Tokyo Typhoon [with poem] by Tiffany Atkin

there she stood
agaze at sparks
feeling nature’s tear
dance on cheeks
with quickened hearts
never feeling fear

    LOVES THIS SO MUCH! Can i ask where you started with this.. and how you built it up to be this amazing!

  • thanks for all your lovely comments on my work paula. the short answer with the ‘how’ question is…. first of all get yourself a copy of the programs (photoshop & illustrator), then GOOGLE is your friend. search for tutorials and DO them. start to finish. that’s how i learned the programs…. trial, error and experimentation. and the beauty of digital art is that the solution to a mistake is only a control/apple + Z away! you will soon develop your own style. i started getting interesed in this stuff when i was in high school too, so you can definitely achieve if you believe! goodluck!! ♥
