Hey guys, I'm 19 and interested in getting into the concept art field as I'm sure many of you are. I'm excited to work with art in any way as a career, whether it be illustrator or book artist, but I think concept art is probably my best bet. We'll see though, as long as I can do something.
To that end, I feel I need to evolve from my years of doodling into a more disciplined study of all aspects of art. I haven't decided on a school to attend yet, but I'm looking for something in Canada (I live in Winnipeg). If anyone has any experience or suggestions in that matter, please let me know.
Here's my own crits of my art:
- Anatomy anatomy anatomy, I need to work on it. Proportions, movement and expression (facial and body) are what is most important to me right now. This is definitely the biggest flaw in my work.
- Composition is something I need to study more, I'm interested in the classic painters in this respect.
- More traditional work! I love my wacom but I really really want to do more with graphite and oil paints, it's an exciting idea for me.
+ I feel my strength right now lies in my rendering and palette selections, I want to bring the rest of the elements up in line with this.
Cheers for any C&C! I'd particularly like feedback on my weak areas as I've explained above.
