Dude i commented on last page but having to comment again cuz everything since is even more ridic. How do you, i dont even, tell me something.
about 3 and a half weeks ago i was asked on my facebook page, if i actually worked at mcdonalds. Yes, I do. Full time, kitchen crew. I go to work, come home and paint, sleep for 3-4 hours and do this every day during the week. When asked why I worked there, I said I have to start paying for my diabetic supplies myself, because as of february 22 i am 21, and therefore no longer covered under my parents insurance. As of right now, its about 500 a month. I still live with my parents. O_O about an hour later i get a pm from wes burt, asking me if i had ever gotten comissions, and if not, if was interested in some. Ive been trading emails with him for about 3 weeks now. I told him what i was interested in doing. Work for wizards of the coast. He said i had a good portfolio, the only thing missing was some strong narrative/ thought out illustrations. he gave me two mock card briefs to do and here is one of them....
Just looked at your portfolio from beginning to end - You've gone from a pretty good artist to a bloomin KICK ASS artist! really inspiration looking through your portfolio!
good luck with the commision - what are the briefs that you have been given?
for some odd reason your work gives me the same feeling as yoshitaka amano's. ide like to see you push your work conceptually and flesh out your ideas more!
keep it up dude! i think your going to make a good name for yourself because your work is so unique.
Looks great man. That last lady figure up top looks really nice. Sure, her proportions might be a bit elongated, but I think you've captured the mood and pose of the figure well. The illustration looks really cool too. Maybe a bit too dark overall for a card illustration, but it could be a monitor thing. Good luck with your situation man!
nonono i love yooouuuu! gay secks and everay thang i dont even care!!!!
i love the feel of the card. but what good ole Jasper said, it might be a tiny bit to dark. shouldnt be a problem in the end since the card already has a wicked vibe to it. you got this.
keep killin it man, shit is tight.
You know I'm loving all this! Thanks for posting it all up, I've seen some of it on facebook, but the extras are always nice man!
Awesome Paintings :o !
Good luck with WotC, man. You definitely deserve a shot, and Wes will tune you up real quick. Of all the MB guys, I felt like he was the best at breaking things down in a way that really clicked. Now, if you feel like you're getting pretty good, hit up Coro and he'll beat you into a pulp of realistic expectations ;]
That gryphon pic just sucks you in, very large amount of potential. The dark one with the gargoyle is hard to read, but with a bit more to see, could also be really good. All in all, i think you have a voice of your own that should be heard, so i really hope you can get a shot at something better than flippin' burgers. Good luck, you deserve it.
quickie. bout 30 mins. obvious filter is obvious...
