Digital Mixed Media Monthly, Vol. 9
Each article of Digital Mixed Media Monthly will feature some of the best artists and artworks from the Digital Art > Mixed Media Gallery submitted in the past month.
Thank you to those who have helped in choosing the thumbs and artists to be featured!  By having more than one member help with the articles I hope to provide a wide range of styles/techniques giving a broader example of what can be found in the Digital Art > Mixed Media Gallery, and to help with the continuing education of what is and isn't Digital Mixed Media.
Remember these are only works that consist of 2 or more combined digital mediums (3d, photos, painting, etc.) from the Digital Mixed Media Gallery.

Community Projects Giving Thanks

Hi Friends!
I posted the following in a recent journal and the response I got was amazing:

"You know--We hear rants and raves and bitches and moans but I LOVE :devart: ...I really don't understand all the whining. No one has to stay part of this community. It is a huge Internet world out there...."

I went on to list some of the reasons I love dA and why I am grateful, you can find them here: "dA Rocks My World."
I got more responses than any other of my journal posts and 100% were positive about dA!! Can you believe it?
I have been saving some of the responses because I knew this project would be underway. Here is what some deviants said:
allym007 said "dA is a wonderful community... I have made great friends here and even my mum and my daughter have joined... some of my personal friends too ! We are having the best time there..."
yorkey-sa said "Yeah i totally agree, i also

ONE Presents: The Touch Contest
The Touch Contest
n. that sense by which anything material is perceived by means of physical contact.
For this deviously ONEderful contest, I've decided to choose only one of the five senses to motivate your creative genius. Not sight, hearing, taste, or smell, but touch. It is the basis of society, the tool of technology, and the reason we went out with that girl last Friday. The sense of touch influences our daily lives in a way no other sense can. Deviants must create an image that somehow depicts the sense of touch.
All works of art should be completely original (Started and finished after discovering this contest.)All entries must be created using a visual medium. Fine Art mediums will generally be accepted; Photographs, Paintings/Drawings, Digital Paintings/Drawings, and Sculptures are all great. Please stay away from emoticons and other similar art forms.Mature content within entr

Remembrance Day 2007 - We Will Remember Them
The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on 11th November 1918, to signal the end of World War One.
At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare.
What is Remembrance Day?
Remembrance Day is on 11 November. It is a special day set aside to       remember all those men and women who were killed during the two World Wars and other conflicts. At one time the day was known as Armistice Day and was renamed Remembrance Day after the Second World War. Remembrance Sunday is held on the second Sunday in November, which is usually the Sunday nearest to 11 November. Special services are held at war memorials and churches all over Britain. A national ceremony takes place at the cenotaph in Whitehall, London.
Remembrance Day is also known as Poppy Day, because it is traditional to wear an artificial poppy. They are sold by th

Artists For Charity: The Logo Contest Winners
Artists For Charity: The Logo Contest Winners
A little late, but better late than never! After an extended debate (The entries were all so good, we had a hard time deciding!) we settled on three winners. So without further ado...
The Winners
Third Place:
With so many awesome entries, it was difficult to chose just one. However the #3 plate became one of our favourites, mainly for it's clever use of the initials of Artists For Charity in making the suggestion of a globe.
Prize is fridge magnets from the ArtistsForCharity store
Second Place:
Absolutely charming. Clean, simple, and well executed. Some of us found the suggestion of a potbelly to be unique and endearing.
Prize is a mousepad, also from the ArtistsForCharity store
First Place:
Stunning. The concept is well thought out, and clearly conveys the idea of making the world a better place.

Fan Art and Celebrities Explained!
This article is meant to explain the relationship between Fan Art, celebrities, and the characters they portray.
First and foremost:
Portraits, pictures, photographs, drawings, paintings, etc. of a celebrity themselves (not in character) are not Fan Art.
Any artwork you create, or photograph you take which is of a celebrity themselves, be it portrait, full body, or somewhere in between should always be uploaded into the proper corresponding gallery (digital, traditional, photography etc.) in the people/portraits category.

All of the above examples are not Fan Art, and reside in their respective galleries.
Furthermore artworks depicting rock stars, sport stars, etc. are also not considered to be Fan Art and should be uploaded into their rightful galleries under the people or portraits category.
So what about artworks or photographs that portray the celebrity as a character he/she has acted as or performed

About deviantART...
You’ll find me all over the site. Usually while chatting I can be found on Skype with friends from the interwebs. I take kindly to any suggestions so pass them along if you have any.

About me...

I’m interested in history, religion, politics, sports, media, music, theater, dance, philosophy, art, and basically the human experience, which is why I think I find our community to truly be home.

Current Residence: copy and paste this link for more info than you probably ever wanted to know about me heh

I've been ridiculously busy. Working as a GIS intern for the city I live in, and this is exactly what I'm fighting for. It's what I want to do, and this internship has reinforced that. Nice to have that.
