DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Sun May 1, 2016, 9:19 AM


How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Deviant Since August 2012, still relatively new by dA standards, but hey, I'm still young

What does your username mean?

It's pretty self explanatory, however, I didn't come up with it. I was at a new years eve party in 2013 with a friend and we were discussing ideas for usernames and she suggested that one you see now. I remember having caviar that night and binging on the clam chowder. 

Describe yourself in three words.

Honest, stubborn, strong willed

Are you left or right handed?

Right handed, otherwise known as boring

What was your first deviation?

Crap, no, WHY?
roasting weenies with hugo by FireNationPhoenixthis crappy sketch of the annoying gargoyle from HoND. I loath this character and I am still not sure why I even uploaded this shitty thing. I did get much better over the years, but when I first came, my "art" was crap. 

What is your favorite type of art to create?

I love to write poetry and short stories, I'm actually majoring in english and hope to get a masters in writing. I also love to doodle and draw pencil and charcoal art. I also do lots of animal themed art and even some surreal work here and there. Yes, I draw a lot of fanart, I know, I'm going to draw a crap ton of fanart this summer, but I promise you guys, I will bring in more variety in the winter time when I'm in my art classes. I do draw a lot of fanart, yes, I understand it gets a bit old. 
Here's a sample, this is the big favorite, a collab I did with my friend Adrian  Away They Go: Collab by FireNationPhoenix

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

I'd love to learn to do digital on my own, but photoshop is the work of the antichrist.  Elmo en llamas by Shumii-chan

What was your first favourite?

NightConfrontation by DryBonesRebornthis lovely thing by the adorable DryBonesReborn. Still a marvel geek.

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

Ok, you have been warned, I apologize for this and I'm sure a lot of you are going to go to my page like an angry mob. I know this is very hypocritical of me and I am sure certain unwanted guests will show up on my page after saying this as well, yes, I know it's you guys...ok, yes, I fave a shit tone of fanart(sighs) now you can come and attack me, I'm unarmed. 

Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?

The lovely and adorable Johanne Matte aka Rufftoon. yeah, she draws a lot of fanart, but it's downright awesome fanart, and she even writes and illustrates her own comics and creates her own characters. She is very witty and clever with her artwork and pokes fun at just about anything, especially her muse, the unfortunate Admiral Zhao. Please do check her out, she's a real inspiration. 
20 Years by rufftoon
one of her more clever fanart pieces 

Out of all my really close friends, it has to be MissLadyGrim. She is the one who introduced me to deviantart and it's because of her that I've kept going, even during difficult times on dA. There will always be stressful moments but she helps me get through my anxiety and has been a dear friend. Her work is very charming and fun and her style is adorable. Please go check her out if you have not already. 
Possible New Grim Outfit by Gyzmo-Grimher latest design for her mascot character Grim, adorable as always :hug:

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

If I could meet anyone, hmm? defiantly Ghoul-Kin. Adrian is one of my best friends and is a dream to work with. We always come up with really fun pieces together and meeting Adrian in person would be lots of fun. 
<da:thumb id="604274036"/>one of their cutest pieces, what can I say, I love animals. 

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Well, there was a time when I was having trouble getting back on my feet after a huge fiasco with a manager that left me with practically nothing. Most groups in the fandom I was in were dead and the only one truly live was the one I fought with the manager over(Shitty thing I did that never should have happened, I know). I had no way to distribute my work and I had lost much of my inspiration as my work was at best, mediocre. I was so angry and frustrated at the world. There was no way that I was ever going to get on the good side of those managers, there was no way for me to get my hard work out there, I had decided to give up at that point. Then I met Spirit-of-the-Fire aka Ellen. I had a long talk with her about my situation and she told me to look for a new angle and work my way around the problem. I decided to change my art style and instead of work by myself, work with others together to create beautiful artwork. I also began applying for manager positions at various groups to get them more active and now, my work is more popular than it's ever been. I still have a lot to learn, but thanks Ellen for helping me get back on my feet and beyond. 
here is one of my favorites by Spirit. has a mysterious feel to it. 

What are your preferred tools to create art?

My brain and a pencil. That dartboard I put various pictures on that helps me blow off steam. 

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

I usually get my best ideas when I'm resting on my bed in my room. Quiet time helps me to concentrate and think. 

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Christmas eve 2014. I was staying at our cabin up in Breckenridge with my friend Caleb and we watched the Korra finale together when dA exploded in Korrasami fanart, ah the memories. 

Ok, that's a little bit about me, lil ol me, THE ALL POWERFUL GENIE(ok jk). Now that I'm done sharing my spiel, I'm going to go study for my finals. 

All in all, this is really not about me, it's about all of you, all my wonderful friends whom some I consider to be extended family. I did not post this to brag about myself or talk about me me me, this is a post about you and how you have made dA so special for me. I'm so touched to call you all my friends and if you were not mentioned in this journal, well, I'm mentioning you now because you are all so special to me. I could have made this completely about myself, but I wanted to talk about all of you because each of you has something to offer the world. I'm telling you right now, you are all amazing, and whoever cannot see that might as well have no taste, you guys are way more awesome than I ever will be and I want to strive to be a better person. You all mean so much to me and I wish I could give you more. Here's to infinity and beyond :hug:

As always, like, comment, say hi, and thank you for plugging through this. 

Phoenix out ;)
