A Glimpse into Hyperrealism Art
Hyperrealism is a genre of painting and sculpture that resembles a high quality Photograph, It's the type of art that your mind might not accept it as a hand-made artwork. Hyperrealism is far more advanced than Photorealism by the methods used to create the resulting paintings or sculptures. The term is primarily applied to an independent art movement and art style in the United States and Europe that has developed since the early 2000s.
Hyperrealistic paintings are the k
A glimpse into Baroque Art
Baroque is an art movement from the 17th century, that resulted from the religious wars of the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter Reformation. Religious faith reached an emotional height and the intense feeling, which inspired both faiths, produced a rich expression in art.
The term baroque implies a certain roughness, and the stormy paintings and dramatic music of the Baroque period often possessed the rugged torment of emotion. The French used the word "Baroque" to mean "a painting in which the rules of proportion are not observed and everything is represented according to the artist's whim." In the 17th century, art was naturalistic rather than ideal, and emotional rather than rational-art of movement, vitality, and brilliant color. Subjects could be chosen from daily life, as well as antiquity and the Bible, and presented to
The art of Hajime Sorayama❦ Introduction,
Hajime Sorayama is a Japanese illustrator, born in 1947. Known for his precisely detailed, erotic hand painted portrayals of women and feminine robots.
Hajime Sorayama is known world-wide for his imaginative and highly accomplished paintings of beautiful women. Using brush, pencil and acrylic paint, airbrushing only finishing details, he creates memorable images in a hyper-realistic style. He is often referred to as the contemporary Vargas by those familiar with his pin-up style works, and is respected by artists and illustrators for his perfect technique.
In retrospect, Sorayama's work has been remarkably prescient. Beginning in the 1970s and evolving into the 21st century, the futuristic aura of the robotic, mythic and fantastical figures in his art have always been ahead of their time.
Much of Sorayama

A Glimpse into Futurism Art❖ Introduction
Futurism was an avant-garde artistic and social movement founded by the Italian writer, Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, originated in Italy in the early 20th century. It emphasized and glorified themes related to the modern concepts of the future, including speed, technology, machinery, violence and objects such as cars, airplanes and industrial cities. It was largely an Italian phenomenon, though there were parallel movements in Russia and England.
Futurist ideology influenced all types of art. It began in literature but spread to every medium, including painting, sculpture, industrial design, architecture, cinema and music.
Futurism exalted the dynamism of the modern world, especially in science and technology. It employs techniques of Divisionism, Cub

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your art style.
Hey there, I am an independent self-taught painter from Slovakia. As for my art style, I do a lot of watercolour / mixed media experiments on paper, depicting people and figures, but what I do with oil and acrylic on canvas is completely different.
How did you find out about dA?
A friend invited me to join, he is a member for long years. I was skeptical at first, but today I can't imagine functioning without dA. If brings a great deal of inspiration into my everyday life.

Printing: From the Far East to the Printing PressIllustrations have been hand drawn for many centuries. But as the demand for the distribution of illustration and text increased, people developed printing techniques, and over time this would turn into what we now know as the printing press, the mass production of illustration and text.
Let us take a look at the Far East first, in particular China and Japan where print has been traditionally used as early as the 7th century. The Chinese have been using woodblock printing since the Tang Dynasty (7th Century). This method of printing quickly spread to other East Asian countries, including Japan. The earliest complete survival of a dated printed book is the Diamond Sutra (Buddhist text). This of course ties into one of the most famous Chinese inventions, paper!
"It was the Chinese who really discovered the means of communication that was to dominate until our age."
A. Hyatt Mayor
Wood block printing was used in the production of books such as
PapercuttingsPapercutting is an art form that has been seen all over the world, adapted to regional styles based on cultures. It should come as no surprise that the Chinese have the earliest forms of papercutting currently known to us as the 'ancestor to paper' has been found in China. This was dated as far back as 2nd century B.C. and is considered as important as their discovery of printmaking, gunpowder and the compass.
Thessatoria's It's Your Life
Naturally as paper spread throughout the world this art form evolved, spreading all over the Far East through to the Middle East. For example Japanese Kirigami where origami folds are cut and Indian Sanjhi.
This art form is popular to this very day, take renowned British artist Rob Ryan, which I am sure many of you here would have at least seen his work before! His work has been seen printed over everything you can think of, kitchenware, clothes, books and probably more!

Today it's the talented jonniedee
Hi jonniedee, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
The artwork that I produce has a few different styles. I play with more
than one look in order to keep myself from feeling stale. The styles are
black and white photojournalism/street photography, vintage aesthetic,
surreal and abstract.
What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?
What attracts me to traditional art is the intimacy involved. When art
is hand made, patience is demanded. An person can't just pick up a
camera or paint brush for the first time and start making masterpiece
photographs or paintings . Time is needed for practice and the
accumulation of the sk
Art History: Discovering Dali
Salvador Dali was born in Spain in 1904 and has been best known and recognised throughout the years for his surrealist, ambiguous works. Dali is responsible for inspiring a plethora of artists to create, combine and step outside of their comfort zones. Many know him for his paintings, but actually like many modern artists today, Dali traversed the fields of the artistic world to pick up talents in Writing, Photography, Sculpture and Film.
Dali was not famous for his methods. That's one of the mistakes that people make when tracing his history or seeking him out for inspiration. Dali's methods were much the same as anybody else's. However his concepts trumped them all and made him what he is remembered for today. He achieved his effects through a mastery of perspective
and a critical eye for color and shape, symmetry and innuendo. It is this realization that opens up the market for future dali-esque artists. There's nothing unusual behind the crea

Art History: John William Waterhouse:iconarthistoryproject: :iconcommunityrelations:
A man of some mystery John William Waterhouse, most affectionately known throughout his lifetime as 'Nino" was born in Rome to his English parents William and Isabella during the wonder years of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood who set the art world alight.
It was his Italian beginnings that first influenced his artistic style as a young man first at school in Leeds, then later at his fathers studio in London where he entered the coveted Royal Academy of Arts at the age of 21, not as a painter; but as a sculptor. Six months later his probationary term ended and he was fully enrolled as a student leading to his first painting exhibits.

Leonardo da Vinci's Anatomical DrawingsIf getting your gear together and heading out for an evening of life drawing sounds like more trouble than it's worth, consider what Leonardo da Vinci endured for the sake of educating his own singular vision.
Rumors of da Vinci resorting to grave robbery persist to this day, but the truth is that he was allowed to dissect and study corpses at the Hospital of Santa Maria Nuova in Florence.
Leonardo da Vinci's studies of the human skull in 1489 borrowed three-dimensional drawing techniques from architecture that had never been seen applied to anatomical studies before. A new technical vocabulary for anatomical drawings was created and da Vinci's sketches in plan, section, elevation, and perspective marked a massive progression in how the body was documented.
Criticized for his undertaking, Leonardo passionately defended the purpos

Today it's the delightful SRudy
Hi SRudy, tell us a little about yourself and your style of Art.
Hi, I´m a surreal artist, I love drawing / painting surreal-themed artworks. Since I really like both surreal art and the classical renaissance realism, I try my best to mix them most of the time.
What is it that attracts you to Traditional Art?
What I love about traditional art is its originality, and how almost everything can be done using traditional tools...
How much do you think that the roots and origins of Art affect what we create today?
Although that art is creating and improving, I believe that we're
Golden Age of Illustration
When in the second half of the 19th century newspapers and illustrated books became popular and widespread thanks to improvements in printing technology, many artists found their base to spread their skills. The official time span of the Golden Age of Illustration is said to be from 1880s to 1920s, but it varied a little bit between Europe and America.
While European illustrators were influenced mostly by the Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau and Post-Impressionists (especially by Les Nabis, a group of Parisian artists), their American colleagues focused around Howard Pyle's Brandywine School of American Illustration in the Brandywine Valley.
Amongst the most popular artists of this time we find Arthur Rackham (UK), Howard Pyle (US), Ivan Bilibin (Russia), Theodor Kittelsen (Norway), Edmund Dulac (France), John Bauer (Sweden), Beatrix Potter (UK), N.C. Wyeth (US), Sulamith Wülfing (
Surrealism on DeviantArtA small introduction:
Surrealism was an artistic movement, founded in Paris 1924 by André Breton. Dedicated to expressing the imagination as revealed in dreams – it's when artists create dreamlike paintings filled with familiar objects that have been changed in a weird way that you would not see in reality.

IronmanHear me read it
My friends used to call William "Ironman" because the first time we kissed he got a nosebleed and the taste of his blood haunted me for a long time after it. We'd only been twelve years old and apparently the anxiety spiked his blood pressure to the point of combustion... I remember that when we were forced to take sex ed a few years later we were divided into separate classes for boys and girls, in case a diagram of an ovary was too risqué and we became animalistic and started clawing at each other in our seats, but nonetheless when our teacher Ms Jacobs had explained to us what an erection was in my mind all I could picture was the blood rushing to his nose and then the slash of cranberry across my blouse.
With the idea planted in his mind it didn't take long for William's hands to start wandering, but the image persisted. Every time I thought about just letting it happen I wondered what would happen if he got too excite
