  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    7 years! I used to visit the website to look at drawings a few years before that though.

  2. What does your username mean?

    My favourite username at the time had been taken by another artist (who, typically, hadn't used the website in about 5 years) so I made a new one up on the spot. It doesn't really mean anything, just sounded good in my head. I've used it as my main username ever since.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

    Daydreamer, sweet-tooth, sleepy

  4. Are you left or right handed?

    Right handed.

  5. What was your first deviation?

    Pacman I was so proud of it at the time, but looking at it now it's rather cringe worthy. Everybody has to start somewhere though I suppose.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

    I love designing characters. It's my goal to work in the film or game industry creating character designs. I still have a long way to go though.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    Digital painting. I've always wanted to paint beautiful illustrations, but have grown very comfortable in my own style with line work.

  8. What was your first favourite?

    Flame - The Envoys

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    It's a mix between digital painting and cosplay.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    Endling is one of my favourites. His character design work is incredible, and he's been a massive source of inspiration to me.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    I'd love to meet griffsnuff. She seems like a really fun person, and I'd love to discuss her art style and methods of drawing.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    RogueLiger was an artist I first met over on TLKFAA. Her encouragement back then helped me become a better artist, and continued when I made a Deviantart account. I'm only sorry that I never kept in contact with her.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

    Photoshop and a Wacom Intuos tablet. I've used graphics tablets for a very long time, and I can't think of drawing without them. I rarely sketch work traditionally, but when I do it's usually paper and a black biro.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    Around other artists. It's a wonderful environment when you're sitting at a desk surrounded by people drawing. There's a really focused silence as everybody works, and I find myself drawing a lot more than usual in those situations.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    The day the Llama badges were first introduced, everybody went crazy. There were llama drawings everywhere, people were sharing badges left right and centre. It was bizarre. 

Happy birthday DeviantArt! :party:

Q: If I've commissioned something, can I post it elsewhere?
A: Commissioned work belongs to the commissioner, so you can do what you like with it. Credit it optional, but appreciated.

Q: Can I post your work somewhere else?
A: You may, as long as:
  • You do not make money from it
  • You give me credit
  • You don't claim the work as your own

Q: What program/s do you use to work?
A: Adobe cs6. I'm primarily a digital artist.

Q: Do you do digital paintings?
A: Digital painting is something I'm still working on. Right now I'm not happy enough with it to offer commission work in that style.

Q: Do you animate?
A: While I'm able to animate, I don't really enjoy doing it. I do, however, love working on all the things linked with animation (i.e. storyboarding, character design, etc.)

Q: Do you use a tablet?
A: Yes, right now I use a Wacom Intuos pen small, and I'm saving up for a Cintique companion.

Q: Do you have any qualifications?
A: I have a bachelors degree with honours in Animation and Illustration.

Q: How long have you been drawing for?
A: I've always been interested in art, but I started to focus on drawing when I was fourteen, as I joined an online art community (TLKFAA).


Q: Do you take requests?
A: Not any more. I may reopen them in the future, but at the moment I need to make money from my artwork.

Q: Are you open for commissions then?
A: Right now, my commissions are closed (as I'm working on three) but I will reopen them soon.

Q: Do you have a price list for your commission work?
A: I'll be making one soon.
