Skin a Scion Contest - One Month Left!

We have made some minor rules revisions so please take a look at the rules section and the official rules page!

The Cars

Scion emerged on the automotive scene as a division of Toyota in 2003 and immediately began grabbing attention as being something unique in the automotive world. They offered cars at extremely affordable prices but with a unique style to them and an unprecedented amount of customizable options direct form the factory. Over the last 4 years they have expanded on this and treat their vehicles like rolling works of art adding more and more ways for you to modify them without breaking your bank account.

April 2007 Visual Art Features
Now it's time for April Features, many new art to discover!
Don't forget that many artists need to be viewed, they deserve it!
Fave Fave Fave!
My main purpose in doing a monthly feature about (to my point of view) 'the best visual art' is to put in the same level as well wellknown artists and popular creations as unknown artists and under-exposed creations.
Artists need to be supported.
So don't be shy!
Visit their page, support them by faving, commenting, and when you see a deviation that you like also view their gallery entirely, like that you can decide if you will devwatch them or not.
Viewing only a deviation (what is great) is not enough ;-)
-> you can see This feature customized here :

And if you want to see your favorite visual artists or art selected to be in this feature for the next month, send me via note the

Mixed Media Artists: #4 fensterer
This series of interviews will shed some light on some of the Mixed Media artists dA has to offer. This issue features fensterer who uses Lightwave, Photoshop and Illustrator to create new worlds in his images.

1) Please tell us a little about yourself first.
My name is Phil Fensterer, a resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and currently I am a graphic artist for a sign company that produces signs, t-shirts, awards, band posters and other products. I also have a side business I'm trying to get off the ground I call Creative Schism ( where I offer digital fine art, logos, cd covers, posters and even basic websites. I've been a member of deviantArt since December 2005.
2) How did you start out with art? Which was the first (digital) medium you used and why this one?
I started out drawing mainly because my entire family is inv

First time in a while creating some photomanips. Thought I'd try out something different for me and start getting some techniques back and redevelop after some time away.

It's been a loooong time doing this type of art and so I am looking to shake the rust off. Just haven't had time and been doing more gig posters lately. Will be posting more art from time to time.

Get Back To Work!

  • Listening to: Deftones

I know I have been absent for most of the past few years. Been dealing with major blows in personal life which has sort of sapped the energy and creative juices out of me. Between illnesses (I am still dealing with), losing my mom and brother in law and dealt with another blow late last year which lead me to really put more focus on taking care of my family. I just could never seem to get back into that creative mode for long stretches at a time anymore.  I have been fortunate though to be able to do a few side jobs in gig posters or logos. The poster thing is a radical departure for me and I am still figuring out what my style and workflow for those will be. It is a fun thing to do, that's for sure. But I miss creating the imagery I like to create. I just haven't had the time.

But I am getting there. I have been following some of our more respected artists that I watch grow into fantastic artists and are all well on their way to great things! I am very proud of them and they have inspired me lately. I have got the itch again. I have been dabbling, though nothing solid to show. Just practice runs. I have some new ideas to get out there soon. I do have a new CD project that is both a commercial endeavour and personal project as it may be the thing to get me going again. ;)

My new work may be going back to my older style and I look forward to the challenges I lay down for myself. Holidays are approaching so new stuff will most likely be in January unless I hunker down and get something done before then. :)

See you all soon! :)
