That's all the planned shows this year! Let me know if there's any other events like to see me at
Thanks so much for your support at these events, it really means a lot as it means I can keep drawing!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
|Where did you learn to draw?|
I'm completely self taught! My high school art teacher told me cartoons were not art, so I didn't peruse any formal education in art. My drive came from within, to draw something into existence has always been intoxicating for me.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Drawing is the way I can best express myself. My art is like a visual diary, documenting feelings, thoughts and events. I find my inspirations all over, most often in everyday life, or the need get crap out of my head onto paper.
Please don't let me darker work fool you. I'm naturally a cheerful person; who has struggled with tough times. During the hard times I use drawing as an escape, a way to vent and put my story on paper, to be constructive with the destructive thoughts. It's been a life saver.
Do you do commissions?
Never, sorry. If someone is controlling my pen with their money I find it stifling. Staying independent is really important to me. I need to tell my own stories, an I know you guys appreciate seeing original work
Do you do requests?
No, sorry. See above. Minus money. This includes drawing you XD
What tools do you use?
PhotoShop CS6 and SAI, and a Wacom intuos3 drawing tablet, or my snazzy new Cintiq Companion. I recommend looking at Wacoms 'Bamboo' range if you're just starting out
Do you read your comments?
Every. Single. One. The support and feedback you give me is beautiful and often overwhelming I'm truly sorry I cannot reply to everyone (If I did I would never get any drawing done XD) but I read them all, and so many of you have touched me more deeply then you'll ever know
Can I use your art for something personal/non profit?
Please do! I love it when people use my art for wallpapers/backgrounds/tattoos/scrapbooks
I also love to see my work shared, as long as credit is provided
Can I use your art for my commercial product?
No. You may not use my art for your financial gain.
Can I do a school assignment about you?
What an honour ^-^ Please feel free to, though I'm sorry I can't personally answer questions, I have covered a lot in my full FAQ: fav.me/d5x4z8h
Can I create something inspired by you?
Wow, yes! I adore seeing works I helped inspire Please do. Stuff like this makes my day
Where can I buy prints?
You can order signed prints which I produce and sign personally form my store: www.storenvy.com/DestinyBlue
I also have a Society6, where my art can be found on phone cases, pillows, mugs and the like society6.com/destinyblue
I have more questions!
That's not actually a question
But if you would like to know anything more please check out my long full FAQ here: fav.me/d5x4z8h
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
- 11 years!
What does your username mean?
- The Blue part comes from well when I dyed by hair blue at 12 my dad started calling me Blue. It miiiight also be my favourite colour The Destiny part I chose because I like the idea of destiny, where as fate is predetermined, you carve your own destiny, a meaningful path you have agency over.
Describe yourself in three words.
- Creative, Resilient, Growing.
Are you left or right handed?
- Right. My handwriting is actually pretty terrible
What is your favourite type of art to create?
- Art with meaning. To connect and talk through my drawings means so much to me
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
- Oohh, ummm... not really a style, but my brain had problems with grasping perspective, having a deeper functioning understanding of that would be a great help (because I probably wont attain instant mastery, I'm studying perspective to get better at it )
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
- I suppose I'm drawn to similar stuff that I draw; I'm really interesting in how other artists play with colour, and I adore for a piece of art to take me somewhere, or make me feel something
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
- Eesh, what a questions! Well since this is a bit of a retrospective, I'll select and artist who an artist who influenced me a lot back in the day: MichelleHoefener a lot of the old works I used to adore she's taken down now, but pieces like these and captivated me back at the start of my journey. ~Actually it's her birthday today as well!
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
- I'd love to go to DeviantArt HQ and meet DA's founder spyed, as well as staff like madizzlee (who actually tagged me to do this XD) Moonbeam13, Heidi, and techgnotic, and see how this place is run!
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

What are your preferred tools to create art?
- Photoshop CS6 and Paint Tool SAI. Though I take pencil and sketchpad wherever I go
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
-The rolling hills of England provide me with a great feeling of peace, and I love being outside with nature, -Though digital art is not so easy to create outside! XD At the moment I live in London, but I often dream about my ideal house in the countryside... (with hidden rooms, library, staircase slide, emblems, Aperture Science test facility basement, and not forgetting a beautiful art study )
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
- Being given the Deviousness Award:
Celebrating Deviousness - July 2015Can't imagine a greater honor on here *wiped away single tear*
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
“It's probably a true to say I would not be a professional artist were it not for DeviantArt. When I joined the site 11 years ago I didn't want to be an artist, I just wanted to draw; I never imagined this place would help carve my career in art. But then I never expected a lot of what happened to me to happen. My early works were filled with fantasy, but art grew to be more than just a creative outlet for me, it grew to be an emotional one. As times got darker so did my work, drawing gave me a channel to explore and express my feelings, and through DeviantArt, I could connect, and it's been these personal connections, to thousands of people, of
