So in honour of deviantART's 15th birthday, I'll be filling out this questionnaire because WHY NOT.How long have you been on DeviantArt? Oh god, if we count my old account plus this one it's probably a good 11.5 yearsWhat does your username mean? Originally it was called RussianLullaby, which was based after a eurodance song under the same name by E-Type. I was heavily into eurodance, techno music (along with being a huge weeaboo) in my early teens. Describe yourself in three words. Angry chubby shortyAre you left or right handed? Right handed, but I can write and do other things with my leftWhat was your first deviation?
.... Ironically I believe it was Beyblade related and HERE I AM YEARS LATER still in XD It was from my old account which I'm in the process of taking down my old stuff, saving it and then I'll eventually delete that forbidden place.What is your favourite type of art to create? Character concepts; I have to draw everyday or I'll go nuts. I also don't mind prop-making and painting.If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Costume making, but I'm terrified of sewing machines and my perfectionist brain won't let me sew by hand because I can't keep a straight line.What was your first favourite? ... WELL, from my old account it's (there were a ton of Beyblade ones but most were in storage)
And from this one it's What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Fanart, or anything traditional. For a number of years I was a 'TRADITIONAL ONLY' person and actually despised digital. Don't know why, I just did. But majority of what I fave these days is either art that appeals to my personal interests or something that really stands out. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Aw fuck, there's too many, really. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I've met a lot of people on here! To name a few so far it's been Airanke, Lia-Amari, rynn-sama, Panhime Chickah-Dee, Xailing, Callie123 ( I hope to see you three plus more at AN 2016!). Guaranteed there is more but I have a terrible time remembering things so please let me know! I know there's more... How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? Lyricanna credits me as the person who got her into this website, but she's one of my biggest support networks when I've been at my all time lows and when things have gone to shit on here from time to time.
are my best friends both online and offline, even though all of us have been busy I feel like whenever we meet up it's like time hasn't passed and it's good. I know both of you are going to rock the animation world. You both inspire me to keep creating and to keep improving on my art. And like Rhys, you've been there for the long road and when things went to hell. FelesTacita
I;ve known you for almost as long as I've been on here, which is amazing. But her artwork is something I've always adored, and I also look up to for traditional work. And then there's the inside jokes
I WILL ALWAYS BE SPARKLY AND AMAZING, ALWAAAAYS.LadyToothless
are some of the amazing people I've recently met when I decided to come back to the Beyblade fandom. Your support means the world to me, and pushes me to keep doing more art and posting it despite the doubt and worry I usually get with my OCs. Thank you
The people I mentioned above in who I've met offline have also impacted a great deal of my life. A lot of role-playing happened in my teen years that I'll always remember. A lot of art, inside jokes and ideas were put to paper from them - even if the art then was horrible
When I was attending Sheridan college I had severe depression that was almost crippling me, but getting together, going online and just goofing off really helped. I'd like to go back to that, to be honest. What are your preferred tools to create art? Pencil (mechanical; either graphite or coloured lead), ink pens, artist markers (Copic, Prismacolour, Alpha and even Bics), pencil crayons for traditional. Wacom Intuos tablet and Paint tool SAI.What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
"I don't actually have a special place like that. I think some of my best memories of creating art were in fog-mire's attic though
" I actually agree with Rhys on this, fog-mire
's attic has some magic in it that just wants us to draw and toss ideas around. YOUR ATTIC IS MAGIC.What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
"The Twilight/Seekers/Lady Gaga April Fools day prank." Yep, I agree with Rhys on this one too. FOR I AM EDWARD, SPARKLY AND BEAUTIFUL. AND ANYBODY CAN GET ON MY BACK FOR A VAMPIRE RIIIIIDE ... No joke, this April Fools joke had like a werewolf effect on me where I was suddenly the biggest derp that day when normally I barely talk. This was probably the BEST April Fools that deviantART had, and nothing has topped it since.
Annnnd that's about it. This wasn't really a 'tag your friends' kind thing but if you want to do it - go for it! Now I'm going to laze around for a bit before getting ready for work
