A Fascination With Comic Book Art And Drawing From My Imagination
I don't know or really remember how I got started drawing fantasy type stuff such as demons and horror genre art, but I just did along the way, maybe it was all the films I watched as a child, or the obssessive interest in games workshop miniature painting, whatever the case, I'm glad that I have something to take up my time in all the hours in the day.
I remember seeing as a child paintings in books and magazines of some of the scenes from the lord of the rings book, and to me I was secretly wishing I'd painted them pictures and would set out on a mission to learn how to paint like these professional artists did.
I sadly did not have the time back then, as a learning disability prevented me from understanding text properly, I don't think I was dislexic in the sense of every single letter or word was backwards and made no sense, because I could read and understand, but when it came to reading instructions or something that really needed to be understood, I'd have serious difficulties.
So from that moment on I decided to just draw and practice and then write lists of anything and sentences combining them with my drawings and so on, until after a few years I'd completely passed this partial dislexic phase and I was able to understand things written in books far better than I used to.
Nearly 2 years passed and I bought a computer for the internet potential of exposing my work and gaining an insight into the mystery of the web, and I soon found this was to be another obstacle to overcome as it frustrated me even further as there was this huge network of links to anything you could search for, but I stuck with it just like you have to in this life, adapt to changes,learn new stuff.
I am inspired by other fantasy artist, in particular those that paint and draw in different styles such as Clive Barker whose art is truly inspiring. I wrote an interesting overview of his art with some collected videos showing you his art here - Clive Barker Art

Learning How To Draw Through Video
Finding YouTube and the courage to post my own art and drawing videos back in 2009 was a magical event that I didn't think I'd be able to do, but I bought a Flip Camera at the time and just went with it experimenting with Windows Movie Maker at the time I remember starting to draw and forgetting to talk and describe how to draw which I look back sometimes and laugh.
Now I have 3 YouTube channels which I have created to try and help other artists with drawing fantasy art and tattoo artwork through ideas and just things to show anyone how to draw, being an inspiration to others was the main intention of creating these Video channels and plus now I think it's fun to draw on camera.
