|Newest summon I painted.|
Done for my fan project Final Fantasy VII Summons: Shiva.
I always wanted to paint all summons as cool as I remember them when I was a kid.
Also I'm looking for more job opportunities, please share if you can <3
Next summon, Ifrit!
"Had already found the treasured beast down, whoever killed it didn't know what was still remaining inside... The beast itself isn't worth anything and is pretty common. It is what it carries inside that matters."

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.
