What sparked your interest in digital art?

Since I was a child I was surrounded by art, my mother is a painter and crafts teacher, so I grew up in the middle of paints and brushes but despite that, I learned to draw by myself, it was something natural since I was a little boy.

What does your workflow usually look like?

It usually starts with a sketch of the idea on paper, then I look for references that can help in the project, after that I think about the best technique and method for execution, then the production begins and then finalization.
