  • How long have you been on DeviantArt?

On this account: 2 years. I am a dummy! 
I had an account before this one, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was called or what email I used (I was very young).

  • What does your username mean?

I post on DA under the name ElvenIllusionist. Elven because I'm often likened to LOTR elves. (Having a strong British/Irish/Norse heritage I am a bit taller than the NZ average, very slim (some would say 'willowy'), with green eyes and wild blonde/gold curls) Not to mention I am a HUGE LOTR (& all things Fantasy) fan!
ElvenKingBeGigglinplz ...Annnnd illusionist, because that is what artists are (in all their forms) they make you believe in the unbelievable, which is true magic!

  • Describe yourself in three words.

Artist. Bookworm. Cinephile. (It's my tagline!)
:artist: :book  Film 

  • Are you left or right handed?

Right handed

  • What was your first deviation?

I uploaded ALOT of Photography onto Deviantart when I first created this account. But later my focus changed to my artworks, so I took it all down. You could probably find it on the timeline of my official Facebook page tho: […

2015 Draw This Again Meme by ElvenIllusionist

  • What is your favourite type of art to create?

I don't feel like I have a favourite 'type' in terms of medium. I love trying new things and different techniques!
Definitely my favourite 'type' of art, in terms of subject, would be portraiture, typography, with a dash of nature studies.

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

Art style? Hmmm...
Digital = I'd love to instantly master that toon-y semi realism look!!!
Traditional = That hyper-realist-high-fantasy-mega-epic-painting style of the old masters!!! (think massive portraits and cathedral ceilings!)
Da Vinci Fella (Artists) 

  • What was your first favourite?

'Countdown' by Yuumei
Countdown by yuumei

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

Again, the 'type' thing. I don't have a type. I'll favourite anything from a 13 year olds underdeveloped sketch, to a mature professionals masterpiece. What matters most to me is creative ideas, and excellent composition.

  • Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Anne Stokes. Anne Stokes ftw!!!
While everyone in High School seemed to be gushing over boybands, the only person I truly fangirled over was Anne (and her artwork). To me, she represented the type of artist I wanted to be one day!

Now I am a bit older and have a greater appreciation for my own abilities, I try to focus on becoming the best 'Naomi' I can be. Though I still love her artwork dearly, and I proudly own many of her official merchandise.

Siren's Lament by Ironshod

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

Anne Stokes

  • How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

My boyfriend of 3 years, Nicholas, is also an avid Deviantartist. In our first year of university, doing our Design degree, he really encouraged me to try new things and explore digital medium more openly then I had before. Because of him I found a greater courage within me to REALLY put myself out there, and run WITH my dream. Instead of chasing it.

  • What are your preferred tools to create art?

Pencil and paper. It is how I began as a child, and still delights me now!
I often feel my ideas become more 'real' and 'alive' when I use traditional medium. But I love my Wacom tablet heaps too!!!

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

Anywhere that is quiet, with clean air, and a wide open space to look out at.

  • What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

When I created a joint stock photography account with Nick. It is something I had been wanting to do for a long time, and a good excuse for me to dress up! (I LOVE dressing up in costumes!)

Rain Stamp by Stamp221 LOTR - Wander by Jenna-Rose Galadriel Stamp by Adraowen Pixel icon: Calariell by TheRapace

Hello there everyone! I am an ambitious young artist and film-maker from Aotearoa :)

I love the world of imagination and fantasy... just being able to share my ideas and characters with other people through my art brings me great satisfaction and joy.

I post on DA under the name ElvenIllusionist. Elven because I'm often likened to LOTR elves. And illusionist, because that is what artists are (in all their forms) they make you believe in the unbelievable, which is true magic!

I also produce Stock Photography:

I hope you will enjoy looking at some of the artwork in my gallery :)
