Tell me a little bit about yourself, about your life? Where did you go to school, and what classes did you study? What helped prepare you to become the artist that you are today?
I kept drawing as a hobby and passion and was introduced to digital art when I discovered Deviantart at least 3 years ago and that's when I started dabbling in with pixels. I'm currently in a university in a course with no relation to art since I only do draw for the fun of it. I love being an artist though. ^^
It would probably cute things and male subjects, it even got to a point where I'm having trouble with drawing girls *laughs* I try to work it out in a balance now though. For theme, I like working with fantasy ones.
Who are the top illustrators whose works excite you the most?
A lot actually. Tetsuya Nomura, Kohaku Kuroboshi, Kōsuke Fujishima, Takeshi Obata, Ugetsu Hakua, Azumi Tohru and more. Yeah mostly game designers since I'm playing a lot of games right now so I'm mostly exposed to their arts.
Techniques to drawing and coloring and how to do things, I suppose. I still continue to learn from what I see from them consciously or not.
What are some of your favorite websites that you go to?
Deviantart, Youtube, livejournal. Occasionally, I go to my fav artists websites.
What wisdom could you give us, about being an Artist? Do you have any tips you could give?
You can contact me through my email: scarlet_curse [at] yahoo.com and/or through my DA account: http://meru-chan.deviantart.com
Why not a course or career in the arts?
I did consider taking fine arts back then, but a part of me still can't take studying arts seriously(that's why despite liking drawing very much, I don't excel in art classes at school that much ^^;). Also I wanted to be an engineer more at that time so I ended up to where I am now.
