We are all artists, and as such, it is of our interest to get noticed and our work to be seen. This series of articles have the intention of giving promotion to independent artists, focusing on comic creators, cartoonists, illustrators, animators, etc. It is open for all, so if you have any suggestion of who you think should be featured or you want to participate (yes! you can suggest yourself!) make me happy and drop me a note!
My name is Paolo Alinea, also known !artofalinea here on DA ~ friends on this site call me either by my real name or "Arto"...whichever works I guess haha!

I've been drawing ever since I was a kid, but only started taking it seriously when I was introduced to comics, particularly Gen13. During the course of two years I have constantly practiced and tried to refine my talent by tackling the many facets of figure drawing, as well as challenging myself by doing backgrounds at the same time. I love doing fanart

I'd like to think my style is unique ~ with a tinge of Western/Eastern influence. I also think of myself as versatile, being able to handle a few different illustrating techniques to prevent myself from being one note and also give some of my watchers more variety.

Nowadays it's all about digital ~ and while fairly new to digital coloring/painting, I'm a fast learner and think that I improve with each and every new piece.

Currently I'm in a comic project called Sword Of Sin, which is scheduled for release at a local artists convention here in New Zealand this coming July. It's really refreshing since it has been years since I last did sequential art, as well as a break from digital and getting back to my penciling roots
