Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1] How long have you been on DeviantART?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1] 
Seven years now! I can't believe it's been such a long time! DeviantART has really grown since I first joined.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1] What does your username mean?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1] 
It's an anagram of my first name, with an added 'X'. Back when I was obsessed with Kingdom Hearts, my sister created the name for my Organisation XIII character. I've used it ever since.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]Describe yourself in three words.Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Geek. Christian. Awkward.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]Are you left or right handed?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Right-handed! My left hand is (almost) useless in most things.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]What was your first deviation?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Unfortunately, I have no idea. I have deleted quite a few old deviations over the years during my 'spring cleaning'. This is the oldest piece I have in my gallery:

The Final ConfrontationAishi stepped off the loading ramp onto the cracked surface of Malachor V. She could sense Kreia's presence below her, deep within the planet's core. The end was drawing near – only one would survive their inevitable encounter – she was determined it would be her. A definite goal in mind, Aishi moved forward, memorising the route she took so in the event that a quick escape was required, she would be prepared.
It wasn't long before she encountered her first real threat: a storm beast. She remembered the ugly creatures well from the Mandalorian Wars, where she had been witness to so much death, the majority of it by her own hands. She pushed away all feelings of regret and focused on her current situation; the beast hadn't yet noticed her.
She knew it was only a matter of time.
Activating her lightsaber, she propelled forward with the Force and lunged at her adversary in one swift movement. Despite its size, it was quick to react and swatted her away as it would a minor annoya

I wish I hadn't deleted all of those other deviations. Horrible as they were, they demonstrated the progress I have made over the years.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]What is your favourite type of art to create?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Digital art! I love working with a graphic tablet to create art in Photoshop. I find I'm much better at it than I am with traditional means. I love the freedom of layers, and the countless array of brushes and settings to play with!

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
I would love a more relaxed, cartoonish style that I could sketch quickly and effectively. I find I am often too rigid with my brush strokes, and my art suffers for it. That, or a beautiful painterly semi-realistic style.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]What was your first favourite?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Again, I've gone through and cleared out some of my favourites over the years. I wouldn't know. This is the oldest one:
-- Tamaki to Antoinette -- by Kurama-chan

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
I'd say I lean towards digital art, especially character portraits. I love seeing other people's original characters, or characters from things that I like in different styles.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Ahh, I don't know! So many have entertained and inspired me over the years!

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]If you could meet anyone on DeviantART in person, who would it be?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Just one? Umm... theant4! (and KalmaStari, Nemonus & korikage-ookami...)

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
All of the people who take the time to leave feedback on my art have impacted on my life! And those who have made beautiful art of my characters, made me laugh and/or cry with their work... so many people have impacted me in so many different ways!

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]What are your preferred tools to create art?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
My Wacom Intuos 5 Touch and Photoshop CS5!

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Well, I'm mostly at my desk when I create art. Not really "inspirational", I guess, but whatever. I don't have a specific place.

Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]What is your favourite DeviantART memory?Misc Emoji-11 (Stars) [V1]
Any time someone has told me my art has inspired them, made them laugh, etc. I feel like I've accomplished something, and it's wonderful.

Gesture and Expression Practice: 0815 by Xephinetsa
Gesture and Expression Practice: 0815
A collection of gesture/expression sketches I've done lately (using this resource). It's been a really helpful exercise so far, and I will continue to do this sort of study to help to loosen and speed up my sketching process. And improve my grasp on anatomy. Thanks to korikage-ookami for the suggestions and resources.

Art belongs to me.
