Fo: How did you discover the microstock marketplace and did it take long to see some results?

BluedarkArtDrawing and painting have been my great passions since I was a child. With my first computer I spent a lot of time learning to “draw” with some free graphics software included with the computer. It opened a whole new and fascinating world!

One day I decided to look for a way to make a career out of this activity, and after some web research I discovered Fotolia. I uploaded my first picture at the end of December 2008 , and made my first sale just a few days later ! Someone, somewhere had found my beautiful design and bought it!

It may seem silly to say but it was really a thrill for me! These were my first steps in microstock!

FoHow do you feel before you take a picture or make an illustration? Where do you find inspiration?

B: Generally I am impressed by colors rather than shapes, so quite often I start with a combination of colors and come up with a design, or a shape. When I’m at my computer I try to “fix” an image, otherwise I try to set down what goes through my mind. I often have what I like to call my best “flashes” when I cannot write down a sketch, so I go digging in my memory to rediscover those ideas and draw them – especially nature and animals!

FoIs there something new you would like to experiment with in your work?

B: Among the many things that I would like to learn the one I find very appealing is 3D modeling. Actually, I’ve done some experiments here and there, and I am motivated to learn more. But vector graphic Art is my main specialty – and there’s a lot of room for improvement!

FoThank you very much for your time, and we wish you the best of luck with all your careers in stock!
