Monday Munchies [28]

Mon Dec 15, 2014, 5:00 PM by TimberClipse:icontimberclipse:


Every Monday, I will be featuring a single deviant's artwork. The deviant may be known or unknown, and may have received accolades or joined deviantART last week. By featuring just a single deviant, I hope to give the deviant some exposure and bring a little beauty to your week. I also include a short description about the artist and/or what draws me to their work. 


James Rushforth | Gallery

The world turns on the Passo Giau by JamesRushforth

I came across JamesRushforth first with this photo. An incredible, beautiful, and truly stunning photograph. This is such a beautiful piece that involves simply everything that I love about nature in one place!

An alternative perspective on Lake Garda by JamesRushforth

What's incredible about James is that in addition to being a photographer he is also a climber. Those two things come together in some of his photos and work so perfectly together. I can only imagine the fun he gets to have with these two jobs!

JamesRushforth has an incredibly diverse gallery as well. All of these photos are all worth your time! Check them all out!

SA Interview - RhynWilliams

Tue Dec 9, 2014, 11:56 AM

Congratulations to RhynWilliams for receiving seniority on July 7th, 2014! :squee:

Lucifer by RhynWilliamsElectrolysis by RhynWilliams

What is it like to be a part of the senior hut? How do you feel about receiving the Medal? How did you receive the news?

When I was given the seniority, I stared at my screen for around 5 minutes wondering what was going on, I wondered why was I given it, was it a glitch? was I given it by mistake or something? Then I noticed a flood of supportive comments on the bottom of my notifications page and a mention from fourteenthstar and so started to smile and my mood shot up, and yes it feels awesome!

You are a really active member of the Traditional Art community.
May I ask, what are your current activities in the Traditional Art community? Any projects you would like to promote?

Well, I do contribute journals (Traditional troves) to Traditionalists on a weekly basis to try and encourage people to comment, favorite and 'watch' work by artists who recently uploaded their art, because often striking work goes unnoticed and are left forgotten, I feel it's important to help each other out.
I often create forum threads in 'Deviant Thumbshare' to encourage people to upload their traditional works, So I highly recommend people to visit the forum section of DA because the more involved you are, the better the chance you have to get noticed.
Another group I would like to mention is projecteducate, like Traditionalists the work that has been done to keep this group alive is quite remarkable, full of insightful information to help fellow artists kindle their prefered trade, I was lucky enough to set off their 'Hints + Tips' journals (which Is to teach artists techniques in the most easiest and fastest way possible)

What made you interested in Traditional Art?

I became interested in art when I was hauled away from my classes at high school for being too hyperactive. I was sent to the library where I searched for art books to look at, I would doodle and sketch to pass the time. After a while I would start to enjoy being sent away because for someone with ADHD and dyslexia, I was in my element.

Who are your inspirations in the Traditional Art community? And why?

Apart from art masters I look up to, here on on DA there are many artist who are pillars to the traditional art community and these are just some that stand out ArtByCher deshrubber jane-beata STelari Backsackandjack MarySdfghjkl and valaisis

Thank you very much for the interview! Do you have anything you wish to share with us? Any Last words?

Thank you, Yes.. this is directed to any artists of any trade.
Art is and will always be a puzzle, you will always adapt and learn to correct your errors, you may sometimes feel like you are not good enough or you may feel other artists are better than you.. this is normal, the trick is to keep at what your doing and concentrate on your own work, instead of putting someone else's work up on your wall, stick your own work on the wall and look at how you can improve your last piece. Listen to criticisms, drop your vanity at your studio door, you can always claim your ego at your next showing when people compliment your work, spend less time on the computer and draw, draw all the time! draw things you dont like drawing and if you keep at it, you will improve.

I don't believe that DA staff ever announced the reason(s). :o
DarkACGuy Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
I guess DA is gonna drop Fella ever since their new switch. They probably think that they're so pretentious and don't have time for something as trivial as a mascot.

Hi! I asked the same question to DeviantArt HQ group and heidi, but no one replied :( Isn't DeviantArt going to plan something special for Halloween? Last year there was the Mystery Murder challenge with the fairytale characters which I enjoyed very much, so I was looking forward for something similar this year, but so far......nothing. Should I assume there will be nothing for Halloween?? :( :( :( 
cinyu Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey! On Halloween there were chat and forum events hosted by Community Volunteers: Click here for schedule
