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 The Prince (id:Chaos_Cansu) from the Europe and Oceania Region.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
Hello I'm 17 years old and live in Germany. I go to school once a week and hope to someday become a gardener. If I had to describe myself in only three words it would be strong-minded, stubborn and insistent.
What are your interests or hobbies, and how do you spend your free time?
I like to spend time with friends and play sports. I also like to travel to places where I haven't been before. Of course I enjoy drawing too!
Please introduce some of your best Flipnotes, and tell us why you like them.
★ 'Halloween Race' - I like the heated atmosphere in this animation.
★ 'Alien Hunter' - I like how the uniform of the soldier turned out in this Flipnote.
★ 'Part One' - I added some friends to this animation. I'm working on the second part right now.
★ 'Black and Red' - I felt thirsty when I made this.
★ '21.12.2012' - This is quite different from my other Flipnotes. It's a scary one, but I'm pleased with it.
What techniques or skills are you especially good at in your Flipnotes?
I think I'm good at telling stories even if they are short.
What are some techniques or skills that you wish to improve, try, or learn to do in order make your Flipnotes better?
I would like to animate better and make some Flipnotes with speed 6.
Please introduce some of your favorite artists on Flipnote Hatena and tell us why you like them or their Flipnotes.
★ star☆light (id:twenni1) has a really cute drawing style and is also a really supportive friend on Hatena.
★ CoRny!™ (id:witzig) are twin sisters who make Flipnotes together. They make funny stories and use their own characters too.
★ Shira (id:PokemonTrainer) has a unique drawing style. You should check out her battle Flipnote!
★ Qmoe～～ (id:QQmoe) is the friend that I have known the longest on Hatena. She always cheers me up.
I think everyone knows these four great artists, but you should definitely check them out if you are unfamiliar with them:
Of course there are more people I would like to introduce. I recommend you see my favorite creators list.
Is there something you would like to say to the Flipnote Hatena community?
I would like to thank Hatena for this software that makes it possible to make and show animations, and also for the opportunity to be interviewed. Thank you!
