ASKtheARTIST Interview: SHILIN by thefluffyshrimp ASKtheARTIST interview! [FINISHED]Interview transcript from the :iconasktheartist: interview in February! I forgot to post it but here it is ^^ this makes a pretty good FAQ because lots of the questions I answered here are questions I get asked a lot.
- - -
<thefluffyshrimp> *KuroiiChan asks "I know your mostly self-taught, so how did you teach yourself? Do you have any tips on what to study?"
<shilin> I learned most of what I know from simply drawing, I never sat down to practice particular things so I don't have any useful tips for it. ):
<shilin> My way of self teaching is pretty slow and inefficient, but it allows me to still enjoy drawing and not get bored by feeling obliged to practice.
<shilin> So if that works for you, the only things you really need to keep in mind is to have an open mind, and pay critical attention to everything you see. (:

Welcome to ASKtheARTIST. My name is *thefluffyshrimp and today I have the great privilege to interview *algenpfleger, a very talented illustrator and creator of many well-known works on deviantART.

*Vellez asks "What is your creative process? Do you just research and then begin drawing when you get an assignment, or do you mull it over a bit?"
Hmm it usually starts with me getting the assignment since I spend my freetime drawing other things mostly (these days at least). As soon as I know what the client wants, I leave it alone for a couple of days and wait for ideas to sprout in my head. The rest is just craftsmanship, you know, drawing the stuff and everything. The real work is done as soon as I put down the thumbnail sketch.

~rankirubai asks "In what ways has Shaun helped your art and creativity improve? What kinds of insights on art, character design, storytelling, etc has he given you?"
Before I met Shaun (`endling) I was pretty much on my own when it came to art, looking things up and reading tutorials etc. It's been really hard sometimes.
Nowadays, he's the person I talk to all the time, discussing art and stories and games and such. it's really important to me to have another opinion on my work, especially from someone

~StrifeLaughter asks "About how much of your day is devoted to drawing?"
Quite a lot of it. I keep thinking the day is longer than 24 hours and sleep isn't THAT important, is it?
On average I'd say ten to fifteen hours is dedicated to drawing a day.

In Print: there's that Street Fighter next generation Trade

Interview with `loish
10/28/2012
~MemoiresDuneFille asks "Loish, what inspired you to become an artist?"
I can't say that anything specific really inspired me. It was more a natural progression. I have been drawing since I was very young and honestly do not remember when I even started doing it, but I do remember always enjoying it and seeing it as my 'talent' throughout elementary and middle school. By the time I had to make a career choice in high school, I decided to do pursue it professionally because I just couldn't stand dividing my time between schoolwork and making my personal drawings. It was torture! So I felt I had to do it in order to stay sane :] That's pretty much how it went!
*merry-zazoue asks "You're doing both animation and illustration, how can you manage to have a good level in both? I'm an animation student and I love illustration too, do you have any advices? Aside working like crazy of course! I'm already doing it ^^"
I think the main reason I do both is because

Roman!  Hello there!
Ah, well for Starfighter- I was a huge fan of the yaoi genre and I loved sci-fi, but with a few exceptions (such as Ai no Kusabi), I hadn't really seen the two merged
I came up with designs for the characters and tried to think of how I wanted their person

Excellent! :DHahaha.
*RedVenture asks "How did you get started doing art, Endling?"
When I was little, my dad would bring home paper from his job. He worked with computers and stuff and often had tons of it lying around, so I'd make use of it and draw. (With his permission. Occasionally.) After a while he noticed I had a habit of doing this. Usually robot caterpillars. I'm not kidding

AtAInterview transcript
8/27/12

Hey folks! It is now 6pm. You know what that means. It is interview time! Let us begin.

Here is how the interview works: You can all ask questions and chat freely in the chatroom called AtAChat. I will be copy-pasting your questions to Alexiuss and he will answer them in live time in ATAInterview.
We conduct the interview this way to avoid having the artist spammed with too many questions all at once, and to reduce text clutter so that you can all read the artist's responses to the questions.
A special thank you goes out to our lovely mods, ~Melancholy-Minds and ~Twilight-Zero!
Please be aware that we do our best to get as many questions answered as possible, however, if we do not choose your question to send to the artist, please do not be offended. It does not mean it was not a good question. It is just not possible for the artist to answer all questions. Thank you for your understanding.

Interview with Slinkers
8/13/12
Welcome to ASKtheARTIST! Today we will be interviewing the artist behind a number of popular comics and Flash animations on deviantART, Slinkers.
Firstly, I want to begin by thanking you Slinkers for agreeing to do an interview with us at such a late hour.
No problemo! :)
*Unadzuki asks "Where do you get your ideas?"
Arrrgh a hard question to start with! Hard because I can't really explain where I get them. I'm assuming it's from day to day life, but I don't actually get the ideas until I sit down in front of my computer with a master plan to make an animation/comic. I sit there, decide what I feel like drawing... then I make the idea up as I go along. This doesn't always work, and I often waste hours on duff ideas. But then I get a good one and make it!
~VioletLobo asks "When you first started did it ever occur to you that you might be this popular?"
Not at all. I started on DA randomly beca

Hey all you folks there in AtAChat! Go ahead and start posting questions now.
asks "Apofiss, where does the inspiration for your art usually come from?"
it tends to come from daily inspirations where dA actually has a huge role in it. the artists I follow, animes and movies... it's like an outcome from it all. also, the music... it does help a lot to imagine certain atmosphere more intensively.
asks "What program do you use?"
I use photoshop and paint tool sai.; photoshop mainly for colour correction an such.
asks "How did your unique style of art evolve?"
I think it began back in 2008 when I painted the very first bubble :Dno really, the painting called ''mutual thing'' ...it was like a certain start I think. I remember few years ago I got really inspired by cypherx (she's on dA) wo

Hey all you folks there in AtAChat! Go ahead and start posting questions now.
~random-artist101 asks, "What brought you to deviantART?"
Awesome for a first question, I was brought to deviantART by a group of artists that I knew in an Oekaki/PaintChat site called "BakaNeko." I used to draw a bunch of landscapes there and everyone on that site was so nice and helpful. So one day they just told me about deviantART and how I should post some of my stuff there. I think I still have one painting from BakaNeko up in my deviantART gallery.

It is also highly recommended that you join our FaceBook or Twitter pages (  www.facebook.com/pages/AskTheA… and twitter.com/#!/AskArtists ) as well, so that you can be notified of upcoming interviews without having to regularly login to DA to check. Watching our Facebook or Twitter pages is the best way to be notified of any last minute interviews and other breaking news.

:bulletyellow: "How can I ask one of my favorite artists a question during the interview?"

Answer: When a live interview with that artist is in progress, join the dAmn chatroom "AtAChat" here --> chat.deviantart.com/chat/AtACh… . While you are there, you can ask questions that you would like the artist to answer. The interviewer will pick from the questions that are asked in the chatroom to give to the artist in live time in the interview room. The artist will answer your question from there. You will get credit for your interview question. Note that you must be a group member (or watching us on Facebook / Twitter) to be notified when interviews with your favorite artists are taking place.

:bulletyellow: "I'm in AtAChat right now, but I don't see the interview! What's going on?"

Answer: To participate in the interview, you must be in both chatrooms: AtAChat and ATAInterview, which is located here --> chat.deviantart.com/chat/ATAIn… . You will watch the interview with the artist in live time in ATAInterview, while asking questions and chatting with fellow fans in AtAChat. :-)

:bulletyellow: "I'm in ATAInterview right now and am watching the interview, but I can't send messages in the chatroom! I want to ask the artist a question! What's going on?"

Answer: To participate in the interview, you must be in both chatrooms: ATAInterview and AtAChat, which is located here -->  chat.deviantart.com/chat/AtACh… . You will watch the interview with the artist in live time in ATAInterview, while asking questions and chatting with fellow fans in AtAChat. :-)

:bulletyellow: "Why do I have to be in both chatrooms, ATAInterview and AtAChat, to participate in the chat?"

Answer: We do this to prevent both spam and text clutter. Over a hundred people can be in the chatroom at one time, so it can get cluttered with text. Having the interview going live in a separate room as "the question and chatting room" makes it easier for all members to watch the interview and keep track of what the artist is saying without becoming overwhelmed by text. It also prevents the artist from becoming overwhelmed with dozens of questions at once.

:bulletyellow: "I keep asking my question over and over again, but the interviewer isn't picking my question to give to the artist! :( "

Answer: Please understand that as much as we would love to pick ALL our members' questions, we can get hundreds of questions posted during one interview, and it just isn't possible for the artist to answer them all. If we don't pick your question, it does not mean that it was not a good question. We just have to filter the number of questions that we receive down to smaller amount in order to avoid overwhelming the artist. If your question is not picked right away, please do not rapidly repost it over and over again. We allow you to repost your question a few times if the chatroom is moving quickly (sometimes the interviewer may just not have the chance to see all the questions for this reason), but out of consideration for others, please avoid spamming the room with the same question. It could result in you being kicked out or even banned from the room by the chatroom moderators. Thank you for your understanding.

:bulletyellow: "Can I recommend one of my favorite artists (or even myself) to be interviewed with ASKtheARTIST?"

Answer: Of course! We openly accept recommendations of deviantART artists to host interviews with. However, please understand that we typically only interview artists with already medium to large followings (as explained below). Although we do our best to host interviews with as many artists as possible, we can not guarantee that your artist recommendation will be chosen or that recommended artists will agree to be interviewed. If your artist recommendation is not chosen, it does not mean that we "didn't like" the artist or their work. There is an endless amount of incredibly talented and deserving artists on deviantART who we would love to interview, but due to scheduling and the personal life of the interviewers, it is just not possible for us to have the opportunity or the time to interview them all. Thank you again for your understanding.

:bulletyellow: "Why does ASKtheARTIST only hold interviews with artists that already have medium to large followings of fans?"

Answer: The reason for this is based on the fan-contribution method that we use to conduct interviews. We have the artists' followers ask the artists most of the questions during the interviews. Therefore, if an artist only has 4 followers, for instance, then there wouldn't be many questions for the artist to answer or many people to watch the interview. If an artist does not have a large number of followers, this of course does not mean that they are not incredibly talented or deserving as artists. As said before, there is an endless amount incredibly skilled and deserving artists on deviantART. The system of fan-contributed interview questions that we happen to use simply restricts us to interviewing those with medium to large sized followings. Thank you once again for your understanding. :-)

A special thanks to all our supporters! :heart:

We always transcribe our interviews. We edit them to ensure there aren't any mistakes and then upload them to our group's gallery. :)

Hello! We sent the transcripts to her a while ago, but she hasn't uploaded them yet, so it looks like we'll have to do it soon. :-) Thank you for your patience!
