Still "semi-professional" but I do take commissions. Send me a Note to inquire.
Currently looking to facilitate an art studio open for free use on a donation basis. I moved away from the city I've lived in for the last 43 years in order to find a place I could actually afford. But I need to find somewhere to set up my studio.
How long have you been on DeviantArt? 3 years on Nov. 8th
What does your username mean? "Tinidril" is the name of a character in a book (Perelandra) who is not referred to by her name until the last chapter. It was the most obscure literary reference I could think of. Usually that means that I'm the first person to try using it to sign up for things, but it didn't work at DA... someone had the temerity to use "Tinidril" before I signed up! Hence, the "the-" stuck on the front Plus, I am the owner of www.tinidril.com!
Describe yourself in three words. Artist, musician, poet
Are you left or right handed? Right
What is your favourite type of art to create? Portraiture
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Caricature
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Really exceptional work from people or groups I watch. I seldom "browse" by topic.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? TheElvishDevil , she was my first dA friend!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? jetdog-art ... though not in a creepy-stalker-kinda-way
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? A very dear dA friend, flamingodancer123 , was the first to gift me a subscription to dA.
What are your preferred tools to create art? There is no substitute for good old fashioned pencils, brushes, pens, markers... traditional is messy, but honest. I do love the option to work digitally, but still like it to at least look traditional
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? a quiet place, usually right here in front of the computer... yeah, even with traditional media!
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? The first comment! Community interaction is core to the success of dA
