I have OCs based on all of these, nagas in particular make up a good amount of them very much thanks to my special interest in snakes.
11 and 20 for music asks
11) what's a really popular song that you hate?
Baby shark. Fucking Baby shark. I work childcare do you have any idea how much that song is drilled into my frontal lobe??? The mere mention of it has me wanting a lobotomy. My feelings are visceral about this one.
20) how did you find out most of your music taste? did someone introduce you to it? did you rely on youtube's recommendation system? were you introduced to it as a kid by your family?
A mix of all 3. I used to watch a lot of AMVs on youtube and I'd latch onto a song in one and look it up. then listen to the rest. A lot of the stuff I tended towards related back to the stuff I'd hear my parents listening to though. Dad listens to a lot of death metal and mum would usually have MCR playing.
1, 4, 12, & 14 for the music asks!
1) favorite band?
I flit a lot between different bands if I'm honest. The two bands I seem to go back to the most though are My Chemical Romance and Three Days Grace.
4) you know how sometimes you'll stumble upon a song and really like it but not any of the other songs by that artist? which song is like that for you?
Oh no! by Marina and the Diamonds. There's maybe or two other songs of there's that I like on and off but this is the only one that's consistent.
12) what's a really obscure song that you love?
Gonna delve into video game music for this one and say this remix by NoteBlock on youtube of Mr L's theme from Super Paper Mario. I adore this game and this is a really cool take on the theme for my favourite boss.
14) what song is the best for driving down a deserted highway at 3 am while mysterious things stare at you from the trees?
I've got 2 picks for this one. Moon Trance by Lindsey Stirling. I'm a sucker for her music and this manages to be really high energy and still slow down for that eerie feeling at points. Will make you feel like the hero of the story triumphing over the creatures of the night. Second pick is Painted Smile by Madame Macabre The lyrics for this one very much say "I am a serial killer and I'm going to come for you" in a very gleeful tone. Perfect for driving at 3am clearly.
Artist asks; 13, 14, 15 :)
13) What music do you listen to while drawing?
My playlists are such a mess of completely random stuff. Lately during my streams I've been listening to the soundtracks for Portal 2 and Undertale but honestly I pick what to listen to based on what I'm drawing. Sometimes I won't even use a specific playlist I'll just queue up a bunch of stuff and go back to add more as I go. My main playlist has everything from Steven Universe songs to Video game fansongs (Natewantstobattle, Harry101UK, JTMusic, etc) to My chemical Romance and Green Day to Voltaire. I'll listen to pretty much anything.
14) What's your favorite thing to draw?
I have the most fun drawing expressions I think. I love really pushing the emotive limits of a character, making them emote with their whole body. A lot of my characters are autistic and I'll draw them flapping or stimming in some other way. I think the act of drawing those things in and of itself might be a stim for me.
15) What's your least favorite thing to draw?
There's nothing I genuinely dislike drawing, but if I had to pick something I like the least, it's hands. I don't think that's all that surprising though. It can be frustrating to get to look natural so it's my leastfavourite part of the process and it I think I can avoid it I probably will, but I kind of want to push myself to draw them more because getting them right can end up being really satisfying.
5, 9, 10, & 16 for the artist ask!
5) What's your favorite part of drawing? (Lineart, coloring, etc...)
It really depends on how I'm feeling and on the piece. I love the sketching process though. Usually I'll fill up a page iterating on a concept or idea. So if something has caught my attention or I''ve though of something that's what I'll enjoy most. Occassionally though I'm just looking for something to keep my hands busy and in that case it's gotta be colouring. It's very chill, especially with markers. I can just kind of zone out and listen to music.
9) What is the best aspect of your art style?
The hair. No matter how I think a particular drawing is coming out I'm always happy with the hair.
10) How did you develop your art style?
Mostly iteration. Little by little my style has evolved. Usually there's something specific I want to draw, a pose, a creature, an outfit etc, that I haven't gotten figured out yet. So I'll google that thing and pull up images. Sometimes just photos other times I'll use tutorials. Mark Crilley (youtube here) was a huge influence on me while starting out.
16) What do you draw when you're feeling sad/anxious?
I don't actually draw much when I'm feeling sad or anxious, I can't get myself through a drawing without wanting to scrap it. When I do though it's usually pen doodles. Mostly little low detail thumbnail doodles of little scenes.
for the song ask meme: Battleborn by The Killers
"Up against the wall There's something dying on the street When they knock you down You're gonna get back on your feet (No you can't stop now)"
This is definitely not something I'd have found on my own, but I really like it!
Freya by Brothers of Metal for the song thing!
"With her band of sisters she will conquer all All her enemies will fall Within the darkness, comfort find When in sorrow your heart bound In her tears of red gold"
You've made a new fan of Brothers of Metal with this one.
