This is a little off-topic:
Form my diploma thesis (Designing and marketing an illustrated collection of poems and short stories by Edgar Allan Poe) I am conducting a consumer survey to help optimizing the positioning of my product at the market.
I would be very glad if you'd help my with that by answering a few questions.

But I think best to start with my own story:
I came to art through the Dungeons and Dragons manual Edition 3.5 and especially the works of Todd Lockwood. I immediately grabbed a pencil and tried to draw our own RPG-group. That was at age 15, I think.
From that on art was always a hobby for me. I couldn't even imagine myself becoming an artist or illustrator. Back then I wanted to become a scientist. It wasn't untill I strugled through my sixth form Physics and Math courses that I noticed I wouldn't be able to do this stuff all day. So I listened to my heart and ddecided the only thing I could do all day, day-to-day, was art.
I applied for a designschool a year before the end of my highschool years, got acepted and half a year after highschool started studying Communication and Graphicdesign.
Now I'm in my 6th of 9 semester.
Right now I have a bazillion ideas in my head about projects but about zero time to get to all of them. There are 3 comicbook ideas, 3 ideas for an artbook and even an idea for what I think would be a great movie. But for the moment, I try to tackle one of that artbooks, which would be a collection of related series of paintings. Let's see what will come out of that.
P.S.: Don't forget I'm curious to hear your stories.

Don't get me wrong, no brush in the world can make you skip fundamentals. There is no anatomy brush or perspective brush (although there are grid brushes but they won't help if you don't know how to use them).
So why am I here then?"
