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?
