My name is Rick. Im a 17 year old Florida State University Freshman currently, but I really want to go to Ringling for Illustration and Computer Graphics. My girlfriend is going in this year as a photography major. I am thinking that maybe if I work on my art alot this year, I can perhaps get a transfer...if accepted, of course.
My forte in art is mostly conceptual art, anything ranging from warriors, soldiers, weapons, mecha, airship designs, and other vehicles. I like to do alot of modernish art, like soldiers or cars, and sci-fi art, like futuristic soldiers, weapons, and machines. I also have drawn fighters that use old fashioned weapons, but I dont like the fantasy genre unless i get to put a bit of my own spice in.
I also do comic books based on a set of animal characters. Its meant to be a funny strip, and in the past Ive done 65 4-5 page "episodes". In other words, they are lengthy [I draw about 20 boxes per page on average], not the three-box web comics. Ill post some of them up sometime.
I describe my art as American-comic book style with anime influence, since I started with anime and drifted more into realistic stuff.
I have decided on this SB mostly looking for critique from the other members of these forums, as I have seen some pretty awesome stuff on here. I think my areas of improvement may be in anatomy and dynamic poses, mainly. I can draw a person but I couldnt draw him doing a backflip or throwing a baseball or swinging a sword for my life.
I like to use references right now, either photographs or sometimes other people's art. I want to drift away from that.
Without furthur ado, I present to you my sketchbook: heavy critique encouraged, links to other people's stuff [when helpful or related] welcome.
