It's a shame how much good art there is available that will never make it into group galleries due to inactive users. 

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 13, 2015, 3:06 AM
If I spend 8hrs per day on Uni and 8hrs per day on sleeping (in theory), then of the remaining 8hrs:
-2 is for anime'
-2 is for gaming
-2 is for random trawling (upkeep, really) of social sites like facebook, gaiaonline, dA, etc.
-2 is for random other stuff I need to do like shopping or just general walking time

Where do I do art?

-With spare money I could cut my sleep back to 6hrs per night in combination with higher uptake of caffeine
-I could cut back anime' but then my life would be pretty much 100% void of humour, and that leads to bad things
-I could cut back gaming, but lets be real, who has the willpower to do so, especially when you haven't caught them all yet
-I could cut Internet trawling back and risk missing out about interesting world events or even local ones (people don't call to invite you to events anymore)

On top of this passion to be able to produce art more regularly, I also really need to be making use of the free psyc' database access I have through my school and get reading any and every research paper I can in my leisure time to load more appropriate knowledge into my head.

I'm thinking some hobbies are going to have to be halved or traded-out all-together. 

  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: Protomech - Fear Factory
  • Drinking: Coffee
Oh sifting through 8,000+ notifications is depressing. Should really keep on that each week.
Hoping to get the necessary permissions to merge these two together for my next piece of art (and first proper art for the year... wow).

Permissions allowing; I'll be taking a traditional approach to the sketch and inking, then I'll add an accent colour digitally (or do a sheet of all different colour variants depending on time constraints). #notsureifanyonereadsthese

DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 5:06 PM
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Apparently 4yrs. I've used dA for about 7 or 8 though. Anonymously for a long time, and possibly under a pseudonym account for a year or so initially before I got comfortable on the Internet.

What does your username mean?
It's uh.. my actual name. My old pseudonym 'Brazekool' was the first character I ever wrote in a story, when I was 12, I think. My new pseudonym, which I include subtitled on my profile here and is my new online handle 'Forest-Green' will be understood by most anime fans, it's from 'Psycho-Pass' and describes having a clouded mind.

Describe yourself in three words.
Unabated. Trite. Quirky. 

Are you left or right handed?
Right. Have trained myself to use left for a lot of things though to lessen the burden in case I ever loose my right.

What was your first deviation?
Probably this. I know at some point I deleted some of my older stuff, and moved most of it to scraps, so all the upload dates got fucked.
Brazekool the 1st. by NICHOLAS-MARK-AMOS

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Traditional, drawing. I don't mind digitally-colouring my drawings either, I'm just not efficient enough to make it viable. 

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital drawing / painting. Only to increase the longevity of my drawings and reduce the risk of spilling coffee on them late at night.

What was your first favourite?
It's in storage. But this was close to the first. I was fascinated by people who could make quite humble sketches in books look like finished art. A talent I wish I always had, for whatever purpose that would serve.

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Traditional drawing. At one time it was all I was adding to my collections. I wanted to build collections to show traditional artists what was physically possible. Much like how an aspiring model may prefer to learn from spontaneous photography rather than magazine covers.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I consider Alex Ross to hold the most skill relevant to my interests, but I consider Katsushika Hokusai to have had the most admirable influence on the art world and has a cool story.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
The staff. Oh how I would give yous all a serve about your support department, if you even have one.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Called 365-Days-Of-Doodles when I met them, but now goes by Picolo-Kun(?), probably inspired me the most as far as their influence specifically in this space. They were motivated, persistent, and increasingly brilliant. I hoped to be able to take on the same challenge one day to relax my mind a bit, but I'm not there yet with the self-discipline. 

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Mechanical pencils, brush-tip markers.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Probably the high-school art room years ago, where there are many others all doing different art and if you ever got uninspired you could just walk around the room and strike up conversation with the artists doing stuff you were interested in about their ideas. Once you're on your own it's difficult to recreate that experience, but I will have a dedicated art-room someday. My bedroom / study-room isn't a very inspiring place to create art.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Honestly I haven't had many. It's been a a lot of effort with little returns. But I guess the most outstanding moments were being given permission to colour (butcher?) some of my favourite traditional (comic) linework. I did enjoy that, even if I didn't finish half of them. Edit. Actually it was pretty good when AutoDesk people came to dA, ever since they've been trying to motivate art-creation with monthly themes and whatnot, something that dA staff as a collective aren't bothering to do.
