    Hi Daniel--just saw your work--amazing and well worth studying. Are you strictly digital because your work looks like you have studied at an atelier. The way you handle palettes are inspiring. One thing I saw was that process demo that you did and the spartan sketch. I have seen so many people over detail a sketch then literally mop themselves in a corner when it comes to the paint application. Glad to have found your work.--jay

    Hello, Jay!

    I am really glad you like my work! I come from traditional media yes, but I haven't been in any atelier or art school. I always taught myself and I was very inspired by other artists. From anime and manga to the great masters, and of course from reality. I always liked to draw, so when I was a young boy my father told me that the great masters, like Da Vinci and Michelangelo, used to train a lot from just looking at the things around us. The shapes, the light, the colors. So I have been drawing for most of my life. I am 25. There is still (always) much to learn. And I have recently graduated in Architecture, so i think the course also helped with a bit of theory on composition.
    But I must say that I really developed my techiniques in color when I got to digital. Before that I just used pencil and paper most of the time. Just tried a few times with oils and acrilycs. But the main thing was digital for a long time.I am into digital for 7 years now.
    Just a few months ago I got back to watercolors, which is the traditional media I prefer (for now haha).

    About the sketch... I think it maybe related to the person's personality and mood. I am not very patience, and I am very explosive sometimes... So I think this reflects on the way I draw and paint, with very loose sketches and more impressionistic painitng. I guess, haha. I don't have patience to do very detailed scenarios for example, with complex perspective.
    But I know that ,in order to learn - since I never was in an art school where your tutor and friends will keep pushing you to learn more stuff - I have to try and break these barriers I have sometimes, to get out of the confort zone, or I won't improve. One example of this was the series Love scene study I made a while ago: https://forums.artrage.com/showthrea...ve+scene+study
    It took me some weeks to finish it (of course I did not paint every day).

    And last year I tried to achieve kind of the same results I get in a digital portrait, but with acrylic paiting. And I did Matilda:

    So that is it. I try not to stop, and I know that I still have a long way ahead. And I will try to enjoy the ride of course, haha.

    Thanks a lot, Jay! Sorry for the long reply.

    Oh, and it is also good to mention books: Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter by James Gurney, Light for Visual Artists by Richard Yot and How to Draw by Scott Robertson. This last one is more complex and technical, but it is very good to understand perspective better. But all of them are very visual books. You can find them on amazon. There is a bunch more, but these are the main art books I've read. In amazon you can go clicking the related books at the bottom and search for reviews on them.
    Also good to mention youtubers:

    Mateusz Ubanowicz: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8B...NvnikjAI6GdBPg

    And so much more
