Hello, everyone! Welcome to the Storybook Club, Super Story Spotlight! In these spotlights features artist from veterans to new! Today we have Jasonwangart who will be a part of our spotlight for this week!
1. What is your name?, how old are you? And why did you join Storybook Club?
(My name is Jason. I joined Storybook Club to see the diverse styles and content that people are making in their storybook illustrations, and to share my own works too. I am 35 years old. I wish I had developed my artistic directions earlier - during my 20's I was unfortunately following others' expectations of me, but I hope my working hard now will make up for lost time and pay off!)
2. What are your goals on DeviantArt? Do you have goals or do you just do what you do for fun?
( I joined DeviantArt as part of my process of exploring what I want to do with art. It's a great way for me to see what artists around the world are doing! Of course I also want to share and promote my own works as well.)
3. Have you ever thought about getting your art published by someone? If so or not. Tell me why?
(Yes absolutely! I think I have some great ideas and good potential, but I realize that my portfolio is smaller than I would like, and also that my skills need further development. You may notice it has been several months since I've last posted. I have been working on improving my drawing and artistic techniques, and have also been working on the picturebook stories I want to try to publish as well. When my writing and my drawing reaches a higher level, I will submit my work to publishers to see if they are interested in publishing!)
4. What are your hobbies outside of Deviant Art?
(Outside of Deviant Art I like to be in nature. Trees, rivers, streams, mountains, lakes, shores, cliffs, plains, shrubs, flowers and more all make me feel good.)
5. Any advice do you want to give to the people in the group or some of the veterans in the group?
( Hmm... I'm not sure if I'm qualified to give advice, but I try to tell myself that, even though art is a risky occupation, it's important to try!)
6. (Post Your Favorite/Best Art Here!)
(My best piece so far is my latest drawing: jasonwangart.deviantart.com/ar…
. You can see how, between this one and the one before it, there is a big jump in quality. Things like lighting, anatomy, composition, space, modelling etc have all improved. I worked really hard on this one and, while I can see many places for improvement, I am proud of the results too! I am working on my next drawing, and I hope everything about it will be even better!

Wonderful! Make sure to give Jason a follow or check out his art, leave criticism or just give him some love! I want to apologize on how long these spotlights are taking because as like everyone else. I am a very busy man, but I hope the patience was worth it! Until then, I'll see you next time!
