How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on DeviantArt for 7 years. Since 2008!

What does your username mean?
Hahaha it's an inside joke, but my username means "armpit hair" in Japanese.

Describe yourself in three words.
Probably no f*cks given. I'm pretty chill, and I don't like to let things bother me.

Are you left or right handed?
I'm right handed. :dummy:

What was your first deviation?
Gaia - A_n_n_a by Fynaria It was art of my avatar on Gaiaonline. Before I posted this, I used DeviantArt as a way to save art without downloading too much on my parents' computer, but then I decided to start posting my own so that I could easily share samples of my art for point commissions. 

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Probably digital, but I also really enjoy acrylic painting. In terms of the final product though, definitely digital. There's a lot more that I'm able to do with digital, and it's easier to share once finished. So long as I have my computer, I have almost all my past work with me, and it just looks a lot better than my traditional work because I have a lot more control. 

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Something with clay might be fun, I took pottery in highschool. Or maybe watercolor, because I really suck at it. But I'm only really interested in three mediums that I already work with. Digital, acrylic, and pencil/ink sketches.

What was your first favourite?
Vampire by dbebek I'm shocked that I still remember this. :icondraculaplz: This was one of the first links I had to DeviantArt, and one of the reasons I joined was so that I could save this somehow. I had a vampire craze when I was younger haha.

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

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
cerena To-fu unicornism felixavenier HamletMachine RobotMichelle :love: I can't choose just one!

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Probably all my closest friends on here. I wanna meet yous.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I met a lot of great friends on this site, and everyone has always been so supportive and encouraging with my art, and my friends have helped me through art blocks and with lack of motivation so many different times. I wouldn't have improved as much as I have without the awesome creative friends that I made on here!   

What are your preferred tools to create art?
My crappy Wacom “Bamboo Fun” CTE-450 tablet and Photoshop Elements 6.0 for my digital art. I don't use anything unique for my acrylic paintings, and for my sketches sometimes I use a shading stick roll and then I line with the nearest ballpoint pen I can find. 

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Definitely a nice, quiet dark room. Usually with headphones in, blasting music into my eardrums until I'm nearly deaf. :dummy:

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Probably whenever I finish an art trade with someone, or the first time I see work that I commissioned. Completing art trades is probably one of the best feelings on the planet haha.
