How long have you been on DeviantArt? - On this account 6 years, off/on. But I was on a different account a year or two prior to making this one, because I lost my password ^.^'
What does your username mean? - Jade is (as a stone) used to represent friendship, loyalty, and honor... They're all aspects of myself I have always been proud of. It's also the name I'm legally going to change to when the time is right. As for "Merciful"... I've always joked about it sounding better than "Wrathful", but that's not really all there is to it. I aspire to be a very forgiving person, so I always figured if I associate "mercy" with who I am then it's who I'll be. I think it's helped to be honest, but I'm hoping to move on to a different username sometime in the future... I moved on FA from JadeMerciful to NobleSir and I'd like to do that here as well but idk if it's worth the effort ^.^'
Describe yourself in three words. - Loyal, Blunt, Friendly?
Are you left or right handed? - right handed for writing/drawing, left handed for all else.
What was your first deviation? - Ah not proud of this but I was like 12 or so and it was fan art of Ino from Naruto that I had recolored in Paint :sweat: I was little, and soo proud of changing EVERY pixel's colour... Everyone said it looked great and that's part of what got me to keep on trying to make my own art.
What is your favourite type of art to create? - I love doing quick "still life" art in charcoal. It's really fun~
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? - Oh man, if I could MASTER digital painting? I'd be soo happy~ That or the art of comic making @.@'
What was your first favourite? - If my first account's favorites are to be believed- though I suspect I simply deleted any "deviations have been placed in storage" that I had in my favorites prior to that lol.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? - Fan art I guess. That or digital paintings or character designs.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? - That's really hard... The one I've been watching longest I suppose makes the most sense to promo... AsheRhyder They're a total sweetheart and have honestly helped me grow a lot as a person.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? - Either the aforementioned AsheRhyder or H-appysorry
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? - Both Ashe and HappySorry have been huge inspirations to me, both as an artist and as a person. Not to sound melodramatic but they've saved my life, especially Ashe. In a very bad time of my life, she was very kind and gave me some faith back in the goodness of humanity.
What are your preferred tools to create art? - Either Wacom Tablet and Paint Tool Sai, any pen and paper, or charcoal and news print.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? - Honestly place doesn't matter as long as I have music and my tools.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? - Getting a comment from one of the artists I idolize, telling me a piece I did was very good and that they look(ed) forward to seeing what I would draw next ^///^
