Jelly of your skills bro, also in my first year of college. Also, Id love to see some of your animations!
So I found this really cool website called Character Driven. Its a site where you design characters using their random character generator.
I feel like I have a comfort zone which I don't venture out of enough so I want to do as many of these as possible.
The first character the site generated was a: Colossal Vivacious Nomad. And I came up with this.
It's definately something I would never come up with and I had a blast doing it. Also learned a ton about horses!
These traditional painting's are real nice. Your digital paintings are really cool to. Wish I could give some pointers but I'm not too experienced yet.
