How long have you been on DeviantArt?
11 Years ~ I Feels old >.>
What does your username mean?
Though I've signed my art "Stargirl" ever since I was 13, Stargirl was NEVER an available username you could get even in the earlier internet days. So I shortened it to Star and tried to find a Japanese word I thought I would always appreciate the meaning of. A close friend helped me choose "Masayume" which can mean dreams come true. I believe it's important to always pursue your dreams Even now, I believe it is a good reminder to myself. I use StarMasayume as my username almost anywhere I go.
Describe yourself in three words. Friendly, Lazy, Creative
Are you left or right handed? Right
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Chibi!! Um and other stuff. Anime art was always attractive to me after my obsession with Sailor Moon. I love fantasy or cute, fanart or original.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Super messy colorful style that others make look so awesome.
What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
Usually two categories... artwork that has a very strong appeal, in colors, characters, scene, or story.... often sweet or strongly emotive.
And Fanart... because who doesn't love seeing their favorite characters by other amazing artists?
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Any of my favorite artists? *_* I've been lucky to meet a lot of awesome people at cons though I got to keep in touch with through DA.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
A few artists friends mostly through journals. I'm always afraid to be really personal in journals but admire and feel touched by others who share more about themselves and their life.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Painter has mostly been my favorite program of choice though I have started using photoshop or mixing more. Tablet (now cintiq! Though I sometimes still use the good ol intous... rather attached after all those years.) Traditionally I love copic multiner pens, prismacolors markers, pencils, and copics.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My room is my haven. I have a second story room I will not move out of until I'm married. Windows open up to enclosed trees and lots of greenery, my computer sits at the edge of my bed so I can lounge and cuddle with my kitties. I'm surrounded by art, books, music, and Christmas lights (year round).
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Every big mile stone. I remember the days being excited by every favorite, every new comment or watcher. It is too hard to keep up and thank everyone but I'm amazed that I have so many people who watch me and follow my art <3 As for specific memories, getting a DD for my City Angel art was very exciting and memorable. And logging in to tons of birthday wishes. Above that is the warm happiness I get every time I meet someone at a con and they excitedly tell me they remember my art from DA... <3
