[CR] Great Photojournalism in dA: Vol.2If "Your community, your choice" = true, then "Our community, our collection" = need to do![CR] Great Photojournalism in dA: Vol.2 by Helewidis
:iconheleflirtplz: It's simple logics!
I started a collection in mid-November 2008 that I dream of us to continue together. It is called Great Photojournalism. You can see it at: http://helewidis.deviantart.com/favourites/?7202532#Great-Photojournalism-in-dA

Eulogy by AlanRalph
I first met Amy dualdesigns in 2004 when I joined the support group Circleoffriends that she had started a while before. At the time I wasn't myself in need of support, but was interested in trying to help out other people. After about a year, I was asked to become a moderator for one of the notes groups, and got to know Amy and the other mods a bit better. Since the summer of 2008 I've also been acting as one of the administrators for the group, alongside termagen and MelissaGriffin
Amy would be the first to admit that she's had a tough life... several bad relationships, struggling to raise her kids, plus several long battles with illness. But throughout all of that, and in spite of occasionally dropping off the radar, she has never stopped being there for the people that she cared for - and she cared about a lot of people here on dA and elsewhere. Circleoffriends was her ba
Over To You...Xerces!Over to who?Over To You...Xerces! by RockstarVanity
I recently wrote a journal entitled Horror photographers, over to you!, about art, self-promotion and the art of self-promotion. I invited the readers of that journal to write an artist bio and choose some work from their own gallery to feature so that I could pimp them in a series of awesome news articles. Since not all my watchers are horror photographers, I have welcomed artists who shoot within other genres too.
Over to you!
You can see all the articles in the series here, and new ones will be added regularly. If you'd like to submit your own artist bio, check out the info here and send me a note. Obviously I'd prefer you to have at least one horror photo in your gallery, and

How did you first discover deviantART?
I think it was while searching for pixel art. It was a long time ago.
What was it about dA that made you want to stay?
Actually, it wasn't until 2004 that I created an account. I think I started being a dA regular ever since my interest about art was revived. I stayed simply because I found dA to be the biggest and best art community in existence.
What is the story behind your username?
It has been my username ever since I started using the Internet. It's composed of the first two letters of my name, concatenated with the first three letters
of my surname. Simple.
What do you remember of your childhood in regards to art?
I used to draw a lot, and from what I can remembe
I was a cruiser and desktop stealer from late 2000/early 2001 but finally took the plunge and created an account on Sep. 23, 2003! It's almost my accounts 12th birthday!
My username is named after the voice actor for Pikachu from the cartoon series Pokémon; Ikue Ōtani. When pokémon first came out I was obsessed and my folks bought me a themed calendar and I noticed her birthday linked up with a special day of my own so I adopted it as my online handle. You'll find me across the www with the handle ikue or pikachu or some combination of the two.
I choose you!
When I was little I would write with my left hand but in primary school they literally beat it out of me. I'm a righty now, and can't even fathom how to write with my left.
A desktop wallpaper I made based on a tutorial I found to teach myself Photoshop.
My favourite type of art to make is always the next piece I'm going to create. I honestly don't like to be bogged down by genre when it comes to art. There are so many different kinds and ways to make it, I just like to see where the inspiration takes me. Right now it's baking. Yesterday it was photomanips. Tomorrow it could be anything!
Calligraphy/Typography. I love to dabble, but just don't have the time to practice!
Probably digital art.More specifically Vector.
Oh man… that's an impossible question to answer! It depends on what I'm in the mood for that day. There are so many varied artists that make me squeal in delight every time one of their masterpieces graces my notifications centre I truly can't decide.
So many of you have taught me that it's okay not to fit it. That I could stray from the norm and still be loved and that I will always cherish.
Illustrator, Photoshop, Ballpoint Pen, HTML, CSS, Camera, Cooking Ingredients, whatever else I can get my hands on!
The internet! Working from home I don't get out much, so it's nice to have an enormous source of inspiration just a click away.
There are so many but one of my most vivid is from the Vector Week program I ran for projecteducate waaaay back in July of 2008. I met some of the most amazing people and shared my favourite art style at the time with some of the best artists in that genre. We talked for countless hours about art and nothing at all and formed a bond I don't think will ever be broken. It was educational for me in so many ways more than just what vector art really was. It's so hard to put into words… I just love everything about that week, even the crappy setbacks and arguments. It was such an amazing rollercoaster.
