My deviantART StoryYeah I know I'm late with this, but it's always good to say it.
Happy Birthday dA!
Here is the little story I thought of when I heard this years challenge was to write and show how we came to deviantArt.
When I first saw deviantArt I was doing a research for a school project.
At that time all knew about art was what I saw in school, and I didn't knew that a site like deviantArt was existing. When I found this site I was a totally newbie at the internet and I didn't really thought about what can happen if you get a member at any website. At first I wasn't really active, there has been more than one yearuntil I came to dA again. That was when I got active here and I started my dA-Life with looking for mainly fantasy-related pictures:
Today my Fantasy-collection is huge and I'm even running a group (Fantasy-Characters) where the members can show their picture
Featuring our members
It's time to feature you again.
We found some really nice deviations for you, so take a look.
Some changes and a Feature
Our group is really big and we get many submissions everyday. As you know we have some Rules which help us to choose the deviantions we include in our gallery. There are always some pictures which don't fit tinto our rules, but that's not a big problem for us. Anyway now we will make a few changes.
From now on we will try to get a little stricter with these rules, but mainly we will have ONE new rule:
Your pictures have to have a minimum size of 500px at the shorter side of your picture.
A little Feature
All our members show us their best works, everyday by sumitting to our gallery, it's time to show these to you, too.
How an artist sees the worldWe all here on dA are artists. We show the world how we see the world by painting it with our words and pictures, or take a photo of the things we see.
We all see different things in the world. Everything we do, shows another part of the world we live in or the world we dream of.
We can show it here on deviantArt in groups and features.
:iconthefavouriteshowcase: is having a project about features, called FEATURE FOR FEATURE
I will do a feature, showing you some visions of the world:

Norman Rockwell Tribute by Sarafinconcepts
Few artists have so definitively reflected the lives of average Americans as Norman Rockwell.
He began his lifetime dedication to being the “America’s Illustrator” as the 19-year-old art editor for Boys’ Life, the house publication of the Boy Scouts of America. A few years later he assumed his more famous position at The Saturday Evening Post, though he never broke his ties with the Boy Scouts. His first great achievement painting everyday scenes of America in his signature hyper-realistic style was
Photographs and paintings of stars occupy that category of things you know are so, and yet it’s not quite possible to believe. One example is radio or television “signals” traveling in “waves” through the air, only to be reassembled for your listening or viewing pleasure in your living room radio or TV. Looking at clusters of stars lighting up the night sky like massive storm clouds, it’s impossible to think of those stars, those points of light, as separate massive burning suns, even though I know it’s so. Sometimes the most powerful magic requires no deception at all. The natural universe is more mystifying in its sheer numbers than any magician’s most mind–bending sleight of hand.
“I am like a falli
In ancient tradition, Halloween was thought to be the night of the year when the realms of the living of the living and the dead came the closest together, enabling evil spirits and demons to hop over to our side to make mischief. For centuries the Church made very serious studies of what these hellacious creatures were actually thought to look like. Today, “creature imagining” is just a creative exercise and a way of having fun. Thank goodness none of our deviantART artists are drawing any of the subjects of this collection from live models. (Then again, just maybe…)
“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”
– William Shakespeare
Collection: Dia de Los Muertos
Dia de los Muertos
“Day of the Dead” is not the “Latin American Halloween.” On Dia de los Muertos, Mexican families visit the spirits of their dead in the cemeteries where they rest. They bring food and other gifts as part of a happy celebration of departed loved ones. Halloween originated with the fear of the sprits of the dead visiting the living so food was offered as bribery for the spirits to do no harm. It was a scary once–a–year intersection of the world of the living with the world of the dead. Day of the Dead continues to be a celebration as antidote to mourning the passing over of loved ones. It is about the indestructible bonds of family being forever connected—even in the next world.
Who is Dr. Strange?
Who is Dr. Strange?
Dr Stange colored by DM-P18
For several months the world has been asking the question ‘Who is Doctor Strange?’
The faces of Ethan Hawke, Johnny Depp, Jon Hamm, Joaquin Phoenix, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto have been click bait for a thousand sites waiting for news of the star of the next Marvel movie franchise. According to Mike Fleming over at Deadline it now looks like Marvel have finally landed their perfect Doctor Strange in Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch.
But while everyone is chasing the casting news, who is asking the real question here of ‘Who is Doctor Strange?’

He started his own publishing company, Mam Tor, to self–publish Sharpenings: the Art of Liam Sharp
Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi
Clive Barker: Return of The Dark Master
His Books of Blood in the 1980s established him as a premier master of the horror narrative, on an equal level or even surpassing Stephen King, who said of him;
I have seen the future of horror, his name is Clive Barker.
Like King, Barker’s works of horror have been adopted and adapted for movies, his stories becoming the basis for the Hellraiser and Candyman series and many more. Beyond his stories being used as source material, Barker has worked as screenwriter, producer, actor and director in the film world.
As with Stephen King, many of Clive’s fans have found him through enjoying his horror tales
