How long have you been on DeviantArt?
8 years and some change
What does your username mean?
Captain Grossaint was a nickname of mine for a short period in highschool. My old username was ShratehAwesome, which was also based on a nickname except for Shra is actually a nickname I respond to just as well as I respond to my real name. Captain-Grossaint just sounds/looks better than anything with "teh" in it, you know?
Describe yourself in three words.
Really fucking crazy.
Are you left or right handed?
Right-handed but I hope to start doing some calligraphy and art with my left hand soon.
What is your favorite type of art to create?
I so adore drawing couples and just people in general. My chibis are really fun because they're much less formulaic than anything else I do. But yeah, just anytime I'm drawing a person is my favorite type of art
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I'd really love to learn to do really lovely sketches in the style of Brigid Vaughn.
What was your first favorite?
I think whatever the actual first one was is no longer on DA but this really great fantart of the game Folklore is the last one in the folder. I'm pretty certain my first favorite was of some Twilight fanart or something.
What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
Fanart, cool looking shit, silly comics and stuff.
Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
Oh gosh that's so tough! NTDevont (I don't even think that's his username anymore lol) and Burdge Bug are some of my very favorites but I definitely have others who I haven't listed and I'd never be able to narrow it down to just one. Never.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I have so many people here who have so positively impacted my life, it blows my mind. So many people who have dropped so many great comments, supported me for years, and so much more. Anyone who has read any of my writing and given feedback on it is automatically one of my favorite people forever, no matter what, and it just gives me so much light in my life to know there is this fantastic group of people here for me who will always tell me what's what and brighten my outlook no matter the feedback. Y'all know who you are.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Digital: Intuos4 and Paint Tool SAI
Traditional: Cross gel pens, Paper Mate markers, black and white charcoals on toned paper, Prismacolor colored pencils...the list goes on.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Anywhere my head chooses. I've never had to get away to create. I always do it from the comfort of my recliner or my office or wherever I feel.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Over seven years, I have a lifetime of grand memories with so many incredible people on this site alone. As I mentioned before, there is practically a team of people here I can always reach out to when the time calls for it. Every moment I've spent on this site while honing my craft, getting advice, and all else. If you're one of those people, you know who you are, and you probably already know how grateful I am for you, but I'm going to repeat myself. You are the reason I'm here. You are the reason I create and strive to be better. You aren't the only reason I create, but you're definitely why I've wanted to get better and why, in the end, I HAVE gotten better. Thank you. You're amazing.
