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 Light (id:light3190) from the Americas Region.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

Hello, I'm a 16 year old student originally from North Carolina, U.S.A.

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

One of my favorite things to do is drawing -- it is one thing I can't live without. I also love to go to the park and hang out with friends.

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

★ I like the 3D effect in this Flipnote.

★ I like the humor and the zoom in effect in this Flipnote.

★ The little fish in this Flipnote is both friendly and brave.

★ In this Flipnote I made use of the camera, which is something I don't usually do.

★ I animated the cute ice cube well, especially how he transforms.

★ I made this Flipnote to test out the tools in Flipnote Studio. I like it because it came out smooth.

What techniques or skills are you especially good at in your Flipnotes?

I don't really have a style, and I like to have a variety of choices when it comes to drawing and animating. The kinds of Flipnotes that I like to animate are stickfights. Stickfights look simple to animate but in reality they are as complicated as anything else.

What are some techniques or skills that you wish to improve, try, or learn to do in order make your Flipnotes better?

I want to draw more realistically, and add shading to my drawings. I also hope to learn to use perspective better.

Please introduce some of your favorite artists on Flipnote Hatena and tell us why you like them or their Flipnotes.

Darkhart (id:Darkhart) has amazing talent.

★ You can really see the dedication cameron (id:thunda_red) puts into all his Flipnotes.
