Enchanted lands by pin100
This is great. The composition is especially strong. The transition from light to dark is highly effective in giving the picture variety and the structure is terrific, with two large land features at either end and two small features in the middle, the figure and rainbow, filling the void. The enhanced lightness of the left hand land feature compensates for its smaller size when compared to the shrine on the right and gives the picture balance. The top left and right corners make effective use of negative space to prevent mental overload. In terms of technique, the picture is effectively carried out. However, as it is a speed paint, there is perhaps a little bit lacking in terms of depth in the shadows. Maybe too the white parts of the shrine would have been more defined with more time but I actually prefer them as they are - it makes them look very bright and ethereal.
Greetings awesome people :D !

My name is William and I am a journalist and food writer...in a very junior, not well-established sense. I'm researching a book (or two) on traditional holiday celebration bakes as I feel there is a world of richness which has not been fully brought out. As DA is a pretty international community I thought I'd drop in here and ask what traditional baked goods you and your families have at Christmas and Easter. If anybody has any recipes they would like to share that would be amazing but names is still awesome as I can always do the research myself once I know where to go!

Thanks in advance for any help Cooking Dance - 13 NaNoEmo #17 !
The New Unofficial Coat of Arms of William Axtell by TheStrategos
The New Unofficial Coat of Arms of William Axtell
Is what it says on the tin, really. I grew dissatisfied with my old coat so I painted myself a new one which represents me a bit more creatively. Made with ink, watercolours and GIMP2, though sadly I accidentally destroyed the original.

Demeter reflecting in the sway of a summer's eve
Hi there everyone! So, this is my first Deviation in forever and it feels so good to post again. Hopefully, I can get back to doing so art now and, now I have a scanner once more, I can actually upload my stuff! This piece is inspired by the art of the Minoans and Ancient Greeks with a dash of Art Nouveau and is made from ink, watercolours and a touch of uncle GIMP 2 to improve the scan. I really hope you like it.
