    Smile Hi I'm Reed, teach me all you know...

    Hey everyone my name is Reed. I have now been stalking around this site for more then a year, though i just got my account and decided to start posting. I'd like to give you a short intro to me and what i hope to accomplish as i begin to post here.

    I'm a undergrad Junior illustration major at a small state school in NY. I love concept art, video games, and the like and would be highly interested in pursuing a carrier in the field. Last semester i had an extremely troubling time coming to terms with my current artistic endeavors. I ended up proving to myself that i pretty much hate most of the work that i did before that point, with a few exceptions of course. I was also highly criticized by my professors for my stylistic approach and shallow concepts. Pretty much i was freaking out. I've now come to terms with my past mistakes and intend on kicking the shit out of my future. This is were you guys come in...

    I'm coming to you now in order to try and help me recover from hell. I will be very active in the critique center starting very soon, posting WIP's and sketches to try and figure out my direction. I will be posting most of the work I'm doing for my two art studio classes (intermediate drawing and painting and Illustration 1) for further criticism from you guys, i would greatly appreciate some help.

    For a little more background, I am a strong believer in a good balance between traditional media and knowledge mixed with a understanding of the digital. In my work i strive for the extension of traditional styles with digital means. I worship artists such as Craig Mullins, Samwise, and a long list that i have been fortunate enough to see on this site. I'm good with a pencil and ballpoint pen, I use Photoshop (CS2) and am getting familiar with Corel Painter (9) as we speak.

    I actually have an interesting question as well. Anyone know some good web hosts? I'm in the market to get meself a site.

    Thanks and i'll be seeing you all around!

    well lets hope.. you have a "teachable spirit" .

    create a sketchbook thread to keep a progress of your art.. and it would be nice to see some of your current stuff to see where you are. also..dont forget to read some of the stickies...

    So post up some of your art in the critique center. and also CA will show you the way.. but its up to you to walk the path. And its not an easy one.

    welcome to ca and good luck to ya

    hey all thanks for the official welcome. the Avatar is my work yes... but its not as good when you look at it up close. I am sorry but I made that post without anticipation of what crap would come down on my head a few hours later, i will have work up as soon as i can but i just found myself rushing on a few different projects. Both of which you will be seeing when i manage some time

    P.S. yeah, samwise and mullins are worlds apart....doesnt mean i cant love them!
