Is woov. Is green.

This was going to be a realism piece, but then I got bored of searching for a good ref, and somewhere along the line everything turned green. And snow happened. Yeah....

I'm not very good at drawing specific characters, and the majority of the time I just invent a new design for whatever I'm in the mood to draw there and then. I'm curious as to whether you guys prefer to see art of specific characters which might have their own plotlines, history and relevant personalities, or if it doesn't matter to you whether it's a character you can get more information on, or just a random one. Thoughts? ^^

Enjoy! :D

Wauw DeviantART, you is old. Posting journals is a fun way to celebrate though, so here's my contribution!

LETS DO DIS!!

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
     
    A disturbingly long time. 7 years to be precise.

  2. What does your username mean? 
    Golphee was originally GoldenPhoenix101, changed to GoldenPhoenix100. I made the username when I was about 13 and wanted a username with a colourful fantasy creature. Even then I didn't like it much, but it's been my default username for so long now that it feels inherently me. I like Golphee a lot better though.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Wholly, indisputably insane

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    I am right handed! Supposedly lefties are better at maths and logical things, and whilst I can't say whether or not this is true, I can certainly vouch for my complete ineptitude for such things.

  5. What was your first deviation?

    This gloriousness:
    winged lupe by GoldenPhoenix101
    IT IS BEAUTEHFULL!

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Painterly, wildlife art. I'm a lover of texture, which is one of the reasons I prefer drawing animals and nature to people and manmade objects. As a general rule, scales, feathers, leaves and fur are much more enjoyable for me to create than skin and metal/plastic.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    DANCE. Dudes who get on the dance floor and manage to somehow look not only appealing, but also avoid causing damage to themselves, others, or any inanimate objects in the immediate area have my everlasting envy. When I dance, things get messy

    Within drawn art, I would love to be more proficient at cell shading. I've tried it a few times, but my brain cannot get to grips with it.

  8. What was your first favourite?
    Hidalgo by WildSpiritWolf
    I loved this picture because it reminded me of a toy horse I used to have growing up. Dat nostalgia...

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    When I was younger, and hopelessly incapable of creating pictures of my own with any noteworthy quality, I would favourite anything bearing a resemblance to an image I would have wanted to create for myself. Now that I'm comfortable in my ability to create at least a closer approximation to the image I have in my mind, I tend to favourite artists whose techniques I admire and want to try out for myself. Of course, fanart is always amazing and faveworthy too!

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    This is a brutal, evil question! I have loads of people I love and admire, both as talented artists, and as really nice individuals! Picking only one, I think I have to say :iconwanderingdragon379: because of the amazing conversations and art exchanges we shared. The quality of her art always pushed me to improve my own, and I will always love her as my first, and best internet friend.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    LOTS OF PEOPLE! Wanderer from above of course, also :iconrinkamari: to whom I owe a great deal for her endless patience whilst I butcher her language to her over Skype, and for being great fun to chat with. Also :iconcrazyrodeogirl: who sadly isn't around as much anymore, but who is always awesome! Plus, all of the lovely people who are so kind to me and about my pictures here on DA - I can honestly say I'd love to meet all of you, and if anyone's ever in the UK, give me a shout!

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    I don't think there are many people on DA who haven't impacted me to some extent or another Sometimes after a trying day, a single friendly comment from a complete stranger is enough to turn my mood around. Likewise, the anonymity that is inherently part of friendships on the internet means it can sometimes be easier to talk about your problems to virtual friends than to real ones. And of course, the endless, abundant inspiration that comes from exposure to what truly is the richest selection of world-class artwork is a treasure in and of itself.


  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    MAH TABLET. I do not do traditional art nearly as much as I should. Mainly because of the cost of art materials, and the lack of anywhere to set up a canvas or even a drawing board where I live. It's lazy of me, but it's much easier to just turn on the computer and get Photoshop up than it is to go and set up a load of paints, dig out some turpentine, shove newspaper all over the carpet, and perch uncomfortably on the edge of the dining table with a sketchpad or canvas.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    This is a dumb question. The place you create art is very rarely as inspirational as the places you go to be inspired. I am fortunate enough to have access to numerous areas of countryside, and there is little I enjoy more, nor feel more inspired from, than nature. But I create art on my computer - in my room, or at an office desk, or wherever the computer happens to be at the time.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    It's not so much a single memory, but for me the very best thing is when people tell me:
    "I love looking at your earliest submissions and comparing them to what you draw now. Seeing how you've improved is what inspires me to keep drawing".
    I never understand why people delete their old, crappy artwork as soon as they reach a certain degree of skill. I can only assume it's from a sense of shame in what they feel is their inferior artwork. But for me, I'm every bit as proud of my ancient, horrible pieces as I am of my newest ones, because they tell the story of my journey to the artist and person I am today. Knowing that people can be inspired by that is one of the best feelings in the world.

    I mean, look at these beauties!

The World Above Our Eyes by Golphee
The World Above Our Eyes
I found this guy decomposing in my "2013" folder, and figured since I didn't have anything else to do, I might as well pick him up again. There's a fair few anatomy errors left over from my dismal artistic past, but I slapped enough colours on that it hopefully shouldn't be too brutal on the eyes :P

Also, to those of you who use Tumblr, I'm curious. I don't currently have an account, although there's a general air of "Tumblr is the new Deviantart" going around. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but if anyone uses it regularly, I'm curious to know how it compares to here. What's it best used for, is the community good, etc?

Enjoy!
