i4dezign73 & ifourdezign
Artist | Digital Art

With an extensive background in magazine publishing, ranging over a period of sixteen years, ifourdezign has attained a varying array of skillsets in both layout and print media.

However, away from the complexities of working in four colour print, ifourdezign’s personal passion, even since childhood lies with photorealism, particularly portraiture. Therefore in 2009, after the purchase of a small Wacom tablet, plenty of practice and a few choice words, soon enough, a new love affair for digital painting and portraiture was discovered. Which eventually, led ifourdezign to ditch the use of traditional mediums at home in favour of an iMac and the Adobe Creative Suite.

When describing myself, I would say that I’m a perfectionist, with a keen eye for detail. But, often or not, especially in deadline driven environments, you are rarely asked to utilise certain skillsets. This was particularly true for me while I was involved in publishing. There simply isn’t the time to spend hours working on one project, or the necessity to put such skillsets, like digital painting into practice.

Therefore, most of what I have learnt, over the years, has come from concentrating on doing the kind of work I like to do in my recreational time.’ — ifourdezign

Please Note: All TV inspired artwork is created using either Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator / 3D Software based programs. Any figurative content featuring actors has been created from scratch. ALL digital portraits are painstakingly painted over a number of hours, using photography for reference only. I DO NOT ADVOCATE PAINTOVERS (See my personal gripe with this on my feature page).

Why the two names?

i4dezign73 — is predominantly my Fan Art / Just for fun acc.

ifourdezign — is the name I use for commercial ventures. Always search for ifourdezign when seeking my art on other social media sites or for products from my RB Shop.
