Secondary action looks really nice, line work is clean, and you definitely kept body proportions consistent, so great job with those el...


I see several issues going on here, but the good news is that most of them are super easy to fix, so here goes. Animal anatomy looks go...

Nice use of subtle lighting, though those little bits of armor would be useless in a fight. No protection; she'd be dead within seconds...



Y'all might be sick of these, but I'm playing along for fun's sake. DA only gets one Quinceanera, right? (I mean, I can't be the only one who anthropomorphizes this site as a Latin-American girl. I just can't be. Whatever, let's do this.)

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Seven years this December. 

What does your username mean?
My last name's Maue, pronounced "Maui" like the island.
If you think I'll ever quit using that plz icon with this explanation, you're mistaken.

Describe yourself in three words.
Honest, sarcastic, ambitious

Are you left or right handed?

What was your first deviation?
Shield your eyes. Cicada Shell

What is your favourite type of art to create?
The type with characters who are part of a larger story.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
3D modeling.

What was your first favourite?
I may have deleted the original one, but here's the one that's furthest back in the collection. no title

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Creative character designs.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
These folks come to mind: :iconphobs: :iconcanadian-rainwater: :icontracyjb: :iconaltalamatox:

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Anyone I watch who also watches me (and who isn't already an irl friend).

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I'd like to thank glitter4gore for introducing me to DA back in high school. You brought me here, and I'm grateful for that. :heart:

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencils, Photoshop, and Toon Boom Harmony.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Somewhere outdoors; maybe a park. The solitude and fresh air clears my head.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
"The Tale of Dongs and Bongs" (which I swear to God is true):

This one time, I saw that a dude (in his 20s or 30s, if I remember correctly) had requested critique on a Nintendo DS screencap. I politely let him know that unless he helped create the game, he shouldn't ask for crits (or asspats, as I'm sure was the translation in his mind). A month or so goes by. All quiet, nothing to report. Then I notice some activity regarding someone posting an abundance of stolen MLP porn covered with pot leaves. It turns out that something had made DS guy snap and try to get himself banned (because deactivating without a fuss wouldn't have allowed him this blaze of... "glory", I guess). Scores of well-meaning commenters warned against what he was doing, to which he maturely responded by calling each of them a "faggot" on their profiles. And yes, I saw several of those messages, even receiving one myself. But mine was the only one I know of that was graced with a poorly-executed Muro drawing of a penis. In a sick way, it flattered me: So many "faggots", yet only one got the D. Needless to say, everyone reported him and he was banned for life. Many lulz were had. But, truth be told, I feel bad for the guy, and hope and pray he's matured and grown more comfortable with his art and his life. Because anyone who supplies such rare hilarity to so many people deserves to be happy.

  • Listening to: Cream on Chrome- Ratatat
