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.

Hey Artgerm! I'm a really new fan and I really like your pepper artwork. I just wanna ask your questions(since I really love asking questons!). If you bother to answer this, Thanks!

-What Pepper's actual hair color? I see it both red and black.

-How long have you been doing art for and what college did you go to(If you went to one.)?

-How did you know you wanted to art and how have you been doing art?

- And last, which character do you like to draw best?
