TEN FACTS ABOUT YOURSELF
Oh joy these again. I'm going to be unoriginal with these, and just looking around my room for inspiration!
1) I collect animal skins and bones. So far for skins, I have 5 bunnies, 2 weasels, 1 and a half fox, 1 calf, some scraps, and one Wolf <3
2) My room is my personal little museum! I also collect nice looking alcohol bottles, and am very proud of four different sized Liquor 43 bottles next to each other.
3) (looks around) Next to that, I have a Pokémon figurine collection that's over 500 figurines big.
4) And a manga + comic collection that fills more than a single bookcase.
5) I play the piano, though I don't have much time for it anymore!
6) I have a working planetarium that I still need to set up. I really want to learn more about constellations and astronomy.
7) My roommates that I now live with for 2,5 years, have never seen me with make-up. I only put on make-up for parties where I have to play the host, serving people food and drinks.
8) I am a real classical music lover and often visit concerts, especially if they play Rachmaninov.
9) Because of my love for classical music, I just LOVE cities like Prague, Vienna, Berlin, etc.
10) Uuuuh, I need to clean my room.
How many OCs do you have? Too many really, but the currently active ones are "only" 25 or so.
What fandom do most of them belong to? I have a few in the Pokémon Township universe now, but most belong to my own stories.
Which one is your favorite? At the moment Gabriël, who still hasn't been introduced to my gallery, haha! But of course also Therice, Raserga, Nordin, Garion, and the brothers Gideon and Gerard.
Which one do you draw the most? Right now? Gabriël
Do you request work of them? Always
Do you ship them with other people's characters, or your own? Ship Gabriël with other people's characters, but no one will touch my TerrApocalypse characters. They will only be shipped with my other OCs.
Do you roleplay with them? Only with Gabriël and Eclipse
How do you keep track of them? Put them in their own neat folder
Are there any that you would make real if you had the chance? Definitely Therice. Though she wouldn't like me for it.
When did you get into art? From really early, I have drawings in my drawing-box that are from when I was 1,5 years old!

It was also the second artwork I coloured digitally! I had no idea what I was doing -snorts-
What defines your artistic style? My style still changes so much in my opinion. But people always said my overall drawing style is very recognisable. I draw chibi's differently than others, and my early style is very influenced by Korean Manhwa and Sonic the Hedgehog.
