Artist Interview

What's the latest piece of art that you have put out into the world?

In terms of fanart, it would be the "Guardian of the Seas" and "Guardian of the Skies" pair.  

 

What drives you to keep creating?

I'm an independent artist (and freelancer) by career, so developing my indie art business is both my primary career and my interest!

 

Is there another artist's work that you would recommend, and why?

Jenn Ravenna Tran's cinematography and photography.

 

Do you have any advice for creators that are just starting out?

It totally depends on the field they want to make a career in. For illustrators or artists pursuing a career in the animation industry, it's always better to take some quality art classes to start out and/or even attend a good art school to learn what studios look for in the field, make friends, and connect.
