"How has deviantART helped you grow as an individual and/or as an artist?"


I've been a proud member of deviantart community for 9 years now. I started my account as a means to submit my artwork to a website as a means of showing my friends on the internet. Now I use it as an online portfolio to show my clients my artwork and let them know what my skills are capable of. Because we are only allowed so many images to share, I will share the art pieces in my gallery that were major turning points for me in my skills as an artist.

Summer Dream by aziroth
This wasn't my first submission to deviantart, however, it's so far down in my gallery that you have to visit a few pages to get there. This piece was created when I was in high school, for a graphic design class I was in. The subject was to make a desktop for the teacher over summer break and receive extra credit. I of course, being a prodigy in high school and better than my teacher at this point, didn't need the extra credit and sought the opportunity to be creative. I was still early in my creative skills, so most of the picture was all brushwork, and of course, brushes used from other artists on the deviantart community!

Vision 3.0 by aziroth

This piece was the first actual piece I deem to be an "elite" piece of work, and not because of thw way it looks, but because it took me 2 weeks of 5 hour school time to make it. It was a side project while I was going to college for my Graphic Design AA degree. I would work on projects for my school portfolio, but when I was in a graphic mind block with my school work, I would turn to this piece and add just a little here and there. This piece helped keep my sanity in school and it turned out that my Graphics Professor liked it so much, he requested a print and he hung it up in his office. This was a turning point piece in my artwork that made me realize that I could be one of those artists that makes amazing 3D abstract art.

 
Derelict by aziroth


Now, my art style is definitely with the 3D Abstract Art community, however, I LOVE space illustrations and there are a few people whose works inspire me to better my skills at creating space scenes, however, this picture was not one of those inspirations from my space artist friends on deviantart, but rather from the game Mass Effect 2. In the game, you visit a derelict Reaper, a sentient AI roaming the galaxy on the outer rim preparing themselves for total annihilation of any race who advances too far with their technology. This piece of art was inspired by the playable mission of where you get to visit the insides of a reaper. Although my skills with space scenes wasn't at it's best in my opinion, I received a Daily Deviation for this piece and I just about melted inside with astonishment that I had received a DD for a piece I wasn't too happy about. And of course, this piece inspired me to keep going with the space illustrations.

Isica by aziroth

This is my favorite space illustration piece I have ever created. If I am stuck with a mental block of what else to add to new space scenes, I always reopen this file and visit the layers to see what I did with this piece that made it turn out so great in my opinion. I wanted to create a universe for a Role Play story I was writing, and this picture helped others visualize the solar system for which they would be role playing in.
Despite all the other space illustrations I have made, this piece continues to be my favorite.

Extacy by aziroth


This was the beginning of a new era of skilled work for me. I was changing my style of work from less monochromatic pieces to more vibrant and colorful pieces and although if you were to look in my gallery and think, "you have other vibrant pieces of work before creating this piece," I would have to reply with, "this is a new style of art that I have discovered." And it's true. I had never thought to use smoke brushes as a source for "energy" type works in any of my pieces. This piece was a turning point in my skills as a digital artist and gave me the confidence to continue with the 3D abstract community.

Venomous Surge by aziroth

Finally, almost the last piece. This is my latest 3D abstract piece, and pleasing the colors are to the eye, the contrast of color is what makes this piece so inspiring for myself. Even if my skill with Abstract Art diminishes in the future and I lose that skill with composition, I don't think I will ever lose the ability to match colors in vibrant tones such as what's in this picture. My ability to mix colors in my artwork is what gives me the drive to continue with more styles and create new pieces of artwork that defy my skill level with creating them.

Unstable Energy by aziroth

And last but not the least, my Latest piece submitted. Over the course of this journal, I have taken you through a very quick time line of my artwork and I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have being able to share it with you. I pointed out that my last piece above was my latest 3D abstract, and it was, however, this piece is my latest submission, and it has no renders in it period. This is the start of a new era for me in my artwork and I am pleased to say that I have not yet mastered anything with my artwork and continue to grow through the inspiration of others in this Astounding art community!

My name is Ryan and I was born 8/10/87. I have an Associates degree in Graphics Design. But, a little bit about myself first. I got into making art when I was about 13. I first started dabbling in Adobe PS when the only version they had was 5.0 at the time, and since then I have upgraded to the latest cs5. I used Pixel2life.com as a means of teaching myself the different filter tricks of photoshop and soon fell in love with the program.

Since then I have a completed over 10,000 tutorials in photoshop, as well as taking a few college classes here and there, and am now starting to dabble in Web Design.

I can do professional work when I find it, but mostly create and utilize my talents as a hobby, so most of what you see in my gallery is hobby work, with little professional pieces. I am just like any other artist when it comes to expressing their emotion into a form of visual art. The main media that helps me accomplish this is listening to my favorite genre's of music. I am highly inspired with any form of electronica, including Trance, Techno, Dubstep, and Drum 'n Bass. I listen to Ambient music when creating my Space illustrations.

That's about all I can write for now. If you have any questions regarding anything about me or my art, send me a note. =D

I've done over 10,000 tutorials in the first 2 years of learning photoshop on a website called, Pixel2life.com. I taught myself how to use photoshop and played around in it for as much time as a kid would sit there and play video games (roughly 7-8 hours a day). My styles have changed so often over the years, but I always try to incorporate something new into my styles and for every new piece of art I make. I would think it is possible to achieve a level of greatness with photoshop skills in a short amount of time, but it really boils down to finding fans that like your work and ones who support you, and for the ones that don't, they are the people who are meant to build your confidence with criticism so that you learn and build yourself up to where I am. With fans, comes more support, and "getting yourself out there" kind of thing. If you are serious and want to become a great artist, I would post your work on a lot of different artist-type websites that allow you to dump your images on their webiste to receive feedback.

I've been using photoshop since I was 15 years old, and now I am gonna be turning 27 this year. I have a degree in Graphics Design, and although that sounds amazing, I really don't do much graphics design work, but am still a commission-type artist. I love to make things look real and make them flow as if they were actually 'real' just like any other photomanipulation artist would want, or even an illustrator.
