Interests and Personality

BiographyI went sailing for a year. Once. The ocean is the vastest desert i have ever encountered. You can sail for days without seeing another familiar form of iive. I went to college, but couldn't quite separate or otherwise afford Creatively I mostly taught myself, and did have formal qualification, . My preferred medium use to be Illustrator, but lately i'm really getting into Photoshop. You can see my full portfolio here http://www.wix.com/tania_erasmus/fatfreedesigns
InterestsThe smaller things in life - which, from observing the smaller things in life, most people appear to be oblivious to. I notice insects everywhere Needless to say Iove insects, aren't they Fascination , birds, animals, boats, food, books, other people's art and the ever evolving, unique styles. Architecture old and new. The ocean & its elements. My friends, some strangers, human behavior, sometimes the past, mostly the present and seldom the future. If i had a family i would be interested in them the most, but i don't, so i'm not.
MusicA melting pot of genres quench my every thirst.
FilmsAmelie - my favorite movie ever!
BooksLove - Story by Lowell A.Siff. Illustrated and designed by Vanni. First printed in 1964. This was the most beautiful 5 minutes i spent reading any book. The other one book i devour every week, pales in comparison.
Heroesmy mum! do you know how much guts it takes to blow your own brains out?!

Thank you very much! You can kiss haha! Your work is very great!


Thank you so much, though I don't consider myself to be that good, but I'm working on it. I wouldn't consider you to be "average" either, I think your work is fantastic.


No problem, I don't mind at all. I used Photoshop CS3 for it. If you mean the glowy lighting effects, I made them through different blending effects on layers, changes in levels and exposure, and by having a top layer over everything that I do some very light brushwork to add atmosphere.


Thank you very much for the comment. It's hard for me to explain how I draw, I have a very random approach. For "Lost in Wonderland," I started with a sketch, worked mainly on Alice, did the background, and then added final touches in atmosphere and lighting. I'm really unorganized though and have a short attention span so I'll make changes to Alice while working on the background for example. Thanks for asking and nice meeting you.
