Staff Appreciation Interview: @sine-outFor Staff Appreciation Day (Oct. 16th) I've done a series of Interviews with several members of dA staff. I hope you all enjoy!Staff Appreciation Interview: @sine-out by breaking-reality
Interview with sine-out.
1. How did you come up with your deviantART nickname?
Well, around the time I joined I was learning about sine waves in both my physics and maths classes in college (not that weird American College, though), couple that with my sometimes unenviable talent for creating bad puns and there you have it.
2. What is your role on deviantART and what do you enjoy most about it?
I work as a Message Network Administrator (MN@ in cool speak), basically, this means I wander around the forums and lock threads that break the rules, and I also spend a not inconsiderable amount of time on dAmn, where I enforce the rules of the chat network (and the site in general, naturally).
I most enjoy the social aspect of the role, in particular the 'staff room' shenanigans.
3. How did you find out about deviantART and what made you decide to join?
I first h
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Way too long - 11 years.
What does your username mean?
At the time I started using it, I was a huge Inu-Yasha fan. That's really about it.
Describe yourself in three words.
Software knitting nerd.
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
I don't remember, but it's not actually the one that shows as oldest in my gallery. It was a terrible photo-manipulation of some type.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Artisan Crafts > Knitting
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
What wouldn't I want to learn?
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I don't actually have one.
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I've already met quite a few deviants in person. Basically, anyone I've interacted with regularly is someone I'd like to meet.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
There are a few deviants who have impacted my life; some of my best friends I met through dA. I'm going to pick on Zeros-Elipticus, though. I've known Elliott since I was 16 or 17, so that's about ten years. I think I was 19 when I first met him in person. His parents let him bring home a totally strange girl to stay with them for a week. We had tons of fun. We (accidentally) got his car towed. There have been a few times where we didn't talk much because we were busy with school or work or whatever, but it has never affected how close we are.
Then, on 1 Aug, I was one of his grooms-people. I totally cried during the wedding when he was reading his vows to his wife. The two of them are an absolutely wonderful couple and I love them both.
And, if not for him, I never would have joined OkC, where I met my husband.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Wood or steel knitting needles. Soft yarn.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Er... I don't have one.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Getting my ass saved by switchbladeserenade when she showed up the first devMeet I planned. I had no idea what I was doing.
