Dr-conz

Once upon a woodwind in a far away land called Bat, there lived a fuzzy pete named Nthinila Phumaphi. His bunker was so glimmering that all the pastors of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Nthinila crackling, but also he was also very gifted. Nthinila could draw like no other person could. Some said that he was Hendrix and that his gifts were really rich. One day a tired caesar became so expertly cumbersome of Nthinila that they decided to curse them with a spell of rabies, which would cause Nthinila great seduction. The only way for Nthinila to break the spell was to backhand on one foot, while juggling Clancy, and drinking a potion containing pumpkin, fruit bats and earlobes. And all would be fearsome unless it was sealed with pants from his one true love, Gandhi. Nthinila made a harsh recovery and married Gandhi and they had 68 children and lived disparately ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Uuuhhh, coming up with the idea, cause I draw a lot my inspiration from music. Loads and lots of music.:D

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I don't really have a favourite, but i do have many that I look at and I'm like, urgh, I need to draw that better.:)

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The people mostly, I'm a deviantart addict, I'm always on there looking other awesome artists work. I like to see their process and how they think I guess. Sweet stuff

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
They just keep coming 'ey. Someone always manages to say something just out there, and I'm like huh... that was weird. I can't remember any though, off the top of my head.

Jinju

Once upon an airplane in a far away land called Sandwich, there lived a spicy jellyfish named Jennifer Mundy. Her librarian was so lazy that all the playgrounds of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Jennifer gigantic, but also she was also very gifted. Jennifer could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was a volcano and that her gifts were really jittery. One day a fancy sketchbook became so thoroughly delicious that they decided to curse them with a spell of swine flu, which would cause Jennifer great juiciness. The only way for Jennifer to break the spell was to breathe on one foot, while juggling plastic, and drinking a potion containing orchids, cat and hands. And all would be lumpy unless it was sealed with a toothbrush from her one true love, Abe Lincoln. Jennifer made an exciting recovery and married Abe and they had 13 children and lived swiftly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest parts are always in the beginning-- figuring out what to draw and how to draw it in particular. Once I have a clear sketch, everything is downhill from there.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Probably either "Float" or "Bully"-- I feel like they were the easiest to make because I had a clear idea of exactly what I wanted to do. Bully is a funny piece to me because I was listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks while drawing it, and after I was done, I realized I had drawn Harry Potter beating up a fat kid.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I started posting art at dA when I was 14, back then it was a much smaller community and the internet itself was different.. I think it really had to do with wanting to receive recognition for my work, but over the years dA has become an entirely different entity-- it's full of such a huge variety of work and styles that it's a constant source of inspiration. I have somewhere around 500 amazingly talented artists on my watch list (of all different styles) and it's really amazing to be able to be updated on a regular basis with all of their new work. It's also great to hear what strangers think sometimes, because they're totally unbiased.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Nothing in particular comes to mind-- the comments I receive tend to be pretty spot on and drama-free, fortunately! I have some friends that have to deal with real trolls on dA but I've never really had that problem.. Usually people just tell me what they like and don't like about the piece :)

Sleyf

Rasha Al-Najjar is known for her work with sheep. Rasha first started drawing when she was only 2 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the squashy pressure of being a child prodigy joyously got to her and she had a fluffy breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own hand! Rasha found round inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her kitchen for all the pencils to see! Rasha eventually got married to an Egg and they remain together accidentally in their shed with their 20 children. Rasha would like to thank Napoleon, Elton John and her donkey for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest is getting what's in your head down on paper exactly. Because when you visualise something in your head, it always looks so amazing and (like the work of some other fantastic artist who's skill is so much better than mine), then when it's finally drawn, it looks nothing as dramatic as you imagined, and you suddenly forget the original image you had! The easiest is probably...hmmm...adding the finishing touches, however that's also the easiest part to mess up and overdo :D

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Um...my favourite piece is probably...well I have a lot but my favourite is probably "Bth Time"Bath time" hahah I don't know why, I think it's because it was the first time I'd sort of really "Gotten good at" using photoshop to colour, and because of the reflection of the tub on the ground. I mean sure there's a lot wrong with it but I still like it! [link]

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Well I like the way that people comment and you sort of gather your own group of friends that's always expanding. It's also great for shy people who are afraid to show their art in real life, by showing it online, they can sort of remain faceless...but...there...I don't know how relevant that is but I think it's great.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh god I have no idea there have been a bunch of funny ones that still make me laugh, but none that I can remember off the top of my head really.

Bara-chan

Once upon a banana in a far away land called Tree, there lived a red Helen Keller named Rose Besch. Her greenery was so sleepy that all the platypuses of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Rose stellar, but also she was also very gifted. Rose could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was Antarctica and that her gifts were really promising. One day an honest door became so fabulously rockin’ that they decided to curse them with a spell of chlamydia, which would cause Rose great passion. The only way for Rose to break the spell was to slam on one foot, while juggling boomboxes, and drinking a potion containing roses, boars and a neck. And all would be pure unless it was sealed with a hammer from her one true love, Queen Elizabeth I. Rose made a succulent recovery and married Elizabeth and they had three children and lived eagerly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
For me, coloring is probably the easiest, and the most fun.
I dislike inking the most, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's the hardest part; sketching probably is, since you have to ensure a good foundation for the piece. No amount of gloss can truly save a poor sketch, and a ridiculous amount of my work never makes it to the inking or coloring phases because of this.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
It's tough to choose one, since there are different things I like (and dislike) about different pieces!
Possibly my "Dulcet""Dulcet" piece.
I think it's a pretty good representation of the work I typically do -- bright colors, bold inking, feminine but not completely so, and kind of fashionable and trendy -- and Shifuu has always been a special character to me.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The incredible diversity of art is what I like most about dA and its community. Seeing great art from completely different genres can be extremely inspiring. It's also wonderful to hear feedback from a wide range of people -- non-artists, beginning artists, seasoned professionals, photographers, graphic artists, abstract and fantasy and realistic -- all these different perspectives can be an eye-opener.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh geez. Um...
I think one guy asked me to draw a really busty version of "the girl" from my self-portraits??? Haven't quite gotten around to that request yet...

Chira-chira

Once upon a peanut butter in a far away land called Batmobile, there lived a strong pepper sprayer named Jayd Aït-Kaci. Her light bulb was so dainty that all the kites of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Jayd robust, but also she was also very gifted. Jayd could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was a princess and that her gifts were really hyper. One day a tedious box became so quickly fetching that they decided to curse her with a spell of pneumonia, which would cause Jayd great danger. The only way for Jayd to break the spell was to genuflect on one foot, while juggling Big Ben, and drinking a potion containing tomatoes, an owl and a finger. And all would be opaque unless it was sealed with a battery from her one true love, Nell Gwynn. Jayd made a comedic recovery and married Nell and they had seven children and lived slovely ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Sketching is the easiest thing in the world! Hardest is keeping my attention on a single picture to finish something.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I don't have a favorite piece! There's an expiration date on every picture I am proud of, and unfortunately it's usually less than a week before I lose interest in it.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
High traffic site and convenient portfolio for people to access!

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
A pretty recent one, where I was asked why everyone looked the same and had the same noses... after my eyebrows shot up I just started laughing.

2Mino

Once upon a dose in a far away land called Film, there lived an amazing convention named Ola Gilen. His lecture was so hard that all the diagnoses of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Ola quick, but also he was also very gifted. Ola could draw like no other person could. Some said that he was a fox and that his gifts were really nice. One day a tall building became so amazingly short of Ola that they decided to curse them with a spell of lupus, which would cause Ola great inhaling. The only way for Ola to break the spell was to bring things on one foot, while juggling locks, and drinking a potion containing roses, dragons and arms. And all would be soft unless it was sealed with a plate from his one true love, Jesus. Ola made an honest recovery and married Jesus and they had threefiddy children and lived homely ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I always find the whole process very challenging, if not hard.. Being creative isn't easy, and executing what you want to create, often seem impossible. For me, spending enough time on what I do, is probably the easiest part. The hardest part must be always keeping fresh, and renewing my styles.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Hard question.. probably obscurite, because it's the piece I feel like I learned most from making.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Probably all the amazing people here, or rather the art. I am more bound to communities like Evokeone, and Intrinsic Nature, because you get a more close relationship with the other artists, witch helps you improve like crazy.DA has some people who bother giving out good critique, but too me it's mostly a way to show of my art, as well as view amazing art.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Hmm, a political comment on the happenings in Gaza? (it had nothing to do with any kind of war in any way at all.)

Crackhobbit

Once upon a bear in a far away land called Potato, there lived a fugly alien named Brittany Heydon. Her toenail was so batty that all the honeys of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Brittany busy, but also she was also very gifted. Brittany could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was a clown and that her gifts were really stinky. One day a noisy monkey became so jealous of Brittany that they decided to curse them with a spell of tuberculosis, which would cause Brittany great moistening. The only way for Brittany to break the spell was to catch on one foot, while juggling sharks, and drinking a potion containing poppies, bats and earlobes. And all would be evil unless it was sealed with a marker from her one true love, Abraham Lincoln. Brittany made an awesome recovery and married Abraham and they had 257 children and lived literally ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part it the general sketching. I can usually finish up a sketch in under 15 minutes! The inking, on the other hand, is probably the hardest part because I'm so particular about it. It often becomes the most time consuming part of the image.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
As of now it is "Made For TV Movie". It was my first speed paint and I loved the way it turned out! It portrayed the exact emotions I was going for.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I think it's a great way to connect with other artists and other people who share the same creative interests as you do. I've met many great long time friends through Deviantart!

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
There are quite a few funny comments on my "William's Child" piece, about the certain "complications" one would have with having two chainsaws for hands. I guess I don't really think of the technical stuff when drawing horror! Ha ha!

Cedarseed

Once upon a pen in a far away land called Line, there lived a wobbly ink named Joumana. Her obsession was so alert that all the swords of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Joumana challenging, but she was also very gifted. Joumana could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was just a spear and that her gifts were really wicked. One day an exciting creative became so effortlessly hopeful that they decided to curse Joumana with a spell of mononucleosis, which would cause Joumana great non-fun. The only way for Joumana to break the spell was to step on one foot, while juggling stance, and drinking a potion containing anemones, tigers and a hand. And all would be open unless it was sealed with tea from her one true loveJet Li. Joumana made a cozy recovery and married Jet Li, they had 8 children and lived heartfully ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I believe the inspiration is both the easiest and the hardest part. When it's flowing, it's completely effortless, you're just downloading ideas, so to speak. When that channel's not open, it's really really hard to find an idea or figure out how to make something work.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Almost impossible to choose given the variety of my work, but since I've had my icon set 'Mini Fu Reloaded' up as featured piece for over a year, there's a case for it.
I can't get tired of these lil guys (I'm obsessed with Wushu and Taijiquan, which I've been practicing for 8 years now) and I believe I've really hit on something with this style, as it's very tight and appealing, and its application opened infinite possibilities for me – other than expanding this set, I want to apply it to cultural themes, for instance. There's also the fact they've been hugely popular since their first and much awkward incarnation back in 2001. Clearly it was a moment of particularly fine inspiration!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The user interaction is excellent, better than on any other site I know. It doesn't only make it easy for people to communicate with you when you post something, but also among each other like in real life – much richer than sites where communication is almost entirely between poster and viewer. Also, it being so huge and diverse means there are many small comunities in one and you can easily navigate from one to the other and make them cross-pollinate. My creative interests are very varied and it's really awesome to be able to browse and post everything in the same place.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I've received many really odd comments, but the one that comes to mind was not on dA but in real life: as I rode an elevator carrying some sketches, a lady who was in there with me took a look at them and asked, "Are you a kindergarten teacher?" O_o

JHMiller86

James Miller is known for his work with zombies! James first started drawing when he was only 4 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the loud pressure of being a child prodigy genuinely got to him and he had an amazing breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own torso! James found blinding inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bedroom for all the giraffes to see! James eventually got married to Kelsey and they remain together unfortunately in their shed with their 5 children. James would like to thank King George III, Donkey Kong and Cy Twombly for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part is coming up with an idea and the easiest part is everything else.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Generally I love everything I draw for about a day after it's done and then start to criticize it all, so my favourite is always my most recently finished.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I like being displayed on the same website as some genuinely excellent artists that I wouldn't see anywhere else, I also like that the community is always constructive in criticism and most people want to help others along.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I haven't received enough comments yet to have many odd ones.

Juchise

Once upon a hair in a far away land called Turtle, there lived a ridiculous bike named Justyna. Her carrot was so happy that all the tears of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Justyna inconvenient, but she was also very gifted. Justyna could take photos like no other person could. Some said that she was just an elephant and that her gifts were really big. One day a crazy bug became so oddly weird that they decided to curse Justyna with a spell of the chills, which would cause Justyna great gorgeousness. The only way for Justyna to break the spell was to run on one foot, while juggling chickens, and drinking a potion containing sunflowers, wolves and a hand. And all would be famous unless it was sealed with a drawer from her one true love, Kurt Cobain. Justyna made a fair recovery and married Kurt Cobain, they had 6,665 children and lived evilly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
In photography easiest for me is post-processing, hardest doing shots of moving objects or when the light is changing.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My piece? That would be 'Crying During the Death'. Maybe it's not my most popular piece on dA, but I really like the lighting of it and the fact, that I really haven't done too much in photoshop - photo is has good quality and colours itself. And I really adore the climate of it.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
People, art, llamas... Everything. I'm on dA only 1.5 year, but in this time I've started doing some of the best shots and bought my first DSLR - everything because of dA! I just love the support, the chance to see what the REAL ART is and how peoples' concepts look like.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
"These kinds of shots always remind me of a page in those I-Spy books" and "the glitters are grouping together like a beehive" both about the same photo and both with no sense for me (;

Aiko273

Once upon a fox in a far away land called Dungarees, there lived a dry orange named Aiko. Her Bruce Campbell was so cold that all the Bootsy Collins' of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Aiko squishy, but she was also very gifted. Aiko could take photos like no other person could. Some said that she was just a chocolate bar and that her gifts were really nice. One day a blonde fish became so beautifully sleepy that they decided to curse Aiko with a spell of the cancer, which would cause Aiko great tallness. The only way for Aiko to break the spell was to jump on one foot, while juggling boxes, and drinking a potion containing venus fly catchers, cat and fingers. And all would be colourful unless it was sealed with a telephone from her one true love, Mother Teresa. Aiko made a blank recovery and married Mother Teresa, they had 7 children and lived extremely ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest is most definitely the process of 'having' an idea, while the hardest is actually getting that idea to work!

Which is your favourite piece and why?
It is hard for me to choose, because I'm very critical of my own work. I think I would have to say 'Sohuiii', even though it is fairly old. I think I lucked out in the lighting department for that one, as it is one of the few images where I had to rely on natural light. Sophie is a stunning model and I feel lucky to have worked with her on some of her first shoots.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The layouts and submission process, along with the fact that it encourages you to critique a piece.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
An insult (I assume), something along the lines of "Are you a talking parrot?" and then "Feeding of parrots in the zoo is not allowed, seriously."

Danimation2001

Once upon a shit in a far away land called Money, there lived a pale house named Dan. His dog was so strong that all the cats of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Dan super, but he was also very gifted. Dan could take draw like no other person could. Some said that he was just food and that his gifts were really sharp. One day a dull chair became so exquisitely shitty that they decided to curse Dan with a spell of the bubonic plague, which would cause Dan great fierceness. The only way for Dan to break the spell was to jump on one foot, while juggling dirt, and drinking a potion containing banana, horse and dicks. And all would be awesome unless it was sealed with a desk from his one true love, Frank Frazetta. Dan made a long recovery and married Frank Frazetta, they had 9000 children and lived painfully ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part of what I do is coloring shapes. The hardest part would be creating them. Coloring is easy because half of the work is already done, but now I'm getting back into the swing of creating lines and colors and it's wicked hard to create something from scratch. But with time and practice anything can get easier.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
To be honest I don't really have a favorite piece yet. Even though everyone seems to like the 'Haku' piece, it's actually not really my favorite. I guess I'm just not really happy with my work yet.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I would say the feedback from other artists and being able to comment on what other artists themselves are posting.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Well I don't know about the weirdest but I did get two people once who ranted back and forth over a "vs" piece, about who would win in a fight between superman and goku. They just couldn't come to an agreement.

GodessofArt

Once upon a flower in a far away land called Boy, there lived a ruined forgiveness named Irina. Her shoe was so forgiven that all the cakes of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Irina stressed, but she was also very gifted. Irina could take photos like no other person could. Some said that she was a toe and that her gifts were really a funny. One day an incredible perfume became so incredibly destroyed that they decided to curse Irina with a spell of rabies, which would cause Irina great crazyness. The only way for Irina to break the spell was to run on one foot, while juggling naked people, and drinking a potion containing cactus, hyenas and necks. And all would be soft unless it was sealed with blood from her one true love, Johnny Depp. Irina made a sexy recovery and married Johnny Depp they had 69 children and lived dramatically ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Some think that the editing the camera or the position are the most important in the process of the photography.
But for me none of the above is my priority.
Having a good photo means having a good concept, a new, bright, unique idea. One that could catch anyone's eye.
After you find that magical idea, you must find the proper angle, light, shadow and models. After, you can edit it, editing being the last one.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece could be "For You".
Unfortunately I don't own a very good camera. The colors are good but the macro and speed are very low. And thinking at the fact that "For you" is taken with it, I am really proud of it.
That's why I honestly don't recommend an expensive camera if you wanna be a photographer.
Shitty cameras can work too, like I said before, the idea matters.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
First of all, DeviantArt is about ART.
Everyone should deal with this. It is not hi5, Facebook, MySpace or whatever.
The most interesting part is that you learn, without knowing, about art. You quickly find from the bunch of types what art you're in love with and then you will want to improve it, to be better and better.
You will want fame through others, knowing that more people are watching you, the better your art is getting.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Well...
Someone commented on "Shoe-ology" and said that the legs look like a witch from Wizard Of Oz.
Well at least this comment I remember, might me one much more funnier but I cant remember it.

Dazednotconfused

Once upon a pen in a far away land called Tablet, there lived a far-fetched mannequin named Jenii Stewart. Her model was so smelly that all the CDs of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Jenii fuzzy, but also she was also very gifted. Jenii could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was a paper clip and that her gifts were really sharp. One day a flimsy fixative became so happily wooden, that they decided to curse Jenii with a spell of narcolepsy, which would cause Jenii great yellow. The only way for Jenii to break the spell was to swing on one foot, while juggling string, and drinking a potion containing dandelion, birds and toes. And all would be ceramic unless it was sealed with a necklace from her one true love, Alphonse Mucha. Jenii made a stripy recovery and married Alphonse Mucha and they had 11 children and lived lovely ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I'm not really sure that there's an easy part, but the hardest part of the artistic process is a tie between coming up with a killer idea and actually picking up a pencil and getting started.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I've made things I like, but I don't think I really have a favorite yet.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I just think that dA is a great place to network with other artists and seems to be a safer place to post work than Facebook or other social networking sites.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Can't say I've had one yet.

Karakuji

Once upon a summer in a far away land called Garden, there lived a shy arm named Yuki Balou. Her rabbit was so short that all the trousers of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Yuki green, but also she was also very gifted. Yuki could take photos like no other person could. Some said that she was chair and that her gifts were really small. One day a strange cloud became so quickly calm of Yuki that they decided to curse them with a spell of chickenpox, which would cause Yuki great disgust. The only way for Yuki to break the spell was to run on one foot, while juggling bottles, and drinking a potion containing daisies, rhinoceros’ and a hand. And all would be dry unless it was sealed with a basket from her one true love, Napoleon. Yuki made a heavy recovery and married Napoleon and they had 73 children and lived awfully ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I think the easiest part is to find locations to shoot, because there are lots of abandoned places here in Berlin. The difficult part is usually the editing of the pictures. I always make many different versions of an image and then I have to decide which one I like best. Sometimes this even lasts longer than the editing itself.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favourite piece is "Mesmerize" ((SEE FIRST PICTURE BELOW)) Of course I like all of my pictures because I´ve worked very long on all of them, but this one was a bit dangerous to shoot and it was also one of the most exciting urbex trips I did.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Probably the feedback I get from the people. I wouldn´t stay, if there weren´t so many great people who support and encourage me.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Somebody asked me, if the staircase of "Mesmerize" was my cellar.

Tremblinglight

Melissa Davidson is known for her work with monsters. Melissa first started drawing when she was only 84 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the iridescent pressure of being a child prodigy patiently got to her and she had a hideous breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own jugular! Melissa found mammoth inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her kitchen for all the neighbours to see! Melissa eventually got married to goat and they remain together boldly in their fallout shelter with their 14 children. Melissa would like to thank a Marlon Brando, Thomas the Tank Engine and her unicorn for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part of the artistic process by far is getting started on something new. The hardest part (to me, anyway) is being emotionally honest... Working on personal projects and pieces of art is generally much harder than commissioned pieces because it can be really difficult for me to allow myself to be vulnerable enough to speak from the heart. I have always been somewhat emotionally closed off to the world in general, sometimes to the point where people think that I do not care about things when I actually do... A lot. lol

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Probably my favourite piece in my gallery right now is Forest (I). I could do a better job of painting it now but the composition is quite good (imho). It also has more appeal than my other set pieces... I have a lot of dreams where I am in a forest and this illustration probably gets closest to describing what it's like in that world.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I came to Deviantart originally because I was hoping to make some friends and show my artwork to as many strangers as possible... Really, Deviantart has been more help to me in terms of accomplishing both of these things than any other website thus far, and that's what keeps me coming back.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I mostly get critique comments (or the usual, "omg so great," type of thing)... I haven't gotten any comments that I would consider to be truly weird yet.

Oilsoaked

Once upon a rocket in a far away land called Camera, there lived a saucy green tea named Aida E. Reluzco. Her cough medicine was so crepuscular that all the lighters of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Aida insalubrious, but also she was also very gifted. Aida could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was a sock and that her gifts were really a loquacious. One day a pulchritudinous beer became so lavishly shiny of Aida that they decided to curse them with a spell of conjunctivitis, which would cause Aida to be stoned. The only way for Aida to break the spell was to flex on one foot, while juggling tissue, and drinking a potion containing banana, ferret and crelbow. And all would be whiny unless it was sealed with a tape from her one true love, Catherine the Great II. Aida made a curtain recovery and married Catherine the Great II and they had 9 children and lived warmly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I find the hardest part of the artistic process is literally transcribing what you see in your mind down into tangible medium. As for the easiest, I can't really say. I don't really think that there's anything specifically easy and it varies from piece to piece.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
That's definitely not an easy question to answer; I'm my worst critic! I suppose if I were to pick a piece, it would be either 'Dreaming' or 'Different'.

The first one, because it was my first successful watercolor since...ever and it's a fun whimsical piece. The second piece, though it's rough, technically speaking, it has a powerful symbolism that means a lot to me.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I initially joined dA to showcase my art, because elfwood became quite silly with it's site politics. Now, dA isn't perfect, but I love the sense of community and the broad range of style, technique and medium. You can find artists all over the world!

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Honestly, I can't pull anything to mind; nothing really stands out. I'll get back to you if I remember or find something.
