NSFW Gamer’s Artist Spotlight – Flowermilk

NSFW Gamer’s Artist Spotlight – Flowermilk

You guys remember that awesome Amazon picture I posted last week? Of course you do. Well there’s a whole lot more where that came from.

I’m pleased to announce our second Artist Spotlight Interview, this time with the amazingly talented Flowermilk!

I mentioned in the Amazon post that I’ve been a fan of Flowermilk’s for a while now and how much I love his work so I don’t think I have to rehash all that in this feature. Besides, you’re here to read the interview and look at hentai pics right? I don’t blame you, I don’t want to hear myself ramble either. So lets get to it then, shall we?

NSFW Gamer: Please tell us a little about yourself.
Flowermilk: I was born near Paris, France. It all started when I got my first computer, a C64. I got interested in programming and pixel art right away at a young age, and eventually released a couple of games on Atari ST as an indie developer in my early twenties. I dropped out of college where I was studying physics to pursue my career as a graphic artist, learning 3D in the process. Then I began to travel around within the game industry, working for all the main major game developers, in Canada and then now in the US. I slowly transitioned from 3D to concept art and then art direction. I never had any formal art training.

I came to hentai as a passion because I’ve always been interested in pin-up and erotic art. I guess it served as a pressure valve to let me be creative in a completely different way than what I normally do at work. I started the Vanilla Dolls in 2010, in an effort to maybe eventually shift gears toward porn art, but it’s really more of a hobby for now.

Who are your favorite artists?
Hajime Sorayama, Adam Hughes, F.S, Ishikei, Rockin’ Jelly Bean, Alex Ross.

How would you describe your style?
I guess it’s mainly realistic western erotic art, but I think I’m heavily influenced by japanese hentai artists in the way I deal with body proportions, and in my rendering. I think I made the Vanilla Dolls in an effort to bridge the gap between the clean and realistic execution usually found in traditional western pin-ups, and the unapologetic, sex charged Japanese material.

Are your illustrations 100% digital or do you use traditional techniques as well?
It’s all digital, in Photoshop.

When working on a commissioned piece do you find it hard to work within a genre you are not personally interested in?
To be honest I don’t do many commissions and I’ll just flat out decline anything that I’m not really excited in doing. I did a few ones mainly for people who have been very supportive of me in the past, or because I was intrigued by the project, but since I don’t paint hentai for the money at the moment, I don’t really have to make any compromises. Not that I’m not passing judgment here. I understand why artists have to work outside of their comfort zone, and there’s value into that. It’s just not for me.

Do you work when you are inspired or do you have a set schedule?
LOL people who follow me a little bit know how terribly slow I am. So no, obviously I have no schedule. I work only when I feel it, and unfortunately my regular job eats up a lot of my time and creative energy. But in the future I want to impose a stricter schedule on myself, mainly because I understand the frustration of some people asking for more art from me.

Who is your favorite character to draw?
Honestly I don’t think I have any. It’s more that I have a certain type of girls I like to paint. They have to have very generous curves, and cute baby faces. So I’ll end up doing that most of the time, regardless who the character is.

Are there any characters that you want to draw but haven’t had a chance to yet?
Plenty! I always have a giant backlog of characters I want to do. I can give you a quick, non exhaustive list off the top of my head: Jill Valentine, Princess Peach, Kasumi, Cammy, Rachel (Ninja Gaiden), Chun Li, Bayonetta, Dragon’s Crown Sorceress, Supergirl, Emma Frost, and maybe a few real life pornstars like Jada Stevens, Jessie Rogers, Audrey Bitoni, Julia Bond. But I also like creating characters.

What advice would you give aspiring hentai artists?
Advices are always double egged swords so please take what I say with a grain of salt. I think to me when I look at young artists most of the time all they want is copy their idols. It’s a natural thing to do, and a fairly good way to get up to speed on technique. But eventually by being a copycat you only limit yourself. So once you’re a little more comfortable with your skills, don’t hesitate to experiment and do crazy things for yourself, not for your audience. It will bring honesty and clarity to your work, something that people will respond to. And also, be patient. The one who wins is the one who paints the most. It may not be that simple, but it’s close to it. Simply spend a lot of time drawing and painting, and you’ll slowly get better at it. There’s no shortcut for that. It takes time, and the process can be horribly frustrating, but also extremely rewarding at times. Finally, don’t skip steps. There’s no point in detailing a piece if you have weak composition or anatomy. Be very critical of your own work. You know when you settle for less than you could do. Don’t, because it will give you an edge over all the artists who do.

List your top 3 favorite movies:
Raiders of the Lost Ark, Brazil, and Gravity.

List your top 3 favorite video games:
Ultima III, Dark Souls, and Uncharted 2.

    Wow great job Noah! You’re actually the very first to get it right away. I wanted a cute alias for myself, but also something that had an underlying porn meaning if you read between the lines. Like for my girls, I find very exciting mixing the cute and seemingly innocent with the real perverse and hardcore. The Vanilla Dolls name revolves around the same idea.
