OnyxGalaria - QA

Posted by Aalasteir - April 12th, 2024


@OnyxGalaria - @Aalasteir (Q) - Index


Q: When did you become interested in using the Internet? Why do you use the Internet, and what would you like to gain from it?


I started using the internet at the ripe ol' age of 7 if my memory serves me right. I remember borrowing my moms' phone to binge watch "X ways to kill Toad" and this one Mario sprite animation series based of the Total Drama series. I use the internet to connect with friends, share my art and post whatever is on my mind. Sometimes, I wish I got more eyes looking at my work.



Q: Why did you join the site?


My earliest memories of joining NewGrounds were of me submitting a gijinka aka a humanized design of DeviantArt for a DrawWithJazza/Jazza contest back in 2017. I deleted that old account and made a new one under "OnyxGalaria" in 2020 because I didn't know that Supporters could change their username, lol. [Or I was too broke.]

I know y'all are gonna beat my ass for this, but I joined when the FNF hype was at its' peak. Despite this, I've stuck around for the fact it's one of the remaining places that actually showcases HUMAN talent and not robo-slop. :P



Q: What inspires you as an artist?


Lots of things inspire my art; including music, trends, media I like, other artists, other peoples' OCs or just some cool image I find on the internet! My BIGGEST inspiration changes on a case-by-case basis, but as of writing this, it's the music I listen to!



Q: How did you become interested in creating art?


Ever since I was young, I loved to draw! But in 2015 when I got my first WiiU, Art Academy: Home Studio was my breakthrough moment. I remember uploading my art to Youtube and MiiVerse and being SO proud of it at the time! The Youtube videos are considered "lost media" since I deleted them, but SOME of the art is out there if you look deep enough! Art Amino was also a driving point to take my art seriously.



Q: What are your thoughts on collabs?


I LOVE collabs! My favourite thing about them is when each submission comes together to make one big piece! :D

It also gives me an excuse to do some side quests and engage with the community more! My goal this year is to be part of at least 10 collabs; as of writing this, I'm about 3/5ths of the way through!



Q: Why do you think there are people who have different interests than you?


People can like all sorts of things; no 2 people have the EXACT same interests! Some people prefer more casual media, while others like more mainstream/popular stuff! If people don't like the same stuff as I do, no biggie! Just don't be an ass over it, lol. Same for me not liking things other people enjoy. Unless there's a reason for me not to like something [for example, the fandom being unpleasent], I'll hold my peace.



Q: Who is some ordinary gamer?


Mutahar? Is this a trick question? :P



Q: Who do you think should be bad from the BBS, and does he know who the creator of Madness is?


Tbh, I rarely use the BBS unless it's for entering collabs- [i'm shy ><], so I don't have an answer for that right now. But if they don't know who Matt "Krinkels" Jolly is, I'll assume they'll call me a slur.



Q: Do you like waffles? Do you like pancakes?


Yeah, I like waffles! Yeah, I like pancakes! And of course, yeah, I love french toast! :3 [me beating the newgen allegations]



Q: What is the story behind your animation? Blukas' Pizza Order


People were animating their OCs/other characters to a Tiktok audio and it got me envisioning this scene with one of my OCs, Bluka [the blue Robloxian with the tilted face]. So I "animated" it with the very little knowledge I remembered from high school media arts and I whipped up a silly animation! [Tbh, I never expected it to do numbers on Tiktok-]
