I've been in Deviant art for so long now... I don't even remember anymore. I'm sure it sais somewhere in my page.... meh... But I started my art at the age of 10 as a Pixel Artist, made some excellent bases here and there some very questionable dolls, and then I wanted to expand my art a bit more, draw better human anatomy, with in the last 5 ish maybe even 7 ish years, I decided I would try drawing animals... HARDEST thing I ever did. Learned a few techniques watched a few live streams, learned more stuff.
I am still learning new things, tweaking my style every day. I feel that I am a bit more comfortable with animals it helps that I have the perfect little models at home X3 (my 3 cats).
Recently (I say recent but it's probably been 2 or three years now) I've started playing a bit with backgrounds. I dropped adobe photoshop, I felt like it was hindering me with all of the brushes. now I pretty much use Paint Tool Sai all of the time now. I love how it turns out, everyday trying new things growing with my art.
I hope to try Tile sets soon, I've been keeping an eye out there on some of those gorgeous tile set designs. we'll see I am not sure just yet. <3
