Russell Montgomery

Russell Montgomery is known for his work with circuits. Russ first started drawing when he was only 1,984 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the zapped pressure of being a child prodigy exponentially got to him and he had a manufactured breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own random access memory! Russ found processed inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his laboratory for all the intelligence to see! Russ eventually got married to copper and they remain together increasingly in their shelter with their 816 children. Russ would like to thank Miyamoto Musashi, Rene Margritte and a lynx for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest: Finding inspiration. If it doesn’t spew out of my head when I sit down to write or draw, it can be acquired with almost no effort. A quick walk or even a thorough look around the room is usually enough to inspire accordingly.
Hardest: Finding time.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Peace of mind. It helps me dream in colour.

What makes your art unique?
This seems like more of a question for someone other than myself to answer, but I suppose both the medium I choose to work with (1-bit pixels) and all the strange influences I’ve had combine to create something of a unique end product. I’ve been told that I have a very uniform style, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is unique… I’ll have to let others judge for themselves.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
To be honest, I have no idea. Unfortunately I’ve found that people tend to give very standardized flattery to me, assumedly to spare my feelings if they really don’t like something I’ve done. I detest that. People should speak their minds readily. If all I hear is bullshit, my work will eventually turn into bullshit.

Schall

Once upon a creation in a far away land called story, there lived a sleepy magician named George Schall. His eyes were so bright that all the canvases of the land were all very jealous. Not only was George digital, but also he was also very gifted. George could draw like no other person could. Some said that he was crowded and that his gifts were really cranky. One day a beautiful face became so friendly that they decided to curse them with a spell of apathy, which would cause George great sleepless. The only way for George to break the spell was to shoot on one foot, while juggling feet, and drinking a potion containing pineapple, sea turtles and necks. And all would be deadly unless it was sealed with a gun from his one true love, Thom Yorke. George made a strange recovery and married Thom and they had 21 children and lived falsely ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest: to create. It pops from nothing, and goes up to infinity and back to the earth. Hardest: is to project the creation. 'cause it's very hard to create limits or boundaries to an idea and expect it to be the same idea. Or something like that.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Favorite piece, from my portfolio (I bet it is, 'cause it's impossible to choose from others)? I'd have to say "our rocked world". Why? I don't know. maybe because the idea came out freely and the illustration took exactly the path I thought it should've taken. and it's really moody, from lots of different aspects, in a way that sums up most of my personality. Also, because it's simple, and yet, it holds a lot.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I think, the opportunity to see and to be seen. "sharing" is the word, to be exact. I think technology made things a lot easier, so everyone can eventually become a fine artist with a few clicks, but as a matter of fact it also improved the way we can relate with that. so, it's actually more difficult to be "genius", because the level is absurdly high, and the level is that high especially because we can communicate so easily, and so on.
I think what I'm trying to say is...art today is ALL about sharing thoughts. and less about being a genius. deviantArt is a place for community, not show off. and I respect that a lot.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh, there wasn't anything too weird, but I specially liked "garudanam"'s comment on "Pagina1 Definitiva":
"porra, mais um quarterão e minha casa apareceria... muito bom cara!"
that's portuguese, and it means something like
"damn, if you'd drawn one more block, my house would've appeared...very nice, man!"
the illustration is a portrait from Paulista Ave, a very important avenue in São Paulo.

Cadydid

Jessica W. is known for her work with ladybugs. Jessica first started drawing when she was only 69 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the dreamy pressure of being a child prodigy mysteriously got to her and she had a jazzy breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own eye! Jessica found imaginary inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bedroom for all the cats to see! Jessica eventually got married to a cloud and they remain together gently in their house with their 9 children. Jessica would like to thank Mark Twain, Amy McDonald and snow leopards for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
For me, the easiest part of photography is walking outside and seeing all there is to see. All one has to do is take a stroll to stumble across something interesting, something beautiful worthy being captured and remembered. The tough part is taking that photo and editing it just so, making it stand out amongst the rest to draw emotions from the observers. There's a happy-medium when it comes to editing photographs in programs such as Photoshop; too little and the photo is glanced over, too much and it's snubbed.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece out of my gallery is "Individuality". Nature is not perfect. There's "abnormalities" and mishaps around every corner, and most of the time, these special individuals are ignored for their strangeness or gawked at for their weirdness. To me, these oddities are beautiful because they stand out amongst the rest, strive to be recognized amongst their peers.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I joined the deviantArt community a year before I actually submitted any of my works. Now, because this community is so friendly, so accepting, I feel free to post my works on the site. When one is surrounded my fellow artists, one will grow competitive and wish to show their worth in such a neighborhood filled with talents. Everyday I spot a photograph, writing, or drawing that brings an emotion out of me. This causes me to want to match this powerful force, to be the one that causes such emotion. In deviantArt, one is allowed to explore all varieties of art and to strive to be their best.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Hmm, the weirdest/funniest comment I've received on a piece? The majority of the comments I receive are pretty serious, but the one that made me giggle is erikarobinson's comment on my piece Individuality: "I thought it was a snake at first!"

MadameLEOTA

Denis is known for his work with ghosts. Denis first started drawing when he was only 21 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the amazing pressure of being a child prodigy lovingly got to him and he had a huge breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own lips! Denis found dull inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his kitchen for all the trees to see! Denis eventually got married to Sherlock Holmes and they remain together quickly in their birdhouse with their 12 children. Denis would like to thank Elizabeth I, Audrey Hepburn and Andreas Deja for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The probably easiest part for me is to find new ideas and get started. I won't be long til my imagination is inspired by something. You see... if you haven't a good idea or scene in mind all your effort and toil will be useless. The drawing won't have heart. The hardest artistic part for me is to get the hand - especially the fingers - right. I don't know why, but I always need hours to draw a single hand - draw, redraw and so on and so on ^^

Which is your favourite piece and why?
This is a pretty tough question because I like most of my art. But to narrow it down I would say that I really love my Disney Villains. One of the main reasons is that I always loved the evildoers - ever since I was a little boy. On the other hand... this is a picture that will never be completed because I will always try to add new characters or change certain elements. It's a kind of a ongoing growing thing, you know.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I really don't know. I guess it's just because I've searched so long everywhere for such kind of art community. And when I've found deviantART I was absolute amazed. So many good artists feature their works here - it's probably the best online art database. To be honest the moment I saw their works I thought "Oh my gosh... there's good! I could never do such things" Compared to some artwork on deviantART my drawings are nothing more than random doodles. I was totally overwhelmed with the kind comments by other users. It helped me a lot to improve my drawings and find my own style - especially in the color design.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
At High School (I think I was in the 9th grade at that time) my art teacher came to me, looked at my drawing, and said aloud infront of the whole class: "Well Denis, it seems to me that you haven't got any talent at all! But don't worry - just try very hard and who knows... maybe you'll be lucky enough to get a D at the end of the year!" She was such a jerk.

Ninjaink

Timothy Lim is known for his work with mice. Timothy first started drawing when he was only 28 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the terpsichorean pressure of being a child prodigy vivaciously got to him and he had a mellifluous breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own butt! Timothy found curvacious inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bathroom for all the cages to see! Timothy eventually got married to crepitation and they remain together repeatedly in their outhouse with their 13 children. Timothy would like to thank Doc Holliday, Arnold Schwarzenegger and a guinea pig 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 is the idea: the hardest is its execution.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece would have to be the one entitled "Merry Christmas". It's a kitschy piece that combines two heroic figures, Optimus Prime and the Christ-child, into one sentimental image. It's an homage to mythic heroism and was a rare work where the end result turned out exactly as I envisioned it. I thought the art community would stone me to death for the sentiment, but I've received nothing but praise.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantArt is best seen as a digital gallery, museum, and personal space all rolled into one. One can peruse other works, draw inspiration from various styles, showcase one's craft, and keep a private repository of favorites. Being free doesn't hurt, either. :) It's also great to receive immediate feedback from others and use page hits and comments as a barometer for artistic progress.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
A poster named LifeisaGlitch commented on my work, "Batman with Chainsaw Nunchucks," saying, "oh my God, you isolate the awesome particle!!!" It was a clever and funny statement and I try to use it as much as possible for other things.

Otherwise

Otherwise is known for her work with candies. Otherwise first started drawing when she was only 35 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the traditional pressure of being a child prodigy candidly got to her and she had an avid breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own ear! Otherwise found single inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her den for all the koi fish to see! Otherwise eventually got married to a crucifix and they remain together swimmingly in their bathhouse with their 19 children. Otherwise would like to thank Jesus, Albus Dumbledore and the snails for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part is getting the foundations down, getting a good concept and silhouette and whatnot. Thinking conceptually for my own projects is really hard, because for me that's not the main draw of the thing--I have a really strong devotion to a small clan of characters and story worlds that I'd really like to do justice to. My first thought is usually, "What could I do to let Dr. Jekyll do something really cool?" and not, "How could I compose Haruki in this picture so as to avoid tangents?" But those basic foundations are really important . . . inevitably I get impatient and rush things and try to fix them later. That never happens!
Easiest is probably working on detail when you have a really strong foundation. Then it's just silly mindless self indulgence.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I'm pretty fond of this one image in my recent dump of Jekyll and Hyde art. It's a simple Hyde portrait on a red background, with him peering at you from the side. Right now I'm really fond of it because I have a particularly bad time staging characters who are basically sticks. I end up drawing them limp and scribbly and ucky, but on occasion I can imbue actual life into them!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Well, it's easy to upload there and it's easy to check up on artists on my watchlist..... XD There are also a few friends there I'm fond of keeping in touch with. I'm not terribly good at the whole "community of art" thing, though.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
At one of the school showings of my short "The Thirsty Gargoyle", I got: "It's a good thing your film came after all these dark films. There was just too much dark shit. It's nice to have some milk to mix in too." From a famous man in a kilt. It's not the weirdest comment, but it was the most recent odd one I've gotten. I'm still not entirely sure it was a compliment.

Spicysteweddemon

Once upon a cracker in a far away land called spam, there lived a gooey tractor named Kathryn Hudson. Her stool was so pretty that all the jars of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Kathryn sticky, but also she was also very gifted. Kathryn could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was an owl and that her gifts were really a curvy. One day a pair of sparkly scissors became so quickly razored that they decided to curse them with a spell of elephantitis, which would cause Kathryn great dirtiness. The only way for Kathryn to break the spell was to stab on one foot, while juggling rabbits, and drinking a potion containing cactus, zebra and elbows. And all would be flaky unless it was sealed with a school from her one true love, Martha Washington. Kathryn made a bumping recovery and married Martha and they had 648923 children and lived groovingly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part for me id the actual execution of a piece. I love to draw, and it comes rather naturally to me. The hardest part for me, on the other hand, is deciding what to draw and how to arrange the composition. I send an enormous amount of time looking at photos and arranging still-lifes. For me, ninety percent of the work I put into a piece happens before a pencil touches a pad. The actual execution of the piece goes pretty fast after that.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Probably my digital piece 'Beach Bums'. It was one of the first pieces where I actually liked the colors I chose. My background is in drawing, usually with a pencil or India ink. I never ‘learned’ to paint and always struggled when it came to adding color to my works. The last year and a half, I have learned to use Photoshop to color my work. There are things I like and dislike about this process, and I know I have a lot more to learn before I feel confident with this method.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I guess the fact that it is such an active community. You can receive comments from super talented artists and easily make artistic connections with like-minded individuals. After graduating from school, becoming an active member of deviantart is a good way to stay in touch with an artistic community.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Someone said they wanted to stalk me in real life….odd.

Carazul77

Once upon a bicycle in a far away land called Apple, there lived a quick sugar named Ebru Baraz. Her sand was so bitter that all the hairs of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Ebru sensitive, but also she was also very gifted. Ebru could take photos like no other person could. Some said that she was a road and that her gifts were really long. One day a red page became so absolutely different that they decided to curse them with a spell of diarrhea, which would cause Ebru great angry. The only way for Ebru to break the spell was to run on one foot, while juggling cream, and drinking a potion containing bananas, a cat and necks. And all would be slow unless it was sealed with a frame from her one true love, Napoleon. Ebru made a jump recovery and married Napoleon and they had 7 children and lived madly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I want to start with the hardest part.. Sometimes being in the mood for create something takes time.. Or find something to get in the mood.. I'm more creative and active when I'm happy... and have nice results after a good photo day make me happier of course..
The easiest part is sharing my work online :)

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I can't choose one , really.. Because all of them come from the same heart..

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I love dA , because it's international, popular,living and free space to express myself to the world... I can upload unlimited photos on dA, I can sell them..
dA, because you may have many friends from different countries, you may easily view their art, make comments and add their work to your favorites.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Actually I never remember those kind of things :) But I can share a comment that written recently on my "myCat" .. I find it really funny :)

she says, "If she's anything like my cat Ridley she'll be thinking 'Can I eat it, play with it or poop on it?' Ridley's ruined many a pair of my hubby's shoes with that little trick! Lol."

I say "hahaha :) my Minnos doesn't poop / pee on shoes, actually it's a dog habit , isn't it ? :) mine is very playful, and curious , everything is a toy for her :)"

and finally her reply "I wish it was a dog habit. Mind you, I think Ridley might have multiple personality disorder!"

Shane is known for his work with snakes. Shane first started taking photos when he was only 7 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the otherworldly pressure of being a child prodigy carefully got to him and he had a tiny breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own toe! Shane found ancient inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his loft for all the hope to see! Shane eventually got married to Chicago and they remain together swiftly in their shack with their 6 children. Shane would like to thank Gandhi, Tom Green and Rozen Maiden for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Coming up with an idea, and following it through to fruition.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Ooh, I don't know that I even have a favorite. My guess is that they all suck in their own unique ways.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
A good community that just oozes raw talent. It's a great place to learn and be inspired.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Aren't all artists just strange anyway?

Tragic-Memory

Tragic Memory is known for her work with flowers. Tragic Memory first started drawing when she was only 110 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the stunning pressure of being a child prodigy merrily got to her and she had a shiny breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own neck! Tragic Memory found fabulous inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her basement for all the waterbottles to see! Tragic Memory eventually got married to a shoe and they remain together complacently in their castle with their 80 children. Tragic Memory would like to thank Elizabeth Bathory, Anna Faris and a cat for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part of the creative process I have found, is the fine tuning of a piece you are excited about finishing. Putting the extra details, shading etc..it's all done with a certain care. The hardest part about the creative process, for me, is the execution of a really good idea. It's hard enough to get an idea, but when you do, if it doesn't come out right it is frustrating. That last bit goes for my modeling as well.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I think my current favourite thing in my gallery is "Blood Clown"
She just kind of sucks you in.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I love DeviantArt, I am not fully sure why..I think that is part of it's magic. lol. It is a good place to get your work exposed, seek guidance on what you can do with yourself artistically, it gives you a chance to get feedback from your peers. You can make friends on there pretty easily as well.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Strangest comment...hmm..I can not really think of one off the top of my head. I do find it strange when people feel the need to state unnecessary observations ..ex: There is a wound on someone (drawing), or some stitches, and people will just comment with "ouch that must have hurt" ..

Sourya

Sourya Sihachakris known for his work with weasels. Sourya first started drawing when he was only 5 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the abstract pressure of being a child prodigy gracefully got to him and he had an accurate breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own penis! Sourya found dizzy inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his kitchen for all the eyes to see! Sourya eventually got married to He-Man and they remain together awkwardly in their house with their 7 children. Sourya would like to thank Genghis Khan, Elvis Presley and a wolf for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest part: making the rough and composition.
Hardest part: drawing the background (when there is one), I am very bad at drawing them.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I like "Love Letter" a lot.
I think the atmosphere is nice, and the girl is pretty :)

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I like how deviantART is open to the world. Like, you can have feedbacks from anywhere.
The 'add to favorites' system is very nice. It's easy to browse from one gallery to another, passing to a Korean artist to a German one for example.
There are many amazing artists that inspire me very much. Thank you deviantART.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
"Kupo."

EeehOoops

Once upon a sun in a far away land called Hands, there lived a warm curl named Codrina. Her bubbles were so green that all the bridges of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Codrina simple, she was also very gifted. Codrina could take photos like no other person could. Some said that she was happy and that her gifts were really beautiful. One day a scented cigarette became so lovingly unbreakable that they decided to curse them with a spell of leukemia, which would cause Codrina great sadness. The only way for Codrina to break the spell was to love on one foot, while juggling rain, and drinking a potion containing orchids, horses and shoulders. And all would be small unless it was sealed with a friend from her one true love, Napoleon Bonaparte. Codrina made a twisted recovery and married Napoleon and they had 7 children and lived carelessly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Hmm I would say that the hardest part of the artistic process is to get the photos you take to match the image that you have sketched in your imagination (I never stop until I get it right), and the easiest I would say it's the editing, or at least for me it is, because I prefer to leave my photos more... natural. I only play with the selective color and the curves when it comes to editing.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
It's quite hard to say, because all my photos have a special meaning for me, but I think my favourite piece from my gallery is: "I opened my heart to you" , mainly because it has a strong concept and it's a photo I can relate to anytime. Yes, I do open my heart to certain people, and only after I made sure they will not break it later.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Well I first discovered dA 2 years ago, by chance I could say, and I made an account. Back then I didn't know what photography was all about (I used to take silly photos with my cell phone and consider them great) and now when I am looking back and when I am seeing what I have become and how much I have developed, mostly because of this community, it just makes me really grateful to all the people who supported my work, and encouraged me to do more. And the desire of always outdoing myself is what keeps me going and what makes me continue my work on dA, where I know I will always get constructive criticism and support.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Someone asked me to marry him through a comment on one of my photos. It was pretty sweet actually. Now I am friends with the guy and we talk pretty often.

Saejinoh

Saejin Oh is known for his work with butts. Saejin first started drawing when he was only 1590345213894792 years old, making him a child prodigy. However, the lazy pressure of being a child prodigy surprisingly got to him and he had a dull breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own butt! Saejin found crazy inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his hall of stormwind for all the soryuken to see! Saejin eventually got married to Wolverine and they remain together wittingly in their tent with their 1223 children. Saejin would like to thank Nietzche, Michael Jackson and an elephant for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest: picking a subject / hardest: getting it right

Which is your favourite piece and why?
None

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
It's the only mainstream art website that gives you a personal page, as opposed to uploading the art to a forum like conceptart.org

bQw

Once upon a film in a far away land called Tea, there lived a gelatinous fingernail named Brian Quentin Webb. His diet root beer was so tasty that all the earwax of the land was all very jealous. Not only was Brian colourful, but also he was also very gifted. Brian could take photos like no other person could. Some said that he was a spleen and that his gifts were really cagey. One day an evil rangefinder became so measurably flippant that they decided to curse them with a spell of Monkey Pox, which would cause Brian great gamy. The only way for Brian to break the spell was to play on one foot, while juggling Sponge Bob pens, and drinking a potion containing ginseng, red-eared slider turtles and someone’s left kidney. And all would be kaput unless it was sealed with a logbook from his one true love, Rachel Maddow. Brian made a jolly recovery and married Rachel Maddow and they had 33 children and lived presently ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part is picking up the camera. It's always in my messenger bag and, even though it is mechanical, really takes so effort to use. The hardest is learning how to see. Unlike other forms of art, including other genres of photography, you can't create or physically move objects around to create your piece. You can't pose or stage anything. You have to develop a sense of sight...learn how to see compositions in what already exists.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Of mine? This one: "Longing". It features one of my sons, so I'm biased.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The people. Their energy, their sense of community, their talent, and their willingness to share. All of it helps me to continue to mature as an artist.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
"What's film?" Seriously. But the kids was only 12 and really, truly didn't know...before his time. God now I feel old. He liked the "look" though.

SamuraiDragon

Once upon a mad march hare in a far away land called Poodle, there lived a warped cup named SamuraiDragon. Her dragon was so woolly that all the drums of the land were all very jealous. Not only was SamuraiDragon squat, she was also very gifted. SamuraiDragon could draw like no other person could. Some said that she was an armadillo and that her gifts were really splayed. One day a squashed gargantuan became so pathetically spikey that they decided to curse them with a spell of pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcaniconiosis, which would cause SamuraiDragon great frazzled. The only way for SamuraiDragon to break the spell was to pirouette on one foot, while juggling compound bows, and drinking a potion containing tulip, honeysuckle, pineapple, and carrots, otters and belly button. And all would be squinty unless it was sealed with a dagger from her one true love, Captain Cook. SamuraiDragon made an old recovery and married Captain Cook and they had 7.777778 children and lived extraordinarily ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Easiest? Colouring I think. Hardest? Sketching something I'm happy with, but tis all in the quest for improvement, aye.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My most favourite piece of art is actually in the making at the moment. When I finish that the next big project I start on will become my favourite, no doubt.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The fun and happy and smiley community! You wouldn't believe how much my art has improved since discovering the internet (ergo, deviantArt) It's so nice knowing that once you've finished a hard-worked piece of art, that you can share it with people who really do care to see it.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Oh... well, that's a toughie. Once someone was critiquing and called my character a 'he', when she was actually a she. Not that strange really, but it told me just what needed improving!

Neko-Suika

Sarah Rose is known for her work with candles. Sarah Rose first started drawing when she was only 8, 734, 512 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the sweaty pressure of being a child prodigy aggressively got to her and she had a hot breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own toenail! Sarah Rose found juicy inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her attic for all the erasers to see! Sarah Rose eventually got married to monkey brains and they remain together willingly in their barn with their 67 children. Sarah Rose would like to thank Harriet Tubman, Britney Spears and a tiger for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
To me, the hardest parts of the artistic process is getting an idea and drawing proportions correctly. Sometimes ideas come easily but sometimes it takes me days to think of a good creation. the human porportions I've been trying to master pretty much as long as I've been drawing and taking classes. The easiest to me is shading and color. I have so much fun with them too.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favourite piece is probably the volcanic eruption because I had an idea which was fun, I didn't have to worry about porportion problems very much, and I gotta use color and draw a natural disaster (which was fun! ^_^ )

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Mostly I have a deviantart account because it is a chance for people to see my art from far away (since my family lives in WA and I live in France) and because I like participating in contests.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Hmm... I haven't received anything that out of the ordinary but I'd have to say "radioactive spider bite had head-enlarging side effects". It was just a critique but it made me laugh.

Monkey-hero

Monkey-hero is known to work with geese. Monkey-hero first started drawing when they were only 1/3 of a year old, making them a child prodigy. However, the fabulicious pressure of being a child prodigy frantically got to them and they had a feral breakdown, resulting in them cutting off their own toe! Monkey-hero found annoying inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in their sale de seiour for all the wienerwurst to see! Monkey-hero eventually got married to a felt pen and they remain together thoroughly in the palace of Versailles with their 2/3 of a child. Monkey-hero would like to thank Napoleon Bonaparte, Senator Clinton and a shrew mouse for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
What I find most difficult at times is how to bring my ideas onto paper. Sometimes, it's just the other way round, I need to find ideas first. It really depends on what "artistic" mood I'm in. Then, another big obstacle for me is the painting process. Since I don't really have let's say a "routine" way of coloring, almost every new piece seems like a real pain. Unfortunately a lot of outlined pieces are left unfinished on my computer this way.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I don't have a favourite piece. There are pieces that were real fun all the way and there are some that felt more like a compulsory task.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
My first year on dA was kind of a let-down. I had the feeling no one noticed me, so I gave up on submitting art after the first few pieces. But after a year or so of absence I wanted to submit again, I really wanted to share my work with the broad community this time and made more efforts to do so. Now I go to my account there almost everyday, I especially like how dA connects all the people on this planet, it's like a big world fair.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Sorry, I can't recall. But I think all the comments make me laugh or scratch my head now and then.
