Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`Artgerm has very humble beginnings here on deviantART. He began like you or I, just another deviant in a sea of many, and he quietly introduced his art to us, one work at a time. It was immediately recognizable that he had talent, but had not refined it quite yet. Over the years, he took the communities feedback to heart, and offered up his own back. Along the way he became one of the most recognized artists on the site.

And not by following trends or holding his popularity up as a mirror to others, but by sheer hard work and determination and commitment to those who considered themselves fans of his work and believers in his talent.

His passion and dedication can serve as an example to all of us here. Following your own road may take longer, but as you can see, it is well worth the work.

So congratulations to `Artgerm, recipient of deviousness for May of 2008.

You're an inspiration, literally. I was looking up linework to practice drawing and came across some of yours. It's really given me something to shoot for.

I'm sure you've heard plenty of compliments like mine but I still have to speak it up. Your works are simply stunning, both digital and traditional.
Every detail in your drawings, when it comes to poses, to color composition, to design and even the smallest thing as the look in their eyes, results in an amazing way. It catches the viewer's eye because it results into your own style being present in the works, making it recognizable.
I'm sure that all those pieces result from plenty years of practice and determination, not ONLY talent.

I feel like I speak for a lot of people in dA when I say you're a great source of inspiration for people who wish to become professional artist in any field.

Hopefully, you continue to bring us that inspiration (and plenty of other high-quality works) for much, much longer. ^^
