  1.  How long have you been on DeviantArt?
      (Looks at home page) Apparently 8 years!       

   2.  What does your username mean?
       BlitzJaeger is a gamer tag I created decades ago as a teen. I love the German language and have a fascination with lightning, and I was starting a sci-fi world and wanted a cool character name. I looked in my handheld German translation booklet (pre-Google times) and combined Lightning Hunter. It also fit with my own name - I couldn't find the translation of my exact name (Chase) but Chase means Hunter, so I found the German word for Hunter and combined them. BlitzJaeger has been my online alias ever since, both in forums and on game consoles. It's rarely taken which helps.

It also happens to be a really cool Mecha from the Heavy Gear series. :la:

   3.  Describe yourself in three words.
   Imaginative, Dedicated, Honest (and I feel bad even saying that - humblebrags)

   4.  Are you left or right handed?
   Right of course. Although I wish I could do everything with both!

   5.  What was your first deviation?
   My first REAL deviation was this: Infinity Aleph Asuras by BlitzJaeger
   I had been doing a series of Fan Art for the game Infinty, and posting them on Image Shack, which worked until I posted this picture and it got flagged for nudity    (which shes actually not naked) i came over here and used my account that had previously only been used to view other peoples work.

   6.  What is your favorite type of art to create?
   Line art, concept art, pin ups. Although I am now trying to break into new styles...

   7.  If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
   I dont know what style I would call it, but I still struggle with faces and poses, I always need reference. Its my own fault, I dont practice enough, but I would like to be able to just start a picture and paint it out with no problems (ala Sakimichan and so fourth)

   8.  What was your first favorite?
   No idea...something sci fi probably. 

   9.  What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
   Mecha, Environments (mostly sci-fi or apocalyptic), concept art, pin ups, any sort of power armor or sci fi soldier themed things.

   10. Who is your all-time favorite deviant artist?
   I have an immense list of favorite artists. All with unique styles and abilities. So many have built their IP from nothing and are truly normal people that became famous. It would be unfair to single one out. See my list below of inspirational fellows, though it is by no means complete!

   11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
   I would like to meet any number of Artists on here. I have spoken with many and would like to meet many more!

   12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
   MANY artists have impacted me by simply creating inspiring art or interacting with me when I asked them questions or they commented on my work (or watched me). Particularly (ready?):

   13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
   Pencil and rag Paper, but via necessity I have been leaning Photoshop and its growing on me.

   14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    My room, I have thousands of inspirational images and combined with the right music and atmosphere it can be quite a charge for creating.

   15. What is your favorite DeviantArt memory?
   So many, seeing I had ACTUAL watchers of my work, especially other artists I watched. Getting comments and advice from famous Deviants...
  • Mood: Love
  • Listening to: Pandora (Zen Music and Liquid Mind)
  • Reading: Lost FLeet series (still)
  • Watching: Raising Hope, GOT5
  • Playing: Destiny and COD
  • Eating: Mango
  • Drinking: Chocolate Milk

Thanks for dropping by, Chase. Sauntered through your gallery, which proves you have the urge to create.  I liked your 2002 forays into color.  It seems you don't have much patience for practice, though; that you do it on the fly, cutting corners to make it serve your creative ideas for stories.

So, I won't bother you with critiques, just encourage you to study drawing methodically, which includes the serious study of gesture, basic forms, and anatomy.  (The formula to master is rhythm>volume>contour).  Needless to say a half hour of gesture drawing daily would be a wise investment to tie it all together.

I have some links in the Resource Center on my profile page that you would find helpful.  Click a few.  Find ones you like.

Thanks for browsing.

It's true I dont post any practice drawings, I dont much care for them myself and am only interested in posting near finished or finished pieces. I have hundreds of figure drawings and other characters, both digital and old school paper form, but I havent the time to scan them in...so thats not to say I dont practice, I just dont practice daily like some people do, I sit down and complete all or most of a piece all at once. Doing only the figure drawing I need for that particular character.

So I wouldnt say I purposely cut corners, as you suggested, but I do force myself to get to the next stage. At any rate, it has forced me to develop in a wide array of mediums and styles, and so I have grown in that sense. Hopefully my processes will become more streamlined and methodical in the future. Many times I simply want an idea put on paper, and I will likely revisit many of those ideas in the future.

These days I am focused more about  finishing full pieces, not just the line art, and I am not very fast yet in Photoshop and have a tendency to rotate my interests in my many hobbies, so a long time can pass in between my bouts of productivity. I do have many near completed paintings that will hopefully find space here in the upcoming future, but at the moment I spend most of my free time reading, writing or playing video games...

Cheers for stopping by.

One question good sir! Why not Blitz Jäger instead of BlitzJaeger?

I have always spelled it with ae because I try to keep the same name everywhere and many places you cannot use an umlaut. =)
