1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?I joined DeviantArt on Nov 24, 2005, so it's been nearly 10 years. I discovered this site thanks to an High School friend, who shared my love for art and drawing and that made me register during our afternoon journalism lab. I never left since!
2. What does your username mean?
I've been using the nickname "Eren" since I was 13-14 years old, so it's been more than 10 years now! When I registered to deviantART my nickname was already taken (by someone who already didn't use the account anymore >___>'') so I had to settle for something different. I chose "Eeren", doubling the initial "E", since it's the same initial of my real name and… it was the only option that came to my mind! XD I've thought many times about changing my name in something that wouldn't mislead people on my real nick, like: LadyEren or E-Eren or using my nick and my surname (I would never use my real name, since I'm recently starting to hate it, since people always read and say it wrong), but I never got around to doing it.
3. Describe yourself in three words.Crazy. Multitasking. Redhead.
4. Are you left or right handed?
Right handed! I'd love to learn to write and draw with my left hand, some time ago I had started exercising, but I stopped after 1 month.
5. What was your first deviation?
This was my first deviation: it was a drawing I did of a friend's OC.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Surely Digital Art, mainly fantasy themed pieces. I also love coloring, always digitally!
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Oh my... this is hard. I'd love to become better at photography and instantly learn everything there's to know about ISO, lenses, camera settings, dos and don'ts of photoshooting and so on! I'd probably also enjoy being able to work better at traditional drawing and I'd love to know more about the "rules" of comic coloring.
8. What was your first favourite?
The first 4 pieces I faved are in storage, so I'll have to go for this amazing piece by bleedman
. I ADORED this drawing, I even printed it and put it on the wall near my bed! So damn cool!! I really loved this comic and bleedman
was one of the first artists I've watched once I got here! So inspirational!
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Digital art in general, but I don't focus on just one genre: illustration, character design, landscape, concept art... I also fav photographies, cosplay, literature.. everything that I find somehow inspiring.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Many of the people I tagged before have had a HUGE impact on my life, on my art, on my career and on my future. Some of them brought me inspiration, some brought me hope, some brought me happiness, other sadness, someone brought me all of this and so much more. Some supported me, even if they did not know me well, another became a fundamental person in my life, someone I could never live without, someone who's giving me a bright future and the energy to face every obstacle in the world, brake it and go on gladly. There are no words to express the gratitude I feel for having brought me the chance to meet this person, dear deviantART.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Photoshop and my Wacom Intuos 4.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I'm a digital artist, so I need my computer to create and I mostly do it in my room, which I think is a fairly inspiring place. I've got posters and art hung on my wall, photos of the people I care the most for, books, artbooks, comics, music... nearly everything I could need to create!
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Probably my favorite dA memory is the day I got my first Daily Deviation. I remember it like it was yesterday. I was at University, with my friends, when I saw the "Congrats on the DD" comments, the tons of favs and I stared at the screen for a few minutes, not understanding what was happening. Then I understood and.. I started crying. It was 1st October 2009. One of the best days of my life. I shouted, jumped, cried and laughed. My friends thought I went crazy! Surely a memory I keep close to my heart!
Lovely is the memory of the day I met
here in Rome! He was sightseeing with some friends, when I spotted him thanks to his deviantART bag! I ran straight to him, asked him his dA name and watched him as soon as I got back home! XD So much fun!
Speaking of first times, surely the day I met
was another day to remember for the rest of my life!
Tears of happiness and excitement were brought to my eyes in the days these AMAZING artists watched me... I still can't believe it happened */////*
And I'm looking forward to many, many more of thee incredible deviant-memories!!
