I don't draw self portraits, per say, but here! This is my first character I made in SWTOR, Calaghan!

I started drawing as a youngster since I was jealous to one of my friends. I always had the mindset to try and be good at everything. Even though I realize that I can't possibly ever fulfill that, I try my hardest at everything. It's not all too healthy though, considering I might criticize myself or my art too much and only see the mistakes I made. But the beauty of art lies in the eye of the beholder; others don't see what I see.

The only proper education in regards to art was probably in high school, where I studied it for three years. Even then I'd more or less say I'm self taught. Moving from traditional art to digital art was a funny step, considering I had zero idea what I was doing when it came to digital. Now it's the opposite, in where I have zero idea what to do with traditional art and know more on how to handle digital art.

Roleplay, people and surroundings have always been an inspiration for me. It's the people that inspire me to strive forward and roleplay that give me the ideas. Without the support I've got from strangers around the internet, I don't think I'd be where I am today.

I do also have a look at other artists! It's funny how they can inspire you to try new styles, themes or things. I know that happens to me, since I usually try out different styles every now and then, instead of sticking to my usual style (that's related to impressionism in most cases -- it means to capture images without detail but with bold colour and strong strokes of a brush --, but I do mix it up with realism). 

If you've made it this far in the brief and vague biography, I'd also like to thank you for sticking with me thus far! All in all, I'd like to say that don't be afraid to get out there and out from your comfort zone. As roleplayers, we crave for adventure in the end, one way or another.


Have any questions or further ponderings? You can shoot me an e-mail »here« , or go further stalk my art »at tumblr«. I'm a pleb and happened to delete my deviant some while back, so that's out of option unfortunately.
