Labor Day

Mon Sep 1, 2014, 9:01 AM


Labor Day is the day of work, as he is known and celebrated in English-speaking countries of the world.
The United States celebrate The Labor Day on every first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

Monday Munchies [19]

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.

RGB power-wallpaper by johngiannis27

I recently stumbled across John's art, and was immediately mesmerized. Although many artists will work with models to create fantastic scenes, this was one of only a few artists I have seen take that to an entirely new level. 

the power of the soul by johngiannis27

johngiannis27 brings his models to life from a simple photograph to an incredible world unlike anything you've seen! It's an absolutely incredible journey to see!

the power of the soul before - after by johngiannis27

Seeing his process is especially amazing. It's wonderful to see what level of thought and creation goes into these pieces from the start. Each component and choice matters for the final piece. Check out all of his work, both with models and without!

Did You Know - Add Media

Mon Aug 25, 2014, 9:14 AM

Add Media


Add Media is a feature that allows you to quickly add deviations from Sta.sh or deviantART. It is available for various places, such as Sta.sh in general, when writing journals or when leaving comments (profile, deviations, forum...). 

To get the Add Media interface for comment and description areas you simply click that Add Media textlink at the bottom of those sections. 

25 08 2014 01 by ginkgografix
(For descriptions on the submission page it looks similar,
but is without the "Add Drawing" link)


When you are using Sta.sh the Add Media interface will always show up whenever you edit a section where it is available. Same for when writing journals via the journal page. 

25 08 2014 02 by ginkgografix

The interface allows you to differ between Conversations (only available for comments), Sta.sh, deviantART and Emoticons.
The default tab changes depending on what feature you are currently using. For example for comments you usually start with the Emoticons tab.


Emoticons

Here you have the common dA emoticons, but also can search for specific ones further below. These are submissions of the "Chat Friendly Emotes" gallery. With the help of the search you can specify your results. 

25 08 2014 03 by ginkgografix


deviantART

The deviantART tab allows you to choose submissions from your own gallery, your favourites or your bookshelf (purchased Premium Content).
Again you have the option to refine your results with the help of the search.

You also can make use of the deviants button, next to the search field. This allows you to pick a certain deviant or group you watch and will get to see their submissions only.

25 08 2014 04 by ginkgografix  25 08 2014 05 by ginkgografix


Sta.sh

With the Sta.sh tab you can add all content that is part of your Sta.sh and usually hidden for others. 
Here you also have the option to add new content via the Upload Files button directly. 

25 08 2014 06 by ginkgografix


Conversation

Any kind of media that already has been used for a journal and the deviation itself will be listed here, no matter if it is part of deviantART directly or added via Sta.sh.

25 08 2014 07 by ginkgografix



:note: When writing a new journal you also have the Style options. 

When working with Sta.sh Writer you usually have Style as default. The Add Media bar is directly above that section and the content will appear once you choose one of the tabs. 

25 08 2014 08 by ginkgografix



Hiding Media


If you are done adding your content, you can hide the Add Media interface either by clicking on a text link in the comment sections again, or you use the button at the top right side, above the actual Add Media interface.

SA Interview - Branchewski

Tue Aug 19, 2014, 12:00 AM

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



Boloria Selene by Branchewski Playing With Fire by Branchewski


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?


Being a part of the senior hut makes me feel really motivated. I've always looked up to Senior members, evidence of their hard work and devotion to the community always being present around the site. I never expected to receive such an honour, so that now I'm spending most of the time thinking about how to give more to the community, get involved, and help out others whenever and however I can.
I received the news from my dear friend CROvalentina. She sent me a facebook message that basically said "Go to your dA profile. Now." I was at work and I didn't know what to expect, so I almost missed it the first time. Then I noticed the medal. And that was when I got massive goosebumps! :giggle:

What made you interested to join DeviantArt? What history is behind it? :eyes:


Back in year 2000, my best friend moved from Croatia to United States. Back then, broadband internet was almost nonexistent in my country, whatever we had from internet was via 56k modems and that was very expensive. I lost contact with my best friend for a few years. When we regained contact, he sent me a link to his gallery on dA. It was then that I had my first contact with dA, and fell in love with it. The year was 2005 and dA was growing fast. It could be said that I came for my friend, fell in love with the art, and stayed so long for the community. :aww:

You have an incredible collection of photos in your gallery!
What made you interested in Photography? What tools are you using to take photos like these?


Thank you very much, I consider myself a beginner in photography, and am very critical of the photos I post here. If it wasn't for dA , I would probably never have such a great hobby.  After spending some time just worshiping the art on dA, I decided to take a camera in my hand and have some fun. I had no experience, but my older sister went to photography school so she gave me a few pointers, but it was after I saved some money to buy my first dslr that I really started learning. I have a very modest gear, and I learn to make the best of it. For my butterfly photos I use a Tamron 70-300mm mounted on a Canon 1000D. I take a pleasure of taking photos of those, because they require a certain patience and stealth to get a good photo.

Any tips and tricks for other photographer how to take photos with the right lighting and effects?


Well, I am no pro, and all I know is just from little experience I have. If you learn the strong points and the weak points of whatever tool or gear you are using, you can make amazing photographs even with cheapest of cameras. You don't even need to know much about post processing either. Know your camera, know your environment, take lots of photos, and spend time observing your results. And don't forget to have fun. :giggle:

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


I would like to thank every deviant out there for making this community what it is. It will be a strong part of my life for years to come. No other place on the internet have what we have, and we must never forget that. We are a nation of deviants, a community of artists, and together we are a strong force of good on this world. The greatest things are yet to come. Thank you, have fun, and stay devious. :dalove:
