I've spent almost 9 months lurking here on DA, meeting folks, picking my jaw up from the floor at some piece of art I've seen here.

So I decided, finally, that I was going to take the plunge - bought my first tablet (Kanvus Artist 127 - which I believe is rather crappy in comparison to a Wacom).  No matter, I shall soldier on.

Hard to explain, exactly, why I'm doing this.  I used to draw my fingers down the bone with a pencil and some A3 sheets.  Grew up, got a job, got lazy... got bored.  I came across this site, I suppose, like I came across 4chan... by horrible accident, but a good one - like a slo-mo explosion of some irritating person's head.

So here I am... desperately trying to dust off my mostly un-learnt skills (because they were all replaced by technical crap), and my head only has finite space.

I am a South African man, more that slightly inundated by this thing we call "life" right now. Still, slowly but surely, I'm managing to get my stuff together and will be producing art very soon.

Thought you were from SA when I read the name Du Plessis. I Migrated to Aus in 01 with my family when I was just 12.

Great work brotherman, your work is impressive.
