Just started drawing again after being artistically dormant for many years (17 give or take) so, please bear with me as I try to find my 'muse' again while shaking off all the rust.
I am a self taught hobbyist who had always enjoyed drawing (mostly with pencil and paper) and had even considered majoring in Fine Arts in college (much to the delight of my ever encouraging high school art teacher). But, sadly enough... that whole idea just never did pan out since both RL and my family had other plans for me.
And so... I now find myself here on DA wanting to try to create my own fan art (whenever RL allows me the time to indulge) for such beloved fandoms as A Song of a Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Supernatural and The Hobbit. While also trying to teach myself how to draw again and eventually learn how to paint (which I never had been very good at traditionally) in both Corel Painter 12 and Photoshop CS5 through the reading of books and watching of videos.
So I think it's pretty much safe to say, that I really do have my work cut out for me, don't you think?
Aaah, the fandoms that kick-start one's muse ... you just gotta love em.
