ProjectPorkchop was created in an effort to reach more deviants on a long term basis, in order to continue bringing exposure to talented yet under appreciated artists across deviantART. As a continuation of my previous 'project' Fresh Meat ProjectPorkchop will have weekly features of artist we feel could use far more exposure to their art than they are currently recieving. Anyone is welcome to join, no matter how much exposure your art gets or how advanced your artistic skills may be.

Prime Cuts: Interview With Loafninja

Fri Jan 30, 2015, 6:32 PM


ProjectPorkchop is all about bringing more exposure to the many talented yet under appreciated artists going unseen on deviantART daily. The artists chosen truly deserve more attention based on low counts of favorites, comments, and watchers, added to their incredible artistic talent.




Welcome back for another edition of our new interview series

ProjectPorkchop: Prime Cuts

hosted by Sserenita

This project is intended to bring the community closer to the many talented yet underexposed artists that we feature each week. Today's featured artist is LoafNinja.

To Bee Dead XIII by LoafNinja

"My name is Nicholas Boyd. I reside in the US and I am an Associate Course Director for the Fundamentals of Art at Full Sail University, here in Orlando, FL."

When did you first realize that you wanted to become an artist?

Well, that is kind of a tough one to answer. I can remember drawing images from my Zoo Book collection when I was very young but I didn't realize art was a passion until I started to dabble with various 3D software while in high school. It wasn't until I attended college that I realized art and design was my true calling in life.


To Bee Dead IX by LoafNinja


What would you say defines your unique personal style? 

Art wise? I guess I would say, conceptual realism.


Oily Crow II by LoafNinja


Which piece from your gallery would you say you are most proud of?

This is another tough one. I'm very partial to my To Bee Dead series in general but picking just one from that series may prove to be difficult. To Bee Dead II was a very pivotal piece, creatively and technically, so it is up there on the list. After that, Oily Crow II and my interpretation of Bronx Lullabye by Tom Waits.

To Bee Dead II by LoafNinja


What inspires you to create your art?

Mostly, the dualities of life. Life and death surrounds us in so many ways that I find it hard to ignore. We often forget or take it for granted that everything dies. Not just us or our pets, etc., but everything from the flowers you just planted to the trees in your neighborhood. Things just die, but at the same time, more are being "born" again.


Tom Waits-Bronx Lullabye by LoafNinja


What projects are you working on currently that the community should know about? What do you have planned for the future?

Honestly, I don't do much planning. I tend to go with the concept that stands out to me the most, then take a long break after the series is completed. I'm pretty lucky in that I have a good 9-5 that pays the bills, and also allows me the freedom to create art of my liking and at my own pace.


Too Bee Dead by LoafNinja


What first attracted you to Deviant Art? 
What do you hope to accomplish in your time on this site?

Mostly is was how open it was to creative style and how friendly the community tends to be. I found it when I was just beginning to pursue art, so my skills and confidence were not where I'd hoped but it sill allowed me to be present in a community while also being expose to criticism. In short, it helped me get my feet wet.


To Bee Dead V by LoafNinja


Please tell us one interesting fact about yourself that we don't know about you.

Art was never encouraged or presented as a viable career path when I was younger so I didn't create traditional works(dabbled in 3D around the age of 16) from the age of 13 to 23.


To Bee Dead XII by LoafNinja


Thank you LoafNinja for taking the time to speak with us today!
join us next week when we will be interviewing the very talented

I have less than 200 watchers, yet I don't really know if I should be porkchopped. Another thing, does this project last all year round? Just curious..
