How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Wow, I have been on here for 12 years.
What does your username mean?
It means "plum blossom" in Chinese. I randomly chose it because the username I wanted was taken (and that person has been inactive for a loooong time too ). It is the name of a song by Teresa Teng, who I loved when I was little.
Describe yourself in three words.
Procrastinator, caring, artistic
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
Neopets art - I uploaded it in 2003 and then forgot about DeviantArt for a couple of years. Lol. For some reason the thumbnail doesn't even work - is it too old??? Click here.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Realistic digital paintings, but unfortunately it takes too much time, so I guess my second favorite is cutesy doodles.
In terms of photography, my favorite subject is far and away BIRDS.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Paper cutting! It is at once 3D and 2D.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
That's tough. I have been inactive on DA for so long that I am no longer sure who else is still here or what they're even up to. Some favorites from when I was more active include Coelasquid, Jamie-MacArthur, yuumei, Photosbykev, and FForns.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
More of my fellow Birds-Club admin! I've already met mydigitalmind and SageKorppi in person - would love to meet DeeOtter and Shadow-and-Flame-86!
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Photosbykev was very patient with me when I first started out with wildlife photography and he gave me lots of great tips for shooting and editing. I really appreciated his nurturing personality.
And mydigitalmind inspires me with her amazing knowledge of wild birds, her many artistic talents, as well as her humility.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Photoshop, OpenCanvas, pen and paper, camera
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Recently, it's been my classroom - I like to make my posters by hand instead of using clipart. Outside of that, I've been taking lots of bird photos and neglecting to share them anywhere...
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
There are a lot of good memories... Running the Birds in Love contest was a lot of fun, as was Guess That Bird. In general, connecting to other bird enthusiasts on here has been pretty great!
