SurrealismWatch depthRADIUSSurrealism by $techgnotic
orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

Arthur RackhamArthur Rackham was born on the 19th of September 1867 in London and died of cancer at the age of 71 in Limpsfield, Surrey. He's considered to be one of the most recognisable artists of the Golden Age of Illustration in Europe, along with John Bauer and Theodor Kittelsen.Arthur Rackham by `SylwiaTelari
He was born in a big family - it's enough to mention that he had 11 siblings, but surely plenty of you knows that it wasn't quite unusual in the XIX century and earlier. We know that in his youth, Rackham's health was rather poor - hence he travelled to Australia with his two aunts to improve his condition.
After he returned, he began studying at the Lambeth School of Art. In 1892 he started working as a r
Jean Giraud (Moebius)Jean Giraud (Moebius) by `SRaffa
Jean Henri Gaston Giraud (also known as Moebius) was a French comics artist, working in the French tradition of bandes dessinées (bandes dessinées is derived from the original description of the comics art form as "drawn strips").
Many artists from around the world have cited Giraud as an influence on their work. Giraud was longtime friends with manga author and anime filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki. Giraud even named his daughter Nausicaä after the character in Miyazaki's Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Asked by Giraud in an interview how he first discovered his work, Miyazaki replied:
"Through Arzach, which dates from 1975, I believe. I only read it in 1980, and it was a big shock. Not only for me. All manga authors were shaken by this work. Unfortunately, when I discovered it, I already had a consolidated style so I couldn't use its inf
A glimpse into Baroque ArtA glimpse into Baroque Art by `SRudy
Baroque is an art movement from the 17th century, that resulted from the religious wars of the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter Reformation. Religious faith reached an emotional height and the intense feeling, which inspired both faiths, produced a rich expression in art.
The term baroque implies a certain roughness, and the stormy paintings and dramatic music of the Baroque period often possessed the rugged torment of emotion. The French used the word "Baroque" to mean "a painting in which the rules of proportion are not observed and everything is represented according to the artist's whim." In the 17th century, art was naturalistic rather than ideal, and emotional rather than rational-art of movement, vitality, and brilliant color. Subjects could be chosen from daily life, as well as antiquity and the Bible, and presented to

Anthro ArtHello Everyone!Anthro Art by ^KovoWolf
So as a part of the %ArtHistoryProject I would like to present a discussion in respects to Anthro Art. Relating to history and its present.
A Peek In The Past
A lot of people ask me "How did you find Anthro Art?".
Well my first experience with Anthro art has always been with me. I never really knew what the 'term' of it was or that it even had a term (nor did I know about 'furries') until I was introduced to it way back in the day. *Goldenwolf's gallery was one of the first Anthro galleries I came across and I saw the term "Anthro" scattered about. It was a term used to describe certain pieces of her art. This is where I gained knowledge of it in the first. Furry art was a term I learned later on while I dove myself further into the community and I honestly didn't know about "furry art" until a few years ago! When I joined DeviantART 8 years ago my love and passion only grew. Like weeds I tell you! Those nasty ki

An Interview with noncultureAn Interview with nonculture by ^GrimFace242
What was your favorite part of the publishing process?
Well, of course, that would be when the books showed up at my doorstep, and also online in the stores. Though certain moments might be ‘exciting’, mostly it was a lot of waiting. I self-published, so I probably should not complain about any wait, because I’ve talked to a few people who have waited years for a project to get to print with the big houses. In some cases they even got canceled after a lot of effort working with a publisher. For instance, an author friend who had big house interest in his children’s book had the house go as far as to hire an artist for the story, only to drop it eventually. That has to be a killer. The wait is frustrating, but the payoff is worth it. I did enjoy the editor’s response and suggested revisions, however. It was interesting to see what a professional editor had to say about what
A Fantastical Journey Though tales of fantastical creatures and beings have existed for centuries, the beginnings of fantasy literature as a genre of its own can be traced to the Victorian Era, and writers like George MacDonald and William Morris.A Fantastical Journey by ~LadyBrookeCelebwen
“There was once a little princess whose father was king over a great country full of mountains and valleys. His palace was built upon one of the mountains, and was very grand and beautiful. ” – George MacDonald, The Princess and the Goblin
However, at this time fantasy was still considered suitable mainly for children. Many of the fantasy works that people are familiar with from this time period, such as Alice in Wonderland where written for children. While other writers did write fantasy books, it would be the books of J.R.R. Tolkien would bring fantasy to the attention of people all around the world.
Though The Hobbit has much in common the

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Below you'll find a list of tutorials I personally think of as the best on dA. If I have any problems with painting something I usually take a look at one of those.
Is there anything you're having troubles with? Need help looking for a good tutorial? Or maybe you'd like to see a video walk-through of me painting something?
I'm open for suggestions for what kind of tutorial/walk-through you'd like to see from me. If you're interested in anything, post your suggestions in the comments!

Interview with *yangtianliInterview with *yangtianli by `lintu47
Yangtian Li was born in China 23 years ago, but moved to Australia to follow her dream of becoming a professional illustrator and animator for games, magazines and books. She agreed to answer a few questions, so let's sit back and take a few minutes to see what she has to say.
What drawn you towards digital art, paintings in particular? How was your first experience with this kind of art and how long ago was it?
Like many artists, I have always been interested in drawing since a very young age, it was really just a natural thing. I love animation and I've always been watching lots of animations since i was a child. As I grew, I also found huge interest in comics (manga particularly) and games, and these have always been my inspiration. So my goal was always to become a professional artist i
Inspiring Digital Artworks Try browsing dA. Many of the most popular artworks ever are uploaded in Digital Art gallery. Then have a look at some of the most popular digital works in the last hours and compare them to some other popular deviations from different categories. What do you notice? - What i did a long time ago: there's a difference between them; digital artworks usually have more views, more comments, more faves. And it made me wonder "Why is that?" - Is it because many people are fans of fantasy characters and great landscapes? Is it because they enjoy looking at an enhanced figure or at a reality-defying picture?Inspiring Digital Artworks by `lintu47
Of course they do, but that's not the only reason. It's mostly because people appreciate good work and stunning details, which are sometimes harder or impossible to achieve through other arts. It is also because this is the medium that imposes no limits to your power of creation - you ca

Rembrandt's Self PortraitsCountless artists have used themselves as models. This, a lot of times, comes out of necessity and convenience, but there are plenty of other reasons why an artist might model for themselves.Rembrandt's Self Portraits by ^PirateLotus-Stock
Rembrandt van Rijn is the first artist I think of when talking about self portraits. (That could be because he's my favorite painter, but whatever ) Some sources say he made 60 self-portraits, others claim he did over 90. Whatever the number, it was a LOT.
The exact reason Rembrandt painted himself so often is unknown, but it has been speculated that perhaps, since he was struggling a lot of his life, he was the cheapest and most readily-available model; he often painted himself as someone else. Or maybe he was doing self-portraits to express his feelings at the time; he sometimes painted himself with a serious look on his face. Another theory is that self-portraits helped artists to be more well-known. There was no Facebook back then, you know. I

You use polymer clay in such an interesting way, when did you start realizing that you had your own unique style?
It was in the first six months I think. I wondered if I was developing my own style or if I was simply 'stuck in a rut' LOL
When did you first develop an interest for Polymer Clay?
It was in 2008 I believe. I was searching around on Etsy and kept seeing the words 'polymer clay'. I looked it up on the internet to see what it was and when I learned it was a clay that did not require a kiln I was intrigued!
Do you have any kind of polymer clay or jewelry design training?
No training at all....alth
Origami - Art of Paper FoldingOrigami is an art form that transforms paper into a sculpture through paper folding and sculpting techniques. Thus, cutting or gluing paper would not be considered to be origami, but 'kirigami' instead. The name 'Origami' is Japanese, in which 'Ori' is the Japanese word for folding, and 'kami' the word for paper.Origami - Art of Paper Folding by ^3wyl
It is generally believed that origami originated from Japan, but, as there are few records, this is not certain. Nevertheless, Japan developed origami into an intense art form that still exists to this day.
In the past, instructions for origami were passed down in spoken form and not written down. Some say that origami first originated in China in 1st Century, in which paper was then brought to Japan by Buddhist monks in 6th Century. Others claim that paper was made in the 8th Century by the Arabs, with Moors bringing the art of paper folding to Spain in the 12th Century. Spain then spread to South America, and as trade routes developed, origami was thus introduced to Europe a

Guess: about which element from the picture above will be this article about?
About socks. And to be more precise -- about one really old technique of making them, older than crocheting and much older than knitting. Previously, you could read a simple tutorial about how to make a viking dress, and this little thing is strongly connected to the mentioned one. I'd not imagine a lack of these socks when some of the history reenactment events are early in April or in October, or exactly in winter. (Of course, the ones from the photo above are my summer socks, phew. You'll see my winter ones in the end.)
Besides being accurate historically and useful for history reenactment, I'm sure that you can admit how waaarm and comfortable can woolen socks be. There's nothing better to warm up your toes after you arrive home in December, all cold and tired... maybe except a nice bath, but noone says that you can't wea

Julie Margaret Cameron
She was a shrewd business woman, and her fame came from having the only photographs of some very famous iconic people in History. And how did she manage this? By meticulously keeping details and registering her copyright with every single Photograph she took. We can learn a lot from her actions, particularly in an age where anything can be replicated, if you have the right tools. Equally, we can also learn the value of the equipment we have around us, and how easy it is now to capture a photograph and share it with the world. Julie's time in Sri Lanka served as a testimony that without pure water and chemicals, she couldn't continue with her craft and a

Hanna-Barbera Productions is an American animation studios which has produced timeless classics more timeless classics than I can name. Tom & Jerry, Johnny Quest, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Scooby Doo, The Addams Family and many more!
The studio was formed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, formerly directors from the MGM Studio. They were born during the golden age of American animation as MGM shut down their animation studio, Hanna-Barbera rose from it's ashes.
The production company became super popular with it's Saturday morning cartoons. Their cartoon shorts and series filled this time slot on all major American TV channels at the time. However over time their profits started to fall as they lost this morning slot.

Film Legends: Akira KurosawaFilm Legends: Akira Kurosawa by ^KasumiCR
Born in Tokyo, Japan on the 23rd of March 1910, Akira Kurosawa is considered one of the biggest figures in the film industry and a notable influence to western filmmakers such as George Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola and Steven Spielberg.
His career started in 1936 as an assistant director. Kurosawa was taken under the wing of director Kajiro Yamamoto, who promoted him to chief assistant director within a year. His first film as a director was Drunken Angel in 1948 and was the first of many collaborations with actor Toshiro Mifune. His international breakthrough came with Rashomon in 1950, a movie that won him the top prize at the Venice Film Festival and opened the gates of the Western to Japanese films.
The following years he worked on Ikiru(1952); Seven Samurai (1954), his first "proper samurai film" regarded by some as the greatest Japanese film ever made; and Throne of Blood (1957), an adaptation of Shakespeare's Macb

Customization is a diverse category, that because of its diversity shares many rumors, myths and general questions about parts of the gallery and their uses.

I set out to answer my own questions that I've wondered about and was greeted with a tremendous amount of help from the community as well as a variety of answers for me to chew on.
