1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
This coming November will be my 6th year on DA! Though truth be told I've been lurking around this site years before I even got an account haha
2. What does your username mean?
TacosaurusRex used to be my old AIM instant messenger name back in middle school there's honestly no deeper meaning behind it other than I was like 14 and though tacos and dinosaurs were oh so edgy and cool. I used to draw a taco on the backs of Spinosaurus and that's pretty much it lol
3. Describe yourself in three words.
im bad at counting
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
I've looooonnnggg since removed all the earlier pics I uploaded to this site. There's a lot of dark history that will remain buried forever so I'm not sure exactly what my first deviation was but I think it might have been this pic.
funny enough, this beast went on to be the inspiration for my newest character, Elle D
6. What is your favorite type of art to create?
any and all art I guess? my interests change on a whim so whatever I happen to be into at the time ahah
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
does animation count as another art style?
Honestly I don't really want to master a different person's style. I want to master my own!
8. What was your first favorite?
This piece right here apparently!
9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
all my rad friend's art *double pistols and a wink*
but also lots of mech/robot/sci-fi stuff
10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
without a doubt LeSeanThomas
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I've actually been lucky enough to have already met all my close deviant friends and idols in person (LeSean included)!
is now probably the only one left on my list of "people to fight".
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I've known and met a lot of incredibly awesome people on this site and I will be forever thankful to each and every single one of them. But being real for a second, no one as impacted my life more than inside-under
Zaifon is actually probably one of my oldest friends on this site. We first officially interacted with each other back in aatr2 when we got matched up as opponents, but I was creeping on his art and profile even way before then haha. His round in aatr against me really drove me to try and focus more on improving as an artist. Before, I was just kinda drawing and hoping I would get better along the way, but just seeing Zai work made me realize "ok I need to knuckle down and actually LEARN something" and I will be forever thankful for that~
Mags is another one of my older friends on this site. Met back in TheCityOCT and haven't stopped talking ever since! I have vivid memories of going to her streams and watching her play "Amnesia". She was the first person to ever invite me into a skype call and the first person I ever voice chatted with from the internet. Like Zai though- she too really inspired me to shoot for improvement. She's young but has already worked SO HARD to get to the point she's at today with art! I only hope to master that level of determination some day too.
Calanii, or KAAARENNN CHWANNNN! First internet friend I ever met in person! Introduced through a mutual friend and hit it off ever since~ She's just been an incredible person and friend to me. She has big dreams and doesn't let anyone tell her how to live her life. Her overall attitude about everything really helped me start being a lot more shameless about liking the stuff I liked and owning my passion and what I do!
And last but certainly not least is Inside-under, aka Amber. Im honestly drawing a blank right now on what to even say about her haha. She's my best friend. She's THE best friend I've honestly ever had in my entire life. No amount of type on a screen is going to be able to properly convey how much she has, and still to this day, impacted me as both a friend and an incredible source of inspiration. She's going to go so far some day with her stories and characters. AND YOU SHOULD BE READING HER COMIC BACKLASH IF YOU AREN'T ALREADY
*shameless plug jazz hands*
She's just--- really really REALLY great.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
While I work in both mediums, I definitely prefer digital over traditional.
Tools of Trade include: Wacom Intuos 4 tablet and Adobe Photoshop CC
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Pretty much anywhere tbh. As long as I can get a little natural sunlight and listen to my music, im golden haha
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Too many good ones to choose from! I have very fond memories and moments from all the OCTs I've ever been a part of, as they led me to make so many new friends~
AATR2, TheCityOCT and AATR3 were all great times for me and so that is why I'm very much looking forward to AATR4 muwahah~
