Interests
...Oh, why the hell not. =P


    1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

            Just over ten years, having first officially joined DA on May 10th, 2005.

    2. What does your username mean?

              
"SlyDante" was a combination of my two favorite video game characters at the time, Sly Cooper & Dante from Devil May Cry. It ended up sticking, much more than my previous attempt at a similar username, "MaximoRez" (yep, reaaallly bet on some long-running game franchises there...).

    3. Describe yourself in three words.

            "Sander Cohen, reincarnated."

    4. Are you left or right handed?

            Right-handed.

    5. What was your first deviation?

             Ace of Spades by SlyDante

            ...It was an icon I created in 2005 for a gaming site that I managed - eVoSTAR - that is now long since dead.

    6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

            Writing, notably. In fact, it was at DeviantART that I started to be productive & write showcases of artwork from around the site that I called "Mini-DDs," which was essentially my first step towards becoming a freelance journalist at Topless Robot, where I now actually have my own gaming column, Robotic Gaming Monthly, whose latest edition just came out last week...oh fine, enough shilling my work. But yes, writing and celebrating the great works of others in the process, that's what I enjoy (I keep meaning to come back to the Mini-DDs, though...).

    7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

            Well, not really a style, but I'd like to master the art of unique character design, namely the bit of transferring my ideas from mind to monitor. I suppose if that meant choosing artists I'd wish to emulate in that area, then VCR-WOLFE & MrGremble are two examples that spring to mind of terrific artists who craft several unique characters.

    8. What was your first favourite?

            You mean the one that kicked off ten-plus years of me faving over 84,000 Deviations? Well, the earliest one I have on record is some Guilty Gear: Isuka fan art...

             Guilty Gear: Faustian Warp by indiochink

            ...Of course, it could be possible has been removed, or the artist behind it might have left their account or something, but that's at least one of the first.

    9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

            Digital art, mainly surreal and cartoonish stuff (preferably some combination of both). In fact, that's why former Cartoons & Comics Volunteer Thiefoworld actually invited me to be one of the "Brave Sidekicks" in the official ComicsAndCartoons group!...In which I am apparently still a Sidekick despite, um, not having actually done anything there in about five years...*tugs on shirt collar*

    10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

            Bisparulz, mainly because he specializes in the type cartoonish, surreal artwork I just mentioned. VivzMind is a close second, though, though to her vibrant energy & creativity...in fact, I think she's probably gained enough ground for me to call it a tie between the two.

    11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

            Probably someone who seems to generally share similar interests such as myself, and/or would be interesting to hold a conversation with. Off the top of my head, it would probably be AndrewDickman or jollyjack, if only because I could probably discuss video games and various forms of pop culture for quite a while...I mean, those discussion might arguably end with us beating each other to a pulp, but it will have been fun up until that point. Not to mention CITRUSKING46, whom I regularly hang out with along with several other Topless Robot regulars and is a legitimately awesome guy. Plus he also designed my current Robotic Gaming Monthly headers, so gotta plug him there as well.

    12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

            ZombiDJ, largely for helping to design my SlyDante avatar/online persona, along with Fefcaine, his robot sidekick. I feel like they've helped given me a sort of personality to work with online, and so I am forever in debt to her for that. Also, there was that Summer where...eh...nah, I probably shouldn't mention that. Yet.

    13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

            A keyboard and Notepad &/or Microsoft Word. Although on the occasions where I find myself working with graphic design, Photoshop or Pixlr.

    14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

            Well, since my art revolves around the stuff I find on DeviantART or video games that I play or read about online, I would have to say the most inspirational place for me is at home. Or even anywhere, really. Browsing the internet is where I find the most unique voices that inspire me.

    15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

            Oh, geez...I guess I would say the Mini-DDs Best of 2010 Extravaganza that I linked to earlier...that was the biggest thing I had ever created on DA, showcasing over 200 Deviations AND giving away three then-brand-new copies of Portal 2 (back when I could actually afford to do something like that). That really does feel like my proudest moment here, and I always feel ashamed of not having returned to my Mini-DDs to do something as grandiose...but someday I will, dammit...


Well, happy 15th birthday, DeviantArt! You may be going through some tough times (seriously, you couldn't even give us a slight heads-up about Core?), but I still loves ya! Enjoy your cake! ^_^

Here's a petition about the replacement of the Sonic comics to IDW, after they ended with
the Archie Comics series, and sally acorn and the freedom fighters were stay tuned by ShanahaT, and you know I'm very autistic.
