How long have you been on DeviantArt?
7 years. Woah.
What does your username mean?
"Ashqtara" (spoken Ash-k-tara) is the name of an elfish dragonrider in a story of mine. I liked the name and so I used it
Describe yourself in three words.
kind. (easily) overwhelmed. clumsy.
Are you left or right handed?
What is your favourite type of art to create?
At the moment digital paintings and watercolour.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Acrylics (I always get the feeling the paint hates me :,D )
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I just... I... don't know. Many artists, but it would include a lot of awkward standing around because I'm really not good at meeting new people, and especially people I admire.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Everyone who inspired me.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencils, paper, watercolours and my beloved Wacom.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Depends on my mood, sometimes my desk at home, sometimes outside surrounded by nature.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
My first DD, I literally couldn't stop smiling for hours
Some of you may have realized that I'm quite inactive at the moment. I moved to a new town in April and started working my first real job (still exciting!) in June, and I still have no internet at home (no, it's not that I don't try, the provider just is sooooooo slow with working on my contract it's nerve-stretching).
KabelDeutschland promised me to get everything working until the end of the month but from the way it looks I think Christmas sounds like a more promising deadline...
So yeah, I'm still alive and (kind of) kicking. And there will be a time when I'm connected to the world once more.
Till then: Take care, everyone!
