Art & Design Background

Background

I began drawing at an early age. When I was about age 9, I began collecting comic books to learn how to draw muscle structure and anatomy in a stylized fashion. Throughout high school I took as many art classes as i could, which turned out to be quite a few in senior high. Once 0ut of high school , I began my education in traditional animation and a year later digital animation. Throughout this time I was working as a web designer and becoming very proficient in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Image Ready. In my digital animation program I also received 3 semesters of life drawing from which I learned al lot. Now it is today and I am ever progressing in my artistic talents.
