How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Five years! Been a while, ahaha~
What does your username mean?
Mmm, Flame (literal fire, or perhaps passion)+ Kurosei (Kuro meaning black, Sei meaning star or justice/righteousness depending on kanji)--combine meanings as wanted, haha. (Something I made as a kid back in middle school, and I've stuck with it since!)
Describe yourself in three words.
Scatterbrained, Quirky, Resilient
Are you left or right handed?
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Sketches and gifts--I just like experimenting and practicing various methods, and also making a friend smile!
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Ball-jointed works like vonBorowsky --they're incredible works made from porcelain clay, and they turn out so smooth and beautiful!
Or traditional mixed media work like Aquiavel does, because her watercolour/colour pencil works are fantastic!
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I don't favorite often, but when I do, it's mostly because I looked at something inspiring to me. This can either be a powerful message, strong use of colour theory (saturation, balance, etc.), or amazing backgrounds/anatomy, and so on.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Huh, I don't have one! I like a variety of great people here. c:
In terms of my most inspiring for the longest duration though, it has to go to Shegoran --I looked at her beautiful designs and characters for over a year or so until I had to courage to watch her and comment. --big shy baby here--
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Everyone on my friends list, because they are all kind and talented people!
But if I had to choose a few (them plane tickets cost lots of money, y'know): RedRoronoa Shegoran Tea-Storm Aquiavel Keesness would be my top hits (and not because it would be the best planehopping extended vacation ever, ahahaha).
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Keesness helped me earn my first drawing tablet, and I am forever grateful for her help! She's the reason why I can draw pretty things on Sai!
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Digital: iPad w/Procreate, Wacom Intuos5 Tablet w/Sai
Traditional: Strathmore Sketching Paper, Technical Drafting Pencils (Staedler, Pentel)
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Here on dA! I find inspiration through my friend's pieces, and through the dA gallery. When I want to draw but don't know what to do, it tends to be "QUICK, TO THE CHARACTER REFERENCES!" and gifting occurs, pfffff.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Too many sweet ones, but my latest favorite was when Aquiavel surprised me with a beautiful badge of my mascot in the mail. Whew, never saw it coming!
I hope you guys had a very happy dA experience so far! Happy 15th, dA!
(Hope that "Core" thing gets fixed and settled, geez. --neutral because no paid membership--)
