  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    Twelve years. Since January, 2003.
  2. What does your username mean?
    It's my internet alias and/or nickname.
  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Odd. Odder. Oddest.
  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Technically ambidextrous - but I am right handed for illustration.
  5. What was your first deviation?
    Since I joined DA right after new years; I uploaded an illustration I did for my webcomic celebrating the year of the ram.
    [It's quite terrifying to go back and see an illustration that you've drawn over... gosh, thirteen years ago?]

  6. What is your favorite type of art to create?
    Traditional illustration, working in pencil or inks. Coloring method is my trusty Dr. Martin Dyes.
  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    I would never want to instantly master anything - it takes the fun out of learning... ^w^;;
  8. What was your first favorite?
    It looks like the actual original first favorite was either removed/deleted etc.
    But the earliest one cataloged is by my dear friend, Dezy!
    Okami Amaterasu by Dezfezable
  9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
    I tend to fave things that are eye catching to me and intriguing for my senses.
    Also I am not a spam-favoriter... so even though I may like a lot of illustrations and works, I may not always +fav every single thing I like.
  10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
    I know this is a bullshit answer but there are too many terrific artists to figure out a single favorite.
    [Especially since they're all of varying technical degree's and ability.]
  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    Hmm, I'm not the type to pine to meet someone. So I'll just say noone in particular. XD
  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    Every deviant that has +faved or followed me puts a smile on my face!
  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Traditional: my trusty Pucca mechanical pencil equipped with 4B lead, croquil/drafting nibs, inks, watercolors, Dr. Martin Dyes.
    Digital: Tablet [Wacom Intuos 4 Medium], Paint Tool Sai.
    Hand-made: Crochet, sewing-by-hand, textiles in general.
  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    I never seek an inspirational place - I can pretty much work anywhere.
    Doesn't need to be special. Heh.
  15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
    Memory? Hmm... when I got my first Daily Deviation?
    It was my 200th deviation, and I whipped up a drawing of 200 of my original characters.
    Twas' fun to work on, and it was nice and someone thought it was cool enough to suggest it! Hehe.
    200th Deviaton- 200 Characters by karniz
    Naturally, since this illustration was drawn back in 2008 there definitely are many many more original characters.
    [I'd take a guess that there's at least a good 300 or more by now. Damn me and my hyperactive story-driven mind.]

So yeah, hope this was intriguing for some of you guys to read. Hehe~

Concerning Commissions:


Commissions are CLOSED!
Thank you all for your interest~

I have to add this because the question is becoming quite common:
Please refrain from asking me "When are you going to be open again for commissions?"
Because the answer is a loaded one. It could be a week, hell, it could be a month!

The time it takes to work on illustrations matter on the pace of communication between the commissioner's and myself.
So I cannot give a time frame as to when they'll be open again. It's not humanely possible.

The best thing for YOU to do is to keep an eye on my Tumblr/Twitter/deviantART accounts to when I post that I'm open again.
[More often than not, I tweet a day or two ahead of time giving a timeframe as to when I *will* reopen. I've done it twice already.]

And no, there is no waiting list nor am I taking names for a waiting list.

Please refer to the site for more information.
Thanks everyone!

[I pretty much post a drawing every day. And about 95% of the art never get's posted to my deviantART!]

Hehe, no, I haven't!
Those are very very cool... and eeeevil.
Eeeeevil and delicious! ♥

And about the comic - I sustained an injury to my right wrist so drawing has been very very painful lately...
I'm trying to ease myself back to drawing but trying not to make the injury worse. -_-;;
