Outside the Box -- Vol. 2
Ilana is an artist whose does sketching, sculpture and three dimensional art, but we are showcasing her sand fantasy video art.
Weaving together sand, light, and music she uses only her fingers to move the sand to the music and create scenes that flow from one image into the next.
" Watching  "Sand Fantasy" come to life in real time has an extraordinary effect on the audience.
A video camera is positioned over the glass table upon which Ilana creates her magic in sand. The image is instantaneously projected onto a big screen for the audience to see. Specially chosen music, enhancing the mood, accompanies the entire process!

Unseen Animal Artists Vol. 2
Have you ever browsed around the Animal section in Paintings or Drawings? I bet a lot of you have not! I don’t know why you people are not looking through it because there are a lot of great unseen animal art out there. Since not many people are looking through all of the great animal drawings and paintings, I thought I would bring some of the good ones to you!
Here is my second issue. There are many more great drawings and paintings. I thought I would clear up some things in this issue. All of these pieces of artwork in this issue and in the next ones to come have 100 or less views. In the first I noticed that some had like 300+ so from now on to get in you have to have 100 or less views for the piece of artwork.
:star: All of the artists have allowed me to use their work in my news entry. I would like to thank all of the artists, if they had not gave me permission, there would be no article! :( :star:

Portfolio Page...Contest! CLOSED
Portfolio Page...Contest!
**UPDATE** The contest is now closed and winners will be announced Monday!
So as many of you may recall, we promised to add a special portfolio page to subscribers accounts? Well, we are working on getting those rolling out but we have come to a stumbling block trying to decide exactly how they should look. And hey, since you guys will be the ones using them we decided you should be the ones who get to choose what they look like. But first…
For those unfamiliar with the concept I shall explain. The portfolio page will be a page that has a space for personal information, contact information, and the ability to place deviations on them of your choosing. The deviations will have no commentary on them, and a description will be optional. You may also pick and choose what deviations go on them. Primarily with things like this you would use it to showcase your strongest work.
The page itself will be

How Did They Do That?! Photo Episode 1
How Did They Do That?! Episode 1
It takes a lot to create a great photo, and sometimes the process seems like a mystery to the casual observer. In each episode of How Did They Do That?!, I interview a photographer about the creative process behind one of his or her recent popular photos. This time, I talk to jonjacobsen about what went into creating The forgotten arrival.

:1: Can you tell me some of the technical details about this photo?
Well, I took this picture with a Canon 350D. 1/400, F/5.0 at 27mm (I use the 18-55mm lenses) and a 100 ISO speed.
The post editing was done in Photoshop CS: Levels, colors, curves, channel mixer and selective correction.

:2: What are you trying to say with this photo?
The concept of this series was "World as reverse". This picture talks about a very well-known princess who arrived, but no one came to g

-- Stock Up -- Vol. 24
After browsing literally 12,500 stock images of males, I have come up the:
Best of the Boys.
I really hope that you enjoy this special edition, because it took a lot of time and patience to compile. The best are represented by some 150 features in this article. Some of the men you will be familiar with, and some of the features are by the same stock-provider.
But all of the features are featured because they are good. They are the model images that other people should be emulating. These are the leaders of the male stock of DA! ENJOY!

Panic Attack

Mental Health Awareness - Paint For Peace
 is today. The theme is actually "Inner Peace", but I wanted to do something a little more personal.

If you've been reading my posts for a while you are probably aware that I have hypothyroidism. The thyroid regulates hormones, and mine doesn't work. One of the symptoms is depression/anxiety and all sorts of other fun things.

My paint today represents one of the symptoms of an anxiety attack. There are all sorts of panic/anxiety attacks, and different levels. When they get really bad, my eye sight goes dark and I start to lose my vision. A black haze creeps into the corners and my sight goes blurry and dark. I see stars, and my hearing fades. It sounds like my head is underwater and I cannot understand what people are saying to me. It feels like an elephant is on my chest, and my knees give out and I can hardly stand.

While all this is happening, I am aware of it, and aware of the fact that people around me are staring, trying to interact with me, and I am unresponsive and can barely breathe. It is a terrifying experience, especially in a crowd. (These type mostly happen to me in crowds)

You never know when it might happen. I do pretty good regulating mine as long as I have a task at hand, something to do, a responsibility to focus on. Thankfully I've never had one at work, and I have only had one or two at bodypaint events after I was done painting and waiting for the runway/judging.

So.... be kind to everyone. You never know what people are going through. It's called an invisible illness for a reason. People get really good at hiding it. Due to the stigma people haven't talked about it in the past. But I want everyone to know that I got your back, I feel your struggle, and I'm here for you.

More Information
May is Mental Health Awareness Month #breakthestigma

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said
'Cause two can keep a secret
If one of them is dead?
-The Pierces
