Hello, lovely people! So glad to have you stop by! Welcome to our weekly Themed feature at devfeatures and AllArtWorld!

:icondevfeatures:             :iconallartworld:

The medium of choice for this week is SURREAL PHOTOGRAPHY - one of the lesser known and explored media on dA that deserves a lot of love nonetheless. Surreal art originates from the ideas of Freud about the meaning of dreams and how those can be interpreted. Famously undertaken by Salvador Dali in his otherworldly melting paintings, surrealism has evolved over time and explores many new concepts. The core of it, however, is always connected to something unreal, something beyond the tangibility of reality. And how do photographers venture in this realm when their craft is notoriously rooted in reality and represents a close copy of it? It's no small challenge and all the more admirable for it. Many photographers utilize unexpected compositions and juxtapositions, while others use the opportunities that modern equipment presents or explore natural optical illusions to their advantage. We have collected a sample of different approaches, each with its own unique appeal and challenges.
The feature was made with the help of: Yuukon SelflessDevotions LualaDy MegapixelMasterpiece UszatyArbuz
I hope you leave with at least a few new favourites and if you like this feature, fav it or share it to help spread the word.

Why YOU should join an awesome group like AAW:

:bulletyellow: We're going places, and we want to take you there. Since we were founded, we've always been one of the FASTEST GROWING groups on dA.

The group is set to auto-accept members!
Plus, ALL ART is accepted!
 In here, there's a folder for almost EVERYTHING.

Now there's an easy way to turn off deviations from the group. There's no need to unjoin!
All you have to do is click the green "watching" button in the top right corner, and uncheck "deviations".
See? Easy.


Please take a moment to look at these journals before submitting.

These are just a few simple rules that will help keep the group clean of drama, and make it a better place for your art. Failure to follow them is grounds for removal and banning.

Advertisement CornerHi everyone! :wave:

This is the place where you can advertise!

reference offers - all media

You can add all the details in the comments, and feel free to check the other events as well! :typerhappy:

Please keep the content reasonable also for our youngest members.


For your benefit and ours, do not submit any art to this group's quality controlled folders that breaks these guidelines.
It takes time for us to decline, and just adds to the backlog.
We usually can't even provide a reason for declination, but it's usually a matter of art quality.
So, here are the basics:
And of course, we still have the beginners art showcase for art that doesn't meet these.
NOTE: Only the "Best Of" folders are judged. All art gets into the June 2013 folder.
:bulletred: Don't send in any poorly done WIPs sketches or badly scanned pictures. We want the finished product! Send in your WIPs to other groups!
:bulletred: Digital art has to have shading, or at least be artistically flat, with nice patterns and form.
This means no muro or ms paint stuff, unless it is WELL done.
:bulletorange: We want AWESOME photography. No self-shots and no plain  face shots either. It must be artistic, and has to be interesting to
Group Update #69 : Your Feedback.Feedback regarding the new Submission Guidelines was mixed to negative.
In this Q+A interview, our group Founder will try to clear up some misconceptions and fears about the new submissions rules and folder system.
Q: Why was this new system implemented?
A: Because someone trashed the group, erased all the folders and made me have to redo everything.
Q: So, what is this new system, and why did you change it?
A: Our group was in crisis mode. We were dealing with too many submissions a day, and none were monitored. Most times, people would just unwatch the group and lose access to important updates about social events.
Something had to be done. This hack actually was a blessing in disguise.
It allowed the admins and I to design a new folder system that we thought would provide the best of both worlds: A place for expert premium artists to showcase their work amongst their peers AND a place where beginner artists could submit and be inspired.
Q: That's nice, but exactly WHAT is the system
Group Update #H1N1: Updated FAQ and Clarification.:icondeirdre-diuran: said: :iconsaysplz:"Could we get the Rules and FAQ updated with the recent submission details and changes, and a clearer rule on frequency of submissions (how many per folder per day/week/month per person)?
Much appreciated :)"
:iconslambox: :saysplz: Well, I think that's a good idea. While my previous post gave a general overview of what to expect; , it wasn't really CLEAR about what limits exactly are in place.
This post is.
Most folders marked "Best of" have  limits of 2 submissions a day- 2 deviations a week, which are quality checked. So CHOOSE WISELY, even if BOTH are declined, your limit is still up until next week.
The June 2013 folder allows you to choose 3 deviations a day and submit them.
The Beginner art folder has 2 a day to cut down on spam, and the art dump has 5 a day.
This group has standards. While we welcome all artists, certain things ju
