DeviantArtist QuestionnaireHow long have you been on DeviantArt?> I've been on dA for 7 years
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?> I would say it’s when I got picked as a Community Volunteer for the traditional art gallery, but in fact, it’s when I first joined the official CV Skype chatroom and met all those amazing people in the CV team…What does your username mean?> My username used to be “Salvador Rudy” My teachers and friends call me Salvador because I like Dali and surrealism, but later I changed it to “SRudy” because I think that the shorter the username the better! (It also goes well with STelari )Describe yourself in three words.> Pessimist, modest, anxious
Are you left or right handed?>I’m left handed
What was your first deviation?> I don’t really remember, but it was probably a pencil sketch on an A4 printer paper...
Oh WellI'm glad I'm not a core member¯\_(ツ)_/¯
My Digital ArtworksI do digital artworks, too! But I don't post them In here, I feel that my deviantart account should be restricted to my traditional pieces.So, I decided to post a few in a journal, rather than submitting them to the gallery.I hope you like them.
DeviantArt's App ReviewBefore I start I would like to specify that I'm running DeviantArt's app on an iPhone 5 running iOS 8. The iPhone 5 has a 4 inch screen, with a 1,136 × 640 pixels retina display.TL;DR: It's a nice app but I like to comment on the littlest things.Starting with the icon, I'm still not a huge fan of the logo. But it's a nice icon that follows the UI guidelines of the iOS 7 design language. And I'm really fine with it, it looks good on my homescreen.When I first opened the application I couldn't differ where a post starts and ends because it's too crowded. I don't know about other bigger screens but I'm giving a review based on my humble 4 inch display. Then I noticed how dark the application is. I personally expected more deviant green, at least the new green. Titles are written with blue turquoise and the background is a consistent black-grey gradient with a 45º diagonal shade that never changes (this
Dear DeviantARTI understand that changes are essential, whether it’s in term of design or usability. I’ve been using DeviantART for 6 years and a half and in these past years, DeviantART has changed a lot, and I embraced every change. I love changes! (except for the new hideous logo - of course) I love the new layout design and I love the way DeviantART introduced status posts and mentions, these are some really cool stuff.But I’m concerned about something. I’ve been waiting for deviantART to bring the footer back but I think I’ve waited long enough and I’m sure now, that there’s no way it’s coming back.I repeat, changes are essential, but if these changes are limiting a user’s activity, you should rethink it.Back when we had a footer, we had the ability to set “channels” and most users had the channel set to Daily Deviations… Now, what are Daily Deviations? Daily Deviations are FEATURED artworks, they change every 24 hours, a

My DeviantART StoryHello guys, It's deviantART's 14th birthday, and I decided to write my deviant art story for you.2007Back in 2007, I discovered DeviantART through a friend of mine, we used to be so into the metal band "Nightwish" and we used to appreciate the emotional photo manipulation artworks in here, especially the ones of MySweetDarkness. I decided to create an account to give feedback for the artworks I liked, I created my first account with a really silly username, I'm not going to share it, though.So anyway, after a while I realised that my username is really stupid and we didn't have the ability to change usernames back then, so I created a new account on Jun 8th, 2008 and I named it Rudz-is-me (that's not better either).2008I started uploading my art to dA and I made some really great friends. Especially darkredbbb who is my best friend now.Here are two artwor
