Hello, and welcome ^^
Most of my gallery is rather old, and I plan to upload more soon..ish.. when less busy with university T_T
Thanks for visiting!
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
8 years, though I've been inactive many times.
What does your username mean?
Asraylis is my online name, which I came up with when I was 12 and needed a username for my first MMORPG, Runescape (cringe, I know, but that was 10 years ago now!). I wanted to make an original name which sounded good and interesting, mysterious perhaps. A lot of people have trouble pronouncing and spelling it, much like my given name, which makes me a bit sad ('az-ray-liss', 'as'-'ray'-'lis', it seems fairly easy to remember to me ><). This is my username for most of my online accounts and characters in games and such, but a few people have used it on some sites that I don't use.. whether they took my username because they wanted to or whether they came up with it by themselves as well is unknown to me.
Describe yourself in three words.
Careful, overthinker, dreamer.
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Hmm.. Art that is meaningful and looks good. I like both traditional and digital media, it's hard to say which is my favourite type.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
If it's a style I've barely done anything with, maybe watercolours? Otherwise, maybe slightly more realistic semi-realism? I don't think you can ever really master an art style, that implies you're in complete control of the artistic process.
What was your first favourite?
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Nowadays I favourite depictions of nature the most.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I'm not sure it would be fair to pick an all-time favourite artist, there are loads of inspirational, talented and hard-working artists here ><. That said, is the artist who has probably been the biggest inspiration to me, there is something about her art which seems to speak to my soul. One of the first deviations I saw which made a lasting impression on me was her piece 'Too Late' . Her webmanga is also one of the main reasons why I've been planning a webcomic for many years, her art and writing is amazing and I really recommend looking through her gallery and reading her manga ><!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
That's a secret @_@
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Mechanical pencil (0.3mm), eraser and paper, and tablet and paint tool SAI/Clip Studio Paint.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I usually draw at my computer desk, I'm not sure where the most inspirational place would be.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I don't have a lot of strong, pleasant memories specific to DeviantART, to be honest mostly I quietly look at other people's galleries and art, and sometimes upload some of my art. Finding really good artists is probably my favourite thing to do here. I've never gotten the hang of the social aspect of this website, though I would kind of like to I'm too shy and I don't know how to start. I'd probably have favourite memories from this site if I'd gotten to know some people here.
