I been drawing since I was very young. I have expirence in the field of comic book art, and been doing freelance work for people on their projects. Protrait drawings, logos, posters, original concept & character design for stories are few of my skills. I'm a very open minded artist, and I'm always open to learn new ways of working and team up with others. One of the expinrece with comic art was Americanime Produtions. My art is a good mix of traditional art and digital. my work would probably start as traditional, and would be finished on digital. For digital touches I use Photoshop, and a Cintiq 21UX wacom drawing tablet. It helps me keep up with dead lines. My deviant art gallery can be reached at... http://browse.deviantart.com/?q=nightworc&order=9&offset=24 (under the search of nightworc's gallery). Hope to hear from you, thank you.
