Today, it’s my pleasure to interview an amazing Illustrator from Colombia – Didi Esmeralda!

Now, let’s get to it! 🙂
Dear Didi, I’m so glad to have you here with us! It’s a pleasure! Tell us a little bit about yourself.
How do you think your youth years impacted your art now?
When did you first realize that it is art career you want to pursue?
How do you go about creating female characters? What do you focus on?
I create the female characters from emotions that I want the viewer to receive when they see the character.
I focus a lot on the face that expresses an emotion of tranquility, tenderness, eroticism, fun, etc. According to the initial intention.
People divide into two categories – those who believe in talent, and those who believe in hard work. What are your thoughts on this topic and art?
Who are the top artists that have inspired you in the past and continue inspiring you on an everyday basis?
What is your process like for creating your piece? Where do the ideas come from? Where do you start?
Do you continue learning art from any other sources?
I love the details in your work! What are the tools you use? And how long does it take for you to finish one piece?
What is it that you find the most challenging in the life of an artist?
Thank you so much for joining us today! And for the last question – what is your big art dream you are working towards?
