I'm Helen, I come from a small country called Sweden, Scandinavia.
I'm a girl who loves fantasy and drawing. I like to read a lot of manga, and you can tell that by my gallery, which mostly all of my artwork is based down on manga characters. I do original characters too, but that is more of a rarity these days. Fanart is just too fun.
I focous on traditional fanart with color pencil, watercolors, markers, and just regular ink pens, acrylic. I'm a bit "old school" that way. I like to feel the pen and paper I use. And I like the smell of paint. For me those things are important.
I think of art as a talent, pure magic! I believe that you can do anything if you put your thoughts on a piece of paper. It is a way to express feelings and to communicate with other people. As the saying goes "a picture is worth a thousand words." You can say a lot with a drawing. Art is a language without words. People from all over the world can understand each other with drawings. That is the magic of art. And one of the things that makes art so special to me.
If you are wondering about my art skills, I can tell you that I've never actually attended in any art classes, and I don´t think I´ll ever will. I would like to call myself self educated. I do a lot of experimentation and I come up with my own techniques ( ? ) as I go along. But hey, that works for me. This is one of the fun parts, to see what works, and what isn't working at all
My goal is that day by day to push myself to new heights and develop as an "artist."
But this is only a hobby of mine, and I draw for myself and for my own pleasure.
If you like my art, that's great. But if you don't. Well then you don't I guess.
Like or comment on my art. That will definitely make my day. I can assure you of that.
And this is my little space of random stuff I draw up.
Thank you all for your help and support it really means a lot to me, and I will do my best not to disappoint you.
