How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been here 11 years

What does your username mean?
It's my name; I use it for any site where I post things created by me.

Describe yourself in three words.
Intelligent, creative, spacey

Are you left or right handed?

What was your first deviation?
Captain Jack Sparrow by rjoyhelvie

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Probably pencil portraits, though I also really enjoy drawing costume ideas for my novels

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital coloring

What was your first favourite?
Drawing of Russell Thayer by arminmersmann

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Oh man, I have so many favorites, there probably isn't anything that is favorited more than anything else. Fan art and cosplay, though, tend to be big hits for me. :-)

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I have SO many favorites, but one of the artists I've been following the longest and on the most social media platforms is briannacherrygarcia

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Probably briannacherrygarcia

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
SummerRayn became a friend, and then a roommate, and then like a sister. She taught me how to not care if other people are judging the way I look or act. I haven't seen her in two years, but thank god for Tumblr and Facebook and DeviantArt, because I don't know how I could stay in such close touch without such sites!

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencils, though I really wanna learn and get better at using my Wacom tablet.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Well, writing-wise, somewhere quiet but with friends; NaNoWriMo write-ins are SO helpful in motivation!

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Nothing precise comes to mind. Mostly I just love it when I get favorites, and especially comments, since I've not uploaded anything new in a long time and I personally don't think I'm all that great of an artist compared to so many others, so it's always a boost to my confidence when I get comments on any of my pieces.
