8. Which new skills are you working on currently? Are you learning some new software or new techniques ?
Currently I am not working on any new skills. But I am planning to learn how to use the Graphics Tablet and creating 3D objects with Blender© (or) ZBrush© .
9. What software you wish to learn in the future? Any reasons behind it?
I want to learn how to make 3D objects with ZBrush© software because searching for the perfect stocks is the biggest obstacle for me. Sometimes I give up on making projects just because I couldn’t find the right stock image. So I want to make my own objects and put it the way I want & that will take my works to the next level.

If anybody wants to learn how to make these kind of artworks and don’t know how to start, Let me tell you it’s not that hard. Just learn the basics first. Before you do anything , watch Youtube. There are a lot of good channels like ” PixImperfect , Nemanja Sekulic , Photoshop Training Channel “.
After you learn the basics, go and test yourself by watching speed art videos. If you feel that the videos are too fast and you are not able to learn from them, it means that you didn’t learn the basics well.
If you can learn from speed arts videos then you know you are ready to create some amazing artworks.
