Self taught education:

Since I remember I've been doodling here and there but really disliked traditional painting due to the lack of my understanding. Sketching and pencil drawings were the things I loved and spent my time doing as a kid. 2009 was when I really made up my mind to start digital painting seriously and loved it! I spent about 1 year just doing digital painting studies by myself and trying to break into the industry, after that, on the 2nd year I started freelancing full time and I'm very happy where I stand no, all the hard work, sweat and blood really paid off and still this very day I don't stop trying to improve as I go up the ladder in the industry.

The higher I climb, the harder I work.

Hey silva, long time fan. Is 2D dying now? It seems 3D is finally taking the lead? What do you think?

I mean in regards to freelancing
