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.

hi

QemisDrawsStudent Digital Artist

The quality of your work is exquisite and seeing how far you've come is inspiring for beginners like me. By the way, I have opened my first commission here, if anyone wants to take a look...

Commission OPEN | (For Now!)

Sorry for the spam, but i don't know if you'll ever come back here!

Any plans to do more justice magazines art?

Hey there, can you do another art of Queen from Girls of the Wilds? :)

Hi there, is it possible I can use any of your Dota artwork for fanmade cards in Steam Workshop? I will make sure to credit you fully for the artwork, and its a noncommercial and noncanonical entry.

(I am aware that Valve made this character, and I have cleared it with them to make fan cards, as long as it's noncommercial)

Hello there. You are a very popular man now, ArtGerm.
