My name is Kero.

You're right, that's not my actual name. But it's the best one when it comes to contacting me!

If you want to know a whole bunch about me, well, you're best bet is to just talk to me. I always appreciate comments on my work, and I work very hard for what I do. I consider myself a slow moving artist; I don't have the speed a lot of people do, but I pride myself in quality above all.

My main art subjects include dragons, animals, whatever fandom I happen to be following at the time, and science fiction creature design. I'm always looking to expand my horizons and make myself and my art better and better! It's a constant battle, especially considering my life is busy and tumultuous at it's best, and downright impossible at it's worst. (Yech!)

I'm 27 years old but that's subject to change depending on how long it's been since I wrote this!

Growing up is for losers, man.

I'mma draw dragons and animals and whatever else I feel like till I'm dead XP

Also because I think it needs to be addressed:
Dial Up Internet Stamp by KaizokuShojo
Need More Internet by Kelsi-sama
So all y'all with flashy blinking HELL on your page coming to give me a llama and expecting one back? Sorry bro. Can't be done. I appreciate the llamas, but I can try for hours to give one back and it ain't happening, so you cut your own throat there.

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 7, 2015, 3:58 PM


This is also the journal titled (In Which Every Number is One)
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

I HAVE A STORY. long, long, looooonnnnng ago, when the world was still new, and fresh, and exploring thousands of pages of Google was mind of my thing, I was on Elfwood. That's right, I was on ELFWOOD. A wonderful site in and of itself, but the approval process took so long I had often created much newer and better art by the time I could post anything there.

So, in one of my random searches through the galleries of artists I admired, I found a link, and I clicked it, and I was brought here.

Now I didn't think much of it at first. Why did I need another art site when I already had one? Gosh. But I kept coming around back to it. Thinking, putting tons of hard questions to myself about the pros and cons.

Then I joined.

That was almost twelve years ago. My main account, I joined on April 18th, 2004. 

I've been here a long time.

  1. What does your username mean?

Well that depends on which one you're looking at. Crystal-rex is my original name. I refuse to ever change that, and its unique to deviantart for whatever reason. I think it was because at the time, I was big into giving myself animal and color designations. Black Fox is a common name I've kept because I thought black foxes were dark and cool and crafty XD aha crystal Rex was pretty and crystalline and created a kind of badass image, so there you go.

As for 'The Slave', that's actually one of my oldest characters. When I had a long and ill fated stint as a moderator for the BBA (I was really too young to be a mod but c'est la vie.) The name runs far deeper than that, though. I've always wondered, especially in these times, if people would jump the gun and take some kind of offense to it because of the rise in social justice and all that. It has nothing whatsoever to do with that, though. Hah, I'm probably a little weird for quoting the 'Burger Toy' from JTHM, but 'we are all slaves to something'. It's a meaning that struck with me. There is no such thing as true freedom, in a philosophy sense, but in a way freedom is being able to choose your slavery. So that's pretty much where my name here came from.

  1. Describe yourself in three words.

Optimistic, opinionated, silly.

  1. Are you left or right handed?

Right handed! Like almost everyone else on the planet :iconimhappyplz:

  1. What was your first deviation?

In both cases, I put them into storage! Crystal-rex it was a pencil sketch of the character 'the Slave' and on 'The-Slave' it was a picture of an alien in a dress done for a competition I don't want to be associated with anymore *cough*

  1. What is your favourite type of art to create?

Favorite type? Like genre or medium? Pft. I do digital art because its easy. My favorite type of art is actually sculpture, which I never have time for. In both cases, sci-fi and horror with the genre contest.

  1. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

I haven't mastered any to begin with! Gosh deviantart, don't be giving people the idea that you can master anything! You can't! 

Painting, by the way. Digital painting. I want to do it so bad but my brain is blocking my understanding of it somehow.

  1. What was your first favourite?

That was twelve years ago, DA. Twelve years is a long time. Probably something by hibbary though.

  1. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Type? If you looked into my favorites you'd know better. xD its just things I like. I lean towards sci-fi though.

  1. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

*Shakes head* don't have any. Every one changes, people really aren't things to be put on a pedestal. 

  1. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

Hmn. There's a few here and there I wouldn't mind meeting. I don't have very good experiences meeting some 'friends' though so I can be super picky. Safe to say I really love talking to people but I would be super shy about meeting anyone unless I had some kind of safety net like being able to wander off at a Con!

  1. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Well.... I fell in love with one and am moving to be closer to them? Haha, that's pretty big there. But beyond that? I've been here twelve years almost! I've met both the best and worst people in my life here. I've met people I hate to this day, people I love, people that make life fun and people that make me want to rip out my hair before punching them. 

Without deviantart, I would never have grown into the person I am today. That's pretty big, huh?

  1. What are your preferred tools to create art?

Pft. A pencil (mechanical) a scanner, my tablet, and my imagination. A few art programs like SAI and Photoshop might be involved too >>

  1. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

Alone, disconnected from the internet, holed up in a nice quiet room or with music playing. Seems peaceful XP

  1. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

I wish I had any. I don't really. So many good memories turned sour that the recent or oldest ones are the best. First starting here I remember talking with people that liked my art and being amazed. XD and recently joining The-Mais-Pond has been downright amazing and I love everyone there. 

Of course also meeting my boyfriend here XP heh that's amazing, too, but we talk on a different medium. I think the smallest things mean the most though. Everyday comment chains, talking with others, getting to really know them, that means a lot, no matter how it turns out in the end. So that's why we keep on keeping on, to make memories.


The Custom Box of Nothing Here Yet

You may have realized I stored my entire gallery except for one picture. 

6 deviants said All glory to the Hypnotoad.
2 deviants said I may not start posting right away or even soon, but when I do, it will be glorious.
1 deviant said It actually feels pretty good. These things aren't gone, by the way. I just stored them, so I can bring them back at any time I need them.
No deviants said Yeah I did. I'm starting brand new.

I am so sorry you have dial-up. :(
crystal-rex Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I appreciate that XD and sorry for the late reply but BOY has it been a real busy holiday season! Haha but then again, I bet it has for you, too XP
lucid Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
It has. It's all good though. :D

I just can't even remember that speed. I used it til like 2007 or so. It was better than nothing though, so at least you make good use of it (and at least it's still an option... I didn't know that).

Hey dear; I'm finally around after a few years. I was at quite a storybook period in my life- I see your journal header regards commissions so you can move? I'll definitely have to contribute to that my next paycheck. I hope you aren't already booked; but I'll wait of course. ^ ^ Have a nice week, sincerely - C

Umm, can you draw Sky-Blood(… grabs cure blossom(… up by the neck to put her mind at ease that a war is necessary to return warriors to glory?
crystal-rex Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm afraid I can't take any requests right now, sorry! Commissions are a different story, since I'm taking those at current time, but otherwise I have to use my art to save up for moving. Cool character though! I'm liking those blood red wings a lot.
