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: ElinTan :iconelintan:

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

I'm always striving to create something better than the last, my goal is to constantly improve. I'm influenced by the things around me and I like to draw what I enjoy.

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

I started on deviantART to follow other artists that inspired me, and to get to know people who had the same interests. It's a very cheery community, and has it been very supportive.

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

I started very young, before attending kindergarten I would colour and draw many things, it continued to primary and high school. Whether I was good or bad, I found I really enjoyed it, and would just bring paper everywhere to draw.


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

Music definitely inspires me, abstract songs from Owl city, very uplifting, cheerful and sad songs influence my choice of subject and composition. When I'm not under pressure from assignments and exams I feel it gives me more space and time to conjure up ideas and explore as far as my creativity takes me.

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

Chemistry, or music. I find them both very enjoyable, however I cannot imagine myself doing anything other than art, ahahaha. Though, I am curious.

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

Destruction of Creation was created initially to convey a message, however, I found that leaving it free to interpretation created many different perspectives and it was very interesting to read all the responses. It was one of my attempts to depict a story through art. It was inspired through music and a mini novel I had in my head.


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

Many, however I'm working on reducing them by improving my knowledge and learning how to overcome these. I really enjoy admiring atmospheric works so I'm working towards it.

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

Art offers an escape, I usually feel very peaceful when drawing or painting, it's sort of like a calming activity hahaha. Deal with my life problems, not really, I have to face them, but Art offers this solid support which is very valuable in these times. When I happen to come across brilliant works it really lifts my spirit, I love being in the mood of admiring good works.

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

There are many things I would like to do, and one of them predominating at the moment is to travel. I'd like to expand my horizons and see what's out there. I feel that I would grow much more, and that it would be very exciting.


:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Don't loose hope! Definitely, after every rain there's sunshine, every cloud has a silver lining. It doesn't matter what other people think, it really doesn't matter if they put you down, I can't emphasize this enough. Practice a lot, and never stop! I used to be ashamed of my skills and was too scared to show other people, this hindered my growth as an artist and I can tell you now it's much more worthwhile to experiment and fail than to keep repeating the same techniques.

Mature Content

Gathering MossWe all roll down hill once and a while, and by chance do we gather moss.
From green lips comes the kiss of vegetation
passionately burning from sun leafs
yet unforgiving as poison oak  
Fingers rooting from soil crooked looking for water
as dew falls towards the sky
and they suffer thirsty
Stones un-bleeding
As cold as stone, buried deep like coal, everyone of us have roles.
But I find myself rolling and tossed
We once and a while are rocks gathering moss.

:thumb399193102: incisorsWhat
can
I
do
You are gritty fingernails and razor teeth. You
burn, you fucking
supernova boy.
You machine gun cutthroat drop dead
atom bomb
sharp shock stun gun claws out knockout
Spilled drink sweat-slick struck dumb
purple-red bruise livid eyes on fire.
Hit and run.
Pale, taut neck, shadows from lamplight
pulse looping hot and fast under marble
I don't want you to win my heart, I want
you to rip it out, still beating;
make a notch in your bedpost and
preserve it in formaldehyde.
232.Passion, like all heat,
comes to an end only when
the storm breaks at last
