Sana is an enthusiastic member of the community who is loved by many. She joined deviantART almost 6 years ago. She's a true inspiration for anyone who wants to be more involved around deviantART. Sana received seniority status in August last year, on top of that she alpha tests for dA over at devBUG - which means she plays around with new features before Beta testers get to!
Now, on with the questions!
First off, could you give us a brief introduction of yourself?
Well first off, I'm actually Sana I'm a Photographer by morning and a Programmer by night I study Computer Science but enjoy trying out all sorts of arts. I'm a bit socially awkward at first, but pretty awesome once you get to know me I mean I've been told that I'm a good listener
How did you discover deviantART?
Through my brother.. I made my own account 2 months after he did but lurked around for a year until I finally gave in
im-not-sana is an inspirational leader within the community. Between her radiant positive attitude and the many things she does for the community, be it her helping out with devBUG or the ideas and time she dedicates to her own group TheConceptBox just to name a few, she has certainly earned a high level of admiration from me for the things she does to make this site a better place."
How has deviantART changed your life?
Well, I honestly don't think I would have improved so much as an artist if I hadn't gotten all the wonderful feedback from the community here, or been inspired by all the different art forms, tutorials and tips from other Artists. I started out as a Traditional Artist, but fell in love with all the photography after coming here.. which is still my favorite form of art. Also, I wouldn't have met all the
What is your ultimate goal as a member on deviantART?
What do you think about the deviantART community in general?
It's a little bit like high school.. we've got our $principal, our ^teachers, `class reps, popular deviants and our little cliques with all the art forms (I don't know who the Jocks would be, but the Geeks are definitely dA related ) and because of the dArama every now and then, you can see deviants and watchers sticking up for each other! It's just amazing to see how vast our community is with artists from around the world that look past the differences and are brought together to share a common interest..

What are your pet peeves on dA?
I don't have pet peeves! I'm such a patient person that doesn't get annoyed at all by dArama queens or attention hoars that spam the footer with articles about "WIN ONE POINT AND TWO LLAMAS BY FAVING THIS ARTICLE", overusing old memes OVER 9000 timez, people that go out of their way t0 tYp lYk dIs!?!?!1one1! (because it's more of an effort ) or even people who claim that they're so RANDUM ZOMG look at me! ACID DINGO SPIT! Nope, not me
What prompted your love for Conceptual Photography?
I can't quite recall what first prompted my love for it, but I generally love how the meanings behind Conceptual pieces impact a viewer. And I love how everyone has a different perception when they try to understand what's going on in the piece.. it's true when they say "A picture speaks a thousand words" -- that's how I feel for any conceptual piece I prefer to let the art speak by itself since I'm not so good with words.
Can you tell us about your group, TheConceptBox?
It's a pretty fun group thanks to the admins that are dedicated to give exposure to those that love Thinking Outside the Box! You'll find conceptual pieces from a variety of art forms from Traditional Art to Digital, Literature to Typography, Photography to Photo-Manipulations and even Pixel Art! We accept all forms of media as long as it has a clear concept We provide weekly Blog Features for Members and Conceptual Artists, Monthly Themed Contests with lots of awesome prizes, Chat Events, Feedback for our members & loads more!
She is a totally wonderful friend that is always willing to help everyone!
Sana is the one that always makes you smile, have fun, laugh, enjoy; her positivism and awesomeness at everything is the best to get inspired with! She is always supporting new artists, suggesting Daily Deviations, commenting, sharing, helping, contributing, doing the best for everyone, and the community."
Who inspires you?
I know you asked who, but music has played a great part as my inspiration. I wish I could name just one artist or band, but there's just so many so let's leave it at that! And then there's all these artists on dA that inspire me daily! For example, I always get
You're stuck on a desert island with Fella, how do you escape with him?
We would make a raft with the palm trees and tie it together with the thread used to sew Fella which he
The deviant you last spoke to will murder Professor Plum in the Observatory with the first thing you see on your left. Who is it and what was the murder weapon?
admx and he murdered Professor Plum with my blue heart shaped pillow (I wouldn't be surprised I've broken bones in a pillow fight )
To end the interview, would you like to promote something or inspire us with a quote?
For all you amateur photographers.. Don't put yourself down if you haven't got a fancy camera! I'm still using a point-and-shoot that I take around with me everywhere I go Someone once told me that it's not the camera that takes an amazing picture, it's how the photographer takes it! And I've lived by those words
