today we have a special guest!
deviant for: 8 yearsVampiraLady: How have you known dA community and site? Why did you join it?
I came to know deviantArt when I was a month into my first year of high school.
One of my new acquaintances (now one of my closest friends today) showed me the site as she had/still has a profile herself. I thought it looked really cool and an amazing alternative to a Danish drawing site I had been part of. dA really seemed much better and I have never regretted the decision. What was your first work submitted here?
It is this one: hoshi-hana.deviantart.com/art/…
. Same day as I joined. I remember I created the chibi in Chemistry and then I went home to scan it. I have always drawn in classes because it makes me concentrate better. C:Why do you create works?
Drawing and any other kind of creative work makes me relax like nothing else does. It gives me such a peace and joy. On a deeper note I made a promise to my granddad on my mother’s side to never stop drawing before he died 15 years ago. And I’ll do my best I can to fulfil that promise. Do you create manually? Digitally?
I do both actually. Even though I started on doing digital works about 9 years ago I have never stopped sketching in hand before transferring it to the computer. I like the feeling of it.
An example of a recent manual work I have been doing is the sky that I painted a sky on the wall for my stepdad‘s model train rail about 2 weeks ago. It took 2 days and a sore back. I had to lie on the wooden board for the train.
. It made me miss the time before digital, so I expect to do more manual drawings. Do you care about amount of your watchers, faved works, comments?
The support, comments and faves means a great deal to me. I make the art for myself but I like to see the response/comments from people to know if there’s something I can do better/just liked it/want me to do something similar or if it (drawing) has given them the same joy it gives me by favourite my art. Your favourite dA artists? (why?)
I have many favourites within different styles and genres. One of them being
. I love her cartoon style and her way to do background, poses and expressions.What's the thing which is really troublesome for you in creating it? (what's the most difficult for you)?
It has for many years been hands and feets, but it has been a great help for me to use references to see how they look like in different angles and poses.
Right now it’s how to figure out how to do things in pixel. I had recently a commission which was a furry and I had troubles finding out how to draw and colour as in pixel. I am not happy about vehicles and stuff like that. It’s really troublesome. Give the descripition of the place where do you make your works.
Everywhere and anywhere. I always have my Samsung tablet and sketchbook on me. I mostly draw at my own place, at my fiancées place, my mom’s place and at school. What does inspire you?
It’s music, books, nature itself, my transport-route for school, movies, series, legends, Pathfinder RPG – simply everything. My imagination is easily triggered.What do you like in your style/subjects of works? How do you think – what great adventages/skills do you have?
I am fairly happy about my anatomy. But I most of all love their faces – the eyes, noses and mouths. Do you earn money on here? If not, would you like to?
Yes. I like to be challenged and do other things than I normally do and it’s by doing commissions, requests (only fanart) and art trades. I like to make others happy. The worst thing which happened to you here?
I made an art trade with a person once who kept rudely bugging me about a new art trade with pornographic nature even though I kept saying no. In the end I blocked him.
Otherwise I have met other rude and annoying people now and then – but you meet them everywhere so it’s nothing to mention.Tell me what would you life be without dA?
I would probably do fine without dA, but it would not be the complete same. I really love the community and I have gotten a lot of friends and developed a lot as an artist through dA.What's your attitude to showing someone's personality/personal life on dA? Do you do the same?
I believe people have every right to do as they want. I have no right to interfere with their decision and nothing to say to it. On a personal note I think balance is important. If you don’t show personality then you can seem withdrawn or cold and it doesn’t work if you want to make friends. But too much is way too much. The internet is a dangerous place to reveal very personal information because it can be used for the wrong purposes.
I tell what I think is relevant on dA.Have you ever considered leaving dA? If so, why?
No, never. What do you want to tell our readers, on the end?
Even if things seem hopeless and your art perhaps seem like at a dead end, then never give up. Keep trying ^^ Everything has a solution. And always draw for yourself because you love it. That way it comes from the heart.
