008 - Artist Spotlight - Dino Tomic


 

My real name is Dino Tomic. But I use the name Atomic circuS for my Facebook and Deviantart pages - because that's the name of my Tattoo shop.

The biggest motivation is hearing that I inspire other young people to pick up a pencil and start drawing.

I use a huge variety of pencils to achieve the wanted quality. I have almost every single possible pencil that has ever been created in my arsenal. But I like most are water color pencils and color soft pencils when it comes to traditional work.

For me the fun part is creating the idea and figuring out how to execute the idea. When the process is done, I just have to put it in paper. Putting it on paper is the easy part, because all the thinking is done.

The time you spend on a drawing is time well spent, never rush your work.

I always hated drawing portraits, because they were so hard to do when I was young.

2 years ago I did my first portrait after painting digitally/tattoo/airbrush for some years and it was incredibly easy compared to the other mediums.

I got so much great feedback that I just continued pushing my self on creating more and more and better and better portraits.

I like helping people as I was helped by others. There are no secrets or magic on how we work. It's just dedication and thousands of hours of work. And if my experience can help others I would gladly share it. Trying to help others is a big part of why I'm doing all of this.

No matter how many time I do eye drawings, I never get bored of them. There is so much you can do with eyes. And for some reason, it just comes naturally when I work with pencils.

After 20 years, I see myself, I guess I'm at the same place I'm today, still drawing if my health allows it. The same goes 50 years from now. I think I will be an old guy sitting somewhere and painting stuff.

When you do something this much it's hard to stop and you really don't have any reason to stop.
