How long have you been on DeviantArt? Almost 3 years now, I joined in November 2012. How times flies....
What does your username mean? Well, I wanted 'inkyfingers' as my fingers are always covered in ink from either my writing or drawing, but that was already taken so I went for my favourite flower and my favourite media combined.
Describe yourself in three words. Passionate, introverted, teaholic
Are you left or right handed? Right handed and clumsy at that lol.
What is your favourite type of art to create? Either historical OC art or fairytale/storybook illustration
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? I would love to be able to sew costumes
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Again either historical stuff or fairytale art
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Hmmm...too many to name lol
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? (always!) plus these other amazing people who have become my DA friends and supporters. Their encouragement has meant so much to me during these last few difficult years. Without their support and lovely comments, I wouldn't have pushed myself to keep on drawing and painting and writing. I owe them a lot. *hugsallround* (in no particular order)
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? obviously! I still can't believe that such a ridiculously talented artist, oc creator and writer wants to work on collab projects with a scatter-brained amateur like me! We've had a lot of laughs over the last few years and I'm so proud of our projects: Castle of Silk, Alverdale Tangle (and coming soon) Afterworld! We have a lot of silly jokes about our characters and when we match-make couples from our various stories, they always end up being a surprisingly good couple- seriously folks, it's spooky! I always look forward to reading her messages, notes, chapters etc or getting her art in the mail (which I keep in a special folder away from the damp and the cobwebs.) Anyway....I've probably embarrassed her enough so I'll stop now...
What are your preferred tools to create art? Pencils, outlining pens, copic and pro markers
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Umm....it depends on my mood, but probably my room- a different kind of chaos in our house- listening to playlists, I have different genres depending on what I'm creating. A lot of the time I balance my laptop/sketchbook on my window ledge- which is massive- and work whilst watching the view.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Soooo hard to pick one....umm....I have a few: First of all: when people started reading the mystery cases of 'Hat Trick Detective'. The feedback was incredibly possible and it encouraged me enough to take it seriously for publishing it. Am still editing it, but the end is in sight. Plus having Hat Trick fans has led to its own fan group here on DA and several contests which have been great fun to judge. Secondly: when first agreed to work on a collab project with me and when suggested we do a collab project. I was literally jumping up and down with excitement! Thirdly: the lovely birthday/Christmas pressies that I get from people. I treasure them a lot so thank you again! Fourthly: when I was having serious troubles at work so much so that I had to quit and needed emergency cash and so offered commissions and generously held a raffle and offered to pay for two of them. Her generosity left me in tears. People were so generous and supportive, it really helped me get through a nightmarish time in my life. The money went towards travel and my savings, which have seen me through the last few difficult months of unemployment. I saved this one until last because it's the memory that means the most. Thanks again sorry for getting sentimental on you again *manfully holds back from hugging you*
