I’ve always been interested in art, but over the years the hobby faded. It was a couple of years ago that I began to feel an urge to draw and paint again. Digital art enabled me to paint without the complexity of setting up an easel. At this time I also came across ImagineFX.
I’m 37, a father of three and I work as an IT consultant – which isn’t especially fun or rewarding. In Portugal 25 years ago, drawing for films and video games was not a career path – at least, not one known to me. Today I regret not taking the professional art path and although a part of me keeps dreaming, it’s probably a bit late for a career shift.
I do it for myself, for fun and as an escape from stress. I created a website at www.nmp-art.com and I also try to regularly publish my sketches on www.nmp-art.tumblr.com.
Keep up the good work and congratulations on a great magazine. Nuno Pinto, via email Beren replies: Thanks for getting in touch, Nuno. I really appreciate letters like yours – to know our little mag has been a companion to you over the past couple of years is rewarding for us. Art – digital or otherwise – is a healer, and if IFX can play any part in giving you time off from the stresses of the daily grind, we’re doing our job. And thanks for sharing your art with us, it looks like you’re well on the way to mastering digital. Keep up the great work.
