    It was 4 years back when i wanted to conquer

    the world. I started drawing as a kid and at 12 discovered my artistic abilities when i would create something and be appreciated for it. Those were the best moments in my otherwise depressing childhood/ teen years as i was an underdog barely known at school, the misfit, the...

    Inspired By My Best Friend On Ep :)

    Hey Art fans! :) I'm back with another step-by-step demonstration of my work. This time I used my day off EP to start work on a portrait of a horse. I have been inspired by the work of one of my friends, and though this is nothing like the style that she does, it is, at...

    I have always loved being creative.

    Writing,painting you name it. My art teacher hated my work. My English teacher adored my writing. I guess in that art class I was lonely. Nobody takes art seriously so I was the only student. That made my teacher hard on me. Then I insulted her and got suspended. Chaos is my...

    I enjoy drawing and writing short stories.

    My latest interest is woodworking. Instead of following plans, I create wooden furniture from my imagination.

    People who make comics

    and webcomics should be really proud of themselves. That's a heck of a lot of work. Last year I tried turning a book I was working on into a web comic. I sketched out a few chapters but only actually inked 3 pages. I know I'm a good artists, but usually when I draw people and it...

    I am a Thief. Whenever I go,

    I steal. I take pictures of beautiful images. And I keep them all, all of them for free, in a drawer of a pile of my existing memories. The memories, which may be drawn out later again, by me. I need to gain the access to it by the only key I own, I refuse to share. I don’t...

    My best art is created at approximately 3am.

    Whenever I actually need sleep, I make the best art. Whenever I actually need to get a piece done for a due date during the day, it just doesn't work out. Creativity only seems to happen when in wants to happen.

    Many people have asked me in the past,

    "Do you want to be an artist when you grow up?" If you have a passion for expressing yourself through art, you're an artist. Becoming an artist doesn't require a submission of an application. If it's a paycheck you're interested in, you may want to reconsider whether you are an...

    after I graduate but everyone who sees my art knows me.. So I feel like their opinions might be a tad biased. Please rate my skills and tell me if my dream is at all a possibility.
