As the title suggests, this news article's goal is to spread the dA love into everyone's heart! You will find here a little bit of everything, from awesome interviews with talented artists, art features, group promotion to random deviants' features. I hope you will find this informative and entertaining!

Interviewed artist: rainylake :iconrainylake:

:bulletyellow: Tell us what defines you as a person.

Photography defines me. Without it, I would not be the person I am today. I wouldn't have taken as many risks if I had not picked up a camera, and wouldn't have experienced major parts of my life that happened because of my camera.

:bulletyellow: How did you found out about deviantART and why did you join the community?

My sister showed me the site years ago, and I created an account. A few years later, I took a long hiatus, and ended up deactivating my old account. This summer, I got nostalgic of this place, and came back :) I joined because my sister forced me to. She always believed in me as a photographer and made me post my work. :aww:

:bulletyellow: When and how did you discover your passion for art?

I've always enjoyed art, since I was a child. I started to pick up photography when I was very young. I got my dslr about four years ago, and haven't been able to put it down since.

:bulletyellow: What inspires you the most and when do you think your creativity is at its maximum?

Birds and nature inspire me the most. Not to mention my wonderful sister's artwork. I find my creativity sparking when I hear birds outside, or whenever I am surrounded by a forest.

:bulletyellow: What do you think you'd be doing if you hadn't chosen this path?

I honestly have no idea what would have happened! :)

:bulletyellow: What do you think it's your most meaningful deviation and what makes it special? Does it have a story behind it?

My most meaningful deviation? I would say Twig. It's very close to my heart. I remember the day clearly that I took this photo. I watched a happy sparrow gather twigs for the nest she was building. I was fascinated, and had a very clear shot in my brain that I wanted to take. I stood still for hours, just so she would get used to me and my camera. Eventually, she settled in a tree branch that was very close to me, in the exact position I had imagined. I took my shot, and she stayed for a few more moments, chirping happily. It was such a peaceful day, I will never forget it.

:bulletyellow: Do you have any insecurities regarding your art?

I've always felt like my photos aren't good enough. I have a very hard time believing in myself. But who doesn't? :giggle:

:bulletyellow: Did art ever helped you to deal with your life problems?

Yes. I use it as a tool to deal with my emotions. You'll notice a huge increase in my uploads if something complicated is going on in my life.

:bulletyellow: What is the one thing you always wanted to do but never got a chance to?

Go to Africa. :la:

:bulletyellow: A few words for our fellow artists?

Be kind to one another and support your fellow deviants. Whether it be with features, kind words when they are down, or useful tips for them to improve their work, everyone needs some sort of support that you can provide. :la:

:thumb355012352::thumb355013246: Winning isn't everythingCongratulations.
Why, congratulations...you win!
And this will be the ninth time,
the ninth time you've won.
Soon enough, it'll be the tenth
and it's what I hate most about you -
how you want to win, all the time.
A mere joke can be twisted into
an inevitable argument, where
hot tears are shed and
relationships are broken.
That's why you're always,
always, going to be alone...
because you can't bear to lose,
'cause you're only used to winning.
Congratulations... you win,
and your prize?
A lifetime of loneliness.
