Feb. 16, 2011: Hatena Featured Artist: SuperCesco (id:SuperCesco)


Welcome to the Hatena Featured Artist section of our blog, where we introduce Flipnote creators from around the world.

We post the Hatena Featured Artist every week on Wednesday, and hope to introduce a variety of different artists that will inspire and entertain you.

Be sure to check here every week to see some of the most amazing artists on Flipnote Hatena. Maybe we'll even feature you someday!

Today's Hatena Featured Artist is SuperCesco (id:SuperCesco) from the Europe and Oceania region.

★ "SnowFlakes"

How do you get ideas for your Flipnotes, and how long does it usually take you to create them?

I simply try to do something original; I draw the more bizarre things that come to my mind when I read the weekly topic, or I try to take things from real life and make them funny or ironic.

I like to include something I saw in real life my Flipnotes. Usually it takes me 3-4 hours to draw a Flipnote, but I'm always not satisfied and I tend to give up so often. I really have to change my attitude!

★ "L'Alfabeto Italiano"

What hobbies or interests do you have (besides making Flipnotes)?

I like videogames, books, comics... the usual stuff. I really love theater and my favorite hobby is to draw the characters from dramas in "manga" style.

Who are some of your favorite creators on Flipnote Hatena and why?

I really love the Flipnotes by MdM (id:MdMbunny), he's really talented! I like the cuteness of the drawings in Chiara's (id:Vlady) Flipnotes too. I also like the style of ELEONORA's (id:eleonora) Flipnotes.

★ "Cippirimerlo 2"

Do you have any advice or tips for other Flipnote creators about how they can improve their skills?

Flipnote Studio is a blank space in which we can create every anything we can imagine: My advice to you is to "create" and don't be afraid to "exaggerate"!

★ "Bibo's Adventure 9"

What kind of Flipnotes would you like to create in the future? Are there any new things you would like to try?

I have so many ideas to accomplish. Making more "Bibo's Adventures" Flipnotes is my priority right now, but I also want to create a character that could represent me as a Flipnote author (like MdM's bunny). I would also like to create a Flipnote saga divided into episodes.

What are some additional features that you would like to have added to Flipnote Studio and/or Flipnote Hatena?

The only thing I don't like about Flipnote Studio is the lack of colors. It would really help to simply have one color more -- yellow.

I would also like a rule on Flipnote Hatena that would require more modifications of spin-offs before they can be reposted. I see so many authors take advantage of someone else's talent and that really upsets me!
