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:

Well it's certainly been a pretty good birthday this year. Lots of stuff has been happening around the place, and out in space (That New Horizons space probe is finally due to fly past Pluto today, after a 9-year long journey, pretty exciting news to wake up to on my special day :D) But back on earth I've finally caved in and decided to splurge my birthday money on my newest expensive addiction...
My Amiibo Collection So Far by priteeboy

Anyway, as some of my close followers may know, I'm a real Nintendo nut, especially regarding Super Smash Bros, and I've recently decided to make it my goal to get the whole set of Nintendo's official Super Smash Bros amiibo series. It's cost me an arm and a leg over the past few days, but I've had surprisingly good luck when it came to finding (most) of the characters that they have put out so far. Finally a day where things go my way :bow: Now that my birthday bonus is spent, looks like I'll have to be getting that other jacket at a later date :XD:

Later in the day my family and I went to see Jurassic World. It was really cool, though I was just glad to do anything fun on my day off. Movies are often a good choice everyone could agree with. I still remember when I went to see Evolution for my 14th =p Of course, I was just as interesting in seeing Inside Out since I'm a sucker for Pixar's stuff, but with not other "big kids" in the family - Jurassic World seemed to be the more agreeable option =p

Anyway, I ran out of time to get my annual birthday submission here on time. Though it's not the first time I've been late. But I'm close to getting it done. No point rushing what's shaping up to be one of my personal favourite landscapes so far in the name of an unofficial deadline. So keep an eye out for that in the coming day or so :eager:

Matthew Attard
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art

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!

Stage Slayer Jacket Design by priteeboy
Stage Slayer Jacket Design
Another one in the series which I'll probably put on hiatus for a while after I finish the next (not before getting some of my more usual artworks in between though, so don't worry guys ;)) Sticking with one of my favourite colour schemes again for a dynamic look, this one was made to look even more glamourous (and dangerous) than the previous attempts, but that extra flashiness is why it's a new fave of mine =p

I'm not sure if I'll get this one made either (depends on whether I like the other one more, or whichever ends up being the most feasible). But it was created with my boots in mind as a perfect match. I also made it a short jacket since they look damn hot on guys but you never see any for guys (seems only fictional characters ever wear them :paranoid:)

It has. Especially since by the time you reach this age, people tend to stop caring about your birthday like they used to. So if I can't make it special for myself, then who will :nuu: But yes, I got some pretty good memorabilia for it =p

Well you are 27 and that's a pretty significant number for it's mathematical properties. On your birthday Humanity has completed it's mapping of The Solar System and they have discovered the Pentiquarks. You had an interesting day.
