CHAMPION INTERVIEW # 5 - Swtalmnd!
We welcome back Games Veteran of two previous Art Games, one Fic Games, and our 2008 graphics queen, for her fourth medal round:
Your Name: swtalmnd
Your Team: Phoenix
Archive: The Bunny Farm
1. Which HP character gives you the most trouble to draw?
All the humans -- the Squid's the easiest! ~=o>
2. What was the first fandom you ever produced art for?
Smallville. It's tragic how it was cancelled after only one season, isn't it? Just leave me to my delusions, please.
3. Has your experience in fandom changed the way you do art? How?
I make art more often because of fandom, and I certainly draw more porn. It's also helped me to get into new media, like Painter.
4. In a Snape/Harry/Phoenix cage match, who wins?
Harry, out of sheer blind luck. And then he and Snape would shag in the ashes, and scar the poor rebirthing phoenix for its next life.
5. What are your favourite mediums to work with?
I love oil paints, and I wish I could do another one for the Games this year, but I haven't the time nor the wall space.
6. What do you consider your strongest talent? Your weakest?
I think my strongest talent is with color, and my weakest with figures. But using reference photos and models helps that immensely.
7. Is there a piece of art that you think is your absolute best so far? Would you link it for us?
My piece for last year's Games, Unbound by Gravity.
8. What (or who) inspires you in Fandom?
I definitely stay in fandom because of the community of awesome people. They inspire me to keep writing and making fan art when I would otherwise not bother.
9. Fanfic writers often say the best compliment they can get for their stories is unsolicited fanart. What would you consider the highest form of compliment for your fanart?
Seeing it at a con, plastered across someone's breasts.
10. Are you excited about being in the Games this year?
Thank you, swtalmnd! Stay tuned for more Champion Interviews, and some Opening Games surprises!
