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.

I've been practicing characters and experimenting with different ways of rendering them.  They're different than my landscapes so I've been trying to apply my style to characters and it's been quite a challenge.  I think a painterly style suites me more.  Though, more practice will determine this.

Let me know what you think.

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!

I used your art "Peabody Gate" as a fantasy background for a silly fanart manipulation over on tumblr.…
I gave you credit as the artist for the background, but if you'd rather I take it down I will.
If you're fine with me using it as long as I give credit, would it be okay if I posted it to my own DA gallery?

I love all your background art! They're really great and something I inspire to do as well. Like you, I'm a science student by trade but art is my hobby and passion, and I want to take it further. Keep up the good work and continue painting! w00t! 

P.s. here's a llama badge for you! :D (Big Grin)
