Photographer of the Week: everythingisaverage
everythingisaverage is an artist with a wide variety of ideas and her style is straight forward, while at the same time capturing the objects and models in a unique, soft and elegant way.
I hope everythingisaverage continues her artistic journey with the same creativity and attention to beauty and detail.
PS: Everything may be average, but her photography certainly goes beyond that.
ArtistleFeatures Vol. XVI: 'If You Forget Me'
Just in time for valentine's day, this feature is all about art picturing love and friendship in all its different forms. I hope you enjoy looking through these and I wish all of you a wonderful time (not just today).
if each day,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.
Photographer of the Week: MirageGourmand
MirageGourmand and mouth-watering food photography should, at least to me, always be mentioned in the same line.
Just look at those compositions, clearly full of little details and well thought-through placing.
It is with great honour, that I bestow the Photographer of the Week award to MirageGourmand .
And now go check out the rest of this feature, and then their gallery!
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 !

Make 2015 awesome!A new year started. So some words of inspiration for those that want to pursue art this year...
Don't worry about your age. Do not get discouraged by those that are younger than you and better. Some people start art when they are 6 years old and are prodigy's at age 16, others make a rather late or slow start. It doesn't matter if you're 10 or 80 years old. You're never too old to learn something new, and you're never too old to do something you enjoy.
Everybody has potential. Even the greatest masters in art started out as beginners. It just takes a lot of time and persistence.
Don't be afraid to fail. Most masters have failed more times than any beginner even tried.
We only see the best from other people, and compare it with our own average. For every amazing painting a good artist puts online, he probably made 100 failed sketches. Sketches you'll never see and you'll never know o
Using HTML on deviantART
Hello and welcome to my little html tutorial. I've been working with html codes for a couple of years and I'm going to teach you what I know about using some basic html on deviantART. This won't make you a html expert or something and I'm not an expert myself but it will give just enough knowledge to make your journals, comments, news articles and other neat and lovely looking.
deviantART actually has FAQs about html but I still wanted to do this because they look a bit unorganized, in my opinion. Also, why would you want to look for those FAQs when you can just open this news article where you have everything in one place?
You may already know some of these, but I hope you'll find at least something helpful in this news article.

Label Me Lesbian: A Guide to Types of Lesbians [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink]
The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there. If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you!
[Bullet; Pink] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Purple] [Pride] [Bullet; Purple] [Bullet; Blue] [Bullet; Green] [Bullet; Yellow] [Bullet; Orange] [Bullet; Pink]

Bestest Friend (DreamingAutumn) and I are back with another contest!
This contest's theme is 'Fairy Tale'! What does that mean? Well, why don't you just ruminate, whilst I illuminate the possibilities...
Simply put, you write something related to "fairy tale", that could be ANYTHING. Want to write your own fairy tale? Go for it! Want to modernize or rewrite the ending for an existing tale, do it!

Free (and cheap) Art ProgramsUpdate: 5/2/2014 - Added Mischief. Dogwaffle, Krita, and SmoothDraw coming soon. Any other suggested programs are on my list to test, thank you for your thoughts.
Photoshop is a great program, but despite it's many features it's a bit pricy at $999. I created this list for people with smaller wallets and certain art needs.
The programs are listed according to what type of art they are best suited for.
Don't know what program will be best for you? Most of the paid programs have trial versions available, download them and see what you like best.
