Monday Munchies Every Monday, I will be featuring a single deviant's artwork. The deviant may be known or unknown, and may have received accolades or joined deviantART last week.

I also include a short description about the artist and/or what draws me to their work. Riemea Kathi | TumblrRiemea is an incredible artist, and one of the coolest deviants out there. This beautiful piece caught my eye today, because of how the shadows, and the shades simply fade and work together in perfect harmony. She also has incredible other pieces in her gallery, well worth your time!

MishkinaInga Medvedeva | FacebookI was introduced to Mishkina when she was featured by DistortedSmile last week. I was intrigued by the style that was used, a very simple, but at the same time complex lighting source with a wonderful model. The use of such low light and such a slim depth of field made this piece incredibly interesting.

10 Tips to Improve your Digital ArtA while ago I posted some tips on how to improve your art. While that article was rather general, this one is an addition to it, focusing on digital drawing and painting – so make sure to read both.It's made for beginners, so it's just really basic stuff. I hope it's helpful!:iconCutebow1plz::iconCutebow2plz::iconCutebow1plz:1. Get a tabletOf course there are artists who create beautiful pictures with a mouse, but trust me, drawing with a graphics tablet is more natural and a lot easier once you're used to it.Tablets have one big advantage over mouses: Pen pressure. Depending on how hard you press the line gets thicker and darker or thinner and lighter, similar to a real pen on real paper. I'd recommend getting a small, cheap Wacom tablet to start out. Also make sure your tablet always has the newest drivers installed! You can download them on the Wacom website.More information about tablets
Collection: GlassesShare|ArchiveGlassesIt would seem counter-intuitive that a person wearing glasses—i.e., a person in need of a device to properly identify and understand incoming visual perceptual information—would be assumed to be more rather than less intellectually gifted.

Others suppose they were plans for hunts, no different from a coach’s football plays.Today we are learning of abstract artworks on the cave walls, seemingly deliberately hidden, and much farther back, painted by medicine men huffing hallucinogenic herbs. The purpose for these totemic abstracts is unclear. While native art worldwide retained its
Collection: Blue HarvestShare|ArchiveBlue HarvestThe Harvest time of year represents the last heroic exertion of labor to gather in for storage the bounty of crops to sustain life through the approaching Autumn and Winter. The health and relative comfort of an entire village or settlement, or a single remote homestead, through the cold and barren months, depends on a successful harvest. A blighted harvest means fear and prayers that the winter will be mild and of short duration, that the limited food might provide enough sustenance. In modern society, the Harvest has come to represent receiving just and due reward for any endeavor one has worked long and hard to make a success. But this gallery of
