Interview with FūwaRin
I’m often told that my drawing style + personality is “fluffy”
What is the origin of the name FūwaRin?
Originally, my name was Rin, but I wanted to make it a name that would come up properly when people searched for it.
I have often been told that my picture and personality are “fluffy,” and I like fluffy things, so I came up with my current name.
It is important for the name to come up properly in a search.
For some reason, I am often mispronounced in the NFT community, but I read it as “Fuwa Rin”.
It’s not Fuwarin! haha!
Fuwarin-san is also kawaii. haha
But it is “Fuwa Rin”, so please remember that, everyone.
Since I started NFT, I have been consciously drawing illustrations with highly saturated colors
Next, please tell us about your working environment.
I use Clip Studio Paint on my desktop PC to draw illustrations.
I use a Wacom board tablet as my pen tab.
When I travel, I carry my iPad pro with me and draw illustrations with an Apple pencil.
You do illustrations even when you are on vacation.
I can feel that you really love illustrations.
How did you come to your current style?
Since I started NFT, I have been conscious of drawing illustrations with highly saturated colors, which is why my illustrations have become the clearly colored illustrations that they are today.
Originally, I mainly drew fluffy illustrations with pastel colors because I liked to use light colors.
Even now, I sometimes draw illustrations using mainly pastel colors as a hobby.
I would love to see fluffy illustrations, and I would also like to see you present the pastel-colored illustrations that you draw as a hobby.
I use almost 30 layers each time just for the eyes!
When you paint people, is there a specific order in which you paint them?
When drafting, I start drawing from the forelock.
When I color, I start from the eyes.
So your drafts are from the front of the line?
I am curious as to why, as it varies totally from creator to creator.
As for drafting, it is completely an old habit.
You can’t change those same old routines, can you?
When painting people, the most important part is the face, and the eyes, which have the greatest influence on the impression, are painted first, and then quality checks and corrections are made based on the balance of the face.
I think the facial expressions that Rin draws are very thin and distinct.
What do you pay most attention to when drawing faces?
Of course it’s the eyes!
I use almost 30 layers each time just for the eyes.
When the viewer looks at the illustration, the eyes of the person are the first thing he or she looks at, so I set the saturation to the highest level.
Indeed, Rin’s illustrations are the first thing I look at.
In addition, we have paid particular attention to drawing facial expressions that show the character’s personality and atmosphere at a glance.
Yeah, yeah, you can tell by the expressions on their faces.
I am passionate about my work until I am satisfied with it
How do you plan to develop your collection in the future?
As for openensea, I would like to create 3D works of Altcoin-chan, which I am currently drawing!
As for foundation, I would like to challenge myself to create many illustrations that I have never drawn before, and I would like to grow in my drawing ability!
Is there anything else you would like to tell us other than the question?
Since I work full time and don’t publish my work very often, I think many people don’t know I exist yet.
Therefore, I am very happy to have this opportunity to let everyone know about me!
You work full time and produce work of that quality?
No, I am truly amazed.
Let’s spread the word more about such a wonderful talent, Rin!
Time has flown by so quickly because of all the interesting stories, but any final comments for our readers?
In making NFT, I am passionate about my work until I am satisfied with it and spend a considerable amount of time on it.
We hope you will come and visit our collection!
And if there is a child you would like to take home with you, we would be very happy to welcome you.
They are all lovely, so please take them home with you!
Thank you very much, FūwaRin.
After the interview with FūwaRin
I’m a little curious about what’s going on in the NFT area that you call Fuwarin.
I’m a little curious.haha
Again, it is amazing that you are able to produce such high quality work while working full time.
Nearly 30 layers each time just for the eyes alone, isn’t that amazing?
And he is passionate about his work until he is satisfied with it.
I am sure that everyone can feel the passion that FūwaRin has for her work.
FūwaRin would like to try her hand at 3D works and works that she has never written before.
We look forward to her further success in the future.
