How long have you been on DeviantArt? 7 Years. I joined on 9th May 2008. How time flys....
What does your username mean? We My original name, Shadowtheumbreon, was just based of my Pokemon OC of the same name. Later on, my OC's name changed to Shida so my username changed to match. I liked that the change was small so my username would still be recognizable to my watchers.
Describe yourself in three words. Skittish, dorky and good-humored.
Are you left or right handed? Right
What is your favourite type of art to create? I enjoy drawing toony animals as well as more detailed tonal drawings in pen.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Watercolour
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? I upload mostly digital but I tend to prefer drawing traditionally in pen.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I have met a lot of my friends from here already but I would really like to meet all of them together and go for a picnic or somthing <3
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? A lot of the friends I have made here have helped me out in various ways throughout the years, whether it be with confidence, help with art or advice in general. Cas and Lydz helped me gain confidence and introduced me to more people. And I owe a lot to Holly and my other cat nerd buddies for helping get me started with youtube MAPs and animations. I <3 them all.
What are your preferred tools to create art? Paint tool SAI for drawings and Adobe Flash for animations.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? On the computer or in my room. The internet is an unlimited source of information and inspiration. And my room is a nice quiet place for brainstorming and coming up with ideas. But I can create whether I feel comfortable.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? At one point, a bunch of my friends and I were planning a animated series called Call Out War. The idea, of course, fell through but we all created a lot of collabs, drawings and other things when first preparing for it. It was a lot of fun even though it ended up not going anywhere.
