Another journal? I haven't posted so frequently in probably years. But I want to be hip with he cool kids and all my friends are doing it, so here goes!1.) How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Oh wow, five years already? Since Jun 4, 2010. That was a lifetime ago.2.) What does your username mean?
It means arts created by or attributed to a doubled form of stitch that appears to form a solid line
It's art by me! Me going by my pony's name anywho. Before that it was LatentPromise and same thing there, and before that PatNintendoGuy. That was back before I had any plans to art professionally, and before I heard why the AVGN isn't still the Angry Nintendo Nerd. Pat's another name I've been known by, I love Nintendo, and my gender is male. Srsly all this stuff is self-explanatory XD3.) Describe yourself in three words.
Awkward, average, silly.4.) Are you left or right handed?
I'm a righty but I've always appreciated left-handedness and wished I was ambidextrous.5.) What was your first deviation?
Oh goshno. Please don't look.
I swear I didn't trace that, I just looked really hard at the lineart while I was
Imean drawing that from an anime magazine (one of only two I've ever owned). Yes I watched Bleach, yes I still like the first few seasons I watched, and yes I lost track of it ages ago. But enough defending myself!6.) What is your favourite type of art to create?
PLUSH. So much plush. Like, I plush intensely more than I do anything in life and I love it. I'm still not arrogant enough to call it "fabric sculpting" (I just think that it'd sound too pretentious coming from me) but definitely plush is best art.... though cosplay I've got into pretty hardcore. Sometimes they overlap and then I'm in heaven.7.) If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I... Well I want to learn to sculpt, animate, compose music, draw better, forge metal, build animatronics- but if I could learn one instantly? Animation(flash or 3D) or music. There are so many things I'd love to create both visually and musically, things I'd like to share with people because they make me happy, but I can't because I've no aptitude for such things XD Either that or animatronic design- I've wanted to build things like that since I was nine and I'd love to be able to get a job in it. It'd be like plushing plus. To me anyway.8.) What was your first favourite?
Ahahaha... okay this is going to seem a bit egotistical but it's this:
That's meeee... I fav'd it because it was back when some of my Megatron cosplay pics went kinda viral and I was like "oh my gosh look at this I'm on the internet!"9.) What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Plush and drawn things. Usually plush I really like or that've been done by my plushfriends, and I fav art that really catches my eye or that's of mypones or my friends' ponies or my favorite ponies, though I really don't give out the favs as much as I should.10.) Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Okay so now you ask a hard one.... uhhh, I've probably fav'd Nazegoreng
's work the most and and I've had the pleasure of being present from when she started up her plushstuff 'til now, going from an influence and helping hoof to her to now just helping each other out from time to time. She's a good friend and she's helped me out a lot over the years <3 I have to say though I've been super inspired by ButtercupBabyPPG
's work just because the shapes all work so well together (beautiful shapes that are smooth, flow well, and just pop really catch my eye) and each plush she does feels so... unique and impassioned. I adore her and her ponies and she's probably my all-time fav. She's probably the closest to a senpai I've got >///<' (pls notice me)11.) If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Hahaha, oh dear. It'd be every plush friend I have like Nazegoreng
and- if you've made a plushie and we've talked I'd probably like to meet you and have a nice chat ^ ,^ Also my customers! Goodness, I've only met three in person before. So many people I work for I end up making friends with 'em and my life just wouldn't be the same without them. They're all so nice <3 I'd probably like to meet a few of the people I've seen and heard about by reputation but haven't had the courage or opportunity to say hi. If I end up at next year's BronyCon, I'll probably get the chance to meet a lot of these people :312.) How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Gosh, almost every friend I have I've met here, mostly through work. And I have a job thanks to fellow deviants here hiring me to sew for them. So basically DeviantArt is responsible for my entire social life and career. And romantic life, too- I met my girlfriend here! Neato huh? ...I should be more active here.13.) What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pliers, scissors, pens, pencils, sewing machine, measuring devices, calculator, drawing tablet, my brain- that last one's pretty vital. Oh and a needle and thread too. So much thread.14.) What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Hahaha, in front of my computer I guess? With how much I've had to move around in my life I've never had much of a concrete place to just create. So yah, in front of my computer with some tunes jamming and with my mind lost in whatever it is I'm doing.15.) What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Ah wow, that's the hardest of them all. Meeting my best friends here was pretty memorable, the excitement of my plushies starting to get noticed, that feeling of connection between myself and people commenting- I know.
My favorite memories are being told that I'm an inspiration. Not like because "look at me, I'm so important" but because of the feeling that my work is so much more than just me and my plush and a customer, though that relationship and feeling is very important too! It's just being told that something I've made has inspired someone else to create, that's powerful. I'm just so blah at what I do but people who could easily one day outclass me in this stuff tell me they look up to me or that they made this or that because of me. They ask me for advice, of all people, or ask for critiques or tips and I love helping! It's just such a good feeling knowing something I have in my head is worthwhile to someone. And I see these things that people create and I see them growing, and the knowledge that something I did got them moving in some creative direction... it about leaves me wordless really. I'm actually getting a bit emotional here, heh.
So that's a good note to leave on I think. I've just written a micro-novel and ended almost teary-eyed XD Happy b-day DeviantArt, without you I'd probably be a nobody. And only maybe homeless, friendless, and jobless
And thanks anyone who actually read this thing through!
