How long have you been on DeviantArt? Deviant member for 10 years!
What does your username mean? A Pooka is from Changeling: the Dreaming, and is one of the races, specifically an animal aligned trickster with a flair for fun and not taking anything seriously. My character's name was Angharad (which is also the name of the main character from The Rowan) and I needed a new email account after Juno died a horrible death, so I used my character's race and name and have been using it periodically since for usernames.
Describe yourself in three words. Damaged, stubborn, softhearted.
Are you left or right handed? Both, I'm ambidextrous with right hand favoritism for things that take a lot of detail like inking or coloring... or wiping my butt. XD I can eat, groom, cook, sketch, crochet, paint, bead, you name it with my left, but I can't managed to wipe my butt without using the right hand.
What was your first deviation? I used this icon as a test to figure out how to post pictures up. I didn't make this. I don't know who did, I got it off a free gif site, I think. I'd been using it for almost ten years already as an icon on forums so it was the most readily available picture to be my deviantID at the time. Who ever did make it 20 something years ago has my eternal gratitude and I will hug them to DEATH if I meet them in thanks. My first deviation that I actually drew was:
Because I didn't want my very first (actually made by me) deviation to be: Seemed a bit depressing, even though the 4th Horseman is still one of my personal favorites from my entire artistic body of work. PROBABLY because I know I drew it entirely with DARK GREEN LIQUID EYELINER. Oh yeah, Death rocks the liquid eyeliner. (long answer is long)
What is your favourite type of art to create? Fantasy, traditional, and largely anthro character art... because I suck at realism, digital, and proper proportions.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Digital. I don't even care if my art didn't get BETTER, it'd be faster and I'd never run out of the marker color I needed again. LOL
What was your first favourite? I THINK it was this one:
It's the oldest fav in my favorites, but a lot of devs hide or remove really old artwork from their galleries so it might not be the first I fav'd and just the oldest surviving fav...
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Mostly digital works involving beautiful people, probably fan-girly type stuff, because I am a fan girl and I'm not about to quit my addiction.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? Um... I'd hug her and take her out for lunch. She's been great to me even through simple little things like saying hi after I've disappeared for a long time.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I think I just answered that... I had a rough time not terribly long ago and the people who comforted me right after it happened are some of the best people I know.
What are your preferred tools to create art? Paper and pencil, because my computer hates me when I try to use it.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? My art corner, close enough to the computer that I can play music without blasting it, and cushioned with a foot thick pile of real sheepskins for ultimate squishy butt hugginess.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Ummm... back when I was more active (my own fault for not being) and logging in to check messages. It actually never stopped being exciting to know that other people enjoyed my art and looked forward to seeing my posts. So not really any one point, but every day I log in to see someone commented on my art, or fav'd one of my pictures.
