December Monthly Challenge: Winter

Tue Dec 9, 2014, 6:09 PM
Beginning this month Digitalists is launching it's official monthly challenges! Each month members will be asked to create a new art piece based on the theme chosen by Digitalists admin. The themed art work must be submitted by the deadline to the corresponding challenge folder via the group favourites. Once the deadline has approached the admins of Digitalists will announce the winner who will receive a 3 Month Premium or 636 :points: and feature all of the participants from the month!

I have created a countdown ticker and placed it on the group front-page so everyone will know exactly how much time is left to submit their art. Also, the folder for December's challenge has already been created for member's to submit their entries.

Hello, and welcome to another edition of Digitalists new interview series:

Behind the Screens: Digital Art Masters

Through these interviews, we will get an in-depth look into the minds
and careers of DeviantART's most influential digital artists.

Today's featured artist is RazielMB


Gene Von Edler is a 24 year old digital artist. He was born in Germany but also has Spanish blood on his mother's side. For this reason, He spends seasons in Spain and Germany. Gene has a very touching and inspirational story: "I'm  a graphic designer and nature photographer and I like to draw in charcoal. It was thanks to my mom that I found deviantart three years ago, but it was at age 13 years old when my dad bought me Photoshop. I spent many months in the hospital due to my leukemia.

My mood worsened much and I needed a distraction and as I liked to draw, I found in digital art, a window to expand my inner world and isolate myself from aggressive 
treatments and permanent health problems caused by cancer. The digital art became good therapy, but I didn't dare to share my creations until two years ago. I began creating works with main characters, but currently I have changed my style, preferring to create dreamscapes-wallpaper in any specialty, nature, space art etc."

When did you first discover your passion for art? 

I discovered my passion for art in my childhood and mainly with music.
At three years old I began studying piano and drawing.

Enchanted twilight by RazielMB

Was your family supportive of your decision to pursue art as a career?

Always. They are the ones who give me the most support. Their opinions and criticisms are most important to me. My brother helps me a lot as he is responsible for publishing my work when I can not do it myself. These days I feel bad because with my medical treatment, he also takes care of my copyright.

Symphony of colors ~ Daily Deviation by RazielMB

What is your favorite piece from your gallery and why?

 I have many works that are very important to me, but Chained Angel is full of deep meaning for me and I put all my emotions, fears and feelings into this work.

Chained Angel ~ Daily Inspiration by RazielMB

Where do you find the inspiration for your art?

Nature, my Muse and my own emotions and feelings. Im a dreamer and as my parents say, I am always in the clouds. 

Flying between meteorites by RazielMB

On a site as large as DeviantART, it can be very difficult for artists to reach a broad audience. What advice can you give to those who want to get their art noticed online?

Working long and hard, with perseverance and above all, never give up!

Stellar goddess by RazielMB

Name three influential artists on DeviantART whose works 
inspire you and tell us why you look up to them.

Well, I really do not seek inspiration from other artists but I love to admire works of other artists, artists usually in digital painting as sakimichan and Selenada
As photomanipulators, I like how Paul ( J-u-d-a-s ) works textures in his works.

Jack Frost by sakimichan  Princess Mononoke (Prints for sale) by sakimichan   Tree Light by sakimichan


Gold Leaf by Selenada  Ice Princess by Selenada  Commission by Selenada


The other side of you by J-u-d-a-s  Eternally Yours... by J-u-d-a-s  Infest by J-u-d-a-s
