55 DA Starters | U-rn

Sat Oct 18, 2014, 5:00 AM

:fellalovesgroups: Let's welcome another dA-Starter! I love deviantART! 


Hi U-rn! Hi! Please introduce yourself, what are your interests?

Heloo, my name is Alice Lam. Senior year in high school is coming up so fast!

I'm very intrigued by the topic of coding/software development. Freshmen year was when I found the career I wanted to pursue in my future. But it wasn't until recently that I began to dive into it - all thanks for dA Heart

Could you tell us a bit about how you got involved into art and if you have any goals as an artist?

In my last semester of junior year in high school, I took a painting class that exposed me to still life and water colors.
Assignment: Real Fantasy by U-rn That pine cone doe o/ by U-rn

Art isn't my strongest, but I'm a perfectionists Giggle I would spend so many hours sitting in front of my painting just to stare at it. IT NEEDS TO BE PERFECT.
These two paintings are actually the only pieces of art I've created.

On the other hand, there aren't any classes in my school that teaches students the many languages of programming. That's why I explored more into Deviant because it was an opportunity for me to learn. PLUS, there's a community of people that's willing to teach others. I was so excited.

Currently, I'm learning html/css through Deviantart and some other sites that are absolutely AMAZING for beginners.

How did you find Deviantart and how did you decide on your username?

K-au. She is the one who introduced Deviantart to me. K-au knew I had a very strong interest in programming. So she told me one day.

For my username, it's an inside joke. Formally, I'm Urmei, a username I created a very long time ago for a game called Dream of Mirrors Online(DOMO) :D (Big Grin) As for U-rn, the first three letters of Urmei reminds K-au of an urn. She also wanted me to twin with her. So U-rn it is.

How would you describe your art style?

I enjoy water coloring the most out of all the other styles. If I were to be a committed artist, I think these examples would represent my color pallet.

Please introduce one or more source(s) of inspiration and motivation (artists, works…) for you.

SimplySilent makes such amazing work. She's so inspiring to me because of how much commitment she puts into all her creations and the community. I've learned so much from her tutorials.

GillianIvy was the first to give me some advice out of the blue :giggles: I was just amazed of how much she knew about CSS journals, and how she's willing to help anyone. I'm so dependent on her. K-au understands my level of dependence Nod

K-au. Without her, I wouldn't be here right now. I really rely on her for support when I create something new, and it's so powerful how a bit of support can turn into inspiration. Also, her work is too pro.

We love funfacts - Do you have any for us?

- Are there any skills you would kill for?
I would actually kill to know everything related to software development/web designing .. @.@

- Does your direct environment (family, friends etc.) know about your artistic side?)
My family knows, but it's extremely hard to explain to them what I exactly do.

Thank you very much for the interview! Is there anything you’d like to say as we close up?

I want to start a portfolio for college so I went out the other day to collect pretty notebooks and binders. La la la la I'm very excited to get started and see how far I can go.

Thank you very much for giving me this interview! I found it fun answering these questions. I'm always online so send me a note if you have any questions!

Thanks for the invite, but I'm afraid I have to decline because I'm already having a difficult time keeping up with my message center =)
