Now I can finally keep up and move ahead! And since I'm actually planning to restore this humble corner of dA to its former usage, I guess a good way to start over is by doing a delayed
How long have you been on DeviantArt? - 8 years (and the 14th is/was my dA birthday... Really, I didn't notice! What a coincidence!!) But I actually started using this account for real in June/July 2008!
What does your username mean? - My username is the result of various failed attempts to register: I wanted a nickname with "dragon" in it, like LadyDragon or something... But of course it was already taken! After a couple of attempts I came up with the one and only!
Describe yourself in three words. - Well I guess that "Friendly", "Nerdy" and "Talkative" will do!
Are you left or right handed? - Right, but I'm trying to exercise my left hand for precision tasks, since I've got a problem with a bothersome lump on my right wrist that sometimes hurts... -_-
What was your first deviation? - This one! I liked this concept, and I still would like to print it on shirts and stuff, but never got around to do so... I have to try and do something about it, since now I can actually use Photoshop to my advantage!
What is your favourite type of art to create? - I like to try various mediums and materials, so I may virtually post anything, but I'm particularly at ease with my good old mechanical pencil, lead refills, eraser and drawings/paintings are my favourites!
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? - Depends on what you mean with style... I'd like to become less toony, but aside from that, It would be cool to be able to do some nice and realistic paintings!
What was your first favourite? - Apparently this piece by Lilyas (awesome artist, by the way), but I actually think the real one was deleted... How sad!
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? - Fantasy followed closely by Photographs (manipulated or not) and then Fanart!
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? - There are too many to count... And some are actually not online anymore (again: sadly ), on a technical level Lilyas, darkspeeds (whose enthusiasm is infectious), hopeburnsblue (she's an awesome and amazing person, very talented with words) and on a personal level: hapbuk, Stef125, cricketumpire, Ksantor, Lynus-the-Porcupine, Nianden and Trired!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? - Weeell... I would love to meet a lot of my dA buddies in real life! Probably (but since she's form the UK, I'll probably first meet other Italian deviants!
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? - Lots of deviants left an imprint in my life, but I'd like to remember my good old friend Kara, who was actually my first watcher via this old club ... I actually can't find her, sadly, but we used to talk a lot (on ye olde msn IM)
What are your preferred tools to create art? - I'm partial to paper, my trusty mechanical pencil (and lead refills), eraser and inks! But I wuv my Wacom tablet (old Bamboo from 2011)
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? - I actually don't have one: I simply go with the flow and try do work when inspiration strikes!
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? - I seriously can't pick one: I have too many good memories originating from this site and its faboulous users!
