Art History Project


















Inspiring Digital Artworks       Try browsing dA. Many of the most popular artworks ever are uploaded in Digital Art gallery. Then have a look at some of the most popular digital works in the last hours and compare them to some other popular deviations from different categories. What do you notice? - What i did a long time ago: there's a difference between them; digital artworks usually have more views, more comments, more faves. And it made me wonder "Why is that?" - Is it because many people are fans of fantasy characters and great landscapes? Is it because they enjoy looking at an enhanced figure or at a reality-defying picture?     
        Of course they do, but that's not the only reason. It's mostly because people appreciate good work and stunning details, which are sometimes harder or impossible to achieve through other arts. It is also because this is the medium that imposes no limits to your power of creation - you ca
Interview with *yangtianli
          Yangtian Li was born in China 23 years ago, but moved to Australia to follow her dream of becoming a professional illustrator and animator for games, magazines and books. She agreed to answer a few questions, so let's sit back and take a few minutes to see what she has to say.


Clown Girl
          
What drawn you towards digital art, paintings in particular? How was your first experience with this kind of art and how long ago was it?
       Like many artists, I have always been interested in drawing since a very young age, it was really just a natural thing. I love animation and I've always been watching lots of animations since i was a child. As I grew, I also found huge interest in comics (manga particularly) and games, and these have always been my inspiration. So my goal was always to become a professional artist i
Thoughts about Photography - part 1In here you will find a few examples of works specific to different types of Photography, followed by various artists' opinion about what they think it's most important regarding their art and how to make it. You will come to see that while on some types of Photography many artists have similar opinions, on others their thoughts differ a lot, so read them all carefully and enjoy the article! - lintu47
Abstract & Surreal

AndyDragonPark says: "Abstract Photography is not something people immediately think about when you tell them you are a photographer. Most people ask " do you do landscapes, action, portraits or weddings". The truth is I do all these things but my favourite is Abstract Photography. Many definitions on abtract art will tell you that an abstract is one without a

Architecture



canismaioris says: "The most important in Architectural Photography for me is:1. Finding the right perspective. You should always look for an interesting foreground, first plan can totally change perception. 
2. It's good to use wide angle, show as much as you can, use a wide angle lens or make panorama, but this trick doesn't work in every case and situation.

pestilence says: "Photography, combined from the Greek words, Φώτο - γράφω, writing with light, as the above sentence suggests the pure essence of photography is light, without light there can be no photography. I have been asked many times what are the details of a good capture, what are the elements that compose a good pictur

Project Educate: An Interview with popoksProject Educate:  An Interview with popoks
by lintu47
popoks is an inspiring artist living in Germany with one of the most colourful galleries on dA that I’ve ever seen. Her stunning skills and creativity are a source of inspiration to all photographers around. Aside from her well known photos, she also draws, although photography remains her primary way to express her artistic side. I had the luck to be able to interview her last week and below is what I’ve found out.


1) If you could bring one deceased legendary artist back to the current time, who would it be and why them?
Johann Sebastian Bach & Kurt Cobain (because 2 is better than one), although I think it's not necessary to bring a deceased legendary artist back to the current time, since Clint Eastwood and Anthony Kiedes are still around.

Anne is an inspiring member of our community that makes a difference here every day. Her modesty and dedication towards the community are a source of inspiration for all the people on dA. She was kind enough to find the time to answer the questions for this interview. Enjoy!

1) Tell us a few words about yourself.
I am Anne from Hamburg in Germany and currently Community Volunteer for Text & Typography on dA. That means I set DDs from Traditional Art > Typography and Digital Art > Typography.
When I am not on dA I work as a webdesigner.
As you can guess, I love Typography. But I also love chocolate and spring and gather any random information I can get.

2) How did you found out about dA and why did you join the community?
I found dA because I was looking to Photoshop Brushes :B I hear that is quite a common thing to happen :lol: I used

by lintu47
Talty is an amazingly talented artist who does wonders in turning her imagination into reality with her skilled hands. She’s in Mexico, so any passionate traveller or anyone living there should pay her a visit at some point and then prepare to be amazed. I asked her a few questions about what she’s doing and I  really hope you’ll find her answers both inspiring and helpful. Enjoy!



1) Tell us a few words about yourself and the art you're practicing.
I'm Talty, I live in Mexico and I'm studying university. I love cats, food and miniatures! My work revolves around polymer clay, I mostly do miniature food but I also do jewelry and I'm trying to expand into different figurines.

PE Interview with =agnes-cecileSilvia is, without any doubt, one of the most marking figures of this site. Many thousands love her works and some artists consider her to be the role model of their artistic life. Instead of rambling about how she is a popular figure of this site, i decided to show you what other people think of her.
Green-EyedGhost says: "Her art is inspiring, emotional, brilliant, incredible, indescribable. Her every single work is what actually can be called art. She always inspires me, she is the most amazing artist I've ever seen in my life!"

airheadOMer completes: "...she has a brilliant and copious use of color. All her work is very intricate and lavish while remaining fairly luminous and simple. It has a wonderful flow to it and is, basically, quite beautiful. She has ineffable talent and her work shows that."
With this being said, let's see what agnes-cecile has to say!
You are a very succ
PE Interview with *SoulOfDavid and *mashamaklautDavid is an amazingly talented artist who works wonders using only editing programs... With Photoshop, he portraits some of the most famous celebrities in a way that makes you wonder, are these really paintings, or photographs?

Maria is one of the artists that made themselves noticed on this site through their hard work and incredible attention to details. Her works, both digital and photographic, are of the highest quality. 
These great artists have something in common: they both used to paint traditionally and now they both adopted the digital style. Let's meet them :heart:


You are both successful artists, what do you believe are your most important qualities that made you stand out?
David: I think my style. I'm using Photoshop CS6. It's a new technique, not mentioning my e
PE Interview with =Aida-ArtInna is a young talented artist who paints... digitally! Her personal quote is "Impossible... but doable" and this can also be seen in her works, where she achieves pure awesomeness!


You are a very successful artist, what do you believe are your most important features that made you pop out of the crowd?
That’s a tough one  Personally I think the most important thing is that you need to love what you’re creating. Always put your heart and soul in your creations and make them for yourself, not for public. 

What do you want to express through your artworks? What inspires you the most?
The answer is really simple – my soul. I always express my vision of beauty through my artworks. Beauty is everywhere and I capture it the way I see it. 

In your opinion, the quality of your art depends more
PE Interview with ~ScorpionEntityIulian is an inspiring photographer that i had the honour of meeting in real life. He's on deviantART for more than 6 years now and i got him to answer us a few questions, so you can meet him too!


You are a very successful artist, what do you believe are your most important features that made you pop out of the crowd?
I don't consider myself talented, I practice a lot and still try to improve. First of all, I started photography by doing lots and lots of shot, and those got the attention of the public I might say. In time, I've perfected the concepts, editing, composition etc, but the idea still stands.
I try to do something different with all shots, and the photo sessions to be different from one another.

What do you look for in your models? What qualities do you appreciate the most in them?
Expression is the key to success. Also, the eyes. I believe the eyes are the d
PE Interview with =jane-beataI won't even try figure out how to present Jana, because, as her friend, my opinion only may not impress you, so i'm going to present to you what others think of her and her art:
13-realpeople-42-333: "She makes some of the best art pieces I've ever seen. Really inspiring."
Marts-NZ: "Her work is just amazing, i love coming back to see the immense beauty she creates."

InsomniaSquared: "Her art makes me feel like I've been kicked in the face by a unicorn dancing in a meadow of pansies and fairies. What I meant to say is: really excellent art!" (this is the most original comment i've ever read!)
Aside from praising her amazing skills and works, i will add that she's also a wonderful person, kind and involved with the community, always wanting to spread the dA love to everyone she meets.


First, please introduce yourself to those that might not know you yet.
Interview with ~yuriko-shirouMargarita is a mexican artist that has amazing skills and talent towards traditional art! Her works are brilliant and deserve a closer look, it would be a shame not to stop by to see the works she put so much soul into.


First, please introduce yourself to those that might not know you yet.
Hi everyone! It’s a pleasure, my name is Margarita Luna but I prefer to be named Yuriko. I’m 25 years old, I’m mexican and I am an illustrator. I’m working to be an art professor someday and to do art books as well. Painting and illustration are my biggest passions and I wish to dedicate my whole life to them. 

You are a very successful artist, what do you believe are your most important features that made you pop out of the crowd?
Thanks, I still don’t consider myself successful, so it’s a little difficult to answer but imagining I could be, I c

Interview Puzzle    Hello fellow deviants! It's been a long time and no articles for this wonderful project from my part, so i decided it's time to pop up with something new! My last articles here were in fact interviews and since i'm told you love the artists i interview, i thought: why not bring you more within the same article? But not whole interviews, that wouldn't be original and would be way too long, wouldn't it? Instead i will bring you one artist per question and two of their representative works. Enjoy!

    The-Longfall-of-1979: Tell us, what defines you as a person?


   That is a good question. I don’t believe it is any one skill or trait that defines me — however I’ve made the best effort to listen to my life and see the mystery that it is. In the boredom and pain of it — no less than in the excitement and gladness. I’ve learned that for an artist, it

I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!


Interviewed artist: Aloony89 :iconaloony89:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

My name is Allen (Allen Adnan), born in Shaqlawa, Erbil in northern Iraq, moved to Ankawa to finish my education in College (Food technology in college of Agriculture) in my senior year. A friendly person; I can be a good friend, passionate about art in general in love with sunlight.

:bulletyellow: How did you find out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

Searching for Inspiration I guess, I loved the diversity of artistic stuff in DeviantART and that's what makes it a good place to get my Inspiration from, make new friends, share my artistic side and Improve myself of course.

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

Back to 2007, when I moved to Ankawa I used to work in a cultural society as web administrator, and had my hand on a camera they used to cover their events and activities,  and because I was coming a bit earlier to work it was about 5:30pm, a garden view was in my front of me - one day I gave It a try and went out and captured a series of photos generally for roses and converted them to black & white. What's important to be mentioned is that a particular photo draw more attention than others and many people liked it, since then I discovered my passion toward photography in general.

The Cobbler by Aloony89

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

At first, an hobbyist Iraqi photographer inspired me a lot - I love his works, I also love watching movies, reading magazines, and after catching up with DeviantART I found plenty of stuff to get inspired by. So I decided to buy me a Camera and it was Nikon D90 with its kit lens and a (50mm f/1.8 D) lens since I like to take portraits. I feel super excited to take photos in lazy mornings, day offs, sunny afternoons and cloudy days.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

I'm still a hobbyist but taking photography as a profession is in my consideration. Probably a wedding photographer or a celeb photographer.

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?

Hmm, a street view I took from above the bridge, What goes around comes around - I loved the mood and it was inspired by Tobias Koch, I loved the angle & the symmetry. It's my favorite. Since it has sort of a motion in it and the title fits the photo I guess, I intended it to have a vivid color and deep contrast, making it more movie like scene.

Untitled by Aloony89

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

Yes I have, since I am still an amateur photographer and I have my own doubts toward my work, I always wanted to do my best to achieve the results that I wanted. And I guess everybody should be somehow; in the past I was unsure where I want to go with my work.

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

Yes, it helped me to see thing differently and think creatively.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

Yes, traveling most probably since I'm busy with studying & working at the same time.

Burst by Aloony89

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

I would like to thank my followers who admire my work and pretty much everybody who's been a source of inspiration for me and supported me. Doing any type of Art is a beautiful way to express things in life. It will certainly improve you and the way you think. Regards from Iraq!

How dA feels like right now

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 23, 2014, 9:43 AM


Y'all know that i've been missing from dA big time this year. I came back with a positive attitude but when i saw all the changes made around here my reaction was:


 .

Hooray for my first gif though - i decided to use gifs in my journals from now on. That, by the way, was Tyler Oakley. I might slightly abuse him today. Back on the topic though. Let's get started!




While i was away changes were made to the site, which is cool i guess, it gives the feeling that we're moving forward. BUT... what the hell happened to the community?! I've been reading journals from people i admire and/or are/were so involved in the community and i thought "well, it's cool that i'm not the only one feeling it, it means i'm not crazy, but... wtf?" I have been stalking the DDs and i noticed peoples' enthusiasm is almost gone, few congratulatory comments, even fewer comments that are not plain copy-pasted (comparing to one year ago). This is just the tip of the iceberg. People don't thank so much anymore. It's not the comments per se, it's about what's behind it.

This community, right now, lacks enthusiasm and seem to take everything for granted. It's not just a feeling of mine, but of many others like me. Some people seem surprised when i comment on their works, like they didn't expect people to comment, just fave and run. And that's ok to some degree, but what is the extent of this trend exactly? When did people stop being involved and supporting? As someone who is here and does things for the community, i feel like a minority, as an outsider.




I remember how hard it was for me to get noticed in the beginning - imagine how a newbie feels now when it seems like no one's giving a shit about them. There are people that do care and do try to help, problem is, they are fewer than one year ago in a constantly growing community. The ratio is bad. There are old (small) communities that still go strong today here - support groups, other groups of various interests, but when you leave that bubble of known people, how many feel comfortable saying "hi, how are you?" to a complete stranger? Or starting a small talk about who knows what? I get that we're busy and always looking just at the covers of the books because we don't have the time to take a look inside, but here is more than meets the eye. Someone might just need a feature to brighten their day, others might need to talk to someone.

I know life can get sucky and i know there are people who will always smile regardless of how they feel. I know that we, those who are still active in this field, can't save them. But we can make them feel included and so, help them save themselves. I'm not specifically talking about depression, it's also the insecurity, the feeling of not being noticed or not belonging anywhere. I miss the people who left dA and used to be everywhere, making constructive things for us all. I miss the many community projects. We also need to inspire people to better themselves and pass it on to others. Where is that? How is this going to happen if there will be no community spirit? Don't tell me it isn't as dark as i see it cause i ain't the only one.




This is still going but not because there are enough people left to fuel it, it's because of what was done before. It's a kind of residual energy, let that burn down and we'll find ourselves complete strangers to a place we used to love and belong to. I already feel distanced, disconnected. Let me be clear, this didn't only happen while i was away or because i was away (lol), it started before that, it's just that now i can see it clearly. dA, as an art site, needs a strong community; without it it's just an advanced Google. You might say:




Uhmm

Well, you should, solely because you are part of it, everything else is secondary to that. I don't think there is no hope left because i'd underestimate the power united people hold - right now, i just think we have forgotten what truly matters and that we are not entitled to anything. Nothing in life comes free, this is why each and everyone of us should lend a hand and be grateful for every favourite, every llama, every friend we have here. We should not forget we are who we are because at some point we met someone who we looked up to and tried to be as good as they were - if they are not around anymore, then we should step up and be the next model. Remember the impact that person/action had on you and ask yourselves if you want to keep it to yourselves or would you rather make an impact on others as well? This is what community spirit means to me; what does it mean to you? What do you think needs to be done?

I would now like to ask each and everyone of you who have had enough patience to go through this journal to pass its essence on; maybe it will inspire some people to get involved. So... what are you waiting for?






How dA feels like right now
1 cat, 1 Snape, 1 Harry Potter and 4 Tyler Oakleys. Sounds good enough to read?
