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

My apologies in advance for those not in the Senior forums who get messaged about this and don't know what the hell it is :oops:

Anyway, I somehow ended up playing an ongoing forum game I just found out about yesterday, so let me have at it. For the following week from the date this was posted, I'll answer any question as best I can (without breaking the rules :eyes:)

And make e'm about me dammit! :shakefist:

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
