DeviantArtist Questionnaire

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 10:44 AM

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?  Shark 8-)  I joined DeviantArt about 5 years ago at the urging of my talented daughter, Phoenix67 

  2. What does your username mean?  Shark 8-)  I get asked that a lot.  The shark reference goes back to my previous career as a manager of personnel.  We were heading to Las Vegas for a business meeting and were told to create gambler nicknames for ourselves.  Since I live near Santa Cruz on the coast of California I naturally thought of sharks, and a card shark makes reference to someone who gambles.  The nickname has followed me for almost 20 years now.

  3. Describe yourself in three words.  Shark 8-)  Loyal, logical, and super-awesome.

  4. Are you left or right handed?  Right.

  5. What was your first deviation?  Shark 8-)  This is a perfect opportunity to show you . . . U.S. Pavilion in Spokane, WA by SharkHarrington  It's a lovely photograph, don't you think?

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?  Shark 8-)  I'm a photographer, first and foremost.  I also like to draw, but you'll probably never see my work on dA.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?  Shark 8-)  I am amazed by the talents of the digital artists I see everyday.  I would love to wake up tomorrow morning, a talented digital artist.

  8. What was your first favourite?  Shark 8-)  Again, let me show you . . . A Moment Suspended In Time by xMEGALOPOLISx  The photograph belongs to :iconxmegalopolisx:  I think it is incredible;  with 32,365 :+fav:s at this writing, a lot of people appear to agree with me.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?  Shark 8-)  Most of my favorites are in the photography category.  I look for images that inspire me to do similar things.  I'm primarily known for my work with motorsports and car photography, but no subject is beyond my interest.  I'm interested in everything.  Curbside Cool by SharkHarrington

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?  Shark 8-)  That is an impossible question for me to answer.  There are people I look up to because of their talent, for example:  :iconswanee3: :iconxeneras: :iconpapaninja: :iconalexisgoure: :icontrichardsen: :iconmordsithcara:  Then there are the people that I would like to hang with and have a little party, because they are cool and we'd have lots to talk about:  :icon914four: :iconpjs1998: :iconenigma-fotos: :iconhankypanky68: :iconattila-le-ain: :iconstalliondesigns: :iconjoerayphoto:

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?  Shark 8-)  I would love to meet :iconmetal-goddess: and her husband.  She lives halfway around the world so it will probably never happen.  We've been dA buddies for five years now.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?  Shark 8-)  You can meet some very cool people on dA.  A few years ago I made contact with a talented photographer named James :iconjrsfoto:  We met at a NASCAR event and later worked together on several glamour projects together.  He's a fun personality, high-energy, and creative.  I learned a lot from him about working on location and using studio lighting.  Hopefully we will do something new in the near future.  Here is the most popular photo in my gallery from our work with :iconmisslaurelle:  A Stolen Glance by SharkHarrington

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?  Shark 8-)  I work with Nikon digital SLRs.  I carry a D7100 and a D90.  Both cameras have crop sensors, they give me an advantage when shooting sports so I can get closer to the action.  I don't have the advantage of carrying media credentials most of the time so I have to get creative to get my shots while the "pros" get the best access.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?  Shark 8-)  I get fired up when the subject is unique - that can happen any place at any time.  Please keep the gum on the walls . . . by SharkHarrington

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?  Shark 8-)  My favorite memories come from people who comment on my work and are genuine with their words.  I appreciate people's feedback.  I leave a comment with every fave I collect, that's my personal code of conduct.  :peace:
