Koinup Interviews: the dark sims visions of Violentdoll

Dear readers,
we are starting a new community project, The Koinup Interviews.
The aim of the project is to enlighten the works of the coolest, most active and applauded Koinup members. Each week we will publish one or two interviews and we will give avatar artists, virtual worlds photographers, metaverse explorers the opportunity to express their ideas, showcase their works, announce their projects!

The first artist we interviewed is Violentdoll, a long time Koinup member using The Sims as her favorite art platform. She has vivid, dark and literary visions.

Here's the Interview

Q: When you're creating new artworks, where do you draw ideas and inspiration from?

A: Usually I found my inspiration from different things. Sometimes from a vision I got in my mind, or from other pictures I have found online, that have something to inspire me. Of course, I never copy all the pic, but I only take some ideas or concepts, but my major inspirations come from music: usually I've been inspired by the lirycs and what the melody suggest me.

Miss Self Destruct
Q:What advice would you give to newcomers and beginners with The Sims Art and photography

A: I don't think to be so expert to dispense advices, I just want to say that the most important is to have fun, while creating and improving artistically. Follow your ideas and insist with your art also if you can't find an initial consensus

Q: What are you favourite tools for editing? Is there some cool secret about editing you'd love share with friends

A: I don't have a lot of secrets, but I often use some tools as Blur matched with Soft light. Pictures comes more soft and shiny and I think they're more pleasant to look at. But, it always depends from the work I want to do.

Q: Which are your fav works on Koinup and why you love them?

A: My God! My favourite Koin-up works are too much! But I can say that there are some artists I particulary love: Sour Tea, Magggg, Kady, MedeAthena, Kira87...and many more, but these are the people that have impressed the most.
I really consider them artists. But there are really too much good artists and pictures in the KoinUp Community, too much to be resumed here.

Q: Which Koinup artists you should recommended for the next Koinup Interview

A:Obviously you need to interview the artists I've named before, they all deserve to be known and loved for their works.

Q: What are your upcoming artistic projects?

A: Really I don't know, I use to follow a momentary inspiration. I'm having some images in my mind and I hope to realize them soon, but I know that they'll never come as I want. Sometime it happens that I start with an idea, and I end to make a completely different thing, but it's also good and funny.
