How long have you been on DeviantArt?
As of this post,8 years

What does your username mean?
It's basically combining 2 philosophies,Daoism and Zen Buddhism.Both have many differences,but a few similarities.I've been a follower of duality all my life.To me,everything has balance and am essentially seeking enlightenment and understanding.My original username was Ravenwater,meaning to discover the pro's and cons of immortality,mostly near the negative aspect of it.I changed it to the name I have now because I wanted to grow more physically and psychologically.

Describe yourself in three words.
Complex,mysterious,and wise.

Are you left or right handed?
Right handed.I tried to be ambidextrous,but it was harder than I thought.

What was your first deviation?
My first deviation on this site was July Cross.It was dedicated to my best friend Julio Cruz.We've been friends since September 1998,and have remained in touch to this day.

What is your favourite type of art to create?
It depends on my mood.Sometimes I write and sometimes I draw.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
That's a tough one.I can't think of any per se.I'd wish to master all of it,but it's near impossible for me.

What was your first favorite?
Wait here or anywhere?If here,I'd say a poem.

What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
Just anything that catches my attention.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
RavenSpider ,Malintra-Shadowmoon ,Artz1stLady.

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Either RavenSpider or Malintra-Shadowmoon .Both of them are very talented women.Their art is fascinating.

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Depends on the deviant.It can be good or bad,hard to tell.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
My brain,gel pens and crayola markers,crayons,colored pencils,anything that can spark an idea.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Don't have one.Too many to choose from.I do get inspired by music though.

What is your favorite DeviantArt memory? 
Again,don't have any favorites.But if one,probably getting a little more attention from others.Don't know the exact date,but it was nice to feel a little important.

Spent 5 days in the hospital cause of my gallbladder.Spent 3 days starving while being treated,until they finally removed my gallbladder.No more gallstone attacks.I'm finally free.Downside is I'm gonna have to recover and miss a week or 2 of work.But everything's gonna be okay.

Things are looking up.I'm finally getting a job again at Safeway,the divorce matter is running smoothly(and possibly running in my favor),and am finally getting my life back on track.I'm feeling much better than last month's journal post.I want to thank everyone that's been there for me and haven't given up on me,you've given me strength to continue living in this world.Extra thanks goes to RavenSpider and Malintra-Shadowmoon,couldn't have done it without you two.As for my art,I'm continuously working on it,trying my best to make it more interesting and less perfectionist.

As I write this,I keep thinking to myself,"What the hell am I doing with my life"?I'm currently 27,unemployed,living with my folks,with no insurance,haven't finalized the divorce and gotten my stuff back.How am I still alive?Why do I always let myself be lazy and unfocused?Where did my courage and strength go?My mind racing with thoughts from the both sides of my psyche.

Symmetry,(dressed as an angelic mime),giving me hope,joy,and reason to live,telling me only I can do something with my life,something that has meaning and purpose.Serenity,honesty,love,and gratitude having an insightful conversation to broadcast order in my mind.Logic and reason keeping it altogether.

Anomaly,(dressed as Mr.Rogers in a devil suit),showing me the darkness that resides inside me,deception coursing through my veins.Rage not just bottled up in my mind,but locked in a padded room scratching at the walls,spreading its anguish through the cracks throughout my body.A plague of bedlam,anger becoming sorrow becoming fear becoming hatred becoming pain and never stopping.

So far,all I've done is try to apply for Covered California and be rejected,go out to a shopping mall to look at things I can't afford,read graphic novels(right now The Sandman from Vertigo)to enlighten my soul,go to a cafe to play board games with strangers,and lay around the house in the backroom sleeping or watching TV or fondling with my phone.Not making any effort to get my act together yet still exist in a world of magical denial and tangible evil to fill in a void of confusion.

I had to get that out of my system.I don't expect anyone to reply back.Just posting this helps relieve the agony.
