Kay, damphy, etc. I am passionate about fandom and love everything from classic literature to comic books to Pokemon, and have been described as 'quirky' on more than one occasion. Yes, my hair really is purple, and has been for roughly eight years now.

I have dipped my toe into various industry waters, including reality TV and comic books, and am a two time San Diego Comic-Con panelist. I became a volunteer for deviantART in 2004, and did everything from moderating chat rooms to directing galleries. In 2006, I officially joined core staff as a member of CEA. I always enjoy a challenge and am often found geeking out over various shows, movies, books and games. I love art and artists and genuinely adore all the amazing and sometimes odd creations my job exposes me to on a daily basis.

Be good to each other!

Nintendo scored points with fans who have been longing for more diversity and representation in games by confirming that newest title in their Fire Emblem series will allow for same-sex relationships.
While this announcement has made headlines, Fire Emblem will not be the first time that Nintendo has allowed players the option of a same-sex union.
In 2005, the Bokujō Monogatari series, Harvest Moon to English s

While Atari may have defined a generation of gamers, Nintendo has both ushered in and held the hearts of several generations with their unique combination of affordable consoles and memorable characters. Mario may have been born a supporting character in Donkey Kong, but he has climbed the ladder, or perhaps slid up the pipe, to become not only Nintendo’s mascot, but one of the most recognizable characters across the globe.

Few phrases are more closely associated with the Game of Thrones fandom than this one. We know that winters in Game of Thrones are long, often lasting several years. It is also difficult for people in that world to predict when the seasons will change, the Citadel even has a special, rare breed of white raven they send out to deliver the news of the changing season. While this may just be the way that the seasons in the world of Game of Thrones

Harvest Moon
“Harvest Moon” is known in Japan as Bokujō Monogatari.
In a day and age when critics are openly decrying violence in video games, one game in particular is finding great success without the element of fighting or any kind of violence. Harvest Moon first premiered in Japan in 1996, and has grown into a thriving franchise with more than 20 games in the Harvest Moon seri

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`damphyr is one of those people who form an essential building-block of any community and we're especially grateful to have her in ours. Helpful to new deviants and old alike, she goes out of her way to find great art not only to highlight in her journal but also to suggest countless Daily Deviations to be put up as well. She's always ready with constructive criticism of the highest quality. While others moan about deviation violations, she does her deviant duty and reports them. Like any other great artist, she's never afraid to try new things for the sake of her art. For being not only a wonderful deviant but a wonderful artist as well, we recognize damphyr with our award for Deviousness for October 2004.

The New Starter Pokemon!

Journal Entry: Tue May 10, 2016, 1:03 PM
I've previously gone on at length about the power and appeal of Pokémon, but today I am left feeling like words fall short in the face of art. The starters for the new games, Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon were revealed just a few short hours ago, and the outpouring and quality of fanart which is already flooding the Internet is simply amazing! Check out this small collection of some of my favorite fan art featuring the new starting three. Do you have a favorite piece featuring the new Pokémon which is not not included here? Please link it in the comments! :la:
