Digital Art Features - Sci-Fi"Science fiction is a genre of fiction dealing with imaginary but more or less plausible (or at least non-supernatural) content such as future settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, parallel universes, aliens, and paranormal abilities. Exploring the consequences of scientific innovations is one purpose of science fiction, making it a "literature of ideas".
Science fiction is largely based on writing rationally about alternative possible worlds or futures. It is similar to, but differs from fantasy in that, within the context of the story, its imaginary elements are largely possible within scientifically established or scientifically postulated laws of nature (though some elements in a story might still be pure imaginative speculation)". - Wikipedia.
Digital Art Feature - Fantasy."Fantasy art is a genre of art that depicts magical or other supernatural themes, ideas, creatures or settings. While there is some overlap with science fiction, horror and other speculative fiction art, there are unique elements not generally found in other forms of speculative fiction art. Depictions of ancient myths and legends, as well as depictions of modern day fantasy in the form of divine interventions and other magical or supernatural forces, are very common elements, and help distinguish fantasy art from other forms. Dragons, wizards, fairies and other fantastical and mythical creatures are common features in fantasy art." - Wikipedia.

Quino - Latin American cartoonistJoaquín Salvador Lavado, better known as Quino, is an Argentine cartoonist born in Mendoza on July 17, 1932. According to his official website, Quino discovered his love for art at the young age of 3 thanks to his uncle Joaquín Tejón, painter and advertising illustrator.
In Mendoza, he went to the School of Fine Arts (Escuela de Bellas Artes) with the hopes of working for the comic Rico Tipo. However, he left the school in 1945. Five years later, he sells his first cartoon to a silk shop and visits Buenos Aires for 3 weeks in search for a job, with not luck whatsoever. In 1954, he returns to Buenos Aires where some of his works get published by Esto Es. In 1963 he publishes his first book: a collection of silent comics titled Mundo Quino.
His most famous and successful work is

"Which of my photographs is my favorite?
The one I'm going to take tomorrow." ~ Imogen Cunningham
I'm loving jars this month. I'm not sure why, other than the fact that I saw some set up at a craft fair that I had a table at, and I just fell in love with them. A couple of large jars with some fairy lights nestled in them - the effect was immense. It was so simple too! Sadly the people weren't actually selling the lights, but once I'd made a little profit on my sales, I went over clutching my ten pound note and picked out a few. So I was delighted to see that on Flipboard today, there was an article exploring 19 great photos of jars. If you're stuck for inspiration, grab a jam jar (take the jam out first maybe) and start shooting. Shoot things through them, around them, in them - get creative! Jars are awesome.

"Creativity, like human life itself - begins in Darkness "
I read a very interesting article this week debating Photography Vs Literature and which one of the two tells us more. Of course there is always the element that a picture could be accompanied by words but neither aspect is enough to tell a whole story. But as the article says, Photography has become a universal constant in the world today and is accessible to nearly everybody. Yet many still believe that only pure narration can truly tell a story. What are your thoughts? As Photographers we can choose to limit what we tell or show with a photograph, we can even mislead. Can we convey more with words? Or more with an image? You could describe a person with words but never truly give an accurate picture of who they are visually without a photograph...

Art History - Interview with Lyricanna:iconarthistoryproject: :iconcommunityrelations:
As part of Graphical Art History Month I will be interviewing some of your Community Volunteers
Today it's the lovely ^Lyricanna - Community Volunteer for Fan Art
Hi ^Lyricanna, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
Hi, I'm Rhys and when not creating digital dolls, my style runs more towards semi-relaistic-anime mash-up. I mostly work traditionally since it's just easier for me.
Also a bit more portable; there are places I can take a pencil and sketchbook that I would not want to take a laptop and tablet
What is it that attracts you to Graphical Art?
I just like characters; designing, replicating, trying to achieve some meaningful interaction.
How much do you think that the roots and origins of Art affect what we create today?
Quite a bit; there are still many popular s

Photography Troubleshooting: Grouping PeopleWhen working with large groups of people, it's often incredibly difficult to know how to direct them, where to pose them, and indeed what to have them doing. One of the biggest mistakes I’ve made when embarking on my first group shot at my first wedding as a photographer - was not speaking up when my assistant was shooting alongside me. The consequence? Half the group were looking at him, and half the group were looking at me. Luckily we straightened it out in the end - but when there are a lot of cameras around, or lots of people - you need to speak up and give direction so they can take direction.
Knowing who your client is in advance, and knowing what sort of group you will be working with is very useful in terms of preparing. It would be unprofessional to arrive at a Wedding with expectations of 50 people attending and then finding out that you have 150 to work with. Knowing your group and the expanse you'll need i

^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
