Golden Pen Award : AnimalsAnimalsGolden Pen Award : Animals by Ikue
Goncharden is new to deviantART but he is not new to the art world. His creative style and unmistakable work reflect a deep history of artistic talent. He has somehow managed to blend abstract elements and extraordinary colours to create some of the most unique and inspiring works i've ever seen, and for that he is undoubtably deserving of the GPA for the Animals Gallery.

How did you first discover deviantART?
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?
After about a year of stealing wallpapers I realized the "sign up" button (yes I'm 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.
