Hi guys! How have you been?
I know it's been long since I should have answered to your question, I took some time, and did that.
You have my answers here.
I'm picking the most interesting question tomorrow - and I'll update my journal to let you know who gets the pack of goodies.
HUGS!Q:If your heart was a material, what would it me comprised of?A:
Vibranium. I want a heart as cool and as strong as the shield of Captain America! Q: How do you add the lights/shadows on your creations so greatly? A:
This is a compliment, and I want to thank you for it.
I don't know. It all goes with the flow;
Even though I do a lot of fantasy/dreamy kind of works, I try to keep what needs to be real. (Shadows, lights, etc). I just try to make them look, as they would look if the image would have been real.Q: How did you get passionate about photomanipulation ? Is photomanipulation your most favourite form of art, or do you like something else better ? (i mean form of art that you can actually perform; not, for example, music, if you cannot compose songs).A:
I was an art person since I was little.
Actually, I was a pretty good dancer when I was little. I still am, but I'm not between the professional ones. I just dance now and then, to keep myself in shape and also to express somewhat the dancing talent... I guess.
I also like photography - which I did before discovering photomanipulation.
But yes, photomanipulation is my favorite form of art now.
I love it!Q: Could you tell me about the moment of conception of an idea for a new artwork and the process that follows until your vision is finally done in material form?A:
I get this question quite often.
My ideas are either influenced by songs, books, videos or movies I see. Either they come out of nothing, and they just strike me when I see a certain stock.
Then comes the long and painful job: finding the stock.
Afterwards, it's the beautiful process of blending and mixing the image until it gets to the point in which it looks like the image from my head.
Sometimes I like to keep to file a few more hours or days before posting it.
I always come back to change something at it.Q:I heard that you were leaving dA for a while, what makes you comeback here?A:
The art and the beautiful people.
I felt sorry for the break I took. It's like being in a coma. When you wake-up, you feel like the whole world has changed. dA has changed a lot, it's true. But my passion for art didn't.
And while I have people that get inspired by my artwork, and while I have people that I love and cherish here - I feel the need to be around.
Yeah, dA is like a sweet addiction. Q: How do you blend backgrounds so effectively? What's your secret?A:
I don't have a secret.
As I mentioned before, even if the theme is fantasy or dark, I like to keep the natural things as...real and natural as possible.
Lights, shadows and color matching - this is my secret!
