the copy buffer of my mobile phone to my notebook computer. I was not a happy woman. LOL

In any event, I did mange to figure it out, eventually (I am not totally brain damaged you know) and so was able to at least render up some fractals whilst waiting impatiently for the cable company to fix the damn internet!

Me and shiny - yup. Give me a fractal and I'll make it shiny :)

There is an uncropped version here: UNCROPPED Bits and Pieces Pong by audre -- I like the tighter cropping. The parameters are for the 'uncropped' version :)

Also did another derivative which you can see here: Orbiting with Volumetric Light LOL by audre  a study with volumetric lighting. and there are parameters too if you wanna try it yourself.
