1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Since 2011? I had an account before that but I lost it eons ago. So we'll just say 2011.
2. What does your username mean?
Several things. The combination of Silverarte breaks down to Silver and Artemis. There's a lot of meaning in the name itself. First off is actually since highschool, I've read up on Greek Mythology and Latin. Artemis was always one of my favorites and a nickname for the classroom. Silver is not only one of my favorite metals, but Artemis's patron metal.
That and I used to use a saying a lot that meant 'The Silver Arrow Flies Quickly and True". It's been a while, so I'd have to look up the exact way it was written. At the time I thought it was pretty profound. Couldn't tell you why....
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Kind. Spacey. Loyal.
4. Are you left or right handed?
Right handed but I use my left hand pretty well.
5. What was your first deviation?
Oh gosh, is this something we even want to go over? And actually, it was a set of sketches that I now cringe to look at. I don't even have them anymore, but I was definitely proud at the time.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Whatever strikes my fancy really. I suppose the most frequent I do is drawing with either pencil on paper or using my tablet in a graphics program. Charcoal is my favorite of all time, but it's a little harder to get that to show up here.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
This one's hard because I'm trying really hard to better what I do now. That being said, I'd love to get much better at realistic drawing. And not just figures but inanimate objects like furniture but also landscapes as well.
8. What was your first favourite?
Oh boy. Well, it might be embarassing but this one.
My sister showed this to me and convinced me I should Deviantart. So, here I am!
can be a pest! (I say totally affectionately!)
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I like things that have a lot of color or just a lot of depth in them. I also really like watching improvement, so that's how I do it.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
One of my previous favorites has left Deviant, but of who is left? I'd have to say :Sio64:. Sio is just phenomenal. She's continued to really work hard with her Comic strip despite what the world throws at her.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
. I still talk to these two all the time and would just gush to meet them in person.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
If I ignore the obvious answers (such as my sister who really did do all of the below)), I'd have to say it's not just one but several who have been really influencial.
They really helped me figure out this place, but also were encouraging as I tried to improve along. They took the time at different points to explain the hows.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Charcoal. Dye (for fabric). Tablets, pencils, colored pencils, (computer....)
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
If I can find something quiet and serene, like when I sit outside or comfortable like a corner of my house with nothing going on, that's probably the best place for me. I get inspiration everywhere, but it's difficult to just sit and create at times. I take what I can get.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Art Trades Group. I'd say this was one of the best groups I was ever a part of and it died when I had to leave Deviant for a time. But there was something just outright amazing about getting a guaranteed Art Trade every single time. I love how people can come together for that kind of thing!#deviantartistquestionnaire
