The Ant and the Tails - Cat by Fluna
The Ant and the Tails - Cat
I could have sworn I posted it already, but apparently it was all a dream!

Among the many illustrations I did this one, along with the peacock one, is one of my favourites uwu

Colored pencil, markers, and Photoshop
TSR - Only once more by Fluna
TSR - Only once more
Class exercise in which we had to take an existing composition (based around triangles and squares to build the scene) and draw our take. Afterwards we had to draw the same characters using a different composition.

I was really blocked, I didn't know what to draw for the existing composition... in the end of course I decided to go with the White Kingdom so I can flesh them out better (mostly the King). The coloring and shading isn't top notch, but eh... what mattered was the composition.

TLDR; have a lighthearted scene of Philippe with the pawns and the King 8'D. The Sharing Room isn't all grey, I just felt like playing with greys and a bit of colour just like back in TheGamesOCT (I re-read my entry a few days ago).

The Sharing Room and The White Kingdom belong to me
TSR - White Kingdom propaganda by Fluna
TSR - White Kingdom propaganda
A school assignment. We had to draw a propaganda like illustration based on the composition of this one.

The most militarized thing I have in my mind are the White and Black kingdoms, and since I'm still bouncing the Black Kingdom's designs I went for propaganda for the White Kingdom.

Say hi to Master, their king 8'D (whose face gave me a lot of trouble to figure out, the only thing I knew for sure was how his eyes would look like XD) and Ring, their Queen!

 Master - the King
 Ring - the Queen
 Philippe - the Bishop
 Pawns 1-8 (only their silhouette and numbers)
 Zun and Zos - the Knights (in Spanish this piece is called "Horse")
 T.T (TowerTiger) and TowerLion - Towers
The Ant and the Tails - Peacock by Fluna
The Ant and the Tails - Peacock
This is a double page illustration for a story about an ant who gets lost by hopping from an animal's tail to another. Said project is part of my practicum (internship in which you don't get paid a thing 8'D ) and I'm quite excited about it... mostly because we're given a lot of freedom.

It took many hours of testing the best way to approach how I wanted this illustration done (since I had really clear on my mind how the final outcome had to look like), in the end I opted for hand drawn pieces and composed later on Photoshop... not something I usually do but I'm really proud of the result 8D. Now I wonder which illustration I'll tackle next...

Tools: Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, Tiger alcohol markers, lead pencil, Photoshop.
School - Pencil surrealist portrait by Fluna
School - Pencil surrealist portrait
Phew, hello everyone!

This was a school project that took me 8 hours, we had to work after a photo reference of outselves and add to it something that can't be quite real... in my case a volcanic eruption! If you're wondering why, well, my real name is Etna (it means fire in hebrew), my mom named me after a volcano c:

I know the file is really small (it's a photo with my phone), I'll update it when I get to scan the project (currently in my teacher's hands 8'D ). When I started it I was convinced I wouldn't be able to deliver I good result, so I must say I'm so frigging surprised and proud I was able to!

Tools: pencils of different hardnesses (2H, HB, B, 2B, 4B), eraser, a good paper (forgot the brand).
How long have you been on DeviantArt?
According to my profile information, I've been a member since April 20th, 2006, making it 9 years here!

What does your username mean?
Fluna comes from "Fox" and "Luna" and it was the name of a character of mine coughkindaselfinsertofastoryofminecough; of course I ripped the name away from her and now it's mine (don't worry, I gave her a new one XD ).

Describe yourself in three words.

According to DarkKitsunegirl : loyal, artist, trooper (I suck at describing myself if you didn't know by now XD ).

Are you left or right handed?

Lefty powered here! 8U

What was your first deviation?

Trainers from my own region by Fluna
I wish this wasn't the first thing I posted oh my gosh the colours are hideous Dx!! Oh well, we all start somewhere. In other to cleanse your eyeballs, here, enjoy my second ever deviation:

Ruby-Saphire Legendary Place by Fluna

What is your favourite type of art to create?

Good question... I'd say illustrations whether they are original or fanart, traditional or digital. Of course I tend to lean more towards digital mostly because I spent most of my time on my computer and I don't have room on my desk to work with pencils (ah man I miss pencils... I need to get back to using them).

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Not an art style, but I'd love to instantly master drawing cool bgs I have in mind... like to replicate them in all detail possible without having to struggle. I've come a long way during these 9 years, I used to have a great hatred towards backgrounds now I can tolerate them and sometimes even have fun with them.

What was your first favourite?

Let's see what I first faved back then...

sunset by mightyflup
It's still a really nice picture and I'd fav it again now. Good job me from 9 years ago, I see our tastes aren't all that different. 

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

Quite sure is Pokémon fanart with a side of friend's OCs (love me some OCs).

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Uhhhhh... UUUHHHHHHH.... I don't know D: there are a lot of artists I know for various reasons--- oh look another question down below 8'D

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

All my friends, whether I talk to them a lot or once in a while *makes heart with hands* though I'm thankful to have met with a good bunch of them such as isouru, Siplick, EVANGELION-02, rtres, sky665, carmendee, DarkKitsunegirl, GNZG, Inokoo, Dansome0203, Tuz-oh, and more! Wow I didn't realise how many of you guys I had managed to meet so far with ;3; <3

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

I'm sorry man, I know your inbox must be flooded by notifications BUT IT'S YOUR FAULT I FOUND OCTS. Not like you knew me back then or anything, but finding your animation for EZ's finale on the frontpage was how I learnt about OCTs on the first place, and thanks to that and wanting to join one myself (and auditioning for a whole bunch of them in the span on 6 months) I met with really good friends over the chatrooms, one of them being DarkKitsunegirl who is now sitting in my livingroom c:

After the ramble, Unknown-person is who collaretally impacted my life the most.

What are your preferred tools to create art?

Most convenient: Wacom Bamboo tablet, Photoshop and PaintTool SAI.
Most soothing: pencil, inking pens, colored pencils.

I also like a lot to use SuperSculpey to model stuff and from time to time to sew up plushes and stuff.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

My room with my headphones on while playing over and over the same song / music album (according to a teacher of mine, the replaying of a song / album over and over serves as a sort of mantra to zone out and get to my creative place).

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
I have two actually both of them related to EscapeFromNevara's chatroom (the first OCT I tried for that wasn't Pokémon related).
I remember going to the chatroom and see everyone happily chatting and welcoming anyone who decided to land in there (werewolfmali was the first one to welcome me) and I kept seeing everyone say "wb" whenever someone got back to the chatroom. Mind you back then my English wasn't espectacular and even less when it came to English abbreviations and I kept wondering "why is everyone saying "Warner Bros" when someone gets back in?", I eventually sucked it up and asked what it was and because of my original misunderstanding my friend PinkWolf and I say "Warner" to eachother when we get back to our chatting.

The second one was also in that chatroom, I was working on my audition and I couldn't figure Flash buttons out (it was a quite experimental audition for me) so knowing the deadline was getting closer and closer I asked for help on the chatroom; to my surprise Zeurel was there and told me to add him on MSN (oh my gosh MSN talk about a flash from the past) so he'd be able to help me. I had a minipanic scare right there since I didn't realise he was on the chatroom (along with Unknown he was one of the cool animators on the OCT circuit I knew off and I was amazed at by how they managed to make characters move and speak). Hadn't I carelessly asked for help I'd have never got around chatting to him XD (well... maybe eventually just like how it happened with a few other of my friends such as Overshadowed thanks to VikingMera pushing us to stop being nerds chatting through dA notes).

Happy birthday dA! Without you my world wouldn't have had expanded the way it did!
