September 28, 2011: Hatena Featured Artist - Pod'Poulet (id:Peau-d-poulet)


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 Pod'Poulet (id:Peau-d-poulet) from the Europe and Oceania region.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hello everyone! My name is Peau d'Poulet. I am 17 years old and living in Paris. I consider myself to be a real anime geek! :D I love watching movies in my bed with both a bucket of sugared popcorn and salted popcorn to keep me company. I don't really like the sun or the heat, and I prefer staying inside the house on cold rainy days.

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

I like to go to the movies when I'm free. My favorites are science fiction films. On the weekends I read comic books, take pictures or just sleep. I also like to play video games, spend time on my computer, and to draw Flipnotes with my Nintendo DSi. I'm passionate about art, and sometimes I spend all day at a museum. I always enjoy listening to classical music too.

Please introduce some of your best Flipnotes

★ "Run Test" - A nice running sequence with a funny character and original sound effects.

★ "What There Is Inside" - This was featured in the Flipnote Hatena Weekly News as Flipnote of the Week.

★ "Hold Your Breath" - The girl's face transforms nicely as she hold her breathe.

★ "MASHI EAT" - This animation was created by combining images from the Nintendo DSi camera with drawings.

★ "Mustache" - I love my mustache, but... I'm a girl!

What techniques or skills are you especially good at in your Flipnotes, and how would you like to improve?

I love inventing stories, and creating my own original characters. I think I'm good at making different types of animations - mostly funny, strange, and sometime sad. I'm really good at illustration, especially drawing beautiful girl characters.

I'd like to become better at animating. In my next Flipnotes I will try to improve the movements.
