The Luminarium #23: Kibernetik
In our 23rd exhibit, we have explored the cybernetic & cyberpunk universes and our take on the idea of a Kibernetik future.
With over 30 pieces our artists have approached the theme in a variaty of ways and each presented their own unique visions of the Cyberpunk environment by creating stunning pieces about computer systems, mechanical structures, symbiotic biological & cognitive organisms.
This exhibition presents a crossing between advanced technoligical surroundings and post-apocalyptic worlds.

8th DD and Lum #22 Coming SoonSo today I received my 8th DD which is a pretty awesome early birthday present. It was for a piece made for theluminarium's last release Elements. So I do need to say a few thank yous for it, firstly and most importantly to jk3y who collabed with me on it, and frankly did the whole making it pretty part (I provided the renders and some early postwork/scene setting, he did the focal point, jazzy lighting and jellyfishes), hats off to you mate, this is as much your DD as mine! Secondly I have to thank both :devsavagefrong: and PolyMune for suggesting and featuring it respectively! Thank you all.
Also it is getting close to the release of The Luminarium's 22nd release, there are some really sick pieces in it and a couple of fantastic debuts so get excited!
Finally myself and agiaco are putting together the final touches to IN's next website, it is has had a much more organised development than the last incarnation and ha
Lum #21: Elements Released
For our 21st release we have decided to explore those fundamental building blocks of life, the elements. Be they the ones that the ancients first believed in; Earth, Air, Fire and Water; or the modern periodic table elements.
Without these basic pieces we would be nothing and we hope to have done their majesty justice. Elements contains over 40 pieces of art and music with contributions from old hands like our founder Jorik Dozey all the way through to the debuts of Courtney Wooster and Breli.

I've got 6 pieces in here, a mini-series of 4, another solo piece and a collab. Probably my biggest haul yet as it were. Go check it all out!
IN13 IS LIVELots of work, many months and one dead art collective revived later, we're back with our monumental 13th experiment! Check it out deviants (:
Some say thirteen is an unlucky number. We like to think differently here. Ironically, Intrinsic Nature returns feeling luckier than ever, featuring Experiment 13 on our brand new website. After a long, unanticipated hiatus and hopeful return, IN13 doesn't disappoint. The online gallery is jam-packed with a wide range of digital art and photography featuring the old and the new from our core of talented artists. And Don't worry, we have plenty of music tracks to keep your ears occupied while you get lost in the artwork.
IN13 unveils 54 works of art from 73 international artists. Don't forget to check out the exclusive interviews with our featured artists Macabre, Pezcado and Dyst. So wait no longer! Enter IN13 and experience what you've been craving ever since we mysteriously vanished from the web!
We're back folks!

DD #7: Jump GateSo I received my 7th Daily Deviation yesterday which was a really awesome thing to wake up to, really unexpected as well (although I guess DDs always are)! A big thank you to alltheoriginalnames for featuring Jump Gate, and a lot of love to everyone who has faved it and watched me since I really appreciate the support everyone on here gives me!
Also for those who don't know anyway Jump Gate was made for The Luminarium's 20th release which is a big milestone for us, and our best release to date. You should all check it out (click on the image below).
The Luminarium #20: Adventure
The Luminarium is proud to present our 20th exhibit Adventure! It is quite a milestone for us and we are glad to share with you what is our biggest, and quite possibly best, release yet. Adventure explores that inner curiosity that drives so much of humanities achievements. That desire to know what is over the horizon, what is beyond the next turn. The Luminarium has been quite an adventure for many of us over the course of our 20 releases and long may it continue into the future. Adventure holds over 50 pieces of artwork and music, with pieces from old hands like Glenn Clovis, Chris Cold and Alex Fralin, some outstanding work from Kuldar Leement as well as some notable debut's from Erik Schumacher, Anna Hollinrake, Matthias Utomo, Jakob Hansson and Scott Steadman. Come and Join us on our Adventure.

Ask The LuminariumFor our 20th release, we are going to be doing something a little different in regards to our featured artist. We are going to feature the whole artists group, after all without them and their hard work we are nothing.
In respect to this we are looking for questions from you guys and girls! Ask anything you would like to know about our artists, about life in the group, inspiration sources, favourite pieces and so on. We will get various artists from across the group to answer your questions!
You can send us your question by commenting on our DA journal (http://theluminarium.deviantart.com/journal/Ask-The-Luminarium-352635240), posting on our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Luminarium/314548108048) or by tweeting to us (https://twitter.com/theluminarium)

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
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

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

This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .

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.
