Devious Accents `01

Sat Mar 23, 2013, 4:40 PM
Have you ever wondered what goes on in the artistic endeavors of a Senior? What makes them tick?

"Devious Accents" is a new feature/interview series of Senior Members here on deviantART that aims to surface key features of each Senior and to show them to the community as a whole, brought to you by dAseniors--the official group for Senior Members on deviantART!

Finally, thoughts and sentiments from the Senior-side are revealed to the general community. Let's get started! :la:



Joining us this week will be catluvr2, a former Volunteer with Community Relations, and a very dedicated deviant to his community. Also, he likes cats. :meow:

MiloticScale: Why did you decide to make the leap and become a deviant?


catluvr2: I decided to become a deviant because I saw a link on a website called WinCustomize, and I wanted a place to share my CursorXP themes where they didn't have to be approved just to be in my gallery.

MiloticScale: What are your favorite aspects of the deviantART community?


catluvr2: Well, I stayed on dA because of how friendly everyone was, and to a large extent, that's pretty much stayed the same, although some people have left, others have joined, and some people have stayed the way they were when I first met them.

MiloticScale: When do you find yourself being the most creative?


catluvr2: It really depends on what I want to create. For instance, sometimes I find myself wanting to draw something when everybody else is at lunch, other times I find myself developing a story or characters when I'm walking to work, and still other times I find myself just doing art for the sake of doing art and seeing where my fingers take me.






Pi Day Feature



MiloticScale: Are there any deviants whom you look to for inspiration?


catluvr2: It's kind of hard to narrow them down to just a few, but my early favorite artists are keiross for the Fella Avatar (which I'm using a modified version of for my avatar), dutchie17 (the first emoticon I ever added to my faves), and luigihann for WinAmp skins.

MiloticScale: What contrbutions to the community are you most proud of since receiving Seniority?


catluvr2: Well, I'm proud that I've managed to pull together a devMEET in my area for three years in a row, and I'm also proud that I was a volunteer back in 2010, even though I had to step down for personal reasons. I'm also working on a radio script with some other deviants, but you'll have to wait to see more about that. :shifty:

Really wonderful interview. Love the perspective of how it set together with fitting emotes at the end of each answer.
It was great to read and very interesting. Excellent job both of you :clap:

You're very welcome.

He has amazing art which you've featured.

Well the emotes how i saw them was after a long interview you can feel sleepy.

The Facehoof one I saw as a funny one that symbolized a bit of disbelief/disappointment when friends had left.

The pi feature day one fits where fingers take me because there were a whole lot of numbers under it. and artist always need a lot of time to create awesome pieces like that. and seem the emotes are done digitally.(digitally is the only way I know of to create emotes). You mostly use your fingers whether it is done with a tablet pen or with the track-pad both ways are awesome.

The XD one you can see two ways either funny or sarcastic. I find it more a funny emote.
and the last emote the Purple smile is for relieve.

^---That's why I found them fitting.
That's okay you didn't even notice, it's cool to have done something without realizing you did.
I sometimes have weird ways to relate emotes to fitting questions and answers. :lol:
