Since 2010, SorenZer0 has been one of the most prolific, proficient and creative artist on the size scene. You likely already have stumbled upon his finely crafted pics, depicting cruel and tantalizing scenes of domination and giant women.
And you probably haven’t forgotten them.
Now, let’s interview this mysterious multifaceted artist and see what makes him so special…
Recorded on Discord : 07/29/2018
Tina : So… Greetings soren!
SorenZer0 : Hello!
T – First things first : is this your first interview?
S – no, I was interviewed for last year’s sizecon, but they never posted it
T – Really? Then we may very well consider this one to be the first and start anew! I guess… It could start like this : are you a dog or a cat person?
S – cats. I don’t dislike dogs, but I grew up with cats, and I feel like we understand each other
T – How so? What are the qualities that make you feel empathetic toward the feline kind?
S – the way their trust and affection has to be earned through mutual respect
T – That’s a beautiful way to value your relationships. Is it the same with your work? Does a great piece of art needs to be earned?
S – you could say that
T – I just did, and realized that some of those who will read this might not know your work yet. I tend to think your art is the heart thumping encounter every macro/microphile has had or will have at a point but here… Could you tell me what you do and the nature of your work?
S – Haha, I don’t know if I’m that important. I’m a visual artist and writer and I focus more on the sadistic ‘evil’ side of giantess fetish
T – Maaaaaaybe that was me but… What do you think makes your work specific? In which way are the evil giantesses you represent specific?
S – what do you mean by specific?
T – Basically… Some artist go for vore, some for feet, some are diverse and some are obsessed… Your work is very eclectic and should I say, minimalistic. Powerful and symbolic. That would be the specificity I see to your work.
So… Let’s put it like this : is it evil in women you’re trying to represent? Carelessness? Power? What is it you’re trying to say through your art?
S – Power, domination, cruelty, the things I find sexy
T – Speaking of cruelty… Do little men ever have something to say when they meet the women you represent?
S – maybe, but it’s not important
T – Do these visual stories always end up the same? No prisoners?
S – no, sometime there are fates worse than death
T – … Could you give me an example?
One that you find sexy, for instance
S – being enslaved forever by a cruel and imperious girl? I mean, that’s the dream for me, but none of my character are that masochistic
T – You’re a prolific artist. Is there any picture you created that would near this situation?
S – any of them, really
T – Like this one?
S – sure 🙂
T – I can very well see how this cruel and imperious girl already enslaved them!
But you’re also a writer, aren’t you?
S – I am!
T – Can you tell me about your writing? Is it an important part of your creation?
S – it’s very important. I’m always trying to tell a story, even if it’s purely visual and without words
T – When saying that, you make it seem like stories and visuals aren’t so different. When do you decide between one form of art and the other?
S – all artistic mediums have their strengths and weaknesses. It depends on which is more appropriate for the story. Why use hundreds of words to describe something when a single image would get the point across better? On the other hand, there are some things that are extremely difficult to convey purely with visuals.
T – Knowing when to choose which… What motivates you to begin working on a new creation? How does it all begins?
S – inspiration can come from anywhere really. Other artists’ work, conversation, people watching, things that are completely unrelated to giantess stuff
T – Other artists work? Would you be willing to share some of your inspirations, on any kind of medium?
S – I can’t really think of any right now
T – sly pout I remember you saying vonnegut
S – I like his writing and I’ve read his lectures, but I don’t think of him as an inspiration for giantess fetish erotica
T – I see! Well… About giantess fetish erotica, have you always been a creator? Or did you lurk before that?
S – lol, was I always a skilled and accomplished artist? of course not. I lurked for a long time
T – Do you remember when you jumped on the other side of the fence, from lurker to creator?
S – sure, I just thought I’d share some of the renders I’d done
T – And I thought I’d ask you to! Flashback time!
You may proceed, soren
S – eh, I’d rather not. they weren’t good
T – Fair enough!
Now… Is there a work of yours that you feel like it didn’t get the exposure and love it deserved?
S – not really. I’ve had some products that didn’t sell as well as I’d thought, but I’d rather not say which ones
T – Your reign! And a work that you consider to be one of your best creation so far?
S – hmm, probably Snuff? I tried a lot of new things for the first time in that one, and it was received really well
T – It was awesome indeed !
S – thank you 🙂
T – I sincerely hope your fans are giving you the love you deserve and… People know you for your visuals, your writing, but you also acted as a producer with your 360° Videos. Are there any other artistic skills I may have missed? Sound maybe?
S – I only started learning about sound design and editing recently when I started doing 360 videos
I’ve also studied martial arts, and I think that helps a lot in terms of understanding physiology and realistic posing
T – So… It seems like you’re always learning and likely ever will. Do you sometime get inspiration in non fetish art and situations?
S – I’d say I’m inspired by non-fetish situations more often than not. I think if your primary inspiration is art within the same fetish you run the risk of your work becoming very insular and self-indulgent.
T – So behind most piece you make is a story? Let’s see… Do you remember the inspiration for this one?
T – Oh my! Now that’s a very clear inspiration!
S – it’s not always that direct
T – Do you have an example of such inspiration in mind?
S – not really. As I said, inspiration can come from anywhere: real situations, the way a person looks, etc.
T – I can very well see how getting inspiration from outside of your comfort zone is something that makes your art what it is. Now, if you had to give beginners in rendering /cgi one or more advices, What would they be?
S – to be prepared to learn things the hard way. Daz isn’t beginner friendly and there isn’t much in the way of documentation or tutorials. It takes a lot of time and trial-and-error to learn.
T – Are there things that you know now that you wish someone would have told you back then?
S – everything? learning things the hard way takes a long time
T – How long in your case? When did you begin to work with daz?
S – I first started playing around with it like, 10 years ago
T – Wow! Do you remember your first sensations when you first started this software? Was it the first time you went 3d?
S – it was. mostly just being baffled at the interface
T – You’ve come a long way in mastering this interface! Is daz your sole mean of creation? I think you’re editing as well?
S – No, I’m fairly well versed in photoshop, and other Creative Suite programs. We’ve talked previously about how I studied writing. I’ve also worked as photographer at the professional level.
T – Ahah yes! But these ones weren’t comprised in the interview yet. Writing and photography. We even spoke about the fact that all whether it was writing, photography, rendering… They all came down to the same single act : telling a story.
S – indeed!
T – … And sometimes telling stories along with other artists and personalities. You’ve done quite a few fantastic collaborations with miss Kaneda for instance. How are the both of you working together to tell a single story?
S – We’re actually taking a break from working together for now. She wants to focus on her own solo projects
T – Oh I should have used the past tense here then. Would you like to tell us about your upcoming projects then?
S – I’ve been writing more myself, and experimenting with new mediums, like rendering in 360 to make VR videos, and a bit of sound design too.
T – Oh yes! Your latest 360 projects were awesome…
Sound design you say? In a world of visuals, this is rather unusual and exciting. Do you have specific use in mind for sound design?
S – if you’ve seen the 360 videos, then you’ve heard it already!
T – I thought you delegated this part! It was great!
Well well well… I think this brings us near the end of our interview and…
Thank you soren for taking that time and being open about what you do. And thank you for your art. It matters.
S – Thank you!
