    Art Journey~ My Time in the Arts Institute at Bournemouth~

    Hi everyone! When I first started this thread I just finished a Foundation Art year at Manchester Metropolitan University. That is when I discovered digital painting and so began my quest to improve and try turn digital painting into my main medium. I worked a lot in traditional painting and wanted to make the jump to the digital era
    This thread began just before I started my university degree in Animation Production at the Arts Institute at Bournemouth which is now renamed the Arts University College at Bournemouth. I have now finished my three years there and created a grad film in my final year. The film is not yet available to put up on the internet but I estimate it will be allowed to be broadcast around the summer of 2010. So stay tuned
    So this has been my journey from schoolboy to a graduate! And hopefully a professional
    I hope you enjoy what you see and perhaps see how I grew during my study years. As always, critiques are yummy for my tummy!!!!! So do feed my hunger!!!!! Thanks for watching

    Thanks for the comment! Good stuff in here. Are you using vanishing points for the environments? Some of them seem a little warped (unless you are going for that) so you may want to work on the building perspectives. I'm realliy digging the michaelangelo study and the recent character design.

    Keep it up man, you deserve more comments. I would like to see more figures, though it doesn't seem to be your focus, so I don't blame you. KEEP IT UP!!! You are obviously a painter, as I can tell by the last update =)

    Fishspawn - Thanks man. I forgot about the vanishing point thing. I was using photographs for referance which I relied upon too much So thanks for reminding me about that, Ive been meaning to better my use of perspectives.

    Pixeldragoon - Hey there, I havent got a focus yet. Im trying not to specialize too early and figures could help broaden my art so I'll certainly give it more go. Thanks for the encouragements.

    White Rose - Cheers again! Time varies on different paintings but I know thats not what you wanted to hear lol! I took between 10-16 hours though a few took about 5 hours. I used photographs for referances. Yeah, theres nothing wrong with using highlights that way, I was just acting a fool! Thanks for commenting!

    Yeah! I enjoy the kind of wacky-ness of some of your pics. The monster that you re-did and added the tail too is great, the warrior with the three arms, and the dream inspired ship are all wonderfull. Well done. I think the progression you have shown of the woman in the black dress is nice as well. She starts so bland and is full of flair by the third installment. Keep it up.

    merge

    p.s. Yeah I also need to say that it is nice to see someone else who writes to themselves in thier sketches.
