First of all, Happy 15th Birthday dA~!! kaomoji set 2 39/67
It seems like only yesterday I was doing something for the 14th~
Secondly, I'm sorry for being so inactive... kaomoji set 1 10/19 I've been swamped with work and life hasn't been that brilliant lately, which has kinda killed my creative urges a bit.
As a bit of good news, I'm now kind of active on my YouTube channel~! kaomoji set 1 5/19 I'm a bit nervous in the videos, but I'll get better with time.
Also, thank you all so much for 9,000+ pageviews and 75 watchers! kaomoji set 1 9/19 I almost died from happiness when I saw it. kaomoji set 2 41/67 I didn't manage to do anything for 7,500 or 8,000 pageviews so I really want to do something cool for everyone now.
Alright, that's enough about my life, let's get on to the questionnaire!
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    I've been on dA for over 4 years now! I joined on April 24th, 2011, which was exactly 2 months before my own 15th birthday~!

  2. What does your username mean?
    Pretty much exactly what it says kaomoji set 1 6/19<www I wanted a cool name, so I thought "Well, I like art... So why not ArtLover?" Which turned out to be already taken, then I added 5 and 7 (meaning for them to be read "five-seven"). With the logic that since they're a number apart it's unlikely that someone has used that combo. Nobody had, so then I became ArtLover57, and it's kind of become a part of who I am as an artist.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Hmm... Loyal, loving and stubborn~

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    I'm right handed! I can use both, but I didn't train my left as much when I was younger, so I'm not as good with it.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    Oh wow, this is really digging into the depths of my past ww Ahh, according to my gallery, this was my first deviation: Who are weWho are we to say,
    We are close to God?
    Who are we to say,
    We know what death is?
    Who are we to say,
    We know what suffering is?
    Who are we to say,
    We know the workings of this world?
    Who are we to say,
    We know what love is?
    Who are we to say,
    We are the smartest,
    When we know nothing at all?
    Who are we?
    Compared to what's out there,
    In the darkness of the unknown.
    We are small and insignificant,
    Compared to the space that never ends.
    Some say knowledge is a gift.
    But with knowledge comes questions,
    And with questions comes knowledge.
    After a while we begin to doubt,
    That what we know is true.
    I have knowledge,
    And this is my question,
    Who are we,
    To say we know?
    which was uploaded on May 26th, 2011. Btw please ignore the comments of my younger self kaomoji set 1 1/19 I don't know what I was trying so hard to be.

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    I really love printmaking! I miss it so much now that I don't have the resources to do it anymore... Maybe I'll create a studio with my own press when I'm older and have my own place... I used to love the hours I'd spend carving out wood or scratching lines into acetate, the smell and sound of the ink when I rolled it out, the inevitable spots of ink which I'd wear on my fingers like a badge of honor, proof that I'd actually done something that day. And I loved the way you can use paints to add to a print, or use parts from older prints to create something entirely new and wonderful yet still with the same elements. Haa, I really miss it...
    Other than that I really like creating fanart, but I've found it's more of a thing I do when I don't really have a direction to go in. (Photography is also quite fun~)

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Hmm, a realistic or semi-realistic style would be amazing to instantly master~ At the moment I'm very slowly working on a semi-realistic style, so we'll see how that goes.

  8. What was your first favourite?
    According to my faves, my first was~ it mocks me by ajCorza Yes, a stamp. Last year I thought it must have been something to do with Naruto, but apparently not.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Beautiful things by beautiful people~!! kaomoji set 2 21/67 www Usually that ends up being digital fanart, but I love a lot of things~~

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    I have to choose?! Worried Dead Kaomoji Everyone is so wonderful though! Hmm, off the top of my head I really love yuumei, her work and her storytelling style (I'm currently saving up for one of her prints~).

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    I'd love to meet all the friends I've made here on dA, such as Diamond-Drops, AlphonseElricsWife and eriej12 (We haven't talked in ages kaomoji set 2 55/67) along with everyone else that I haven't meet in person. And of whom I'd love to give huge hugs and have an amazing chat with~~ (If anyone happens to be in Wellington, NZ, then contact me!)

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    A few years ago when I meet Diamond-Drops, she introduced me to SAI and into the world of digital art, which really opened a new door and helped me to grow as an artist. Along with that, everyone has helped me so much just by being here. Without dA I don't think I would have gotten through some things in my life, or be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and gradually get through what I'm going through now.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    For digital art I love using SAI to paint or sketch and PhotoshopCS3 to design and photomanipulate along with my beloved Genius tablet. For photography I use my Canon700D, one day I might upgrade, but for now I consider it a brilliant camera~ For traditional art I generally use a mechanical pencil (I find it gets a sharper line), one of my many sketch and notebooks ww and pretty much anything I can get my hands on, be it couloured pencils, pens or paint~

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    It used to be my old, school art room, I really loved that place, it was where I spent most of my time. But now I don't know. In truth, I'm quite lost artistically, I don't really know what I'm doing and I need to find myself again before I can really go anywhere.

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    I really have too many ww My favourites are getting my first fave & comment way back when. Receiving my first llama, giving my first llama, getting my first cake badge, getting my second cake badge! (Thank you so much btw girl-n-herhorse it made me really happy~!) Being asked to be the co-founder of a group. Waking up and checking dA on my birthday to find good wishes, llamas and the occasional cake or deviation dedicated to me. And, of course, the best memories are meeting, talking and getting to know everyone here, especially all my friends on dA. kaomoji set 2 33/67 

Alright, now that the long and sappy stuff is done with, I need to go have dinner. I really hope to be able to talk with everyone again soon~~
And once again, Happy Birthday dA~!!

こんにちはみんなさん~!私の名前はアビゲイルです。どぞよろしくな~
えーと、なんて言えばいいわからない...^^;

Hello everyone~! ^^ For those of you who can't read Japanese I've just introduced myself and said that I don't know what to say... Heheh....

Anyway! My name's Abigail and I'm a 18 year old from New Zealand. I'm currently at Victoria University in Wellington studying a Bachelor of Science. This also means that I'm no longer an art student T^T

Whilst growing up I've developed the mindset that everything in life is a form of art and that there is beauty and wonder in most people and things. Even on the internet I don't have a huge amount of friends nor am I really popular. However I love the few very close friends I do have on and off the net as they mean the world to me and I honestly don't know where I'd be without them.

Before I forget, please take a look at my prints. They are mainly my better photos and are there to hopefully make some money to help fund my time at University.

Also, as you'll see in my stamps, I often take a very very long time to reply even though I do read every single comment/reply/note that I get. It's usually because I get too busy to reply to everyone, or I can't think of what to say so I put it off. For that I really want to apologise in advance... I love talking to people and I feel really bad when I go into my messages and see things from months ago. So I just wanted to warn you and to let you know that I truly am sorry.
:iconstardivider1plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider3plz:
Currently I'm going through my gallery and moving quite a few of my old deviations to scraps. This is because I cringe at some of them and I'm getting the feeling that my gallery is a bit cluttered. Thus please bear with me for a bit. ^u^

I think that's enough text for now. So here's some stamps for you to look at.
