Roberto Nieto
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hi! My name is Roberto Nieto and I live in Barcelona, Spain.

My main and “real” job (the one that pays my bills) is to design interfaces, web and mobile apps.

I’m an accessibility and user experience expert. I love my job, I love to organise interfaces and to solve the issues they may have. It's like sorting a big puzzle.

However, my true passion, hobby (and, sometimes, job) is to illustrate the nature, mountains, plants, rivers, clouds… You can see that the main protagonist of my illustrations is the majestuosity of the nature. This is my main theme, and I don’t know if some day it'll change. Right now, that's my passion and what I enjoy the most.

I studied art direction, graphic design, traditional and digital illustration. I have taken part in a lot of workshops: design of natural environments, landscape and fantasy illustration techniques, theory of light and colour…

Last but not least, I feel that the most important thing is daily practice. For me, this is the true secret about art and illustration: to persevere, to be patient and practise every day. It is the only way to improve your technique day by day!

Contact me if you have any questions or suggestions! Best regards!!

Current Residence: Barcelona, Spain
Favourite genre of music: Classical, Pop rock, ChillOut
Favourite style of art: Landscape / Fantasy.
Operating System: Jolicloud, Windows 7, Android

Hey! I love your work. I am currently trying to practice landscapes/scenery myself. Also, if you have any process videos, I'd be super interested in watching those. :happybounce:  Can you give me any tips on painting grass and foliage? 
Syntetyc Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Time ago, I made a video with a technique to paint grass. You can see here:…

But the best recommendation is to practice every day and be constant. Use pics as reference.

Best regards!
