DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Mon Aug 17, 2015, 2:11 AM

(Turns out this is a dA event thing too. Whoo hoo! Badge.)

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I used to post anime art on for a few years before, but I kept hearing about a site called deviantArt. It's used to piss me off actually, lol, because I kept hearing the name, but I didn't know what the site was about. After a few years I joined. I've been here on dA since Jan 11th 2007, so I would've started when I was 14 years old. Back then I was know by my previous ID - dbzgirl311

2. What does your username mean?
My first username was dbzgirl311. I created it when I was 11 or 12 when I was really into Dragonball Z. When I got to 19 - 20 I figured that I needed my own identity and personal brand since I was at the stage of becoming a professional artist so I changed it to Rocket-Child. I like stars and stuff and have this peter pan like quality of not wanting to grow up, so that's how I came up with the name. On other websites I'm called rocket1111child because of this. 

3. Describe yourself in three words.

Dreamer, storyteller, adventurer 

8. Happy - Emoticon by rocket-child

4.Are you left or right handed?
Right.  Doesn't stop me from using the other hand though ;)

5. What was your first deviation?
I culled most of my old, unprofessional stuff a while ago. So my oldest work is no longer here. I think these are from 2009, 16 - 17 year old period.

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

2D animation. I was influenced by Japanese anime for many years, but i'm getting to different types now these days.
Ruby and Sapphire by rocket-child

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
3D augmented reality. Kinetic sensors and screen projection techniques.
(And get over motion sickness while i'm at it).
Computer nerd stuff. 

8. What was your first favourite?
Again, a lot of my favourites have been deleted by their authors or put into storage.  Here's the 2 oldest in my folder.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Tutorials and Artistic Crafts.  I don't have the patients or skill to do crafts too often, but I like looking at them, and I like seeing how things are made.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Not sure.  I used to follow heaps of people, but then I got tired of getting 200 notifications everyday, so I turned off my notifications. 
Also, I used to follow a lot of anime artists before, but i'm not that much of an otaku anymore.
So... hmmm... I like yuumei if I have to say one. I like that she uses her art to support what she believes in (environmental activism and the benefiting humanity) and her entrepreneurial take in making her Axent wear headphones into a reality.

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Maybe :devrovanna:, she's a cool aussie girl who always aims to get better. 

Unlike facebook, dA is the one site where I don't actually know people in IRL, which is kind of comforting sometimes, because you don't have to live up to anyone's expectations.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Not a particular person, but the site and community in general.  As I said before, I joined the site when I was 14. A kid who wanted to be an animator when she grew up, but for that time, art was just a hobby.  I used to count page views and get disappointed when no one visited my page.  I didn't know that page views was just an analytical statistic that measured the traffic to a persons page, instead I thought it measured the value and skill of my art.  It sucked. But then again, I was too shy to talk to people. (Back then, the internet wasn't as candid with people's identity and everyone online was a creep until proven innocent.)

If anything I began learning how to talk to people online, and promote my art a little at a time. I cultivated myself. Getting better little by little, with the help of tutorials of fellow deviants and education from the continual exposure to art by amateurs and professionals alike.

In university (Fine Arts) we're told to make portfolios and learn how to promote ourselves and curate our own work online.  Now that i'm older I can see that the stuff that I did in high school is exactly this, and through the years being online on websites like dA has actually helped me grow in ways I didn't know.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I prefer to draw. So pencils, markers and water colour for traditional works.  Now that getting more involved in animation, I found that there's merit in being able to draw with a tablet. So I'm doing a lot of work with my tabled on photoshop these days.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Practically, I just sit down at my desk and draw. But for INSPIRATIONAL PLACES, the best has been traveling. When I'm overseas with a sketchbook and my portable set of watercolour, that's when the fun happens.…

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

I remember when Endling held his #Endzone Original Character Tournament (after that a bunch of others started popping up). I didn't enter, but I was really invested in it.  It was like watching sport, as all these artists collaborated to create a fighting tournament with drawings alone.  It was pretty cool too see.  I ended up meeting Endling (Shawn) in person one time at an anime convention in Sydney, Australia a few years ago.  It's really embarrassing to think how much of a shy, fangirl I was at the time. 'OMG, I know you from the internet, lol'.  It's nice though to see how much I've grown though.

Not really sure what my favourite memory is. Everything kind of bunched up mixed together. I guess what's pretty cool, is watching myself grow up into the kind of person that I want to be.

Stairway to Heaven

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all is one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.
-Led Zeppelin
