Since everyone's doing this, why not me ?
Alright, let's begin
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
On my account, it says 7 years . 7 loveable years here
2.What does your username mean?
Well, I made “sprites” before like in videogames and I’m a girl, so: Sprite + Girl = SpriteGirl
3.Describe yourself in three words.
Cute, caring and sometimes a little bit weird
4.Are you left or right handed?
I’m a righty, while my twinsister is a lefty lol!
5.What was your first deviation?
A drawing about Taismo spritegirl.deviantart.com/art/…
First Sprite/pixel work is this spritegirl.deviantart.com/art/…
Man those are so old
6.What is your favourite type of art to create?
I used to work on sprites, but I decided a few years back to change my style, but wanted to keep the program Paint to work on. So this is how I draw things on paper, then scan it and work with Paint, and I feel better to practice more on drawing than on sprites. Not that I’m saying I never liked to make sprites, it’s the opposite, I loved doing it, but I wanted to take a different direction with the same “sprite” style of the program Paint. It also felt like it wasn’t “mine” since I used parts that already exist from someone else, so I wanted to create things that I can say: “That’s me.”
7.If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
That would be fully Pkm-style, just love how they make their heads and hair, and on Pkm is amazing how they draw it. I still need practice
8.What was your first favourite?
That would be this theblox.deviantart.com/art/Tai…
It was also the very first time I’ve read a homemade fanfic before and the first time that I ever heard of what a fanfic is
9.What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I like most on art that can surprise me, a style that I haven’t seen before, also cute and very colourful ^^
But a top favourite, not really
10.Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I got plenty of favourite DA artists, too many to mention, but here’s a few =^-^=
11.If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
THIS GUY!!!!! Best buddy ever!!! I’m planning to do it someday, only need to plan it all out with the plane tickets and hotel, since he lives in America and me in Belgium
Who knows…. Next year?
12.How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Well, one of the most impacted deviant (that I never forgotten) was a young man named “Frank Brolly”. He was 14 when I was for a year here in Da, so I was 20-21 years. We had great connections on MSN, but then there was the day that his girlfriend told me that he was gone…. For good. She told me that he was held by a thief and he was ordered to give him his wallet. The thief let him run, but shot him anyway into his back.
So that was heartbreaking whe she brought that to me. I may never knew him in real life, but it was from a very few that I shred tears over someone that I never met.
She also told me that she was pregnant of him. She knew that it was a girl and that she would call it after me. I was touched by that, and only that I gave this young man hope and joy by just talking through a computer connection. Later one, she kept contact with me and told me that she mentioned me before in court, “a reason why Frank should’ve lived on.” After that, the thief has been executed.
Honestly, I miss that girl and I wonder what became of her and her kid after this all. We told each other goodbye… but still I wonder how she’s doing…
Back then, I’ve learned that I should enjoy life every day like it’s my last. And by internet-connection, you’re a lot closer to the people you care about, even it’s an ocean away =3
13.What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencil, thin marker and wiper for the drawings, scanner for scanning (duh!) and the program Paint for the colouration.
14.What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I get the most ideas during work, I write down the ideas on paper and stuff it into my pocket, for later. I create art when I’m home in my couch or during my lunchtime at work.
15.What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I got several fav Da Memories.
1: The memory where I completed my first long Deviantion Spritesheet of Cosmo, the Seedrian, and celebration of 10.000 pageviews on that same moment.
2: Meeting Joseph aka dragontamer272 on Da. We got in contact in 2008-2009 on Da because of us being fans of Taismo, liking each other art of sprites and pixels. In 2010, we started to chat, brought us closer and led us to this undying friendship
3: How I got 50.000 pageviews. I was waiting…. And waiting…. And waiting for an hour long to get one little pageview and it was during past time for bed Lol!
4: I started recently my own Pkm Nuzlocke
