Art + Design Feature Vol. 02"Great design isn’t just what looks cool, it’s a calculated and balanced blend of form and function that serves a specific purpose. Although, it’s really satisfying when the end result looks cool."
— William Justice
In this series, I'll showcase deviations I found astonishing and/or really creative; and in most cases - why I thought so.
This typeface is one of the most diverse I've ever encountered. With so many different versions of characters, you can create unique and cool slogans and displays.
I'd love to see this fresh and flat reimagination of the UI of WhatsAPP implemented for real!
Also, the mock-up contains super cool humorous easter eggs.
Who wouldn't want tetris sneakers? Seriously now, people!
I especially love the presentation
TeamWork 2014 ! (Extended + TeamWork)You all waited for this moment - TeamWork 2014 is here!
For all those who don't know the project yet, here are some answers to all the questionmarks over your head!
We have extended the sign-up phase for the teachers who haven't yet found a student. Please check out the comments, if you're interested in becoming a student!
Also for the teams that are already matched: Have fun learning and teaching!
What is the project about?
The aim is to team up two artists to achieve a close and individual learning-experience.
One of the two will be the teacher, whereas the other will be the student. (But our teachers will learn through this project just as much, I'm sure )
Teachers will present assignments to their students and provide them with tools, techniques and lessons to achieve the goal they both decided on.
In the end we'll present all the finished assignments in a big chat event and on our group page!
There also might be

Please don't comment on this journal for any other reason than signing up for the project!
Please don't comment on this journal to apply as a student, only reply to already existing teacher-offers in the comments.
If there are no teachers left, please consider teaching someone yourself. It can be a lot of fun and I'm sure everyone has something to teach!

Art + Design Feature Vol. 01 " Creativity is not a talent. It is a way of operating. "
- John Cleese
In this new series, I'll showcase deviations I found astonishing and/or really creative; and in most cases - why I thought so.
To start off, this really cool portfolio theme struck me as very clean and unique. Both the colour scheme and the design elements are perfectly used to make this theme dynamic and fresh.
This amazingly detailed spread shows the process of analog photography neatly. With so many elements on the pages, it keeps good balance and doesn't look cluttered.
I think the designer behind this packaging did a great job. Combining soft and warm colours with simple elements and the very neat logo of the product; this sure is a cool packaging design.
Not only is thi
Photographer of the Week: BlueColoursOfNature
This week's Photographer of the Week is BlueColoursOfNature , whose photographs are refreshing, eye-catching and just really well done.
While I concentrated on finding the quintessence of still-life photos in her gallery, I must say, that many of the rest of her photos really are worth a good second look.
What makes :devBlueColoursNature: 's photography so special is, that she seems to view things differently, which makes the perspective, depth of field and overall feel of her pictures that much more interesting and pretty. Her appreciation for beautiful things is visible through all of her photos.
So, now go check the rest of her gallery out, people!
Feel free to note us if you would like to suggest someone to be Photographer of the Week!

How to get better at artPeople keep asking me what programs i use, and what program is the best for drawing and what brushes i used for this artwork or that. Those are legitimate questions, sure, but not entirely accurate. There are differences between programs and brushes, but in the end, they are all tools. They are tools artists use to put their imagination onto a canvas. Just like a traditional artist can use 10 different brushes to paint an artwork, or just one single brush, digital art is the same in that regard. There is no one brush that can achieve an effect that none other can. Sure it's a little more difficult if you're using one brush type to draw everything, but not impossible. Artists might have hundreds of brushes in Photoshop but in truth, we use 2-5 brushes the most and those hundreds only in special cases. I personally use a hard brush and a soft brush for 90% of things, what i do change is the opacity and turn the pressure on and off, change the size etc.
And the most common

Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.
Now it's just extre
White knightsI haven't spend much time on my computer last weekend, but enough to see that DeviantArt was kept busy by a troll that apparently did really well for as much as trolls can 'do well' on the internet. A little over 4000 pageviews in just 4 days the account is online proved not only the artists involved in the matter took offense... but apparently a lot of other DeviantArt members as well. Even those that seemed (to me at least) totally uninvolved with the troll or the particular type of art.
For those that wonder about the issue; It's about Foxbun's rather cynical joke about the 'closed species' matter. (I'm usually against name calling here. But this account has intentionally created for its goal. It has been all over the site already and would've been in the comments within 10 minutes, even without me mentioning here. I don't provide a link, though. Use your search engine if you want to research it.)
The term white knight is to most older members of DeviantArt (or the interne

Art and overthinkingDear, deviantart fellow artists
There are times when everything goes well, but sometimes It's so easy to let those thoughts (whether caused by fear, life, problems etc.) to overcome your wilingness to do anything. So we let ourselves to get distracted, even though that's not what we really want to do. It's just easier. But we should not let overthinking to stand in our way.
People do tend to overthink all the time. Worrying about unimportant things, while doing nothing about solving actual problems. If there is anything that you think constantly about, that needs to be done - don't put it away till the later. It will only get worse. So often do we regret our decisions in the past, yet we are the only ones who can impact our future.
People also crave for disctractions. That's why probably social media sites are so popular these days. Watching youtube videos all day - It's inspiring to see how other people get success
The most amazing thing happened today!This morning, a guy rand my doorbell and i thought that was a little weird because i wasn't expecting anyone. He said he has a delivery for me with 2 tubes from deviantART. I was really surprised because i didn't remember giving my address (it was such a long time ago that i did probably) or didn't remember ordering anything and only until i opened them did i realize they were print gifts from my wishlist! But i have no idea who sent them :icontearyguyplz: They were both prints of this artwork
and i am not sure if there were too separate people who sent them (they appear to have been sent at different times) or one person. BUT WHOEVER YOU ARE THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU WONDERFUL PERSON!
The prints are amazing looking! Kudos to deviantART because the quality of the print is astonishing the prints are on material not paper and that not only makes them more durable but it also has a very neat oil painting feel to it.
This just made my week! I will
