Kalamu

Kalamu is known for his work with heroes. Kalamu first started painting when he was only 88 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the withered pressure of being a child prodigy adverbly got to him and he had a fused breakdown, resulting in him cutting off her own mouth! Kalamu found extreme inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in space for all the weaklings to see! Kalamu eventually got married to an android and they remain together amazingly in their dog house with their 9 children. Kalamu would like to thank Henrik Ibsen, Stephen Hawking and a snail for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part of the so-called artistic process is to get totally into - as in, completely absorbed- in your work when inspiration strikes, coincidentally this also happen to be the hardest part when you've been struck by the dreaded art block. Anatomy, perspective, colour theory.... all those things can be very hard indeed, but they can also be learned with a good chunk of good ol' hard work; I've yet to learn how to get out of a dry spell as forcing it away rarely works

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Hard to pick one as I usually end up loathing what I draw within a week or two, but I'm still kind of happy with how this: 'For the Birds' turned out

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
To be honest I'm not much on dA these days as other communities and their attitudes appeal more to me, but way back when I joined I really liked sharing art because I got comments, feed-back, critique and attention from fellow artists and art-lovers. It helped me grow a lot more confident in my art and also shaped what and how I draw today - whether the latter is something good or bad I do not know

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh man, no-one beats that one guy who commented with a "oh murr, sexyyy" on a picture with one of my gryphon characters in it. I replied with a slightly confused "uh, what?" and he proceeds to explain how lovely it would be to get a BJ from the gryphon. A gryphon, which is a creature half bird and half feline, and with a very sharp beak. Uh. Yeah. Long live the weirdos, you're truly entertaining (and horrifying, but I can live with that). Keep on truckin'!

Y3an

Jean Grimbert is known for her work with human beings. Jean first started painting when he was only 16 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the smooth pressure of being a child prodigy epitomized him and he had a devilish breakdown, resulting in him cutting off her own hand! Jean found weird inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bathroom for all the computers to see! Jean eventually got married to a cigarette and they remain together soberly in their house with their 13 children. Jean would like to thank Spartacus, Jimi Hendrix and the cats for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part, for me, is to make a visual idea of the work I want to draw. The hardest is to apply that to the reality ^^.. And maybe the first pencil work, mostly on faces, takes more effort for me.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite work, for the moment is Smooth Poisonning ((SEE BELOW)). I can't really say why. It has yet many problems, but it's the first woman's drawing that I have really worked, it takes me many efforts.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Because a lot of good artists are here, and it makes me want to improve myself.

4) What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
For this question I really don't no!

Kitton

Kat Wilson is known for her work with flying monkeys. Kat first started painting when she was only 1201 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the sparkling pressure of being a child prodigy quickly got to her and she had a black breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own belly button! Kat found pretty inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bathroom for all the peepers to see! Kat eventually got married to a bobble-head and they remain together beautifully in their gazebo with their 18 children. Kat would like to thank Annie Oakley, Dave Grohl and the emus for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part is maintaining motivation and inspiration. The easiest is the process after the initial sketch, which for me often includes: ink, either mixed media or cg, and addition of texture. Initial concept and composition is always the bottleneck of my artistic process!

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I could never choose a favourite piece because my work has become a hobby for me. It's become focused on conveying character and developing personality.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I am an engineer and this is my last remaining vestige of life as an "artist", haha! I have invest a lot of time into this community over the years so it would be a shame to quit now!

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
"Did you draw that?" I find this question especially amusing when I am in the process of drawing the picture when they ask this!

StillLifeBattle

Once upon a battleship in a far away land called Thong, there lived a fancy bed named Jess. Her dalmatian was so spotted that all the noun of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Jess green, but also she was also very gifted. Jess could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was spaceship and that her gifts were really shiny. One day a heavy sardine became so sparklingly sleak of Jess that they decided to curse them with a spell of tonsillities, which would cause Jess great horribleness. The only way for Jess to break the spell was to ski on one foot, while juggling computers, and drinking a potion containing daisies, tyrannosaurus rex and a foot. And all would be silly unless it was sealed with a cake from her one true love, Harvey Dent. Jess made a thick recovery and married Harvey and they had 12.34 children and lived secretly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Both the easiest and and hardest parts of the artistic process, for me, is opening the blank canvas in PS. Its a simple enough first step to creating, but I always feel a lot of pressure when I open it up, concerning what I want to draw and what I want it to mean, if anything at all! It gets better after the first "brush" stroke.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite is Jolly Roger, sure the anatomy is off and he skull is shaped like an upside-down pear, but the colours are bright and the mood is playful. It was my favorite to create by far!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I've always loved getting reactions out of people so its fun to post bizarre stuff to see what people will say.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I don't really remember any strange comments, however I do always laugh when people question my artistic integrity on a piece - ie, saying "that looks like a filter". That one always gets me the most because people will say that about pieces that so obviously aren't made with a filter, you have to wonder what image they are seeing on their screen.

Sleepy-Hillhurst

Once upon a box in a far away land called Hammer, there lived a blue cat named Emily Nguyen. Her man was so skinny that all the iPods of the land were very jealous. Not only was Emily lovely, but also she was also very gifted. Emily could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was a monster and that her gifts were really crazy. One day a loud ghost became so cheerfully large of Emily that they decided to curse them with a spell of tuberculosis, which would cause Emily great paleness. The only way for Emily to break the spell was to run on one foot, while juggling jars, and drinking a potion containing apples, rabbits and heads. And all would be in niceness unless it was sealed with a Count Fangula from her one true love, Britney Spears. Emily made a bright recovery and married Britney and they had 42 children and lived extremely ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Hmmmm, I think the easiest of the artistic process is to let your mind flow and just draw whatever you can, even if it looks sloppy. The hardest is to perfect the proportions of the image (composition, placement of objects, symmetry of body, etc.).

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Hmmmmm....I think this is my fave. I really like the colors I put into this...and it's funny too!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I simply just want to contribute my little fandom onto there...and find others who share that same fandom :)

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
"Will not request slash image I will not request slash image I will not request slash image I will not request slash image I will not request slash image I will not request slash image....."
Hahaha, I thought that comment was really really funny!

Laurart

Once upon a glass in a far away land called Phone, there lived a heavy monkey named Laurart. Her water was so loud that all the towers of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Laurart soft, but also she was also very gifted. Laurart could create art like no other person could. Some said that she was a spider and that her gifts were really bitter. One day a ridiculous machine became so happily powerful of Laurart that they decided to curse her with a spell of cancer, which would cause Laurart great smelliness. The only way for Laurart to break the spell was to jump on one foot, while juggling masks, and drinking a potion containing jasmine, cats and hands. And all would be shiny unless it was sealed with a duster from her one true love, Simon de Beauvoir. Laurart made a kind recovery and married Simon and they had 20 children and lived friendly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
To me the hardest part is starting a piece. I usually have many ideas, but I don't like to spend much time developing a concept. I'm always too anxious to start painting. If I were more organized and methodic I would define a concept clearly, then draw many sketches of what I want to do, pick one and stick to it after I start. But I skip those steps and that's not always the wise thing to do. But I have a lot of fun doing things my way though, there's a lot of space to improvise and that can be great too.

And the easiest is what follows, mixing the colours and applying them. Finally starting to paint. Not that the technical aspect is really easy, but it's what I enjoy the most and that makes it less difficult.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Hmm, I don't really have a favourite to be honest. There are good and bad things in each piece and sometimes I realy like one but then I change my mind and preffer another one...so yeah, there's not really one I choose above the others.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I joined dA because I was really curious about what people would say about my pictures. And that's basically what I still like about this place. Plus, sometimes people's opinions are really useful and allow me to see things from another point of view.
Not to mention the amount of incredible artists that you can learn from and interact with. And that's something truly priceless.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Um, I don't recall getting any comment out of the usual. Though someone once left a "that's depressing" comment on one of my pictures and I never really knew if that was good or bad! haha

RockstarVanity

Once upon a penis in a far away land called Camera, there lived a hot feedbag named Tanya Simpson. Her war was so swollen that all the couches of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Tanya hairy, but also she was also very gifted. Tanya could create art like no other person could. Some said that she was a phone jack and that her gifts were really expensive. One day a blue hair dye became so disturbingly small of Tanya that they decided to curse them with a spell of hayfever, which would cause Tanya great fluffiness. The only way for Tanya to break the spell was to climb on one foot, while juggling media center PCs, and drinking a potion containing cactuses, frogs and foreheads. And all would be bleached unless it was sealed with deodorant spray from her one true love, Chris Cornell. Tanya made an invisible recovery and married Chris and they had 6.23 children and lived heavily ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part is when inspiration kicks in and there's a lovely giddy enthusiasm about creating. The hardest part is finding that inspiration again when it takes a holiday.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favourite of my own pictures is this one cause it's a photo of my husband looking all calm and serene. It always makes me smile.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I've been on dA for over 4 years and am now physically addicted. If I don't get enough dA in a day, I start to twitch uncontrollably.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Even when I describe my methods and materials for horror photos in great detail in the deviation descriptions, there will ALWAYS be a few people who freak out cause they didn't read the description and assumed that the pictures showed actual injuries. It worries me a little that there are actually people out there who think someone would slice their face apart for real just to take a photo of it.

AdamHunterPeck

Adam Hunter Peck is known for his work with chairs. Adam first started painting when he was only 55 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the boring pressure of being a child prodigy dejectedly got to him and he had a clean breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own nose! Adam found mounted inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his outhouse for all the handles to see! Adam eventually got married to a tree and they remain together silently in their shed with their 2 children. Adam would like to thank Pope John Paul II, Darth Vader and the ferrets for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Well, the easiest part of the artistic process is probably getting inspired, because it happens all the time, automatically. Walking down the street and seeing a multicolored oil puddle, or listening to an emotive song, or browsing sites like Flickr, ConceptArt, or DA are all possible ways to strike up a new idea for a piece of art.

I think each artist has their own hardest part of making art. For me - and probably many others - the hardest part is getting out of my own comfort zone. This can mean experimenting with new media, new subjects, new colors, new compositions, anything different. I think it can be a trap to find a single style of working and never leave that style.

Conversely, a professional illustrator usually needs a unified style to represent them, because it defines what kind of work they'll get, and whether publishers can comfortably predict how they'll deliver the final product. But this stagnation for the sake of reliable income is contradictory to the artist's personal evolution, so a professional illustrator who's also a dedicated artist will continue to take risks and explore new art processes on the side.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece is probably "His Collection Was Complete" ((SEE BELOW)), which depicts an old man sitting in a room of taxidermied legendary creatures. While the style is fairly simplistic, the reason I like it is because it really tells a lengthy story. You can surmise a certain vanity and pride in the man's character, as shown by the oversized portrait of himself; there's also the portrayal of greed, in that he cares more about collecting these rare specimens to heighten his own ego that letting the creatures live and allowing the world's collective imagination to remain intact. Further, you can imagine the adventures of how he came to capture each of these species, and also what else is in the room that we're not seeing, such as the labeled yet unseen "Leviathan". Overall, the piece was a lot of fun to imagine and compose as a form of storytelling rather than just attempting to make something that's simply pretty.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantArt is an active community of artists from different fields, backgrounds, and experience levels, and that's what makes it so rich. There's a lot of positive feedback, and there's a good amount of thoughtful critique too. These are both incredibly important for all artists, and it's easier to receive them in an online space like DA than from your local peers. It's one good example of how the internet can connect people in a meaningful way, which helps motivate, teach, and inspire.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
The weirdest comment I've received (at least on DA) wasn't about a piece of art, but was about a photo I posted of myself. Someone said I was "being more fat" than I had been in past photos, which I guess may have been true by a few pounds, but I'm still a relatively thin guy! Oh well!

WilderWein77

Once upon a melon in a far away land called Panties, there lived a confused bible named Irene. Her whip was so eager that all the cactuses of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Irene hysterical, but also she was also very gifted. Irene could create art like no other person could. Some said that she was a spatula and that her gifts were really gigantic. One day a wobbly face became so feverishly sparkly of Irene that they decided to curse them with a spell of foot fungus, which would cause Irene great miniatures. The only way for Irene to break the spell was to fart on one foot, while juggling gas masks, and drinking a potion containing meat eating plants, baboons and butts. And all would be bouncy unless it was sealed with a toilet brush from her one true love, Paris Hilton. Irene made a wrinkly recovery and married Paris Hilton and they had 341 children and lived accidentally ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part of the artistic process is the visual concept. I have so many ideas sketched out and clear in my mind, but too little time to execute them. Which leads me to the hardest part; transferring these ideas onto my 'canvas'. I spend a lot of time finding the right stock photos for what I have in mind. If I do the photoshoot myself, I do put a great deal of effort both in preparations, shoot and selection process.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favourite piece varies from time to time. Right now 'Proavus' is my favourite because the 'model' is my father and also I spent a massive amount of time completing all the details.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
On deviantArt I am able to talk with like-minded souls, share my art, and enjoy other artists' work. It is very inspiring.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
A lot of people mistake me for a man for some reason. That's always funny. :D

Dan-arbro

Once upon a Chuck Norris in a far away land called Adam West, there lived a cartoony 83 named Daniel Pike. His monkey was so hogwartsness that all the light flashes of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Daniel ingenious, but also he was also very gifted. Daniel could draw like no other person could. Some said that he was broccoli and that his gifts were really a complicated. One day a dirty tall ship became so sweetly majestic of Daniel that they decided to curse them with a spell of pancreatitis, which would cause Daniel great joy. The only way for Daniel to break the spell was to row on one foot, while juggling purple pandas, and drinking a potion containing tomatoes, musical walrus and ear lobes. And all would be in silliness unless it was sealed with a pancake from his one true love, Chuck Norris. Daniel made a pillaging recovery and married Chuck Norris and they had like a million children and lived pathetically ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part of the process for me, is that once I get started on something, I have the momentum to finish it, and see through with it to the end. That’s a rare quality for me, because I tend to be the laziest person I know. It’s very easy to get an idea, creatively tackle it, and see it to fruition. The hardest part, is dealing with lack of recognition, and dealing with self-criticism. I feel like my art is rotten (as most artists do). It’s hard feeling like you aren’t good enough. However, I’ve realized it doesn’t take popularity, or immense recognition to be good. In fact, visual art is a broad spectrum of talents I have, and by no means am I headed in a career in drawing. It’s a useful tool for me to better visualize my creative goals.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I don’t really have a favorite to be honest. The pieces I do favour are the ones I put a lot of creative time and energy into. Usually the latest piece I create I seem to admire for a small time, until I am unsatisfied and MUST create another.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
In most parts of my life I am a complete extrovert. I act, sing, and usually am the loud goofball of the bunch willing to do anything for a laugh. However, when it comes to art, I quietly draw and recluse myself from the public. Usually my close friends and family are the only ones to see me do stuff. However, DeviantArt has allowed me to show off my skills to the entire world, without having to worry about a biased opinion from friends. The DA community will give honest opinions, and generally everyone is objective and amazing.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I’ve never really had an overwhelmingly weird amount of comments or statements on my DA account. In fact, I rarely get any comments at all. It can get very discouraging at times, but I don’t let it stop me. Some of the funnier times are when people use to describe my work as plan as it is. It’s very “cartoony” and has great “hogwartness”. I love hearing and getting feedback from people, but it rarely happens I’m afraid

NickSirotich

Nick Sirotich is known for her work with chips. Nick first started painting when he was only 55 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the green pressure of being a child prodigy quietly got to him and he had a long breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own baby toe! Nick found wet inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his closet for all the sillies to see! Nick eventually got married to a chair and they remain together crookedly in their popemobile with their zero children. Nick would like to thank Stalin, Madonna and the hamsters for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part of the artistic process for me is probably the amount of time i have to do work, versus the amount of work I'd like to do. I think I am pretty prolific, I get on average 6-10 pieces done a week but there still isn't enough hours in the day. I often become bored with a piece after a while so I consistently have the urge to do something else. I attribute some of my more ridiculous, hectic, what i refer to as "pile pieces" to a scattered mind and a busy schedule.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I couldn't pick just one piece to call a favorite, I find all my pieces entertaining until they're finished, and then I kinda lose interest and focus on the next one

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I enjoy deviant art because I get feedback from people who don't know me personally and can critique me based solely on portfolio, I like that I can put a piece up and discuss it with other artists, and find new artists that I am inspired by as well.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
An artist friend of mine once told be that when i draw it's like jazz music, I really appreciated that.

Illusionality

Debra is known for her work with knives. Debra first started painting when she was only 80 years old, making she a child prodigy. However, the hollow pressure of being a child prodigy strangely got to her and she had a pink breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own eye! Debra found promiscuous inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bedroom for all the spoons to see! Debra eventually got married to a fork and they remain together quickly in their cabin with their 44 children. Debra would like to thank Napoleon, Michael Jackson and bunnies for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part is of course coming up with an idea. Now it gets tough when you want to get that idea on paper or in Photoshop. Its very annoying when that happens. And when it does happen (read: it always happens >__> ) I always bail on it, and then after a while I get the hang of it! So it's just time and also determination; being sleepy doesnt work xD But neither does being hyper. LOL

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece would be..."Stop and Stare", which is my most favorited deviation. I always wanted to try out Manga/Anime, and for a (real) first time I think I did well. But still incorporated a bit of my own style in it. I notice people saying things like: "I can tell it's your style", and not like iI totally ripped it of or something. It's also my most favourite work because I didn't intend it to be like, a GREAT piece. More like a practice-drawing. It's always nice to see people like stuff you never thought would be "attractive" to people. But actually, every piece in my gallery is my favourite. I mean: I MADE IT!!!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Well, it's all community! A community where everyone can contact everyone, a (sometimes) loving environment, a way to improve your skills. Also all the resources are very helpful! I could not think things would be any easier without the great range of resources!!

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh, uhm well let me search for one xD
"Its, nice, but whats with this emo stuff?!" It made me laugh, cause it sounded so dry People always seem to be hostile towards emo stuff, and I dont get it!! Hahahaha xD

Lii-chan

Once upon a nun in a far away land called Squeegee, there lived a bratty tree stump named Erin McManness. Her door handle was so toadish that all the keys of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Erin stunning, but also she was also very gifted. Erin could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was fishy and that her gifts were really purple. One day a lacy wart became so gracefully wonky of Erin that they decided to curse them with a spell of malaria, which would cause Erin great spotty. The only way for Erin to break the spell was to skip on one foot, while juggling a pot of gold, and drinking a potion containing daisies, elephants and elbows. And all would be in stumpy unless it was sealed with a doctor from her one true love, Obama. Erin made a gross recovery and married Obama and they had 8 children and lived ridiculously ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
For me, the easiest part of the artistic process is getting inspired. I am inspired by a lot, and most of the time when I'm not doing art, 20 different ideas are floating around in between my eyes. The hardest part comes not only when I have to actually pick and execute an idea, but I have so many elements I want to incorporate, the difficulty is finding the right elements that fit together without making any of them feel left out :P

Which is your favourite piece and why?
It's hard for me to pick my favourite piece. I like different things in all of my work; equally, there are things I would still improve in each work as well. I love making art because each piece is a learning experience; but if I had to pick a favourite, it would be because it was a piece I worked on intensely when I studied in Italy. I think this was the piece where I felt my skills went to the next level, and it's a very special, personal piece to me.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I like devART because one of my greatest joys is creating beauty and sharing it with others. I delight in making art because I can be in the present, with myself and my most inner feelings and inspirations, but also because I want to create something of beauty to inspire others. On the flip side, devART is a great community where everyone can share what they've worked on at all different kinds of skill levels. When I first began, I really valued the crits I got on here... especially because when I started I had never had an art class in my life.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I think the weirdest comment I ever got was actually recently. The viewer said "This is beyond what I'm used to [from you]"; while they clarified for me that it wasn't a bad thing, I keep wondering what exactly it meant, since someone else said it too on another forum, lol.

Steeringfornorth

Cate is known for her work with typewriters. Cate first started painting when she was only 7 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the fascinating pressure of being a child prodigy rapidly got to her and she had a dramatic breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own finger! Cate found delightful inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her kitchen for all the opera singers to see! Cate eventually got married to a zebra and they remain together boldly in their shed with their 53 children. Cate would like to thank Virgina Woolf, Harpo Marx and the llamas for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I think for me, the easiest part is finding the inspiration for drawings - there's *so* many stories I want to illustrate, and characters I'd like to get down on paper - not to mention films, novels and fellow artists who act as a constant stream of glorious inspiration. The hardest part is not having as much time as I'd like to be able to draw them all :-)

Which is your favourite piece and why?
That's a really tough one. And it changes all the time! At the moment I'd have to say 'Jake and the Thuringian Queen' - partly as I'm a big Heath Ledger and Terry Gilliam fan - so it was a delight to work on - and partly as this particular piece really pushed me, technically. I'd already worked a little with silhouettes, but this time I knew I wanted to draw something much more detailed and intricate, and explore ways of representing cobwebs and hair and to (hopefully) convey some of the sense of dust and decay and age that Gilliam captured so beautifully in the film. It really made me re-think the way silhouettes and lines could be used, and opened up a new way of working for me.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I think the sheer range of incredibly varied and hugely talented artists who share their work on D.A, the sense of mutual support and appreciation and respect the artists have for each other's work. And the wonderful people you come into contact with - shortly after I first joined, i got chatting to a fellow artist about photography - and then onto discussing nature and spirituality - she's now become one of my dearest friends. Its a lovely community.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I'm afraid I haven't actually had anything weird or amusing! All the comments I've received have been warm and respectful and very kind.
Although I did have a chat recently with a DA friend (via comments on an Easter-related photo) about the merits of egg-rolling. Hard boil 'em first. Very important

IBinsanity

Once upon a dog in a far away land called breast, there lived a pokey yard named Chauncy. His card was so drunk that all the joints of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Chauncy old, but also he was also very gifted. Chauncy could draw like no other person could. Some said that he was a pot and that his gifts were really loud. One day a milky dick cheese became so impossibly smelly of Chauncy that they decided to curse them with a spell of syphilis, which would cause Chauncy great luminosity. The only way for Chauncy to break the spell was to fuck on one foot, while juggling shoes, and drinking a potion containing roses, and skunk penis. And all would be in long unless it was sealed with a walk from his one true love, $chix0r. Chauncy made a fat recovery and married $chixor and they had 13 children and lived fornicationally ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I'd say the easiest part for me is finding inspiration - I see everything through the lens of a camera these days, and can't even go shopping without thinking "HOLY CRAP I NEED THAT PROP!" The hardest part, I think, is developing a personal style so that all of your pieces seem somewhat cohesive. I've struggled for years to find a style to call my own, and even now, while some of my pieces have elements that are clearly identifiable as mine, I'm always trying to perfect it and find a way to make my new works jive with the old.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My piece "Life" ((see below)) is the work that helped me refine my style in terms of macro and kigh-key still life, which has become somewhat of my calling card. It's also one of the few prints that I've sold to local friends, so it's probably the piece that is most highly associated with my style among my local friends.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Hands down, it's the people. deviantART is a place to learn and teach; to see and be seen; to voice opinions and to hear those of others. The mentality of the community is unlike any I've ever seen, because SO many people are dedicated to furthering the artistic agenda - it's beautiful, really.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
"i like how the focus is to the right, when the subject is about something so far left-wing ;)" - on 'Bohemiana'.

Cestmoi

HEY! So I don't normally do this, but this particular artist is my best friend since I was 4 years old, so I'm making an exception this one time! BECAUSE IT'S HER BIRTHDAY TODAY! Hoorah! She doesn't really upload a lot of art anymore to dA, but I would like to showcase her art this one time (even though she may kill me) and have people see what she can do! She is unaware that she has completed an art lib for herself, but she has done one! Check it out and enjoy!

Carrie Milks is known for her work with tables. Carrie first started drawing when she was only 893 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the purple pressure of being a child prodigy dejectedly got to her and she had a thick breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own toe! Carrie found open inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her balcony for all the CDs to see! Carrie eventually got married to a speaker and they remain together quickly in their barn with their 3 children. Carrie would like to thank Caesar, Obama and the ferrets for their constant support and inspiration.

Molinda

Molly McCausland is known for her work with bees! Molly first started drawing when she was only 3 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the giggly pressure of being a child prodigy stupidly got to her and she had a bruised breakdown, resulting in her cutting off his own breast! Molly found purple inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bedroom for all the cucumbers to see! Molly eventually got married to an occasional table and they remain together curvily in their pointed house with their 342 children. Molly would like to thank Hitler, Zac Efron, and the moose for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
It totally depends on my mood. Sometimes I find the concepts come to me, and it's all I can do to stop myself drawing, and sometimes I am creatively dry. The hardest part, for me, is almost always corrections. When you *know* something is horrifically out of proportion but don't want to spend hours fixing it, or even worse when you know something is wrong but can't figure out exactly what. That is incredibly frustrating.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
'I don't believe in Pigeons' without a doubt. I adore 1950s and 60s cartoons - the bright block colours and simple shapes - and had great time letting those inspire me. Process magenta is the most fantastic colour, it just sings.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The fact that it is so immediate and easy to access - there are so many people who actually talk to each other and support each other... I can honestly say I've made friends on DA I will never lose, friends who I see in the flesh as well as on the screen.

I originally went to DA for the prints. I stayed for the people.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I do strange art. I get strange comments on a regular basis. Usually about bacon.
