I started drawing and painting digitally almost two years ago thanks to my roommate. He let me borrow his Wacom tablet often and the rest is history.

Most of my artwork is referenced based, because that way, I can work on techniques without stressing over coming up with something new and original. I unfortunately don't get as much art work done as I want to, because I tend to get distracted. Most of it was due to school work, and even now after graduating, being jobless, and living at home with my family, I still get distracted.

That's mainly because I am an avid gamer.

I am also working on a novel, trying to read more books (only have read like 20 over the course of my lifetime) and of course, every day occurrences that aren't planned.

Its funny...my biggest distractions are my biggest inspirations. Seriously, my favorite piece is a fan art of Legion, my favorite squad mate from ME2, which I submitted to BioWare (the developer of the series) for their Comic Con fan art contest. It even made the cut and was one of the 216 printed and on display at their booth!

I managed to get into a Digital Painting in Photoshop at my local CC, and the professor is a guy with 15 years experience in the industry. I have learned so much in that class!

But as of now, it's just a hobby. One that I seriously plan on improving.

So long winter.  

BioShock Infinite is such a trip.  
Been writing and reading more (yay!).
Still working on my art.  

Job's been keeping me real busy; that and school.  Its funny, now that I have a job, I miss all the free time I had.

Here's to hopes and dreams.
