Monday Munchies [19]

Mon Aug 25, 2014, 6:36 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.

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!

devNEWS Article Series ~ LucyRanelle

Wed Aug 20, 2014, 6:29 AM

As part of an ongoing series, here is an interview with LucyRanelle :iconlucyranelle:, who has founded Artists-Birthday, who talks about coming up with wonderful features of deviants celebrating their name day, as well as other thoughts and activities!

:bulletblue: What brought you to deviantART to begin with? How long have you been on dA?

Actually I´ve found deviantart while searching for Pokemon fanart, and about two years later I´ve decided to sign up, because I love drawing and wanted to share my art here. Since then it´s been almost three years on this wonderful website, and I´ve learned very much, and met a lot of amazing people here.

Request: The Pichu Brothers by LucyRanelle  ~~Ghost Kirlia~~ by LucyRanelle

:bulletblue: You are known for your wonderful "Artist Birthday" journals featuring deviants who are celebrating a birthday, featuring some of their deviations. What started the series and how are you able to keep up with so many birthdays and such wonderful features?

It started with one wish, I wanted to make the artists, who put so much effort and love in their art, happy, and their birthday is like a perfect time to do this. My first feature I´ve uploaded here in October 2012, and since then have posted almost every day, except a long break because of exams. I´m watching more than 3000 artists here on Deviantart, which I think is one of the reasons why I am able to feature so many wonderful artists. I truly love to do these journals, it's one of my inspirations~!

:bulletblue: How does the group Artists-Birthday work? How long has it been a group?

Well, the group is unofficial, since it is still under construction. I´ve founded it about 2-years ago. When I´m finished with editing and correcting, the group should share the birthday features and other gifts by deviants, and maybe have a special monthly challenge I´m thinking about.

:bulletblue: What are the other groups you Admin? What are they about?

I´m one of the contributors of All-about-features, which is about, like the name says, features, since this group shares a lot of feature articles by other deviants, and supports new artists by a special feature called "DA-Starters". Also I´m a contributor of PichuFans-ForevUnite, which is about the cute Pokemon Pichu.

:bulletblue: Do you have a favorite art genre?

I would say I have a few ones, I love Anime/Mange, as well as nature and landscape photography, and traditional arts, but also digitally painted landscapes catch my eyes.

:bulletblue: What are your interests outside of dA?

I really love to paint and draw, traditional and digital as well, and I love to write. When I not working on a drawing or my story I play video games, or go outside and walk through the nature. I love to photograph or draw there too.

Ein Band bindet - PrologEin uraltes Märchen würde Geschichten erzählen, und in jeder Sage, so versicherte man uns, würde ein Funken Wahrheit leuchten. Jede Fabel vermag uns eine Lehre zu sen und selbst das kleinste und leiseste Wort würde etwas bedeuten.
Aber warum sollte es dann bei dieser einen bestimmten Geschichte nicht zutreffen?
Weshalb sollte es dann also falsch sein, daran zu glauben, an die Existenz einer zweiten Welt?
Allein schon die kleinste Erwähnung glich einem Vergehen, also wagte es niemand. Bloß ich habe mir vorgenommen, euch genau jene Geschichte zu erzählen und von den Ereignissen,m die eng mit ihrer Zukunft verstrikckt sind.
Diese Legende reicht ein paar tausend Jahre zurück, in eine Zeit, als noch Freiheit herrschte in dem, was man laut aussprach. Der Beginn einer neuen, vielversprechenden Welt. Die Ankündigung von etwas unglaublichem, einem sehr großem, sich herumsprechendem Geschehnis.
Und viele ließen sich von dieser Idee b

:bulletblue: What do you like the most about dA?

Hm... that´s a difficult question. I guess it´s the art and the kindness what makes me stay here. Deviantart is a great way for people around the world to share their art with others, getting critique and feedback, and to find inspiration and help, which makes them improve and become artists who love what they do.

:bulletblue: Last thoughts?

That is the time for me to say thank you, for interviewing me and for supporting my articles in that way. I feel very special, and it makes me think that it was actually a good idea to continue this project.

I have a quetion? The edit feature for comments seems to be gone. Is it permanently gone or there something wrong? I rather liked it. Helped me with mistakes of spelling.

Would you mind adding this article of mine about a girl who was reunited with her family after having been presumed dead for 10 years due to a natural disaster?
