What was your first project that made you feel like a real artist and how did you get it?
Probably the very first commission I got when I was a teen ! It was small, Naruto OC related and definitely not my best work, but I was so proud of someone wanting to commish me, and it still does ! I still feel so flattered and cool when I get commissions are just nice messengers from people
What is your primary inspiration when creating art?
I tend to always get ideas when listening to music ! But I’m also generally inspired by video games, especially RPG games
What other artists do you use to learn technique?
I tend not to idolize specific artist, due to the fact that I can get so jealous of not being able to draw like them, but I do frequent the blog; The Redline Station, for tips and ticks
Where would you like to see yourself in five years with your art?
I would love to be working full time with art creation. I also hope have to finished several small comics and be currently publishing my project; Out of The Hunt
What would your dream project be?
My dream project would be, being a game director for my own AAA game about my project Out of The Hunt !
Final four questions –we ask everybody
Q) When the zombies take over the world where will you be?
There are 2 possibilities, I’m either starving to death somewhere cause I don’t wanna go outside, or I have become the main brawler/leader of my group of friends, there is no in between
Q ) How do you identify Jedi, lesbian, Ninja, gay, vampire, bisexual, were-wolf, transgender, pirate, asexual, fairy, aromantic, sith, intersex, Spartan, non-binary, genderfluid, queer, …? ?
Oh, def a lesbian bear ! Were-bear ? Maybe
Q) What piece of art, be it in the form of music, a ,book, a film or picture, do you think people must experience before they die?
I think everyone should play the video game; Outer Wilds ! It’s such an emotional, mysterious and fun game with a soundtrack that makes me cry
Q) Give one fact that most people would not believe about you?
I’m not sure what people won’t believe, but I think most people don’t expect is just how much of a baby fever I have ! I naturally come of as p menacing in real life, so it’s a bit of a take back when people find out just how much I love and adore children. The other day my sister sent me a video of my 2 year old nephew saying carrot and I cried
