I find traditional art more fun than digital art, so though I do a lot of digital art, I consider myself more of a traditional artist. :dummy:

Though they don't appear often in my work, I really enjoy drawing fish and chains, and some other odd objects.

Feel free to ask any questions ^^

Hmm, I should probably answer this with a few characters. How shall I do this?
How about Cross's first few words are in bold and Kagami's are underlined? :3

1.) What is your name?
Cross / Kagami

2.) Do you know why you were named that?
I was named Cross because at the time, Aki had some obsession with some Pokémon creature called Heracross. I was even designed after it...
I was named Kagami simply because that was a word from a song that got stuck in Aki's head at the time.

3.) Are you single or taken?
...Why does it matter to you?
Single, I guess.

4.) Have any special abilities or powers?
I get super strength when I'm in a fantasy setting... but Aki didn't put me in a fantasy setting, so...

5.) Stop being a Mary-Sue!
Wha- I am not a Mary-Sue!
I-I didn't say anything...

6.) What's your eye color?
Green. Yellow-greenish...

7.) How about hair color?
...Blue and gray. Can you not see? (is clearly starting to get annoyed)
Just... what a red wolf normally has. :shrug:

8.) Have you any family members?
...Who knows?
Not at the moment. With me, anyway.

9.) Oh? How about pets?
(the two snicker a bit)

10.) That's cool, I guess. Now tell me something you don't like.
When people ask all these questions. It's better to just be silent sometimes...
The cold isn't that great....

11.) Do you have any activities/hobbies that you like to do?
Being outside is good enough for me.
(nods quickly) Yeah.

12.) Have you ever hurt anyone in any way before?
Not when they didn't deserve it... (grimaces)
Um... n-no, I don't think so.

13.) Ever...killed anyone before?
Thank goodness I haven't had to.
(Shakes her head quickly, wide-eyed)

14.) What kind of animal are you?
Eurasian wolf. Supposedly. (smirks)
I'm a red wolf. Don't see much of those anymore...

15.) Name your worst habits.
(Growls, gradually growing louder)
Um -- probably not paying enough attention?

16.) Do you look up to anyone at all?
There's not really anyone to look up to.
(glances around, then whispers in questioner's ear) Cross, of course...

17.) Are you gay, straight, or bisexual?
...What are you going to do with these questions?
I-I don't know...

18.) Do you go to school?
 I did.

19.) Ever wanna marry and have kids one day?
(pauses noticeably) ... Not really.
It wouldn't be a bad idea, I guess... depends...

20.) Do you have fangirls/fanboys?
(annoyed expression breaks into a grin and a chuckle) I sure hope not.
(also laughs)

21.) What are you most afraid of?
...Losing people.
...Death, probably...

22.) Okay... What do you usually wear?
(laughs) The previous user's response to this was pretty good. But anything that keeps me flexible and doesn't get too hot.
Probably something comfortable, but cool-looking... like a dark, long jacket.

23.) What's one food that tempts you?
 Food? ...Probably anything.
A nice treat every once in a while is good...

24.) Am I annoying you?
(ear twitch) Have you not noticed?
Uh- Not really...

25.) Well, it's still not over!
(Kagami is silent)

26.) What class are you? Low class, middle class, high class?
Classes? Some human thing?
You could put us in the low-middle class, I guess...

27.) How many friends do you have?
None other than Kagami.
Yeah, we're kind of alone...

28.) What are your thoughts on pie?
Pie? (tries to keep a straight face, but it's clear her mouth is watering) I don't remember last time I ate pie...
It's good.

29.) Favorite drink?
Water's fine with me.
Warm things are nice sometimes...

30.) What's your favorite place?
Anywhere outside where I can get away from all the city's noise.
(nods) Yeah.

31.) Are you interested in anyone~?

It was like that when I got here!

33.) Would you rather swim in a lake or the ocean?
Yeah, lake. All that salt in your fur... (shudders)

34.) What's your type?
...Type? What do you mean?
(tilts head) Maybe it's another human thing.

35.) Camping or indoors?
Camping, I guess...
As much as I like sleeping inside, camping wouldn't be too bad either.

38.) Are you still wanting the quiz to end?
(rolls eyes)

39.) Well, it's over. Now tag some people!
I don't know if I like tagging people... I don't like annoying them xD So anyone can do this if they want to develop their characters!

*sees your work* AMAIZING! How did you get so good at coloring? I cant color worth crap XD. such a great artist!
Aki-rain Apr 11, 2014  Student General Artist
Part of it is practicing. I've been using these colored pencils for a while and I really like them. It also helps for me to ask artists I admire what kind of techniques they use - I've learned a surprising amount that way.
And thank you very much!
Darkwolfthelycan Apr 11, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahh, That makes sense, trouble is, most of the artists I admire get so many comments they don't reply to anything XD. but sense you seem to be an exception, what techniques do you use that you think I could?
Aki-rain Apr 11, 2014  Student General Artist
I use colored pencils more often than anything else, so I can try to explain that a bit if that would be useful to you?
