1. What are you on dA for?
To get feedback on my work, to mingle with other artists and to gain inspiration.
2. Who is your favorite dA member and why?
Now that's a tricky question... I admire all of my friends on dA, but in particular these four: =ToaAkatsuki, ~Songfisher, ~Talking-Pinata and ~JDLA. They have original styles, and put a great amount of effort and personality into their work, which is what I like to see in art. They're also great to chat with, in both a deep and a light-hearted way.
3. Tell us a bit about yourself!
My preferred style of writing is poetry. I love language(s) (my favourite being German) and literature. I'm always happy to have a literary rant. I like nothing better than a cup of tea and a sit down.
4. Why did you join *Critique-It?
I was hoping to find some interesting pieces to get my teeth into, and to hopefully gain some more ideas on critiquing a piece.
5. What is your favorite piece from your gallery? Why do you like it so much?
Mmm... I'm not entirely sure. I mean, I have a certain amount of attachment with each of my poems, but I'd say probably one of my best was 'A Different Way of Thinking', because, for me, it put a new spin on an old idea. It also had elements of my latest philosophical craze, existentialism. I like the tone of it, too. But I'm generally pleased with the poems I submitted around that time - they're my best so far, I think.
6. Do you give critique? Why or why not?
When I have time, I love to. Especially on a piece that inspires me, or was particularly interesting. My preferred aim in critique is to give positive feedback, detailing the most interesting or well-written aspects of the poem (that even a naturally gifted poet may not have noticed, having done it subconsciously). I analysing literaure anyway, and plus I like to think that the writer's getting something back from their readers.
We hope you enjoyed this interview. Please spend a few moments browsing ~Sound-of-Ink gallery!
