We interviewed @inuisdrawing all about their work!
1. What inspires your work?
There are so many things that inspire me, but books, movies, cartoons as well as anime are definitely things that keep me motivated, but I also look up to other artists and their work. Knowing that I can brighten up the days of others by sharing my art definitely warms my heart and I hope that I can inspire others with my art as well.
2. How long have you been creating art?
I feel like drawing has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, but I started uploading little scribbles and doodles to my Instagram back in 2014 and tried out drawing digitally on my phone in 2015. Art has always been a big passion of mine so it just came naturally for me to share it with others!
3. Favorite RWBY character?
That’s really difficult for me to decide; I always find myself loving characters I can relate to and identify with. It’s not a secret that I love the relationship between Blake and Yang, but I also love them as individual characters. Being an ambivert, it’s easy for me to identify with both of them on a different level. Yang is more outgoing and energetic, but she can also be very empathic and caring, while Blake is much more serious and reserved, but also righteous. I think a mix of them both would describe my personality perfectly!
4. Plans for 2022?
I’m aiming to improve my artstyle and to branch out more across and into different mediums, like graphic design. I also want to post my art more frequently and to participate in more challenges and collaborations – saying this makes me so excited to see my art progress at the end of the year!
5. What advice would you give to new artists?
I think every new artist has heard this phrase at least once before, but the more you draw the more you improve! Try out different things or styles, practice with different utensils/brushes or explore other mediums. Look at other artstyles and decide for yourself what you like about them, but don’t compare your art to other artists, just focus on your own progress and journey – plus don’t overwork yourself and take breaks if you feel exhausted or unhappy with your art, you shouldn’t force yourself to draw!
6. Where can people support your work?
You can check out my work on Instagram, Twitter and tumblr, sharing and commenting under my art there always brings a smile to my face. If you want to support me directly however, you’re more than welcome to leave a small tip on my Ko-fi page, or you can consider commissioning me!
