I was drawing since I was a kid. Working in graphic design and outdoor advertising I couldn't miss CorelDRAW. I've started to draw in this program when I saw some amazing works of vector artists and usability of program tools. Portraits and landscapes, everything surrounding and inspiring. My drawing skills converted to vector as you can see by some water-colour effects.

The main thing is to start vector-thinking. Not only depict an object but create a method, a technique. Watching tutorials is very useful, take to pieces somebody else's work. Creating your own tutorials is the most useful thing, formulating your own method for yourself. By doing this you will promote yourself on the internet as a specialist
