Happy 14th birthday, dA!
In just a few days, I'll be celebrating my own milestone - 3 years on dA!
So much has happened since I entered this awesome community: I made new friends and saw some of the most wonderful and exquisite artworks on this site. One of my most favourite artworks ever is Vitaly-Sokol's 'Sunset Ocean Wave - a gorgeous, vibrant shot which embodies the essence of the sea
Because of this constant exposure to great art and tutorials, I've grown so much as an artist. The people on dA have inspired me to push my creative limits and to always be passionately curious.
The support you find here is truly remarkable - and I've learned that people will believe in you and your abilities even when you don't. My first DD, received a week ago, was a lovely surprise and it came during a time when I was feeling pretty low as an artist. Now I'm determined to keep shooting and improving my skills
Here are a few summer favourites that I've stumbled upon over the last few days: This beautiful lily is such a fresh, summery shot, made even more colourful by that pretty backlight I love the movement of her locks and the simplicity of the composition - it gives off a very carefree, wind-in-your-hair vibe I've been following LuizaLazar for a while, and she has some of the prettiest, most colourful shots of nature I've seen. This one reminds me of warm summer sunsets and picnics Moving to traditional art, I just had to share this gorgeous painting made by the talented takmaj Santorini has never looked more stunning
And lastly, I want to feature the amazing works of digital artist/black-magic-practitioner tatasz
. If you're not familiar with fractal art, check out her gallery for some jaw-dropping artworks I could stare and wonder at these beautiful fractal designs for ages. The use of light and colour brings out intricate shapes and textures.
