Hi! Like many others i've been lurking around these forums for quite a while, being inspired and learning what i think counts as a fair bit. I like to think i've got an artisitc mind, there's alot going on up there and i've always had a desire to try and put it to media, the dream being to end up in the gaming industry, somewhere between concept artist and 3d modeller. From what I can tell everyone here is beyond talented, so aswell as my own blog thing, I thought this would be a good idea to gather critique, tips and the such like, i'll do my best to keep up and return the favour
The last 3 years have been spent studying at university, on the wrong side of the spectrum, doing things such as programming graphics and all that nonsense, only now i've graduated, have I had the time to get on with what I want, which is to build a porftfolio and improve my skills until i get to a level i can put the images in my head on to paper, to screen and so on, sadly with all that time gone, i feel old and i've not got much prior work to show, so what I have so far, is basically me, starting from scratch, as of August 2010.
First up is a bunch of Digital paintings i guess, as a begginner i'm glad to have something that looks like something down, i've learnt to reduce the use of burn, blur and smooth, a habbit i'm glad to kick early. All are either from photo reference or observation/ still life... next post will be my current attempt at posemaniac hand sketches, something i'm EXTREMELY poor at.
