Alyssa O'Leary (AMO) Profile
About / Bio
Hi there! My name is Alyssa. Most of my art is done to illustrate a series of sci-fi stories that I'm working on.
My digital paintings are created using Autodesk Sketchbook on a Samsung Galaxy Note tablet. Everything is drawn out bit by bit with the S Pen jus like I would use a normal pen, marker or pencil-- nothing here is generated by the program itself. Until recently I'd only really done pencil sketches, so this is a big change for me but I enjoy it. Being able to complete a piece of art wherever I am is pretty awesome. I do have a lot to improve on, and I know I need to get bolder with my fine detail and take my time with my backgrounds. So far I've just done quick pieces, so I'm really trying to slow down and make things more intricate. I'm still very much a student of art and learning is an ongoing process.
I joined to see who else I could connect with on a creative level. I'd really like to get to know other artistic people I can learn with while I expand my skills. In addition to comments I am looking for real critiques rather than just loads of praise on every picture. I want my artwork to improve and I want to have input from other artists that might actually help me in the future.
My writing is a dark sci-fi fantasy mix. Come take a look at www.ScrimshankerGods.com.
