Aarpie (AR-pee) is a nickname I was given in my design classes in college, a combination of my first and last name. Aarpie100 has been my tag for countless IM and gaming things for YEARS lol. When I decided to make a new account, I went with the standard lol3. Describe yourself in three words.Big ole goofball4. Are you left or right handed?Southpaw, for the win! 5. What was your first deviation?
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?Sequential art is my favorite. Storytelling is my passion, both in written form and with pictures. Comics and illustrations like that are my lifeblood. 7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?Digital painting. I'm horribly jealous of all of the people who can render such beautiful works digitally. I'd love to do the same. 8. What was your first favourite?
I remember this one making me laugh a lot lol. 9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?Anything that catches my eye, really. If something is done well - lines, colors, storytelling, whatever - I'll fave it. Even if it's only one of those things. I love seeing people do stuff well 10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?Eff this question lol. Too many to pick one 11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Oh, that's easy:
. She's awesome, and has been a massive inspiration to my art whether she knows it or not. 12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
One and the same.
has been such an awesome person to me. She's a fantastic artist, and I love seeing her art on here or FB or anywhere else. And I gotta say, I'm still surprised she's not annoyed at me for all the questions I ask her about the craft lol13. What are your preferred tools to create art?I have a hard time making the transition to digital with anything but colors. For line art, I have to have pencil and pen on paper. That scritch scritch on the paper is like a balm to the sole for me. 14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Outdoors. I love sitting out in the open air and drawing. I also found the train a really great place to draw when I took it regularly. Such great faces and characters 15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Making the friends I've made here. Some are still friends after 12 years... that's pretty awesome
