Yadei Boob Studies
Soo, starting today I'm going to spend this next week taking my friends original characters and using them for body studies. TODAY WAS BOOBS. Who better for boobs than Yadei.

Anybody want me to draw their oc tomorrow? First one to post gets it. 
I want to go back and revisit this old fanart from 2009 and redraw it with a more interesting and dynamic composition without straying too far away from the original look, since it's a redraw. Does anyone have any advice? Should I leave their feet out or try and include them this time around?

OH man. OH man. 

How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Ohhh boy howdy, dear lawdy and diet jesus.... Lemme see. I've be a member since June 22, 2005, over 10 years of DA for me. I started my account when I was in my senior year of high school. Back then that's what all the super fly artists were doin, makin DA accounts. 

What does your username mean?

Neriah is a biblical name that means Light, Lamp of God. I came up with it while this jewish cousin of mine was still around- :iconkiota:
It literally translates to sexy blonde playboy model, according to Urban Dictionary. Must be true facts.

Are you left or right handed?
Right handed. 

What was your first deviation?

Angelic Azumi by Neriah
Back when I was a super active Gaiaonline member. Everything I drew looked like :iconanimeplz:

What is your favourite type of art to create?

GOOD ART! The kind Neil Gaiman talks about in his Inspirational Commencement Speech. Though he never went to college.
I enjoy stuff that looks like it took some amount of hand skill; I'm impressed by artists who are able to come up with strong compositions without spending hours and days on them. My friend :iconcurry23: was a big inspiration for me in college. She could fill up an entire sketchbook in a week and she never seemed to agonize over one piece of art the way I would. 

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

I wanted to be able to draw EXACTLY like :iconshirotsuki: when I was in college. Her use of airy feathery colors are gorgeous.

You can sort of see how I would try and imitate her style in some of my artwork, especially here. 
Never Alone by NeriahSong of Saya Fanart by NeriahA V-Day Achie Doodle by Neriah

If I could instantly master someone else's style right now it'd definitely be hers. She's also a massive sweety in person! I met up with Shiro at a few Texas anime conventions, though she was too busy for a commission.

What was your first favourite?

pixie's dream . . . by mehmeturgut

I got nuffin. 

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Mostly my friend's artwork nowadays. I like seeing the progression of their art. Then of course there's all the fanart. I'm pretty terrible about searching for fanart, particularly of movies I really like. FRIGGIN MAD MAX WAS SWEEEET!!
NuX by AkiMao

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

I can't play favorites, that's just meeaaaaaan. But :iconlhumina:'s artwork probably has given me the most lulz and feels; I always return to her artwork periodically because it's cheerful adorable silliness always picks me up.

:icontheargoninja: is another favourite artist and friend on DA. Even after I disappear for months and months he's always the one to get the first comment on any new artwork I post. He's ALWAYS THERE. ALWAYS prepared with something funny and cute to say, like a neeeeeenja. Argo also is always always down for an art trade. Doesn't matter when or what, he'll do that art trade wit ya. 

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

I haven't seen my cousin Lhumina in AAAAAAAAAGES. I MISS HER SOOOO MUCH. ;;A;; OHMIGOD IT'S BEEN YEARS AND I MISSHER SOMUCH. We used to be so tight and now I'm living in New York and she's going to state college in Texas. I wish we saw each other more often.

Lemme see, I moved to the east coast just recently so I'm pretty durn close to :icontaioshiro:. I'm planning out her trip to come visit me. :> 

If I had the opportunity I wouldn't mind seeing :icongafagear: again and his girlfriend :iconcaptainbutter:. It'd be nice to run into them together at a coffee shop, or game shop more likely, sometime and say hello. Tell them they're adorable together and I hope everything is peachy keen.

I'd love to some day go back to Texas and visit Akon again; I used to see :iconendling: and :iconzombiesmile: there together. Things have really changed since I moved away though, it'd be really great to see all those artists I used to visit once a year. 

I would also love to meet :iconargoninja: someday!! Every time I see a blonde guy here in New York State I wonder if it might possibly be ninja that is the Argo.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

My life has changed pretty drastically because of the impacts of people from DA. Somethings have been really good self-enriching changes for the better and others have been self-eroding. 

I never really took Deviantart very seriously at first, it was pretty much a dumping ground for my artwork all the way up until Lhumina introduced me to a group called Pokemon Crossing in 2011, back when we lived close to each other. The idea of having a character that interacted with other artist's characters in that kind of setting was pretty novel to me and I ended up going a little crazy, throwing myself into the artwork and the role plays. I've submitted more deviations of my psychopathic abra/kadabra named Regan than anything.  At that time I got to interact with a bunch of really hilarious and awesome writers/artists including :icontaioshiro:, :icongranite-skull:, :iconcaptainbutter:, :icongafagear:, :iconvoxrobotics:, :icontartly-sweet:, :iconpowerwing-amber:, :iconbluu02:, :icondarkm00nshine:,  and their creative energy really impacted me. Gafagear and I dated back then and I started trying to keep pace with his artwork aaaaaaaand failed, the quality of my work regressed but it was still fun feeling inspired to draw constantly. Fun times fun times. 

Part of the reason I haven't been around for awhile is because of the falling out that happened with the group and :icongafagear: himself.  I was a wild child and a rebel in my early twenties that was just introduced to the local party scene of Spokane and I decided to throw myself into the nightlife there; it was an attractive outlet for a directionless adult with an expensive/useless art degree and a hurting heart. Some of the things I did that year were done out of outright idiocy, other things were done out of what I thought at the time was love, but well-intentioned or not, they're my choices. My mistakes belong to me and I'm who I am because of them. I learned through that year that I'm in my happy place when I'm with a person I care about and working in the creative field. These are two standards that I strive to commit to, regardless of my environment and the economy.

I know there are people out there reading this who have also been through these things too; being in the creative field can be punishing and thankless. Finding good friends on Deviantart is a way of building your own artist support system to get through the art blocks and the rough times. When you love something, you take the good with the bad, because there's going to be a fudgeton of bad that you'll want to be ready for. If you have people in your life that keep you happy and stabilized, hold onto them. Love them to pieces.

What are your preferred tools to create art?

OH GOD, I wish so badly I could say Cyntiq tabet because I want one SOOOO MUCH. NRNRRRRGGGHHHHH. Right now I use a bamboo wacom tablet that's the meh'est piece of equipment you can imagine. Very Meh. Wow.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

From the toilet. When I'm taken a dump.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

A spelunking rp that I had with :icontartly-sweet: playing Roland, :iconlhumina: playing her butterfree character Hickory, and me playing Regan and :icongafagear: playing his pirate character.  I laughed so hard. It was the most ridiculous thing. I had chest pains later from laughing. I think I still have chest pains from laughing, two years later.
