I've completed this deviantART meme
1. How did you join deviantART?
I'm sorry, but I don't know. I can't remember. It was six years ago and sometimes I can't even remember what I had for breakfast... 2. What does your username have to do with you?
"Ashqtara" was/is the name of a character in a story of mine, an elfish dragonrider, who was the only elfish girl among humans. I liked the name (which means "daugther of fire" in my story btw) and it was a name no one had before so I chose it as my username. (Because I'm always getting this question: It's spoken Ash-k-tara ... I definitely should have thought of an easier name xD).3. What is your current avatar of?
My current avatar is... me. Cosplaying a female version of the 11th Doctor of the tv-show "Doctor Who".4. How many Watchers do you have, and how many do you watch?
*runs to her profile and to the gallery stats* Let's see... I have 273 watchers and I watch 478 deviants. 5. Do you have more than one account?
Not anymore. I had a stock-account once.
6. Name three of your favorite artists on deviantART.
How evil .____. Three. How can I choose?
(I'm a libra I literally can't choose!)
and now I'm feeling terrible for everyone I couldn't name I'm so sorry
7. What deviant(s) do you admire because of their personality?
Many. Beside all the deviants I know in real life (look at 8), I would name
, but also some others. I always love to read what they write :38. How many deviants do you actually know in real life? Post their avatars.
12. Some of them I only met one or two times, some I know for several years.
And my real life little sister 9. Do you comment, Favourite, or both?
I have to admit, when I like an artwork, I favourite it but don't write a comment. I mostly only write comments... hm, I guess, when I have something to say. Like what I like most about the work, of which song or quote or scene it reminds me, what I feel when looking at it or an answer to something in the artists10. What do you typically post on deviantART?
At the moment fan art to different tv-shows or movies, also own digital and traditional art. In the next time I will try to upload a bit more photography.11. Do you participate in clubs or contests here on deviantART?
Yes, sometimes more, sometimes less.12. What is your most popular deviation -- as in most viewed or most favorited?
*runs again to the gallery stats*
Funny... my most viewed and most favorited deviation is my first DD:13. What's your favorite submission in your Gallery?
Hard to say. I think it's
14. What are things you wish you could draw better?
Hands. Noses. Faces. People in general.15. Do you have a Premium Membership?
Yes 16. How many hours a day do you spend on deviantART?
Sometimes no time at all, sometimes more than 4 hours. It depends on my time ^^17. Are you a fast, slow, or medium typer?
I would say fast, but I always think a lot about what to write and how, so a text can take me hours, even if I'm typing really fast 18. What is the most annoying thing people ask you?
"How did you drew this?" (I don't know, I just did?)
"Can you draw me this or that for free?" (I could if I could survive by eating nothing. So stop asking.) only one person is allowed to ask me this question and she know who she is xD19. What is the most annoying/offending comment you've ever received?There is no comment in particular, but I don't like confusing comments or comments in a language which isn't German or English so I don't understand it...
20. What (or who) inspires you?
Here I would like to link to the influence map I did four years ago. It's old but most parts are still relevant:
In short: music, movies, tv-shows, books, other artists, people, nature, life itself.21. Do you use guidelines when you draw?
I don't know what you mean with "guidelines"... I watch/read tutorials and use references, if this is what you meant? 22. Do you associate people on deviantART with their icons? Link us to some examples!
Not really. I usually associate people with their (user)name and their art style. 23. Have you ever suggested a Daily Deviation?
No.24. Many people have cons idered leaving deviantART. Have you? Why?
