September 7, 2011: Hatena Featured Artist - Chinshunoyoshida (id:yoshidadada)


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 Chinshunoyoshida (id:yoshidadada) from Japan.

Please tell us about yourself.

Hello everyone. My name is Chinshunoyoshida, which means "Yoshida, a rare type of person", in Japanese. I'm a high school student.

What are your interests or hobbies, and how do you spend your free time?

My main interest is making Flipnotes. I also like to spend my free time relaxing at home, watching movies or playing games with friends.

Please introduce some of your best Flipnotes, and tell us why you like them.

★ "Bubbles" - I made this Flipnote for the "Weekly Topic: Bubbles", and I'm so proud of being featured! The story was made up randomly, and I just kept adding details. I like how it's related to bubbles, which is something that's not really related to octopuses.

★ "Would you like some pudding?" - I made this Flipnote for the "Weekly Topic: Sweets". I wanted to make a happy story, but somehow, it turned out a little malicious in the end. I like how the ant smiles sarcastically.

★ "A Human-like Robot" - This Flipnote took a lot of effort and time, especially coloring in the arms and legs. This takes place in the future when robots have overtaken humans. However, the robots act like us humans (or more like me), and are always doing something that gets them in trouble.

★ Don't Touch that Umbrella!" - For "Weekly Topic: Rain"

★ "Untitled" - For "Weekly Topic: Wings"

★ "Untitled" - For "Weekly Topic: Eggs"

What techniques or skills are you especially good at in your Flipnotes? And what are some techniques or skills that you wish to improve?

I think I'm good at drawing characters and funny facial expressions. I love animating my dummy-looking characters. There are many things I want to improve, such as animating characters running or walking.

Please introduce some of your favorite artists on Flipnote Hatena

★ My favorite artist is definitely Youhei (id:aoyamayouhei). What is great about him is that he has posted so many Flipnotes, and they are ALL good. His Flipnotes are always funny. His work is so inspiring!

Is there something you would like to say to the Flipnote Hatena community?

I'd like to thank you all for your support. I believe your Flipnotes will improve if you have fun while you are creating them. I hope to keep making more and more Flipnotes that everyone can enjoy!
