Virtual IFS Featured Artist- July 2020
Hello Virtual IFS Members and all of you amazing agents out there! I hope you guys are looking forward to this months event! Like our previous months, this month has another featured artist and their submitted piece from the IFS Media Artwork Competition ! You should get this media when you redeem your decoded IFS passcode for your Virtual IFS event. Our featured artist is agent DisMysticAll, from Lisboa, Portugal!
*Edit* It has come to our attention that there were some concerns regarding this image. The artist was contacted and the issues have been resolved. In joint effort we would like to remind everyone that submits image that your artwork submission must be original. Therefore, no copyrighted work other than Ingress materials and the artist’s original creation will be considered for the competition. Even if an artwork is not under copyright or free for public use, if it is not your original creation it should not be used. In addition, your work must comply with the Niantic Player Guidelines (e.g. nothing racist/sexist/obscene).
How long have you been playing?
I’ve play ingress, since, maybe….
Well … I don’t remember , but i’ve been playing really seriously since November 2018.
And i’ve been playing progressively more and more seriously with more commitment.
What inspired you to submit your piece to the contest?
Responding in a sincere and honest way, which is by the way, my way of being in life, I was encouraged in a very emphatic and authoritative way by an agent of the Resistance. We have tried to work together against cheating in the game as much as possible, and then the agent saw some of my drafts, sent me the form and told me to apply … My answer was no, at the time: – What for? What am I going to gain from this? But the agent thought he should share it with the INGRESS community, and he insisted so much that I ended up sending one of my sketches. And i said: – There, I already sent it.
The agent says I’m a wasted talent …
Perhaps she/he would prefer me to be an agent of resistance (said in a whisper). Shhhhhhhhh !!!!
Is there anything about your artwork you want people to know?
As I said earlier, I really like this game and so, sometimes I do something and even share it with the ingress community. Some will already know this drawing because it has already been shared and some people have asked me in private if they could use it in banners or wallpapers.
However, here I would like to make it clear that this is an image that both factions love the game and are side by side in the fight to improve it, we will work together with Niantic. I expect.
Taking advantage of the visibility given to Portugal, I also hope that in post-Covid-19 times, Portugal will be considered for anomalies. It is an excellent country, monetarily very accessible, natural beauty, low crime and very good weather, good people, good wine and many many things. Pass publicity.
Is there a website where people can see your artwork or other artwork you would like to show?
There is no website, some are on pinterest and others I sometimes share on international discussion telegrams.
Are there any details you would like to share about your craft?
I draw a lot of things in a very basic way, and then I improve but everything in a basic way. Sometimes people ask me for a personal logo or a logo for a group, but I don’t do this life. I do it for pleasure, and sometimes I take it off a photo or I see an image and an idea comes up. Sometimes I experiment, sometimes it goes well. lol
Do you plan to make swag of your image?
I didn’t think about it, but maybe, if there are requests. I can do it, just ask me to do it. I can make some biocards, nothing more though.
But if anyone wants to use the drawing to do anything, just ask me for the original that I send with good quality and …. Use it.
Such a lively interview! It was an absolute pleasure to read. I am so happy your friend convinced you to submit this piece to our contest! Agents as you can see, this artist is very willing to work with you if you would like to make swag of this piece. Please reach out to them if you are interested! Thank you so much to the artist for taking the time to not just participate in the contest but doing this wonderful interview for us. I hope to see your other artwork within the community!
Please be mindful not to use this artwork(s) used in this post without permission. Thank you and we hope you participate in future IFS art competitions!
