A Commission for Araktugage
One of my recent favorites
I poured all my efforts into this one, and I'm quite pleased with the result.
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
7 Years -- May 28th, 2008
What does your username mean?
It's the name of a huge, red dragon I had a dream about once. His rival watery rival was a dragon named Oshibo.
Describe yourself in three words.
Anxious, Modest, Shy
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
I did a test scribble in MS Paint, of a dragon, just to see the upload process. A lot of my first submissions would have been things I did on NeonDragonArt's oekaki boards (just search 'oekaki' in my gallery), followed by a lot of ballpoint pen drawings of anthro animals.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Fantasy creatures. I also enjoy anatomical studies, semi-realistic animal sketches, and nature background art.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I have yet to master any art style, so I'd be happy with mastering anything. I'm a huge fan of semi- to photo-realistic art, both digital and traditional.
What was your first favourite?
Honestly, I don't remember, but I'm sure it was fellow oekaki artist's works.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Resources, references, that sort of stuff. It's good to have a wide range of photos and styles to learn and expand my knowledge with.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Besides all of my amazing art buddies that I've grown very fond of (whose usernames have changed more times than I remember)? Screeches, Metonymic, Lily, Sharkfu, Kenny...I'm sorry if I've forgotten anyone. TOO MANY NAMES.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
All of my online buddies. c:
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Oh gosh... The friends I've made here really helped inspire and push me to improve. The constant "OMG NO YOU'RE SOOO MUCH BETTER THAN ME" back and forth really made me happy. :')
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Zebra ballpoint pen for inking, and Prismacolor pencils for traditional stuff; PTSai and Flash for digital
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Probably somewhere in nature, like a forest trail, but I wouldn't be able to take my whole pc setup out there, would I? XD
