Don't normally do questionnaires unless I'm being paid to complete them, but what the heck, everyone else is doing it, may as well jump on the bandwagon.
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Since February 2006, so about 9 1/2 years at this point
2. What does your username mean?
Back when I created my first email account I simply went with my surname, plus the current year as the account, resulting in Tyrie2001. Been using it most places ever since
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Eccentric British Photographer
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
I have no idea, as I deleted/stored a lot of my older stuff. Earliest deviation currently in my gallery is a photograph of a Class 43 HST from back in the day when they stilled had their original Valenta Paxman engines installed
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Currently it's photography.
I used to do some traditional/digital art, starting out with hand sketches which I then inked and coloured in MS Paint, but I haven't done that for quite some time now, and most of the art I did is now in storage. For those curious, I'd say check out Monster Poker, and Trick or Treat for examples of my art style
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Hmm. I'd say either Photoshop photo editing, mainly so that I could improve upon my InfraRed photography.
When it comes to normal photography, I don't tend to do much editing besides minor tweaks like angle correction, and gamma/contrast adjustments. Infrared though requires more post-processing to get decent pictures, so I wouldn't mind learning how to use more advanced editing software at some point
8. What was your first favourite?
Earliest one appears to be Ravenpuff's OC's from Year One
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Mostly photography, especially when the subject matter is locomotives
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Okay, kidding aside, there are too many awesome people out there for me to choose between. I love ya all.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Top of the list would be people like Ravenpuff, Sanoon, AnnaKlava, IrkenImperialGaurd, Gvozdi, etc. Would be nice to meet up with them all one day and have a few drinks together.
Just a heads up for the Americans though, when we go drinking, we're doing it in a British pub where the pints are severed in REAL pint glass (20fl.oz), not those little pussy 16fl.oz glasses that your bars use
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Well Ravenpuff is like a sister to me, whenever I've been troubled or depressed she's been there for me to chat too, and vice versa
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Current tool of choice is my Canon EOS 70D, typically used with the 70-300mm lens that Ravenpuff got me several years ago
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Depends what you mean by inspirational. When it comes to photography, if you mean where do I go to take most of my photos, then it would be places like the West Somerset Railway, or the Grand Western Canal
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Error 403 - Forbidden
Sorry folks, my fav memories involve private RPs and conversations with my buddies via DA notes. And what gets said in the notes, stays in the notes ^^
Speaking which, I have a heads up for those I chat with I'm currently chatting/RPing with. I'm gonna be offline until Sunday 16th. I'm heading up to Grans later today for the week, and there be no internets where she lives. Incidentally, this is also why I'm up so early on a non-workday, as I've got a lot of stuff to do before we leave.
Well, I'll see you guys later. I'm gonna go brew some coffee to help me wake up
