My answers to the questions
1.What mostly inspires you?
Forests. Critters. Animated movies. Other people’s artworks, especially fanart. These people themselves. Music. Monsters. A lot of things, actually...
2.What do you like mostly to do?
Walk a lot with headphones on. Makin’ art - especially refining and posting it (I don’t have the patience to make neat lineart, my least favorite thing is flat coloring and cel shading, cos it’s boring). I don’t have a job and don’t want to, except if it’s about art and it allows me enough freedom of expression and there’s cool people around. I’m not feeling too confident in my skills to try freelance. I'm unreliable little shit that lives with her boyfriend and doesn’t even cook much. I quit 2 universities ‘cos it wasn’t my thing and I’m currently self-teaching myself to do art (by making fanart and earning no money at all). I’m afraid of responsibility and don’t trust myself. But I mean well! T_T And if I’m forced to earn money on a boring job, I'd better quit life - plain surviving isn’t worth the effort.
3.Do you like Pokemon? If yes, why?
Pokemon is the only fandom I keep coming back to, even if I get bored with it at times. It was a thing when I was a kid, I remember running home after school to watch the series on TV. I sketched ‘mons while watching and made them a sort of paper “adoptables” (colored with markers and covered in transparent tape so that they stay bright and clean). I even decorated my school backpack in a similar way, sticking the picture to it with staples, which I drove into it with my own hands - a stapler wouldn’t help with it. The picture was Mewtwo and Mew in the front, a Pikachu on a side pocket and I dunno what else. I had video cassetes with 3 Pokemon movies and a stuffed Pikachu.
I’ve said I love critters, that’s why. Powerful, almost sentient pets that come in various shapes and you can collect them. And the whole Trainer culture is about travelling and adventures. I wonder what kid WOULDN’T like Pokemon?
4.Are you introvert or extravert? Do you think we have too many introverts nowadays?
Most likely I’m introverted, though I can switch into extravert mode sometimes. That makes me a bit of energetic vampire, though. Generally I’m afraid of what people think, I can’t stand feeling awkward and ashamed, even though I shouldn’t give a fuck, and sometimes I don’t - then I behave like an unruly asshole kid. When I feel bad, I mean. I can be so many things depending on my mood I don’t even know if there’s a “me” or I’m just a huge bunch of moods and reactions. I don’t care, cos I don’t like myself much.
It’s not that more introverts appeared, it’s more like they “came out of the closet”. Modern society accepts the fact that about ¼ of all people are introverts, but earlier they would be stigmatized as lunatics. They still call us sociopaths but at least they don’t force treatment on us.
5.What do you like in artists artwork?
Personality, most of all. It’s easier to see in sketchy works. I like neat art too, especially Disney style - colorful and emotional. If the artist really loves the character they draw, I feel it and start to love it too. I usually get into fandoms after I see fanart, that’s a key to my heart, lol. Did I mention I don’t care for landscapes, cars, buildings, etc? I may like some forest/field landscapes and pictures of things like apparel, but mostly I prefer to look at characters.
6. Your favourite bands/songs?
The first band that comes to mind is Machinae Supremacy. I like MOST of their songs, as opposed to many other bands, of which I like SOME songs. In my teens I loved Rammstein, Nightwish, HIM, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson - the usual routine. Some Russian rock bands, too. I don’t listen to much Russian music now, ‘cos music is background for me, and lyrics I understand completely distract me from what I’m doing. Other bands I can remember are Rhapsody of Fire (Luca Turilli), Van Canto, Within Temptation, Scooter, Marina and the Diamonds, System of a Down, Powerwolf, Abney Park, Florence and the Machine, AwolNation, Moby. I’m starting to like Hollywood Undead right now. And I love the song “Nosebleed Section” of Hilltop Hoods, don’t ask why. Someone on Newgrounds made a certain music video out of it.
7.In your opinion, what's the difference between erotic and porn stuff?
and tell me: isn't porn just a junk in your opinion?
Erotic is more about feelings, while porn is more about dicks and cunts, plain and simple. I enjoy emotional art, though sometimes I’m in the mood to look at dicks, too. I tried to watch some “real” porn and it’s mostly “eww”, ‘cos real human flesh doesn’t look very good (unless you love the humans that flesh is attached to). Let simple-minded guys jerk off to that porn, I don’t mind. It may be a good pose reference for erotic art - the stuff I like. Especially fanart. Especially non-human things...
8. Did I surprised you with the number 7? Also: did you enjoyed the wall of text that was about me?
Can ANYTHING surprise me? Well, sometimes plain things can - like beetles and such. Reality surprises me, but in the Internet anything is possible and people are not ashamed to discuss sex stuff. I like that you talk about it, it’s an excuse to talk about it too. Sex, sex, sex. All hail Freud!
Your wall of text looks a little silly at times, but it’s nice to know some things about you, cos you inspired me and all. And you’re open-minded and talk about porn :3 Just don’t be offended when I stop drawing Swampert and making a lot of comments, ‘cos I’m like that. Me losing interest in fandoms is a natural thing. I hope Slenderman fandom doesn’t miss me too much. Sorry, guys! >_<
9. If you read comic...what one(s) would you recommend?
Johnny the Homicidal Maniac (crazy bloody fun!) and its spin-off I Feel Sick. Fairy Tail manga (people have magic abilities and battle as if they were Pokemon, lol). The Electric Tale of Pikachu (based on the anime, less stupid things, better art). V for Vendetta graphic novel (a dystopia with a mysterious and very charismatic title character). The Monolith (your typical superhero comics, only about a golem!). Goblins (www.goblinscomic.org) - the main characters are DnD monsters.
10. Your favourite things you look for on DA?
Fanart of my beloved (and formerly beloved) fandoms. That includes Pratchett’s Discworld, Invader Zim & JTHM, Slenderman & Creepypasta, Salad Fingers. And Pokemon, of course. Note that “things I like to watch and read” aren’t equal to “things I’m a fan of”. I like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad and Skyrim but I won’t search fanart or draw it, except if it’s humorous.
1. Describe your personality.
2. What’s your dream job?
3. Pets and favorite animals?
3. The same about Pokemon, or Digimon, or both. Or other fantasy creatures, if you’re not into this stuff. What makes these creatures special for you?
4. Personal qualities that you like in people. And what you hate, too.
5. What do you think of GLBT and genderqueer people? If you’re homophobic I won’t hate you… much XD
6. What do you think of family? The concept of it, and whether you want to start one or not. I don’t insist that you talk about your own family, unless you want to.
7. Political views? Or just your opinion of society, if you’re not into politics.
8. Favourite music. It’s great to discover new bands to listen to, lol.
9. Favorite books/comics. Describing in a few words what they’re about and why you like them is very welcome.
10. The same about movies, cartoons and anime.
Notice I’m not asking about art. Seeing your gallery and favorites is enough to know your preference in art, I think.
And tagged will be...
If one of you happened to be tagged already, you don’t have to reply to both sets of questions, I think…
I tried not to tag people that are too busy or would have difficulties writing a lot in English. If I was wrong while choosing, sorry, my bad...
