DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 9, 2015, 4:52 AM
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    :bulletgreen: Apparently for 7 years now.

  2. What does your username mean?
    :bulletgreen: Windmaedchen is German and means 'wind girl'. Correct spelling of the German word is Windmädchen. ae is a (or was a) substitute for the special character ä.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    :bulletgreen: Daydreamer
    :bulletgreen: Honest and sincere from my point of view, blunt/direct/cold/"German" from other peoples point of view
    :bulletgreen: Not alone on my own- kind of person.

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    :bulletgreen: Right handed.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    :bulletgreen: Enforcer by Windmaedchen

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    :bulletgreen: xD Happy sort of things, that don't include drama or the heavy use of the colour black.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    :bulletgreen: Realism.

  8. What was your first favourite?
    :bulletgreen: Old and new by 7UV733 by :icon7uv733:  She initially created the account for me, I believe, but I then had found my preferred username and created my own. xD

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

    Axienn: The Many-handed by Gerrero-Gottentot random strange sketches :bulletgreen:FLYaway with me by fionafoto aesthetically nice things  :bulletgreen:War Torn Splicer Bunny Rabbit Mask by Angelic-Artisan crafts :bulletgreen: Save the Queen by hyamei fanart  :bulletgreen: Earth's Engine Exposed by priteeboy stuff that takes your breath away  :bulletgreen: sketch SH by N-Foxx Sherlock Holmes related things <3 :bulletgreen: The Night Before Christmas by GoodOldBaz Things that I inspired people to draw <3

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    :bulletgreen: I don't think I can name someone here. xD There are too many stunning artists out there... but I'd say, some of my favourites manage to draw things well of the current fandom I'm in. And "well" includes every skill level. ;)

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    :bulletgreen: Well... I've met :iconcsupernova: already, and I hope we shall again! But apart from that... maybe... :icongandalfia:, whom I adored for her artwork and whom I miss and would to shake and say "come back please" ... but I must be happy with the fact she's well and that's that. :)
    I also wished to see another dear friend, who left due to the unkind nature of the internet. But I am in touch, and I know she's well, too, so that's that, too. xD

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    :bulletgreen: I suppose, see above! Two of them I very much like the old days to come for... xD And then, of course, there are the odd images here and there that would make me instant-sit-down-and-draw something. Such as

    :bulletgreen: Frogwares Holmes by Windmaedchen because of Raven by dominuself
    :bulletgreen: Stone Dragon by Windmaedchen because of In The Shadow Of A Temple by LiLaiRa
    :bulletgreen: Jane by Windmaedchen because of .Masae and Yin. by kit-n-kibs

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    :bulletgreen: I love MyPaint for Ubuntu and ... the standards, Photoshop and Illustrator from Adobe. As well as the pencil. Sometimes. But less often. :/

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    :bulletgreen: Everywhere. xD It's just a matter of getting of my lazy bum to actually bring my inspiration to paper. xD

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    :bulletgreen: ... There is nothing I would say sets itself apart from other memories because it's so special. It's all pretty good life experience that's going on here. :D

I presume you've heard of the new film Mr. Holmes, starring Ian McKellen....have you seen it yet?  I plan to do so as soon as it hits my area...looking forward to seeing your artistic interpretations!
Windmaedchen Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2015  Professional General Artist
I have! I've been to see it on its first day of release here in the UK. :D
Weeeeeell.... it hasn't been bad actually, and I am very glad that I can make it so much less romantic than I feared it would be, which is a very good sign. xD I hadn't yet thought of doing some Mr. Holmes related artwork... although... I really should. Even if it's my own Holmes, with Roger tending to the bees. I think I should draw something, indeed. :nod:

:w00t: Definitely some bee-tending scenes!!

Hey Luvlee, long time no talk, how's it been huh? How're you doing and all that?
Windmaedchen Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2015  Professional General Artist
Good Good, thanks. :D All well. Still here. xD What have you been up to?
zutarianxtaang Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, that's good lol, I'd be upset if you suddenly disappeared! :D
Ah, I'm good, working on getting out of school, and still growing up.
Can't believe I'm 20 this year 8I Reminds me you've known me since I was 13 lol.
I'm looking through your gallery and what not and I'm surprised about how much your style has changed!
Windmaedchen Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015  Professional General Artist
Goodness gracious! I can't believe I am THAT old now. xD How nice to see you've grown, too. Hahahaha. Oho, good luck on that! School-FurtherEducation-Work changes are quite an adventure.

Yes, well, I haven't done nothing during these years, I suppose my artwork goes somewhere by now.

If I can get SH vs jack the ripper really cheap should I get that or should I wait and save up for the testament of SH?
Windmaedchen Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Professional General Artist
Oh boy, that's hard! I LOVED the Jack The Ripper one, it's just so immersive and wow. The graphic is older of course but that hardly matters. xD Testament is WOW too, but the graphics are higher and more demanding. I think, since both are same good, maybe go get JTR first. Unless you can definitely play Testament... then maybe Testament. xD... Haha, god, I don't know. Whichever is easier for you. In the end, get both eventually! xD
GoodOldBaz Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I think I will go for jtr since testemend is SO Mich more expensive. Thakes!:)
CSupernova Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2015

Windmaedchen Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2015  Professional General Artist

Windmaedchen Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2015  Professional General Artist

Oh man I'm so glad I found you here on deviantART, I keep seeing Frogwares post your stuff on facebook and I don't have a Tumblr, so I am very happy right now. Please keep making your awesome comics.
(PS-I played Crimes and Punishments and it was amazing)
Windmaedchen Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Professional General Artist
Yay! Thanks a lot!
I may do some more comics, but very likely not coloured. There are few more moments, after all, that really need to be drawn. xD I love those games.
nitefise Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh, that's okay, sometimes simplicity is better than loading something with colour haha :thumbsup:
