DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Sat Aug 8, 2015, 11:02 PM

How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Almost 10 years! I remember the day I joined and made my first moody, pre-teenish username and used the journal to bitch and update about things no one read or cared about. The good-ole’ days.


What does your username mean?

I wanted a memorable word and played with a lot of different ones. I ended up wanting something with a “calm” feeling and then I read the definition for Calmality on Urban Dictionary (the most scientific of sources) and it said “one word describing an event, the meaning follows - "when the calm evening wind breaks the the absolute silence and tranquility left in the wake of total devastation, restoring an awkward peace to the scarred land" and I loved it.


Describe yourself in three words.

Introverted, calm, independent


Are you left or right handed?

Righty


What was your first deviation?

I’ve since deleted my first deviation (it was a watercolor painting of an eagle from when I was about 14) but this is my earliest shown

Senshi by Calmality


What is your favourite type of art to create?

Illustrative work. Something that tells a story and/or transports the viewer somewhere else. Magical, soul-entrancing art.



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

Digital. I’m working on it. Some people are just gurus of lighting and tones and I bow to their skill.



What was your first favourite?

I was on a Shaman King streak :D

Asakura family by fungafufu



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

Illustrations in general. Something breathtaking, imaginative, and tells a story.



Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Way too many to choose just one! So take a look at these guys. Any of them could easily be my fav.

pettryb Uuju blix-it mynameistran ELK64 yanadhyana s-u-w-i Maaot tir-ri


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

I have been such a terrible friend ugh. I used to spend so much more time on DA but now I’m all over the place, but I still remember people who are super awesome like Kettlehead and RiseDarkMoon or any of the artists I look up to really (see previous question) and I’d love to get together to talk some art!


How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

I’ve been absolutely impacted. I’ve made many awesome, talented friends who have inspired and pushed me to get better. I still remember a handful of incredible comments I’ve gotten that make me remember why I love making art so much. I also met my employer through DA and that altered my life quite a bit :D


What are your preferred tools to create art?

Watercolor, ink, photoshop


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

My studio. Even better if it’s clean and I have a cup of tea.


What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Probably the first time I got a DD. I was so shocked and honored. It felt like I really accomplished something and hit some sort of milestone.


Happy birthday DA! It feels like a birthday for me at almost a decade. Thanks for giving us such an inspiration art community! :dalove:

My first children's book that I illustrated was published in December so please check it out if you're interested! I'm very excited and it's so rewarding to see a final product. If you're looking for any gifts for a child ages 2-7, look no further. Perfect for beginner readers! :D

My name is Faryn and I live in the tundra that is Minnesota. I’m a recent college grad currently working as a freelance illustrator trying to secure my dream job in art. I enjoy tea on an obsessive level, Florence + the Machine songs, working insanely hard to have time to do nothing, and the company of my two very fluffy cats, Cash and Finnegan. I love to meet new artists and gain friends who share and appreciate this passion so feel free to chat with me. Thanks for stopping by! :shamrock:

Your artwork is beautiful in all measures of the word. In my search for art that should exist, for art that will continue to exist as "pretty good" fades through time into the forgotten, I have no doubts about yours. Your style and quality deserve to be remembered, and reviewed again and again and again. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Like most of artist in the world you are a magician in all meanings of this word that exist now. But your magic is special and I still cannot find words to explain it and I hope this inartificial, cursory comment will somehow show my mood.
When I saw your works I feel homish cosiness, like I'm sitting alongside the fireplace and having my cup of hot chocolate. :)
Your magic is warm (because of colors you're using I suppose) and I think I'm not alone here who's now following you because always want to come back and feel that warmth again. :)
Thanks a lot for what you're doing!
Good luck and a lot of inspiration to you! =^^=

You art is so relaxing :heart: But I guess that's just the power of watercolor. That medium makes me so nervous ironically XD
