Are you at all nervous about [The X-Files revival]?

David Duchovny: I think I’ll be nervous on the day. When I’m in a scene with Gillian, I think we’ll both be like, this is so weird. And I think we’ve both gotten better as we’ve gotten older, so how do we bring that to bear on these characters? If I were to look back at the first or second year of the show, I wouldn’t try to act like that guy. I’m capable of doing more. She’s capable of doing more. It’ll be interesting to see how we keep the characters the same but also the actors are better.

President Obama and ‘The Wire’ creator David Simon explain the hidden costs of the war on drugs 

On Thursday, the White House released a video of President Obama discussing the war on drugs with David Simon, the creator of the critically acclaimed HBO show The Wire. Obama and Simon discussed how they both personally witnessed how the war on drugs caused the criminal justice system to stray from its fundamental purpose.

A writer flirts with schizophrenia, nurtures synesthesia, and embraces obsessive-compulsive disorder. Your art feeds on you, your soul, and, yes, to a degree, your sanity. Writing novels worth reading will bugger up your mind, jeopardize your relationships, and distend your life. You have been warned.

Special interview with David Adhinarya Lojaya

Pinup Arena: Hi, Please Tell us a little bit about yourself, Where are you from? Where did you go to school?, What inspired you to become an Artist?

David A.L: Hi, My name is David Adhinarya Lojaya. I am a freelance artist from Indonesia. I graduated from Limkokwing University of Creative Technology. As a kid, I really like to watch cartoons and anime, so I began to draw them. Lately, I’ve been inspired a lot from many artists from Animation industries such as Disney.I am really into the visual development process and character design on the animation films. 

Pinup Arena: Which software do you use? please describe the process.

David A.L: I am using photoshop and a wacom tablet. I started my process with research, but it depends on the subject. If it’s a fun sketch, I’ll just go straight to the doodling, mostly in digital form.
After that, I put monochrome colors to the painting, it’s really easy to build your painting foundation with this technique.
Then, I simply put flat colors to the monochrome painting and start rendering again.The rendering process is about color correcting, texturing, and giving more details. It’s almost like painting again on top of the foundation layer.

Pinup Arena: What is your most favorite subject to draw? And why?

David A.L:I like to draw human/humanoid character because It’s fun and people enjoy it too. My main style is cartoon stylized, but sometime I do paint realistic.

Pinup Arena: Where do you get your inspiration from?

David A.L:I get my inspirations from mostly anything. It can be a photo, items, culture, and nature. I also get inspired by a lots of artists from internet and classical painter.

Pinup Arena: Please tell us about your past and current projects

David A.L:My past project was mostly around animation and games. I used to be a lighting artist for an animation company, and we made a 3d animation feature in 2013. After that, I decided to be a freelance artist at the end of 2013. My first project as a freelancer was a children book illustrations, and the book has just released now in 2015 haha.
I also did some freelance for ios and console games, and still doing that too now. I am also planning to create my own t-shirt brand with some of my friends. I have these 2 artbook projects for my own. One is from my patreon, which is an erotic fantasy artbook, anyone can help support me on:
And the other artbook is for myself which hopefully can be published during this year.

Pinup Arena: Thank you for this interview :)
