Dante was born in Japan but raised in America till he was 8. His parents met in japan, during their last year in Business School. They Stayed in japan For a few years Until Dante's birth and moved to America when his father Got a Business opportunity of a lifetime. And When they arrived in America His father began the business and it became a Instant success.
Years pass and Dante's left Hand starts to have issues. His Fingers became numb and unable to move properly. It was also his Writing hand. For a year and a half his hand had gone through 5 surgeries. Which where very expensive. After the Fifth surgery his fathers company was starting to fall. His father Was starting to drink heavily. And after the Sixth Surgery his father was out of money and his business Fell and entered Bankrupsy.
Soon the Bank and Hospital where sending out collection notices, and where making constant Collection calls. His father came home late one night heavily drunk. And started beating Dante's mother. Dante intervened to stop his father, but during the conflict his father cut off Dante's right ring finger with a Cigar double guillotine-style cutter. And also crushed and scraped his left eye. And caused Permenate Damage to the eye socket.
Dante's Father was soon Arrested and Sentenced 20 years in prison. Dante and his mother Moved to Japan and stayed with His grand parents and payed for his sixth and final Surgery. he gained some strength in his hand and fingers but not well enough as a complete fix. He learned how to Write with his right hand, and later as the years went he found out he was able to draw with his right hand pretty well.
But As his Middle school years and Highschool years came, he became quiet and less outgoing. being the odd one out, he didnt like putting him self out and Being Constantly ridiculed. He spent most of his time studying, and became skilled in programming knowledge.
A year or two after he graduated highschool his mother became very sick. She had a Brain tumor at a stage 2. So she soon started Chemo Therapy, which Went on for 4 years. Dante worked as a employee for a Video game store that had its Employees Dress up as Video game Characters. He became the Infamous Altiar of the Assassins Creed Series. He fit the part well, but hated every minute of it. But he needed the money. When the Chemo therapy was done, it had little effect on the tumor. It entered the 3rd stage making it that She had to stay at the hospital for Daily treatment.
Dante Went to a College A few blocks away from the hospital, since his mother Begged him to go to one. But he didnt want to be away from his mother very long. He Visited her Every morning and evening. A year passed and She Soon Died when the treatments no longer affected her. His mother wanted Dante to go to a school where he can use his artistic talents, so he can have a happy life. and Not have his past dragging him down. After His mothers Funeral Dante started wearing His mothers wedding ring. Just for him to feel calm and alright. Just like what his mother did in the past when he was a kid. A Few months later he applied for (Insert :icontheart-project:'s School name) and Went in Majoring in Mangaka, and Videogame Design.

It just takes practice is all,I've always balanced out my digital coloring with my traditional coloring. That way you get more skilled in both,but you don't lose one of the other skills.
