I specialize in charcoal portraits of people, animals, buildings, and landscapes. My background has had me involved with creating artwork and technical editing for computer games and computer animation, and I've been on a team that has released 3 professional titles for the PC while working at Dynamix (a division of Sierra). I've found creating traditional art to be more fulfilling and less susceptible to the political backstabbing often found in a professional environment.
I have recently become interested in creating visual special effects for use with the Kinect and dance productions. This means I have taken up the task of learning how to program, which isn't much fun. But sometimes you have to drudge through the mud to get to the mountain top.
I'll draw it for $500
