MY DEVIANTART QUESTIONNAIRE ANSWERS

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 1, 2015, 9:01 AM
I was tagged by simpleCOMICS Astrikos and woohooligan so it behooves me to actually do the thing :XD:

1) How long have you been on DeviantArt?
        
7 years! I've been deviously deviant since Jan 21, 2008 

2) What does your username mean?
       
My username was actually picked out for me by my brother 4 years prior to me joining dA when I was setting up a Runescape account. Ten years later I still play Runescape (make fun of me all you want, I love that game), and I am still Xadrea :D

3) Describe yourself in three words.
        
Short. A cupcake. Kitties. 

4) Are you left or right handed?
        
Righty tighty. 

5) What was your first deviation? 
 
 Kimono by Xadrea OOF

6) What is your favourite type of art to create? 
        
Mixed media watercolors weeeeeeeeeeee

7) If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? 
        
Printmaking yo. Printmakers are AWESOME. 

8) What was your first favourite? 
   
Rainbows in Space: a wallpaper by evil-goma

9) What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? 
        
Can't really say, my faves folders are essentially a catch all of massively different artworks!

10) Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? 
        SUCH A MEAN QUESTION.
But if I absolutely had to pinpoint one deviant that I have admired from the beginning it is without question loish

11) If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? 
 
In no particular order: 
FlashyFashionFraud fr33z3dry scenefag TheCreativeJenn namenotrequired simpleCOMICS AngelMiyoko woohooligan hankinstein ArcNeoMasato TimberClipse Moonbeam13 and many more that I cannot get my brain to squirt out for the time being...but they shall be added in due course!

12) How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
   
Oh, most of the people in the above list have impacted my life for the better with their limitless enthusiasm, encouragement, and overall big heartedness! 

13) What are your preferred tools to create art?
     
My watercolor pan, a flat brush, and a spray bottle full of water!

14) What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
 
Typically anywhere that I can concentrate for a decent amount of time. That place can be anywhere as long as I can concentrate for at least 30 minutes without interruption.

15) What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
        
:iconwinningisforlosers: mang. I met almost all my dA budsies through WIFL and I have Jason ( simpleCOMICS ) to thank for that!

Hi I'm Mellissa and I'm 26. I have an MFA in painting from the Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University (2015). I have a BFA in painting and drawing (art history minor) from the University of Akron (2012). I'm an illustrator and freelance artist ^ ^My favorite color is pink, and I think muffins are the cutest food ever!

Besides painting, I love printmaking and I plan on eventually owning a silkscreen to produce prints outside of the studio!
Lastly, I block trolls and overall mean people, so be warned! ;)

Since I wouldn't have been able to do some birthday muro drawings, I got two extra drawing copies, so...
SURPRISE;
Believe it or not, two birthday muro drawing copies I made, of chibi Haruhi Suzumiya and Mikuru Asahina wishing you one, so, wishes 'n' luck!

I've recently hurt a very dear friend by forgetting their birthday. I shall not do the same to you, Ms. X ^^

Happy Birthday! I hope things are going well for you these days :party:
