Sooo I got tagged by :icondreamsverse: with a few questions; Though I will flat out say that I'm too lazy to tag peeps with more questions. :iconming-hideplz:

----

♥ 1.) Who's your biggest idol/inspiration for your art/writing/music/etc.?
I don't really have an idol within the art industry, I usually get inspired by random works by people I either don't know or consider more acquaintances than idols.

♥ 2.) Do you watch any art channels on youtube or something?  If so, which ones do you like the most and why?  If not, are you going to at some point?
The only art channels I watch are music channels, though if I were to say which is my fav, I would say GlitchXCity. Mostly because they make like... very nice Pokemon remixes.

♥ 3.) What got you to draw?  (And yes, everyone has doodled when they were little, but what got you to really start drawing as a true hobby/profession?)
Ehhhh, when I came to dA I was kind of inspired to draw a little bit by all the art floating around, but I'd say the biggest reason as to why I started drawing again was seeing some groups and people interacting. I started drawing because I wanted to make a character that would become 'popular' but I found out soon enough that's a bad reason to draw, so now I just draw as a hobby... and sparingly. :'D

♥ 4.)  Are you happy with where your skills are now? Why/Why not?
Not at all. :'D I used to draw better a couple of months ago and I'm rusty in general... though I'm mostly fine with how most of my artwork turned out, even if it's not as decent as I want it to be.

♥ 5.)  What's one character you'd want to revise that you have (and why)?  If you don't have any characters, why don't you have any?  If you don't have any characters you want to revise, then... uh... doodle your favorite character on a unicorn.  I dunno, man.
Oh man, I revise characters on a regular basis, usually for the sheer reason of not touching them for a few years; though the character I want to revise most right now is Eizy; since I basically made her into a generic, albeit super friendly, knight person and I want her to be more than a basic stereotype. 

♥ 6.)  Do you have a character, story, world, etc. in mind you would like to work on?  Well, here's your time!  Mind sharing a little bit about it/them?  If not, then what's one of your favorite characters, stories, worlds, etc. of yours and why?
I actually have an unnamed world that I worked on for a game I wanted to make that I would love to get around to finishing someday; it basically had humans, elves and mixed beast races (think like gijinkae of either Humans or Elves and an animal) living in harmony, but with the racism that comes with differing races; I had a plot kinda worked out, but it'd be too rambly if I were to try and explain it now in my opinion.
Also Ashetore's/Vesarus' story arc in Rise-of-Renova is something I'm really dying to work on, though my current state of mind is kinda keeping that on the down low.

♥ 7.) Let's finally do an easy question.  I feel like I've been bombarding you with deep intense questions or something, ha.  Can you draw a perfect circle without using any precise tools (shape tools, protractor, etc.)
Nope; I can get kinda close sometimes tho.

♥ 8.)  What inspires you to finish a idea/picture/story/etc?
Usually seeing another finished work from either myself or someone else (yes looking back at my own artwork helps sometimes); either that or watching art livestreams generally help me get back into gear; tho I don't watch them often.

♥ 9.)  Who do you feel supports you the most?  Family, friends, watchers, patreon peeps?  Let's do a nice shout out to these people!
Mostly my mother really :'D She's one of the few people in the direct vicinity who I'd dare bother with my 'artwork'. And of course the few people that favorite/comment on my work here, but that's kind of a given.

♥ 10.)  Finally, what's you favorite thing to draw or what's your favorite step of your art/writing/etc system to do?
Favorite thing to draw is faces... even if I still draw very simplistic expressions and whatnot, it should be clear that my faces are usually more detailed than most other facets of my characters; Oh and also clothes, with a similar reasoning.
My favorite step is actually coloring (not shading mind you); trying to find the right colors and trying to make good use of what are generally considered 'ugly' colors (or color combinations) fascinates me.

GrazArts's Profile Picture

Yo, I'm GrazArts, though I prefer to be named Grazhar or Graz; as the image above should give away, I'm a guy; I'm 24 years old and I hail from the Netherlands... I came to deviantArt solely to favourite a 'commission' I requested back in the day from an artist here, but after some time I slowly started picking up drawing as a hobby again after many many years of not drawing (we're talking like 9 years here... and the best I ever made as a young'un was some tree).

Over the now years I've been on this site I found interest in some Pokemon-related role-playing groups, as well as a Zelda group, which, despite my horrible artwork, ended up accepting me among their members... That's basically the story of this gallery as most (but not all) deviations are related to those groups that I joined over time... my art grew as part of those groups and I'm very thankful for the time I was allowed to spend with them.

Regardless, it should be obvious that my art is heavily influenced by the generic anime-drawing books, as well as some artists that reside on this site among others... I generally only draw humanoid characters in either the fantasy or pokemon (which is essentially fantasy too but whatevs.) universe... I have dipped into anthropomorphic characters and I might try it again someday, but I'm not actively out to pick it up again. This also goes for my 'strife', or more accurately put, my lack of that to improve. I draw what I want to draw, and generally only if I feel good enough to do so, improvement is bound to occur, but I keep it as a hobby, I am by no means gonna focus on it.

Have a nice day~

Mixed Feelings WIP
Just a WIP, I still need to do some more lines, but I wanted to drop this here until lord knows when I finish it.
It's supposed to become Vessie and his lil' family revisiting his old (partly destroyed, which is something I still need to line) Alchemy store for nooo reason whatsoever He's totally not gonna try and live back in Ormona again. Also inconspicuous Quia is inconspicuous.

Y'il, but a little bit better. (and shaded)
That one lady I drew a while ago, but like... better showcasing her clothes and stuff.
The ghostly effects are now replaced with decent-ish shading.

Frillish is Nintendo/GameFreak's
I lay claim to Y'il tho.

Y'il
Random concept for a character I had a while back... still not feeling much like drawing, but she's one of the few things I got around to working on. It's not that great but it's something.
She's a Frillish Gijinka I may decide to use at some point.
Also IDK why I added that little head shot, seeing as it adds literally nothing.
