'Come away o human child
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand
For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand.'
I have zero natural artistic talent, hence my belief that anyone can teach themselves to draw to a certain point. I think the human form (or elvish or fae or whathaveyou) is beautiful. Various inspirations for me include music, other people's work, books, real life, and my own fevered imagination. My native medium is pencil (both mechanical and good ol' no. 2), but that is supplemented by forays into pen, colored pencil (I worship at the altar of Prismacolor) and the wonderful world of Photoshop.
