TheHerdman's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Hello, I am an aspiring artist and student of architecture.

For a few years I have limited myself to focusing on my study of architecture, pouring time into learning about construction and built aesthetic, but recently I have made time to return to doing art for the sake of expression and storytelling. Art is a way for me to delve deeper into the stories we all shape in our head and to show appreciation for the stories we read, see, and hear all around us.

I am just beginning to learn digital painting and always working on my sketching and drawing, so let me know what you think of my work!

Hello Everyone! I am working towards buying a core membership. If you like my art and would like to donate it would be greatly appreciated.

I will make an effort to give llamas, watches, favorites, and thanks to all who donate.

You must be logged in to donate.
No one has donated yet. Be the first!


Woah, three months radio silence, didn't realize it has been so long since I posted a journal. You may be wondering "What has that random deviant I added with the toad picture been up to ?"

Summer ended up being filled with a great architecture internship that took a lot of my time, and now I am on to Graduate School. The summer was fun because I was able to more sketching on my breaks and in my free time than in many many years. Unfortunately, all the sketching and working on some fundamentals meant that I didnt have a lot of polished art I was comfortable sharing.

Now that I am studying away at school once again, I should be able to find more odd hours for art. The consistency of it will most likely be in bursts or projects developed over a decent time span. I hope to leverage my schooling and get as much art out of it as possible, but its hard to tell where things will head.

Thanks for the read guys, there should be a work in progress up later this evening for a little portrait study that I am excited about.
One day, one day I shall finally paint myself a new avatar for here lol.
Glad to have been able to get out my last piece, was a lot of fun to see all my sketch practice on lunch breaks and in the evening to pay off lol. Back to more exercises for a while and new art will  pop-up when I get a solid free weekend.
As a new semester starts and things begin to wind up again, art production slows a bit. I am trying to balance my studies in architecture, art, and my health and it can be quite a challenge. I am very anxious to begin working on digital art. At the same time, I want to get back to the basic fundamentals of the traditional arts I have been briefly trained in before jumping in. I have always been the type to rush into things and miss the basics, so I really am trying to stay focused. I have tested digital painting one of my hand-drawings today and will be posting it shortly, just to get a feeling for what I may need to work on. Please let me know what you think of it and I appreciate the communities constant support and feedback. Take it easy all.
