How long have you been on DeviantArt?
What does your username mean?
Sikari - It's not really something significant. I initially planned on making "Hikari" as my username because back during my weeaboo days, I was awfully addicted to the anime, Special A, specifically its heroine, Hikari. But, sadly, the name "Hikari" is taken, so I was quite pissed. In the end, I combined "Shit" (because I was cursing that time) + "Hikari" and there, voila! Sikari's made.
888 - according to the Chinese belief, 888 means unending luck and money. I'm not Chinese, but I like believing in supernatural stuff for some unexplainable reason.
Describe yourself in three words.
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
It was my first contest entry in a game called "TinierMe" (I'm not sure if you've heard of that, but if not, nevermind, the game's already closed). The drawing's not that crappy, but I'm pretty sure I didn't know what lineart was back then, and what the layers were for in photoshop, so I drew everything in a single layer. It wasn't exactly a crappy drawing, but I deleted it anyway.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Art is a broad subject.
As for me, I'm not much of a fan of visual arts, but what's most appealing for me is music. Yes it's art! I like creating music!
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I don't really like drawings that look awfully realistic, but I want dramatic artworks. I guess I'll choose a Final Fantasy kind of art style!
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Anything dramatic / emotional (mostly fantasy related like something that involves elves) and preferably digital.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I'm not sure if he/she'll be able to notice me, but I've been stalking him/her for a long time now! His/her drawings are just the type of art style I'm trying to accomplish! It's the perfection of my dreams! :bademoticon: :bademoticon: :bademoticon:
(I wish you the best, and you don't need to reply to this journal entry. I hope you don't mind if I tag you though hehe)
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
None so far. I want to meet everyone, but at the same time, I want to hide my identity, so I'll just leave everything to my imagination.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I'm not sociable, but talking to fellow deviants saved me from a life of loneliness
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Colored pencils, pen tablets, ball pen (if I want to create doodles on my notebook)
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
The dining room because everything is conveniently placed according to my lazy tastes!

I appreciate anything classy and eccentric. My personality is a combination of opposites, and at times, I just don't really get "me."
