Heromorph's Artist Spotlight featuring...

WLIne

Wanderline Freitas , AKA WLine

Occupation: Artist, Illustrator, Cartoonist, Caricaturist and Art Teacher. Heromorph Profile: WLine

"The art of Life in painted screens or graphites made.
Copyrighted comics and the most various caricatures.
This is my art. This is Time for Art!" (Wanderline Freitas)


tempo de arte

Lady Heromorph: For this month's Artist Spotlight, we have the multi-talented, imaginative and prolific WLine, who cames from the sunny lands of Brazil!

Ok! Lets start this Tell us a little bit about you. Introduce yourself to the Heromorph Community.

WLine: Hello. Im Wanderline Freitas, an artist, illustrator and Brazilian caricaturist.
Lady Heromorph: I know you have some published comic stories, both on paper and online. Do you have a favorite one?
WLine: I really like my novel Amigos, Amantes, Amores (Friends, Lovers, Loves), published in 2010 that I also released online, among other works from me, at my blog: Hora de Ler HQ Warning: Contains Adult Content!
Lady Heromorph: What about a favorite character? And why?
WLine: My favorite character is Eni Gim (something like R. Iddler, get it?), I believe thats because he is the first character I created back in 1996. I talk in detail about his creation in this video:
Creating Eni Guim
Its funny stories about a clumsy detective and he is also my character with more stories, 3 published so far and a lot more already finished.
Lady Heromorph: How long have you drawn/written comics?
WLine: Ive been drawing comic stories since 1997. I had one of my characters, WinBlack, published in 2007 in the Brazilian comic book Brado Retumbante. You can find some of his short stories by clicking the following image:
Lady Heromorph: Do you have any kind of training in drawing/ art/ writing?
WLine: No. I am what we call around here, a self-taught person. I used to say that my teachers were the comic books, because of them I started to draw and wanted to tell my own stories.
Lady Heromorph: I know that comics are not your only passion, art-wise
Youre the man with like seven instruments, you draw, you sculpt, you write, you have your own Youtube Channel...
Is there anything you cant do?

Some of WLine's works in diferent medium/styles
WLine: I like this question. I often say that I dont want to know everything but I always want to learn something.
Im restless and I like to create stuff, and I cant work on only one thing related to art because to me, everything is art so Im always trying new things and learning in the process.

Lady Heromorph: What tools do you normally use? Notepad? Computer? The old pencil and paper?
WLine: Usually, I start with the pencil and paper. Then I decide if that piece of art (no matter if its a new comic story or an illustration, a caricature, or a cartoon) will look better to finish freehand the traditional way or if I scan it and give it the digital treatment.
Lady Heromorph: What you think about this digital era we live in where almost everything can be done with a computer? Drawing, color, etc...
WLine: I think its cool that some art can be done with digital tools, like comics. The only downside I see is that the original from that art is lost forever, I mean, that art is just a digital file that can be printed and replicated into a bunch of new originals.
Lady Heromorph: Do you still recall the first comic you read? What are you favorite characters?
WLine: I do. It was a Spiderman comic that my mother bought me in the early 80s.
That was when I started reading and collecting everything I could get my hands on: Turma da Mnica ( a Brazilian children's comic, very famous around here), Spiderman, Batman, Tex and Ken Parker (Italian westerns).
I still like those characters these days and I keep buying them but now I only keep the ones with stories I like. The rest, I pass them along (the space on the shelf is getting smaller ).
The only comic book I still buy to keep and collect is Julia Kendall, Adventures of a Criminologist by Giancarlo Berardi. She is physically inspired by Audrey Hepburn, one of my favorite actresses, you know?

Lady Heromorph: What about movies? Do you have any favorites?
WLine: A lot! Im a huge fan of cinema but Im only going to mention some movies from before Netflix with their huge selection to choose from
So, my favorites: Os Trapalhes (Brazilian comedy group similar to the Marx Bros), Once Upon a Time in the West, Unforgiven, The Outsiders, The Terminator, Conan the Barbarian, and finally Batman by Tim Burton.

Some of WLine's works movie inspired
Lady Heromorph: What about artists you admire? From the comics or any other medium: Book author, sculptor, whatever
Do you have anyone that inspire you?

WLine: Frank Miller, Will Eisner, Ivo Milazzo, Eduardo Rizzo, Mike Mignola, Alan Moore, Frank Cho, the brazilians Fbio Moon and Gabriel B, Gustavo Duarte, Gabriel Anfrade Jr., Wendell Cavalcanti (who recently got hired to draw The Phantom)...

All of these I admire their art and inspire me.

Lady Heromorph: Do you have any advice to beginners at learning art or comics or any other kind of art?
WLine: Observe, sketch, create, dont copy and try to make something with your art that nobody else does, I mean, find that trait that makes your style unique, because the market has already enough similar styles.
Speaking about the course we are going through during the learning, I really like a phrase credited to the artist Hokusai that says:

From the age of six I had a mania for drawing the shapes of things. When I was fifty I had published a universe of designs. but all I have done before the age of seventy is not worth bothering with. At seventy five I'll have learned something of the pattern of nature, of animals, of plants, of trees, birds, fish and insects. When I am eighty you will see real progress. At ninety I shall have cut my way deeply into the mystery of life itself. At a hundred I shall be a marvelous artist. At a hundred and ten everything I create; a dot, a line, will jump to life as never before.

Hokusai (1760-1849)
andreas.com
Katsushika Hokusai and Japanese Art

Lady Heromorph: To end this little chat, do you take commissions? I mean, do you accept work from anywhere in the world? Like, if a Heromorphian from the States wants a personalized drawing from you Is that something you consider? And if that is possible, how can they contact you?
WLine: Yes, its possible. My email is .
Lady Heromorph: Thanks for sharing your time and work with us, WLine.




Be sure to tune in next time, folks, and I will have a new Spotlight on another talented Artist. See ya'll then!

Note:


This Hall of Fame is a bit diferent than usual.
As many of you know we have lost one of our own recently, so this is our way to pay tribute to the friend and artist he was...

I'm sure some of you have some stories with him as well, so after you read the following Hall of Fame, please, we invite YOU to share one story about Dark Wanderer in this thread: Farewell Dark Wanderer... Or make an image dedicated to him and share it at the Gallery like Halcon89 already did: EN HOMENAJE A DW



A place of special tribute to Heromorph's most legendary, talented and gifted artists


Dark Wanderer

Dark Wanderer




Iron Man From Egypt

Dark Wanderer was a member and moderator here at HeroMorph.



That's what some of you know about him... and some not even that much.



To most of you he was just some 3Der that used to post some stuff in the galleries...



Tournament of Heroes: Round 2


BUT...



He was so much more than that.



He was a friend. And a Teacher. And the driving force behind the Secret Santa and some of the best challenges we had here at HeroMorph in the last few years.



He really loved Secret Santa and this site. So much that when he become a moderator, he made it his personal quest to host the best Secret Santa every year.



He was the guy that made sure that every participant got its own gift, filling in for the no-shows and overdue entries in order that everyone had a gift on Secret Santa posting day.



BUT...



He was so much more than that.



Long before he was a moderator, he was already one of the first to welcome new artists to the site. And to help them grow and evolve by sharing his knowledge with them, leaving constructive and helpfull comments on their art...



Although in recent years he was mostly known as a 3D guy, that was not all he was as an artist.



He was also a skilled manipper and a 2Der artist...



And as you can see by his personal rank, he was very proud of those days when he mastered the way to create metalic textures on manips.



Take a look at the work present in his gallery and you can see all his talent!



For Dark Wanderer's many contributions, friendship and simpathy to this community, we'd like to show our appreciation as we add him to our list of legendary members in the HeroMorph's Hall of Fame!



WTF - Jade Spider No Oath


BUT...



He was so much more than that.



He was also a husband and a father of three.



...



He was...



The Metal Shinigami .



Moderator.



Friend.



Teacher.



Real life husband and father.



Dark Wanderer.



Jason SizemoreJason Sizemore





1978 - 2019



Requiescat in Pace, my friend. You will not be forgotten!!






Good?
I never claimed to be.
Just good at what I do, and today that is being evil.
Dark Wanderer

Terrible news. He was a great artist, a genuinely friendly and supportive person, and one of the pillars of this community. He will very definitely be missed. 41 is far, far too young. Requiescat in Pace, my friend.

This is very sad news. DW will be missed greatly by all of us. He was more than just a terrific artist. He was always helpful, funny, supportive and generous. He was also one of the most committed and valuable moderators and contributors to Heromorph. My deepest sympathies and condolences to all his friends and family.

I am without words. DW has been the source of much inspiration and guidance for me. He will be missed immensely.

May the next life treat you as wonderfully as you treated all of us here, DW.

Two jobs and marriage put a serious crimp in my posting of art but that's no reason to neglect my Heromorph family. I will be posting again soon.

My Sensei. My friend. I can not put into words how important you were in so many people's lives. You always gave advice, tutorials and assistance without ever asking for help in return. Heromorph, nay, the World is a sadder place without you in it. Peace and love to you from the Dream Dimension. :(

This has been hitting me so very hard. So many many memories. After a 10 year hiatus from drawing, some encouragement from the community, he was the one who nudged me back into drawing again. And furthermore got me to break every rule I ever had. I can remember posting a drawing I had done based on a character from Dragonlance. And he blew me away not just because he knew the character, but he knew way more than I did. When I became a father I remember telling him my daughter's middle name is Arisia from Green Lantern. And was surprised at how he shared in my joy. Then he shared his kid's names and allowed me to share in his joy. Eventually, when life collapsed, he was someone who I could talk to. But truthfully not much was said, he just seemed to know the path I was on. Later Critical Role came up in conversation and I can recall staying up till 3 and sometimes 4 in the morning on the phone discussing the show and he was the one who nudged me back into the dungeon master's seat after a 25 year hiatus.

And now I'm learning that it's hitting me so hard because yes he was a fellow artist, great friend, someone I considered a brother. But more importantly, a kindred spirit.

So life happened. I became a father twice. Life collapsed. Took steps to start the healing process and rebuild. I see RedEra on facebook almost as much as I see Ozzy and JrMcDeath. I'm still drawing, just haven't gotten to the point where I can afford a decent setup so I can post again.

I feel bad for not been around, I wish I could have, so I could have spoke to Dark Wanderer on more time.

I remember him well when I started in this site witch was at the really beginning of this great community, he was one of the first people to give comments in that beginners era and his comments meant a lot to me.

Rest in peace my friend, you will not be forgotten!!

He was more than a friend to me, he was one of the first teachers I had when I started maniping.
He spent some time explaining to me how to start and how to improve. He even shared his tutorial on metals with me..
I had the pleasure of working with him on some Heromorph challenges and the Secret Santa.
He was always the driving force to some of those.
He really loved Secret Santa.

R.I.P my friend.

You will be missed.

Safe journey.
