ThePrettyRiver's Profile Picture
Minna Fagerström
Artist | Student | Traditional Art

•·.·´`·.·• WELCOME TO MY PAGE •·.·´`·.·•

Hello there! \(^-^)

I’m a 23-year-old freshly graduated visual artisan and art student from Lohja, Finland. I've went through the studies of visual and media art at a career college, went for one year to an art line at the adult education college and graduated from high school. I've also attended an art school for kids for seven years.

I’ve been into visual arts ever since I was a kid. It’s the hole of my spirit and a way to went. I love doing things with my hands and I’m quite omnivore about art methods. My areas of interest are e.g. drawing, different painting techniques, figurative painting and other natural themes.

Along with making art I spend my time knocking out pins at a bowling alley and reading romantic novels when laying on a bed.

•·.·´`·.·• FIND ME ALSO ON •·.·´`·.·•

Facebook (personal)

I'll give the link to my fb via note but you also have to tell me who you are there. Otherwise I may ignore your friend requests.

And don't forget to visit my new web portfolio made with Carbonmade ;D

    1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    • I've been on dA since March 2nd 2012, so it makes 5 years and 3 months in total.
    2. What does your username mean?
    • The name of my current account, ThePrettyRiver, is just a free translation from my Finnish Swede surname FagerströmMy previous account I named Mangaka-Finny because I tend to love making manga-styled drawings when I was younger. At the same time I was very proud to be a Finn (which I still am actually). However, this style isn't my bag anymore, and that's the reason why I shifted to another account.
    3. Describe yourself in three words.
    • I'm a scrupulous contrarian who enjoys herself on her own.
    4. Are you left or right handed?
    • Right handed (though people say I draw and write well with both hands).
    5. What was your first deviation?
    • It was this drawing of my little bro (my style has changed a bit from those times, isn't it?)
                Manga boy with guitar by Mangaka-Finny

    6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    • I'm quite omnivorous regarding to all the methods of visual art, but drawing and painting are really the ones I'm most familiar with. In addition to this I prefer performing style to an abstract one when I'm making art.
    7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    • Definitely the Renaissance art! I always adore how blow-by-blow were the painters of the time! 
    8. What was your first favourite?
    • At first on DA I faved this icon base because I used it to make an icon request for a friend.
                     Ico-chan base by leviathen
                But, instead of the previous one, this was the first deviation I really fell in love with!

                MidWinter Fire - Cornus sanguinea ++contest++ by NestOfDreams

    9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    • The most of my faves are semi-realistic or manga styled fantasy characters, but you can as well see there some landscapes and still lives there.
    10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    • I can't name only one deviant, but I'll tell you some of them. There are at least sakimichan, cherriuki, Nachi and AquaSixio who are my favourites at the moment.
    11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    • It'd be either Chlorophyllhteleaf or SapphireShine because they were my first friends here on dA (I actually met them already on drawingnow which is as well an art site)
    12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    • As I said, they have been my very first dA friends (and great ones as well). Also they have both been nice to talk with and have cheered me when I've been sad.
    13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    • I create my art mostly with paper and pencils (as coloured or greyscale) but I also use acrylic paints and canvas every now and then (my paintings are almost always coloured).
    14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    • It's either an art class at a school or just my own room.
    15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    • I think it's the moment when I got a watch and a fave from BlackDragon07. I had been on dA just for few months and she was the first deviant I didn't already know. I wasn't about to believe that because someone had just bit earlier faved my work and unfaved it by the same token. But after realizing it was true I felt totally flattered and thought myself as a really liked person!
