My Bio
Hi, I'm Rob. I'm 26 and I live in a lovely little house, in a pokey little village, on my one'sy.

By day, I'm a software developer - primarily around web-based software. This includes PHP, Javascript (jQuery/Ajax inc), MySQL, HTML and CSS. It's not the most exotic job in the world, but I love doing two things - coding and drawing. Since I prefer to draw, I'm glad my day job is coding - as I wouldn't want my favourite hobby to be my day job! I do love my job though. :)

Since becoming single in June this year, when I get home, I fire my computer on and break out the tablet - and I just start drawing with a nice cuppa coffee and some music - the time seems to fly by and I think it takes my mind off things - which is why I have become so attached to it, I think.

Some stuff is literally terrible, some stuff is just random - quick 5 minute pieces, such as my Joker picture on here - but then other times, I spend a LONG time trying to create a beautiful piece. Doesn't always work out, but hey! I keep on trying and sometimes, a little gem might pop up!

I'm only just getting back in to digital art after a good solid 5 or 6 years away from it. Before going mental and spending too much money on a top end Wacom tablet, I figured I'd go for a little Bamboo and get used to it again. I love to just sit and listen to music and draw away. :)

I've been using Deviant Art for years and years, but only to look at other peoples work - so I never bothered signing up - and here I am these days, uploading images. So... there we go!

I hope you enjoy some of my Deviations. I know some stuff isn't everyone's taste, but I assure you - I will upload a lot in the coming months and hopefully atleast one may appease your eyes. :)

... this playing in your ears. http://www.listenonrepeat.com/watch/?v=CMk7lsHvRoc It's a Youtube video fed through YoutubeRepeat. This song is so... nom nom. I could literally listen to it all day. I think music like this really improves my artwork because of how relaxed it makes me feel, and being relaxed, it helps to let my hands and arms just move without thought. Try it. :)

Wrist is killing!

After all that doodlin' - my wrist is thoroughly nailed. :')
