1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
According to stats, 10 years. Started 9/28/04

2. What does your username mean?
It's just a fancied up version of a nickname I had in high school and college, "Stealthy". I borrowed the last name from a video game character I liked.

3. Describe yourself in three words.

I'm pretty chill.

4. Are you left or right handed?
Born a lefty, converted to righty because that's what American schools used to do.

5. What was your first deviation?
Some mediocre fanart I had created and originally posted on Elfwood. 
My Precious Kratos Aurion by Stealthos-Aurion

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Art with a purpose. Something I can display or wear.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
I want to hone and perfect my photography.

8. What was your first favourite?
Saffron Skies by azhrarn 
This, I guess. It's solid work for what it is, but my personal tastes have since changed.

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Whatever looks like it was well-crafted and thoughtfully created. Why bother making something if it does not mean anything to you at all? Even commissioned work should be something you are interested in making.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I do not really have a favourite, but there are many artists I follow and enjoy seeing their work. 

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
People who sell art at conventions or events overseas. I want to buy their work, but if they don't sell online, it's rather difficult to support these people.

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I look around and see what other people are doing, then tell myself to not be a sloth - "Get up and do something."

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wacom Cintiq and PS for digital art, Nikon D200 or D5100 for photography, watercolors and pencils for painting, or all the crap I have for sewing. 

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Clearly not at my own house. I don't get much done there besides cooking meals and sleeping. 

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I had always wondered how people got Daily Deviations and thought it would be a nice achievement to get one. 11/12/13 something actually worked out.
Fragile Dreams: Crow 3 by Stealthos-Aurion
 
That aside, back in the day it was very nice making friends and connecting with fellow artists. There are a few people I still lazily keep up with on here since 04'. That's quite an achievement as far as internet connections go.

Um, could you give me some tips for a wig I'm making? See, I'm going to cosplay as a character with lavender hair, but the wig I'm using is Dark purple. I'm wondering how to lighten the color. It's one of those plastic-y, synthetic wigs.

Unfortunately, you cannot really lighten a synthetic wig in such a manner that say, people would bleach and dye their own hair to be a lighter shade. Wig fibers are really long extruded pieces of plastic. There are "dye" recipes that are commonly used, but that is really more of a tint and it only works if you need to go darker.

Your best bet is to get one in the right shade for the character and either save the darker one for a different costume or sell it. Or, you could just use the dark purple wig as is. Wigs sell quickly though.

I don't really have any other options when it comes to buying wigs(they're too expensive where I live, even the plastic ones). I'll probably just use it as it is. Thank you very much for your advice!

LOL it sort of is like the annual check-in. I'm up to the same ol', just being a teacher-librarian at the middle school here. Can't complain because everything could always be much worse.

What about you?
