I've seen this pop up around and wondered where it was coming from, then actually read the topic about it :P So here we go!

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Going by my first account (whoops, seems I've had... four? XD) since March 6, 2003. So 12 years.

2. What does your username mean?
Nightshade, just swapped around. Because deadly nightshade, plants and poison :D

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Inspired, random, morbid.

4. Are you left or right handed?
Right, I wish I could use both, siiigh.

5. What was your first deviation?
No idea as I deleted my deviations on that account. The first on this one would be my hand portraits back when I was thinking of using this as more of a photography account...

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Sketches! Easy, quick, little to no fuss or stress involved <3

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Super realism so I could use that knowledge to better improve my current style.

8. What was your first favourite?

Looks like it was this: Not Even the Rain by joulee but may have also been something else as a lot that I may have had faved were deleted.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
These days backgrounds, tutorials and things that I think I can learn from looking at more.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
... you know it's difficult to pin down one because I like different aspects of the styles a variety of different artists use.
Nebezial has a really nice style, anatomy, colouring.
Darchala has such clean, crisp colouring and gorgeously intricate designs.
Lilithblack does lovely comic page layouts and expressions.
Algy also has some wonderful colouring, both traditional and digital.
Etc etc. I really don't have one favourite as I pick and choose individual bits of an artists style that I like most.

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Magp1e and JC-Blade!  Imagine all the awkward silences!

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Sending my inspiration and ideas soaring to new heights and giving me someone to drown in textwalls <3

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Computer, because I can resize and undo and move and delete things easily :P Currently Clip Studio Paint. There is something relaxing about randomly scribbling in ballpoint pen or pencil though.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My room. Lair of many art supplies that go unused.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
It's a site. My memories are of sitting and clicking on things. Occasionally also typing things.

Togruta Attempt #4 by ShadesofNight
Togruta Attempt #4
Getting there! Expanding upon some of the poison frog designs a little, the montral and lekku designs I just made up. Also going with a montral shape I'd done in some sketches that I liked.

Togruta Attempt #3 by ShadesofNight
Togruta Attempt #3
Still inspired by poison frog colours and patterns, trying different ones here. I was going to try a different colour on the head... (so he looked less like christmas) but accidentally didn't save the layered image *head desk*. Also trying even more swept back montrals here.

Togruta Attempt #2 by ShadesofNight
Togruta Attempt #2
The Togruta have arrived! Unfortunately, the males use the Clone Wars as canon and so have really short stumpy lekku. And huge foreheads. Sigh. Not in any hurry to create one in-game now.

But I won't let that daunt me! The quest to get my Togruta's design right continues!

This time I decided to use poison frogs as inspiration. They have such stunning colours and neat patterns. Tried sweeping his ontrals back a bit too. The result: that pattern on his head reminds me of pajama pants...

Onyx the Butler by ShadesofNight
Onyx the Butler
Sometimes when I make multiple MCs in a setting I like to have them co-existing at the same time. This is the case with my Seven Kingdoms: The Princess Problem (7kpp) characters. However, this means they can't all share poor Jasper (or they'd tear him into quarters).

So, behold! This is Yarrow's butler during her stay at the island. His name is Onyx (because I liked the idea of naming him after a stone too). As you'd expect he's just as professional and able to do his job as Jasper is... almost. Onyx is the tiniest bit easier to fluster or throw off track.

What, me? Pffft. How about I show you a forum instead.

Sisters of Steel
For those of you familiar with the old Petals and Thorns boards they've now closed. Because there were a few of us still interested in hanging around I created a free new board called Sisters of Steel. The concept is the same: A nice small board geared more towards female gamers. If you were a member of PnT or you just think you might be interested anyone is welcome to join us (both genders)
