February 20, 2013: Hatena Featured Artist - Nagachon (id:NNagano)


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 Nagachon (id:NNagano) from Japan.

Please tell us a little about yourself.

My nickname is Nagachon, which my friend Manami chose for me.

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

I like taking care of my pet fish and working in my garden. I also enjoy watching television.

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

★ "Pizza" - This was based on a previous animation I made. I posted this for Weekly Topic: Pizza.

★ I created this animation for Weekly Topic: Circles, Triangles & Squares.

★ "Untitled"

★ "Earthenware Pot" - Keep staring at the steam as it rises, and you might see something special.

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

I am good at line drawings, tracing and creating special effects.

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

I am not very good at communicating with other users. For this reason it is hard for me to take part in group created animations. I sometimes feel troubled by this, so it makes me happy when other people notice my animations or make spin-offs from them.

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

Arigatou (id:azinohiraki300) - I am fascinated by the stylistic drawings and music this creator makes.

Tako Death (id:rabbit_thankyou) - I never get tired of the storybook-like, relaxing animations by this creator.

HII (id:HII) - This creator makes drawings that often surprise me.

Kame✜Hayato (id:kame8810) - This creator is good at showing the beauty of everyday things.

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