This has been a pirate-themed month for me, so I thought I'd call peoples' attention to this contest: hiddenyume-stock.deviantart.co…

:bulletblue: Deadline is 28 February. 
:bulletblue: 2400 points for the winner plus a whole heap of other prizes and lots of stuff for runners-up.
:bulletblue: You must use one of HiddenYume-stock's pirate pictures as the main character
:bulletblue: See the contest rules for everything else.

(BTW: I'm always happy to do more shots dressed as a pirate if you need an extra male model for your piece and can't quite find what you're looking for. Just ask!)

The Questions

1. Why did you join DA? and are you still here for those reasons?

Definitely not! I originally joined dA to get inspiration (read: shamelessly steal art :spank:) for characters in a computer game I was making. After a  couple of months I realised that I was enjoying making art much more than programming the game, so I began photo-manipulating for fun. At some point I started making my own stock images to plug gaps in what dA had to offer. Then I began to share my stock, and now I am hooked on 'capture-share-wow' cycle of spotting a great scene and seeing what amazing pieces of art people make with it. 

2. Marshmallows or Sprinkles?

Bleurgh! Neither. Alright, marshmallows, you can set light to them and they burn with a nice blue flame.

3. What skill would you like to learn and why?

I'd like to be able to draw! I can cut out photos and piece them together, but I am incapable of doing anything from scratch :(

4. Favourite art type that you don't do yourself?

Oil painting. It's like magic to me.

5. What gadget would you like to be invented? Why?

Universal translator. I'd like to be able to have a conversation with my wife's Iranian family or read some of the portuguese archaeological reports that come my way.

6. What or whom is your inspiration in Life? Work? Art?

Life: Gandhi's stance on human kindness. Work: John Barrett's analysis of Neolithic-Bronze age Britain. Art: the awesome pictures I see here on dA.

7. What book or film would you save if the world might end and why?

Anne Frank's Diary? Might be a bit depressing if the world is about to end though.

8. One place on earth you could happily escape to?

The greek islands are amazing. I could happily spend my time on Naxos, Santorini or Ios.

9. Marmite. Good or Evil?

Gooooood! I love that stuff.

10. Kiss or cuddle? (assuming you haven't just eaten Marmite)

Can I pour marmite onto certain body parts and kiss it off?

New Questions

1. If you could do one thing to improve your art (assuming you had enough money and time), what would it be?
2. What's the one vice you fall for every time?
3. Last thing you cried over?
4. Tell me a bit about why you like your favorite book? If you don't read, go for favorite film instead.
5. Favorite historic period?
6. Is there a kind of food you love, but just can't get hold of anymore?
7. One person you want to say sorry to, but probably never will?
8. Do you have a dream of one day making it big in a particular artistic field?  (Assuming you're not there already!)
9. Do you play computer games? Any favorites?
10. A virus is making everyone in the world is go blind. You hold in your hand another virus which will neutralize the first, but in doing so will kill half the world's population. Do you unleash it or bin it?
