1. What influenced your character design idea? Various media have influenced my idea, like the Avatar series, Miyazaki films, and various anime/manga. But since I tried to make it as original as possible, none of them had a large impact. 2. Do you have a favorite animator or artist? My favorite digital artist would probably be Sakimichan on Deviantart. 3. What is your favorite animated film? My favorite animated film would probably be Princess Mononoke. 4. Describe your dream job. My dream job would be in the art field, like a concept artist, animator, or illustrator.
