Thank you everyone!

It's been a long time since i've been active here. First of all, i want to thank you all for your support and nice wishes, it makes me happy to see all your comments, faves, features, even a new DD! You're an awesome community :D I apologize if i can't reply every comment, they're just too many now to respond, but i assure you i've read every one of them, with a smile in my face :)

Craft Change

Photomanipulation will no longer be my main activity. Since the creation of this account my goal was to be making Digital Painting, however, i didn't count with a Wacom and so i decided to do Photomanips with a mouse. This changed around a year and a half ago, when i finally got one. I've been studying all about art and design since then.

This doesn't mean i'll never do manips again. I'll occasionally make some, and now with a Wacom, they have Leveled up to Matte Painting level (yay!).

I'll be moving things around here for a while, my career as Digital Illustrator and Concept Artist has begun! So expect lots of surprises and good stuff coming from me in the future :)

Vanleith's Profile Picture
Carlos Iván Basto Durán
Artist | Digital Art
Hi, my name is Carlos Basto (Carlos Iván Basto Durán). I'm a self-taught Illustrator and Concept Artist from Mexico, i love videogames, asian culture and i'm always excited to improve my craft. Vanleith is an anagram of my second name "Ivan", replacing the "I" for a lowercase "l" and adding "eith" at the end to achieve phonetic harmony. My dream jobs are to work with big videogame companies (Square-Enix, Nintendo, Sega, Capcom, Bandai Namco, and many more) and to be making my own videogames someday.

Your artwork is truly amazing and I was wondering if you have a Youtube channel of these works being made?
