--Ten facts about myself--
1.) I'm currently entertaining the idea of creating my own manga/graphic novel.
2.) Before I joined DeviantArt and explored the community, I only knew of two artists that were actually on DeviantArt and those artists I revered. Today, those two monoliths from a time before I was an artist are among my watchers. They are
3.)I have a indescribable aversion to giving critiques on other peoples art. I cannot fathom as to why this is because I recognize how useful they can be. I mean, I depend on them myself for growth but somehow, no matter what I tell myself, my emotions equate it to being petty or malicious and that compulsion makes it really difficult.
4.) I'm arachnophobic.
5.) I am a huge Kingdom Hearts fan.
6.) Healthy living and regular exercise has a strong foothold in my day.
7.) I'm firmly against any intoxicating substances such as alcohol and drugs.
8.)I hold Honor and loyalty to those who deserve it in very high esteem and practice them as a philosophy of life.
9.) I'm a slow writer and I've always considered the art of the pen to be one of my week points. Due to this fact being blazingly apparent to me, I've spent many years in privet study trying to overcome this flaw. I pray that one day I'll conquer it.
10.) This is the most time I've spent on a tag. I've probably taken it the most seriously too.
-- Questions from my tagger--
1). If you could live in one time period in any part of history, what would it be and why?
- My response: Honestly, I'm quite comfortable with the time period I live in now. Aside from the economic situation of certain social classes in the world, I feel quite contended. That being said, I wouldn't choose a time period far from this one.
2). What are the biggest turn offs about a person to you?
-My response: Arrogance, Dishonesty, ignorance, obstinacy, using/ taking advantage of someone's hospitality and (or) emotions; preying upon the underprivileged or weak, extremely massy behavior, and neglecting to do what is right are all traits that I dislike.
3). Ways to win your heart?
-My response: Aside from the obvious significance of some outward attractiveness, honesty, a graceful nature, intelligence, humility, an open mind, loyalty, a selfless and clean personality; a humorous disposition, reliability, and some common interests I suppose.
4). Last movie you saw?
-My response: Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. I've been on a nostalgic trip through the Star Wars saga recently.
5). The most memorable thing that's ever happened to you?
-My response: Reflecting upon my life right now, one thing jumps out to me in particular and that is my move from my home state of Michigan to Alabama. It is incredible how the atmosphere can change just a few hundred miles away.
6). What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
-My response: No judging you say? Well, well, well, I would march straight up to the Square Enix headquarters and apply for a job there!
7). What are your bad habits?
-My response: I don't reply to my email or DA massages fast enough. -_-
8). Do you have any role models? If so, list them and explain why you admire them and how they've helped shape your life?
-My response: In regards to art, my role models are Tetsuya Nomura and Ayami Kojima. There specific styles have greatly influenced me and pioneered my growth. Furthermore, the games they were involved in have elevated my imagination and inspired me to pursue drawing seriously in the first place. They have impacted me since my adolescence.
My personal role models revolve around the elders of my family though. Beginning with my older brother and following up with my mom and dad and ending with my grandparents. Although each one of them has their own flaws, they can each offer a piece of wisdom that is priceless to me.
9). What is worse: Failing terribly or never trying?
-My response: Well obviously failing terribly is worse! However, rarely does trying anyway mean a complete lost venture. Much can be learned from a failure.
10). If you had one hour to live, who would you spend that time with, or what would you do?
-My response: I would spend it normally. If I knew my death was imminent I would not want to trouble the people around me with the truth nor myself for that matter. I would choose to continue on casually so that it would hit me by surprise. If I dwelled on the matter I might be moved to do something rash or spend my time in sad goodbyes. Neither of which I consider to be a good time.
-- Like always, I've prepared my own list of difficult questions for the intellectually curious--
Q1.)Noting their locations, I place two magical aces and a magical jack face down on a table, in a row; you do not see which card is placed where. The magical property of these cards is that they each have the ability to think and speak. Your problem is to point to one of the three cards and then ask them a single Yes or No Question, from the answer of which you can, with certainty, identify one of the three cards as an ace. Now, take this fact that I'm about to tell you into mind before you ask your question: Both aces are twins and honorable ones at that. They can never tell a lie and thus always tell the truth. However, the jack is an uncertain fellow and he tells the truth about as often as he tells a lie. This makes his answers generally random. So, bearing in mind that you can only ask one Yes-no question to only one of the three cards that are face down on the table, explain the process you would take to achieve discovering the identity of at least one of the aces.
Q2.) You are a math teacher approaching a bus where you see a strange phenomenon. There are seven of your school children on one of the oldest school buses. Each one of the kids on the bus is equipped with seven new backpacks. In each one of these said backpacks, there are seven large cats. For every large cat, there are seven tiny cats. Amused by this, an interesting question pops in your head: How many legs are there in the bus? So, how many legs are on the bus?
Q3.)Before you there are three stoves. A spectacular glass stove, a strong brick stove, and a modest wood stove. You only have one match though. Which do you light up first?
Q4.) On a beautiful summer day, two fathers and two sons go fishing. Each of them catches one fish. So, why do they bring home 3 fishes?
Q5.) Two cops walked into a room with no windows and found a dead man who obviously hung himself from the ceiling, though they couldn't figure out how. There was no chair or table beneath him to conclude that he might have used it to hang himself. They just found a large pool of water. How did the man mange to hang himself?
Q6.) If you know me then I am nothing, but if you don't, then I am something, what am I?
Q7.) A woman shoots her husband, and then holds him under water for five minutes. Finally, she hangs him. Five minutes later they enjoy a wonderful dinner together. If all in this story is true, how can this be?
Q8.) An adventurous woman went on a trip with her famed companions: the crafty fox, the noble goose, and the ever retarded sack of corn. Soon the woman came upon a river, which she had to cross and found a rather small boat to cross the river with. After observing its shape and overall size, she concluded that she could only take herself and one other --whether it be the fox, the goose, or the corn -- at a time. She certainly could not leave the fox alone with the goose or the goose alone with the corn because those situations would evidentially turn out in a loss of a party member. If you were in her shoes how would you get all of them safely over the river?
Q9.) Placing yourself again in a teacher parody, you address your class with a lesson about the topic of the week. The class has been studying and learning all about Roman numerals (X = 10, IX=9 and so on), for the past 4 days. Your staring pupil, who is overly enthusiastic about the material, asks if he can give you an exercise on the topic this time. Impressed by this, you step to the challenge and he asks you to draw a single continuous line and turn IX into 6. The only stipulation the student asserts is that the pen cannot be lifted from the paper until the line was complete. How do you complete this task?
Q10.) A boy was at a carnival and went to a booth where a man said to the boy, "If I write your exact weight on this piece of paper then you have to give me $50, but if I cannot, I will pay you $50." The boy looked around and saw no scale so he agrees, thinking no matter what the man writes he will just say he weighs more or less. In the end the boy ended up paying the man $50. How did the man win the bet?
When finished, request the answers from me and I'll note you them.
Those who I've challenged with this tag:
I'd also like to take the time to promote the giveaway in the link above.
Politely requested for me too and I will concede.
