Celebration

There have been quite a lot of changes on DeviantArt recently. Some good, some bad, some unbelievably sad, but today is our birthday and I'm gonna party like it's 1999!

Below are my answers to the question meme about my account and my time here. You should totally copy them from the official birthday article and make your own! Speaking of the official birthday article, don't forget to comment on it so you get your much coveted 15th BirthDAy badge! I don't wanna hear you complaining in the helpdesk that you didn't get yours. ;)

Questionnaire


  • How long have you been on DeviantArt?

    I was a cruiser and desktop stealer from late 2000/early 2001 but finally took the plunge and created an account on Sep. 23, 2003! It's almost my accounts 12th birthday!

  • What does your username mean?

    My username is named after the voice actor for Pikachu from the cartoon series Pokémon; Ikue Ōtani. When pokémon first came out I was obsessed and my folks bought me a themed calendar and I noticed her birthday linked up with a special day of my own so I adopted it as my online handle. You'll find me across the www with the handle ikue or pikachu or some combination of the two.

  • Describe yourself in three words.

    I choose you!

  • Are you left or right handed?

    When I was little I would write with my left hand but in primary school they literally beat it out of me. I'm a righty now, and can't even fathom how to write with my left.

  • What was your first deviation?

    A desktop wallpaper I made based on a tutorial I found to teach myself Photoshop.

  • What is your favourite type of art to create?

    My favourite type of art to make is always the next piece I'm going to create. I honestly don't like to be bogged down by genre when it comes to art. There are so many different kinds and ways to make it, I just like to see where the inspiration takes me. Right now it's baking. Yesterday it was photomanips. Tomorrow it could be anything!

  • If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

    Calligraphy/Typography. I love to dabble, but just don't have the time to practice!

  • What was your first favourite?

    It seems that the deviant that posted my very first fav has since removed it, but my next oldest is My Angel by: klassikalfreak

  • What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    Probably digital art.More specifically Vector.

  • Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

    Oh man… that's an impossible question to answer! It depends on what I'm in the mood for that day. There are so many varied artists that make me squeal in delight every time one of their masterpieces graces my notifications centre I truly can't decide.

  • If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

    Athos-of-Light, kaotickell, shebid, and anyone else who would like to meet! I've been blessed to check off a lot of names from my need to meet list, but there is always room for more.

  • How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

    So many of you have taught me that it's okay not to fit it. That I could stray from the norm and still be loved and that I will always cherish.

  • What are your preferred tools to create art?

    Illustrator, Photoshop, Ballpoint Pen, HTML, CSS, Camera, Cooking Ingredients, whatever else I can get my hands on!

  • What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

    The internet! Working from home I don't get out much, so it's nice to have an enormous source of inspiration just a click away.

  • What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

    There are so many but one of my most vivid is from the Vector Week program I ran for projecteducate waaaay back in July of 2008. I met some of the most amazing people and shared my favourite art style at the time with some of the best artists in that genre. We talked for countless hours about art and nothing at all and formed a bond I don't think will ever be broken. It was educational for me in so many ways more than just what vector art really was. It's so hard to put into words… I just love everything about that week, even the crappy setbacks and arguments. It was such an amazing rollercoaster.

Hello! How are you? :) 
I have a question. :) Who chooses what goes on the "undiscovered" page and what exactly is the page? Because my journal got there on Sunday, and I feel proud for some reason. Thank you! :) Also after a year and 8 months, I finally reached a Golden Llama! Sorry, I'm a bit over-exited about these recent happenings. :D

You may wanna read over the following blog post for information about Undiscovered. :D

You're doing way better than me on the llama front! I've been collecting for 5 years and have only hit the King llama. :giggle:

I'm afraid I don't handle cases such as this. I assure you your ticket will be handled just as soon as an agent from the CEA department is available and can review the case. Your patience is appreciated. 

In the mean time I would strongly suggest that you block that user and encourage your friends to do so also so they can no longer contact you. FAQ #96: Can I block people from interacting with me?
