Amazing Artists Showcase

Hello watchers and fans and all you awesome people! :) I'd like to share my process here, as well as my tutorials. Many ask me 'How do you make this art?' 'What great talent you have!' I'd like to say: This isn't talent. This is the product of four years of pursuing art, sketching, painting, learning, and studying. No, not studying in university, either. I am largely self taught, and learned all the external information from books and free online tutorials.

We are all able to learn art. Every single person can. We build our ambition and motivation. Some people draw to enjoy themselves, some paint for the career, some simply love creating what is in their mind and transferring that to paper (or screen). Usually it is a mix of these. The point is: they have a reason, and some goal (even if it is simply to finish the piece of art).

Take your passions, embrace the motivation when it comes, and remember the motivation when it seems to fade. Because we can't afford to wait for the mood, we have to make the mood! :D

I really love sharing my 'How-To' and process work, because I want you, my fans, to be able to learn and build your own motivation. So ask me questions, comment on my paintings with insights and thoughts, message or note me here or on Facebook. I'm a normal person just like you, and I'd love to meet you. :)

Personal stuff now. :P My life is going brilliantly! Really positive and enthusiastic with my new job, new coworkers, and, but of course, my art and novel continue! Please head over to my fb pages (links below) to like, comment, and chat! :D…
