orange lore creates very sweet artwork that looks as if it came out of a children's book. Here we interview the artist.
Cute and sweet like a children's book. The mystical atmosphere of the silhouettes grabbed our attention! We interviewed the artist to see the secrets behind the monochrome world!
An accident lead orange lore to draw in a silhouette style!
orange lore：I always liked small and cute characters, so I always had that in mind when I was drawing.
orange lore：With paper, I always drew with a pen. When I moved to digital, I also drew with a pen, but one day I accidentally filled it in with the bucket tool.
Then I thought, this is a nice design... and I started drawing like that, eventually ending up with my current style.
You say you eventually ended up with this style. What kind of struggles did you have while figuring out the style?
orange lore：First I drew almost the same thing for a while, to get used to the style.
After I got used to it, I started thinking about how to make the lines smoother, put more thoughts to the composition, and tried adding colors.
orange lore：I try not to make the lineart too awkward.
I also try not to add unnecessary details and make it look cluttered, but I also try not to make it look too simple.
How do you keep the balanced and not make it look cluttered?
orange lore：I draw stars around the character, and when I do, I think about the distance.
orange lore：The good thing is, it doesn't take much time.
The struggle is when a line is a bit off, everything starts to look bad.
It happens especially when I start to loose focus.
What do you do when you struggle?
orange lore：I do something else to take my mind off and refresh.
I always have a book close to me, and when I get stuck I read a bit.
If that doesn't work either, I go to sleep and let me in the future take care of it.
orange lore：I try not to make the colors too vivid and keep it soft.
Also I try to keep the colors fun.
orange lore：I think my lineart got better.
I also learned how to use things like overlay, so that helps with other styles as well.
orange lore：When I am sketching the rough draft.
It's fun imagining different things and drawing those.
Is there something you struggle with?
orange lore：I love drawing, so nothing feels overwhelming.
It's not that I struggle, but I use my head the most when I add colors.
