I've been a very bad little deviant in the last month.  Haven't kept up with my inbox and am going to have to mass-delete messages.  I'm very sorry about that!  Since I will probably accidentally delete people's questions, I thought it might be nice to hold a Q&A in this journal.  

Feel free to ask me anything, art-related or not.  Serious or not.  Under one condition:  If you ask me a question, I get to ask you one too!  :)  Sharing is only fair!  

I won't give out safety-related things like my full name, address, or telephone number.  But I'll try to be open and answer everything honestly.  EDIT:  Oh, and feel free to ask more than one.

If this doesn't turn out to be too painful, would you be interested in (extremely) occasional Q&A journals like this in the future?

What is your opinion on love?

What's most important to you in a relationship?

Hmm... this one's probably already asked, but where do you get your inspiration from?

1. Besides Kenshin, what is your favorite anime?

2. What, in your opinion, is the coolest way to die?
hakubaikou's avatar
Question for you: Who would be your choice of an actor to play Gambit in a live action film?
AlloraLang's avatar
AlloraLangStudent Artisan Crafter
I dunno. I think the one they chose is pretty cute.
hakubaikou's avatar
Yeah, I'd agree. I haven't seen him in anything though. I hope he can act. :p
hakubaikou's avatar
1. Fullmetal Alchemist, Last Exile, Gungrave, Escaflowne, Samurai Champloo, Trigun, and some others.

2. I can't answer that. I don't think dying is cool in any way. :( To grow old and go peacefully in one's sleep seems the least painful to me, but I wouldn't call it cool.

KYA!!! YOU LIKE SAMURAI CHAMPLOO?!?!?! *kisses your feet*
Adilande's avatar
Well, you said they could be silly, so...

If it were possible and non-detrimental to your health, would you eat a string of Christmas lights and what would they taste like?

(I can't believe I'm actually asking this.)
hakubaikou's avatar
No, I wouldn't, because I don't imagine they'd taste very good. :puke: I 'd make an exception, however, if I could swallow them hold and have them light up in my belly so that I had a pretty torso with glowing colors. That might be fun. Sorta. :p


Question for you: What's the weirdest thing you ever ate?
Adilande's avatar
Oh ee gads, you had to pick that. When my cousin and I were... oh, eight or so... we got up to no good in the kitchen. For whatever reason, we were unsupervised, so we started mixing random things in a bowl. A short list of what I can REMEMBER being in there follows:

-2 kinds of Karo corn syrup
-Vinegar
-Cocoa Powder
-Coffee Grounds
-Flour
-Sugar
-Salt and Pepper
-Pickles

... sufficed to say, I cannot describe the taste; even the memory of it makes me gag today, a decade or so later.

For less disgusting and more "weird," I'd probably have to say blood sausage.

New question! Why do you think Asians invented chopsticks instead of silverware like most western countries?
hakubaikou's avatar
:lol: That concoction sounds awful! :puke:


I have no idea. If I had to make a guess, I'd say that they didn't want their silverware to be shaped like weapons. Knives and forks hint too much at violence, perhaps? Maybe they don't like stabbing their food? (It's considered rude to stab food with chopsticks.)

I don't know. :p
Adilande's avatar
Hey hey! You didn't ask one back! I gots a freebie, whoot.

I don't know about the violence notion, considering Japan and China tried to invade each other several times... If I remember right, stabbing food with chopsticks is something done at a funeral, which is why it's considered rude in other settings... don't know if it would have any affect on their opinion of silverware... XD

Which is better--blue polka dots or orange stripes?
hakubaikou's avatar
Depends on what the background color is. :p Although I generally like blue better.


I'm probably not going to ask people any subsequent questions after my first one. It's too hard thinking up new things to ask. ^_^
Adilande's avatar
Oh ho ho! So I could have a whole BUNCH of freebies.

But no, I won't, I'll lay off the silliness now. XD You have better things to do with your time.

When you were younger, did you envision yourself to be an artist when you grew up, or did you want to work in a different occupation? Be specific and name which ones you were interested in if you did. :)
hakubaikou's avatar
Yes, I did imagine being an artist, but I didn't really take it seriously. I just thought of it for fun, like I'd imagined myself as an astronaut or super spy or jedi, you know? Same thing. It wasn't a serious consideration.

When I was a kid, I wanted to do special effects for films. I didn't have any specific field within special effects that I was interested. I just wanted to have anything at all possible to do with it. That's pretty much been my dream job since I was around 10 or so.

I'd also briefly entertained the idea of being a concert pianist. But I didn't feel like practicing 6+ hours a day, so that dream faded pretty quickly.

When I got older, I did start thinking about art more. But it really wasn't until a few years ago (after getting encouragement from fellow DA artists) when I started really considering art seriously.


My turn: Your favorite artists outside of DA?
MeliHitchcock's avatar
MeliHitchcockProfessional Digital Artist
Hard question because so many artists that I really admire ARE here at DA. :XD: I would say that John Howe, Frezetta, and Brom.
hakubaikou's avatar
Nice list though! :)
