|Happy Holidays to everyone this year!|
How long have you been on DeviantArt? I've been around here since 2008 but with another account that has been deactivated, however I can't recall it correctly since the hotmail account I had registered on with has been deleted due to the lack of activity. Then I came back to the deviant world a year later with the account rocked-out (now oridzuru ) and a year later after buying three years of worth premium account, I myself decided that a new beginning would come in a different account, so I left that account with all those great features to start all over in this new account! I left it because things at home weren't okay. My brother now sister came out of the closet, I had just hit my 20th birthday, things changed a lot in that year. So everything I had built in there remembered of so many great things that in real life were already gone. I'm happy that I could keep one of the best persons I could had ever met in deviantART MelzyV Girl, I still cheer up for you!
What does your username mean? I have changed it around 4 times already, I used to be a premium member (now, core (?) In this account my username used to be jaejunggim I named it after my fave kpop artist Kim JaeJoong. He accidentally wanted to share a photo on twitter, however, he couldn't do so, and posted a pc url (lol how silly of him to do that!) and everyone in the kpop fandom realized this nickname of his "Jaejunggim". Yeah... I'm rather awkward telling you the true meaning behind my initial username! Then by my closest friends I was called out as "Jae" because I would spazz all over at the smallest thing my idol would do. So yeah, I'm Jae too. I still remember at the beginning when I used to be improving my coloring skills random online articles showed up sharing my work. These editors/blog writers would post that a guy named Jae had a great gallery for your PS needs... You know, if you are gonna write and publish down an article at least you should be aware of the details you are sharing, I stood up to 5 to 10 blog writers and told them I actually am a girl, this way people should stop addressing me as a male. It didn't happen and another article written by a lady came right in the way telling her friends (she had a nice number of subscribers I remember) that she was so in love in how this Jae guy would try to enhance things, and she was mesmerized that a male dude would create so "feminine things". Now recalling this out, I'm giggling, it was cute after all! Hey, if you are that lady! You just made my day by remembering this random memory! Thank you.
Describe yourself in three words. Clever. Colorful. Cheerful.
Are you left or right handed? Right handed.
What is your favourite type of art to create? Photoshop resources! and creating stuff for my classroom (I'm a teacher). I've gotten crafty (lol am I being understood here?) However I do enjoy taking photos and doing vectors but I don't have the confidence to expose my work!
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Drawing. It has been a huge dream of mine!
What was your first favourite? This is a hard one! I have almost sorted everything into folders (expect from the last year that I didn't have enough time to select the folder and then fave, I now just fave everything I like. I always say: there would be a day in which I can fully organize my stuff better again. But it hasn't happened yet, lol! enhancers.deviantart.com/favou…
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Everything my eyes, heart and soul like!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? MelzyV L_L without any hesitation!
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? The above one. Even if we are far apart, she is the only one person that hasn't forgotten me or my birthday for the past 5 years! So distance and hiatus me never stopped her for caring for her friends! Something most of us tend to forget!
What are your preferred tools to create art? Photoshop, Illustrator, Sai (for brushes), cutter, foamy, fabrics (lol I sound lame)
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? My room. As a teacher, in a clean, empty area in which I can have my crafts and do everything I would want for my classroom without interruptions! My room or the front yard. When making fabric dolls, out in the fresh air of a park.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? When I got my first Daily Deviation! I did not expect it! I would had never ever expect a DD for my work. When I got the first one I went fangirling myself over it! static.tumblr.com/c8xdioq/BGal… It was pretty cool! Then two more came over my way and I felt like I was winning an award or something! They gave me a lot of recognition and job! I have made two presets for a really popular worldwide camera smartphone app. (I cannot tell which one, it was set on my contract that I couldn't speak of), and for a huge Japanese site, they exposed my brushes and had a magazine issue for the photoshop lovers with the most creative brushes I had a feature! and then really popular brush sites came hiring me.
