Celebrating Diversity #38The idea of Celebrating Diversity is that it challenges us to go outside the Galleries we usually moderate and find you some eye-lust from areas of deviantART that are perhaps slightly more off our radar or out of our comfort zones.
As Pinup & Glamour CV, I spend a lot of my time in these galleries and the rest of the People and Portraits Photography World.
Today I'm going to be casting my art-hungry gaze further afield into the amazing galleries of Traditional, Literature and Digital!
Come and Celebrate Diversity with me!

Today's theme is Autumn
Autumn (or Fall to my friends across the pond ) is upon us and the air is a bit chillier, warm clothing comes out and the nights draw in.

October Pinup and Glamour DD'sDaily Deviations from last month -
Pinup & Glamour Photography Galleries
In case you missed any, here they all are in one delicious chunk.
Due to the nature of these Galleries, you are likely to see a bit of skin, tease and sensuality.
So if that aint' your thing, we won't hold it against you, but you might prefer some of the other features from the rest of the CR Team

Back from Cyprus!I'm back!!
I've been to Cyprus for two weeks with the Man-shape!
We watched the whole Syria issue playing out, as Cyprus is right next to it and home to a large RAF base - which was pretty scary / exciting. Saw a huge military plane fly over on our last day!
It's going to take me a few days to get sorted and update my Groups, sort out some Pinup & Glamour DD's and get the ball rolling with the %ArtHistoryProject so for now here are a few pics of me and Martin and our delicious hotel!
Our hotel from the Beach.
Martin and I being cool and casual.

Why many artists suck at marketingWell. I can at least say that the average artist's mentality towards marketing never ceases to amaze me.
Either the guys here are young and naive --that's what I hope it is, since still being pure hearted in a time like this is good-- or they are willingly unaware of what's happening around them.
It all started with a question that came to my mind.
Would people be willing to pay a few point in exchange for a feature on a busy page?
How I got to the idea?
Well, I'm doing contests and giveaways now and then. Things for the community, you'd say. To get some feedback, feature stuff, promoting unknown artists, and that kind of stuff. In order to host those contests and giveaways I often need DeviantArt points. Now, I do get a lot of them by sheer donation. But that always seemed a bit empty to me. So I thought up some kind of idea. To give beginning artists the chance to get featured, and make use of the traffic on my page, in order to get their work viewed by people all over the website. S

Giveaways NEED to STOP!Giveaways on deviantART need to stop! They're having a number of detrimental effects on the community at large. Within this article, I aim to discuss this problem, as well as provide alternatives for giveaways. I'll begin by outlining what a giveaway is, both in the real world and on deviantART; explain why giveaways are simply not for deviantART; illustrate my points with real-world examples; and then go into detail on what exactly the aforementioned detrimental effects are. Additionally, I will counteract a number of excuses people use for holding and entering giveaways; as well as offer alternatives to giveaways for both parties.
I know the article is quite long, but this is an issue which myself and a growing number of other community members feel to be important. But I promise, it doesn't actually take too long to read once you get going!
If you agree with my points in this article, or even simply find the debate interesting, I would appreciate

Dreams of realityA pair of eyes;
Open and stare through the lights,
Into the darkness of doom.
And yet they smile,
Yet they smile.
A drop of tear;
Seeps through the garden of death;
Falls to the mortal soil.
Dreams and desires will blend again,
To render the roses alive.
I am floating through a vision.
Like ripples, floating through the pond of life.
Can reality be so real?
Let me drown again,
Into the silence of familiar noise.
As I wander through the lanes of reason and passion.
The flame of hope burns bright,
Drenched in the colors of freedom.
So let my dreams unravel my soul,
As darkness fades away;
And let mortality draw me closer to destiny.
As these pair of eyes,
Open to stare through the lights again.
Is this reality?
Can reality be so real?
Time passes by, as the eyes keep staring;
Staring at the distant lights;
Staring beyond the distant skies.
What do they see?
What do they long?
What do they desire?
Then the skies will break down;
White lightning striking the dreamy clouds.
Moments will tur
