My Bio
I got into art/drawing when I was 10 years old. It wasn't till college that I was introduced to PhotoShop, and I think that it's a rather understatement to say that I fell in love with the program. From all the classes that I took, and all the programs that I learned in all my years of college, PhotoShop was the only one I never lost touch with. It became my best friend, as sad and pathetic as this may sound, but I sought to make of PhotoShop as much a part of me as my own hands. God has been there with me throughout my journey, and without Him I am nothing, nor can I accomplish a single feat.

Current Residence: New York (unfortunately)
Favourite genre of music: Christian, Classical, Instrumental, Movie Scores
Favourite style of art: Fantasy, conceptual, digital painting, drawing
Operating System: Windows & Mac
MP3 player of choice: Currently an old LG phone and an iPhone.
Skin of choice: Mine and my significant other

Personal Quote: If you're on time, you're late!

Yeah I know I'm way late in writing this, but due to copyright laws and all that good stuff, I had to take down my favorite deviation of Angel Sophia. I wanted to be legit and asked the photographer if I could post the image, but since he has no rights to it, he asked me to take it down, and down it came. :( I'm hoping to upload newer things and different things as well. I'm still working on getting my photography reeady to go up, and also some stock. Other than that, I'm not wanting to be a designer anymore as it is rather a burden for me... Professionally I mean. I do LOVE it as a hobby. I'll update more at a later time. God bless you all.

So I have not written a journal entry in quite some time. I haven't had much to say really. But here I am now looking for words to say. I've gotten a few comments on my latest work Elven Lore (http://fav.me/d397hc6), quite a few more comments than any of my other pieces. I'm actually quite proud of this new piece. Along with Angel Sophia (http://fav.me/d2vo4xp) I think these are my best work thus far. I'm currently working on another deviation, but I don't know that it will top either of those two pieces. Though time will tell, and I'm still experimenting w/ it, so who knows, lightning

I've just woken up from a very nice sleep, and seemingly I cannot fall back to my restful slumber. So perhaps some writing might be somewhat therapeutic. I have not uploaded anything new in quite a bit of time now, so I'm thinking as to what I would like to upload for my next deviation. Then I began thinking, not everything I post, as far as graphics are concerned, has to be a photo-manip or my old drawings. I can also create effects and other PhotoShop filter-generated images. With that in mind, I will dig through some of my older work and upload some of the ones I find interesting or that appeal to me. On a random note, I just looked over
