|Please feel free look through my gallery while you're here!|
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I made my account about 8 years ago but I was mostly a lurker untill 2009. That's when I stared being less of lurker and started posting my own work and watching other accounts.
2. What does your username mean?
'Neko-Kiona' is a two part name, obviously. 'Neko' (Japanese for cat) was chosen due to my love for cats and at the time my early obsession with animal earred characters, in particular cat girls. And Kiona was/is the name of my very first OC/Fan charrie, whom I associate with myself.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Happy... Cat... Girl? XD That's hard to do! That may describe my 'work' more than myself.
4. Are you left or right handed?
I'm a righty!
5. What was your first deviation?
These last two years I've been cleaning up my gallery removing my older 'less favorable' works, including my first uploads. My very first upload was a 'self traced' base from a anime character that I had made in ms paint, then redesigned to look like an OC from the time. It's kinda embarrassing...
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I would totally love to be able to draw ANY style at a mastered level! I recognize that I still have alot to learn, so overnight mastery of any style would be awesome!
8. What was your first favourite?
Hmm... This was the 'oldest' fave in my favorites folder, but for some reason I don't believe it actually was... But then again at the time I was actually afraid of 'favoriting' things. I remember this piece well though! A drawing made by an acquaintance I made back in 2008/2009. I loved what I saw as originality in concept and later went on to make some fave art of her original species.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Anime stuffs! XD I'm kinda a one track mind, but most of my faves are various anime styled works and anything cute. I don't tend to go out looking for things to fave, I'm kinda quiet on the social standings.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
What a question! I hate picking faves... I'd have to categorize them to be fair. -Like favorite jewelry maker, fave anime artist, fave traditional artist, ect. and that would make a long list! I think I'll cheat and just say . She's my best friend and we've been working on our art skill together since we started fawning over anime and manga in middle school.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Hmm... I'd actually like to meet in person one day. We've chatted off and on about her works and life stuffs, and I think it might be neat to actually get to meet her.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Actually there's two who really affected me here on DA. One being the person who got me to sign-up initially, . Though she's moved through several different accounts... And I'm not sure if she's still active on her most 'most recent' one. And two being , who has been with me through out my art development encouraging me as we learned together. She's also the deviant who got me starting to actually post as well.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I love drawing in pencil and digitally.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Ummm. I don't have one? I think? XD I'm pretty stationary so...
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Oh gosh... Personally? I think the times I spent with my friends doing 'weekly drawings'. It kept me drawing so that I could improve myself and kept me inspired by everyone taking turns picking themes. I remember being ecstatic about the first person who faved my work whom I didn't know personally, I remember the first time someone 'featured' my art in a group, and I remember the first time someone gave me some points just because and those were all amazing moments too!
I like drawing anime/manga type stuffs. Generally just females with animal ears (...Wyl...) or random female furries/anthros. I kinda sabotaged myself with that, heh heh heh... But with practice and slow learning, one day I'll make it in the big leagues...! -Believe it! XD|
If I ever figure out how commissions work, I -may- open those up. Until then I hope you will enjoy my slow paced uploads!
