Hello! My name is Brandy, although online I generally go by Ravyn or RavynGyrl.
Art in some form has always seemed to come naturally to me. In my grade school years, I used to sketch famous cartoon characters. In high school I wrote a lot of poetry as well as took a few drama courses. After I graduated, I returned to sketching. It wasn't until late 1999 that I became interested in digital art. I started off creating basic web pages for myself, which evolved into learning photo-manipulation, after I bought Paint Shop Pro 6 in 2000 (I now use version X4). I've made quite a few signature tags in the years before I had Poser. Seeing some sig tags using 3D characters started my journey to 3D art. Hubby and I bought Poser 6 in late 2005 (I now use version PP2012). Once I learned the UI, I was hooked...and I still am. I love creating 2D art using a 3D interface. My favorite genres are fantasy, goth, and steam-punk...and I often like to mix them. Fantasy has always been my all-time love, though, and tends to show up more in my art.
