How long have you been on DeviantArt? Seems like forever, but 6 years if you count lineally.
What does your username mean? Leighta is my name in Tolkien's elvish. I picked it up about 13 years ago.
Describe yourself in three words. Observant. Dreamer. Sesquipedalian.
Are you left or right handed? LEFTIE PRIDE!
What was your first deviation? This thingy here.
What is your favourite type of art to create? I like doodling with markers, crayons, pencil, pen, whatever. I also love the complexity of photography. I can get really wrapped up in framing a shot or trying to get the best angle.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? I wish I could animate. Cartoons or claymation, probably.
What was your first favourite? Most likely something having to do with Supernatural or angels.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Photography or pencil drawings.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? That's tough... girl-on-the-moon or alicexz are two of my faves, but I love a lot of different artists. It amazes what some people can do, starting with an idea and turning it into something magnificent.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? Pretty much anyone I follow.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? A while ago, out of the blue, someone told me I was beautiful. It completely floored me; this may not have been the first time someone said that to me, but it was the first time I believed they were being truthful. They didn't just say 'you have nice eyes' or 'I like your hair,' they actually said that me as a whole was beautiful. I tried to demure, but they said as a tattoo artist they see and meet thousands of people and I stand out. I'm so grateful to them.
What are your preferred tools to create art? Anything I can find: camera, sharpies, colored pencils, pens, etc.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Wherever I feel at peace, it changes. Sometimes that's my room or backyard, sometimes it's a bench on campus. I get a good feeling and things just flow.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? See #12. A few months ago I was blessed by a stranger with a 3-month premium membership. They said they did it to encourage me to keep creating, keep sharing. That was a wonderful and pleasant surprise.
