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

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

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.

Project Educate: An Interview with popoksProject Educate:  An Interview with bebefromtheblock
by lintu47
bebefromtheblock 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

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: GrimDreamArt :icongrimdreamart:

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

This is the most difficult question here. I was thinking about it a lot and I'm afraid that there is no such thing. I could answer, that my artworks defines me, but it would sound like a cliché.

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

A friend of mine, who knew that I like to draw, showed me this site a long time ago. I didn't have an access to the Internet in my home back then, so I had to visit him regularly to browse artworks from deviantART. I joined the community few years later, when I decided, that my works are worthy to show here.

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

In high school. Five times a week I was walking home from school (over 5 km) so I had quite a lot of time for thinking about... everything. I had lots of ideas for interesting paintings but wasn't able to create them because of lack of skills. I decided to gain those skills in an art school and chose Faculty of Architecture as buildings and landscapes fascinated me most.

Mill by GrimDreamArt

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

I have lots of inspirations: fantasy books and games or metal music, but also works of other artists (both "the Old Masters" and those from deviantART). I'm most creative when I'm completely alone and have peace of mind - as simple as that.

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

I prefer not to think about that :) Actually I'm not used to make "plan B" because it weakens my motivation to achieve the goal. Maybe I would be an archeologist. Old, distant cultures are also fascinating.

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

Hmmm... I guess that my miniseries of cathedrals (Cathedral and Cathedral 2) among others because they reflect my style quite well. I can say I had a "glimmer of talent" while creating them because I almost don't remember the process of painting them. I didn't have to make dozens of concept sketches first (like I often do) or develop all the details, etc. They are results of a subconscious thinking mostly.

Red River by GrimDreamArt

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

Rather "plenty" than "any". Each time I show an artwork to a customer or submit it to deviantART, I'm uncertain about how it will be received. On the other hand, when I'm clearly dissatisfied with my work, I do not show it to anyone but burn it in a fireplace.

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

Of course! Art can be a kind of escape from reality just like many other stimulants, but it's not harmful to health. Not mentioning that the wonderful feedback from other deviants lift me up when I have moments of doubts.

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

Pass my driving license. Oh wait, I got my chance but I failed :)

The Being by GrimDreamArt

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Have fun with what you do but... if you treat drawing/painting/etc. seriously, you should be a severe critic for your works. If you are over-enthusiastic about your achievements, you'll never get better. I know some people who were really gifted and they knew it well. They stopped to develop their skills at the age of 20 or 21 (way too early to achieve a mastery).
Compare your works with works made by your idols with no excuses. Yes, it can be painful sometimes but it works (at least for me).

20 truths, 5 lies game results

Fri Apr 10, 2015, 2:52 AM
As i already said in the original journal, in the event that no one guesses all the 5 lies, there will be 5 winners selected via random.org; therefore instead of presenting you the big winner (and the other two winners by drawing), i will show you the five ones that were lucky. And guess what? As usual, no one guessed correctly :stare: Given the fact that there is no winner once again, i will post another "20 truths, 5 lies game" in the future, perhaps then someone will grab the main prize :stare: Here are the false facts:

4 9 10 24 25


The winners of the raffle are: TsunamiClan paperTora LanaDelKing Quintaru SilverAce88 
Proof of the drawing here: Untitled by lintu47. Each won 20 points :points: Congrats and thank everyone for taking part in this game!

Explanations


  1.  It was snowing the day i was born.
    True: What could be more beautiful than a snowy April day? :stare: 
                     
  2.  I often make a deep passion about a song and after the fever is gone i don't listen to it for months.
    True: From a long time ago this is how new songs work for me: i hear them, i like them, i put them, and only them, on repeat, and then i come to a point when i can't stand them. Same goes with food.

  3.  I like to watch various gameplay videos on YouTube.
    True: I watch several youtubers for their gameplays, it's quite relaxing and depending on the youtuber, it can also be funny. Most of the playthroughs/walkthroughs are of games that i can't play because my laptop can't support them.

  4.  I helped proofreading this article about some of the most hilarious Romanian expressions.
    False: Nope, i didn't have anything to do with it, although i have to admit it's funny. I've never really stopped to think how hilarious Romanian expressions sound to other people.

  5.  I have a middle name.
    True: I do, and i hate it.

  6.  My fiancé's name is Vladimir and he's only half Romanian.
    True: His grand-grandparents  came from Russia and up until his father their family kept marrying other Russians who fled from the war and found refuge here like they did, so although he doesn't know the language or has lived by their traditions, he is still theoretically half Russian - half Romanian.

  7.  I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that i live in an infinite universe.
    True: How can i not when all my life i've been living in well defined places with well defined units of measurements? All i've ever touched and came in contact with are finite. All i own is finite. I am finite. You get the point.

  8.  I would like to meet our new president, Mr. Klaus Werner Iohannis.
    True: He is a honest, rigorous man. I respect that.

  9.  The colour that represents me best is blue.
    False: I would have to say red is, not blue.

  10.  I don't like white gold.
    False: I like white gold, it's the yellow one that i don't like. Also pink, i don't like the pink one either.

  11.  I am terrified of talking in front of a crowd.
    True: It's one of my biggest fears and i think many of you can relate. My mouth gets dry, i tremble, my palms get sweaty and i feel hot. It's horrible.

  12.  Only one of my grandparents is still alive.
    True: My paternal grandfather died when i was only five, my paternal grandmother died last summer and my maternal one passed away this January. My maternal grandfather is the only one left, but i fear he won't last very long without his life partner.

  13.  I recently helped in organizing this year's National Congress for Students and Young Doctors, 18th edition.
    True: And i swear i won't do it again lol! Too much stress, too much trouble, too many, hm, people who can't read instructions properly.

  14.  I am sad when i think about how many amazing discoveries i'll miss because i cannot live forever.
    True: This is one of my biggest regrets, not because i can't live forever, but because i won't know what happens after i die. So many things i can't even think of will happen, so many amazing things will be discovered and i will be dirt, unconscious, ignorant dirt.

  15.  I fear anything involving something abnormal/bad happening to my teeth.
    True: This comes as no surprise  having in mind  my past experiences with dentists. I didn't have bad teeth problems, just horrible dentists.

  16.  My cat is part of my family and i treat her accordingly.
    True: I think all people should do the same and if they know they couldn't do it, then just don't have pets. Animals are living things, not objects, and they should be treated with respect and love, cared for like you would want to be looked after if you were in their place.

  17.  I often fantasized about myself being an actor when i was a teen.
    True: I liked pretending i was shot, for some weird reason. Loved those scenes because i thought it was hard to act like you're wounded when you aren't.

  18.  I would love to be able to draw/paint but i get frustrated because i envision this and i end up with this.
    True: It's the same with painting; i'd love to do them both, i just suck at it very badly.

  19.  I sometimes get very emotional when putting myself in other person's shoes.
    True: And it sucks so much at times because i realize how hard other people have it, and i'm just sitting here, complaining about my own life.

  20.  Someone i know is in a TV pharmacy commercial.
    True: She will be a great actress! She is a talented, beautiful young woman and if she continues her work she will go very far in life.

  21.  My cat loves fluffy blankets.
    True: This is a fact well known already by all people who have asked me about my cat :giggle: She is a lady and she loves fine things. My lap is first on her list, then come the fluffy blankets.

  22.  I do not like the way Gordon Ramsay talks (i don't mind the swears but i dislike his tone).
    True: I don't like the way he speaks, it's like he stops after every word he says. I hate that pause.

  23.  I am very punctual.
    True: I am and i get very mad when someone isn't, i think it's a lack of respect.

  24.  I hate the outdoors.
    False: I love nothing more than being outdoors. I grew up in the country side and spent all my days outside. I didn't watch tv, except for one hour show about nature and animals on Saturday and the Grendizer and Sailor Moon episodes.

  25.  I wear a lot of make-up.
    False: I do not, on a normal day i only wear mascara and a bit of foundation if there's a zit i need to cover, and that's it. On special occasions i wear proper makeup, but only then. I hate having to put it on, i don't have the patience nor the fabulous skills other girls posses. If i can't do wonders with my face, i'd rather won't persist cause i don't want to look like a clown.

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

I feel defined as a person by the art I create. Self-expression is very precious to me, it allows me to release the things I feel inside that I may not have to words to properly convey.

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

I found out about deviantART a long time ago - it's been years now, I don't remember how old I was, but I remember using it as a virtual inspirational cork board for a long time before posting my own work up. I found so many artists and so many influential art pieces I wanted to be able to use as a basis for my own work in the future. It's nice to look back and thank the people who got you where you are today by just existing and creating on their own accord.

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

I can't say there was a moment in my life where I wasn't - My Mother was a painter and my Father an engineer. I've been surrounded by art since I was very young and always felt a strong attraction to it.

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

I am honestly inspired the most by bouts of depression, I find that being at my wit's end, in all of my sorrow and pain, creates the most beautifully agonizing outbursts of innovation.

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

I'm not quite sure and in all honesty I don't know if I want to think about it, haha.

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

I prefer that art inspires the viewer - and that I keep my mouth shut about what it means to me. I want people to take what they will from it.

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

I think that everyone does. There is always some aspect of uneasiness when it comes to publicly putting yourself out there - but if I am proud of it, I'd like it to be seen.

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

I use it as a form of therapy. :)

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

If there is anything out there that I want to do, I will do it. There is nothing that can stop me from accomplishing my goals.

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Don't let the negativity of others bring you down. Be proud of what you do, but never stop learning. Don't ever let success get the better of you.

For all Twitch users! Earlier this evening i received the next email: "We are writing to let you know that there may have been unauthorized access to some of your Twitch user account information, including possibly your Twitch username and associated email address, your password (which was cryptographically protected), the last IP address you logged in from, and any of the following if you provided it to us: first and last name, phone number, address, and date of birth." My advice towards you if you also received this is 1) not to ignore it and 2) to change all identical/similar passwords you might have on other accounts.
