January 2014 Artist of the Month - Cyve

Related: 2D, AOM, Cyve

Each month the Renderosity community votes on the Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... January's AOM is Cyve!

We congratulate Cyve for an outstanding collection of works in the 2D Gallery!

Who is 'Cyve' ?

Someone with a passion for drawing and arts in general.

How long now have you been creating art?

I discovered drawing when I was 14 or 15 years old, thanks to a teacher who gave me some perspective drawing groundings. I then tried several techniques like China ink drawing, oil painting, scratchcard, etc. But, I really started drawing in 1992. I had a long break from drawing in the mid 2000’s and began to draw again (and post on renderosity again) at the begining of 2013.


Old 1993 - v10


Do you have any formal art education?

No, I never had any professional training, but a stylist friend of mine gave me some tips and taught me some basics around 1992/1993.

What are you currently working on?

I'm currently working on several drawings.


Glamour - 12


Who, or what, inspires you?

I only draw what I find beautiful. It’s kind of a vague answer, but I can’t draw something I don’t like. However, I’m mostly inspired by nature and the human body, nothing fancy!

What do you enjoy most about your art?

What I enjoy the most is drawing fully-detailed pieces, and conversely, minimal drawings.




What do you think your best piece of work is and why?

It’s really hard to answer this question, but, in my opinion, every new drawing is the best one (with a few exceptions I never posted).

Do you have any tips you would be willing to share on drawing/painting?

Of course, but it’s really hard for me to fully express myself in English (my son did the translation for this interview).

How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

Renderosity has two majors assets regarding this matter :

First, there’s this emulation from the community that helps you improve. You want to challenge yourself every time so that your friends like your new drawing.

Then there is all the advice from your peers, pointing out things you might not see when you draw. Other aspects of the community help you gain creativity, but they are less obvious and hard to explain.

Do you have any parting comments, or advice for other artists?

I’m affraid this is it! However, I’d like to warmly thank every person who has supported me since I began to draw again and everyone who voted me up so that I’m here with you today.




We invite you to have a further look at Cyve's Gallery!

Artist of the Month is highlighting a talented Renderosity artist that has been nominated by mods and admins, and voted by the community. Recognition is given to this member for their collection of works for that year.

Since we only select one AOM per month, it is not about their works for that particular month. Instead, it is about highlighting a talented artist's works for that year, and they are recognized during that month.

Félicitations! Il y a quelque chose de gracieux dans la maîtrise des courbes et la réduction à l'essentiel dans le trait qui fait penser à la période Art nouveau / Art déco et fait bien honneur à l'art français.
