Zenosyne (or The Art Curator)Well this Monet piece is obviously a fake.”Zenosyne (or The Art Curator) by Mahersal
Startled, I turned toward the voice. An old man snuck up next to me to also admire the painting. He had thick plastic glasses that hid his eyes and a scraggily beard with severe looking muttonchops. Lines of age and laughter and something else covered his face. He looked more like an ancient hobo than an art expert, but who am I to judge?
“How can you tell?”
He grinned; I counted nine teeth. “Because the real one uses more blue.” He lifted a liver spotted hand and pointed at a patch of lily pads. “These are too green. But it’s a good attempt.” He closed his eyes and sighed. “If they are going to put something in a museum, they should know if it’s real or not. What ignorant bastards. What fools! Pah!”
I looked at the fake Monet again before fully turning toward the man. “Why don’t you just tell the museum they’ve displayed a fake?”
He warbled, a raspy sou
Hey, everyone! I'm Maggie!
I'm a 21-year-old college senior with a Communication major and an English Literature minor. Art is a hobby of mine, but I hope to be a published author one day. Hopefully in the very near future.
I love lighthouses, cats, boats, books, and being spastic fangirl over many, many different fandoms. Basically if I have fanart, I like it. If I don't, it's because I don't feel compelled enough to draw some or I feel I can't articulate my love for it in the best possible way.
Make sure to look through my scraps for sketches too! Who knows? I might digitize them in the future.
In short, I'm hyper, sunny, a spaz, happy, and awesome.
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Five years, but I didn't start being active until 2 months after I signed up.
What does your username mean?
Mahersal originated when I mispronounced "rehearsal" as a three-year-old. The word stuck and it became the name of my imaginary cat friend, 2 cat stuffed animals, and an actual cat. I like it because it's easy to pronounce and just unique, despite the fact it took me forever to realize it should be my online handle.
Describe yourself in three words.
Sunny, loud, and unpredictable
Are you left or right handed?
What was your first deviation?
Oh geez, five years is a long time and I've probably deleted it at this point. My guess is it was YGO related since I was hugely involved with it when I first joined.
What is your favourite type of art to create?
Chibis! They're cute, fun, and I've mastered the art of sketching them quickly. I also really like flow-y hair, but I get intimidated by the details so I don't draw it as much.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
REALISM GOD HELP ME I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO DRAW REALISM.
What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Fanart. I'm a sucker for fanart and I don't care.
Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Oh man that's a hard question. It's a tossup between yuumei and VivzMind. Both of their styles are very distinct. Yuumei's colors and sense of space just astounds me,
but I've always loved Vivz's characters and her bravery when it comes to testing line.
(In very close third place is Rivan145th because I love her facial expressions and her YGO art is to die for.)
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
DaAmazingMeepers and Midnightscreamer101!!! Two great friends I met on Fanfiction and cultured our friendship over here. I just might die if I ever got the chance to meet either of them.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
I can't name any specific deviant (besides the two obvious ones above), but there are moments when I've had conversations with people or people have commented on my art that just makes my heart warm and fuzzy.
What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pastels, but I haven't used them in forever. I really love my Wacom tablet too!
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Back in high school the art house was just full of inspiration. Now it's not where I am, but my mood and the environment.
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
That one time I got 100 pageviews in one day. That was awesome.
