Although by now it's January.. So, first of all: A very happy new year to you all!! :HappyNewYear:


I got tagged by :iconblack-rose-92: Here are my answers to the questions :)


DECEMBER TAG


PERSONAL SECTION


1. What's your name/ nickname if you prefer?
Aywen is my name on the web.

DA SECTION

1. How did you end on DA?

Back in the good old days of middle school I would sometimes "work" on the computers. I don't know how I found DeviantArt at first, but it was my favourite place to just browse and look at pretty pictures and get jealous of people who could draw waaay better than me! I created an account just to fave stuff at school so I could save it on my computer back home.

2. Do you still have the first deviation you posted in your gallery?

No, I can't even remember what it was.

3. Do you keep your old deviations as memories?

No, every once in a while I get the urge to clean up and throw away pretty much everything. My gallery is a mix of lots of things and sometimes I feel I should focus on one thing only. My hobbies change a bit too often for that though. I give up ;)

4. Would you favorite a well-made piece of art although you are not interested in that >topic/style< of art at all?
If I'm not at all interested, I'm unlikely to see it in the first place. But if something catches my interest then yes.

5. Do you think get feedback/watchers groups are useful?
Feedback is always useful and groups can be a nice way to "meet" new people. I follow a knitting and crocheting group and find it very inspiring at times. As long as you don't see too much of the same stuff.

ART SECTION

1. Do you have OCs?
Yes.

2. How many?
I couldn't possibly say. I have been writing stories since I could hold a pen, many characters come and many go, but some stay with me.

3. Do you do fanart?
Yes, but I'm less likely to share it. Depends what it is.

4. Do you think original art deserves more credit than fanart?
Depends what it is. On the whole I'd say yes, but fanart can be really good and very original too. There's a big difference between copying art and let a book or movie or person inspire you to create something new :)

MISCELLANEOUS SECTION

1. Do you watch anime?

No.

2. Do you read manga?
No.

3. Do you think you can be too old for these?
It's not a matter of being too old, it's just not my thing. I think the style is ugly and it annoys me, it always has.

4. Prefer movies or series?
Movies I guess.

5. Why?

I'm terrible at following series, I just can't get myself to do so. I rarely watch movies, too, but you can usually watch a movie without any background knowledge etc. Movie = 2 hours. Series = weeks? months? :faint:

6. Favorite book?

Oohh that's difficult! The Elenium trilogy by David Eddings is one of the series I've read several times, but there are many other books I enjoyed very much.

7. Favorite genre?
Fantasy.


I'm tagging: No one. I honestly wouldn't know who to tag. If you read this and think it's fun, go ahead and "tag" yourself! ;)

Feel free to skip the questions you don't feel comfortable with and anybody else who wants to answer, be free to do so and post links with your answers. :) (Smile)  Spread the tags.

Blue raven by Aywen-Pasha
Blue raven
Watercolor painting of a blue raven! Why blue? Why not? :)  I thought blue would be easier to work with than black.
Each time I tried to add an extra layer of paint I brushed away the existing paint instead. This was a bit of a nuisance at first, but later I used it to my advantage, to create highlights on the feathers. Very happy with how this turned out! :)

Merry Christmas! by Aywen-Pasha
Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all, from me and Fido! =)

Who is Fido, you ask? Fido is a cute creatue who is not a dog. Despite being so very different, he's happy to be himself. Something I think more people should realize! :) I wrote a book about him which was published this year! It's bilingual - Dutch and English - and has many cute pictures in it.
Find Fido on Facebook: www.facebook.com/HetBoekjeFido…
And on Goodreads: www.goodreads.com/book/show/25…
Order your copy of Fido here: boekscout.nl/shop/_.aspx/Fido?… or send me a note!

Timo Kotipelto by Aywen-Pasha

Part one of project "stop playing those stupid games on your phone!!!!"
I always bring a book with me on the train, or a small knitting project, or both. But lately I don't feel like reading at all, and the next knitting project on my list involves cabling and I think it's such a fuss to do on the train (besides, I'm not that good at reading charts yet). Never mind the reason, I've been postponing it for weeks and haven't done anything besides wasting my precious time with my phone. And I'm so tired of that, ugh. So, quite impulsively I brought paper and and a pencil, bought this month's Aardschok magazine, et voilà! Here's Timo Kotipelto from Stratovarius. I immediately felt better. 50 minutes well spent! :)
