http://www.brainfarto.0catch.comWhat type of tools or media do you use?
For the basics (lines), I'll use a regular bic mechanical pencil with
.7 lead, or if I'm feeling different, .5. For inking, I like to use
those nifty micron pens, usually around .1, .005, or .5, but I do NOT
recommend that anyone live by those as a means of inking anything.
With that said, I like to explore different pen brands, and I'm
currently experimenting with brush pens. I support the nifty Japanese
Calligraphy pens and pen sets. They are SO good.
As for color, I'll use whatever I can get my hands on: watercolors,
colored pencils/art stix, oil pastels, markers, oil and acrylic
paints, make-up, hey... if it makes color, I'll use it.
And for the digital work, I like to use photoshop (I use photoshop 7
sometimes CS), Illustrator, and Painter 8 all with a wacom intous 2
tablet.. I think.Where is the place you would like to work or be an Intern if you had a choice?
In the states, I would like to work at Pixar (who wouldn't?) because
they're doing things with a creative touch and they pay attention to
story. If I could, I'd really like to work for Gainax in Japan because
their work is INSANE! They seem like the sort of studio that isn't
afraid to do things where they count. And I'd kind of like to work on
Robot Chicken as a writer among other roles.
Of course, that's all just me dreaming big, I guess. I just want to
get into college first.Who do you think are the top character designers out there?
In terms of being popular, I think Shane Glines, Bruce Timm, and uhh...
In terms of my favorites, Kevin Dalton, Matt Groening, Raphaëlle Marx,
and all my friends who do this sort of thing.What are some of your favorite character designs which you have seen?
I think a top favorite may be Bender from Futurama. Then as you go
down the line, Retro (along with 97% of the designs from "Dead
Leaves"), Little Gloomy and cast, The Venture Bros. are full of fun,
and it goes on and on...What is your most favorite subject to draw? And why?
The human body. DANG. I can't help it! I like to develop the human
body, particularly in abstract or impossible ways. For example, long
arms, or joints in the wrong spots. I gather a lot from the human body
because it has a lot to offer.What inspired you to become an Artist?
