As promised in my last post, I have created a special little Q&A post, to say thanks to everyone that reads my blog and to celebrate a year of blogging.
This is the most excited, I’ve ever been about a post and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting to over 5 questions. So, getting over double that, was just incredible and I would like to say Thank you, to everyone who provided questions. All your questions were awesome and I really appreciate, you all taking part in this post. I’ve linked them all, in this post and would highly recommend checking their blogs out (They are all just so amazing).
So, without further ado, I give you Ask Me Anything:
1.What got you into drawing?
It’s hard to put my finger on what exactly got me into drawing, but strangely I think it was stress. I started doodling on my notebooks, as a way to relieve stress and it kind of got addictive. I moved on from doodle in notebooks, to drawing animals covered in decorative designs in a sketchbook and it all snowballed from there.
2.What is something you would one day like to do with your blog but haven’t gotten around to yet?
A giant art collaboration. This is some very wishful thinking, but I’d love to rally a load of bloggers together, and create one hell of a digital art post.
3.Is there a post/piece you really like but that didn’t get many views?
Zombie 101. It didn’t get too many views, but creating that jokey little post, about how to survive a zombie apocalypse was a lot of fun.
4.What is the weirdest/funniest/best search term to lead to your site?
The weirdest search term was “lucy.boo pic”. Haven’t got the slightest notion what this even means. All I know is someone was looking pictures of a Lucy.boo, which sounds like it might be something creepy and perverted.
The funniest term has to be “MAN BOOBS”. In capital letters and all. Someone must have really wanted to see some man boob, that day. Too bad my blog doesn’t have any man boobies. They must have been so disappointed.
The best search term (as in the most popular) is funny Irish insults. It comes up surprisingly often.
5.Do you believe in something that most people would say isn’t real? (like Santa, or dragons)
Without sounding crazy, I believe in aliens, other dimensions and sea monsters.
The universe is just too big, for there not to be another planet supporting life (doubt they fly around in space, kidnapping humans or even have the technology to do so).
Also, there is some very messed up looking creatures in the sea, so there’s bound to be a few that we could class as sea monsters.
6.If you could change how your blood looked, how would you make it look?
Bleeding rainbows, would be a lot more pleasant, so I’d make my blood rainbow coloured. Also, it be awesome if it glowed in the dark, too. It would be so much easier to tell, if I teared my ear cartilage piercings or got a nose bleed, when its dark.
7.Do you have any plans to use your drawing skills for any other media-like comics or animation?
As a bit of fun, I was thinking about creating a comic strip for this blog. But, I have no real big or brilliant plans, to enter into the comic book industry. I really like illustrating, though and would love to be able to do something with that someday.
8.What’s your favorite fruit?
Pineapple, when its slightly on the bitter side. It’s just so juicy and delicious.
But from experience, it’s not a good idea to try to eat a whole bitter pineapple, at once (even if you are a hungry, hungry student and too tired/broke to cook dinner). It makes your tongue and lips go numb, for hours after.
9.What’s your favorite thing to draw?
When Digital drawing, it’s those little stumpy chubby big-head characters. They’re so cute and really fun to draw, especially when turning movie monsters into one of these characters.
On paper, it would be pencil drawings. There’s just something really peaceful about making a pencil drawing.
10.Do you have any advice for other people who are too scared to share their drawings?
If you’re extremely scared, try taking baby steps. Start with sharing your drawings with trusted friends and build your confidence from there.
If you’re feeling brave enough to share your drawings with the world. My advice would be, to try to find somewhere with supportive people, to share your drawings. In general, they’ll only make helpful comment on your work and not rip into it.
Also, remember to not be too critical of your own work (which can be really hard, at times) and to have fun.
11.Are you open for a Netflix Death Note 2?
Hell no! Sequels are usually worse than the first movie, so I fear to think about the monstrosity that would be Netflix Death Note 2.
In saying that, I did give the first Netflix Death Note, a fair review and reviewed it as something separate from the anime and manga. But as a fan of the anime, that movie was kind of painful to watch. There was just so much wrong with that movie and I doubt a sequel would be any different.
12.Are you willing to carve melons for halloween this year?
Bahahaha…. that ghost pumpkin really did look like a melon.
Well, it is melon season soon and carving a melon would be fun, so I’d be willing. You might not even have to wait until Halloween. I might not be able to contain me melon carving excitement until then.
So, this is the end of our Q & A session. I hope you have enjoyed this post. It has been incredibly fun to make and as always Thanks for reading.
