Hello! My name is Jan,
Im 29 years old, from the Netherlands. I love graphic design, photography and illustrating. I've recently started my own buisness.
I've been lurking conceptart.org for a few months now and decided it's time for an introduction.
Sketching has always been a hobby for me. I've really been a fan of fantasy art of artists like Larry Elmore. In my teens, before the movies of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, i already was a big fan of the genre. From 1995 to 1998 i used to post my drawings at a website called Elfwood. We even had some meetings with a few dutch people from Elfwood and drew in eachothers books at an Irish pub in Utrecht.
When i was about 18 i stopped drawing and got some other interests. Then later on i studied Graphic Design in Rotterdam. There i did some illustrating but mostly my interests were drawn to Photography.
Now after lurking Conceptart.org i decided to start practicing my drawing skills once again. Starting back at the basics of sketching and studying anatomy. I will post my results in the sketchbooks.
Thanks for all the inspiration you have given my and i hope i can give something back to this community!
