I’ve always loved to draw, ever since I was a child. In 2005 I took a more serious interest in art. I bought a How To book, a sketch pad, some pencils, and started practicing. Everything I’ve done thus far is self-taught. Along the way I’ve had help from my Mom, who is a very talented artist in her own right.
In 2007 I decided to join a popular art community called DeviantArt. I’ve met some fabulous artists on that site, who help and encourage on a daily basis. They’re also my best critics and friends. I’m known on that site as tanabatablossom
Most of my art is traditional pencil work. I work with mechanical pencils in HB, 2H and 2B. My favorite paper to work on is Strathmore Bristol Smooth and Vellum. The sizes I prefer to work on are 11 x 14 inches and 14 x 17 inches.
For my digital work, I use Adobe Photoshop CS3 and a Wacom Intuos 4 graphics tablet.
My art can be grouped into 4 categories:
- Pin-Ups (classic and modern)
- Fantasy Art
- Fan Art (Movies, TV & Games, Celebrities)
Be warned that some of my pin-up and fantasy art may contain some mild nudity. If you’re not mature enough to view it, then I suggest you turn away.
