Favorite Feature XXIXI seem to be a bit behind with my watchers deviations, also it was a while now since I did a FF, so here's a huge feature again!
All fantastic artworks, I hope you have checked them out, if not, do it now! I especially have to point out to read the story to this first artwork, it's wonderful!
On an other note, I'm going on vacation now, so I will be off somewhere in Sweden for a couple of weeks. See you in a while!

Get my art on your wallTo sell my art is still a pretty new thing for me, so I want to show you all what I've got for sale right now and where you can buy it.
I recently opened an account at Society6, first I just wanted to make prints easily available for a cheaper prize. But I've also tried adding some other products, here are some of the artworks and products available:
On Esty I put up my self produced products, such as Fine Art prints (limited edition) and postcards. These products will be shipped by me pers
Do you want to write me a comment?In January this year I launched my new website. I wanted it to be a place where you can find my latest artworks and updates, a meeting point beyond social media and most importantly a place for us to interact with each other. You might know the "share/heart" button already. With it you can easily share my artworks on to social media sites or show a friend (I appreciate when my artworks are shared only with full credit).
Still I've been missing the most important thing yet, a way for us to interact directly with each other. So today I'm very happy to introduce the comment function! You are now able to comment directly on my blog posts and to get replies. I really like being able to have that connection with you and to get feedback, I hope that you will think the same!
And I have to once again give my deepest gratitude to DarkerSeptember who have made all of it possible!
Watcher feature IIUpdate: So here is the feature below, and I'm so proud to say that these are my watchers! Check out each others art And if you saw this now and want to join, leave a comment with a thumb to one of your artworks below and I will save it for the next watcher feature!
I've received many new watchers lately, I guess it's mainly because of the DD and for that I'm truly grateful! And I'm really sorry I haven't been able to thank you all personally yet. So I was thinking, why not do a watchers feature again! It was very fun last time, and it gives us a chance to get more familiar with each other! What do you say?
Comment below with a thumb to your favorite or best work and I will feature it here!
Favorite Feature XXIXIt seems like it was a while since I had the time to collect my favorite artworks in a feature, but here we go again! Here's a whole bunch of lovely artworks! Give them love and comments!

UpdatesIt's been some hectic days this past weeks, so many good things has happened. So here's a quick update for you!
I got a DD on my work 'You are never alone' and I'm so overwhelmed with all the feedback and love you have given on it. I know I won't be able to thank you all personally so let me say Thank you so much! here instead And a special thanks to Sserenita who suggested it and jane-beata to feature it, my greatest gratitude to you!
I was on the opening of the summer exhibition last weekend, it was really nice. Hopefully I've got some photos from it soon. And I got to meet the beloved Swedish artist Lasse Åberg, who also enjoyed my work and I his

Imagine that you are a young social worker, dedicated to finding out the hidden and forgotten old souls who haunt the cold, mean streets of the city. You seek to report on their living conditions, possibly recommending they be removed from their roach-infested “homes.”

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

Ten Portrait Photography TipsPeople & Portrait Photography
Check your Angles
Avoid unflattering angles, don't frame your model with their arms or legs chopped off unless it works for the image. If in doubt, fully frame them and do the chopping afterwards in post-processing! Don't forget to check that the tops of their heads and their feet are in focus. Missing feet are disconcerting!
Be the Director
As the Photographer, most people will be looking to you for direction. There's no time to be shy when you're behind the camera! Keep calm to help your model remain relaxed but make sure they're not made to feel awkward if you lack giving instruction. Pose them well, avoid direct bright sunlight and check out your background.
Eye contact...or not
Eye contact isn't always necessary, in fact candid journalistic style photographs often work best. Your subject doesn't have to be looking directly at the camera for it to be a successful shoot, but yo
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

Favorite feature -May the dead be with youSince many of you may celebrate All Hallows' Eve today, or as here in Sweden we celebrate All Saints' Day. I know you call it differently in different parts of the world, but they all seems to be about the same thing, to mourn the loved ones that have died. Therefor I want this feature to be in memory of our dead ones. Cause I believe they are still here with us, closer than we think.
