ARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art Chatroom

Artgermination Chatroom

Many people has asked me about the rationale behind my nickname - Artgerm in many occasions. To me it is more than just a nick, it is actually my mission statement in my art journey, which I would like to see people get "infected" by my works and inspire them to create art. I've been drawing for the past 20 years, in which 16 years in digital medium. Art has already been part of my life long time ago - it is my passion, my profession and my life. Although majority of my time has been devoted to the commercial projects and my family and leave me very little time to impart my art knowledge to others outside of my studio, my mission statement has never and will never change.

As a result,  I've decided to setup a deviantArt chatroom recently called Artgermination for all digital art discussions, which I put in a good amount of my time daily to interact with other dA members, sharing with them my journey in art and conduct art streaming sessions for the members and the regulars. Many great artists hang out there regularly to inspire each other and it has become a little home for them. I remember there was once a member asked me if i found satisfaction in sharing my art knowledge with others, I told him that I found more than just satisfaction, I found PURPOSE.

Therefore I would like to invite you to my humble house of digital art within this massive community.  I am sure you will have a great time here. :)


From the groundbreaking art team Imaginary Friends Studio comes a collection of Monster hunting, zombie war journalism, gritty superhero action and
twisted existentialist fantasy stories with concepts inspired by the theme of Heavy Metal.

Hey Stan, with exactly two weeks left on the Lost Kids Contest, any chance you can say something about it in this new journal? Just a little blurp at the end would help a lot already, some people have been a bit lost regarding the deadline, it would be nice to help them out :)

Your works have always been a huge inspiration for me, and I've learned so much from participating in your chat rooms alone! It's really wonderful to be able to learn from a professional in ways like this, I find it very helpful.

I got a copy of the Vilppu Drawing Manual by the way.
