How long have you been on DeviantArt?
My profile says I've had my account for 8 years it's been a while.
What does your username mean?
Previously it was silenceunk0wn .....I took it from my AIM account name and then started using it on all my accounts (youtube and stuff) A friend helped me create my AIM account and I might have been the one to suggest it and she might have put in the number 0 in it...I don't remember. Silence is in it because I'm generally quiet/shy and although I would like to be extremely talkative and loud, I've come to terms that that's just the way I am and I'm ok with that.....still I can talk a lot if I'm into the conversation subject The unk0wn part comes from "unknown".....I just messed up when typing it and forgot the "n"
Last year I decided to change my account name. A friend would always make fun of my missing "n" , but I also felt it was time to change it. I decided to keep the "silence" part so it wouldn't be such a big change and just added the "M" because of my personal logo which I had already been placing on my drawings even when I was "silenceunk0wn," and then I added "art" because "MSilence" was already taken : MSilenceART
Describe yourself in three words.
Quet, Artistic, Inspired
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
My first deviation was fanart of Hinata of Naruto: And to this day I still sometimes make Naruto fanart
What is your favourite type of art to create?
My favorite type of art to create is realistic drawings. It's fun specially if I'm drawing an original character and if I manage to draw my character very realistic, it's cool how something that doesn't physically exist can look so real
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Manga and lineart style, I usually go the painter's way with just adding color and continue editing lines/edges. But really there are so many different art styles that would be cool to know how to make, like the very detailed doodled ink drawings , it amazes me how detailed those drawings are.
What was your first favourite?
My first favorite was a purple portrait of a pretty guy and it's not available on DA because the artist deleted her account. It is awesome how I ed that drawing, not knowing the artist, I wasn't even following the artist so I don't remember how I came across the drawing but, I favorited and even commented. Then I met the artist in my Japanese class at my University after I found out that she also draws and at that time had a DA account, I looked it up and to my surprise I saw the drawing that I first favorited in her gallery
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I like dark gothic, pretty/handsome guys, and fanart of my favorite shows and musicians.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I don't really have one, even if I was asked for a favorite artist in general I don't have one. I don't really follow an artist (unless it's music ) I just like drawings and art.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
It would be cool to meet anyone, and if it comes as a surprise is wonderful. It would probably be awesome to meet the people I usually talk to on here, the people who I've done small projects with and have been associated with my OCs
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
When I first made my account, I didn't know anyone here so I wasn't active and this was before groups were made, so the only ways to see art was through searches and stuff. So back then I wasn't very active, and as a shy person it's difficult to upload art for everyone to see where it could also be ignored or negative comments could be given. It was actually my in real life friend who I met at university (a different one from the one mentioned earlier) has an account here and was very active back then. She kind of inspired me to be more active on this site and so I started making more art works and uploading them here. And then groups were formed and it was more fun
What are your preferred tools to create art?
A computer and a tablet but paper and pencil are good as well, and also canvas, brushes and acrylic paints...but I guess I'm mainly a digital artist
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My room, it's where I have all my art stuff
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Probably the times when Aidyn and Deuphorious were active, all the artist participating in this OC band were active on DA and we would be writing about their personality and drawing them it was fun But that's life, I'm still drawing Aidyn ^^ Right now I have this one tiny 15pg sketchbook that I plan to fill with ink drawings of Aidyn There is no story to it, I'm just drawing random pictures of Aidyn: so far I have 3 finished ink drawings of Aidyn and a 4th one that still needs to be inked
