Still a kid at heart, I very much love to do anything creative... not mention, love to play, whether it be artistically-speaking, or otherwise. My mentality, as far as my work goes, can be that of a child sometimes. The whole "I wish I could do that" kinda of thought, that a child would think they could do one day. Thing is, lack of practice is my demise and something I would like to overcome. My lack of practice has come by way of procrastination, which I feel I've not only acquired through the "can't" thought, but also due to my perfectionism. If I can't, or don't do it perfectly the first time, why bother. Another thing I'd like to overcome. Something I'm hoping to do through DeviantArt.
About why I chose "Varied" as my "area", if you will, is due to me a Jack of all trades... and a master of none. I have skills in drawing, though I would say they are intermediate, at best. Sad to say, I've been drawing since I was a child, something I lost my time and thoughts with, and somehow rarely picked up a pencil in recent years of adulthood. I have a Bachelor's in Computer Science with a concentration in Animation and Graphic Design. More skills I should hone on - those of the computer, or the software, therein contained. I also have skills in painting things, not so much painting, per say. More like miniatures, ceramics, mugs, kinda thing. I'm self taught in jewelry and chain mail, which I enjoy as well, and is a skill I usually use in times of gift giving. Same goes for painting. I am also a professional make up artist, using the airbrush, various special effects make up, as well as traditional make up. I've also taken up a workshop in airbrushing to brush up on my skills, no pun intended.
So, here you will find various things from me. Hopefully using DeviantArt (per a friend's suggestion I'd sign up for), I'll find my niche, or something I'm more passionate about.
