    Where will you take your artistic talents?

    Some of us will work in Movies, Some of us will work as Fine Artists, Some of us will work in Games and Some of us will work in Advertising.


    I really want to work in games because I've loved games since i knew what they were and I want to make FPS games like Deus Ex or Doom or work for a company like Blizzard Drawing elves and orcs.

    In a sentence or 2 what would be your ultimate project and why?

    Where will we take it? Lol, lots of people here are already there. I'm happy where I'm at, making concept art for Netdevil and learning the ins and outs of this little niche of the industry. I'm slowly working on my own projects as well; it would be cool to see one of those other projects blossom into something that I feel I can let loose on the world, we'll see.

    Once I get competent enough at art, I'll be working on my graphic novel project. About 60 chapters, 3 books and about 5 years to finish.

    Should be fun.

    I think the better question is, where can your art take you?

    No but seriously, I would love to do the same thing and create some amazing artwork for games, but I'm just not cut out for it. We've had several threads emphasizing how demanding that part of the industry is, about crunch times long hours etc. and i dont think I could hang with that. My parents have always wanted me to be an engineer and I was hoping on finding a good job that could involve both, but that doesn't really leave a wide selection. I may end up getting into architecture, but I'm pretty sure pay isn't too great for that unless i design something fricken amazing.

    I'll have time to decide in college.

    No reason not to start now. Graphic Novels take a lot of storywork before you even start making thumbnails. Thumbnails are not so much about being able to draw realistically, so as long as you have a decent handle on compositional placement you can do it. And luckilly, as long as you stay simple with the thumbs, you can swap them out for better ideas as your ability progresses. By the time you feel that you are artistically ready to go in and do the fun fancy looking stuff you'll have the meat of it already figured out, and the longer it takes you to get to that point, the more thought out the initial stages of the Graphic Novel will be.

    Where?

    Out of my current job, and into a career where I can let loose the beast that is my creativity!

    OH YEEEEAAAAHHHHH!!!!

    What I meant was start drawing and producing the comic. I'm already working on the plot and script, and I just finalized the last bit of my major plot points a few weeks ago. Once I can get people to look like people in my drawings I'm going to start working on thumbnails. So far it's been six years of story planning and major fixes to get to the point it's at now.

    Didn't want to derail the thread, but I just wanted to make it a bit clearer. Thanks for the concern though. Was just about to work on more chapter fleshing out.

    Any time I can sit at a desk and draw all day and make a living, I'm happy.

    That is a considerably scaled-down version of the original ambition.
    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Oh man, I have ideas! I am just very grateful for what I have done thus far and where I am now. I draw and paint stuff and wish to do more of it.

    I want to draw well enough to illustrate the arse-kicking wonderful stories I will write. I also want to write well enough to justify the arse-kicking wonderful pictures I will draw.

    (If you want to know my ultimate dream job, it would be annoying the heck out of the animation team making the movie of one of the arse-kicking wonderful stories I wrote, based on the arse-kicking wonderful pictures I drew.)

    I think my next area of focus will be lighting and characters. i've been hammering on environments for awhile now, which i will continue with, but characters and lighting will be my focus on the sideline.

    I think its a bit easier to get your drawings to look like people, rather than getting people to look like your drawings... not everyone is that eager to jump for the plastic surgery

    I would first like an art degree with my biology degree, and maybe then try and combine it and do things for biology books or similair.

    I want to finish my graphic novel too!

    I also love games and animation so after my personal project is done I might consider concept art too.

    I would eventually like to do some really awesome, highly artistic entertainment projects and employ and work with a bunch of people that I really respect and admire, and just make some really kick ass shit.

    I'm taking my artistic talents with me out of my comfort zone, it seems. Lately I've been doing a lot more to actually get closer to the dreams I've had for so long. Even my moping about my age is getting a nice fat kick from my determination right now.

    So! Off to art school to integrate two disciplines! Whoo hoo!

    World class architect, of course!

    Aside from buildings, it would be awesome to help in the design of film/game environments, as well as drink coffee and paint in my garden in the mornings.

    Best of luck to us all! CA definitely has the most talent around... it's crazy to think where everyone will be in 10 or 15 years. Absurd.

    If I had choose something very specific then it would be environment concept artist. I try not to be closed to any other possibilities though. Besides... I get bored when I do one thing all the time. It would be perfect if I could free my experimental spirit .
