How long have you been on DeviantArt? 6 years
What does your username mean? Keks means biscuit in English, and the b... Well, I guess you could translate it with whatever comes to your mind (butter biscuit, banana biscuit,...).
Are you left or right handed? That's easier! Right handed.
What is your favourite type of art to create? Traditional art. Mostly penguins and children's book illustrations, but sometimes I crave for serious paintings/drawings.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Oil painting.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? When I was younger, it was mostly fanart, but now I tend to favourite mostly photography. There are so many amazing photographers here on dA.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I think I wouldn't be the artist I am today without the impact of you guys. In fact, I would have never continued to draw penguins (they started as nothing but a doodle). All the lovely and encouraging comments I received over the years really boosted my self-confidence and made me proud of what I do. Thank you so much!
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Phew, that's basically everywhere! When an idea pops into my mind, I have to make a first draft immediately, otherwise I can't remember later. This sometimes leads to funny situations like that one time I had the idea for my first Easter card in the middle of a mall, so I sat down at one of the benches, took out my sketch book and my pencil case and started scribbling for over half an hour.
Most of my penguins are created either in class or in the university library (if you ever spot a person with a watercolour box between all the law students, that's me! ). I'm not good at drawing on completely white sheets (otherwise the drawings seem not spontaneous but planned.), therefore I feel much more comfortable drawing on work sheets or notes:
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? Again, there are so many it's hard to choose only one of them. I guess I like to think back and tell the story of how once I was asked to draw a penguin for a Canadian university teacher. She wanted a penguin for one of the drones she was building. It was my first comission and I still feel really honoured.
Mother of chubby penguins! What started as a doodle during the loading screen of World of Warcraft has soon become my trademark and favourite thing to draw (especially during boring lectures). As much as I love those silly little penguins, they are not the only thing to draw. My art is as diverse as my personality, so don't be surprised to come across semi-realistic paintings, fanart and other (sometimes even serious) stuff. I'm trying to improve with every piece I make so don't feel afraid to leave a comment and tell me what you liked and what you think could be improved. Thanks!
