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:

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!

Platinum Gaze by priteeboy
Platinum Gaze
Not sure if title is really cool or really lame :paranoid: But this self portrait was taken on whim on a day I was particularly happy with how my hair looked and I figured it would make a decent new ID for my profile anyway since it's a more current representation of me.

Not a very exciting upload after all this time of no new material, I know. But I do have some more stuff on the way very soon :)

Where Subscriber's Money REALLY Goes by priteeboy
Where Subscriber's Money REALLY Goes
So you thought that otherisland you saw years ago is where all your subscriptions premium membership funds went ay? Well April Fools! That was just a cover-up for what dA was really spending your tax points on :paranoid:

A new logo begs for a new island shaped like it, bigger, better and with room for all the things people said should have been on the first. Just don't change your logo again deviantART, or I'll have to make you a continent next time around, and I'm not made of continents! :shakefist:

OK so I actually started this late last year, not long after the new logo was released. It was meant to be done before Christmas but life got in the way and it took up until now to get it finished. Better late than never, deviant-land wasn't built in a day :no: I pulled out a little bit of everything I use to create this one in both software and technique, with 3D modelling, Vue, digital painting and matte-painting all combining forces to take on this monster task. I'm just glad it's done and hope you guys thought it was worth the wait.

Update: Due to popular demand, a Fella-shaped "Statue of Artistic Liberation" (that name was my idea) has been constructed :la:

I was gonna respond with a Steven Universe joke!
(apparently, that's the thing that's popular right now & for once, it's a trend without noticeable porn!)

I haven't seen that yet. Considering I'm still a slave to public television, I consider myself lucky that we even get Regular Show and Adventure Time here :p

Hey Priteeboy, I was responding to you but realized after I finished the tread was closed... So I'll just leave this here, lol:

Interesting. You make great points, but at the same time I think a big part of that has to do with what parts you live in. At the same time though, I think both the rap and emo stlyes are still going very strong depending on where you go.  -I was a teen through the 00's till 09 and looking at the kids these days, its pretty close to the same (at least where I live anyway Sweating a little... ).

Back in the 90's it was like everyone dressed the same tacky (...kinda cute, but in a dorky way) everywhere, and in all the media, but now the styles are less... Dominate? I guess that's the word I'm looking for. I mean looking at a news caster today, and one from anywhere in the 00's you would NOT be able to tell if it was the 00's, or the 10's by their cloths alone. Try the same thing from the 90's or 80's and you'll know immediately, and that's what I mean... Does that mean our generation, is kind of... Lacking originality? Oops!

God I hate it when that happens. I've done this to other people's profiles before because of it :lol:

Yes I think your'e right. Fashion trends of the post 2000 world aren't quite as heavy-hitting as they were in each decade leading up to it. In one way it's kind of a blessing though, teens of today (even the 00's) have a lot less to be embarrassed about when they see their school photo's compared to our parent's generations. Plus people are a little more free to wear what they like, regardless of whether it's trendy or not.
