Quick Examples

FAQ

FAQ

  • How do I say your alias and does it mean anything?
      "I get this one pretty often. Contrary to how it's spelled, it is not an acronym, nor is it the number 40. I was a member of my high-school choir when I came up with the username and in retrospect, I see the misunderstanding but it's actually pronounced forte."

  • How long have you been drawing?
      "I've always been drawing since I was a kid but I've been producing digital art starting as of 2012 when I bought my first drawing tablet."

  • Where did you learn to draw?
      "Even if we counted old online tutorials or getting help from fellow artist, I'm primarily self taught adapting and improving on my own. I did attend the occasional art class in public school but didn't have any formal training until 2022 when I began attending an art school to refine some of my technical skills."

  • Do you have any inspirations or favorite artist?
      "I was a huge fan of the Pok√©mon Trading card game and as a kid; I still am today, and I was always enamored by the many illustrations the game has had over the years. I spent a lot of time observing the work of these artist, and emulated their styles. This also served as a stepping stone towards drawing monsters and creatures"

  • What Tools do you use?
      "I use Paint Tool Sai2 and on a few occasions, Photoshop. I'm knowledgeable of most traditional materials (colored pencil, marker, watercolor, acrylic, and charcoal) but I use digital programs for the mass majority of my work."
