My name is Celeste Hansen. I am a student studying Interdisciplinary Visual Arts (basically a studio art degree) at the University of Washington.
Sadly, the professors there don't bridge the gap between fine arts and digital arts, so I am in dire need of serious critique and mentoring for the digital art that I've been teaching myself for the past few years.
It is my hope to become a concept artist/illustrator in the video game field, and I know that I have a lot to learn... but I'm not sure where to start. Any feedback would be so very, VERY appreciated.
Also, I know a lot of the stuff that I have is fan art of existing characters, and I've heard that it is a bad practice to have fan art in your portfolio. Is this true?
Thank you very much!
Note: The first three are speed paints studies, all right about an hour.
