Ehh I'll do it.
1.How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Seven years, going on eight in just a few days.
2. What does your username mean?
In true clumsy fashion, my username is actually spelled wrong. Properly spelled, it would be Undying Nephilim. Those of Jewish or Christian faith might recognize the Nephilim as a race of giants that corrupted and attempted to destroy mankind (Genesis 6:4). They are often attributed as the reason for God's flooding of the Earth. Unfortunately the Nephilim seemed to have had survived and their descendants, the Amalakites (Numbers 13:33), went on to wage war with the Israelites in the book of Judges (3:12, 13, 6:1-3, 33; 7:12; 10:1). The Amalakites and all trace of the Nephilim were finally driven to extinction by King Hezekiah (1 Chr. 4:42, 43).
In all cases the Nephlim are described as giant, lumbering Humans. Theories on what exactly the Nephilim were are pretty varied. The most popular theory is that they are the children of fallen angels whom had physical relations with human woman. This theory is unlikely though, seeing as fallen angels are clearly described as having no physical bodies in the entirety of the Bible (Mark 5:13). Only angels in direct service of God are loaned physical bodies when interacting with humans. More than likely the Nephilim were purely human descendants of Cain, and just grew to a staggering height. Secular theories suggest they might have been the Neanderthals driven to extinction by early human civilizations. The Philistine warrior Goliath is sometimes thought to have been a descendant of the Nephilim due to his large size description, though the book of Samuel never confirms this.
3. Describe yourself in three words.
Has No Life.
4. Are you left or right handed?
5. What was your first deviation?
It's long since been deleted. It was a terrible picture of Darunia punching someone off screen.
6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
3D models and animations with to go with them is currently my favorite form of art to create.
7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
There is not a specific term for it, but it's generally just called "speed painting" or "concept art." Despite years of practice, I have never been able to remotely get it down and it frustrates me to this day.
8.What was your first favourite?
This lovely picture of Saria by Mirrore
9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I favorite all kinds of art. As far as subject matter, it seems to almost entirely be characters and settings from the fantasy and scf fi genres.
10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I like different artists for different reasons.
I really enjoy ukitakumuki's insanely detailed and realistic art style.
On the other end of the spectrum, I really love GENZOMAN's colorful and animated art style, in particular his sketches.
VanEvil is one of my favorite artists in terms of style. She's mastered that speedpanting/concept art look that I mentioned trying to emulate earlier.
11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Oh goodness, so many people.
Those three people I just previously mentioned. I'd especially love to meet Vanevil in person. Maybe she could finally show me exactly how to paint that lovely art style!
Despite the fact that he's composed music for all of my games for years now and attempted to dominate his puny empire in CivV, I've still yet to hang out with morphiul in person.
I now have to try and meet JediAnnSolo, who's Agency comic and interpretation of Krystal has largely inspired my Star Fox game. Her insanely positive and optimistic attitude in the face of situations most people would rant and yell at the internet about as done wonders to calm my nerdrage down and be more of an optimist myself.
I almost met Luifex awhile back, I'd still like to hang out sometime if time ever permits. I'll pay for KFC!
I always seem to get along with Atomic-Chinchilla, what with Babylon 5 and all. Apparently he's lived down the street and I should have thought to go say hi.
12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Undoubtedly VoidQueenElishiva . I've known her for so many years and met her through Deviantart at what I'd consider the darkest point in my life so far. With a few exceptions, I've spoken to her almost every day of my life since then. Her insane attention to detail and care for my art has helped me improve in every way possible. Everything from finally helping me understand proper human proportions and historically accurate outfits. She has watched almost every single animation I have worked on in progress, helping me tweak and fix things that do not work. Most of my animations would not have been possible without her input and help. She helped me get my first and only Daily Deviation: The Mushroom Lady .
More than anyone she's helped me discover who I am. When so many other people told me my ideas were impossible to do, too stupid to start on, or would not work, she did the exact opposite. Hyrule: Total War would not exist if it was not for her encouragement and nurturing of the idea when so many others shot it down before even being started. If you love my work, please take the time to thank her as well. I probably would have given up years ago if it were not for her.
13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Maya is the best. I use it exclusively to create all my 3D models. Photoshop naturally, I make all my textures in it. I have about 30 other programs and tools I use to create all my games.
14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Any time music I like is playing.
15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Anytime I see a person say my work made them happy.
