Even though the notice for this has long since gone I figured I would give this a shot. I've thought long and hard about some of these questions for the past few days.
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Been around DA since probably when I was 13/14 but only made THIS account since 2013.
2. What does your username mean?
It was actually something I thought of for Youtube years ago wherein I would upload glitchy, random and fanservicey videogame footage in an episode format which was called "Videogame Stupidity". I got into Let's Playing though and pretty much act stupid while playing videogames. I've opted to keep the name for here as opposed to using other monikers I use since people seem to know me as mostly VGS and I like the name.
3. Describe yourself in three words
Tall, stoic and quick-moving.
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
First deviation was of a genderbent Assassin from one of the many Assassin's Creed games .
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Nude photography . Kidding but 3D rendered art. I think it would be cool to take stuff that already exists and make something even cooler out of it like this piece inspired by a shoot I did .
8. What was your first favourite?
Surprisingly it wasn't of a fanservicey cosplay. It was actually a shot of the Green Ranger at Youmacon 2012 which is a con that I may or may not attend this year.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Cosplay. Cosplay all the way.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
That is a tough one but probably would have to be since we've been shooting since Otakon 2013 and have not stopped as long as we're at the same con and all our cosplays look amazing. Even if I have no clue about the series she is cosplaying from I still enjoy shooting it anyway. Helps that she is super cute and fun to shoot with. With that being said her Boston Crab skills need a bit of improvement *coughcoughChipandSkipOtakon2014Shootcoughcough*.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
It would have to be . I don't remember what the first deviation I saw from him was but I do know that it got me hooked! Great photography with a sense of humor and he knows just what kind of shot to get with any character he is shooting. We were both at Katsucon last year but I either had no clue he was attending til after the con or I just didn't run into him due to not buying a pass that year(damn snow storm made me get there Saturday instead of Thursday :anger. I think it would be cool to kinda pick his brain and learn more about the field of photography and especially cosplay photography from him.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Well lets see... before commented on a deviation of a certain "Hot Misty" I had never thought of doing photoshoots at cons. Hell I didn't even think I could do one without a business card or without charging/paying or having over 10,000 "likes" on some social media hogwash site. He convinced me though that you don't need any of that and only need to, to steal a quote from Shia LaBeouf although Alyssa Ashcroft from Resident Evil Outbreak said it first, "Just Do It!" so I did. Although I am still trying to improve and struggle with random mishaps that may happen I feel my con experience has evolved from simply taking 30-50 photos, going to panels that I may or may not fall asleep in and playing videogames that I could be playing at home to taking more pictures than I can handle(but still very much enjoy the outcome), meeting new people and hanging out with old friends. Before I started doing shoots I was always too shy or whatever to talk to people at cons but now there are several people I know from cons that I keep in contact with even outside of cons. Yeah I'd say has definitely impacted my life and for the better.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
The Canon T4i/650D but more specifically the lens I prefer is the Canon USM 28MM F1/1.8
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
At cons. Even while doing a shoot I may see someone or something pass by that gives me an idea for a shot that wouldn't happen if I were to do a shoot with no other cosplayers in sight.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Too many to count. It would have to be a cross between the time I defended a cosplayer from some bully obsessed with boy muscles and rubbed his own crude logic in his face or seeing that the photo of Satsuki I took at Otakon 2014 had somehow garnered so much buzz. It took me a long ass time to edit that one too and I didn't think it would ever get over 10,000 views or that many downloads and faves but somehow it did. It's probably the Metal Gear in the background XD.
Whelp that is that. Time to get back to editing photos!
