Hello, and welcome to another edition of Digitalists new interview series:

Behind the Screens: Digital Art Masters

Through these interviews, we will get an in-depth look into the minds
and careers of DeviantART's most influential digital artists.

Today's featured artist is Selenada


Selene Regener is a professional digital artist from Switzerland who has a successful career as a freelance illustrator. She is married and has a 2 year old son who she loves very much. When asked to describe herself, she had the following to say: "I was born on this wonderful planet like all of us are. I am a human being that respects and appreciates other human beings, creativity, happiness and peace. I've experienced many interesting things in my life journey so far, like studying opera singing, playing musical instruments (piano, cello, violin and harp), traveling, of course producing lots of art, living in different parts of the earth and making wonderful friends."

When did you first discover your passion for art? 

I have loved art for as long as I can remember. I always loved to doodle and color in things. I remember my cousin being so upset at me and taking away paints and brushes from me because I painted all the faces green in the coloring book!

Where do you find your inspiration?

My inspiration usually comes from many places. It can be from nature, a quote, books and music, also during a shower, my mind fills up with many interesting ideas out of nowhere. Maybe it is the sound of water, I still did not figure that one out.

What is your favorite piece from your gallery and why?

I love all of my works for different reasons. I put lots of care and love into each one of them. My skill changes with time, but I really appreciate my older works as well because they were great in that time. It is like with pets or even children, you can not pick your favorite one because you love them all.

As a professional digital artist, what advice can you give to those who are trying to become successful in the business?

My advice to other artists is to get back to being like a toddler when you draw, paint, and create. Do it for the sake of fun and not because you have to do it or do it to get better. When you have fun you will get better naturally. Become curious about everything, always ask yourself questions.

There are a lot of people in the community who think receiving a Daily Deviation 
is essential for achieving popularity on DeviantART. From experience, 
how much would you say getting awarded Daily Deviations has 
impacted your success on this site? 

Daily Deviations are really great to receive, it sure gives you more exposure and through that you get more people who watch you in that one/two days. Also Daily Deviations are a nice reward to receive from time to time, I love to discover new wonderful arts through Daily Deviations.

Photobash experiment! XD by Selenada

Name three influential artists on DeviantART whose works 
inspire you and tell us why you look up to them.
simply love her works, they have something special and unique to them. Each time I look at her works, it is as if time stops for a moment. It is hard to describe the feeling, her art resonates with me.

His works are so colorful, full of imagination and life! They often bring up childhood
memories of when I used to look at the clouds and make up different animals out of them
(still do it from time to time). He also creates this wonderful feeling as if though you are
being alone in the world with the mother nature, it is blissful.

 Pascal creates magical art, the rendering is simplistic yet very real. I love his coloring and
lighting, but most of all I love his story telling. Each picture has it's meaning, many of them
bring a smile to my face and my heart fills up with happiness and joy. I look up to him
to maybe some day being able to portray a story like he does.
