Well hello there, CA C:
I'm Nina, a young artist from Finland, eager to draw, paint, meet new people, get criticism and just talk with people in here :3 I've never had much artists as friends so I feel really good talking about art, different tecniques and anything in general with people. It's just... relaxing <:
I don't know if I really need to write some general info about myself here buuuut let's just do so that if anyone wants to know, it's here :3
I've drawn for years but have only gotten all my skills last year. I had pretty much no sense of anatomy at the beginning of the year, I didn't really know how to shade or anything before my fiancee taught me his style that I later combined with the one I had before aaand.. I think it's still developing so I can't say it's "my style" at all, at least not before I stop changing it with every picture I paint.
I've wanted to be a concept artist for about three years now and since I finally can say I have some skills, I've decided to nail the pen to my hand and paint as well as I can. Hehe, too bad that I have a bad adhd, would be so much easier to just concentrate than loose interest after the first five minutes. Sometimes I need at least a week to finish a simple picture, sometimes(when I can concentrate) it only takes a day. Some of my best pictures took only hours. And, of course, I have pictures that I've been working on since last summer and which aren't even halfway done. Yesh.
I'm not really interested in character designing, more like Species designing. I'm an anatomy- and love making my creatures as biologically possible as I can and I'm not satisfied if I only have the outside of a creature done. I must complete the muscle-structure, bones and inner organs as well.
Always interested in dragons, I have several "species" that started out as dragons but were later finished as mammals that don't have much dragonic features, maybe wings or horns and some of them aren't considered as dragons at all, at least not by me. The best example would be my Shiyus, biedal, anatomically very human-like creatures that people just love calling furries and anthros... Doesn't make me feel good at all.
Enough of nonsense. I hope you guys here don't mind me bothering you with my sketches, wips and finished pictures too much and I wish you all a good day/night :3
