Hello and welcome to my DeviantArt page/site, I am Darkgargos or just DG if you wish. I'm a self taught artist that has dabbled in art since I was young, I mostly did sketch work. I haven't taken a single professional lesson in my life because I like discovering, learning, experimenting and improving on my own using whatever methods I feel work for me. Since I don't have any professional art education of any kind I just sort of wing it went it comes to art. I do however take the time to check out tutorials and instructional videos when I can since it is good to pickup on skills and techniques used by other artists. For me art is merely a hobby for recreation and enjoyment. I don't take it too seriously and my skills may be lacking because of this, but I still push myself to improve when I can.
I like to do illustration and graphics mostly, but other various stuff can be found here in my gallery as well. I found that digital painting was my first and true passion and what I truly wanted to do after a lot of experimentation. Even though I come from a sketch/hand drawn background I feel digital allows more freedom and the same principles can still be applied. I just like to create whatever I'm in the mood to do and have fun experimenting without the burden of being shackled to any one style, method or genre. I do prefer illustration, but I still like to dabble in other stuff so that I don't get bored.
For those that don't know I am colorblind and also suffer from other eyesight problems like general poor eyesight and low depth perception. Being a visual artist and suffering such things is very difficult as it severely handicaps me and causes me to make mistakes and not catch them, but my passion for art is what helps me continue forward and manage around these weaknesses.
Now I don't expect everyone to enjoy or like my work which is fine, everyone has their own tastes. My work is also not perfect by any means as I'm no professional just merely an amateur artist, but I mainly do this for my own personal enjoyment as a hobby and to keep myself sane in this crazy world.
Just so people know I don't take requests or commissions, so I must please ask that people don't bother me with that stuff. I don't do this for a living nor do I have a career in art, nor do I have any interest in that. It's a personal hobby for me for my own entertainment and will always remain so. I do this for fun, not fame or recognition or money.
I do also want to note that my work that I share here is for the most part free to use as long as no profit is being made off of it. I also appreciate credit if anything is used. Some may wonder why I would be cool with just giving my work away, well I do this mostly for fun and don't make any profit off of it myself and if my work helps others in terms of inspiration and creativity then I'm more than happy with that outcome as that is a part of being an artist.
I hope to continue to improve and share more wonderful work with you all in the future. Create, Inspire, Improve...nuff said!
