Happy Birthday Deviant Art!
Also I am shallow for wanting a new birthday thingy. :< 1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been, on and off, on DA from May 2008, when I made the account for posting drawings I did of Fullmetal Alchemist :> Heh, funny, I am back to FMA right now The irony.
2. What does your username mean?
It's just my name, with an added "D" to my first name, because reasons and snobness :>.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Perfectionist and procrastinator wannabe (writer and drawer).
4. Are you left or right handed?
Right handed as can be. I should learn to draw with my left as well, in case I have a hand injury. :/
5. What was your first deviation?
I remember the actual first deviation I posted in 2008 was a drawing of Edward Elric, in skewed style, cross between the actual anime style and my 2010 style, holding a fluttering cape ??? over his shoulder.
But the first deviation in this account is this:
Entirely done with a mouse and before I knew the definition of layers in Photoshop. Yeah... It took a lot to complete, as you can imagine
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
That would have to be digital art. Close second comes pixel art and afterwards is traditional art. That's why I barely do any sketches :/
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what wo.uld it be?
I would like to master digital painting the way landscape digital artists of concept artists create their drawings. So clear and concise and it always works for them
8. What was your first favourite?
I liked it because of the colour tonality and the mostly... good background. Ok it was a desk and a book! >.>
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Digital Art because... well that's what I want to draw and I try to find the best of the best :>
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I've had many favorite artists throughout the years, from Genzoman to J-Scott Campbell to Shilin to Saimain, but my constant favorite deviant is.... drum roll because of her flawless character designs, choice of colours and crisp, lush digital painting style. Glorious!
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I would choose since she's been a very positive influence on me, and I would thank her for her hard words and bonking me over the head with my mistakes. Thank you for making me see the error of my ways. :>
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Many different people here on DA have impacted different aspects of my being as a person:
has strenghtened my sense compassion and kindness which was lacking in me before I befriended him.
taught me the value of persistence and effort, steadily pushing me to learn how to make digital art in the same vein as her
enforced my critical and analitical nature in all things art.
has showed me that even if your art is not popular, you can still feel accomplished by having done it, no matter its popularity.
taught me the nature of traditional colouring, which even if I do not practice all that often (if not at all :<) does not mean I do not apply her teachings in the other mediums I endulge in.
helped me a lot with getting my thoughts on track and aspire for my dreams of becoming a fulfilled writer!
And many many more add to this list and I am grateful for all of them.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
A laptop, a graphic tablet and much much practice.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Anywhere cosy and soft, preferably a bed or a comfortable sofa.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?>
Having met for the first time. I recall us competing in ElephantWedingo's competition, seeing her entry and falling in love with it. Afterwards I contacted her and after chatting a bit through emails, we became friends, exchanging tips and tricks, me bringing her feedback to her paintings and begging her to teach me how to paint and her putting up with me She's my little DA sister :> and I love her ^________^
