The first feature I focused on, as soon as I saw this portrait, were her eyes. The cropping makes the subject look very close and famil...




A wish on the wind by MarinCristina
A wish on the wind
Editing old photos is fun, especially when you're cooped up inside for days. Damn you February weather! :shakefist:

I'm also starting to get the hang of Alien Skin Exposure 6, and it's quickly becoming one of my favourite editing tools :la:
Move over, Photoshop OMG MOAR POEMS! 
Alright, let's do this! :w00t:

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I'll be 4 DA years old this month :party:
2. What does your username mean?

Well, I decided to be all mature and boring about it a while back, so now it's just my name :shrug:

3. Describe yourself in three words.

Ambitious lazy chameleon

4. Are you left or right handed?

Ambidextrous, actually. And yes, I do use it as a party trick :la:
which means I could totally lose an arm and still manage to brush my teeth woo

5. What was your first deviation?

This lovely Greek sunset, which is, strangely, still among my most viewed artworks:

Setting sun by MarinCristina

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

The kind that makes me lose track of time, sleep and food. Which is to say, any type of art I feel like doing at the moment.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

I don't think I'd like instant mastery, since a big part of what I enjoy about art is seeing your journey and progress along the way. That said, I wouldn't mind speeding up my progress in digital painting and portrait photography.

8. What was your first favourite?

This amazing infrared shot of a cherry tree:

The Cherry Tree by MichaelMagin

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

I find myself really drawn to:
:bulletgreen: beautifully edited, atmospheric nature/travel photography
:bulletgreen: majestic, engrossing fantasy landscapes/matte paintings
:bulletgreen: emotive, beautifully drawn character portraits from my favourite shows/books/movies

and overall: intriguing compositions, vivid colour contrasts and unique perspectives

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

I have so many amazing artists in my watchlist that I can't really choose a single one. And yes, I'm aware how PC that sounds, but each artist has a unique perspective that I appreciate for entirely different reasons.

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

The photojournalists, the travelers and the artists who didn't quit, no matter what. They have the best stories.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Each and every person who has commented on my art, whether critically or not, has shaped me in one way or another. I gained so much confidence as an artist simply from seeing people enjoy and pay attention to what I'm trying to do.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

My camera, my Wacom tablet and my brain.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

It's not really a place, more like a 'zone': a state of mind in which I feel inspired to create, to see, to feel. Being in nature is also a great incentive, as is traveling to new places :D

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

As many other artists, I think receiving a DD was my most uplifting and happy memory on DA (especially when it came during a time when I was feeling particularly dejected).

Pendulous posy by MarinCristina

Well, this went from silly to introspective fast :confused: Even though I'm not as active as I'd like to be, I'll keep improving and evolving in my journey, and I hope DA does the same.

Now let's go do stuff! :dummy: :typerhappy:

  • Mood: Happy
  • Listening to: Electro swing
  • Eating: cold watermelon. Mmm

Hey there! :w00t:
I'm Cristina, an artist who likes to dabble in various mediums and styles. Photography is my passion though, and I dedicate a lot of my time studying it :reading: Recently I've been fascinated by digital painting, so I'm also practicing that (with questionable degrees of success) :grump:
