Who are you, `lintu47
I'm Cristina, a dedicated member of dA's community since December 2006.
Did you know that "lintu" means "bird" in Finnish?
Yes, i did long before i joined dA.
What does your username "lintu47" stand for?
Heh, it's a lot to say and i won't say the exact meaning of it, just what parts of it mean.
I chose "lintu" because i like the freedom the birds have, and i also liked how "bird" sounded in Finnish. "4" is for death (in Japanese the pronunciation of 4 sounds a lot like death - and because of this the number 4 is considered to be unlucky, like 13 is for others). And finally, "7" was always one of my favourite numbers, i can't exactly say that it is my lucky number, but it's definitely one of my favourites. So my username is inspired by a combination of three things : )
Why is your avatar a cat and why do you have so many cat pictures in your gallery?
This is simple, i just like cats, and i think that is because i grew up with many, many animals around me. I always had in the house and yard at least 7 cats, 6 dogs (my grandfather used to save every kitten and pup he found, and i'm so much like him), cows, horses, pigs, birds etc. Now i don't like dogs anymore because when i moved to apartment i got bitten by the dogs of the neighbourhood, and that kinda left a scar.
What do you do in real life?
I'm a med student, planning to move to Australia in a couple of years.
Do you have accounts on other social sites?
Can we be friends? Can I have your Yahoo/Skype/etc?
Please don't ask this kind of thing upfront without knowing me (friendship doesn't really work that way and regardless, these are personal). If you wish to talk to me, send me a note
If you wish to stalk me, use one of the sites above.
How old are you?
Age doesn't matter, at least not for me. I'm born on April 10th 1990.
What's your favorite ice cream flavor?
I guess i'd have to choose between butterscotch, vanilla and strawberry.
Who is your favorite deviant?
I don't really have a favourite deviant, i have many friends that i admire and feel lucky i came across them; i guess i didn't really answered your question, but to give you at least a partial answer, my favourites (i could never choose just one) are those that are involved in the community, people that know how to give and receive and that are always there for those that need help. Selfless and kind people, to put it shortly.
As for being a regular member, beta tester, senior etc, that status doesn't define a person, so i don't really care about it. [link]
About my activity on dA
What do you want and why are you here?
I'm here to spread the dA love through my features, interviews, polls, comments, group activities and involvement in community projects. I wish to inspire others to support fellow artists without expecting anything in return.
Can I post your artwork on my website, or use it in any other way?
Absolutely not unless i state otherwise in the work's description. I may not be a bright artist, but i defend my works in every way i can.
Why do you persist in hiding your replies on your artworks and journals?
I do so because seeing my replies with "It's my pleasure" or "Thank you, you're very kind" won't help you in making an opinion about me or about my work. Plus, i like keeping things as simple and clean as possible. Still, if i feel an answer may be relevant for others i will keep the reply visible.
Why do you feature so many works that contain nudity?
I don't have a problem with mature content because i don't have inhibitions or preconceived ideas - art is beautiful regardless if it's nude or not. And i love the human body - it's miraculous, complicated and deserves a lot more respect and admiration than many of us show towards it.
Can i suggest someone for your features/interviews?
Yes, you can, just note me
How do you find the time to juggle med school and help out on dA so much?
Simple, I don't watch tv.
Why do i see you commenting on every DD?
Are you a bot?
If there's anything i could be instead of a human i'd be a rather large feline instead of a spamming program. So no, i'm not a bot.
What group experience do you have?
A lot, actually. Here is a list i compiled to keep track of it:
Can you give me points?
No. Please don't ask/beg for points, and most importantly, don't do it in a rude manner
If i can help you in any way, i will, but i will surely not give you points just because you asked; i only give points to those in dire need, and oftenly those persons didn't even ask for them.
As i always say in my replies, i don't have so many points as you may think by looking at my donation pool (i gave many of them away as prizes for my contest) and i am currently raising more for future contests. Therefore, my advice for those that want points is to enter contests, do commissions or try their luck on giveaways.
Your avatar is so cute, who made it?
