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:

Barely into the 3rd month of the year by now but as of late it seems that 2015 is going to be a very generous year for me if things keep up :D After just a week being back from a short but enjoyable absence that almost went bust but didn't, I had to face the day I was dreading for ages - the day I finally took my driving test. I'm sure I speak for many artistic types when I say I (and probably many of you guys too) aren't naturally the driving kind. We artists tend to prefer to avoid leaving the comfort of our own creative spaces :shifty: But out of recent need to know how to drive (and way too many years slowly building up to it) I thought I'd try my luck and go for the test. If I wasn't skilled then I was damn lucky since I made it on my first try :w00t: Then again, seeing how some other people are on the road - I had a feeling I couldn't possibly be that bad. But nailing something like that on my first attempt felt pretty damn good :winner:

I even planted a commemorative palm tree in a vacant spot in my garden today to mark the day I did the thing that everybody thought I'd never do, including myself :D
And to make it even better, these Badass Boots by priteeboy arrived. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a giant package waiting for me, knowing I got something really cool and unique in there waiting for me. Gotta find a place where I can wear these bad boys now :plotting:

Well, enough gloating for now. I have art to finish. Gallery's looki'n a little dry at the moment :ohnoes:

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

Badass Boots by priteeboy
Badass Boots
Not that I designed these, but upon arriving today I was so overjoyed they finally got here that I just had to show e'm off. Might look like they go with my jacket, buuut the jacket is a different red, so not so sure :hmm: I do like this more intense red more though. I plan on wearing them to a convention later this year, hopefully I'll get some decent full-body shots then while I'm actually in them :D

Well, I'm back...Wait, no-one knew I was gone! :paranoid: Well that's just how elusive I am (plus I was only offline for three days, still not enough time to be declared internet dead) but dammit I need a new journal entry that wasn't written two seasons ago :shakefist:

Anyway, I was on a short trip to see a spectacular example of a tropical garden that I've been pining to see for years but is only ever open to the public for a few days each year. A little known fact about me - I'm as passionate about gardening as I am about digital art, though - with the kind of work I often do that's very nature-heavy, it probably doesn't come as much surprise, and tropical ones are the holy grail for those like me, seeking to create paradise of their own. The visit was almost lost due to terrible weather conditions on all but the last day. And it turns out the last day, was the last last day, I didn't find out 'till I was there that the owner won't be doing it anymore. I really lucked out, especially since I got to meet the creator personally. I have pictures, but haven't sorted and uploaded any yet, but some internet photo's of the place come up like this. See? not too far from the way some of my digital artworks look after all, you can sorta tell where some of my inspiration comes from, and I was just there days ago.

After enjoying a meal in a nice coastal town on the way back with just my parents - something I almost never get to do on my weekends, little did I know that it was actually all happening on my 9th dA birthday :omg: Yep, I was offline for the time I ticked over to nine. Just one more year and I'll be in the double digits. The garden is actually quite the perfect analogy for deviantART and the things I do here - the older it gets, the better it is, and the more motivated I get to keep it going :)
Anti Hero Leather Jacket - Grey by priteeboy
Anti Hero Leather Jacket - Grey
A different version of my Anti Hero Leather Jacket Design submitted earlier. While I did spend most of the working time on it looking like this, I decided to make the grey areas black at the last minute on the first submission but then decided to upload this one with grey on it separately anyway (it's only in my scraps because I didn't want two submissions that were 90% the same in my gallery, not because I think any less of this version ;))

Original jacket design and illustration remains my copyrighted artwork. Do not use or modify without my permission.

I thought you should know this:
You know I NEVER do tags, but to this one I do a single one time exception. Its to beautiful not to
Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to all deviants who deserve it (Or as many or few as you want). If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!HeartHugs Anne

I must admit - usually when I see tag-comments I generally roll my eyes and ignore it. But that was really nice to read. Thankyou :bow:

Yes, that was my feeling first, too. 
But I like to let people know how much
I really like them and I found that was a beautiful way to do so.
