About my artwork
Figurative Realism Art is the hardest to create, the most beautiful to watch, and the best bang for your buck !
I'm trying my best.
I've just been browsing your portfolio here, and find your drawings to be exquisite; it's also great to see you've tackled such a broad range of media also - I imagine that you may have dabbled with ZBrush also, being a Maya user?
all the best and thanks for sharing :)
