Hello adult coloring fans! Today we have an interview with an artist for hire! If you have any design you just couldn't put to on paper she can help! Meet Parsun!
Q:First of all tell us something about yourself.
Hello everyone! My name is Prasun Balasubramaniam and I belong from Tamil Nadu, India. I am a 21-year- old self-taught Artist and a Biotechnologist by profession. Doodling is my passion. I wish to pursue research in the field of Cancer Genetics and get recognized as an Artist. I am currently working as a Research assistant in a Pharma company and also working a Creative freelancer for custom artworks based on demand.
Q: How did you start to color? When did this attraction begin?
I have always loved drawing and coloring since I was a kid. But I started sincerely working on zendoodles and mandala when I had completed my Engineering few months back with no job and was going through severe depression. Art helped me come out of it and helped me explore myself. When I had started drawing, I had no idea on what these art forms were called. Exposure to Instagram made me realize that. Family and friends encouraged to work more on my artworks.
Q: Do you use coloring as a small getaway from the real world?
According to me, Art or any passion has to be refined on a daily basis so that you can excel in it. It helps me de stress myself after a tiring day at work.
Q: Is coloring time-consuming? How often do you color on a weekly basis?
Most of my artworks take about 8-10 hours, depending on size and difficulty. I spend minimum of 2 hours daily on drawing and almost the whole day on weekends and holidays.
Q:How do you prepare before coloring?
Before I start drawing or coloring, I mostly sit with my laptop, watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S. or speak with my mother, while drawing, when I am home. I just draw what I feel like. No special preparations.
Q:What are your favorite supplies for coloring? Do you always use the same or you like to experiment with it?
Basic chart paper is my main medium for doodling. I use Brusto Technical black pens and [easyazon_link identifier="B014GUKH7A" locale="US" tag="color-planer-20-20"]Steadtler fineliner[/easyazon_link] for drawing. For coloring I usually make use of[easyazon_link identifier="B005HF562K" locale="US" tag="color-planer-20-20"]Faber-Castle connector pens[/easyazon_link] and [easyazon_link identifier="B00KGC666E" locale="US" tag="color-planer-20-20"]Maped pencil colors[/easyazon_link]. Sometimes I use paint for the background wash. I like exploring different coloring mediums.
Q: Do you have special techniques and color mixes that you'd like to share with us? Any tips and tricks?
I prefer creating black and white doodles, but also love exploring different color shades. One tip I could give is using the shades of colors that are observed in nature would give brilliant results, sunset, oceans or forest. Anyway I would say to just mix and match your favorite colors.
Q: Do you have a specific "signature" in your art?
I always use my name and my initial, BPrasun, as my signature. Recently I have started adding watermark (@prasun_finearts) to my artworks.
Q:Which books and patterns you find most enjoyable to color?
I do not use coloring books but I have planned to create my own in the near future and I am presently working on it. I know that they are very popular.
I love drawing Mandalas! My favorite colors are cool colors (shades of blue and green)
Q:Do you have a favorite coloring book author? How did he/she earn your admirations?
I haven’t used any coloring books yet. But have planned to release one myself.
Q: And last but not least, where can we find your artwork?
You can find my artworks on Instagram and Behance currently. I plan to start my own website. For custom artworks and murals, you can contact me on my personal mail ID.
