Personal Quote: "The more I do, the better I can do."
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
2. What does your username mean?
Katy is a name of Scotch origin. 133 is a number that I keep seeing in my life.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Cute macabre art.
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
I do not speak of that art piece anymore.
The reason why I don't talk about it isn't because I don't like it or because I'm "ashamed" of it, but because of how much attention it seems to ironically get (due to its "so-bad-it's-good" factor) compared to my current work. People also tend to reblog/post it without sourcing me, so I won't even be given credit for this artwork. And since it's not sourced, it's also not dated, and therefor people don't realise that it was first posted in 2009 and that the artist (me) has changed in art style over that 6-year time span.
And that was the reason why I'd kept it on my DeviantART for so long: I wanted to illustrate how an artist's skill and style doesn't just appear overnight.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
I've started to become very interested in making visual novel games. I like how you can tell a story using this medium through text and visuals.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I would love to master yuumei 's art style. Her detailed, painterly style is so different from my style.
Or I'd like to master RevolverWinds 's collage style. It's so surreal and beautiful and it's what made the game Middens stand out so much.
Or VI0LYNCE 's art style. Her use of colour and lighting is amazing!
8. What was your first favourite?
I can't remember for sure, but going back to the last page of my favourites folder, it appears to be fan art for the animated series, Dragon Hunters. A series that I recommend checking out if you haven't heard of it. The opening theme song is by The Cure, and the series has since had a beautiful CG film adaptation.
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Art that is aesthetically-pleasing to me. Something that I look at and go, "I like how this looks. I like the art style."
(I'll just merge these three questions together) 10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?/11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?/12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
real-faker. She's a really nice person and I love her art style and her sense of humor. I discovered her by sheer chance through deviantART (her comic Welcome to Hell, was featured as a Daily Deviation) and I became one of the colourists for her film Welcome to Hell, which I liked so much that I've currently trying to produce the video game adaptation for it. I also created my Tumblr blog so I could follow the film's production as it was being made, and now, after the completion of the W2H film, I still use my Tumblr.
I would love to someday work with her again.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I've been using a drawing tablet to digitally create art for a while now, but I still always start off with a pen and scrap paper.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
That's a very difficult question. Gardens and going out to see nature is very important to me, but it's not the best nor most convenient physical place to create art. It's more like "the inspirational place you go to before you go to a place to create art."
I like to create art in studio environments. You're surrounded by sooo many creative people who are making beautiful things.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
That's difficult. Perhaps it's discovering one of the artists I've already mentioned above. Or perhaps it's discovering DeviantART in the first place. A site that has allowed me to show publicly share my artwork and has allowed me to discover artists I wouldn't have been able to meet in-person.
