The deviations you find in my Favourite's are works that in some way or another managed to capture my attention, be it by their artistic value, techinical work or simply because they are based on a wonderful idea, no matter how simple they may be. My favourites usually describe what I'm into at the moment and I won't deny that there's a lot of FanArt in here. But I also appreciate the occasional "Original" Art.
If you see something that strikes your attention, please visit the artist who made it. What you see is only one part of their gallery. Who knows what else may be hidden amongst it?
Apparently for 8 years.
It comes from the Japanese word "Kotowari", which means "principle, reason, justice,..." When I heard the word first in a title of an OST song, I liked it for the sound, and later for the meaning. I'd grown tired from using "Mudkipblader" and was happy to switch to a new name. As "Kotowari" was already taken, I had to settle for a different spelling using the "-". I still like the original meaning of "Kotowari", but I like the plays of words/meanings that I found hidden in the word as well.
Describe yourself in three words.
Observant, headstrong, compassionate
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
Something beyblade related? I think it was a picture of Kai and a phoenix.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
I want to say fanart, of the fluffy OTP kind, but my favourite art is actually a mix between that and traditional painting (which I hardly do during the summer break).
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Realism that still holds visible signs of the medium created, not sleek and finished, but rough and suggestive.
What was your first favourite?
No idea... Something Beyblade related, or a nature photograph.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
(Fan)art that really speaks to me, bet in topic or how it's executed.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Just one? That is just cruel. I look up to these people for a variety of reasons, but they all touched me in one way or another.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Everyone that I have a good bond with online. I can only hope that feeling is mutual. :')
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Yes. Some of the people mentioned above have influenced me in how I art, be it in discovering new art tools, new techniques, or on a more personal level. I really did find some great friends on deviantart in these past 8 years.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wacom/ptSai, Acrylics on paper and although I don't use them as often copic markers and beading.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Besides the obvious answer that is my desk? Out in nature where I have time to spin my stories.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Winning my first premium membership, having many people show up in my livestreams, finding a community of great friends.
