Kids go back to #school on Thursday...You guys have no idea how #excited I am for that!
I'm having that fear of an armor cosplay I'm making turning out horrible...

Thankfully, the con is in October, so I can pace myself accordingly to construct it. I've finished cutting out the leg pieces; I need to make the upper body pattern.

Step One: Don't compare yourself to the person who bought their entire costume...
If you guys have tried to get on radicalworks.net, you've probably noticed that it's not accessible. Don't panic, I'm not shutting down, I'm in the process of a major overhaul with the server. I'll let you guys know when things are up and running again.
I have to remind myself to make more cold process soap bars; this way, they will be ready by the time the holidays roll around (4-6 weeks to cure).
If you guys are looking for great deals today, shop on Walmart's website. It's like the Steam Summer Sale for household/business products! :D #PrimeDay

Interests
Well, here we go; this will be interesting.

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? Nine years, give or take a couple of months I was simply lurking to look at all the pretty pictures.

  2. What does your username mean? "Cloudpow" is the shortened version of my original username "Cloudpower1000". In the early years of message boards and usernames (read: The Sims message boards and the start of Neopets), I drew a blank on what to call myself. Sitting at the computer desk, I looked outside the window and saw the clouds. Thus, with the influence of Dragon Ball Z power levels, I called myself CloudPower100.

  3. Describe yourself in three words. I would say I'm adventurous; you can't really keep me in one place for very long. Creative is a definite from my own experience, and weird would be the last word to describe me. I take a sense of pride in freaking people out with the things I come up with.

  4. Are you left or right handed? I write with my right hand, but many activities I do usually involve me using both hands for the task. So, if you see me jotting down a quick note with my left hand, it's simply because I've strengthened my use of that hand.

  5. What was your first deviation? And...now here comes the pain. Dethklok in my brain by CloudpowMost of my early submissions were photographs of random things in my life. This photo was taken shortly after I had graduated from high school.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? I create many crafts, so it is sometimes difficult to choose just one. But, fiberart has been the most rewarding as well as the most therapeutic for myself as a person as well as an artist.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? There are many to choose from, but I would certainly love to be more fluent in playing musical instruments; particularly, I would want a master skill in string instruments.

  8. What was your first favourite? Let's see...Wow, it gets really interesting when you're digging through your past on here. sage advice by enolianslaveTo this day, I am a big fan of Jak and Daxter. At the time of this favourite, the games were fresh and the series was still growing with new information and expansions. This piece drew me in, because there is not much information from the childhood/past of Jak and Daxter, other than they grew up together with Samos' never being the type to approve of Daxter's behavior.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? Nowadays, I lean more towards crafts; especially if they pertain to cosplay.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? Rick Boer, :iconrbf-productions-nl:, is an incredible craftsman and quite the gentleman. Though I have never met him personally, I frequent conventions across the southern U.S., and I hope to branch out and travel internationally to see his work in person.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? I would not wish to meet a stranger, so I would love to see my very good friend, :iconphoenixfirecat: again before the end of the year. We typically meet at Dickens on the Strand in December, but I would love to have summer and New Year's visits with her again.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? I cannot name just one person, but meeting and interacting with other craftsmen and artists has opened up my perspective on creations from around the world. That, and I know that even though the U.S. is cutting down on their art programs across the country, I can still travel and find artists going strong in their work.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? Any tool that is durable and doesn't rust. That being said, my tools of trade are sewing machines, knitting needles, bowls, and quite a few power tools and appliances.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? Sitting down and watching people pass me. This is best done at a convention or while staying at a hotel. Sitting in the lobby or outside on a bench can bring a huge wave of ideas to my head as I watch people go on with their lives.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? I enjoy giving friends DeviantArt Premium accounts by surprise, so the best reaction I got from that was when I gave :iconphoenixfirecat: a Premium membership on her birthday without telling her beforehand. Though she was overwhelmed with what she would do with the membership, her sheer happiness from the discovery was very much worth it.

Thanks! There will most certainly be plenty more creations coming from us :) also a practical question. Do we need to claim our points somewhere or do they just appear. We've never had points before so we're a bit bemused :s
