It's difficult to find job, and so on, and so on So, few years ago i found my love and something i want to do till the day i die, and that is photography and photomanipulation. I started to reading and learning about that, and all by myself i bought my first digital camera, and now i realize how expensive that branch of art really is I really want to change how people in Croatia are looking at art, and someday i want to help kids who don't have art school or plenty of money, just to show them other way I need money for new equipment, lenses, and i want to travel to see other cultures and ofc, take photos My wallet : AcUa77JARzu2ows5FjguBdaeKsAB1kYg3U My LR presets for sale : https://gumroad.com/l/BKZj My prints : https://www.redbubble.com/people/DarkIndigo?asc=u Thanks for reading and here you can find my work: https://www.instagram.com/dark_indigox/ http://dark-indigo.deviantart.com/ Have a great day...;)

    This week's ArtByte Artist Showcase Winner is painter, Fabian Zolar from Germany! He is the winner of 5,000 ArtByte and will be featured all week on our 150,000+ art community! Street Art How Fabian describes his work: "I am freelance visual artist from Germany. My work is all about the contemporary world we live in. Starting with Graffiti and Streetart in 1995, my style is heavily influenced by that. As well , still working on the streets with the direct connection to people, who don´t have to cross a gallery door to see my artwork, is a big inspiration and part of my work. Last years I spent many hours on working to find abstract patterns that underly letter Graffiti, found different patterns, and one of these you can see in the image posted. It is painted with acrylics on canvas and measures about 150x150 cm." You can see more of his work on the ArtByte Forum here.

    Yana Movchan, 1971 | Magic Realism painter Ukrainian-born Canadian painter* Yanina (Yana) Movchan was born in Kiev. Yana’s sublime mastery of the technique and structure of Renaissance painting* combines with the instinctive symbolism* of "magical realism" to create a personal neo-realist idiom. Her work is formal, yet playful; contemporary, yet timeless; and joyous, yet mysterious, evocative and dreamlike. In Yana’s paintings, the intellectual and the emotional synthesize to form images that touch the viewer’s heart whilst issuing a challenge: there are deeper meanings to be unraveled, hidden clues amongst the hyper-real still lives, portraits and animal scenes; meanings which echo deep in the unconscious mind. Reviewers have compared Movchan’s work to Velasquez, Colville and Magritte*. Yana trained at the Ukrainian Art Academy. Her master’s thesis project (a triptych entitled "Life on Earth") won the Golden Fund Prize, the Academy’s highest art award*. Her work has featured in solo and group exhibitions in the Ukraine, Prague, London and Canada. She is based in Halifax, Canada, where she lives with her husband and two young sons. AWARDS 2007 - Glenn Gould Foundation commission. Commemorative portrait of the celebrated pianist to mark the 75th anniversary of his birth. 2001 - Best Painting Award*, Annual Juried Show, Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. 1995 - Golden Fund Prize (the highest art award in the Ukrainian Art Academy) for "Life on Earth" (triptych, oil on canvas). 1989 - Ukrainian Art Academy Award* of Excellence for "Thoughts of Harmony" (oil on canvas). Painting accepted into the National Art Museum of Ukraine collection. "Thoughts of Harmony" received the highest possible marks and was later purchased by the Museum. La pittrice Yanina (Yana) Movchan è nata a Kiev, Ucraina. La sua pittura di stampo rinascimentale si combina col "realismo magico" creando un personalissimo stile neo-realista. Il suo lavoro è stato paragonato da molti critici a quello di Velasques, Colville e Magritte. Ha tenuto mostre personali e collettive in Ucraina, Praga, Londra e Canada. Ha sede a Halifax, Canada, dove vive con il marito e due figli. FOR MORE SUCH ARTWORKS & ARTISTS' FOLLOW SUJITH PUTHRAN

    bitcoin doesnot show any upward movement

    I don't know if it's a feasible goal to have a situation cleared up. Crypto is just starting: there are no clear references, market expectations are not clearly setup, use cases under development, regulatory framework is still embrionary. Volatiliyt is going to be our companion for quite a lot, but I don't think it's negative. Do you think that the pioneers introducing electricity or railway system in their countries had more clarity than the one we have? Let's be patient, and escape from FUD. As we have talked here many times if you're worried about ups and downs your time horizont is just too short.

    Alberto Pancorbo, 1956 | Fantastic Realism painter Born in the city of Soria (Spain) Pancorbo begins to paint from a very early age in his native city. At the age of 18 he transferred to the city of Barcelona with the ultimate goal to dedicate himself only to painting. In 1980 he became an exclusive artist of Sala Gaudi (Barcelona), which exposed his paintings for the first time in the international fair of art of Basilea (Swiss). He began a period of exhibitions in different cities of Spain and overseas. In many of these exhibitions he obtained numerous Awards in various art contests. In 1985 he holds his first exhibition in Madrid and is awarded the "Artist revelation of the year" by the magazine Correo Del Arte de Madrid. The first publication detailing the paintings of Pancorbo is published in Barcelona in 1986 and afterward he moves to his new residence in Bogotá (Colombia) where he holds numerous exhibitions. He also exhibits his work in the United States, Mexico and others countries of the Americas. He successfully participates in numerous art fairs and auctions including world famous Sotheby's (New York). In 1994 the book "Labyrinths of the Soul" by Pancorbo is published, compiling great selections of his paintings. The book is featured in several publications of realistic art as well as other famous publications. His works are displayed in different private and public collections throughout the Americas and Europe. In 1998 Pancorbo moved to Miami where he lives now, a city in which he has had numerous exhibitions since 1990. The basis of Pancorbo's technical mastery is a traditional and complete art education, a method of training that provided discipline and total understanding of the media of painting. With his knowledge and extraordinary ability to paint, Pancorbo creates his own original and personal style outside the formality of the academic tradition. Alberto Pancorbo è nato a Soria (Spagna) il 18 aprile del 1956. Nel 1980, è diventato un artista esclusivo di Sala Gaudi (Barcellona). Vincitore di numerosi premi, le sue opere sono esposte in diverse collezioni pubbliche e private in America, Europa e Asia. Nel 1998, si trasferisce a Miami dove vive attualmente. Visitare i labirinti dell'immaginazione di Pancorbo significa confrontarsi con simboli antichi e moderni. Essi alludono alla solitudine dell'esistenza umana, immersa nel caos della vita urbana, nel quale i valori tradizionali vengono persi o si svuotano di significato. Attraverso una perfetta tecnica realistica Pancorbo cerca di rendere plausibili e convincenti le sue visioni improbabili, oniriche o fantastiche.

    A hello

    My favourite person in the world is Strawberry Singh and when she posted about this site I thought I would come and join and look at what there is. I was pleased to see a virtual community in here so chose to join. Im no great artist. I am a person who enjoys blogging and vlogging and enjoys using digital imagery for this. There is something incredibly calming to me about both filming and photographing in a virtual way and I have been doing so for most of my virtual online experience. I cannot use Photoshop, try as I may Im just useless so most photos I do are pretty raw and only has a slight edit in terms of some filters on a basic free program called Fotor. My passion is filming and so I have a YouTube channel on which I post regularly. I often vlog on there and talk about real topics using my virtual persona. I have no idea what this virtual wallet is but I saw that you get one of these so I have set it up. It is ANoizGqM7GngM7WuD34TGTG2y8o97dJ8Nq

    Bittersweet prologue

    Bittersweet Prologue Casey, though struggling and tired, finally reaches the top of the cliff. She turns her head, and ten feet in front of her is a mountain lion standing on top of a boulder, staring her down. She stumbles backward, caught of guard by the presence of the animal, and falls to the ground. Her head hangs over the cliff causing her neck and jaw muscles to cramp up, sending shocks of pain down her back. Taking her eyes off the big cat for just a second, she looks over the edge of the cliff, knowing she could fall off. Turning back to the animal, she looks into its beautiful blue marble eyes. He must be deciding how to attack me, she thinks. I am so vulnerable and my only option is not to fall off the edge. Steadying her composure, she takes a deep breath and narrows her eyes to look as mean and fearless as she can. He knows he has her right where he wants her. With an evil smirk and a twinkle in his eyes, the lion knows his dinner is right in front of him. She watches the mountain lion slightly bend his knees as it digs into the boulder, and then it quickly jumps down to the same level as her. He slightly opens his mouth, showing his sharp teeth that he wants to dig into her, gives a loud hissing sound, and licks his lips. Casey knows she must survive; she has to protect herself from the pain that is about to be inflicted upon her. She must think fast on what to do next; he is coming for her. Unable to move from the fear and shock that has taken over her body, she watches the lion ready to pounce. Suddenly Komodo reaches the top of the cliff and jumps right between them. Everything is happening so fast she cannot wrap her head around it... Bittersweet releases June 15th. You can pre-order today at https://www.indigoriverpublishing.com/books/

    Rodd Lopes

    Hello World!

    Hello everyone. My name is Rodrigo Lopes, aka Rodd Lopes. I'm from Brazil and have been drawing and painting since I was a small child. I never used traditional media, which means I've always used digital ways to create my art. Well, except for the time I was a child and used paper and pencil :). Today I paint and draw in Photoshop, Procreate (Ipad) and Sketchbook Pro. I don't have a certain recognizable style if you will. Some people say they can see something in common in all my artworks but I'm not so sure, I usually paint very different themes as Sci-Fi, landscapes, portraits etc. I really don't consider myself a professional artist, first because I don't work with art, I have a job which is quite far from creating art, secondly because I think I still have a long way to go, there are so many things I'm still struggling to learn. I'm a self-taught artist, actually I'm self-taught in pretty much all I know in life, English included. My mother language is Brazilian Portuguese. I like making friends and talking about art, movies, series and books. I'm outgoing and friendly towards everyone. I hope you guys like my artwork. Thanks for having me in this Forum.

    The photographic realism in Second Life®: a question of style. The question may seem provocative, in fact, it’s a question I’ve been thinking about for a few days. In particular, I wonder when it is relevant that there is realism in a portrait of a SL® avatar. [READ ALL]

    Loui Jover, 1967 | Abstract /Surrealist painter Loui Jover is an Australian based painter with a unique style of art. He basically uses ink on pages from vintage books to create eye-catching and emotionally charged images of women’s faces. His images also incorporate couples in intensely emotional states. His works have been hailed as truly creative and emotional. As an avid artist who draws every single day creating books of cartoons and drawings, Loui has travelled extensively all over Europe and Asia. "Dipingo, disegno, e lo faccio tutti i giorni". Loui Jover, pittore europeo emigrato in Australia, dipinge su fragili pagine di libri d'epoca per creare immagini emotivamente cariche di volti di donne accattivanti. L’artista ritrae scene melanconiche che risaltano notevolmente sulle pagine ingiallite. Lui stesso dice che "c’è un senso di fragilità in queste immagini che trovo interessante (come se il vento potesse soffiarle via in qualsiasi momento) e la mano che disegna rigide linee nere contro l’intricata selva di parole stampate nelle pagine del libro offre una strana fusione e profondità" e che "il significato di ciascuna illustrazione può essere interpretabile dall'osservatore e dalla propria immaginazione".
