Hello everyone

      My name is Raymond Jackson or RJ aka Razar1,
and I am a digital artist .
my specialties are digital freehand portraits ,graphit portraits,and digital illustrations . There are times I will incorperate all three to illustrate a story .
  the style of my work ranges from a classical painted look ,to a near photo realistic one .My goal here is to move and entertain you .So feel free to look through my gallery and be entertained. 
 Digital painting by hand is an emerging art form in which traditional painting techniques such as watercolor, oils, etc. are applied using digital tools by means of a computer, a digitizing tablet ,stylus, and software. This is done directly on a PC, by using a Wacom tablet, a stylus pen and painting software, like Adobe Photoshop, or Correl painter. The Wacom tablet can be compared to a canvas
,paper,watercolor paper surface. The stylus pen is the pencil,pastel,paintbrush, etc.
If anyone would like to contact me for a commissioned piece ,you can contact me by E-MAIL at rjrazar1@gmail.com
