Long time no see... I have been pretty busy with moving (again), a new job and so on... But I lurked once in a while ^^
I just noticed, dA celebrates the 15th birthday - how awesoooome So why not join the celebration and take place in the questionnaire?! Here we go...
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I just checked... For 8 years now
What does your username mean?
I was 16 when I first joined and this might have been my "dark phase" (). I loved everything dark and fantasy-ish... So because my first ever internet username ("Kaye") was taken and I refused to add a number, Shadowelve was born. When the dA-name-change-thingy was introduced I thought about going with something more "professional" like my real name. But oh the nostalgia... In the end I couldn't do it
Describe yourself in three words.
Imaginative, a little crazy (who isn't? ), cheerful
Are you left or right handed?
I'm right handed, but left footed
What is your favourite type of art to create?
I always loved drawing and painting when I was younger. But I never valued my skills particularly high and never show my traditional pieces to anyone When I joined dA I was obsessed with photomanipulation. Over the years it changed to photography... Sooo basically I really like trying new things and just doodle around. I don't consider myself as a real brilliant artist, but I like what I do haha
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Oh that's hard... I really love all the traditional and digital artist who can paint these incredibly detailed works and have the skill to bring their visions to life (I have the visions, but not the skill haha)... It's sooo hard to decide... I'm just going to show you some examples:
Or all the photographers who are able to catch the beauty of nature or create really cool concepts like these:
Ahhh and sooo many things more I'd like to be able to do...
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Mhmm I favorite everything I like... I think I watch mostly photographers and mixed media artists... But no matter which gallery: when I like a piece, I it ^^
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I think... But there are so many great artists... I love the works of , , really much... I always loved the art of and ... And of course the photography masterpieces of , or
There are sooo many talented people out there, the list would be endless.. So please bare with me if I didn't mention everyone! But you are all awesoooome
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Mhmm I think you are all lovely I guess the most realistic meeting would be with members of my german photography group germanphotographers... But I would love to meet all my favorite deviants and maybe get a private lesson and secret tips!
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Ah this one is really hard... Because I can't really name one deviant that changed my life or something. But I think it's the whole community that impacted it. I always loved being around here. Sometimes more, sometimes less... But overall it's a really lovely community. If you are open and nice yourself there is so much in return. I always liked this about dA and I think this taught me some real life lessons too!
What are your preferred tools to create art?
At the moment definetely watercolors and pencils... I rediscovered my love for traditional art, even though I don't think there is anything I could share with you. Apart from that my Nikon of course and my beloved computer (his name is "Sir Henry" ).
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Oh this is easy: definetely my home. As much as I love nature and as much as places and people inspire me, I think I get the most ideas when I am at home, just lying around daydreaming...
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
All of them together? I don't know... People here are coming and going... I always had nice talks and funny moments around here. I really enjoy the work in the groups I'm admin/mod of. Of course the nice feedback for my art is a point too. And of course the day I received my one and only DD (I was sooo proud and am still)... It's really hard to tell. Probably everything together. You rock guys!
Ahhh well now I got a little bit more sentimental than I wanted to... Sorry about this
Have a lovely evening and happy celebrating
