I'm a college student majoring in film production, whether it be the idea, the eye, or the editor, I don't know yet. I'm hoping to minor in art and I'm pretty sure I'll be able to accomplish that.
With all the pictures i've used references with I am able to memorize the pictures and re draw them again without using any reference at all and in different poses. I rarely use references when it comes to my work unless its for a strong realistic picture.
My medium is usually pencil or acrylics. I prefer pencil because it's easiest to work with on a regular basis. Paints are fun but I need a LOT of area to mess around so I usually don't do them. Color pencil is another medium I enjoy except I hate how it looks after scanning.
I gain inspiration through music (Nightwish!!!) and other beautiful pictures I've seen on this site. I've took many art classes, charcoal and pencil, watercolor, oil painting, acrylic and a sci-fi class. Some of them will have those media, some wont, it's just had to create with little time I have.
Enjoy my small gallery, I'll have more to come later if I just doodle a bit. hehe. thanks!

replies: "usually names like that come to me out of no where. I had the name and character for years so I couldn’t tell you exactly. I seriously think I might have been meditating or dreaming and it came. "
