August 2014Dear friends/watchers
I hope you are all keeping well, I missed by 8th anniversay on DA back in June so I want to thank you for all your support, help, inspiration and advice, I would not be here had it not been of the incredible artists I have come across on this site . It is time I move on to a proper camera but I need your help buying one, I have a budget £500 and my brand of choice is Canon, if you have any suggestions please note me. I am under pressure, my Sister's wedding is less than 4 weeks away and I will need to have mastered my camera by then, If that means going on a crash course then I am up for it!
I apologise for my lack of activity I am snowed under at work and at home, summer is also a dead season for me, I am just glad we are in August, July was most unpleasant and depressing, the hot sweaty commute to work, the sleepless nights, I am looking forward ro autumn.winter!
Apologies for my absence.Dear all
I have been busy over the past two weeks as Im sure so have many of you, I think I might have missed important birthday for which I am terribly sorry, I will try to be around more often this week although the summer period tends to be my most uninspiring time!

Collection: Shine A Light
Shine a Light
Light means so many things in our lives beyond mere illumination.
Cinematographers call the hour just before the sun sets “the magic hour.” Movie producers and directors schedule the shooting of love scenes and other important moments in their script to take advantage of the powerful effect that “magic hour” sunlight subliminally exerts on our psyches. The Dutch master painters of the 17th century were expert in focusing the eye on the “story

Duel of the fates
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
Collection: Celestial Illusions
Back when it was common knowledge that the sun and all the planets revolved around our Earth, the phenomena of solar and lunar eclipses were mysterious and terrifying occurrences. Were the gods unhappy with us? Were these heavenly messages indicating the End of Days had arrived? Emperors and kings often felt a familial connection with the Sun, and so feared its temporary withdrawal from the sky to be a warning of its unhappiness with royal actions. Desp
The Dead Zone
Julien Coquentin The Dead Zone
the dead zone
Julien Coquentin (bwiti) is a French “street art” photographer who captures people interacting with their environments, usually public spaces.
Sometimes the photos are “natural” captures in the moment. Sometimes the subjects are posed to become a part of the scene, sometimes as a comment on or extension of existing atmospheric art in the background, like graffiti (as in his series, “Please Draw me a Wall.”)
Tomasz Opasinski: So You Wanna Be In Pictures
Entertainment Advertising Creative Director
When his dream of one day being Captain of a naval vessel was taken away from him due to his irreparable poor eyesight, Tomasz Opasinski turned to his most powerful talent in life: he could draw and paint. Still in his native Poland, he enrolled in the School of Advertising, taking courses in computers and publishing.
The Polish Navy’s loss was an incalculable gain for worldwide creative arts lovers, especially fans of movies and the innovative movie poste
Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
Deviousness - May 2015
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
My name is Jeffrey Cruz and I'm a Melbourne-based Comic book Artist that goes under the pen-name of 'Chamba'. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, back when I would copy images of Transformers from the back of the toy packaging. That year, my Love for creating art was born.
During my first year of University back in 2003, I was introduced to DeviantArt as part of class task to join an 'online community', something that was very foreign to me. Being part of DeviantArt had allowed me to open up my eyes to the variety of styles that existed beyond my own backyard and of the people who created such works. Throughout the years I've not only made life-long fr
Guy Fawkes Day
Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes
