'I Came, I dAmned, I Founded' - Interview1) First off, can you tell us a little bit about yourself!'I Came, I dAmned, I Founded' - Interview by leaf-lover
Well I'm a wannabe photographer Well trying to get there and I'm slowly learning about it. I'm really pretty boring haha. I work at a local coffee shop and I'm a pretty friendly person. I joined DA almost 5 years ago and I've been hooked ever since! I love meeting new people and looking at such creative art on here So ya sad but DA is where I spend a huge chunk of my time
2) When did you first discover dAmn, and can you remember the first room you ever chatted in?
I discovered it back in 2004 and the first room I went into was #photographers
3) What prompted you to create :#iPhotograph Did you feel dAmn was missing a room on a specific topic? Did you think other rooms weren't catering to a user's needs? Tell us all!
Well :#iPhotograph: was originally going to be a new username for me because i was kind of bored with the one I have now but then I thought " Hey th
What Makes You Smile? - Contest WinnersThe Contest along with the rules and prizes can be found hereWhat Makes You Smile? - Contest Winners by FaMz
Finally we have our winners for the contest! Judging was rather hard...Levi - BeehiveStudio and I sat staring and contemplating the pieces over and over again. First we awarded points to the top 6 that really made us smile based on the judging criteria, technical execution was weighed less, remember the photo had to make us smile? We both had two entries that we adored and then further deliberating led us to our top 3.
So put your hands together and congratulate the Winners! Levi and I will be notifying all prize givers shortly
Thank you to all those who participated, helped pimped the contest and donated all the lovely prizes! It was lots of fun, I look forward to holding more in the future

PhotographyAPN News-The UnseenOne of the things I REALLY enjoy about being the GM for APN (Photography>Animals, Plants & Nature) is finding so many incredible images by unknown and unseen deviants, deviants whose work is not seen and yet, is completely outstanding and very inspiring & influential.PhotographyAPN News-The Unseen by kkart
Today, join me on a journey as we examine some of the photographs I have recently come upon that reside in the APN gallery, along with images in a select few other galleries that have APN qualities in them, and be sure to check out these deviants galleries, you will NOT be disappointed!
Every image here is from a different photographer. And if you know of any others whose work is this good and is unseen and unknown, please note me!
More can always be seen in my collection http://kkart.deviantart.com/favourites/#The-Un-noticed-by-Unseen-deviants
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.
