How long have you been on DeviantArt? 7 years (although it seems much longer somehow!)
What does your username mean? Aries is my astrological sign, which I was very proud of when I first made this name for my email account in high school. Namarie means "farewell" in the Tolkien elvish language, showing how macabre I was (and still am) Mystery solved! It kind of amazes me how many people think the name Marie is at the end of it.
Describe yourself in three words. Lazy, existential, dreamer
Are you left or right handed? Right handed
What was your first deviation? Looks like this was the first thing I uploaded although I have much older pieces up now - it's from my college portfolio where I majored in Metals/Jewelry/Cadcam: And now I basically never make jewelry, go figure! Although it is on my 30 before 30 list to make one real piece of jewelry this year
What is your favourite type of art to create? Fantasy! I love that I don't have to follow any rules
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Realism - I'm so jealous of painters that make things look like photographs! But at the same time I know I would never have the patience.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Fantasy pieces and fanart of things that I love
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Too hard to choose! There are so many talented people here
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I would love to meet nati, I think she's so talented
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? Many deviants have inspired me to keep drawing when I've hit an art block - I always spend at least a few minutes per day looking at everyone else's beautiful creations
What are your preferred tools to create art? Right now, watercolor and my tablet
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Hmm that's a tough one. Most of my work gets created right here at my desk, but I probably brainstorm the most when I'm in the car
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Making and sending the Christmas cards that get distributed in the hospitals
Well, better late than never!
Happy 15th Birthday DA!
