Newest Deviations

First, I've fallen behind in replying to comments again, I try to answer any questions as they come in, but I might have missed some. Feel free to ask me anything in the comments!

Second, me and my sister came up with 100 Questions for Character Couples as writing prompts and exercises. I love things like this to get to know characters better! I thought I'd share in case any other storytellers might find it useful.

And Third, here is the questionnaire!

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
5 years on this account, though me and my sister shared an account at first and I don’t remember how long that was for.
In the Library by midenian-lostie The Silver Eye - I would die for... by lostie815

2. What does your username mean?
It means I am a huge fan of the TV show Lost! ...which is a little sad ‘cause as much as I love Lost, I’ve never felt too inclined to actually draw more than a few fanarts for it. I am fond of the nickname ‘Lostie’ I’ve get around here.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Christian, Messy, Workaholic.

4. Are you left or right handed?

5. What was your first deviation?
Oh no... :fear:
 Doors Closing by lostie815
Oh, ok. That wasn’t bad.

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Digital paintings of my characters. It’s more fun than drawing the comics and more meaningful to me than fanart/commishes.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Hmm, I think Glen Keane’s and then I’d try to translate that energy and expressiveness into my own style.
Tangled - Flynn Rider and Maximus by lostie815

8. What was your first favourite?
Lint Halloween 2008 by planussea
Still the best.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Mostly art by people I admire, type or quality of the art doesn’t matter too much. I’m more likely to favorite good art that represents Christianity, fanart for more obscure stories that don’t get a lot, or peoples' original characters. When I see someone is working on an original story, I try to be extra supportive about it.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Ugh, one is too painful. Here are a few: :iconveinsofmercury: :iconnicholaskole: :iconlightlybow: :iconbrightredrose: :iconturtle-arts: :icontheophilia:

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I don’t know, in person I'd probably hide in a corner and not say anything, but maybe :iconpsalmseven:, :iconyorinarpati:, or :iconplanussea:, they are so sweet and inspiring. :aww:

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
:iconspiritriver: and I were beta readers for a time with each others' stories, her advice was invaluable!

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wacom Intuos 4 for digital art, Canon Rebel t2i if we’re talking photography, watercolors if we’re talking traditional.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
On the couch in the sunroom (opposite corner from my desk), where I can be snuggly and look out all the windows.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Well, I just about had a heart attack when I saw I got a Daily Deviation, but I think my ~favorite~ memory would just be the whole The Silver Eye Fanart Contest from this year. It just blows my mind how many awesome and talented people read my story. That was so much fun, I will have to do it again sometime.
I've met super awesome people and had a great experience in the years on DeviantArt so far, may there be many more! Pumkin La by lostie815

Hey, I just finished binge reading The Silver Eye, and I SO love it! I wish there were more stories out there like it. (Medieval, violent, little to no swearing. Especially the swearing part.) Someday I'll draw you a Melly fanart, because I love her so much!

Ok, I have been meaning to ask you this. So I know Apen has some sort of markings on his back. Do you have any references that you used? or did you just come up with the design. I have a character in my book that has markings that start at her index finger, curl around her wrist, up her arm, and then onto her back and create a intricate design.

I just made it up (and someday I'd like to redesign them). If I were you, I would just look at a lot of tattoos and swirly designs, making a collection of designs that look cool to you. Then try and use your favorite elements from them to create your own thing.
