I'm currently a student at Uarts in Philadelphia studying illustration and I hope to be working as a concept artist one day for a video game or movie studio. I have about a year and half left before I go out in the real world so I'm trying to get my skills up to a respectable level before then.
I'm just going to post some things I've been working on recently but you want to check out some more of my work I have a website at www.artofhowie.com
Environments/ landscapes are one of my favorite things to paint
here is an assignment for school where we have to include 5,7, or 9 figures
this was the first one i came up with
but i thought that i should probably include full figures to benefit from the assignment so i did another one
Both are wips, but i think im gonna go ahead with the second one
here is an update on the quote piece
i want to change the wine glass back to the short glass from before, and instead of wine maybe some hard liqueur. The far arm looks like shit, appreciate any help. Chair is also looking flat so ill have to mess around with it
For another class we have to create posters to promote ourselves
and here is something else i considered using for the poster too
Im really liking your landscapes, so nice and abstract! cool work! I think your portraits are dark and moody, with some minor anatomical issues-for example the guy drinking alchol, his head is either to big or his body is too small.
This was a school assignment where we had to pick a short story and then come up with an illustration to accompany it. I chose "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury.
You can read it here http://www.wssb.wa.gov/content/Class...0Day/story.htm , but to sum it up its about a class of nine year old kids who live on a fictional version of Venus. It rains all of the time except for every seven years when the sun comes out for one day. It follows one girl named Margot who gets teased and eventually is locked in a closet by her classmates during the period the sun comes out.
I didn't want to give anything away with my image because I imagine its the first thing the viewer is going to see before reading the story. Hopefully after reading the story the image will take on more meaning.
