I present to you a part of my graphic works.
The works were created using the Corel graphics program (CorelDRAW and Corel PHOTO-PAINT).
Through work and study, I have made independent progress in discovering the possibilities that this program provides.
In making graphic works, I use drawing, photography, illustration and painting with mouse strokes.
Recently, I also have a graphics tablet, so I hope that this will make it easier for me to continue working and creating some new graphic works.
Below I have exhibited some of my graphic works created in the last 20 years or so, which were created from my original ideas and using a combination of various creation techniques.
I present to you a part of my works in pencil.
The works were created by drawing with a monochromatic technique, an ordinary pencil on paper .
My most common motifs were portraits I drew for family members or my friends. I would usually draw by looking at a smaller photo of the person being portrayed. And some works are created from imagination.
Most of the works were donated, so some were not pre-scanned due to poor equipment many years ago.
The drawings were created from high school days until about ten years ago.
After that, I drew with a pencil only sketches for graphic works.
My wish is to continue drawing one day even though I currently lack inspiration for that kind of creativity.
Although I have been photographing for more than 15 years, I have photographed more for the purpose of creating my personal family album, capturing places I visit in passing, or aiming to use photography as part of some of my design work.
I had until recently 2 Olympus compact digital cameras (Camedia C-220 Zoom and SP-820UZ).
Only in 2020 do I purchase a Canon EOS 2000D DSLR with a basic lens (18-55 mm). I gradually add the appropriate equipment such as flash, telephoto lens (55-250 mm), tripod, and other necessary accessories for, for example, macro photography, maintenance equipment and the like.
This motivated me to start learning about the rules of photography and how to take advantage of the opportunities that slightly better cameras offer. Of course, for my amateur photography, this entry-level model as well as the basic equipment is enough. Someone who does photography professionally has much better equipment. And with the lens, only the sky is the limit.
I'm just learning right now. I have enrolled and are attending several video courses. Through theory, I try to apply this acquired theoretical knowledge in practice.
I don't lack the will, so after the average amateur photo works posted here, expect better quality projects and photographic works in a while.
