I am into digital painting, traditional pencil art and DSLR photography.
Since lately, I've also been trying with water color pencils.

I draw since I was a little boy and strong enough to hold a pencil. Actually I started with foil markers and copying motifs of the ninja turtles onto foils. 5 to 7 years ago, I bought my first and still used graphics tablet Wacom Graphire 4 Classic. Today I have a lot of practise with it and GIMP, an amazing freeware. But still a lot to learn. An interesting fact, that you can never really stop getting better at arts.

Progress is unstoppable, as long as you keep going. Even the best among us still grow...

Cheers, Alex.

Yeah, well. I tried out something new, color pencils. Even those, that can be used with aquarell technique. But somehow deep down in my heart, I prefer, what I am best at. So it were only 3 tries of new ways, before I took one of these traditional work pieces and made a digital painting out of it, where I can still spend hours only for slight changes.

BTW: DeviantArt has been really slow the last couple of days?!
