How long have you been on DeviantArt?
According to my page, since October 13th 2007, almost 8 years now! (however, I stalked the site for a good year prior to joining haha)
What does your username mean?
Min-Mew I've explained before, but it was a username I came up with on the fly on a pokemon site called PokemonCrater, Min meaning small and Mew, my favorite legendary mon (or mew the sound a kitten makes, but it was probably the pokemon haha) In no way was it ever supposed to be a reference to MiniMew from Mew Mew Power/Tokyo Mew Mew
Describe yourself in three words.
Introverted, Artistic, Inquisitive (thats the best I can think of right now, I really cant describe myself haha)
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
ugh, this terrible thing right here this was WAY back when I was just starting to get serious about drawing, so poor Dee got mangled by my terrible drawing skills haha. I've never deleted it though, its a reminder of how far I've come, and how much more I want to improve.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
I actually like traditional art best, colouring digitally is just easier and makes for some beautiful things, but I love sketching and drawing comics. I also enjoy writing and making crafts. Content wise, Fanart for things I like, animals and mythic creatures are pretty much my bread and butter ;D
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
More like mediums for me, and that would be Sculpting or sewing. The first is something I've yet to try my hand at but love to death. The second is something I struggle with and have so many ideas but not enough skill to make. Not going to give up though!
What was your first favourite?
holy hell, I actually remember this drawing. When I joined I was really into GDW and GNG. This, along with quite a few pictures on that page, are from people who were still developing their art just like I was, and thus I was faving from them more than the big artists first. I could see the effort they put in to their work, and I wanted to make some friends I could relate too haha
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Pretty sure fanart. Though you will see a lot of photography and other things mixed in, but the brunt is definitely fanart
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
oh thats impossible to answer! I like all different artists for different reasons, whether it be their skill at what they make, a unique flare they have, a meaning full reason -like the people I followed before joining DA- or people who have come to be my friends over the years. If you want two artists I look up too right now, it would be and it isn't even because of their pokemon art either. PK's use of colour just blows me away, and how she can make things sweet or unsettling with just a few hues is something I wish I could master as well. Arvalis' ability to make super realistic things, pokemon, mythic creatures and Dinosaurs alike, is mindboggling. Thats something I've always wanted to strive to do myself, and every image they upload is a treat to see.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
oh man another impossible one, I cant say for sure. Its a split between some of my friends (old and new) and the artists above, I'd love to meet all of them X3
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Every artist I follow and friend I've had on here has impacted me, they are the reason I draw and the reason I've gotten to where I am with my art. A good old friend of mine was very close to me back when I first joined and he helped me through some rather emotionally stressing times by just being the awesome person he is. I miss talking to him greatly. and (back in the day, ) are people I can thank for me ever even joining this site! The list goes on and on if I have to tell you all my inspirations and such haha
What are your preferred tools to create art?
I'm known as a digital artist, and I use a wacom Tablet with Photoshop. However, I draw much much more with just paper and pencils, and enjoy crafting things of all kinds.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
hah. well seeing as I have a PC, kinda stuck in my computer room. But ideas wise, usually if I'm on a long car ride or in the quiet at my trailer up north.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
hmmmm so many. I think maybe, and I know I'm repeating myself, but when I first talked to some of my friends here. Or when I first hit 100 pageviews and then again at 1,000 pageviews X'D it doesn't seem like a lot now, but I remember back then they were huge milestones for me. Things I never even expected to get close too... Now I'm approaching 90,000 and that too is crazy as hell! I owe everyone who's ever given my art a look thanks and DA even more so, drama aside this site has been home for me, and it and everyone else gave me the confidence I needed to get better with my art and continue to do so.
