As the title suggests, this news article's goal is to spread the dA love into everyone's heart! You will find here a little bit of everything, from awesome interviews with talented artists, art features, group promotion to random deviants' features. I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: Fragile-Eyes-Fiction :iconfragile-eyes-fiction:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

I'm a photography student from Quebec, Canada. I'm trying to evolve as an artistic photographer here in Quebec city. It's a hard process but nothing is more important to me than doing what i love to do.

:bulletyellow: How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

I've met a girl online in my area and we started to talk about photography. She was a model and she linked me to her DA account (witch is not active anymore). I was studying fine art at the time and decided to create an account to share my traditional work. I was not aware at this time that i would fall in love with photography.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

I was drawing a lot in my teenage years and i took fine art at college. About 4 year after that, i met my girlfriend, I started some photoshoot with her, we've decided to take photography classes together and we were both accepted. That was 3 years ago.


:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

It cheesy to say but I have to say music. I listen to a lot of music and each of the photography i publish usually makes me think of a song or was created after i heard a great song. My creativity takes its peaks when i work with great models. I love when models gives their ideas and critique the work we do together.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

I would probably be building guitars because I've also studied guitar building. I use to play a lot of music so i think i would have try a career in the music industry. I never wanted my life to be easy i guess :P

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?

Like An Eagle is probably the most meaningful to me... It was my first real experience with a ballerina and we had a great day. When i saw what i could do with dance photography, I've wrote to many dancers in Quebec city and i'll be working with a lot of them very soon.


:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

Sometime i think I go too far with photoshop haha! But seriously, I'm always afraid to receive comments that are mean for the model. These woman give me their times and their permission to publish our work and they love to see all the beautiful comment. I feel so ashamed when they read bad comments...

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

I would lie if I told you that I had to deal with problems in my life. I actually love life with it's happy moments and it's more challenging moments.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

I would love to travel to find better places for photography because my city is not very inspiring!


:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Creation is a gift, always do what you want to do even thought sometime, some people expect you to be someone you are not. And of course, stay in school!

Literature Feature

T Just FriendsYou look at him,
He looks at you.
All you can do is look away
Because whenever you look at him
You realize he'll never be yours.
And one day you're going to lose him
To a girl who's better than you,
Prettier than you.
No matter how much you wish before going to sleep
No matter how much you dream of being his
He'll never be yours.
Every time you close your eyes
You see the same pair of green eyes,
And that same mysteriously shy smile.
That makes your heart skip a beat
He's perfect, you think.
"Maybe he doesn't deserve you." They say.
Or maybe they've got it all wrong.
Yes, it isn't that he doesn't deserve me, it's all because
I don't deserve a guy like him.
The thought hurts, makes you want to cry.
"We're just friends." He says.
And maybe that's what we're ever going to be.
Journey to ValhallaJourney to Valhalla:
The sound of battle surrounds me
As axe and sword will clash.
The fate of a man decided
In a single metal flash.
On the ground I lay awakened
For the blood is rushing low.
It bursts from my wound
In a searing bloody flow...
I scream like a raging animal
As with the last of strength I thrust!
My sword will pierce his lung
As my enemy turns to dust...
A ruined body before me
Cold as the winter snow.
I begin to feel quite dizzy
As the heavens start to glow.
I can hear the sound of horses
And the cry of hungry crows.
The clouds began to part
As from the ground we rose!
Like warriors from the grave
We stood from where we fell.
Warm as though we bathed
In an ancient seer's spell.
I can see him coming now
Sleipnir has arrived!

He's come to take us home
The valiant dead who died.
The valkyries riding through the clouds
On the backs of crows they call.
The gods themselves are smiling
As mountains they are tall!
These tears cannot express
The words we wi
What You Can't RememberWhat You Can't Remember:
You know that something's wrong inside
But you will try to hide it.
Far away from prying eyes;
You say you don't remember...
What is this memory inside.
You feel like you've forgotten.
A part of you decides;
To say you don't remember...
How long will you deny
The bitter truth behind it.
The day you lost yourself;
But now you can't remember...
When first you took away the mask
And looked back at the mirror.
You thought you saw another man;
But you simply don't remember...
The times when you were not yourself
When you forced yourself upon her.
It was a day like this;
But now you won't remember...
The past is locked away for good;
Now hide it with a key.
Smile and carry on in life;
In time you won't remember...
"It's easy to forget a monster..."

A Viking RebornA Viking Reborn:
The Gods have called upon me
In a time when the hammer's sign.
Has fallen from the heavens
By the bloody heathen's design.
Now weeping for the children;
That will never know his name.
Odin has now sent me
To ease our inner pain.
Remember the days of old
Where once we sailed the seas.
We used to be the masters
Of the mountains and the trees.
We tamed the rushing waters
And sailed across the world.
No mortal man could match us;
Even mermaids gave us pearls!
Our strength was the very fire
That roared in the dragon's belly.
We proudly wore the scales
From the beasts in the valley.
The dreaded monsters of legend
Trolls and Giants alike.
We fought them all and won;
We defeated the Thunder Shrike!
The heart that beats within us
Once carried a sacred fire.
A world in which we've lost that
Has a fate that's rather dire!
Out there beyond the stars
Lies a sea that thrives anew.
The vast ocean of space;
You know it to be true!
Where once we sailed the rivers
:thumb294434415: I Prayed to GodI prayed to God that he will take away my habit
But I only heard,
"I can only guide you, and you must be the one to have the strength to give it up."
I prayed to God to take away my friend's impurities.
But I only heard,
"The spirit is the only thing that matters; the body is only there for a short time."
I prayed to God to still my anger.
But only heard,
"You must learn to be patient; I will send guidance."
I prayed to God to make me a more joyous person.
But I only heard,
"I give you blessings and miracles, and you must decide whether to be happy about it or not."
I prayed to God to take away my suffering.
But I only heard,
"Offer it up in reparation, for through suffering you get closer to me."
I prayed to God so that I may serve him better.
But I only heard,
"Have faith, and do good works."
I ask God to help me love others just as he himself loves the world.
And I heard,
"You will be blessed; go in peace to love and serve, I, the Lord."
