EDIT: There are a few other people I want to mention who I didn't get a chance to give a shout-out to when my first draft went through - my internet was doing weird things and I had to type out the questionnaire several times, so I missed some deviants who mean a lot to me. I haven't had much time to edit it since then, but now I do! Hopefully I don't miss out anyone else in this edit, but apologies if I do, I'm sure you know who you are! These are all lovely people and they mean a lot to me. In no particular order:

first is :iconbubblewrap-pancakes: who I've known for a long time. Although we don't talk much now (hell, I don't even know if you're still on DA!) you were the first person to take much of an interest in my art and one my earliest real friends on the site, so this one's for you!

:iconblackdragon07: is a good friend of mine who has always been supportive of me and who I talk to about life in general as well as art. I appreciate the time we spend talking and you always know where to find me if you need me :D

:iconsketchmatt: It's been a while, I hope things are going well for you! We've spent a lot of time chatting in the past and whenever you get time to visit the site, look me up and tell we how you're doing :aww:

:iconchronoslantern: is like my little sis and we have so much in common - we like a lot of the same art styles, games and fandoms. She has a lovely gallery too, she's very talented! Thank you for being you and keep doing just that.

:iconemrasa: is another DA member I've known a long time! Thank you for your support and friendship. You're probably still in Japan now, I bet you're having a great time! Can't wait to see any photos you've took and catch up when you get back :la:

:iconwinged-wasabi: thanks so much for your support of my art and for being a friend! I know we don't get to chat much just recently, but I hope you know I'm always around if you get the time or need anything.

:icondeviousdoughnut: is a good friend, also one of the people I've known longest on this site. We need to catch up when you get back, I hope you're doing good and life is treating you well.

There are so many people I could mention and so many people past and present who mean a lot to me but I'd be here all day to mention them all by name - just know if you're a friend, this honorable mention also goes out to you! Sorry this took an edit to shout out to you!


DA is another year older, so to celebrate, here's a questionnaire. That's what everyone wants for their birthday, right?
RIGHT?
:stare:

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Technically nine years, though I wasn't constantly active for the first year or so.

2. What does your username mean?
When a video game boss has more than one form (less common these days, but the concept still exists in both games and some anime - I'm looking at you, DBZ!) the last and strongest form is called the 'true form' so it's a corruption of that.

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Imaginitive, Open and Friendly (I hope!)

4. Are you left or right handed?
I'm a righty.

5. What was your first deviation?
This stunner.
Sally by Trueform
She was created for an art project on genetic modification. She's a doll's head turned inside out. I call her Sally, and she may have a face for radio but she's beautiful on the inside. Well, she ate someone beautiful once. That counts, right?

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
I love anime and Manga art, it's just so pretty.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Can't I master them all with my magic wand? If I could only choose one, I'd be tempted to go for a musical talent since I don't have any of that to begin with, but since drawing has always been my passion, I've have to choose a quasi-realistic manga style. Maybe one day I'll reach that goal!

8. What was your first favourite?
Over 9 years? Damned if I remember!

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I appreciate art in many different forms, though recently it would be Cosplay. Seeing fictional characters come to life is beautiful.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I couldn't possibly just pick one. I will say, though, that design is just as important as art skill to me.

11. If you could meet anyone from DevianArt in person, who would it be?
There are two people I would like to meet in real life. My long-distance friend of many a year :iconquirkybrainiac: since we'd have a lot of catching up to do, and my recent friend :iconacciopumpkin: since I know we'd have fun!

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted upon your life?
There are several. :iconmightyplue: is a good friend of mine who sadly passed away. We never got the chance to meet in real life, but he was always optimistic, passionate about his life and art and was always pushing himself to become a better artist. Those are ideals that I would like to keep alive.

:iconquirkybrainiac: has always been supportive of me, both in my art and life in general. She's always been there to lend an opinion or a thought and it means a lot to me, so I thought she deserves a shout-out here.

As mentioned, I met :iconacciopumpkin: recently and she has also been very supportive of my art. She is also a great example of how to be yourself without letting others get to you. I present you with one internet!

Last but not least is :iconshono: who is a friendly and approachable artist which unfortunately can be hard to find sometimes. Having time to answer comments and talk to others even when you seem so busy is admirable qualities, so definitely check out his gallery and webcomic! He also has an inspirational motto.

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
I draw traditionally, then scan the art into Paint.NET and use a mouse. I should really upgrade to a tablet one of these days!

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
I always work at my computer desktop with either youtube or Itunes nearby ready to fill me with inspirational music.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Probably the Fakemon (Fan-made Pokemon) boom a couple of years ago, when there were so many new and inventive artists coming onto the scene and loads of contests flying around. There are still some great artists in the ocmmunity now, but maybe I just remember that time most since I made a lot of new friends then.
Morrigan Aensland by Trueform
Morrigan Aensland
Just a sketch of Morrigan from Darkstalkers. Love her design, I'm not particularly for overly sexualized characters out of context, but it works with Succubus. Succubus are cool.

Trueform's Profile Picture

I am Groot.

Beings as I seem to necessitate some instruction before use, I present to you:

TRUEFORM FOR DUMMIES!

This is handy guide will feature all you need to know about the etiquette in dealing with the non-complexity that is me. I may add to this in the future as needed and it will be handily posted up on my profile as a 'pocket guide' if you will. Now without further ado, let's begin.
------------------------------------------------------
DO UNTO OTHERS
If we watch each other, please don't ask or expect me to comment on your work if you're not willing to do the same for me. Support works both ways, and if you're not willing to take the time to comment on my work, why I should do so for you?

GIFTS FROM ME ARE NOT AN OBLIGATION
I don't make gifts often because I don't have a lot of time and my personal work takes priority. When I do make them, I don't want to feel pressured or rushed into it so please don't hassle me about it; a gift isn't a commission, it's done on my own time and out of kindness. Most people are fine with that and are very patient, so thank you to everyone who is. For those of you who aren't patient, I will either stop making the gift altogether or drop it to the end of my VERY long to-do list, especially after I took the time to write the journal explaining WHY I sometimes have trouble submitting art.

DON'T MISTAKE ME FOR A DOORMAT
I am a very patient person and I try to be as easy-going and kind as I can be; as such, some people see these traits and mark them down as docility. That is a mistake. Treat me how you want to be treated yourself and if you act offensively or rudely, you will be treated the same way.

READ MY JOURNALS
If they're about my personal life, I will always put up a quick version for casual watchers who are only interested in my artwork and a longer version for those interested in me as a person. I only write journals when I have something to say, so if it's been posted, it's been posted for a reason.

Thank you all for listening. I am bluntly honest, so if there's an issue you're concerned with, feel free to contact me directly. The issues mentioned here

ARE NOT AIMED AT ANY ONE PERSON.

They are issues that have been brought up frequently by several people and that is why I have made the journal, otherwise I would have just told you personally rather than making it public.

If you've been affected by any of the topics touched upon in this 'For Dummies' guide, please contact me on the number below.

It's a pleasure :aww: it's quality over quantity, I'd rather look through a gallery with less submissions but more quality ones than trawl through a large gallery with some almost identical photos or poorly shot pics. Same with the cosplay aspect - lots of cosplay doesn't really mean as much if the care they are given suffers for it :)
