Just one word : ENJOY !!!! THE BEST WALLPAPER OF THE MONTH by public votationVisits by @QAuZ MEET THE ARTIST Interview by stellartcorsica Images selection by Ellysiumn This month we spotlight the universe of @elreviae How did you discover Deviantart ? I discovered devianArt many years ago by randomly surfing on the web. I was looking for some nice wallpapers, then I found this awesome web site through my searches on Internet. So I had a very good feeling about the whole presentation of this web site. When have you begun to create wallpapers and why ? Well, I really started to create wallpapers in 2007. At the beginning it was just for a personal use and pleasure, just to put something new on my desktop background for fun. Then I found deviantArt web site and I sent my very first creation to see what was going to happen. Who are you ? Could you describe your personality in few key words, please ? Who am I ? Well, I donít really know! lol ! Iím just a guy who is creating and experimenting some different things on my computer for the pleasure. Seriously, I think Iím a rather shy and discreet person generally. For instance, I donít really like big places with thousand people at the same time! I use to spend times with my good friends and family from time to time but nothing more than that to be honest. Then, I use to work a lot in front of my computerís screen finally. Could you describe your artistic universe ? Thatís a very hard question to me. The thing is, in my honest opinion, that I donít really have a specific universe. I use to experiment many different things through the time and through my moods! I worked on abstract pictures or Sci-Fi ones or retro style creations with different graphic style each time. Surely because Iím curious about all kinds of digital art. Which software(s) do you use ? For a while now I use to work with softwares like 3ds Max, Cinema 4D for the main 3D modelling & rendering phase but around them I work with MakeHuman and Z-Brush to have some more 3D experiences in my process. Then, I should say obviously, I work a lot with Adobe software like Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects to achieve my creation process. What is your major evolution from your beginnings to now? My major evolution from my beginnings is clearly the use of 3D software. It changed everything in my mind and in my main workflow. Also, I started to work with a tablet to add some more details in my creations like painted areas, strokes etc Ö Those were a major evolution to me for sure. What is your favorite topic ? Without hesitation, Sci-Fi in general! Thatís my main topic even when Iím doing some abstract pieces for instance, I always have a Science fiction reference somewhere in mind. 8 What is you favorite palette of colours to work with? Definitely palettes of purple, blue, orange, yellow, red, black. I donít know why I love those colors ? lol ! Those colours are well known of course but they are quite bright and finally easy to manage through my artworks. What or who inspires you ? Honestly, I found inspiration everywhere around me and not only on the Web. Movies, Tv Shows, mangas, adverts, in the nature, in the streets Ö. I think you just have to be an observer first. About who inspires me, well, so many artists around like musicians, singers, matte-painters, concept artists, digital artists, actors Ö. My list is long! What do you like to share with your creations? I really enjoy to share something personal each time like my mood at the time of creation process. Sometime some of my artworks can be very dark for instance or they can be at the opposite, bright and colourful. Do you have rituals, any favorite things for creating better? Which music do you listen to when you you are working for exemple ? For sure yes, I have some rituals. First of all, I use to think about a possible new concept artwork for days before doing it. I really need to put all the pieces together in my mind, from the 3D tools I will use to the post process in Photoshop. I can do this quite well because I already know my personal workflow of course. Another important step is the music obviously. So yes I just canít create without listening to music, thatís life ! lol! Personally I use to listen various bands or artists and different music style, it depends on my mood but I can give few examples like : Devin Townsend, Pink Floyd, Fever Ray, Snow Ghosts, Solar Fields, Fear Factory, The Black Angels, The Blackwater Fever, Retro-wave 80ís bands and original movie sound tracks Ö and many more in my list. What are your passions ? My passions other than creating artworks are playing to the guitar, electric and folk style. It takes a very important place in my life because playing with those instruments is always a wonderful moment. Also, it helps me to de-stress a lot when I need it. Then, basically, I love to go to the cinema with friends and discover new movie experiences and I love to watch Tv-Shows too. Another passion traveling a bit when it is possible of course. If I have time and if I have enough money in the pocket for it! What is your creative process in few steps ? So, first of all, I use to think and to focus my mind on a future artwork concept and idea. It can take few days like that. Then once my idea is quite ready, I start some rough experiments in 3D, basically 3D low-poly modelling first. At the same time, if I need it, Iím looking for textures and photos in my personal stock. The other step is to start the composition with exported 3D rendered elements, I use to work with PNG (with alpha) and JPEG. The final step is to bring all my stuff in Photoshop for the paints, textures, color correction, lights and shadow improvements etc Ö At this point my artwork is not very over, the other thing I use to do is to put aside my artwork for few days then I resume it. Itís a kind of ritual I have for a while, it gives me another regard on my artwork after few days. If necessary, I delete, add or modify some points in my piece before an online publication. Have you got some tips for beginners ? To be honest, I still feel like a beginner even after years of creating artworks! I never stop learning new things on specific software or new technical approach about making digital art in general. My few tips for beginners will be, take your time and donít rush everywhere. Make experimentations of all kind with any kind of software. If you feel better using Blender than C4D or 3ds Max for instance, make your stuff in Blender! Same thing about other software obviously. Practice a lot, no secrets. Actually, we can learn many things on the Web through social networks or specific web sites with great tutorials. Finally, take inspiration from everywhere and not only from the Web !

Wallpapers: Educational Articles

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?
More info here:

All the credits correspond to Stimulant blog, I have simply elaborated the article and adapted for everyone, here in DeviantArt.
One of Stimulant’s specialties is designing experiences on new, next generation hardware. We were recently tasked with designing an interface for a 4K display, and we discover

Let's talk about wallpapers II: What is 4k?What is?
Pure and simple, 4K means a clearer picture. It's more pixels (8,294,400 to be exact)
on the screen at once that creates images that are crisper and capable of showing more details than standard HD.

WHAT IS 4k resolution?

4K resolution, also called 4K, refers to a horizontal display resolution of approximately 4,000 pixels.
Digital television and digital cinematography commonly use several different 4K resolutions.
In television and consumer media, 3840 × 2160 (4K UHD) is the dominant 4K standard,
whereas the movie projection industry uses 4096 × 2160 (DCI 4K).
Think of your TV like a grid, with rows and columns.
A full HD 1080p image is 1080 rows high and 1920 columns wide.
A 4K image approximately doubles the numbers in both directions, yielding approximately four times as many pixels total.
