I am currently planning to expand my art to other techniques, to a larger format of the drawings, but still to be portraits. And I do not have a much bigger project I dream of. Maybe to go to America or some other destination and to continue my artistic life there.

I think there was no milestone in which I became an artist, in fact, I always drew since I was a child, it was always what I loved to do, and for a long time I kept looking something to continue being that I already drew and had ability with that. I think I can say that I became more like an artist in 2011 when I chose to post my drawings on the social medias.

The virtual world is a great tool to promote works and this helped me a lot to grow as an artist and then, solve once and for all to become who I always was.

I like to start out with a sketch, then refine that so I have the anatomy figured out and the values sorted, then I like to color the darks after so I can determine the range of values I can got with the colors, then paint the shapes that make up the piece, I try to be clever with brush strokes when I can, the simpler the better is what I have learned, then its refinement of edges and shapes from there on, I like to add the textures only when I feel it is needed
