...Because I wanted to do this for years, and now I' ill enough to take the time. XD
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Around 10 years by now. (I knew this place before, but then again, I'm always slow, scared and lazy with joining new places. Also I used to be around on Elfwood and Renderosity back then ^^)
What does your username mean?
It's simply two Greek letters. Nothing that spectacular. It's a Doctor Who reference actually – A Time Lord academy name. XD (Nerd 4 life! )
Describe yourself in three words.
Noodle Potato Strawberry
(I really don't know what to answer here, because I'd describe myself with music usually.
Are you left or right handed?
Right-handed but I try to train my left hand too.
What was your first deviation?
This artistic 'masterpiece', featuring 's, mine, and another friend's OCs for the movie 'The Abyss' (Which probably no one will remember these days. ) It was drawn in 2002 (So, forgive me the crappy look XD), and uploaded on my first day here in 2005.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Humorous and cartoon-y things. I'm a licker for positive, happy and sweet stuff – even if it's referring to dark and violent universes, which does happen, since I do mostly fan-art. I think the picture above (As well as my silly, (hopefully) cute Half-Life cartoons) pretty much explain what I mean.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I think I'd either love to master 'classic cartoon' style (like in an average Disney movie) or be better at drawing/colouring hair. Hair has always been my weakness ever since I remember – A wonder not all of my characters end up being baldies XD
What was your first favourite?
I'm not sure about the very first one, since the artist stashed it by now
(Pleeeeeeeeease, people, stop stashing your beautiful stuff!!! Believe me if I say, there's no need to hide your stuff – favs and comments certainly prove it. )
The first visible deviation however is:
A cutified adorable little Nightcrawler. (Yes, some may remember I joined dA mostly for X-Men and Star Trek fan-art, I had no idea that I just scratched the surface here... XD)
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Definitely fan-art. It's mostly either cute stuff like chibis, OCs or scenery porn – Sometimes even all three factors in one picture, and I honestly wish there was more like it out there. Some good examples of my hunting preferences would be:
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I honestly think this is impossible to answer. Over the last years I came to watch more than 900 people – each of them for their very own special reasons. Some (but not all!) highlights would be:
An artist drawing incredibly cute and quirky stuff. She's also a wonderful writer.
A cartoonist and fan-artist wit many adorable works, cute OCs and a great sense of humour.
A great artist who does not only make brilliant comics but also outstanding own concepts and creature designs.
A great drawing artist of various styles, and also a magnificent and incredibly loveable person.
A really funny and talented cartoonist – Once again with many styles and things to offer.
An amazing writer, drawer, roleplayer, concept artist, world builder and also – a wonderful person no one should miss!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Not sure how to answer this. I'm not a person that holds much interest in physically meeting someone. If I get to skype to the people I like, that's more than enough and my universe is absolutely perfect.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Several have. Remember, I've been around for quite some time,. And I came to meet a bunch of really cool cute and interesting people. Ever since I joined I met so many lovely, nice and positive guys, guys like , , , , , the people I introduced in the last question, and many, MANY more. People that manage to cheer me up with their art, but also encourage me to improve my own works, and do what I like without being too scared to show it. Even if I don't find the time to be much online recently and talk to them, all of those really matter to me and I'm really glad that I had the honour to meet them
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Real pencil and paper actually. Besides all you can do on a computer, I still love to create art with my very own hands, drabble, erase and have the smell of real paper around me. It's probably also a bit of a habit of mine, since many of my drabbles and drawing are made on my way to work/way home when sitting in a train and having nothing better to so. ^^
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I don't have a special place I'd say. It's useful if I'm physically alone and have no one look over my shoulder. Talking to people over Skype or Teamspeak though is quite fine. The best things for me to boost and canalize creativity are not a place but people: People I talk to and get inspired from. And then there's also music. Music makes me come up with scenarios and faces I want to put on paper.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬(ஜ۩۞۩ஜ)▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
I think my favourite 'memory' would be all the little events with friends that led into collaborations, art-trades, roleplays or group calls. I'm really happy if I can find people of common interest (Which admittedly seem to be rare), and therefor whenever I can spend time with lovely people, all of us doing a thing we mutually love, everything's fine.
You're a genius. You're stone cold brilliant, you are, I swear, you really are.
But you could be so much more. You could be beautiful.
With a mind like that, we could travel the stars. It would be my honour.
Because you don't need to own the universe, just see it.
Have the privilege of seeing the whole of time and space.
That's ownership enough.
