My Bio
In the summer of 2009, I created this account with "Moygara," my friend from swim team who was also into anime (hence the username). At the time, anime wasn't a phase, it was a lifestyle. That and Neopets. Though they did turn out to be phases, they drove me to continuously practice drawing and inspired me to learn Photoshop and HTML/CSS, invaluable skills.

These days, as a working adult (paint formulator!), I focus on traditional realistic/semi-realistic paintings, most of which are of people and/or animals, though I occasionally dabble in digital painting/graphic design, photography, and sculpture. I have always loved faces, and I am constantly intrigued by the subtle color shifts I see in their skin, driving me to exaggerate and invent color shifts in my paintings, adding dimension and vibrancy. I have also grown fond of fabric patterns and mirrors/fragmentation of reality, and these interests are reflected in some recent works.

Please enjoy my gallery!

Well done! I like your rough yet detailed style on this drawing, especially in the bottom right corner: one the one hand, you have a very detailed tentacle, but on the other, you have some loose, wild marks that don't form coherent shapes. You have a very interesting concept, and all of your perspective looks right to me. The composition is nice except I am a little bothered by the octopus' head being right in the center of the drawing. One way to make the drawing really pop is to thicken lines in the foreground to bring the tentacles forward. Similarly, darkness brings your drawing forward, whereas lightness sends it back, the reverse of your composition. If you need to put lightness in the foreground, you can use contrast between light spots and either thick lines or the darkness of any shadows. Overall, you've done a wonderful job, but there is always room for improvement! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
