Ever since 2004 Sheridan has been studying various forms of Digital Art. She’s been through nearly all digital art styles you can name; Anime, Manga, Vector, Photomanipulation, Logo design, Typography, Western comic, Fantasy, Dragons, Landscapes, Abstract, even the Yaoi phase. She has finally found her passion in Portraiture and the fine detail within Photo Realism.
“I started doing digital paintings since 2003 – just messing around with Photoshop 7. Art has always been a big part of my life. For many years it served as my outlet of creativity. From a simple sketch to a rendered portrait, I’ve always been able to discover a new technique when creating a piece of art.
Back in 2005, I decided to take this style more seriously, looking into more details, depth and color with each piece. I pretty much taught myself by studying other digital painters and their techniques and tutorials. It takes a lot of practice and research, but it’s well worth it in the end.” - Sheridan Johns
