Interview with Mrs-DurdenThis month I got to interview an artist that I already know and really respect, my fellow community volunteer Mrs-Durden ! She was the fashion photography CV before me and the reason I ended up joining the CV team. Her fashion photography is filled with rich colors and a great mixture of vintage and contemporary styling, with just the right alternative fashion twist. Enjoy! Why did you decide to take photos of people? And was fashion the type of photography you first started out creating?:iconmrs-durden:Well, my first 'real' adventures with photography started in early 2009 when I was about to turn 15 years old. I was constantly hanging out with my best friend, so she was my guinea pig. I got bored quickly of trying to take pictures of plants, animals, places etc. It just wasn't interesting to me. Instead I liked trying to come up with clever or weird ideas my frie

Getting Involved on DA, Vol. 2: Commenting!Community WeekWelcome to the next segment in my mini series of how to get involved in our beloved DeviantArt community. The first article talked about how featuring other deviants can help you meet other artists and even generate some profile traffic for yourself. As expressed there, a lot of us want to be more involved on DA than just submitting artwork and waiting for people to find it. After all, this is an art community!This article will focus on another way to get involved, meet other artists, get some page views (maybe even watchers!), and help you feel more immersed overall:Smart Commenting!Yes, you're probably thinking "duh". I would too. But... Do this brief exercise for me. Think back to the last time you were browsing art on DA. How many times did you see something and say "I love this"? A few, I assume.How many of those did
How CVs Select Daily DeviationsHey all!I gave my watchers the chance to win the power to dictate what my next journal was going to be. death-tribble won and wanted an article addressing how CVs select DDs, either serious or humorous. I decided to go the humorous route Mrs-DurdenI basically select Daily Deviations based on the photographer who has the best equipment. Obviously, it's impossible to take a good photograph without thousands of euros worth of material. If you don't have state of the art camera equipment, there's no chance I'm ever going to give you a DD, sorry!Queen-Kitty I make sure to DD the same 10 or so people all of the time, new people are just not interesting to me. Plus usually the artists I feature are already popular, so I KNOW they're good!AngeKrystaleen 1 - The first thing that I'm looking for a DD is big boobies. You know, a manga/anime girl

Voyage Into The Unknown: Film and AnimationI wasn't "officially" tagged this time, but I saw Mrs-Durden post another one of these journals, and I decided to challenge myself to go on a voyage into the unknown. I've done this twice before (Voyage Into The Unknown - Sculptures & Voyage to the Uknown: Fan Art), and now it's time to do this again!THE CONCEPT"The idea is to browse through a category or sub-category that you don't necessarily visit frequently, or that you browse the least, and collect some of the art you find stands out! The point of this is to challenge ourselves and discover new art in the process!" - Mrs-DurdenDon't forget to use the tag

Artists of APN: AenkillIt's not often I get to talk to a photographer who is skilled in shooting both landscapes and dogs- but when I do, I am excited! Introducing Aenkill!Hi Aenkill! Let's start off with introductions, who are you?:iconaenkill:My name is Sara and I was born in Poland but I currently live in Scotland. I work as a Technical Support Engineer so it's not even close to photography. Over 12 years ago I got a small point and shoot camera as a birthday present, which I soon upgraded to more advanced hybrid and them my first DSLR. I remember I really enjoyed taking pictures of my puppy, I must have been 12-ish at that time, and this is how it all started. Obviously, my first pictures were not that great but I joined on online forum and slowly learnt about photography and editing. When browsing your gallery, I can't help but notice a huge diversity, main

Just One More Question...v5 Dear all,In February I introduced the first issue of this new journal series I am very excited about. I had this idea where I wanted to do a series that showcases the immense diversity of people we have as members here on DeviantArt. And I wanted to try something a little bit different with regards to interviews. Instead of interviewing multiple artists by asking them a series of in depth questions, I decided I would come up with just one question, and ask it to a large number of deviants from different artistic mediums, different backgrounds, different countries, etc. This way, you, the reader, get to discover the insights, opinions and experiences of a huge variety of fellow members all at once. I really hope you guys will enjoy this, last issue got a lot of amazing responses, please let me know if there are specific questions you'd like me to ask in future issues!"Has a life experience affected you so much that even

I Got to Work and Play at DA!Hey guys! Did you like the rhyme in my title? Lie and tell me yes. It's audible gasp time. Two actual journals in less than a month. What is the world coming to? I really just have to share what my trip to Los Angeles was like! I'll make this one as entertaining as possible. CARRY ON!This was my first time visiting Hollywood, first time visiting the west coast period, and--honestly--first time going anywhere west of Pennsylvania. I don't get the chance to travel much. So you better believe I quickly grabbed this opportunity (along with Queen-Kitty, Mrs-Durden, and KovoWolf) to visit DeviantArt's headquarters and hang with staff for a few days to help collaborate and provide feedback on the "new" DeviantArt!NEW DEVIANTART? What?! Yes! You gotta keep reading to get to the good stuff though.I woke up at 4:00 am Sunday (yes, I was dead) and headed to the airport to catch my flight. The views from th
