I'm a software engineer by trade. I've been a hobbyist in art my whole life. I've recently just kicked my art up into high gear, trying to improve and get the art out of me that I've always wanted to create.

Interests
It feels like my art has gone to the next level.  It feels really good now when I start sketching.  People and buildings are getting a little easier for me, landscapes still rock so I thought I'd just take a minute to highlight how I got to this point.

Practice, lots and lots of it. I know that sounds a little cliche and it probably is a bit, but honestly, that's all I've been doing is practicing.  I digital paint nearly every day.  Sometimes I just sketch black and whites all day long just pulling what I see out of the chaos.  Besides the practice, I would have to say that commissions also helped me get to this point.  Sometimes I get commissioned to do things that I'm not really comfortable with so it makes me buckle down and try harder.  While I hate doing things I'm not really not proficient at doing, it forces me to adapt and overcome.

So I guess the lesson is, practice doing things you love, but also go outside of your comfort zone and do art that you normally wouldn't do.  These two things will help your art improve and move it to the next level.

So go level up!

:D

Thank you for sharing your art - it makes methink of hundreds of beautiful places and stories and could just drag me away to a land of imagination :)
You are a great artist :)
And - I really appreciate your short comments but still adding a lot of background to your pictures... I get the feeling, that I come to know a lot about the background without reading books :) :P
