A word with moiraabsinthe
What is your field, and how did you get in?
Well I went to school for Graphic Design, but I've always loved to draw, ever since I was little I was drawing whether it was digital or traditional. I'm now strictly digital, and absolutely love my Wacom.
Where do you want your Journey to lead you?
I am working on making my art into a living. It's been a bit of a bumpy road like many artists experience, but I am constantly honing my craft and wholeheartedly believe I can turn it into something more.
What would you like to achieve within the next year?
Making my art into a full time career.
So far, how have you been developing your skills?
I like to study other people's art, as well as watch LiveStreams because you get a first hand look on their techniques and processes. Practicing, of course, is a big thing, and I try to experiment with different techniques as much as possible.
Where does your motivation come from?
Motivation can be a difficult thing to come by at times. I just have to tell myself that if I want to make it in the art world I have to keep going. There is a sense of accomplishment when you finally get a piece done too, which is a good feeling.
Where do you go when you seek inspiration?
I turn to my music mainly. But other media forms such as television and film inspire me too.
What are some of your favorite artists and genres?
I don't really have any favorite artists, but some of my favorite genres would be gothic and fantasy, and any mixture of the two.
What are some of your favorite writers and books?
As stated before I'm really into the gothic and fantasy genres so I enjoy books like Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles as well as George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. I also absolutely adore William Joyce's Guardians of Childhood series.
What do you listen to?
I enjoy an array of music, from gothic rock to metal (especially symphonic) to industrial (and all its sub-genres) to movie soundtracks and scores and more.
