So here goes:
1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 10 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
3. You have to choose 10 people to tag and post their icons on your journal.
Yeah, no...I know from experience that my friends here aren't really fans of being tagged.
4. Go to their page and tell them you have tagged them.
5. No tag backs
6. No stuff in the tagging section about "you're tagged if you're reading this". You legitimately have to tag 10 people.
What can I say, I've never had a lot of respect for authority. But I'll answer the questions:
1. How many piercings/tats you got?
Zero. No piercings, no tattoos. Not a fan.
2. Are video games art?
Absolutely. Not just in terms of the graphics and sound, but studying game development as I have, I know that the means to getting the computer to do what you tell it to do is an art form in itself.
3. Favorite Italian dinner?
I guess I'll have to go with chicken alfredo...does that count? I don't know much about what nationality my food is...just how it tastes.
4. What got you interested in art?
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. I think it was my dad's 1980s Fantastic Four, Superman and Spider-Man comics that got my attention.
5. Who do you follow on DA that you look up to?
Quite a few folks. It's hard not to admire
's hustle, and the hard work
put into their passion projects.
is a creative machine, naturally...and there are others. I have a list aside my journal page called 'influential deviants'--not an all-inclusive list, but those folks are the ones I admire a lot.
6. What advice would you give to fresh artists new to this community?
Don't get caught up worrying about numbers (page views, favorites, ages, etc.). Just post the best art you can and comment/critique on the works of others that interests you. It may take time but you'll gather a following and/or new friends eventually.
7. Eastern or Western animation?
Eastern, mostly, though I am also a big fan of the animated movies DC/Warner Bros. have been putting out lately.
8. What the hell happened to music!?
Don't ask me. I'm the last person to know anything about music. I didn't even start listening to anything specific until 1996 when I was almost 20 years old...
9. How many projects do you have half finished right now?
The actual number...countless. But the number of projects that I actually intend to finish? Two. Maybe three.
10. What you like to see me work on next?
Fan art of one of my WCL characters! Hey, it's worth a shot...
Okay, I'll come up with five questions that anyone who feels like it can answer.
1. Interested in the Nintendo Wii U?
2. Where do you hang out online besides dA?
3. Respect of your peers or admiration of your fans? (No "both".)
4. How many hours do you sleep per night?
5. Primarily traditional artist or digital?
