I was travelling when the questionnaire was posted so I couldn't do it back then, so I'll do it now!

     


1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

11 years…(how did that happen??)

2. What does your username mean?

Nothing really…but it’s based on my old Gaiaonline username (feel free to laugh) ”Kajo” which means ”glow” or ”glimmer” in Finnish. I wanted to use the name on other sites too, like Livejournal, but the username was already taken so it became ”Kajoi” because it sounded nice, and it has been my artist username ever since. 


3. Describe yourself in three words.

lazy, melancholic, dreamer


4. Are you left or right handed?
Right

5. What was your first deviation?

it’s not available anymore, I think I deleted it at some point...but I think it was something made with Photoshop Elements when I didn't even know how to use layers or anything!


6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Illustrations that take a long time to create. I prefer working many hours on one work instead of completing really many works quickly

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

Classical realism, that’d be useful!


8. What was your first favourite?

Some work by mero-ix (in her old account) but it's in storage currently :/


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

Beautiful faces, cold color themes, dark themes, ”quirky” works


10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Only one?? uhhh maybe mynameistran in that case!


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

I really don’t know, I haven’t really communicated with the artists here lately that much >_>


12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

I think the impact was biggest when I had just joined DA, and when I was still just a beginner (I was also very young back then, only 15)...I think seeing many works every day helped me to understand art better, and at the same time, it helped me develop my own style and also improve. I joined in 2004, and already in 2005, my art was nothing like it was one year before. 


13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Digital tools. (I do miss traditional painting though, I should try it again sometime…)


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

I always create art in the same place; in my room, at my desk...but I do get most of my ideas in my bed, haha


15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Hmm...I once set up a Christmas card exchange, and I promised to draw small cards for EVERYONE...maybe that was a mistake, because I had to draw card all the time, everywhere, especially during boring lectures XD but I got tons of cards and drawings in exchange, too, so it was fun to check the mail box every day!

Goodbye 2014, I'm not going to miss you too much! Not everything was crap, but a lot was.
I decided to have rather modest New Year's resolutions this time, since I always seem to fail them.. I'm in ur post! Shakin mah fish! 

So, in 2015, my art resolutions are:

Bullet; Purple Draw more smaller images, not everything has to be super planned and polished. Just.draw.MORE.
Bullet; Purple Finish the script (or at least some of it) for my comic. I have already resigned myself that this project will move at a snail's pace, so getting at least something done is good. I guess I'm trying to think here that if there's not too much pressure, maybe I'll end up doing more than planned....?

aaaand then I have one final resolution that I have to get done anyway because my time is running out:

Bullet; Purple Finish my master's thesis.

That's it.

Do you guys have any resolutions for 2015? :0

Red Spider Lily by kajoi
Red Spider Lily
I took part in the NBC Hannibal fan artbook "Field Kabuki", and we were finally allowed to post our works!

The red spider lily, or higanbana as the Japanese call it, is probably familiar to those who are manga/anime fans (looking at Tokyo Ghoul), since it's often included to symbolize death and loss. These were the flowers that welcomed me some years back when I arrived in Japan for my exchange studies. They are one of my favourite flowers, and I thought using them in my work was rather fitting, especially since the theme of the artbook was Japan (as was the food theme of season 2). 

Also, they look a little bit like guts B)

I'm still very sad the show got cancelled, but not all hope is lost yet, resurrecting cancelled shows these days is not impossible, it just may take some time with Hannibal (there has also been some talks about a possible movie, if nothing else!)

Brahmaea hearseyi
I didn’t know what to paint, but something with insects is always a safe choice for me. The title is the name of the moth species I used for the work (though they don't look exactly like that, I tweaked the wing patterns a bit)

Mushi by kajoi
Mushi

”in this world every person and place has a right to exist. It’s true for you, too.

The entire world as a whole is your home.”

Mushishi is one of my favourite anime series, and it got a second season last year after 9 years of waiting, so here’s something to celebrate it a bit belatedly.

The Moon Pendant by kajoi
The Moon Pendant
Wow, I haven't painted a fantasy picture like this in ages...mostly because at some point I decided that is not a direction I want to pursue anymore. However, somehow I got the chance to illustrate a fantasy book cover, and this is the result. (Well, an alternative version anyway, the original has a bit different colors, perhaps more natural too. I just wanted to have a different kind of feeling with this version.)

Oh, and in case it's not clear, the sceneries on the background are not what you'd actually see from the windows.

I like color combinations more than any separate color, I think...but if I had to choose, it would be blue (cool, not warm)
