Kiriban Award

The white dove is commonly known today as a symbol of peace and purity, but it was also used several times in the Bible. It was the bird Noah sent out of the ark that returned with an olive branch (Genesis 8:6-12), Jonah's name in the original Hebrew means 'dove', Jews who could not afford to provide a lamb for sacrifice could instead use two doves (Leviticus 1:14; 14:30; Luke 2:24), and the Holy Spirit Himself descended from heaven during Jesus' baptism in the form of a dove (Matthew 3:16).
Fun fact: doves don't have gallbladders.

DeviantArt Questionnaire

Fri Aug 7, 2015, 1:53 PM

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

9 years. Actually, tomorrow (August 8) is my anniversary and it will be 10 years. :wow: Wow time flies when you are having fun!!!

2. What does your username mean?

"emberblue" has been my username ever since I started using the internet...back when AOL was the thing. I think I started around 1999 or 2000. I chose the name because "ember" speaks of fire, which in Christian terms is symbolic of purification and burning away impurities (in my life). Fire also symbolizes life and fervency, passion, etc. A relationship with Jesus is my greatest passion in life, and "ember" sounds like a nice feminine name, so it seemed very appropriate for me. Blue is my favorite color. I am just drawn to things that are blue. The ocean, the sky, water, blue eyes, blue sparkly things, etc. So I put those two words together and voila! Creative genius. :D

3. Describe yourself in three words.


4. Are you left or right handed?

Right. Though I wish I was both. All of the lefties I've met are always really cool and creative people.

5. What was your first deviation?

Korey's Eye by Emberblue

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Traditional art (painting and drawing) is my favourite and preferred. But most of the art I create is digital (graphic design) because of my job.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Digital painting. I feel like I have a pretty good handle on traditional art and every time I try to learn something new it comes very naturally. BUT digital art is a whole different world for me. I especially would like to master digital painting or rendering.

8. What was your first favourite?

Soul by FernandoTabanera
I love surrealism. :aww:

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

I tend to favourite deviations that are eye-catching, inspiring, and of excellent quality. I like to favourite deviations that inspire me to improve my skill. The deviations that I favourite either moved me deeply in my soul, or they are the kind of quality I would like to aspire to create one day.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Very difficult question! Do I have to really just choose one? There are so many! If I had to choose just one I would say :iconaquasixio: His art inspires me to do better. And his art is creative on so many levels. Often times his digital paintings are accompanied by poetry. The paintings are kind of surreal (I love surrealism). HIs use of color and subject matter are unique. The majority of his deviations are multiple-piece projects with a very creative theme/challenge. Most of you probably are already familiar with his art and need no explanation as to why he is super awesome. I hope to be like him when I grow up. :aww:

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

My friend levite We've been running a group together for around 9 years and are good (internet) friends. A close second choice would be ArtistXero. We've been internet friends for so long, I wonder if he really exists in person. ;p

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

I've been impacted many ways over the years by many different deviants. Once in a while I will come across a deviation that moves my heart, or says something that I desperately needed to hear that day. I've had people randomly send me messages telling me that they are praying for me. :love: :aww: I'm an admin at :iconchristians: and I love people, so I do my best to help them...but a lot of the time they are the ones helping me. :heart:

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Pencil and paper, or paintbrush and birchwood.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

Anywhere. As long as I'm in a good mood and no one is talking to me so I can focus. And play my music. :music:

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

I'm going to take the easy way out and say it was the day I joined DeviantArt. ;p  Thank you :iconzappe: for telling me about this place and convincing me to join.

I make new favorite memories on a regular basis around here. :) I'm so blessed when people take the time to comment on my art, to encourage me, to reply to my journal entries. It sounds mushy. But it's true. I :heart: you.

A Letter From the People of the Cross

Vision: We want to tell the world of the great and mighty things of the Lord through media

As the world responds to the Islamic State with hatred and vengeance, there is one group that is responding differently. They are not allies with ISIS but their enemies. And they have been slain by the thousands in the hands of ISIS. ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

We worked with several Arab Christians and Middle East Refugees to get their feedback. Also had it translated by an Arab Christian from Egypt.
