Thank you for taking your time with the interview for %AllArtSupport.
%AllArtSupport 1. Tell us a few words about yourself.
*serafleur Heya! I'm Abbii, 19 year old Entreprenurship student from the Philippines. I started to draw when I was 7 and began to draw digitally 5 years ago. My dream is to become a Fashion Designer and Video Game Designer.
%AllArtSupport 2. What is the story behind your nickname?
*serafleur I wanted my username to be a bit related to my own story, which I created 5-6 years ago. The word entwined is synonymous to twisted so it's similar to "twisted fate".
%AllArtSupport 3. Which are the reasons you have made an account on Deviantart? Which are your expectation?
*serafleur I came across here a very long time ago when I was browsing for a video game character (for a drawing reference), then I saw the artworks of great artists and started to be inspired. Thus, I created my own account but didn't submit any art for the first whole year of my membership here. I became motivated because of many inspiring artists and I wanted to become as good as them.
%AllArtSupport 4. Could you name some of your favorite artists (painter, musicians, writers, etc)?
*serafleur There are soo many of them, but some of them are: Jace-Wallace (deviant), David/DryPencil (deviant), Lacuna Coil (band), Within Temptaion (band), Chopin (musician/pianist)
%AllArtSupport 5. When and how did you start experimenting with your artistic side?
*serafleur Just last year after I submitted my first artwork here in dA. After seeing so many great artworks, I thought of creating my own style and become better and improve as time goes by
%AllArtSupport 6. What does “ART” mean to you?
*serafleur Art is where I can express my thoughts, my feelings, even my whole self. It's also a stress-reliever and makes me forget the cruel truth of reality.
%AllArtSupport 7. What influences do you have ?
*serafleur Fashion and fantasy. I usually mix them because I love both. It's a way to express my interest in fantasy and fashion.
%AllArtSupport 8. What inspires You?
*serafleur Video games (especially RPG games) and music. After I played so many RPG games, I started to create my own story in mind and draw my own characters and hopefully, develop them completely in the future. And while I'm drawing these characters, I play the songs that fit to their characteristics, like Rock/Symphonic Metal songs.
%AllArtSupport 9. What kind of equipment do you use?
*serafleur Before, I use 4b pencil for sketch, scan it, then color with Photoshop and WACOM Graphire 4 tablet. I started to sketch with the tablet I think this first month of the year.. And then I get used to it
%AllArtSupport 10. Of your own work, which has the most meaning to you and why?
*serafleur White Swan, while drawing this, I feel like I wanted freedom so badly and I wanted to be perfect because of many negative things that's happening to me that time, so this art was the result of my feelings. I also quoted a line from the film Black Swan because it fits.
%AllArtSupport 11. Which are your top 5 Favorite web pages
*serafleur The first is ofcourse, DeviantArt. The rest: twitter, tumblr, facebook and wikipedia.
%AllArtSupport 12. Your Quote?
*serafleur Art is the way to keep ourselves away from the reality.
%AllArtSupport 13. What advice would you give to other Deviants?
*serafleur What matters is the efforts of creating art. Let's always be inspired, practice harder, and enjoy drawing!
%AllArtSupport 14. Is there anything else you would like to add?
*serafleur I would like to say a very big thanks to everyone for visiting my page and my artworks, for the favorites and for the watch! Thank you all!
