Anthro Who`s Whoo - little-owlette

Sun Sep 21, 2014, 5:35 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 little-owlette

:iconlawooplz::iconlittle-owlette::iconlittle-owlette::iconlittle-owlette::iconlawooplz:


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I'm Owlette! I'm 23 years old, living in NorthWestern USA. I'm married to a guy I met on Deviantart almost eight years ago, and we're currently living with our two mini Dachshunds and a pet rat named Franklin! I speak English and Dutch, after living for two years in The Netherlands. Most people say I'm an extremely cheerful and upbeat person who never misses a chance to giggle or make a really bad pun. (: I collect owl-related stuff and books.

How long have you been doing art?

I've been drawing since I was in diapers. My parents actually have a really funny story about how I'd draw little stick figures all over my pajamas when I was little! I started doing art professionally when I lived in the Netherlands in 2009. I had a small business license and everything, it was pretty exciting!

When we moved back to the US in 2011, I took a little break from art to focus on my health and to try my hand at a more 'conventional' job. But it wasn't long before I returned to art full time. I've now been working professionally as a self-employed artist in the US for two years.

Aren't I cute? by little-owlette Comfy night in by little-owlette

What brought about your interest into Anthro?

I've always been crazy about animals, and I was an internet nerd from a very early age (unfortunately for me, this was before the internet was cool). I think you can figure things out from there, haha! When I was about ten or eleven years old, I stumbled across some art by the lovely and talented GoldenWolfen. I was immediately in awe of her amazing, detailed art style -- and I was drawn to the strange wolf-people she was always drawing. Pretty soon I was looking for more art like hers, and drawing anthro art of my own!
 

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

I have two fursonas: Eske the owl gryphon, and River the owl. Eske is a fairly old character of mine, she's been around for quite a while now. I created her because I've always had a love for owls -- but I also love those cute kitty paws and ears, and I knew she wouldn't be complete without them!

Much later, I decided to create "River", who is a better representation of myself. Eske still represents a part of me (some people even still call me Eske), but River is my main fursona.

I see you! by little-owlette

Who is your biggest inspiration?

I have three major inspirations in my life. The first is balaa -- her art has always inspired me so deeply. She is by far my favorite artist of all time, and she has been for many years.

The second inspiration of mine is KovoWolf -- she is such a huge part of the anthro community, it's hard to seperate one from the other at times. She has shown an incredible amount of energy and dedication to dA's anthro community, I hope one day to accomplish even a fraction of what she's done.

And lastly, there's no way I could fail to mention my dear husband, Verticae. He's been so supportive and helpful, offering me encouragement and critique whenever I need it. Without him, I would never have had the courage or the means to do art full-time -- in fact, I'm not sure I would even be posting art online without his encouragement.

Where else do you draw your inspiration from?

Other artists! I make a point to browse deviantArt and FurAffinity every single day. I browse new art, check out what's trending, and see what's been uploaded by the people I watch. Looking at everyone else's amazing art never fails to inspire me!

What are you looking to improve in your art?

There are a million different things I could list off, but I'll stick with the main ones! Right now, I'm really trying to work on speed and efficiency -- I can be a really slow artist at times, and it drives me crazy! I'm also currently trying to work on anatomy of the human body, and bold/interesting lighting techniques.

When do find yourself being the most creative?

Usually at night, right before bed. That's when I'm most comfortable, and it's when I'm not freaking out about stuff that still needs to be done. I like to settle down for a few hours of drawing before settling into bed, and that's definitely when I'm feeling my most creative.

What are your future aspirations for your work?

I would really love to see some of my art in print! I've had a few things printed, and it's been so cool to see. I would love to have more physical copies of my art!

How do you battle Art Block?

I try not to think about it. Usually the more I focus on it, the tougher it is to get rid of. I try to distract myself a little -- watch a show, listen to music -- and just force myself to draw while I do it. Usually that helps me get into the zone and just get lost in making art! It helps that I always have a bunch of art at varying stages of completion, so I can work on whatever I feel like.

Any words of advice for other artists?

Draw something every day, and comment on art every day. Drawing every day is such an important habit to have -- there's no better way to improve! Commenting on other people's art is also extremely important. It's good to encourage your fellow artists and keep the art community alive and thriving.

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

I LOVE cheesecake! I cannot describe in words how deep my love for cheesecake goes...

LOL thanks for the llama!

I was just lookin' at your beautiful artwork when I saw that our fursonas (I'm guessing Pixl is your fursona) have the same name XD
