Cute Digital Art by Ureshii Chan- an interview series on Opinion9.com

Hi everyone! Today on the blog, we have Ureshii Chan sharing more about her art process. I really love the cute and happy elements in her work! Read on to know more..

Please tell me a little bit about yourself. 
Hello, I’m an 18 year old girl who loves to draw. I am a student in my final year of school, with mainly studies about economics and business management. Unlike my studies, art has always been a way for me to relax. I love colors and patterns, and art in my opinion is a great way to express it ^^

I love your cute drawings! Do you plan themes/topics/characters or is the process more spontaneous?
Thank you so much, it makes me feel very happy ^o^
Sometimes I try to plan, but most often the process is spontaneous and the drawing usually changes while I draw.

How do you make your drawings? 
To me sketching is a big part, when it comes to art I don’t focus on making all the proportions or anatomy correct – but I like to make a neat and complete sketch to easy fineline it.

Colors is my favorite thing. I try to add as much color I can, but still making it soft and pleasant to look at.

Whenever I draw a character I like giving them a smiling face, and of course lots of colors and cute details.

What was the hardest (and easiest) part while drawing?
Sometimes I can find it difficult to make the art look like the image I had in my head, my art usually doesn’t turn out as I first thought it would ^^;

To me to do lineart is the easiest.

What makes you the happiest in your creative process?
Everything makes me happy! ^o^

But to pick something specific, I feel very happy when I do the coloring because colors makes me happy.

Could you give us a glimpse in a typical day in your life? 
My typical day I wake up fairly early, I’d have a cup of tea and if it’s good weather I go for a walk. I also enjoy spending time getting ready.

In school I have long breaks in my schedule, lucky the school is located close to malls and shopping areas so I spend a lot of time around shops, always looking for new inspiration for drawing (as well as searching for discount items ^^ ).

Back home I do those regular things like cleaning, laundry and preparing dinner.

During the evening the best thing I know is to relax with a cup of tea and spending time drawing. I tend to stay up way too late drawing because when I start drawing, it feels like time vanishes.

Where do you see yourself in a few years?

In a few years first of all I have graduated school, hopefully I have a job that I enjoy and I hope to have travelled and been able to visit many exciting places.

I see myself in an own apartment with a special area just for art and crafting time. In a few years I wish I have even more time for doing art ^^

Another dream is that in a few years I still will be surrounded by many friends, and maybe a family of my own.

What motivates /inspires you the most?

Clothes or fabric that has lots of colors and patterns inspire me a lot. I also get inspired by other artists, friends and people around me.

What do you do in your free time (when not working on your art)?

       I love to listen to people’s stories and memories. To hear about people’s lives can be exciting and rewarding, there is always something you can learn. Some things I also love are baking and cooking, and hairstyling is another thing I like to spend time doing.
