Rogue: Thank you so much for not only working together, but taking the time to answer some questions!

Jenny: Thank you it was a pleasure to work with you, you are very talented and your costumes are awesome. I love to work together with creative people especially cosplayers. I hope to get the possibility to do more cooperation’s like this in the future. 

Rogue: So let's dive right in! How long have you been photo editing?

Jenny: I do photo editing for 12 years now. It started as a hobby besides my day job (2d/3d/VFX artist), but I’m getting more and more enthusiastic these days seeing so many amazing costumes and people around.

Rogue: Did you go to school or receive professional training for your photo editing skills?

Jenny: I‘m trained as media designer. I went to a design school and learned the full range of new media like film, print, 3d, photography and so on. Today I work as media designer and artist with a focus on 2d / 3D / VFX doing compositing, photo editing and photography in my limited free time. In addition I constantly try to improve my skills by reading books, watching tutorial on YouTube and practicing and a lot of trial and error.

Rogue: You don't just edit cosplay photos though, right? I've seen some beautiful fantasy based edits on your page.

Jenny: I’m just the average nerd girl giggle loving fantasy, Sci-Fi... dinosaurs... computer games... Superhero’s For me it is exciting to create worlds around a character, for example an enchanted forest or a spaceship, lost places…..these realms are complete from my imagination brought to reality/live. It is nice to see how a complete story is created when a cosplay or a model is put in an otherworldly scenario. I shape a reality I would like to see. I think that’s why I choose to do more fantasy, as everything is possible ;)

Rogue: I like that perspective, its similar to why I love cosplay, bringing new worlds to life! What has been your favourite photo editing project to date?

Jenny: This is hard to tell, I’m always completely drawn in the world I’m currently creating. I think I love them all until they are finished and I travel to the next one.

Rogue: What a beautiful answer. What was your most challenging photo editing project to date?

Jenny: The “Hello Beasty” Jack Sparrow edit was quite challenging. I wasn’t happy with the material I could find on the internet.. Therefore I created all parts for my compositing on my one in 3d. This happens more and more often since then.

Rogue: I can only imagine haha. Do you do photography as well, or just photo editing?

Jenny: Yes photography is definitely one of my passions. I actually even started my whole journey with a hobby project in architecture photography. The next step was photographing textures and stock photos giving me a lot of material for my later compositing’s.

Rogue: Makes sense! What about cosplay, do you have any favourite characters?

Jenny: There are just to many awesome characters out there to pick from. But I think I have a thing for Disney characters, or characters from old fairytales in general..... well and Jack Sparrow...who is not in love with this hot quirky pirate ;)

Rogue: As a sailor I have to agree pirates are rather fascinating! If you could have any super power in the world, what would you choose and why?

Jenny: Most super powers come with a big disadvantage, like reading minds, or super strength…no thanks I’m just happy being a dreamer.

Rogue: Fair enough! Haha. If folks wanted to commission you to edit a photo of them, what is the best way to contact you?

Jenny: Just drop me a line on my Facebook page with a pm or contact me on GwenhwyfarLart@gmx.de

Rogue: Do you have any other social media links you would like to share?

Jenny: facebook, 500px, deviantart, instagram, fotocommunity

Rogue: Awesome! Thanks again, I had a lovely time working with you and all the best with your future endeavours!
