5 years til world domination!
I've decided to take the plunge and start aiming towards a proper career in art. Ideally concept art but anything art related really. Been saving for a while to go to Gnomon, but then I got a job as a 3d artist (with no training but enthusiasm and some general nerdery under my belt) and decided I'd like to go into something less visual effects related and more art based. So now I'm all about aiming for an Atelier. I'm hoping to get into the Florence Academy of art soon. Gonna apply for the spring session and see how it goes. I'm giving myself a year of doing nothing but Art and see how it goes. I plan to work my ass off and once I start to get happy with my standard I'm going to start applying for the ConceptArt Atelier. That'd be the dream, but failing that I'm still gonna get something concept art related if I can at all. I've been drawing like a mad ejit for the last two months or so and I'm going to get around to posting some of that stuff over the next while hopefully. Unfortunately I've got arse all time at the moment so it's likely that the posting might suffer (I can do anatomy studies from Bridgman on the bus but posting them requires some time at home with the scanner). Anyway, if ayone happens across this post do drop back in from time to time to tell me what I'm neglecting/doing wrong. And hopefully in about five years time (or so) I can have my dream job. Starting at 24 but I'll be on track soon enough.
Also, to get the ball rolling here's my first attempt at a photoshop self portrait. Trying to get to know the Wacom.
Ramble over, go about your business folks!
EDIT: Last post added at the top for the sake of SB thumbnail. PLEASE LOOK AT LAST PAGE FOR INFO ON PIC BELOW Original self portrait has been moved down a few posts if anyone is looking for it

Cheers Blue Severin. I've got a load that I wanna put up, but most of it is sketches and I don't have scanner access at the moment. Will get on it when I can though.
Thank'ee MadAdder. It's a first go at actually painting from scratch in PS, I've used it before for work.

Anatomically flavoured sketch vomit to follow....

Thought I'd throw this up too. It's an excercise from one of seedling's posts on concept art. Seek her posts out for some of the most well laid out and consice beginners excercises I've seen. This is a normal object conceptifericated into something else. Not really all that imaginative a conversion in this case, but I'll be doing more at some point.
Stupidly for something so ID based I didn't construct proper perspective and my sense of perspective is a wee bit dodgy without the helper lines, so I'll have to do that better next time.

Two slightly older graphite drawings done from photos. Lots to learn. First one has colouring pencil, then basic texture added in PS. Both on A4 paper

It is quite arevelation to look back on old shit alright. What part of the country are you in? There's a drink/draw session in Galway on monday coming if you're about. The PS textures need a lighter touch in those last pics. I like the large size portrait - "Karo-Lina".
Hit me up on facebook if you have an account. Cheers!

I'd love to, but I'm in Kildare (-.-) Everyone I've been talking to recently is talking about facebook... sudden resurge of popularity much? I'll have to get me one of those.
The texture was added right at the end as an afterthought. Should use a bit of a lighter touch alright.

Bridgman studies. And a stylized life drawing. Gotta keep drawing. Most of the Bridgman is done on the bus. Two hours a day of uninterrupted drawing with very few distractions. Bee-youtiful

Life drawing from photo... I will get back onto concept stuff. But it might be a while cause I'm trying to prep a portfolio for Florence at the mo. Charcoal on newsprint
