15 Under 15 Feature 114

Wow! So, it's apparently been nearly a month since I submitted my last 15 under 15 feature D: And I gotta say, it made choosing art really difficult, because there was a lot of good ones to feature! Hope you enjoy the ones that ended up making the cut :heart:






Shameless by LidiaVives^ This. Wow, perfect spooky image for this time of the year. 
Andrea #2 by silkephoto
^ I absolutely adore the styling in these shots. silkephoto is one of my favorite fashion photographers on DA, and she has really been nailing it with the work she's been submitting!
ALEKSANDRA by parkometr
^ The lighting. The mood. Absolutely dramatic perfection.
Moon Princess by Pandato
^ Such a pretty Inktober piece, it immediately brings to mind Sarah at the masquerade ball in Labyrinth.
Eggless cake for a friend's civil wedding ~ by GeetikaSB
^ These little cupcakes look absolutely decadent! Delicately put together and so lovely :aww:

Let the Music Play by MatthieuColnat
^ This is just unbelievably stunning, a total dream :heart:

Chill Purple by ti-DESIGN
^ Gorgeous colors and such a peaceful look on the subject's face :heart: Love the way the hair is painted as well!
Mary Katrantzou SS18 by lanitta
^ The DETAILS. Such a cool fashion illustration with the perfect amount of Alice in Wonderland flair :heart:
Flamingo brooch by polyflowers
^ I feel that this is a brooch that I desperately need to add to my collection.  Such a great combo of shapes and colors!
[Ineta] by wdx
^ wdx 's fashion work is always amazing, but I especially love the combo of textures and the echoing of the diamonds in the background and coat!
Brezel by JezebelsFascination
^ This pretzel fascinator is quirky fashion heaven, absolutely love everything about it!
Sand by ANNAmaly
^ Gorgeous lighting and detail in this close-up shot!
Blossom by Observer14
^ A beautifully elegant sculpture, she looks as though she's being born from the flower.
terrariums and succulents by aoiblue02
^ These delightful little succulent illustrations are so colorful and immediately eye-catching!
Cherry by Nozomi21
^ All of Nozomi21 's berry jewelry is amazing, but these little cherry earrings are especially sweet and charmingly simple.
Invisible Illnesses - Anxiety by KPatoni
^ A stunning color palette and the highlights really make the details stand out beautifully.

Some more contests I wanted to promote! :heart:

A horror photography contest, perfect for Halloween:  The Last Photograph | a horror contest
Mrs-Durden and I would like to invite you to take part in a horror photography contest with a difference - the goal isn't to take the 'best' photo. The goal is to totally creep us out!
Instead of giving you a theme or a topic, we're giving you a story. The end of the story is the photo you take and submit to the contest.
We encourage you to dig around in the darkest depths of your imagination. If you're awesome at costume creating, monster making and effects make-up, that's great. If you're a super experienced horror photographer, that's great too. BUT...if you're none of those things, that's also great and you have just as much chance of winning!
Also, don't worry if you don't have a fancy camera, because shooting your contest entry on your phone will add to the authenticity of your photo and may work in your favour!
So, without further ado, here's how to take part.
[ the story ]

And *drum roll please* a contest about creating a new community project!  Pitch A Project ContestCommunity Engagement Week
The Pitch a Project Contest!
DeviantArt is an online community full of people from around the world specializing in an endless variety of artistic talents. Millions of people around the world have joined this website to post their artwork, sell their product, or even just join to enjoy the plentitude of stunning gallery works! It can be hard to find your place in such a huge community. Thankfully there are many, many deviants who create projects geared to help people find one another, engage on a more social level, and challenge themselves or others.
Some such projects include:

One of the artists I watch, TheBrassGlass  is making a webcomic series that includes characters with disabilities.  They are looking for advice on representing these characters mindfully and without ableism, so if you have some advice they would really appreciate it :heart:

Not to mention, the incredible amount of inspiration I constantly feel because of you all :aww: Thank you again and again from the bottom of my heart. :love:
There's some really exciting stuff going on in the community that I'd love for you to check out and join in on!

Supporting Working Artistshow does this work?
Take a look at the artists featured below, add this journal to your favourites and leave a comment on this journal explaining who you would pick if you won, and why. On October 30th a winner will randomly be picked. You will then be prompted to discuss what you would like from the artist you chose. Now of course there are limits to this, as you will see below, the artists explain what you could win from them, so you must carefully read that. The Community Relations team will be paying for the artwork you end up deciding on and receiving. So your favourite artist will be getting paid for their work, as they should. Indeed, this is a big part of this project: supporting local businesses!

"'THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT.' 
I have never made one of them do anything. Never.
They live their own tiny lives. I do not live their lives for them.
And then they die, and they come here
(having transgressed against what they believed to be right),
and expect us to fulfill their desire for pain and retribution. 
I don't make them come here."

― Neil Gaiman, The Sandman: Season of Mists
“O human race, born to fly upward, wherefore at a little wind dost thou so fall?”
Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

"People who cease to believe in God or goodness altogether still believe in the Devil.
Evil is always possible. And goodness is eternally difficult."

Anne Rice, Interview with the Vampire

Welcome all, to this TENTH ANNIVERSARY EDITION of the All Hal
 And for literature, there's a great spooky contest being hosted by Memnalar with some really great prizes!
Looking for some critique on my work in regards to usability for book covers.  Anybody with experience that can give me some pointers? Or tell me which series of my work would work the best for it? I'd like to submit to a boutique stock agency like Arcangel etc., but trying to get a feel from somebody with experience before I attempt to apply *is very scared of failure*
Come have some fun with Sketch Match in the chats in 40 minutes from now! 
Probably won't be posting a 15 under 15 tomorrow, so I figured I'd just spam you with some art that made me smile this week:

Great article on critique vs criticism:  Giving Feedback: How do I do that?Feedback Weekend
Hello all!
This is Yuukon and B0nkers and we have combined forces for Feedback Weekend!
Hello and Welcome to Bonks’ and Yuu’s Guide to Giving Feedback!
It’s so wonderful that you’re here, and we hope this article will be useful for you. Should you have any questions when you have reached the end, feel free to ask them! We’ll happily answer them for you.
Let’s first start off with some terminologies. There are a lot of different terms when it comes to giving feedback, and a first step to being able to give some is understanding what all these words mean.
When someone requests feedback it usually means they are seeking for critique and not criticism. There is a vast difference between the two so let’s find out what they are before we jump into how to give sound feedback.
Critique is a critical review, discussion or commentary of a specified topic.
Criticism is to judge, to find faults with


And ALSO! My newest Catwalk Talk interview with Lisa-MariePhotog is up!  Interview with Lisa-MariePhotogThis month I interviewed Lisa-MariePhotog !  Lisa is a Scottish-born photographer currently living in Canada. Despite the fact that she's only been on DeviantArt for 4 years, her gallery is filled with wonderfully dreamy and colorful photographs that never fail to leave me in awe! I hope you enjoy reading about her work straight from the artist herself! :heart: 
Enjoy!


What made you decide to photograph people? And was fashion the type of photography you first started out creating?


:iconlisa-mariephotog:
When I first started falling in love with photography, I was interested in all genres. I really wasn’t sure what my main focus was going to be until I enrolled in University studying photography. Food photography became an instant love for me and was the genre I was going to pursue as a career. During my second year of University, we had an assignment to photograph a classmat
