1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been on DeviantArt since August 17th 2005, when I was 20 years old. So it's been pretty much 10 years since I became a member.2. What does your username mean?
It means "huge fan of tabasco" (yes, the hot sauce). Although I enjoy spicy dishes and tabasco, the story behind it was a different one: As I was looking for a new regular nickname, I was told by my older sister that her husband used to be given mean names because of his black hair and slightly dark skin. Like "Indian" or "Tabasco fanatic". The last one strangely inspired me because it sounded so random and I stopped searching. 3. Describe yourself in three words.
Capable of improvement.4. Are you left or right handed?
I am right handed.5. What was your first deviation?
It was the drawing "And it goes on...", uploaded on August 17th 2005. It's about the pain caused by terrible, traumatic memories of Holocaust survivors.6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
I enjoy traditional art the most because I'm also more used to it. When it comes to motifs, I am torn apart. I love doing fanarts but also know that original art is at least important. 7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital paintings. It's incredible what others can do with it. And I'm pretty much at the beginning because it took long until I had my own drawing tablet. After that, creating proper animations would be awesome.8. What was your first favourite?
It's the fantastic horror movie artwork "Horror Movies 2" by my good friend
. She also was the one who drew my attention to DeviantArt.9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I think it doesn't depend on the media. I believe I fave whatever inspires me the most ("I wanna draw/paint like THIS!!!") or whatever is a great representation of my interests and characteristics. Years ago I used to fave almost whatever impressed me but meanwhile I act more selectively.10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
That would be
. She brought me to DeviantArt, thus has stuck with me the longest here. She also has inspired me the most with her wide range of skills and generally great artworks. And she's one of the very few DA friends that I know personally 11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Ooh, not easy...maybe
because he's not only very talented but also seems to be a very nice, interesting guy hanging out with.12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
As I mentioned: my friend
showed me DeviantArt in the first place and has kept inspiring me there.
But other than that there's no other certain DA member that has impacted my life this much (wether in a good or bad way). Other members, watched by me or not, have given me inspirations and advices here and there, communicated with me. So: normal, peaceful community life, nothing intensive.13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I love drawing with coloured pencils and painting with water colours. I think this is where I'm best at. And working with these tools is also a bit relaxing. The artworks I'm most satisfied with were mostly done with these dools.
Also I love to work with Adobe Photoshop, especially for colorizing drawings.14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
If you mean a place where I draw or paint then I say that there's no "favourite" place, I always create art at home in my room at my desk.15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
There's no such thing but it always has made me especially happy whenever lots of people faved and commented an artwork of mine. It's very motivating.
