As the title suggests, this news article's goal is to spread the dA love into everyone's heart! You will find here a little bit of everything, from awesome interviews with talented artists, art features, group promotion to random deviants' features. I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!
Tell us what defines you as a person.
This is a tough question.
I think everyone I've met, everywhere I've gone, everything I've done defines me as a person. My life and experiences define me. How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?
I was introduced to deviantART by a friend back in September of 2008. It took me a few months to actually use it properly though.
I joined the community because I had no choice. It is addictive, and once you make friends here and connect with the community you can't really leave. When and how did you discover your passion for art?
I only found my passion for art upon joining this site. Sure it was a part of my life during my childhood, but I've come to appreciate it more here. I don't necessarily consider myself an artist, but collecting and sharing art is my passion. What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?
Music inspires me the most, and my creativity is at it's maximum when I'm listening to music. Music is a powerful piece of artform - and even certain musicians inspire me. What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?
I honestly have no idea.
I could not imagine my life without deviantART. What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?
Probably this one: Magnetic I
. I was on an outing with my siblings and my father. We travelled across the sea to a nearby island. It was our last major outing before he moved towns.
I suffered from motion sickness because the boat we were travelling on kept on rocking. So it wasn't the best outing we've had. Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?
All the time. I never think anything I do is good enough. I submit them, but with so many doubts. Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?
Yeah, when I'm browsing art on dA it can really bring my mood up. It's amazing how art can change one's mood, whether it's creating or browsing!
I really recommend it to anyone who is feeling down at the moment. There are some fabulous deviations out there waiting to turn that frown upside down. What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?
I think Photography is one thing I really wanted to try. I have taken photographs before (such as the one above), but it was just with my father's camera. Photography is such a beautiful form of art. A few words for our fellow artists?
I've used these two quotes for quite a few interviews and this one will be no exception. I keep these quotes with me all the time:
"Ignore all hatred and criticism. Live for what you create, and die protecting it."
"You have to be unique, and different, and shine in your own way."
Both were said by Lady Gaga.
To Those That HateTo Those That Hate
Many things that Man may take
Can keep him sound and strong,
But everything is poison
Should it linger there too long.
Mercury is nasty stuff,
And Strychnine makes one ill,
But hatred is a poison
That makes one sicker still.
Every nasty chemical
One finds upon a shelf
Mankind can find in small amounts
Deep inside himself.
As those who bite a bitter fruit
Must question why they ate it,
So those who scorn and curse a thing
Should question why they hate it.
Last Night's Rain
Wet roses, sick with heavy rain,
Left from last night's slumber,
Smoking the breath of new days.
Swirling crimson sun, turning
Clouds kaleidoscopic in
Burning, dark rhythm.
Let the dew drip full of weight.
A whole morning magnified,
Inverted through liquid orb.
Solidify fiery decay.
Capture the meaning absorbed
Within chaos and abstraction.
In a glistening pool of water.
Lake akin to the forest fire,
Stiller, staying lower,
Ripples investing height
Upon the next day's shower.
"too close"you said
you wanted the truth
so i told you
that you were fucking scared
because i have a body
that electrifies when it gets close to you; pulls
you into a magnetic field, stitching together
the only body your body
was that with water.
how can you
fool attraction when lightning dances on
the surface of my chest
when i'm with you, when you're
and how can you deny
the static pulse
of your heart when i blend
into the seam of your jeans
you don't even notice me; that together
we cast off like
space explorers, mining the gold of
the black abysmal feat, brushing the dust
of nebulae from our
our bodies frolic like the storms of
jupiter, rapid in motion as
they twirl and electrify the galactic night
'too far' is
where you stand, seats away (miles
when counting the footsteps i've
'too close' is not close enough.
when will you let go
of the fear
The Good, the Mad and the IndifferentThe Good, the Mad and the Indifferent
La Cafe Asienne
Good, I will always be
Regardless of how "they" are
Be certain; that only I am me.
An original person by far.
Being 'bad' never enters my mind;
To Karma and others, I am not blind.
They are never so far away that I can't see.
Mad, I may be at some time.
But I am not clinically insane.
I may indulge at crazy play;
But blood still runs to my brain.
I can't be sure of others' minds;
Whether they don't care, or they are really blind.
But nonetheless, they can't be me.
And through it all, I remain
Detached from the whole fucking game.
I am indifferent.
The Sun and The Moon
The never ending love story,
Of the sun and the moon.
The moon is always chasing,
But forever lives in gloom.
The moon without the sun,
Is as dark as black,
The sun lights up his eye,
And gives his heart an attack.
But the sun doesn't move,
For she knows the true fate,
Of the disaster it would cause,
If they were soul mates.
So the sun doesn't tempt
The moon with his cold,
She just keeps beaming down,
Lighting up the world.
It's an eternal chase,
Which can never be undone.
So the moons heart,
Is always burning for the sun.
because you're an explosionmy summer was one filled with rain. rain on the windows and rain inside of my head and
rain on the inside of my eyelids and rain on my cheeks. there was a constant thunderstorm
between our fingertips, even though they were constantly kilometers apart. I didn't get to
see a lot of you, but I sure got to feel you often. you were under my skin and tangled in my
veins like a bird in a fishnet. and I wanted to set you free but I couldn't untangle you
without injuring myself, so I left you there and with every move you made I ached and
whimpered. but I wrapped my arms around the chest that contained you and whispered it'd be
is a friendly group with the purpose of promoting art that deserves more attention, exposure and love! The group wants to create more interaction between the deviants.
As such, all of you are invited to participate in the group by suggesting works or features from other deviants to be put into this group's gallery collections or features. Every media is welcome!
Lost in TimeShe opened her eyes to pitch darkness. She patted herself down, to see what came with her. Shirt? Still on. Skirt? Still on. Good. She checked her pockets. All she had was her zippo, not even her smokes made it.
She flicked the lighter. Gilding on columns, vases and jars, and in panels glittered around her.
Where did she land?
The light flashed off a hanging lamp. She quickly lit it and shone the brighter light around the room.
Behind her were brightly coloured draperies surrounding a bed. The patterns were all oriental, from the old orient. She approached the bed, only slightly scared about who she might see there. His eyes snapped open just as the light showed his face. She stumbled back, recognizing him from paintings she'd studied.
"Guards!" he called in Cantonese.
She looked for an escape, but the guards were already circling her. Two grabbed her arms and dragged her from the Emperor's bedroom.
They took her to the prison and shoved her in a cell. Racking her brain, she tried to t
Forest StormThere was a tree in a faraway forest that knew just a little more than those around it. As it grew, it became aware of the winds in its leaves, and the squirrels on its branches. It felt pain when the caterpillars feasted and happiness when the hatchlings hatched.
The area was particularly known to have harsh weather. The odd storm passed through, but nothing too severe, nothing that everyone couldn't hold on for.
One day, a freak storm rolled through. It lasted hours.
The tree felt the electricity pound the ground; it felt the tinglings of it find its way up the tree's roots. The sensation wasn't pleasant. The tree felt pain as trees who’s roots it twined around were ripped from the ground. It felt the bird's nest fall from the tree and the eggs get crushed at its base.
When the storm passed, the tree sent out its feelings. Few older trees had survived. Few nests had survived. The butterflies, new from their cocoons had been pounded into the ground with the rain
The tree knew i
MarriedShe shivered in the strapless dress as a nervous wind wrapped around her. Her eyes were locked on the end of aisle made by lawn chairs.
The first of the groomsmen stepped out of the backdoor of the house, carefully walking down the aisle. They found their spots next to the notary they'd hired. The girls looked splendid in their tuxes She locked her eyes on the back door again.
The door creaked open. The sun shone down in her joy, lighting the young woman stepping through the doorway.
She was glorious in her tuxedo, hair tied back in a pony tail. She stepped slowly down the aisle. When she made it to the notary, she reached out and clasped her fiancé’s hands.
The notary smiled at both of them. He looked at the young woman in the tux. "Do you have your vows?"
"Yes," she said. She cleared her throat and smiled nervously at the girl in front of her. "The moment I laid eyes on you, I knew you were special. We hit it off right away, and your smile lit my life. I promise, Cat, fro
