DA Starters 79 - not-important-at-all

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 27, 2015, 6:42 PM
:iconall-about-features:



:fellalovesgroups: Let's welcome another DA starter! I love deviantART!


:iconnot-important-at-all:


    Hi! Please introduce yourself. What are your interests?

Hi! I'm Kristina, 21, from Serbia (in Europe). I study English language and literature and art is, well, a hobby of mine, something I really enjoy doing.

Apart from drawing, I also love reading books (I study languages, so it kinda comes with the territory, right? xD But I enjoy it anyways ^^). Let's see...I watch series and anime and read manga :) (Smile) But most of all, I guess, I love travelling La la la la

Self-Portrait by not-important-at-all

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

I searched for sites where I could share my art and get some feedback, and apparently, DA is the most popular among those, so here I am xD Honestly, I didn't think I'd last much long on the site, I just wanted to see what it's like, so I put zero thought into my username, and now that I'm totally hooked, I regret using this username xD
 

    How would you describe your art style?

Hm, my style... First off, I'm a traditional artist, although I'm trying to get more into digital art. Normally, I draw using pencils, and my art is heavily based on anime style, like so:
Mikasa by not-important-at-all
When I color, I use pastel colors:
A Couple by not-important-at-all
Apart from this cartoon-like style, I also did some realistic drawings, such as this one:
Tiger by not-important-at-all

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

I drew ever since I can remember basically. I took up some art classes when I was, say, 10-11, but I don't think it's taught me much, so I like to think of myself as a self-taught artist xD Anyway, during my years in high school and first couple of years at the uni, I literally didn't draw at all, and I decided to go back to drawing only recently, so, yeah, I'm kinda rusty Sweating a little... As for the ambitions, I said it earlier, this is only my hobby, and as much as I love doing this, I've decided to pursue my career elsewhere :) (Smile) This, however, doesn't mean I don't plan on improving :D (Big Grin)

Although I appreciate classical art very much, you might have noticed that chiefly cartoons and anime had a real impact on my style Sweating a little...

    We love funfacts - Do you have any for us?

Alright, here's one connected to my drawing: Back in high school, I always had a top grade in biology because I drew bacteria and other such organisms on the board; I never had to do a single test :D (Big Grin)

    What is your least favourite thing to draw and why?

I don't like drawing landscapes... I'm extremely detail-oriented, and there's very little you can do about fine details on a drawing of mountains and skies Wink/Razz I love it when other people do it, don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against landscapes, I just don't like drawing them myself :) (Smile)

    Do you have any skills you are famous/popular for?

Special skills, huh? Nothing comes to mind, I don't think I'm famous for anything xD That's reminds me tho, I could really find something to call my 'signature' in my art.... Yup, I think I'll work on that :D (Big Grin)

    Does your direct environment (family, friends, etc.) know about your artistic side?

Yeah, but I don't really go around showing them my stuff, they have seen very little of what I did, and besides, I don't like people watching me draw, don't know why, it's kind of a personal thing for me Sweating a little...

    What inspires you usually?

People... People I see on the bus, or on the street, weird people, strange people, characters form TV shows and books... :D (Big Grin)

Innocence (Colored) by not-important-at-all

    Would you like to introduce us to one or two idols you have meet on DA?

There are really so many artists here that I like, but unfortunately, no one in particular comes to mind... I mean, I still didn't get enough time to really explore the site and find people whom I'd admire, so I'd have to get back to you on that one once I really start discovering for real :D (Big Grin)

    Any closuring phrase, quote or artists you would like to promote?

I posted a quote here on DA a couple of weeks back, and it's one of my favorites of all times, so I'm gonna go with that (you might know it): "If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer." by H.D. Thoreau

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

I love drawing people. Why? Probably because you can show character and emotion, and, as I said, people inspire me :) (Smile) But I also enjoy drawing animals sometimes, because they're, well, beautiful xD

I'd like to thank you for this amaaaazing opportunity and to say that I'm very honored ^^ And I'd also like to apologize for the super late reply, you know how it is, university and tests and assignments and stuff, didn't get to spend much time on DA these days :( (Sad)

Thank you so much once again Love Cheers!

Illumination, Revelation, Life by not-important-at-all


We hope that you'll enjoy your stay here!


Have a lovely day! Hi!
