Internetz
I've been having some issues with teh internetz again and it's bugging me out; there've been too many bugs around lately that's for sure!
Anyway, for the good and the better; thumbsup! :thumbsup:

Artcollective features

The last quarter of the year traditionally means a lot of international digital artcollectives launch new chapters/releases/experiments/packs/..
Indeed, we've been totally spoilt in the previous weeks.
Check out the following already jubilated, but not less recommendable releases:

  • Depthcore XXXVII - Freestyle
  • Slashthree 12 - "Steampunk"
  • Hit me up if you're part of an art-collective that you think should be featured!
  • CALENDAR DAY : 30 NOVEMBER 2009 Director of communityops, fourteenthstar, hit us up with the following announcement: "Following on from last year's 1st Calendar Day, I'm here to give you all a heads-up that this year's event will take place on MONDAY 30TH NOVEMBER.
    This will be a day where we fill up the Daily Deviations with calendars from every gallery, which are available for sale in our store."
    YES, this means I want to see, hear, feel, smell,...well, just let me notice you have a calendar that you believe appeals for this! Take it all the way to nail that special DD-feature :turbopoke: Wait, what are you waiting for? :-) :eager: GO CRAZY FOR THAT DD! note: As usual, the following photomanip-requirements apply:
    • Artist's last DD must be longer than 3 months ago
    • All works in the calendar must have stock-credits
    • Check Daily Deviation Guidelines* when in doubt

Attention! Features! Ikea! 2012!

Sat Nov 14, 2009, 6:36 PM


Attention!
I've been out recently and receiving quite a lot of calls for attention, support, feature requests,...
I believe it's my task to thoroughly keep an eye on what's going on inside the gallery and spend time on every aspect that's calling for action. I'm also working hard on the creation and establishment of a new calendar-system that allows us to double the amount of hours we can spend on our stints; but that's another story.

Anyway, "How will deviants find the right path that leads to my gallery?" is a question that's grown to be cliché to the max, nevertheless it keeps repeating itself and so should the proper answer, in my humble opinion.

  • Be the best deviant you can be: explore the world on DeviantArt like you want dA and its residents to explore you(rs). Paying attention to others most likely will increase traffic to your work. Mind to not just splash out comments for the sake of it; become part of a valuable community system and -spirit by submitting thoughtful yet constructive, supportive feedback. Opinions may differ, but make yours worth taking into account.
  • Put effort in your work: Lóts of effort. Impressive works are the result of an evolution in enhanced technique, vision, control of concept and visual intelligence. Focus on what's going on in contemporary art, on trends that passed by, articles and tutorials about them. Think about how to make your work original whilst being aware of these appealing elements. Mastering certain techniques frequently used is good, but develop your own style with the level of execution apprenticed.
  • Submit, enter, credit & shine: Submit your work the proper way. Uploading it to the right category might be pleasing to dA; it's not enough to capture the beholding eyes wanted. Be smart by adding the appropriate tags to your deviation, these filter out the works in the browsing-section. "My dog ate it" isn't going to be a helpful tag for an image displaying a redberry-cupcake (f.i.).
    Credit those who are entitled to it. Stock-images push you forth a great deal, so make sure you use them according to the owner's legal requirements and restrictions.
  • Enter contests: It cannot be stressed enough: seek highlights by entering contests displaying your work(s). These will also help you putting reality into perspective. Why was the result successful/disappointing? Find a momentum and keep it up, try improving yourself on every occassion. At all times, look around you and the results of your creativeness: how is it relating to those of your fellows as for originality, quality, popularity? Don't be tempted to copy styles upon that process; remind yourself to keep the focus on personal and unique twists. This will keep your work in the running for long-term success.
  • Be here for the long(er) term: Patience is the virtue. As in all stories, those who persist rate as candidates more likely to succeed. Just keep doing your stuff, along with the evolution through community feedback; be open to others and grow some elephant's skin where needed. Not all DeviantArt's residents, sadly, are coming on twice as nice. Binary communication is a tricky one that can often lead to misunderstandings and quarrels initially unintended. Steer away from that aspect affecting your spirit, and above all: keeping you from being creative - as that is what it's all about in the very first place. Your work should be doing most of the talking.
    Not dropping out and maintaining that good ol' art-community-spirit; it's going to be mighty rewarding in the long run!

So it's been a wacky 31 dayz for a tenth of an even wackier -good lord i'm just throwing in words i pretend exist- year!
A hard thing to admit is that i've missed quite some happenings here and although that doesn't make it less so; it's not entirely true.
I've been around watching the community play around, with an air of freshness and a growing tension towards this very scary day.
Some years ago this Halloween-mania arrived in Europe too (must've been by a scary boat or flying scissors) and i think it's just charming; but that's right about all there is to it for me. Every day's scarier than the one preceding it anyway :-)

Many have opened windows; reveiling fascinating self-triviae as part of this month's Promotional theme.
I've kept myself from it, but since i'm kind of a bending weirdo; i'll chip in some last-minute too :B

Some bits 'n bytes about
  • I lead a quadruple life as freelance graphic&webdesigner, maître d'hôtel, secret agent and, yours truly, gallery mod at dA.
  • I'm narcistic, egocentric, ambitious, cautious, bad to the bone and highly melancholic
  • I'm never serious when it comes down to being so, call me a protagonist of the anti-system!
  • Smoking is a very bad habit i feed, drinking will never become an issue but i love special beers (you gotta empty the glass your country fills best), and i dig the Roll in Rock 'n - oh I can go deep when distortion meets finely touched strings, M'me
  • To hell with Fibonacci, I work with my own mathematical system. When applying gradients, opacity and various other effects, i let the following numbers shape things up: 8, 23, 32, 41, 69 and 84. Cut me in if you'd win the lottery with those!
  • I never panic, which one day will undoubtly lead to a neurotic breakdown
  • Before falling in love with the image as source of art; i wrote proze, lyrics and strange poetry; well, all of 'em were quite odd.
  • I've got the hots for pony-tails in summer and black curly hair (no, not thàt ones) in other seasons.
  • Staying out of bed for too long makes me say awkward things


Yep, that about wraps it up for now!


Stay tuned for FEATURES coming up later today!
Save monkeys, shoot them into space!

Support Sander-Seto!

Tue Oct 27, 2009, 7:31 PM


Support Sander-Seto

Terrible news has reached us at dA, regarding Sander-Seto's ultimate familycore.
His mother is in hospital again, after suffering a third heart-attack in a very short period.
I'd like to see some mass-support for this incredible young man; being it brief comments, contributed art, or any kind support you can think of. I know he's really going to appreciate it to the max.. :thanks:

  • Hang in mate!
  • :thumb93898110:


I've become an astronaut
Some of ya pro'ly noticed i've been quite biting the inactivity over the last days. For the moment i'm working on the satellites that circle around my planet of chaos; if you can think of commissions and clients as being outer-space, that is. And well, a 120,000 foot-pile of work being the planet.
Anyway, i'm decomposing but will be back at full force very shortly. There's no way an alienation's going to deprive me from the love around here! Death to malafide invasion!
Roar!

Bear with me here; and don't forget to give Sander that big shout..

A kiss from my hot lips to y'all :kiss:

#Photomanipulation
  • I got this note from the lovely bitchinblack with a rather interesting question...So i decided to post a poll and forum-thread on my profile, to find out if the addition of a :groups: for our gallery would be something worth the stretch...
  • Well, speaking about one màssive YES! I was in :aww: , to notice such incredible amount of (neo-)support.
    So- so far so good; the official release of :groups: isn't far away at all, i'm taking this collective shout into account for the campaign.

  • Q: "Is there going to be an official #group for Photomanipulation?"

    A:  Mòst definitely, or i'll chop off any chosen bodypart (tbd which and who's by a future poll that'll never be posted) :-)

SO it's that time of year: flora's starting to develop the most wonderful colours; smelly children starting new endless days on rough desks -hopefully getting as creative on them as possible; where upon i must advise removable ink or pencil- , the first shops displaying this year's christmas-decoration start to -disgracefully- appear...BUT; as many are forced inside given the factors mentioned above; ppl start getting ever so creative! And there's time! Aaah yes :dance:

Note: i regret having used the term "smelly" as adjective on children. I agree a certain yet small percentage of today's children will be the leaders of tomorrow. Undoubtly those with a fair amount of lust and affection for the photomanipulation gallery!



Also; for the person(s) interested in contributing ideas, pointing out terribleness,...yeah, i'm nearing a satisfactory result as for my online presence. Next up will be updating the content with fresh! work.

The young lads of DigitalFlow.org have recently released a new artpack. I highly recommend the stretch to have a look into it!


Photomanip Stamp Collection</b>

Photomanip Stamp Collection by Destin8x
Turned out to be quite the boomer, but i was wondering upon submitting the goodies as a downloadable zip-file, if it wouldn't be better to upload each stamp, so to make it more li(n)k-able for use in journals e.g. Well that's actually the stupidest question to "the self" in a heck of a long time. I mean: it's easy for me, having serverspace all over and familiar with CSS; and if anyone was in desperate need of it as linkable :thumb:, the question shall raise itself.

Note: I defo need to save the thinking first, then write the journal content

It has been a unique month with overloads on work, emotions, things to learn, devious fun, hot smexyness, mjaaass support [:heart:!] which i all took with the greatest appreciation and dA-love.

The Daily Deviations that were awarded this month are a mix of excellent suggestions along with works that did something to me, evoked a feeling, brought up a concept that was worth the stretch.
Behold and keep bringing 'em up!

I never was a freakishly avid reader, a short spell in which i ate nearly all Stephen King novels aside, and like me a big number of artists exist.

There however came a turning point when my love for the image combined with the use of language really started kicking and so i began looking for books rather than splashing out on silly hats.

Over the last two -or so- years, on every scary walk out in the open of the citylife, i found a warm haven in small hidden corners of megalomania-bookstores...and as such, a collection began.

There's the fact books have a price to change ownership, but one can just stare at computerscreens for so many hours; and investing in a collection of some kind, is most valuable resource in our branch.
Being it Graphic- or webdesign, illustration, photography, or any other; having a pile, stack or -well yes i only véry recently placed all of them nicely on- a shelve undoubtly helps one finding the right directions when time is a factor, when the sake of endless browsing becomes forsaken.

For free, with recommendation to several branches, and with a pinch of pride i'd like to present my collection in its current tally of 18 :
