Deviantart Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 10:06 PM

How long have you been on DeviantArt

8 years! 8 long years. 

What does your username mean?

I like griffins. Like a lot. And I was born in 1988. So I'm half griffin half dragon really. 

Describe yourself in three words.
Charming, genius, neurotic

Are you left or right handed?
Left. Southpaws4lyfe

What was your first deviation?
Oooh, can I still find it? Let me check...Oh god, it's hideous.
Say it loud by thegriffin88
I don't know what I used but it wasn't MSPaint. And yet, look at those lines. So awful, so pixel.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Comics! Comics comics comics that's me! I love comics, it's a great way to tell a story! 

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'd want to be a painter. Either in oil or acrylic, but a real traditional painter. Or get something digital to look painterly.

What was your first favourite?
Let's see if it's still around...
Somewhere in Heaven... by shinga
Yup! This was the year Steve Irwin died. He was one of my childhood heroes growing up. He taught me that alligators and snakes shouldn't be feared, because they're actually really cool and a big part of the environment.

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Fantasy. I love fantasy art. Or, if you're asking about medium, digital. It's just too convenient.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Ooohhh...that's a toughy....I'd have to say
:iconaltalamatox: She has so many cool characters and is a great artist in general. He's one of my heroes. Then again, :iconnebezial: is also a huge icon for me because of his stunning, absolutely unsurpassed comic work. 

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
:iconnebezial: because I'd want him to sign my Ravine stuff.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
:iconrenagaderexrider: is the one I talk to the most through comments. It's more the community that I like. I get to see great art by great people and learn from that. 

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wacom Intuos 3 tablet and Photoshop.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Here, in the cyberspace. I'm almost a blood relative of this computer I spend so much time on it. 

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
That one April fools where everyone's icon was a Mudkip. Drew a comic for it even because I am comics:

I'm a cartoonist with a thing for griffins. My main comic is Semi-Charmed and I'm also writing a fantasy series called The House of Claw. When I'm not drawing, I'm either playing video games or poking people with sticks.


So I'm looking for someone who is either familiar with the software FaceRig or is willing to learn (you can buy it on Steam) to make me a custom avatar of myself, the little icon next to my name up there. 

So, yeah, reply to me here with some of your choice work and a price range as well as the best way to contact you. 
This is a short story about caring and friendship and brita filters and dildos. What the fuck is this piece even becoming?
SC- Yellow Hawk Down by thegriffin88
SC- Yellow Hawk Down
And the bird is finally down! Now let's find out what was up with him. 
Finnan, who had been up late reading, turned to see his friend and captain standing in the doorway, a pained look on his face.
“Atticus?” he questioned.
The drakken was about to reply when his stomach gave a low, angry growl. He winced and placed a hand on his abdomen. Finnan grimaced and nodded, beckoning him in and helping him to get seated in a chair.
“Cramps?” he asked as he turned to his cabinets of herbs.
“Had a bit of an ache a while ago, now it feels like something’s got its claws hooked in me.” Atticus grumbled, attempting to massage the sore area.
“You’re stressed.” Finnan said as he began grinding herbs in a mortar. “And you don’t eat regularly.”
“’s not my fault I haven’t been able to stomach the mere smell of food these past weeks.” Atticus huffed.
“And now that you’ve finally felt up to eating you gorge yourself. You can’t do that after fasting.”
Atticus grunted and settled back in his chair as Finnan went to go fetch some hot water. When he came back in, Atticus wrinkled his nose and hissed.
“Ach, what is that?! It smells horrible.” he complained, recoiling from the mug.
“Tea, for your stomach.” Finnan said, pressing the mixture closer.
Atticus gave a soft growl and curled his lip slightly before finally accepting the beverage.
“Have you thought of scrying Catherine?” Finnan asked, he knew that just hearing her voice calmed Atticus.
Atticus stopped making faces at the tea long enough to answer.
“No. It would just worry her. I don’t even know what time it is in Lashtia.”
TFK: Atticus doesn't react all that well to stress
Just old stuff I'm digging out of my Documents folder. A bit of what it says on the tin, Atticus is the kind of person to try and solve all the world's problems in one go, which is an impossible and exhausting task.
