Be Creative for Fuck's Sake !thank you all !
Women ArtistsThe other day, I attempted to put together a huge list of some professional and semi-pro women artists over on my tumblr, because it seems like too often women get overlooked when it comes to being honored and recognized. This year, I was incredibly honored to be nominated for a Hugo award in the Best Professional Artist category, but I was a little shocked to find out there hadn’t been another woman nominated in that category since Rowena Morrill in 1986. That’s more than a little ridiculous, considering there are so many women artists out there who are all amazing, who offer unique points of view and design solutions, and who need more visibility and recognition. While putting this list together, I was really excited to find tons of new artists I'd never heard of before.

My 7 years on dAWow, seven years have passed since I joined this site. That's quite a long time. I still remember how I felt on the first day I signed up, there weren't many sites on which people could actually talk about art, express their feelings, create, be happy or sad, sometimes disappointed. dA has improved so much since it started, and I know there are some mixed feelings concerning this site. Not everyone has a good opinion about it, that's for sure. Some may say that the old dA was better concerning the works submitted. I still think that among all the 'art' sites, it is still the one that has quite a large variety if you know where to look. It's not about the front page, it's not about being popular, it's about making friends that share the same thoughts as you and that are honest in their beliefs and opinions. It's about growing as an artist by reading articles, participating in different events, sharing your work and appreciating other people's works. I once thought that the best th

My top Vocal Trance Songs (July 2012 Update)Art and Music are two of my biggest passions in life. Music is as an important part of my creative process as my camera and editing software. By nature, I am a happy and energetic person. My music of choice is Trance. Comprised of beautiful vocals and uplifting music, Trance is "my" sound. It is what sets my soul free. I don't just listen to trance, I feel it. It is actually my inspiration and my muse. It gives me a direction, sets the moods and atmosphere, giving my work a distinct sensual and sexy feel. ***JULY UPDATE******Andy Moor just released his new album Zero Point One. It has a bunch of really good songs on it*****These are the newest updates to my list. The rest of my faves

Hello CRLiterature!Hello everyone We're in the process of building this group as you know, and it has been wonderful to see so many of you join at late. You may not be a writer per se, you could be someone with a keen interest in literature, or the literature community on dA. You could just be a lurker in search of a home, we like those too.It's all very well and nice joining a group like this, but what is the point of joining without a little interaction right? This is just a small exercise to try and encourage you to talk to others and get interacting! Below are a set of questions, which I would like you all to answer, and also encourage you to reply to others! This may be a great opportunity to meet other members of the community, so I encourage everyone to have a go!1. Your name(s) i.e. your actual name, the name you want to be published by or just what you like to be called.2. Where in the world do you live You can be as broad or as local as you like!

Culinary Creations: Still Life Photography Contest-Culinary Creations-Still Life Food Photography ContestStill life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography! Start Date: Monday 14th May End Date: Monday
