How long have you been on DeviantArt?
A hair over 10 years.
What does your username mean?
I had a thing for the windmill music the first time I played Ocarina of Time. The Song of Storms is still my messaging ringtone. I have absolutely no idea where the 214 comes from.
Describe yourself in three words.
Too many interests.
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
Unfortunately, it's a bit of a bitter memory for me. It was a set of sprites of my friend Blu and her OCs. I deleted the original deviation when we had a falling out, and rather than repost it later on, I edited the sprites in with another OC of hers.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Oracle style maps. I enjoy doing characters, but I get more satisfaction out of the maps.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I would love to be able to draw.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Video game art. Lots of Zelda.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I don't know about all-time, and I'm not sure I can narrow it to just one. At the moment, I really like Linkerbell, Raichiyo33, hybridmink, and KR0NPR1NZ.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Hmm. I dunno, so I'll just say that Linkerbell seems fun.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
My watchers and the people who have commented and faved have given me a lot of motivation to keep pushing forward with my art.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
MS Paint. Lately, I've also really been liking my new Logitech M570 trackball.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My bedroom. It's a space that I've very definitely made my own. My two monitor setup is super helpful with my spriting, I've got several video game posters on my green walls, and off to the side, I have my TV and my huge shelf of consoles (all six Nintendo consoles, a Genesis, and a 360).
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I guess I'd have to say when I noticed that had surpassed 10,000 views and 100 favorites. Totally blew my mind.
So now that that's over, status update. I sort of held myself up on Zora's Domain because I decided to play though Ocarina of Time yet again, now that it's on Wii U. Now I've got a family situation going on that's eating up my time, but I'm hoping to get back to work on it soon. I'm past my biggest roadblock, so it should be much easier to get going again.
