Hello!

Discussion in 'Introductions' started by diaz, Jan 22, 2011.

  1. Hello, I am diaz, an aspiring artist. I currently work for 5 sites, 5 as an artist, 1 as an administrator. You may know me from other pet communities or sites I work for and or play on :) I am a supporter of emoticons and I do my best to not let my army of them rampage. I am obsessed with anime, but not to the roleplaying point ;) I am addicted to pocky (who isn't) ;D

    Well I thin that's it.... If you have any questions or such, you can always email me at diaz30613@gmail.com ;)

  2. Welcome to the community, Diaz! :) How are you doing?
    What pet sites do you work for?
     
  3. Thanks you cpvr! :) Doing quite well, you?
    I work for Solpets, pyropets, devpets, ventris, and a secret site :D
    And I am the administrator of Solpets ;)
     
  4. You're welcome. I'm doing great as well.
    Wow, lots of pet sites. What staff positions do you hold at the others?
    Oh, could you tell us more about Solpets on the boards? Would love to see some updates on it.
     
  5. Good to hear :)
    Yes quite, but I can handle the amount. From Pyro I have not heard from and ventris is going to be on the "downlow" for work, so it is just Solpets, devpets, and the secret site I work for ;) The rest are just artist positions :)

    I would be happy to do so :)
     
  6. Very nice, do you still manage to have a lot of free time for yourself? I bet its pretty tough working for so many pet games.
    How long have you been trying to get ahold of Pyro's staff?
     
  7. Usually the owner would tell me if there would be needed items, so my assumption is that he does not need items *shrugs* And do not see some updates so I would have to ask him through email :)

    Yes, I actually do. Can be stressful sometimes when all sites would like a couple of items, but stressing will not get the problem solved :) Sometimes it can be easy for me such as on one site I do not have a quota as I do voluntary work. So yes, I am actually able to have some free time, but I spend my free time doing more art as I truly want to improve as an artist! ^-^

    [/quote]Oh, are you an artist that is hired based on commissions?

    Of course, you're very passionate about your field of work. How long have you been an artist?
     
  9. Nope, I am a regular artist whom gets accepted through the ways of application ;)

    It would be about 10 months that I have been drawing as of digital arts. For traditional art, I have only pasionately been doing so for over a year. ^-^
     
  10. That's the best way to do it, don't you think? Experience is everything these days.
    What made you decide to start drawing?
     
  11. It is :)
    I live in a family of artist and I was the only one without the talent, I had an extremely creative mind and I had no way of putting it to use. I tried doing writing, which was okay, but it just did not feel right. I started getting interested in anime and attempted to draw somethings. I stopped as I thought I was bad. I then met a friend of mine whom was a very good artist whom drew anime very well. He Inspired me to practice and practice until I got better :) Story was much much longer, but I thought I shall spare you a long written response XD

    [/quote]Who else draws in your family? Also, could you tell us about your friend - who's the good artist? Or you can't tell us? :)
    Do you post your art on DeviantArt?
     
  13. My brothers, and my and mother. Just a cool and awesome real life friend, doesn't even know I work on petsites so will be kind of weired talking about him on here ;P

    I do sometimes, I am diaz-kun.deviantart.com
     
  14. Oh, wow, so did he inspire you to draw during an art class or something?
     
  15. Actually, he inspired me During a Physical Education Class. We became friends over an origami crane he created ;) As I got to know him he started showing me his sketchbook ;)

    [/quote]Very nice. How long was he an artist for? Do you have a sketchbook as well?
     
  17. I believe he has told me ever since he was able to hold a pencil. Along with my other friend, she has a classic anime like style which she has developed ever since she can hold a pencil. I have been told I am a very fast learner as they say in over year, I can compete with their art skill ;)And I have one, and I only have one drawing on it XD
     
  18. I guess its because you learned from the best, eh? Fast learners usually never slow down and keep on learning. :)
    There's no stopping the growth that you're going to endure with your skills.
     
  19. Yup, that is true, And all round also, Been taught digital arts by myself and other petsite artist, and have been taught traditional by my friends. Either way, I still had a destiny for drawing, it just mean I have both in my arsenal ;)
     
  20. That's good though. What do you like to draw the most though?
