Haaaaappy Birthday DA. Wouldja look at that, been a year already? Dango. We're all getting old. Alrighty then -crackles knuckles- Let's do this thing then, eh? I want that badge >I
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Let's see now... 6 Years? Yikes, it's been that long? Wowie.
I actually had been visiting DA long before I actually joined. I'd search Spyro Comics on google, and would wind up here on most occasions. I eventually joined so I could keep track of said comics. As for when I joined? That would beee, back in July, 2009-- though this account was made December 2009. Hoo man, I was a dinky little 13 year old. I had several [failed] accounts before this one. Let's just say, teenaged Tizzii couldn't keep track of her passwords well. It wasn't until the 5th account, SighriaDragoness12, when I started keeping my passwords on a piece of paper. My poor younger self.
2. What does your username mean?
Exactly what it looks like: Sighria, my character who is a dragon-- or 'dragoness' as a female term, and the number 12. 12 is one of my favorite numbers, due to it being the age of several of my favorite cartoon heroes back in the day.
I've contemplated changing my username in the past, but I've been SD12 for so long, I really can't see myself as anything else. [Plus, a lot of my other ideas-- 'SighriaDragoness', SighriatheDragoness-- are taken. See back to my 4 previous failed accounts... <.<'
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Hmm... hyperactive, hyper-imaginative, goofball. That sounds about right, but, it really depends on how well y'know me~. If I was my silly, sporadic self around strangers, I'd likely scare them off!
4. Are you left or right handed?
I be right handed.
5. What was your first deviation?
That would be this ancient blur of lead on paper:
It was a picture of Spyro, Cynder, Fushion, and Sighria-- related to my VERY old Spyro Fanfic, Saviors of the Multiverse. Iiii... don't recommend reading it x'D. It's a lot like this drawing: Old, disproportionate, and confusing.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
I personally stick to a cartoony, digital style. It's all I really know how to do at this point ^^'
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Hm... tough one. There's a lot I'd like to do, but I'd haveta say, digital. I think it's best to stick with what I'm most familiar with, y'know? Course, I wouldn't mind messing with other media. But, when it comes to mastering, I'd stay with digital.
8. What was your first favourite?
Now, THIS is gonna take some digging. Gimme juuuust a moment as I look. But, my safe guess, it was either something by Shalone, or CynderandSpyroFan [now Fourth-Star]
Got it~. It indeed was something from Shalone. This lovely piece:
--which is actually just someone else's lineart colored by Shalone. But, still good nonetheless!
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Mostly drawings from my idols, friends, and other people I watch. I don't browse DA as often as I used to-- but thanks to the 'More From DeviantArt' sidebar on deviations, I find myself clicking around to find good stuff and other awesome artists.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I have many, as seen from my DA ID's description-- and it's hard to pick a favorite, they're all so amazing in their own ways! But, if I had to choose just one, all-time favorite, it'd be ShaloneSK. It was her art, and her comic that was one of the first things I discovered on DA, and her works inspire me to this day. The years have gone by, and I still get giddy and wiggly when she replies to my comments. Some things never change.
Just to give the lot of them recognition, I'll link all of my favorite artists-- idols and friends, old and new alike!

Though I haven't ever officially made contact with ya-- I religiously watched animations and tribute videos made by you on youtube, before I even found DA! Even though they're old, they're a keen memory for me now. For preceding even Shalone, and inspiring me to draw more dragons while I was a young artist growing! For putting up with my daily shenanigans, for developing my anthro anatomy, for OTPs, and for being my bestestis best friend everrrr!

For being that Finnish fook that's been a long time friend, and an avid ear for my ideas!
For being a long time friend that I still love and respect even though we don't really talk anymore! ;V;
For inspiring early ideas for Sighria, and for being one of my first DA friends! Don't think I've forgotten about you, you scrubber.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Also a tough one. With many idols and friends comes many people I'd wanna meet. Shalone is definitely one of them, as is WeirdHyenas, Kayla-Na, Sorona, Naeda... But, I think the winner here would be Seeraphine.
She's not only an idol, but I've come to consider her a friend through the times we've talked and the goofy pictures we've swapped back and forth. She seems like she'd be an awesome person to hang out with-- even if our personalities might clash! She seems so laid back and sensible, while I'm loud and excitable. x'D
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Oh many many people have impacted me! My idols inspire me day by day to develop my art and my ideas and someday reach the heights they have. The friends I've met make me smile and laugh and are awesome people to share and swap ideas with. And my fans may be some of the most important people to my life on DA. I still to this day can't believe my eyes or ears when someone calls me their idol, their inspiration-- when people rank me with my own idols, when I'm lined up with Shalone and Seeraphine and Weird, I can only think how these fans of mine must see me. Do they have the same joy and giddiness that I had when first meeting my idols? Even I can't just sit down to casual chat with my idols, I'm far too shy, careful with everything I say, afraid of saying something wrong. I have a hard time viewing myself as someone's idol, because I'm still so young and nerdy, with idols I've had for years that I still fangirl out to when they reply to me. I dunno, maybe I'm just weird-- actually no, that's a given fact!
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I've used the same thing I've used for years now: A computer mouse, MS paint, and Gimp. I'm pretty content with what I have, but I wouldn't mind experimenting with other programs. SAI's got my eye. Heheh, rhymies.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I mostly just run off of my own mind. It doesn't matter where I am or who I'm around, I can always draw something related to how I'm feeling, or merely just what I feel like drawing. Music, friends, and other artists are the biggest inspirations for me.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
This one's probably impossible to answer. I've met so many amazing people here, developed my art and myself through my actions, the things I've said, the people I've met, the characters I've created. I know for a fact I wouldn't be the same self I am now if I never found DA. There'd be so many people I never would have met, so many characters I never would have created-- if I would have any at all. Where would I be without all this? It's scary to think about ;u;. I have memories for when I first joined, for the reveal of certain characters, for the development of friendships, for the discussion of ideas, theories, and concepts, for the sharing of interests-- the list goes on. I'd have to say some of my best memories are when I'm able to talk to my idols, I can't explain how much I look up to them, and just getting the chance to talk to them is a feeling incomparable.
I think that about wraps it up here. I maaay have talked too much. ...Oh well, I said what needed to be said. Did I won yet? .V.
Drawing preferences[Greatest to least] :: Anthros, Dragons, Feral Animals, Nagas, Pokemon, Humans, Ponies
