All deviants can now write Critiques Be a giver!All deviants can now write Critiques by Heidi
Sometimes you come across a deviation that deserves special attention. It catches your eye in such a way that you're compelled to craft a response that goes above and beyond a normal comment. Or perhaps a fellow deviant is having a tough time with a particular aspect of their work, and you know just what they need to take their art to the next level. As a good Internet citizen and art enthusiast, you want to help them out, but a normal comment doesn't quite suit your purpose.
For these situations and more, we've given everyone the ability to write a Critique.
What is Critique?
DeviantART's Critique system is designed to help artists get in-depth, critical feedback and commentary on their work. Valued feedback through Critique promotes creative growth as an artist and draws special attention to work.

The Ever Evolving Icon
What is it about a fictional character first introduced to the public in Great Britain in 1887 that has kept him being reincarnated, with generationally-correct upgrades, over and over again in film and on television?

Art became my Life about two decades ago -via Sculpture, & Painting. Unsurprisingly, at college I became a (Traditional) Print-maker & Book-Artist. I also minored in Art-History as well as in Psychology, which I frequently draw on for my subject-matter. My love for nature and exploration led me to SCUBA diving 15 years ago and I became a Master SCUBA Diver within a few years. Naturally, for my Master of Fine Arts, at graduate school I pursued Motion Graphics, Animation, Video Art and Digital Media in general. |
I've also been writing both Prose and Poetry, often in conjunction with my visual art, both still and moving images with text, and occasionally Sound.
Throughout the years I received some awards & had several exhibitions, mostly around New York City, and others elsewhere in the United States and a few abroad.
Now I aim to keep creating Multidimensional, Multimedia Artworks; combine traditional & digital elements, collaborate with other artists; I wish to construct such work as Immersive Installation Environments.
Thematically, all my work is borne of and intended to convey some aspect of the Human Experience, in simultaneously Universal and Individually Subjective terms.
