"Not a subject to control, you call upon a higer power
For help and inspiration
(...) Leaning over your fourtieth masterpiece
You must have loved the colour of these violins..."

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
9 years, wow. I was 16 when I made this account and it is literally the only kind of blog I was able to keep updating.

What does your username mean?
Celtic because back then (and till this day, to be quite honest) I was crazy about Riverdance and Irish music; Botan goes after the beloved character from YuYu Hakusho, which I was also crazy about back then. Botan was a shinigami / soul reaper, but lovely and bright in humor and colors (she has baby blue hair and light pink kimono and purple eyes) - she was a happy-go-lucky character with a dark twist to her with her direct connection with death, haha. I kinda identified with her and still do. :XD:

Describe yourself in three words.
Moody, stubborn, loyal.

Are you left or right handed?
Right handed.

What was your first deviation?
Dark Botan by CelticBotan
A Gothic Botan, of course. I was a really dramatic teenager (what am I saying, I am still dramatic).

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Semi-realistic digital art / watercolors, pretty much.

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Probably oil traditional painting - I love the looks but was never able to master the tools, haha.

What was your first favourite?
Will's Worst Nightmare by naturalshocks
"Will's Worst Nightmare", by naturalshocks (back then SheldonSands) - I forgot to mention that, besides Irish folk music and YuYu Hakusho, I was C R A Z Y about Pirates of the Caribbean (specially Dead Man's Chest). I remember this being a ultimate favorite deviation / deviant of mine, and I still hold them dear in my heart :heart:

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
I'm not sure. But ones with really high amount of details and dramatic lighting are the ones that really kick me in the face whenever I see them, and makes me hit the fave button instantly, haha *_*

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Ohhhh man, that's a hard one. But I think I will have to pick more than one (because I am definitely not a "ONE FAVORITE" type of person, and well, because I can, haha) Namie-kun goes on top of the list, for being always so helpful and fun to watch on Livestreams (I miss them a lot!) and for having this artistic vitality I wish I had, always drawing, always making projects and tons of really detailed illustrations for her fanbooks; not to mention she was the one who helped me a lot to master Paint Tool SAI. yuumei , for the most obvious reasons: she absolutely kicks ass, period; and TamberElla of course! Her animal anatomy skills in her illustrations are to die for. :love:

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Oh, definitely Namie-kun ! Exchanging art knowledge and goofing around, I'd love that :XD:

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
prialanis (who also happens to be a real-life friend of mine) helped me and still do in so many ways I can't even begin explaining and thanking her for. 
She is absolutely a huge part of my life <3 :blowkiss: Love you, silly girl!

I believe raqsonu too impacted me a lot when I met him back in 2009 - never forget how impressed I was (and still am) with his skills and work *_* I improved a lot with his help and only by watching him here on dA.

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Paint Tool SAI (I hate Photoshop more and more by the day, to be quite honest @__@ THere is no way I can use that to paint anything, only to give final touches and effects on my illustrations), Wacom Bamboo Pen, colorful ballpoint pens and Sakura Waterclors on thick, good watercolor canson paper <3 <3

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
My room, with my music - I am no one without them.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I believe getting my first comments and faves =) Those were the good times, haha <3

I've been thinking of creating a Patreon page, with small pledges (like, 1$, 2$, 5$, 10$, for example) and setting small goals (like goals of 25$ and 50$, for example). Rewards and goal prizes would include prints of original art made by me sent to Patrons, commented walkthrough videos, narrated tutorial videos, access to full WIP shots and sketches and such.

I've been thinking a lot about it and I think the exchange of experience and talking to people might be refreshing and good for both me as a person and as an artist!

What do y'all think of it? =) Please tell me your opinion in the comments!!

Queen of Peace by CelticBotan
Queen of Peace
"Like the stars chase the sun
Over the glowing hill, I will conquer
Blood is running deep
Some things never sleep"

("Queen of Peace", by Florence + The Machine)

Piece based on Florence Welch's new album, "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" - specially on the song "Queen of Peace". The pose and the birds were heavily inspired on Within Temptation's cover of the album "The Heart of Everything", though haha :heart: Missed doing WT/ Flo crossovers xD 

TOOLS:
Paint Tool SAI | Wacom Bamboo PEN | Photoshop CS6
