What is your least favorite aspect of making art/writing?
RE-ANSWERING THIS (I didn't read 'least' in there, haha :'D)
I love my sketches, but when I ink, all my anatomy and details mistakes just glare at me as if saying "you're half-assing this, you have no patience", "your hand steadyness sucks" and "you're bad at this, you should quit, you'll never be good enough".
That and trying to to draw an scene I have way too clear in my head... I never manage to get it quite right and it's frustrating (even more when it's a commission I've been painted a very specifi image of in tby the client X_x;) . My brain-to-page printer mechanism sucks :'D
What is your least favorite aspect of making art/writing?
SKETCHING AND COLORING!! >w<
Picturing the scene I want to draw in my head and trying to put it on the page(screen), and looking at it later and thing "wow, this actually looks good! :'D "
And when other people see my art and it makes them... feel things. Smile, go "aww", think "oh, this is pretty!" and inspire them to draw their own things, or maybe just save them to their personal folder of pretty art (or reblog on tumblr)... it makes me extremely happy ;_; To be able to make other people feel what I feel towards other people's arts is just amazing.
Name your three biggest weaknesses!
Besides my mental illnesses (Anxiety and Cyclothymia, yay!) , I am a horribly unpunctual individual, I have a terrible time self-managing my time and being on top of my schedule, and my physical condition regarding physical activity is pretty sad x'D
What is your favorite drink?
Non-alcoholic: Chai Latte <3
Alcoholic: Cola de Mono!! >w<
Who do you like best RN: your Mom or Dad?
Mom! Only because I grew up with her and talk to her often vs Dad I talk to once a year on the phone and only knew he was my dad at 14, haha ^^; (I still like him, though!)
What was the last gift you gave someone?
A handmade alfajor I made with bf and friends! :D
Gave one to one of my neighbour friends that came today and gave two to another that came last night ^^
Do you ever dream of winning a lottery? What would you do with your millions?
I'd buy an apartment or a house, a nice car, I'd pay off my mom's debts and get us both on a cruise to the Mediterranean, buy some crap, fund some games, travel with my bf and my gf a lot <3
Would you say your parents are overprotective?
I'd say my late granny the overprotective one rather than my mom, growing up.
My mom has a more hands-off approach, sprinkled with a healthy (NOT) dose of "Doom shall be upon you if you do/fail at this, so be sure you don't do/fail at this."
She strongly believes in scaring people into doing the right thing/doing things right 9_9;
As soon as I started college she decided I was adult enough to do things by myself and mocked e for being scared of taking a cab, while the previous years it was all dangerous and scary. So... meh.
Do you judge people quickly?
I try my hardest not to and try to correct such behaviour when I spot it, since I'm aware it's not a good thing >>;
Burgers with pickles or onions or both?
I hated pickles as a kid and refused to eat anything with them (I was a really picky eater, now I'm just moderately picky :'D )... until I re-tried the in Dallas a couple years ago and loved them, haha
Does your name have a meaning? What is it?
If it's about my actual name... Beatriz (my 2nd name and the one I actually use daily) means 'brings joy' and in other languages also means 'she who brings others happiness'.
I try to live up to that :)
My first name is María, which nobody knows for certain what it means originally, though probably "beloved" or "love", if you consider the Egyptian origin.
As for my screen-name, Deji comes from Dejiko (As in DiGi Charat's Dejiko) which, afaik, comes from "dejitaru" (Digital) and "ko" (child), hence "digital child".
The "Nyucu" part of my nickname is a random made up word xD
Did you ever fall asleep in school?
Not that I remember.
In college, I slept on the commute or got home and napped a lot x'D
How would you describe falling in love at the wrong time?
Heartache, sadness and a lot of "why is this happening to me ;_;" and "what if..."s. All of this mixed with an unhealthy mixture of joy and guilt.
Where is the one place in the world you wish you could revisit?
Scotland! <3 <3
(and Canada because girlfriend, ofc)
Ever thought about making something other drawing?
I wanted to be a programmer for a while. I still enjoy coding some things now and then ^^ (as long as its not tedious coding like putting expressions on Visual Novels forever, hahaha :'D )
Sometimes I wish I could study to be a veterinarian as well :)
I have a lot of interest, I just never pursue any of them ):
Real tattoo or henna tattoo?
I have neither, but if I did, I'd get a real one!
I've actually been meaning to get one for over a decade >>; but it's veeeeery low on my list of priorities on my list of "things I care about spending money on" ^^;
Do you prefer art with sharp angles or rounded shapes? :D
I like smooth, armonious, organiz curves on everything <3
Have you ever considered doing a game such as Huniepop, where it's not strictly a VN, or have you already done such a thing that I'm not aware of?
It seems that every VN dev got this question, haha xD
I've made art for VNs that have some gameplay, like Summer/Winter in Fairbrook.
Personally, I'd love to work on an RPG/VN hybrid in the future, but as far as making a game centered around a specific kind of gameplay and building the VN elements around it... I'm not sure I could come up with something fun or interesting myself, at least ^^;
What's the last thing you bought and love?
The dress and shoes I bought last weekend to go to a friends' wedding!!
I rarely buy clothes or shoes for myself (I already have more than enough), and they were so pretty and made me feel pretty >v<
If you had to change your first name, what name would you choose?
I like my first+second nam together, but I don't like my first name alone :') If I had to change it, I'd hyphenate both or get rid of the first :') (I usually get called by my 2nd anyway!)
If you could restore one broken relationship, which would it be?
I usually drift away from people (I'm awful at keeping in touch), but there is one person I get pissed off when I see their name, let alone their picture.
I'd fix that one, even if it'd mean to drift away like with everybody else, just so I wouldn't hold this silly grudge any longer (I've tried to let it go, but I'm just upset and hurt by their lack of caring when they were so important to me, I guess :/ )
Do you celebrate Halloween in Chile? What's your favourite kind of candy?
(late reply is late, i forgot about my Ask.fm account >> )
We don't really :')
I like lemon/orange flavored hard candy x3
What's one thing that always makes you happy? PAP!
And dog kisses <3
You're stuck on an island. How would you spend your time?
Looking at plants, rocks, insects, drawing in the sand, climbing rocks/trees, and basically playing with everything I can play with x'D
