Random Favourites

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?
R Comic Preview by DanVzare
Which was soon followed by this:
R Comic Page 1 by DanVzare
Now why don't you read them. :D

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Comics... obviously. Just look at my gallery.
It's my hobby. :D

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.
Probably this: Sesshoumaru by Tom345
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. :D

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?
The toilet!
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: Raz and the Everything Cover by DanVzare
I'm still incredibly proud of that. I wouldn't really call that a deviantART memory though. Just a generic art memory.

Once again, I'm using DanVzare's account for exactly what it exists for: ( =P ) Making people's days with the comedy they need, right when they need it! :D
But this time, I'm going to comment BEFORE I get distracted by everything.
Things suck for me right now, so I'm stressed out for the time being and am not sure about how my situation will be for a while. But I'll get to the stuff I wanted to say!
This general problem is why I haven't been replying to messages lately, and
I don't think you told me how you did on that exam(s).
You told me you were going to get some grades back on the 17TH I think? But I think you said remind you, so yeah. How'd that go?

*goes to read new Emoticomic now*

Well I hope my comedy helps you. :D
I don't know what's got you down, but I hope things get better for you soon. I wish I could help you. :hug:

As for my grades. I forgot that I was supposed to tell you about those.
Yeah, I got my grade about two weeks earlier than the initial date. The minimum mark you needed to pass was 40%, I got 59%.
While it is a pretty low mark, it is mostly due to me having only completed three of the four questions. They were really long questions, each taking about an hour to do. And I'm not used to writing by hand (especially code).
So while I'm still a little disappointed by the low mark (which in my opinion is mostly due to the exam structure, since I knew all the answers from over-studying), I'm really glad that I passed.
I don't even want to imagine how much of a negative impact, failing would have. So, yay for me. :)

In case you hadn't noticed, your comedy already did! :D

My Comment was edited, so if you wanted to find out what has me down, you could look at the original edit... :shh:

I don't understand that grading structure... but that's not like it's rocket science or anything. Just... programming, right? :nerd: That should be understandable enough. When I studied programming, I kinda tried to write code on paper, but times are different now...

You're not used to writing by hand? Yep. Times are definitely different from the 90s! :XD: But seriously, it would probably seem weird to a lot of people, especially old folks and stuff, to think that one day people would stop writing with their hands... :shrug: But you did add "especially code". Writing code by hand is... odd. But it worked for me in small bits just because I could jot down ideas and then test them all later.

What were you supposed to be coding?

I'm glad you passed, especially thinking about not wanting to imagine what failing would have done to you. Man, I bet failing to pass that exam would have been as hard for you as failing to outsmart Batman would be to The Riddler. :batman: !
DanVzare Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2015
Oh cool, you just learnt me a new feature there.
Hmm, well I hope things get better for you soon. And if makes you feel any better, financially I'm struggling too. It's kinda one of the reason I'm so glad I passed. I can't even afford the courses as is, let alone taking the same course twice!

Yeah, no one gets the grading structure for my course either. It's stupid and people have complained about it. It's also a bit more complex than I made it seem. You see, you have your exam grade, and your grade for your overall coursework except for the exam. And then your lowest grade for both of those, is your final grade. If either or them is below 40% you fail. My overall mark except for the exam was 98%, my exam mark was 59%. Thus my final mark was 59%. Talk about annoying.
And I've not even told you the weighting of the various assignments in the overall coursework part, this making some parts completely moot.

I've always been very slow at writing by hand. Partly because I'm left-handed. My handwriting has always been a bit crappy, which is why some of my earlier scanned in comics have had the handwritten text replaced with fonts. More recently my handwriting has improved due to me now practicing drawing by hand (I know, it's weird how that has had a knock-on effect on my handwriting). I'm still slow at writing by hand though, and due to that I prefer to write only on a computer... or a typewriter, but I don't have a typewriter (anymore).

I was learning Java, more specifically the generic elements of Java that you can find in most object-orientated languages.
Throughout the course they had everyone learning the ins and outs of the language and occasionally tested on the things we were learnt. But we were never really told to code anything, which is weird.

Talking about The Riddler outsmarting Batman, I think in the Arkham games, The Riddler constantly outsmarts Batman. I mean, clearly The Riddler is succeeding if he's consistently managing to get Batman distracted in collecting all of those little question-mark trophies. If The Joker was that good at distracting Batman, he would've probably destroyed the world by now.

DanVzare Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2015
More popular than vocals?
moonsaber56 Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
vG cats it's a comic
DanVzare Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2015
Oh I know what VG Cats is (I read the comic), but why did you refer to it as "vocals"? 
And how can you say that I'm more popular than VG Cats, when I'm clearly not!

I came across a couple of your pieces in the DevArt Comics group -- and I have a question a little out of left field:

I'm on the hunt for a semi-regular Letterist (1-2 pages a month) for a collaborative Transformers comic book series I'm producing here on DA. Would it be something you might be interested in helping out on?

Check out the project here: :icontf-tvc:

Cheers, and keep up the great work!

Sure, I'd love to help you with your project by being a lettererist for you. :D
