How did you first discover deviantART?
:la: I came to deviantART in early 02' looking for new wallpapers. At first I wasn't aware that it was a community. I thought it was more along the lines of a blog where the owner would upload images they found around the web.

What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
:la: After about a year of stealing wallpapers I realized the "sign up" button (yes I'm slow :slow: ). That and the fact that an account was free had be hooked! I signed up, logged in and never looked back. After I started posting and getting involved I knew I would never leave this place. There may be times I wont always agree with what happens around here, but we're a family, it's a give and take relationship, you have to give a little to get a little.

Golden Pen Award : Abstract
sinan is a fairly new vector artist, with roots planted in typography. His flow and expression really helped make his work stand out from the rest of the abstract gallery. His pieces are filled with such depth and emotion it's hard to pass up. It is with great pleasure to award the GPA for the Abstract Gallery to sinan. Be sure to check out his website.
Can you introduce yourself in a few words?
I'm Sinan and I'm not Turkish.
How did you discover vector art and why do you make it?
When I first saw Vector art on DA, I thought it was just hormonal teenage boys creating pretty pictures of pretty girls. I couldn't have been more wrong. There were pretty girls creating pretty pictures of pretty girls as well :lol:
I really got into Vector art because my interest in Winamp skins died (and I realize

I will never forget how Keith's jaw dropped when I opened the package to reveal the gorgeous original... and how I teared up just a little. Thank you so much.


Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
With a record level of nominations and suggestions on an almost daily basis, it would be hard to ignore the community call to recognise such a fine example of a deviant as `snowmask. Her constant presence since the formative years of deviantART has never wavered, demonstrating a natural ability to seek out and motivate those in need.

Katie's beautifully delicate artworks are elegant and instantly recognisable due to her finely tuned creative style, a clear reflection of her personality. With a multitude of journals which are thought provoking, funny and resourceful, it's impossible not to be touched by such a bright light in our community. Congratulations Katie!

Deepthroat Leakage

Wed Apr 27, 2011, 1:24 PM


Hello! A lot has happened since the last time I updated my journal, and I wish to share the news one step at a time. deviantART is still, after so many years, one of the primary places where I share finished work. Since the launch of my website at the start of the new year, I have over the past few months established a system of where to post updates of my paintings, detailed walkthroughs and works-in-progress.

This section on my website is for what goes on "behind the scenes". Archived here are walkthroughs of my paintings, which I update on a regular basis, and it is also where I'll be sharing photos of how I get my paintings ready for exhibits.

High resolution images of my works-in-progress accompanied by detailed annotations are posted exclusively on my website.

There are two very convenient ways to receive updates of "In Studio" postings via the website's resources. By selecting "art update feeds" from the top right menu located at the header, there are options for subscribing directly to RSS, or to receive RSS alerts via email.

Here is another way to follow updates of all things related to my work, as updates from my website are fed directly here and are automatically posted to the Wall. Some finished works are posted here, although not of high resolution. Simply "like" the page to stay in touch.

Finally, there's my Facebook profile, where I like to post work-in-progress images in a "teaser" fashion, in that they are the most up-to-date, but with longer intervals and much less continuity between one step and the next in the painting process. By comparison, "In Studio" is where the most complete documentation of my works-in-progress can be enjoyed, however each detailed walkthrough on my website are posted only after a painting is finished.

In other words, for those who thirst for as-soon-as-possible updates, this is the place to go. There is also plenty of sideshow entertainment, as this is pretty much the only place where I post photos of my husband Keith's delicious cooking, as well as photos of my cats Chiko and Perry getting into feline shenanigans.

Question Tiem

Have you ever tried to relive a happy experience? Was it just as good, better, or disappointing?

My husband and I experimented with this once and we have concluded that at least for us, moments should never be "chased after". So many little things come together to form a full experience, an exceedingly happy one, and it all just falls into a chain of events that almost seems orchestrated - such perfection cannot be replicated by conscious human planning, no matter how scrupulous the eye... and I'd like to think I haven't lost that particular touch.

What happened the second time was by no means bad, but it definitely "wasn't the same". Many months ago Keith brought this up with me and I learned that happy occurrences should always be cherished, and that my ambitions should turn to the future and the new, instead of awkwardly embracing a loved one from behind with both arms backwards.
