How long have you been on DeviantArt? I think since freshmen year of high school, September (something) 2007? (I think??)
What does your username mean? Well little story behind it. I always loved aliens and when I was really little I came up with an alien name to trick my brother and sister into thinking I was one. it started out as just "dymidy" then, evolved into just Dymin over the years. The "Jay" of the name came from my real name being Diamond J****** and because for the longest there were other girls named Diamond around me, they used the first letter of our last names to call us out. However, because I was so shy and blended into the background very often, people would just call the other girls by Diamond and I was always called "Diamond J." So the name has a bit of meaning to it, and I use it to this very day.
Describe yourself in three words. shy, hyperactive, loud
Are you left or right handed? When drawing, writing, or eating, I am right handed, however, when it comes to everything else, I am ambidextrous. however, I will use my left hand for almost anything.
What was your first deviation? ugh, it was horrible, but I loved it when I drew it so can't be mad. It was a picture of my character Kyle I believe. It's still up to this day to look at.
What is your favourite type of art to create? Digital when I can! traditional cuz I can do it anywhere
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Glen Keane's style with the quickness!!!!!! O-O
What was your first favourite? Masashi Kishimoto's for Naruto. My first fanart was Neji Hyuga
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? to be honest... Brightly colored neon aliens.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHIN'!! He's an awesome dude who like not only faves almost everything I post but his work is vibrantly colorful, and when I was down, he dropped a message to me, which always brings me up. She's my all time fave dA artist, I think probably one of the only dA artists that I've ever drawn fanart for and the only one where have their work as my phone, ipod, and computer desktop wallpaper. She's a really cool deviant to talk to and if we ever met in real life I'm sure we'd be friends!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I would love to one day just hang with her, that would be boss. I love her comics, and she just seems so chill. I would like to get to know her in person. and his work is awesome, and I wouldn't mind hanging with him to talk about cartoons. That would be great to actually meeting him face to face.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? hmmmm, well when it goes as afar as impacting my life, :iconrosettacharmer14: she was the reason I'm even on deviantART and if she didn't introduce me to this site, I probably would have found my way on it several years later, but my work would not have been as preserved as it is today, and my skill would not be as good either, thanks to the community that exists here then and today. You guys rock!
What are your preferred tools to create art? definitely bamboo tablet and adobe photoshop. Less things to crap out on you. TT-TT
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? In my bed in the middle of the night, that's where I make my more meaningful pieces. my more funny pieces, it varies. I wander a bit
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Well, perhaps when I got the gift of a month of Premium Membership from for my birthday, when it was just about to run out. Money was seriously tight for me at the time, but when that happened I almost cried (there were tears I'm trying to look tough) when I got that, made my whole day!
