Unworthy by Embers

I wonder if I'm ever again going to like anything I draw... Take this one for example, it's got absolutely nothing in it that I wanted there to be. Nothing. And I didn't even want much. Accomplishment: wasted a couple of hours on it. Shouldn't have. Wasn't worth the effort.



I thought I'd give this a go, just for the sake of updating my journal.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Theoretically 11 years, 3 months and 11 days. In reality... on and off, more or less.

What does your username mean?
It's just a self-explanatory word. But perhaps I can somehow relate to the qualities of a fading fire. I should change it though, I just don't know into what exactly.

Describe yourself in three words.
Weird. Complicated. Unsocial.

Are you left or right handed?
Right handed, but I can also for example write with my left hand, so it's not actually that much worse. It might even       be better for a lot of things than my right hand. 

5. What was your first deviation?
Seems to be my very first human portrait. And surprisingly I still kind of like it.
Enya by Embers

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Traditional - pencil and paper are quite complicated enough for me. Then again, if I bothered to venture more into other things, I might find something I like better. But I'm always reluctant to try new things because they only lead to new kind of failures.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'd be quite happy to just master what I'm doing now. Hmm... but if I could snap my fingers and learn something else, I'm kind of torn between photography, digital art, traditional painting and writing, in no particular order. But still, I'd rather just magically master traditional drawing. Or perhaps I'd just be just as happy to master something instead of nothing.

8. What was your first favourite?
The user has deleted the image in question, so I can't share it here.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I don't really fave based on the type of art, but my favourites mainly seem to include nature/animal photography, and digital and traditional drawings of things I happen to like at any given time. 

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I honestly don't know. I always loved AmandaDrage but she's not here anymore. Recently I've probably been most in awe of kimberly80 and Kinko-White - these two are an absolute must see for any LOTR/Hobbit fan.

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I don't like to meet people. But if I had to ruin someone's day, CSupernova would have to be the victim, I'm afraid.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I don't tend to allow people to have much of an impact if I can help it. But sure, there have been good times with a few people (that few being an overestimation...) who happen to share even some of my cynical world view and not try to cure me from it.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
As mentioned earlier, 
pencil and paper. I'm not very specific about what paper I draw on, and I don't know if it's interesting to anyone, but when I say pencil, in my world it's almost always mechanical pencil.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Home. Well, it's not actually an inspirational place but I draw alone. No people around. No one disturbing. No interruptions.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I... don't think I have one. :|
