Pushka Ben

Doodling Music IT Guy~

YouTube Channel -


  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    I've been on dA for one decade, 1 year, 1 month and lucky-13 days
    Holy guacamole - that is some time - I feel like it has been like 33 years - my life's been flip-turned up-side-down so much - and when I read decade old comments - I have to cringe and smile at how happy and crazy and bursting with emotion I was~

  2. What does your username mean?
    I was at a year 9 camp in high school (2003) – and I was chatting with some friends near the mess-hall, there was a tree to my right, and we were in a circle-ish/ walking around aimlessly. We were talking about games or something – and one friend described this game, where there’s a can, and people hide and one person tries to spot the others, and call their names and then they are “out” and if someone kicks the can, they are all free – and I was like: “yea, Pushka!~” – and in return I received blank stares, and I went on that it was a game we played with friends at my parent’s Polish home church and that’s what we called it. They laughed and were most amused by my crazy Polish re-naming of things – and they started calling me Pushka after that (which at first was strange because it’s like being nick-named “hide-and-seek” or something… but I rolled with it.) After a while I accepted Pushka as my identity, and having a super common 3-letter-name with multiple of them in my class, I responded more instantly to Pushka, and felt all warm and fuzzy inside when people would call me it in real life through school, uni and beyond ~ and of course, growing up with the dawn of the internet I was always taught to never reveal my dox online, so it became my complete and utter online alias.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Envisioning, Introspective, Open.

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Right handed - which I hear means I will live longer... is that because the world is made for right-handed people? Well I have some things which aren't aligned to the norm - so it's not all smooth sailing - but calm oceans are boring anyway~

  5. What was your first deviation?
    I think I have deleted it - 3 months into dA without anything? seems off.. also I had been doodling before this - but whatever - this is 1st listed - in scraps. It was for a Zelda Halloween contest (I couldn't spell halloween at the time..) - Hmm ~ showing dressing up like a woman as being something shameful - good one young pushka....  :iconwthplz:

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    I love making YouTube videos (though it's so much effort - I would like to make them at a rate several thousand times above what is current) - My dream would be to be able to conceptualise and envision film, and have a team of people who could bring my visions into reality ~ 
    dA related - I have fallen in love with ink-sketches, simply using a fountain pen. I use waterproof ink, so I can feel that my art is permanent (as opposed to pencil sketching) - and it is an easy set of tools to carry with me~

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Photoshop painting. I love bright colours/ dark scenes - and with photoshop there's no materials to buy, but you can make amazing works. I am interested in a million things so I'm not going to even try to convince myself that I could ever put enough effort into gaining the amazing skills others have ~  

  8. What was your first favourite?
    I don't remember the artist as well as I do for my next few favs - but in the beginning Japanese comics/ manga was how I got interested in traditional fine art and I suppose this work seemed completely out of my range of skill
    At the time and even now, I don't know what it's from - if anything ~ very pretty n__n 
    Trio of Trouble by hakujou-muse

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    There's a wide range - but I don't fav that much at all. Not that I'm not absolutely amazed by everything on here - the level of artistry is breathtaking ~ 
    I suppose anime/ manga/ photography/ naked men?

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    For me - dA has always been a filing cabinet for my amature art, and a place to meet awesome art-peeps; rather than a place to admire amazing art-expert-pros ~ but for now, I'll say: Nesskain

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    I'd have lunch with Farand , priteeboy , Shikeleostar , and II-edison-II (AKA Frida Khalo)
    Also if I could perform dA-necromancy, then I'd add in 
    MurkHellsing <3

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    MurkHellsing taught me the magic of friendship, and also that it is perfectly normal and perhaps even preferable - to be a demonic twisted abomination who looks like a wraith and feeds of the innocent souls of idle bystanders. 

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Rotring fountain pen, Noodler's bulletproof ink, Rhodia paper - blank.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    Sitting in front of a beautiful scene - the edge of an island covered ocean, a red desert, an ancient town...
    or.. Sitting in front of a beautiful guy ~ 

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    I can't remember specific things from the early days... I guess getting to know and growing close to random strangers on the internet before other social media was a thing (chatrooms and the forums) - 
    And recently.......same as the above?~

What's up? :iconbritishplz:
pushka Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hello~ n__n

Things have been good~ I was traveling a lot for 6 weeks (taking annual leave for this year and last year ಠ⌣ಠ )
it was most-amazing-super-good - climbing mountains, visiting family, loitering in graveyards and cathedrals~ funfun n__n

Only that the last two days, my being-an-idiot caused some boytroubles a second time and I felt I could never be happy again, but in the middle of the day my close-to-my-office friend was performing in her graduation from the pole-dancing class thing so me and her ex-manager friend watched a bunch of classes (beginner through advance and also one new teacher did a thing) - and it was amazing so I felt better, (and they actually played 2 songs I love), and then at night I was playing D&D for the first time with some friends woo~ u@
Farand Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2015
You've certainly packed a lot into a comparatively short space of time! :noes:
Where did you travel to? :sherlock:
I am sorry that you felt you couldn't be happy again - clearly, you put paid to that idea! I've been an idiot before, too - a not very nice idiot, at that :stare: Well, we should use such experiences as stepping stones to our self improvement :meditate: :hug:
pushka Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, quite so - always learning to be did~

I was mainly traveling to the Czech Republic and Lam-Germany/Bavaria to see relatives (which was awesome) - and on the way there, showing my parents around Tokyo and climbing mt. Fuji with my dad @ u @
Then my parents went back to Syd. and my sis went galavanting with boyfriend to friends and weddings, and I backpacked through some cities for 11 days - Salsburg-Austria Zurich/Geneva-Switzerland, Lyon/Paris-France ~ was amazing u@ Here's a photo from each city~
