1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on DeviantArt for 8 years, going to be 9 years later this month.
2. What does your username mean?
Orginally my username was CindytheHedgehog, which referred to my Sonic OC since a lot of my favorite Sonic Artists had they OC's names as their username. However I changed it to HeroineMarielys because Marielys is my first name and also the Heroine refers to a female hero (not the drug XD ) and I always believed that everyone is the main character of their own story.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Creative, Thoughtful, and Shy ^_^
4. Are you left or right handed?
Left handed (Don't know why thats important XD)
5. What was your first deviation?
IDK if this is actually the first one but
is the first on my gallery. Back when I use to do a lot of Sprite work, I had more sprite stuff up in my account but DA took them down for some reason, so only this one and another one are left.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
I like doing stuff about my characters as well as fanart, but I also like doing comics when I have the chance and motivation XD. I also prefer doing things digital.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'm not sure about art style, but in terms of medium, I would love to master traditional painting, especially watercolor and acrylic painting (I've tried oils paint but I hate them with a burning passion XD ).
8. What was your first favourite?
(I seriously didn't know you could go back all the way to the first favorite XD) This makes sense because Sonic the Hedgehog was what brought me to DeviantArt.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Mostly fanart stuff XD I have it all divided into folders in my favorites XD. That Usually include Sonic the hedgeohg, Pokemon, Anime/Cartoons/Other Video Game Stuff, and Harvest Moon. I also like Tutorials and stuff people have done for my character.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I have a lot of favorite Deviant Artists but the two that I've looked up to for all the years I've been on DA are and
. These two are not only one of the few Sonic Artists that I grew up with and stayed on DA, but they were one of my inspirations to go into Digital Art after seeing their art and being completely awed at it. Their Sonic art inspired me to eventually join DA and do my own Sonic Art and later do original Art too.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Defiently these two and
, but I'd also like to meet
because he's one of my good friends here on DA. And I'd also like to me
cause she's an awesome person and one of the few people I could geek about Tamagotchi stuff X3 Also
because I love her Pokemon Art X3 .
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Like I mention before, and
were one of the main reasons I joined DA. I love Sonic as a child and finding their Sonic Art inspired me to join DA and do Sonic Art too. I still love Sonic and still look up to them to this day.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
As a Digital Artist of many years, the tablet has been my best friends. Specifically, my bamboo wacom tablet of 3 years. As for art program, Photoshop has been my main program for the longest time. I've gotten different versions of it, with CS5 being the current one. However, I've also tried other programs too. Manga Studio has been my alternative program and now, one of my primary art programs that I been using now. The current version I use is called Clip Studio Paint Pro (with is the rebranded name of Manga Studio).
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
DeviantArt has always inspired me to do art, with is why I guess I've never had Art Block because of it. In terms of locations, I been able to work more in my room at my home but I've also gotten inspiration at my studio in my art school.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I think one of my favorite DA memories was actually last January, where I posted the two comics I made for school and got a lot of positive response off of it.
Well I enjoyed doing this. Long Live DeviantArt
Happy 15th Birthday!! #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire
