How long have you been on DeviantArt?
According to my profile, I have been on DeviantArt for about 5 years. I had an account before this one, so maybe a bit longer, lol. I don't really use this account often, as real life has pressed me out of my artistic state of mind and I no longer have a lot of time for artistic things.

What was your first deviation?
Oh my god, this was so long ago! I did this for a history class assignment in high school! I remember looking up a reference image for the car and the calligraphy! xD
What is your favourite type of art to create?
I love traditional art. It gives me some much needed time away from a computer screen.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital Art. I love the idea of drawing with a tablet, but I am not gifted/blessed with magical photoshop/gimp powers.
What was your first favourite?
Oh lord jesus, let me look back in my history....
Well, the original first deviation I favorited is in storage by someone. I don't quite remember what it was from it being so long ago, but the next best thing is this:
This entertained me for HOURS as a kid. A simple flash production, I loved the simplicity and fluidity.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I favorite a lot of digital art. sakimichan

. I also love when I get to see TsaoShin at Anime Boston every year.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I can't say, really. I love a lot of different artists for a lot of different reasons.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
. I love her art style, and I feel like we would get along really well.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
So I mentioned that I like to attend anime conventions...So I like to dress up. After the weekend is over (usually on Sunday) my friends and I all peruse the dealer's rooms and Artist Alleys to see who came to celebrate the weekend. kevinbolk
is a great guy, and I love seeing him at Anime Boston every year as well. He gave me a wonderful signed autograph that I carry around with me all the time. It makes me really happy that these artists who do so well here are humble and wonderfully nice people.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
I choose to use everyday mechanical pencils. However, when shading, I will go back and use my Faber-Castells.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My most inspirational place? Probably anywhere. I consider it serious talent if you can take anything from anywhere and turn it into art.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Probably when one of the people I followed took a long haitus and then came back. They haven't created any art since, but knowing they're there is a nice feeling.
