Journal Entry: Sat Aug 1, 2015, 7:15 AM

Name: Ashley Brooke
Age: A lady never tells her age ;)
Location: East Coast, U.S
Artist Type: Photographer
Music: My range of music goes from "Hey you gotta listen to this to pleasedontjudgeme"
Movie: Across the Universe, Scott Pilgrim, Guardians of the Galaxy, Charlie Bartlet, most musicals. Oh.. Was I only supposed to name one? Not possible :D
Years on DeviantArt: A little over 11 years :cake:

Please highlight your time with DeviantArt:
My time on DEviant Art has been mostly amazing. I've made a great amount of friends on here, met many many talented artists, and I'm always looking to do more. At the moment I run 3 of my own groups and help mod a few other ones. You can mostly find me on dAmn though. The chats are my FAVORITE part of DA and I really wish more people knew about them. Why are they so great? Well
1. The people you meet and
2. It's a fantastic way to share your works with other deviants live.

There are always weekly events going on in a few of the rooms. Critique nights or games, etc. It's just the place to be if you're an active artist looking to mingle with other artists :) I'm also always around browsing new arts, setting up weekly features ( which I'm thinking about doing MORE :faint: ) greeting the new people of DA, Socializing with friends, Harassing people ( in a good way, I promise :eyes: ) and just overall enjoying the site.

My Groups:

iPhotograph A Photography group that is based in a chatroom on dAmn. We host critique nights a few times a week and run PhotoFriday. We are here to help you improve on your photography and answer any questions you may have with cameras. So stop by the iPhotograph Chatroom and say hello :heart: In the next couple months we'll be adding major changes to the chat room (more interactive stuff for members) and we'll also be starting up a few things on the iPhotograph page. (contests, games, etc)

photohunt A fun Photography game! The task is you will be given a word and you have 20 minutes to go shoot it and post it in the Photohunt Chat Best photo wins! I dare you guys to come play just ONE game. You will be hooked. At the moment we are looking to get this place back up and active as it once was :camera:

DudeLetsDiet A group for people looking to lose weight, gain weight or get fit. We will help you and each other to reach your goals :la: We all know how much of a struggle it is to try and do things on your own. Especially trying to lose weight. This group was made for people to have a place to go when they are seeking help with motivation or just want to chat about their experiences and motivate others!

I would also like to talk about a couple other groups/chats that I help with.

DAWelcomeWagon was created by Erzsabet and the main goal for this group is to help out new people on the site. The group page is full of information to get them started. There is also the #welcome room on dAmn and this allows new deviants to pop in and ask questions in a friendly environment. I'm pretty heavily involved in this because I remember being new and feeling pretty lost and there is nothing better than having a friendly deviant take you under their wing and show you the ropes. So what I do is greet all the new deviants inviting them to the group/chat and they can swing by if they need any help :)

Next is the chatroom #ThumbHub created by JenFruzz and deviant-garde - I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this room is. It has a bot that pulls up your art in the chat AS THUMBS. You can pull up your popular art, your new art, random art, certain folders, you can share other peoples art, you can share GROUPS art. :faint: It's just seriously one of the best chats on dAmn if you're looking to share your work or see other peoples work. It's still only about a month old but I know for a fact that once more people know about it? It will be huge :dummy: I highly recomend going to check it out :eager:

I almost forgot to also promote the upcoming devmeet happening in Boston! Check out EastCoastDA. If you're in the East Coast area on August 15th at 1pm EST, JenFruzz and I are hosting a devmeet at the Boston Aquarium! We'd love to see your faces :love: But there IS a small fee.... You must bring me a bag of gummybears :gummybear::gummybear: :gummybear: Just kidding... maybe :shifty:

I may have got a bit carried away. I could seriously keep talking about the stuff I'm involved in on DeviantArt but I won't continue to bore you :bored: How many of you are even still reading my babble? If you are. You rock :love: Anyways. Heres the rest of the interview

When you joined DeviantART, what was your goal as an artist?
Honestly my dad kind of made me sign up so I had somewhere to share my art. And when I'd get comments on the stuff I submitted it got me excited to keep making art and submitting. My next goal was then to be as active in the community as possible. Share my work, Browse new work, browse old work, mingle with other photographers, mingle with other artists, ETC I was now here to learn from others :heart:

What medium(s) do you work with? Favorite? I am strictly a photographer. I can't draw to save my life. (No really. Even my stick men come out looking weird :( )
What medium(s) do you work with? Favorite?
I'm a traditional artist , I like to draw eyes ..realistic ...I love to paint, photomanipulate and work with digital mediums.

Do you feel that you've achieved that goal, or are you still working on it? elaborate.
I think I've grown as a photographer in a sense that I've learned new tricks, how to edit, etc but I still have LOTS and LOTS to learn and now that I have the perfect community to be part of I know I can get help with my learning process :)

Have you ever collaborated on DeviantART?
I have not. I'm not sure how I'd do that as a photographer but I'd defintely be interested in something :)

How long have you been an artist for, and what got you into it? What's your process like? How much time do you spend creating?
How much time do you spend creating? Oh boy. This question. LEt me think.... It goes way way WAY back to be honest. I believe it started in 3rd grade. I was always that kid who had the desposible camera on field trips. ALWAYS. I loved taking pictures around me. My dad is also a photographer so I guess that's probably where it came from :)

My process... hmm. I guess I dont really have one. I just shoot :camera: I can go out for hours with just me and the camera. Though I suppose when I do client shoots I have a slight process but that's just setting up the people to get the shot I want :)

What/who's your biggest influencer?
There are so many artists on this site that I'd LOVE to be at their level. A few examples IsacGoulart Kendra-Paige A2Matos realityDream thrumyeye ETC the list could go on and on but these are the ones that stick out in my head :heart:

What is in the works right now? What can we expect from you in the future? Well right now I mainly have been doing client shoots which I rarely add to my Deviant Art page. But I'll be on vacation soon! (12 days :eager: ) and I plan on doing a lot of shooting so you'll see a lot of nature stuff from me in the next month or so :aww:
