How long have you been on DeviantArt?
According to my old account, 9 years. April 2006. I just turned 20 so p much hALF MY LIFE....
What does your username mean?well, Masumi is a Japanese name I gave an old OC with the intention of her reflecting the meaning "true purity".. the x's were probably bc i had no idea what else to use haha; i was still p shaken up from being banned for being under-aged the first time.
Describe yourself in three words.meek | observant | uncertain
Are you left or right handed?
seems like it was this piece of work.... on this account it was a birthday gift
What was your first deviation?
I feel most satisfied with traditional art which i ink and color with marker
What is your favourite type of art to create?
At first I thought 2D animation, then I thought of comic-making. But I think I'd really like to master Typography.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
duDE NO IDEA. PrObably something Powerpuff related tbh... at least on this account ?
What was your first favourite?
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?Like, if you mean strictly dA statistics, it'd probably be digital fanart ? but personally i favor comics and animations a lot because of the storytelling ! but when i'm so into comics, i don't always favorite pages haha;;;
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?oh man, oh man. I don't think I have a favorite anymore but, like, thebottled will always come to mind when it comes to Idolized dArtists. Granted she doesn't post much online anymore, but when she still went on as Zombee1990, she was p much my hero ; v;
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?Does it count when i already met someone from dA in person;;; haha i mean she only left last monday after a few days over, but i already started to miss Pokii right after dropping her off at the airport hgsdasfsaensh
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?WELL, I have to say everything about thebottled's art had encouraged me to keep drawing. She was super supportive of my art from day one as a tiny little 5th grader! That meant so much that this sUPER COOL OLDER PERSON was praising ME!!! But then there was BlueInfinity23 who I became friends with and, while we've drifted apart as we've grown, I appreciate the fun times I had with her!
Ok, I won't list everyone... I was about to go on a tangent about all the lovely people here who really have made me happy in just their existence, but I SUPPOSE the biggest impact on my life was this loser and ABSOLUTE JERK that goes by the username PokreatiaForms. Man idk what's her deal making this super cool pokemon mystery dungeon comic with all these lovable dork characters??? And not to mention her friendly personality and her absolute giddiness when it comes to people complimenting her and making fanart for her and uuuuuuuguguughhhhhhhhhhh? ????????? NEVERMIND her messaging me p much everyday straight for like 4 years (more ??? idk) and having to deal with my constant depressive and self-loathing episodes . THE WORST OF IT THOUGH is when she SPENDS MONEY to buy me SUPER NICE THINGS without even ASKING just because she thinks/knows it wOULD MAKE ME HAPPY. UUUUUUUUUGH!!! What an awful person i love her she's my best friend. >8^(
What are your preferred tools to create art?A paper and pencil, no matter how much I want to fall back in love with digital art ;v;
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?Usually in an academic or professional setting where it is probably inappropriate. Most likely during a lecture of some sorts, because I'd like to learn the information but just simply listening will guarantee I would not retain anything. Drawing during the session helps me that way. Maybe that's why I also like it when I let a documentary play in the background while I draw haha;
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?There are so many to choose from, including meeting Mani to go onto PChat, and being kind of a figurehead in this old ~PPG Sisters~ thing I used to do, and being coolbeans with Courtney, and replying in paragraphs to pokeri, and roleplaying in the comment section for weeks with Chrissy (who has left dA but she is not forgotten), but idk. My favorite memory is maybe when Weezy posted a journal on her Old account.
The journal itself was sad and she was going through something sad, and right now i can't remember what it was. I don't think it was the tragedy of her mom yet, though, but I just left a small supportive comment and she replied super surprised i even read her journal! I know I'm really quiet and hardly fave or comment on anything, but I look! I read. Sometimes in a timely manner, sometimes not. I'm just... shy ? I know it's dumb because it's ~the internet~, but it doesn't change the fact I don't like putting my opinion out there when it isn't asked directly.
Regardless, she said she was appreciative of the sentiment and afterwards we became closer. It makes me very happy that in that moment of sadness, I had a small burst of courage to say something and we've become good friends, I think.
