Newest Deviations

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:

P.S - everything before the deviation "Burgundy Breeze" was drawn before I got my drawing tablet - proof that you can still do some awesome shit by mouse if you try hard enough ;)

Falling from the sky...literally! link :jawdrop:

The fact I had to work last night actually turned out for the best, and lucky they didn't give me a 10pm finish like they often do otherwise I would have missed the show on the way home if work had ended even as little as 10 minutes earlier or later. Good timing to say the least!

Since I don't drive yet I was a passenger in the car - lucky again because that meant I was free to watch this fireball in the sky as it slowly burned up in the atmosphere rather than keeping my eyes on the road and potentially missing it. It was a cold night (cold by Australian standards anyway) and so I assumed this speck of light with what looked like a beam of light near it was simply a plane passing through some icy clouds at first, but if that were the case, the tail of light should have been ahead of the direction the object was travelling, not trailing behind it. I then saw some pieces break off behind it and flare up and then I knew for sure that it was coming from space, burning up in the skies over the south-eastern end of my own continent.

I thought it was a meteor until I came across this news article today which verified that what I (and many other Australians) saw last night was in fact a piece of rocket that was falling back to Earth after having been used to launch a Russian weather satellite earlier this month. It has certainly been the most interesting thing I've seen happen for a while and just days before my birthday :D

Other than that, I've given myself something to look forward to as well, and as you pass your mid 20's you start realizing that the only way you'll ever have anything to look forward to past a certain age are the things you plan out for yourself. I've decided to re-decorate my room. I didn't realize how plain it looked until I started photoshopping ideas onto pictures of my real room after being suggested to do something with it by my own mother (thanks mum!) After all I'm happy with what I did to the gardens outside, now to give improving inside a try :worker: Who knows, if it looks as good as my plan, I could be a candidate for interior design. I'm pretty sure there aren't any other gay interior designers yet :plotting:

Also I enjoyed my day at Supanova last month too, even though there really wasn't anything I wanted to buy at the convention this time around, except a cool refreshing slurpee (damn my outfit made me hot, even in winter :phew:) But it was really cool, lots of people wanted to take pictures of me, at one point I was held up for five minutes as they took turns snapping me and a few others up. I felt like a supermodel...or a peacock at the zoo :flirty: Perhaps when I have some free time in the coming week or two I can upload some of my own pictures if any are good enough.

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

Thanks! There's few people in the gaming forum one can even have a civil conversation with, which is such as shame. Many gamers seem to be angry nerds with nothing good to say about anything other than a handful of games on their choice console :no: But I try not to be like that ;p
