Castlevania LOS2 – Prince of Darkness
by Vrihedd


Q1: When did you start making art?
When I was a middle school pupil, it was pencil sketches everywhere in my school stuff. But seriously I start making art in 2009, when I got my first graphic tablet.

Q2: What does inspire you?
Mostly video games and books, I really love to discover universes that was made by other artists. Sometimes I find interesting things around me, or I see inspiring dream.

Q3: What are your techniques?
Now it’s fully digital, I almost stopped to draw pencil sketches. All my works are made in Photoshop.

Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
It depends on my mood at moment, when I start a new piece. I always try to make my works emotional, and often it’s some sad emotions, I even don’t know why this happens, because I don’t feel sad by myself 🙂

Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I think it’s dark cyan color, because it makes me feel calm and reflective. But I also love a color of sunset, I hope to use it more in my future works.

Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
I think I need to improve everything about my work, especially my human anatomy and environment drawing skills.

Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
Yes, now I’m experimenting with some animation piece.

Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of Vrihedd.
Reflective, Introverted, Inspired

Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
The left one HERE. I drew him right when I got my tablet in 2009, and someday I desided to redraw him once in every year to see, how my skills improved. This year’s drawing will be made in summer.

Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
Everything, I learned a lot of new things for me, some rules, met nice teachers and so on.

Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
Both of it, every artist lives to create his own worlds.
