A.P.Lazarus. Just call me Rita, or Lazarus or my username.
All you'll ever need to know about me....
Briefly studied Visual Communication with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I've never really drawn anything before college. I started pencil shading, painting and other traditional art only after I joined college.
I'm also pursuing a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science because I love computational art + creative coding and wish to learn it.
(Which is also the main reason why I find myself quite occupied and unable to devote any time to creating more artwork :-P)
I've dabbled with Photoshop when I was much younger though, way back in high school. (Ah, those days of artistic discovery)
Digital art is like more of a hobby to me. :-P
Photoshop versions used: PS7, CS2 and now CS6
Pencil shading and dry pastels on paper are my most preferred media when it comes to traditional art. I'm always open to learning new art styles and other techniques...
Photography is something that I've only recently discovered and it seems to have really caught my fancy!
Music is my BIGGEST inspiration. It's also something I'm quite passionate about. You'll find me air-drumming to my favourite songs all the time.
Favourite bands: Karnivool <3 , Muse, TesseracT, Rishloo, Katatonia, Cult Of Luna, Tool, God Is An Astronaut, Opeth, Skyharbor, Animals As Leaders, Sigur Ros, Ludovico Einaudi, Uneven Structure, Ne Obliviscaris, Monuments, Nine Inch Nails, Kylesa, Isis, Rosetta, How To Destroy Angels, Ulver, SubRosa and many more.
Science Fiction and Futurism comes in a close second. I'm also inspired by the mysteries of this journey called life.
Gaming takes my mind off the trivial things of this world.
Favorite games of all time: Skyrim (4ever!), Diablo II, UT2004, Age of Empires, Heroes of Dragon Age, Contra
Please note: All my non-digital artworks are photos, taken with a point & shoot camera as I don't have a scanner. Sometimes the picture quality is compromised due to the lighting and angle of the photo, which may result in colours appearing slightly different from the original.
I know these languages: Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Marathi and
^Feel free to speak to me in any language.
(though the last one doesn't really qualify as one xD)
