Newest Deviations

Photography and vector art are my passions, so that's the kind of stuff you'll see here, although in my free time I enjoy stamp-making. :D

Random Favourites

I fav very rarely and carefully, so what is here is top-quality work relevant to my interests.


Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
I am a vector artist with a passion for photography. I love anime and video games, if you want to talk about anything don't be shy!

Personal Quote: I'm too busy living to have a life.
So I know it's been quite a while since my last journal, because I'm never sure what I should share, and then time keeps marching on without an update. I figured this questionnaire might be at least a good change in my journal status :P

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Wow, six years. Been a member since high school, when all my friends were active too :P

2. What does your username mean?
Well, obviously I like the color emerald and otters, but it was actually meant to match my brother's name too. He also has a name that has the format The-Color-Animal as his username, and I wanted to be like my big brother.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Tired, busy, content

4. Are you left or right handed?
Right handed, my left is a lazy thing that doesn't do nearly enough

5. What was your first deviation?
This baby: My Dream by The-Emerald-Otter

6. What is your favorite type of art to create?
My vector art. It's always so clean, instead of the rough sketches they start as.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Painting of any kind. No matter how I try, physical or digital, mine always looks awkward.

8. What was your first favorite?
This fantastic piece:  Joker... by nami64

9. What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
Fanart. I try to make sure I favorite at least one piece for every anime, manga, or tv show I watch, to help me remember them all :P

10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
I have several that I've admired, in their different formats. Cataclysm-X is my favorite traditional artist, JohnSu has hilarious, lovely digital art, and woxys has been my favorite wildlife photographer since I found her :D

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I'm not sure. While there are lots of people I enjoy watching, the people I know best are the ones that I already knew and got me to join DeviantArt in the first place.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Every person that's commented something positive about my work, it helps encourage me to keep showing new things. Even when my social anxiety keeps me from responding to peopleSweating a little... 

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Expression3 and a mouse. Seriously, if anyone wants to work with a vector-based program, I haven't found one better than Expression3. Unfortunately, it was bought out over 5 years ago and is no longer made, I don't even remember where my brother found it. If you enjoy my work and want to try the program for yourself, shoot me a note and I'll see if I can figure out how to get it to you, because it is the best around.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
There isn't really a physical place that's particularly inspirational. I get inspired by new stories, fun characters, and exciting concepts.

15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
When the Eeveelution parade stamp that I made for fun started becoming so popular. I hadn't had the success on DeviantArt that my brother had, so I was kind of disheartened for a while. Seeing how many people loved one little thing I did really helped perk me up, and even if my other art won't get as popular, I love knowing I've put smiles on a lot of people's faces :D (Big Grin) 

Hope that let you guys learn a bit more about me. Until next time~
