Communities rely on Pillars made of Heart
Communities of all kinds are held up by pillars made of heart. Typically embodied by people who let the weight of their community rest on their shoulders, willing to let life be life. Sometimes it hurts, and sometimes it's comfortable. Regardless, the result is a halo that surrounds all participants in a community. The healing light of being mothered, fathered or cared for. These are very special people who take this role in your community. Maybe this person is you. In which case, please be you today, and every day. Because you are very important. For the rest of us, we all know who the pillars are that hold up the communities that we care
Friday 13th - lucky for some?
It's Friday 13th - usually a day that people believe to be filled with bad luck. In true devious style, let's turn this around and make it a lucky day for some deviants. I'll be giving away Premium Memberships and wishlist items to some lucky deviants. All you have to do is suggest someone from  our community who you think deserves a little luck in their life today.  I'll select a few and reward gifts on your behalf. Leave your suggestions as a reply to this journal, and feel free to spread the word! I'll keep this journal up over the weekend to make sure everyone gets a chance :) Be lucky! :thumb150879191: :thumb365194818: :thumb13619496

My DeviantArtist Questionnaire. Nothing, apparently, is too much if it gets me an exclusive bundle of pixels tacked onto my profile.

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
3 years and 8 months!


What does your username mean?
My parents named me SimplySilent. :B Really, they did.


Describe yourself in three words.
Passionate. Innovative. Rational.


Are you left or right handed?
Right.


What was your first deviation?
It's probably sitting in my gallery somewhere (or maybe buried in my scraps), but I hope it never sees the light of day.


What is your favourite type of art to create?
I used to enjoy creating digital art the most, but now I'm moving more towards water colors and cosplay (sewing).


If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I would love to be able to master abstract/surreal digital art. Something like this, basically:
Drowning Under The Milky Way by NanoMortis
I can't get enough of this kind of art.


What was your first favourite?
Huh, apparently my first favorites were tutorials. Here's the first of them:
Tutorial 11 Outward Appearance by AquaSixio


What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Digital art, like the one above, and photography.


Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
NanoMortis, the artist of the digital piece above. :XD:


If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Celvas, first and foremost. But some others I would love to meet in person include: rainylake SavageFrog Astrikos GinkgoWerkstatt Aphicrys PizzaPotatoNBacon bradleysays LabLayers Schwannie Lawli-Art TheGalleryOfEve Stygma ManboobLover69 (Chrysisi :XD:)


How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I can reminisce forever, but I'll keep it short with just Celvas, who is one of the most fascinating people I know. 

BIFF - Best Internet Friends Forever by Celvas :huggle:

And for old time's sake, those of you who have been around long enough may remember this:
<da:thumb id="431167985"/>
I ship it


What are your preferred tools to create art?
Used to just be my tablet and Photoshop. Now I spend quality time wrestling my sewing machine.


What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Quiet places or art studios.


What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
When this was a thing:
Celvas Agented by Celvas Miontre Monocled by Celvas Simply Bow Tied by Celvas
That's (from left to right) Celvas, miontre, and me, the CSS groupies. :P I think we even had a spiffy group name, though I can't recall it at the moment. :confused:

:huggle: back to you.

Even if none of us ever meet, the fact that we wish we could underlines the value of our friendships. Is what I'm thinking.

You sound like a nice person! :) Nice choice for the "different art" question, too. It does look quite beautiful, to me anyway.
