I was a member of the Deviantart for some time, but have decided to change my username (not being a Core member and all) by creating another account (so please...don't accuse me of plagiarizing my own work rofl...)
First of all: all of the deviations I have put so far are NOT in any way paintings, drawings, etc. by me - mostly because I do not have talent (or at least skill) to make any worthy paintings or drawings (plus - lacking a scanner makes it that more difficult...).
HOWEVER - what I'm very fond of (at least for now) is taking real-life photos of and tweaking and editing them to make an interesting and (to me at least) very "artistic" (lol) take on the said photos.
One extremely important thing about me is that I'm extremely fond of Tolkien and everything he wrote...
Which leads to my next point - I want to represent as much as I can of Tolkien's world as possible - even if not very proficient at other forms of art - it is very important to me to represent that world as best as I can.
That will be all...may other fellow artists' work on this site be as good and prolific as possible!
