The Absurd Spot

By Thiefoworld and his +1

Before we get into the hardcore news selling, we sent Thiefoworld, one of our interviewers, on a quest; to find a senior member to do an interesting interview full of useful facts and share the knowledge with the community... unfortunately for us, this is all we have:

:iconmirz123: Mirz123
Do you have an invisible friend? What do they look like?
They? That's suggesting more than one. How'd you know? :paranoid:

If you could change gender at will *Like a super power or by magic* Would you and why?
Nope. I like my boobs, thank you very much. :D

What's behind you at this exact moment?
My cat who is sleeping perilously perched on the back of my computer chair

Do you have another browser tab open? What's in the other tab(s)?
AgentRansack, my paint and animation programs, and about 5 instances of notepad (which I use way too much).

If you could dye your hair any color you ever wanted, what color would it be?
I'd totally go pink and blue. Totally.

The Senior Photo Album

Welcome to the Senior Photo Album, brought to you in part by Endorell-Taelos and exarobibliologist, along with the artists we are showcasing in this article.
Would you like to see something particular from the Senior Photo Album? Got an idea for a theme, or a suggestion for a future Photo Album? Send a note to Endorell-Taelos with the Subject "Senior Photo Album Suggestion"
We conducted an interview with Si3art, a fantasy artist who get inspiration from "from pretty much everywhere: mythology and legends, movies, music" and likes putting lots of time, effort and detail in her work.

Winter by Si3art  Summer by Si3art  Autumn by Si3art
She always carries around a sketchbook with her in case she has an idea. She describes her art "romantic, over detailed and even a bit kitschy at times... I love painting in many, many layers, splattering, adding textures to painted surfaces and I often use digital painting tutorials as references when painting traditionally." She says that's "just the way I like it."
We like it that way too!

:bulletblue: Thiefoworld's An Absurd Interview with catluvr2, An Absurd Interview with MidnightExigent

Welcome back to the Senior Photo Album!

Si3art's favorite picture is at the beginning of the above row of thumbs. "This is one of the few paintings Ive grown to love. I knew it was going to turn out amazing when I finshed the sketch and got the first layer of blue tones on the canvas. I love every detail about it."

R053 by Si3art   Two Of a Kind by Si3art  Lost and Forgotten by Si3art
Before joining dA, Si3art described herself as a crafter. After she joined deviantART she "seriously started to practice more traditional art. I was just so stunned with dA that I felt the urge to start drawing/painting myself. Thats when I realised that painting is what I really love to do. Now after these 3 magical years of deviantart, I would describe myself as an tradional artist." She still holds on to her roots though by being a "multitasker" who also "designs and sews clothing".

To other artists, Si3art advises:

Dance with Death by Si3art  Brotherhood by Si3art  Hold On by Si3art
"Practice. A LOT. Try to draw every day, even if its just a doodle. Art isn't like learning to ride a bike and then guess you will be good at it for all your life. No, you need to practice. The best thing for traditional art would be to try coping photos, and especially for a beginner, always use references. Draw from a reference a few times and then without one. In time "the right lines" will get memorized and you will be able to draw perfectly. As they say- "Practice makes perfect""
