How long have you been on DeviantArt?
What does your username mean?
When SOE ruined SWG, many of the refugees went to SecondLife. My best friend was one of them and she told me to come join her. She said, "Pick the last name Tempura, like me!" I think she picked it because she thought it sounded like tempest... Little did we know we were setting ourselves up to be called "Delicious"! I have forever been known as Rayne. There was a huge RP legacy created around the name so the Tempura just stuck... I could change it but it just wouldn't sound right.
Describe yourself in three words.
Silly, committed, alwaysright >_>
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
I wanted a tablet so very badly so I could create my own manga! This was the first drawing I did. Alas, the manga was never illustrated because, quite frankly, it's hard work...and I just don't have the skill to draw all the panels!
What is your favourite type of art to create?
I don't know that I have a favorite. It used to be manga but lately it's just pictures of my video game characters, haha.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'm not sure what to call it. Painting realistically, beautifully...? More than anything, I really want to grasp an understanding of lighting and color use, brush use, and depth. If I could do that, I think I would be really satisfied.
What was your first favourite?
was my first favorite Deviant. I loved her Mass Effect and Dragon Age artwork so much!
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Funny comics, beautiful works that I admire and have a quality I wish I could produce, really cool and unique designs, and kickass pictures.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I don't like picking favorite artists. Picking favorite artists is like picking a favorite band or a favorite movie... There are too many genres, too many moods, for me to pick one. But I can say that I do adore ! He is truly wonderful and I admire him not only as an artist but as a person. But there are so many artists I admire, truly. and and and , and there are just too many to name.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
because she's adorable and funny and I think she would be a blast to hang out with. xD
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Through his instructional videos, has inspired me to work harder in my attempt to improve my art. And, in general, the community has made me feel confident in sharing my art. Not because I think I'm so great, but because they have made me unafraid. On DeviantArt, I don't have to be scared I'm not good enough. I've never had anyone tell me something I drew was awful or that I should quit painting. All of my experiences have been kind and constructive. I'm very blessed to be here with such wonderful people, being admired by someone, admiring others, and always striving to do better.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
My tablet and Manga Studio. I would like to get to know Photoshop someday, though. But I used to draw with pen and paper all the time. My notes in high school were covered in art. Even in college, there was always a doodle somewhere in my notes and books.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
At my computer... I guess? I would love to get a Cintiq or something that would allow me to draw digitally outside.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Learning a total stranger bought my self-published book.
