artao's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I've worked in watercolour, oil, and digital for over two decades now. Although I've been largely focussed on digital for many years to the exclusion of traditional media, I'm feeling the draw of the brushes again. Especially oils.
I'm largely self-taught in all domains. Experimentation, books, videos, artistic interchange.
I revel in discovering beauty and form within chaos, but also in dissembling form and meaning. Still, I do enjoy doing landscapes and the occasional subjective piece as well. Titles I consider to be a sort of poetry of surrealisme. The shapeless structure and the empty form.
I'm also working on some more illustrative art, with the intent of seeking freelance work in science, sci-fi, and horror books and magazines.
I do a bit of writing as well. Sci-fi, horror, and speculative fiction. Poetry too.
I also play several instruments and enjoy making music.
There's a big difference between artistic nude photography and what I'll call "hot photos to get you off".
From what I see on dA, the majority of people posting nude photos here have no clue what I mean by that.
Anyone can snap bad pictures of naked people in gregariously sexual poses. There's no art there. Nor do clever titles make bad photos into art.

thanks. been meanin to make an account here for years, but always felt i needed to 'get more organized' first. ... that ain't gonna happen LOL
NICE fractals!! Some of them remind me of Joan Miró.
I'll be putting a bunch of fractal work up myself. Need to format 'em all first.
I notice in the fractals category there is no 'Fractint' category. I find that interesting. It's been my primary fractal software for almost 2 decades now. heh.
