Ok, as everyone else is doing it, I thought I'd jump on the band wagon as well. So, here's my answers to the questionnaire!
How Long have you been on Deviantart?:
I've been on here for just over three years now, but would have been on here longer if my computer from about four years ago had let me come on here and not blocked it for no apparent reason -_- What does your username mean?:
My username, Devicorn, is a combination of the words Devil and Unicorn, and has always been my moniker on the interwebs. I chose it because one of my favourite animals is the unicorn, but I didn't want to call myself something so...well, ordinary when it came to names. So I thought hey, why not put a twist on things and make it into a Devil-unicorn? I've always been a bit of an evil one anyway *laughs evilly*
Also, I thought it was rather fitting for the avatar I subsequently drew myself:
Describe yourself in three words:
Hmmm....Impatient, Curious and Dreamer/Fantasist.Are you left or right handed?:
Right, but thinking of trying to become ambidextrous.What was your first Deviation?:
Oh jeez, I actually can't remember ^^' Lemme just have a looksee...ahh, here it is! My first Deviation was this:
....god damn that's so bad nowthat I look back at it...but everyone has to start somewhere, right?What is your favourite type of art to create?:
Traditional art, by a long shot....because it's really the only art I can do
. To be honest, though, even if I could do other types of art reasonably well, I'd still always favour traditional, as nothing can quite beat the physicality of traditional art, of being able to feel
the piece you've just created rather than having it behind a screen or printed on a piece of paper, where both perfections and imperfections cannot truly brush against your skin...sorry, that's the writer in me talking ^^'If you could instantly master a different art style style, what would it be?:
Digital art, both because of the fact I see so many amazing deviations created using that media - deviations that are oftentimes from or about games/characters I absolutely love, like this (not mine in any way):
and because there's really no other style I think I'd be suited to actually using. I've tried a little bit of it, though, and god, I'm so bad XDWhat was your first favourite?:
...Damn it, now I look really bad....I can't remember again
. Lemme just go look....Ahh yeah, I remember this one:
It was the first Daily Deviation I saw after I'd set up my account, and I just had to favourite it. Not only because it has a dragon in it, but because it's just so colourful, and the animation is pretty damn good. Kudos to the creator - I wish I could do something half as cool as that XDWhat type of art do you tend to favourite the most?:
I've had a quick nose about my favourites, and it seems to be mainly digital art - I really do admire anyone who can create scenes that look real from basically nothing -, but other than that there's not really a theme other than fantasy, and even that is a bit of a shaky guess. I think I tend to favourite things that catch my eye and imagination, make me laugh out loud or bring a tear to my eye, be it small sketches, huge, room spanning pieces, or even little snippets of stories or drawings of characters from the games I play. Just anything that really speaks to me in some way.
The Fifth Horseman“I'm not saying they're not killing each other,” I explain. “I can see from the figures in front of me that they're killing each other. What I'm saying is that unless you can broaden your demographic, we're never going to meet our targets for this quarter. This is supposed to be a world war, Belgium and the Netherlands isn't going to cut it.”Who is your all time favourite artist?:
War squawks at me down the phone. It's hard to hear him over all the screaming in the background, but frankly I'm not interested in his excuses, I need to see results.
“What do I expect you to do? Do your job! Think outside the box! Look, Famine is in Europe right now, why don't you ask him for some help? I see the potential for synergy there. No, I'm aware you don't do 'asking for help'. I'm also aware of your performance over the past century, and I'm noticing some startling correlation between- hello? Hello?”
I slam the handset back into its cradle, which is a lot harder than it sounds when done from the back
Gah, that's a hard one (that's what she said
). There are some many artists whose work I love, and I don't think I can really chose just one person. If I really had to, though, I'd probably say
. NanFe because of her truly unique style of digital painting, which is emotive and expressive in a way I wish I could emulate, and blackstorm both because of just how good she is with a pencil (seriously, go check her art out, I promise you'll be blown away by how amazing it is) and because of the fact that most of her art is Bleach oriented - and you guys should know just how much I love Bleach (the manga and anime, not the detergent) If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?:
I honestly have no idea XD There are legitimately too many people to chose from, each and every one of them giving me some reason or another to want to meet them XD How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?:
Well, back in 2013 when I was really, really
ill - I could have died quite easily had I not gone to ICU, because I had toxic shock (There's a journal of mine somewhere explaining exactly what happened, go have a look if you're are a bit morbid and want to know the gruesome details) -
, a good friend of mine who also happens to be one of the best artists I have the pleasure of knowing, did a pretty damn funny, but also lovely, little animation get well thing for me, which is here:
Not only did this give me half of the watchers (shout out to all you lovely people) and half of the favourites I have now, but it gave me something to smile about during my arduous and extremely tiring two month recovery. And it also gave me, no jokes, 120 comments with ducks in them.
And I'm still getting spammed with ducks occasionally even now XD So here's to you, Epifex, for being a great artist and a caring friend, who seems to think I like being spammed with ducks! What are your preferred tools to create art?:
Need I say anymore (apart from the fact that I like coloured pencils just as much)?What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?:
Well, I do most of my drawing up in my room or in our dining room, the former because it's away from the family, private, and that's where I have my alarm clock that my iPod can hook up to and blast music from almost as loud as I want
, the latter only if the paper I'm working on is too big to fit in the small space in my room I reserve for drawing - so anything above A3 in size. Out of the two, my room is the more inspirational, as all the books I've bought (mainly fantasy), all my figurines and toys (yes, I still have toys), and most of my old art is in there...but it's not truly inspirational. Now, if I had a house in a place like this:
...well, that would be my idea of heaven, in both an artistic and general sense XDWhat is your favourite DeviantArt memory?:
Umm...again, too many to chose from. If I really had to chose, though, it would probably be when I gained my first
. Having someone favourite your work gives you a real boost - it shows that it's not just you who appreciates your art.
Well, there you go then - my DeviantArt Questionnaire! I hope you guys enjoyed finding out a bit more about me, and that you'll also do this questionnaire, even if it's only for fun XD
