Hello! My name is James Hopfenblatt, I'm 25 and Just graduated as an Architectural Studies from the University of Missouri.
As you can see, I'm very passionate about painting/drawing and would love to work in the movie/3D animation industry or even do some freelance Illustration.
Where I would like to be:
creating illustrations for magazines, books, etc.
character design interests me
Animation 3D an 2D
Going to Illustration Academy in June hopefully
Struggles: Lighting, Design, backgrounds, ideation.
Creating backgrounds is always a huge problem of mine.
Question: What field should I persue? I honestly love doing all of these things and will always keep doing them regardless of what field I work on, but which one of my skills is the most marketable?
enough talk!..here's some of my work:
Friend's CD cover
Illustration style attempt:
Pat Condell Caricature:
Character design/concept sketches: (personal too)
illustration/concept iea/personal again:
Creature design with spatula:

Some arch. renderings. the last one's not my design but my rendering. (the other two first ones are)

You've got some decent stuff going on in here, but there's a bit of a "scratchy" feeling to a lot of your digital work that's off-putting. It seems like your getting into all these little hairy strokes before nailing the main solid forms. You're also blending a little haphazardly in a few areas and makes it feel a bit muddy and unfinished.
Try to blend things solidly for a while, using a hard brush setting and hard strokes, with similar colours.

Thanks a lot Jason!...am definitely looking into all of the TAD, VLP or IA summer....will decide soon!. I'm also thinking some industrial design...I don't know..hahah I'm confused at the moment obviously.
@Jason Rainville...Thanks for the critique man!..thats definitely an issue for me, I think it has to do with my actual messiness..I can be pretty impatient sometimes ..I'll try to follow your suggestion...hopefully I'll figure it out soon!
