In this installment, we’re featuring Mart Biemans, a young digital artist and illustrator from The Netherlands. Since joining in 2008, Mart has been featured in number of the Behance networks and was profiled in Adobe’s New Creatives campaign earlier in 2014. Below is an excerpt of a testimonial from the artist.
“My life has proven that it is almost impossible to predict your future, even though I’ve had dreams and expectations like every other kid growing up, things turned out completely different than expected. . .

It’s never been easier to give and get feedback. Take your work in progress from your desktop straight to Behance with the new WIP app for Macs. The WIP app is a hub for sharing and exploring the freshest work on Behance—work still in progress.
On the Work in Progress app for desktop you can:
- Upload snapshots of your latest work directly from your desktop to get feedback from others and showcase a preview of your newest work on your portfolio
- Give your feedback on Work in Progress from creatives in your network
- Broadcast your latest updates and request feedback in one click sharing via Facebook and Twitter
Work In Progress allows you to get instant feedback from the creative community by uploading a snapshot of your work in progress.
Work in Progress is a great opportunity to show work in its early stages, and get feedback on it that can guide the direction it will take.

Appreciations are a way to send genuine kudos to another creative professional on Behance. This is our community’s way of curating the network, so that the best projects gain the most exposure. Here’s a look at two of the most appreciated projects on Behance this month:
League of Legends may have 27 million players per day, but it hasn’t been redesigned since 2009.Martin Vlas took it upon himself and Behancers are going nuts for his new UI design, improving everything from login to character design.
Redesigns are apparently this month’s theme, as another super-fan has taken it upon himself to give a new look and feel to one of his favorites: Futurama. Check out FUTURAMA 3D part 1 by Russia based Alexey Zakharov.
Behance engineer, Joel Kemp, writes about how he used static analysis techniques via Esprima and Node.js to overcome these problems within Sublime Text 3. Check out the post: Navigating an AMD Codebase in Sublime Text.

What’s on your computer desktop? For most of us, it’s a vacation photo from years ago, a default background that came with the computer, or something you set a few months ago that you haven’t had a chance to change. We design our office spaces to maximize creativity and inspiration, but what about the place where we spend hours of our time, the computer?
That’s why we created the Behance Wallpaper app—an easy way to make your workspace more beautiful and discover new creative work at the same time. For this first time, see creative work from Behance in all its hi-res, full screen glory on your desktop.
Once you install the Wallpaper app, you can choose from one of 60 designs (with an option to sort by creative field) by some of Behance’s top creatives, then choose how often you want to change your background—hourly, daily, weekly, monthly. Whatever your setting, the desktop will automatically change so you have a new design as often as you like. The app will stay fresh, with new designs added each month on top of what’s there now.
Loving a particular wallpaper and want more? You can follow the creatives behind the designs directly from the app.
Download the Behance Wallpaper app in the App Store.
This post is part of a series where Behance developers talk about the various tools they use to get things done and make ideas happen.
1. Who are you, and what do you do at Behance?
I’m Mike (and that’s one of my twins, Grant, on my shoulders. Julian’s a bit shy!). I’m primarily a JS engineer, but I also dabble in PHP, Mustache, and SCSS. I guess you’d say I’m a full stack dev who just prefers writing JS. I have a strong passion for testing, deployment, and code quality. I maintain (and contribute to) Behance’s static analysis toolchain: SCSSLint, JSHint, JSCS, PHPCS, and am currently working on centralized logging using Sumologic.
