Most Inspirational Pieces

Other deviants' work I've collected over the years that has left an impression on me.




Indigo Sunday by TGA-TsurugiWahh forgot to let you guys know 11 x 14" "Indigo Sunday" posters are available at for the first time ever!
Highway Unicorn by TGA-Tsurugi My fanart of Lady Gaga, "Highway Unicorn" is now available as a 13 x 19" poster at !


Hey guys! In celebration of DEVIANTART'S 15TH BIRTHDAY :party: I thought I'd do the questionnaire!! 

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
9 years or so! ^^; I had an old account that was banned because I was under 13! :lmao:

What does your username mean?

Oh how embarrassing :giggle: I made it up when I was ten and I played a Lord of the Rings MMORPG. In the game, people could create tribes and I was part of one called "The Grand Alliance" and we had to tag our tribes at the beginning of our names. So I kept the TGA tag and my username was Tsurugi, which meant sword. And it just sort of stuck ^^;

Describe yourself in three words.

Force of Nature

Are you left or right handed?


What was your first deviation?

THe Dream Catcher by TGA-Tsurugii

Here it is! Seriously guys please do not look too deep into that first account...I was like 10 ;__;

What is your favourite type of art to create?

Art that moves people or surprises them! Can be anything...although I'm pretty sure you guys know what I prefer by now. x) I love to draw.

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

Realism / perspective or surrealism of some sort...I know those are all vastly different lol but I admire them all the same and think they're inform my work pretty well. Surrealists have really interested me lately *_* their process, Dali waking up mid-REM sleep to paint or write ideas down. Fascinates me as I get older and am losing creativity! >_<

What was your first favourite?

oh boy let's see. Well, of course it was some panty shot thing my mom saw me accidentally favorite that I couldn't figure out how to remove :lmao:

2tomoe by WittA

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

Whatever provokes / inspires me! I love anything with a thoughtful design sense and a concept that hits home.

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Probably Toosan because he was my first favorite artist here x)

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

Well it's been great meeting everyone I have at cons and I've definitely met some dream artists and friends recently. He's one of the only ones still left on my long list haha. Him and Artgerm oh what a dream. 

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

The whole community has impacted my life so much. There is so much support here, I probably wouldn't have the burning fire in my belly that I still do if it weren't for all the artists here inspiring and sharing things with each other. DA truly pushed me to another level.

What are your preferred tools to create art?

Copics. If I ain't got 'em, it ain't happenin'. I guess I'm ok with a pencil too '''x))

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

ALONE. Somewhere where I can lose control. I tend to dance like a crazy person while creating art. It's an exorcism of sorts.

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

I absolutely love my chat memories. All the memories meeting people in chatrooms here, back in #AnimeLovers when it was still a chatroom. So much fun and so many people would pop in there. I had such funny conversations and some very secret stupid things I did with friends that were just hilarious :lmao:


So there it is!!! Happy birthday DeviantArt!!!
