I start my second year of University tomorrow. Not only that, but I'll also be assisting a Professor (along with other undergrads) in teaching Organic Chemistry II. So, as you see, I may be a little less active from today onwards. I'm not exactly sure how productive I'll be during the next four months, but I'll try my best to balance school, work, and artistic hobbies. Shrug 

That is all.

So I logged in a few days ago only to find that I've just hit the milestone for 1,000 pageviews. I know I've only been active for a short while, and that my art's got ways to go, but I genuinely thank everyone for helping me make it this far. I mean, I'm not an art student at all (I'm actually majoring in Biochmistry) and I've barely taken any formal art classes, so everything I put out is mostly self-taught, thus a result of trial and (lots of) error, and is really just done for a hobby...so I'm really happy to learn that many people really do enjoy my art. ;w;

For this, I think it's appropriate to do the Devianart questionnaire. I know that I'm obviously late to the party, but I think it's a good way for an artist to communicate with their viewers, which is something I'd like to do as much as I can (despite being busy with school and life in general). Well, here goes nothing...

  • How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    10 months in this account, and nearly three years in my previous, empty-ish, one. However, I was lurking around this website for at least five years prior... :paranoid: revamp 

  • What does your username mean?
    Allow me to tell you a funny story...book 
    For quite some time, I've had an interest in translating Japanese characters (katakana, hiragana, kanji...) to the English language and vice-versa. I found it especially useful whenever I encounter terms in Anime and Manga, whenever I had to make up some random power or name for a character in a guild rp (which I don't often engage in nowadays), or whenever I just felt like it. One day, I happened to combine the character for the word "ore" and "sky" together and, knowing how not so reliable online translators can be (specifically Google translate), I got something along the lines of "mining the heavens." Thus, "Miner of Skies" was born. Ahoy revamp 

    Its meaning really is up to you. I just thought it sounded hella poetic and went with it. 

  • Describe yourself in three words.
    Silly, Shy, Smart(*bricked*)

  • Are you left or right handed?
    Right handed!   

  • What was your first deviation?
    This fine gentleman here. Kao Emoji-43(Sad waving) [V3] 
    White Elpizo by MinerofSkies

  • What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Anime style and cartoon- usually anything disproportionate/chibi-esque which defies the laws of anatomy. >w>
    I would love to start drawing some mecha in the furture.

  • If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    ...firstly, I would love to master anatomy. I believe that would truly be useful to implement in my drawings.
    As for art styles, I've got too many to choose from. :dizzy: remake  Well, aside from the obvious Rockman Zero style (and its derivatives), I would love to master Mogeko/Okegom/funamusea/Deep-Sea Prisoner's (holy shit, that's a lot of aliases for one person (◉-◉) ) style of drawing. I really love his work and the games he's developed, moge~ Mogeko 

  • What was your first favourite?
    Errrrrrrrr...... >w> *searches 'Favorites' tab*

  • What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    A whole bunch of fanart.  (┛◉Д◉)┛彡┻━┻

  • Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    I love everyone in my watch list! ^u^
    Though I tend to visit ZA-18, Tomycase, UMX, shonuff44, Cageychick, NanFe, Lady 20XX, and other artists quite often.

  • If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    I would really love to meet my good friend. :iconjay-jay3:

  • How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    :iconjay-jay3: In the five years we've known each other, he was always there to support me and encourage me to keep on drawing whenever I felt discouraged. Support the sadness I know I've got a long way but, if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here today. I am really proud to call him my best friend. Thank you so much! ^_^ 

  • What are your preferred tools to create art?
    I proudly rely on my trusty pencil for sketches, and my mouse for lineart+color (on GIMP)! Ahoy revamp  
    ....I really want a tablet... ;w; 

  • What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    My room, or any place where no one's looking. I tend to get flustered when that happens... >.> <.< ^.^ V.V

  • What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    I've only been truly active for a short amount of time, so I can't really give much of an input right now. But hopefully, I'll be able to make plenty of wonderful memories with everyone here. ^w^

Wha-? Why? When? :baffled: 

Why haven't we been notified about this sooner, let alone been properly informed about this new feature? And why have the membership prices doubled?
Care to shed some light on that, dA staff?

Hello, folks. Miner here.
I moved in from my old account: neartonil.deviantart.com/
I hope to post more content in here than I did in my last account, now that I've started using GIMP to color my drawings. I may not be a professional, but I'm generally satisfied with the results.
