How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Over 8 years...9 in October!
What does your username mean?
It was just my old aol screen name Super original-- my name (gabby), first letter of my last name (d), and my favorite number (7)..... plus a zero. Because gabbyd7 on aol was already taken lol
Describe yourself in three words.
How about one......Weird
hmmm curious, creative, and blessed
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Charcoal portraits, characters, and oil painting portraits : )
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
It's hard to describe this, but I want to master a style that incorporates beautiful rhythmic line work with an atmospheric painting style. All with beautifully rendered light and shade. I want to master edge work, with soft and hard edges. I want a painterly, yet life-like style. That's the hope and goal.
What was your first favorite?
This drawing. I remember seeing it in computer class junior year and I remember it just blowing my mind!
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Beautiful girly art
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
There is so much talent on this site! How do I pick just one?! An artist who has consistently been one of my favorites though for the past 8 years would be Charlie-Bowater Her work has always amazed me.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Okay now I can't just pick one! I would want to meet all my favorite artists and all the wonderful people who send me such encouraging comments.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I've been so inspired by fellow deviants-those who create wonderful beautiful things to look at and also those who enjoy my work and inspire me to create more.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Mechanical pencils, sketchbook with smooth white pages, q-tips, blending stumps, kneaded eraser, extra soft vine charcoal, white charcoal, grey paper, linen canvas panels, oil paint, mineral spirits, paint brushes, pastels, colored paper, wacom intuos 3, photoshop cs5, mac, copic markers, and a white gel pen. ; )
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I love to create art sitting on my bed or in my art room. I also love going to open studios to paint from life or in a class with friends.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Waking up to 3,000 messages on a piece of art I made. That was so cool!
Happy 15th dA!! You're growing up so fast!
