Interview with Mooching-Leech

Sat Nov 24, 2012, 11:43 AM by toad1:icontoad1:
1. Why do you draw in a colorful anime style? What about that style appeals to you?

I think it's safe to assume I am a huge Anime/Manga fan X) Growing up I watched a lot of Anime and I always noticed how colorful it was. Not just speaking about colors but the characters themselves. Their eyes, their hair, their personality, it was something very different from what I was use to seeing in other cartoons and I believe it was because of that that I decided to draw in this style.

2. What is your favorite MCR-related drawing in your gallery and why? Also, do you have any interesting stories about your art?

Right now my favorite is "I'm Still Here." It was my first time using a whole new program that is still alien to me but the whole being of the drawing spoke a lot to me. I like to believe that there's a part of us from the past that never dies or is fighting to stay alive and I think Black Parade Gerard was a great example for this.

3. Why is Frerard your favorite subject matter?

Couples are one of my favorite things to draw but to be honest, it's really hard unless they have great chemistry. (it can determine the overall atmosphere of the drawing.) Gerard and Frank are a great example so it's easier to cross lines and draw Frerard this way.

I also like it. A lot.

4. What advice would you give to other artists?

Challenge everything but always have fun with it!


5. How does MCR inspire/influence you (besides often being the subject?) What else inspires you?

MCR Inspires me in every way. Through their music, costumes, interviews ect. but what inspires me the most is the outdoors. I love venturing off to the city whenever I get the chance to and explore my surroundings: The old buildings, the pier, Chinatown, the subway, the ghetto, Castro.
It distracts me from my real life outside the city and I get the sudden urge to draw everything and everyone there and its always a good feeling.


6. What is your creative process like?

I just let my mind go. Sometimes I type random things, look at photographs I took, listen to music, ect. Dreams help a lot too.
After that, I get the "AHA!" and start doodling on my sketchbook. I don't always get it the first time so I leave it off for a while and come back to the drawing to see if it needs a change. I usually make little to drastic changes to a sketch and when I am satisfied, I go on with inking and finally coloring.

7. Most fanarts skip on the backgrounds, but you often include them in your art. What do they add to your drawings?

I like showing everyone everything I see through my drawings and I mean everything. If a certain drawing of mine didn't have a background, it'd be incomplete like I'm not telling the whole story. Even though the main focus is not the background (for most drawings), it helps a lot if you want to get your point across without saying much. I guess that's what adds to my drawings... less words to say. xD

8. What is your favorite thing about drawing? What is your least favorite?

My favorite thing about drawing is that there as so many different styles to draw in and I hope to try all of them at least once. My least favorite is probably being inspired at 3:30 in the morning but not have the energy to create anything.
