A word with Ronochromatic
What is your field, and how did you get in?
I'm mostly a digital artist and graphic designer, but I also dabble in pixel art and am learning animation. I've been making sprites and sprite animation for over a decade, so that eventually transitioned to hand drawn artwork.
Where do you want your Journey to lead you?
I could see myself working in graphic design, character design, character animation, 2D animation, or print design. Ultimately I'll end up wherever God wants me.
What would you like to achieve within the next year?
I would like to have the knowledge and drive to complete a fully animated shortfilm.
So far, how have you been developing your skills?
Off and on. Lately I've been working at a print designer which has helped my efficiency, and am teaching myself animation.
Where does your motivation come from?
In the past is was probably from the comments and critiques I'd get from the various forums I used to go to, but it's been a while since I've gotten any large amount of feedback, so I run on the anticipation of having a great looking final product.
Where do you go when you seek inspiration?
Many times my inspiration comes from videogames and music. Sometimes it'll come from movies, especially traditionally animated ones. Ratatoulli, The Emperor's New Groove, and The Secret of NIHM all come to mind.
What are some of your favorite artists and genres?
Disney's classic animators, escher, and Don Bluth's work are astounding, among other miscellaneous friends I've met over the years. I like colorful landscape paintings, abstract art, and anyone who can take simple designs and make them believable.
What are some of your favorite writers and books?
I don't really read many books, but my favorite books include The Bible, Bridge Over The River Kwai, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, and C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity.
What do you listen to?
A strange combination of electronic, classic rock, and orchestreal music. Lots of videogame remixes of various genres, mostly from OCRemix. I'm also a fan of the Mannheim Steamroller. Newsboys, King's Kolidescope, Wolfgun, and most Christmas music.
What are some of your favorite movies and filmmakers?
Disney/Pixar, Don Bluth, Illumination, Marvel, and Dreamworks. Favorite movies include Ratatoulli, The Avengers, The Iron Giant, The Secret of NIHM, The Emperor's New Groove, The Prince of Egypt, The Great Mouse Detective, & How To Train Your Dragon.
What is your favorite website?
Twitter for small talk, Reddit for cheap gags, and Youtube for kicks. I also frequent ScrewAttack.com for their special brand of gaming news and insanity.
