How long have you been on DeviantArt?
- Quite a long time, actually. I believe I got my first account when I was 18 or 19 - which would be like... 13 years ago. Almost as old as deviantArt itself!
What does your username mean?
- It's my name! Well, my first and middle initial and my last name.... Before that it was EternityWaits (I think) which is my most used handle online. That one.... I don't quite remember the story behind, but I really liked the sound of it so I've been using it on various sites for quite a number of years (maybe like 7 or so)
Describe yourself in three words.
- Illustrator, Nerd, Dinosaurfangirl
Are you left or right handed?
- Mostly right. There was a time I was pretty good with my left hand due to my right arm being in a sling for a while, but I'm out of practice. I do, however, have a video up on my youtube channel where I did the non-dominant hand challenge... it's kind of amusing and scary. You can see that here.
What was your first deviation?
- This was not my VERY first post, I'm sure. I had an account before this one - before you were able to change your username. That account no longer exists, and all of the work that was on it was removed. But this is the very first image I uploaded to THIS account. I have ones that I posted that are older, though. They're mostly in my gallery's Sketchbook section, or in scraps (though a lot of those are also in my sketchbook section).
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
- That's such a hard question!!!! Artists like bara-chan or VivzMind , The-Ez , The-GK , rann-poisoncage , Fukari , briannacherrygarcia , IntroducingEmy , AdamWarren , Neolucky , Miiya , MediaViolence ... There are just TOO many!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
- Any of the artists that I listed above that I don't already know personally
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
- Other artists continue to inspire me to continue working on art. If it weren't for being able to see so much talent in one place, I may have stopped a long time ago. And though I don't have a lot of followers like some of the people that I enjoy following, I'm thankful and happy for every favorite, comment, watch and Llama that I get!
What are your preferred tools to create art?
- I primarily work either digitally in Photoshop, SAI, or Manga Studio. OR traditionally, using colored pencils and Copic markers. Though the marker addition is fairly new, I enjoy it a great deal.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
- Home. At my desk. Watching other people create art is always inspirational to me. After watching a really good show or movie is also inspiration for me to create. Weird dreams are another good source of inspiration...
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
- I love the big memes that happen -- like the devID bandwagons that get started up, or the create your own Gemsona from Steven Universe. Things that get a lot of the artists together on devArt and introduce them to other artists that they might not have otherwise seen in a normal sense. Those things are amazing, and those are some of the best things on dA, I think. I think there should totally be more of those going on!
