Anthro Who's Whoo - Rainbow-Foxy

Sat Jul 19, 2014, 12:09 PM

#AnthroCommunity is quite large and always growing. It's easy to feel lost in the crowd so let's bring some of you out of the shuffle and share some spotlight. Beginners, hobbyists and professionals are all invited to share the glory. Meet someone new!

Today we introduce to you Rainbow-Foxy


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Hi, I go by Foxy and I am 16 years old. I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, and immigrated to the US in 2000 about a week before my second birthday. I am a full time student in high school, and generally have more ideas for art than actual time to draw. I enjoy drawing, listening to music, and spending time with friends. I aspire to pursue art as a career, and am trying my hardest to improve and get better until then. Although my gallery is mostly anthro work, I do a very wide range of arts, including traditional work which I do not post in my gallery. I am fluent in two languages, English and Bulgarian, and I am currently learning (and fairly decent, I hope) at Spanish. I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends.

How long have you been doing art?

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember; I have always enjoyed it as a small child, and have always been dabbling in art. I did not become serious in pursuing art as a career or really doing art until recently though, so I have technically been seriously doing art for about three or four years now.

What brought about your interest into Anthro?

I have always very much enjoyed drawing animals, and watching cartoons as a small child, and I think what initially sparked my interest in anthros was animations such as Robin Hood, or Bambi and The Fox and the Hound. I was mesmerized by the thought of animals that could talk and had feelings and lives just like us. I always loved the subject matter, but it was only a few years back that I started trying to draw anthros and furries.

Do you have a fursona or favourite character? If so, what inspired it?

Albeit poorly drawn, here are my reference sheets for my fursona, Foxy. These are always slapped together quickly for the sake of having a reference sheet!

Foxy was a character that was built up over time. Her inspiration derives from my personality and what I am like. The black and white markings are representative of what is posed outside for others to see: relatively dull, reserved, conservative. The rainbow hair and tail represents what I am really like: colorful, varied, strange, etc. My first initial "fursona" was a white wolf with magical powers, and that slowly changed over the course of a couple years until she turned into what she is today,a fennec like fox thing with a big rainbow tail.

Who is your biggest inspiration?

I am inspired by a huge variety of people, some which used to be idols, some which still are. Ultimately, by things I saw other people were capable of creating and made me want to aspire to accomplish something similar, too. :iconakreon: and :iconvener: were always huge inspirations to me, along with :icontamberella: and :iconshadow-wolf: and ESPECIALLY Vanrid on FurAffinity.

Where else do you draw your inspiration from?

Generally things I see. Movies. Aesthetically pleasing pictures. Music. Movies are a big one though. If I watch a movie I really like, I get all amped up to draw! Really good songs can also stir ideas and emotions to create art. Nature and the world around ma can be a great source of inspiration, too.

What are you looking to improve in your art?

Everything. I am absolutely nowhere near perfect, and I want to improve to a point that I reach a professional level of art. That is my goal. It will take a lot of effort and work and will be really hard, but I really want to accomplish a super high level of art. Currently though, I think I need to work on anatomy, posing, and shading.

When do find yourself being the most creative?

Considering it is where I do a lot of my digital art, I would say at home, in my room at my computer. I think though, to be honest, I am most creative when taking long walks through nature, or engaging in something such as reading a very good piece of literature, or watching a movie, since I find that at those times, I get the most new ideas.

What are your future aspirations for your work?

I aspire to be a well known artist and to professionally engage in the arts as a career. Currently, I just wish I had as many watchers and received as much recognition as some of my friends on here. I have friends that have been on devaintArt for half the time I have, yet have already broken the 3,000 watcher mark. I feel as though if I had more viewers, I would be more well known and receive better feedback on my work which would help me improve.

What are your future aspirations for your work?

I hope to one day create a story using my characters that people would love to get engaged in, or better yet relate to. I've started writing some of my own stories, however I've held back on submitting them here because I'm aware people don't watch me for literature. Most people I've spoken too wont even read anything 4 lines long, which is very depressing to me.
If possible I'd like to create my stories using comics or even animation, but that's a dream quite far in the future I believe.

How do you battle Art Block?

Thats a hard one. If suffering with really bad art block, everything I try to draw makes me angry, so nothing really gets done. I could have GREAT ideas, but I just can't draw them. Then other times, I can draw really well, but have no good ideas. In which case, if everything is just coming out ugly, I go goof around with traditional art materials and make abstract work where it doesn't matter if you mess something up. If I simply have no good ideas, I either watch movies or listen to music to get inspired, or look at photos and conduct art studies. Ultimately, you just need to keep a level head and try not to get too upset if you are having trouble drawing.

Any words of advice for other artists?

Don't draw for others. Draw for yourself. Draw because it makes you happy, not because some beggar online wants you to draw their sparkle dog. Don't buckle under the pressure you may come by. Always remember to chase your dreams. Draw what you want and enjoy what you draw. No one is born an artist, so always remember to practice and to not give up. But really though. Practice, practice, practice.

One last thing. Tell us something completely random about yourself!

My favorite color is green and I have a fat pet rat names Rusko who hates baths.
