Interview with AMANA
Title : PINK HEART
Influenced by favorite cartoon and animation drawings from childhood
What is the origin of the name “Amana”?
I took it from a character in a game I like.
It has a cute sound and is my favorite!
Now I would like to ask you some questions about your work.
What kind of work environment do you use to create your artwork?
I use CLIP STUDIO PAINT on a second generation iPad Pro.
How did you come to your current style?
I am influenced by my favorite cartoon and anime drawings as a child.
Drawing girls with big eyes and big highlights in their pupils is a particular influence.
Indeed, Amana’s work is characterized by large eyes and pupil highlights.
I also got hooked on the color pink through the work “PINK HEART,” which I exhibited at OpenSea, and have been creating more and more works that use pink as the main color.
（PINK HEART” is an illustration used in the Creator Interview catchphrase）
I often add hearts and letters to make the eyes more dense
When you paint people, is there a specific order in which you paint them?
The most common order is eyes, nose, mouth, outline, body, and hair.
If the face is not painted in a cute way, the brush will not progress, so the face is painted first with a lot of energy.
As I mentioned earlier, the eyes you draw are very impressive.
Is there anything you pay attention to when you draw them?
Eyes are the most important thing to draw the eye, so I try to use a variety of colors, not just one.
I often add hearts and text to make the eyes more dense.
The pupil of the work “PINK HEART MEGAMI” exhibited at FOUNDATION is the current masterpiece, so please take a look at it!
（PINK HEART MEGAMI” is illustrated below.）
Title : PINK HEART MEGAMI
Motifs are things you want to draw or places you have actually been
You have painted works with backgrounds as well as PFPs.
In those works, you have painted a variety of backgrounds. What is your aim in deciding on the backgrounds?
The works with painted backgrounds are mainly exhibited at FOUNDATION.
I draw with the challenge of foundation and the desire to show a new side of AMANA.
I draw motifs based on what I want to draw or photos of places I have actually been.
So that’s what you’re aiming for.
Indeed, the detailed backgrounds show the care and thought that went into them.
We created a community on Twitter
What are your future plans for the OpenSea and foundation collections?
As for openensea, we will increase the number of various types of girls, mainly for the “AMANA girls collection 2nd”.
As for foundation, we will continue to challenge ourselves to show different aspects from openensea!
Is there anything else you would like to tell us other than the question?
We have created a community on Twitter.
We post information on secondary sales, new releases ahead of time, community-only giveaways, rejected rough drafts, etc.
Please come visit us if you are interested!
Any final comments for our readers?
I started NFT at the end of October 2021 and have been able to continue my activities up to this point thanks to the holders and the followers who always support me.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you.
Thank you for everything!
And if you are interested in Amana for the first time, please visit us not only to see her works at openensea and foundation, but also on Twitter!
I would be happy if you could talk to her!
Thank you very much, Amana.
After the interview with AMANA
I was surprised to hear that they added hearts and letters to increase the density of the eyes.
I was impressed by the level of attention to detail that went into the creation of these wonderful works of art.
You do not have to be a holder to participate in the Twitter community, where you can get information ahead of time and see rejected rough drafts that you normally would not be able to see.
He asked us to feel free to join, so if you are at all interested in Amana, let’s join the Twitter community!
Amana says that she is addicted to the color pink and has been creating more works with pink as the main color.
We are looking forward to seeing what kind of pink works she will be presenting in the future.
