Have you ever studied Art or are you self taught?
I am self taught. With tutorials and learning by doing.What appealed to you the most about being an artist?
To create worlds/scenes I have in my mind, so I can show them to others.What is the inspiration for your works?
A lot of things. But usually just sketching around till I find something I really like.What influenced you to draw fantasy/sci-fi (?) works?
Movies. Especially "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings".I noticed in your gallery you focus a lot on creating landscapes. What do you enjoy about painting landscapes the most?
I really like to create paintings which gives a sense of scale. I like the feeling of be a little viewer who looks at a giant environment (e.g. mountains)What would you consider the fundamentals of creating your landscapes?
Big shapes and atmosphere perspective.What is the process you go through when starting a piece of work till it's final state?
I start with big shapes and try not to get to early into the details.
When I like the overall feeling of my painting, I work on that part I don't like the most.
I do this from big parts till the little details in the end.What artists on dA inspire you the most and why? tyleredlinart.deviantart.com/noahbradley.deviantart.com/flaviobolla.deviantart.com/
and a lot more.
I really enjoy their work (ideas and techniques), because it's what I try to achieve with my paintings.Is there any advice you could give to learning artists?
Just paint and have fun! Every painting/sketch/study makes you better!
Sometimes it's hard, but don't give up!
ctrlpaint.com is your best friend, if you struggling with fundamentals/techniques or if you are a beginner.
I learned a lot of this site (there are even some new things for me from time to time) and Matt Kohr is doing a awesome job with this site and with his tutorials.
