Katrina Schaman

Katrina Schaman is known for her work with pickles. Katrina first started drawing when she was only 365 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the jittery pressure of being a child prodigy foolishly got to her and she had a shiny breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own kneecap! Katrina found cuddly inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bathroom for all the kayaks to see! Katrina eventually got married to Raggedy Ann and they remain together suddenly in their cabin with their zero children. Katrina would like to thank Sir Isaac Newton, Darth Vader and Matisse for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I find that the easiest part of the artistic process is starting a new painting - there are no expectations, I just sit in front of a blank canvas and freely lay colours down. I find that the process gets harder near the end of a painting when I have to think about every small decision I make because one small mistake could ruin weeks worth of work.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I am constantly changing my mind about which pieces I like the best, I may love one painting today and another tomorrow. Today I feel drawn to the piece called Fire Flower.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I love the deviantART community because it is inspiring to see so many different types of artists all appreciating each other's work. People are always positive and I rarely see negative comments posted anywhere on the site.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I just looked through a bunch of my comments and couldn't find anything weird or strange but I will be sure to let you know if I get any in the future!

HeatherIhn

Heather is known for her work with potatoes. Heather first started drawing when she was only 49 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the gigantic pressure of being a child prodigy slowly got to her and she had a furry breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own earlobe! Heather found squishy inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her garage for all the dogs to see! Heather eventually got married to George Clooney and they remain together quietly in their barn with their 3 children. Heather would like to thank Beethoven, Tom Cruise and Vincent Van Gogh 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 actual painting and coloring. I really love it, and I find it to be really soothing and at the end - rewarding. The hardest part is coming up with the initial idea and fine tuning my sketches. I guess it's partially because I am so anxious to start coloring!

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I honestly don't know if I have a favorite piece. I'm a pretty hard judge to myself, and it's difficult for me to look back at my older work (usually). However, one that comes in mind is the "imaginary friend - mud stew" painting. It just reminds me of my childhood and I love drawing cute monsters.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I absolutely love the deviantart community. At deviantart, I have an overwhelming amount of support that really keeps me going through tough times, and there is also an inspiring amount of talent there.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Hehe...I once drew a self portrait, and someone said, "I love the androgenous quality!". I wasn't sure how to feel about that...but I guess it was a compliment? Haha, I wasn't offended though, it just made me kind of stop and laugh.

ArcaneLucidity

Nathan Ng is known for his work with sparks. Nathan first started drawing when he was only 7 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the hilarious pressure of being a child prodigy extremely got to him and he had a pink breakdown, resulting in him cutting off his own pinky! Nathan found fiery inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his kitchen for all the girls to see! Nathan eventually got married to Ken and they remain together brutally in their car with their 73 children. Nathan would like to thank George Washington, Obama and KĊsuke Fujishima for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
Since I do traditional work, and I don't get an undo button, I find that retaining white space for highlights is rather difficult. For now.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
So far my favorite is my latest, Rage. It's the closest I've gotten to convincing fire, and I feel like I was able to convey more emotion than I usually could.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
For one, the da community has such a wonderful community. I'm surprised that there aren't more trolls or what not around. Everyone I've met has been very nice and supportive. That and there's an audience for the type of stuff I do.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Funniest? I think it had to do with man boobs or something.

T-bone & Aljaxx

T&A are known for their work with glue sticks. T&A first started drawing when they were only 74 years old, making them a child prodigy. However, the smelly pressure of being a child prodigy excitedly got to them and they had a bright breakdown, resulting in them cutting off their own eyelid! T&A found blue inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in their basement for all the toasters to see! T&A eventually got married to their mommy and they remain together noisily in their mouth with their 42 children. T&A would like to thank Gandhi, Bob Barker and Mondrian for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest/hardest parts of the artistic process?
T&A: The easiest part is physically creating the piece, it's when the creative process really takes off and when we can bounce ideas off of each other.. The hardest part would be signing and sending it off, because that's when the journey's over.

Which is your favorite piece and why?
T&A: Ha! Every new piece is our favorite... until the next new piece. I think this year alone we've spent alot of time exploring different styles and processes. We had a blast doing the redesign of Rush 'N attack, it was challenging to create new art that emulated a dedicated mid-eighties arcade cabinet, for something that was actually from the era.

What do you feel is the significance of online communities to inspiring artists?
T&A: Right now, it's the best way to get yourself known. We've met so many different types of artists and collectors who we've traded info and sometimes collabed with through various forums and communities. You ask for honesty, they give it to you. One of the major setbacks for artists pre-internet was not having a weekly/daily repetoire with other creatives. Now here sits a world of inspiration.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
T&A: It was at the Bowery Ballroom in New York, we were selling our art prints for Brother Past. Some guy stumbled up to our table and asked if we had anything real to sell, besides our "placemats".. He then proceeded to demonstrate his point by placing his drink on the counter display print. Sold! And we all walked away, each learning our own valuable life lessons..

Derlaine8

Art Libs was feeling merry again today and decided to post DOUBLE the number of images featured again. This will not become a regular thing, but tis the season for umm... something, right? Anyways, everyone please have a safe and happy holiday!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM ART LIBS!


Laine is known for her work with boxes. Laine first started drawing when she was only 0 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the perfunctory pressure of being a child prodigy extremely got to her and she had a smelly breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own arm! Laine found boxy inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her study for all the bags to see! Laine eventually got married to Gandhi and they remain together extraordinarily in their doghouse with their 5 children. Laine would like to thank Winston Churchill, Jesus and Picasso for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I usually find sketching the hardest. Easiest is the detailing; it is tedious but more straightforward.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I think my Morrigan piece has been one of the more successful ones lately.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
The attitude there is generally positive.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Recently someone said they recognized my art on Gaia because of the random Naruto placed in the background haha.

Emiya

ZOMG EVERYONE! It's Christmas Eve! Waaaaaaaaah! If you don't celebrate Christmas, then happy holidays everyone! However, I do and I am in a really cheerful mood, so for this ONE day, I'm featuring DOUBLE the amount of images I normally post (mind you, half of them are tiny... but nonetheless). The person I chose to feature today is Emily Pickett and her art is absolutely brilliant and I am in love with it. If you are checking out this blog today, make someone's Christmas (or holidays) by favouriting some art or if you're on deviantART, add someone new to your devWATCH!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL YOU GLORIOUS FOLLOWERS! ART LIBS LOVES YOU!


Emily Pickett is known for her work with tomatoes. Emily first started drawing when she was only 2 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the shiny pressure of being a child prodigy slowly got to her and she had a spicy breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own elbow! Emily found mellow inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her attic for all the squid to see! Emily eventually got married to a beekeeper and they remain together quickly in their doghouse with their 14 children. Emily would like to thank Queen Elizabeth, Justin Timberlake and James Jean for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I would say the easiest part of the artistic process is how the world can be your playground. Art has no limits, making it a very exciting medium to explore. On the flip side, no limits can sometimes be absolutely overwhelming, making it tough to be creative!

Which is your favorite piece and why?
My favorite piece would have to be "Elephant Song." I drew it on a whim once upon a time. Everything seemed to fit so effortlessly. I have always been extremely fickle with art pieces up until Elephant Song. It has been my favorite for awhile now!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantART is a wonderful community where you can inspire and get inspired by other people. It makes my day to receive both positive and constructive criticism, as well as help out a fellow deviant.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Somebody once commented on a character piece I drew saying:
"LEMME BORROW THAT TOP.
and those earrings.
and sunglasses, please!"
I considered being a fashion designer, but quickly changed my mind.

M-Bae

M-Bae was born on June 28, 2007 in Toronto. She was one of 3 children born to Superman, a lawyer, and Brad Pitt, a wrestler. In 2012, M-Bae began taking photos for fun of cheetahs and putting them together in a portfolio. Very soon, she was discovered and sent straight away to the Supreme Court to begin taking photos of Washington for Facebook.
M-Bae would like to thank Sigmund Freud, Beyonce and Eminem for always being her sources of inspiration.


What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I use to do black and white dark room photography when I first started in highschool in an attempt to try something new in the midst of all the math and science courses. Though I admit using digital photography is REALLY easy in the sense that you have a memory stick that holds 284903284290 images for you, transferring, printing, etc is just all so convenient. As for when I use to work in the darkroom for 3 or 4 years, it was really tough just buying specific film, taking the photos, if you screw up, buying new film, redoing the shoots, taking the film out in a BLACK BOX (so no light ruins the unprocessed film plane), develop it in chemicals.... dry it out over night... now develop it in more chemicals.. WOW it was a lot of work.. but you know what? none of it really matter... I enjoy being a photographer.. it lets me visually express and visually remember things =)

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Not a favorite piece (because I take way too many photos)... but my favorite subject is... my dog Pudding =) My beautiful shetland sheepdog that looks like half lassie half fox ahhhh she's always greets me by the door when I come home, hides in my room when there's thunderstorms, waits for me when I'm on a trip, and just a whole lot more... I love her like nothing else in this world, hope I can add another sheltie to the family though =) would love another dog! They're so beautiful!

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I would honestly have to say my primary reason is because of the network DA has already set up here. A place where thousands of professional and amateur artists come together to look at all media, look for inspirations, trade skills, simply chat.... I am drawn towards DA because it allows me to spend my time with people who share the same interest as me rather than posting my pictures on ... something like Facebook where... people may not appreciate your work in an artistic way.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I an attempt to not get spammers posting their pictures up on my DA forums.. I made people have to write the word "Pudding" in their post... the crowd was so great, they were left me not only their art to look at but numerous attempts at trying to be creative and funny with my request. "POO-DINNNNG" "PaPaPaPoPaPaPaPoPuddinngFace", etc

Dierat

Diedra Rater was born in 1492 in a petting zoo. She was one of 573 children born to Dracula, a fisherman, and Bartholomew the Mad, a UK sales director. In 2015, Diedra began taking photos for fun of fingernails and putting them together in a portfolio. Very soon, she was discovered and sent straight away to the horizon to begin taking photos of mufflers for Google.
Diedra would like to thank Naopleon, Madonna and your mom for always being her sources of inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The easiest part is starting a piece and fantasizing about all the cool stuff you're going to put it in, and the hardest part is finishing a piece and accepting that maybe all that cool stuff doesn't really fit or isn't very practical for this particular image. When you first start a project, the possibilities are endless, but with every mark you make, the possibilities reduce. It's always sad to come to the end of that project and think back to all of the different ideas you had that you weren't able to see realized.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece is Sky and Sea because it's the best piece I've done so far and it came out pretty much how I wanted it to. I feel like with each piece I advance in my understanding and skill so the next piece will be even better, and I feel that's especially true with this piece. I only hope that I can continue to learn this much from every piece so I can continue to progress as an artist.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I like that the community is so large and so varied that it includes all types of artists and art-lovers and doesn't limit itself to a particular genre or subgenre of art. You can put all of your work, whether it's lit or photos or fantasy, all in one place.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
I have a piece of wow fanart depicting a tauren from a few years ago. One of the first comments was, "I guess you're heading to TB!" and at first I thought by 'TB' he meant tuburculosis.

Emirasmussen

Emily was born on September 19, 1810 in a kitchen. She was one of 152 children born to Alfonso, a tight ropewalker, and Lola, a professional wrestler. In 1903, Emily began taking photos for fun of pillows and putting them together in a portfolio. Very soon, she was discovered and sent straight away to the end of the rainbow to begin taking photos of snowflakes for National Geographic
Emily would like to thank Siddhartha Gautama, Taylor Swift and Hermione Granger for always being her sources of inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?

For me the hardest part is translating an idea from my mind to the paper. I'm a photographer and a writer, and I find this the case in both of these fields. Sometimes when I take a picture I'll want it to turn out exactly as I see it, but it rarely ever does, which can be both frustrating and enlightening. The easiest part I would say is coming up with ideas for stories or subjects for photography, because it seems so spontaneous--sometimes I'll just be sitting in a boring class at school and think of a magnificent story plot. Or I'll be riding a bus and look out the window and think, "Now that would be a wonderful photograph"

Which is your favourite piece and why?
Currently, my favorite piece is Footprints in the Sand, because it reminds me of my trip to Costa Rica and Panama, especially the transition period I had in between the two countries. It reminds me that in life we always leave footprints in the sand, and even though sometimes the waves come up and try to wash them away, we can always retrace them.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantART is really the only place that I share my photos, and I like how people really can appreciate the work and beauty of the pictures. I also like browsing around and seeing all the magnificent work others have created.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
On my photo "Grasshopper Giant" I have a comment that reads "OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD" and then later "DID IT BITE YOU" I thought those were pretty funny!

Doksuri

Doksuri is known for her work with muffins. Doksuri first started drawing when she was only 7 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the lovely pressure of being a child prodigy quickly got to her and she had a bright breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own foot! Doksuri found nice inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bathroom for all the shoes to see! Doksuri eventually got married to Vincent Van Gogh and they remain together smoothly in their shed with their 2 children. Doksuri would like to thank Abraham Lincoln, Tyra Banks and Frida Kahlo for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
The hardest part is thinking up what to draw. I usually come up with ideas at the strangest of times but getting them done on paper can be a challenge. The easiest part would proabably be colouring my finished linearts :D

Which is your favourite piece and why?
My favorite piece would have to be: . It's an older piece and I still love it! There's just something about it that isn't in my other pictures. Romantic pictures are really fun to draw :)

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
Getting feedback from people that are at my skill level is great! And just that fact that I get the chance to show my artwork to the world is a great feeling :)

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Umm, oh my XD I can't seem to remember!
"This must be some birthday sex!!!" and "Dawww wait...are they making babies?! XDDD LMFAO"

Stareater

Marc Huth was born in 1945 in Berlin. He was one of 17 children born to Marc, a monkey and Jonathan Jr. a lumberjack. In 2000, Marc began taking photos for fun of cars and putting them together in a portfolio. Very soon, he was discovered and sent straight away to kindergarten to begin taking photos of cameras for Vogue.
Marc would like to thank Hitler, Michael Jackson and Spiderman for always being his sources of inspiration.


What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
I cant really say whats the easy and whats the hard part, it depends on the project. Sometime its easy to work on an idea but to find the perfect people for it can be really hard.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I took this one in '07 as I left my family and my friends back in Germany to work in New York City and to live there on my own when I was 19. This photo should show that New York City is like a huge toy world where you can make (almost) everything possible or just to go there and have a great time like when you are 6 years old again and played with you toys. New York City is a toy, use it to make your dreams come true.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
I'm there for inspiration and to get inspiration for my projects.

Weirdklown

Angel Szafranko was born on July 13, 1908 in a zoo. She was one of 24 children born to Birtha, a janitor, and Olga, a fake Santa Claus.

Nayth

Nayth is known for his work with octopus. Nayth first started drawing when he was only three and a half years old, making him a child prodigy.

Nayth found gross inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in his bedroom for all the ectoplasms to see! Nayth eventually got married to a bunny-girl and they remain together hectically in their mill with their one trigazillion children.

Easiest part is actually painting :D, hardest is gaining mastery in painting -_-

Which is your favourite piece and why?

Sinribbon

Sin Ribbon is known for her work with tomatoes. Sin first started drawing when she was only 6 years old, making her a child prodigy. However, the squishy pressure of being a child prodigy increasingly got to her and she had a moist breakdown, resulting in her cutting off her own butt! Sin found smelly inspiration from the lost limb and decided to frame it and hang it in her bathroom for all the tea sets to see! Sin eventually got married to Jerry and they remain together deeply in their ’79 Corvette with their 23 children. Sin would like to thank James Madison, Liv Tyler and Pablo Picasso for their constant support and inspiration.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
More than linework or coloring, I would have to say the most difficult part is thinking of something to draw and how you want to draw it. It can be easy at times if you're doing a simple drawing, but even having an idea in your head doesn't always get you far. Sometimes an idea will turn out differently than you envision or you're not entirely sure how to bring it life. I find that I'll often stare at a blank sheet of paper for a while before being able to put my idea down.

The easiest part is probably inking since you're pretty much tracing over lines. :P

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I like all my pieces for different reasons. The gifts I make for others always bring me joy. The pieces that take a long time and hard work always make me feel accomplished and proud, and the personal pieces resonate with me psychologically and spiritually. I do prefer artwork, both mine and others', that has some kind of meaning behind it.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there, that draws you to the deviantART community?
DeviantArt is well known and in many ways set the standard for the Internet art community. Many artists I'm a fan of post their pieces here, and when I decided to put myself out there and become part of the art community, DeviantArt just seemed like an appropriate step.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
Hmm... Most of the comments I've received have been pretty constructive and complimentary, but on my Sailor Moon fanart, I did receive this comment: "OMG where is the sweet Serena???? she look so sad and in pain :p but i guess that´s what you wanted ;) so good work!!!" It made me chuckle.
