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, 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 :)

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

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 ;))

Anti Hero Leather Jacket Design by priteeboy
Anti Hero Leather Jacket Design
After getting the much earlier jacket design finally made I felt tempted to at least try one more (though I have to make sure I don't develop an expensive habit out of this) plus I found this killer pair of red/black studded boots and I kinda want a similar styled jacket to match, one whose design would be a tad more practical than the other and hopefully more street-worthy too 8-)

Originally this one was going to have grey parts in it too surrounding the red details, which did look more interesting but I felt red and black alone had a more nicer and broader appeal. Still unsure as to whether or not I'll get this one made but I figured I spent this long designing it anyway and would be good to have something like it on here anyway whether I use it or not. Don't worry though - got something landscape-ey coming up soon ;)

Edit: Grey version is now in Anti Hero Leather Jacket - Grey

Yes...Not the kind of job I (or anyone) would want, but at least I can earn my own money and buy stuff as I need it now (like much-needed software upgrades :XD:)

Hi.  Been wanting to ask you a quick question.  Since you do such great scenes using Vue and Photoshop (the same programs I work with) I wanted to ask if you knew of any good resources online where I could go to learn more about Vue.  I'm self taught on the program and have learned a great deal over the past year, but I also know that I could be doing soooo much more.  If you know of any good online sources of information that's not too basic but not for an expert either could you pass it along??  Thanks in advance!
