Wanderer & Tangerine
Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
Meet the duo of WanderingDragon379. Tangerine (Blue) and Wanderer (Red)
If you want to get technical, than it's writer in blue and illustrator in red. XD
If you have spoken to us before now, you were talking to Wanderer. We'll be announcing ourselves from now on to anyone we've interacted with before. Tangerine's a bit internet-shy, but she's also newer to high-speed than Wanderer is as well.

Hello! This is Tangerine. Wanderer has kindly shared her page with me, and, although I haven't been active here in the past, I hope to be more so from now on. Wanderer has given me the privilege of helping develop characters like Shiannon from Spirit of Nature and Hirabayashi Hisako from the Yakousai series, and I've even had the opportunity to co-author these stories, though I really haven't followed through with that yet. Hopefully, I will abandon (at least temporarily) my procrastination and perfectionism long enough to upload something and be less of a phantom. : )

Wanderer here! I'm the main illustrator between us while Tangerine is the writer. Our specialties do overlap a bit but she still beats me to a pulp when it comes to writing. I occasionally do sculpture and 3D animation, both of which you can find pictures of in the gallery and scrapbook. When I'm not doing coursework, I'm practicing on my drawing. And... listening to music, researching for personal projects, watching Youtube videos, reading fanfiction (great for inspiration), and... not much else I can think of right off the bat. ^^;

Wanderer's FAQ:

Q. What programs do you use?
A. Adobe's Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Illustrator (all CC), Dragonframe, QuickTime Player, and Autodesk Maya 2013. (College's Macintosh OS X laptop. The list is steadily growing).
Photoshop 6 and Hypercam 2. Autodesk Maya animation program. (WindowsXP).

Q. Do you take commissions?
A. No. I don't have PayPal or any online pay program so I'm not able to accept payment yet, as much as I'd like to.

Q. Do you do art trades and/or collaborations?
A. Only with very close friends, and even that's extremely rare.

Q. Do you take requests?
A. Used to. Because that question only came up maybe once every few months it wasn't a problem. But these days as soon as one request got finished, someone else would ask the magic question and I wouldn't have time to get personal work done.
I am always open to ideas however!

Current Residences: NC & FL.
Favourite genre of music: Pretty much all of them.
Exceptions? With today's "modern" tastes, if one has a habit of playing it loud enough to wake the dead or shake the car, chances are high its one of surprisingly few types I can't stand. ("screaming" metal, rap, dubstep, and hip hop)
Favourite style of art: I do have a major fascination for surreal and concept art. But I go for anything that makes sense.
Favourite cartoon character: Daffy Duck, Mulan, Himura Kenshin, Edward Elric, Olivier Armstrong, Zelgadis Greywords...
Personal Quote: Love your enemies. It'll make 'em crazy. ^^
You know you life is busy when it takes you 3+ days to answer 15 questions. :P
Anywho, on to the fun part!

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
It will be 6 years later this month.

2. What does your username mean?
My current name WanderingDragon379 is a reference to my favorite anime/manga Rurouni Kenshin (Wandering) and my oldest fantasy character Shagadore (Dragon). The 379 comes from both the Bible and Lord of the Rings, as they are prominent numbers in both sources.
My future name Kagoreon (pronounced Kago-ree-on) has no real personal base to speak of. "Kago," was a Japanese word I liked the sound of, and "reon" was simply me playing with sounds. I just wanted a name that was a lot more unique (go figure that I would later discover the similarly-named akreon).

3. Describe yourself in three words.
Amish-esque artistic nerd/geek. One term fits just as much as the other.

4. Are you left or right handed?
Right handed. Work-related injuries are slowly forcing me to become ambidextrous, though.

5. What was your first deviation?
Leviathan Shiannon by WanderingDragon379

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
Heart and Mind + Animation by WanderingDragon379 Leviathan + VIDEO by WanderingDragon379 A Place of Stillness + VIDEO by WanderingDragon379 Leviathan of Ticonderoga Bay by WanderingDragon379 WIPs, WIPS, and more WIPS... by WanderingDragon379Sleep, My Brother by WanderingDragon379 
Original characters, scenes that tell a story, style experimentation, and/or extremely emotional.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Anything in the physical/3D category. Sculpture, arts and crafts, leather and wood working, clothing, etc. That kind of stuff is incredible! Look at these beauties! OwO
White Dragon by creaturesfromel Kismet by scenceable House in a Field Book Sculpture by MalenaValcarcel Lonely Fight by ghoff24  RUQTULL DRACOH ( dragon's eye ) by LUNARIEEN Dragon Book by AlectorFencer For What You Have Tamed by behindinfinity

About the best "normal material" sculpture I ever did was this little speedmodel of an OC:
 Jin-figurine by WanderingDragon379I would love to spend more time in that medium.

8. What was your first favourite?
Leopard-portrait. by asemo

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
There isn't any type of art I specifically favorite more than others. I favorite work for different things, such as subject, style, material, who made it, etc. Anything that catches my eye, is tastefully done, and inspires me in some way or other.

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
Sorry, but it is impossible for me to pick just one! For the sake of fairness, I'm excluding people I know in real life. Otherwise, these are some of my favorite artists for various reasons:
 :icongolphee: :icontigerdragon1001: :iconailah: :iconakeli: :iconalectorfencer: :icongrypwolf: :iconmegatruh: :iconinnali:  :iconnajtkriss: :iconnicholaskole: :iconpallanoph: :iconsaimain: :iconsandara: :iconskysealer: :iconspoonfishlee: :icontamberella: :iconyuumei:

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
:icongolphee: and :icontigerdragon1001:, obviously, but I would also like to add :iconenglehart:, :iconemirichan317: , and :iconspoonfishlee: to that list. The latter three also hold special places in my mind, though they may not have known it. :3

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

Golphee, because she was one of the first, if not the first internet friend I ever had since I met her within the first year of my online life when I still walked on shaky legs. Nowadays we have wonderfully fun chats, gift-art each other, and have a friendly rivalry in which we are constantly inspiring and trying to outdo each other. All of which barely begins to describe what her friendship has meant to me.

I also have to mention TigerDragon1001 as she was to me what I probably was to Golphee: a friendly, artistic newcomer looking for guidance in the wide world of the 'net. She is an equally dear friend and became my first unofficial art pupil, which helped me a lot when it came to my "instructing skills". She's also an incredibly creative creature designer and an ideal person to go to for logical conversations about deep topics, to say the least.

*Curls up into a ball of happiness*

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
Photoshop, Wacom Intuos/Cintiq, pencil, watercolor, and acrylic. I'm anticipating that list will quickly expand this fall.

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Almost always wherever my tools and supplies are not.

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
So many wonderful memories. Whenever I check my inbox and see beautiful gift art, have long, deep conversations with friends, people commenting that something I've done has helped or inspired them, watching other artists progress and perfect their skills, you get the idea. I can't pick just one moment.
