DESIGNING VISUAL INTERFACES FOR 4K DISPLAYS
A few days ago, I found  "Stimulant blog" and I was struck by an interesting article about 4k.
I know that many deviants know about 4k but I also know that a large number of deviants have no idea what 4k means in wallpapers and what it implies.
For this reason, I thought it appropriate to contribute to the entire wallpapers community and of course, for everyone who likes to be informed, beginners and advanced.









Do you know the DA Challenge "Devious Desktops: Warm Vibes?

Just one word: ENJOY !!!!,THE BEST WALLPAPER OF THE MONTHChosen by me Ellysiumn,,,MEET THE ARTIST3D & WallpapersInterview by EllysiumnThis month we spotlight the universe of @Asmodios How did you discover DeviantArt?I feel like I have known Deviantart forever. I needed a place to exchange and learn new techniques in digital creations. After testing several platforms, I stopped on Deviantart. I found here a space for exchanges with professionals happy to be able to give advice. So, I stayed.When have you begun to create artworks and why?I started years ago for fun and it has become a passion. Impossible to stop. I like this. Creation gives us the opportunity to represent whatever we want ... it's unique and accessible to all.Who are you? Could you describe your personality in a few keywords, please?Self-taught, unassuming, reserved, coffee addict, insomniac and admiring the works that I discover every day.,Could you describe your artistic universe?I mainly do landscapes. The scenes are more or less realistic, but I try to give them a special atmosphere. I have to spend 70% of my creation time on the light and the atmosphere. I like dreamlike atmospheres while remaining realistic.Which software(s) do you use?Blender, Poser, vue xstream and Photoshop.What is your major evolution from your beginnings to now?I had the chance to interact with professional photographers on Deviantart who taught me a lot of things. My main development is the management of light and cameras. But, I learn new techniques every day.What is your favorite topic?Nature and light. But, I do everything, we must not be locked into a concept or a subject in particular.,What are your favorite palette of colors to work with?Blue and yellow. I often try other colors. But, I always come back to blue or yellow. It's strange...What or who inspires you?Many artists inspire me. Lots of photographers, digital artists, painters.What do you like to share with your creations?The beauty of nature and a feeling of freedom.Do you have rituals, any favorite things for creating better? Which music do you listen to when you are working for example?Before starting, I look at my previous 2 or 3 compositions. I look for errors, inconsistencies. Possible improvements. To do better. For music, I always listen to calm music to be in a serene atmosphere (Sepultura, motorhead, dimmu borgir, carpenter brut, ...),What are your passions?IT development. It is also my job. And share moments of conviviality with my friends . What is your creative process in a few steps?I represent my idea in a simple way and I work on each element. Then on the lights and the atmosphere. But above all, I put my compositions aside for several days before going back to them and deciding if it's finished or not. It's impossible to be objective about something you've just done.Have you got some tips for beginners?Test, try, try, start over, until you have what you want. Look, but don't copy. Take your time. Creation is a game, have fun. Always keep the soul of a beginner.,,,ARTIST SPOTLIGHTThis month... @xnhan00 by @Ellysiumn ,,,,,,,,,,,DAILY DEVIATIONS ROUND UP,Daily Deviations Round UP: January 2021January 31, 2021Hallo !!!
