Community Spirit Week Features
One of the greatest examples of Community Spirit is the monthly contest held by SparklyDest. Donating her own time and money to the contest, she challenges emoticonists to participate each month in a contest for points, subscriptions, and other goodies.  SparklyDest was kind enough to sit down with me and answer some questions about her monthly contest.
:bulletblue: What does EMTC stand for?
It stands for Emote Monthly Themed Challenge...I even looked it up to be sure. :giggle:
:bulletblue: What prompted you to start the contest?
I had a run one or two other contests before this and always loved to see the entries.  It is almost like they made the piece of art just for me, you know? :eyes: Sure sure, they really want the prizes...but knowing that I had a hand in the idea, if only a tiny's a good feeling.  And I have come and gone a lot in this community, disappearing for mo

Emotizine - Volume 3
The twice-monthly article covering news, contests, and other happenings all around the deviantART Emoticon Community. We will also feature interviews, art features, and more. This zine is a collective work of many emoticonists. You can see our full staff list, as well as find additional information on emoticon community events by visiting the official zine group Emotizine.
As we have had a few false starts to the zine, we are still kinda setting in. If we missed an item or two, don't be alarmed. Be sure to follow us over the next few weeks as we broaden our features and get things settled.

Emoticonists Support Stamp Project

Phlum is a younger emoticonist, but that does not diminish his enthusiasm for the artform or his love for the community one bit.
He is active in various projects and community events, and you can often see him watching and supporting newcomers to emoting.

It kinda does, except for that stupid gap :noes:
...and it looked interesting, so why not? These questions are from Arborix.

1.) If you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be and why?
I guess I'd have either a macaque or a gibbon. Macaque because they've got funny faces, and gibbon because they look funny when they're climbing around.
Humour clearly plays a big part in my choice of pet... :lol:

2.) If you could live in any video game that you have played, which would it be?
Anno 2070 springs to mind, because I just love those solar tower arrays. :iconsomuchluffplz:

3.) What was your favorite show/cartoon/anime while growing up?
Tom and Jerry :dummy:

4.) What kind of things do you like drawing the most?
Robots. :giggle: Or spaceships.

5.) Regarding human anatomy, what are you the best (and worst) at drawing?
I'm getting better at proportions...but I suck at everything else. :lol:

6.) What can you hear right now?
'Dogs' from Pink Floyd's album Animals.

7.) When did you join Deviantart? What made you want to join?
I joined on the 22nd of June, 2009, apparently. The reason I joined was to share my drawings with the world.

8.) If you were to inherit a very generous sum of money, what would you spend it on first?
Depends. Are we talking generous enough to outright buy a house, or generous enough to afford a particularly expensive and historically valuable computer? (i.e. the NeXTCube)

9.) Do you have a webcomic, askblog, or something of the sort? If not, have you ever thought about making one?
I've considered making a webcomic many times over the years. Maybe I will someday, but it's quite a time sink.

10.) What do you use to create art with? (Desktop, laptop, tablet, iPad, sculpting tools, mouse, etc.)
That is a very difficult question to answer. For the most part I use either a mouse or a pencil (pen if I'm living on the edge). Sometimes I'll use a keyboard. Other times I'll use an airbrush. Sometimes I'll use ProMarkers. I...have my fingers in way too many pies. :slow:

11.) Have you ever been to a concert? If not, who would you like to go see?
I've been to a few. I'd like to see Rush but they're not touring any more. I've seen Ian Anderson, though, and he more than makes up for it :D

12.) If you could tell your younger self one thing, what would it be?


I ain't taggin' nobody. I also can't think of twelve decent questions. :shifty: If you want to answer these ones, go for it :#1:
