What Ruins A Painting?
(or makes it better)
We all had those kind of paintings at some point, looking at which we felt something is not right – something is not right – But could not find it. What went wrong? We have put every finest details and all our patience in it. Then?
Art has its own science. Science that makes a successful art – something that comes out exactly you thought of and leaves the same impact on your audience. That science is known as composition in art and music. Where your eyes will go at first, how you will draw attention, how much attention you will draw – these are not luck, but pure science. A well thought designed piece is always successful. So mastering the brushes are not enough, we have to learn about the basics that make a successful art!
Hence, today, we will talk about the 'bad' elements which are solemnly responsible for rui
5 ways to get things doneDear, deviantart fellow artistsMore Like This
Continuation of my journal post "5 reasons why we fail to get things done"
Often we try to be as productive as possible - so many things to do, so many artworks to make. But then comes the procrastination, indecisiveness, lazyness and other excuses that come in our way. How to deal with them, how to accomplish all we ever wanted..? Here are my 5 tips for you that I have been doing for a while and I hope that It'll help you too.
1. 3 tasks for a day.
In the morning or in the previous evening write down 3 main things you want/need to do in a day. Be realistic, but strive for the things that will help you develop the skill, move you closer to bigger goals. Check them, change them depending on each day and cross them over when you have made them happen. You will k

Art and expectationsDear, deviantart fellow artistsMore Like This
There are times when having way too low or way too high expectations can lead to bad results and have a negative impact on things that we do and how we feel.. but how to deal with this problem? How to achieve the perfect balance that would help us in our creative journey? Here are my thoughts about the topic, that I hope might be helpful for you.
Too low expectations
When you think that you're not good enough, that you lack the skill, talent that other artists have, being afraid of failing and overthinking all the time. But all those things do only harm - stopping you from actually doing the work, even though you may think that you are not able to do that, it doesn't mean that it's true. You'll never know if you won't try.
It's so easy to find all those excuses, but it takes a lot of persistence to not let doubts and low self-esteem stand in our way. We all are humble and we all have flaws.

What to you defines the start of Autumn? Is it the weather, temperature, smell, trees, animals, food? For me this year it started with the sudden drop in temperature and the wind picking up. Then the skies started to darken and the first leaves fell. The biggest change for me this year though now that i am deeply into baking and food photography is the end of the summer baking. No longer are with summer berries for cool and refreshing desserts, instead is the turn of the warm and hearty.
There is an interesting article on Autumn on Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autumn definitely worth checking out if you are an Autumn lover.

Hello dear watchers, followers and everyone who is passing by! Now that it's coming, I don't want to hide that I'm really fanatic about Eurovision song contest. Though it only reaches this continent, I think it's awesome though to browse through the entries, because it's never enough of hearing a good tone paired with meaningful lyrics. I went through the watchlist and I took to 3 songs really much, not only they have a good tone, but they are meaningful as well, and I'd like to make a song-inspired feature about each of them.
The first is our (Hungary's) entry, Running, sang by András Kállay-Saunders. Don't call me obsessed, I do not promote this song because it's ours, but because at least it has a meaning. It's about a really serious topic - child abuse awareness - and

Real spring has began over here, and I thought about starting a new project as well about colors, and since during spring everything is so amazing bright green, and last but not least, this is my favourite color as well.

SPRING IS IN THE AIRSpring is just around the corner and I was wondering if anyone was as excited as I am. I love spring because everything comes back to life and the world is filled with all the brilliant colors of the rainbow. The air seems so fresh and life just seems to be renewed. The baby animals are so cute and the flowers all seem to smile. The fresh green grass feels like a soft carpet on my feet and the birds come back to sing so sweet. I would like to know if anyone else loves Spring as much as I do.More Like This

it's simple but I can watch it for long hours.

What is a forest?
In the simplest terms, forests are areas of land covered with trees and undergrowth. However, while it is true that forest landscapes are dominated by trees, in reality these ecosystems are far more complex than they may first appear, supporting a whole host of different species and playing an important part in human livelihoods.

UrbexUrban Explorers are likely to find absolutely anything when they venture into abandoned places. Read about what this photographer found when he ventured into an abandoned Sugar Mill... It's also nice to read about how places have been rescued from becoming abandoned and lost to history, like this New York lighthouse which people are working hard to restore and make into a B & B!More Like This
Hotels can be fairly daunting at the best of times, especially some of those old ones and at night. But I think that these urban exploration captures of abandoned hotels and hotel rooms are actually quite beautiful in their own strange way...

What Is a Crystal ?
Crystal is the solid form of a substance in which the atoms or molecules are arranged in a definite, repeated patterns. The formation results in one of three ways: a liquid may cool or freeze into a solid; dissolved matter may precipitate out of a solution; or gases may condense into a solid form. The external shape of the crystal -- smooth, symmetrically arranged, flat surfaces -- reflects its atomic structure.
The most common crystal in photography is snow, but there are many other crystals around us and they can all be beautiful.
One of the surprising aspects of crystal is the variation of their size. One single crystal can measure a few nanometres or up to several meters, like in the famous cave of Naica. In the following pictures it is possible to observe that crystals can have the same shape at different scales.

Need advices/Besoin de conseilsEdit : I'm probably not going to pass this school's tests so now I still have at least two months to get ready for the others, but I'd still like your thoughts on it, please !More Like This
I'm going to pass some tests and a motivation interview or I don't know how to say it for a 3D animation school... In three weeks.
I've been warned only yesterday when I thought I had at least three-four months to prepare myself, and YEAH AS I'M A BIT OF A STRESSED PERSON THIS IS NOT HELPING
Their english or "general aptitude" test ain't scaring me, but the thing is THIS INTERVIEW. Giving my experience on interviews and anything that involves talking to someone face to face, I'm pretty much fahked. This is also the only school I'm willing to go to that doesn't have a "year 0" where you learn the basics of drawing and other forms of art, so it's also the most demanding (for now), I think. This school is not my top priority but it's about time I'd ask for advices, at least for the two other schools

Did You Know - Manage DeviationsManage DeviationsMore Like This
Especially when you have quite a lot of artworks in your gallery, it can become tricky to manage your deviations and to sort through them.
That's why we have the manage deviations page. You can either access it via the direct link or by choosing "Manage Deviations" from the Submit Menu.
On that page you have listed your deviations & journals. The overview will give you the name, the category it was submitted to, the publishing date and it also lists your sharing options and if critiques and comments are enabled or disabled.
When hovering over your deviation title, you will also get a little preview of that deviation. This helps to know what deviation you are going to edit, when you can't remember what title goes with what deviation.

Tags are the new KeywordsKeywords on deviations were built to be an important tool to help discover artwork. But as deviantART grows and strives to create new ways to discover great content, we’ve found that keywords as we currently use them have become underutilized. We think we can do better -- and can make a better experience for the community -- by making some changes.More Like This
In the coming month, keywords will transition into tags, and we’ll be improving the way they work. Tags will better surface artwork, allow deviants to form communities around topics, make it easier to find other artists and art appreciators, and increase discoverability.
For example, if you're a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles it can be difficult to know what to search for: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja Turtles, TMNT, Donatello, etc. Public tags provide visibility to see how others are tagging their deviations, which will allow you to align your behavior to the norm, or ch
Fan Fiction On deviantARTGalleries MonthMore Like This
What Is Fan Fiction?
Everyday, we are inspired by movies, television, novels, and other forms of media. They engage our minds with a variety of stories and characters, their plights and triumphs, their everyday minutiae. Fan fiction authors are so enamored with these other worlds and their inhabitants that they must partake in the stories which have brought them so much enjoyment. They expand on the current universe, explain gaps in the narrative and delve into characters' motivations.
A good fan fiction (or fanfic) is more than simple borrowing another writer's characters and universe. The fan fiction author must immerse his or her readers in the story, make them believe it is a natural extension of the source material. Characters have their own mannerisms and quirks; each universe has its own history and rules that need to be followed. The fan fiction author must master the nuances of those characters and the world they inhabit (unless purposely writi
When It's HardHi folks! I realized in my most recent round of blogs that I've been a little quick to tell you all to put on your grown up panties, but this one is going to be a little different. Making art can be one of the most exhilarating things you'll ever do, but (and this is from personal experience also) 80% of the time you're going to fail. You'll spill your ink all over that glorious drawing. Oil from your hands will permanently stain only the portion of paper that was meant to remain a snowy white. Your computer's hard drive will crash or all your image files (all the WIPs especially) will get corrupted. You'll try something new and it just won't work out the way you envisioned. These things are the parts that aren't really spoken about enough, and so when they happen to us we assume that we're doing something terribly wrong. I'm here to tell you that we all go through these things and there's always a solution!More Like This

I didn't want to spam you all with journal entries, so I will just apologize for my absence and lack of activity this past half year here. Especially, apology to my great fellow admins, who kept the group up and running. I had some personal issues to come clear with, too much work, and some frustration about my photography, making it hard for me to feel any joy by uploading something to or participating in any way here in the community. However, I seem to have fixed all that now, and am back here. There will be regular features again, that not only me, but my fellow admins will compose, and feature the great works in this group.
Speaking of features, this feature is a sequel to the ones I did before I left, all about purple tones. When I went through our galleries, i couldn't help to be amazed by the stunning works we already collected, and by the few favorites most of them seem to have accumulated. This still makes me sad, since the purpose of this group should be

Where did you learn?
I've taught myself. My Secondary (High) School art teacher told me 'cartoon are not art' and so I had no interest in perusing 'art' classes any further. At about 13 I began to draw every day, less studying, more drawing what came to mind, creating characters and worlds and getting my thoughts and feeling onto paper.
I joined deviantART at 15, and the feedback and critique I've gained through sharing my art online has helped a lot in my improvement. I wasn't born with any 'gift', unless you count functioning hands, I learned through practice. My early drawings are just as bad as everyone elses (I keep them as proof) I a

Journal updated, with my scanning technique=======More Like This
I've got so many questions about how I scan my traditional artworks, I also wanted to try out my deviantart Sta.sh storage, so I've uploaded some scanned files and put them on this journal.
Here's my method.
: I use HP G4050 scanner
: My current working OS is Windows 7, but I always use Windows XP to scan my artworks
: I always put 2 bluish-tint transparent films under my pictures when scanning. [You can buy transparent film at stationery stores.]
: Then adjust colors with photoshop, I always set contrast to [+12] or [+14] and I always use legacy contrast.
: I also adjust sharpness sometimes.
[filter>sharpen>unsharp mask> and adjust radius to : +1 pixels.
: Remove all eraser dust using clone stamp tool and it's done.
Someone might wonder why don't I use windows 7 for scanning, why do I have to put 2 transparent films underneath, and why they have to be bluish tint, I have uploaded some sample images for you to compare.

Do my children know about my modeling? Yes they do. Do my children have a problem with my posing nude or taking nude photos of others? No. they don't.
Yet every single time I do it someone and usually more than one person takes it upon them selves to point out how ugly, fat, or old I am.

Whether hated or loved, admired, respected, or merely looked at through passing, DA has acquired artists from all corners of the world together in one place to share pictures, stories, and ideas.More Like This
So, with all thats positive about DeviantArt, why is there so much negativity all the time? How is it, that I find so many people arguing about pointless things, page to page? With all the art thieves, copyright issues, drama, broken feelings, and shattered hopes, why is it that everyone is so drawn to DA in the first place?
Arent we a community, DeviantArt?
Page Views, Watches, and Favoriting:
Too many times, people concern themselves with things that, when in perspective, seem minuscule to the whole point of DA.

Hello again! After an amazing week for Photostuff (we have around 150 new Photography mates and we’ve reached 1000 members!), we have prepared a new feature, this time the theme is STILL LIFE & MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY.
So, same as for the last feature, relax, take your time, take some snack, and check them all, they’re really original, imaginative pictures, and they’re great inspiration for us all!

For those of you who do read these entries, I apologize for the serious topics lately. But I would really like to get this all off my chest, because there are truly so few people to talk to about all this right now.
*** Before I begin, I think it's important to state that, quite simply, I don't want your pity. I don't want anyone to feel sorry for me. I don't want you to give me points or fave my work or anything like that just because of this. I want points from those who like and wish to support my work, not because of the situation I'm in. In the end, all I truly want is prayers--that's all you can do that could possibly help my family and I. Thank you.
In short, there are very, very few words in the English language that can make it feel like your heart has stopped beating; very few words have this kind of resounding power.
We were given the news in the opening days of summer last year in 2012. But it wasn't me; it was my mom. My beautiful, strong, always res
