My Digital ArtworksI do digital artworks, too! But I don't post them In here, I feel that my deviantart account should be restricted to my traditional pieces.
So, I decided to post a few in a journal, rather than submitting them to the gallery.
I hope you like them.
DeviantArt's App ReviewBefore I start I would like to specify that I'm running DeviantArt's app on an iPhone 5 running iOS 8. The iPhone 5 has a 4 inch screen, with a 1,136 × 640 pixels retina display.
TL;DR: It's a nice app but I like to comment on the littlest things.
Starting with the icon, I'm still not a huge fan of the logo. But it's a nice icon that follows the UI guidelines of the iOS 7 design language. And I'm really fine with it, it looks good on my homescreen.
When I first opened the application I couldn't differ where a post starts and ends because it's too crowded. I don't know about other bigger screens but I'm giving a review based on my humble 4 inch display. Then I noticed how dark the application is. I personally expected more deviant green, at least the new green. Titles are written with blue turquoise and the background is a consistent black-grey gradient with a 45º diagonal shade that never changes (this
Dear DeviantARTI understand that changes are essential, whether it’s in term of design or usability. I’ve been using DeviantART for 6 years and a half and in these past years, DeviantART has changed a lot, and I embraced every change. I love changes! (except for the new hideous logo - of course) I love the new layout design and I love the way DeviantART introduced status posts and mentions, these are some really cool stuff.
But I’m concerned about something. I’ve been waiting for deviantART to bring the footer back but I think I’ve waited long enough and I’m sure now, that there’s no way it’s coming back.
I repeat, changes are essential, but if these changes are limiting a user’s activity, you should rethink it.
Back when we had a footer, we had the ability to set “channels” and most users had the channel set to Daily Deviations… Now, what are Daily Deviations? Daily Deviations are FEATURED artworks, they change every 24 hours, a
My DeviantART StoryHello guys, It's deviantART's 14th birthday, and I decided to write my deviant art story for you.
Back in 2007, I discovered DeviantART through a friend of mine, we used to be so into the metal band "Nightwish" and we used to appreciate the emotional photo manipulation artworks in here, especially the ones of MySweetDarkness. I decided to create an account to give feedback for the artworks I liked, I created my first account with a really silly username, I'm not going to share it, though.
So anyway, after a while I realised that my username is really stupid and we didn't have the ability to change usernames back then, so I created a new account on Jun 8th, 2008 and I named it Rudz-is-me (that's not better either).
I started uploading my art to dA and I made some really great friends. Especially darkredbbb who is my best friend now.
Here are two artwor
I updated my personal website. It's now my tumblr blog. I switched from dA Portfolios to Tumblr for the lack of updates (sadly) And I wanted you guys to check it out the new design!
Thanks for checking out!
And I made the good old dA Portfolio linked to portfolio.rudychidiac.com
The Trad-DadThe other day I was chatting with STelari on Skype as usual.
Then she mentioned something she's working on, i won't talk much just see by yourself:
So the Trad-dad image in my head inspired me so much that I painted him on Procreate (Yes, Ironically the trad-dad is done digitally)
And here it is!
Ps: I'm not the trad-dad

Collection: Shine A Light
Shine a Light
Light means so many things in our lives beyond mere illumination.
Cinematographers call the hour just before the sun sets “the magic hour.” Movie producers and directors schedule the shooting of love scenes and other important moments in their script to take advantage of the powerful effect that “magic hour” sunlight subliminally exerts on our psyches. The Dutch master painters of the 17th century were expert in focusing the eye on the “story

Duel of the fates
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
Collection: Celestial Illusions
Back when it was common knowledge that the sun and all the planets revolved around our Earth, the phenomena of solar and lunar eclipses were mysterious and terrifying occurrences. Were the gods unhappy with us? Were these heavenly messages indicating the End of Days had arrived? Emperors and kings often felt a familial connection with the Sun, and so feared its temporary withdrawal from the sky to be a warning of its unhappiness with royal actions. Desp

Julien Coquentin (bwiti) is a French “street art” photographer who captures people interacting with their environments, usually public spaces.
Sometimes the photos are “natural” captures in the moment. Sometimes the subjects are posed to become a part of the scene, sometimes as a comment on or extension of existing atmospheric art in the background, like graffiti (as in his series, “Please Draw me a Wall.”)
Tomasz Opasinski: So You Wanna Be In Pictures
Entertainment Advertising Creative Director
When his dream of one day being Captain of a naval vessel was taken away from him due to his irreparable poor eyesight, Tomasz Opasinski turned to his most powerful talent in life: he could draw and paint. Still in his native Poland, he enrolled in the School of Advertising, taking courses in computers and publishing.
The Polish Navy’s loss was an incalculable gain for worldwide creative arts lovers, especially fans of movies and the innovative movie poste
Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
Deviousness - May 2015
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
My name is Jeffrey Cruz and I'm a Melbourne-based Comic book Artist that goes under the pen-name of 'Chamba'. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, back when I would copy images of Transformers from the back of the toy packaging. That year, my Love for creating art was born.
During my first year of University back in 2003, I was introduced to DeviantArt as part of class task to join an 'online community', something that was very foreign to me. Being part of DeviantArt had allowed me to open up my eyes to the variety of styles that existed beyond my own backyard and of the people who created such works. Throughout the years I've not only made life-long fr
Guy Fawkes Day
Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes
