Newest Deviations

Been drawing almost daily since I was a toddler, I tried digital for the first time in 2001 but didn't adopt it as a serious and regular medium until coming here and working harder at it in 2006. I have invested thousands of hours and dollars in this hobby just in the past few years alone - please don't steal what I've dedicated everything I have to perfecting :police:

P.S - everything before the deviation "Burgundy Breeze" was drawn before I got my drawing tablet - proof that you can still do some awesome shit by mouse if you try hard enough ;)

As much as I wish it was me on the cover of something (obscure modelling fantasies come true :shh:) I got the next best thing, my art featured on the cover of a legitimate magazine about CG artwork!
I had once been an interviewed artist in 3D Art Direct Magazine before, and was called back as an encore preview when they caught sight of my recent calendar work. This time around one of mine was even used on the front cover for issue 36 here :D

And just like that I'm out of stuff to talk about. Talk about an uneventful four months since my last. Oh well, no news is good news, I'm too busy and too tired for me to do stuff :shakefist:

Matthew Attard
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Australia
Throughout my life I have always been a very visual and creative person. So developing an interest in art was practically in the bag, starting out traditionally for many years as I grew up and then converting to digital since I favoured that more. I've had very little professional training particularly in 2D, much of which I have just picked up through my own self experimentation. I learned some remedial 3D skills from a course though, But I'll always know more about 2D and don't consider myself to be a "true" 3D artist, often my 3D is mixed with 2D for maximum effect.
I take a shine to anything that looks interesting, probably why I see such fascination in the natural world. But I even get inspired by games or fashion etc in regards to character drawings especially, That's where the whole Final fantasy/Japanese love comes in!

I'm usually a hobbyist artist for most of the time as I do not work for any studio's or companies. I do commissioned works as the offers come (I can be e-mailed regarding that) But nothing beats doing art for your own personal enjoyment!

If off-dA viewers wish to contact me regarding commissions, features etc, e-mail me at: matthew.attard1988@gmail.com

You are a true artist; i.e. a person so skilled at their art that you influence others to redefine what they can imagine and create.

Well I do have this priteeboy.deviantart.com/art/P… It's not really a tutorial but it shows a piece from start to finish. Though my landscape ones go through a  different process.
