Hey there guys, Arven here.
So, as you may know, it's been DA's 15th birthday recently, and they posted a journal about this Deviantart questionnaire.
While the idea behind it intrigued me, I wasn't sure whether you guys might be interested in reading my boring stories XD
But between yesterday and today, I received so many messages from people mentioning me in their own DA Questionnaires, that I got compelled to to that <3 So many people mentioned me as their favourite artist or as a person they'd be excited to meet in real life, and I just don't know what to say <3 I'm flattered
Seriously, you guys are simply amazing. I don't know where I'd be without your support^^
So, for the occasion, here is my own Deviantart Questionnaire!
Q: How long have you been on DeviantArt?
A: Over 7 years. I joined DeviantART on January 20th, 2008.
Q: What does your username mean?
A: It started off as an anagram of the word "Raven", referred to a cartoon character I was in utter love with when I joined 7 years ago.
Later on, I discovered that "Arven" also means "The inheritance" in Danish XD
Q: Describe yourself in three words.
A: Crazy cat lady.
Q: Are you left or right handed?
A: Right handed!
Q: What was your first deviation?
A: You haven't seen anything
Q: What is your favourite type of art to create?
A: Definitely comic pages! They're a lot of work, but great fun!
Q: If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
A: Watercolours! I LOVE working with them, but they're so hard to use! I wish I had ways to improve my technique, and I'm doing my best to get better with every new work
Q: What was your first favourite?
A: A character sheet by the very first friend I made on DA
Q: What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
A: Mainly comic pages and character designs.
Q: Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
A: The toughest question! I simply can't choose!
In terms of technique,
are my absolute favourites.
But there are so many missing from this list that I feel bad for leaving them out! D8
Q: If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
A: Without a doubt
And not only them! I'd be absolutely thrilled if I could meet
Q: How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
is the main reason why I joined DeviantART. I had literally gone nuts for her comic, and I was so hyped that I HAD to create an account and draw my own stories.
I mean, I loved her work so much that I even told her that she was great... on my own profile XD comments.deviantart.com/4/6464…
Oh come on, I had just joined, I had no idea how DA worked XD
Besides, this is the very first comment that was ever posted on my profile. And I posted it. So you could say I took my own profile's virginity
Anyway, if it wasn't for Kay, I probably wouldn't have discovered DA when I did, and I probably wouldn't be as active or experienced as I am today. So, thanks Kay C:
Q: What are your preferred tools to create art?
A: Coloured pencils and watercolours!
Q: What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
A: The mountains that surround Bozen, Trentino, in the North of Italy. Such an inspiring, relaxing place!
Q: What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
A: Another tough question! I have so many memories on this site!
Receiving gift art is always a thrill that will never stop overwhelming me! I'm always immensely grateful for the time you guys spend and dedicate to me, I'm flattered!
I'm grateful that the community I'm part of is an absolutely friendly and lovely environment, where people help and support each other.
So my favourite DA memory... is exactly the fact of joining DA. It changed my life, for the better I think. I wouldn't be the same person if it wasn't for the 7+ years I spent on this site, which I came to consider like a second home, and if it wasn't for each and every one of you, who spent a minute of your time looking at my works or sharing a few words with me.
I'm immensely grateful for the chance you gave me, and you keep giving me, to grow as an artist and as a person.
Thank you so much everyone! And don't worry, Africa page is on its way
