    I draw and paint stuff! I love the photo realistic style, so thats what I aim for. I'm self taught (except a few high school courses), and I've been drawing since I was about...10 years old? Maybe earlier...

    I take commissions! So if you have a shot of your kids or pet you would like drawn or painted, let me know. Just send me a PM on here.

    You'll make more in the commercial end, going after corporate clients. Ought to be some opportunities in the Chicago area for good illustration work. Network with ad agencies and graphic design studios. Good luck. BTW 2 and 4 are your strongest pieces, in that order. The landscape is a notch below IMHO.


    BTW, just looked at your link with your pricing. You need to add a zero after each amount, otherwise you will not be taken seriously. It's all about perception. Also, I would not feature "Gothic Rose", for is not up to par as well.

    Very nice. I like photorealism too. But I can't draw, so I use hyper real hdr.

    Get on Artslant and Tumblr if you have not already done so.

    WOW! Amazing! I'm SO jealous... I can "draw" on the computer, but not THAT well. You have talent :)

    Those are really nice. I can barely draw a circle.

    Thank you all! I just felt like sharing today :)

    I'm just getting started in watercolor, so I don't really know what I'm doing. I thought it was pretty though, so I posted it, lol. I don't take the DeviantArt account too seriously, that site is mostly flooded with 12 year olds drawing anime and creepy "pro" photogs displaying their "artistic nudes" which are verging on porn, IMO.

    As you can see, artwork is more personal for me. I'm not really looking to make a living off of it right now. It's just something I do to pass the time and challenge myself. If someone happens to want to commission something, I'm always more than happy to do it.

    I have a Deviant Art account with one thing..lol. No nudes. I have found some great textures on that site for personal use.

    I am jealous. If my pencil drawings were half as nice, I'd be happy!

    Nope, the first one is Amy Lee of the band Evanescence.

    Thanks for all your kind comments!
