The great big DeviantArt maymay

Mon Jul 21, 2014, 5:37 AM
Shyree posted this recently and I'm finally not too lazy to do it.

1. How did you join deviantART?

After I stumbled across precurser's website and then his DeviantArt gallery, I joined for no particular reason other than sheer curiosity. I'll always give George exclusive credit for that.

2. What does your username have to do with you?
I like to express thunderous things!

3. What is your current avatar of?
It's from vowbreaker's kaiju avatar project.

4. How many Watchers do you have, and how many do you watch?
I currently watch 488 artists, friends and fellow staff and 2,470 are watching me.

5. Do you have more than one account?
This has always been my main account. Being staff, I have one main test account and created a whole pile of random scenario specific test accounts over the years.
A man has to test things properly!

6. Name three of your favorite artists on deviantART.
Man, only 3? I'll go with somewhat recent favorites I have on my mind - NickyBarkla and veinsofmercury and noisecraft!

7. What deviant(s) do you admire because of their personality?
fartprincess because she's as earthly as she's from another planet.

8. How many deviants do you actually know in real life? Post their avatars.
Now here's a bit of a lame personal factoid. Outside of meeting fellow staff in Hollywood at our HQ as well as during the 2009 World Tour stop in Berlin, I only ever hung out with and visited hexentanz a few times and we live about 7 hours apart.

9. Do you comment, Favourite, or both?
Both, although I feel like I don't comment enough. I have to be in the mood to express myself.

10. What do you typically post on deviantART?
Test submissions.

11. Do you participate in clubs or contests here on deviantART?
I'm not a clubby or contesty person.

12. What is your most popular deviation -- as in most viewed or most favorited?
It appears that would be Title.

13. What's your favorite submission in your Gallery?
The Reality Breaking Proton Collider Juice Spill

14. What are things you wish you could draw better?
Anything. I can't even draw nice stick figures.

15. Do you have a Premium Membership?
Yes, until hell freezes over.

16. How many hours a day do you spend on deviantART?
10 to 12 hours for sure.

17. Are you a fast, slow, or medium typer?
For typing with two fingers like a complete amateur, I can do that pretty fast, however never without typos. I had 3 typos just typing this answer.

18. What is the most annoying thing people ask you?
I honestly don't know. What annoys me sometimes is that people don't ask often enough about anything. Being curious is how you get to know people! I suck at freely talking about myself and answering questions makes up for it.

19. What is the most annoying/offending comment you've ever received?
I wish I could remember any particularly bad comments. What annoys me most is when people act self-entitled and ignore facts and reality and generally refuse to employ common sense and logic.

20. What (or who) inspires you?

A lot of things and people inspire me in different ways to different things, positive and negative. I try to derive personal betterment from anything that inspires me in some way.

21. Do you use guidelines when you draw?
As a matter of fact, no.

22. Do you associate people on deviantART with their icons? Link us to some examples!
I'm not sure. Purely from memory I can't think of any deviant and also remember their icon right now. However when I know (about) a deviant fairly well and see their avatar I'll recognize them before seeing their name.

23. Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?
I have suggested a few. I have posted many myself. I in fact take suggestions!

24. Many people have considered leaving deviantART. Have you? Why?
I belong here. DeviantArt is the first website I ever joined and only here do I feel that I'm part of a community, kinda like an online home. Nothing has ever made me want to leave.

wreckling just posted one of these and I'll take any excuse to do a random art feature. :D

How it works:
Go to your Favourites and share...

The first deviation on the first page of your Favourites:
the muse by Chris-Karbach

The second deviation on the second page of your Favourites:
collider promo image by Robbi462

The third deviation on the third page of your Favourites:
Study work by kyzylhum

The fourth deviation on the fourth page of your Favourites:
Boba Fett by lerms

The fifth deviation on the fifth page of your Favourites:
All From Nothing, We Became Something, 2012 by parablev

Neat. :O

Now feel free to post thumbs from your own favorites selected by the same method in a comment or/and post your own journal. :D

❤ Skin CSS © Nesmaty

Ditto Clipboard Manager for Windows -

I just realized I've been using this tool for several years and it never occurred to me to recommend it to others.
If you've been around and watching me for a while you might remember I used to post regular print features.
The ones that we did with a fancy CSS/HTML blog skin were a nightmare to edit and took 20 minutes often but this tool pretty much halved the time and also took the frustration out of the process.

Essentially the way that it works is that is stores what you copy to your clipboard and once done you can dump all of it at once where you want it instead of having to copy and paste and copy and paste and copy and paste.

When you regularly do big art features in your journal this tool can save you several minutes of work!

((I have a question, I sent something important to the help desk and all of that, and I saw in the rules not to use all caps lock, and I didn't except for like 2 or 3 words and it was only for emphasis. I didn't mean to be rude. Does this mean that they will ignore my inquiry? Because I reallly need it answered.))

I wanted to make a complaint. Why is there so much nudity on DA? I know there is the mature filter, but it is hardly effective. Moreover, pedophilia seems to be free on this site?
