I'll keep it short and sweet.

I found out I liked drawing May 27th, 2015. Since then, I've been relentlessly studying everything I possibly can, and as methodically as possible. I've treated art as I would any other scientific subject-- there are things that work, things that don't, and logical reasons for both. There are unspoken rules and ways that people learn that aren't very well documented, and for people like me who are NOT creative, they are very difficult to learn because of the generally emotional way artists tend to learn and teach.

I have never loved anything in my life, not even art-- but it's the closest damned thing, and I have dedicated my life since I started to becoming as fluent as possible with as much art as possible.

I also want to one day inspire others like me-- technical, logical artists who want to create believable and realistic things from their imaginations, who want to captivate and inspire new ideas in others.

I want to motivate people like me, who suffer from mental illness such as depression and bipolar disorder to cast their shackles aside and use their weaknesses as their greatest strengths, or at the very least break through them.

I don't have any particular affinity for any artists or styles other than "realism" and "believability". I design things based on research and how something would realistically develop-- a dragon would not develop huge spines unless there was a reason. Other artists would draw them this way because "it looks intimidating".

I think you can make something both believable and logical, AND practical. One day I will be capable of that.
