Welcome to another Artist Showcase! This week is all about elyio
, also known as Gabi. She is a kind and enthusiastic deviant introduced to me by Lolita-Artz
! I really enjoy her photomanipulations and efforts in the community. Let's learn some more about her
Tell us a bit about yourself
elyio I am a High School student with a very big passion for art and writing. I think I realized how much I love art when I was 10 and I started writing stories.For many years I dreamed to become a famous writer!Now I can say that my priorities are still the same but more realistic.I paint, I write books,I write poems, I do even design clothes! My big dream is to go in the USA,to start a little business. I've always wanted that ,at a point of my life, to be there and to say to myself "Look Gabi,you're finally here!" JenFruzz You seem to be really involved in photomanipulations. What made you choose that medium?
About my personality will be so many things to say. I like to cheer people up, I can't stand to have sad people around, I think I am kinda good at making people laugh. I am a funny person. I love food, especially pizza(I think all my friends know about me and pizza! lol)
I sing all the time, I love all types of Rock music.
elyio I discovered photomanipulations almost one year ago and then I fell in love. I am the type of person who has a fantastic imagination so when I saw that I actually can create something using more than 2-3 photos I decided to try. When I was little I always wanted to know how somebody can create all the fantasy landscapes that I had for my desktop backgrounds. And when I saw my first work finished I knew that this is what I want to do.
I create landscapes.I don't know why,but I feel more motivated when I see that the beautiful view from my imagination is becoming reality. This feeling that I always get when I look for good stocks and when I start "blending" them in a new image is something truly beautiful.
JenFruzz Tell us about any projects you have going or planned on deviantART. Anything you're helping with?
elyio The main group where I am an admin FotoManipulationz is holding the first contest for this year "Twisted Cupid" and also a Secret Valentine.
My first Christmas on dA was magically, I saw so many wonderful works here and I tried to feature them in 3 big features. For 2015 I started a project where I want to create as many landscapes as I can, and I hope I will be able to create more than 10! Landscapes from movies, books and more.
On the other hand, I really want to post here one of the books I write, maybe maybe someone would like it.
Other projects at the moment I don't have, but who knows what crazy ideas I'll have in my head in the next months!
JenFruzz What else do you do to keep active on dA?
elyio What could I say? Ugh,yes! I talk alot! When I don't have inspiration to create art, there are days when I open the computer just to be here and talk with people to see how they are doing. I always tell them about pizza, pizza forever.
Here are many wonderful people,and I can't believe that I actually found humans with the same way of thinking as me!(that's really rare lol)
I also help with groups as much as I can.
has only been on dA for one year but has touched many places in our community so far. I personally can't wait to see what else she comes up with and how she plans to stay involved in our community. We're lucky to have her
Now... Go give her page some well-deserved love! Here's some of her artwork to get you started:
I am always looking for new artists to feature!
If you know a deviant with great artwork, who is also heavily involved in the community and deserves more exposure, please send me a note with the username and I'll check it out!
