  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've been incredibly busy the past few months (mainly with my job as a self-employed graphic designer), thus the lack of updates. I hope this will change in the future and I have more time for anthro art again! Until then, here's my convention schedule for this year:

I will attend 3 conventions this year. The first one is Elliott's Spring Gathering (May 10 - 12), which will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada this year. The location is the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, woot! I don't have any plans for other US conventions in the future, so this is the only chance to grab some prints or a sketchbook commission from me. :) More info about the con can be found here: esg.elliottsliveevents.org/

Then I will be at Confuzzled (May 30 - June 3), in Leicester, UK. This will be my first time there and I hope it'll be as awesome as people told me! :D -> www.confuzzled.org.uk/

The last con of this year will be Eurofurence (August 21 - 25), in Magdeburg, Germany. My "main convention" of this year where I will bring original artwork, prints and other stuff. -> www.eurofurence.org/
