DeviantArtist QuestionnaireHow long have you been on DeviantArt?Ohh, that's a tough one. I have joined the community in school, but actually I had to look in profile to know that: I'm a deviant for 8 years.Actually in my first year, I didn't do so much, so I see myself as part of the community for 7 years now.What does your username mean?It's a nickname a friend made in elementary school. She made it out of my name and the word 'sabbeln' which means 'to talk much'.Describe yourself in three words.Loyal, courageous, friendly.Are you leaft or right handed?Right.What was your first deviation?A tough one again. I don't remember that. The oldest I have in my gallery is this one:What is your favourite type of art to create?PhotographyIf you coule instantly master a different art style, what would it be?Writing, I guess.What was your first favourite?I have no idea
Refugees welcome... or not?It's summer in Europe.Usually that means many happy faces,in the swimming pool, at the meadows, in the parks.At the moment it means hate.All over Europe, countries discusses wether they can welcome refugees or not.Which amount of people can the country hold?Who has to go?In Germany, we have two big themes at the moment: Refugees and accusing two journalists for treason.Both are in a bad situation. Both makes people angry, but it's still a big difference here.While the journalists have most german people on their side, the refugees have problems.Some germans (actually a big amount of us) wants to help the refugees.For some reason, these people are mostly the well-educated ones with the good jobs.And then there are the others. The haters...I don't understand it.After WWII and the German Reunification we were open for foreigners.Each and everyone helped the others. How couldn't we?We felt guilty. We knew what happened. We knew what WAR meant.
Polarity ContestIt's time for a new Contest!PolarityWhat's this about?We want to challenge you to think a little outside the box. Most artists have a comfort-zone and create their art within this. What would happen if you would create the completely opposite, too?For example: An artist likes to create fan art with epic fighting scenes from movies or books. What would happen if he was challenged to create his own character reading a book? Or a writer who likes to do horror-stories which now has to write a fairy-tale?You see, we want opposites. We want to see polarities.Opposites belong to the world and to a good story. Create opposites. They don't have to be so extreme like the ones we described, but we want to notice them.Examples? No problem: What do you have to do? The Rules:Write in your artist comment, that your work i
