  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    Since 2003, 11 years now, wow! :)

  2. What does your username mean?
    Nimrais is the actually the name of a mountain chain from the Middle Earth universe (Ered Nimrais, appeared in the Silmarillion) and means "White Horns". I liked the sound of the name and I love Middle Earth and Lord of the Rings, so that's why I decided on that nickname. :)

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Introvert, friendly, nature-lover.

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Right handed.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    I removed some deviations, but the oldest I have in my gallery is "Sleepless", which I still kinda like after all these years :) (shows my old, initial character design ... a dark snowleopard)
    sleepless by Nimrais

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    I love digital media (Photoshop), but the most fun media for me is acrylics on canvas. :)

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Sewing / creating costumes!

  8. What was your first favourite?
    A photo! :3  Cold sunset, Part I by Eldwin

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Anthro artwork and concept art. Generally animal themed pictures are great!

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    There are so many amazingly talented people here ... a few of my favorite artists and inspirations are: :iconbalaa: :iconbubblewolf: :iconalectorfencer: :iconchichapie: :iconkenket: :iconvantid: and so many more!

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    All of my favorite artists above! Except for Alector ... we already had the pleasure :D xD

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    I guess Tascun / TheDarkWolfen brought me here and got me in contact with anthros/furry stuff in general back then. We had a lot of fun together! x)

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    I use a Wacom Intuos 5 M with Photoshop for my digital artwork. For my traditional pictures I use various media like acrylics (Amsterdam), watercolors (Schmincke) and bamboo mixed media paper (Hahnemühle).

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    At home in my little office, surrounded by my two dogs and my boyfriend, sipping coffee and listening to some music :heart:

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    I don't have a specific memory, but more a collection of feelings and things I remember. The possibility to showcase my artwork, getting lovely feedback from fellow Deviants and even getting in contact with professionals, when I started my job as a freelance artist. DeviantArt helped me with all that :) Also, getting one of my pictures featured as a Daily Deviation when I had just started with my artwork gave me so much motivation to continue and improve!

I'm glad to see that you are coming back to here again, I thought that you left to be honest. To note on your oldest piece currently on this site, I find it fascinating to watch as an artist developes and starts out with modest begginings only to become a master later down the road.

Your oldest piece has a lot of emotion in it. It is really neat to see in contrast with your new works.
