|Wanted to develop my traditional art skills; rusty after leaving it for over a decade.|
A journalist and writer for practically my entire adult life. I've always loved to draw but was discouraged from doing so because it wasn't "practical" and "reliable."|
Now, I'm trying to make up for lost time and although I know I have little chance of going professional, I still have hope. I am completely self-taught so if any professional masters out there wanna give me some pointers, that'd be great. I'm a horror/fantasy/sci fi fan, be it movies, TV or books. Love it so much, I married a geek. Although I try to do "serious" art, I am not averse to doing fanart so you'll see them peppering my gallery, if not now, definitely later down the road.
I also do commissions. Note me if you'd like me to create something for you. My rates may not be as low as some non-professional dA artists, but I settled on them based on my cost of living expenses. As it is, I'm lucky not to have to depend on my commission income as I would likely have starved by now.
Feel free to say hi. I don't bite ... not really. And if you like what you see, fave and watch. It's a huge compliment always to see people respond to my art. Plus, check out my Favorites. The artists in my collection are all extremely talented and exceptional; artists that inspire me.
P.S. My tumblr is a bit dusty, but I occasionally update it. So don't be disappointed if you see tumbleweeds.
