The deviant that is being featured and interviewed today is:
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Oh hai everyone! My name is Jude. I am 19 years old and im from the Philippines I am a wannabe children's illustrator and im slowly in the process of making it happen and make my own story book soon you know, my dream is to see everyone smile with my stories and illustrations and i hope that this will be a success soon. I love to make things my own way, looking at my style and performing it. But still, i seek help and inspiration to those around me. that's why i love the community so much I am also a blogger. You can check out my blog at here -> [link]
Currently, I am working on a couple of projects on and off deviantart and that makes me super busy. I just hope that i will be able to enjoy my summer vacation next month
I love to explore! Exploring stuffs is really my thing too
^JCROXAS, how did you find deviantART?
I found dA through my classmate in highschool. But it was only during my college days that i decided to make my own account and it was only a year after that i became more active here, especially when i first had my first subscription given by ~Tamilia
How did you get your username, or what does it symbolize?
Well, ^JCROXAS ... err. it's my name My name is Jude Christoper R. Roxas and JC is my nickname
What do you like most about deviantART?
I really love the community especially the diversity present here. I am such a fan of dA and the thing that i also like here is that, i can really feel that I am home whenever I am here. I can find other art sites over the internet, I can be active there for quite some time, but at the end of the day, realizations will always come into my heart that dA is still my home where i can freely express myself as an artist and as an art appreciator.
And another thing (well i know that you only asked for the best thing but i just can't give you a thing since i have lots of things that make me love dA more! ) is the support of people here. I love when some people take the initiative to support unexposed artists to a wider range of viewers through features and stuffs. I so love that when we connect to each other
and lastly, i met many amazing people here! even those random people who come to your page to say Good morning and Hello, it makes me really happy.
Are there any deviantART features that you have never used?
The adCast. well, i think i want to try it but it's just expensive. and i dont really use deviantART muro even if i want to use it. but sometimes, i just use it for the lulz
How old were you when you first became interested in art?
I believe that i am already interested with arts ever since i was little. I once shared my childhood memories with regards to art here -> Devious Minds Interview
I can still remember my walls in my room before when i was likr 4-5 years old. I have a big wall full of my arts that i usually see in our home. plus, i really like to make cards for my family especially on Valentine's day and Christmas day
Which artists (off and on dA) inspire you?
AHHH! thank you so much for this. Well, i have lots of inspirations that contributed so much with my growth as an artist (but please don't freak out when you can't see your names here. i tell you, i have lots of inspirations that i can't name everyone, considering that i also have a poor memory with names )
to name a few, *ceruleanvii, `trenchmaker , *kinkei, *JinkiMania, *caioscardoso, `kangel and `AquaSixio. and the two Annes, `ginkgografix and ^pica-ae plue Chris, $Ikue also inspired me so much with CSS and designs <3
But the very person that led me to children's illustration and who inspired me sooooooo much is Jonathan, aka ^Thiefoworld. Feefoe is my hero and yeah, i am such his fan!
And ofcourse, i owe so much to *childrensillustrator club for inspiring me BIG TIME!
outside dA,i dont want to forget Raul Guerra who played a very big role with the career path that i chose also, vectips and Abduzeedo are my heroes too!
and my crushes and love <3
What are your pet peeves on dA?
CHAIN LETTERS THAT I CAN SEE ON PLZ ACCOUNTS yes. i don't really like to see such long comments, eating up the wonderful section areas of the wonderful PLZes here
What do you think about Stamps getting DDs?
AHHH> i love stamps and i believe that there's nothing wrong with featuring stamps for DDs.
there are a couple of things that i have in mind now.
1. Stamps are sometimes made to show support, to voice out and to be heard.
2. Stamps also show creativity and hardwork whenever we make stamps.
3. Just like in any other forms of art, we can still express our feelings with stamps!
4. Stamps also remind me about the truth, LOLs and happy memories.
So there's really nothing wrong for me for this matter. I am a stamp lover too! <3
What type of music are you into?
I usually go for Pop, emo-ish songs, instrumentals and religious songs that can help me meditate
I love OWL CITY!, Click five and recently, i became obssesed with the songs of Sam Tsui, ALex Goot, Eric Saade, Future Idiots.
I also love anime songs, KPOP songs and other songs! To name a few, this is my favorite anime song ->[link] and i also love to listen to movie soundtracks
What kind of movies are you into?
friendship. and also, disney movies! and movies that can make me cry all the time (im such a person full of hidden dramas)
I am also a big fan of Studio Ghibli movies like My Neighbor Totoro, Ponyo, Tales from Earthsea, Howl's Moving Castle *insert new fanboy-that-is-louder-than-a-fangirling scream here*, and lots and lots and lots more! plus, POKEMON MOVIES!
i also love sexy comedies
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thank you so much for this wonderful oppOrtunity to speak again
Make 'inspiring others' a daily habit
hugs for everyone!
I'd like to say a huge thanks to ^JCROXAS for taking the time to be interviewed.
