PortraitClub "Remember Me" Contest WinneThe winners of the PortraitClub contest have been announced! More information can be found here: http://portraitclub.deviantart.com/journal/Winners-of-the-quot-Remember-Me-quot-Contest-301576937
Congratulations to the winners and thank you so much to everyone who helped out with this contest. It's our first one since the club's new founder and staff stepped in, so whether you donated points, offered a feature, submitting your work, or just checked out the submissions, it's greatly appreciated by all of us.
Now, on to the feature!
I am absolutely in love with this piece, drawn by the very talented and generous pbird12. The concept of it is what truly drew me in. I suggest reading her artist comments to get the digs, because she explains better than I ever could the impact of this piece. This one has stuck in my mind for a while now.
This photo by rusrainbow is quietly stunning. The silhouette is dram
Bad/Good News + FeatureUnfortunately, my Canon 400D is broken. I have deduced that it is the shutter release button, which hopefully will not cost too much to get repaired/replaced. Seeing as my parents own the camera, it is now up to them when the camera will be repaired, so I have no idea when I'll be posting photos again. In the meantime, I am tentatively saving money to perhaps purchase my own DSLR body in the next year or so. I think it will give me more independence.
Also, I have taken an interest in traditional art for the first time in a while and have been experimenting with that again, inspired by my advanced placement art class at school and the teacher who instructs it. She is extremely encouraging and has offered to give me some after-school instruction in watercolor painting now, even though we won't be working with watercolors as a class until next semester. I plan on taking her up on the offer and seeing what comes of it. Maybe you'll see something other than photography from me while I wait
Azure by *GretaTuAnother DD suggestion featured. Also suggested by another user. It's that good. Don't just look at the thumb, fullview this baby.
Father and son by ~PolyraspadAnother of my DD suggestions got featured a couple of days ago. Here it is.
Polyraspad has a gallery full of beautifully detailed digital paintings. Please give it a look, you won't regret it.
J . by *juice-teenOne of my DD suggestions to DistortedSmile got accepted today! Here it is:
juice-teen is very, very talented and has a beautiful gallery that I can tell is only going to improve from here. Give her works a peek, maybe watch her if you like what you see. She deserves it! I'm so happy.
Feature #1 - Underappreciated MonochromaticNow, I am not incredibly popular by any means, so I'm not sure if I'm helping anyone much by featuring them.
But I know that when someone features me, it's like I'm walking on air, because it tells me that they liked my work enough to pick it out of everything else on this site and direct others to it. It means a lot, and it's a simple thing to do. So here I go with a monochromatic feature.
I'm not paying much attention to who I'm featuring, I'm just choosing photos I like that I feel need some love. Each and every one of you are phenomenal artists.

Good Morning, Dear. by inbrainstormGardien Noir De La Seine by yunomee
ConceptsI'm trying to branch out into the world of conceptual photography. It is more interesting for me, and right now, with the kind of work I'm doing, I don't feel challenged. And when I don't feel challenged, I find I don't feel very inspired.
At the moment, I feel like my "style" has a lot more to do with my post-processing than it does with my photos. I want to change that. I feel like there's more freedom with conceptual photography. There's so much to choose from and so many ideas. I need to stop being lazy and trying to just make something pretty; I want to make something BEAUTIFUL. Not just visually, either. Maybe I'm aiming too high, but I know I feel comfortable enough with my craft now to try to push myself. I know how to make a nice-looking photo. I want to move beyond that.
Wish me luck.
Also, go check out these guys:
They are both very good artists and very good watchers to me.
Happy Late Birthday!To me!
My birthday was two days ago, on the 24th. I'm fifteen now.
I had cake and pizza. I am a happy child.
Updates: Macros, cigarettes, and photoshop.Yesterday I took a trip into the font yard and got some really good macro shots I'm pleased with. And also today I took some pretty good photos of Hanners smoking, which is always fun. And I was a good girl and didn't take a hit off of it even though she offered. P: I just took pictures instead, which is a pretty fair trade if you ask me.
I've been using a lot of davidnanchin's PS actions lately. I want to learn from them rather than become dependent on them because I need to know how to do all that awesome on my own, in my own way. So you'll be seeing a lot of actions plus some additional editing and whatnot while I try to kind of branch out a little. Hope that turns out okay.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with everything lately.

Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

You and IArtwork by agnes-cecile
I figured it out from black and white.
Seconds and hours.
Maybe they had to take some time.
I know how it goes from wrong and right.
Silence and sound.
Did they ever hold each other tight
Did they ever fight
We can make it 'til the end.
Nothing can come between
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us.
I figured it out.
Saw the mistakes of up and down.
Meet in the middle.
There's always room for common ground.
I see what it's like for day and night.
this thing called art is really dangerous by agnes-cecile
'Cause they see things in a different light
But they never tried

To share what you loveHello everyone,
It's been such a long time since I've done a feature just for the heck of it, without any purpose whatsoever other than showcasing things I love. I've been so busy on here with young-photo-club, Death-Chicks, GetDailyDeviations, and my own Group Spotlight features that I haven't been able to do a feature of random things I've seen and adored here on DA! So here it goes!

Something NewI hope to start regularly featuring artists who catch my eye. I make my selection based on the quality of the work, but I also try to choose artists who could use more attention. I might feature a more popular artist on occasion. If you have any suggestions for me, feel free to note me with a link to the person's gallery. I might start throwing in a kind of "watcher's choice" feature as well if I get enough of a response! I'll be sure to link you as the suggester if this happens.
I might play around with the format of these features a bit, but for now, this is what I'm going with.
In which I feature a member of Portrait-Club.
Her CatalystAs she walks through the maelstrom, the words trace upon the tips of her fingers and press into the stone. Every brick, every crack in the concrete, every crossed and angular stroke in reds and blacks and oranges. The drips of the gasoline pool around the base of her boots, slosh as she steps over the burst pipes and the rubble.
So much rubble. So little outcry. The silence of the city grates on her eardrums and the mantras she'd been forced to memorize. The Seers demanded they observe thirteen years of recitation before they attempt to weave their first World together.
But who other than the Seers can claim the incantations that knot the skeins they twist and pull on like reins hold fast? When have any of the Sisters recorded the visions they traced upon space-time and recited them, left them open for critique and discussion and debate?
Which is why she walks through the chalky soot of the smashed city around her. This all
