I love filling in surveys for some reason.
So here's my #DeviantArtistQuestionnaire
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Hmm... 7 years I think. Don't get fooled by this profile page, I've had at least two other accounts before this one, hehe... ;>
What does your username mean?
About 5 years ago, I wanted to "reboot" my internet identity. It's around the same time I decided I wanted to become a professional digital artist. I needed a simple, catchy name that I felt comfortable using anywhere... So I took a word I liked the sound of in swedish: nejlika. It means clove ( the spice) in english. Then I just anglified it so it would sound like an english word... and NEYLICA was born.
Describe yourself in three words.
Are you left or right handed?
Right handed. One day I want to learn drawing with my left as well.
What was your first deviation?
This is the earliest one I could find, haha!
(I had a huge manga/anime phase)
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Digital fantasy art. ♥
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Hmm.. watercolour painting, I think. Or 3D modeling. :>
What was your first favourite?
On this account:
On my oldest account:
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I'm very picky with what I add to my favs. I tend to add inspiring sci-fi/fantasy art that has a quality level that I strive for myself. (:
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
It must be sandara
. Her work has inspired me very much throughout the years, and may have been one big reason to why I wanted to become a professional artist!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
! He's a really nice guy and we're both into game art and stuff. I've had great fun taking to him, and I have no doubt we'll meet out in the industry someday! Go check his DA page out!
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Hm, I would probably say
because she's a great artist and I look up to her a lot! Her journals about artist struggles have been really helpful in motivating me and has helped me keep going when times are rough. Thank you Suzanne! <3
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Photoshop + wacom, definitely!
But I enjoy creating art with traditional tools as well.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Nothing beats the comfort of sitting at my own big desk and double monitors. That's my creative sanctuary. I do get a lot of inspiration from nature, but haven't found a comfortable way to paint digitally outdoors yet. : P
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I was really happy when I won a competition at
with this painting:
It's still the most faved/viewed/commented deviation I have, people seem to enjoy it a lot, which makes me really happy! It deserves a remake though.
I hope you enjoyed reading my questionnaire! If any of my watcher filled this in, do link me to it in the comments! I'd love to read it! ^^
