How long have you been on DeviantArt?
Since mid-2012.What does your username mean?
Nothing really. I like the word 'echo' (and I'm a bit fan of delay audio effects
) and my first iPod was called 'Echolon' (like the word 'echelon'). One day I mistyped it as Echolox and picked that as a username ever since.Describe yourself in three words.
eclectic, technophilic, sleepyAre you left or right handed?
Right handed What was your first deviation?
I made this account after finishing my second cosplay, Dark Link. Laovaan and I went to do a photoshoot and the whole evening was spent putting them up on dA. Needless to say, the initial response got me hooked x)
What is your favourite type of art to create?
With dA being focused on visual arts I tend to mostly upload cosplay. My favourite type of art to make is still music though. I'm much more fluent in it than I am at crafting cosplays. Sadly it's is much harder to get people to listen to music as you have to spend a few minutes listening to a song instead of glancing at a picture and subconsciously deciding in less than a second whether you like it or not.
If you haven't listened to any of my music yet, consider visiting my Bandcamp Page
where you can get all my music for free (even if it says 'Buy Now', just enter $0.00 and it will be free!). You could listen while reading the rest of this journal
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Something completely different that I don't have any skill in at all? Drawing. To be more precise digital drawing and painting. Not only for drawing characters but also geometry and abstract art which I like a lot.
When it comes to broadening my skillset in something I already do it would be armor crafting, especially things like Gundam Cosplays.What was your first favourite?
I had browsed dA way before registering so technically it will be something really old which I don't know anymore. My first favorite is this one though:
Now of course that's a picture by my lovely Laovaan
so I'll also through in my first favorite not by him:
I just love anything Gundam.What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Fanart and cosplay of anything Link, Ike, Pit, Lavi, Free. Just look at my tumblr Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
of course x) He's the best and I'm so thankful to have him in my life <3
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Thankfully I have already met a lot of people I only knew from dA, even from overseas. But I think I'd go with Lemmonias
. We've been in contact for some time because of our music projects but man, there is quite some distance between us ^^How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Every single positive comment impacts my life, just as any new follower who appreciates what I do. I could single out Laovaan
here once again but you know about that already What are your preferred tools to create art?
Ableton Live 9 + Massive + Guitar for Music
Good fabrics + my sewing machine for Cosplay. I also need a lot of glue but everytime it's necessary to use some it means that part of the cosplay is probably very tedious and I don't enjoy making it very much :'D
What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Honestly: At home. I get most of my inspiration from things I see on the internet and I'm also the most relaxed at home so the combination of both leads to the most inspiration for me. Oh wait, screw that, taking a bath is even better What is your favourite DeviantArt memory
Getting a photo of the second cosplay I'd ever created on the front-page gave me a huge boost, no question. The other, slightly related memory, was being a fan of Saitoru
and then her randomly appearing at our booth at Dokomi, recognizing her from her business card and being like 'Hey, I'm a fan of your stuff'.
