"Where to begin and where to end? Gosh, that's a hard one!" says Nirvy. "It's Digital art that changed my life."
When looking for eye-catching and intriguing images, I found this one labeled "Bikes." It seems like an ordinary photo of 3 bikes, but I knew it symbolized more than that. My first thought was a family affair. A family spending time with each other and wanting to be adventurous. But, before I made any assumptions, I decided to ask Renderosity member Prutzworks the true meaning behind this image.
So, I'm trying to discover new artists in the industry and I sent a call-out on Facebook to chat with some new faces. To my surprise, Joey AK answered and told me he's a member of Renderosity. So, please read and discover who (blacksedan01) is.
Chatting with Renderosity vendors such as Sander Osephius (2nd_World) makes my job fun! I love learning how they fell in love with art and what lend them to joining our site. This is a way I get to know the artist personally and understand how they think and feel about art. So, I bring you the back-story of how 2nd_World found Renderosity.
Ah, art. Who doesn't love having the ability to create a portrait, 3D model or painting at your leisure? Whether it's your full-time job or hobby, creating art takes passion and dedicate. I interviewed Valery Hoeben (Godin) about her passion for art.
When I saw the photo labeled "Window Light," it just spoke to me. So, I reached out to Renderosity member Jamason and asked him to tell me more about this particular image.
I have to say--out of all the holidays, Christmas is certainly my favorite. Honestly, it has nothing to with receiving presents; it's more so the feeling I get around this time. As soon as Christmas music starts playing on the radio, I'm the first to tune to the station!
So, when I saw the photo labeled "Across the street," it caught my eye because it was brightly-colored and absolutely beautiful! I decided to chat with Renderosity member photosynthesis to find out the background on this amazing photo!

I'm obsessed with love and romance and it's no surprise that I didn't feel connected to this particular one. DarkPhoria and JestePhotography met on Renderosity in 2000 and she's not sure "if it was a matter of an image comment or if it was in chat, but that's where it began."
I have to admit that when I got to the last paragraph, I teared up and I am not an emotional person, just a hopeless romantic. Consequently, my name is Hope too! Anywho....here is where their story begins.

I decided to ask the Renderosity community members what their Thanksgiving tradition or ritual is.
To Renderosity vendor Stuart Palmer (BlueTreeStudio), art is life. It's not just a "part of his life," it's his whole being. I love chatting with members who are very passionate about art because I love listening them describe why they fell in love and stayed in love. Just read through this wonderful interview I conducted with Stuart.
Renderosity vendor Rob Rushing (Shadownet) has a quirky and fun sense of humor even though according to him he's "by nature, more quiet and reserve and basically a loner." When I sent along questions I could tell he has a great personality through his words. I mean, I'm a writer and just reading how others answer questions, I can tell what type of person they are.

So, please congratulate member dmphoto for winning Grand Prize in the animation category.
I can tell you one thing about me: I never get sick of hearing love stories. I cannot get enough of listening to how people met their significant other or how the proposal happened. So, I asked Renderosity member belladzines3d (Sharyn Yee) how where/how she met her husband.
It was over a year ago that Corel first introduced their revolutionary, physics-inspired, particle brushes in Corel Painter 2015. And, somewhere along the way, the folks at Corel came up with an ingenious idea to introduce the power and creative look of Painter's particle brushes to users of other image editing applications. This idea became the recently released ParticleShop, a plugin for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, and Corel's own PaintShop Pro and PHOTO-PAINT. For this review, I am using ParticleShop via Photoshop CS6.

While browsing through the Photography section, I found an image titled "I chose you." I began marveling at the image and wondering about the symbolism, what inspired this photo, and what does this happy couple represent. Therefore, I decided to reach out to member Odie--who took this photo--and get some more insight.
