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

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.

fella is a welcoming space for new deviants, and a home for many existing deviants. We have had features ranging many categories and forms of art, and contests and events that have given out many prizes! But as 2014 winds down, we are looking to grow in 2015. This is where you come in. 

If you have a feature now, or wish to create one and share it at fella we are asking you to apply through this form

"Feature" encompasses many things for us, but most importantly, the journal that is shared must be beneficial to deviants (new and/or old). If you want to start something new, or bring a current feature to deviants at fella, this is your chance! A feature may also be a project (such as the Senior Interview series that is shared at Fella) that features deviants individually, events, etc.   

Happy Holidays to everyone, and we look forward to an amazing 2015 with each and every one of you!

Monday Munchies [27]

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.

Strip by aka-photography-uk

Mrs-Durden recently featured aka-photography-uk with this piece. It was absolutely incredible to me because of its originality. This was something I had never seen before! Although the idea of compositing different mediums and components together was not new, this style was awesome. 

Midnight rendezvous by aka-photography-uk

I then realized that it was not just this one amazing piece that drew me to aka-photography-uk, there are so many pieces (some NSFW) that just were really stunning and sometimes very funny, while others were only very enjoyable ;).  

Neck Corset by aka-photography-uk

Each of these pieces shows an incredible skill and passion for photography. Each planned out with perfection.

Happy Thanksgiving by PascalCampion

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.

Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, and has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!
