The deviant that is being featured and interviewed today is:
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Sure My real name is India, but everybody calls me Indie, I'm 16 in a fortnight and I live in rainy old England. ... That's about it ...
=Indae, how did you find deviantART?
=conniekidd introduced me to this site actually We studied fine art together, she's awesome got check her out! I didn't create an account straight away, but... here I am.
How did you get your username, or what does it symbolize?
I have too many pairs of converses 11 pairs and counting... And of course there is my second account ~converse-kidd-stamps, but I'm guessing the name for that is quite obvious
What do you like most about deviantART?
This is a hard one actually~ I'm not entirely sure what I do love about deviant art, I like the community feel that there is, (expecially in the emoticonist community), I like the fact it's easy to interact with other young artists and get inspired, but probably what keeps me coming back is that fact that it's just plain addictive.
Are there any deviantART features that you have never used?
Urmm... I haven't used any of the print-selling features But that's mainly because my deviations are too small to be printed I guess it depends what you mean by features, because there are also many 'places' on deviantart that i don't often visit, such as the forums.
How old were you when you first became interested in art?
I've been drawing since before I can remember, I first became interested in art as a career when i went for work experience at a large graphic design and adverstising company in London, (BBH) and worked on an advertisement chain for persil (You might know it as Omo, washing up stuff). It really was brilliant
Which artists (off and on dA) inspire you?
I think the most 'inspirational' person artwise in my life was my father, he taught me how to correctly use water colours, how to proportionalise etc, just generally got me interested in art as a hobbie~
Although I think it's also fair to say that i'm influenced a lot by others, expecially those on dA like
`bad-blood, who's technical ability is amazing. =conniekidd, ~Nironan12, ~frecklefaced29 and a lot more people I should mention but the list would be far too long!
What are your pet peeves on dA?
Recently, there has been a lot of controversy about buying pageviews with points. What is your view on this?
Oh yea- I heard about this.
What type of music are you into?
I listen to a lot of different types of music actually, all of which are quite contrasting. For instance I shall being going to see Mayday Parade in concert with ~fishrar in a couple of months, however I also enjoy music such as Mr. Blue sky - by the ELO (Old school ), so generally it just depends in what type of mood i'm in.
What kind of movies are you into?
I the movie Love Actually, directed by Richard Curtis, a definate must see! But i'm also partial to a few animations, like Wall-e and Bambi!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Urm... If you want to know anything else, there's a link to my formspring on my page, or shoot me a note I don't bite~ And thanks to ^ladygagz for asking me to do this.
I'd like to say a huge thanks to =Indae for taking the time to be interviewed.
