1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I don't know, let me check... six years.
2. What does your username mean?
My username (which I use everywhere by the way) is actually the name I gave a character of mine in a short story I once wrote.
I wanted a username which was unique enough that I'd be able to use it anywhere, and simple enough that me and everyone else could remember it and spell it. The name that came to mind, was the name of powerful wizard I wrote a short story about. So yeah, this isn't my name, although anyone who ever bothered to read the bottom of my 20QA comics would know that.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Super Special Awesome!
Sorry, I've only just recently watched all of YuGiOh Abridged. I think that does describe me pretty well though. Although I'll come up with something more original.
How about: Overconfident, Humourous, Awesome.
4. Are you left or right handed?
Left handed, and I struggle to cut anything with scissors. Writing with a pencil or pen is also quite a chore, although nowhere near as much using scissors.
I use my mouse the right handed way though, thanks to my dad having always put the mouse that way when I was a kid. So yeah, I got used to it that way. Using a mouse the left handed way just feels awkward.
5. What was your first deviation?
Which was soon followed by this:
Now why don't you read them.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Comics... obviously. Just look at my gallery.
It's my hobby.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Just a simple cartoony fun looking artstyle. I think this question oversimplifies the term art style, and can't be answered properly though.
It'd be better to ask "If you could draw like a certain artist, which artist would it be." In which case my answer would be Richard Elson.
8. What was your first favourite?
Heck if I know. Although it was probably something drawn for me.
If I had to take a guess.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
There really isn't any particular type of art I tend to favorite the most. I just go on random faving sprees based on certain things, and whether or not I like them. Whether that be comics, digital art, or even traditional art. I don't really care, so long as I like it. I'm very picky in what I favourite though.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Ooh, that's a tough one. Although in all honesty, since it asked "artist" I'm going to have to choose myself. Simply because I'm my favourite artist on deviant art.
As for my favourite friend on deviant art. Well there's three people. The now long since gone Tom345. The first friend I ever had on deviant art. DreadHaven who I'm currently playing Dwarf Fortress with. And finally ToddNTheShiningSword, who I've had a LOT of great conversations with.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Hard to say really, I'm quite the recluse. Probably DreadHaven.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
In all honesty, I don't think anyone here on deviantART has impacted my life. Sure plenty of people have made me really happy, and done some brilliantly awesome things which I'm very grateful for. But no one has had an impact on me. My comics have improved over time, not because of comments I've received, but in my own strive for constant improvement. Nothing on deviantART has really led me to any life altering things, or even anything major. For example, I discovered MLP on a zombie forum, not here on deviantART. If I had discovered that here on diviantART, I would've probably been able to say something based on that.
I think I've digressed a bit too much though. No one here on deviantART has impacted my life, not in any way major that is. Sure there are those that have given me inspiration, but that's about it.
But if I really had to choose someone, it'd have to be ToddNTheShiningSword, for commenting on my Raz and the Everything comics, and inspiring me to finish it. I would've probably never finished those comics had it not been for him.
But I wouldn't call that an impact on my life.
Hmm, I wonder if I've impacted anyone's life?
Probably not. But I've definitely made plenty of people smile.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
A computer. More specifically, an IBM Clone (I'd probably do ok with an IBM as well, but I don't have any). To simplify that for everyone, a Windows machine. I could explain the technicalities of what I meant, and educate everyone, but let's face it. I was just being a smart ass, and no one cares.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
No that's not a joke, I'm being serious. Sitting on the toilet gives you time to think, since there's rarely anything else to do (unless you're one of those weirdos who brings their phone or newspaper with them). As a matter of fact, I used to come up with entire comic page scripts while sitting on the toilet back when I first joined deviantART.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Nope... can't think of one.
Hold on, wait. I know one. When I finally made this:
I'm still incredibly proud of that. I wouldn't really call that a deviantART memory though. Just a generic art memory.
I don't know how those stupid tags work.
