Andrew took a liking toward the digital design and the programs available for eg , photoshop,z brush, and painter11 because of the lack of rules as well as the availability of tools within to be able to customize brushes, and the 900 brushes available. Painter also allows saving of character styles within the program which the artist can refer back to ,for example going from a landscape sunset into a nightclub scene .Then back to a sunset . these applications for the sunset if saved are still readily available for use . Giving Andrew the artist a flow through style in which he can be recognised ,Also the use of easily accessible pallets ,viable for contrasting colours,for creating characteristic emotions and feelings within the image created. Easily a trait within Andrews work which he draws upon with comfort . His outlook on his work is to create a first person feeling. Putting yourself within the picture toward an element of a being within an out of this world element , using shapes ,colour,and composition , using emotional as a attribute.
Andrew draws upon self created shapes of form(also known as the shape shifter )as well as other things to create compelling images.Through hundreds up to one hundred and fifty layers .
