1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
12 years, 8 months. :O

2. What does your username mean?
47 is the running gag number in Star Trek and "-ness" was from my forum days with shinneth (of course I find it extra-handy since my username frequently appears at the top of lists!)

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Happy, depressed, mixed. ;P

4. Are you left or right handed?
Owner of an aching right hand & wrist

5. What was your first deviation?
Onpu Muyo by 47ness Ojamajo Doremi hyyyype~

6. What is your favorite type of art to create?
You'd think I would say my favorite is comics, but not really; I have a love-hate relationship with my style of comics at the moment. :XD:;

Honestly, my two favorite moments in any artist process is the beginning and the ending, when I'm at my happiest.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I keep saying I want to be a better digital painter and do that intense, messy, dynamic style that is often associated with Craig Mullens + others, but I've just been too lazy/stubborn to learn or adapt new brush techniques. >>

8. What was your first favorite?
Space Babies by the-lone-voice I'm gonna LIE and pick my fourth favorite; it feels the most like it should be my first.

9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
I tend to favorite stuff that goes unnoticed. I just do. Sure I'm always looking to favorite stuff that moves me but, personally, I want my fav'ing to feel like it matters to the other artist.

10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
Humm. I mean I respect the Big Name™ Artists on this site (usually, but not always, the ones with the medal icon) since they're super-active members of the community and spend a lot of their time uplifting/inspiring others, but I can't call them my favorites.

(See #11 for deviants whose work and company I've particularly enjoyed over the years) of course to :iconrocky-o: :iconsweet-suzume: for putting up with me and all the running around town for the sake of promoting art. XD

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Gotta list the ones I want to meet!

:iconretromissile: :iconsio64: :iconshadow2k: :iconbluendmikki:  :iconvermin-star: :iconelleoser: :iconwoohooligan: :iconjameson9101322: :iconrhavencroft: :iconreganov: :iconamairim: :iconrobo-shark: :iconmrvelocity: (o-okay I need to cut it off here.. '-'; )

Honorably mention to :iconjesncin: who I will be meeting this fall! ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Hmm, not sure~ I often say my art instructors impacted my life, so it's hard to equate deviants quite on that level...

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I love me some smooth Bristol board + mechanical pencil and pen (various brands). Everything else is just Photoshop CS5 (w/ my ol' Intuos4). I really want to try out Toon Boom, and turn SSnPP into a 2-D animation...!

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
If there were an exceptionally inspirational place for me to work, I haven't found it yet...!! I feel like my most inspired state is when I'm in a deep sleep, dreaming.

But the most efficient time for me to work is at dead hours of the night, when there's few distractions and a sense of timelessness (as you can't see the sunlight passing in the sky).

15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
...Vermin-Star reminded me of Mudkip icon ... :XD:

I liked creating my own memory with this A NIGHT AT THE CARNELIAN'S by 47ness Being able to reflect on all the amazing people that express themselves so vividly here! I kinda want to do something like this again?? ahaha


It was nice to think back on a lot of this stuff (this also marks the 9-year anniversary where I very nearly died in a car crash; 8/8/06) so being able to think about all the good times that have come since helps give me a sense of perspective. :)
