Hey there!

Welcome to one of my various corners of the web!

Call me Ranga. As like many others, I have been drawing since I first laid hands on a pencil. It's not a serious hobby, however I do produce my better works late at night often watching Castle, Supernatural, The Mentalist, Bones, Person of Interest and so on, on my laptop as I sit cross legged on the couch and sketch out what flies across my imagination.

If I'm not watching crime/supernatural series, then I spend my time listening to the widest range of music when I draw. Mainly consisting of Blues, Bon Iver, Ben Howard, JBT, Gorillaz, Anberlin and music/artists from the early 90's backwards.

I have a major love for listening to people and their stories, observing the world and everything apart of it, the elderly, war, destruction, grated cheese & carrot, photography, Disney and Studio Ghibli.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask ^,~

So my lack of absence is evident.. yet again :iconsweatdropplz: A few things have been happening and I haven't been feeling to well so to speak. So I've taken a short leave for now from a lot of things to gather myself to see what path I want to walk, even if that means going astray from the main highway and making my own path. I'm also thinking of taking a break-break from dA for a while to just improve my art in general but also because this place has changed so much and there has been a tonne of unnecessary :censored: going on.

On another note, I have just started a new technique that I'm liking so far
I saved you from perdition by Rangamatanga

Basically you draw the silhouette in black and then go along with shades of grey colouring it in.. all in one layer too. On the second layer you add the more detailed part such as clothing. You finish with a new, colour layer- drawing over in one colour and keep adding in colours you want, usually not needing all that many.

That's all for now, 
Leash :iconbaibaiplz:
