E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Location: Germany, Nuremberg Specialty: Digital ART (generally)
Born 1982 in former east germany in a small town called bitterfeld i found out rather late that i have a talent for digital art. At the age of 18 i started to work my mind through photoshop. Probably the most powerful digital graphics tool available. It took me about 1 year, and a moving to nuremberg, to get fond of the basics and from that point on i tried to learn own techniques. Now, 4 years later, i developed serious techniques and i still try to refine them.
My skills are rather varied. Beside usual 2d imagery i'm able to work with 3d programs.
My artistic excellence is to create imaginary landscapes. Those are created with a mix of different programs. The terrain part is always rendered by 'terragen'. Then rendered image then gets into photoshop to add a lot of special effects... which takes the most time when creating landscapes the way like i do.
Photography is a hobby of mine.
