What mediums do you work in?

I am a professional digital artist! I work primarily in photoshop, using a wacom cintiq.

What photoshop brushes do you use?

Kyle Webster dry media brushes! I freely adjust the opacity and flow of my toolset to achieve a variety of textures and transparencies.

What's up with that username? 

Proteids are a classification of salamanders with external gills! They are not quite Axolotols, but aren't they cute? My username is an intentional misspelling so that I could have a unique and consistent ID online.
