How long have you been on DeviantArt? According to my page, I've been here since June 6, 2011!
What does your username mean? "Arekkusu" is the phonetic spelling of the Japanese pronunciation of "Alex," my real name, and "San" is just -san (you can tell I was a weeb when I joined)
Describe yourself in 3 words. Passionate, enthusiastic, lazy
Are you left- or right-handed? It depends. If the task involves the use of only one hand (drawing, writing, throwing something, etc.), I'm right-handed. If it involves both hands (swinging a baseball bat, sweeping, etc.), I'm left-handed. I'm also left-footed, although that wasn't in the question.
What was your first deviation? Oh god, I think it was a picture of Yusei Fudo and Jack Atlas. I tried to make them chibis, but they didn't come across that way at all. I deleted it a long time ago.
What is your favorite type of art to create? When I started out, I absolutely loved drawing. Now, however, I have absolutely fallen in love with photography. I love travelling with a camera in my hand, and my dream job would be to work as a photographer for National Geographic, or some magazine on a similar scale.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? I WOULD TOTALLY MASTER DIGITAL ART. I DON'T KNOW HOW YALL DO THE THING WITHOUT THE THING LOOKING LIKE A CRAPPY PHOTOSHOP PAINTING TEACH ME YOUR WAYS PLEASE
What type of art do you tend to favorite the most? I'm pretty sure it's digital paintings. Like I said, I have a fascination with them.
Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist? Probably DarkKenjie (I forgot how to link to people's pages on here with the lil avatars)
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? See above
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? Well, Malindachan (again, I forgot how to do the lil icon thingy) is the one who inspired me to make a page in the first place. I was binge-watching her YouTube videos during summer break in 2011, and she kept mentioning this website, so I decided to check it out
What are your preferred tools to create art? A camera and my own two hands
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Anywhere I can be close to nature. I love finding all the beauty it has to offer!
What is your favorite DeviantArt memory? I'd say the day my "Quidditch Match" deviation hit 1,000 views. I'd never had a piece get that much exposure before, and it hasn't happened since, though I do have another doodle approaching the 1k mark. My only regret is that it wasn't my best work, even at the time.
