Well after too long I decided it was about time I added some info to my page. My name is Mike I come from the UK and have been interested in all forms of art for as long as I can remember. Before the advent of computers I painted and drew in the so called classic way. My favourte artists are J W Waterhouse and the Pre-raphaelites......ohh of only I was as good as them !!!!!.
I still draw but I use a Rotring pen with the smallest nib I can find and build the pictures up from dots. Yes its takes forever, my last work took me a month, 10 hours a day to complete hence why I do it rarely now.
I love Painter and Photoshop but have to admit that I dont paint in Photoshop simply because I love the brushes in Painter. Tools of the trade are an old Intuos 3 and an even older digital camera for reference work.
Any friends requests are more than welcome as it would be good to discuss techniques and ideas with other artists.
