DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 9:16 PM


So, I hate all these "Do this challenge and tag 10 friends!!!!!" because I find it obnoxious to bombard my friends and I've made a point to never fall in to that sort of trap. But I've made an exception because I had a lot to say to this one and I thought you guys would enjoy the insight into Hearty's mind. (Also I haven't made a journal entry in well over a year....awkward XD)
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? I started DA on another account Sakura-lies in 2009. I abandoned it for numerous reasons; after a short-lived hiatus, I created the Heartystar account to mark the moment in time when I took myself seriously as an artist.

  2. What does your username mean? Sakura-lies was actually a weird association to the song "Alyssa lies", which didn't have any real relevance other than the fact I found the title catchy. The username HeartyStar formed semi-organically as I attempted to find a matching (but shortened) monogram for a pen name I used for years that I was going to use when I was a famous manga-ka: Haruhian Sakurai. Inspired from characters of my first favorite animes Haruhi from Ouran's High School Host Club, and Sakura from Naruto. I'd been using Star as a nickname for years, but I decided "Hearty" as a self-inspiring quota to live up to.

  3. Describe yourself in three words. Slowly getting better

  4. Are you left or right handed? Right-handed for drawing purposes. However, my left hand is (oddly, but) significantly stronger, so I use it for most everything else.

  5. What was your first deviation? Undoubtedly a shoddy drawing of my Mary-Sue OCs from the series Wolf's Rain rendered in Paint. But for this account the oldest deviation I have is: So what? by HeartyStar which is a good example of my transition for cell-shaded to digital paints.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? I still enjoy simple pencil sketches, but I've grown fond of cellshaded works and hope to get better with digital paints.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? The point is the journey, without it I'd have no motivation or subject to create. Having said that, I've admired abstract expressionistic oil paintings all my life and I have always hoped that's where my art will lead me eventually.

  8. What was your first favourite? Childish I've adored this piece ever since I first saw it. No matter our reasons to create art or dramatic shifts in subject or style, it all goes back to - "it made me happy when I was little, so I keep on keeping on." I'm sure the picture itself has a different meaning for the artist, but whenever I feel too depressed or stressed to make art, it keeps things in perspective: It takes a minute and it makes you happy, so why are you saying no?

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Digital art certainly, but artwork with a lot of motion and color.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? In all fairness, I couldn't possibly name a single person. So many people have encouraged me with my art and with my life and with my problems. The majority have inspired me without even realizing but their contribution to my growth is apparent to me - and so very appreciated.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? :iconyuumei: :icongasara: :iconhellobaby: :iconmarkcrilley: :iconpaperanddust: -notice me senpais~!-

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I refer you to article number 10

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? My brain. Certainly if I had a more dependable tool, there would be a far greater amount of art to worry about. However lately, when I am able to solely use a pen or tablet pen I'm forced to doodle for a rare instance and I've happened upon some interesting creations.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? I've thought of myself as a nervous person with artistic tendencies for most of my life, but I've come to realize the biggest things that motivate me to create is emotionally provocative experiences. Any situation that turns into a memory I return to, often ends up as inspiration for a piece. Meaning, it makes a bad situation a little better, or good memory with a souvenir. My friends are the best people and they help me appreciate the good times we have and I try to capture that feeling in my art.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Most all of them make me happy. Catching up with a friendly person on the other side of the world, getting to talk shop with fellow artists or writers about the work I or they have created, or simply giving or getting a "It's beautiful!" comment on a deviation.

Heheh, I left a note on my old account (but I don't think a lot of people read journals XD) so most people will probably find me this way and fall in love with my art all over again ^-^
