08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies!

6. What fictional character in any book/movie/show/etc can you relate to most?
...ahhh gosh this is hard :^( can i say hodor from a song of ice and fire/game of thrones because hodor

maybe nathaniel / john mandrake from the bartimaeus trilogy? however, i'm nowhere as intelligent as him, although i sometimes feel like a snotty teenager who needs other people to accomplish hard tasks for me while i just sit around and act like a jealous brat, and nathaniel is the snottiest prick protagonist i've ever read. i guess you could say that i modeled a bit of elliot from Non respexerunt's character after him because nathaniel is a horrid protagonist, as it goes. but he still makes the whole book go round.  

7. What's the website you visit most often?
deviantART, facebook, flight rising, fallen london. i don't go on tumblr that often because i already have a shit ton of tabs open.

8. What's your favorite song at the moment?
most definitely SAYA's cover of hyaku renka! it's such a lovely translated cover and the artwork that goes with it is gorgeous as heckie * U *

i also love anything from DEEMO (atlantis love, pure white, xue wu, dream, rainy memory) or CYTUS (masquerade, axiom, parousia), and OSTs are just sublime. (HetaOni OST - family) this if you care to watch /winks

9. What motivates you most?
not going to lie - anger, envy, jealousy, shame, hatred, desperation.
essentially teenage angst.

no.
this is taking me circa an hour good day

MORE QUESTIONS WHY


1. How did you join DA?

i followed my sister through everything and since she was on dA, i thought that'd be cool too.

2. What does your username have to do with you?

gracefulsunshine? it's a play on my actual name - a few friends and i came up with that while playing iPod truth and dare before we went to a CSO concert.

3. What is your current avatar of?

one of my roleplay characters.

4. How many watchers do you have, and how many do you watch?

a significant amount of people watch me - a far greater number than the amount of people on my watch list. i'd like to keep my stats private, thank you, although my watcher count can be found somewhere. 

5. Do you have more than one account?

/LAUGHS LOUDLY/
sunnie-zhango - dump | angst-lord - for commissions, dumb stuff from flight rising, and adoptables
i also have one more account floating around, but that's just to troll people.

6. Name three of your favorite artists on DA. 

:iconkelcake::iconbrilcrist::iconmano-chan: 
and then the penis envy for everyone else whom i watch.

7. What deviant(s) do you admire because of their personality?

kel(cake)! she's just such a nice person to talk to and her tumblr responses are so thoughtful and inspiring. 

8. How many deviants do you actually know in reality? Post their avatars.

:iconsocha-nyx::iconangelaxart::iconstarblisssong::iconflutebandm:

a couple more, but i'm too lazy to jot them down. you know who you are.

9. Do you comment, fave, or both?

i usually comment if i have something to say. i don't fav that often.

10. What do you typically post on deviantART?

RP shit, gifts, commissions, art trades --- stuff for other people, mainly. sometimes my original story Non respexerunt.

11. Do you participate in clubs or contests here on dA?
as few as possible, unless they can inspire me.

12. What is your most popular deviation? 


most favorites / most views

i don't get why people like predator so much but okay

Soliloquial Solitude by gracefulsunshine
most commented 

13. What's your favorite submission in your gallery?

none. /nervous laughter/ when Socha-Nyx and i were talking about picking our favorite art pieces for a feature, i had to tell her that i didn't really like any of mine.

that being said, though, which one should be my favorite?

14. What are things you wish you could draw better?

landscapes, environments, foliage, architecture, girls, anatomy, perspective, composition --- let's just say everything.

15. Do you have a premium membership?

used to.

16. How many hours a day do you spend on dA?

i try to spend less time on it now, as i tend to procrastinate looking at all my messages. /wry laugh

17. Are you a fast, slow, or medium typer?

medium-fast? I'd say aroud 70-80 WPM. even faster if i'm half asleep and need to get something written out. u w u 

i'm an even faster reader, though. 1400+ WPM, if that counts?

18. What is the most annoying thing people ask you?

where's the big red dick no actually that's a good question to ask me

there's a shitton of annoying things here. i don't know.
 
19. What is the most annoying/offending comment you've ever received?
All the "Thank you for llamas"? I'm sorry and I get that people want to thank me, but can they at least take some time to read the shit on top of my page? 

Also, c o m m e n t s l i k e t h i s and one-two word comments. I did not spend 8 hours drawing so you could comment like a total arse.

Haven't gotten the penis age envy yet from people yet, but I guess it's bound to come sooner or later. Or maybe not, since my ass is getting hauled to university this fall even though I'm not 18 yet.

20. What/Who inspires you?

Artists that I adore on dA, friends, music, angst.

21. Do you use guidelines when you draw?

Sometimes? I'll leave it at that.

22. Do you associate people on deviantART with their icons?

If I'm a constantly running, sexually-confused teenager who is one of my RP characters --- no.

23. Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?

No, because 1) I'm a wimp and 2) there's nothing for me to suggest since I can't pick which art I like. I'm really indecisive like that.

24. Everyone has considered leaving DA once or twice. Have you? Why?

A couple of times? C: I left dA for a bit and entrusted my account to Socha-Nyx so that I wouldn't have the urge to open my account and fuck myself over again a year ago when I was undergoing a buttload of pressure from an ex online friend, ACTs and AP exams. Needless to say, all the drama from that ex online friend happened to fuck over a few of my junior year grades so I had to call it quits and go off deviantArt or I wasn't going to accomplish anything. 

I seem to have at least one major fiasco every year after that, but it's nothing too much that I can't handle. I also have small urges to just pack up and leave when I see artists who steal/copy/trace/are douchebags and artists who don't deserve their fame. Don't know if anyone would miss me if I left, but I guess I'll just stay here and churn out art at the pace of a snail for right now. :^)

k-KOHAI ahh gosh how was it? i know i should probably edit it someday for content and plot, but i already planned out two more verses after it. :^(

but yeah my wordpress is basically where i dump a lot of my writing from 2013/2014 * U * around half of it is from non respexerunt and the other half are just feels drabbles from riconquista essere alskdjf

belatedly adds you to the tags
Ghurahm's avatar
It just-- it had me hooked from the beginning and your word usage is brilliant.. You portray your characters/their feelings and thoughts so well.. And don't get me started on the detail hhh

I think the plot is great ;w;

I'll be stalking you on there, even though I don't have an account--//shot//

I swear I'm in love with all of your characters-- Elliot, James, Nic(and how he wants to explore all of Damiano =w=), and Damiano-- and now that I think about it, was Damiano the one you were doing lineart for on your join me?

FFFF--WHYME
gracefulsunshine's avatar
shhh you don't need an account wwww 

i remember turning it in to my philosophy teacher and hoping he wouldn't pick up on the ship in it and then when he gave it back to me, it was just 

strewn with so many snarky urchin jokes and i laughcried so hard 

i'm thinking of adding more characters to the mix, especially for verses 2 and 3! (why is it that the only title i don't have right now is for verse 1 wth) cos plotline and complexity haha [i think i posted summaries of them both in the NR folder here and the masterlist over on wordpress too, along with more NR works in the artworks page] 


elliot and james send you their love too if they're not too busy trying to kill each other www

nic's actually Xamyish's character! he's practically on the opposite end of the spectrum compared to dami :^la 

HAHHAHA YEEE THAT WAS DAMI THAT I WAS LINING DURING THE JOIN.ME he's my oldest character so i've grown quite a bit with him throughout the years ^^'' will probably host another one as soon and slap him onto my character sheet as i get this contest entry out of the way ww

Well sorry for the "Sankyu for the llama" then xD ^^;
The cases in which i receive llamas from people with Da accounts that i've never seen, i normally don't read their front pages since i suppose that they didn't see my page (let's be honest, what's to see? xD) and that they just sent the llama to get more pageviews and afterwards more watchers/comments. Let's face it..that's actually a really smart idea o:
But when i actually add them on those "watch things" (dunno how to put it better .-.) i do read their pages and see their art.
And you're really good, so you shouldn't think any less of your art.

And a douchebag? xDD nheee.. a bit xD but i really don't care, cause i'm pretty much laughing at some of your answers xD

(oh and why i'm even comment and excusing myself? i'm bored right now, so why not? i've nothing to do eitherways. Besides you sound like a cool person)
aaand i probably sound so wierd right now or one of those wtf  people .-. ----> i'll just shut up now
gracefulsunshine's avatar
naww it's fine C: smh for all the people who ignore the shit i say though. but thank you V///V i usually tend to because my aesthetics is way up there and my skill level is way down under, which results in quite a big difference in how i view things.

:^) at least you're getting laughs out of this! i spent part of my time watching a walkthrough of this xbox game and kept getting motion sickness because the camera was turning so much so i took it out on this journal. i usually try not to sound like one, but /welp/ 

thanks for commenting! wasn't sure if anyone would read this either way. and thank you - oh gosh am i a cool person maybe that's a perk of going to college

KaraFooxHobbyist Traditional Artist
I see... o: Well, it is rather commum for artists understimate themselves  and to think that what they did is not enough and that there are a few things they could improve. I higly respect those thoughts, since it shows that each time they want to improve more and more.
And just for you know, you have works that are just WOW O.O and if you haven't lost watchers, i think that means that they think the same as i do, so instead thinking too much of what you could have done, it's better to think of what you could do next c:


Haha, yeah well... my net's being a bitch right now so i know that feel xD But i just normally start throwing each pen i find around the house xD (so much for the healthy mind or whtvr.. .-. xD ) Meow :3  


No problem ^^ haha xD who knows? jk =P (Razz) 
gracefulsunshine's avatar
i think part of that comes from staring at the whole process? the artist has a thing of how the artwork should look and spending hours doing that kind of jades the whole look for them, in comparison to the audience, whom all get to look at the artwork for the first time when it is uploaded. 

C: thank you so much - i'm glad to hear that! part of the struggle is worrying about how everything will be executed and being paranoid that it won't go through like one hopes. 

o 3 o whatever works for you ayy
