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!
