I've been on dA for four years now. Surprisingly
2) What does your username mean?
I.. well.... ahahh.. I was trying to go for a dark, ominous, and poetic thing for my PMD2: Explorers of Time/Sky fanfic. "Night Eternal, Eternal Night". And what's more dark, ominous, and poetic than Latin? So my brilliant sophomore self came up with (the most likely inaccurate Latin translation) "Nyx Eterna, Eterna Nyx", and I just really really liked how EternaNyx sounded. So when the time came for me to make a dA username I was just: that's it.
Even to this day I really like how eternanyx sounds. Originally eternal night was supposed to be a terrifying darkness, where you needed to find the light. But now my association with it is calming to me: a moonlit eternal night with soft clouds reflecting its glow and twinkling stars. So tranquil and beautiful. I can't really think of using anything else.
3) Describe yourself in three words.
Impetuous. Docile. Ditzy/Silly/Aloof
4) Are you left or right handed?
Right handed like the average person
5) What was your first deviation?
This is Lilly my mysterious Mary Sue of Light. She is buried underneath tons of scraps and shame for my comment word choices.
6) What is your favourite type of art to create?
Fluff, Fluff, Fluff, Fluff. Cute things. With a slight thing for massive feels
7) If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I, uh... Don't know exactly. Still figuring out my own. I'm not sure how comfortable I would be mastering someone else's. But if we're talking about genre... I want to figure out how to draw the abstract concepts I have in my head. Images that look like distorted reality and convey emotion. I really want to do that someday.
8) What was your first favourite?
Who even knows. My favorites are a bottomless pit of likes. Four years of little organization--that only really started in the third year.
9) What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I tend to favor art that I find to be either cute or intriguing. I'm not really sure. I'm sort of an everything and anything type of person, so long as I like it--FEELING. I LIKE ART THAT HAS A STRONG sENSE OF FEELING TO IT. allfsjla;flsldlafl (I tend to think of what the thing I'm trying to describe is halfway through a thing. Don't worry )
10) Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I have to pick just one?
Ooft, this would be a hard one. But I can't do it... I really like DestinyBlue because it's so emotionally driven. The colors. The lighting. The expression. Everything. All of it centered on a feeling, scenario, or concept. It's a visual way of conveying emotion, thought, and feeling. To describe what you can't with words.
ShadeofShinon's work is amazing. Such a fantastic style . Her use of traditional and digital media is so masterful, and I absolutely love the realistic take she has with pokemon designs. Lots of humor and emotion are conveyed in her pieces.
sulfurbunny. Best MS Paint (and then some) artists I've ever seen. Such a great art style with an excellent use of lighting, background, and color. AND THEIR PMD FAN COMIC. IF YOU HAVE NOT READ PMD: VICTORY FIRE DO IT NOW! It incorporates elements from all of the pokemon game series (Main Game, PMD Games, Ranger Games, Colosseum Games) and blends them together into an elaborate story.
RoCkBaT has such beautiful pencil drawings. I love the vivid color and cool character designs. Seriously, the coordination of the outfits are spot on. There is also a lot of PMD team gijinka designs, and I'm such a sucker for those
And there are a lot more, but I have to move on ahhhh
11) If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
OMG, are you serious? I would love to meet DigiC300, VirtualManectric, PizzaPotatoNBacon, Chai-Leaf and so many other lovely folks I've met through RP groups
12) How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
DigiC300 was one of the first few people I met on Steam and has been a good friend. She listens to me when I'm incredibly frustrated, joins me in a feels parade, and shares cool webcomics
VirtualManectric has been very patient with me, and I feel like I've learned a lot from xem. Particularly about perspective and certain situations. Thank you for being there when I need to vent. Xe also gives some clear-cut and logical advice that's really helped me out. It's also terrible fun writing fluff and creating things with you.
These are the two that I've developed the most connection/dependence with, but I send out all my love to the many good friends I've made in the RP community. You guys are great!
13) What are your preferred tools to create art?
Can't beat pencil, pen, and paper.
14) What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Creating art mostly takes place in my room. Where I can sit on my bed and draw. Possibly why my back is so bad.
BUT I draw a lot of inspiration from nature/scenery, images from online, and books.
15) What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
