Tea PaintingArtist's ToolboxMore Like This
It smells lovely and gives beautiful sepia tones and great textures - what's not to love about tea and coffee painting?
Different effects and shades can be acquired by using different kinds of tea. Black tea is the easiest to use, since it's also the easiest to make the darkest essence with it, while white tea and green tea are much harder in this manner. I prefer teabags (only for painting though), but using leafy tea can create interesting textures, if you leave the leaves on paper until the whole layer dries. You can use tea bags as stamps!
Painting with coffee is similar, although the differences in shade aren't that significant. You need to be careful with instant coffee - thick layers can get sticky and shiny even after it's dry. Ground coffee and textures go along very well, if you leave the grounds on paper, ju

A little background, I had been putting off making Infinite Spiral since high school (that’s over 10 years). I would start then stop, because I had it in my head it wasn’t good enough-like it had to be this epic, perfect narrative. That’s not how learning to tell stories works … and the longer I waited, the closer it got to “you’ll never tell this story.” I was introduced to comics through a class in grad school, where I was studying serious game design. And it hit me there, if I don’t start telling this story, I will never, ever get it out there. I have to stop worrying about being “good enough.” And I’

Fella was brought to life thanks to switched, who designed him back in April 2001 for a mascot contest.
Back then he didn't look exactly as we know him today, his figure was a lot more basic and circular and his expression wasn't as human as we're used to today. However his main features remain, his mischievous look and his colors, most probably based on the site layout's at the time

A (modern) history of dA emoticonsIntroMore Like This
As you wander around deviantART pages, there is noticeably one art medium that invades almost every element of the site. Whether it is the deviantART galleries, journals, news section, comments, forums, chatrooms, avatars or even dA profiles, it is hard to find a spot that hasn't been infiltrated by a familiar set of small, coloured, pixel circles. The art form I am talking about is of course the emoticon and throughout the past 10 or so years they have been happily adopted by deviantART and its community.
Although emoticons can often be spotted on a wide range of other instant messengers (IMs) and social media sites, deviantART has come to house a unique branch of these miniature art pieces. Whilst the majority of these alternative sites opt for simple, predominately yellow emotes with a range of basic expressions, the art community here at dA have stretched the art form far beyond its natural boundaries and developed entirely new styles of emoticons

How to Stay Inspired and Focused on Your WritingLiterature Basics WeekMore Like This
Our world is so full of noise and distraction. It’s no wonder “Walden” is a classic—Thoreau had time and quiet in which to write it! And plenty of inspiration from nature.
So how do we focus, as writers, on our craft? Even if it’s our passion, sometimes it takes a lot of effort to sit down and just write—especially if we struggle with attention or hyperactivity, whether diagnosed or not.
As someone who has studied both academic writing and reading in college and graduate school, and a veteran of National Poetry Writing Month for 7 years and National Novel Writing Month for one, I can attest that intentional writing, for fun or for a grade, is not easy to focus on, especially without a good writing environment.
So what to do? Many professional writers will tell you just one simple thing: write. James Patterson said, “The trick is making writing into a daily habit. Same time. Same place. Same hot beverage of choice.

Bosch: Lampoonist or Serious Visionary?
Creator of some of the most bizarre and frightening artwork in the history of art, scholars have long debated who exactly Hieronymus Bosch was and what was the meaning and purpose of his “over the top” grotesqueries (c. 1450—1500). His most famous work is the triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. Panel One depicts Adam & Eve in Paradise. Panel Two depicts the earthly delights: nude bodies, exotic birds, bowls of fruit. Panel Three depicts Hell’s punishments for partaking of the delights. Centuries later, scholars debated whether he was a radical religious heretic or a satir

So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

What comes to mind when you consider the history of photography?
For many of us, we think of the camera body and how it has developed from a huge, stationary box into something that we can carry around with us. As a consequence of the portability of cameras, a lot of people nowadays have them, be the cameras point-and-shoot or D-SLR.
If not the body, then perhaps we think about the traditional darkroom process of photography and how it has developed into a more digitalised process with regards to editing and post-processing.
So, bearing that all in mind, I can't help wondering how many of us think about the lens. Are lenses destined to be third in the history of photography? Certainly for this article, camera lens seemed to be a last resort, partly because the lens involves a lot of science and technicalities that not many of us fully understand and appreciate.
Therefore, I am not going to talk about the history of photography lenses in this article. If you are

Ancient Egypt was a HUGE society with a rich culture and a highly developed religion. Egypt is one of the most famous ancient cultures because of its unique funerary practices and its incredible architectural feats.

Byzantine ArtSome history…More Like This
Byzantium was the name given to the Eastern part of the Roman Empire. Known by many other names, such as Romania, it was born under the ruling of Diocletian when he divided the Roman Empire in two parts: Western and Eastern, in 286. It stretched roughly through the East of Italy, Greece and the Anatolian Peninsula – in some periods covering as far as the Northern coast of Africa and South Andalusia. It endured attacks from Barbarians, Sassanids, Persians, Arabs and Slavics until the famous falling of Constantinople in 1453.
Lasting some 1000 years more than its twin Western Roman Empire, Byzantium retained and developed the Greco Latin heritage with some aspects of its own , and always dreamt of restoring the original universality of the (whole) Roman Empire.

Art History: Greek TragedyWhat is "Tragedy"?More Like This
Tragedy is a genre most people are familiar with. Hamlet is a tragedy. Movies labelled as ‘tear jerkers’ are often tragedies. If you pare it down enough, it can be as simple as 'a story where a lot of bad things happen to the protagonist'. This would fit almost every tragedy ever written, but it's not very helpful for understanding the complexities of the genre, or what it contributes to storytelling. There are almost countless sub-genres of tragedy, and every one has specific rules and tendencies that further define it from 'tragedy' as a whole. This is a construct of ages of evolution in the genre, which started, alongside comedy, with the Greeks.

So “Islamic art” refers to the art produced since then in all Islamic countries, thus covering an extensive – and varying – land in the Middle East, Northern Africa and even Europe (Al Andalus).More Like This
During the Omeya dynasty the first distinctive elements were born and spread: mosque, horseshoe arch, minaret, mosaic and vine and shell as ornamental motifs. From then on, influences from many different neighbouring and invading cultures were incorporated (but not limited to these):
The essentialism and stylization of embellishments, iwan, mausoleums, ceramics (Sassanid)Depiction of human figure, nerved dome on a octagonal basis.

Art History Project- Omar KhayyamMore Like This
Omar Khayyam, (Lit: "Omar The Tentmaker), was born, (circa 1051), at Nishapur in Khorassan, (A region in N.W. Persia). Omar was a very inquisitive boy, in possession of a good mind, and soaked up the education afforded by his father's prosperity, ...judging by his later achievements. Omar probably learnt his father's trade and became a tent-maker for a while. Omar travelled around his country and nearby areas visiting places like Samarkand and Isfahan, (Isfahan has some of the most beautiful Temples I have ever seen!, the entrance to the Main one has tiles of the most exquisite and colourful designs unrivalled anywhere in my humble opinion...), no doubt exchanging ideas and researching with some of those he met. He died in 1131 and is buried in the Khayyam Garden at the mausoleum of Imam Zadeh Mahruq in Nishapur.
728 years later, an English linguist, Edward FitzGerald, published, (in the sa
Hieronymous BoschMore Like This
Hieronymus Bosch was a Flemish painter who was born in 1450 and buried on August 9, 1516. His birth name was Jeroen Anthoniszoon van Aken, but he changed his last name to Bosch after the last syllable of this birthplace, ‘s Hertogenbosch. He came from a family of artists; his father, uncle, and grandfather were all painters. However, Hieronymus Bosch was much more than a mere Renaissance artist with an interesting background – he was a master of using a brush to spread paint across a canvas.
Over his lifetime, Bosch, who had many imitators, created only 25 to 30 paintings definitively, and signed merely seven of these. His patrons are unknown. However, King Philip II of Spain collected some of his best work, such as “The Garden of Earthly Delights.” This painting (above; second image is the inside) has many facet

Prompt 8: Story-telling and the Power of ThreeDEADLINE EXTENDED TO JULY 9THMore Like This
(come on guys, you and I both need to get this done.)
And you thought #HammeredPoetry was dead...
Story Telling and the Power of Three
I know I've said it before, but I think there should be more poems that tell stories out there. I'm thinking lots of decent concrete imagery, a plot to invest in, a couple of characters, and some kind of resolution. The key to telling a story in poem form is sparsity. If you thought you had to pick your words carefully in prose, you have to be minutely precise on a poem. Each one counts. And you still need to think about the sonic elements: metre, alliteration, assonance....
I want poems worthy of Medieval bards and Anglo-Saxon scops. I want adventure and heroism, maybe a run-in with the gods, or a doomed romance, or a trip to the underworld. Something epic, in the classical sense of the word.
I also want to see the Power of Three.
Three, as they quite rightly say, is th

The prizes have been split at random, with each completer being assigned a number and using a random number generator to match each prize. The only restriction

I'm not raspil...nor am I trying to be, given that raspil does a solid job of being raspil herself. But I think dA needs something like ScreamPrompts to kick everyone's ass up a notch, hence this group.More Like This
Read more about what's happening with ScreamPrompts here.
The first prompt will be up December 1. I want to make sure everyone has a chance to write for Scream before the end of the year, as raspil is planning to put an anthology together and, on top of the awesome you're already guaranteed to be a part of, the proceeds will be going to charity.
How is SadPrompts going to work?
I'm not a genius at prompts, so I welcome feedback on what type of challenges you'd like to see. Of course, if your complaint is "I struggled with this," I reserve the right to snicker in your general direction. That's the point. Now, if your complaint is "this is too easy," I'm all ears.
The prompts will be written for short prose (500-5,000 words).

Pastel Paper Questions and Live Drawing EventSo, a feature for the pastel artists out there!More Like This
And now a question for the pastel artists:
So, I've been looking around to buying decent coloured and slightly textured pastel paper. So far I haven't found any I liked yet. So far I've tried Reeves (the lined texture in it is absolutely awful) and I've tried Canson Mi-Teintes (I find the texture has too many holes that show through for my liking). I'd like paper that has something for the pastels to grip to but I can do detail with. Any suggestions of brands and where to buy them?
Should I try watercolour paper?
Also, I'm going to be participating in a live drawing event for 5 hours
This Hut - Everyday Vignette #8More Like This
My mother lives in this hut. Her mother lived in this hut. All their mothers before them lived in this hut, too. I lived in this hut when I was a little girl, and my mother always told me that I couldn't live anywhere else. She said this hut was my only safe home.
Each time she said it, my hatred for this hut grew. When I was eighteen, I left for college and swore that I would never set foot in this hut again. My mother warned me that I would regret leaving. I laughed at her, and then walked out.
For years I lived in the city, never speaking to my mother, never thinking of this hut. I had a boyfriend. I had a job. I had a good life.
But then something happened. There was screaming. Blood. I didn't understand it. I was afraid, so I ran away.
I came back to this hut. I didn't know where else to go. My mother was still here. She told me I had Awakened. She explained everything.
I have to live in this hut so I don't hurt anyone else.
This hut is my only safe home.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
4 happy years.
2. What does your username mean?
My first username was CyjanekPotasu, which meant potassium cyanide. But not due to murderous tendencies or love for chemistry as it may seem. I just couldn't find any free username that I'd like and that was a final act of desperation, haha.
Last year I concluded that having a long chemical username in Polish doesn't work to my advantage and changed it simply to my name (3 first letters) and surname.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Wow, that's a tough task to do.
kind, reserved, open-minded.
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
I do a cleaning in my gallery now and then, so I'm not sure if it was the very first.
...Totally not my current style.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
