Hello, my name is Luke, I am an hobby artist and I would like to tell you a little more about me.

My interest in art started when I was very young, but it was on and off as I would get frustrated and bored, this lead to my skills developing very slowly.  By age 9 my Father -- who was also a very good artist may he rest in peace, bought me a book, I was 9 and this book had naked ladies, but it was artistic.

I started to study the book and copy drawings from it, I remember drawing a horse, a shore line and a house, I kept going back to the book but again I was getting frustrated and bored, I would copy ( not trace ) from magazines too, I was forever drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I had trouble drawing without copying and that always frustrated me, as I aged, my interests wandered elsewhere as I though It would never be good at drawing.

I dabbled in
  • Programming
  • Guitar
  • Piano
  • Digital Music Creation
  • Game Modification
  • Gaming
  • Engineering
  • Electronics
  • Woodwork
  • Gardening
  • Carving
  • Knitting
  • 3d Modelling and Animation
  • Website design
  • Full stack development
  • Streaming
  • Drinking ( it became a hobby!, I am 4 years sober now )
I became a Jack of trades, master of none... I really wanted to master something but I could not find a passion for anything.

Finally I found pixel art and I found this calming but struggled to find a good program for it, I used gimp mainly and it was frustrating, I remember doing it quite a bit in MS-DOS when I was younger and I found a passion for this, I eventually found some programs specifically for Pixels and I aint stopped since.

I took my work to twitter, people liked it and it kept me motivated, eventually I was asked how I did certain things, I created a tutorial and it was well recieved, this became my new hobby, helping others start out.

My first tutorial -
