How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Oh, about six years now. I feel pretty proud of that! I didn't really get active until just under four years ago though. And I wasn't around when it was all about making skins and stuff, so I'm not exactly a veteran, but still, I have seen a lot of changes (Muro, sta.sh, the death of dAmn, the death of dA Gear, page redesign, logo change... I'm probably forgetting some, but yeah).What does your username mean?
It doesn't really mean anything. I got it when I was about six as a Club Penguin username. I was friends with a kid named Jordan and his username was Jordanwe (his last name didn't start with "we" so I don't know why he picked it) and he said I should pick "Paulwe" so it could be "like we're brothers" or something. He insist that's not how it happened but... anyway, I discovered that there it was rarely taken on websites and was only six letters so it stuck.Describe yourself in three words.
I know nothing.Are you left or right handed?
For sports and stuff, I'm ambidextrous. For writing and drawing, right handed, though as for the latter, it doesn't do me much good as I can't draw worth a crap. (see next question).What was your first deviation?
This piece of crap.What is your favourite type of art to create?
Poetry. Is that art? According to deviantART it's art.If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Painting. My brother is a great painter and it's infuriating because I can't do it at all. I mean I have painted some good stuff but it's all been abstract. My understanding of color, line, form, etc. is fine, but I can't even paint an apple without it looking like a two year old did it.What was your first favourite?
This fan made poster of my favourite movie of all time, Back to the Future. Also yes that is how you spell favourite in Canada.What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Photos. I don't really know why, but that's what my faves contain the most of, it seems.Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Uhh... In terms of artists
, as in people who make visual art, I'm gonna say three way tie between DeltaSquadProduction
. I can't really pick a favourite writer/poet on dA because I love so many of them, but SpiralingSpontaneity
comes to mind.If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
. I know already DeltaSquadProduction
in real life - actually, we go way
back.How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I can't really think of any instance where a deviant, like, literally changed my life in a big way in the context of dA stuff, but there are little things. DeltaSquadProduction
has obviously helped me out in a lot of ways, being one of my best friends for a long time, but other than her... I mean there are a lot of deviations that have really touched me and made me think. One that comes to mind is Sister XIV by LunaticStar
, which challenged my assumption that science fiction couldn't be emotional.What are your preferred tools to create art?
Well, in terms of photos, I use a Nikon D3000, which is a lovely camera (though I must say that the viewfinder image size is a bit small for manual focusing). Otherwise I don't really have preferred tools.What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Out in nature. I hate to sound like some kind of New-Agey pantheistic hippie, but if there is a God, they're a damn good artist. I can't help but be inspired in the shadow of such beauty.What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Helping to create Jolt-Of-Creativity with my friends. It was just such a wonderful feeling to be able to bring artists together like that.
