Well, I've been tagged on this a few times and my previous journal entry here is over a year old, so I might as well. :)

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    Over ten years, and it will be eleven in October.

  2. What does your username mean?
    It's my name.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Paleoartist; eventual scientist.

  4. Are you left or right handed?

  5. What was your first deviation?
    Squirrel by EWilloughby
    This piece of Redwall fanart. In fact, the Redwall fandom was my introduction to DeviantArt: I had been a member of The Long Patrol forums, doing sketches for people of their Redwall-inspired characters, and was told that I MUST register an account at DA and share my art with the world. I wonder if I still have any watchers from those Redwall days?

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    If "type" means subject matter, then it's accurate feathered dinosaur paleoart. If "type" means medium, then see question #13.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Oil or oil pastels in the manner of Douglas Henderson. 

  8. What was your first favourite?
    Bambiraptor feinbergorum by kyoht
    This Bambiraptor by Heather "Kyoht" Luterman, who was one of my favorite paleoartists back in the day and was one of my first exposures to accurate dromaeosaur art.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Accurate paleoart of mostly feathered dinosaurs, and some bird art and bird photography.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    Probably :iconjconway:, :icondustdevil: and :icondinomaniac:, though DA is no longer the best place to follow their work.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    I've met a number in person already, so it's hard to say. Maybe :iconkeesey:, :iconscotthartman: or :iconorange-eyed-serpent:.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    Well, the most obvious answer is :iconagahnim:, whom I met through this site (sort of) almost 10 years ago. He has had a greater cumulative impact on my life in these past 10 years than probably any other person I've known in that time, online or off.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    I bounce between digital art (CS4 with a Wacom tablet) and gouache/watercolor traditional pieces. Preference at any given time depends on client's preference, suitability of the composition to the medium, and specific level of rage I'm currently feeling towards Photoshop.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    I don't think location has affected level of inspiration to a significant extent.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    Meeting Jon or being contacted for publication in a book for the first time, which was the biggest single thing that made me reconsider a career as an illustrator. There is much I dislike about this silly website, but damn if it hasn't been kind of ridiculously integral to most of the things I've found valuable over the years.

Im fairly new to the site, and a member of the deinonychosaur art group. I've created a stop motion velociraptor puppet for the gallery, what do think go him?
EWilloughby Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2015  Professional General Artist
Hi Hublerdon, we do not usually accept mass submissions of the same piece of artwork. I'd recommend that you choose one photograph of the model that you think best demonstrates the form and anatomy, and submit that. 
HUBLERDON Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Which one would you prefer?
EWilloughby Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2015  Professional General Artist
Up to you.

Hey...I was just wondering about these images on this has your old Balaur as a dromaeosaur and your Acheroraptor portrait. Was wondering if you'd allowed them to use the images or if they were just taken. I didn't see any credit given to you...
EWilloughby Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2015  Professional General Artist
Nope, don't see any credit either. But both images are under a Creative Commons license, so it's probably not worth the trouble of doing anything about it. Thanks for letting me know, though.
