Hi mr. Fairhurst,

I've just discovered all of your artwork and it's really amazing! It's exactly the kind of style and stuff that I want to learn too, but I think is perhaps too difficult. It seems so awesome and clever too...
However - I was wondering if you've got some time to answer the following questions maybe Sweating a little... :
Is there a name linked to the artwork you create, so I'll be able to look for tutorials and things like that?
I guess you use Photoshop (or something), are there any specific brushes you would recommend me to use?
Is there something really important to keep in mind while creating awesome art like you create?

It would be really amazing if you're able to answer the questions mentioned. However, keep drawing like you do, because you inspire people like me and it's just really incredible!

Greetings from Holland,
Liam van Dijk (14 years old ;) (Wink) )

Hi Liam

First off let me say thanks for the kind words. What I do is called digital painting. There are different genres of digital painting though, just like traditional...like Concept art, Matte Painting, fantasy art, poster art etc. I myself just say digital painting as I can never decide. You can find lots of tutorials on youtube and on here at deviantart and more recently on a place called Gumroad, but you have to pay a small price for those tutorials. Try following artists that you liek and especially those that give out advice and tutorials.

I use photoshop to paint with and a Wacom tablet, but you can get cheaper tablets and cheaper if not free paint packages if you search. I use airbrush and hard edged brushes mainly with custom brushes to finish things off with texture.

You have something I wish I had with digital art...your age! You are only 14 so if you practice you will be way better than me in the years to come! I started late to digital art...it wasn't around when I was a teen.

All the best and I hope I have helped a tiny bit :D

Hi mr. Farhurst,

Thank you very much for the kind (and fast) reply to my letter/comment! It's very nice to get answers to my questions of a professional. The answers are very useful and I'll make sure to use them in my own work ;)
I too have a Wacom tablet by the way and it's really brilliant I think!

It's very nice to hear that I'm young for someone who gets into digital art, however I won't become better than you. I'll make sure ;)

But thank you so much for your kind reply! It helped me a lot already!
By the way (if you're interested) - I've just uploaded my first digital painting. I thought, why not give it a try already Wink/Razz ?
