I am Elizabeth Daly, a digital & traditional artist living in the Metro Detroit area of Michigan. I am 31 years old and reciently went back to college to obtain my degree in graphic design with a focus in Animation.
I've been fidding with digital art for aproximately 7 years and until August 2008 had no art training. That is when I returned to college and took Drawing 1. I am currently taking Life Drawing (Human Figure Drawing) and enjoying it emensly.
I feel that my interet in digital art for so long before learning anything about traditional has helped me greatly. I had no idea I could draw by hand in a traditional manner at all. I'm still learning and refining my skills but having fun doing it.
Art, my friends, is hard work. Anyone who says otherwise needs a good swift kick in the rear. You really have to learn how to see to create art and are constantly refining & using judgement skills to make quick decisions which will in turn shape your art.
For years I never called what I did 'art'. Now, I sure do. I am an artist.
