O king of realms of endless joy,
My own, my golden grocer's boy,

I am a princess forced to dwell
Within a lonely kitchen cell,

While you go dashing through the land
With loveliness on every hand.

from Servant Girl and Grocer's Boy, by Joyce Kilmer

DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 8, 2015, 2:56 PM

Decided to try the deviantART journal questionnaire in commemoration of their 15th birthday. So if you've always wondered about something or just like to read more about me, you can also treat this as a FAQ :) 

How long have you been on DeviantArt?

According to my info, I've been a member on this site since March 4th, 2007. At the time, I joined the site after a recommendation of a friend I made on Youtube, but I haven't actively used this account until after two years later. 

What does your username mean?

AngelsArcher, or rather Angel's Archer, is a wordplay on Archangel. Way back in elementary school, I had an OC who was a girl clad in black robes with angel wings. She was also an archer, thus AngelsArcher. Other usernames I have used were Pixelity (a mix of my first name and Pixel), when I used to be in the pixelart scene; Riyani, a nickname version of my middle name which I primarily use in the cosplay scene; or Xolani, if Riyani is already taken (Xolani is actually a name I use in games). Sometimes I wonder if I should change my username to something more recent and updated, but it's also something that's stuck for so long I don't want to change it... 

Describe yourself in three words.

"Art is drugs." Or "retarded cat-obsessed gamer". 

Are you left or right handed?

Right handed. 

What was your first deviation?

I have no idea and I'm not sure if it's even on deviantart anymore (had a major cleanup in the meantime). And some of them are in storage. But these are a few of the first things I posted on here which are still public.

 BLEACH: Rotten wood by AngelsArcher S.crapbook 1 by AngelsArcher

What is your favourite type of art to create?

Tough question. Over the years I've tried a lot of different branches of art. Used to be into (crappy) photography, but I was also an avid pixel artist. In the meantime I was also slowly working on my drawing skills, which slowly transitioned from traditional pieces to digital pieces. But at the moment the most dominant type is cosplay. It is like I'm using myself as a canvas instead, hence the name of my art portfolio Change of Canvas
So even though I enjoy cosplay the most now, in the background I was still doing a bit of drawing and my interest for photography has grown again. As soon as I can buy some new lenses I will focus more on photography and filming. 

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

The art of versatility. 

What was your first favourite?

Redemption by zemotion 

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

Cosplay, Photography and Digital Art.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

That's a reaaaally hard question. I'm bad at picking favourites. I'm afraid I cannot answer.

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

Anyone who falls under the previous question. Fun fact, my friend Anne1392 once hosted a deviantart meetup for Dutch artists. 

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Along with work in progresses of their art, artists on deviantart also - albeit unconsciously - show WIP of their lives. It's amazing to see fellow artists grow through the years. I take those people as inspiration, both for art and how I want to live my life. 

What are your preferred tools to create art?

Either my sewing machine or my wacom tablet. 

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

Imagination Land! Or if I need a real place... probably Japan. It's got everything; modern skyline, tranquil nature, outrageos fashion, but also rich traditional folklore and stuff.. 

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

The moment I got my first llama.
