What does your username mean?
Eti is from Etiunis, long story short - I had Latin at collage, our professor was always writing our mistakes, that we made in colloquiums, on the blackboard and once he wrote my mistakes: "Mika -> et - uni - s" and so I became Etiunis ^ _ ^
Describe yourself in three words.
crafter - I love to do things, is it quilling, decoupage, kumihimo, flower arrangements or some DIY projects, I think it`s because I was always crafting with my Dad (I loved to help him build kites),
handyman - my house is almost 90 years old and after my Dad died there was no one to take care of it, so I`m my own carpenter, plumber, electrician and everything else I need to be. Although I`m female and everyone told my Dad that it`s useless to teach a girl the "boy-stuff" he don't wanted to hear it. He always told me that I have two hands (only one left) and a head on my shoulders that means I`m as good as any man. So he thought me every thing a "boy" should know. Thank You Dad for believing in me
loner - I never had friends, no one ever wanted to be my friend. I remember that no one wanted to play with me so my Dad started to bring me, from his foreign delegations, Transformers figurines, some HotWheels cars, a skateboard... suddenly every boy wanted to be my "friend". This tendency continued throughout my whole school life - was it some project, notes, books, there has always been something for what it was worth to be my "friend" but it never was me.
If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
digital painting ( I always dreamed to be a painter, my Dad believed I could become one but the rest of the Family thought it`s just a waste of time, that I`m the last person who could do something more then just some childish doodles... despite my Dads support I broke under my Family constant mocking and pressure and gave up painting.)
If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
I would like to meet everyone ^_^ to see what inspires them, to hear they story how they came to do what they do... but I`m so bad when it comes to talking with people that I would probably just try to hide in a corner because I would feel that I`m just disappointing everyone and after that no one would ever talk to me again.
Why do I think so? I had a chat-friend and we talked for years but then he decided that it`s finally time, after knowing each other on-line for 9 years, to meet in person. There was this opportunity - a "holiday fair". After a lot of convincing I meet him. I just feel how disappointed he was. After this meeting he broke off all contacts with me. Trust me you don`t want to meet me. I`m pure disappointment.
How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
Every one who leaves a comment or faves my work impacts my life in a way and I appreciate it. They help me to keep up the believe that what I`m doing has sense, that it`s not just some worthless junk, that it`s not a waste of time, money and materials. THANK YOU for helping me believe in myself and in the art I make
What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Getting the Daily Deviation and reading all those nice comments, I was about to quit crafting (again) but this gave me new energy to continue.
