I got into art in the late 90's (high school time). What funny is that I was never really into art growing up, however one day I was watching those old Hercules and Xena TV shows of VHS and a girl came on the screen that I thought was beautiful and I had simply thought... 'hmmm, I want to try and capture what I see on paper'
I draw a quick sketch and found myself in awe! The next day I tried drawing another face and when I compared my previous day's picture, it made the first portrait look like utter trash. BAM! a new talent was born. You could of never of called me an artist then, however I kept challenging myself with each picture.
Artwork was always a pick-up hobby for me. Sometimes putting it down for several several months at a time. Perhaps even years. As of 2013 I have rediscovered a new talent when it came to shading when drawing a portrait of my son wearing my old hardhat. I also discovered this website and see the other artist on here and am amazed and inspired!
I enjoy other arts as well such as Photography, (fantasy) writing, and woodworking/metal working just to mention a few
