deviantMEET Paris v.36 : Report !Hey hey hey !
Samedi dernier à eu lieu le deviantMEET Paris 36ème édition!
Cette édition marque le retour du devMEET Paris après quelques mois de break indésirable.
Pour cette édition nous avons visité le Musée des Arts Décoratifs et tout particulièrement l'exposition "La mécanique des dessous"!
Exposition très intéressante, regroupant des dessous insolites et certains plus classiques que nos chers ancêtres portaient quotidiennement!
Ainsi nous avons pu voir l'évolution entre le 15ème et le 21ème siècle des corsets ou bustiers, des fraises, faux ventres ou bien encore des rembourrages de braguettes !
Le clou de l'exposition fut l
Everything has an end ...Hey guyz !
As you can see yesterday was my last day as a Community Volunteer...
It was a really awesome experience, I've been able to meet so many awesome persons, to find some awesome artworks and unknow artists...
I'm really sorry for my lack of time those last months ...
I've tried to be as much as possible on deviantART to reply to comments/notes and to set daily deviations but I wasn't able to make as many journals and news as I would have love to do ...
The deviantART community is really amazing and full of awesomeness, it's a real experience itself, and I'm really proud of the being able to have this CV experience.
I would love to thanks a lot $Moonbeam13 for her awesomeness and her real kindness even in hard times!
Thanks to $namenotrequired for his help as my CV mentor...
I want to thanks all the deviantART community volunteers for their kindness everytime and all the fun we had together !
To all the deviantART staff for giving me the chance to enjoy this year ...
My last project is now released !Hey guyz !

Now at SurfExpo (Orlando, Fl) the 09/06/13 LiquidForce has revealed their news gears for 2014, and my two boards !

Meet the Fractal Community #10 Hey everybody !
Welcome to the tenth edition of Meet The Fractal Community !
In few words, Meet The Fractal Community is interview with an artist of our beloved fractal community.
This week let's have a closer look to `lindelokse!
First of all , please introduce yourself to the community.
My name is Chiara, I'm a young architect from Italy and I'm a pathological Apophysis addict. I love art, nature, 80s music, fantasy, dogs, fat animals, action movies, and I greatly enjoy being immature.
Tell me how to call you? Do you go by your Name or an artistic pseudonym?
Either way is fine for me My nickname here comes from Tolkien's world which was one of my greatest passions as a child.
How did you discover deviantART Chiara ?
I was looking for good resources: textures, stock images, photoshop brushes, etc. Then I decided to join to thank and support the resource providers... it didn't ta
This is why you should google your artworks..Hey deviants !
I'm coming to you with this small article to make you understand why you should google your artwork...
Here's the story...
Today while eating my lunch at work, browsing the web like i'm used to do during those small 10mins of break, I found one of my artwork on a facebook link...
Strangely this was a spanish "zen" website...
the original artwork ...
So I've Google this image and find out that this exact same picture was used ... for a CD !
The CD is from Zymosis and produced by Altar Records
By searching, I've finally find the "art association" created by the "designer" itself and finally find that this exact same designer used deviantART's images to create is own "artwork" and sell them for everything ... Like a full wall print in a restaurant, CD, t shirt, flyers
International Fractal Art Symposium 2014Exciting news guys!
A fractal artist meeting is being planned for 25-27th June, 2014 to be held in San Sebastian (Spain) and you are all invited!
The venues for this 3 day event have already been booked and invitations are going out to the fractal artist worldwide. This is a chance to meet and vacation with other fractal artists while also sharing in a day of lectures to learn more about fractal artistry, the history of fractal art and the tools we use.
A few US artists got together informally a few years ago and had a terrific time meeting each other and sharing ideas. We decided that the next one needed to be in Europe so that more people could attend.
For more information, please visit Math Artistry and don't miss your chance to register.
Hooray ! Long live to deviantART !Now 13 years ago deviantART was for the first time on the internet!
I'm sure $spyed °matteo and °jark don't really realize at this point the revolution they start.
deviantART comes from a small community of deviants to millions deviants!
From a small "applications skins and wallpapers" community to THE art community on the internet !
From a hundred deviations to millions of deviations !
Now 13 years later deviantART is made of 80+ active staff member, 50 community volunteers and more than 20 millions active deviants !
I'm really proud to have joined this community 9 years ago now, i'm browsing it more than 11 years now and I've seen it change a lot during all this time !
deviantART is always improving, changing... try to always be the best place to browse art (and it is for sure!), to give the most possible exposure to all the kind of art... That's just really awesome and breathtaking !
I encourage you to wish deviantART a Happy birthday and a long long long life to them !

How To Photograph Your Paintings
How To Photograph Your Paintings
In this article I want to discuss a common problem that some traditional artists have. That's photographing your paintings. Whether it be for selling prints or just getting your art noticed online the importance of having paintings look great is key. If your fortunate enough to have a scanner for smaller pieces then that's great! But if your working on large canvases or paper then you can run into issues. The most common problem artists have are Glare, Blur and Color. All of which will be discussed in this article.
Anyone who has worked with acrylics and oils knows what a problem this can be when your trying to take a picture of a painting. This is not as much a issues for a artist working with watercolors

Giveaways NEED to STOP!Giveaways on deviantART need to stop! They're having a number of detrimental effects on the community at large. Within this article, I aim to discuss this problem, as well as provide alternatives for giveaways. I'll begin by outlining what a giveaway is, both in the real world and on deviantART; explain why giveaways are simply not for deviantART; illustrate my points with real-world examples; and then go into detail on what exactly the aforementioned detrimental effects are. Additionally, I will counteract a number of excuses people use for holding and entering giveaways; as well as offer alternatives to giveaways for both parties.
I know the article is quite long, but this is an issue which myself and a growing number of other community members feel to be important. But I promise, it doesn't actually take too long to read once you get going!
If you agree with my points in this article, or even simply find the debate interesting, I would appreciate
My Pixel Winter ContestTime has finally come to have our very own official pixel art contest to give away some prizes and share the love with pixel community!
Christmas and winter overall is, at least for me, a very merry time of the year - families come together to celebrate Christmas, children play outside and have fun building snowmen. We all celebrate this time of the year differently with our own traditions. And this is what we want to see from you. It doesn't matter if you are a pixel art wizard or someone who tries it for the very first time, create something awesome in pixel art and share your idea of a perfect winter with us.
You have almost one whole month to create your entry for this contest. Contest runs from 12th of December until 9th of January.
But before you start we have some rules for you to follow.
1. Entry has to be created for this contest and can't be taken from your old work.
2. You can't use any pre-made templates, bases, etc

Crown of ThornsShe wakes up with red staining her pillow
and the taste of blood like iron in her mouth
It stains her teeth and leaks from her lips, and as she
rinses her mouth out, she can’t help thinking that
it’s better than dirt and ashes
it feels like she’s wearing a noose
of broken promises and shattered glass
that tightens around her throat with every day that passes
She nails a smile to her face
and doesn't let herself think the word dying
Keep in Touch!
^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
