.:Meet the Artist:. MariusOfTheSea by MariusOfTheSea .:Meet the Artist:. MariusOfTheSea by MariusOfTheSea
Taa-da! The 'ayes' had it and here's my Meet the Artist meme! This was originally just the draft, as I was going to do it digitally to make it cute and vwhatnot, but I realized this was much more natural and personal to me. I always have a black, single subject spiral on me filled with class notes and doodles (my current most one featuring Spanish Lit and Katsudon!) And cod I haven't done a self portrait since the 8th grade (I'm a senior in college).

I'll take it one step further and turn this into a Q&A! If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask them!

I started speaking Spanish in the 8th grade; that said, I'm now a senior in college. So I've been working on it for ~8-9 years, however, I would consider only the past 3-4 to be intensive on trying to become fluent.

I started speaking Spanish because I was forced to! *laughs* in Texas, foreign language is required for highschool. I wanted to take German, but because of Texas' proximity to Mexico, my mother made me take Spanish.

I LOVE Spanish. It's so rewarding to be able to use it everyday and communicate with people who otherwise I'd be unable to. I use Spanish at work and school, and it's something that makes me very happy.

I will be 22 in March!

I'll ask you questions inside this thread ♡

Ok.

I'll be 15 on March (I'm still 14, but I like telling I'm 15 now).

By the way, I speak a little bit of German too.

I started speaking English along with Spanish (since I as born), so I have like 10 years of academical formation on English till this moment.

Just a pair of suggestions (I'm Mexican, so my mother tongue is Spanish and I have a PET on Cambrige (I'm 15-years-old))

1.- We use this both symbols:
 
¡ to open an exclamative sentence
! to close an exclamative sentence

Example:

¡Marius es genial!

2.- When you talk about your fluency in Spanish, you must say "fluido", not "fluente".

"Fluente" is used when you mean to describe the flow of a liquid.

Example:

Mi alemán es fluido (I'm fluent at German)
El arroyo fluente (The flowing stream)

If you need help with your Spanish, I can help you.

¡Saludos desde México!
Greetings from Mexico¡

I struggle more with tense change and proper word for when trying to remember on the spot ((ie Fuente y Fluida))

I'll make a chart to help you on tenses.
I'll upload it as a deviation and I'll tag you, ok?

Thanks!

Don´t you worry.
I like studying languages (even mine), but I'll take me a while.

I have one question. Why don't you like O.C's

This is a difficult one to answer based on the ambiguity of my opinion: I do but I don't.

Obviously there is a part of me that likes OCS, since the vast majority of my art is characters from my best friend OddLittleBug's book. When I am close with someone, I love to hear about their creativity and characters they bring to life. I want to produce art for those I care for.

On the flipside of this, I hate OCs. I hate seeing the ones that are blatant ripoffs, or self insert OP hacks that try to shove themselves into storylines where the don't belong or fit.
I also hate HAVING them. I don't really consider myself to have OCs, but when I actually sit down and think, I DO HAVE them. For a few years, I had a handful of OCs that I poured into. I have plenty I've written with complex original characters, but my problem lies in that they don't get used. They don't get played with. And there is an inherent sadness in having something you love so much and never getting to develop it.

So tl;dr, I hate MarySue ass OCs that are shoved where they don't belong and I'm sad over not playing with old OCs.
