Big Lazy Cat Divider by IridescentStardust
Jumping on the bandwagon... happy (late) birthday, deviantART! :D

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    I joined on the 13th of January 2010, so it's been about 5 years and a half.

  2. What does your username mean?
    Doertchen… is a silly nick name some of my friends made up. We were talking about weird names like Dörte. Dörtchen sounds like a mixture of Döner (kebab) and Törtchen (tartlet) and I hated them when they thougt "Hey, it's a funny name for Doreen!" but it actually sounds cute in the end. -chen is a syllable for small and cute things in German.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Sketch-addict, observer, daydreamer.

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Left handed.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    2o1o by Doertchen
    I think it was the one from February. South Park was the fandom for me at that time.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Cute children-book-like illustrations full of positivity. It's soothing and calming me down on bad days. It's kind of funny how I create the most adorable things when I feel sad or lonely. Sometimes I wish for a more profound tonality in my art, but creating art that cheers me and others up and makes us smile is currently the thing I enjoy the most.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Playing an instrument, probably the piano. Luckily my boyfriend does that for me. :D

  8. What was your first favourite?

    What our fandom's made of... by muncher190

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Atmospheric illustrations with a hint of magic. Well, it's mostly more than just a hint. I love everything whimsical and extraordinary. Here are a few examples:

    The Fog by Checanty     Right before the Great Flood by pesare      sleeping fox by lettipaa

      Paper Boats by golden-quince      bear down by ittybittynidhi      Sweet cold outside by STelari

    Winter night by Vasylissa       Castle Book by nokeek

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    There are so many talented souls I discovered through the years! Here are only some of them: Checanty, STelari, crazygrin, koyamori Lufilie (not active around here, but she has been a huge inspiration to me), Miss-Belfry, Finnguala, nokeek, pettryb, ullakko, and maaaany more!

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    Though question, I'd like to have a huge meeting with so many people. I made most of my artist friends at a German ACEO- community called "" and I'd really love to meet some of them. That counts, since they're also deviants. ;)

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    It's hard to name anyone specific, I think it's the overall experience that really had an impact on me and the way I experience art. Before I got here, I only knew a German community focusing on manga and anime. Through deviantART I discovered a huge variety of different styles. It got me away from what felt like a dead-end road and helped me find my own way of drawing.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    I have a small box of water colours with 21 small pans that I always carry with me. Together with a water brush, some pencils, fineliners and a few coloured pencils (Polychromos by Faber-Castell) it's my survival drawing kit. I mostly draw in several sketchbooks, but my favourite water colour paper is hot pressed / demi satiné paper from Clairefontaine. Even though I enjoy the structures of rough paper, this one is perfect if you're addicted to black fineliners. Which I am.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    I get inspiration and ideas all the time, but for the execution I need a large desk. I love the one in my room at my parent's house, there's no computer to distract me. And it's home and contains years of drawing-memories. I feel more peaceful there than in my own flat.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    Hmm, maybe suggesting awesome art works from lovely people as Daily Deviations and seeing them getting the attention they deserve. Doing art trades has mostly been great as well.
    And, of course, submitting art, coming back the next day and having a lot of feedback messages in my inbox! :love:
    I also remember being featured and becoming a contributor at GrimGloomTale. Lately I haven't been very active and own art hasn't been grim and gloomy enough to fit in, but it's nevertheless my favourite group around here!
