Today we introduce to you anbumsw
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm an anthro/manga artist. I enjoy creating all sorts of characters, and I love writing about them.
How long have you been doing art?
About 9 years now.
What brought about your interest into Anthro?
I really like the expressiveness and style of Anthro art. Drawing anthro characters allowed me to get more creative with my characters' design, coloring, and emotions. Its a really fun style to work with.
Do you have a fursona or favourite character? If so, what inspired it?
My fursona is Anbu the White Wolf. He was inspired from Manga and Anime and my favorite book series Night Angel by Brent Weeks.
Who is your biggest inspiration?
Where else do you draw your inspiration from?
Anime, Manga, video games, books. Anything involving interesting characters or cool works of art, really spark my imagination.
What are you looking to improve in your art?
Drawing different poses and proportions.
When do find yourself being the most creative?
Usually in the mornings. Just need a sketchbook and a pencil and I'm ready to go.
What are your future aspirations for your work?
I hope to use the characters I've created to create some kind of story or comic.
How do you battle Art Block?
Listen to a good song or look at art references or other artists. Sometimes simply doodling randomly helps.
Any words of advice for other artists?
Work hard at doing something you love, in return you'll get better.
One last thing. Tell us something completely random about yourself!
I enjoy writing poetry in my spare time.
