been drawing for as long as I could remember. I took my first art
class when I was six years old, and walked out on it that same day
because they told us to draw a forest. I didn't feel like drawing
a forest. I was never good at drawing what others told me to, only
what I truly wanted to. Oh I doodle a lot, but it still takes me a
gigantic amount of inspiration to actually sit down and commit to
drawing a formal picture. Drawing is incredibly draining for me,
so I can only do so in rare windows of intense passion about a
subject, using this fountain of energy to carry me through the
process of putting it down on real or virtual paper.
always had my own style, but I learned to draw from Disney
cartoons. The influence Disney had on my style was quite strong,
and is evident by how happy everybody looks in my older pictures.
Nowadays I try to draw darker stuff. They still tend to look happy
or not as dark as I'd like, but I'm getting better. Japanese
animation is the most notable influence on my style the past few
years, which basically means that my people tend to look a lot
younger than they should and the guys look like girls. But I like
them a lot better that way. ^_^
preferred medium is either markers & colored pencils or
digital art, although watercolors are one medium I've always
wanted to learn. I never draw what I see (there are cameras for
that :P), but only draw what I envision with my mind's eye in my
attempts to bridge the gap between the tangible world of the
ordinary with the intangible world of magic and dreams. As such my
primary inspirations are faery tales, myths, and most prominently,
my own stories. It is very very rare to catch me drawing something
without an extensive story behind it.
without further adieu, here's the list of the Art galleries, and
why I organized them the way I did...
gallery contains those pictures pertaining to my inner
reality, that is, things I believe exist inside me. Mostly
this means stuff pertaining to my Caldora and Lossi story
worlds, but occasionally it contains pictures with simply
gallery contains those pictures pertaining to my outer reality, that is, things I believe exist
outside me... such as you. This also includes my past
lives and more cosmic-oriented stories that I believe
either happened, are reminiscent of something that
happened, or are symbolic of something that happened.
gallery contains those pictures pertaining to others'
realities as interpreted by me. If the world, the
character, or the story is not of my making, you would
find it here. I rarely get inspired by another's
creations, so those I imitate here have my highest of
very misleading Wallpapers gallery contains the
masterpieces of the dreamers who shaped our Earth; Mother
Nature's own self-expression which sets the precedent for
what art really is. Personally, I consider photography plagiarizing
God/dess, but since I give it full credit I hope it can
forgive me. ^_~ Pictures alone do these lands no justice.
