And now for something completely different

Hello there! My name’s James Nicholls and this is my first blog post. I recently decided to change career from mediocre web developer to world-renowned illustrator (hopefully; mediocre illustrator would probably be okay as well). I’m going to use this blog as a way to track my progress and gather feedback from others.

I used to sketch all the time when I was young but haven’t had much time for it in the last few years. And the digital painting thing is pretty new to me. Right now I'm just trying to develop my painting skills by reading as many online tutorials as I can get my hands on and painting from photo references. I’ve already learnt a lot from Matthew Archambault and Matt Kohr, who is the first person to explain digital painting in a way I really understand. If you’re interested in learning to draw and paint, I’d really recommend checking out their websites.

In my next post, I’ll post up my first few paintings from the exercises and tutorials on Matt Kohr’s website.
