JD Blanco
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Born in the Dominican Republic (DR) and raised for 8 years, I move to the state of NY in 1989 and the rest is history I suppose. I got into art/drawing when I was 10 years old. The first real drawing I ever attempted was that of Gosling, Dark Wing Duck's adopted daughter, and it came out very well, so from then on I began drawing things I saw in coloring books, comic books, and pretty much just any flat 2D image. From drawing so much by viewing, I began to memorize a lot of the techniques that it no longer was necessary for me to look at pictures, but rather just draw from my own imagination, a task I yet work to perfect even today. It wasn't till I arrived at college that I was introduced to PhotoShop, and I think that it's a rather understatement to say that I fell in love with the program. From all the classes that I took, and all the programs that I learned in all my years of college, PhotoShop was the only one I never lost touch with. It became my best friend, as sad and pathetic as this may sound, but I sought to make of PhotoShop as much a part of me as my own hands. It's my strongest tool, and lately I've felt that I've gotten to a new level of confidence in the program, and I only hope to grow more and more each day. Of course, I can't claim to have gotten to that level on my own; God has been there with me throughout my journey, and without Him I am nothing, nor can I accomplish a single feat. He is my inspiration, my aspiration and He has provides me the skill that I need. Thank you Holy Father! Amen.

Hey there, It's been a while again and I sort of haven't been on tumblr that much lately because of problems.

But Happy Birthday! Hope you have a great one too! :D

Wow thank you so much, I greatly appreciate it. You're very kind. It's sad how many "friends" forgot, yet you who is more of an acquaintance remembered for the 2nd year in a row. Hope you're doing alright.... And when is your birthday?? God bless you!

Oops, I meant I haven't been on DA lately, not tumblr. My bad. ^^;

Anyway, you're very welcome. It really does suck, that's true. I've had that problem before and the only thing I could do was move on unfortunately. Thankfully, it doesn't happen that much, but it still does sometimes, sadly. I mostly remember people's Birthday, and exactly remembered your was coming up! :D

Don't worry, I'm fine actually. I just have some problems I need to worry about. That's one of the reasons I haven't been on DA lately.

And God bless you too! My Birthday's actually next month on the 24th of August. :)
