Thank you for taking your time with the interview for %AllArtSupport.
%AllArtSupport 1. Tell us a few words about yourself.
~cindy-drawings My name is Cindy, I am 18 years old, I live in Switzerland and I am a hobbyist self-taught artist.
%AllArtSupport 2. What is the story behind your nickname?
~cindy-drawings This is not a big story behind my nickname. I only put my name and then "drawings" because my goal is to share my drawings on this website and it was a good way to resume why I am here.
%AllArtSupport 3. Which are the reasons you have made an account on Deviantart? Which are your expectation?
~cindy-drawings Actually, I don't remember exactly because I subscribed on Deviantart at the age of 13 but I guess it was to share my drawings to people who come from different countries. I don't really have expectations, expect it is a great pleasure to find such great artists here.
%AllArtSupport 4. Could you name some of your favorite artists (painter, musicians, writers, etc)?
~cindy-drawings One of my favourite artist is Lana Del Rey at first, then I will say Lady Gaga and Avril Lavigne. Otherwise I don't have painters or writers that I appreciate enough to mention them.
%AllArtSupport 5. When and how did you start experimenting with your artistic side?
~cindy-drawings I draw since I know how to use a pencil, but I started to draw portraits at the age of 12. One day, I only wanted to draw a portrait because I always used to draw animals like horses and I also wanted to improve my skills so that's it.
%AllArtSupport 6. What does “ART” mean to you?
~cindy-drawings ART means a lot of things to me. I mean art can be seen in different ways like drawing, photography or music for example. It depends on each person. But for me, ART is simply drawing celebrities as I do.
%AllArtSupport 7. What influences do you have ?
~cindy-drawings I am very influenced by skills of other artists on DeviantArt.
%AllArtSupport 8. What inspires You?
~cindy-drawings I am very inspired by artists who draw people or things so detailed.
%AllArtSupport 9. What kind of equipment do you use?
~cindy-drawings I use Canson A4 (also A3 & A5) paper, kneaded eraser, tissue & cotton buds, 0.5mm mechanical pencil, 4H to 9B pencils for black & white drawings. Coloured pencils for coloured drawings and I sometimes draw on a small sheet with a ballpoint pen.
%AllArtSupport 10. Of your own work, which has the most meaning to you and why?
~cindy-drawings I don't have ONE of my drawings which means more than the others. Actually all of them mean something to me. They belong to me in a way and this is probably why I don't want to sell them.
%AllArtSupport 11. Which are your top 5 Favorite web pages
~cindy-drawings Facebook, DeviantArt, Youtube, Stars-portraits and Skyrock.
%AllArtSupport 12. Your Quote?
~cindy-drawings Peace & Love.
%AllArtSupport 13. What advice would you give to other Deviants?
~cindy-drawings The most important thing is to keep doing whatever we like and no matter what people say.
%AllArtSupport 14. Is there anything else you would like to add?
~cindy-drawings Not really, expect that it was a great pleasure to ask your questions !
