Photographer of the Week: PiecesOfAnsley
This week's Photographer of the Week is PiecesOfAnsley !
Her work is refreshingly different to traditional still-life photography. Setting her photographs somewhere between vibrant colours and pastel tones, strong compositions and fun objects and a clear love for detail.
It is certainly recommended to go see the rest of her gallery, because there is much more to see than what I could feature here. Go, peeps, NAO!
Congratulations, PiecesOfAnsley !

Photographer of the week: Cochalita
Cochalita receives the Photographer of the Week - award, because her still life compositions are incredibly full of feeling. She takes us on a journey of soft colours, vibrant contrasts and tells us secret stories about everyday objects.
It's those details she pays so much attention to, that make her art so mesmerizing.
Congratulations, Cochalita !
Artistle Features Vol. X: 'Deep in the meadow''Deep in the meadow, hidden far away
A cloak of leaves, A moonbeam ray,
Forget your woes and let your troubles lay
And when again it's morning, they'll wash away.
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.'
- Suzanne Collins, 'Deep in the meadow'
This is a guest feature written by mondscheinsonate instead of AlexanderPaupoff .
The reason for this is, that I recently read the Hunger Games trilogy and was so inspired by the books that I just had t
Wanted: Artists to give live lessonsI've been wanting to adress the community about this idea for a while now, so here I finally go!
The big idea
I'm looking for artists here on deviantART who are willing to share some of their experiences, skills and knowledge with the community.
If you're one of those artists, you might want to consider teaching a live lesson on the chat network!
We (Artistle) want to host regular live lessons by different artists about an artform of their choosing.
The audience will be able to ask questions after the lesson and also get feedback on their work given the artist would like to do so.
Your audience, eager to learn
The whole experience is meant to be inspiring and helpful for both the artist giving the lesson as for the audience.
The lessons can be given with all methods possible; including live streaming, using artworks or sketches as examples and interact with the audience to maybe even create something during the chat event.

Thanksgiving Giveaway - 2000 Points!So, Christmas is around the corner and that means you'll get another package of underwear from your mom. But Thanksgiving (for us folks in the United States - sucks if you live some place in, like, France) means food and something about being thankful for what you have. This isn't about being thankful for what you have. This is pure, unadulterated, shove-people-out-of-your-way greed. I'm giving away 2000 points on the day before Black Friday. I'm sure you want them.

CONTEST PORTRAITS - drawings and paintings :icongroupsplz::iconsoulcollectors:
Hello to all Soul Collectors
I'm sponsoring a contest with the theme "Portraits" at the group Soulcollectors.
What do I want to see? Good art, amazing portraits, all kind of traditional or digital portraits.
But what are portraits?
"Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans or animals that are alive or have been alive."
"Portrait is a likeness of a person, especially of the face, as a painting or a drawing."
- So, can you submit fantasy, an imaginary face?
- So, can you submit a drawing of a body in which we can not see the head?
- And can you submit a full body drawing?
Why you not doctor?"Why you not doctor?"
"You doctor yet?"
If you are an immigrant of any kind, or know people who are the children of 1st and maybe even 2nd generation immigrants, you have heard their parents ask them this question time and time again. It probably made you wonder? "What's the infatuation with being a doctor?" Well, it's not so much an infatuation with being a medical practitioner. It's more a desire that immigrant parents have to want their children to be successful and well respected in the new country.
Growing up, I was a pretty inquisitive child. I love to ask questions, take things apart to see how they worked, and I received good marks in school. Naturally, my 1st-gen immigrant parents took this as a sign of, "she is gonna be a doctor." And frankly, I didn't mind the thought. Science classes were my close favorites next to art classes and I loved reading theories, so the idea of being a practitioner of medicine didn't se

Draw My Diabolik Lovers OC Contest (Update!)Hello~
I have a lot of points leftover. I was thinking about doing commission, but I was suggested by a friend of mine, Project E.N.D from Fanfiction, to do a contest. I admit I am a little excited. I want to see some art of my oc. Also see some awesome artists' work on here as well. I would draw her if I could, but I suck at drawing XD I did before, but it wasn't great.
If you never heard of Diabolik Lovers. It's a Otome game which is later made into anime of a human girl living with six vampire brothers, and must choose one of them to take "care" of her. Basically who will drink her blood. For more info click on this link here.
