Artist Spotlight: Alex Rosinante
This week we have the Spotlight on Rosinante’s Arts.
Fantasy on the edge of realism mixed with the energy of Anime, Rosinante’s Art’s finds a way to bring a variety of characters to life. Both original and well known.

Exclusive Interview with The Fan’s POV. Rosinante’s Art’s was kind enough to spare some time and have a chat with us at the Fan’s POV last week and we thought it’d be fun to share some highlights that includes both advice for aspiring artists and some even some background info on the artist herself.

Q: Do you have any advice for people that want to get into art? Drawing specifically.

A: My advice is that no matter what age you’re at, middle school or whatever just starting seeing stuff you like. For example when I was younger I would doodle and sketch out cartoon characters. Even if they didn’t look that good, as I got older and with more practice I began listening to critiques more so. Never be afraid to have critique be given to you. Don’t overthink yo much about the critiques either, yes they help but don’t have them weigh you down.

Q:Do you plan on achieving a career in art or is this nothing more than a hobby for you?

A: It was originally a hobby. When I was younger I wanted to be a nurse. It wasn’t until High School when I would draw on myself with Pen and all that people noticed my skill and would talk about how I should be a tattoo artist. It wasn’t a bad idea at the time especially since I didn’t think one could make a career out of art without being considered childish but as I got older I realized the tattoo gig wasn’t for me. Something I would enjoy is being a manga artist, though I got discouraged when people told me it’s not possible since I’m from the U.S. and all but I don’t even care as long as its something fun to think about. As of right now, I would like to be a concept artist, working for different companies and all if they like my art. Having them use it as long as I get the credit of course.

Q: Anything in your art you feel you excel at the most?

A: I feel very comfortable using the traditional drawing style and tools of Pen and Pencil. Especially when it comes to my style of art that is a mix of anime and realism.

Q: If you could meet any artist who would it be?

A: I would love to meet the creator of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Hirohito Araki! I took a lot of inspiration from him and it was how I was able to develop my own style that became a mix of both Anime and Realism. Shout out to the creator of One Piece Eiichiro Oda as well.

Q: Is there a daily routine to your art? Or do you just get inspiration randomly and go to work then and there.

A: It really depends on what I’m doing there will be times where I’m listening to music or just hanging out and then ideas come into my head and I get to work. Other times I’ll be in class and I’ll doodle (which I do NOT recommend doing haha) but there’s no schedule or rhythm to it. I just do it when I can.

Q: Alright and to finish it off I have some nerdy question for you.

Do you prefer Marvel or D.C.?
A: Marvel

Q:Harry Potter or Twilight?

A: Oh Harry Potter! People like twilight?

Q: Anime or Manga?

A: Manga.
