How long have you been on DeviantArt?
My profile puts me at 7 years, so since middle school.
What does your username mean?
Absolutely nothing. I thought of it off the top of my head when I needed something a bit less lethal than the "94killerz" I had used for just about everything (read "video games") beforehand. It's stuck since then, and has become a fairly common conversation piece since I commonly respond to "Idiot."
Describe yourself in three words.
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
Over the Tree-Tops to the Sky, submitted on the day I created my account (most likely taken that day, too.) Taken on a cheapo, $50 camera I had gotten for Christmas a year or so before.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
It varies with the mood: poetry comes easy and feels best when my emotions become difficult to deal with; photography "comes naturally" since I tend to see a lot of aesthetics in everyday life; but graphic design work is the most rewarding personally since I've spent so long progressing on it without even meaning to.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
What was your first favourite?
Mother Father Son by Shawlln. I can still see why I love it.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Generally visual works, since they will randomly catch my eye with the thumbnail. I would have to say the recent trend has been toward drawn pieces, as it constantly amazes me what people can do with pens and pencils.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Pass. The tie list for first place is far too long.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Either Shawn Coss or Kris Wilson. Both seem like pretty cool guys, both of whom have brains I would love to pick over a few drinks.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
More than I will ever likely know. I've had many help me out of dark places, others who have inspired me with their progress and accomplishments, and a countless group of complete strangers whose unconditional kindness and compassion overwhelms me in such a way that I always try to be the same to everyone I encounter.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Whatever I can get my hands on and learn how to use.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Either at my desk, or in the middle of nowhere with nothing but land around me.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Can't say I have a single favorite. Like above, the unconditional kindness and compassion constantly overwhelms me. I guess with that I would have to say it's the random notes I occasionally get, often times as thanks for some small thing I've done (such as giving a llama, or liking a deviation.) I've met many people I've considered great friends over the years where first contact was made in such a manner.
Software Engineer with a soft spot for the arts. I enjoy partaking in all forms of art, including pottery, poetry, music, photography, acting, and graphic design. On the outside, I am a very shy person; if you get to know me, you would wish I was shy on the inside, as well.
If there's anything else you would like to know, feel free to shoot me a message.
|I would love to be able to start doing regular contests and such in some of my groups come the turning of the year. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and possibly rewarded. (Not like I have any better use for my journal. *hint hint*)|
