Ever since I was a kid, I have loved to draw. I think that's how I ruined my eyesight, by bending too closely over sketchpads under bad light. ;p Although I love watercolors, I am better with drier mediums such as pencils and oil pastels. I took some art classes in high school and another summer course at Cooper Union Art School years ago. Gave up art as a career when I decided to go to NYU for college. Nowadays, I do some CG art whenever I have time. I really like this medium! It allows cool effects that are really hard if done manually. At this stage, I am still an amateur CG artist, learning at my very own slow pace. Since I love anime so much, naturally my drawing style has been influenced by it. Right now, I'm experimenting with other subject compositions using Photoshop. Hopefully a decent picture of my cat will be finished soon! *o*
