What is this Awesome Achievement?
The Deviousness Award is an accolade which is traditionally handed out
on the 1st of every month to one truly outstanding deviant.

The Deviousness Award for September 2012 goes to SaTaNiA.






Hi Damien! First off introduce yourself, who are you? In and out of the internet?

Damien Girodon aka Satania, is a young French guy of 24 years old.

Even in real life, my friends are calling me Satania or Dams.

In my everyday life, I'm working as a Systems Designer (engineer) for the RATP (Railway Transportation Systems in Paris).

Basically, I'm working on software for automatic train.

On the web, you can find me a bit everywhere as Satania (FB, twitter etc etc)
I'm mainly online for deviantART but not only :) I'm a real addict to the nerd side of the web.



Fractal Art is one of those art forms I don't understand, (in the sense that I don't know how to make them) but I certainly see the beauty of it and I think your work is incredible. What got you interested in this art form?



That's a really long story ! In fact the very first time I've seen a fractal, it was on deviantART 8 years ago!
I was looking for a new wallpapers and i've see this artwork :
Four Winds by amulet

I was just amazed... then I've looked on the web for the software the deviant use and I've discovered a new world.
A world where everything is infinite and you can almost do everything, the only limit is our mind (ok ok the software too...)
I was really amazed by all those "abstract" shapes and colors.
When I start using apophysis, I really fall in love with those infinite possibilities.



You've been a deviant for more than 8 years. What brought you here? And what do you think has changed in the community during all these years? Do you consider the site is better, worst or simply different?

Haha, Thanks for reminding me the fact that i'm a old fart :giggle:
What has changed during all those years?? Really ??
First the deviants... we were a few deviants compare to nowadays !! It was a bit more "underground" :)
The UI, what a maze !! Those who remember those old days, will remember the submission system ! 4-5 pages to load (with a 128K modem), it was a real pain !
Then deviantART exploded, new UI, new submission system, deviantMEETs, groups, fav collections, discover, and more like this !
It really evolved and while deviantART is now bright and shiny, it still have this awesome community spirit and even more awesome artists.

Tell us about the devmeets you help to organize in Paris. Some of these devmeets even have the status of "official" and you've had the opportunity to meet spyed and other DA admins. What motivated you to start doing these? Many people often say they would like to attend a devmeet, what would you recommend them if they want to organize one?




18th Parisian devMeet by ZeldaDreams Cotton Candy Time by ZeldaDreams
Paris devMeet v.13 - 2 by ZeldaDreams 7th Unofficial Paris devMeet 6 by ZeldaDreams
When spyed and Heidi made the 1rst world tour, I was working and I wasn't able to attend this awesome event :tears:
About 2 months later, I've discovered a couple of deviants: TheNeoShaman, Breizhbleiz and ZeldaDreams, who were organizing deviantMEET in Paris !

So I decided to attend my first deviantMEET (in september 2009), which was simply A W E S O M E ! About 30-40 deviants which were all kind and welcomed me so warmly! (ok ok ok with some beers too)

As I really loved this meeting, I've decided to contact ZeldaDreams and to ask her if she needs help for organizing meetings, she asks the founder, they agreed, and tada! I've become one of the core for those meetings.

Paris Official dM 2 - 16 by ZeldaDreams Paris Official dM 2 - 10 by ZeldaDreams
Paris Official dm 2 - 12 by ZeldaDreams Paris Official dM 2 - 3 by ZeldaDreams

Now 3 years laters, ZeldaDreams and I are still making those meetings, and we're still loving and finding this spirit that spyed and the staff his giving to the community everyday.

How can we stop to make devMeets when you know that every month new deviants are joining and are discovering the "real" deviantART meetings ?  The one where you experience the DA's infamous spirit all around when you regroup some deviants ? :)

If I had only one advise for the others ... DO IT NOW !
If you can't attend because there's no devMeet around your city/state then create it, simply set a location, a time and bring some papers and stencils and here you go !!



:iconzeldadreams:
"SaTaNiA is a talented artist whose art grew up with DA since 8 years. The community is a great part of his life. I can't count the times we spent hours talking about artists, new community projects or simply showing art we love to each other.
His art improve with every new deviation he uploads. You don't have to be a fractal expert to see that !
Online he's always willing to help others deviants interested in fractal art or those who just have random questions.
Offline he's equaly amazing. He's always resourseful and enthusiast for the DeviantMEET-Paris .
We share the same famous deviantArt spirit and I can assure you that his life wouldn't be the same without it.
"




:iconlindelokse:
"As a fractalist myself, the first thing that comes to my mind about SaTaNiA is all the good times spent ponging parameters and learning together, always with a big smile and a lot of enthusiasm. We have a very similar way to work with fractals and I really love his works, especially the use of colour and the neatness of the flames. Since the very first times I talked with him, I was amazed by his very lively attitude, not only towards fractals but also (and maybe mostly) towards the community: always involved in some project, always preparing something nice, always ready to help and support. A very inspiring example for quite a shy and selfish person that I am! That's why I was so happy when I saw his avatar in the space for deviousness recipient at the bottom of the page, I really thought "Oh yes, at last!"!!! :)"




:iconanoya:
"I've known Damien for quite a while now, mainly because of the devMEETs he organizes with ZeldaDreams and it was so awesome to meet both of them a few months ago in Paris! He's such a great person, online and offline.

Damien is a true inspiration and his incredible community spirit is something I really admire. He definitely had Deviousness coming!
"




:iconyasny-chan:
"I'm not good with speeches, in fact is very hard for me express my feeling with words specially when I tried to talk about people I love. Damien is one of those special people I deeply love and admire. He's not only the guy who create awesome fractals, help community and organize cool devmeets, he's more than that.
Damien is talented, humble, he cares for his friends, he's funny, he is... well... there's not enough words that can describes how is Damien, I can only say that I'm very glad to know him and he deserves all the awards in the world :D
"




:iconwreckling:
"Damien is an energetic, hardworking, caring, and incredibly talented artist whose positive energy and passion toward his craft can be felt just by seeing how he talks about the work he creates and sees others creating. He's always going out of his way to lend a hand to others, offering support or ideas for new projects, and sharing the knowledge he has so others can learn as well. He's a great combination of gifted and down to earth, and he's a guy well worth getting to know."


You seem to be quite involved in the community, part of many groups including some official ones like devBUG and fella What do you consider to be your motivation for this? What would you advise to those who want to do the same?

As I'm always saying, I really want to give back deviantART what it gave me during those 8 years.
So I've start to use the beta testing option of deviantART, and report bugs on beta features...
Then some months after this, devBUG (the place to be when you're a beta tester), ask for some deviants with a real motivation to help them in alpha testing new products.
And with some luck I've been chosen to help them !
And here I am, testing new features before they're released on beta stage (and even some that you may never see :eyes:).
It's been the same thing for fella.

Now I'm proud to be part of those project :la:


If all this just wasn't enough, you also received this month's Deviousness Award. How do you feel about this? What was your reaction when you found out?

Just ... I'm zoo freaking happy!
If there's one thing I've never thought about, it was to be a senior and it happenned the 1rst April 2010.
But now a deviousness ... this is just unbelievable ...
It was saturday, I was really tired from a hard week, ZeldaDreams and I decided to make a quick nap.
I wake up around 4PM GMT and decided to quickly browse dA.
I just open my browser and BOUM ! a fn' deviousness on my main page!!!!
I couldn't believe this at first so I furiously click on my MC and look up for fourteenthstar announcement.
But it was really me !!
I run to the bedroom and wake up ZeldaDreams to tell her about my deviousness ! I was just crazy!!! Yelling everywhere my happiness!!
And believe me or not 10 days after this announcement I still can't believe it !

What's your favourite dessert?

...but Im NOT an animator or artist or anything like that. Ive never studied (and never plan to study) art. Im 20 (soon to be 21) years old chemistry student. Im not going to work with art in the future as Im planning on making a research on artificial skin. Drawing and animating is ONLY my hobby.

So there you go... Im not. By any means. A. Professional. Animator.
I think lots of you are taking that Crynime project a bit too serious. I dont want to disappoint you in any way, so please, dont be pushy about it. It will only make me NOT want to continue it.

Thank you for understanding... :heart:

~Kiwa

PS: If you have any questions, PLEASE, read the FAQ first =_= Im not going to answer the same old questions like "what program do you use to animate". I have other things to do (like SCHOOL work).
PPS: If you just want/need someone to talk to, you can send me a PRIVATE message on tumblr (kiwakostalova.tumblr.com/)

One of the many complaints lobbed at me is that I have enormous influence on a younger generation and therefor it is incumbent upon me to shape up and fly right so these young tikes get the best artistic advice possible. IE: People worried that my “bad art and methods” are corrupting the next generation of artists and therefor I should stop making art altogether to prevent this.

Setting aside the ignorant and harmful messages that this sends to young artists (such as the ignorant concept that all young artists only ever follow ONE artistic influence their entire life and aren’t influenced by ALL the art around them at all times), I decided to see how much credibility this “fear” actually had... using MATH.

So I have about 57,790 watchers on DA. I’m not counting other sites like Facebook or my website because there’s obviously some overlap, and some of the people who hate me will fill in that gap. So roughly 57,790 people on the planet watch me. There are estimated 7,046,000,000 people on Earth. Therefor at BEST I can influence roughly 0.00082% of the ENTIRE world population.

By comparison, James Cameron’s Avatar (the highest grossing movie of all time) had around 97,255,300 tickets sold, thus influencing around 1.38% of the entire world population.

I think it’s pretty safe to say that the validity of my “bad influence” is pretty weak. And besides, even IF I really DID have a huge influence on younger artists, I am not cynical or mean-spirited enough to believe that I would be the ONLY influence they ever had artistically growing up. I dunno about the rest of you, but I had a LOT of artistic influences, many of which had conflicting artistic advice and goals.

So yeah. I might not have the best artistic habits, but the artistic community and especially those here on DA are not in danger of my bad influence “corrupting” the art world and ruining anything.



PS: If someone would like to do better math calculations and figure out a much more accurate number, by all means do so. I have no idea how you'd do that, but if you can, more power to ya!

In other news, I apparently messed up my hands a few days ago and I'm not able to draw. Or, at least draw "correctly" ^^; I hope my hand will heal up by the time I get to the convention so I can draw some sketch cards :)

Meanwhile, our family dog, Ginkgo, is staying with me for two weeks while my parents are on vacation. He's super sad that mommy is gone (and forgot to bring his toys), so I gave him an old/broken StupidFox Plush. he enjoys carrying it around and chewing on it (surprisingly very durable so far considering he has destroyed every other dog-toy we've given him), but he mostly likes to use it as a pillow.



PS. For those of you with a StupidFox Plush, I do not suggest letting your pets play with it because it's not a real dog-toy :P We watch him very closely when he plays with it and make sure he doesn't actually try to eat it.

Tangentially related but isn’t it kinda silly how so many people in the gaming community bitch and whine about how no one should “judge a game by it’s cover” whenever people have a problem with promotional artwork that’s released to the public *COUGH*metalgearsolidquietdesign*COUGH*, yet then turn around and BEG and PLEAD for everyone to judge a trailer for an upcoming movie like Michael Bay’s TMNT?

So the new trailer for the Michael Bay TMNT movie has been debuted:


My thoughts?

It looks pretty stupid IMO. The designs of the turtles are generally awful and unappealing. The very worse of the immature “realism = adult” mentality that Michael Bay is noted for infusing into everything. Their shells look more like over stuffed backpacks, they TOWER above all the other actors in gangly long legs, and their faces fall right into the uncanny valley effect. Not to mention that the actor playing “the Shredder” is clearly phoning his acting in, as it doesn’t remotely sound like he’s interested or invested in anything he’s saying throughout the trailer. Curiously, I had no problem what-so-ever with Megan Fox as April o’Neil.

Director Justin Leiberman has previously had a lot of experience mixing live action and CGI effects (having done Battle for LA and The Wrath of the Titans), so I don’t really have a worry about how well the turtles are integrated into the environment. I just... they’re ugly. Their designs gross me out. I don’t want to watch a 90 minute film where they look like that, ya know?

I could still be wrong and it could still be good... but thus far it seems to have conformed to all our of worse expectations about this troubled production. It’s going to be incredibly hard to hear these turtles quipping 1-liners and joking with each other and being lighthearted and funny when they look do damn disgusting and unappealing.

And that’s my two cents.

Yeah, let's talk about those little sumbitches. Also because I'm tired of seeing that old Christmas post here, I need to freshen up this page a bit.

Anyone here into Amiibos? You know, those little figurines Nintendo have been drip-feeding us for a few months? I like the idea of Amiibos. Not so much as figures you can use in Smash Bros. for Wii U as this is quite the gimmick to me, but more the fact that they're fairly high quality figurines of emblematic Nintendo characters and which are actually collectable. That was the appeal I found in them. Thus, I started a collection. Boy I was in way over my head.

I don't know if you guys have been following this closely, but collecting Amiibos right now is pure hell. At least in North America. Shipments are scarce, quantities are really limited (mostly due to a port strike occuring on the West coast but also Nintendo who planned this all wrong). You have to pre-order almost everything in order to assure you a complete collection. And if you didn't pre-order in the first 10 minutes of their availability, well you're stuck with nothing. Then you have to either order from Japan at $30+ each figurine, or turn to scalpers who inflate prices often over $50 for the rarer Amiibos. This ordeal is both time-consuming and expensive.

BUT STILL OMG THEY LOOK SO GOOD TOGETHER I MEAN LOOK AT THIS DOESN'T THAT MAKE YOU WANNA BUY THEM ALL.


Screw you, Fox McCloud. Your delivery is dragging, you're not part of the family picture.

So yeah. Anybody else going through this? Any interesting stories to tell? Any inside info on when wave 4 will be available for pre-order? Let's discuss Amiibos!
