View Full Version : Hi I'm new here
July 13th, 2009, 01:37 PM
Hello Everyone! I'm new here, just joined. Still new to all these forums. As I hardly spend enough time on the computer. Sometimes it can be very confusing. But I know I need to get my artwork out there. Anyway, I'm a self taught artist. I have been painting for a very long time. As I got older, I started to paint murals and do custom faux finishes in peoples home. Then I was approached several months ago to illustrate a book. I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would illustrate a book. The book is called, "The Present Monster" and it will be out this coming Christmas. I can't wait. I will be illustrating 5 other books as well from the same Author. I do have several projects lined up. I love Fairys, and dark art. And I'm a huge fan of Tim Burton. I would love to be on his team of artists.

I don't spend a ton of time on here either, but it is by far one of my most favorite art forums.
I also paint, am a fan of the dark stuff, and Tim! I've had the opportunity to paint a few murals (I'm not sure I was using the right materials now that I think about it) but I really liked doing it. I paint large most of the time, so it was fun for someone to point at a wall and go "make something". :D

Welcome to Concept Art
A good way to start would be to start your own sketchbook at the sketchbook section in my opinion.
Anyways, if you have questions, feel free to personal message any time.
