Decided to take a stab at doing linework again. Tried using a different brush setting and I like it so far. Drew my character's portrait from Final Fantasy 14: ARR. Go Miqo'te!!

Trying to catch up on some Dexter on Netflix. A couple episodes in of Season 5. I'd like to be able to do a collage of this.

I've been in the mood for painting a lot lately. I think the break is a little over done though ... I think I've been away for a year with little drawing/painting. I haven't been doing anything other than working, eating, sleeping, and taking care of my responsibilities at home. I miss painting a lot.

I decided a few days ago to get back into it, I'd start painting small. From what I can tell, it's taking a bit but I'm still trying to get the hang of painting digitally. Surprisingly enough, the tutorial I followed of the Human Eye turned out much better than I anticipated for my skill level. From there I guess I should just paint, paint, paint!

Short term wise, I'm thinking I just want to be better. Long term? I haven't decided. Before I had a goal in mind; I wanted to be a concept artist. My problem was both finances and taking away time from my kids and girlfriend. Is it more of a hobby? Hard telling. What I want seems so far out of reach. I suppose it might just be my mindset, but reality hit me kind of hard. There are so many talented artists out there; the chances of me being noticed I think is pretty low. 

But I decided that I won't be afraid to keep trying to draw and paint. I'll work my 45 hour a week IT job, and continue to support my family. But to support my needs, I 'need' to paint. I can feel it that it's in my veins. Someday, I hope to unlock my full potential. Maybe, just maybe, someone will take notice and my art work will make people smile. Make people gaze in awe, be inspired. Someday, I'll be able to communicate to people how I feel. I want the world to know that I exist, and there's a place in the world for me.

Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
I am from the Chicagoland area. When I was in high school I had taken all the art courses I could to delve into my fascination with drawing. Life happened out of high school, and I had taken an 8 year hiatus. Finally, I've decided to follow what I was once afraid to do and grow to become a concept artist/freelance illustrator someday. I have always been fascinated with concept art for video games and film. I have recently started my journey to try to pursue that and am trying to learn everything I can about the art. I am now an online student of Academy Art University of California to receive my BFA in Illustration. I am looking for any training, mentorship, and guidance to direct me towards that goal and become a better artist, make friends along the way, and become a better person.
