Hello guys! This is my questionnaire for celebrating Deviantart's 15th birthday. Okay, here we goes...
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've browsing Deviantart since early 2008, in that year I started get an interest in art (illustration) and when I googling to search some art tutorials, I found a lot of useful art tutorials here, and I also read in many forum (locally) that told me Deviantart is the largest art platform that you can learn and share arts with people from all the countries in this world, wow I thought it's so amazing!. And beside, in 2008, Facebook, Tumblr, and Instagram are not very popular yet to used as an art platform (not like now). I'm not very confidence back then to put my artwork in online (even in just local website) because I just learn it, and my art is so fckng ugly.
I learned art and learned art, I went to many art workshops, one day courses, met professional illustrator in person, bought art lesson books, AND I got so many art technique tutorials here (and from youtube too). Then, in late 2009, When I thought my art is getting better and I got my very first job as an illustrator, I decided to make Deviantart account (in January 4, 2010).
Back then my account is not this (Detectiveblue), it's a secret, hehehe. I used that account for 2 years and decided to delete it and started a new account (this Detectiveblue account) in January 4 2012. I deleted my 2010 account because I want to change username and I didn't have money to purchase premium (core) membership
. I never told my old watchers that I've move my account, and some of them started to watching me again here, until now I don't know if they're realize it's me or just another new person. I'm not popular in Deviantart, I doubt it if they realize that they watch the same person
So the conclusion is, I've been here for 7 years. What does your username mean?
My nick name started with "D", but I didn't want to use it as my username. Beside, I love to combine another professions name in illustrator profession, so I'm thinking about "Doctor", "Detective", "Dean", "Deserter"... And it turned out I chose "Detective", and added "blue" because I love blue color.
