Hi there, My name is John but my designing name is Oakanshield. I've been designing since I was about 15 (i'm 36 now) 
My favorite thing to design are Posters for movies, whether they are up and coming movies or ones that I would like to see like 'Blade VS Underworld' 
Blade VS Underworld Version 3 10000views Special by OAKANSHIELD
What I do is a hobby of mine but I would like to design on a full time basis, so if anybody from the movie world would like to sign me up, then drop me a line. 
I've never done commissions or sold my work for money. 
and it is my ambition to one day earn a Daily Dev. 
About a year ago I earned an honorable mention for my competition entry for Screeners EMP contest here on DeviantART the entry was called 'Darkwater'

However recently I came third in's contest in which I had to design a poster that combined 2 movie's into one, mine was 'sleepy hollow and the huntsman'

I've also recently won a contest here on deviantART by :iconallart-r-us: the contest was called weirdly wonderful and my entry was 'smoke on the water' 
Smoke On The Water - Inspired by music 3 by OAKANSHIELD
The last of my achievements falls to my work on a Paul Mcgann poster for 'night of the doctor' as it will be featured in magazine called Vector (a members magazine) I'm really excited about it. :la:

What's to say about me....
I first started designing about 15yrs back. The only program I had though was paint shop pro 7. I played around with it for a long long time until I got the bug for designing. Then it kinda took off..... !st uploaded art here to devART nearly 2 years ago... That was a comp entry for Linkin Park…

wish i'd of gone to college to study it and go on to university.
I'm self taught. Mainly using tutorials and books.
I've got photoshop now and the tutorials are in abundance, where-as PSPro7 tutorials are like looking for a needle in a haystack!
Would love to design movie, dvd or game covers for a living... Though writing my stories (and one day scripts) are a life long ambition.
Thats about it.
