“It is such a big honour for me to be part of DeviantArt and now being this month’s Deviousness award winner. I am Hellobaby, a self-taught artist, who loves drawing. My main tools are pencil & colour pencils and while I didn’t go to art school, drawing is my passion. It’s hard to believe that I joined DeviantArt 10 years ago! When I first joined, I was so confused and didn’t know how to use DeviantArt, so after I created the account, I left it. About 5 months later, I came back and started to share my work. My first work was not even a drawing, it was a photo . Then, I enjoyed finding new, amazing artists and was awed by them. I started to log into DA more often and eventually, every day! I must say that DeviantArt has helped me to develop my style. I used to draw and learn by myself, my style was very static.
I never knew there is another art world out there. Back then, I didn’t even know what photoshop was (I thought it was some kind of traditional tool — isn’t it silly ?). When I found DeviantArt, a new world was opened up for me and I had chance to see artists around the world work. The way they mixed colours, their styles, everything — something I had only dreamed of. I started to learn how to play with new colours, met more amazing artists, learned how they did things like anatomy, made friends around the world and all of that has influenced my style today. Though I still need to learn a lot and try to every day. Drawing was just a hobby from me and now it’s like part of my life. Thanks a lot to DeviantArt and everyone who supported me from my very first step until now. You are always part of my heart.”

Hellobaby is one of the deviants I immediately think of when someone asks who are some of my favorite artists. She is very skillful with traditional art and exercises her genius well in the field. Although I adore her work, I admire her lovely heart even more. She has been so supportive of the DeviantArt community. She has given back to this community by helping many deviants throughout the years who have struggled with bills by advertising for them. She shares her traditional art skills through interviews that she has been more than happy to do! She was one of the deviants to comment back to me on a regular basis and she was very open to helping me with contests and fundraisers. I cherish her very much and I think she’s a great idol to many deviants including myself. Thanks for everything HB and I am so happy for you!”

Hellobaby is a ridiculously talented, selfless deviant. She cares a lot about her followers and friends and she supports them by sharing their commission/help needed journals whenever she can, her FAQ about her drawing process and in general her positive attitude - even with all the pageviews and comments and favs she gets daily, she’s still that caring of a person! It’s amazing. I’m in love with her art and she’s no doubt my favourite visual artist on DA: if I were to get a second tattoo I’d ask her to draw it.”
