:bulletred: Walpapers: New Beginning 

Gene Raz von Edler, aka Ellysiumn :iconellysiumn:, became a new community volunteer for Walpapers category. The uniqueness of this category is its universality. Photomanipulation also can be a walpaper. To know more about this kind of art read this article: 
Let's talk about wallpapersWhat is a wallpaper?

Want to try your hand at creating wallpapers? Go ahead! You even have a chance to win some prizes in this contest:
Nature Wallpaper Contest. ENTRIES
Welcome to our first Wallpaper Contest!
The rules are simple and entering the contest is easy... Keep reading!

The Theme is... Nature!
Nature, in the broadest sense, is the natural, physical, or material world or universe. "Nature" can refer to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. The study of nature is a large, if not the only, part of science. Although humans are part of nature, human activity is often understood as a separate category from other natural phenomena.

:bulletred: Artists interviews 

Wesley-Souza :iconwesley-souza:, a talented artist from Brazil, one of the most visible figures in our PM community, gave an interview to Hazel WhimsicalBlue:iconwhimsicalblue: and the group :iconart-glory:. What is his greatest challenge in creating art and what ways has he found in overcoming the artistic challenge? Why fantasy is the main genre of his art? Wesley tells about it here:
Bruxinho Travesso by Wesley-Souza  Artist of the Month - Wesley-SouzaThis month’s artist is a  well known figure and has seen DA grow from strength to strength, his contribution to this community is unparallel. Everyone looks up to him and has inspired many artists.
His artworks speak a lot about his passion for fantasy art and creature, which leads us to an imaginative world. They are beautifully captivating and magically spell binding.
So let’s welcome :iconwesley-souza: our artist on spotlight at :iconart-glory: whose zealous for art can be seen in his work, a talented artist from Brazil:heart:
1. Have you taught someone how to create art? And what was the result?
The closest I taught was few years back for a contest named “Coaching challenge”, it was a wonderful experience teaching artists on how to improve their skills. And for that I made a simple tutorials explaining on how to enhance their work.  And I’m proud to say that the outcome was surprisingly amazing. There was a huge improvement in their wo

Amazing artist JayGraphixx was selected to be exposed on the group homepage The-Imaginarium with a special feature and a short interview. What made him become a digital artist? What has been the most challenging project he has worked on? Read Jay’s answers here:
A Glance Of Nature by JayGraphixx  Special Feature and Interview - JayGraphixxEvery month we select one member to be exposed on the group homepage The-Imaginarium  and we will do a special feature and a short interview.
Set of amazing photo manipulations and short interview by talented artist JayGraphixx

1. First of all we would like to thank you for taking the time to provide The-Imaginarium  with this interview. Please tell us more about your Art and what made you become an Digital Artist ?

Describing my art? Hmm, if I should find the words to describe my art. I'd say I want it to be epic, astounding, entertaining, intriguing, action packed but yet beautiful. I want the viewers to be filled with emotion and be inspired. I've come a long way with my art but the journey has just begun. The life of an artist is not an easy ride -- I've said it before, ‘art isn't a six-month course’. It’s an ongoing voyage where you’re continuously learning. It's a lot of hard work, fun and excitement but

:bulletred: Wesley in Fantasy Calendar 

Wesley-Souza  shared another news as well: his work My Friend Monster has been chosen to be on the 'A Knock at the Door 2019 Fantasy Art Wall Calendar''! Congratulations Wesley!

My Friend Monster -  Update 2016 by Wesley-Souza   I'm in Fantasy Art Wall Calendar 2019A great news, I'm on the ''A Knock at the Door 2019 Fantasy Art Wall Calendar'' with my little monster :love:

My little monster has been chosen to be on the calendar, I'm in the month of June.

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

Today in our spotlight an incredible artist with unrepeatable, recognizable style - thegirlcansmile. Her works are full of emotions, they are sad and touching. They always carry some message. They sound, they talk to you. Sometimes they cause a smile, and sometimes sadness, but they never leave a viewer indifferent. 

“I would absolutely say art is my way of expressing feelings. It's the one place I can go where I can be completely free and raw without worrying about a safety net. Art doesn't have to be safe, it doesn't have to feel good. It doesn't have to leave you with a good feeling as long as it leaves you with something”,  -  the artist says. - “It's all about finding your own voice and then not being afraid to listen to it. To use it, and dare to use it loudly. Not worrying so much about the effect it will have on others, but the effect it has on you. When you create with passion you can do no wrong.”

Please visit thegirlcansmile’s gallery and and you will not want to leave this magical place.
