Hi, I'm new here.
I've a few questions about my direction and ability in my work. Firstly I absolutely love matte painting and would love to do it for a living, but I also love creature design/FX. They are basically my favourite things in the whole concept/art entertainment/ vfx field etc. I know my environment work probably isn't as good as my creatures, as I only drew my first environment back in 2009, yep I'am an absolutely noob, I've never really been an avid traditional painter or even interested in environment work until I discovered concept art in 2009, as I've always been the guy who drew monsters and wierd shit throughout school, as I was heading into tattooing, just the pencil and paper, right up until I discovered Photoshop and all the other amazing tools, now I can just see all this freedom and complication and its left me lost.. What do I do now, and shall I go back to pencil and paper? My trouble is , I love it all, but reality is you cant really be good at it all, unless your Alp Altiner
..In terms of foundation, I'm more skilled in anatomy, sculpture than environment rendering, but truly wish I could do environments, but there's just something about them that I cant quite get, I think its the randomness of nature that's such a difficult thing to get across. I mean I'd absolutely love to be a creature designer/FX, but I truly cannot see such a job in this field, where as environments are much more sought after I've been told. I'm looking for your thoughts, if you would be so kind, after looking at my work, any pros here can tell me what you think, be straight down the line with me too please so I can come to some conclusion on what to do next and start refining my skills, and having a plan of action for myself. Or if you want you can rate my work 1 star, as a few others have. Thank you
