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!

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:

Artwork made and copyrighted by me. Please do not re-use or redistribute without my permission DeviantART logo copyright...uhh, deviantART. They can feature/promote it for on-site purposes if they want, with credit due of course ;)
