Deviantartist Questionnaire

Fri Aug 7, 2015, 10:40 PM
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? 8 years now, but only 3 as a publishing artist. Most of that was lurking and commenting on other people's art.

  2. What does your username mean? Xechon was the Warlord Big Bad of an unpublished episode of Xena that I wrote a very long time ago. It was a good name, so I've been using it ever since.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.

  4. Are you left or right handed? Left Hander ftw.

  5. What was your first deviation? Besides my old DeviantID? A Legend of Korra fan art for the then upcoming series.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Color digital probably, but they take forever to complete.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Truly spectacular pencil and inks comic style, something like Jan Duursema, Travis Moore, or Brian Ching.

  8. What was your first favourite? The first fave I tagged was First Date by Travis Moore. The first fave I ever received was for the aforementioned Korra piece.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Colorful action poses of strong females or sci-fi characters.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? How can you pick just one? Look at my Favourites list to see at least 1 piece by every artist on my watch list.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I've met quite a few, actually. Never pass up a chance to wander slowly though Artist's Alley at a convention.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? Inspiration is easily found here.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? Engineer's pencil, Japanese ink pens, Wacom Tablets

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Boring meetings? Seriously though, I do most of my work on my game computer with an old tablet.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? The first time I got faved? "They like me, they really like me!" :D
