DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 9, 2015, 10:36 AM

Okay, so I decided that I would go ahead and do this

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
  • Oo I actually can't believe I've been on DA for as long as I have! My original account was hacked so I moved to a different one, which DA still won't give me an access password for so I can close it cuz I can't remember the password to the linked email for the life of me! You can find it here: BurntRabbitLucky That one has been open for 11 years and my previous one was open for 2, so that makes 13 YEARS! My DA life is just a year younger then my oldest daughter. Wow....
What does your username mean?
  • ArtSquirrel... Well, art in many forms is my life. Be it photography, music, literature or just scribbling down weird creatures and MLP. So that's that part. I chose Squirrel because I'm basically as neurotic as one of the evil fluffy beings. OCD with ADOS and way too many fandoms rolled into one makes me!
Describe yourself in three words.
  • Procrastinating Neurotic Squirrel!
Are you left or right handed?
  • Both actually. It totally depends on what I'm doing.
What was your first deviation?
  • They DO Exisit by BurntRabbitLucky
What is your favourite type of art to create?
  • OMG?! Really? Um, I like doing fan art in traditional media mostly and I think it's because I'm a mom. I love being able to capture my kids' favorite characters as they know them. >> I decorate a lot of lunch bags and folders for class. Oh, and casts... can't forget casts.
  • I have an excuse by ArtSquirrelNever say... by ArtSquirrelGift: Sesshoumaru by ArtSquirrel
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
  • The more modern comic book style is one of my favorites at the moment nebezial and  AutopsyJuice are definitely an inspiration to me in those genres but then I've always wanted to grasp the extremely realistic and detailed style similar to aenaluck ... So much practice still to do! But then there's digital rendering like Mavrosh Ugh! The choices! This is where my squirreliness comes to play. I can't chose just one nut!
What was your first favourite?
  • This one wasn't the first, I think that one is archived but it was one of the first under this current account.
  • Rough Hands by larafairie
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
  • Hmmm... I don't really have a type I favor over any other. I take each piece as its own be it a picture, a story or a drawing.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
  • Why must we pick one!?! These questions are evil! 
    I mentioned a few of them above so I'll add a few more here I guess, each of them are a different genre so it's really hard to chose an all time favorite. vishstudio is probably one of my favorite photographers on DA. humon for her adorable comics. ChrisOzFulton for his simple yet detailed renderings of my favorite fandoms. Rajacenna for the ridiculously realistic pieces she does. Look at it! Look!
  • Jack Sparrow by Rajacenna
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
  • Any of the above mentioned.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
  • I've made a lot of friends here on DA so again there's not just one that has helped me out when things have gotten rough. They all do their own little part to keep me encouraged or to critique my work. I'm really grateful to all of them for it too!
What are your preferred tools to create art?
  • My hands!
    They really do it all anyway. You know that whole pen holding, mouse clicking ability thing... it's kinda important.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
  • Old Fort Niagara in New York and Venice, Italy. Both of these places seemed to just open my mind up. I miss them both so much and just wish I had more time to visit them as often as possible.... I need Howl's door. Oh, and Washington DC and Zoos. I love Zoos and Aquariums for inspiration. Oo I'm also realizing that these places have lots of people.... 
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
  • Okay, so seeing as I've got to pick one (there's a lot!) I guess I'll go with something that's not an OCT. Hm, so participating in the :iconworld-travel-book: will have to be mentioned. I was fun getting this book that had been through Europe and the US with other artists' works in it. Being a part of that is definitely up there in my DA memories.
  • World Travel Book - Entry One by ArtSquirrel
Well, there we go!
13 years on DA...
This lasted longer then my marriage!


ArtSquirrel's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Originally from Colorado, now in Ohio, I'm a mother of three that is simply on DA for the enjoyment of it. I'm not a professional artist. I'm an author in limbo. Art is merely a way to destress for me. Now I'm off to work on things that need to be finished.
