As I've been tagged by :iconffey: here, I'll do my best to answer her questions. :-)

1. You must post these rules (and/or edit them to your liking)
2. Answer the 9 questions the tagger gave you and then invent 9 of your own
3. You must legitimately tag 9 people 
4. Tagbacks are allowed!
5. You must make a journal entry

1. what is your favorite song right now and what was it in the past? (youtube links appreciated)
I don't know about right know, but these were among my favourites fairly recently:



2. what is the meaning of life?
42. :D (Big Grin) But besides that, I suppose it is to live. Or, more precisely, to live well. :-) (What does that mean? That's another question...)

3. what plants do you have at home? what do they think about you?
Mostly cacti and some devil's ivy (Scindapsus). Others starved to death. Which should also answer the question what they most likely think about me. (But I like plants and flowers, I just sometimes forget about them;-))

4. imagine you know nothing about earth and universe and you look up at night and see the stars, what would you think? what would you think about the moon and it's changes?
That these are the most beautiful jewels I've ever seen; perhaps I would desire to see one fallen down on earth. The moon would most likely seem very mysterious, with its phases, ever changing and returning. But maybe I would also find it useful for measuring time.

5. what is the most epic book you have ever read?
Lord of the Rings, definitely.

6. what are the three most meaningful pictures for you from your favorites?
That's so difficult to tell, there are so many of them. But if I choose just from among the most recent ones, then perhaps these:
Steward of Gondor by aegeri Turgon and Idril by Mysilvergreen The King of the Golden Hall by peet
(Apparently I like Tolkien and I like blondes =D )

7. imagine you have the skills you wish you had and you don't have to worry about money, what would you create?
A great, beautiful, richly decorated book (or more books) which would be some kind of cross between a medieval illuminated manuscript and a modern graphic novel. Either as an adaptation of Tolkien or as my own story. w00t! 

8. what is your favorite idea/thought/problem/question?
That's a difficult one. hmm Perhaps recently I think about the problem how to reconcile imagination, fantasy, artistic creativity, the desire to make beautiful art with the need to be "realistic" and "practical" about life, in other words how to create art that is at the same time beautiful, imaginative, meaningful and relevant.

9. what kind of person would you like to be?
The one I'm supposed to be. Which is quite a hard work most of the time...

Questions:

1. Which artists (outside of dA) do you think have influenced you the most?
2. And which artists here on dA?
3. What is currently your favourite piece from your own gallery, or which one you are most proud of?
4. What is your favourite colour combination when creating your own art?
5. What is your favourite architectural style? And some particular example?
6. Which fictional character you have not yet depicted, but you would like to?
7. What real-life place and what fictional place would you like to visit?
8. If you could change one thing in history, what would it be?
9. What is your favourite mythological creature?

Sorry for my super late reply, I have been working a lot lately. You gave really interesting answers to your questions :)

1. John Bauer and Alphonse Mucha

2. Ooh, that's hard. I really like :iconyuumei:, but I don't think her style has influenced mine. I really like :iconliigaklavina: too. Her style is closer to mine

3. This one probably. It took a long time and I'm happy with the result nordiclynx.deviantart.com/art/…

4. I like both monocromatic and colourful things ;)

5. Art nouveau/ jugend for sure. I love the natural and floral elements.

6. Maybe Goldberry

7. New Zealand! And Middle Earth and Hogwarts

8. Wars

9. Old-fashiones small fairies with wings probably

Thnks, no problem, I'm glad you found the time for it. :-)
2. Oh yes, LiigaKlavina is gorgeous, I've been inspired by her too. :-)
3. That's a really beautiful portrait, I love all the details in it.
5. I love that style too.
6. Looking forward to see her! ;-)

Great! Well, I tend to be quite gentle, so I didn't want to ask exceedingly tough questions. ;-)

jé, telegraph road se mi libi. tolkien ensemble me bohuzel nikdy moc neoslovil, ale skoda ze si saruman ve filmu nezazpival, treba aspon k titulkum :D
s kytkama jsem na tom podobne, zbyly mi same odolne, mezi nimi vede dracena, ktera prezila pet let v temne mistnosti zalevana jednou za mesic
7. takova kniha by byla super, s tvymi ornamenty a barvami, doufam, ze se chystas brzy zacit!
8. nevim, co bych k tomu rekla. need to be "realistic" and "practical" about life - nic takoveho vubec nepocituju, spis pravy opak :D

Mně se na Tolkien Ensemble líbí, jak jsou ty jejich písničky rozmanité a jak dokáží podle mě skvěle vystihnout náladu každé z nich, veselé popěvky hobitů nebo Toma Bombadila, melancholické zpěvy elfů, epické písně o dávných hrdinech, bojové volání Rohirů, entské húm-hom, prostě jak je to rozmanité, ale všechno to podle mě hrozně dobře doplňuje ten příběh. Ale Christopher Lee je samozřejmě nejlepší.

no, otázka zněla "imagine you have the skills you wish you had and you don't have to worry about money", což tak zatím nevypadá... :P Ale někdy bych něco takového rád zkusil. :-)

Much obliged my friend, didn't realise you liked this one quite so much (though you did write a super nice, long comment so double-thanks!) :highfive:

Yes, I do like it, and I especially find it meaningful (as was the question asked). So when I wanted to choose some pictures from my recently added favourites, it was quite I had to include this one. :-)

Díky za zájem, ale já na takovéhle věci moc nejsem... Nějak nemám moc v lásce zveřejňování příliš mnoho informací o vlastní osobě, když nemůžu ohlídat, kdo všechno si to přečte. :) Takže na otázky ti ráda odpovím do zprávy, pokud o to stojíš, ale jinak se moc omlouvám. ;)

V pohodě, pro to mám naprosto pochopení, taky jsem na to nikdy až tak moc nebyl, ale tentokrát když jsem byl do toho zatáhnut, tak jsem zrovna měl docela náladu zkusit si jednou něco takového vyplnit. :-) A vlastně jsem víc váhal, jestli vůbec taggovat někoho dalšího (nerad se s něčím vnucuju), nebo to udělat jen tak pro sebe. Nakonec jsem pár lidí vybral, protože zvítězila zvědavost, jestli na to někdo zareaguje. ;) Ale nijak mi nevadí, když ne.

Nemusíš se omouvat, nic se nestalo. :) Jen jsem nechtěla, aby sis to třeba vyložil nějak špatně, když se mi do toho nechce. Tady ty věci nemám moc ráda a taky jsem ochotná do toho vstoupit jen velmi zřídka, když mám extrémně dobrou a sdílnou náladu. Dokud toho nekoluje moc, tak mi to zase až tak nevadí. Tady už mě na to samé tahala jedna kamarádka a taky bohužel nepořídila. :D Tak doufám, že se ti někdo jiný ozve s odpověďma. :)

Mimochodem, mám celkem rád i českou verzi od Roberta Křesťana, ale originál je originál. :-)

I had to smile at your answer to what you would create, because I've wished to do a handwritten, illustrated version of Tolkiens works ever since I read about Harff and his Silmarillion Book (but I dont have the skill/time/money yet ><) Do you know about it?

Wow, that is impressive, I haven't heard about it before, thanks for sharing the link! :-) But I've read about another interesting project of somewhat similar sort: Elven manuscripts in Tengwar: www.parmaeldalieva.com/
