so, seeing like basically everyone is doing it, I will fill out the deviant questionaire as well
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
since 2011, thats 4 years......damn, cant belive it really has been for years already, time really goes faster and faster the older you get
What does your username mean?
...yeah.... I kinda regret using that name. Teratophoneus is the name of a comparatively small tyrannosaur, a pretty cool animal, but if you type in that name on google, the whole page is spammed by pics from me , I didnt really had that in mind when I decided to use that name, sorry folks XD.
From the start, I always wanted to have a the name of a dinosaur as part of my account name, preforably Tyrannosaurus, but that wasnt availabe so i chose another Tyrannosaur instead.
Describe youself in three words.
Gosh, thats hard...uhm...well... I would say... crazy, funny and (for the ladies) single (sorry I just had to XD)
Are you right of left handed?
Hah, to answer this i have to tell you a story. I was born left handed, but at that time there was that rumour that left handed children think different(in an too complicated way, not politicaly or anything like that) and right handed would have more advantages, i cant remember it really, so my grandparents basically educated me to do stuff with my right hand. In the end I am very glad they did or I might not have my art style. While I draw and write with the right hand, I throw stuff with my left, so i actually use both hands for different purposes.
What was your first deviation?
wow, I´ll have to check that ...
Its actually this one here
Back in the old days, when I still had my graphite stick , used no scnnaer, drew dinosaurs with pronated hands and absurd proportions.....
What is your favorite type of art to create?
Lol, easily palaeo art, I love doing that, although I also enjoy the art of drawing cryptid animals and drawing machines from time to time, but the main focus lies on Palaeo art If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Definetely Digital art, I mean the sort of stuff digital palaeo artists can create is just amazing, i would love to do sth like that.
What was your first favourite?
wow, again I need to check...
Wow, its this one
from Hodari Nunduhodarinundu.deviantart.com/ What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
While I usually fav Paleo art, there are 2 or 3 other art styles I also favourite quite frequenty
1. Model kits, as I am also an experienced modeller, i love to see what other people do with model kits
2. cryptozoology related art, I am a big fan of cryptozoology, its really fascinating and interesting and the art some people produce of that are absolutely astonishing
3. From time to time photography, but only from aircraft, tanks and sportscars, since I am a really big fan of those.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
There definetely isnt just one, there are several artists I like for differnt reasons, some for their detail, some for their atmosphere and some for their ideas. Here are some of them tuomaskoivurinne.deviantart.co…
for his amazing depictions of ceratopsid dinosaurs hodarinundu.deviantart.com/
for his amazing ideas he has with extinct animals and his own very special art style that I really enjoy and was one of the reasons i decided to got to deviantart hyrotrioskjan.deviantart.com/
for a whole bunch of reasons, he is a good friend, he has also collborated with me somtimes(sth I alway enjoy) and he also is an amazing artist, not only in the field of palaeontology but also speculative evolution and stuff like that! romanyevseyev.deviantart.com/
For his absulutely stunning and extremely realistic pics of Extinct prehsitoric mammals, noone comes close to making sabre toothed cats look as realistic as he does in my opinion. t-pekc.deviantart.com/
He is just a very talented artist, i really enjoy his black and white drawing of dinosaurs, especially the recent tyrannosaurs he did are a highlight olorotitan.deviantart.com/Some
of the most amazing and beautiful lookin digital painted dinosaurs come from him, the atmosphere he puts in these pics is just stunning and the amount of detail is just ridiculous(in a postive way)! atrox1.deviantart.com/
He has to be the most patient painter I ever have seen. His pics are just astonishing, very lifelike, and while they often look digitally painted they are actually drawn with real colour and brushes, i cant imagine how long it takes him to do one of his great pictures, it still is a miracle to me, because his art is really special.hellraptor.deviantart.com/
If there is anyone who´s like me here on DeviantArt, its Hellraptor. Mate, you are awesome. He is just as big a Jurassic Park fan as I am, and his very very special art style is really cool. I am very glad that you are my friend
You basically have to know that there are two groups of Dinosaur enthusiasts (at least in my opinion). The ones that absulutely love Jurassic Park and belive everything it says and then the guys that hate Jurassic park for everything it stands for(non featheres dinosaurs and stuff). Hellraptor and I are sth in between of that. I am a massive Jurassic park lover, I really really love that franchise but I know its inaccuracies, i accept its inaccurate in some ways but I still enjoy it, and I still draw dinosaurs the accurate way (or at least try it). Thats the reason I get along with Hellraptor that well, because he thinks a lot like me when it comes to jurassic park (at least thats what i expereinced). paleo-king.deviantart.com/
He produces some of the most accurate palaeo art to date, and if anyone here is a perfectionist, then its PaleoKing, his sauropods are amazing and without him i wouldnt be able to draw sauropods as accurate as i draw em nowadays. He really is an amazing artist. whn it comes to sauropods, he´s the man, he basically taught me everything I needed to know about drawing sauropods accurately! scotthartman.deviantart.com/
when it comes to skeletal reconstructions, scott Hartman is the man! His amazing skeletals help me, and a whole buch of other palaeoartists, to accurately reconstrcut prehsitoric animals. julio-lacerda.deviantart.com/
He produces really cool atmospheric pitures of prehsitoric animals, they look very very lifelike, I really enjoy his artstyle and I am always hyped when he uploads sth new!dontknowwhattodraw94.deviantar…
he definetely deserves more fame as he is a really talented artist. I really like your pics, the things you cna do with simple coloured pencils is just amazing!sharkeytrike.deviantart.com/
Last but not least, Steve White, the man who started it all. This guy was my inspiration to start drawing dinosaurs. everything I am in terms of beeing a dinosaur artist, is thanks to him. In 1993 there was a series of dinosaur magazines. As I was born 1994, i only had the chance to get these magazines much much later and still own them. In the middle of the magazine was always a 3d pic that was originally painted black and white. These pics were done by him. these pics were absilutely amazing, highly detailed, shwoing dinosaurs in motion, in different environemnts and situations, I remeber as a kid beeing fascinated with these pics,lookin at them for hours and wondering who the man behind them was, until I got the magazine where the artist was spotlighted, his name was Steve White. Over the years i searched and searched for him on the internt, lookin for more pics by him but couldnt find anything....that was until I found him on Deviant art. It was basically a dream come true, writing to the man I owe my love for drawing dinosaurs, I am really happy to finally had the chance writing to him and if you read this Steve, I wanna thank you so much for giving me so much inspiration!
*hope I ddint forget anyone*....... If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I mean I would like to meet all of the artists mentioned above but if I really had to choose 3 or 4 of them it would be these
Because he´s a good friend, a great artist, and in order to meet him I wouldnt have to book a flight to another country XD
Spaß beiseite, vielleicht trifft man sich eines tages ja mal
Dude, I would love to meet you and basically talk a whole day over jurassic Park and stuff
I would really like to thank him in person for all the inspiration he gave me How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
A good Question. There are 2 special deviants, that deserve mentioning here:
For reasons stated above
For helping me substantially in how to draw sauropods correctly
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencils, mechanical pencils that is, athough recently I also started colouring my regular pictures with coloured pencils from time to time.
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
well the place where i get the most inspiration of is definetely the internet, mostyl DeviantArt itself.
In terms of where I feel most comfortable drawing , that would be my room and my bed on which i draw my pictures
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
There are a couple of great memorys, the first deviation, the first friends but out of all of tehm 2 come to my mind, both are quite recent
The Jurassic world pic i did which got over 500 favs which is more than double the amount I get when usually uploading a picture.
And getting 1k whatchers which is just astounding and really means a lot to me, seeing that so many enjoy my art!
