Hi, I'm Henri from Finland. I just want to join the grand game of the big art world, to pursue the journey from a humble student level to even humbler master of the craft. Getting employed in the field is optional. Money, acceptance and fame can wait (they're pretty unlikely in this competitive field anyway). To draw and paint is like breathing. The point is not about who wins the game but about playing like masters. This is all about the joy of art making and self-development, overcoming weaknesses and practice, practice and practice. Having a background in comics and animation, I have taken more interest in the representational art aka illustration, the classical path from master copies to anatomy to drawing and painting from life.
