*REDROB10~Robert-Alan takes modern images and makes them pop. His compelling mixed media assemblages, born from playing with different textures and shapes, results in works simple yet dynamic. The wide range of palates he uses -- from the often-solemn muted colors of his paper collage work to the bright, splashes of neon in his mixed media pop art -- showcases his mastery of color to elicit the exact emotion he's hoping for within the minds of his audience.

Pumpkins!Happy Halloween! For those of you who have not yet figured this out, this is my favorite holiday. I love dressing up in costume, carving pumpkins, and watching scary movies. This is probably my last feature of the season, so I thought I'd feature some AMAZING pumpkin carvings to celebrate the Legend of Jack O'Lantern, an iconic Halloween legend!

Ood Sigma: We will sing to you, Doctor...Recently deviantART has added a new way to browse art. This article series is intended to feature art found by using the What's Hot? feature.
I'm doing the article series as a way to promote smaller facets of the larger categories, in hopes of sharing what I find and maybe you'll like it.
Today is April 19th, and here's What's Hot? in this category:
Digital Art > Drawings and Paintings > SciFi
Digital Science fiction depicting speculative scientific discoveries, space travel and scenes, and other world life forms.
I begin with this category because it is personally my favourite to browse. When I need inspired and want to get some creative juices flowing, I turn to this gallery to jump-start the process. I read a great deal of SciFi books, watch movies and television series, and even have found myself playing card and role-play games centered aro

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the broken relationships between men and their razors. Donning their moustaches, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostate cancer.

LET'S GET FOLDINGLET'S GET FOLDING
Many times a friend or a deviant has said to me, "oh I could never fold origami, I'm not gifted that way", but it's just not true! As part of %projecteducate's Artisan Crafts week, I'm going to show you how simple it is to find and fold something gorgeous and to present it well to your internet audience.
With just a little inspiration and a bit of patience, ANY one of us could fold something absolutely lovely. So what are you waiting for?? Let's get folding!
1) BE INSPIRED
First of all, you need to figure out what you want to fold. You need inspiration from looking at gorgeous origami, from admiring nature and the world around, or maybe it'll just hit you like a random lightning bolt. We are super privileged to have many experienced and skilful origamists on dA, many who create their own models from scratch. From persona
PE: Mastery and Purpose in Your Art"Wow, you’re so talented, I could never draw like that even in a million years!"
"You’re either really good at art or you aren’t."
"Some people have all the talent, and I’m not one of them."
We hear and see things like this all the time and people with the middle to high range art skills know these comments are just not true. As author Geoff Colvin says in his book by the same title, "Talent is overrated," and really it is. There is no such thing as one person being born super talented and another having none at all or other such myths in art like that. The only difference between you the beginner artist and that artist way up at the top is hard work, smart work and time.
One major study (listed in 'Talent Is Overrated') showed that there was no such thing as the ‘talented’ elite who hardly work and just come out on top. It was found that there was no such thing as the person who just worked super hard consistently
AerosolIt has been a day and a half since the crash, and I have found a cabin. In some ways, this is a relief. I don’t know if I could face another night on the mountain without shelter. Outside, a fire does no good: the heat simply travels upwards. However, this place also raises some difficult questions. I estimate that I’ve put eight miles between myself and the crash site. I don’t know if this will be enough. It Saving...
occurs to me that I don’t really know anything.
The survival manual recommends staying with the plane. It explains that this affords the best chance of rescue. It explains that the wreckage offers warmth and shade. It explains that seventy percent of pilots who stay are located within three days, while seventy percent of those who leave are

^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. ^...
