   :bulletred: Artists interview  


JoeDiamondD:iconjoediamondd:, an amazing artist from Romania, gave an interview to Hazel WhimsicalBlue:iconwhimsicalblue: and the group :iconart-glory:. Joe shared her creative process, told how she started to learn Photoshop “by mistake”, and called things she does to get inspired. Are you interested? Then read Joe’s interview and look at her beautiful and creative works:

Entomology - The dying light by JoeDiamondD  Artist of the Month - JoeDiamondDEvery month we the group :iconart-glory: select an artist for a short interview and discuss about their passion "Art". 
So lets welcome our  very talented :iconjoediamondd:
She's a versatile artist from Romania who's passionate about art, each of her work tells a story of it's own.
As someone has said it so beautifully " The greatest art in the world is the art of storytelling"

 1. How did you start making art? And why do you make art ?

 I start learning Photoshop by mistake, when I was a teenager I used to play games online and a lot J, getting involved in that community, especially on forum discussions. There were different competitions at that time, so being a competitive person myself, I couldn’t stay aside and start learning  Photoshop to create signatures (those little images that include your character name in game). but  in time, I wanted more so I began to study and adapt my style for a


I (Lora-Vysotskaya:iconlora-vysotskaya:) was honored to give an interview and present my work in the Suspense Magazine! So, if you want to get to know me and my work closer please read this:

:spotlight-left: Monthly  spotlight :spotlight-right:

He’s a self-taught artist, his art is 1% talent, 99% hard work, he uses a graphite pencil and a computer mouse equally well, his art style is dark but colorful, he loves trillers and cats and he has an amazing sense of humor!
Meet the Artist of the Month - The Talented Mr-Ripley:iconmr-ripley:!

He didn't graduate from any art institution and practiced his skill by drawing a lot of traditional portraits. When he got his first computer he quit doing traditional art and turned to digital art. Ripley says that working with computer makes him feel much more comfortable and happier. He doesn’t have to worry about mistakes in his art anymore, he knows he can edit it anytime he wants.

Mr-Ripley is undoubtedly talented but he believes that hard work is 99% of his success as an artist. He says, “You can't have any talent or skill without practicing or working hard for it before. Even if you were born as a talented child, it means you have worked hard on something before in your previous life. I'm not yet a talented artist. I'm just a hard working one that hits the edit button a hundred times before I can finish a piece of work.”

Most scenes in his works look dramatic, dark and fearsome. And some of his manips are filled with humor and irony. But anyway he doesn’t make a picture just to show his skills, he’s more interested to put some story, feeling or emotion inside his work, and to make it realistic and effective to viewers as much as he can.

You can see this by looking amazing manipulations by Mr-Ripley:

Introducing Ellysiumn
:iconellysiumn:
My name is Gene, and I am a dream weaver. I was born in Munich, but I have also Spanish blood on my mother's side. I spend seasons in Germany and Spain. I started out with Photoshop about 13 years ago, at first only for distraction but it rapidly became an addiction, to the point that I spent hours on it, even forgetting to eat! I'm an observer by nature, I love looking at the sky, space, and long dist
The Kingdom of the eagles by Ellysiumn
Meet Your Neighbor XIVHer name is Madeleine and she's an artist from Canada.
The peacefully powerful fine art in her gallery is a feast for viewers to savor.
"'Real life' is making many demands on her so she may seem a bit shy but nonetheless she's a great neighbor.
:iconsaperlipop:





I ask that you not only talk the talk but also walk the walk. It's the neighborly thing to do.

6th DD and Underappreciated Art featureHi everyone! :heart:
First of all just want to share my happiness as I've found my 6th DD just happened a few days ago. :D:D
Of course I want to thank cosmicbound for featuring it. Here's some of his digital art for you all!
  
Aside of that, I guess some of you noticed I haven't been around so much lately, and I'm still not sure when I can be here again as often as I'd like. I've also done a lot of fav & run and for that I apologize! But I wanted to check all your art and it was close to 200 stacks, so there you go. :P
Now it's time for another feature, and this time I'm going for a lot of the amazing art I found that I thought didn't get enough attention. All of these have less than 100 favorites at the time I write this so if you see anything you like in this feature, please check out the link and leave the artist a word or a fav! :D
And now...

PERDIDA EN EL BOSQUE by MarMorena
Feature of inspirational works June and JulyHi lovelies,
After a period where I found it quite hard to create art, I am back but I am taking it on a slow level... I don't want to push myself.
At the moment, here in Belgium summer is fully ongoing and sun is shining (it's like way too hot for doing something) - but I am not complaining. We are currently dealing with a period that has lots of sun and no rain at all...
----------
How are you guys doing? How is the weather in your region/ country?
----------
 I T ' S   F E A T U R E   T I M E !!!!
A new feature awaits to display the wonderful art of my friends and my fellow deviants :heart:
As usual, this journal is full of talent! Wow! OMG!
I would say, show the deviants some love Love. I know they will appreciate it. :heart::heart::heart:
