Sewing (clothing, quilting and plush toys)
General Crafting (jewelry and accessories, doll modification, sculpting, and tinkering)
Cosplay (character cosplay and historical)
History (the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Victorian and Edwardian Age, and the 50s and 60s)
Science (animals, marine biology, chemistry, medicine)
The Spanish language and culture (I've taken Spanish I in school and am still learning)
Favorite authors: Christopher Moore, Lloyd Alexander, Carl Hiaasen, George Orwell, C. S. Lewis

Favorite shows: My Little Pony, Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Sherlock, Psych, Kitchen Nightmares, World's Dumbest, Bravest Warriors (though I don't like Adventure Time oddly enough)
Favorite YouTubers: Markiplier, Pewdiepie, Jacksepticeye
Things I don't like (allow me to apologize in advance: ) Anime (but not all of it,) John Green, neckbeards and "nice guys," Adventure Time, and what I call artistic genericism (when artists duplicate ideas and themes that have already been expressed ad nauseum, such as the criticism of religion and the criticism of capitalism)
How long have you been on DeviantArt? Two years; I began in 2013.
What does your username mean? Oceanblue is my main pony OC (pictured below.) Some of you who watch me may remember when my username was xIndie; Indie is Oceanblue's stage name when she's a DJ in the Equestria Girls world (also pictured below.)
Describe yourself in three words. Mercurial, deliberate, compassionate.
Are you left or right handed? Despite my terrible handwriting, I am indeed right handed.
What is your favourite type of art to create? Doll customs! I have so many ideas and so much inspiration, but so little time! (It's also an excuse to buy cute dolls.)
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Music. I am an unredeemably atrocious singer, and it saddens me so much.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Definitely pony art, especially pretty digital paintings of princesses.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Yaya Han. She's insanely talented, absolutely beautiful, and a very nice person.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? 3moninja. We were best friends in 9th grade, but I moved away. I would love to see her again! If I could meet a celebrity artist, though, I'd love to meet Kellee Riley. Not only have her Monster High character designs been very influential to my art, but I'd love to have an art card made so I can give it to my friend, an even bigger MH fan than I am.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I will always be grateful to for being my very first doll commissioner!
What are your preferred tools to create art? For character designs and regular drawings, I use colored Sharpie markers, waterbase markers or Prismacolor pencils. My favorite paint is definitely watercolor, even if I'm not painting a chibi. I haven't quite mastered acrylics, and oils are just horrible. For dolls, I paint their faces with craft acrylics and I use Saran hair from dollyhair.com. Pony puffs are made from polar fleece. I used to use a Fujifilm point-and-shoot digital camera, but the images were low-quality and the white balance was completely wrong. Now I use the camera on my phone, a Galaxy Note 4.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Everywhere! In my room, in the kitchen, outside...I've even done a few watercolors out in the field. When I draw, paint, or craft, I prefer to watch YouTube videos (Jacksepticeye, Markiplier, Pewdiepie, and sometimes Equestria Girls shorts,) or listen to music (Deadmau5, Porter Robinson, and sometimes classical music like Debussy and Rachmaninov.)
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Finding 3moninja again after three years of not talking to her, and receiving my first commission ever.
|I am offering commissions for pen-and-ink drawings, colored drawings and watercolor paintings. I do not accept points; commissions can be paid for in USD via PayPal. You do not have to pay until I show you that I am finished with your artwork. Watercolor paintings will be shipped to you for a flat $5 shipping charge, and if you order a drawing, you can choose whether or not you want it sent to you (same price.) Important: If you do not pay for your commission within four weeks of completion, your name will be added to a blacklist- you will not be allowed to commission me again, and other artists will be cautioned not to serve you. I will try my best to be timely; please return the favor. (Also, I'm sorry there are no images; I can't figure out how to embed pictures into a custom box. If you can show me how to do so, I'll reward you with points!) |
