Hello there, thanks for passing by ^^.
I'm Linda, though I mostly use Lorizza on the net, so when you ever meet a Lorizza on the net, there's a big chance it's me (-okay.. I mostly use it in games.. hehe)
I've been drawing for quite a while now, one of my oldest drawings I remember drawing is from around 2000 (i think). I was designing my own princess-characters, including bacon-mouths and piggy-noses xD.
When I was around 11 years old I really loved horses, so I used to draw them a lot (mainly in class haha). When I was aroud 14 years I discovered manga. I really loved the pretty eyes, so I got addicted to drawing all kinds of manga eyes (also mainly in class xD)
At 16 I joined an art academy, where I learned to draw after life (so my drawings got a lot better technically xD). Because I still was way too attached to manga I ended up quiting (you can't make it in art with just manga I suppose )
I never quit drawing manga, though my style slowly matured into a more realistic version. Now I am still continuing the same line, adding more and more realistic things into my art.
Next to drawing I also enjoy making dolls (and recently, plushies). They usually take a lot of time though, because I only work at them in the weekends, and sometimes I don't touch them for months (I'm lazy haha)
My Summary of art for 2013:
I use Photoshop, and SAI for digital art and coloring, and pencil, paper, ballpoint pen and a lot of other stuff for traditional art.
