Fabrizio Panattoni is a self-taught digital. He trained himself by following a lot of courses for Photoshop. He now has the means to express what he feels through his works.
He approached the digital world in 2010, thanks to a friend of his. She showed him her digital pieces and he fell in love with that type of art.He decided to deepen his limited knowledge of Photoshop and developed image processing, and started to combine photographs together creating his first amateur “puzzles”. Day by day, he improved his works studying new techniques in terms of photomanipulations (the art of merging parts of different pictures together) and retouch.
He felt more comfortable with his art so he started to publish his pieces over the Internet on DeviantArt.com. Fabrizio met a lot of people in the Deviant Art community who so graciously helped him to improve even more. He reached almost two thousand viewers that stimulated him to improve his skills in order to transmit his emotions to the audience. That’s why he finds himself still reading tutorials and accepting constructive criticism from people who are captured by what he’s creating.
Many of Fabrizio’s creations are portraits. He loves to re-paint beautiful women’s faces and put them into new scenes. This is the main way he shows what he feels inside. In fact, his art has mostly an emotional style. He’s also created dark, gothic, and fantasy pieces. His subjects offer a vivid range of colors, dramatic lighting, and a painted look.
